Swirling Around The Tidy Bowl


I am embarrassed to say that I fell into the Tidy Bowl trap today. After reviewing a lengthy series of "analyses" made by Tidy to prove the truth of the biography of Jesus, I was compelled to comment on a comment left by Drea (yes, the double whammy).

While responding to Drea's comment, I questioned why Ms. Bowl was starting each and every paragraph with a quotation mark without an ending quotation mark. As it turns out, her entire blog entry was ripped off from a religious journal. The punctuation, as it turns out, was acceptable although one would typically offset the entire quote in a written treatise in a more traditional style - had the writer included any of her own ideas. I was lambasted by Tidy for not having a grasp of English and proper grammar.

My favorite moment in Tidy's response to me (other than the attack on my knowledge of the English language) was when she questioned my observation of water forming into a solid matrix at freezing temperatures - her claim being that I just accept this without observing it...just like Tidy and Drea accept god without seeing god. When I attempted to respond, my comments went into cyberspace for screening, possibly. It is also possible that my comments simply went into cyberspace forever.

I have read ranting and raving by others around blogland who warned me to stay away from this blog. I had never been there prior to this week (at least as far as I can recall). It was awful. I am still shaken up by the experience.

I fear that Tidy Bowl is the Borg and we will all be assimilated.

I came back to edit this one more time to emphasize the fact that Tidy Bowl is censoring who can and cannot leave messages on her blog. The comments actually appear to go through some sort of a screening process. If I could do that to block only Tidy Bowl, I would - but I do not want to otherwise chill the interesting and intelligent exchange of ideas. Perhaps if she did not censor the information coming in, Tidy might learn something about the physical and chemical properties of the universe that would permit something as strange as evolution to occur. But as Drea said, "Creation is the only logical explanation."

Comment moderation. It's on your blogger menu. I guess it emails you all comments and you approve which ones get posted.'

I run into this problem when making fun of Drea and that Guna cunt.

I perfer to just let the world see all the mean comments I get.

LOL

You spent some time in toilet eh?

I warned you, boy, not to play with them there retarded kids.

She is a complete loon. It's important to keep in mind that she was in a serious accident that jarred her brain and she now takes several meds. So, that helps to know.. because actually reading it will drive anyone batty. Same with Drea when she tries to pretend she knows about politics, health... pretty much anything outside of her apartment space. Don't let em get to you. The world is FULL of stupid people.

Geez, Pinkster...why do you gotta start shit with these people?

It's funny how these zealots always begin with one of two things:

"It states clearly in the Bible that..."

and

"It's the only logical explanation."

Here's something from Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird:
"Sometimes the Bible in the hand of one man is worse than a whisky bottle in the hand of another."

Thanks for the plug, Psychic!

I have to say, that is a very glam toilet. I think you were being too kind to Tidy Bowl when picking out the pic.

Hi Hi Flamingo ;-) Nice toilet pic. Glad you enjoy talking about me.

Oh... and Badgod.. I actually started using comment moderation because my hubby did. It was nice to have your comments emailed to you. That way you didnt miss any comments posted on later blog entries.
Helps you keep track of things better.
The perk is you can moderate the crap you get flooded with.
Ex: I get comments on post about my son being sick that say "F* You" and so on. What is up with that?
Pretty pathetic I think.
So comment moderation has been a very nice feature in my case.

Yes, Drea, I have nothing better to do than talk about you. I wake up every morning and ask myself, "I wonder how Caleb is doing today?" Then I remove the barrel of the pistol from my mouth, get into the shower and head to work (after rubbing one out in your honor).

uh.. ok.

Blogger FLAMINGO1 provided this enlightening comment...

P.S. comment moderation is also nice if you want to censor any ideas or thoughts with which you disagree.

I think it is painfully obvious to all right now that I have not initiated that feature on my blog. I welcome all sorts of drivel and mindless banter as well as intelligent, thought-provoking discussion.

I would prefer penis and fart jokes though.

If only Tidy would publish a picture of her/itself somewhere. Then, after rubbing one out to Drea's picture, I could use Tidy's picture to clean up.

Flamingo,
Actually. I dont have a problem with posting peoples thoughts on my blog. But if their thoughts consist of nothing but filthy language and harsh insults I dont see any point in it.
Now if someone has a real opinion to say and does it nicely I'd be more than happy to post it.

Just dont write some 5-10 page comment. I dont enjoy posting those just because its so freaking long. :-)

This is my blog. There are many blogs like it, but this one is mine.

My blog is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life.

My blog, without me, is useless. Without my blog, I am useless. I must fire my blog true. I must shoot straighter than my enemy who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me. I WILL...

