Ok I admit that was mean, I’m sorry man.

Edit:  Very plausible article.(good read!)

I see over at Bikkyboy’s safe space, Jules, that you have concerns about being called a cunt.

But why?

Above, you seem to have learned everything you’ll need to know to avoid it.

Anyone can avoid being called that, so where’s the problem?

Personally I think speech codes only serve the little cunts that I describe in my bullying analysis. It empowers them to continue their subtle bullying putdown campaigns and conversation killing superiority dances and all their other cuntisms.

Have you raised children, Jon?

I am seriously tired of you.

Just so we’re clear, what I am offering is that we both behave as though we don’t know anyone named Jon or William. We don’t emote to the other’s posts because that would indicate knowledge of the other’s existence. We don’t quote the other or even mention the other at OL.

Or, all bets are off.

Show your decision by breaking a condition, or don’t.

I may not be able to post for a few days, anyway, but,

Starting now, I am following the conditions.

What we know about the alleged election fraud plot in North Carolina, by Dylan Scott:

Quote

The Ninth District race between Mark Harris and Dan McCready is still stalled over ballot tampering allegations.

In North Carolina, allegations suggesting ballot tampering have led the state elections board to delay certifying the results of one House election. State officials are now issuing subpoenas and gathering evidence for a public hearing to be held later this month. It’s safe to say something is amiss.

But what exactly happened in North Carolina’s Ninth Congressional District hasn’t fully been revealed. Instead, we have an incomplete tapestry of sworn affidavits and press reports that suggest, but don’t definitively prove, a coordinated effort to influence one of 2018’s closest House elections.

Republican Mark Harris beat Democrat Dan McCready by less than 1,000 votes on Election Day. But those results are tainted by explosive allegations involving a local political operative who was working for the Harris campaign and a scheme to collect and possibly tamper with absentee ballots.

There is an obvious irony in a Republican campaign being tarnished by allegations of election fraud after the GOP spent last month peddling unsubstantiated claims of voter fraud in Florida and Arizona. But it’s important to remember there is still a lot we don’t know yet about the situation in North Carolina. The authorities haven’t officially accused anybody of any specific wrongdoing yet.

[...]

It’s important to remember two things about absentee ballots in North Carolina: Anybody can request one, and, at the end of every day before the election, state officials publish a file of which voters requested an absentee ballot by mail and whether they have returned it to be counted.

A campaign could wake up every morning and check that file to know how many registered Republican, Democratic, and unaffiliated voters had requested and returned a mail-in ballot.

“From a mechanics point of view, this is a gold mine of information for candidates and their campaign,” Michael Bitzer, who follows North Carolina politics at Catawba College, told me.

With that in mind, here is what we know so far about the alleged ballot tampering scheme in the North Carolina Ninth Congressional District:

  • Two counties in the district, Bladen and Robeson, had an unusually high number of absentee ballots that were requested but not returned for the 2018 election.
  • Several voters in those counties said in sworn affidavits that an unidentified woman came to their house and collected their absentee ballots. One voter said the woman promised to finish filling out the incomplete ballot for them. Another voter said the ballot was not signed or sealed when the woman took it.
  • In an interview with WSOC, the voter who said she’d selected her choices for only two offices on the ballot before handing it away identified Lisa Britt as the woman who collected her mail-in ballot.
  • Britt is the stepdaughter of Leslie McCrae Dowless Jr., a political contractor in the area, BuzzFeed News reported.
  • Dowless was paid by the Harris campaign and was doing absentee work specifically, according to the Charlotte Observer and other affidavits sent to the state elections board. He was previously caught up in allegations regarding absentee ballots in 2016. The Harris campaign still owes $34,000 for absentee ballot work it hired outside contractors for, the New York Times reported.
  • Britt and another woman related to Dowless, Jessica Dowless, told BuzzFeed News they were working for Dowless at an office during the campaign. They described counting the number of Democrats and Republicans who had voted. Absentee ballots were collected and brought to the offices. Dowless was paying his workers cash, even buying one person a car, and some of the staff were using drugs while on the job, per BuzzFeed News’s reporting.
  • Britt and Jessica Dowless were two people who witnessed an unusually high number of absentee ballots that were submitted in Bladen County, according to Judd Legum at Popular Information. Jessica said she was asked to witness ballots that had been brought back to Dowless’s offices.

