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.

I see this crap all the time, from every news agency and source. Images attached to articles that are so obviously at odds with the piece it is simply stunning that these idiots still get away with a shrug and wafting of open palms,"Oops. Sorry, just a mistake folks." What a crock.

 

And the tiny point that this same woman has been used in the same manner and method twice before is a clear indication of unmitigated gall.

No one would waste a bullet on that hezbohag (always wondered what those 72 "virgins" looked like).

But obviously, the AFP like to waste film on her/it. How sick is that? Did the camera survive?

Excellent post, Sir!

HAHA!  Wonderful!  Ahh, Dissing Frogman, you may have to do ANOTHER primer for AFP, because the rumor is out there that the "Old Lady" looks a lot like an "Old Guy " who’s seems to be a regular EXTRA in these scenes of photographic pathos.  Explainin’ to their hot-shot reporters and editors how to tell the difference entre les femmes et les hommes.

She must be one of the legion of 3rd world elderly that do this semi-professionally. In their cultures, we are frequently told, the elderly continue to be relevant to the family unit, once the men go off to LAllah-land. The reporters just showed up too soon, so all she had time for was to pull a couple of cartridges out of her basket of ammo and ragged bandages smeared with ketchup.

There was another AFP piece from the earlier days in Afghanistan. Some of the high muckety mucks of Al Kayduh were gathering in this old guy’s house for a nice, sit down type, dinner. They were his guests. He was hosting them.

Well, it seems the house got all blowed up. Nasty evil Americans did it. As proof, the old man was photographed standing in the hole that used to be his house. Standing up beside him was the proof positive that it was the evil Americans that blew up his innocent house. That evidence was an old USSR 152 mm artillery bullet. It was caked in mud, like it had been buried for some time, and still had the lifting ring screwed into the fuse well.

Of course, according to the AFP tard, the man was completely innocent and had nothing to do with Al Kayduh. He was just a nice man that invited the leadership of Al duh over for dinner.

A really great video - as noted by others earlier I certainly hope we see more of them.  Very professionally done, including the blooper reel at the end.  Perhaps some suggestions on other instructional topcis:

 

The difference between an actual American who is proud of his country and a Retarded Socialist Ratbag who badmouths his country overseas

How to recognize the difference between genuine evil (getting children to chop off heads) and pretend evil (Club Gitmo where everybody gains weight)

The proper way to photoshop a news picture (see last Lebanon war)

How to tell if a politician is lying (mostly because their lips move I know)

 

Keep up the good work

And how the hell did you get to watching Chiaya Chaiya, eh? Superb song—never thought one could use it so effectively as a background to weapons instruction!! You sir may have dodgy political beliefs but your sense of the absurd is delightful. I hope the idiots at AFP were watching. Hope to see more of this.

Lefty: thanks for posting this compliment in a (globally) civil way, despite your self-professed dodgy political beliefs that — no argument here — certainly conflict with mine. I’m glad you enjoyed my stunt, and I’m sure we can both agree to disagree on the rest. Politely it seems - and that certainly makes you stand out when one considers the manners usually displayed by the crowd on your side of the political spectrum. I’m always amazed however by the distinction people on your side seem to make: you hate war (I quote) and thus imply that I, somehow,love it simply because I support it. Nothing could be farther from the truth. If you allow me to risk the guess that you are a US citizen, and have been so by birth, then I’d say I probably hate war even more than you can possibly do: after all, being native French and the grand-child of native Frenchmen, I’ll remind you that we’ve seen - and lived - the ravages of war at home (and not thousands of miles away from our homes) less than two generations ago. In fact, the last one was particularly ugly, since it managed to combine a “regular” war with the occupation by a foreign army, and a civil war that tore down French society up to this day between collaborators and resistants (and their descendants). Incidentally, I’d like to point out that all the warmongers who managed to set my native continent ablaze all over the 20th century (setting up concentration & death camps, political polices and so on) were “committed lefties” of one collectivist brand or another. I hope you can take that fact in consideration if you ever fancy understanding why I came to hold “dodgy political beliefs”... and why I consider yours the same (worse in fact, if I may say so). The only difference between your hostility to war and mine however is that I know that war can be a solution sometimes. Please note that I’m not saying “I think”, “I guess” or “Well, I suppose war could be a solution, etc.”

