mike fielding is adorable

the word 'fiduciary' comes into play

Okay. Feel free to flog me with macros if I'm failing in any way. Or not? But.

Read it. It's worth it.

A sampling, for the skeptical:
I want people to be able to post diagnostic request posts. I want to answer these diagnostic posts. Numerous members of the community share my sentiments. I've seen explicit attempts to quash speech of both numerous times here, and I've archived the entirety of the community via lj-archive, so I have all the evidence necessary. I'm entirely certain I can obtain the identities of the community members by subpoenaing six-apart for moderator IP addresses, then the ISPs that provide those addresses, as well as specific members of the community, in case I need them to testify in court via court summons.


So the moderators can start allowing diagnostic posts on here. Or I'm filing suit by the end of the month, naming the community moderators as defendants. I'd prefer the latter really. I need to practice my oral arguments and could use the extra credit. Oh, and I strongly recommend not deleting this post. I've taken a good deal of time and effort to write it, and it serves as the basis of my cause of action, the act itself would be furthering my complaint, serves as public legal notification for my complaint and what I consider remedies, and I intend to recover punitive exemplary damages should this post or any comments be deleted, and that goes for you too, representatives at Six-Apart.

The whole thing ends with a John Stuart Mill quote. Nothing much in the comments yet, but I think that's only a matter of time. Comments are picking up, with some distinct WIN emerging.

EDIT: SRY GUIZ, BAHLEET'D. But lovely lapsarianesque has provided us with the original text here here. Thanks!

Hay Guise!

Over in omg_too_soon, the ever Puckish rfjason trolls the fuck out of a community full of trolls by posting a gross-out lolcat.

From the community profile: "For all things offensive, lulz.. and TOO SOON"

Do not click the following link if you are:

  1. Easily offended

  2. Eating

  3. A member of PETA

  4. Pregnant or will become pregnant anytime soon

Dead cat = worse than the Holocaust.

kamdrimar demands an lj cut. "Um. Yeah. Cut please. I know this community is meant to post offensive shit, but that's not offensive so much as sickening."

naughty_fairy calls fail!, "oh see a do, getting anY old picture and putting words on it, does notmake a funny. How is a mashed cat head relevant to a rally driver/heliaccident?"

Special appearance by kat15lee, who is still tilting at windmills.

Remember kids, gross out communities are only funny until someone posts something you disagree with.

ETA :fordanglia has rendered the offensive image in MS Paint for those of you who are too squeamish to look for yourselves. El Oh El

Teh evul trannies!

So over in feminist, demonista asks for radfems to speak up and prove academia wrong.

Somehow, this veers into her saying that trans people are just perpetuating gender norms and deserve to be subjected to her critique because she totally kinda used to want to be a dude and obviously knows how every trans person ever feels.

Also, everyone has prominent adam's apples and surgery is a tool of the patriarchy.

I'm probably going to get banned from feminist for this, but goddamn if that stupid didn't deserve to be shared.
