The Monster Hunter abandons Facebook

It's probably just as well people are exiting mainstream social media before they are hounded from it:

I scrolled through my feed. There was lots and lots of links to Proper Media and gloating and virtue signaling about the end of our “national nightmare” by total strangers which I’m being shown for some baffling reason. Then there were posts by my actual friends, only anything they said which deviated from leftist orthodoxy usually had comments from angry self-righteous types trying to shame/browbeat/gaslight them into compliance.

And then the last post I read? Some local dude I friended years ago for reasons I can’t even remember posted a giant screed about how he was butt hurt and outraged because he walked into a blue collar automotive business, and some of the employees weren’t wearing masks. (GASP!) So he did his business in abject terror of looming death (he’s around my age) and immediately afterwards reported the business to their corporate headquarters and the state health department so those evil murderous (probably scraping by on just over minimum wage) employees could get fired and their (probably struggling) franchise owner could get fined into bankruptcy. Then all the comments were people telling this hero how stunning and brave he was.

At that point I closed the page, assured I was making the right call. Any loss of sales I get from no longer participating in that cesspool will more than be made up for by improvements to my mood. If leaving Facebook means that I’m going to be in a “right wing echo chamber” (as I’m continually warned by my co-dependent friends who have become accustomed to the endless abuse masquerading as “dialog”) so be it. That sounds splendid. 

The "echo chamber" argument is put forth by losers and gammas on both sides who are just terrified, not unjustifiably, that they'll be left out of the party once all the popular people leave their fever swamps. Don't take it seriously.

"fever swamps"

That will become my personal safe word/get thee behind me phrase now. When some former friend insists I must dialogue lest my thoughts be corrupted by the "echo chamber," I'll simply say "fever swamps" as I walk in the opposite direction.

I have been looking for ways to leave for a long time now, especially Twitter and even tried to close my account once President Trump's account was permanently blocked, but couldn't figure out how. I also realized that it might not be a bad idea to make a digital and paper backup of my Tweets and FB timeline posts, depending on how bad things get.

In this small Georgia town there are no mandates except what the individual businesses require. You never see a mask in the three gun stores and in the tire/mechanic place I use, only the occasional customer is in a mask. Usually women. There's a corporate fastener store which has a "Masks required" sign on the door but neither staff nor customers wear them.

It took me a very long time, but in the last decade or so, I finally realized that you can only share your life with people who want the same things and share the same values. With those people you can have differing ideas about he means (this is politics large and small), but contrary to the BS people spread about us all wanting the same things, many do not. They are not on your side. They do not have your best interest at heart. They see you as tools to leverage.

I have to confess a lack of sympathy to this sort of thing. The comparison of conservative users and big tech social media to abused trailer spouses and abusive partners completely falls apart when you realize, it didn't matter. They have a shackle on their left leg, such that no matter what realization of the horrors and abuse they receive, they'll grandstand about for a bit, they won't get slapped, and they'll go back to their holding pattern. Then some other event will happen,, someone will feel like they were slapped, and there will be a rash of waking up and breaking out for a while.

An Omega knows this very well.

I understand Correia's use of the tool for business purposes. I guess I'm just annoyed at his use of rhetoric.

For the rest of them, more than using a tool that hates you and will turn on you, the underlying addiction needs to be treated. That is when you are free. You can hate something as much as you like, but until you really, really extricate yourself from it, you deserve to suffer it.

I love Larry's writing. In his books there is this twist. He constantly makes counter suggestions about "Conspiracy Theories," where his protagonist characters are laughing at Conspiracy Theories, and later on stumble into proof some are completely true. He's had an amusing way to deal with this material, and still work with a mainstream publishing house.

Blogger Doktor Jeep January 21, 2021 3:04 PM  

I gave up on arguing with shitlibs online a long time ago.
They are not there to debate. They are there to browbeat, gaslight, insult, and rage.
That is why they will still be around after their "win". They live a lifestyle, and are of a mental state - and probably mentally I'll too - if which they are incapable of being happy. Sure they might gave carresed a nipple during the Biden play inauguration, but that satisfaction is ultimately hollow.
Even the good guys would suffer if some distant political event was all they had. There are good people who have reduced themselves to such and suffer.
Social media with these people is like mud wrestling with a hog. You'll both be covered in filth, but the hog will be happy.



