Cavalcade of crap, part 4

One more time:




And now, the cavalcade of Flushing crap comes to an end.

As suggested by a commenter, here are photos of what Flushing looked like in 1929 for comparison.

Thank goodness it's come to an end. Too bad it won't be for long!

miracle of miracles. The one in the third photo actually has a lawn!

You should contrast these images with photos of 70 years ago.

Really would drive the point home, painfully.

verdi said...

Contrast it with photos from as recent as 1982
and you'd see quite a change!

Are any of these Asian projects ?

(Just a question...."eamallc".....
don't get your eyebrows in a knot) !

It's not the Flushing I knew. I don't really care who built it - It's just so ugly.

My eyebrows wont get in a knot. I assure you. Why would you even ask such a question? What difference does the ethnicity of the builders/owners of these piles of crap make? Thats the part I dont get.

In any event, you probably wont even see this comment, because the Crapper, who always rails against any form of censorship, decided to censor my previous comments and then conveniently shut down the comments for that post. I exposed who the owners of this blog are, and apparently this embarassed them publicly. Its unfortunate that they have to lurk in the shadows like cowards.

In addition, I looked at the Blogger Content Policy located here:
http://www.blogger.com/content.g
It clearly states that content containing hate is not tolerated. Now, I dont know if this applies strictly to what Crapper puts on, or to the entirety of the blog including comments from viewers. However, I assure you I intend to find out. We cant necessarily censor hate speech, but certainly blogger.com doesnt have to be a forum for it. Again, if the Crapper posts this comment, I would be surprised. If he does, I commend him or her.

EamLLC, I already told you I am not female, and you insisted on "outing" a woman who has nothing to do with the content of comments on this blog. And as far as threatening to tell Google on me, good luck. No one here is promoting hate or violence against anyone, just making observations. As far as censorship goes, I "rail" against government censorship. I am the moderator of this blog and have control over what's posted or not posted. If someone e-mails me in a pleasant way and asks, "would you mind removing a comment" for whatever reason, I almost always do so. But when someone cowardly decides to send in nasty diatribes about comments posted by others, they can go fuck themselves.

Well, Im sorry you feel that way Crapper. This is where I disagree with you.

In essence, you are publishing comments from others that are racist, bigoted and anti semetic in nature. I know that they are not your thoughts, but publishing them is unacceptable. I am not the first person to complain about this. Check the search engines, there are others.

I have many friends who are Asian, Black, Hispanic and a plethora of other nationalities. Therefore, I take offense at anyone who promotes a racist or bigoted agenda. Im sorry I dont "tolerate" it the way you do. There is nothing racist about pointing out that the majority of crap is being built in minority areas. However, to make fun, to belittle, to call racist slurs can not be accepted.
Dont you think Queens Crap would be taken more seriously if you promoted a zero tolerance for such activity?

You should be hearing from Google very soon, I wish you well in making your case. End of conversation.

I have many friends who are Asian, Black, Hispanic and a plethora of other nationalities, too, and they actually make jokes about their own. How do you know that the people posting these comments you find so offensive are not Asian, Black, Hispanic or a plethora of other nationalities? This is an anonymous site. Maybe you should read what the Guyanese gentleman had to say.

I did and couldn't find any.

eamallc - Let the Crapper keep posting the comments. All it does is show any reasonable person who reads them how unimportant this blog really is. If Crapper stopped posting comments from the bigoted and the ignorant, this blog would lose 90% of its comments.

Anonymous said...

There was one comment out of 6 that mentioned race on this post and you decide that 90% of comments on this site are bigoted. Way to do math, genius.

($$$$) ??? said...

Repeat question.....
are any of these Asian projects?

"eamallc"
doesn't seem to be able to make a "point"
in 500 words or less.....just empty threats !

Whew....what tedious endless diatribes
(like pledge week commercials on public radio)!


If you don't like what you read here....
cancel your subscription !

H-m-m-m......eh....."eamallc" ?

I guess you've been"outvoted"
by overwhelming public opinion....
and you can't muzzle it
the way the ink on paper media does!

Anonymous said...

Bottom line.....Flushing is a toilet!

Who made it that way for the past 2 decades ?

That's self apparent !

Notice...
no particular nationality or race has been blamed.

That's up to the resident/readers to decide
as to who's responsible for the current blight.

free speech said...

They may get away with
censoring "Google" in China.....
but I sincerely hope....not here!

Puh..lease!
Your use of the old phrase.....
"some of my best friends" ....are Jewish, Black, etc.

Is this the last bastion of a reverse closet bigot.....
perhaps (???) like yourself....eh...."eamallc" ?

wants to know said...

If this blog is really so unimportant.....
how come so many appear to be reading it
and agreeing with many of the posts ?

"90%" of the audience can't be all "bigots"
(and haven't left yet)
as was implied by the"anonymous" fool
posting further up.
