It's been a long time since there's been any drama on SoH. Miss it?
@EarlyBird Do you have @susanr on ignore? This came up in a different poll and I wondered.
Alice, didn't you hear? They had a ginormous fight in one of those dog vs cat polls. They haven't spoken to each other since, and it has split the SOH community into two factions. 🐶 vs 🐱
Sounds about right!
Oh it was bad, Alice. Really bad. They were just barking insults at each other. There was even catcalling.
LOL Alynn. Well done.
Stirring the pot I see
It's kinda fun to remember, but a lot of those ordeals really upset people so in that respect I don't miss it. People invest a lot in a semi-anonymous app...any drama isn't so anonymous because of it.
I don't miss the drama at all. What I do miss are the many people who no longer use the app that I found to be fun to talk to.
And, I upvoted. :)
Yes! I rarely see you on here.
Intellectual banter on issues I enjoy but when people speak from their ignorance it's no longer a fair fight. It bores me whether it's an act or they truly see the world that way.
I understand completely. I don't engage with those kind anymore.
Chimama was last week telling sailingaround to go kill himself.
Nice woof pic!
Thanks Dio. It's cruz's dog :)
Should I start some trouble? 😉
What type of drama? Did I miss something?
You missed a lot if you don't know what I'm talking about. I don't want to rehash old stories though.
Then why make this poll?
Because most of the people were here to see the drama in the past.
For instance, were you around when ScottyDoesNo got banned?
It caused A LOT of drama.
Discrimination. And yes I was here.
I think you can still find plenty of the old-style buttheadity going on in some of the main political polls.
Mike! I've thought about you from time to time with yer boy Bernie doing so well. No trolling, I honestly think he's getting shafted by a rigged system. What are your thoughts on this whole ordeal?
I agree the system feels rigged, but he doesn't have the majority of the votes either, and that's just the way it is and on him and his campaign. I'll have a fit about the super delegate nonsense only if it actually makes a difference. When Clinton came out criticizing him for basically not being a real Democrat, a DINO I guess, I wrote her off completely. Not surprisingly, the GOPer side looks as bad or worse, with the nonsense in NY and what probably ought to be criminal election rigging in CO. Seriously, I wish both Sanders and Trump had run as independents and been clear alternatives to the legacy parties' BS.
Amen brother, Colorado was indeed criminal. Not to mention all the dirty tricks Cruz has been using via arcane primary rules to literally steal votes that Trump legally won. Ideally I would love to see a Trump/Sanders showdown, and if they take this away from Trump at convention I will vote for his third party run all day long and happily give Hillary the win.
Yes I think I do. It's been a bit boring.
This new liberal safe space is enlightening now that certain ideas are being suppressed.
That's it boys! Keep it going!
How do I respond to a guy whose liberal safe space includes 95% of humanity killed?
You know, if vegan did have his way by imposing a 10,000 person human population cap, we'd pretty much have to exterminate the non-cisgendered population because they'd be dead weight in the effort to keep the genetic diversity of the reproductive pool as broad as possible.
Lol. "No idea what you're even talking about. Loosen that tinfoil hat a bit more."
That's what I am talking about. I can't tell if you are completely that ignorant or you just think people are going to believe your false statements.
The only thing false about my statement was the 95% when you actually want the whole human population to be extinct, which is 100% for you common core students.
I don't really engage in a lot of debates with people, although there is one particular user who really boils my blood. I just choose not to engage with this individual.
I know who it is! You gave clues to the name a long time ago and I never forgot.
Not at all I just refrain from posting something. Somebody said a pastor was not a Christian because he was gay. I almost asked this person so are you saying I'm not a Christian because I support gay rights. I refrained
That was the right decision.
I'll admit to having been mildly entertained by some of the old drama. What I don't care for is day-to-day bitterness, incessant name-calling.
Omg.. My poll has suddenly been down voted by about 10 votes!
Me thinks a friend of the person I have had drama with was informed of this poll.
Of course, and it probably happened right after a couple of users posted.
You know how the old Instagram drill works.
I wonder if they have codes that the peasants must follow.
I chuckle at down voting as punishment. I say if you can get 144 comments with 197 votes, it's a damn good poll. Way to go EB!
Thank you Tops! And thank you Bob!
You didn't thank me, so I'm downvoting this poll and all of your other polls.
Go ahead, MD. It's what all you sensitive conservatives do. 😜
Sorry, I can't read your comment through my tears. I'm sure it was an apology.
My poll about milkshakes was hit by downvotes pretty hard yesterday. You never know what will piss people off.
Probably because you mentioned chocolate shakes and neglected to mention the vanillas.