I agree with you on this echo chamber BS. It's almost as much fallacy as "muh free speech". When left facebook in 2019 some boomer friends said to me "how will you make any difference?". These are the same people making group emails caterwauling every time they end up in Facebook Jail and going on about it like their tongue got forcibly removed.

Ultimately, arguing with internet losers goes nowhere and it's a waste of time.

I had already closed out my nain page and intended to close this one as well, after I touch base with a number of people I currently have no other way of getting in touch or maintaining contact with.

Newt Gingrich is there, urging conservatives to join hands with Democrats, I guess for the good of the country. All politiciabs are fucking disgusting. Which brings me to my next point.

Tbese people urging the fornation of a new "Patriot Party" have not and will never learn their lesson.

Blogger Cloudbuster January 21, 2021 3:12 PM  

"Echo chamber" is just a pejorative term for "place where there are people I like who share my values." Who doesn't want to spend most of their time in places like that?

Isn't that why the left wants to unperson people who express unapproved opinions in the places they control? It's upsetting to them. They want to live in an "echo chamber."

Very well. Let us separate. Of course, they are driven mad by the thought that somewhere, just out of sight, out of earshot, people are expressing opinions and ideas they loath -- misinformation! Hate speech! We must be stopped, even if they can't hear or see us! They will never let us go peacefully.

Off the main topic, but I listened to Simon Parkes today on his explanation of why the Storm failed. I have to say - it's plausible if and only if you think the storm and Q was plausible.

I'm going to reserve a % of my allocation of reality probablity to Parkes' explanation, but I also have to say - it's a bit convenient to have a just-so explanation for the failure of the double-envelopment at the last minute.

Regardless, it's all fascinating.

Never dealt with abused women much, have you. This is the classic pattern, only even when they are themselves abused, they will cry, and then go back. Every damned time.
Here's the secret about both abused wives and Conservatives though, they go back because they want the abuse to continue. For whatever reason, whether feelings of unworthiness, or catharsis, or penance for their guilt, or just straight masochism, they want it to go on.

Conservatives stay on Facebook and twitter because they get a little thrill when some new Commie calls them a racist. Everything else is just an excuse.

I've found Facefreak to be an excellent tool for culling associates and friends, especially through the era of Trump and covid. I've just silently slipped out of numerous associations or friendships based on people's Facefreak screeds. Likewise, it's given me good ideas about with whom I wish to associate in my professional life, and gives me further insight into which types of conversations or topics to avoid when interacting with my colleauges. A truly devious sociopath could easily use it to manipulate his associates, colleagues and friends. My family is still mostly there, and some friends from the past. I'll post the occasional picture of myself on the golf course or at a restaurant with friends. Otherwise, it's just another stupid social media tool that I can't believe anyone uses to voice their political opinions or spit venom at people they don't like.

A mass exodus of such that the shitlibs and wokespittles are left behind to deal with each other would be the best revenge at this point.

And the "Cult of free" must end. The best part of paid for service is that a troll is already lost from the start because they paid to troll. This is why I was never against the darkstream being members only.

Thinking of it, paying in one way or another can be money or blood. That which is free has zero value. So out in meatspace saying some things can get you punched in the face. Civilization was better before internet. Losing money is another punch in the face. But " cult of free" can in a roundabout be shamed for operating under no consequence.

Back in the day, before ammo got really expensive, I would hear complaints about the cost of ammo by people who could hurf and blurf about shooting while online, but never show up at the range. So I tell them I have extra ammo.
Finally they show up. Oh look a late model car with 1000 dollar sound system or 2000 dollar aftermarket wheels. Oh look they smoke two packs a day. Oh look they have stories about all those times they got drunk at bars.
So anybody who can't come up with 5 bucks for some online service is worse than a loser. Everybody using free social services while pouring out money for crap they can survive without is worse than a loser.

Leftists don't want debate and an honest exchange of ideas. Retard conservatives don't/wont understand that. No point in letting somebody in my house who's just going to piss all over the walls and raise my blood pressure with childish nonsense, whether it be online or in real life.

No doubt. I realized in my early 30's if most of them were dumped in a trench, set on fire, and buried, the world would be a better place for everyone.

