Sorry, I'm back

#1  Postby chairman bill » Mar 22, 2020 4:59 pm

Apologies all, but having been away for quite some time, and having found so much fuckwittery on Facebook groups, I thought "Fuck it, I need some semblance of rationality", and so here I am.

Feel free to tell me to piss off. I won't, but you should feel free to tell me to do so.

We've been hit with several examples of fucktwittery here on RS too, lately. Welcome back. :cheers:

Gday mate - nice to see you.

I'll tell you to piss off just to make you feel at home! :cheers:

But yeah, unfortunately the numbers aren't working out well on RS. In the past, the ratio was in favour of sense and rationality, but it's unfortunately reversed, and there's a veritable tsunami of idiocy here too. And none of them are Creationists! :smoke:

Well, piss off and stay. The rumors are true. Rational discourse is flagging ‘round these parts, lately.

Sharpen your edged weapons and wade in.

So no respite from the usual dumbfuckery? Oh well. I'll just have to get stuck in then.

So you're all stuck at home in self isolation and bored so you decided to drop in?

Piss off, Bill.

Well, I spend most of my time at home anyway, what with being a poor retiree... but I must admit it's been worse since they made the lockdown and I can't go out for coffee or a beer anymore.

Thanks, all. Now, could someone point me towards the rampant dumbfuckery, quarterwittery and general idiocy (I'm assuming some specific threads)?
