a reminder to the primitives on Skins's island

After so many years of overwhelming dominance on this site by your kind, it seems an equilibrium's been reached between the two sides, and if the trend keeps going as it has been, pretty soon decent and civilized people will attain a majority here.

I must remind this is your real-estate; Skins created it specially for you. Not us. You.

Such a gift shouldn't be lightly spurned.

It's getting pretty boring here, and so I invite all primitives who were once members to get back here, to join in the debates, the discussions, so as to excite up this place again.

Lefty is petty and childish, and that is something that will never change.

8. It'd be nice, seeing familiar old feces again.

Such as LetMyPeopleGo, meowmenow, Attera, Cesare, the old bat, Floyd Turbo, graham4anything, i verglas, that fat guy, Atilla Gorilla, liberalguy, JoeHill, cilantro, Argentina, Immacolata, and too many others too numerous to mention.

And oh, MrsCorpio, who promised back in late 2016 to school us on the elections, but who never did.

If any of these people left under unfriendly circumstances, they need assured all is forgiven, so please come back.

I think we will be getting a whole new crop of Lefties as the Presidential elections get closer.

14. Sorry,

but most of those posters are so incredibly vile I'm happy to see them gone from here or DU. Now G is an innocent who's simply been misled.

Scorpio is a racial instigator whose absence should be celebrated.

DI was doomed from the outset. Maybe Skinner is getting a little income from ads, but I figure any day it'll be shuttered. He may have had sincere intentions when he started it; you know, to allow differences of opinion. However, the majority intolerant members of DU wouldn't even allow him to do that without giving him shit.

27. ".....Scorpio is a racial instigator whose absence should be celebrated....."

I agree about MrsCorpio being a race-hate instigator, but he DID promise to come back and school the rest of us about the elections of 2016, and never did.

And so I wasn't surprised when he never found the author of that famous threatening letter to the bravenak primitive either, even though he promised he would check into it. He never even checked.

I suppose one can reasonably castigate MrsCorpio for being a race-hate instigator, but I fault him more so for being full of hot air.

5. But there is a real danger this place could turn into an echo-chamber.

We NEED disagreement and dissension here, to keep things animated.

I could never figure out why Demos and primitives are afraid of contrary viewpoints; after all, they suppose they're smarter than we are, and so should be able to top us every time, in disputes.

The site had great potential but Skinner doesn’t seem to want to put any effort into it. For example it might help if he got the formatting tags to work again.

The drawback would be that in no time DI would be a liberal echo chamber just like DU. Conservatives would be so outnumbered that they would be booted off DI so fast your head woukd spin.

15. Gee, I wonder why people don't join.

With you calling them primitives and every second thread title with "lefty" in it.
Lmao.

There are 3 or 4 who've done nothing but insult me since my first post. I don't care, I laugh at them.
However if one were to observe from a distance these 3 or 4 people would certainly turn anyone off from joining.
Then you got the trolls and socks. So easy to spot but they really think we don't know.
Oh well.

21. True...one only has to

read the first three forums (News, Politics, Culture) to see how unappetizing most of the Righties here make this place to anyone from the other side.

And what I'm actually seeing is bad enough...I have a few tRumpies on ignore so I'm not seeing all of it. Can't even imagine what a shitshow it really is out there.

19. When DI first came online

many of the DUers called it a "sewer".

I suspect it was only because there were Rightys here, not exactly how they acted, because I didn't see a huge problem with how they acted.

After the election, it did turn into a sewer. It became a nasty stinking hole of ass-hattery. It was like the floodgates of hell opened up.

Now? Now it's a sewer. Righty doesn't want to debate or discuss...he only wants to insult, troll, and gloat.

For the most part. Some Righties are still decent people. But the vast majority are nasty.

So you want to "excite up this place again"? Whatsamatta....things getting too boring in an echo chamber?

Well too bad. Not a whole lot of people enjoy swimming around in a filthy toilet, which is what this place has become since the election. And for anyone who's going to ask why I would stick around a filthy toilet, I've placed some of the worst turds on "ignore" here. DU is just as much an echo chamber as DI is, only in reverse. If you're not a Liberal, they don't want you there.

23. ".....Some (on the other side) are still decent people. But the vast majority are nasty....."

One is compelled to ask, "Well, who started it, all this nastiness?"

I'm old enough to remember a time when one's politics was no big deal; being Republican or Democrat was about as important in relationships and associations as whether one was a postage stamp collector or a coin collector. A difference was obvious, but it was no big deal. There were more important things in life.

In my life, this changed in November 1980, when Ronald Reagan landslided the incumbent president.

I don't remember gloating about it--in real life, the only thing I ever gloat about is when I, a deaf person, tops a hearing person in understanding a situation--or even commenting much about. After all, I'd been on the losing end myself many times, and knew how it felt to be humiliated.

But I was stunned at the vehemence of the Reagan hate--and even more so, shocked at all the glee and jubilation of the other side when he was very nearly killed in an attempt to assassinate him.

That was when I realized there was something truly sick about half of America.

During the 1980s, I stood helplessly as old friendships and associations fell away, always in bitterness about this Republican-Democrat divide. I think 1992 was the last time I attempted to be a friend of a Democrat, which failed, she being too hostile to anybody not like her.

I gave up. After the election of 2000, it became pretty obvious I was fated to never have a Democrat as a friend or associate the rest of my life, and so I resigned myself to it.

Shortly thereafter, I discovered Skins's island.....

Based upon what Republicans have been called, on what Republican officeholders have been called, on what I as a Republican have been called, all my own name-calling of Demos hasn't been nearly the same thing.

Not all Demos are hostile--I give the examples of the ramparts dude here, and Satan's kid, and of course Welles, the orson dude--but for the most part, I'd just as soon avoid the rest of them, as they aren't positive, friendly people.

24. Who started it???

Really? We're gonna play that game, are we?


OK this is what I observed.

Before the election, righty and lefties got along in a more civil manner. Yes, there were the occasional skirmishes, but nothing like one wouldn't expect on a mixed politics board. Some poking on each other from both sides. Things were more equal then.

After the election, tRumpies came in with an attitude and gloating and a general air of nastiness. Because their guy "won". And the nastier tRump has become, the nastier they have become. Like they've been given permission to act like a bunch of jerks.

Claiming the lefties started it when most of them have GONE would be ridiculous.

If driving the Left away was the intent, then Righty got what he wanted, OK? And now he's bored and has nobody to fight with. Even now there are a couple on the Left that Righties keep picking on, alerting over the stupidest things (like "commercial spam"...really?????)

You guys want discussion and debates? Well then act like it.

The signup process no longer functions. That’s why all the Leftys you guys got FFR aren’t coming back anymore.
