why do you bother chiming in like a snarky retard? Why would i read a goofyballer article when i explicitly stated trump has set the world record for lying and goofyballer is infamous for spamming boring or fake news links? I inserted a common issue with these reports in the form of "i'm guessing". the issue was so common that the article itself had to clarify it didnt make the mistake. tilted donkey cordially pointed out that they addressed the issue but for some reason you felt the need to chime in like a snarky douche

you're really bad at pretending to be unbiased

none of this would qualify. thats what is so interesting about both your and kerwow's fascination here. you have a place to do exactly what you do and neither have ever posted in a way that's allowed in the hypothetical forum, yet you never shut up about it

oh and happy new year

You don’t need the scientific method to go through a list of lies.

You just need what they said, and the truth.

Pretending like Trump is not constantly lying every day, many times a day, only shows poorly on you and your critical thinking skills and ability to parse information.

It doesn’t matter what methodology you use, unless it’s make believe Funtime land, Trump is going to trump Obama and any other president. Probably going to compete well against any public American in the history of the world. Your objection is like asking for a recount in an election where the winner got 90% of the votes with a total margin of fifty million votes. You can recount them until the end of time.

Some very strong work there. Is this the kind of stuff we can anticipate in the alt-politics-forum?

So by everyoneís bar for the new forum your posts about goofyballerís post would all be deleted? They are just trolling. You admit the article is right but didnít read it and admired you only posted so you could attack goofyballer.

If I had to guess that certainly would not be acceptable in politicsForU (new best name) or Politics.

correct, my posts directed at goofyballer, kerwow, loki, and wookie wouldnt qualify as i understand it. thats a good thing

the reason i point out kerwow and loki is that nothing in their posting history qualifies

Re: New forum for arguing about politics, society, and culture?

An announcement of sorts: I've decided not to move forward with a new forum. The simple reason for that decision is purely selfish. The more I ponder it the less it seems like a good idea to me. The poll results make it look plausible, but this thread itself makes me think it's just going to be a huge pain in the ass with little real upside. I am still intrigued by the idea in theory, but the reality seems pretty far removed from the ideal in my mind, and I can't muster up enough of a belief that it's really going to be worth it, at least not for me.

I realize that any number of people may view this entire recent set of events as a bizarrely entitled and narcissistic endeavour on my part, to which I can only sheepishly plead guilty. But I was offered the opportunity to do whatever I wanted, and so I have, both in thinking about it, making this thread and poll, and now in deciding not to do it. I appreciate the trust and confidence that Mat placed in me in allowing me to do this, which I didn't really earn and which I have probably already demonstrated was misplaced. In any case, I'm sorry if I wasted his time or yours. I appreciate all the time people spent offering their feedback.

I'm not going to open this thread again but feel free to tell me off as you wish via PM or anywhere else :P