I know that. For a fact. And I can assure you that despite their reflexive anti-American posturing, and their outrageous display of phony pacifism in the run up to the second Iraq war, most of the French wouldn’t deny it either. At least none of those who can remember (or imagine) the sound of German troops patrolling the streets of their towns and villages at night.

 

Almost forgot: as for my musical choices, and your surprise, well… I’ll just say that I frequently do not live up to many people’s stereotypes (I’m not trying to be a smart ass here, that’s just a fact I’ve observed time and again). In that occurrence, I understand that a gun-toting right-wing warmongering French redneck that happens to have a certain Bollywood culture might come as a shock to you. I’ll sincerely hope however that this will help you realize that just because I’m fiercely in favor of defending Western civilization and personally kill some of the meat I eat doesn’t mean you can necessarily deduce I have brown people’s babies for breakfast and advocate ethnic cleansing at lunchtime.

A link to this video was posted on SIGforum.com and it proved to be my introduction to the Dissident Frogman. I’d ramble on and on about how great this place is, but 1) I’ve barely scratched the surface here, and 2) I should be commenting on the video!

So…...outstanding video! Not only did it have a SIG-Sauer in it, not only did it lampoon the AFP (and news media in general), but that was some of the best physical comedy I’ve seen in ages!!! Great stuff!

Brilliantly hilarious video, DF!  When are these jerks going to learn that all their fauxtography belong to us?

I loved your video course on the composition, and use of the cartridge for the French media wonks. Could you do another video for Hillary Clinton on say…. ethics, values, honesty ... any of those will make  a good video for her. She’s sure to watch since it will be something very new for her.  If you’re up for a huge video project, how about an instructional video on getting your facts straight for Al Gore.

Ah, come on. Perhaps you are not thinking of all options. It could be that during the attack, the soldiers threw the rounds at the ladies house! :)

Since when did truth ever matter?  The way they tell it, we are the Ottoman Turks, the Huns, the Mongols, and the Nazis are rolled into one.

After the Dan Rather/Mary Mapes disinformation scandal, I am still amazed (although, perhaps I shouldn’t be) that the media are so arrogant that they feel they can make up whatever they like and no-one will question the veracity of the story. So much so that they include a captioned illustration that so obviously contradicts what has been reported as "fact".

P.S. - I know that there are quite a few more media disinformation scandals I could use as an example, but the Rather/Mapes scandal is my personal favorite. To put it in a way that Rather would understand: Post-report interviews of Danny -boy showed him lookin’ about as nervous as a long-tailed cat in a room full of rockin’chairs! I Wouldn’t mind seeing images of those two Mickey-ized and slapped on a t-shirt!

P.P.S. - Fan-freakin-tastic video, DF! You even included the bloopers! Love it!

P.P.P.S. - Hotel - love your remark about The Goreacle (LOL!!)

Thanks! I been calling him The Goreacle since the mid-‘90s, when he started pushing this crap. And I second the nomination of Danny Blather to be Mickeyized.

Wow, I could only have been more impressed with your answer to the AFP (and video) had you used a Browning instead of the Sig!   We can only hope to see more of your work!  This one’s headed to Classic status fast!

Sad that the people who would benefit most from it, the AFP (or AP or Reuters, etc) won’t "get it", but a great video nevertheless.

I laughed, I cried. "Two thumbs up". A masterpiece of French cinema. I am now forced to re-evaluate the French, mimes, and Jerry Lewis.

DF- this film should become required viewing in both ‘journalism’ and film schools. Thank you for the entertainment and the public service.
