And they finally outed that scammer OmahaSteve (part 2)


for disability fraud with his false dementia claims, because he is still able to do things like make forum posts. Whoever created that site might have a legitimate disability claim, I would vouch for them, provided the authorities take away their internet privileges.


It seems I have dementia and still have a better mind than this POS!

I retired. My pension amount took a hit because I was 57. I needed to get to 60 Had planned on 62.

The disability requests are further up the page: http://hr.cityofomaha.org/images/stories/public_documents/retirement/Civilian/2014/12-2014%20Minutes.pdf

DRIVING PRIVILEGES

Getting your loved one to give up the car keys can be one of the most difficult things a caregiver must do. For many people, driving has been a powerful symbol of independence from the time they were teenagers and got their first license. It can be very distressing when limiting that independence becomes necessary.

Receiving a diagnosis of frontotemporal degeneration need not mean an immediate end to driving. In time however, everyone with FTD or any other degenerative neurological disorder, will become unable to drive. The characteristic behavioral changes associated with FTD can increase risk, and highlight the importance of caregivers getting involved early. People have reduced judgment and are typically unaware of the changes they are experiencing.

A study conducted in 2007 by a team of researchers at the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) evaluated the driving competency of FTD patients and healthy controls in a driving simulation task. The FTD patients received more speeding tickets, ran more stop signs, were involved in more accidents, and had a significantly higher average speed than the controls (de Simonea, L. Kaplana, N. Patronasb, E.M. Wassermanna, J. Grafmana 2007).

Caregivers share in the responsibility for the safety of the person diagnosed and that of others who may be at risk if the person continues to drive when no longer safe. Caregivers need to excercise their own judgment, as well as heed the advice of their physician, when it comes to ďtaking away the keys.Ē

Stop giving these people the satisfaction of knowing they've hurt you. Who cares what ignorant people on the internet say? Ignore them and be happy, dude.

Obviously if you are going to trot out such racism, antisemitism and ignorance on display for all to see, you probably don't have one.

What tickles me is they have the nerve to pretend to be outraged over here that they are called out as being associated with it, denying it, etc., then they leave their tells all over the place.

Glad you added this, I'd posted a link to it earlier here but maybe nobody clicked on it. There has been one person here who's ever used that avatar she altered. The only time that alteration was mentioned was by me, I don't think anyone else even noticed (but her pals, who probably laughed their asses off at it). She stopped using it here just a little while ago. Hmmmm ......... I wonder why?

So damned obvious.

That they have a site mocking a great DU'er now gone, and someone here for a disability turns my stomach, among all the other really vile things said there.

These people have no shame, no empathy, no decency, imo. From reading for years here, and recently on their hate sites, they're all for the status quo - it's no wonder they hate Bernie Sanders and his supporters to the extent they do. Desperation, and .......... edit: "Stupidity knows no bounds".

Not a great way to advance her ideals or campaign, but I guess when hate overtakes that goal ...... sick sites like that are what gives you the most fulfillment. Notice how happy they are when one of their favourite targets is brought up - it's like a pack of hyenas racing towards their next meal. Really strange to watch, actually.

Another rancid, cobwebbed corner of the internet to sever the lost and depraved, wallowing in their hatred. Don't we have two of them already, or is this one of the two existing, or another one?

It's depressing to think that anyone would spend valuable time doing this. Not even ORIGINAL. The Cave was at least original. Imagine being so low you have to emulate the lowest?

Steve, it is a compliment if THAT'S where it came from.

Sick, very sick people.

5. Wow! That Jackass website confirms the taught DSM-IV disorders characteristic of a dystopic society.

.


I took a visit to that site last night, out of curiosity as a Democrat and neutral Primary Candidate Poli-Sci continuing ed student.

That site shows a level of meanness that I haven't seen since visiting Ace of Spades and other RW places.


It must be a real badge of honor for someone to participate on that site--in some people's minds.

What a bunch of cruel and vile f*cks. Nothing more is needed to be said.


#Represent



PS. I guess I'll get added on there too. That's what the simpleton bullies over there would probably do.

113. I agree

I didn't quite find it as shocking as you did though, having been on various message board communities that have imploded over the years I've seen some pretty vile behavior...however I did have a giggle at the cognitive dissonance it must've taken for them to write their 'about us' page - claiming to be Democrats while employing every single vile right wing tactic known to man takes some serious mental gymnastics, that's for sure.

