Re: POG Politics Thread

ok. that was the last long post I want to write. I am now going to ban this account too because I have actual work to do. Mass-shootings get me worked up if that isn't obvious.

You guys can go back to putting your head's in the sand and calling me crazy for a while.

So just to be clear, no punitive measures will be taken against the truther posts OR the islamophobic article?

Bc we’re not going to keep pretending after that last post that Dustin self banning is in any way punishment.

Re: POG Politics Thread

And you completely ignored what Mets posted, which I did not find ambiguous by any stretch. These things are good?

Re: POG Politics Thread

I think being a conspiracy theorist is a nice gig. I mean if you are some extreme religious zealot with a cult and whatnot, and then someone comes by and just blows up the tenets of all you bought into, then you are in a real sad place. That must be rock bottom.

But if you are a conspiracy theorist, it must be like an all you can eat buffet. If one of your theories gets exploded you just move on to the next one. These theories are basically disposable. And, you can just cling to hope with one small anomaly for any incident.. So, you don't really even need to try hard.. Great hobby for lazy people, imo

I do feel sad for these people though, as they must be pretty easy to profile.. never quite fit into the real world; every boss they ever had was always wrong, people don't "get" them, and on and on... Then "poof." you discover some conspiracy theories and delude yourself into the, "Hey it is not me. It is them, and it has been all the time...." Yeah, that is the ticket...

Seems kind of sad, really..

Re: POG Politics Thread

I’m not really sure I understand what people even mean anymore when they say “conspiracy theories” or “conspiracy theorist” anymore. Like that entire Russia-gate thing was a conspiracy theory (that very much turned out to be total bull**** btw) and I didn’t see anyone have a problem with amp destroying the thread with 100 posts a day about it for like 6 months.

Re: POG Politics Thread

I get that POG is a chill place but the only good response to that kind of nonsense luckbox posting is putting the foot down on it immediately. Not trying to debate/argue with it as that's what the trolls want you to do.

Because the conspiracy theory was reported as fact by much of the media
