Guidelines | consignes

DISCLAIMER: in my experience, the following doesn't apply to 99% of my readership. Unfortunately, experience also shows it has to be written down for the remaining 1%.

The short version, when it comes to my comments policy, goes down to a line taken from the (mediocre) second opus of the Matrix:

"I built this place. Down here, I make the rules."

Let's elaborate a bit:

  1. Try to stay on topic. If you have a beef against the cow-fart(1) induced climate change and this post is about monkey spanking(2), then it's not the place to draw your sword(3).
    I have nothing against a freewheeling conversation, but if it's off-topic AND stupid or offensive, then it will have a badly limited lifespan.
  2. Consider the two following statements…
    • I'm totally open-minded when it comes to rational ideas.
    • It is quite obvious that Anti-Americanism, anti-Semitism, Islamism, Nationalism, Racism, Collectivism(4) and Multiculturalism (non-exhaustive list) exist in complete contradiction with Reason.
    … And guess the total amount of tolerance you can expect from me if you indulge in any of these.
  3. If you shall persist in these ways nevertheless, understand that I'm not spending countless hours of work on this site to "reach out", "debate" with you, "understand" your "root causes" or "learn" about your religion. Unlike race, ideology is something we choose, and for which we must bear all responsibilities. I loathe your sick mindset and what you defend and promote. I've heard all your pitiful excuses for your despicable totalitarian psyche and your compulsion to coerce or enslave your fellow men and women in the name of some "greater good".
    So understand that this is not a public forum: it is my outpost in the culture war you wage against me, my kin, my rights and my freedom — thus, you will only be tolerated here, and only if I decide so. I call the shots and I owe you nothing. As a matter of fact, I don't like having you around, so the only argument you're truly entitled to hear from me would come, if you insist, amplified through the barrel of my Sig-Sauer high powered rifle(5) — because when it comes to intolerant scumbags, I'm an intolerant bastard.
    So keep your distances, and nobody gets hurt.
  4. I also have a very limited patience for social-democrats of all race and creed, center-of-center jellyfish and buttermonkey(6) hybrids, Blame-America-First (and always) Libertarians (usually of the Rothbardian school), Hollywood idiots & Festival-de-Cannes cretins and those Parisians who fancy themselves as an elite when they are nothing but the developed world's rednecks(7). However, I tend to ignore them, so they may consider themselves lucky if they manage to draw some sarcasm in colorful language from me.
  5. Yeah, and don't get me started on journalists and the Wonderful World of Mainstream Media...
  6. American and British soldiers (including the Commonwealth) stand on a special pedestal in my personal pantheon. Disrespect them here, and you'll quickly wish you'd rather stand naked in Mecca during Hajj, wearing only a sign that reads "Muhammad was a pedophile".
  7. I may moderate, remove or edit anything and give neither excuses nor explanations. It has nothing to do with "censorship": I am not a State, you are not a coerced citizen of said State and so you are always free to express yourself on your own facility and by your own means. Commenting is not a right, it is a privilege I grant or take away, according to my right as the owner of this place.
  8. My site is not awfully biased: it's shamelessly opinioned. If you're on my side, you get my vote and are free to rant 'n' roll. If not, live with it or go rot in the gutter.
  9. Oh and, if you're a vegan, be advised that I hunt, kill, cook(8) and eat all sorts of animals, and thoroughly enjoy the whole lot of it. Have fun with your carrots, Doc.
  1. Ha ha. Beef. Cow. Geddit?
  2. It's been known to happen.
  3. Neither is the guestbook by the way.
  4. That includes of course all its variations: Socialism, National-Socialist, Communism, Fascism, etc.
  5. With a loud 'Bang'
  6. Nope, don't know what species is that either, but it does sound like a particularly vile creature, doesn't it?
  7. Tell me London, New-York, Sydney or Tokyo, but Paris is a dump.
  8. Frequently in some sort of wine sauce or with loads of tears-pulling spices. Grapes and pepper count as veggie stuff right?

