I am not allowed to give more positive reputations for a user but we're allowed to give bad feedback?
No "how about passing some hate to someone else for awhile?' posts?
I don't know too much about Vidal other than that, and also that he claims to have slept with Jack Kerouac. I've seen some interviews with him and he's likeable and intelligent, but so is Buckley.
I like Buckley because he was extremely articulate and brave; he truly didn't care what anyone else thought of him; he gave his opposition a platform to speak their views and I never saw him not cut any opponent to ribbons, effortlessly.
I don't agree or disagree with his views, that's a separate issue...but, as a person, as a force to be reckoned with, he was intimidating and unstoppable and one of a kind.
I don't have anything against Vidal.
I don't agree at all with Buckley's views but , as you say , that's a separate issue ( as an advertisement for conservatism , I much prefer Buckley's "Boston Brahmin" bit than , say, today's screeching fundamentalist).
I did, however, briefly see Chomsky bamboozle Buckley but that's another story...
He threatened to punch Gore Vidal in the face ? I shouldn't laugh ...

the negative rep thing is/was a joke, both literally and figuratively. True story: I was posting on the Smashing Pumpkins' Netphoria forums for a long time, until recently, when the negative rep remarks people make to everyone else's each and every post just got rediculous. there are people on those forums who do nothing all day, every day except troll the forums, leaving shitty negative rep remarks on people's profiles like it was a full-time paying job. It's rather hilarious, actually
so I came over to these forums and just started randomly ambushing people with NOT SERIOUS negative rep remarks about silly things that really don't mean anything at all. Nowhere near as hateful or as bad at the Netphorian skidmarks who troll those forums, but just a few to certain members for shits and giggles. I figured you'd get the joke and reply with something equally comical and "left-field". Of course, you took it to heart, got butt sore, and told me to "go get fucked" or something along those lines. I'd post the PM for the entire forum to read, but I'm above that sort of thing
Now, I'm sure if you DO read this, you'll come back with some lukewarm retort like "Gosh, *I* was only kidding goddamn you're so sensitive you big hypocrite" but really, who can tell with you? You refer to me as a "stupid faggot" when you just got done ripping on another board member's weight, referring to her as a swine, then ragging on her for accusing Viva as being a racist. Then closed your loose ends with a classic public address proclaiming yourself a liar and putting yourself on posting time-out? But homophbia is acceptable? Get a clue
Like I've said before, if you're going to take the internet seriously, then it's probably best you take your own advice and fuck off for awhile

As you know 'skylarker' has experienced a personal crisis and has been subjected to a 'managed intervention'. Please do not communicate with 'skylarker' whilst the emergency treatment and stabilisation plan is implemented.
The Management are entirely powerless to intervene with regard to the 'BrummieBoy' situation. We have ascertained that 'BrummieBoy' is not a singular person but a radical 'art hound collective'. We suspect there are factions of this collective in the cities of Birmingham and Bristol. We are attempting to establish whether this collective has links to the 'Anonymous' / 4Chan web collective.
The 'BrummieBoy' collective describe themselves as a sub-set of 'Artangel'. It appears to be true that the Artangel Art Hounds are moving from physical art installations into online digital installations, and that this site may have been chosen for such a project.
Please exercise extreme caution whilst role-playing in the forums.
There is no 'hiding place'. 'BrummieBoy' has thoroughly mapped the site and no ward in this asylum can be considered safe from surveillance. For your own safety and to prevent further 'skylarker' implosions, it is recommended that your strategy planning is kept to PM. You should also be aware that the legal frameworks surrounding online forums are in a state of flux. Please consult your legal representative before commiting yourself to a course of action or behaviour that you may later regret.
We have been tipped off that members of 'BrummieBoy' formulated online etiquette elsewhere:
Whilst we have, until now, been able to shield our most vulnerable trolls from forensic exposure, no guarantee of this shield continuing can be given. We are currently formulating a response to the 'BrummieBoy' collective but the 'free speech' defence seems increasingly unlikely to hold given changing legal and cultural norms. It is highly likely that 'BrummieBoy is/are NOT 'fans' of Morrissey but are merely using his 'online presence' for an exposition on The Digital Exploitation Economy.
We recognise and understand that these are very difficult times for our troll community and realise that a 'diagnosis is not a cure'. Having been aggregated as a 'Social Network for Sociopathic Narcissists' we will have to re-think the policy framework which guides our delivery of care and support. We hope all trolls can contribute to the future development of this site and community.
