You are being delusional again turquoiseb, there was no flooding of my cult is 
worse than yours ego posturing on FFL, not in the last few days, not for the 
last 3 years for that matter.

But there has been lot of discussion on your part of how your cult and your 
ex-Guru Rama was the best cult, was that ego posturing on your part, turq? :-)

 Since the place seems to have been flooded by another round of My cult was

foreshadowing how he himself came to be regarded by many of his formerly 
adoring acolytes:

 Pedestals were invented by a very wise 
   man who perceived the need in human 
   consciousness to cast people down. 
   This wise man realized that it would be 
   impossible to cast people down unless 
   you had put them up on something first. 
   So he invented the pedestal, which is 
   now employed on a regular basis. You 
   put people on it so you can cast them 
   down later. Indeed, he was a wise man.

This quote really nails it, in my opinion. The angrier the former cultists are 
at the person they had formerly placed up on a pedestal, the angrier they are 
at *themselves* for being so stupid as to put them up there in the first place. 
They're still smarting from shoving that big pedestal up their *own* asses and 
walking around with it up there for so long. 

Haven't read Gail Treadwell's book, and doubt that I will, because I have zero 
interest in Amma, and even less in her followers. The whole holy hug thing 
has always creeped me out. But I hope that reports of Gail's equanimity in the 
book are true, and that she managed to avoid the try to put all the blame on 
the teacher for my *own* stupidity trap that renders so many of these cult 
exposes unreadable. If she pulled it off, more power to her, because I had to 
walk that fine line myself, writing a book about a former cult leader, and 
trying (a la the FFL Home Page) to take what you can and leave the rest. 

The problem is NOT the cult leaders. The problem is the cultists who create 
them. 

It really doesn't matter who the cult leader in question was -- someone as 
famous as Maharishi or Amma, or a total nobody such as Robin Carlsen. They may 
*have* been as evil as their former groupies/current detractors say they are, 
but it's the *groupies themselves* that are the problem IMO. If they hadn't 
been so intent on finding someone to idolize, place up on a pedestal of their 
own making, and tell them how to lead their lives, they wouldn't have been so 
pissed off when the pedestal came tumbling down on them.

It's cold here in Paris this morning, the temps in the subject line, in
Celsius and Fahrenheit, respectively. Doesn't actually lend itself to
cafe terrace writing, unless you find one with good space heaters, and
free Wifi. I did. Be warned. :-)

The people passing by are bundled up, except for the occasional women
who use it as an occasion to wear their heels and black tights, which do
wonders to warm up the whole environment. Bless them for their
compassion. :-)

The people in this particular cafe are more of the New York Sunday
Morning mindset, reading their newspapers or magazines and looking as if
they suffer from sleep inertia
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sleep_inertia
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sleep_inertia  ). Me, I never seem to
have to worry about that, because I wake up naturally at about the same
time every morning, never needing an alarm, and never suffering from
that period of grogginess and reduced mental alertness that many people
do.

This tends to mean that I can easily write in the mornings, the words
just flowing freely as ideas come to me. It does *not* mean that these
ideas are in any way meaningful to anyone but myself, but that's why I
inserted the warning. :-)

Guess I'll just rap about some of the weird things I find on the
Internet as I sit here. The first article I stumble upon is an article
called Benedict Cumberbatch Is A Gay Erotic God In China
(http://www.foreignpolicy.com/articles/2013/11/15/erotic_benedict_cumber\
batch_fanfiction_in_china
http://www.foreignpolicy.com/articles/2013/11/15/erotic_benedict_cumber\
batch_fanfiction_in_china  ), which confirms my suspicion that the
Chinese are even weirder than the Japanese and the Americans. The
incredible number of Japanese who find girls in school uniforms erotic
is weird, and the American fascination for Twilight vampires (even
turning them into best-selling housewife porn) is even weirder. But the
Chinese writing gay Sherlock Holmes porn is just too weird, even for me.

Maybe I'll try to read about something safer, like fashion. Women's
fashion can get weird, but men's fashion is usually safely boring. Uh
oh.

not as if the manufacturers can remotely disable them if you don't make
your monthly payments on them, right? Uh oh.

 I've never really been a devotee. As a farmer I may attend and I'm certainly a 
practitioner of spiritual things like Transcending Meditation but mostly I am a 
scientist and test things to see if and how they work. I don't carry and keep 
pedestals in my tool kit. I'm just not good material to be a cultist like some 
people may be. I may throw in when I see some good work being done to help make 
things happen but that doesn't make me a cultist. Spiritual agriculturalist

Transcendentalism. Yes, I am a transcendentalist with a capitol T. -ist. But 
something has happened to the term, Transcendentalist because of, Utopian. We 
got to change that. Let's with science make it more real. And make it more real 
by having more people meditate. A lot more people. Make it over. People should 
be proud to be Transcendentalists once again. But it has become a line behind 
which those other nuts lived. Thoreau, Emerson, Blake, those German 
Transcendentalists who preceded so much of American spiritual and religious 
history, others like Whitman and Boroughs; some of them were proly fairies too, 
Fair-ists. We got to do something now to reclaim the pride of

 Definition

 A person who sends duplicitous messages to get angry responses.

 Note: The term 'Internet Troll' is frequently abused to slander
 opponents in heated debates and is frequently misapplied by those
 who are ignorant of Internet etiquette.

