Shroomery events
    #3824915 - 02/23/05 11:57 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

We need to have some shroomery events. I was thinking of two ideas.

One would be shroomery online gatherings We could all target a fairly mainstream site and saturate it with good comments about psychedelics, perhaps a top 20 book on amazon.com or something (in the spirit of the hasselhoff reviews) drawing attention to our cause but carefully constructing only a positive message.

Another would be shroomery debates. Topics could be nominated in a thread in the pub, and then voted on, and once topics are selected, contestants are assigned to a topic and a side and a timed debate is to follow, with sponsers putting up a couple syringes in exchange for a following from the thread and maybe space in the debators signatures. Voters could be by polling or by selected panels of judges.

Either could be good, and neither would require any new forums or programming to implement.

Lets do it! Whaddya think?

I'm always down for a good debate.

The first idea is a good one in theory. I bet the minute that it's implemented the OTD gangsters start posting tubgirl and goatse all over the place.

Not only that but I don't think the shroomery is an agressive organization. We're not here to shout out truth and get people to beleive. We're here so if people want to join us and be a part of it, they can...thier choice.

How would you feel if a bunch of activists infiltrated our site spreading thier controversial truth all over the place?

the truth is not controversial its fact. Now if we were just speaking an opinion I could understand your view. I think as long as we were to stick only to facts about our cause then it we could really change some minds. Then if they see the facts and cant dismiss them as easily maybe they come here and start to learn more. Its simultaneously advertising and activism. This community is large and if it chose to wake up we could have quite an impact.

I also think that we dont have to be doing this to right wing republican boards or anything. I hate to say it but they are sort of a lost cause(I realize there are quite a few W fans here by the way, but im speaking in the majority). I think if we started or at least centered our "campaign" on sites where we can reach "open" minds, we will have many more results.

The shroomery is a great service, but it is also home to a large adn ever growing community. Its time the community started to do something. To just believe in something isnt always enough, at some point for change to happen you have to stand up and fight for it. Even if that only means giving people information. Its time we started to actively promote ourselves. Instead of just being content with the way things are.

Hey now.  We keep our tubgirl where it's appropriate.  Spreading the good news is not an appropriate time to be showering newbies with orange liquid goodness.  Just good info.  :grin:

i hate missionaries. if you wanna get a posse together and go posting peaceful shroomlove on another forum that's all you'd be, a missionary. the tubgirl and goatse would be better use of your time, imo - people don't want a bunch of stoners invading their website any more than we want them. at least with tubgirl they could go 'oo, ah, look at that! that is a wierd enema fountain, and wtf have they fuzzed out the genitals, etc etc' before you all got booted. just my opinion.

as for debating, isn't that what happens all the time here anyway?

i don't mean to burst your bubble, i like your enthusiasm. i'm a mischievous cynical optimist by nature, myself.
