If you're not already aware, another Trumptard troll has infected the place:

'Elvis' needs to leave the building again.

Thankyouverymuch! X3

Since the real Elvis went home, only the likes of El Vez, The Chin et al can play The King: and this retard has no right to.

How disjointed are the FSTDT forum community and the community that posts here?

I looked at the forum and a lot of the user names don't show up in the comments on recent quotes here. So are they different communities or do the same people just post here and there under different names?

@dxdydz

IIRC, they started out many moons ago as the FSTDT forums, but after some split that was long before my time they became "Frequently Questioned Answers" - FQA for short. Many FQA users once used FSTDT, but left; again, I'm not quite sure why, before my time. The reunion with FSTDT seems to be an attempt to heal old wounds, at any rate.

@dxdydz: Uilleam nailed it before I could get to it. I won't get into the drama that caused the split, but the people involved are gone now. Before the split, there were forumgoers, mainpagers, and users who did both. After the split, the people who visited both dwindled to near-nothing. I'm hoping that will change. Either way, the forum people are friendly and super awesome, so if you want to join 'em, don't be shy (...because that's me!).

Also, I will have the FSTDT Awards tallied up for realsies next week. I got swamped with work stuff and immersed in programming around the time it came for me to tally votes. I'm tuckered out today, but next week should not be as busy (i.e. not giving exams in three classes and having to grade them—I literally just finished grading them early this morning).

A quoted incel has appeared to dig himself deeper.
For the moment, I find it enjoyable., so I will not ban it... for now, at least.

So how old do the submission have to be? I've considered doing some "Throwback Thursday" quotes and submit comments from at least six months ago.

I have also considered some quotes from the Children of God cult, but they are from decades ago, so I'm hesitant on that.

@Into the Unknown:

I've submitted comments from a few years ago in the past, so six months should be fine. It depends on the quote source though, sometimes. I don't tend to quote from news sources if it's anything older than a month, maybe two months, but if it's a forum or an article on a blog I will submit it if I deem it worthy and if it is not old hat. So, if a source from three years ago is a news story from The Guardian detailing something fundie said by a politician or whoever I won't submit, but if it's from a forum post on Godlike Productions or if it's a blog piece from David J. Stewart on the evils of short skirts I will.

That incel's Arrogance of Ignorance is truly astounding. Might actually even out-Dunning-Kruger Vox Dunning-Kruger.

@Into the Unknown:
I once submitted extracts from Caamib's years old manifesto because they were both central to and extremely representive of Its worldview. (I was actually surprised we did not actually have them)

Just remembered I haven't said hi over here (and I haven't introduced myself *cough*).

Hi! I'm a Malaysian Chinese Buddhist (in name anyway, my parents aren't particularly religious either), graduating this year, and just around average, I guess. Not really good with commenting and stuff.

I remember about a post involving wombats being mistaken for pigs (related to religion too), but it's two years ago, so I'm not sure if it's a good idea to submit it.

There is nothing you can say that I haven't seen before...no tactic you can try. I've been clowning dipshits of all shapes and sizes since the days of dial-up


...so, despite the massive amount of evidence that destroys it's 'argument', it's not prepared to admit it's wrong in word, action & thought. Indeed by it's own admission, it's not here for a reasoned debate - and admit it's wrong, despite said evidence which proves it wrong - but to troll.

It's gotten boring now.

Welcome, Bedhead! Glad to have you hear.

I think if the quote is crazy enough, you should try it. Otherwise, you should consult what Yossarian Lives posted above you.

Since you are graduating, do you have any plans for the future if you don't mind sharing?

More sentences without discernible meaning.

By the way:

"it's 'argument'"
"it's own admission"

It's "ITS," you fucking idiot. "It's" = IT IS. You don't even know how contractions work (which is something they teach in 3rd grade over here in the U.S.) and you're trying to go the pseudo-intellectual route?

Aaahh!! The past few days I've been playing with my shiny new toy: the VPS that FSTDT's going to move to this fall!! ...and that has (ironically) made ignore the actual FSTDT site. Oh, and I 'borrowed' fstdt.org for my new plaything.

@Moosekun: Troll go byebye (yet again). Keep up the good work!

@Pharoah: Actually decided to let that stay because 'D' is the first letter of my real name.

On that note, I'm most likely going to implement SSTDT by exporting Shy Says + Distind Says for posterity, then excising it all from the database, using that little corner of it for for SSTDT. My blog script will be functional enough to replace Shy Says by then, and I've already got a 'zeroeth' section pre-made for miscellaneous things like these Meta / Off-topic threads.

Also, I'm over half done counting the FSTDT Awards votes! On top of my shiny new toy, I also got literally distracted by a minor emergency: my husband broke his arm — while I was tallying votes. I'll have that finished in the next couple days when I can pull myself away from the VPS.