AVERTISSEMENT : selon mon expérience, ce qui suit ne s'applique pas à 99% de mes lecteurs. Malheureusement, l'expérience prouve aussi qu'il faut que cela soit écrit pour le pourcentage restant.

La version courte, concernant ma politique pour les commentaires, se résume à une ligne tirée du second (médiocre) volet de Matrix:

"J'ai construit cet endroit. Ici, je fais les lois."

Élaborons un brin :

  1. Il existe une subtile différence entre "être familier" et "traiter familièrement". Cela signifie que les culs-sales qui s'imaginent débarquer ici et me tutoyer comme si nous avions gardé les piquets de grève ensemble verront leur contribution à la conversation éradiquée sans autre forme de procès. Quelle que soit la pertinence de ladite contribution. Même si vous n'êtes Vraiment Pas Content® avec ce que j'écris, cela ne vous dispense pas de surveiller vos manières : tant que je n'ai pas été présenté à votre chère Maman, nous nous vouvoierons. Vu ?
  2. Évitez le hors-sujet. Si vous avez une rancune à l'égard de l'impact des pets de vache sur le changement climatique et que cet article traite de la fessée de macaque(1), alors ce n'est pas l'endroit d'où lancer votre croisade (2).
    Je n'ai rien contre une conversation à bâtons rompus, mais si c'est hors-sujet ET stupide ou insultant, ça aura une durée de vie salement limitée.
  3. Considérez les deux affirmations suivantes...
    • J'ai une ouverture d'esprit totale en ce qui concerne toutes idées rationnelles.
    • Il est évident qu' Anti-américanisme, anti-Sémitisme, Islamisme, Nationalisme, Racisme, Collectivisme(3) et Multiculturalisme (liste non-exhaustive) existent en complète contradiction avec la Raison.
    ... Et tâchez de devinez la dose totale de tolérance que vous pouvez attendre de moi si vous cédez à l'une de ces sirènes.
  4. Si vous deviez cependant persister dans ces voies, comprenez que je ne dépense pas un nombre incalculable d'heures de travail sur ce site pour vous "tendre la main", "débattre" avec vous, "comprendre" vos "causes profondes" ou "apprendre à connaitre" votre religion. Contrairement à la race, l'idéologie est le résultat de nos choix, et nous devons en supporter l'entière responsabilité. J'abhorre votre mentalité tarée, et ce que vous défendez et promouvez. J'ai entendu toutes vos pitoyables excuses pour votre détestable psyché de totalitaire et votre compulsion à forcer et réduire vos semblables en esclavage au nom d'un quelconque "intérêt général".
    Comprenez donc que ceci n'est pas un forum publique : c'est mon avant-poste dans la guerre culturelle que vous lancez contre moi, mes semblables, mes droits et ma liberté — vous ne serez que toléré ici, et seulement si je le décide. Je tire les ficelles, et ne vous doit rien. En fait je n'aime pas vous voir dans le coin, et en conséquence les seuls arguments de ma part auxquels vous puissiez réellement prétendre, si vous insistez, se transmettent par le canon de ma carabine de fort calibre Sig-Sauer(4) — Parce dès qu'ils s'agit d'ordures intolérantes, je suis un salaud d'intolérant.
    Alors gardez vos distances, et personne ne sera blessé.
  5. J'ai aussi un patience très limitée pour les sociaux-démocrates de toute confession et couleur, les centristes-du-centre fruits de l'union d'une méduse et d'un cul de singe, les Libertarés de l'École Rothbard conditionnés au "C'est la faute à l'Amérique, toujours et partout", Les Idiots d'Hollywood et les Crétins-de-Cannes, de même que ces parisiens qui se prennent pour une élite alors qu'ils ne sont que les bouseux du monde développé (5). J'ai cependant tendance à les ignorer, et ils peuvent donc s'estimer chanceux s'ils arrivent à me soutirer ne serait-ce qu'un sarcasme en langage fleuri.
  6. Ouais, et ne me lancez pas sur les journalistes et le Monde Merveilleux des Medias...
  7. Les soldats Américains et Britanniques (parmi lesquels j'inclue le Commonwealth) prennent place sur un piédestal particulier dans mon panthéon personnel. Manquez leur de respect ici, et vous souhaiterez rapidement vous trouver plutôt à la Mecque en période Hajj, tout nu avec seulement une pancarte autour du coup sur laquelle on puisse lire "Mahomet était un pédophile".
  8. Je peux modérer, supprimer ou éditer quoi que ce soit, sans fournir d'excuses ni d'explications. Cela n'a rien à voir avec de la “censure”, pour une raison très simple : je ne suis pas un État, vous n'êtes pas un citoyen opprimé dudit État et demeurez donc libre de vous exprimer sur votre propre support et par vos propres moyens. Commenter n'est pas un droit, c'est un privilège que j'accorde ou refuse selon mon droit de propriétaire des lieux.
  9. Mon site n'est pas affreusement partial, il est impudemment orienté. Si vous êtes de mon côté, vous avez mon aval et êtes libre de disserter à l'envi. Sinon, faites avec ou allez crever dans le caniveau.
  10. Oh, et si vous êtes végétarien, sachez que je chasse, tue, cuisine(6) et bouffe toutes sortes d'animaux, et que j'apprécie le tout sans aucune retenue. Soyez heureux avec vos carottes Docteur.
  1. C'est déjà arrivé.
  2. C'est aussi valable pour le Livre d'Or.
  3. Ce qui inclue aussi ses variantes : Socialisme, National-Socialisme, Communisme, Fascisme, etc.
  4. Avec un gros 'Bang'
  5. Londres, New-York, Sydney ou Tokyo, d'accord. Mais Paris, c'est un bled de cul-terreux.
  6. Généralement avec une sauce au vin, ou alors des poignées d'épices à t'arracher la tripaille. Le raisin et les piments, ça compte comme trucs de végétarien, non ?