"We are not disgusting horrible right wing people like you say! We cannot BELIEVE you would say such things! Now...we will make fun of you for saying such things by acting exactly how disgusting horrible right wing people would act...."

138. I've had one PM-ing me all day

 

telling me "I was not involved"; evidence got posted.

Then it was "that wasn't so bad". Another post providing evidence.

Then said person finally made a post that got hidden for personal attacks (I didn't alert on it, by this point the personal attack just validated what the evidence had been revealing).

More evidence posted, and I was treated to the grand finale of "I'm finished with you, you are crazy!"



It just tickles the hell out of me. I hope more of them drop by.

I'm surprised the locking host didn't give Steve a chance to delete the call out post in his other OP. he said he asked upthread. Most hosts have always done that in the past. But he's getting it out of his system with this one.

It's hardly a surprise to see that type of knowledge flow right over to this newly constructed site, and with all of the derision that they employed against Bernie Sanders supporters on DU to flow over there.

It's also in the DU TOS that implying that Jewish citizens are not loyal to the United States is a very swift (and should be) ban.

Would you like for me to pull up the posts where they were alert stalking people and bragging about it? Out there in public record.

What you guys did over there at HCS was make a fatal mistake - most of you (including you) used your DU screen names. At least you aren't being complete dolts on the other site.

200. I think what has happened here

 

is that it has been rebuked hard, but allowed to continue due to faults in the jury system and tacit approval due to DU leaning toward Hillary Clinton support, that it emboldened the individuals participating in it to the point that they felt they could do no wrong.

They got push back when the self-same jury system began to affect them, and when too many excellent arguments were made to counter their dialogue, it angered them to the point where they had to go be childish and nasty elsewhere. After all, one of them was a member of the conservative cave for a time. Containing such vitriol I am sure is an all day job.

Nonetheless, it has reached a head. The shock and surprise expressed by those who were, in fact, joining right in with it is funny. The *who, me? blink blink* is hilarious. You don't keep company with folks like that, you don't swim in the sewer and take delicious pleasure from it, without knowing exactly what you are doing and coating yourself in.

Easy lesson to learn: You are known by the company you keep. If you stand right along with them while crimes are being committed, and try to help cover up crimes committed by those peers, you are one of them, too.

There are a slew of little sites out there. Care to guess where the BO birther crap started? Nope, not with Mr. Trump.

It started at a site like that one. In fact, it was stated by a HRC supporter in 2008, a close one, and a family friend. You heard of Sydney Blumenthal I am sure. I would not want hm in my state department either if I were POTUS.

http://www.politico.com/story/2011/04/birtherism-where-it-all-began-053563

So many reporters are keeping an eye on these sewers waiting for the (we already got them, ah screen caps are just ducky) antisemitic attacks for when they are deployed by the campaign. We kind of expect it at this point.

Something about history if you get me drift.

8. I missed Part 1...

... but it sounds like you're being attacked by someone who's just looking to make trouble for you to get attention for himself. It's sickening that such repulsive sociopaths manage to slither into positions where they can inflict their malice. People like that defile every principle of common human decency. They not only don't care who they hurt in their craving for self-aggrandizement and dominion over the lives of others, they savor the pain they cause.

I've encountered such people before, and it is not a pleasant experience. It is not possible to rehabilitate a sociopath; they lack the mental faculties to admit wrongdoing. But a sociopath has a well-developed sense of self-preservation. Perhaps this POS needs a little of his own medicine.

My father suffered from dementia, and, in my 69th year, I am beginning to suspect the early effects of it as well, so I am more than sympathetic to your plight.

I'm still on MIRT, but I don't think anyone notices anymore that I refuse to participate. I'm not going to stand shoulder to shoulder with people whose only goal is to drag DU and its members through the gutter for sport just because I support Bernie and they support Hillary.

There is no need for that group to pretend they weren't involved, didn't post the antisemitic posts they made question Bernie's loyalty to the United State, homophobic posts, and other examples of bigotry. They needn't pretend they didn't take a vicious glee in getting Bernie supporters alert stalked into a time out.

It has been posted enough that we all know who did it, who said it, who was responsible for setting up the site, and the same thing is going on at the new site.

I don't give a crap what they say about me - at least they are giving somebody else a rest and besides, it's probably nothing I haven't heard before.

I did get pissed off when they slandered Omaha Steve as a fraudulent disability recipient when the man has done nothing but positive things for DU and has a terminal illness.

14. I get your anger

Although it isn't dementia, I have recently retired at the age of 35 for a severe psychiatric disability. People see you on the outside as being alright and functional, but they don't see you when you are doing bad or when your issues inhibit your activities.

