Is MyDD under attack? Act TWO

According to my calculations, the last 10 or so diaries were put up in the past 15 minutes, on trivial matters as far as left wing or liberal/progressive issues are concerned, by first time diarists, new members, all of whom never even posted a comment.

The time is 9:56 am EST. December 27

Act TWO: The day is December 28 and the time is 9:43 am EST.

It looks as if MyDD is getting another round of spammed troll diaries.

thanks for the heads up

I'm sure the admins will get to these.

Spam diaries are an occasional problem on all community blogs.

Re: thanks for the heads up

First time I've experienced this phenomenon. Is this a group or is one person usually the culprit? It takes quite a bit effort to write so many diaries.

Re: Is MyDD under attack?

Check the user pages a little more closely and you'll see they have links to what appears to be an online shoe store.  

I've got to buy because nothing lures me to a shiny pair of Gucci knock-offs like a sexy Canadian tax diary!

Re: Is MyDD under attack?

Well if their shoes are that good, then I might look them up myself.

Is it an online Canadian shoe store? Well, given the effort taken I suspect that Canada got hurt as badly by these snow storms. But Christmas is over. Reminds me that 9 out of 10 businesses go under within a few years.

Perhaps it is a last gasp attempt to churn up business. But why MyDD? We're not exactly all barefooted beggars.

Re: my man

This is not the place to post sucj comments. All of the pro-peace observers of the Clinton era cite him for the being the worst president ever as far as being a conduit for peace in the Middle East. That a tough conclusion to draw given Clinton's apparent involvement, the Rabin-Arafat meeting on the White House lawn, and his flight into Gaza Airport in Airforce One later on.

The problem is that Clinton, in spite of understandings under the Oslo Accords that Israel would halt its colonization of the West Bank and the other territories, during his two terms as president, Israel DOUBLED the number of settlements and the settler population. This is a smart man who knew what he was doing. AIPAC money was always in Clinton's mind.

In any case, he's rated as the worst president as far as Middle East peace is concerned. Slick Willie is not a name he obtained easily, but he deserves it as far as the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is concerned. He was two faced and deceptive, and later helped to engineer the "blame Arafat" lie and the "generous offer" hoax.

So you are interested in IP, is that so?

Re: right....

The question is irrelevant. Try looking up Phil Weiss or Richard Silverstein or Antony Lowenstein for Jewish bloggers who are against what is happening in Palestine.

I could give you the names of many more human rights activists who are Jewish, and many more who are not. Does it matter? Human and civil rights principles are what they are, unchangeable.

From what you are saying, if you are not Jewish you are likely to be anti-Semitic, but if you are, you are not. How silly.

I'm not impressed with you, whatever your name is, and it seems to me that your are here to cause mischief. Seen it before. It's not a problem.

A GIYUS operator?

I think one of the most alienating tendencies for liberal Jewish supporters of Israel is when progressive anti-Zionists, such as yourself, suggest that our disagreements with you are not genuine... that we are "operatives" of some sort or other, rather than regular people.

It's nothing but a cheap way to delegitimize the "other."

Re: A GIYUS operator?

You seem to show up at the oddest times.

Your comment is welcome and I will be careful about bringing GIYUS into the fray. However, you do realize that GIYUS did a widespread recruitment job and its presence on sites is never a low probability hypothesis. As GIYUS urges bloggers to go to numerous political sites on the internet in order to counteract criticism of Israel with a variety of talking points (propaganda), including even defense of the occupation and colonialism, its a role that cannot ever be discounted. What is particularly disturbing is the denigration of Palestinians living in the occupied territories, who are fighting for a homeland of their own, as terrorists and other sorted individuals, and/or blaming Palestinians for the fact that they have no homeland because...the reasons are unending, but not the occupation or colonialism.

Thanks for your input, otherwise.

here's a question for you:

are you an Arab or a Muslim? Just curious.

and maybe, have you considered that some in the Democratic Party, the party of FDR, Truman, Kennedy, and Clinton are getting sick of the relentless hate for anything and everything America and Israel do? Overt support of Islamic terrorists who are NOT liberal, nor truly adhere to the real ideas of what the left should be, such as equal rights for women, minorities, gays, free speech, art, and so on?

I posted this diary as an alert that MyDD was being spammed by what appear to be troll diaries, over a dozen in 15 minutes or so.

Re: no this one

So you understand where you yourself are coming from. Good. That diary is a lesson to people who wish to spend their time killing messengers, diarists, for the purpose of silencing their loud protests on behalf of the victims of human rights injustices.

Re: wh wont you answer?

Oh please. The only thing you have accomplished by hijacking this diary and turning it into an IP diary is to come out of your closet. When people seem more interested in diarists than the content of their diaries, it is evident that they could care less about substance and more about silencing, in this case, a human rights issue.

You have no interest in doing anything but quieting the airwaves on the matter of Israel's colonialism. You're for two states about as much as the Likud party in Israel.

The diary of mine you quoted is loaded with information from real liberal Jewish peace activists and you are obviously not one of them. As I stated earlier, goodbye.

