posticon Heh! The editor indicates as 4-1-18 as the new close


It's impossible to say if it will hold or not, but at this point, I just go there. The conversation thing, has dried up, for the most part, dying on the vine of "liberal: ideology. It has been this way for quite a while, even before Politics, went under.

 People say they are technologically inclined for the Future, but seems more focused on politics and economics. I am the same way, but, these types want exclusion of competing ideas or facts. Like Daniel Patrick Moynihan said: We can have our a right to our own opinion, but not to our own facts.

At any rate-this is a new drop dead date, so whatever arrives or does not, we can talk about nearly anything here :p

April 18th? Taking a long time to die.

The New MindX will be heralded by the moderators as a great advance in controlling speech.

When will they ever learn . . .

I don't think they are really going to close.

When they shut down the Off-topic threads, and we established this new site, they had an epiphany: we can keep the forum going, dust off everyone that is not far left and get back to our old indoctrination mission.

In no time at all, zombiefood will be running roughshod over anyone who entertains any non liberal notions. They may even delete the majority of threads, keep only the ones like "Are all Jews racist" and pick up right where they left off.

Doc, clunky is right. It took me about ten minutes to make a single post over there.

Perhaps you are right...working on Mark II

It won't work as expected if true. First of all, because of you Spike, we now have an information exchange method-here! It was possible that the Perfessors invite-only group (Troika?) was the launchpad for suggesting the 'purge'? Maybe yes, maybe no (shrug).

The epiphany, is that we won't go away, sulking, but simply, comment, at leisure, on Kurzweil stays open. Go there, sometime, when the mood suits. Moreover-maybe if the Kurz foreign stays open, it too, may become "Invite-Only?" It's a thought.

Getting Guilio-once he gets his new book out, over here would be a great idea, and be something of a draw, from the Kurz forum.

That is a really good point. This is, if nothing else, our "hole in the wall".

They will never be free of us =D

Most of the rest of the posting seems, tame, seems stilted, seems very narrow in focus. Here, we go from politics, to sex, to space colonization, to whatever garners our interest.

The olde forum, is kind of a Casper Milquetoast, of its formerly, vibrant, self. Possibly, it is the expectations of the "futurists" have not panned out?

If it isn't UBI or socialism, it is outside the interest-window, of many. On the other hand, they may be on to something exciting, that I just don't get. Having said that, if I go to Sandia Labs and say; I want you to build a particle accelerator, but I will pay you in SPUD-Coins, does anyone feel that would be acceptable as currency??

So, I stick with the tactile, quantum computing, medical treatments, lasers-the material.

I don't understand why you would want to relegate the death watch of MindX to the Netherworld. In some ways, however, it makes sense.

Kurz has become lefty, just like every site that is not expressly opposed to neo-Marxisism. The Right has rules, the Left subverts, and then ... it's gone.

As Spud notes, KAI use to be a place for long MindX exchanges. The Left just couldn't tolerate, so it had to end.

The majority of posts became simply a link to something someone else wrote, or a scream about a personal battle.

Many have expressed sympathy for Amara. She was not honest in my estimation. I had long email exchanges with her. Maybe I'll post them.

Netherworld is hidden except to logged in members. It is just "smoother" this way.

I mean, like the moribund Politics section on Kurz, it was a good place to serve its purpose, if one wants to isolate all the wonderful niceness of futurism, and science; versus, how people really are. It sort of worked and replicating it to say, here, or News is a wise idea. Here is another reason:
