the_blather_police
They call me Truth it seems like u cannot escape the voice of judgment even in a place that suppose to advocate free expression.
so why dont we create the blather police whose sole purpose would be to judge and critique other people's speech as if somehow other people's gibberish is somehow an offense to people that have the free choice not to read it.

mos i don't get these people complaining about balther being polluted and what not. fucking elitists. i feel ridiculous pointing them out to the blather home page so that they can get it through their heads that this is an open forum to express whatever one feels like, be it the most inspiring, compelling and beautiful piece of writing one can design or plain nonsensical, random shit. [even the idiot has the right to express his/her idiocy and guess what? you DONíT have to pay ANY attention to it]

the fact is that what makes blather such a great place is the fact that no one can judge you, there are no preconceptions of who you are and that makes it the ideal place to express whatever is inside. it's true there is a lot of stupid blathes being made but it's not like this is something new. in a place where there are no regulations you're bound to come across some crap. if crap or freedom of expression is something that offends you, perhaps you ought to find yourself a place devoid of it, good luck and please don't let the door hit your ass on your way out.

zeke the right to free expression includes the right to be critical. elitism is in the eye of the beholder. i usually try live and let live, unless the irritant becomes too odious, then i do not hesitate to speak out. i think that the recent noise is, in part, intended to elicit negative reaction, otherwise, why do it here. it seems like a kind of taunting or goading, but i will probably never know it's intended meaning. i will be relieved when it stops. 070625

They call me Truth I do not like the last comment on this page and i don't want it to be the last thing someone reads. do i mind its pressence on this page? a little. would i censor it? no. because we are all here to contribute to this vast place, this vast domain, whether it be by writing gibberish or writing something meaningful, whether we bring our pettiness and judgmentalness into the blue or we preach acceptance of all; it all contributes and it all plays its part. the people who want to censor the thoughts of others to fit what would be meaningful to them have no power over what is written here and so there is no reason to bother arguing for acceptance of all people's thoughts. blather will reflect the reality of this world in some way. as long as we doin out there it will be done in here.

gibber gabbers can gibber gabber on as it irritates the people who dont like gibberish. they cant do anything about it and in this sense blather is free.

Strideo I do think we're a funny bunch when we get into these discussions though. Especially when some one brings up some complaints and criticisms and then others bring up complaints and criticisms about the fact that there are complaints and criticisms and THEN comes further discussion on the validity and merits of complaints and criticisms and on the faults of complaints and criticisms.

Personally I think complaints and criticisms are okay so long as they aren't just for the purpose of being mean spirited. In fact it would be a little weird to live in a world where everything were just accepted and no one ever criticized anything.

If everyone is free to express themselves then it's only logical that people will express their dissatisfaction with what others are doing or saying. It's only natural.

. . . and of course people will express their dissatisfaction about other peoples' expression of their dissatisfaction. Hmmm, I can accept that.

Lemon_Soda The idea of blather police is censorship.

Should some things be censored?
If so, who makes that decision?

They call me Truth the blather police will never exist because it would go against blather's purpose. 070626

. arrest NOW.NOW.NOW!!!!! 070626
...
jane oh yeah, truth? what IS blather's purpose? what_is_blather_supposed_to_be? 070626
...
They call me Truth blather is words. bunches of words, strewn about in a twisty tangly web of pontification, insight and nonsensical delight.

but really it's an experiment to see what shape this will take when left at your mercy. take a gander and let us know what you think.
070626
...
mr song nonsensical delight alright and people wine, bitch and complain about nonsence.

just remember to think_of_that!
070626
...
cube It would be interesting if the blather_gods allowed we blathites to organize and then give the power of veto if there was a consensus.

Would we see a microcosm of society emerge? Would that lead to blather_wars?
070626
...
I was you mine you were mine my enemy. no. if that happened blather would cease to exist. whatever remained of it would turn into a mediocre forum, with "newbies" and "moderators" and much other shit.

as far as microcosm societies... i think that has already been achieved, many of you can testify to it. blather_wars ? yeah...just read from the top of this blathe.

Strideo "The idea of blather police is censorship."

Actually, Lemon_Soda the idea of the police is to enforce the law. blather has no laws so what does a police officer do in a land of lawlessness where he has no weapons and can't physically stop anyone from doing anything?

"stop that! I said stop! hey, come on! why don't you just stop?! please?"

I don't really see this as an issue of censorship since none of us have that power, unless dallas starts deputizing skites and hands out some guns which I doubt is gonna happen. it seems more like an issue of influence and persuasion. i don't advocate censorship either except in extreme cases such as the attack of the evil spam bot (see: empty_guest). however if a skite sees something that bothers them and they actually express their dissatisfaction with another's actions and it actually convinces the "offender" to change their ways then more power to them! let's face it, if you can't convince someone around here to stop doing something then all you can do is either complain about it or shut up and bear it.

. . . or maybe make an appeal to the blather_gods if it's something truly egregious such as evil_spam bots.

I always thought the idea of the blather_police was more of a comical one rather than anything serious anyways.

Lemon_Soda I meant if blather police where actually formed and empowered to nail people, based on their own opinions of what was appropriate. That would censorship to me. 070627
...
jane on the other hand though, kx21 has been banned from blather as far as i can tell, what does that say about enforcement? and kari_finn 's posts were removed after i contacted dallas about the incident. so blather is not *entirely* free, though very close. 070627
...
kx21 i'm back 070627
...
jane nice try, jerk off. 070627
...
jane just to clarify, jerk off is not a command, it's a noun in your case. 070627
...
mr song I'm kind of new around here. Who's kx21? why is he banned? what did he do? 070627
...
jaen do some research, dearie.
can't hand everything around on a silver platter...
070627
...
I really doubt kx21 would have announced his return in that sort of manner 070627
...
They call me Truth i aktually liked kx21. his presence was not a problem for me.
People being banned are really a problem for me though.

m137 forsaken by a toaster is getting carried away with an over-abundance of the same repetitive word as if he's an autistic person who has something against blather. My appologies to autistic people, I didn't mean to offend you by comparing you to someone like this forsaken by a toaster idiot. 070710

olive man, fuck the blather police.

its like after reading 1984 it seems so romantic to all of us to commit a thought crime.
or a blather crime.
there's no such thing.
