    The Metta8 unit is only programmed to search out leftist, "progressive" anti-religion websites and copy and paste headlines and links. It does not have sufficient programming to consider:

    a) if the RJ membership (or anyone) even cares about the topic it is posting

    b) if the topic it is posting is even true

    The Metta8 unit's programming is specifically and narrowly defined so that it may fulfill its mission of finding radical leftist, anti-religion topics posted on the web and copying and pasting as many headlines and links of these as possible here on RJ.


    Many of us find Metta8's post interesting and informative. Your view of them reminds me of an incident that happened way back in about 1975.

    In Minneapolis, there was a de facto nude beach along an isolated area of the Mississippi River. A small boat with several passengers, mostly women, ran along the shore line. We could hear the passengers saying saying how horrible and disgraceful the nudity was. The boat passed the beach several times as the comments continued. What puzzled us was why, if the nudity was so offensive, the boat made additional trips along the beach.

    Rather than complaining about Mett8's posts, a more reasonable response for those who don't like them would be simply not to read them. But then again, I don't know the circumstances; it may be that those who don't like the posts are being forced to read them by means to which I am not privy.

    Oh look at the robot calling someone else a robot. You're the most myopic poster on RealJock, hands down.

    The following is from the comments to her coming out:

    "Hoping this helps keep this topic in the light. She went through way, way too much. To those who call themselves Christian: There are many variations on BIblical interpretations based on the context of a few passages from a different era. In the light of what God may be calling all humanity to, can we move past this and celebrate her and all people? and,... ask her (and so many others) to forgive us for the immeasurable weights added to her?"

    I think she's finding quite a bit of acceptance within the Christian community.

    "Oh I'm an oppressed neo-liberal, help help I'm being oppressed". Bugger off.

    Also, if your opinion of radical-leftism is metta8, then I simple despair. Until metta8 posts blogs concerning how we should all live in an Anarcho-Syndicalist commune, that property is theft, that prisons should be abolished, that capitalism should be overthrown and replaced with a system where the workers gain control over production, and where parliamentary/representative democracy is replaced with direct democracy, then yes, I will label him as a radical, but until that day, not so much. Your understanding of radical left-wing politics is vomit-inducingly misinformed icon_rolleyes.gif

    Thank you for expressing an opinion in your own words - something Metta never does.


    What's wrong with posting someone else's own words? (i.e. a journalists own account of a story)?

    I've been through this here many times before, but I guess you missed it. No problem.

    A discussion forum is supposed to be about discussing things. It is not a platform for any one person to flood with copy and paste headlines and links that reflect your own world view and politics and NOT participate in the discussion.

    "Well why don't you do the same thing as Metta8 does, nobody is stopping you southbeach?"

    I did once. I matched Metta8's output for a day, posting not right-wing stuff, but centrist stuff. And my account got bounced for "flooding the forum with copy and paste topics."

    That was under the old site owners. I'm not about to test the new site owners to see if they have the same double standard.

    I understand this site is a huge part of Metta8's life. He begins posting many days before 7am and it goes on throughout the day many times and late into the night.

    I also understand that Metta8 is too shy to share his own opinions. He's stated that here in the past. But communicating the way he does - by creating topic after topic that are pro-left, anti-right, anti-religion, the-world-hates-gays - and flooding the forums as he does is tantamount to somebody throwing a stinkbomb into a room and then running outside to watch the ensuing reaction from those within.

    It's weird. It's rude. It's anti-social.


    A discussion is triggered by an idea. That idea might be a newspaper article so I see no problem with this. As long as it triggers a discussion then that's fine. What would be rude would be someone attempting to block a discussion via censorship, I believe metta8 is doing quite the opposite. It seems (emphasis on seems, this is mere speculation) that you are more concerned with his opinions than his methods of communication. You state that you get the fact that he is too shy to communicate and then proceed to state your contention with the bias of the articles he shares: "pro-left, anti-right, anti-religion, the-world-hates-gays". Well this is how the media works. I could easily find an article that supposed the ideological assumption that "the world hates Christians" for example, that'd be easy. (On a sidenote, the majority of it is more cultural Marxist than economically Marxist anyway, so using the 'left/right' dichotomy doesn't work - but that's because the left-right spectrum is a false one to begin with....another argument for another time).

    If I'm wrong and you're genuinely annoyed by his method of communication, I still don't quite see what the problem is. I don't think it's rude (he's not telling people to "fuck off" from out of the blue or insulting people). Perhaps because I find people who go out and use phrases like "morally wrong" and "rude" use them over the most trivial things. Weird? Well, that depends on one's views on what's normal - it's certainly distinctive. I rather like the fact that metta8 offers no opinion, quite simply: here's an article, interpret it how you wish, please discuss. And anti-social? Well, I don't think that's the case - if he was, would he be on an internet messageboard?

    I don't really see what the problem is. I'm not asking you to repudiate your comments, I just think viewing him as some message-board villain is rather odd.

    I haven't heard of this person, but in the U.S. there have been a couple of well known Christian artists (well-known in the Christian community, that is) that have come out as gay. First it was Ray Boltz in 2008 and then Jennifer Knapp in 2010.

    It's like a Chevy fan posting anti-Ford crap in a Ford site. Maybe you need to find a Gay conservative site that reflects your views? Can't find one, start your own!

    Take a hint from the Gay Conservative site below: be a good guest here. You are not.

    http://www.gaypatriot.net/2013/04/26/the-internet-home-for-the-american-gay-conservative/

    "My leftie friends might very nicely tell me to “feel at home”, but if I can’t – if I have a problem with what’s going on – then it’s up to me to leave. Then maybe discuss the problem together over a coffee at Starbucks’. Not to engage them in a consistency battle from within the walls of their own home. Only A-holes do that......By analogy: if this blog is a home for gay conservatives, then non-conservatives should not invoke the consistency game from within the blog. They should do it on the outside: on their blog, in private e-mail, etc. At least if the analogy holds."

    I don't care who's conservative or liberal... so is Metta8 a human or robot anyway?