Help

  1. As an additional layer of defense against comment spamming and surf-by shooting, I enacted a set of restrictions on how you can post a comment as a simple guest on my site (i.e. either when you're not registered as a member, or registered but not logged in), starting with pre-publishing comment approval. As approving comments will take a certain — and variable — amount of time, I invite you to check-in if you're serious about joigning the conversation in real time.
  2. Non-authenticated users are also limited to the following HTML tags:
    • Bold (<strong></strong>)
    • Italic (<em></em>)
    • Underline (<u></u>)
    • Quote (<blockquote></blockquote>)
    Don't bother entering any other tags, as they will automagically get stripped on posting.
  3. Members have access to a greater range of tags and publishing tools, and they can also choose to be informed by email of follow-up comments, for any given thread.
  4. Members also have an easier and more straightforward posting process. Some of the system defenses are lowered for them, and the details fields (name, etc.) are pre-filled with the information they entered in their profile.
  5. Members have a greater chance to enter the Kingdom of Heaven, while it will be assumed that, in addition to an opinion, strangers have stinky feet and greasy fingers. They may therefore be regarded with great condescension by regular members and the dissident frogman alike, and derided accordingly. So wash your feet, your hands, and register.
  6. A reminder: you decide what you write, no matter how brilliant or stupid it might be, and the fact that I let it go published doesn't mean I condone, agree or disagree with it—no matter if I answer it or not. Hey, you're supposed to be a responsible adult, right?

If you need further help with the site, you may want to check the Field Manual. Ultimately, you can also drop me a line. I usually don't answer jellyfish and buttermonkey(1) hybrids however.

