Peer Messages from the "tolerant" Left?

By jdclyde ·
We hear all the time from the loonie left about the intolerant religious right. It has been almost a battle cry for at least the last decade.

Just how "tolerant" are these same loonie lefties with anything that they don't agree with? Here is an example from FAKE James (JamesG ) from Albuquerque, NM, not the REAL one (JamesRL) up in Canada.

One of your fellow TechRepublic members has sent you a private message:

From: JamesG@...
Subject: abortion
Typical Repugnant fool - keep government out of our lives! Freedom! Wait, you want to make a mdeical decision I don't agree with??? You can't have an abortion!! I don't approve!!
Well, keep your right wing fascist nose out of my wifes panty hose, you f@@k.

Thanks fake James. You have confirmed everything I had thought about you.

For the casual reader, you may be asking "what the H E double L is he going off on?"

I have to ASSuME that this is in regards to a recent discussion with "ABSOLUTELY". I was comparing the contradictions for both Dems and Reps, and he made the contention that Abortions are NOT "birthcontrol".

(my post, his reply, then my reply.)

My counter was:
"Abortion for non-life threatening reasons, or the rape/incest IS birthcontrol because that is the only function being performed. Controlling birth."

At no point did I discuss making this illegal or preventing FAKE James from taking his wife for as many abortions as his sick little heart wants. I only made the call of being HONEST enough to call it what it is. If you are not willing to be honest about this FAKE James, so be it. Maybe you can get frequent flier miles if you do it enough and pay for it with your credit card?

Abortions should be safe, legal, and rare is the stance I have always taken. Don't worry FAKE James, I will stay out of your wifes panies.

(what are some people thinking?)

NOTE: see how nice I was to NOT post his email address, as he has peer messages turned off? Of course, that doesn't stop him from peering others, OR putting his comments in the dicussion where they originate from? No, lets make it a personal attack instead? Nice and tolerant of you FAKE JamesG. Real nice. By the way, to you eat with that mouth?

Fake James has gone off the deep end

Anyone else reading the "Tyranny" discussion? Just check out his latest spree.

He has fallen off the deep end and it is a sad thing to see. Just hope it wasn't this discussion that pushed him over the edge...... I would almost feel guilty..

I lie. It wouldn't bother me one bit.

Really taken a shine to MAX

Catching up on some of the other discussions, it seems Fake James has really taken a shine to Maxwell. He has been polite and thoughtful in all of his responses, making it hard to argue with his posts? Not in this life time! (I crack myself up!)

But he does look to be TRYING to sucking up to Neil! Got a fan club now Neil? :^O Although his ignorant, rude, and hateful posts seem in cold contrast to your thoughfully sarcastic posts. Not a good fit.

Sarcastic? Moi?

Ironic - oh yes! But sarcastic? Nearly never. Sarcasm is irony with intent to wound and, seriously, I like you all too much to be anything other than a bit scathing!

now Neil,

you know very well that ripping someone apart with sarcasm is one of life's little joys, quit denying it. ]:)

I like you too, Neil.

We might argue over our favorite Adult beverages,
Tastes great, More fattening...

Do I hold you in contempt, no.

Do I think you are occasionally bang on, Yep.

Are you ever wrong. Yes sir.

Would I burn down your house? Never. You have books there...

...but for the most part, I'm just ignoring him. I did, however, leave him my "favorite link". That still cracks me up.

I follow it.

I know I do.

A related story:

Not too long ago, a guy in the office was being a real PITA (Pain In The ....) to some other people, and I thought he was being kinda' out of line. I wasn't really involved, on way or the other, except just being aware of what was going on. His office is actually a cubicle in what we call our "bull pen" area, the typical cubicle farm with lots of people and very little or no privacy, especially when volumes on radios or speakers are turned up, making phone calls, and the like.

Well, one morning, I made sure, without anyone noticing me, that his speakers were turned up pretty loud. And what would you know, that very morning he received an email from some unknown sender, some name he didn't know, from some Yahoo email account. (Gee, I wonder who sent that email?) Of course, the email had a link.

I made sure I was hanging out in the area that morning when he got into the office, and as we all know, the first thing everybody always does is download their email, right? Everybody in the area heard that all too familiar jingle. I was laughing so hard that I almost ..... well, we don't have to go there, but it was hard to remain unnoticed. But you should have seen all the heads pop up out of the cubicles, just like you might see in a Dilbert cartoon. Needless to say, all eyes and ears tuned into his cubicle.

You gotta' love it. A practical joke played on somebody, and he had (has) absolutely no idea who did it, especially when it was the guy he might least suspect.

Save that link, Neil. It's a lot of fun.

(I always tell these people to never open links in emails sent by unknown people. They just never listen!)

point of interest

I don't suppose you remember what the email said that got him interested in the link?

It really DOES amaze me how people think they HAVE to follow EVERY link AND open EVERY attachment.

My question on spam mail. How exactly did I get on the "limp list"? Viagra and such? Not yet! ;\

Yes - I do remember

by maxwell edison In reply to point of interest

The subject line of the email read as though it was sent from an individual associated with a trade organization that operates within our industry (our "business" industry, not the I.T. industry). Something like ABC Association is coming to AnyTown.

The email was an invitation to attend a bogus trade conference that was scheduled for our area, free of charge, including a free lunch.

Any excuse to get out of the office, such as a day long trade conference -- AND a free lunch to boot -- is enough to make anyone click on the link, a tinyURL link (which this one was) or otherwise.

He took the bait -- hook, line and sinker. He really IS an i.........