Silly boy, you forgot to put whip cream on top and add chocolate syrup to the chocolate ice cream. Really can anything have too much chocolate?
You voted for Obama. Twice.
If you don't stop saying that, I'm going to vote for Hillary. :)
Go ahead if you want your drama. Aka, political, and all intelligent users of SOH ignoring you!
I always miss the drama.
Not at all. I nearly left the app over the rudeness and attacks. I miss some users that it basically chased away. It certainly ruins the app to a degree.
Do you recall the users who left?
Yes, but I'm not going to list them. I'd rather not get attacked or have some of them slandered by people in this poll.
You don't have to be in it Jack.
You can watch from afar.
You're right, but I would hate to see this app turn into the Jerry Springer Show. I would rather it be a place where people can learn to debate with one another without resorting to Ad Hominem attacks.
Agree but it's the passionate debates I miss. Everything seems so vanilla these days.
Is drama underrated?
🤔 I think when it's going on, people don't like it and when there isn't any, people miss it.
I've had my own drama. I'm amazed that people can get so fires up so quickly and are so unwilling to have an actual conversation.
I know, right?! Apparently I'm not allowed to think that the California government isn't doing a good job. I wouldn't mind having a discussion about it but this guy was quite angry.
That's crazy for anyone to think California's government is doing a good job.
Apparently some people think it's great, really great, amazing, the bestest in the whole world!
Which is why so many of them are moving out of the state.
The calm before the storm(?)...
Let's start some!
Hitler did nothing wrong. There, I said it
Happy birthday, Hitler
Oh I was just talking about my favorite Mountain Dew flavor
My favorite too. Hehehe
Is it springtime yet?
I do not know. we don't have spring here.. are you referring to the movie with the play in it?
It hasn't been long at all lol
But the chim drama only lasted a day, right? In the old days, it went on for months at a time.
A couple days, because the mods won't listen.
It's on going. I was just excited that Catscratch responded to me. 😂
Luft's poll is where a lot of the aftermath occurred.
Wow, My brain isn't working today. Did you that we need more drama? I'll fix that with a Verizon call to the bullpen.
Catscratch will have him banned (again) within hours.
☎️ You rang good sir? ☎️
How shall thou do thouest bidding??
Hi Scotty! Things haven't been the same since you left. Chim was a mini you but he was recently banned.
No one can be a Scotty! Like Trump, I'm one of a kind.
So it's been snoozeville around here, huh? Got any ideas how we can change that?
You could create a poll. Answer SOH's main polls. Answer my marvelous polls.
Unless the new mods get more lenient, it's impossible. They delete threads, close polls and ban people fairly often.
How do I get my Power User status reinstated now that it's no longer an option? Help me with that and I'll consider it. :-)
Now that Tony's gone, I don't have much pull with SoH.
Gone? Like 100% not here??
He was the one who banned Chimmy
Everything changed when Tony got the partner from New York. We play by different rules now.
Does the partner from New York have an account?
WTF? Dude this sucks, what are the rules now? Would I last a week under the new regime?
Probably. The mods just don't like Chim. maybe they'll remember you..you are the reason they set the rules in the first place, lmao. But maybe you could..
Yes the partner has an account and used to be active but I can't recall his name. @MrMilkDud does I'm sure.
Scott should post a poll challenging the holocaust and whether Jews were really killed in the numbers claimed. That'll get a few people going. You could also post some links to sources which say Michelle is actually a man. LOL.
True. We have someone who has made a couple polls about it.. but nobody took it seriously
I remembered Sagar
Read it fast though because it's just a matter of time before that comment disappears.
He stuck a big fucking helmet on the app when he took over, and it's never recovered. The "safe space" users have admin's ear and the user admin's have decided to use their positions to disappear any comments they don't like, so any record of good debates disappear within a day or so. Add to that the facts that many of us can only see 10% of comments in any given poll, and that most new users are just high school google monkeys who are nowhere near the intellectual caliber of the original users, and it's just not worth the effort of getting into a big debate with anyone.
lol Okie ah yes, classic polls. Fond memories.
Amen dud, I remember towards the end of my tenure comments would be removed within literal minutes. Even innocuous ones. It was like the admins were stalking me.
With all the people who have you on ignore this place must look like a ghost town to you, Scotty.
And that new ignore feature was literally the single dumbest thing Tony did before leaving. A poll says "50 comments" and I go in and see two. TWO!!
The user moderators were stalking you, still are. They were pretty proud of reporting every single one of your comments. If enough of them report something, it automatically disappears.
Their plan worked, though, because we have more cute kitten videos and "what did you do this weekend" polls than ever before.
