Gone but not forgotten

It being the day after the day after the Jive Turkey took a belated Thanksgiving dive, I suppose it was predictable that they would start censoring anything that anybody had ARd in the dying moments. Since no-one is likely to want to retrieve anything much from the archives of the twelve month life of GD it seems a rather pointless PR exercise, although maybe they are allowing the Lithium AIbots to prowl the forum before they freeze it. The same sort of censorship would seem to emanate from idiot part-time homeworkers who combine their forum moderation duties with illegal child-sitting as from an electronic cut and delete mech.

Here is the joke post that they decided to delete:

Pepski is strolling down the street in Los Angeles and kicks a bottle laying in the street. Suddenly out of the bottle comes a Genie. Pepski is stunned and the Genie says, "Hello master, I will grant you one wish, anything you want."
Pepski says, "I wish to drink vodka whenever I want, so make me urinate vodka."

The Genie grants him his wish. When Pepski gets home he gets a glass out of the cupboard and urinates in it. He looks in the glass and it's clear. Looks like vodka. Then he smells the liquid. Smells like vodka. So he takes a taste and it is the best vodka he has ever tasted.

Pepski yells to his domesticated servant, "Susabic, Susabic, come quickly!" She comes running down the hall and Pepski takes another glass out of the cupboard and urinates into it. He tells her to drink, it is vodka. Susabic is reluctant but goes ahead and takes a sip. It is the best vodka she has ever tasted. The two drink and party all night.

The next night Pepski comes home from work and tells Susabic to get two glasses out of the cupboard. He proceeds to urinate in the two glasses. The result is the same, the vodka is excellent and the couple drink until the sun comes up.

Finally Friday night comes and Pepski comes home and shouts, "Susabic grab one glass from the cupboard and we will drink vodka." Susabic gets a glass from the cupboard and sets it on the table.

Pepski begins to urinate in the glass and when he fills it Susabic asks him, "But Pepski, why do we need only one glass?" Pepski raises the glass and says, "Because tonight, my dear, you drink from the bottle."

Pep (I know it's unbelievable: no-one walks in LA, but this is a joke, right)

PS Previously life had been like this:

Pepski told Susabic to go shopping: "Buy one bottle of vodka, and if they have eggs, get  a dozen."
A short time later Susabic returns with just a case of vodka.
Pepski asks her: "Why the hell did you buy twelve bottles of vodka?"
She replied: "They had eggs."

That English language is really a bitch isn't it!


  1. I fear for what is coming.

    The whole Lithium platform is in itself a self-fulfilling prophecy. An exteriorization. A metaphor or allegory if you will of what the expectation of LL wants to project as their public image, closeting the reality of the program and their dirty virtual world.

    A drug addled group of zombie posters with perma-grins afixed all extolling the virtues of LL, the community and the myth of positivity and bigoted optimism/ists.

    I get the impression from my dabbling in Lithium that it was created to promote this cultural mythology wherein people with valid and healthy cynicism, an ability or talent for objective critique and analysis, that necessitates a "negative" conclusion, or just more generally by virtue of the their nature or nurture have personalities that are pessimistic rather than optimistic are censured and looked upon unfavourably, their ideas routinely dismissed as being "non-supportive", "not constructive", "mean", "nasty" etc etc, are going to be weeded out as pariahs.

    To attempt to sanitize the fora by admonishing or treating them as pariahs by restricting one's freedom to say what they wish will be the ruination of the forum.

    There are no negative or positive ideas, emotions or forms of expression. Any attempt to label them as such is pejorative and are value based judgments revealing more about the person making them, than the person expressing them.

    Those individuals are engaging in prejudiced, bigoted and discriminatory behaviour.

    Pessimists, cynics, negativists of the world!

  2. In addition, the reward system being put in place to grant abilities to those who "demonstrate the appropriate behaviour" smacks of social control and offends me personally.

    Puts me in mind of when I was in grade 5, as an exceptionally intelligent student in a time when moving children ahead to a higher grade level more beneficial to them or developing special programs of study were frowned upon by the pedagogy, I naturally enough spent my time being somewhat disruptive.

    After receiving an assignment that I had deigned to complete and did well on the teacher remarked "It's good to see you get back into the boat." whereupon, a shudder and cold chill went through me and I muttered, "I would rather be swimming."

  3. They are cleaning up manually I think, as you can see on the dashboard, some posts re-appear as 'created', but mainly happy topics!