  1. Nope, don't know what species is that either, but it does sound like a particularly vile creature, doesn't it?
  1. En défense contre le spam et les tirs isolés, j'ai établi un ensemble de restrictions sur l'ajout de commentaires par les simples visiteurs sur le site (i.e. soit lorsque vous n'êtes pas enregistré comme membre, soit lorsque vous l'êtes, mais n'avez pas ouvert une session), dont notamment la modération avant publication. L’approbation des commentaires prenant un temps certain et variable, je vous invite donc à vous inscrire, si vous envisagez sérieusement de participer à la conversation en temps réel.
  2. Les utilisateurs non authentifiés sont également limités aux balises HTML suivantes :
    • Gras (<strong></strong>)
    • Italique (<em></em>)
    • Souligné (<u></u>)
    • Citation (<blockquote></blockquote>)
    Ne vous fatiguez pas à en utiliser d'autres, le texte passe par un filtre de suppression lors de la publication.
  3. Les membres ont accès à une plus large sélection d'outils et de balises, et ils peuvent choisir pour chaque 'conversation' à laquelle ils prennent part d'être informé par email des réponses.
  4. Les membres ont également un "processus de publication" plus simple et direct. Certaines défenses du système sont abaissées pour eux, et les champs des détails sont pré-remplis avec les informations qu'ils ont entré dans leur profil.
  5. Les membres ont une plus grande chance d'entrer au Royaume des Cieux, tandis que l'on considèrera que, en sus d'une opinion, les visiteurs venus d'ailleurs ont les doigts gras et les pieds sales. Ils pourront de ce fait être traité avec grande condescendance par les autres membres et le dissident frogman de même, et ridiculisés en conséquence. Alors lavez vos mains, vos pieds, et inscrivez-vous.
  6. Pour mémoire : vous décidez de ce que vous écrivez, aussi brillant ou stupide que cela soit, et le fait que j'en autorise la publication ne signifie pas que je l'approuve ou le désapprouve, et cela que j'y réponde ou non. Hé, vous êtes censé vous comporter en adulte responsable, s'pas ?

Si vous avez besoin de plus d'aide avec le site, jetez un œil au manuel d'instruction. Au pire, vous pouvez également m'envoyer un mot. J'ai cependant tendance à ne pas répondre aux fruits de l'union d'une méduse et d'un cul de singe.

Do you think my religion would be accepted if I went to a Muslim country and rejected sharia law?

I just love the democratic process.  57% of voters rejected minarets.

 

Now you have a bunch of people saying "it’s a shame".

 

If you ask me, it’s better for the Swiss to BE democratic rather than appear tolerant.  Tolerance isn’t a good value as such.

This wailing and gnashing of teeth over the unfairness and bigotry of it all is ridiculous.  Religious freedom?  There isn’t a place I can think of where that is the case—there are more tolerant societies than others, true, but most draw the line with how far a person can practice freedom of religion when said practice infringes upon the rights of others to do the same and/or endangers the safety of others, or endangers the laws of the land (that’s the reason why Santeria practioners will run the risk of a crack down for animal sacrifice and why pagans can’t "get back to their roots" with snuffing out a few of their fellow humans on certain dates of the calendar).  If Islam ever decides to rein in their fire and brimstone breathers and fix this nasty little problem of extreme intolerance (there are some other issues, but that would be a good place to start imho), then Muslims might find people more accepting of their presence—as it stands, not only has this not happened, the hounds have been let loose to do as much intimidating as possible, while they hide behind the victim role while seeking every advantage to play the system.  Is it any wonder that people start to sicken of this?

wonderful post

Islam is in dire need of a Reformation, time for a Calvin and a Martin Luther to stand forth and end the pagasnistic deathworship that has subverted Islam to the service of Satan.

 

There. Fatwa that, terrorist a$$hole$.

About this paragraph: "Swiss Muslims as well as most of their western world brothers and sisters, are currently in Meccan Cuddly Fluffy Surah Mode (with unicorns and rainbows thrown in). If you know the differences between the Koran’s Meccan and Medinan verses, and the historical and strategic rationale behind them, you get my meaning. If you don’t, look it up because that’s a bit beyond the scope of this humble post and I’m already far too easily dispersed as it is, okay?"  Please read Modern Day Trojan Horse: Al-Hijra, The Islamic Doctrine of Immigration, Accepting Freedom or Imposing Islam? by Sam Solomon and E Al Maqdisi.  It outlines the strategy completely and is one of the best books I’ve read all year.

Sorry I have not checked in for a few days and came in late on this. Absolutely on target. Will be interesting to see how much Schweizer hand-wringing occurs and how this plays at the "World Court."

