You're dragging this out and causing all of this drama, trying to get rid of /u/boringskip as mod. Just end this mess! We're a website of communists and anarchists so, of course, we're bound to disagree. But you're going too far and making ad hominem attacks against /u/sudo and /u/ShiningWing. I'm not saying this as a bootlicker or a communist, I'm saying this as an anarchist, one who just wants everyone to work together. Please, just stop this drama!

That's not why people voted to demod you. Stop it.

thats why the original thread was made. a month after i made the statement their ideology wasnt welcome they made a huge deal of it.

It wasn't even that big of a deal until you blew it out of the water by banning him for it, a fact that you have come up with two explanations for and alternate between at any given moment. You've also acted extremely immature, which hasn't exactly been helping your case (since when anyone disagrees with you your response is either "this is brigading just like PK" or "so if I stirred shit up on a Maoist /f/ i wouldn't be banned," neither of which make any cohesive sense when related to the argument in question). At this point, you're being ridiculously petty, and an all-around defensive asshole to just about everyone here. I suggest you turn your computer off for a day or so, and listen to some classical music or something, because your temper is the only thing setting everyone else off.

Yes, asking for clarification on rules from the community and aggressively banning people that aren't in your specific ideological circle are totally the same. Just have to get over the fact that the former was posed as a question of genuine concern out of a need for clarity, whereas the latter was prattled on in a trite, vindictive and infantile manner. Yes, it's totally the same.

You need to step away for a day or two and let your blood cool. Recenter yourself on something positive. Meditate or something. I'm not sure what will help you best. But what you're doing here is not helping the community, and it's not helping you.

I don't get it. sudo isn't a stalinist - who cares if we exclude stalin fans? And who did boringskip ban?

I have literally seen one comment from you not bitching about sudo

Wow jeez no need to get upset. Just making an observation

zombie_berkman wrote

yeah its factually wrong, unlike you thinking that stalin unironically did nothing wrong

SpiritOfTito wrote

Oh wow ad hominems already?

I'm not a stalinist and don't care for Stalin. So check your assumptions and privilege.

you literally only came in here to argue with me after i called the USSR and china "state capitalist" and you rabidly defended them saying that as long as they call themselves socialist and communist they are and then went on about how glorious they were. so get fucked

It's called object oriented appraisal. You don't have to see something in black/white or good/bad.

That's simplistic.

You can say "there's some good things and some bad".

There were many things good about really existing socialist systems. The books were excellent. 3 out of 5 books were produced in the Soviet Union when it existed. They were the first country into space. First satellite into space. There were also many problems.

That's hardly me saying it was glorious. But then american leftist, after decades of anti communist propaganda poured over their heads, can't say anything positive about any existing socialist countries without dismissing them as stalinist monstrosities despite the siege their capitalist nation put on those countries to push them toward authoritarianism.

By the way authoritarianism wasn't something any of those people wanted. Not in 1917 Russia and not 1980 Nicaragua.

Where they came in democratically they were just murdered and deposed with a puppet put in that was friendly to US interests.

Are you saying the US is the reason why the Soviet Union doesn't still exist as a beautiful anarchocommunist utopia?

Practise reading for a comprehension. Its an important skill.