That is a lot of smoke, and you can see the contours of the scheme: People working to support the Republican campaign were collecting absentee ballots en masse and serving as witnesses for them.

But we don’t know a few critical pieces of information:

[...]

"Ballot tampering" is a useful term.

I see, Billyboy, that you closed your Q poll and discussion at your safe space.

I'm glad I didn’t post there and I understand why Ellen (and probably others besides us) choose not to post at your blog.

People might have more to say, but you’ve muzzled them because you didn’t like how your shitty blog post was going.

Any time you want to ask a question or get a clarification or have a discussion about the Q phenomenon, Billyboy, just let me know. I’d be delighted to find out you are ready for an adult discussion and finished with the constant stupid sass and snark.

William copied the above post to his blog entry "In the matter of Q" - link.

He included comment about an altercation between him and me which occurred a number of years ago.

Quote

I made a bad interpersonal error of judgement when [Ellen and I] were discussing Stephen Hawking, coming close to one-half a Mamishian in tone and accusatory insinuations. I regretted it, apologized for it, and accept that she will not likely ever enter into discussion with me on any substantive issue going forward. It's what happens when one gets carried along by Assholism and does not foresee the damage one can do to human relationships

My not engaging in substantive discussion with William hasn't a thing to do with that years-ago incident.  Instead, it's because I haven't the time for or interest in attempting to dialogue with him.

Second, his mea culpa concerns what he said.  I don't care about, and I've forgotten the details of what he said.  Something about my being narrow-spirited.  Or something similar.

What I care about - and will never fully trust him again because of - is what he did.

He sent me a PM.  (He was heavily into PMing.  I don't know if he still is.)  Then he quoted in a public post from my reply.  Then he refused to give me permission to quote what he'd said that I was replying to.  That pissed me off - and left a residue of caution.  Justified caution, looks like, considering that he's told his remembrance of our brouhaha in a post on his blog, where I've said I don't post, instead of on the main board, where I do post.

When was this, what year? I'd like to dig it up and take the heat for being an asshole.

Now, I should note for interested readers that you almost sort of answered a similar question backchannel, in that you referred to some gossip without further elaboration. [....]

That seriously misrepresents what was said backchannel.

Do I have your permission to post your part of the exchange?

No, Ellen, you don't. I don't mean to be a jerk, I just don't get it -- your contention that we should hesitate before accepting the idea that Hawking co-authored The Grand Design with Leonard Mlodinow.

Here is what I wrote on that point backchannel. . .

The advanced epistemological stuff makes my eyes glaze (e.g., anything like 'how do we know we know what we think we know he knows he knows'), and I don't think that was what you are getting at. For me, it's a point of curiosity -- IF you think he doesn't have control over what goes out in his name, IF . . . I simply wonder how you came to suspect he doesn't.

Now you have permission to let us know, should you choose to do so, how you got to this bizarre place . . . the answer you gave backstage was pretty feeble.

I said no. Ellen was mostly-right (except for the "he quoted" bit), and I was entirely wrong to point to and describe/paraphrase something off-stage that was not made examinable. It's an asshole move.

In the interest of comity,  I won't re-litigate any of the discussion in re the Mlodinow-Hawking book. That dispute in the thread above was re-assembled on request and moved here:

I rescind my 'No,' but I doubt anyone would care to see our private correspondence, either from OL 'backstage' or via email exchanges (in any case, the forum's mailbox system does not allow for searches beyond a one year limit). My appreciation of Ellen is unchanged, despite our disputes. How to disagree without being an jerk/asshole was not as important to me then as it is now.

How many have you raped, cunt?

How many times have you been raped is the real question.  You should probably get checked for syphilis as it has obviously started rotting your brain.

I already did.  When are you going to tell us your childhood adventures in the toolshed with your many abusers.  Or how about the many years of therapy you went through?  Or or or.. how much ammo you have stored up just waiting for the next Democrat convention? 😈

Poor?

Oh, come on, Jules.

No one gets bullied just for being poor. You were a total cunt then, just like now, is my guess.

What did they call you? What names? That should help zero in on it. What names did they call you?

I think it’s right there in the “Interests” of your bio:

”Attempting to not piss everyone off (mostly failing at that.”

As a kid, I saw a lot of you shitty little low-lifes get smacked. Low IQ twats who couldn’t keep their mouths shut and whined about being bullied when they finally got savaged.

”Poor” my ass, twat.