The kindness cabal won, and they've taken what was a good debating app and turned it into a "safe space."
I'm slowly coming to realize what a "Scotty ghost town" looks like. People put me on ignore for such silly things.
I suppose that if they're going to put you on ignore for violating their "safe space" you would either want to make a new account or stick with ghost town
Well stop saying things that people shouldn't be allowed to say anyway, and people will stop putting you on ignore, political. 🙄
I got put on ignore for disagreeing with Citethrsource, Stilletto, and a couple other mindless drones that I don't remember
What a sad place this once-great app has become. Another victory for the left and the pussification of this once-great country.
RIP USA 1776-2009
We'll keep trying. Perhaps enough people will want to speak their minds one day
Welcome to the club, xem.
Last year a lot of liberals decided to ignore every user who didn't support gay marriage or refer to transsexuals as their declared gender. A lot of them gave it up after they realized how childish they were, but cite is one of the few who still has everyone on ignore.
Every time a liberal gets triggered a new safe space is born
Liberals are a scourge on civilized society. I hope Trump deports them after he builds the wall financed by Mexico.
That's what will make the wall a great wall
Cite put me on ignore because I rightfully characterized abortion as murder.
Cite a source for that or it didn't happen, political.
He put me on ignore then after a while unignored me.. shortly after he got triggered again, but I don't think either was about religion... And I'm pretty sure religion is the thing that triggers him most.
I think it was when I was talking to Stilett
o and he got mad and blocked me, then Cite was like 'you're a big meanie!' And ignored me a second time
I love it when he tries to paint himself as a pragmatic person because he has someone how to shoot a gun.
He's the kinda guy to hold up a participation trophy and say "I did it! I won!"
I'm hoping that you will get your drama, EB! I tagged Scotty into the SOH main poll!
o boi this'll be fun
This has been a marvelous thread to read. We miss you Scotty.
It is a good thread, I am happy
I miss you all too! But Tony done ran this app right into the ground, it's a shame.
Stop whining and get out there, Scotty.
Time to rush outta the starting line and hit the track. Make it a good run
I think Scotty's lost his edge and that's why he's not around anymore. He just lurks main polls and weeps quietly into a bowl of mac'n'cheese
I think Scotty doesn't comment anymore because his lady parts get a viral flare up when he's stressed out.
He is quite mild in the Trump poll.
Poor guy. Looks like tony and sagar broke him.
He's just charging up his power level
Pretty much what happened to me. He's just another whiner. Someone to mess with. People like that are good for laughing at, if nothing else.
Wrong thread. I meant to post in the other in reference to Stilleto
Wow. He's slightly worse than I thought.
Wrong thread again?
Okay boys, you want some drama? Hope my new poll pleases!
So is Tony gone forever?
No. He was here to ban Chimmy.
No, but he's no longer in charge of the app. Sagar is listed as the CEO.
Next time there is a problem, I am going to tag sagar to see what happens.
I don't think he's involved at that level.
Brilliantly done, Scotty
Well if this isn't a thread of my favorite users all in one 😀
#sagar what's the answer?
He did what turned into a sort of AMA poll a while back:
Show of Hands: Hey all - new blog post and some new user guidelines are up. Questions? I'll try to keep up with the bit.ly/1Cf2gFz
I did ban Scotty for a few weeks. I stand by that one. I talked to him about it personally before the ban was lifted and I still think there's a pretty bright line between trolling and bullying which is why the guidelines went up. But I was no longer involved with SOH soon after that (it's been well over a year). Never deleted any comments... I believe that started after I left. Still an avid user but I have noticed the change in culture as well.
So is tony back in charge?
Sagar! Sup my homie?? Wanna thank you again for that, you were a great admin and I'm sorry to hear you've left. Your tag still lists you as "SoH Staff". That cool with the new guys?
What happened to Jayisn? Is he still around?
Yeah who's in charge?
Whoops... Took that staff tag off my profile. I mostly just answer and comment lurk these days. My girlfriend loves answering questions with me and then arguing about who's right. ;)
I think Tony is probably still busy living it up with Jeff Bezos at Amazon. Don't know who has taken over but I met Jaysin when I was three and it did seem like he was running with the day to day after I was gone.
I miss you, Scotty. You were an intense pain in my ass for a few weeks but I can't say it wasn't entertaining!
I met Jaysin when I was there* not three.
What's Catscratch's role besides "enoughing" people?
Little ol' me, a pain in anyone's ass? C'mon now, I'm a harmless lovable little fuzz ball! So I *know* you're a Trump guy and that what you and your girlfriend argue about, right??
Poli, did you used to do something for the app?
