I tipped the scales just because I wanted to violate SolRo's safe space.
Step 1: Install UBlock Origin:https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock
Step 2: open up the settings, go to 'My Filters' tab and paste the following:
(replace the user ID number with any user, in this case I've chosen evilhomer because his post-election schtick is boring the fucking tits off me)
Step 3: apply changes and voila, no more comments from that user will be visible. You will still see their video submissions but any comments they make will be filtered entirely. The only visible sign will be a double linebreak where their reply would have been. No more wall of text about ponyfucker cartoons or devil's advocate shit on every goddamn subject.
How does it look in practice? http://imgur.com/aqI6ZJm
I kinda just skip the boring posts. You know, like a normal person.
Whatever works for you.
As for the 'normal' remark, look at where you are posting.
Whatever buddy, I don't need no comment bouncer.
You're an idiot, and you upvoted southpark libertard stupidity to proclaim your idiocy.
Ballgag, you're Ublock posts are getting tiresome. Is there some way I can make sure I never have to see them again?
Epic crybaby tantrum thread EvilCenaHoMark.
Cannot wait for your Family Guy/MLP/Steven Universe sick burns that I also won't see.
Somebody please tell Ballgag he's a bitch for me. Also tell him that I'm calling him Ballgag now, as it's fitting being that he is the champion of censorship.
Somebody pass this message to Ballgag as he can't see this message.
Bawbag, I will continue to impotently squawk at you unless all of my demands are met.
1. Unblock everyone you've blocked.
2. Apologize to Homer and me.
3. Advocate against the use of Ublock.
4. Watch every episode of Steven Universe and My Little Pony Friendship is Magic.
I got you Cena. Hey bawbag Cena says he's sorry and was wrong about everything and is hoping to get in up to his wrist this time. Plz unblock

Insufferable boredom, squire, insufferable boredom.
The whole place stinks of your farts.
Can't wait for EH's 11 paragraphs about how I'm fartphobic, where he doesn't know if he's being ironic or not.
cover your ears and hum bitches.
fuck south park and everybody who talks like south park
is that steven seagal
The only thing worse than comment slap fights is front page slap fights.

poeTV is my safe space.
you know, you're sort of right? it's my "not painfully inane" space anyway. imagine a poetv without alt-right shitheads? then the only place to get alt-right shithaberdashery would be imgur, reddit, youtube comments, and every newspaper and every television stations' websites' comments. what an impoverished world that would be.
The theme for this entire election and its aftermath.

