Yeah, being the only bat-shit crazy poster left from AUS does kind of put you in the spotlight.   :lol:
ShortBob for the "win." 
I dunno what you guys have against Meli

She first came here ("here" to SA, not PA) to ask about small-boat sailing, and seemed nice enough.

Yeah they're all upside-down and stuff but I just don't get the whole anti-Oz thing

Random is indeed batshit-cray-cray and the sad thing about that is that he's not even funny most of the time; but considering what's going on in the USA it's not fair to hold that against other Aussies

Keep in mind that she came after being booted off WB forum likely for not being nice enough. She has stated that she enjoys irritating others. That happens here often enough without it being your reason for being.

She's cut and paste politically which none of us need, and she's got that damaged goods syndrome going full blast. That nasty streak has diminished of late but just like Randy, the nasty streak will be back. Bad pennies both.

Edit: take Mel out of the equation and few here are anti- OZ at all.

The Tall Poppy syndrome is a real thing here. Interestingly the Japanese have a similar saying that roughly translates to 'the nail that stands higher than the rest gets hammered down'. My politics lie very central on most issues - probably slightly to the left of centre given my thoughts on gun control and gay rights, yet I am considered to be hard rightie by many of the Aussies on here. 
Ditto. I get a similar thing from my kids.

I always get a laugh when the lunatic fringe right wingers here call me a leftie or when The Improbable Major David calls me a socialist, NDP'er anti semite.

Clearest demonstration possible of what lunatic fuckwits they are.

Can me swap Mel for Random? Even if I didn’t agree with Random, I’d still have a beer with him.

The other is just a user that waits till she’s on taxpayers money to post enough meaningless shit that her incompetent boss commends her due to her diligent attitude/obsession  to the library’s electronic record system. 

Even in his his absence he is more entertaining.
I'd have a beer with Mel. I don't agree with her on much, but sometimes those are the most interesting people to drink with. If I only want to drink with someone I agree with I could set up a mirror and never leave the house.

Its generally in response to the anti-US jealous thing many of the Aussie posters seem to have. Maybe jealous isn't the exact word, maybe its more like envy.

G'day Steam, 

I did't mind Mel until I realised she was speaking utter tripe over some things I happen to know a lot about, and care about. Present facts and she doubles down, no interest in fact or truth and too lazy to even do the most basic fact checking. 

I have no issue with people airing their points of view, or even fucking things up and getting things wrong.

Mel's problem is she has an obsession with quantity, not quality. In the process just make up shit to pad her desires, even if that taints good people. Call her out on it and it will be batting eyelids and crying poor little me. I've met people like her, they besmirch good people by stealth.  

She's the only one on Anarchy I now have on ignore, and it is so much the better for it.

Back to regular programming.

Bullshit..show me once Where I cry "poor little me" 

Your just pissed off because you went over the top threatening me with physical harm and got called out on it by others.

The end result of the discussion?

"Fuck you scum. If you we here right now I’d drag you outside and beat you to an inch of your life. Take a big deep breath and think before you open your mouth".

Scum.



Shaggy knows few wander into this thread.

Why not? It's not like I care what their opinions are. Cue Mikey's recent melt-down......

Meli has been here a lot longer than me and likely to be here a lot longer than me too - I have a low boredom threshold. My main criticism of her is the seeming inability to actually use a library despite working in one, but I expect that's the fear of having to actually change her opinions in the light of documented events.

As for Random he didn't even have the virtue of being funny. Endless stupid memes aren't actually content and arguing with conspiracy nutcases is a complete waste of time.

Envious of what? Your gun culture? Your fabulous president? The esteem that people.in other counties have for Americans? Maybe the way your government shuts down when your child like leader dosn’t get his own way. 

?? Are you saying he might be a vampire?

-DSK
No I think he is a vegan. 

Multi post in honour of him.

It's funny how some Americans think they are the envy of the world...I thought that was US! :D
