      Just spent only a couple of visits here and and picked up a severe case of Biden Bots.

      Is there a way to block them so I can have a bit of peace on JP?

      If I wanted to deal with them I’d be on FB. :/

      how one of them got over 700 posts here is, super fucking sad.

      We can’t block them, but you can report them if you think they violated site rules. Or you can engage with them and tell them what you think of their positions, and they won’t be able to call on anyone to come cancel you.

      We’ve got a fairly wide range of opinion here–there at least used to be a conservative or two, and we have everything from loyal Democrats to a couple of Communists and anarchists. I don’t agree with those Democrats, and sometimes get into heated exchanges with them myself. Anyway, the site has no blocking feature for members, or mods for that matter.

      And if we start blocking and banning, we become SV.  Blocking and banning is an egotistical team sport over there.

      The thing about Biden-bots – I find them entertaining as fuck.  There is something about authoritarian types’ pissy whinging and/or officiousness that just CMSU.  I don’t take them any more seriously than a Vichy Dem’s promise.  Also entertaining is watching those who don’t understand that they are not here to tell others how to think, but to express their own thinking.  IMO no one is here in order to be told what to think, but for some weird reason, some get really frustrated when others do not agree with them.  When they say “people just won’t understand me” what they really mean is “people won’t change their way of thinking to my way of thinking and agree with me”.

      edited to add – what is really funny is that their guy won!  but now not praising Their Guy is, I guess, some sort of thought crime?  Domestic terrorism?  Bizarre.  I am reminded of that old cartoon wherein a disheveled looking guy is crouched over his keyboard and saying “I would go to bed, but somebody on the internet is Wrong”.  Also I am reminded of sock-puppets.

      Everything I post is just my opinion, and, honestly, I would love to be wrong.

      Just trying to get away from that “New Democrat” smell, and it’s everywhere. 🙁

      Buddhism helps but these guys destroy all that is peaceful when they open their face holes and make excuses for the excuses. Jeeeezuz. :/

      My PTSD and ADHD make me nuts listening to confident, ignorant, bootlickers so I’ve used block as a crutch because engaging is sooo useless and tiring

      Guess I’ll just have to engage because when I can because stupid is infectious and all of Blue MAGA terminal. 🙁

      I can’t stand to see it fester at my home away from home. 🙁

      Miss you guys, sorry ya’ll can’t get away from it either.

        I’m trying to get back into Zen more myself. I’m mainly here while I’m at work, between calls. (I work in a call center from home, and there’s space for my trusty, and untraceable by my employers, laptop. One must exploit the perks one has.)

        It does get old seeing and hearing the same old tired, Democrat excuses yet again. It became a lot easier for me when I finally figured out the real power in the Democrat Party(yes I’m misspelling it just to piss some people off) wants to mostly lose elections because their moneylaundering operation is more profitable when they are out of power. All those scared liberals sending them money won’t keep sending them money when their Blue Boy is in office. They just go back to brunch and to sleep.

        Except for a few. They do have entertainment value to some of us, though.

      it’s why I entertain Republicans every once in a while but that book’s an easy read.
      They exhaust me because I’ve listened to stupid all my life.

      My stepfather who gave me PTSD was a PERFECT TRUMP SUPPORTER, if he were still alive.

      Confident ignorance is a trigger for me and Blue MAGA has it in spades.

      I will probably do more ignoring, … and maybe some cursing. 😉

      Great to hear from you. 🙂

        It will help soften my reputation as a potty mouth for the same fucking reasons.

        Good to see you posting, and it’s good to bring this cognitive dissonance to the surface for the Biden, et al, Bots. They have no sense of any history and need one.

        Sometimes, I fantasize sitting around a big ole campfire and taking turns reading from Howard Zinn’s People’s History of the United States…. You know, there would be a cross pollinating sector of people who would quit fighting amongst themselves, once they realize the strategy was to do that. That’s what the Democrat(ic) party has provided, and that is what needs to be addressed.

        Hell, no... I'm not giving up...

      I think this place is remarkably free of Biden supporters actually! Don’t let them bother you, they are outnumbered.

        Thank You.

        I just get fired up when I listen to obvious stupid and I have a bad heart. It’s a shitty combination cause there’s a lot of stupid going around.
        My Buddhism study helps but I can’t stand to see people making the lives of others super shitty because of their own willful ignorance that they then push on others. 🙁

        I lived a lifetime of that with a Trump Style Stepfather who gave me PTSD. That man was dumb as fuck and he thought he knew it ALL. Our house was filled with misery. I hear his words and feel his attitudes in DNC Democratic supporters when it used to be reserved for Republicans. When it I see it at my home away from home, well …. 🙁

        Time to dust off my old ass kicking boots.

          for the kind words.

          I was just coming here from leaving a few “progressive” groups overrun with DNC Useful Idiot, Biden Bots and finding them here kind a set me off. Then I looked at all the # of posts and realized it’s been here a while. 🙁

          This place was my safe space and it just riled me that it’s got pests.

          I will be spending more time here with my second fam.

          missed you guys a lot and don’t how I got lost out there when all my friends are right here. 🙂