If we could only make the effort to understand the pain and anguish of assholes who are told they shouldn't abuse others for their own amusement.
Who speaks for them?
That's where being a proponent of freedom of speech can make you look like the bad guy. There are abusive jerks here, but we've gone along just fine without Ublock.
Yes, the abusive jerks got along fine without UBlock. Why would we ever need such a thing?
Binro the Heretic
Cena, you can be a proponent of free speech and opponent of abusive speech at the same time.
As I said in another thread, "all Black people are lazy criminals." is NOT an opinion. "All women are stupid." is not protected free speech. "All Gays should burn in Hell." is not a religious belief. These things are lies, oppression and harassment and we are not obligated to "tolerate" them in most places.
Now, if someone wants to spout this bullshit in a truly public place, we are legally obligated to let them. However, places like schools, workplaces, Internet forums, etc. are NOT public spaces, they are institutions. Institutions have a function. If someone's "free speech" interferes with that function, the people running the institution have every right to shut them the fuck up.
"As I said in another thread, "all Black people are lazy criminals." is NOT an opinion."
It is an opinion -- but it's not "just" an opinion. It's the sort of opinion that contributes in its small way to the systematic oppression of blacks. In that regard it differs from an opinion such as "it's a little warm today", but they're both opinions.
""All women are stupid." is not protected free speech."
It is protected free speech, in that a person is allowed to say it under almost all circumstances where a person would be allowed to speak. But it's not "just" protected free speech; it too helps contribute to an environment that makes things worse for a significant chunk of the population.
""All Gays should burn in Hell." is not a religious belief."
You see where I'm going with this.
"These things are lies, oppression and harassment and we are not obligated to "tolerate" them in most places."
maybe the rest of you guys want to read ebulhoburd's oh so witty and not-at-all predictable "mebbe the alt-right is the good guys and all the people being threatened with death and imaginative rape are the bad guys" shtick but as someone who would've been happy just to lurk it's pointless noise. if there's a way to just cut out someone who is obviously not interested in a discussion like the tumor they are then i'll take it. there isn't some miraculous argument that is going to make a committed troll change their mind. just send them to coventry. it's easier to move snow than to melt it and it's easier to plow around a stump.
Imaginative rape = coming up with creative scenarios?
I don't get what the big deal is. If other people want to hide comments they don't like, that's fine. Let 'em.
That being said, I've installed UBlock and I've started filtering out posts made by anyone else that I can tell is using UBlock. Let's face it; the only posts you oversensitive freaks ever make that are worth reading are the ones where you get triggered and makes yourselves look like idiots. The remaining "chatbot.txt" comments or ideological circle-jerks just aren't worth my time to read.
Bitchin! So let's start organizing Fezren's birthday party. I'm going to bring a cake that says "Happy Birthday Frieda". It was on sale but I think I can fix the letters.
Gotta say this, if I were interested in avoiding comments that made me angry, I wouldn't have posted here in the past year and a half. My UBlocking is strictly a measure to counter crapflooding, not opinions I disagree with.
I'm bringing him a BLM t-shirt. Oh he's gonna be so stoked!
BLOCKED Lives Matter!
"ALL POSTS MATTER!!" -Cena_mark
though you need to tone it down too, bawbag.
you're dancing around that line where the cure is worse than the disease.
True enough, but I've only been at it 24 hours or so, where those two eejits have been at their 'bit' for years so I'm having some short-term fun with their flailing about.
Not much more piss and vinegar to be extracted out of them on my part, though I'm sure they'll continue shitposting on my replies for the immediate future.
Ballgag is obnoxious, yet I don't Ublock him. I just scroll past his bullshit cause I'm a badass, a former bouncer, and a Coast Guard SEAL.
Neither side of the Ublock controversy has amused me. This suggests that I should block ALL current users and carefully screen any new users for crapflooding.
I resubbed Bakshi's 'Wizards' maybe that'll do it for you poster I don't recognise?
I've been a near total perma-lurker in my almost eight years here. I felt moved to comment due to these tantrums making it on to the main page.
That's not evil. It's just petty.
Bakshi helps but both sides need to go back to posting properly. The fights are taking up too much oxygen.
Bawbag has made a huge tactical error. Imagine if the allies said, "I don't want to hear anything from those Nazis. Destroy the Enigma machine, we're going to Ublock all intel from them." They'd have lost the war. Now the advantage is in the hands of Homer and I. We can plot and scheme against ballgag and he won't even be aware of it.
Allies of free speech. Here's the plan. 5 star all comments made by Homer and me. Say things like, "That's the funniest comment ever. You've become un-annoying lately, Homer, etc."
Then out of curiosity, Ballgag will drop the block on us. Leaving him open to attack. Once he unblocks me, I'll tell Ballgag to fuck himself and that he's an asshole.
Who's with me!
You just compared yourself to the nazis.
Technically, she's right on that point.
So Cena, tell us about your feelings regarding ...Poland.
The whole point of poetv is everyone here is a dumbass, dumbasses.
Well, most of the front age has felt like a 50 year old administrative assistant's Facebook feed for a while now, I guess it was inevitable that the discourse would follow.
I'm sticking around, but all the signs point to PoeTV being extremely bland in 2017.
Even compared to normal.
OZ, part of the reason the discourse is so dull here IMHO is that one, maybe two posters just constantly turn it into their own personal show and chase off people who might have interesting comments/submissions to add. That and the constant firefighting of whichever troll is spamming the fuck out of submissions on any given week. (Also because memedumpster hasn't posted in ages, but that's another story)
Have a look at how badly that stuff fucked up jf_caron's latest submission. I'd rather not take part in that petty drama any more (hence the ublock), but a fair bunch of you are so fucking angry that I've chosen to ignore that shit (and share it with others who want to) that every time I post I've got someone else trying to jump on my nuts about it.
So much of the argument against ignoring them is like someone saying the junk mail in my postbox adds to the content of my letters when in reality, it just takes up my time, space and ends up creating more garbage. The mailman won't stop arriving at your house just because I put up a 'no junk mail' sign, the sky is not falling, adjust your expectations accordingly.
My god, Redford's right!
Loved you in All Is Lost, btw.
It's almost 2017. I'm sure you could find a better cartoon to do your thinking for you than the one that was edgy in the late 90's.
Southpark's the only one to really take on this topic.
university safe space ≠ blocking bores on poetv
Universities are predicated on ideas bouncing off of each other.
Any place that doesn't allow that isn't a university.
This is an active site for thirty users. Bouncing thoughts around among us is not an excuse for longwinded shitblogging every fucking day by two users. There's no direct analogy.
Haha. Yeah, you outrage junkies are blocking each other. Might as well say you'll be blocking air to your lungs.
'Giving up smoking' would be a little more apt.
Just do what I do: avoid this site as much as you can in election years. It's awful every election year.
True, I just hope the current election year doesn't last for the next 4!
