Sorry to see there's still/was a bit of unrest on the site. Hopefully that's all done now. Life is short.

Amen. I’ve been told the world is falling apart and all I can do is sit and laugh.

I suppose you're right.

^ I second that, and people not pulling down clothing when they trump, over not wanting their clothes to smell. They’re gonna be washed in the end. Having consideration for others, It’s easy peasy lemon squeeze me when you know how.

So Many have left and for good reason
so many missing, important voices
tossed aside regardless of fault or not
DU is merely a shadow of its former self
those who look at it through honest eyes
know what they have really done
even if the deny any wrong-doing
claiming innocence whilst fully recognising
their obvious guilt laden complicity
these crocodiles happily smile
but crocodiles are not to be trusted
when they bite the bite down hard
regardless of injury or indeed, death
they kill for amusement working as a team
piling onto ther next recurring victim
such behaviour condoned or ignored
The feeding frenzy has lasted some 5 years
I was lucky I just lost my legs, some lost more
so much more at the hands of so-called elites
those arrogant egotistical forgettable
minute in stature and also in intellect
as in the world these things result from privilege
and undeserved status, many see through them
but too late the cry, unable to muster a defence
those who retreated were not cowards at all
they daily had to fight tooth and nail for their sanity
as this murder of crows embarked on their killings
No evidence accepted the inertia was/is palpable
the prosecutors furnished forged evidence and lies
and the crocodiles, as always, get of scot-free

The Opera remains clearly unfinished – The Fat Lady
has not yet lumbered/waddled up to the podium
about to be gagged despite the efforts of her foul
smelling gang of scurrilous scurvy knaves
by Captain Hook or the workings of a crook
they shall all be forced to walk the plank

All is not yet lost
if we chose to
Make DU great again



I assume that you’re talking about Dup
members in this post, some in particular, but it’s hard to tell. At any rate assuming that you are
I find it Funny you are defending and were / are besties with one of the worst offenders David 🤷🏻‍♀️

our most famous rules are written in blood

that is to say it takes a lot of car accidents before they invent the seatbelt and still more before airbags and finally we have a self driving car that obeys every road law and can never crash. insurance is an all time low. life is perfect.

but if someone draws a circle in salt around your self driving car it is trapped. if a lorry driver falls asleep in the lane next to you you’re fucked.

I thought I knew where I was going with this but I hope uhh you u derstand or if you don’t then fuck off

The right of an individual to interpret poetry as they choose belongs to that individual.
Everyone does not interpret the same way
To police a poet is wrong !

Too many rules,  is gestapo.
Rules explained down to the letter,  should not be necessary.

We are adults,  and we know  what we are doing.
When we touch that keyboard,  or put that
pen to paper,  we have something in our hearts that we wish to express.

There are times when
we have had our fill
of the indifference that surrounds us in our personal lives,  or
here on DU.

Those fiery emotions
may appear in our work
or on a thread.
It would behoove us all
if we were to read our postings aloud to ourselves, feel it, listen
to it.
Ask yourself what is your intention

Is it appropriate?
Will it injure or slander anyone?
If you can lie  down at night knowing that nothing you have done,  or said, has  hurt someone then you have successfully made it through another day

Stop the micro managing let DU heal,  let her breathe.

We have had a glitch,  a painful glitch to some,  let's not ruin the free
spirit of DU by hammering rules and bringing back wrongdoings from the past.

We recover when we have learned,  to not back bite our brother or sister
When we leave the past in the past and move forward in change

We don't need to air dirty laundry or point fingers to create change
To progress in life is
to see, where WE have done wrong, it's not to not look at our brothers laundry list of dirty deeds.

Move forward in peace

I agree

But the problem with
Moving forward in peace
is that there are those
who only want to
Move forward
in peace
on their Terms
SUCH is LIFE

- Simple is not stupid. Existence is complicated enough, without skipping over the 'obvious'. That also does not account for the fact that the internet has no universal guideline, meaning common sense is not always applicable. Hence this thread to establish the basics.

I Agree
Simple is not stupid
The same when you call
some one Ignorant
it does not mean
that they are stupid
many forget the meaning
of the word
many believe it means
stupid
when write the word
ignorant
i mean
lacking knowledge or awareness in general
and when i write
wilfully ignorant
to me means
Avoiding becoming informed
about something
so as to avoid having to make
undesirable decisions that such information
might prompt
like thinking
ie stepping outside
ones comfort zone
for some people
that's not going to happen
SO
they do the usual
for those of us
who look at
the for and against
are  ridiculed
no debate
no reasoning
on why
whatever is posted
is wrong
just mocked
to me
it is strange
to not agree
is to be
ridiculed
mocked
no
common sense
logical
Debate
it is sad

It does not matter what football team
one supports
left or right
they are both the same