Re: you guys are sooo into "winning"

For a guy that doesn't care about winning you are unusually persistent, and not just on this thread.

The proper response at being on a thread when your first ten attempts to make your point and/or respond to critics result in bubkis is to say "Fuck it, it is a big blogosphere, and I got better things to do".

But a quick examination of Hidden Comments shows that your actual reaction was to double down on both volume and vitriol.

Perhaps you are not even aware of the concepts of Trusted Users and Hidden Comments but you should know that a certain percentage of MyDD members and probably a high percentage of regular commenters have what are in effect mini-administrator moderation powers as 'TUs' and have the option of simply making ALL your comments disappear one by one. And each time they pass out a '0' your cumulative mojo deteriorates. And maybe no one in history has seen more rapid deterioration in mojo than you have over the last weeks. Far from getting traction for your arguments you are moving in retrograde.

Don't worry about people assigning you 1s, at this point they are only improving your overall mojo score.

Pretty selective censorship

Since the evidence shows that you seem to be its only target. Oh and some guy you dragged into your flame war. I mean even paranoids have real enemies but I don't think the entire MyDD community (or perhaps cabal) got together and decided to target a single commenter.

Get paranoid much?

My ratings page shows 13 rated comments, all of them '2's I have not given a '0' to you or anyone.

http://www.mydd.com/user/Bruce%20Webb/ra tings

And I only show 49 total comments since Nov 17th.

http://www.mydd.com/user/Bruce%20Webb/co mments/2

If you back out the seven (after this eight) I made in response to you on two threads today that works out to one comment a day on average over the last six weeks. I must be an unusually effective thug/bully boy if a single comment per day on average and no troll ratings handed out counts as being thuggish, gosh who knew that commenters trembled at even the hint of my dissatisfaction and fled in utter confusion.

As to cyber stalking I think you have delusions of adequacy. The better metaphor would be in sea warfare during the hundred and fifty years before 1918 where in the midst of battle each ship coming by a disabled but not sunken ship would fire a broadside or battery into it just to make sure it could not be salvaged later on.

Which is where you reputation will probably be after today, unsalvageable.

Re: oh and btw

You bought into the propaganda, in particular, the Clinton-Dennis Ross line, which was intended to save Barak's ass. Is Barak capable of guilt. After the Gaza massacre I would say no. But in 2005 he had a weak moment, and came out honestly to admit that the Israel Knesset could never have support a Palestinian state at that time (now even less so). Why? Because, quoting Barak, not even his own party would have voted to remove (disengage) a single settlement. And he was with the so-called left wing party at the time, Labor.

Find the link: Ehud Barak on Charlie Rose Show, January 25, 2005/

And as for Clinton's Taba nonsense, according to Barak, Taba was nothing, just low level people talking. Yeah, now you are going to tell me the Clinton could do what Barak couldn't do. Give the Palestinians 97% of the Palestinian territories. You just don't know Slick Willie. He along with Ross helped to establish the "generous offer" nonsense. Clinton left the Democratic party before he was president, and became Republican Lite. And on IP peace, he was Republican Lite in spades.

Difference between a troll

and a flame warrior?

Not much, it is mostly a matter of intent. A troll sets out to  hijack the thread, where flame warriors are mostly shouting "Look at me!" with the actual hijacking being more or less incidental.

BTW there is a difference between a cyber-stalker and someone giving you the hint that you are boring and non-productive and so giving a polite hint by using various forms of 'STFU you are wasting everyone's time'.

And lud if you are feeling like you are missing something you might ask a TU to look in Hidden Comment Land. I am not saying you set an all time record but it is damn impressive. Out of the last 150 Hidden Comments there are six commenters represented, three with one comment each, one with three, about 20 or so from your interlocutor in a particular flame war on "Health Care Reform Frauds and Fantasies". leaving about 124 to your "credit". And most of the rest by all appearances in reaction to you. My favorite is currently (though I suspect not for long) #84 "go ahead cebsor me - ban me" (sic). And it is amazing how many of those subject headings simply ooze self-pity and a persecution complex coupled with an odd triumphalism.

There are names for people whose basic argument boils down to "Everybody here is wrong but me" and who on being kicked out wander away muttering "that site sucked anyway, why did I waste day after day posting there for nothing?"

An excellent question. Because if we are all poopy-heads why are you still here?

Why are you the only one targeted?

It is not like you are the only poster or commenter with this same general set of opinions. Do you think you are being targeted by cyber bullies because you are the only one of them that is so effective that you have to be shut down?

And I don't see that my critique falls into the FU jerkwad mode, though that is certainly close to my feelings at this point.

Your intentions may be pure as the driven snow, but people are treating you like a troll because you are acting exactly as trolls act and in doing so have rapidly worn out the typically tolerant audience at MyDD.

To repeat a point made above and below, the ONLY comments being hidden are yours (the large majority over the last week) and those who got dragged into flame wars initiated by you. Maybe you should take the rest of the afternoon off, have a beer and watch some football while thinking over why nobody seems to be convinced by any of your arguments, at least as far as I can see.

