I have paid my dues.

I tardificated UD for some time before being obliviated. I have shouted in the leaden ears of nitwits. I have expended in long and fruitless debates electrons that could have been used to view naked ladies.

So why are we devoting so much time and effort to Uncommonly Dense?

It's not as if it was the focus of some potent conspiracy: if anything, its a refuge for the mediocre and insignificant.

It's not the fulcrum of fundie fulmination: that distinction goes to AIG and the likes. There is far greater scope for sock-puppet tomfoolery there.

Dembski, Densye and Davetard, the Three Stooges of Intelligent Droolery, are simply boring. They have exhausted their potential for scientific ridicule, political pummelling, and even for satire. There is a wealth of talent and intelligence in this forum that could be put to use elsewhere.

I propose that the focus of this establishment be moved to places more important to the culture wars (I nearly typed 'wards', which was serendipitous), and which provide far more scope for entertainment.  

Certainly, UD harbours a few nuggets of anti-talent whose exploits can and should be exploited. But this could be done more fruitfully in the wider context of the creationist family, of which ID is merely the Son We Sent To College But Who Ended Up A Bum Like The Rest Of Us.

Und?

merely the interweb "you are ells" are all that we require.  the novices who lurketh long have issues deciphering the locales that the tard dwells therein.
the masters provid some links but often do not and
merely a pointer would suffice.  and surely goodness and mercy will not follow the tards for long but shall provide entertainment forever and ever...amen.

Point taken.

Favourite haunts are usually lurkeries suggested by FSTDT.com, though I have resorted to the odd manumanekin.

Edit: 'a' for an 'e'. Not that enyone cares.

Amadan I am fascinated by your question.  My question is, what is wrong with 'Because we can'?

As the grand master Lenny Flank said more than a year ago, ID is dead.  All that is left is lineage sorting and ultimate extinction, as none of these morphs are ecologically viable.

I think you are presuming that we are not engaged on other fronts of the culture wards.  I am.  I'm not sure of everyone else.  But even if they weren't, UD is just good frikkin tard and that is warrant enough.

Because it's a fun thing to do.

Steve Story use to post comments every month or two at the UD mockery thread making similar complaints - they were getting boring, and nothing had really happened since the halcyon days of flatulent animation.

But then a melt-down would happen, and then another one, and now he's given up.  So, be patient.  Another meltdown will be along soon.  It may not shake the handsets of the Baylor Board of Regents, but it'll be worth waiting for.

Gnash. S'pose you're right.

I'm off to Amazon to pick a fight. They won't let me back onto Rapture Ready.

Right on Bob.

Yes, we must be ever vigilent in the fight against tard, yet tard-watch has its own reward.  Although I never slow down to look at a car wreck on the highway, I am drawn to the absurdity of the UD posters and sycophants, and find it endlessly amusing.  IMO, UD = Is Cartoons For Adults

I think that the biggest reason to come here as often as I do though is that the style and content of the posters here at ATBC.  I hate to sound like a UD suck-up, but without the commentators participation here, it wouldn't be as much fun.

It's like visiting the Daily Show set, and being to interact with the guests.  

Thanks again to all that participate.  

We now return you to the regularly scheduled bashing.

I prefer to think of UD and the sockpuppetry from here as analogous to the manipulation of mortals by the gods at Olympus.
