Think we should declare a moratorium on calling people a Tory


#121

but cake?


#122

it’s the solution we’ve been waiting for. it’s the new 85%


#123

dunno what that is but sounds good!


#124

people used to use it when someone do a thinlyveiled brag


#125

fascinating.

In what context?


#126

hmm i think it was louis tacos who said that 85% of the posts are just veiled ways of people bigging themselves up. so it’d get used if someone was trying to sneak a brag under the radar


#127

aaah. Gosh people have good memories!


#128

wonder how often that actually happens without the conversation following it up. dunno, nevermind.


#129

i mean there are whole threads, actual whole threads, of endless polls pushing people into decisions between viewpoints that just shorthand ‘tory’ to try and shame people in their opinions. to pretend that doesn’t happen daily is hilarious.

nvm indeed.


#130

yeah that’s obviously ironic tho innit, I didn’t know we were arguing that point


#131

I feel like we’ve lost sight of what makes DiS good sometimes.


#132

Anyone dune “moraTORYum” yet?


#133

when does it stop being ironic and start being a solid way of making people feel weird about things? i remember someone had to formally ask people to leave off because comments were made about their mum having more than one property that were just bullish (and tbh a lil bit of bullying).


#134

somebody did!


#135

Well I’m not scrolling back to find out who.

Bye.


#136

I think since the reboot DiS has been so vastly, vastly better on nearly every conceivable level with the exception of ghosts of the old board sentiments trying to keep going through sheer stubborn, cynical, holier-than-thou judgemental pointscoring.


#137

bye! :slight_smile:


#138

I couldn’t possibly look at the old board now, too tainted and sad. Lucky for me most of my accounts got banned I must have said some horrible shit :frowning:


#139

everyone did. absolutely everyone. and it was applauded. this board is so much better to the nth degree


#140

I think silly polls about abstract concepts are fine and bullying people about specific things in their life is bad.