Mental conditions are hard because people who don't suffer from them have no idea how they impact every aspect of a person's life. Actually, I don't even fully get just how much my psychiatric condition impacts every aspect of my life. I can't even fully explain it to someone.

Losing your identity and your ability to work does a lot of damage to a person's self esteem. I used to work as a chemist for the federal government for a number of years. It was a job that I was proud of and my wife and kids were proud of too. You get a certain level of instant clout when you can tell someone that you're a scientist. When people ask your kids what their dad does for a living they can proudly say that he is a scientist. The same with my wife. Now, I'm just disabled. So when people ask what I do now I either lie to them or tell them I don't work because I'm disabled. Physically I'm in great condition. I look young for my age and I'm in great shape. So, when I tell people I'm too disabled to work they think I'm scamming the system. That goes from everyone from random strangers to family members - including my own spouse at times.

It's a touchy subject and I get it. It's hard to not care what others think about you. We are, after all, social animals.

Its a struggle. Do your best to surround yourself with other people in your similar situation. I go to the VA hospital almost daily for either appointments or just to hang out with other veterans who are going through what I'm going through. It helps a lot to have people around you who get it. I don't know if there is anything like that available for you or for civilians, but it can make all the difference in a person's life.

Unfortunately, I think Omaha Steve really needs to document all threads and posts about him, and perhaps his friends too for him, in case someone takes this on-line stalking off line or in some other way ramps up the aggression. Federal cyberstalking laws are in place, and more states are passing civil and criminal cyberstalking and cyberharrassment laws every year -- and beefing up the ones they have.

An interesting coincidence I noticed at DU's brother site, discussionist.

The site currently in contention, is being promoted at discussionist as a parody of DU site. The poster promoting it goes by the moniker gr8daze.

Being the curious little pain in the ass I am, I googled around a bit and found an interesting email address using the same moniker.

The coincidence is that the email address (gr8daze@<domain name> was attached to a domain registration in 2011, as the contact email address, for DUISNOTFORREALDEMOCRATS.COM registered under the auspices of People for Free Democracy in Washington State.

The poster of the same name denies ownership of this latest "parody of DU" site in a thread up at discussionist.

The same moniker also shows up at reddit with a few posts attacking Bernie Sanders.

Just coincidences. And innuendo. But I found it interesting.

I won't include links here as the information is available on the internet via the various Who Is services for domain registration services.

Oh, and a quick read of the "about us" page at said site currently in contention, reads like the whinings of a petulant 12-year-old after his mother grounded him for not doing his chores.

Evidence of what? Use of an avatar? Uh....





Here's the one I used to use:

(currently used by niyad who isn't me)

My apologies. All I see you providing evidence for, is that someone who wants to stir up shit knows how to copy/paste/link to an online image and that the image is ~on this site~ associated with the DUer known as Aerows, beam me up scottie, and/or Cerridwen (or niyad).

Yeah, because someone wanting to create dissent on DU would not stoop to "identifying" themselves as a poster from DU.

As a matter of fact, someone else here is currently using the same avatar as I currently use. They're just part of the "stock" avatars available on this board. As you can see by my use of bmus', it's also possible to grab an image from elsewhere and post here.

Hell, for that matter, since I have no trademark/copyright on my username, I'm pretty sure you can find posters using the same name around the internet. They're not me, btw, unless of course it's an old one from the 90s in which case it might be me; but, please ask me to confirm. But, nowadays, I use Cerridwen only here on DU. I could however, were I the type, pop on over to any website and use "Aerows," "beam me up scottie," "niyad," or pretty much any name that isn't already in use on that site.

Seriously. Use of an avatar (or a username) means...well, not much. It does however help catapult rumor and innuendo; something I made a point of noting in my own original post in this thread.

I can't tell who did this shit; not for certain. Neither can most anyone else here on DU, over at discussionist, or hell, even conservative cave and other anti-Democrat sites - without actual proof; receipt for domain registration, an on-line admission with verifiable proof that the poster is who they say they are, etc.

Everything else, including my own original reply in this thread, is nothing more than supposition.

I'm starting to regret that I bothered since it's apparently going to be used to create yet more innuendo against people on this board.

114. Oh, I'm not insinuating.

 

I'm stating it flat out.

That is a very specific avatar that is used to mock BMUS. It's well known that Bains has issues with BMUS. Funny it has never showed up anywhere else (and since you understand whois, you can verify that it is only showing up in places where DUers congregate - if by chance you do not know how, I can help you).

