I'm not convinced of some large hack at the moment. But there is no low that the events of this year can't sink to. Edit: Honestly, I think it's pretty real now.

Hopefully the electoral college makes a better choice than Trump.

There is something wrong with the second page of this topic.
1 2 1 2
I am supposedly on both twos.
The comment section is blank.

The error does not seem to affect other topics.

PS: Now it works, but displays one post too much.

That doesn't help. I'm writing a PETITION AND I NEED TO KNOW WHERE TO ADDRESS IT TO AND A DECENT TEXT FOR IT!

@SpukiKitty

The electoral college not voting for Trump would help a lot.

https://petitions.whitehouse.gov but this looks like it's only for American citizens. And considering that a debunked conspiracy theory can make it this far on the site I don't know how useful it would be.

I persononally can't help you as I have a few other writing tasks on my plate right now, but if you ask for help or information on /r/EnoughTrumpSpam they might assist you, as this seems to be Reddit's largest anti-Trump sub.

@SpukiKitty: I understand you have good intentions, but please stop spamming the rest of the site. Most people come by here, so they'll see it. I'm also strongly considering and working out the details for a "Stop Trump!" link for the top of the page.

@dxdydz: There's still nothing in the queue. I even did a manual check with SQL.

Hmmm... :/

I'll try again, maybe posting from a mobile platform is the issue.

Edit: I reposted it.

@dxdydz: Still no dice. Sorry, man. Try from a regular computer, or post the info here and I'll manually add it and give you credit.

"Try from a regular computer"

Unfortunately I just did and that and it didn't seem to help. Here's the info:

Fundie: John Gabriel

Not to be included in the post: There is a lot more where that came from but I think I'll just post the two relevant Reddit links I posted here earlier in that quotes comments.

Here you go. Dear God, I'm still watching this video; this man is a fucking nutter...

@shy

"this man is a fucking nutter..."

That's an understatement. He makes every group of neurons in my brain that stores info about real analysis convulse and all simultaneously undergo apoptosis. And occasionally everything else in my head does that too.

Oh fuck me with a cactus, he says imaginary numbers don't exist, that sqrt(2) isn't a number, and that all of calculus is a lie... I'm going to go curl up and die now.

12/10/2016 6:15:07 PM

wut... but he uses limits in his...

12/10/2016 6:18:37 PM

@shy

"wut... but he uses limits in his..."

But he says the epsilon-delta definition of a limit is a lie made up by moron mathematicians! He makes zero sense, he's pure crazy! Apparently, and I'm not surprised, he also says that all of Cantor's theorems are a lie... A real nutter indeed.

Oh, and thanks for the help. Next time I try to submit a quote (and I have no idea when that will be) I'll probably drop a line here (or this thread's future equivalent) to see if it made it into the queue.

12/10/2016 6:24:13 PM

shy

No problem, and I'll be here :)

Edit: I decided to move this wackjob to the fundies section for more exposure and because he's totally a mathematics fundie (and our very first one to boot, even though the conspiracy-theory overtones are definitely there).

@Mister Spak

"Did you evict anonymous coward? I haven't seen it/them since you took over."

That report of an appearance by Nameless Coward was in a previous not-'STDT' thread replaced by this one.

You have yours truly to thank for reporting him. To say nothing of his b&hammering by shy. b^_^d

...BTW, the last time Jerky appeared here and previously was eleven days: the longest gap between infections by him.

I'll give it to New Year's Eve, but should Jerkoff be conspicuous by his absence by then, there's something else to celebrate: as per Distind's permanent removal of His4Life earlier this year - and she hasn't reappeared since - he won't be showing his fundie face here again.

The move is sensible.

12/11/2016 2:17:12 AM

@Mister Spak: Sorry I missed your comment, man. And, yes, I did.

I did some troll-purging, including him / them, Pepe, and Jerry. I'll probably be a bit quicker to the draw with trolls in general because I don't have Distind's patience, and they tend to stop being amusing to me pretty fast.

@shy

"I did some troll-purging, including him / them,"

That's unfortunate. I use this site to keep in shape for real life fundies. Him/them were an excellent sparring partner.

Jerry was just a joker, he wasn't a real fundie. Him/them was.

Also people from forums who ban everyone who disagrees with them will be claiming we ban everyone who disagrees with us.


12/12/2016 10:16:09 AM

shy

@Mister Spak: I'll probably let the next one stick around for a while. I probably was a little too trigger happy when I purged the trolls, because there were so many of them on the site at one time.

As I experienced once again while compiling samples of nominees, >this in reverse< breaks a post. Can this be fixed?

Seems that Jerry has evaded his ban*:

http://www.fstdt.net/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=122978&Page=1#1997906

He hasn't got the hint.

...oh, and perhaps there should be a time limit on trolls: say, one month, or unless they either don't admit they're wrong when the overwhelming evidence to the contrary is so obvious that even Stevie Wonder can see it (I refer you to caamib, and his continually spewing his same old same old 'talking points'), or they just shitpost. Fundie or not.

Certainly when they've been here too long; PROTIP: His4Life. How long has Jerky been spewing his hypocritical BS in FSTDT?

I'd say the only exception should be if the quoted fundie actually deigns to show their face(s) to try (and no doubt fail) to counter, 'argue the toss', or further dig their hole of FAIL. I refer you to NeoMatrix of late...!:

http://www.fstdt.net/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=122976

Oh, how he continues to make a complete arse of himself.

But otherwise, why allow a steady ship - especially a newly refitted one with a new command crew - to be rocked further by disruptive elements that would've been permanently removed before now in other forums/boards? [/TimeToTurn]

@Anon-e-moose

I concur, trolls with something to say and at least an attitude of discussion are one thing, chan`s little shitgolems like certain amphibian based meme`s harrasment of our site is another. Enough from the frog.

I sometimes get "ostracized" when I submit comments. It doesn't get posted, and I'm suddenly in "Log In" mode again. Then I can't log in and I can't post in not-logged-in mode, or as anonymous either. It usually lasts a couple of hours.

If it's something I'm doing wrong, I'd want to know about it, so I can stop doing it. As you've probably seen, I love hanging on this site, so to be "ostracized" feels really, really bad. :(

@Swede: Try this.

1. Log out, and close all open browser tabs and Windows for FSTDT.

2. Empty your browser cache and delete your cookies. (Use Google to find more specific instructions on how to do that for your browser. If you can't find any useful instructions, tell me.)

3. Close your browser (completely exit the browser altogether, closing all of its open windows and tabs), then re-open it.

4. Go to http://www.fstdt.net and try to Log In again. See if the login "sticks" and whether the comments issue is fixed. If you're still having this issue, please let me know!! (I enjoy your comments, BTW.)

@Anyone Else: If you're having this or a similar issue, also please let me know!!

Hey guys, I have the flu :( Since I don't feel the best in the world, I'm going to take a break from my admin duties for the next day or two to rest and get tipsy in da club on Nyquil. Your new mod Pharaoh Bastethotep (welcome him!) will be filling in for me for the time being since Ravs is more of a programmer and backend dude. Pharoah can approve quotes and update the nominations list. But don't pressure him — he's armed and dangerous with a banhammer now after all ;)

I'll still try to keep tabs on this thread, though, and respond to comments as best I can.
