Where's Rufus?

Post  Darth Cheney on Tue Feb 12, 2013 6:21 am

For those that haven't been permanently banned from the site we shall not mention, does Rufus still post there?

Ruffy couldn't even get the libs on his side over there. No one ever defended his opinion. I really think he had mental issues. I don't say that to be mean spirited either.

I disagree and have argued my point many times to other regular posters. Rufus had some amazing vast experiences and it wasn't BS for the most part. He was terrible at paying back loans and had a worthless degree but I will maintain he is extremely intelligent but sometimes like to argue just to argue. I was going to have coffee with him once but I backed down thinking it could only come back to bite me professionally. Should he ever try to register here my vote would be to allow him to do so. I am not sure why the libs liked to attack him because deep down he is a Marxist but I guess if you are not one of the KELO kids...you will never get invited into the cool club. Cool

He was given the virtual boot like you (and I) were. Meaning, he couldn't post in the "Octagon" (stupid name, BTW).

I invited him to this new site, but he said he wasn't interested.

Darth, I've always felt the same way about Rufus. I thought he added to the discussion a lot of experience and knowledge. I seldom agreed with him, but at least he contributed more than just name-calling (unlike some of the Kelo crew).

When I invited him shortly after his virtual banning, his response about that site was not unlike yours (minus the spelling errors):

"It's still run by a little clique of people who were banned from the old
KELO site for tjeir over-the-top vulgarity when discussion serious
issues."

Thanks for asking him and maybe some day he will sign up.

He did like to start arguments. I thought he was pretty well educated but not very wise. I could never understand where he was coming from. He once argued that our power grid was carrying DC current not AC. That is a bit crazy. Mental issues might be a bit strong.

I had no idea he got banned. I'm starting to like the guy now. Embarassed

We all like to start arguments. That's why we go to discussion sites. Very Happy

Post  Skeptical on Wed Feb 13, 2013 6:34 pm

Time has gone so fast, so bear with me.

I first joined the old (and now non existent) Argus Forum before the Gore/Bush election. Can't say for sure whether Rufus was a member then at that time or not but over the intervening years I have read a great many of his posts.

If the post by Rufus is coherent, more than 3 or 4 lines in length and no misspelled words, chances are it was a copy and paste.(even though no credit to actual author given)

If the post is contains ramblings or misspelled words then chances are it is original by him.

Therefore on a scale of;

Strongly disagree
Disagree
Neither agree nor disagree
Agree
Strongly agree

On any given day and depending on the post I can honestly say this about Darth's evaluation of Rufus,

"I disagree and have argued my point many times to other regular posters. Rufus had some amazing vast experiences and it wasn't BS for the most part"


It depends on the content of the post and the degree of grammatical/spelling areas as to whether I can substantiate

I also agree with Freedom FE there are other issues at play in the comments/responses by Rufus.

His last post looks to be an insult directed at SuperDave.

Just saying it, but do those who originally populated this site really want ALL the posters from the "site that shall not be named here" to move to this site? And if they did, why would there be any expectations that this site would not assume the same atmosphere of the other site?

Don't want the nanny nanny do dos or ego queens. If I had to listen to Bart tell how benevolent and wonderful she is one more time I am going to blow up. I always kinda liked Ruffy even though we were diametrically opposed.

I see your point, but there would be one big difference, Here there are no biased mods. Can you imagine liberals being offended and not being able to REPORT every post that butt hurts them. They won't last long here. Crying or Very sad
Not even a rep system to cry on. It would be hell on earth for a lib. And at that point they would leave and say there is nothing to see here. Yet continuing to return. ALL WELCOME. Smile

I think you're correct about them continuing to return. As of this post, there are 106 views of this little thread.

As far as no rep system and no report button.....maybe that's what's keeping libs from signing up?

I mean, they obviously need those kinds of protection bestowed upon them at GPLV. This is not unlike relying on the government for their needs in the real world. They can't defend their own words with facts. Instead, they run to the report button or give out multiple negative reputation points in retaliation when facts are thrown in their faces. Then, if you're not in their little clique, they do it just spite you.

I just don't get it--especially from one "Christian" over there. I thought the Bible says "vengeance is mine, sayith the Lord".

I can't even count the number of negative rep points I got from that guy.

I am not sure I will ever understand the liberal mindset--especially a "Christian" one. The words Liberal and Christian don't really go well together. Talk about an oxymoron.

Liberalism is a terrible mental disease which there is no known cure...pity them. The refuse to acknowledge facts or history but rather what they "feel" with no regard to assured unintended consequences. Their failures are always a result in "we didn't try hard enough" or "if only we would have invested more federal dollars" etc. The center of their world is big government who provides all things that are "truly" needed. They are a pitiful ideology that has always proven itself to be flawed and without merit yet they stick to their beliefs. It really should be a classified mental disease and perhaps then we can start to address the systemic problems inherit.

As a Christian currently engaged in the Unitarian Universalist denomination, I do not find a progressive approach to be contrary to practice of my Christian faith.

Not trying to start anything here, but over on that other site, it became pretty obvious that the mods did not follow their own posted rules. When that happened, and it happened quite often by one in particular, it really put a damper on free discussion.

The only question I have for this board, is what happens if a poster begins to troll another poster? No question it was done to me on the other site.

Pretty sure I know which one you are talking about. And you're correct. It did put a damper on free discussion. Hasn't been an issue here so far.

Not sure how well I can judge the other site. I don't have access to a computer at work (that I can play around online that is) so by the time I check at home or on my phone over lunch break, many of the posts were already modded and I didn't really know what was said. I've been on it since it started, but I missed all the fun most of the time. I guess I'm more along the lines of, if you don't like what they say, discuss it on the board or put the person on ignore.

I like that. If you don't like something someone says, just leave it be. As opposed to their policy (paraphrased based on personal experience):

If you are liberal and you don't like what a conservative says, press the REPORT button. A moderator will be there shortly to moderate to the best of his biased ability

In addition to our fabulous moderators, you can secretly degrade the person you don't agree with by pressing the little "heart" icon. This will allow you place a negative reputation point (or points, depending how much of a butt-kisser you are) on the people you don't like. You can even attack that poster in a nasty way in the comment of this reputation point(s) that you just gave out. This is the way to personally attack someone without getting a warning and/or muting.
