Polish That Turd

Phil Coulson

909 views

My original post in this thread was quite a bit longer and although it was funny, I edited it because there was no way it fit within the confines of the venue it was posted in. Here is what I wanted to say:

---

Now Bob, I'm not sure what kind of Kool Aid TOP's been making you drink since you joined but you were once capable of rational thought so I'm assuming that part of you still is. Even you have to admit that there's no comparison between the two people.

The first is a clueless blowhard who once non ironically called everyone who disagreed with him sheep.

The second is a fairly competent technocrat who, although he has more of an attitude than you'd expect to see on most alliances' governments (he is Non Grata after all), doesn't say that many inflammatory or off the wall things. Sure he's not too happy with you and your friends now but you are taking part a coalition that's crushing his alliance so what do you expect, a gift basket?

There really is no comparison. Sing it now "Steve Buscemi is not Tywin Lannister."

You accuse him of whining but what I think you and your ilk are really afraid of is that he's right. He's calling you on your crap and since you don't want anyone to see it, you're deflecting the attention by calling him a whiner. It's classic turd polishing. And my nation's favorite newsman has a video that explains that, too.

----

There was just no way that was going to go in that discussion area.

Awesome PR counteroffensive

Holy !@#$, do you have radar or something?

Im surprised you guys havent tried to spam blog posts to stop people from seeing mine.

You're assuming that people actually read yours. The majority of NG thinks blogs are for teenage girls or pedophiles.

Actually, we quite like that people read your stuff and I'm quite happy you are the spokesmen of your coalition. Keep posting.

Well well Monroe, technocrat eh? Aren't you the flatterererer. But I can't send you more aid until the 25th. :P

Are these things mutually exclusive?

You're assuming Steve and Schrodinger let me play with NG's toys, which would be an incorrect assumption because, baby, I do this for free.

12000 views and climbing overall.

Yes, how many of them read the first paragraph, say, "What the hell is he talking about?" then stop reading?

I know they're trying to spin you as some kind of psychotic dictator but I'm just not feeling it.

If I am lengthening the war, but am also helping NPO, that just means NPO wants to keep fighting, especially if Im an idiot.

OMG NPO wants permawar

I think when people step back from their keyboards, stop the mouth-breathing they'll realize that us old guard types are here for the community. Not to win or lose. Not to "rule", but to have a good time with buddies. I have enough freedom IRL, that I don't need to be an $*ing internet warlord for a nerdball pixel game. NG has always been pretty well run by committee with just a Tri making the final decision because they tend to have a bit more activity and information that comes with that. And we try to keep it open as possible since, let's be honest, NGers share what's on their mind so not like a spy would have anything to report anyway.

Is NG going to ever be atop the political landscape? Prob. not, and that's fine. We know who are friends are and we'll go to ZI for them, having a blast all the way down (or up).

I'm not afraid that he's right, because I know enough about TOP's internal affairs to know that he isn't. And I know not to take anything he says with anything less than multiple grains of salt because he was spraining his neck trying to fellate us before the Polar treaty, and that it'll be a few months until he's back at it.

Steve can do whatever he wants, but saying he's done anything but flip-flop immensely over the past few months and attempt to defame a political opponent would mean you're far more likely to have traces of Kool-Aid in your system then I am.

Sidenote: I like your blog name. :)

[...] he was spraining his neck trying to fellate us [...]

That metaphor is designed to or has the likely effect of conveying excessive humiliation against its target. Assuming that it's just the language that you use and not actually your intention to do so, I'll go out on a limb to give you a word of advice, also based on casual observations about your recent and not-so-recent past public displays.

Bob, (internally) make sure that your words (and their connotations) don't become your thoughts - our thoughts are mostly limited to what we are able to say; (externally) make sure that your words really match your interests.

This advice is provided "as is": it's up to you to discard/use it. :)

We legit just don't care enough about your opinions and the rants of an ex member (who honestly needed to vent that crap or he would have exploded) to bother.

lol, I was a whiner and now I'm a flip-flopper? I wonder what my allies thing about that? I love how you try to attack the things that aren't even in question. Character assassination must be the new old way of life for TOP. You stay classy Bob.
