Forums now live, comments now betterer

A rudimentary forum has been erected on the former site of the EZFKA Banking Royal Commision.

Test it out & provide feedback please.

Comments technology has been changed as well because, apparently, according to the IT slaves, the old tech didn’t play well with the forum.

wow this place is already lookin tops

bjw678

Yep, much better than MB after 10 years of development…
It even has buttons for bold,italics, strikeout and everything

MB
IF MB was this easy I wouldn;t have to copypaste and “” everything. All we need are smilies now:)

stagmal

if we build it they will come

The Traveling Wilbur

But how we will tease haroldus if all he has to do is push buttons for html and escapes? That’s my job!

stagmal

whoa

now we’re really getting the band back together

I request that you do a write up on how TFF could be used to lower mortgage rates to zero or below without needing to touch the cash rate. The peasants need to understand that RBA don’t need to use NIRP to enslave them.

I really don’t understand the details and specifics, and most people really don’t care. The TFF is just the latest manifestation of a fundamental truth.
The RBA can create as much AUD as they want for zero cost and can therefore lend it out at any interest rate they like to lower interest rates as far as they want them lowered. The converse of raising rates has the limit of what other people are willing to lend theirs for but that seems irrelevant for now and the medium term future at least.

That’s right friend. I am very glad to be here with y’all.

God bless the fine folks of EZFKA land, and God bless Billy J. Jack.

Stewie

Yup comments, indenting, etc are much improved !!

Good work whoever was responsible.

EngineerFormerlyKnownAsT

Can you make the comment font a little bit darker please. Looking really good!

stagmal

Consider it fixed, apparently!

This all looks great btw. Terrific work y’all.

When are you starting to charge people to comment? 😉

Winning@Failing

Good to be able to reply to you again TTW lol. Let’s see how long I last here….

The Traveling Wilbur

Is *that* what happened?! Genuinely didn’t know. Thought there might have been ditches and/or seedy establishments with 1970s wall-to-wall shag carpetting in the mix. 😊

Glad I didn’t have to worry.
Kept looking for other username instances wanting to give someone a usually well-deserved thump, but everyone has been quiet for months. Plus I was away for a couple of weeks around then I think?

What did you do? Have one too many goes at skippy or start talking about house prices in Australia being impossible to predict incorrectly for 12-months in a row, let alone, 12-years? 🐻😁

Winning@Failing

I’m guessing it was my many transgressions but the catalyst was when they had to apologise to KRudd. My comment “sucked in lol” was promptly deleted so I followed up with a “censored lol”, also promptly deleted and that was it, everything I submit goes straight to sin bin, guessing that’s a perma ban lol.

Haven’t had a chance to lurk until recently, work is crazy, 12 hour days and I’m not coping as well as when I was younger and skinnier lol. Probably won’t be here much.

Been there a few times, after a month or three I go back and eventually can comment again, not sure how or why though.
Maybe someone of more care factor has worked out the exact mechanics.

The Traveling Wilbur

You’re not trying hard enough mate. 😁

*waves @P e a c h y*

Posted a preemptive seconding (in some detail) below for the need for and behaviour of an ignore function.

Stewie said Ask Mum. So could you take a look when you have a sec’, please?

PS Is there a PO Box I can send a cash donation to for offsetting a tiny amount of the IT costs? Not handing over credit card details, but cash send or paypal (or BTC – screw you Stewie I give in) are fine. Serious.

I forked out for a full MB sub in the earlier days. Happy to do similar now.

bjw678

I personally wouldn’t ignore anyone, but would prefer it over the widespread application of banhammer.
If it’s open source and modifiable I’d be willing to poke around and see if it’s doable, but if it is pre-packaged with the hosting it may be best to leave it be.

Djenka

Ignore is for snowflake pussies. (Wo)Man up!
(Also LGBTQWERTY-UP!)

Ignoring posts should be done “between screen and chair”, not behind screen because it helps self moderation skills development.
Vulgarities and obvious direct insults should be strikes with a “don’t let the door hit you on the way out” sign.

Just my $50 worth of opinion…

Oh, yes, there should be donation setup from day one to cover hosting and moderation. No matter how little contribution is good. $1 a day is petty money for ability to mentally spar.

I tend to agree, but if the choice is ignore or liberal use of the banhammer, I’d rather individual banhammer choice than have someone decide for me.

Djenka

Full removal of a post is DLS-ing it and imo bad.

bjw678

I’d donate, but monero is too hard.
The irony.

Stewie

If you can have BSV you can send it to Peachy’s money button address; BunnyMutton@moneybutton.com

I just sent you $50 (again!)

Djenka

Wrong spot, luckily got some lube 🙂

Don’t have enough time to lurk here and MB

stagmal

get the time, quit your job and become a full time online commenter

bjw678

You won’t get banned here,
unless peachy is playing the long game and plans to become a little hitler 🙂

Winning@Failing

It won’t be the peach swinging the ban hammer, it’ll be Stewie. I’m sure he’ll be editing my comments just like he did in another thread to someone else.

bjw678

In stewies defence(can’t believe i’m saying that lol) the other guy was a knob jockey.

