View Full Version : Who is the most eccentric poster on the Phora?

Which of the Phora's luminaries do you find to be most eccentric, iconoclastic or unconventional? My vote hoes to Ixabert for reasons so obvious that they scarcely need explaining, with Julian Lee a close second, because of the bizzare superstitions he apparently sincerely believes in. Mazdak has a distinct creepiness about him, but it comes off cliched and artificial. Please don't mention obvious trolls, as histrionic flamboyance is hardly an uncommon characteristic in the general population.

I would say that Petr is the most eccentric poster. He is truely obsessed with this creationism. I find the guy interesting.

Janus or Julian Lee.

Julian Lee is quite eccentric (in a good way). So is Vindex, although they are both followers of certain traditions, albeit not one's that are popular today.

As for unconventionality, the poster with the most original take on racial issues is probably sprinklehopper.

Janus
12-29-2006, 05:20 AM
Daedalus, Helios Panoptes, and Ixabert are the most eccentric posters.

That it's good for men try to control their generative organs a little bit. For that I am classed "eccentric" here. My views are probably just straightforward Aryan. Keep in mind that the starter of this thread believes that all kinds of mind-messing drugs are safe for you and will lead mankind to Utopia. :snore:

A Methamphetamine Evangelist calling me "superstitious" for studying yogic traditions and enjoying the benefits of moral continence: That is certifiably ass-inine.

Helios is not really "eccentric," I feel. He is unusual for a crystal clear, logical way of communicating that is unvarying. Any extremely intelligent person can seem eccentric to us mediocres. To me, "Vindex" is the biggest oddball in this stew.

Ahknabashi probably is more 'eccentric' than he lets out. Having occult beliefs usually brings that label to a person, or having eccentric personality can bring a person to those beliefs. Either or, maybe it's back and forth.

But do what thou wilt.

As for ixabert, he is from the eccentric dimension; a ball of eccentricic energy that is ever-changing, and despite occasional stabilization and manifestation into the physical realm, can never be contained in a static form. This is perhaps also why he does not masturbate.

It's true Mazdak says things about women that are too harsh. But he is probably just floating polemics, a reaction to the unhappy warpage that feminism (untrammeled female desire) is bringing to society. Even so, his sentiments are common among men. I find his apparent interest in Russian communism much more anomalous.

This from the former "Timothy Leary," a guy who believes we will all arrive at Utopia by purchasing and swallowing brain-distorting drugs from down on the corner. I mean, he apparently sincerely believes in that. And thrashes and trashes if I dare broach classical yoga, traditional virtue, or anything wholesome whatever. Normally I overlook him.

If you're under 30 and a regular here, you're probably a lifelong social misfit never connected to the mainstream long enough to be "alienated" from it.

I never thought of Helios as eccentric until recently, but its only been a mild change. Mazdak seems like the women-hating, old-school, Conan-the-Barbarian watching guy that all of us know in real life. Come to think of it one could probably list off 30-50 damn-straight eccentrics on this forum.

Such honesty is truly eccentric today.

A man who admires Greta Garbo can't be all bad.

Posters like Ixabert and Petr don't really seem eccentric to me at all. In fact, they seem highly typical of their type. Someone who is eccentric should have highly individualized and idiosyncratic ideas and manners of expressing them, whereas they seem to toe their party lines, to use the phrase. If someone was both a transhumanist-eugenicist and a fundamentalist Christian, and had unique arguments for being such, rather than reading and quoting popular transhumanists or Christian authors, than I would say that person is highly eccentric. Granted, I haven't really read much of Ixabert's or Petr's, except where I engaged them. Having uncommon or unpopular ideas may make you a bit eccentric, but the most eccentric though?

It's not an impossible position to come to, if, like I said, you interpret them idiosyncratically. I actually saw a website or person somewhere making this argument, which is why I brought it up. They weren't really 'confusing', but it was indeed eccentric.

And if you're 21 or under and have more than 500 posts logged here, or at any far-right wack- err, I mean "free speech" board.....seek professional help immediately. Now, or you might never get a date!

I guess this describes the majority of the posters here—including me. However, I don’t come here to socialize but merely to discuss certain topics that I do not have a chance or do not feel comfortable to do otherwise.

For example, I do not chat with phora posters on MSN.

Honestly, who isn't eccentric on the Phora? A much better question would be "Who is the most conventional poster on the Phora?" My answer for that question is probably Ugly American or Keystone, who seem to recognize the absurdity without turning into a bomb-throwing (figuratively speaking) radical like me. Sulla seems to not recognize the absurdity as much as buy into it, which would make him 100% conventional IMO. Except for them and a couple others (sorry for not naming all the conventional folks), everyone else (including myself!) I regard as a nut.

I wasn't exactly sure if this question was related to a person's unconventional views making them eccentric or more about them seeming to have a different style of personality, than a lot of people, one that stands out, somehow, but I guess those things kind of go together a lot of the time.

When a man is young, he wants to gain respect by being eccentric. As he gets older, he wants respect but realizes it's not gained through sheer eccentricity. He comes to deplore intentional eccentricity used as a device for attention-getting.

I do not believe that eccentricity gains one respect. It follows quite naturally from certain personality traits.

I mostly agree but I would add this: it's pretty much out of our hands. You can't control what others think of you, or say about you: I think the saddest people on this earth are those so paranoid about fitting in to 'norms' that they'll adopt opinions, attitudes, even entire personas purely for the sake of not making any waves and reinforcing somebody else's status quo.

It's also the #1 reason why rich is better than poor - the rich are more tolerant of, and less-judgmental towards, idiosyncracy - while the poor and especially the middle-class are ever-vigilant to spot it and suppress/destroy it, and almost always for reasons rank with the cloying perfume of bogus morality and phony sanctimony.

Besides, I've yet to encounter a pillar of working-class 'normality' who doesn't genuflect before money and isn't eager to whore himself to those who have lots of it. Sorry, but that's the way it is.

While some rich people are more tolerant of eccentricity, your idea that ordinary people attack the eccentric because of their "bogus morality" and "phony sanctimony" doesn't ring true. It has more to do with the need to insulate the ego, to avoid "contamination" or association with the oddball, the need to feel adequate. Often it depends on very much on the psychology of the middle class and poor people you're among. Folks in the country can be much more tolerant, if they are not under the kind of psychological siege that seems to oppress most people in the city.

Lord Chesterfield's letters cover the issue among the people who style themselves to be "society."

The middle class is trying to maintain its stability that way. Stability is part of what defines the middle class.

I liked that post, Il Ragno. Except for the part classifying the morality of the middle class (all of it?) as "bogus."

Actually that's not quite what I said. Bogus morality refers to just that, it doesn't subsume all concepts of morality.

But since the point's been raised - there's no point in going on and on, as we all do here, re the death of the West and the systemic poisoning of civil society, while pretending that certain portions of it enjoy a force-field of natural immunity from venality, stupidity, cultural amnesia or any of the rest of it.
