I will try to keep this brief.
I have been serving two masters on this one site, and that simply doesn’t work.
Without an “ignore” function, so that people can ignore certain other posters, it is basically impossible to have both civility and incivility on this site, and the “calls of the civil against the uncivil” are increasing daily.
This conflicts very fundamentally with my hatred of ALL censorship, and my desire to FIGHT the PROG-NAZI SCUM, the ChiComs, and their Soviet Democrat allies by creating a zone for free speech AGAINST THEIR WILL.
Some of us have a built-in or self-built “ignore” function. We can let people scream at us and not really care that much. Most do not have this ability, or else they lost it during all these years, living under PC and “the Nazis of Nicety”. Most of those who don’t have an ignore function, are not going to get one in their lifetime. This, despite the promises of both software supremacy and some dude who got it, almost 2000 years ago.
So I have to improvise.
Anyway, I have two goals:
- (1) continue to make The Q Tree a place of refuge for those who need CIVILITY as a refuge from cultural Marxist chaos and satanic influence
- (2) provide real free speech using the WordPress platform, in a place where nobody can be deplatformed for any reason of free speech, including incivility, vulgarity, prejudice, etc.
These two goals can only be accomplished by creating a second site, similar to The Q Tree, where there is absolutely no expectation of civility.
This site will be a work in progress, to be called The U Tree. U as in URANIUM. It will be nuclear, and it will be the place where a lot of PAIN is delivered to our enemies.
You can go there now if you want to see the plywood and plumbing, so to speak.
If you make a comment, I will let you in. This site won’t “go live” with real content for a few days, but if you want to get on the A list, you can comment on tonight’s open thread over there.
I *WILL* be looking for authors. There will be no need for moderators – even me – except to empty the bin.
I STRONGLY ADVISE THOSE *REQUIRING* CIVILITY TO NOT JOIN THIS NEW SITE.
In other words, don’t join if you have actual expectations of good behavior by anybody there. People will be FREE to speak as well as they wish, or as ill as they wish.
I expect it to be a little “chan-like”. It will be a BARROOM. There WILL BE BRAWLS. Lurking is probably best for many of you. Think of all the people you have asked me to ban, moderate, warn or discipline. This place is their new home. It will be like them. It may be like you, too, because people would be in some cases very surprised by who has been the target of moderation requests.
I have likened this approach to how I won my war with a cute but incredibly aggressive red squirrel that would do anything to chew its way into my garage and nest. I could have killed it rather easily, since I knew its moves very well, and could thwart it at every turn. However, I decided to win through peace. So I created her a beautiful little home, and now she lives in it, and guards my entire property from other red squirrels.
I am hoping this works again.
