Sounds like you’ve done it many times Howard, the alt accounts that is.

Why unfortunately? Did you want it to be true? 

The irony

You really think I'd be popular in Tynwald anyway? I actually have a political philosophy and personal integrity. It's probably why I get so much abuse.

You could take at least half of the seats by yourself, the number of personalities you have.

I'm one of the more serious posters here, actually. I could write up a long essay (as I have many times before) and I just get childish abuse from people. Is it any wonder I've reduced my output to one-liners?

TL;DR

It is hard to see why people perservere here as the debate is hardly scintillating and it just seems to be full of angry people who don’t really have that much to do during the daytime being bitter and abusive with just about every poster going. I reckon it’s only about 10 people and they view it like their own private members club. The hostility towards anyone but the few core members who clearly all know each other is sad. When I worked for government the managers all worked the same way too - a boys bullying club ran by people who thought they were so important and didn’t want to listen to anything anyone else had to say and if you said anything they viewed as being out of turn they bullied you until you put in to go and work in another department because you couldn’t put up with horrible atmosphere. As such it wouldn’t surprise me if it’s mostly government managers on here filling in time at the taxpayers expense as the tactics deployed are exactly the same. They’ll eventually get posters they don’t like to leave as they’ll just pick on them constantly and at every opportunity until they give up. Most government departments work that way.

Oh the irony of that comment... :rolleyes:

Not really.

I started coming here a fair bit because I ended up spending 9 years caring for elderly rellies. It's amazing how boring having to be on hand 24/7 can be.

The only thing that annoys me, besides the endless downward spiral squabbles, is the use of really nasty derogatory terms like "spazzer" which to me is absolutely abhorrant.

There can be some interesting debates which are informative as well. The "brexit" issue especially polarises here as it does the UK. Thatcher similarly.

But hell, if we were all the same we just wouldn't get on....

I've worked in government as well and that's a fairly accurate description of how management operate; although, to be fair I was never on the receiving end of any of that -- I was fortunate to have nice managers. That said, it's similar in the private sector as well, at least in the big companies. There are some well known ones.

No it isn't.

One reason you quite rightly get abuse is for using playground terminology like "spazzer" - comprendez?

Why don't you just fuck off and take your playground mentality with you...?

 

I dunno PK, Eddie Lowey referred to "ragheads" in Tynwald and it was later edited out of Hansard.

That's an absolute disgrace.

The correct term is "sheet-heads" so I'm lead to believe.
