You've been muted!

Ah, the dreaded Everyblock mute button. It's an easy button to use for those simple-minded trolls and sock-puppet's who read and comment on EB. It means those net-people are tired of hearing from you. All you have to do to find out you've been cut-off from the unneighborly readers list is to look at your profile.

In 2013 the top muted people on Everyblock/Rogers Park are Helen Carlock and Phoebe King. Helen's been muted 15 times and ole' Feeb's has been cut off by her neighbors 13 times. No one else is even close. Not even Alderman Moore. He's only been muted 6 times.

Yes not a neighborly thing to do on such a neighborly site (muting them). You shouldn't be able to mute your neighbors. Its okay to have disagreements.

Phoebe is seriously mentally ill. She's attacked Chicago bloggers, meddled in a lot of affairs that were none of her business and many other things.
I still peek over there now and then and I'm amazed that people ask for ridiculously simple advice instead of trying to help themselves at first, they can turn on a computer, and type, but they can't seem to figure out Google or maybe just strolling around the neighborhood and seeing what's out there.
There's so many trolls, it's so obvious to me "Hi, I just moved here and now I want to know about how to improve the community".
Usually when I move somewhere it takes me awhile to start finding significant fault with things, the first thing I consider is where to get food and get laid, not how to be a meddling douche.

Jeff-O, before being banned by EB Becca, only three people muted me. I'm guessing Helen and Feeb's were two of them.

Not bad.

DUI, you crack me up.

Basic EB conversation. "Hi, I just moved to the neighborhood and need to find out how to wipe my ass and flush my toilet. Anyone got advice?"

Here's another dumb-ass neighbor comment on EB.

"Hi, I need a loaf of bread. Any help is appreciated!"

I literally cannot stomach old Helen anymore! How many meds must she be on?!?!? How can you be that old, live in such a shit show neighborhood and still be in that much denial?

EB is only good to skim for possible important new info. Alot of it is nonsense and stuff thats already been covered.

If I ever lose a pet or want a new pet or need someone to care for my pet or need advice for my pet, I will go to EB! Very pet-friendly people; more so than "people" people, I think.

I toe the line and even cross it now and then, but if you don't identify any mugger, rapist or other alleged criminal as anything other than a bipedal carbon based lifeform, people will jump all over your post and derail it with political correctness, screaming "Raaaacism Raaacism!!"
Or bitching about some big corporate chain filling up a long-empty storefront and wanting some mom and pop place instead. They'd rather see it empty.
Big corporations pay taxes, provide security, etc, etc, they're not all bad.
Except for Wal-Mart, fuck them.

Ah, picking on EB is like going over to Miseracordia and challenging them to do crossword puzzles. Too easy. I just stopped going. Amazing how I don't miss it.

Craig Gernhardt said...

Bill, I know a few seniors who'd kick my ass at Sudoku.

Bill said...

Soduku is another story. Plenty of Rain Men and Women in RP.

Some idiot over there actually asked where to buy groceries, I wonder how they got themselves dressed and got to work?

Son of a god damned bitch! EB is no place for us crusaders. I prefer the tasty snacks available right here in the broken god damned heart of Rogers Fucking Park. I don't got no god damed pussy who needs a vet. I need me some REAL news. Right here and right over in Chevanstonrogerspark. Ace god damned reporting.