Stewie

Okay – I think I have restored all of them, let me know if I haven’t. I didn’t delete them. I’ve been locked out of my account for most of the day and I didn’t see them until I moved one of my test posts to the trash and went to empty it.

You can post what you like W@F So long as you keep it civil and limit the criticism to the facts at hand rather than any personal enmity that you may feel for me.

I won’t delete your posts unless it is someone else you are attacking – vulgar threats, or personal insults against my character won’t get your comment deleted, just modified as you observed was the case with Chad Thundercock, aka maggot.

I standby my comments re the MB forum – re the dog piling and tacitly condoned behaviour. I honestly got tired of having to continually defend my truly and reasonably held views, from the constant attacks on my character, my morals, my beliefs and my politics.

I think I influenced the people who were open enough to ideas to influence, and for those that remain it increasingly felt like I was futily spinning my wheels and generating pointless hostility.

I’ve also had people try and sniff out my real life persona, and frankly in the current political climate, filled with illiberal progressives, that because they believe they are in moral cultural war, will seek to persecute you without end and ruin your life as far as possible.

Finally there is also the risk that in the current climate someone who holds the views that I do, could harm the good work that Dave and Leith do, merely by association.

I didn’t get banned from MB, I requested a permanent ban.

I still support MB and will continue with my membership fees, as I believe that having accessible Heterodox views in our social and economic narrative is vitally important, and although DLS may be a bitch titted soy boy and curmudgeon in the making, he is a veritable bronze Adonis by mainstream media standards in terms of economic nationalism and national self interest. (same for Leith, but obviously not the bitch titted soy boy part, as I don’t want him to come around and beat me up).

Modified lol, you commit the same crimes that you rail against. I’m not planning on commenting here if you’re part of it. Hilarious to see Coming already spam posting the forum, have fun with that…..

Stewie

Feel free to comment on Peachy’s Posts then and ignore mine.

stagmal

i feel like this place should strive to be the antimacro. there’s been too many sites out there on the internet that have been stifled by hardcore moderation, only the most flagrant abuse should maybe be censored, but even then i personally find most trolling (including chad thundercock’s absurd posts) funny. it should all stay imo unless its genuinely legally compromising.

bjw678

An ignore function means people that really don’t want to see stuff from someone have that ability…

Stewie

I really only have two rules:

  1. Don’t denigrate or insult my wife; and
  2. Don’t trivialize rape or pedos as an insult.

There have been too many people victimised in our society and they don’t need to have one of the most traumatic experiences of their lives trivialised as an insult between a couple of bozos.

For the record, there is nothing W@ffle has said on MB so far that I would have sought the need to modify like Chad. He has his own peculiar “code” and once it was pointed out, I could live with it.

rofl Chad Thundercock I never saw any of that and have no idea about these online political games but what a great moniker.

ThePensum

oh I just googled… it is a meme name for “alpha males”. nm then

The Traveling Wilbur

In terms of suggestions for the site, the one up above from bjw re an ignore function is just epic. Please make it #1 on the nice to have list. Ignore commentor / individual comment only would be a noice option for it.

Having said that, of course, please insert all your witty self-inflicted remarks below y’alls.

And finally, can I just say how nice it is to be able to type a comment with more than six words in it without having to fight my phone and my keyboard/dictionary into submission EVERY SINGLE TIME. Thank you.

I’m using the same browser for both sites and this just demonstrates the *massive* footprint and lag inherent in the MB setup. And I’m not even loading ads there either. 😤

Stewie

It’s Peachy’s site, all suggestions through to her – I’m just along for shits and giggles.

Edit: is it ok if we denigrate and/or insult other peoples’ wives then?

Asking for a friend.
Well, for harry. 😉

The Traveling Wilbur

So you reckon you can take David? Yeah, probs.

But LVO really doesn’t tolerate any criticism well, or just doesn’t care about the site like they used to seem to in the pre-fund days. So you might already be queued up for a tune up – may as well get in some insightful coffee related remarks while all your fingers are still functioning properly?! 😁

Like PVO it seems a sense of humour is gradually being replaced with stressing over success while having to simultaneously represent a multitude of special interest groups while not being seen to act like an over privileged white male assuming authority. Really not easy. But they volunteered for it. And losing a sense of humor as a result isn’t a cost worth paying.

Stewie

LVO is a trojan in terms of what he’s covered and worked to promote re Universities, Immigration, etc. You take the champions you are given, not the fantasy ones you imagine that would be much nicer to champion your causes in a perfect world.

The Traveling Wilbur

Indeed. If anything he is more forthright than ever before. And less tolerant with it, sadly.

I see MB’s very own super bear bcn has come out of hiding. Hasn’t changed his tune though. “Rates are going to rise, banks are going to fail, apartments will be given away for free. Just wait and see in another 18 months…”

bjw678

come out of hiding, ban has expired, same same.

DictatorDavid

No way they would ban him? His super bearish sky is falling views fit right in the MB echo chamber.
He’s still been posting on twitter though under the pseudonym Silvia “@silviainsydney9

Millionaires don’t use Astrology, billionaires do.” lol

The sun spot thing may have been too much, or you may be right.