Again, if Jerome asks me to avoid you, I'll be happy to do so.  If Jerome bans me, I'll be fine with that as well.  In the mean time, I think your threats are empty.

Apparently this is a shoe lobby

The senate is to pass a bill with a mandate to buy shoes.

Unless they're tax deductible, I'm going to refuse.

Re: you really have nothing better to do

I do.  Lot's of stuff.  I've been doing it on and off all day.  Want a list?  None of your business actually.  

But do you?

It may cost you a great deal of time and exertion, but do not assume the same of others.

Re: what can one say to such

Hmmm.  If by going to my profile and clicking on "feedback" takes many hours, and if then responding represents "stalking" you would be right.  But neither is true.  Just more ad hominem crap.

Re: there are those who cant find a job

Most of us here do not divide the world into "good" and "evil." That's a neo-con perspective.

Re: look at stalkerson

Never accused you of racism. Another lie from a serial liar.

I didn't call you a non-stop liar, just a habitual one.  See your claim that I called you a racist above.  You also claimed I was emailing you today.  These are more evidence that you are indeed, by definition a liar.

I have never called you mentally disturbed.  Never.  You are projecting now.  That's your game.  You consistently make reference to my supposed mental impairment.  I respect those who struggle with mental and emotional illness.  They deserve our compassion.  I would never throw an accusation out simply to try to insult someone.  Your game.  Not mine.  Just another lie.  Just more proof you are a liar.

I did, however, point out that you and "more" compulsively divide the world into good and evil and that this resembles a neo-con perspective.  I made no reference to your party affiliation.

I never called you evil.

Another lie.

Stop lying and I will stop calling you a liar.

Re: what a total faker you are

You make all my points for me:

"guy - you really, really, REALLY have issues..."

I never raise the question of your mental and emotional well-being.  But you cannot respond to me without doing so.  Find one place where I used this method so dear to you.  If you cannot, then you add to the mountain of evidence that you are a serial liar.

"you have accused me of all these things"

No.  I haven't.  I pointed out there was something homophobic in your comment.  There was.  It''s there for all to see.  But I never called you a homophobe.  I do not know you and do not pretend to.  That, again, is your game, not mine.

"aqnd you have rac issuese up your ass"

I see I have upset you.  I think this is supposed to communicate that I have race issues up my ass.  Care to substantiate this?  Where do you get this?

"did you refer to President Trumka as a fat old white guy - yes or no?"

No.  Never.  Wasn't me.  Not my view and not my style.  When you lump people together you end up misrepresenting them.  Whether intentionally or not, you end up slandering and lying about them.  I don't do this.  Not my mode and not my problem.  This is your game and you need to live with its consequences with regard to your credibility.

Re: fake

I never called Trumka anything.  Are you going to keep repeating that lie?  

I'm not big on name calling.  That's your game, not mine.  Call everyone anything you want.  But these are not arguments.

But don't worry, "more" is going to run me out of here with Jerome and the army of PUMA saints that is mustering as we type.  Good luck with that.  It wouldn't matter to me one way or the other.

Re: Is MyDD under attack?

Simple answer - yup.

So many comments. So little comment.

Re: Is MyDD under attack?

How are you proposing to do this to yourselves?

Of course, I know how you see yourselves and who your targets are.  I know I head that list.  I'm just wondering how two new or returning users, who have blown their credibility with 85% of this community are going to "weed out" members in good standing like myself?  Why do you believe you have this ability?

Re: Is MyDD under attack?

1. I do not drink koolaid.  That cliche is your weakness.

2. I am not the member of any brigade.

3. I have never attempted to censor anyone.

4. If Jerome wanted me gone, I would be.

5. If this site is only open to those who agree with your "truth," what happens to your freedom of speech argument?

Re: i keep telling you i dont want to fight

I never claimed to be aggrieved.  I simply oppose your tactics.  Stop using offensive and counterproductive tactics around here and I will cease to oppose them.

You have no right to demand that those who disagree with you stay away from you.  Opposing is not harassing or stalking.  Constantly accusing someone of harassing and stalking you does, however, constitute abuse, which merits further opposition.  If you want to control the traffic in your diaries, or in the diaries of others, start your own blog.  Otherwise, you are free to respond.  I have never tried to impede you in this.

Re: Stalkerson

I don't control anyone.  I stop and I start as I please, which is no more right than you possess.  

Again, please feel free to alert the admins.  They can judge between us.  I will comply happily with their request to stay away from you.  You have no right to request this when you consistently post comments and diaries that are dishonest and antagonistic.  You clearly dislike my responses, but instead of answering these criticisms all you seem capable of doing is going through the same lies and insults.  These do not impress me.  I will keep opposing as I see fit.  

As for the wager you propose, it's an unprovable one as my response does not constitute evidence that I "cant help but respond."  I respond because I choose to.

Hey ludwigvan/moremoremore --

the next time you want to call me a "total dick," why don't you go ahead and do it in public? I downrate a bunch of LV/MMM troll comments in this thread and a few minutes later I get this email -- just a subject line:

what a total dick you are blogger boy!

FYI, I am a blogger girl.
