Who is DaveDave?
« on: January 20, 2011, 10:33:28 PM »
Just saw that abortion in the bottomless pit... Who the hell is that guy? I've been on here for over a year and never heard of him before... Then he pops up with 2,000+ posts, blathering like he's the fuckin' Che Guevera of atheism or something, calling everybody retarded fucktards and telling them to fuck themselves...

What did I miss?  :?

P.S. However, get use to the smell of the Bottomless Pit since I think this thread and all of us are about to find ourselves there.  Probably best not to call-out individuals in public threads--except, of course, if it is "Why am I so Attracted to Doctor X and His Maelstrom of Masculine Majesty?"--then it should be a "sticky"--unless the thread is by Jim . . . which means it is wrong.

Oh! Okay.

...

Umm...

Maybe this is a silly question, but why? I mean, it's pretty obvious he's got nothing but contempt for half the people on here... Or Tourettes?

Either way, doesn't seem like a very agreeable fellow from first impression. Isn't there, like, a "Let's Firebomb a Church" facey-space page or something he could get down with? You know, where other "civil" people might be overjoyed to have such a charming self-proclaimed leader of men calling them fucktard? 

I is confused. Not a rare occurance, I admit... But still confused.  :-\

@ Doc X, you barely hide your curiosity!  Control yourself.

@ Ray, DaveDave responds to everyone's questions with patience and grace, I'm sure he'd be glad to fill you in on the details if you were to ask.  He's an olde tymer on the forum, from way, way back when it had a different name, WDGHA.

Well, I'm not overly interested in his rhetoric... I'm interested in why people would put up with the Napolean Complex.

I get that a lot of old schoolers seem to think he's really "intelligent", but who cares? It's not like there's a deficiency of wisdom or insight here. Does he really have enough positive s**t to bring to the table, that it will outweigh the tectonic plate on his shoulder?

This isn't a recruiting center for millitant atheists, last I checked... It's a forum for discussion. Civil discussion, ideally. Kind of why I joined in the first place.

I guess I'm a little concerned. I'm not inclined to hang around much if I have to listen to King NoGod telling me to KISS THE RINGS all the time.

I don't care if he's the most brilliant mofo since Elmer Fudd, dude comes across as an unbelievably beligerant dick... Like a freaking cartoon character of all the worst atheist stereotypes rolled into one.

I have zero patience for that s**t. It doesn't do anybody any favors, and I don't see myself behaving very well when he inevitably hops on the megaphone and starts screaming "PUSSY!" at me. 

I see myself getting banned with a quickness, actually. And I don't want to see that happen.  :(

edit: I suppose I could just not interact with him, obviously, but A.)That's a punk move, just staying quiet to keep the waters still, and B.)It pisses me off just as much to see him treat OTHER people like s**t when it's completely uncalled for.

Davedave is was banned formerly.  He actually has 9,148 posts, and has been a member of the forum since the first week of it's creation several years ago.

Some members made a case that Davedave represented a rare quality of atheist poster and added a certain 'vibrancy' to the community and that he should be allowed to return.  Reaction was mixed, but there were some pretty convincing examples given so we lifted the ban and he was informed.  Generally we do not lift bans, so we shall see how well this works out.

As for personal details, you'll have to ask him yourself.

Blech. Like I said, I have 0 interest in personal details. Looking back over his past posts tells me about all I need to know about him personally, to be honest.

I've just never seen any posts from him, and then suddenly there's this retarded monster in the bottomless pit with some ghost of heathen's past blasting people I have a lot of respect for. And that s**t he said to the paperback chick was bitchslap worthy where I come from.

If it's a community thing, where members wanted him back... Well, kudos. The people have spoken, I guess. And apparently some people have a much stronger stomach than I do.

Though I thought the community was already plenty vibrant, myself.

<shrug>

Well, thanks for enlightening me folks. I'm sure this will just be OODLES of fun.  &)

This is the image that sprang to mind the instant I read your post.

Hahahahaha! You know, I've been waiting with bated breath to see what your reaction was going to be... This is fucking gold, Ray. It was worth it just to see this thread. God bless you.

You read my mind too Ray!  I was thinking to myself, who the fuck does this guy think he is anyway!?  This DickDick  is definately the drama queen of atheism.  I went back and read the bottomless Pit post and he's picking fly shit out of a pile of pepper.  He needs Jesus or something because it's like debating a christian, but with more arrogance and delusional judgement.

Edited:  I see that he has +20 respect points and he's only been back here a short time.  That's already more than I have so he must be doing something right that I haven't read yet.  I now have an inferiority complex....

Like I said, there was a reasonably compelling argument for him.  I've known him for a long time, on the forums so I'd hate to have him gone over something petty.  I do enjoy a vigorous argument, like many (probably most) here, but when they devolve into juvenile name calling it is disappointing to see.

All joking and photo bucket posts aside, it pays to remember the simple motto that the forum is not about the forum.  Like all communities there should be give and take between the members.  As long as this community remains vibrant and intellectually honest it will continue to do well.

I, for one, find his argument very compelling. I think the only way we make deep inroads, at least in the USo'A, is to be militant, and sacrificial. There will be pain.

That being said, he acts like a douche. His vitriol, especially amongst rational thinkers, will not get him very far.
Actually it doesn't. One could conceivably be all-powerful but not exceptionally intelligent.

I find some of DaveDave's ideas quite provocative in a positive sense - although he can be unnecessarily abrasive and I don't agree with everything, when I look past all that he certainly gets my attention and challenges the tired old pathways in my brain.   

Whether I accept or reject his ideas I think I'm better off for having considered them  :)

Welly welly well, I hope the optimistic among you are correct, dear droogals, for everybody's sake. You never know. Perhaps I'll be overwhelmingly dazzled by unparalleled brillance and the cult of personality, and suddenly find myself inspired to follow the marshmellow man into glorious battle against the Jesusly hoards.

He was a... umm... sloshball captain, afterall... Apparently... And well, if that don't qualify a man to start up a militia properly worthy of an FBI watchlist, I don't know what does.

Aside from being really *REALLY* good at "Stratego", of course.

Or maybe being the floor manager at an Applebee's.

Sigh... I suppose I should suspend further judgement. I mean, if he's going to be the Father of the Revolution and all, and lead us into the bright and shining dawn of a religion-free tomorrow-morrow land... Jinkies, it sure would be embarassing to have doubted him so! 

Thanks for the input, my fucking fucktarded friends! Much love and have a fine evening/morning/whatever.  :-*

Happy Friday! I shall say no mo'!  :-X

I'll be honest, I don't like the impression he gives. His ideas and views are more than welcome and controversy is brilliant for debate and he seems intelligent enough to offer something and in that sense I can understand why some people find him charming, but he strikes me as arrogant and petty, which he doesn't need to be and I don't understand why he has a stick up his arse (because he was banned? *shrugs*). Unless he refuses to stick to forum rules then I have no issue him being here, but of course, if he continues being a douchebag, then don't expect me to get along with him. He was told there would be no restriction on what he could say, that suggests he's being given special treatment. I find it hard to tolerate the arrogant theists we get on here, so there's a chance I won't tolerate his behaviour either. Though of course, my impression could be wrong, I don't know the guy, so it's difficult to say anything based on impression. Maybe he'll show why he's more valuable than every other member on this forum in time, I mean, if the mods have given in to his demands, there must be something special, right? *shrugs*