Yeah! I have always provided entertainment.
Lol what were you hired to do?
I wasn't hired. I consider my service to be volunteer work. Out of the kindness of my heart, I set liberals straight.
Hey, has sailingaround been banned after all?
I don't know, but hopefully yes
I think we owe #catscratch the credit for banning him.
Woo, thanks catscratch?
He was banned for his profile pic
Ah.. what was it?
It mentioned chimama. Profile pics shouldn't have names of other users in them banned or not
I see. I know the one
Where have you been EB? 😂
The person I've had most of my drama with has me on ignore and I have her on ignore. It's best this way because every comment of hers boils my blood. 😡
Who is it?
You should know, coffee.
EB has a true idiot on ignore. Frankly, I almost put the same person on ignore.
I'm going to guess stilettomiss or bethany
Coffee, think harder. She "Bakes" a lot.
Ohh that was my 3rd choice
I've had my fair share with stiletto too. We just avoid each other.
She also gets "baked" a lot.
Stilleto blocked me a long time ago lmao
That's not surprising that he did that.
Yes, he's too sensitive. lol
Lol. That stiletto guy would viciously attack people that disagreed with him and then play the victim if they said anything back. Such a drama queen.
Pretty much what happened to me. He's just another whiner. Someone to mess with. People like him are only good for laughing at, if nothing else
He threatening to sue soh all the time is when this app started going down hill. Apparently freedom of speech is a liability.
That's hilarious. What did he say he was going to sue for+
"Hate speech" otherwise anything that offends his sensibilities.
That's SJWs for ya...
Is stiletto the one that demanded tony release personal data about users so he could sue them?
Wow. He's even worse than I thought.
The funny and instigators left or are banned. Getting a lot of dumb questions lately.
Drama always makes things fun.
Should I stir things up around here?
I think there is still plenty of drama but I could be wrong. I can remember times when there was more and I don't miss it because it cost us some great users.
Did we lose users because they were part of the drama?
I think we lost a few because they got so fed up with being attacked. That's my recollection, but my memory isn't perfect. 😕
I'm all for a little healthy debating but I'm sick of the transphobes and meninists.
But I'm still here, I'm not THAT scared of them.
Corny, I'd settle for even some discussion. I don't necessarily debate but I do like great conversations, where ideas are exchanged. They seem to be harder and harder to find but maybe I'm just not looking hard enough.
No, you're right.
I actually had a genuine conversation with chimama shortly before he was banned (rare occurrence, I know) and I stopped hating him. But if he told someone to go kill themselves then I guess I can see why they weren't comfortable having him on here.
Although I don't care for drama irl, I do miss the passion I used to see on this app.
I do think that's missing. It is almost impossible to get a meaningful discussion going anymore. I wish that wasn't the case.
Old friends refuse to talk, those who do skirt around this history, enemies all ignored, trolls all banned - this app is growing up and matured.
MJ, I don't want my old friends on this app ignoring me and skirting issues. That's no fun at all. If that's mature, I don't care for it at all.
Well Chim was recent
I was going to say the same thing.
What did I miss?!?
Chim got permanently banned for telling another user via private message to go kill themselves. There were other warnings in the past as well apparently
PC police will ruin it. Some can't find their safe zones.
Sailing deserved it more though
Sailing did say that Christians should be caged and killed.. that they're schizophrenic. So you can see why he was mad.
Ugh.. I got a kick out of chim. This bums me out.
Same.. but we're trying to see if the mods will listen to reason.
I'm not for banning but how do you ban someone for an insult "kills yourself", but not ban someone for generally advocating for the slavery of hundreds of millions of people like sailing did?
I don't see the logic in that
Exactly. It's weird.
The chim chim vs Nemacyst fights were usually pretty entertaining.
Once I mentioned I sleep with my windows open at night in a main poll and a user said he wished he knew where I lived because he would climb in my window and stab me 16 times. Not a thing was said about it.
I didn't reply or complain but that was worse IMO than telling someone to kill themselves.
Thanks for the update. I noticed that chimama had disappeared. I was wondering why. I was even on that thread.
I agree. It seems they were just out to get Chim
EB. The intruder wouldn't have known that you sleep under the bed with a year's supply of tuna and crackers. You'd have been safe.
Some do crazy stuff trying to impress. What they try to impress with I have no idea. But if everybody just ask redundant silly question the controversial people would up and leave. Who is better Ac/dc vs DC/AC or another winner is Trump v. Hillary! Ugh!
I'm glad Justbob is back.
Haha chimama what an idiot. I'm glad he's gone
I've seen a lot worse on here than "kill yourself" and others have said it too. But that's garbage.
