Marxist Metaphors: Shroomery Policy!
    #2364175 - 02/21/04 04:50 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

Ok, there has been some debate over use of marxist metaphors, and the administration has been very concerned that marxist similes are being neglected, if not just plain abandoned, altogether.

To help rectify this linguistic imbalance, I have devised a clever plan. We are going to implement a new script in the message board software to keep track of the use of marxist metaphors and similes, of a per user basis. Every user will be given a separate counter for marxist metaphors and marxist similes. When a user has reached their marxist metaphor quota, they will not be allowed to use any more marxist metaphors until they have achieved parity with their marxist simile usage.

Use of marxist analogies will be judged on a per case basis, by the PAL Moderators, and will then be credited to either a user's metaphor or simile tally depending on how the Moderator perceives it. Disputes about analogy branding may be taken to the Admins for final judgment. Geo has volunteered to hear these cases.

PS: I'm also working on an official Shroomery Advertising Policy regarding corporate feminism. So far it hasn't been a problem with our advertisers, but we don't want to be caught with our pants down... :smirk:

You're going to get no end of proletariat soliloquies concerning this three left turns bourgeois amalgam.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

Do I really need to spell it out to you?  :shake:


Proletariat:  The class of industrial wage earners who, possessing neither capital nor production means, must earn their living by selling their labor.
The poorest class of working people.

Three lefts = one right


Bourgeois:  In Marxist theory, a member of the property-owning class; a capitalist


Amalgam: A combination of diverse elements

Don't complicate the issue!! It took long enough finding out what a "marxist metaphor" was!

You know how it is when somebody asks some body first and then they ask another question back trying to didge the issue.

You know how that is.

Just so you all don't worry -- and I know some of you have been worried -- I'm drafting an Official Shroomery Policy regarding: Corporate Feminism, Amazon Feminism, Anarcho-Feminism, Cosmetic Feminism, Cross-Species Feminism, Cultural Feminism, Erotic (or Pro Sex) Feminism, Environmental (or Eco-) Feminism, Individualist (or Libertarian) Feminism, Lesbian Feminism, Liberal Feminism, Marxist and Socialist Feminism, Material Feminism, Masculine Feminism, Moderate Feminism, Multicultural Feminism, Pop Feminism, Postmodern (or Poststructural) Feminism [broken down into both Derida and Foucault axioms], Psychoanalytic Feminism [both Freudian and Jungian], Radical Feminism, and Separatist (including Castrational) Feminism, to name but a few facets on this bright and shining jewel which our sisters carry -- not totally unlike a millstone around their necks -- to relief us from the awful burden...

In deference to our female "brothers," I intend to call this policy paper, "The Official Shroomery Policy Paper on Feminism as it Applies to Posting and Moderation: Or, The Castration of Oedipus Next."

PS: Sorry, I'm kind a "giddy," and "high," at the moment, so just ignore me altogether... :smirk:
