OPEN THREAD FOR SCHITZO’S…

By ATWadmin On May 20th, 2007

tinfoil-hat.jpgSometimes you just have to laugh at this entire blogging business. Each day, I sit down and write about things that interest me, and whether I am right or wrong, it is my honest beliefs that I seek to convey.

99.9% of ATW’s many thousands of regular readers manage to argue along, sometimes proving me right and sometimes showing me wrong, which is great and all part of the fun.

But then there are the delusional tendency, the small number of crazies that come on here to pose as others – sometimes me, sometimes Andrew, sometimes other commentators. And yes, you know that despite my libertarian attitude I end up banning them because if I didn’t they would merely inject unlimited confusion. But I am an understanding person, and so it is that I offer an open thread for all those freaks who lurk out there  to come on and impersonate whoever you want….and of course for our sane readers to let the freaks know we love them just as much as anyone else – it’s just we’d rather that they put on their tinfoil hats and headed off to those many blogs which welcome such loons! I’m off out for a meal with my family but I will be checking in later…..and the moon is rising….

  1. Enjoy your meal David. Hope you don’t feel the need to bring it up again when you read this thread later !

  2. I’ve noticed that the wee six has dropped off the menu somewhat now that the Mr Hyde of ATW is in semi retirement / self imposed exile.

    Is this a de facto admission of acceptance of the new power sharing dispensation by the ATW team or just indicitive that some contributors to this blog are singularly fixated compulsives with sociopathic personalities?.

    I think we should be told

  3. Why do you pretend to be a defendant of free speech here (and delete or censor posts at your whim) and propose mass murder when on the BBC you pretend to be a principled opponent of terrorism?

    Why here do you defend views that you would never defend on the BBC?

    Surely as a critic of the BBC you should turn down your fees for appearing there and save the rest ofus on our own fees?

    If you accept fees from the BBC which you attack, drive a SUV and earn as you say, a six figure slary why do you have a tip-jar?

  4. I believe I can answer a few of those:

    "Why do you pretend to be a defendant of free speech here (and delete or censor posts at your whim)"

    Because this website is private property. You’ll notice that Mr. Vance does indeed allow views counter to his own here, provided such views are argued intelligently and politely. For instance, I have disagreed with Mr. Vance on numerous occasions yet none of my posts have been deleted.

    "and propose mass murder when on the BBC you pretend to be a principled opponent of terrorism?"

    Here I cannot comment, for I’ve not heard David propose mass murder.

    "Why here do you defend views that you would never defend on the BBC?"

    Again, I don’t know what you’re talking about here.

    "Surely as a critic of the BBC you should turn down your fees for appearing there and save the rest ofus on our own fees?"

    Not at all. David has (assuming he hasn’t avoided it) been forced to pay his lisence fee. Accepting money from the BBC is merely recouping this lost capital (since he opposes the BBC he presumably gains little or nothing from their service). In addition, he is providing a service to the BBC which is in turn a service to the viewers of the BBC who pay their fees in order for the BBC to decide how to spend it, for instance, on having David appear on its shows.

    "If you accept fees from the BBC which you attack, drive a SUV and earn as you say, a six figure slary why do you have a tip-jar?"

    Because he’s a greedy, cigar smoking, top hat wearing capitalist (seriously, he’s got a monacle and everything). Also, by accepting money from an organization that he opposes, he is denying that organization funds and thus reducing its ability to operate. He’s a sly one that Vance.

  5. Because he’s a greedy, cigar smoking, top hat wearing capitalist (seriously, he’s got a monacle and everything).

    LOL!

  6. { Surely as a critic of the BBC you should turn down your fees for appearing there and save the rest ofus on our own fees? }

    Yes and as an advocate of lower taxes he should practice tax evasion!

  7. CL – most excellent rebuttal!!

    There don’t seem to be very many nuts here…. maybe it will pick up and become more amusing since Mr. McCann has recently posted some fresh meat for the buzzards!

  8. I don’t understand the heading: "Open thread for Schitzo’s… It’s a Conspiracy."

    Who is Schitzo? I googled him and could only find a reference to a "Living Dead doll" of that name.

    Is there someone else called Schitzo, and does he have a show called "It’s a Conspiracy"? If so, what’s the relationship to impersonators, sock puppets and trolls?

  9. Dawkins: Schitzo (full name Phillip Schitzo) is Finnish and he invented Tin Foil.

  10. Well, I have put my tinfoil hat on, and let me tell you, it gives me a whole new perspective!
    Wow, 9/11 was an inside job, caused by Bush and the Jews (of course!) It’s like the airplanes dont…and metal doesnt burn until…yeah! So GWB caused it to happen. And you know that earthquake in Kent last month, that was Israel testing its new weapon. See YouTube for details. And 7/7 was caused by Blair, he knew about it all, he was working with the Freemasons and Jews. And…… Wow, this tinfoil hat changes, like, your whole perspective!

  11. Patty,

    You sure? Doesn’t sound Finnish to me and Google doesn’t seem to have heard of him.

  12. The BBC has a sliding-scale of non-negotiable fees which it pays people who are invited to hosted studio discussions. That fee depends on their importance/popularity.
    Enoch Powell, who had little regard for TV, used to fix his OWN fees for appearances, and they could like it or lump it. They usually liked it.

    Knowing David Vance’s contempt for the BBC, it would be encouraging to think that he would have done the same as EP, and said: "Yes, I don’t mind joining in, so long as you pay my expenses, plus £300 for my time and effort".

    That would kind of ‘let him off the hook’.

  13. Dawkins: Hope you were joking because I was.

  14. We’re baaaaaaaa-aaaa-aaaack!

  15. Hurray! Great to see the fix has worked Monica!

  16. Wow, this spineless country is going to the dogs, caused by Blair, womens lib and the muslims (of course!). See Daily Mail for details. It’s like he plotted it…and he’s a communist…yeah! So Blair is a liar (see Independent for details). And you know that earthquake in Kent last month, that was Blair and the Labour party opening a secret new immigration centre. See Daily Mail for details. And 7/7 was all caused by Blair, he knew about it all since 1952, he was working with Labour and the communists plotting our demise. And…… Wow, this tinfoil hat changes, like, your whole perspective!

    (Indeed Tom! 😉

  17. Alison and Tom,

    Now you see the value of a tinfoil hat! lol!!

  18. As I was banned last night for voicing the opinions and questions above, I rest my case that Mr Vance is a hypocrite, in that he bans people like me who attack the inconsistency of his views: he is an advocate of mass murder (of Iranians and Palestinians) and attacks the BBC for a left wing bias when it in fact affords him air time out of all proportion to the el;ctoral support fr his political views. I fully expect to be banned again for voicing these facts. But hey, David next time you make a public appearance, you wont be able to dodge the embrarrassing questions the way you can on this blog. You’ll never know the minute,

  19. Poor sad Jo. You’re banned because you have libelled others on this site who exercise quiet dignity and decency whereas all you spout is trash. I do wonder however if the NI Civil Service are aware that one of their employees is using their computers to spout some trash? Perhaps Jo could reveal her full name – I think some people would like to discuss her activities with her employer.

  20. Patty,

    "Dawkins: Hope you were joking because I was."

    Snigger. That was of course for the delectation of our Glorious Leader. It seems like only yesterday when he was mocking Sir Percy on account of his poor spelling. Then he makes two errors in a seven-letter word :0)

  21. Hmmm I notice that David Vance HIMSELF has posted on this thread?

    Oh bother, now I’ve gone and followed his example.
