Where logic isn't welcome--The Victoria Advocate

I try to post logically on the Advocate and my comments are zapped as soon as I finish typing. It's almost like they have little j there at the delete button to delete my comment, before anyone can read it. Wow, pretty soon, I can feel it in the air, I too will be banned. For sometime now I haven't commented about/to little j and my comments "stick" and when I challenge him I get zapped.

Logic seems to be the key factor here. If I steer clear of logic and commenting about/to little j I am safe, I suppose. It's just so darn difficult to leave that alone, though. I really try, but gosh darn it, my fingers get the better of me and off they go. Thank goodness there are posters here who understand the frustrations I feel.


  1. Understand - hell, been there, done have the other ex-pats. You cannot reason with these people at the Advocate; they have no interest in intelligent, civil discourse. I myself have not been banned, but I refuse to post there anymore, blog or comment wise. I just don't have the stomach for it anymore. You can get in all the pissing matches you want with littlej or with Kenneth, and let me tell you, you will either be deleted by the VicAd or the thread will be shut down. Just because I don't post anymore doesn't mean that I don't check out what's going on from time to time. It seems to me the whole online version has become a showcase for those two, and while posters who write good articles and offer reasoned discussion, such as Smartee, Pilot, etc. are banned, those who bring the site down 20 IQ points by their mere presence will never be banned. I have screamed about this until I am blue in the face, to no avail. BUT here we can say what we damn well please, and believe me, it has been therapeutic.

    It has been especially wonderful to actually post and respond to ADULTS here. The VicAd is sorely lacking in that department. Thanks for letting me get this off my chest, Truth Ferret. And if you do get banned, take it a badge of honor. You are just too intelligent, reasoned, and correct for them. It will be their loss. The more posters like you that get banned, the more their quality suffers. It is getting REALLY BAD there.

  2. Hey, I appreciate the recognition, Sugar. My husband just shakes his head and walks away mumbling, "You really are into this aren't you. Let it be. You won't win."

    My momma raised a strong, sometimes hard-headed girl and I will go down in flames before I give into the turkeys there. I was in Victoria before those idiots were a stain in their mommas' panties. I'll still be here when they leave and I'll be darned if I let them praise the likes of littl j and kenny without a fight for those of us who have triple digit IQ's.

  3. Well, I have nothing to add. You two have said it well. Reason, Logic, Truth, Intelligence, Vocabulary, Grammar, and Literacy are not very high on the Advocate's list of desirable qualities for their posters, if they are even on the list at all.

    But I can tell you, I am enjoying the hell out of speaking the truth about the Advocate and all of its babies. It's liberating!