For that to suddenly show up at a site that parodies DU members, specifically Bernie Sanders supporters to a degree that someone who is an outsider would probably not grasp, not to mention some other evidence that is laying around, their knowledge of MIRT, and clear knowledge of the hosting process...

If you consider all of that, not to mention everything that went on with the HCS site and another site hosted by a DUer that they also were idiotic enough to use their DU names on... If you consider all of that coincidence?

To paraphrase:

Once is an accident. Twice is coincidence. Three times is deliberate

Sorry, my friend. I absolutely do not buy that this is a site created by anyone other than the specific subset of DUers that have already been implicated, and the others that also will be.

I don't like mean people, either. I am unphased by attacks directed at me, because I don't give a shit. When they start aiming at the memory of Jackpine Radical, people like Omaha Steve who has contributed so much to our site and California Peggy who has never said a cross word to anyone on DU, I do give a shit.

Sunlight is the best disinfectant, and a site that uses avatars specifically to mock African Americans and Jews is a site that really needs some sunlight.

Take that as you will.

There is no-one who hates certain DU'ers here to that extent and has as much knowledge of them as one group. To think that anyone else would spend that much time and have so much detailed information on them isn't realistic. The Cave already has its own 'Dumpster' site where this sort of thing goes on all the time, why create another? People on Discussionist don't really even give a shit about posters here - they're quite happy having each other to do whatever with, and right out in the open. The fact that the vile post re Steve's disability was removed after such outrage here and now that a certain anti-Semitic avatar has been changed says a lot. Right-wingers with no association to this site wouldn't give a crap about doing that.

100. Thanks. I don't like mean people. (edited)

I don't like mean people and I find those who think tearing down others in order to make themselves or "their team" look "better/stronger/more worthy" to be juvenile and bullies. (Definition #3 of juvenile). Regardless of who you support, attacking others for that support makes us no better than bullies on a playground - in ~my~ opinion (ymmv).

It's why I stayed away from the DU primaries before and do so as much as is possible now. I despise repubs/rwers/their useful idiots/etc., and I'm not about to come onto a public message board and help them tear down the left. They have a well funded and long established Whirlitzer of their own and they don't need my help.

Attacking another person in the name of any candidate is what I expect from r/w abusers, liars, and bullies. That people seem to forget the internet has tons of those types of liars, bullies, and shit-stirrers who enjoy trolling message boards for the sole purpose of watching each "side" tear each other apart, always confuses the hell out of me. How the hell do you post on the internet for any length of time and not recognize that trolls and trouble-makers exist?

Okay. Sorry. I needed to vent. Thanks for providing the impetus for me to lance the boil - so to speak.



(edited to add: That does not mean, however, that I will not be mean back if lied to (or about) or attacked. If someone is physically or virtually "punching me in the face" I will not "turn the other cheek." It's not a perfect response and these past months I've taken to just "walking away."

102. Since I've been on MIRT I've gotten to see how the trolls operate, and how many there are.

I was floored by the sheer volume and by their dedication. It's quite eye opening to say the least.

No problem, venting is healthy!

140. So, that same person is a member of MIRT - (PeekABoo, I see you)

and confirms my suspicion that person as well as a few others are DU's actual malicious intruders. Somehow they made it past MIRT and have BECOME MIRT. They are now in a position to decide who gets to stay and who has to go when a newbie first signs up. That's a tremendous amount of power entrusted by the owners. I take that responsibility seriously and have been very mindful of not allowing biases to control my decisions when agreeing to ban someone.

Unfortunately, on a few occasions, I've seen a handful of people (the same ones every time) swarm a newly signed-up Bernie supporter, and they all agree with each other and say that person is a troll. Several others have disagreed and were able to stop the, shall we say, process.

One wrote on JackassRadical:

I have to say, I'm pretty good at this sort of thing. I've got a couple of sidekicks who will pitch in to keep things in order and lock up any "nuisance" posts while making sure all of the "substantive" discussion flows freely.

Written by a Jackass member


Another Jackass wrote:

Ha ha what happens in Mirt does not stay in Mirt. LOL!


Those two comments tell you all you need to know about what is happening here. They describe exactly what I'm seeing in MIRT and am actually stunned that the owners don't do something about this and restore a little dignity and respect to the place. They're letting these people destroy what was once a great place to come, and I'm sure driving people away in droves. They're drunk with the power given to them, and running roughshod over long time, decent members. How on earth can that be good for business? It's foolish to think members will just hang around and take that kind of abuse.