The VPS is down right now, because my host's default configuration runs some atrocious quasi-custom (?) Linux distro based on CentOS that is apparently ~*~optimized~*~ for The Cloud™ or something similarly asininely buzzwordy. I should have stuck with a different OS template instead of trying to earnestly give it a shot. I'll bring the VPS back up tomorrow or later tonight when I replace this... whatever it is... with something much more familiar to me and more along my tastes, i.e. Debian GNU/Linux. (Hey, they insist on calling themselves that, not me.) IDK what this trainwreck is doing on anything offered by such an excellent, friendly web host. Despite the mixed reviews I read about their VPS plans, so far I think they're worth paying a little extra for (unlike anything from our current host, which is just overpriced). ASO is much more accommodating and permissive with what they'll allow than you'd expect at first glance. I'm not getting paid to say this. I love these folks and highly recommend them. Seriously. I hosted my personal / half-private domain with them for several years and only cancelled it to purchase a VPS for FSTDT. (There'll be enough room on it for the random stuff I had on my old domain, anyway.)

Oh, another reason I took the server down until I could get Debian set up is that I got sick of drive-by Chinese bots trying to access SSH to hijack the server as well as send spam through an SMTP server I hadn't even set up yet in the first place. (Yes, ~90% of this was seriously from Chinese IPs, though for a while much of the SMTP-spamming was from, randomly, Estonia ...mida kuradit?) I first noticed this was going on when SSH logged me out for being idle, and I had over 3,000 failed SSH connection attempts after I logged back in ~45 minutes later. It has not relented since then. The hell?? I am not even exaggerating. When I did Web development for a living back in 2004-2008ish, the fashionable thing for 'net numbskulls to abuse was the utterly useless Windows Message service that Microsoft stupidly enabled by default. Though incompetent attempts to hijack servers with SSH was just starting to get mildly bad.

But now like ten years later it's apparently 400 jillion times worse. And over 9,000% more Chinese. Also, FFS, I'm generally a borderline paranoiac when it comes to security, so I went through the trouble of disabling root access as much as feasibly possible, even on that preloaded disoperating system. In plain English, the Crazy Chinese Computer Conquistadores are wasting their time mindlessly trying to login as root in the first place. I'm gonna move SSH to a nonstandard port when I set up Debian, then configure IPTables — blech — to be a proper firewall, drop the small remainder of SSH packets to other ports, drop other unwanted packets to unauthorized ports in general, and ignore ICMP chatter altogether. That way there won't be a response indicating whether anybody's home.

I may have taken an extended 'vacation' from this stuff, but I've had enough experience in the trenches and on-and-off afterwards to know that these things will put a near-stop to these harmless half-assed 'attacks.' Even if they pose no threat whatsoever to a competently configured server, they still waste bandwidth and server resources all the same. I just didn't realize how extreme it had gotten, though I do suspect that the IP range which two of mine belong to is being specifically targeted to some extent for some reason. Still, what really baffles me is why this would ever occur to any significant degree at all. For this to be anything close to a worthwhile effort, there has to be a fairly significant number of very badly configured servers, beyond-stupid passwords, and just not caring. (Why would someone just not care about having their server or site 'hacked'? You're paying for that shit, dude.)

Wow. I rambled.

@shy:
I had already banned Tim the Troll, however, he continued posting under IP 162.252.85.172, using the acronym seen above, lacklustre insults and BenShapiro as username. I banned him again, but I fear we have another case of an obsessive troll that is far too dense* to realise that he it is not welcome here.

*there is more than ample evidence that his density exceeds that of a stellar black hole in his thread.

My, but someone's TRiGgered! >:D

That's why Dr. Stuart Ashen makes 'errors' in his videos on his channel on YouTube. As a social experiment.

To see if retards react in the predictably, mentally handicapped way they do in the comments.

His Ph. D is in Psychology, by the way.

Said retards know the only possible way they can prove the likes of him wrong: stop being mentally handicapped, and start being normal, sane people: who would never so much as think of behaving the way they do. He doesn't, so what's their excuse?

There would be a lot less trolls on the internet, if these retards stopped being mentally handicapped.

Because those who aren't mentally handicapped wouldn't care. If it's getting on your tit's, then you're mentally handicapped.

Like I say: there's only one possible way the likes of Ashens & yours truly can be proved wrong. Hurts this badly how we've nailed it, doesn't it? Someone's arse is the same colour as Ken Hams, post-Bill Nye debate-based gluteal evisceration.

Irrelevancies that TRiGger the mentally handicapped? Only those with a sense of humour wouldn't care about such.

Because it's such an important thing when it comes to a pic of Elliot Todger destroying a subhuman's 'argument'.
