Quote from: Sonny_Jim on September 16, 2021, 12:33:21 PMI found CaB because Adam Buxton named dropped it on one of his podcasts, inevitably got sucked into the GlinnerSaga and now I'm posting about the colours of international crisp packets.Slippery slope, innit.
Quote from: pigamus on September 16, 2021, 12:14:22 PMPerhaps we should have a woman who smells for balance. I'm sure Julie Burchill reeks of fags.
Quote from: QDRPHNC on September 16, 2021, 01:48:07 PMI can see that my most recent posts in the Glinner thread are pointless ("padding", as Lisa said)
QuoteMaybe something similar could be the Chris-Chan saga, but I know for sure that CaB would never indulge in the schadenfreude of that for one second

Quote from: Sonny_Jim on September 16, 2021, 02:03:31 PMYeah I've considered whether it's healthy or not to endlessly pick apart the minutiae of it, but gosh darn if he doesn't keep on doing crazy shit and it's nice to be able to make jokes that very few people in the world will find funny.The whole 'it's ok because he is a bully' thing I get a bit conflicted with. He does deserve it, especially done in a comedy way due to his origins. Joking about his wife and kids leaving is a bit rum, but it never really gets any worse than that.
Quote from: QDRPHNC on September 16, 2021, 01:48:07 PM...it occurred that if we want back 10 years when Graham was still known for writing sitcoms, and found out that he was a serial sex pest, or even a rapist or a nonce, there would have been a flurry of news and discussion, and by this point (to CaB I mean), his name would be an occasional lazy, edgy reference. But it's something so different to that, it's such a unique situation. And it's a horrible situation, but it's also fascinating for valid reasons, because it's so completely singular.
Quote from: FerriswheelBueller on September 16, 2021, 06:08:10 PMAs it is, I'm fine with threads being there. I don't know what the fix is for people who find them annoying - sticky them to the top like the labour/brexit threads in general bullshit maybe?
Quote from: Zetetic on September 16, 2021, 06:44:49 PMI think the worst things about the Glinner threads is that the "it's fine to bully bullies" logic (which Linehan clings to as a justification himself) sometimes takes - I think - some posters in directions that degrades themselves and doesn't really do any good to anyone. Not generally, with respect to Linehan but about some of the damaged people with misdirected trauma.
Quote from: QDRPHNC on September 16, 2021, 06:54:35 PM - mocking certainly, ...
Quote from: Janie Jones on September 16, 2021, 08:05:37 PMWhen Madhair's wonderful thread summary was trending we thought we'd get a huge influx of new anti-transphobes. We didn't. Just some 'wow, those guys are funny and savage,' sort of comments on Twitter. I know I'm in the minority and I'll be accused of whining and asking to see the manager (funny that) but I think the mocking of anyone's appearance diminishes us and makes the place look 'savage' and unwelcoming .
Quote from: QDRPHNC on September 16, 2021, 06:54:35 PMI see what you're getting at, and I agree broadly I suppose. But a couple of things. I don't think the Glinner threads here are bullying - mocking certainly, but bullying connotes something more focused and intended to inflict pain. I also see how my previous post was ambiguous. I'm not saying that's it ok bully bullies, just that Glinner being a bully explains a lot of why so many of us here have such an interest in the threads dedicated to watching and commenting on his behaviour.