My blog and myself know that what counts in this war is not the rounds we fire, the noise of our burst, nor the smoke we make. We know that it is the hits that count. WE WILL HIT...

My blog is human, even as I, because it is my life. Thus, I will learn it as a brother. I will learn its weaknesses, its strength, its parts, its accessories, its sights and its barrel. I will ever guard it against the ravages of weather and damage as I will ever guard my legs, my arms, my eyes and my heart against damage. I will keep my blog clean and ready. We will become part of each other. WE WILL...

Before God, I swear this creed. My blog and myself are the defenders of my country. We are the masters of our enemy. WE ARE THE SAVIORS OF MY LIFE.

So be it, until victory is America's and there is no enemy, but peace!

You wouldn't be hanging all over me like this if he was spreading the butter all over the muffin. Obviously he's missing a couple of spots that need butterin'. I'll even hit that little spot around back.

Now how can you consider that a harsh insult?!?

Flamingo1, I am sorry it has come to this. But your behavior in this set of comments is absolutely despicable. I can not believe I was so wrong about you. Not only are you not a sensitive man, you are extremely extremely rude and thoughtless person. You are, in fact, vicious and nasty. Your comments are outrageous. What a disappointment.

So I am sorry - but you are BOYCOTTED again.

BOYCOTT BOYCOTT BOYCOTT.

I am crying real tears about this this time. And I have almost given up hope that your soul can be saved. I can tell that I do not have what it takes to save you. I am praying to God that He forgive me for my failure.

BOYCOTT BOYCOTT BOYCOTT.

I want to encourage everyone who reads this comment to join me in this BOYCOTT until Flamingo repents. I am simply in shock that you are such a base, base human.

Drea has comment moderation for exactly the same reason Toilet Bowl does... to censor ideas they disagree with, but they have NO problem coming to other blogs to browbeat people with their religious beliefs.. Toilet Bowl is the worst About it.. Drea usually just starts comparing the post to something that happened with her family. Gets pretty old.

That hairy prison guard character is boring.

FLAMINGO YOU ARE BOYCOTTED!!!

Stop talking to me. What is the matter with you? Don't you get it?

I don't care for your gross talk about brown eyes either, by the way. I know what you mean. I have seen plenty of inmates abusing each other's "brown eyes," and that is not something I care to discuss. It's one thing to do it in prison. Where there are so few choices to choose between and so on and so forth. It is quite another thing to be saying something like that to me since I am BOYCOTTING you.

I regret a lot that it has come to this. I may have to repurchase those bus tickets to Scottsdale. And bring my golf clubs. Why do you have to be like that?

Pinky, my muffin needs butterin'. I can tell you I'm far more sexy than Drea. So what do you say? You up for butterin' my muffin?

Hairy Prison Guard, just because your back door has been poked and is continually poked, you don't have to take it out on everyone else. You don't need to confess to a pedophile either. To take the edge off, I suggest you try the poking this time. You can't receive all the time. You gotta give back... to your community. Stop being so lazy, and try it. Who knows, you may like it.

Dan,
I already told the reason I have comment moderation. Dont like it, dont bother commenting on my blog.

Cant learn to speak without cursing or insulting someone with childish crap. Dont bother commenting. Cause I wont post it.

Posing a different opinion than one you have is not an "insult" to you.

I certainly did not post any profanity on Tidy's blog. I did say that I now understand why she is unemployed - which is an insult.

While it irritated me at the time, I now know that it is a waste of time to visit Tidy's blog and will not return. I will, however, begin frequenting Mr. Hairy Prison Guard's blog, however. I think his BOYCOTT needs to be met head on with increased levels of taunting.

My guess is that HPG will soon initiate the comment moderation feature.

Flamingo, I know the difference in a persons opinion and a person just being hateful and insensitive.
People have posted me comments that are cruel and full of anger. They are trying to voice their opinion in a way, but they are going about it all wrong.
Writing to me and insulting everything about my beliefs just in order to get your point across in a very harsh and mean way is not okay with me.

If you cant post on my blog a comment with some civilized behavior than Im not going to post it.

No name calling, no cursing, no insulting others just to be immature and mean. No slamming other peoples beliefs just to tell yours. You can tell YOUR opinion... and your beliefs. But that doesnt give you the right to spit in the other persons face.


If you dont do those few things I'll post your comment :-)
Picky I know. But its my blog so I can be that way.

11:36 AM, January 06, 2006  
Blogger FLAMINGO1 provided this enlightening comment...

A. I don't leave ANY messages on your blog.

2. When I did, I left my opinion - apparently you equate ideas that differ from your own as "slams" or "insults" - that speaks more to your issues than it does to mine.

iii. I don't recall ever leaving any curse words or filth on your blog. I save the good stuff for my blog.
