    Anyone else come to the conclusion that solitary man is a Russian troll, or more likely a Russian bot? Posts are either the most ridiculously divisive memes or inane "patriotic music". It never responds to queries. It was even given a name that tried to sound cool, like Han solo, but came up with solitary man. Definitely one of the older bots due to the long term history, but probably never updated because we are such a small board. So we have an old sad poorly programmed bot. I kind of feel bad for it. A sad little old bot forgotten about by it's creators. Can we just put it out of it's misery?

    Oh fuck this so much.

    My grandfather stood down unionbusters back in the day. (These pictures are representative, not ones they were in.)

    My mother marched against the Vietnam War

    And I marched in the Women March here in Alaska.

    The reasons and the sentiment have changed slightly but the principles are basically the same.
    You might agree with some or none of these but they are all Americans standing up for what they believe and what they are asking for has nothing to do with "free stuff".

    Not passing a Turing test like that. So if you're not a bot then why do you post Russian generated memes that are designed to divide Americans and cause fighting amongst ourselves? Because most of the stuff you post is horseshit that's easily disproven if you take 30 freaking seconds or a few logical thoughts? Like that ridiculous fake Brady campaign meme. So obviously fake. The logo doesn't even line up with the image. And people (like me) have posted questions to you or responses and you ignore them. This is a discussion board, bot.

    I don't agree much with @Solitary Man, but I always appreciate the gadfly tradition. It is nice to occasionally see some things that keeps this board from continuing to tilt to the left until it capsizes.

    The Russians?? The CIA spent decades messing with the politics of sovereign countries all over the world. I don't think that is right, but, why should we expect anything different from the Russians.

    I'm working on a column about the shit the Russian pulled with our social media.
    Pretty sure Solitary isn't a bot.
    I do like his Operatic Metal music posts.
    Like many of us on both sides he has been suckered by a very slick job they have done to split this country at its very base.
    And doing the, well the CIA did some horrendous shit so we kinda deserve it, doesn't change the fact that we are seriously boned if we don't fix what they have broken.
    Those of us who hate what the CIA did in the past want to fix it and stop it from happening in the future.
    There is no way I'm going to accept the idea that the Russians get to fuck with us as payback or that it is to be 'expected'.
    They (and by that I mean Putin et. al.) suborned our election and have been working to destroy democracy throughout the world.
    They need to be stopped.

    The Russians acting like a bully 'great power' is to be expected. We do it. The Brits used to do it. Maybe still do. The Chinese are probably doing it. Israeli Intelligence does its best to mess with the Arab states. What is not to be expected is that we, through neglect or incompetence, let them get away with it. Is Trump really a Russian stooge, or was he just played for one by them?

    I agree that Solitary Man isn't a bot. He sometimes likes my music posts. No bot could be programmed to like my bizarre tastes in music.

    1. No one is a bot - the mods are on top of it. ;)
    2. One of the best discussions in this thread in awhile

    ** do I need to make a “kudos” button??

    Oh yeah...
    3. I agree with what Lindy and Redravin just said (or is that redundant??)
    :)
     
  14. I am a ex-CIA and ex-KGB !. . . . . . or I am lying ?

    @Solitary Man, you have disguised yourself well but I think you were a radio announcer. Your disguise is good, but do you expect us to believe that someone could like both Neil Diamond and some of the Metal tunes that you post? You're not ex-CIA but rather CIAX. Not ex-KGB, but KGBX.

    Well, after a little research I managed to discover that CIAX is a French language radio station in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. KGBX is a radio station in Nix, Missouri. The travel distance between Windsor and Nix, following Interstates 94 and 55 is 784 miles. The square root of 784 is 28. Exactly 28. No decimal point or approximation need.

    Coincidence?

    I don't think so.