 Description

 Trolls are sometimes caricatured as socially inept. This is often due
 to the fundamental attribution error, as it is impossible to know the
 real traits of an individual solely from their online discourse.

 Indeed, since intentional trolls are alleged to knowingly flout social
 boundaries, it is difficult to typecast them as socially inept since
 they have arguably proven adept at their goal.

 Usage

 Calling someone a troll makes assumptions about a writer's motives
 that are impossible to determine. The term troll is highly subjective,
 and some posts will look like trolling to some while seeming like
 meaningful contributions to others.

 The term is frequently used to discredit an opposing position in an
 argument. This can amount to an ad hominem argument; a purported
 troll of this nature may actually hold an insightful but controversial
 position that is generating controversy precisely because it has
 successfully challenged entrenched opinions.

[FairfieldLife] So, you don't know any Tibetan

2013-11-17 Thread Richard J. Williams
The term 'dukkha' in Tibetan (sdug bsngal) and in Sanskrit and Pali - is 
a Buddhist term commonly translated as 'suffering', one of the most 
important concepts in the Buddhist tradition and in the Yoga Sutras of 
Patanjali.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dukkha

All is suffering for the wise man (Y.S. 2.15).

The most ancient sustained expression of yogic ideas is found in the 
early discourses of the historical Buddha, thus Patanjali's conception 
of freedom is related to the ancient Buddhist view that the source of 
suffering is the craving for permanence in a universe of impermanence.

Both the 'Four Noble Truths' and the 'Eightfold Path' articulated in the 
Buddha's first discourse are elements that underlie the yoga system. Two 
striking examples of this are Patanjali's use of the word nirodha in the 
opening definition of yoga as citta-vrtti-nirodha, that is, 'Yoga is the 
cessation of the turnings of thought' and the statement that all is 
suffering, dukkha, for the wise man.

According to Stoler-Miller,... dukkha, suffering, and nirodha, 
cessation, are crucial terms in Buddhist vocabulary and the doctrine of 
suffering is the core of what Buddhists believe the Buddha taught after 
gaining enlightenment. Patanjali's ashtang eight-limbed practice is 
parallel to the eight-limbed path of Buddha.

 Possibly, but I can show you historical records (if you read either
 Latin or old Provençal) of Avignon Popes asking to attend the torture
 sessions of heretics. True, they only killed hundreds of thousands of
 them, which doesn't quite put them in Hitler's ballpark, but the
 second-most-read book on the planet is arguably a cult classic, Mao's
 Little Red Book. And he is credited with the deaths of 49-78 million
 people.
 
  From Hitler’s Traitors, by Susan Ottaway
  (1) Adolf Hitler to Joachim von Ribbentrop (20th July, 1944)
 
  I will crush and destroy the criminals who have dared to oppose
 themselves to Providence and to me. These traitors to their own people
 deserve ignominious death, and this is what they shall have. This time
 the full price will be paid by all those who are involved, and by their
 families, and by all those who have helped them. This nest of vipers who
 have tried to sabotage the grandeur of my Germany will be exterminated
 once and for all.
  (2) Speech by Adolf Hitler
 http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/GERhitler.htm 
http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/GERhitler.htm on German radio (21st
 July, 1944)
 
  To create order, I have appointed Himmler Commander of the Reserve
 Army. I am convinced that with the disappearance of this very small
 clique of traitors and conspirators we are finally creating in the
 homeland the atmosphere which the fighters at the front need.
  It is unthinkable that at the front, hundreds of thousands, no
 millions, of good men should be giving their all while a small gang of
 ambitious and miserable creatures here at home tries perpetually to
 sabotage them. This time we are going to settle accounts with them in
 the way we National Socialists are used to doing.
  (3) An eye-witness to the executions of some of the conspirators at
 Ploetzwnsee Prison on 8th August, 1944 later described what he saw.
 
  Imagine a room with a low ceiling and whitewashed walls. Below the
 ceiling a rail was fixed. From it hung six big hooks, like those
 butchers use to hang their meat. In one corner stood a movie camera.
 Reflectors cast a dazzling, blinding light. At the wall there was a
 small table with a bottle of cognac and glasses for the witnesses of the
 execution. The hangman wore a permanent leer, and made jokes
 unceasingly. The camera worked uninterruptedly, for Hitler wanted to see
 and hear how his enemies died. He had the executioner come to him, and
 had personally arranged the details of the procedure. I want them to be
 hanged, hung up like carcasses of meat. Those were his words.
  (4) Samuel W. Mitcham, Hitler's Field Marshals (1988)
 
  Field Marshal Witzleben freely admitted his part in the assassination
 attempt. He and the others were found guilty the next day and sentenced
 to hang that afternoon. Hitler had ordered that they be hung like
 cattle. I want to see them hanging like carcasses in a slaughterhouse!
 he commanded. The entire event was filmed by the Reich Film Corporation.
 Witzleben was first. Despite his poor showing at the trial, Witzleben
 met his death with courage and with as much dignity as was possible
 under the circumstances. A thin wire noose was placed around his neck,
 and the other end was secured to a meat hook. The executioner and his
 assistant then picked up the sixty-four-year-old soldier and dropped him
 so that his entire weight fell on his neck. They then pulled off his
 trousers so that he hung naked and twisted in agony as he slowly
 strangled. It took him almost five minutes to die, but he never once
 cried out. The other seven condemned men were executed in the same
 manner within an hour. They were followed over the next eight months by
 hundreds of others.

Barry fantasized:
 
  Since the place seems to have been flooded by another round of My cult was 
  worse than your cult ego-
  posturing,
 

 Another round?? There hasn't even been one round.
 

  it seems appropriate to repost a quote by another cult leader/spiritual 
  teacher who was prescient in his 
   writing of it, foreshadowing how he himself came to be regarded by many of 
  his formerly adoring acolytes:

 
 Pedestals were invented by a very wise 
   man who perceived the need in human 
   consciousness to cast people down. 
   This wise man realized that it would be 
   impossible to cast people down unless 
   you had put them up on something first. 
   So he invented the pedestal, which is 
   now employed on a regular basis. You 
   put people on it so you can cast them 
   down later. Indeed, he was a wise man.

No, he wasn't wise. Nor is the person who said this, nor the person who quotes 
it (carefully centered lines and all, as if it were Scripture).
 

 Shallow, shallow, shallow. Shallow and banal, but Barry thinks it's so wise 
it's worth repeating.
 

  This quote really nails it, in my opinion. The angrier the former cultists 
  are at the person they had formerly 
  placed up on a pedestal, the angrier they are at *themselves* for being so 
  stupid as to put them up there 
  in the first place. They're still smarting from shoving that big pedestal up 
  their *own* asses and walking 
  around with it up there for so long.
 

 Look, Barry, it's fine to describe yourself this way. It's just dopey in the 
extreme for you to presume to describe anybody else this way. Your insight into 
others' motivations has always been pitifully inadequate.
 
 Haven't read Gail Treadwell's book, and doubt that I will, because I have 
 zero interest in Amma, and even 
  less in her followers. The whole holy hug thing has always creeped me out. 
  But I hope that reports of 
  Gail's equanimity in the book are true, and that she managed to avoid the 
  try to put all the blame on the 
  teacher for my *own* stupidity trap that renders so many of these cult 
  exposes unreadable. If she pulled 
  it off, more power to her, because I had to walk that fine line myself, 
  writing a book about a former cult 
  leader
 

 Was this book published, Barry? What was the title, and who was the publisher?
 

  and trying (a la the FFL Home Page) to take what you can and leave the 
  rest.
 

 Actually, it's Take what you need and leave the rest.

 The problem is NOT the cult leaders. The problem is the cultists who create 
 them. 

 It really doesn't matter who the cult leader in question was -- someone as 
 famous as Maharishi or Amma, or
  a total nobody such as Robin Carlsen. They may *have* been as evil as their 
  former groupies/current 
  detractors say they are, but it's the *groupies themselves* that are the 
  problem IMO. If they hadn't been so 
  intent on finding someone to idolize, place up on a pedestal of their own 
  making, and tell them how to lead 
  their lives, they wouldn't have been so pissed off when the pedestal came 
  tumbling down on them.
 

 Again, Barry, speak for yourself, not for others. You fell for a patently 
obvious phony after having the poor judgment to walk away from a leader who 
actually had something valuable to offer. But you're far too ego-ridden to have 
learned anything from either experience. You simply aren't in a position to 
lecture the rest of us.

The people in this particular cafe are more of the New York Sunday Morning

never needing an alarm, and never suffering from that period of grogginess and 
reduced mental alertness that many people do.

Japanese and the Americans. The incredible number of Japanese who find girls in 
school uniforms erotic is weird, and the American fascination for Twilight 
vampires (even turning them into best-selling housewife porn) is even weirder. 
But the Chinese writing gay Sherlock Holmes porn is just too weird, even for

[FairfieldLife] If it quacks like a duck

2013-11-17 Thread Richard J. Williams
Around here, if it quacks like a duck and walks like a duck, it's 
probably a duck of some kind.

So, lets review what we know:

The Buddha was the first historical yogin in India to attain samadhi - 
the primary means of cultivating samadhi is meditation.

Are we agreed so far?

So, MMY  worked for a yogi for thirteen years; MMY lived in the 
Himalayas with yogis; MMY came out of the Himalayas and he looks like a 
yogi, so he is probably a yogi of some kind. If he lived in the 
Himalayas wth yogis, and if he came out of the Himalayas looking like a 
yogi; and he talks and looks like a yogi; and they call hime a yogi; 
then he must be some kind of yogi.

  If it looks like a Buddha, it's probably a Buddhist of some kind.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sam%C4%81dhi_(Buddhism) 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sam%C4%81dhi_%28Buddhism%29

The Sanskrit word bodhi means awakened. This word roughly correlates 
to enlightened in English. The word buddha is a variation of bodhi, 
meaning awakened one.

[FairfieldLife] Somewhere, on the Silk Road

2013-11-17 Thread Richard J. Williams
A few of you may have got some attributions turned upside-down: it's the 
Christian sect that has emulated the Hindu - not for nothing is 
'Krishna' equated with 'Christ' in esoteric circles.

That's because both religions have the same source: the religion of the 
ancient Persians is derived from the same Vedic-Aryan roots, namely the 
duality proposed by the Indian Sankhya hypothesis of dualism. Both 
Persian Zorastrianism and Hindu Vishnuism are related to the same 
Semitic monotheism. Both systems espouse a radical dualism. It may be 
that the notion monotheism (Yahweh) is a direct result of the influence 
of Hindu Vishnuism, passed along the Silk Road to the Gnostics sects of 
Christianity.

[FairfieldLife] What People Think

2013-11-17 Thread Richard J. Williams
People think there is a  ghost in the machine, an intelligent agent who 
interferes in human affairs, dividing history in half, thus upsetting 
the laws of nature.

The oldest philosophy in India, the Sankhya, posits that all things 
happen for a reason; there are no chance events; and no events are 
spontaneously self-generated. And why?

Because, events happen due to Causation, the natural law of action and 
reaction, where relative conditioned reflexes depend on prior events. 
There are NO exceptions to the law of causation - you can't of your own 
free will rise up and fly; gravity sucks. There is in reality a causal 
nexus - an infinitely complex string of conditions. In Indian 
philosophy, samsara is the cyclic conditioned existence which is 
governed by natural laws.

According to Georg Fuerstien, India's sages assure us that this law 
applies with equal force in the realm of the mind to our thoughts and 
volitions. But, because aome people percieve only at the material realm, 
they fail to appreciate the comprehensive nature of causation and 
therefore they mistakenly also allow for fate.

For the aware reflective individual however, ALL events, both mental and 
physical, are governed by causation. Existence is an infinitely complex 
network of conditions giving rise to other conditions.

Samsara, as the British mathematician and philosopher Alfred North 
Whitehead would say, is a process. And what is being processed is the 
human psyche, which must undergo repeated world experience in order to 
realize its true destiny beyond all manifestation, consisting in the 
realization of Being-Consciousness. - Georg Fuerstien


[FairfieldLife] Re: Troll FAQ

2013-11-17 Thread Richard Williams
Analysis from Wikipedia - conflict resolution:

Responding to a troll inevitably drives discussion off-topic, to the
dismay of bystanders, and supplies the troll with the craved attention.

When troll hunters pounce on the trolls, ignorers reply with: YHBT.
YHL. HAND., which translated means You have been trolled. You have
lost. Have a nice day.

However, since troll hunters (like trolls) are often conflict-seekers
themselves, the loss usually is not on the part of the troll-hunter;
rather, the losers are the other forum-users who would have preferred
that the conflict not emerge at all.

Literature on conflict resolution suggests that labeling participants
in Internet discussions as trolls can perpetuate the unwanted
behaviors. A person rejected by a social group may assume an
antagonistic role toward it, and seek to further annoy or anger members
of the group.

The troll label, often a sign of social rejection, may therefore actually
perpetuate trolling.

Better results normally ensue when users take the moderator role and
describe more constructive behaviors in a non-judgmental,
non-confrontational way.

Trolls are excited by troll hunters and frustrated by the ignorers, and
neither of these emotions produce positive results for the forum.


Engaging trolls results in flame wars.

Trolls frustrated by the ignore strategy may leave the forum (and
either troll elsewhere, or become constructive users) or may
become progressively more inflammatory until they get a response.

 Definition

 A person who sends duplicitous messages to get angry responses.

 Note: The term 'Internet Troll' is frequently abused to slander
 opponents in heated debates and is frequently misapplied by those
 who are ignorant of Internet etiquette.

 Description

 Trolls are sometimes caricatured as socially inept. This is often due
 to the fundamental attribution error, as it is impossible to know the
 real traits of an individual solely from their online discourse.

 Indeed, since intentional trolls are alleged to knowingly flout social
 boundaries, it is difficult to typecast them as socially inept since
 they have arguably proven adept at their goal.

 Usage

 Calling someone a troll makes assumptions about a writer's motives
 that are impossible to determine. The term troll is highly subjective,
 and some posts will look like trolling to some while seeming like
 meaningful contributions to others.

 The term is frequently used to discredit an opposing position in an
 argument. This can amount to an ad hominem argument; a purported
 troll of this nature may actually hold an insightful but controversial
 position that is generating controversy precisely because it has
 successfully challenged entrenched opinions.

However, some cults are indeed far worse than other cults.


*From**Hitler’s Traitors**, by Susan Ottaway***

*(1) Adolf Hitler http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/GERhitler.htm 
to Joachim von Ribbentrop 
http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/GERribbentrop.htm (20th July, 
1944)*


I will crush and destroy the criminals who have dared to oppose 
themselves to Providence and to me. These traitors to their own people 
deserve ignominious death, and this is what they shall have. This time 
the full price will be paid by all those who are involved, and by 
their families, and by all those who have helped them. This nest of 
vipers who have tried to sabotage the grandeur of my Germany will be 
exterminated once and for all.


*(2) Speech by Adolf Hitler 
http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/GERhitler.htm on German radio 
(21st July, 1944)*


To create order, I have appointed Himmler Commander of the Reserve 
Army. I am convinced that with the disappearance of this very small 
clique of traitors and conspirators we are finally creating in the 
homeland the atmosphere which the fighters at the front need.


It is unthinkable that at the front, hundreds of thousands, no 
millions, of good men should be giving their all while a small gang of 
ambitious and miserable creatures here at home tries perpetually to 
sabotage them. This time we are going to settle accounts with them in 
the way we National Socialists are used to doing.


*(3) An eye-witness to the executions of some of the conspirators at 
Ploetzwnsee Prison on 8th August, 1944 later described what he saw.*


Imagine a room with a low ceiling and whitewashed walls. Below the 
ceiling a rail was fixed. From it hung six big hooks, like those 
butchers use to hang their meat. In one corner stood a movie camera. 
Reflectors cast a dazzling, blinding light. At the wall there was a 
small table with a bottle of cognac and glasses for the witnesses of 
the execution. The hangman wore a permanent leer, and made jokes 
unceasingly. The camera worked uninterruptedly, for Hitler wanted to 
see and hear how his enemies died. He had the executioner come to him, 
and had personally arranged the details of the procedure. I want them 
to be hanged, hung up like carcasses of meat. Those were his words.


*(4) Samuel W. Mitcham, /Hitler's Field Marshals/ (1988) *

Field Marshal Witzleben freely admitted his part in the assassination 
attempt. He and the others were found guilty the next day and 
sentenced to hang that afternoon. Hitler had ordered that they be hung 
like cattle. I want to see them hanging like carcasses in a 
slaughterhouse! he commanded. The entire event was filmed by the 
Reich Film Corporation. Witzleben was first. Despite his poor showing 
at the trial, Witzleben met his death with courage and with as much 
dignity as was possible under the circumstances. A thin wire noose was 
placed around his neck, and the other end was secured to a meat hook. 
The executioner and his assistant then picked up the 
sixty-four-year-old soldier and dropped him so that his entire weight 
fell on his neck. They then pulled off his trousers so that he hung 
naked and twisted in agony as he slowly strangled. It took him almost 
five minutes to die, but he never once cried out. The other seven 
condemned men were executed in the same manner within an hour. They 
were followed over the next eight months by hundreds of others.

This quote really nails it, in my opinion. The angrier the former 
cultists are at the person they had formerly placed up on a pedestal, 
the angrier they are at *themselves* for being so stupid as to put 
them up there in the first place. They're still smarting from shoving

 hanged, hung up like carcasses of meat. Those were his words. 
  (4) Samuel W. Mitcham, Hitler's Field Marshals (1988) 
  
  Field Marshal Witzleben freely admitted his part in the assassination 
 attempt. He and the others were found guilty the next day and sentenced 
 to hang that afternoon. Hitler had ordered that they be hung like 
 cattle. I want to see them hanging like carcasses in a slaughterhouse! 
 he commanded. The entire event was filmed by the Reich Film Corporation. 
 Witzleben was first. Despite his poor showing at the trial, Witzleben 
 met his death with courage and with as much dignity as was possible 
 under the circumstances. A thin wire noose was placed around his neck, 
 and the other end was secured to a meat hook. The executioner and his 
 assistant then picked up the sixty-four-year-old soldier and dropped him 
 so that his entire weight fell on his neck. They then pulled off his 
 trousers so that he hung naked and twisted in agony as he slowly 
 strangled. It took him almost five minutes to die, but he never once 
 cried out. The other seven condemned men were executed in the same 
 manner within an hour. They were followed over the next eight months by 
 hundreds of others.

[FairfieldLife] Bron-Broen, season 2

2013-11-17 Thread TurquoiseB
Oh joy. Amongst all the remakes, we of the pirate persuasion finally
have more of the original. There are now at least *two* remakes, the
execrable US version set on the US-Mexico border, and now the
equally-forgettable French version called The Tunnel, with Clemence
Poesy trying to fill the acting shoes of Sofia Helin as The Gorgeous
Homicide Detective With Aspergers. I *told* you that the original was
one of the best TV series of last year; how you can really tell in
these matters is how many people rush to rip off the idea.

But ya just can't outdo the original crime duo -- Sofia Helin as Saga
Noren and Kim Brodnia as her partner-in-solving-crime Martin Rhode. It's
a year later, screen-time, and the two haven't spoken or seen each other
in all this time. And when they do, it's magic again.

Martin is still traumatized by the events of last season, and by the
fact that everyone he interacts with treats him as if he's permanently
damaged by them. Saga is still traumatized by the fact that she can't be
traumatized by *anything*, because she can't *feel* anything. And she
becomes the only person Martin can stand to be around, because she
treats him as she always has, as someone who barely registers on her
emotional radar screen. Her distance is really the closeness he's needed
so badly.

It's the *subtlety* that makes the original so much better than its
clones. I simply can't wait to see where they take this season
together...

 Barry is terrified of:
 1) those he perceives as imaginary mean girls (left over from his childhood 
exclusion from being allowed to play dress up and Barbies with them. This has 
been verified by his post this morning about Ken and Barbie.)
 2) the possibility that he might possess an ego because this might mean he

It's starting to look like a few informants will have to be booted off 
the FFL discussion group for revealing private information to the group. 
Maybe its time to review a few of the netiquette protocols:


1. Respect other people's privacy.
2. Do not reveal private information without the owner's specific 
written consent.

3. Do not send spam about your personal business or employment.
5. DO NOT send email at night.

Notes: No Late Night Email It good netiquette to send email messages 
during the day and early evening. Sending email messages late at night 
can lower the credibility of the message because people who stay up late

girls in school uniforms erotic is weird, and the American fascination 
for Twilight vampires (even turning them into best-selling housewife 
porn) is even weirder. But the Chinese writing gay Sherlock Holmes 
porn is just too weird, even for me.


Maybe I'll try to read about something safer, like fashion. Women's 
fashion can get weird, but men's fashion is usually safely boring. Uh 
oh.

 I'm using an acronym for a reason, to clearly post anonymously. You may 
recognize my energy, my writing style but you are not supposed to reveal my 
first name or any other details.
 

 But this dumb retarded motherfucker emptybill seems to have lot of trouble 
understanding it. He spouts and spews scriptures but lacks the normal maturity 
and intelligence of an adult and I have always given him a free pass in the 
past since I understand his disability. He thinks he can indulge in dishonesty 
like referring me as a troll, telling me that one cannot discuss Amma here, 
that I have been kicked off other forums and some other retarded bullshit.

[FairfieldLife] Fairfieldlife Guidelines

2013-11-17 Thread Richard J. Williams

Guidelines File - Updated 11/17/2013

1) Posts by users of the site are not edited or scrutinized before 
appearing online.
2) The forum moderators do not purport to vouch for the authenticity or 
veracity of any statements within the forum.
3) All parties who feel aggrieved by any statements within the forum 
have free opportunities to provide a rebuttal to those statements within 
the forum.
4) Parties who feel aggrieved by statements within the forum are also 
free to contact the moderators directly and provide justification as to 
why they believe content to be libelous. If circumstances warrant, steps 
will be taken to removing the offending material expeditiously.


--

Fairfield Life used to average 75-150 posts a day - 300+ on peak days - 
and the guidelines included steps on how to deal with the volume. But 
this volume was due largely to indiscriminate posting by a few members. 
We now have a policy that limits all members to 50 posts a week. Most 
participants feel this policy has greatly enhanced the quality of the 
forum. A Post Count message is posted every evening, listing members' 
names (or aliases) and the number of messages they've posted that week. 
Those who exceed their weekly quota will be prohibited from posting for 
a week. The new week starts each Friday at 7pm Iowa time, or 00:00 UTC 
(Coordinated Universal Time). UTC is the same as Greenwich Mean Time 
during winter.


--

You can also read FFL posts at 
http://www.mail-archive.com/fairfieldlife@yahoogroups.com/. Some say 
this is faster than the Yahoo groups interface, and prefer it because it 
allows sorting by thread and has a better search function. Additional 
images are archived at http://alex.natel.net/ffl/images/.


--

1) This group has long maintained a thoughtful and considerate tone. 
*Please refrain from personal attacks, insults and excessive venting or 
you will be asked to leave the group.* Speak the truth that is sweet 
is a worthy aspiration. If angry, take some time to gain composure 
before writing or pushing the send button.


2) Edit your posts and make them as concise and non-repetitive as possible.

3) Please snip - be highly selective in quoting a message to which you 
are responding, deleting all but the most relevant portions of the prior 
posts. This makes the daily digest easier to read for those who 
subscribe to it. Also, if the topic of a thread changes, please change 
the subject header.


4) Try to make clear to the reader if you are writing from the 
perspective of personal experience, from information gained from 
teachers or books, from your own thoughts, reasoning, logic or 
conjecture. Please cite sources where relevant.


5) Reference prior posts by their archive number whenever possible.

6) Anonymous posts are permitted, using an account you create.

7) FFL is a newsgroup public forum. FFL can be openly read from the 
web.  Posting privileges are through membership only. Material published 
to FFL is not privileged or protected by law. Material published to FFL 
might be quoted and used elsewhere. The publicly published content 
includes any information in the message headers, which may include the 
poster's IP address. If you don't want your IP address to be made 
public, you are solely responsible for keeping that information private. 
That can be accomplished by configuring your FFL membership with the 
Hide my email and IP address from the group moderators option, using a 
proxy, using an email provider that does not reveal originating IP, etc.


8) Posting of adult material, either text or photos, or links to such 
materials, is prohibited. Violation of this guideline may result in 
expulsion from the group.


9) Make cross-posts from other sites only as they are relevant to this 
group. If you think another site has great value, write one post saying 
so, then let others join or go to that site on their own, at their 
discretion.


10) Only post links to other sites that are relevant references to the 
specific discussion at hand.


11) While friendly exchange between friends is natural, try to pass on 
personal messages via personal e-mail, refraining where possible from 
sending personal messages to the whole list.


12) Feel to invite your friends to join FFL, and to use the site's 
Promote feature on your websites. The broader the personal network, the 
greater the value to all. Friends may now access the posts of FFL 
directly off the home page without having to join the list.


13) Please don't post commercial announcements in the main message area. 
Folders have been set up in the Database, Links and Files sections for 
listing books, CDs, DVDs and other items for trade, a Fairfield ride 
board, local events, hiring/looking for work announcements, informative 
articles, useful links, etc. Also check http://fairfieldtoday.com/.


14) Political discussions are allowed. However, be kind and respectful 
of others' viewpoints.

completely different face.
 

 That's all I'll say for now, except to note that the quality in people I value 
most highly is authenticity, and the quality I most despise is lack of same. An 
inauthentic pose of virtue, as far as I'm concerned, is far more reprehensible

being a troll to call someone a mime?





On Sunday, November 17, 2013 9:14 AM, Richard Williams pundits...@gmail.com 
wrote:
 
  
Analysis from Wikipedia - conflict resolution:

Responding to a troll inevitably drives discussion off-topic, to the
dismay of bystanders, and supplies the troll with the craved attention.

When troll hunters pounce on the trolls, ignorers reply with: YHBT.
YHL. HAND., which translated means You have been trolled. You have
lost. Have a nice day.

However, since troll hunters (like trolls) are often conflict-seekers
themselves, the loss usually is not on the part of the troll-hunter;
rather, the losers are the other forum-users who would have preferred
that the conflict not emerge at all.

Literature on conflict resolution suggests that labeling participants
in Internet discussions as trolls can perpetuate the unwanted
behaviors. A person rejected by a social group may assume an
antagonistic role toward it, and seek to further annoy or anger members
of the group. 

The troll label, often a sign of social rejection, may therefore actually 
perpetuate trolling.

Better results normally ensue when users take the moderator role and
describe more constructive behaviors in a non-judgmental,
non-confrontational way.

Trolls are excited by troll hunters and frustrated by the ignorers, and
neither of these emotions produce positive results for the forum.


Engaging trolls results in flame wars. 

Trolls frustrated by the ignore strategy may leave the forum (and 
either troll elsewhere, or become constructive users) or may 
become progressively more inflammatory until they get a response.

Definition

A person who sends duplicitous messages to get angry responses.

Note: The term 'Internet Troll' is frequently abused to slander
opponents in heated debates and is frequently misapplied by those
who are ignorant of Internet etiquette.

Description

Trolls are sometimes caricatured as socially inept. This is often due
to the fundamental attribution error, as it is impossible to know the
real traits of an individual solely from their online discourse.

Indeed, since intentional trolls are alleged to knowingly flout social
boundaries, it is difficult to typecast them as socially inept since
they have arguably proven adept at their goal.

Usage

Calling someone a troll makes assumptions about a writer's motives
that are impossible to determine. The term troll is highly subjective,
and some posts will look like trolling to some while seeming like
meaningful contributions to others.

The term is frequently used to discredit an opposing position in an
argument. This can amount to an ad hominem argument; a purported
troll of this nature may actually hold an insightful but controversial
position that is generating controversy precisely because it has
successfully challenged entrenched opinions.

adult life. Where is Dr. Pete when we need him?

'Authfriend' and 'Empty' are constantly calling people trolls.
  Empty on several occasions claimed what I was posting about his
  cult was bullshit - go figure.  These two are famous all over
  the internet for being newsgroup bullies. It's about time someone
  took them down a peg or two and told them the truth about their
  online flame tactics. Go figure.

And, while you're at it, tell the 'TurquoiseB' and the 'Wolf

  live or where you were born is just being prejudice. Maybe they
  are just JELLOS - I don't know. One thing is fer sure - they are
  VERY interested in the comings and goings of some cult leaders.

Newbies and lurkers, FYI, these are not the FFL Guidelines.

 Guidelines File - Updated 11/17/2013
 
 1) Posts by users of the site are not edited or scrutinized before appearing 
online.
 2) The forum moderators do not purport to vouch for the authenticity or 
veracity of any statements within the forum.
 3) All parties who feel aggrieved by any statements within the forum have free 
opportunities to provide a rebuttal to those statements within the forum.
 4) Parties who feel aggrieved by statements within the forum are also free to 
contact the moderators directly and provide justification as to why they 
believe content to be libelous. If circumstances warrant, steps will be taken 
to removing the offending material expeditiously.

 Fairfield Life used to average 75-150 posts a day - 300+ on peak days - and 
the guidelines included steps on how to deal with the volume. But this volume 
was due largely to indiscriminate posting by a few members. We now have a 
policy that limits all members to 50 posts a week. Most participants feel this 
policy has greatly enhanced the quality of the forum. A Post Count message is 
posted every evening, listing members' names (or aliases) and the number of 
messages they've posted that week. Those who exceed their weekly quota will be 
prohibited from posting for a week. The new week starts each Friday at 7pm Iowa 
time, or 00:00 UTC (Coordinated Universal Time). UTC is the same as Greenwich 
Mean Time during winter.

 You can also read FFL posts at

 1) This group has long maintained a thoughtful and considerate tone. Please 
refrain from personal attacks, insults and excessive venting or you will be 
asked to leave the group. Speak the truth that is sweet is a worthy 
aspiration. If angry, take some time to gain composure before writing or 
pushing the send button.
 
 2) Edit your posts and make them as concise and non-repetitive as possible. 
 
 3) Please snip - be highly selective in quoting a message to which you are 
responding, deleting all but the most relevant portions of the prior posts. 
This makes the daily digest easier to read for those who subscribe to it. Also, 
if the topic of a thread changes, please change the subject header. 
 
 4) Try to make clear to the reader if you are writing from the perspective of 
personal experience, from information gained from teachers or books, from your 
own thoughts, reasoning, logic or conjecture. Please cite sources where 
relevant.
 
 5) Reference prior posts by their archive number whenever possible. 
 
 6) Anonymous posts are permitted, using an account you create.
 
 7) FFL is a newsgroup public forum. FFL can be openly read from the web.  
Posting privileges are through membership only. Material published to FFL is 
not privileged or protected by law. Material published to FFL might be quoted 
and used elsewhere. The publicly published content includes any information in 
the message headers, which may include the poster's IP address. If you don't 
want your IP address to be made public, you are solely responsible for keeping 
that information private. That can be accomplished by configuring your FFL 
membership with the Hide my email and IP address from the group moderators 
option, using a proxy, using an email provider that does not reveal originating 
IP, etc. 
 
