What am I missing? Were you a popular poster in the past? Should I be excited about you even considering posting here? Would you be doing us a favor by your mere presence?

I don’t know what a chapo is, and I don’t think I want to.

You can look though the previous tankie brigades on here for a better idea of what these folks are all about, and for a laugh.

You don’t really want to know what a chapo is.

This is a chapo forum and I actually listen to the podcast. Which one of us is brigading again?

I don’t know what brigading is, but I’ve gathered this is all some online shit I wouldn’t want to be involved in.

Raddle seems pretty ok to me as it is. If you’re trying to recruit or coerce, you might have more luck by engaging with posts and incorporating yourself more subtly into the group.

This post is painfully self important and off putting in its tone and delivery.

Asking honestly, was your goal provocation, persuasion, something else entirely?

Oh yeah sorry, I should have warned you, this is all extremely online shenanigans.

It’s all good. I got that.

But, I am genuinely curious about people’s communication choices and how they reflect their values and goals.

If you mean this post, I’m equally confused.

Others as well, but this post stands out to me. It’s almost cartoonish in its self absorption.

It makes me want to know if that’s a purposeful rhetorical tactic or just a side effect of spending so much time in online spaces. Either way it’s bizarre and piqued my curiosity.

Yeah it’s a low self awareness thing with these types I think.

Not 100% certain though. Other esteemed guests from the same platform as this person have given us similarly over the top diatribes. Worse, in a few cases.

Brigading is basically when you invite multiple friends to invade and manipulate another community. On reddit and other link aggregators, this is commonly done by voting up content that is favorable to your beliefs and downvoting those that aren't, while being outside of the community you're manipulating.

Just some kind advice for this community to improve and grow.
