Imposition was banned before, because he was behaving the way he was behaving this latest time.
Ha asked to be reinstated, and I reinstated him without a second thought.
Which goes to show what a soft-hearted pussy weakling idiot I am.
I get really peeved when my goodwill gets shat upon.
Not that it's anybody's business, but there it is.

No. Leadership does not involve explaining shit to anybody. That's what leaders are for. To take care of this stuff.
Unless you want one of those lame, democracy thingies. If you do, well, you're gonna be disappointed.
We do something close to dictatorship here.
We still need some practice though.
It's not easy being a dictator when you don't really want to be.

FWIW Imposition and Vigilance may come back, any time, after a week.
I always hope for improvement. I always deal with its opposite.

Interzone / Worst News Headlines.
« on: April 23, 2014, 04:51:58 PM »
Headlines are getting more and more bizarre, over time. Utterly ambiguous, crazy-making, and reality-warping. The story comes in a close second, full of spelling errors, inverted grammar, and utter nonsense...

Family members of a stabbing victim remember stabbing him.
"Oh, yes", said his mother. "I remember stabbing him now..."

Quebec City is the best city in Canada to be a woman while Edmonton is the worst.
Male tourists considering a sex change might want to visit QC after the op.
But before visiting Edmonton, might want to undergo a sex-change-reversal operation first.

What is shocking is that the content of my posts seemed to rarely even register.
I went to extraordinary lengths to discover how much of what I was writing was getting through.
I discovered that almost none of it was, and that people in general, were unable to recognize much of anything through the wall of judgment that each one erected between themselves, and understanding.

This fabulous internet age is ironic in its being the only age of man to have completely shut down all communication, while simultaneously making it easier than it ever has been before.

Just goes to show: make something too easy, and the whole reason you'd do it in the first place gets forgotten.

Communication has become a complex posturing act, rather than the sharing of information it once was.

The admins had posting accounts and were hounding me from thread to thread, waging all out warfare, trying to make a fool of me. They didn't realize I was already a fool, and so all their efforts came to naught.
Anybody who could post the things they posted, and not immediately get banned was obviously an admin.
All it took for me, was a pleasingly laid-out style.
It's the weakest excuse I've ever seen.
But a funny one :)

Very astute. That is where all my research has led me, too.

What I very often find, is that most people who ask questions, aren't remotely interested in learning what they don't know, and instead use anything they can get, by way of an answer, as ammunition to destroy both it, and the one offering it. Transcix used to do that regularly.

It is useless, reasoning with such people. They are simply unable to grasp the perspective you are reasoning from.

When you base all of your 'reason' upon a false premise, you can 'reason out' anything at all, except reason.
One such false premise being 'equality', which means, to such people, that if they don't already know it, then neither can you.

Here is a post I made on another forum, after receiving two warnings about using line breaks.
I figured it would get me banned, and sure enough, it did.
See, on other forums, even the formatting you use can attract the Gestapo...

"Have you ever noticed how, in order to type anything on a forum, you have to do it inside a box?
If you use the post-quick-reply box, it is a very small box.

I tend to arrange what I type, so it fits inside the box. It looks better, to me.
This involves using line breaks, to make things fit.
It is also a matter of style, and the overall appearance of the text.
Long, long lines, confuse the eye, and one's place gets lost, when flipping to the next line.

Some people become upset by appearances. Sometimes, very upset.
In fact, so upset do some people become, that I will soon be banned for typing in a way that suits me.

Such is life, and if you don't hear from me again, well, good luck, and all that."


The post was deemed illegible and very hard to read.
Which left me wondering who was trying to read it. Maybe a cockroach?
So think yourselves fortunate to be members of such a forgiving forum.
It could be a lot worse!

Sure. by learning how to listen to it. Not that that improves it, beyond at least allowing it to function.
Intuition is what led me to my wife. No way would I have done a complete U-turn in my life, solely on the basis of a lucid dream, had I not trained my intuition to speak, and kicked my ego into a corner.

Crows play, without having to have anything to play with.

Intuition is probably of the mind. But it works instantaneously, undirected by the 'I'.
Ego is the director. The manipulator. Nothing it does, it does for free. It always has its own interests in mind.

Intuition is neutral, and very much more perceptive than ego. It is always the first thing to happen.
But overly-used ego ignores, and eventually becomes oblivious to, intuition, blanking out its messages.

Once in a while, ego and intuition reach the same conclusion, but if that happens,  ego always gets the credit.

Intuition is really nothing more than the ability to see what is there, which is why it happens so fast.
No processing has to take place.
Ego decides what it can do with what is there, to better serve itself, and sees only its use, rather than what it is.

I would add: a 'contribution' does not necessarily entail writing essays, although that is good, as much as it means contributing something of value.
A comment that does no damage, a one-liner containing insight, even a word of praise, from time to time.

Aha! We're not all zombies here then. Not quite. Not yet.
Intellect does nothing if it fails to inform intuition, which does nothing if it fails to inform action.
The notion is to be what you regard. Toss out any separation between it and you.
If you're sitting in your brain, where, exactly, are you?
Not in the world. Not in Reality.

I see that contributing doesn't feature on the radars of most.
It's free, so use it up, mess it up, attach no value to it, and leave.
There's something amiss with that.

In a moment of clarity, I realized this:
People mostly read what I write as if that is what I think.
They are wrong. What I write is what I am.

What use is it to write what you think of what you think somebody thinks?
Being able to differentiate between some random fantasy that happens between somebody's ears, and what life has led them to communicate, is probably a very useful thing indeed.

Humility is the most important quality a man may acquire. It does not result from thinking.
It only comes from being what one becomes, through the hands-on living of life.

Each member must do his bit, by himself, for himself.
If he has any energy left, after that, he may enjoy himself by doing whatever he enjoys doing.
What is to be avoided is multi-million dollar rescue operations mounted in order to try to save losers who embark upon ocean voyages on rubber air mattresses.

You're on your own. Set sail, have adventures, but don't take a radio to call for help if things go pear-shaped, along the way. Make stupid mistakes and nature, itself, will slap you down and eat you.

The ocean isn't interested in what you think of it. Neither is the wind. What you think means nothing.
Do your best, do it 'til you die, or fuck right off and quit bothering those who do.

You're doing what so many intellectuals do. Defining something you don't begin to understand.
I am the polar opposite of a solipsist. If I seem to be one, to you, you might want to take another look at what makes you want to define other people. Or imagine you are able to.
A good idea, really, to know yourself before defining what others are.

It's people that behave like you that make me really, really, sick of the whole concept of intellect.
If that's the best use you can make of it, well, there's nothing much you're good for.

I'll tell you how unbelievably dumb intellectuals are:
They are unable to resist taking pot shots at forum admins. How dumb is that?
So clever.

I'll share this with you: I fucking hate being an admin on such a turdhole as this forum.
And I fucking hate jumped-up douchebags like you, and a whole shitload of others.

Transcendence and growth? What a riot. Like you would know about that.
Take a fuckin' hike.

Battle, for me, is what I engage in, if I must, for my survival. Not to win.
In fact, although I have never lost a fight, it could as well be said I have never won.
I fight the adversary to a standstill, then exit.
I speak, of course, of physical battle.
But it applies to any form of battle.
