I put the laughy face but all too true.... and I’m a huge satire fan thanks to MAD and National Lampoon.

When I need a sample name for an example I often go with Roger Kaputnik.

When Ike Jackson himself is captured on a video making wildly inappropriate comments to HS students, then IMO the jury is not still out. The one video alone should have resulted in him being released

I reported to several sources and nothing was done.  I was threatened and had to get my attorney involved.  I definitely don’t feel responsible that this was person was allowed to continue in drum cor

People, please.   Can you stick to the topic,  which is the allegations against Ike Jackson?   You are wasting a lot of other people's time who are trying to find the actual topic info, with this nons

It was totally appropriate.  There's laughing at a person's situation, and then there's laughing at the situation to ease the tension.

Considering the extent to which these boards have hashed out the accusation list, a little levity is perfectly appropriate. 

Newer members are encouraged to read for several days or weeks to better understand the dynamic of the regular posters.

 

I am the OP and I approve of this post.

Mod hat here:

Political post removed. Please refrain from making political commentary. I think we all know by now how to edit ourselves in that area.

Who tried to ruin the thread with political commentary? WTF :whistle:

(I hope that WTF can be used in the forum considering Whiskey Tango Foxtrot is used)

Not new to Social Media. The humor here was not appropriate. 

Everyone are not in the loop for your side subject. 

Some of the humor on DCP doesn't align well with my tastes. But it doesn't have to. It is a social media platform, a forum for all kinds of commentary related to drum corps (except political stuff). Some posters are really thoughtful, @N.E. Brigand usually among them, others not so much.

Many posts require a background in the subject I don't have. And that's fine, too. I sometimes dig more deeply on my own. No one is required to educated me about the experiences or knowledge framing the context for their posts, however. That's for college term papers, not an online forum.

I'd quickly go nuts demanding good critical thinking in everything I read on DCP. Or bothering to point out every instance where I think critical thinking is lacking.

And I am glad others are not constantly pointing out my own flaws. (Assuming I had some.)

Too be fair, satire and irony are dead. It’s difficult to distinguish between some current events and headlines from The Onion. 

I don't agree.  I think satire and irony are flourishing.  Traditional sources have changed though.

Social Media is an incredible source.  While everyone likes to complain about it, I see so many things that make me laugh.

There are some very funny commentators out there.

I will agree with you. Satire and irony are doing well. It's quality journalism that has died.

If you care to pm me some of your faves I would like that. I used to love satire but it’s just no longer enjoyable for me. Sarah Cooper has been a bright spot.
