I have more or less weaned myself off GD. The rampant idiocy, ignorance and flummery has been replaced by my hanging out at other websites and a new work schedule that allows more opportunity to come home and sleep and not need to wind down.

After all once you stop reading the "My wife/gf/bf done me wrong", "my neighbor on my land" "CA,LEOs/Wal-Mart is always wrong" threads, there really isn't much there.,

It's like watching a car wreck in slow motion. Being a LEO, I get a chuckle out of all the anti-LEO/ keyboard courage in GD.

Some of the stuff is still funny so I still go there for a good laugh.

I like it for the news/current events and subsequent discussions. Considering those who post here share similar interests, I find many of the links that get brought to GD interesting.

Agreed.
Having spent most my time on this forum looking up valuable information for specific weapons, needs, etc.... and reading worth while post's from the majority on here who are here for the same reason... it was quite the shocker discovering GD. Honestly the ignorance and stupidity is so rampant in GD that it almost casts a shadow over the entire forum once you know it exists. Then again, I guess you need something like GD to help keep the garbage from flowing into meaningful threads.

Left of Center & Middle left folks will always have issues with GD ( Even with the small victories they have with successful ratpacking of Right leaning individuials on Social & political issues that they flock to like moths to a flame )

I don't miss it either. Supposedly I was banned from GD and for what reason I have no idea. Looks like a good thing though.

Understand that the GD is the very worst of the ignorance of 14 year old children, and those who think like 14 year old children - fearful, ignorant, self-absorbed, rude, full of false pride ... and full of ant burners.

It's been horrible lately. I posted a news story about the NFL possibly going on strike next year. there were a couple people who just went irate, saying things like if you watch football you're a moron, you should be out contributing to society and expanding knowledge. Another guy said how is watching football going to help you learn how to feed yourself blah blah blah. Bunch of hypocrites, sitting around an internet forum talking about shit they will never use except to put holes in paper saying watching football for a few hours makes me a moron. They were acting like havingt a hobby or doing anything besides research or learning how to farm after the zombie invasion makes you a brain dead moron.

It is a microchasim of America (Divided into around 10-15 different groups that are militant and dismisive of the others viewpoints (No longer just Bacon & 1911 & Glock & Zombie weapon choice &Blade & KLR650 camps but much deeper seated hatred & animosity against Christians foisting their ways on poor innocent Athiests & Blind Joooo support for the new South Africa of Israel , & unfettered Homophobia & Bigoted Racism & good ol boy America first mentality that eats at left leaning posters to no end )

The paranoia (Like Rosie O'Donnel saying the Christians are more dangerous than Militant Islam kinda paranoia) and the tribalism of Pagan Wiccan Vegan Lesbian San Fran Psycho /Mount Shasta values leftists + Ignorance of damage from socialist policies implemented by Zero and Scared stoopid haters of America and it's past history & greatness ...

True, plus you have to remember we are online where nobody can get at anybody else. I would bet my right nut that 99.9999% of the big talkers here owuldn't say the shit they say in person. Bunch of tough guy keyboard commandos.

GD is the TMZ, All in the Family, and FOX News Network of ARFCOM all rolled into one.

That being said, I love visiting it and have done it quite often as of late.

Guilty pleasure.

Although some of the college football threads are epic in their breadth of regional sectionalism. Defend your conference as being the best collection of champions in the country while at the same time bad-mouthing the individual teams with a vigor unsurpassed by any.

So how many games is Neuheisel going to last?

If you were also a atheist liberal female cop with tats who supports abortion you might implode GD with a single post.





That is funny. Probally true but funny.

Sounds like me.



Except the Jewish part.
And the Harley rider part.
And the sportsbike rider part.
And the bicycle commuter part.
