NEWbies

Postby unnatural » Tue Jan 05, 2021 2:09 am

Hello to all intelligent and philosophical persons who are reading this! Your community seemed interesting, so i signed up. =D>

But it seems Newbies are some kind of chandala second class citizen. Very disconcerting . :-k
Nevertheless i shall persevere through these trying times.

Imagine my predicament, a lowly and humble newbie, I'm told i cannot post without approval, or private message. Then it is explained i am to contact board bigwigs about this yet! i am denied these very privileges. #-o

Please, can somebody get me of probation here? [-o< Give a guy a break here...

Anyway, this is an interesting site, i just wish i could have participated. I just. wish i. could of. been a. contender!?

Well, I've said what i came to say. And In case you don't ever see me here again... good afternoon, good evening, and good night.

Unnatural, I think you need to make like thirty something posts before that annoying or pesky post moderation thing is gone. It sucks, I know. Keep at it.

Has the required number of posts risen? Used to be five, wasn’t it?

Each time Satyr has a new sock puppet it is raised by 1.
"The ultimate truth is the flux of things with the contradiction that it contains within itself [i.e., the contradiction between past and future]. Being torn between its opposites and formless, this ultimate truth is not world, either. There is only an unreal world; the real is nothing but pure negativity, time, or, as Nietzsche also calls it: suffering. But pure negativity has, by itself and out of itself, no persistence: it is [i.e., exists] only as it produces the show [Schein] out of itself, which, however, because it stands in opposition to it, is itself not real either but only a show. [...W]ithout the show, taken by itself, the eternal flux has no persistence. It must produce the show out of itself. The show therefore belongs to its truth." (Georg Picht, Nietzsche, pp. 251-52, my translation.)

It's a few, I won't say exactly because that promotes gamification, but it doesn't change and it's not that many. And usually I'll manually remove the restriction if someone seems human.

It often feels longer because I forget to check pending posts/there are too many to get through in a sitting. But it's really only intended to catch spam, of which we get a lot.
