The first is to stop all the forum wet wipes from moaning about the American president. Make a separate forum called ‘wet-wipes against Trumping’ or something and let all those posts go in there so the rest of us don’t have to put up with it.
The second is - get some graphic novel content on the interface, that would be totally awesome. I would literally sign up instantly.
What we need is more activity on this forum so that all political stuff will be drowned by language material instead. Unfortunately I don’t see it happening as the marketing of this site is not drawing a lot of new people lately, it almost seems dead; its a shame because I see a lot of potential here if things are done right.
It’s a real win-win! In exchange for some limitation on free speech (not to be reciprocated in the case of pro-brexit, alt-right or anti-immigration rants, of course) we’ll be able to delight in kind, well-argued and thought provoking comments from you, such as calling people “cuckolds” or telling people what language they actually speak.
I guess confining such posts to a “gratuitous trolling” forum would be out of question?
The Term ‘Graphic Novel’ Has Had A Good Run. We Don’t Need It Anymore
I am not a fan of comics. I didn’t know the term “graphic novel”. Is nonfiction not included in the graphic novels?
DrewPeacock seems to be a big fan of “fiction” comics. I feel there is no accounting for taste. I prefer reading grammar books to reading comics.
“This used to be a great forum … then liberals lost their minds because of a democratic outcome.”
Do you realize that the term “democracy” is included in the names of the most politically-repressive countries of the world, where none are allowed to criticise the political leader of their “republic” in public places? Do you think that “democratically elected” leaders in those “democratic countries” should be immune from any criticism? I imagine you think so.
People are rising? Yes, it’s the people who think like me who are rising after years of repression in media, education, the workplace. And you can’t handle it.
And if that’s your reasoning then LingQ needs to stop the automatic thread feed from coming up because that is how a lot of us browse the forum so all the different forums’ topics are mixed into the same list.
And ps, thinking that Trump isn’t the evil monster the ‘left’ makes him out to be doesn’t make one politically ‘right’. The enemy of the enemy isn’t necessarily one’s friend.
I am neither ‘right’ nor ‘left’ on the political spectrum and couldn’t give two hoots about either. There is no political solution to the world’s real problems - pollution, oil running out, displacement of people and destruction of culture, heritage and tradition.
Plus Trumps entire cabinet (or whatever the US equivalent is) are there to work for Israel.
Am i allowed to say that under your limited definition of ‘freedom of speech’ or is that anti-semitic?
Gratuitous trolling? Telling you the truth isn’t ‘trolling’. Getting people to click on threads which have nothing to do with politics in the title but which always turn out to be about the same thing is ruining the forum.
First of all, I think you may be exaggerating the number of Trump threads on this forum. I counted about three out of the most recent fifty. Pretty hard to make the “spam” argument with such a small number. That’s not even one a day.
Second, I don’t understand how criticizing a world leader is tantamount to hating democracy.
