See once again incapable or responding without an insualt.
I see you didn't quote the part of my comment that asks when you started giving people, or me in particular, a pass. You reap what you sow.

That is untrue and you know it. During your last meltdown, I locked the discussion because your behaviour mirrored my previous experience with you, and you just don't stop.
Would you prefer to be the pot or the kettle?

You are also free of walking away. but you can't do it without the last word. You don't have the ability so you got the last word and locked the thread so you could have both.

Please show me where you sit down and shut up to bullying.
I'm not sure what this means.

As long as you keep making untrue accusations I will continue to respond.
Every word I have said is true. I've provided you examples along the way. Of course those examples never count.

A pass? I tried to make amends with you. I reached out to you privet I apologized and suggested we move forward and you came back with the same crap over and over again. That's a lot more then a pass.

And I won't show you becasue I've long since deleted those PMs but we both know that is the truth.You don't have to like me, but if you think you can repeatedly attack my intelligence and flling other insults and I'll quietly take it you have no idea who you are dealing with.

You are an internet bully. And I will not bow down to you no matter how long you want to post.

Hey Guys and Girls

It's been a little while now since Truthy moved Discourse Underground to our new home, so it's time to touch base with y'all.

What would you like to see more or less of on Discourse Underground?

Generally, I post the things I read. The publications I mostly read are The Guardian, The Conversation, The Intercept, POLITICO, The Hill and Roll Call.

Please feel free to suggest any publications that might be of interest to you.

Perhaps some of you may like to start a discussion here now and again, for which I am always grateful.

Enjoy your Friday, Peeps!
Interesting timing as I was thinking in contacting you about this just last week.
I was wondering about the theme of DU in that , is it meant to be about politics?
In which I've been trying to look for topics that try not to duplicate or compete with those over at AA. General topics or human interest stories that hopefully attract folks to participate?

I wasn't focusing much on the other channels as I was spending what little spare time I have on this channel, therefore it took me a while to notice that I have been duplicating AA's discussions quite often. DU had a lot of other moderators on Disqus and we all posted from different perspectives, so I think that the theme is kind of eclectic.

Due to my education and career choices during my working lifetime, my personal interest is international politics and how it impacts people in the places that they live. However, I don't want to drown people in the things that I like to read. I already know what interests me, so I suppose the purpose of this discussion was to find out what other people are interested in.

Yes, at times there is a lull in traffic on this channel, but that is not to say that I created this topic because I had concerns. After looking around a couple of days ago, it seemed to me that the other smaller channels are about the same. I am one mod and am not putting expectations on myself here. I had no idea that this is meant to be some kind of competition, other channels do what they want and if people want to join in here that's great, if not then that's fine too.

The claim we saw earlier that I make all the comments is not correct. Yes, I create the largest portion of topics here but there are a lot more comments than the number I have contributed. If we were to tally the mod comments from the other channels, AA aside, I am sure we would find a similar ratio. On the upside. This topic got a bit of a discussion going and attracted people who do use this channel and maybe even got some others thinking about posting topics themselves.

Thanks for your support, it means quite a lot. :D

I have deleted nothing.

Do not threaten me, and do not write things that are untrue. You never apologised, rather you wrote that your comments are quite acceptable.

I wrote this on the other discussion, and I am writing it here too. This has gone on long enough, I can't make myself any clearer for you.

Thanks for your input, tck. Greatly appreciated.

BTW, I see you are having quite a bit of trouble getting along with people on other channels. So... Let's be clear. Your issues are much larger than me being sick to death of your one talking point.
Yeah, it would seem so if you only listen to certain people...it isn't that simple really
I am not listening to anyone because nobody is telling me anything, and I really don't know who certain people are...

Sorry for the late reply, it's probably irrelevant now. Your message slipped through my net.

You're welcome. Maybe one day I'll get the nerve up to post a topic for discussion myself. I do like the list of sources you posted earlier. I really really like "food-for-thought" discussions.

Are you really that unaware of your own comments? This need you have to frame yourself as a victim while metering out abuse is quite interesting from a psychological perspective. And you call me "pathological", among other things you seem to forget you write.

Other's being allowed to post without mods throwing insults and having meltdowns.
I've discovered that Park City's PARK RECORD weekly roughly resembles the TAD page on DISQUS; everything is relevant, until it gets Too Close To Home. (or too close to a sage-ridden op-ed contributor, of whom forgot that mother told them to share.)