The educated ones are the worst of all of them.

It's easier for some of us to "divest" (to use a term more often heard on the "other side") more quickly than others due to knowledge, physical issues (bilateral carpal and cubital tunnel syndrome for example), emotional problems like depression, or certain family or friends who need their help and can only be accessed by Facebook. There have been technical issues with Social Galactic that I personally just started to make progress with in the last 48 hours. I would also like to point out that some folks seem to want to " virtue signal " (gee, golly gosh, another term from the enemy) about how fast they closed their Twitter and Facebook accounts. What about their Netflix account? Amazon? What kind of a phone do they own and how old is it? As Owen Benjamin asks frequently: what does your browser history look like? Do you want to stop pedophilia? Stop supporting the industry that supports pedophilia! Stop watching porn!

Facebook is for dopamine junkies and those who hover below the average IQ.

I left nearly 6 years ago, complete waste of time.

When I first got on FB I was shocked at how much more mean and abusive people were, but cowered when you got face to face with them. Nowadays people have adapted their abhorrent behavior learned interacting on the internet to their face to face daily routine.

It has destroyed human interaction.

That is a bad youtube url there. The "t" parameter is used to indicate the time when the video is to begin playback. The t=4593 says to start playback at the 4593-second mark or the 76-minute 33-second mark. This URL has no "v" parameter which would be the ID of the video.

I haven’t just ghosted Facebook, I went ahead and had them delete my account. I’m nearly there with Twitter.

That one’s tough since it’s allowed me to connect with some international acquaintances the past six years who I reconnected via Twitter after a fifteen year gap. That habit is only point now. It’s part of the problem but I’m getting to point of evils of Twitter outweighing those benefits.

I actually found some of the faces the sign language interpreter was making to be quite amusing. I wish I knew sign language to see if she was actually signing what he said or something like "this guy's an idiot. Don't listen to him.

And that's because we have a society in which people don't get punched in the face for such behavior. One in which you can't do so, without fear of being ruined financially and/or by being made a criminal.

Others have commented here in the past (which opened my eyes to this) on the damage that causes, contrary to the modern notion that it makes us more civilized. Which is empirically false, when you look at things honestly and objectively.

Exhibit A is my brother-in-law, my wife's older brother. I bit my tongue and held my fists for decades when faced with his petty bullying and snarky, condescending comments; aimed at my wife, other family, and me at times. All for family peace, ostensibly. Foolish, I understand now. Only recently I had finally had enough and barely restrained myself from putting him on the ground. With a resultant kerfuffle in the family of course.

If I had done so 30+ yrs ago he would have maybe changed for the better, and at minimum his crap would have not been aimed at me and mine all this time. Doing so now might have brought criminal and/or civil actions that might have ruined me. Doing so in the late 80s would have just been a "fight" between a couple of young guys. Different worlds (not that things were perfect then, of course; far from it).

Except he isn't exactly leaving, is he? First sentence was "I’m paring down my FB presence." Commendable, but far from giving FB the middle finger and closing your account. Much as I like LC and read his blog he's oddly naive about more that a few things. Seems to me he's more frustrated about being personally banned or restricted than anything else, like theoretical concerns about what a pig sty FB is.

FWIW, The Saga of the Forgotten Warrior is the best High Fantasy I have read this century, and is probably the best written series of this century. Hands down. Frustrating that it doesn't seem to get much attention, though I guess Baen is unlikely to drop the series for poor sales. But I plug it every chance I get.

Good news: it's two weeks since I put in my FaceBook delete request. Life continues to be SO MUCH BETTER than before. So many people on FB were nuking my bacon, and I've been giving the 2 Tim 3:5 treatment (avoiding) folks who act the same way to my non FaceBook face in real life. " I feel good. So good...so good!"

"Fries my bacon" means something akin to "adding salt to the wound."

So the scenario is someone stole your bacon, and is now frying it to eat it in front of you. You can smell the delicious aroma of your own bacon frying, but you can't have any.

Usage:
"He's frying my bacon." << "This fries my bacon."
"I'm frying your bacon."

It's shorthand, you're supposed to fill in the context for it to make sense; not look for ways for it to not make sense.

Blogger IreneAthena January 22, 2021 8:14 PM
