Update: New Comment Forum

Dear Loonwatchers,

We are in the process of remodeling and updating the site. Considering we are a volunteer force this will likely take some time and we’ll keep you posted of any updates. We want a site that serves our intelligent readership in the best possible way and gives you a smooth and comfortable experience both aesthetically and intellectually.

In the meantime we have switched to the Disqus comment forum which requires Loonwatchers to register. Or you can register in the comment section below by clicking on the wheel on the right and hitting “Login.”

This gives commenters more options.

You may wonder if previous comments have been lost. They have not, however it may take up to 24 hours for all comments to be imported to the Disqus forum. We’ll keep you posted.

Disqus Features

  • Threaded comments and replies
  • Notifications and reply by email

I encourage all Loonwatchers to register and continue to contribute their comments and ideas in the discussion space.

    Hmm, sorry to hear about that.

    Thanks for the email.

    Yeah thank you, it went well. My last exam is on Tuesday then we get two weeks off.

  • Ilisha

    Actually, I think you were right. All I got was more abuse.

    In case you ever want to email me in the future,

    I hope your exam went well.

    Ilisha was certainly provoked. I have no sympathy for the scum in that thread.

    I was happy to see Abu Faris’ who thinks oh so highly of his intelligence and likes to put others intelligence down essentially get his ass handed to him by Ilisha.

    I am getting a bit annoyed with this new system for three reasons

    1 having difficulty loading disqus on my Iphone and making comments using my Iphone

    2 I find the layout confusing in terms of who posted when and where

    3 Its not clear when posts have passed moderation IE they appear in the general comments box before under the indevidual features

    Your welcome. I haven’t seen what they said so you can make a better judgement than me on whether their accusations are worthy of a reply, so do what you think is best.

  • Ilisha

    Well, I let them get to me before, which was a mistake. But I’m calm now, and I want to challenge what was said about me and let people make their judgments.

    I know some are not going to give me a fair chance, but not everyone there is unreasonable. Sarka, Kolya, and Sarah Brown are from HP too. If I make a good point, I trust they can discern that.

    Good luck on your exam, and thanks for the playlist.

  • Solid Snake

    Sorry I am studying I dont have time to go over there. But try to chill with this nice playlist

    I have an exam tomorrow, Ill check what those people are spouting some other time.

    I advise you not to.

    “Don’t argue with idiots because they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience. —Greg King

    Never argue with a fool; onlookers may not be able to tell the difference. —Mark Twain

    Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest thou also be like unto him. —Proverbs 26:4 (King James version)”

    If they ha d anything substantial to say they would come on Loonwatch and try to convince us. They are accusing you in front of people who already agree with them.

    Do what you think is right, but I would advise against replying to idiocy. When a child screams and kicks at you, do you do the same?

  • Ilisha

    Okay, so it wasn’t so easy to stay off HP after all. I noticed some accusations against me, and I couldn’t let them go unchallenged, so I plan to finish this thread.

  • GaribaldiOfLoonwatch

    I just want to let everyone know this article will be going off the front page by tomorrow.

  • Ilisha

    I agree with you.

    They had already upset me with their relentless attack on CriticalDragon just before the incidents you’re describing. He was patient and polite with them, for all the good it did him. I think they’re still very rude to him, though he seems okay over there. I’ve never used a curse word on LW, because it’s not that kind of climate here, thank goodness.

    I actually do agree that we should always strive to be polite and respectful, and not curse, though sadly, I don’t always manage it when provoked. It would not be possible for me to be on the receiving end of that and not fire back, so the only option for me is to not go back. That’s easy enough, because I don’t want to.
