    I just wasn't prepared for it, I'm usually really professional and nice on Twitter. It really was one of those played out moments, I told a joke it fell flat. It will blow over, but Yeah. Twitter isn't a place for Jokes, I can see that now.

    Twitter always has witch hunts, I've been a loner all my life, if I used Twitter for other than promoting this forum I would probably incite a riot too, people would want to hang me, not because of my views but because my language would not be politically and socially correct for the fish in that stream, better to stay in the lakes and streams I've swam before in this case...

    I've been slowly backing away from most everything, Youtube was just endlessly toiling for google so they could take more rights from us. And Twitter has become this place where if you aren't exactly like the next ten people you run across they attack. It's why I've been backing off the whole thing slowly really, I just don't want to do it anymore, It's why I'm a lot more active here now.

    Its not anything said in this thread or what that woman said, its much more than that...I like the French people as well as French Canadians and French Americans, there are many of French speaking people in the state you reside in, I've visited that state many times, lovely place and people...

    No this is more about how the French have ruined their country, or the way they are bringing it to ruin by what they have allowed to happen, more so the government than the people I think but pictures are worth a thousand words, so I think these pictures sums it up for me and my point...Don't mean to take this thread off topic, just want to be honest with my view of France, the rest of Europe should be taking notes...

    No go zones where Sharia courts are set up, where Muslim density is very intense, where police don't go in.

    Wasn't the one about the freak scissoring accident was it. The Borg demand assimilation, slow to react, but they will find you.

    Sounds a fickle place does twitter.

    To explain Twitter would be like this, All those years we have all spent getting to know each other and speaking to each other, All the courtesies we extend to each other, Twitter is nothing like that, It's all a game, Everyone is trying to speak their voice as loudly and as self-centered as they possibly can to gain followers and attention, So many times, people don't so much speak to one another as try to 1up one another.

    It's not for me, It's not really for anyone.

    I did assume a pack mentality would manifest. My opinions would actually offend and I wouldn't care or listen to them there after. No fucks presently given would feature in my content. I'd lose all my cred in a day.

    The real sheeple athe the trough.

    This is kind of a raw nerve with me also because I am not gay but anyone who knows me will tell you I'm very sensitive and intuitive. A lot of people want to read something into this. I've also had gay neighbors and coworkers who think they can win me over to "their side (?)" just as you've described.

    left/right is a myth, just a way to make people fight for even more insane reasons, beyond the curtains of political secrecy there is no left/right divide, and all politicians are good friends, despite they trying to hide that

    nope
    the way to do it is to find a way to erase animal instincts from the human brain, we are sentient beings, we don't need them anymore

    Left and right is akin to male and female when it comes to the tango. If we all danced to the same tune, the tune would become the Royal enemy.

    Parliment comes from the French word meaning to talk. The Kings of the time who were dictators didn't want it as it gave a voice to their subjects. A document was drawn up for the king to sign which made parliment a yearly occurrence and kept them in a certain form of check.

    So the beginnings of politics was a dilution of power of the ruler which gave a voice to the people through local barons, our MP's.

    A good thing.

    Yep.

    But I think, like all social media, Twitter can be beneficial. The problem is that it gets used, abused, and quickly turns into an addiction. It's information-overload.