Another remarkably well-stated tretise by our French brother in arms! Your talents are under-appreciated and wasted in your home country, Diss. Wish you were in the US to help us throw back the commie hoards - but I imagine you are trying to help save France right now.

"Freedom of Religion" does not give one the right to (as you point out) fly planes into buildings, nor does it give one the option of dismissing the laws and customs of the country you are a GUEST in. Have a problem with that? GO HOME!

BTW we’ve missed you, Diss. I trust, and pray, all is well with you.

At least now the Swiss have a chance to live up to their flag.

Comment 4314

Many thanks to you all (or is it “Y’all” ?). I really appreciate your feedback and value your friendship. I wish I could blog more often these days, and promise at least that I will try to, always.

I am posting the following on behalf of our friend Iwo Gina (who also gets this year’s award for best female nickname) who emailed me her comment as she couldn’t get the posting form working (as a matter of fact, my to-do list when it comes to this blog has 2 main entries 1. write more often and 2. redesign the whole thing and make it leaner and better.)

Anyway. On with Iwo Gina’s comment:

DF wrote:“...Islam, unlike any other religion, is not just a mystical and moral framework for the individual believer: it is a collectivist and totalitarian political and religious system that aims to encompass and submit society as a whole, doesn’t hide these absolutist goals (unless temporary dissimulation serves them), is actively at war with the rest of the world, and has been so ever since its inception.”

You would think that more of the peoples of Europe would be repulsed by Islamic encroachment when they painfully, personally, and (in the perspective of world history) quite recently experienced exactly the same thing under the Nazis. Is our collective human memory so short that we cannot recognize the signs of things to come? If this sort of indulgence continues, it is only a matter of time before the full horrors of this “religion” revisit the world. Only this time, will we be able to pull ourselves out of the ashes and finally resolve that this will happen (as the generations of Holocaust survivors proclaim) NEVER AGAIN ? I hope to God that the scales will fall from our eyes in time.

DF:

You nailed it, solid. Well said, sir.

FYI: y’all is singular. All y’all is plural. Same for yuz and yuz guys.

As to wishing you were here to help us fight back the commie hordes, you’ve got your own fight in your own lands and keep on keeping on. Stand firm and stay worthy. May the Lord keep you and all your kith and kin stalwart and strong. The New French Resistance.

I do believe your readers and fans assume that when you don’t post for extended periods it’s because you’re busy doing what you do to keep yourself and your family fed and healthy. No harm, no foul. It would be nice if you’d make it a habit to drop a comment to your top post every so often letting us know you aint been kidnapped, murdered, imprisoned, hijacked, disappeared, or whatever. Some of us are worry warts, after all.

On a personal tmi note, "The Swiss" are the Old Europers I dispise the least. If they’d only drop their silly pretense of neutrality. They’ve been active, if not always beligerant, participants in every war fought in Europe, including WW1 and 2. In WW1 it was Swiss diplos that served as spotters in Paris for the Big Burtha bombardments and in WW2, Swiss were activly aiding the Nazis in many and sundery ways. The knee-jerk anti-Americanism of the Swiss is no more blatant than that of other standard issue Old Europe folk, so that’s a push.

Froggy, I am always gobsmacked, watching people here in America pissing away their rights and clamoring to be property of the state, Europeans aren’t the only ones blind to history and willfully ignoring the facts and reality of the world around them.

This would have to be the only example of religious intolerance in human history where the shape of the house of worship interfered with freedom of religion.  Maybe the Swiss are on to something and they can pass a law that decrees that from now on mosques must resemble the floating pig from a Pink Flord concert.  That’ll show ‘em!

Re your note about Iwo Gina’s difficulty inposting, Diss ... I too have problems occasionally getting the cursor into the posting area. My last post required 3 refreshes of the page to get it working - this time it only took one - so we’re improving! LOL!

Seriously, though, the quality of your site and writing makes as many attempts as it takes worth the effort. It’s only selfishness on our part that wishes you could devote more time to your efforts here.

Bless you, Brother!

Thats an excellent idea!!   When Muslims force their deathworship on others, others have the God given right to stop them. If they refuse to stop, then that shit is on them, isn’t it.
