Now I know why Patrick keep tovarichpeter on the board!

By mostly reader follow mostly reader   2016 Dec 12, 5:08pm 10,045 views   43 comments   watch   nsfw   quote   share    


Long time reader, bothered to register to ask this one question. The pattern is fully consistent with a drive-by propaganda mouthpiece. Possibly a bot, possibly a paid schill, possibly a super bored individual.

His/her/it's stats, as of now:
16,717 posts, 489 comments. This means: started 16,717 new threads, only replied in 489. 16,717 drive-by threads, often with misleading header, vs. 489 attempts at conversation.
It's actually worse. Of those 489 comments, majority are his own follow-ups to his own thread titles. As in comment #2 in a thread. Number of legitimate responses to other forum members are either in low 3- or 2-digits. So forget about 489. tovarichpeter ratio is somewhere around 1 response for 100 drive-by copy/paste of propaganda junk. That's his/her/it's contribution to the forum thus far.

Open forum, yeah, yeah. If someone used my real estate, virtual or physical, for his/her/it's political banners, I'd be pissed.

Oh, and thanks for the site. Helped me to make right decision a decade ago, and then another right decision a bit later (although the second one went against site's theme back then, but I listened to both sides)

Edit: turned out, tovarichpeter is a real person and not a bot. Question withdrawn (and title edited, was: "Why does Patrick keep tovarichpeter on the board!?"). tovarichpeter, I promise to read you next 2 links as a penance. Please make them good, something about how USA should be more like Sweden.

His posts are far more interesting than the childish and tediously repetitive "Squawk!" post you favour.

@freespeechforever yeah, I noticed. I've been a reader for a bit over a decade, and throughout most of this time assumed that it's a low-budget techno project, with a human occasionally taking over.
@"Gary Anderson" no, you can't.

Hi @"mostly reader" the answer is because I don't censor anything except the 5 forbidden categories:

  1. personal threats or incitement to violence
  2. personally identifying information
  3. child porn
  4. spam
  5. copyright violations (upon notice)

Nice to know I can publish the schematics for nuclear weapons here.

You should add any video by Justin Beaver to the list.

His headlines often don't match the article, apparently by error. But some are seem to be intentionally misleading, like the "Israel to ban Criticism" when it was the Tories in the UK trying to draw a line between legit criticism and conflating Israel and Jews.

Which is no different that say, conflating the Vatican State with all Catholics, whether they be secular or nominal or liberal Catholics, or trads and ultra trads.

I like a lot of his articles.

principle

This is the correct usage in this case. "Pal" is like the principal in your school because he's your "pal". I didn't dignify by saying he/she but used the generic "he" to cover both sexes (there are only two), so I'm sure someone is offended.

Did a google image search for "immense hirsute lesbian" too and am very proud that the first two images are also from patrick.net!

But then the cherry on top (so to speak) is that this search also brings in the realtor logo! Woot!

Somebody has been reading this web site for 10 years, but has been too much of a pussy to say anything? Surely, you can't be serious.

I suggest you beg your wife or mother to give you your balls back, and start posting some of your own threads. In the mean time, stop complaining about people who actually contribute.

Patrick, most of those IHLs are thinner than your typical American lady. This is not what comes to my mind when I read IHL. Thankfully, we don't have a truth in advertising campaign going on here, because I'm happy leaving this particular topic to the imagination. I love the R logo nestled in there.

You must not have paid over 10% of asking price for a shack.
Then tripled the appraised value & sold to an overpaying buyer.

I like Peters Post and he respect my demented tirades never has he ever tried to shout me down or attack me because I had a different point of view than him, or didn't react the way he was expecting.
I don't get how so many people could have a beef with him. And wonder if they or most aren't the same person.

Leave Peter alone for fucksakes. (TPB Crying with mascara running down his face)

Why does Patrick keep tovarichpeter on the board?

Years ago PAtrick used to share a lot of links to variou reality based pieces as well as some opinion pieces. But that was too time consuming. Then for a while a lot of us were sharing links. Many of the articles that tovarichpeter posts are good and not all that biased. Lately, as many reality based people had a lot of trouble with the Trump candidacy he probably did seem biased. But all in all over time, most has been neutral, unless you consider not being hard core alt right or right wing media wing nut material as overly biased.

The opportunity to use "ignore" is there for sure, but I meant the irony: the retard runs his mouth that I should start posting my own threads (as some indication of courage). In my own thread.

Yes, we realize you summoned the courage to 'speak' after 10 years of 'listening', and that should be encouraged. But your only post so far has been to complain about someone who actually contributes on a regular basis. So, pull your panties out of your crack, and post some content if you want a voice.

Long ago, when Patrick was trying to get more content for this site, he posted a link sharing tool, which made starting posts very easy while you are reading the news. I'm guessing Peter just hits the share button when he sees an article he likes. I happen to like Peter's posts. I usually encounter those articles without his links, but sometimes not.

I would agree with TPB, though i suspect Tovarichpeter does not read all the comments posted on his threads.

"we realize..." - you use plural to speak on behalf of (and get implied support of) the community, or because there are 3 of you - "Yes", "Y", and "Not"? If former - stop looking around for support and soon you'll be able to walk on your own. If latter, have the brain of the trio explain it to the other two dumb fucks:
- he "contributes" the same way as a kid contributes to household by dragging yet another junk from the street into the house. Cute, but useless and bloats garbage output.
- this is a great board, but I must limit my online activities (and it's in your interests that I go back to doing the same)
- glad you like his posts. Gary also suggested that I could learn from them. I'm seeing a pattern here.
- link sharing tool puts things in perspective. suddenly things are making sense again.

I used the plural to imply that the point was so obvious that everybody gets it. Reading this site and never posting is like watching your buddy play a video game, but never taking a turn. Maybe you have your reasons - whatever.

Of all the posters to take issue with, tovarich is the least likely target of ill will. He curates mostly decent reading material, with from what I see an overall emphasis on healthy social and environmental values. If all of the posters could be likened to a tv channel, tovarich would be PBS.
