Off conferencing

The regular posts will appear more or less at the regular times. Posting may be light or heavy. It will take longer for comments that get auto-moderated to be cleared.

For those who do fall foul of the auto-moderator feel free to pass the time complaining about censorship  and oppression – that always endears you to me.

  1. I’m terribly disappointed that this empty meaningless comment wasn’t censored.

    Is this like an open thread?
    If so, I would like to comment on the enthralling game of rugger I am watching. I’m not sure who is playing but I hope the black team in yellow can beat the Africans.

  3. Big Jim

    Wait. I found out who the teams are: South Africa was playing against the Oceana Lions. Given that SA is 85% black, I would liked to have seen more PoC playing for them, but the Lions made up for that.

    Safe Trip – stay away from Hillary’s mob!!

    Get the QandA thread right – don’t make me come over there.

    Don’t find censorship an issue here whereas over at Bolt’s blog certain words cause your post to be rejected. I discovered a couple recently. I’m keeping a list. ‘Wanker’ and ‘twat’ won’t get through.

    Posted here in the absence of an open forum (so far) for today. An interesting viewpoint on health care costs:
    http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2017/08/01/what-congress-should-know-about-my-cat-smokey.html
    As a former libertarian (now reformed) I won’t say I necessarily agree with this, but I do agree that there is a problem and that, as always, government is the cause of the problem.
    Why a reformed libertarian? Life experience has taught me that there are a lot of people out there who NEED an authority to balance the power in all the relationships – economic and social – they have in society. It is a simple fact of life and one that cannot be ignored. If it is ignored, if we blindly pursue a market rules and individual responsibility model, we create an underclass ripe for exploitation, and this will lead to social upheaval and, eventually, social decay as unprincipled people (ie, leftists) move in to fill the vacuum that free markets create. Take a look around you and you’ll see what I mean. The Left are exploiting angry malcontents and inciting them to violence.

    We have a list too.

    Its Sunday. Use the existing open forum – a new forum will open up on Monday.

    And the reasons you’re on Bolt’s blog are?

    Hope you have an ample supply of good scotch for the journey ahead 🙂

    Gbee, Catallaxy has rules too.

    They are: don’t disclose identities of the people who comment here, don’t use the ‘c’ bomb (or faggot or wanker though some do and may get away with that), disguise the ‘j’ word (keeps away the anti-Semites), and respect the private ownership of the blog.

    On the latter, Doomlord is ultra tolerant, but can when necessary smite swift and mightily.
    We self-regulate here. If I have gone wrong or forgotten anything in the above, others will tell me.

    Have a safe trip, Perfessor.

  13. Elizabeth (Lizzie) Beare

    Oh, Gbee, I forgot too that we don’t want to die of boredom around here.
    However, as my ancient history teacher used to say, one man’s Mead is another man’s Persian.
    So the scroll key is there to be used as individually required.

  14. herodotus

    I’ll get my comment about censorship and oppression in early.
    It’s all very well for the globe-trotting elites to swan off on another high-falutin’ conference while we here have to wear our scrolling fingers out zooming past the ultra-boring trash talk and meme laundering by Monty.
    Can the auto-moderator limit him to five comments per day?

  15. Nick

    I like Sinc’s new snarky side

    Jamie, Bill Posters may well be innocent but a new sign on the electrical junction box down the road states, “Bill Posters will be prosecuted.” So much for the presumption of innocence, poor fellow my country.

  17. IDefender of the faith

    I a man wondering whether university public servant on junket to the US will make the cut.

    one man’s Mead is another man’s Persian.

    Oooh, noice! (Sorry, I don’t do LOLs. They’re beneath me).

    Bill Posters is Innocent.

    Hah! Bill should front up to the Court and settle this matter once and for all.

    Heavy sigh. I have my Potential Greatness™ Day post all ready for 15 September, and he has fled the country.

    Re moderation and censorship, I certainly appreciate the trouble you, Professor, and others go to running this blog, particularly given how risky such endeavours are in today’s Australia – thanks for everything you’ve done for to our country Gough, Mal, Bob, Paul, John, Kev, Julia, Tony, Mal and Bill … oh, wait!

  22. Andrew

    Have a great trip. Remember if you get lost or need assistance, there is a charitable order known as AntiFA – think of them as like nuns with black outfits and dispensing aid.

    Conferencing…so in other words more taxpayer money wasted for welfate parasites in makework jobs can hobnob.

    Bon voyage Sinc. The cleanup crew is on speed dial. Two numbers – one for toxic waste/fluids (hazard) and the other for broken stuff (loader and skip).

    Mate’s rates.

    I’m off to China.

    ..and you think this is a coincidence??
