Discussion Rules

Here’s the deal:

Rule 1:  I own this blog.  What I say, goes.  I am supreme dictator here.  Period.

Rule 2:  My decisions are final.

Rule 3:  I will not post or allow material that I deem misogynistic, racist, homophobic, bigoted, rude, harassing, flaming, trolling, off the topic of a thread, manipulative, hostile to the intent of this blog or any of the threads on it, or otherwise annoying.  I don’t expect people to kiss my ass or any other asses,  or nod their heads up and down; in fact, quite the opposite–I expect on occasion some really knock-down, drag-out debates.  That’s fine.  However, what debates there are WILL serve the purpose of Point 4, which is–

Rule 4:  To analyze, critique, research, deconstruct, and fight mind control from a feminist perspective, whether it be subliminal persuasion and hypnosis such as Speed Seduction, behavioral control and manipulation (such as what is found at large in the mainstream patriarchal PUA community), advertising and mass marketing, political campaigns, cult programming, or mind-control experimentation and implementation by the military-industrial complex or the religio-political complex.  This also includes analyzing (declassified only!) psychological warfare, also known as psychological operations.  (FYI, you don’t have to be pacifist or exclusively into nonviolent philosophy:  military feminists are *very* welcome here.  Just be aware that there may be differences of opinion–and be respectful.  And in turn, I also expect the nonviolence advocates to *also* be respectful.)  You are responsible for reading all content on a thread prior to posting; if you don’t, you may get called on the carpet by me or others.  If you’re not with this program, you need to find another area of the blogosphere *quick.* 

Rule 5:  If I deem your comment inappropriate, you get warned once, and your comment will not be posted.  If I think it’s inappropriate twice, I boot you from the blog.  Period.  Life is too short–you will not get to waste my time or anyone else’s.  And yes, I do keep track of names and IP addresses, so you don’t want to play games here–no coming back under another alias if you’ve been banned.  Keep in mind that pissing off blog owners is a very good way to never be allowed to post again on their blogs. 

Rule 6:  Use a name–any name except for Anonymous–and keep that name.  That way, I can keep track of it.  If you want to change your name, run it by me first, please.  (If you suspect you’re being stalked, please let me know–that way, the appropriate authorities can be contacted.)  You will also be required to give a *VALID* e-mail address.   

Rule 7:  All comments will be moderated.  This rule may change as time goes on.

Rule 8:  BE RESPECTFUL.  POSTING ON THIS BLOG IS A PRIVILEGE, NOT A RIGHT.

Rule 9:  IF YOU DON’T LIKE THESE RULES, GO JUMP IN THE LAKE.

 What people think of me is immaterial.  What gets accomplished here  and what is passed on to future generations in terms of freedom from control or harm *is what counts.*  I learned a long time ago that it’s okay to be the “bad guy.”  Approval means nothing when billions of human beings are in danger of being enslaved and having their lives snuffed out because their agency has been so sapped that they can’t do anything to save our planet.

  1. Supreme Dictator? Doesn’t your making yourself be in charge here create an ‘unnecessary hierarchy’? Doesn’t this make this blog support the ‘patriarchy?’ 😉 Did you make up any special uniforms? Dictators all have special uniforms, usually in darker colors. You wouldn’t catch Saddam Hussien in a pink uniform!
    Ok, I’m just poking fun. Congratulations on your new blog! I think you’ll find it, if nothing else, somewhat theraputic to be able to have a thought bursting to get out of you and then having a place to put it where you can both express yourself and generate discussion. Before long you’ll have a huge archive of your thoughts, which is always interesting to look back on.
    I’ve found since I started my blog that I still comment on other sites quite a lot, but that I feel more satisfaction when I post on my own blog, for whatever reason. Maybe because it is mine. I get to be my own supreme dictator there. No uniforms yet, though. I’m thinking something in black with green-metallic highlights.

    “Dictators all have special uniforms, usually in darker colors. You wouldn’t catch Saddam Hussien in a pink uniform!”

    Wanna bet!? I heard on the Q.T. that Saddam was really into pastel pink. You know, *something* had to contrast with that hangman’s noose! *Gag,* forgive me. That was really morbidly sick humor in the poorest of taste…but strangely funny to visualize, nonetheless.:)

    “Supreme Dictator? Doesn’t your making yourself be in charge here create an ‘unnecessary hierarchy’? Doesn’t this make this blog support the ‘patriarchy?’ Did you make up any special uniforms? Dictators all have special uniforms, usually in darker colors.”

    Naah, it makes it a weirdly necessary mutantarchy.:) My choice for uniforms is Day-Glo orange with chartreuse highlights. Could you help me pick out a suitable mustache? That creep took the toothbrush type…:P

    MM–waaah! (Kiss on cheek.) Welcome to my blog! I look forward to your illustrious posts.:) I know what you mean about a big archive of thoughts…holy cow, I hope I’m up to this…and I look forward to hearing your thoughts on my essays and social commentary.:)

    And my recommendation for uniform colors is charcoal gray with magenta highlights for *you.*:)))

  3. Rule #9 made me laugh out loud. Bully for you. I’ve already kicked one commenter off my blog for pretty much the same reasons. You have to draw boundaries, and you have to stick with them.

    I just discovered your blog, and if you don’t mind, I am adding you to my blogroll.

    Thank you, B0nnie.:) I’m glad you enjoyed the Discussion Rules. I thought I was going to get a crapstorm, but just the opposite…the reaction has been positive and supportive. Just goes to show you that taking a stand shows good character.:)

    Hey, I believe in reciprocity…so I’ll add you to my blogroll *too.*:) Nice blog, by the way…

    Thank you.
