A Soul Destroying Orgy Of Futility

30 Aug

In my first of these new blogs I referred to “a soul destroying orgy of futility” which brings me down on various sites to the extent that I really do need, for the sake of my own sanity, to leave well alone.  Ed West tells me I’ll return:

I’m not so sure, with every passing day it gets easier.  Plus there’s always lurking, plus with the DT blogs there’s also the option to comment via twitter with a link.

My Tweet

There, comment made, implied whackery, no need to get into a conversation with Tea Partiers.  Done.

I find this, like blogging, quite therapeutic.  Blogging can be therapeutic, I’m sure there are those who can find it stressful, Iain Dale bowed out for a while Delingpole had a ‘break’, but unlike them I’m not having to feed an angry mob of scat monkeys (Screech!  Fling!  You get the idea), in fact there are probably only three people reading this.

But commenting without the soul destroying orgy of futility has to be the goal and it’s best avoided by not getting into conversations with people like this numpty:

Ladies and Gentlemen, let me introduce Dan O’Connor (or possibly danoconnor, Dano Connor or simply Dano).  Dano is a gentleman of Irish descent whose parents emigrated from Dublin to London in the 40s and as a result feels the need to be more possessive of the “British way of life” than most British people.  He was involved in lefty politics in his early years and has since been politically ‘born again’ as a right winger.  Like most ‘born again’ style people he is more vehement than most rational people are comfortable with.  Take an ex-smoker who becomes an anti-smoking campaigner or a sinner who has been saved.  Neither of these is a vehement as Dan in his fervour to protect the British way of life.  So determined is he that he will sacrifice that way of life in order to save it (which to me makes no sense).

Don’t get into a conversation with someone like Dano, you’ll be subject to this:

It seems that the first thing Dano wants to sacrifice to save the British Way Of Life is the language, the grammar, the spelling and even the punctuation must be slaughtered so that it can be saved.  Who knows why this must die.  Maybe too much ect is to blame.

Then there’s this sort of thing:

First off any criticism that possibly Dano’s being a wee bit harsh or extreme is countered with “Oh, well, I suppose we should just do nothing then, don’t want to annoy anyone.” which is more than a bit lame.  The world isn’t an either/or sort of place.  There are middle routes to be taken.  Luckily Dano doesn’t expect balanced debate, which is just as well as he doesn’t provide a place for one to exist, particularly as he ends up by calling his opponent “Abdul”.  This is quite common on the polarised DT.  If you aren’t ready to fight to the bitter end to save civilisation/the economy/crumbly candy bars from the dire threats that a few people perceive then you must be part of some vested interest group who opposes the struggle.  Anyone who doesn’t support Dano’s crazed struggle must be a Muslim, or in the pay of Muslims.

Anyone who continues to oppose Dano will be subject to something along the lines of this …

Which, frankly, defies any sort of explanation.  And people suggest Anders Breivik is some sort of crazy.

Best off lurking.  Sure you agree.
