Re: Ms. OOT 2018 Discussion thread.

Fabian,

My understanding was that this was a Howard doesn’t post politics in OOT freeroll. However, without mutual agreement by you and Howard re: the ruling/interpretation criteria, judges must go by a literal interpretation of the stated terms of the agreement.

As I pointed out in my earlier post, that interpretation allows Howard essentially unlimited politics posting ability as long as someone else makes a mention of politics first.

It's not like y'all weren't warned. Way back in the nomination thread a few prescient posters lobbied hard for Sandy from the Bronx to be banned from the competition lest it bring POLITICS into OOT. Lo and behold, they were right.

For the record, the Nazi meme you quoted was in response to this:

Am I a 'political poster' for responding to DuckSauce? Is DuckSauce a political poster? If the mere use of the word Nazi makes a post 'political' then we're both guilty. Why single me out? Hmmm?

The other comment that you stuck in there was in response to someone who said they were to the left of Ocasio. This is literally impossible so I threw out the free toilet paper line. Funny thing, I'm actually in favor of free toilet paper for all. True story.

BTW, great job Lecktor! The fact that you have people scouring voter roles for badthink is hilarious. I thought banning Chebiscuit (is that political? Uh, oh) would maximize feather ruffling but the voter list thing is even better. WP.

Forgive me, Europe here. Is the Politics Forum as atrocious as this thread could lead one to believe ?

I have been refranchised, but now I feel that perhaps none of these thots are worthy of my vote.

Safe to assume that Lektor saw that AOC was winning even with his dumb rule change and decided to change them again in the hopes that would make her lose.

Lektor,

You are putting way too much effort into this. Just change it to “your vote will count so long as you don’t vote for AOC” and be done with it.

I like the approach recommended by jman220 here: simple and effective. There is a small chance that politics posters might vote for someone other than AOC, but I think it is small enough to disregard.

I'm game for this. I'm sadly furloughed and have way too much time on my hands.

Lektor - please use your software to post a list of all new posters in the matchups so that only new voters need to be checked to see if they have 10 OOT posts.

El D,

Obviously Lektor can do whatever the hell he wants with his contest, but I can also laugh at his ham fisted attempts to control things resulting in multiple failures and repeated changes after the fact. At some point you gotta just take the L, roll with things as written, and learn your lesson for next time.

People on the far left cringe at the thought of legitimizing a colonialist, capitalist, and anti-democratic government like exists in the US by even voting (though they may now do so begrudgingly in order to fight the rise of fascist candidates like Trump). They certainly do not choose to govern as part of such a system, even to work to change it like AOC is doing. She is only far to the left relative to the US's ideological center, which is pretty far the the right. She is not close to being as left as they come, and most people I know are to the left of her.

Re: Ms. OOT 2018 Discussion thread.

I want to thank everyone for their contribution to this long overdue OOT drama, the politards for coming over from their sub forum, the OOTians for taking non polarized positions, it feels like one of those fun family guy cross over episodes. I felt this ty was in place even though we're probably only half way Ms OOT/times the rules will change.

A running tally of poliguys banned would be a nice addition as a way of keeping track of our martyrs. We've all worked hard to make sure this will be the Ms OOT we will never forget, I suggest having a beer to enjoy the fruits of our labor for a while so we can continue with renewed spirit. Also thanks to prana for mentioning that Im a pedo, for me personally OOT drama is never complete without this claim popping up.

Re: Ms. OOT 2018 Discussion thread.

Hey guise. This is not a troll post. I asked my boss, a very successful capitalist in his early 30s, who purposefully does not follow American politics, if he knew who AOC is because I wanted to show him the "new party who dis" tweet. His response was "Yeah that girl from the Bronx who I want to marry. She is so beautiful."

Hi Mojo,

I was looking in this thread for the voter list, and came across your post (also in this thread!) while looking for it.

You seem mad, but I hope this helps you understand better what happened!
