I need a bit of light relief from the Baby Gard thread. Think I'll go catch up on the latest clownish antics in TrumpWorld for a while instead.


I've avoided that thread for this exact reason. I lost a sibling in their late teens to medical negligence. But it's very fucking possible to know there are shit doctors, feel desperately sad for Charlie's parents, and think it's being dragged out too long.
I fucking despair at the media circus it's become. I know when we were in the situation of whether or not to let go, the last thing we would have needed were people encouraging us to keep fighting without knowing the situation properly. Just seeing the Facebook posts from friends was hard enough, all that "you can beat this! Keep fighting!", makes you doubt you're doing the right thing.

Yeah all before my time too. I've read about it since, but I pressume it's turned into a kind of Chinese whispers thing. It's been told and accusations have been made that many times it's all become convoluted and difficult to sift through the bullshit.


I saw some of it going down - never once posted and it got so surreal, I had to stop reading it.

I've seen some highly weird shite rolling out online, but this had to be one of the biggest train wreck threads, ever :ooer:

It should go without saying that no one's infallible, Nic, not even highly experienced doctors. But that's exactly in whose care we sometimes have to place ourselves, and in whom at least some level of trust is essential.

I don't blame that baby's parents for seeking out and pursuing every possible source of available treatment that might result in a better prognosis. But it's been dragging on for way too long now (imo), and I can't let my head go much beyond the thought of how rapidly Charlie's condition is irreperably deteriorating. The fact that he could now be in pain absolutely does it for me...at this stage, in their shoes, I honestly would say "Enough now.", and then hold him close...

I'm sorry for your loss.

I've always found people who say this kind of thing just make themselves look a bit dumb or lacking in education. Focus on the content and not the length as many adults converse in a variety of ways. People who dismiss posts or posters based on length is a bit like Daily Star readers complaining the Wall Street Journal has too many big words in it.


Jaycee Dove's posts may be informative to a point, but they're as dull and humourless as academic texts on quantity surveying. She's just not an engaging writer. Off the top of my head the only person I can think of who's witty enough to write long posts that are worth reading is Stoatie - but he rarely writes long posts, because like all good writers he's concise.


what a load of crap. Many of the worlds best authors write great swathes of prose and are the opposite of concise. anyone who moans about length of post in this way, and often you see this said to articulate thought out posts, smacks of a lack of education or intelligence. That's how it comes across anyway.


SJWHunter used to say exactly this when defending his long winded essays about trumps and z-list totty lolololol

Whilst I don't agree with everything Jaycee says, I do think their posts are articulate, informative and more often than not engaging. I do think it reflects worse on the people who write off posts purely on length, or more often on who the poster is regardless of the content.

If you mean the nooway baby thread it wasn't before your time. I just looked at your ds join date youd been a member of ds and a regular poster for years and were very aware of hobbit when that thread was made :more beer:

Some people just like the sound of their own 'voice' and drone on + on.

You were a member in the days of that thread?

It was a very distasteful thread of the highest order. Mainly because of a particular batshit crazy poster :thumbsup:

I haven't commented on Jaycee's posts before but I will now.
I find her posts very badly written, especially for someone who supposedly writes for a living. Badly written because they are not "engaging" as you say, they are repetitive and tedious. She may as well just copy and paste her first post again and again, there is no difference in content. I could probably write her biography after reading one thread. If you want to educate or convert an audience it's best not to bore the shit out of them.

I find her, as personified by her posts, incredibly patronising and for all the appearance of supposedly "understanding" people with another viewpoint she doesn't. She wants everyone to accept her opinions, thoughts and feelings without paying anyone else the same courtesy.

Do you mean here or at DS? I've been a member over there since 2011, and here since 2014.

IIRC, that thread kicked off on DS around 3 or so years ago - and (imo) there sure as hell was more than one batshit crazy person posting in it! :ooer:

But, of course, neither HF's purposely enigmatic little bullet, nor yours, are worth a damn unless you're prepared to actually name the 'regular poster' you're babbling on about.

Otherwise, it all amounts to nothing more than sniggering "I know something YOU don't!" schoolyard posturing :cuppaT:

We don't out do we?

two of them post here regularly, one under the name they used both on DTV and on DS

the other has used a different name everywhere

perhaps they could be big and brave enough to hold their hands up



thought not