 8) Posting of adult material, either text or photos, or links to such 
materials, is prohibited. Violation of this guideline may result in expulsion 
from the group.
 
 9) Make cross-posts from other sites only as they are relevant to this group. 
If you think another site has great value, write one post saying so, then let 
others join or go to that site on their own, at their discretion.
 
 10) Only post links to other sites that are relevant references to the 
specific discussion at hand. 
 
 11) While friendly exchange between friends is natural, try to pass on 
personal messages via personal e-mail, refraining where possible from sending 
personal messages to the whole list. 
 
 12) Feel to invite your friends to join FFL, and to use the site's Promote

   Let me just put it this way, Share. I think your actual motivations for the

of your behavior on FFL is carefully tailored to attempt to make people think

completely different face.
 

 That's all I'll say for now, except to note that the quality in people I value 
most highly is authenticity, and the quality I most despise is lack of same. An 
inauthentic pose of virtue, as far as I'm concerned, is far more reprehensible 
than an authentic, let-it-all-hang-out display of vice.

It's distributed by IFC so hard to say.  If they get independent films 
the ONE copy they get might prove popular.  I read the other day that 
many of the independent film distributors are doing only a run of 2000 
DVDs where they used to do 10,.  Otherwise you can rent it from 
Amazon or VUDU or iTunes.  In fact I watched the trailer looking for new 
releases on Amazon but happened to note Netflix had added it and I was 
able to watch it in 1080p with Chromecast.  It was a good film to see in 
1080p because the bright sunlit landscapes of the island were a good 
test for that resolution.  It might eventually show up on Hulu.

feel is best for me. It is just that sometimes your choice of who you choose to 
cozy up with is creepy and since Barry has stated in no uncertain terms that he 
finds you insipid and stupid I simply find it astounding that you continue to 
choose to curry favour with him. It's as simple as that. He clearly finds you 
not worth knowing and yet you continue to greet him like some unsuspecting 
puppy dog.

Ann, just because I experience and express appreciation more than Judy does, 
that doesn't make it fawning, except from her prejudiced and or limited 
perspective.

Because it's all relative, what Judy calls pandering is what other people would 
call being civil. She'd probably accuse Mona Lisa of pandering to Da Vinci!

 turq, between this and Carde's Wagner, I'm gonna have a great program

 BTW, recently saw the zombie episode of Castle, Undead Again. Nice
Caskett moment in that episode too. Am now into Season 5, the happy
season imho. Glad the writers let Beckett be mostly happy and
affectionate and still zapping Castle as needed with the dour putdowns.
Their chemistry is better than ever, as is the writing.

If you like snappy dialog, you really should see Joss Whedon's Much Ado
About Nothing. Some of the wittiest and most barbed interplay between
the sexes since Bruce Willis and Cybil Shepherd in Moonlighting, and
written almost 400 years earlier.  :-)

  Oh God, turq, this has got to be one of the funniest pieces you've
ever written. Well, since I've been here anyway. Those last bits about
this or that topic probably not harboring anything too
weird...hilarious. And even though the reader knows what's gonna happen,
it's still funny anyway. Thanks too for that post about the Minions.
Sweet to think how just about anything can light up the connection
between people in a cafe. Oh yeah, the pedestal piece...thought
provoking. You're definitely on a roll. Interesting how the full moon
brings out different stuff in different posters ha ha. Ah

 That's great Judy. But parents aren't the only sources of stress and trauma

P.S.: You're quite right about my childhood, albeit not in the way you hope. I 
had a happy, stress-free childhood with two parents who loved me deeply and 
steadfastly. They passed on their own devotion to authenticity and loathing of 
phoniness to me.

(snicker) Thanks for proving my point, Share. You're so dependable in that 
regard.

Judy, imo your self righteousness with regards to authenticity is itself 
proof of over compensation. Your alleged devotion to authenticity and your 
opinions of me also imo are both results of your childhood. And that's all 
I'm going to say.

Let me just put it this way, Share. I think your actual motivations for the 
way you respond to people are quite different from what you claim. I think 
most of your behavior on FFL is carefully tailored to attempt to make 
people think highly of you. The problem is that when your control slips, 
you show a completely different face.


That's all I'll say for now, except to note that the quality in people I 
value most highly is authenticity, and the quality I most despise is lack 
of same. An inauthentic pose of virtue, as far as I'm concerned, is far 
more reprehensible than an authentic, let-it-all-hang-out display of vice.

Judy, a way more interesting question imho is why do you even care what I 
think turq thinks. Should I even feed your strange interest by answering 
you? What the heck: I doubt turq thinks about me much. Probably he hasn't 
changed his mind. But so what? See, I think in your mind that means I 
should be mean to him and not say thanks for a post I like, etc. But for me 
it's important to tell people when I like their posts. It's also important 
for me to disagree with people who are ganging up on someone. I'm sure 
there's a karmic reason but I don't need to figure it out for now. It feels 
right when I do both and that's why I do them.

Xeno, if it's an illusion then I think laughter is a good response. Also I 
think we go through a phase of neti neti, not this, not this. And then we go 
through a phase of: and this too, and this too. I have glimpses of both and 
they each have their own kind of beauty.

Suppose it is illusion? And if the journey has an end, what would that be? On 
such a journey I suspect most of us imagine we are acquiring something, but 
maybe it is the reverse, we lose . . . everything.