When they go there and begin to mock dead DU'ers and mock disabled DU'ers, it's past time to fucking do something.

OmahaSteve, I can't express how very sorry I was to see you mocked by these people. My father is also suffering from dementia, and for one to berate someone with ANY disease, has to be completely deranged. And California Peggy, one of the sweetest ladies on the entire internet and someone I consider a dear friend, doesn't deserve this kind of ridicule. It's getting embarrassing to be a member of this dank place.

not the DNC, the DLC... and they are tied to the hip to the HRC campaign... that explains some of it. Though there is life after the 2016 campaign, but at times I wonder if the owners even will continue iwht DU. DI was third way triangulation and has failed miserably, since that is oh so 1990s.

And yes, those posters, they are not in the league of a Karl Rove, but hell they are trying.

147. It has been around 4 months that MIRT has been completely infiltrated.

 

You had better not ban someone that is a likely Hillary Clinton supporter, or you will get called every name in the book, even if that poster is plainly trolling. I had one complain - quite vociferously and insultingly - that banning someone when "Everyone is asleep" didn't give them adequate time to put their two cents in.

Oh. I was unaware that there are only 4 time zones in the world, and that we don't have anybody in the other 20.

Such stupidity as that is but an example.

Hey, I've done my best to stay on the civil side, and if you will notice, I have said nothing but repeated their own posts back at them, used the things they say to illustrate it.

I will shoot you a PM, however, as to what I believe is a partial reason for this lax treatment of the Pantsuit Troops.

206. Wow. I have missed a lot. Very sad.

I hate DU during primaries. I still remember the self-exile of Kephra for a couple of months when he couldn't take the constant swarms from one group of supporters against other supporters. He came back, but sadly he wasn't for this life much longer - and we lost him first to the ugly behavior here, and then when that settled down, we lost him for real.

Reading this thread is confusing for one doing light DU reading (the dynamic isn't confusing but the terms - what is a BMU for example?), and very sad. The term devolution dynamics comes to mind.

*Sigh*

Btw, hi Oilwellian - it has been awhile.

187. One more last post before I go...

That thread does not tell you who it is. I was accused in that thread to be this Gr8Daze person and also accused of creating the JackAss site.

For the record, I did not know about that thread until I received a pm here this morning. I have now registered at DI and responded in that thread defending myself from lies about me.

I am here and now stating that I HAVE ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH THE JACKASS SITE. I did not create it, nor do I promote it or participate in it. Nor do I even like or agree with that site. It is not my style and never will be. Nor do I have any socks at DI or here....or any other place...I have nothing to do with any of that.

I would like to thank those accusing me..... of finally making me decide to walk away from all the negativity and hate here. To make personal attacks on me and smear me with lies is just one step too far.

I have been bullied to the point that it's just now worth it anymore. I am taking a break from here for awhile. Best of luck to you all....and to those of you accusing me, shame on you....I hope it made you feel better to attack someone who had not one fucking thing to do with it.

After what was posted at http://hillaryclintonsupporters.com/forum/index.php by folks like you and others, you now got a reputation and not precisely a nice one.

As to the bullied, cry me a fucking river, given the bullying you and your crew have done for years on people like me.

Now I also want you to chew on this, that site I just linked to, has burned many bridges here. That you see behind you, is a nuclear wasteland.

And if it is not you posting at that jackass site, or doing a thing about it. I am sorry for suspecting you were involved. My apologies. I also will add, this is far more than you will ever do.But I mean it, my apologies.

156. To All in this thread, and especially to you, Dear OmahaSteve

 

that we respect, there are some sorry individuals casting aspersions and being general jackasses.

For those that have slandered, mocked or reviled us, let me offer one sentiment:



Everybody in this thread might get their chance in the "spotlight" at the various DUer mock sites. I truly consider it an opportunity and honor for all of us that are mocked, belittled, and slandered. Please, come on back with something better, because that has done exactly nothing.

I don't think you have anywhere near the courage, the intelligence, the wisdom or the spirit to do a goddamn thing besides piddle in your pants in fear somewhere else.

Pick on us, we entreat - you are leaving somebody else alone. We can take it, and we, as we have all illustrated in this thread, are not afraid to hand it right back.

It keeps you in shape.

Gauntlet Thrown. Step up to the plate. You must know already that the whole of you are about to be unmasked. Step up and claim it.
