    QUERIES
  1. What do you need?
  2. How do I make it good?
  3. What happens next?
  4. What do you already have?
  5. Can we do something twice?
  6. Who can help me?

The F Plus is very much a collaborate effort, and no single human being should be responsible for sifting through every polyamorous furry neo-pagan poetry slam out there. What I’m saying is: There’s a lot of terrible on this internet, and if we’re going to find the most remarkable bits, we’re gonna need to collaborate.

This is where you come in. Any and all listeners are encouraged to provide us with content for an upcoming episode. And in return, we’ll namedrop you and provide a link to something if you like... Look, I know it’s not a particularly enticing quid pro quo, but we’re asking you to spend some time trolling through the writings of lunatics in order to mine out the best bits to present to the public. If you don’t think that kind of thing is its own reward, maybe you’re just not cut out for this line of work. Maybe you should just go.

...

Oh, thank christ you’re still here. Okay, let me tell you how to put this thing together.

SO, WHAT DO YOU NEED FROM ME?

What I need from you is a document where you provide links to the content worth reading in its natural habitat, as well as pasting in the relevant content itself, so we can see it at a glance as well as save the material if it gets scoured off the site in a rare but unfortunate demonstration of good thinking. I need you to put that document together in Google Drive and then, once you’re happy with it, share the document with This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

HOW DO I MAKE SOMETHING THAT WILL GET READ?

Okay, at this point, I could offer you all sorts of advice as far as the specifics that we’re looking for in a really good recording document, but fortunately I don’t have to, because in addition to producing well over two dozen episodes’ worth of content for the podcast, everyone’s favorite Finn Montrith has done the service of writing a guide on how to create a really good document.

So this is a link to The Definitive Guide To F Plus Content, and you should absolutely take the time. Montrith managed to convince us to do an episode about people having sex with bugs, so clearly she’s got some insight as to how to do these things.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER I SUBMIT CONTENT?

After sharing your document with This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it , he’ll add it to a spreadsheet of all available content. This is a private spreadsheet that all the ridiculists have access to, and they’re able to peruse the content at their leisure and, after browsing, they’ll give the content a score. This ends up serving as sort of a Top of the Pops system where we know what’s charting well and what there’s a lot of interest in reading next.

Please do be aware that this process can take some time, and the final decision as to what we’re going to read is based on a confluence of factors, some of them whimsical.

WHAT KIND OF CONTENT HAS ALREADY BEEN SUBMITTED?

You wanna know the troubles we’ve seen? Fortunately for you, we’ve set up this spreadsheet to show you that very thing.

The Green section on the left is everything that has been submitted and is currently being examined by the ridiculists. Everything in green is a potential episode. The red stuff on the right is all content that has been submitted but for one reason or another we didn’t decide to run with. If you want to submit any of the content in the red section, I think you’d probably want to think twice about that. Maybe your content will be way better than the content someone else found, but I’m not recommending you try. And if we’re talking about Flat Earth Society? Please do not bother. Flat Earth Society has been submitted almost a dozen times. Flat Earth Society is why we made the rejected list public in the first place.

DO YOU GUYS GO BACK TO PLACES?

We have, and given the right encouragement, we will again. The thing is though, everything being equal we’ll likely pick a site we’ve never gone to before over a site we’ve already been to and liked. So if you want to encourage us to go back to Conservapedia to see the new insanity there, you’re certainly welcome to put a doc together, but please make sure we’re learning something new the second time around.

I’D REALLY LIKE SOME HELP PUTTING THIS DOCUMENT TOGETHER.

Of course, plenty more before you have needed the same thing, even if it’s trying to just ask like-minded people if they also think what you’re looking at is as funny as you seem to find it. And we’ve set up this section on ballp.it just for that very purpose.

Here you can start a thread about the topic you’re trying to put together, and hopefully someone will be there to collaborate with you.
Note: The “Let’s make that an episode” subforum is viewable to members only. If the link above does not work, please make an account and the subforum will be visible.

Quoting dodoman1:
And thus one of the dangers of atrocity tourism becomes apparent: Applying Internet lunatic logic to actual things that matter.

It's not just atrocity tourism, it's the internet itself. Once the real world becomes a reflection of the internet to you instead of the other way around you need to step back and take a look at yourself. "Oh, those feminists from the 70s are like the tumblr SJWs I read, but in some sort of weird reverse sequence of time!"

Actually if you use the term "tumblr feminist from 1972" to refer to second wavers you probably should just forget about the doc and go outside. You're suffering from internet poisoning.

Winston Churchill was a 4Channer from the 1950s.
William J Simmons, Redditor from 1915.
Saladin, LiveJournal member, 1100s.
Marie Curie, Weird Twitter, 1923.

Well, after hearing this I'm just aching to take part in your crusade against anti-porn feminists!

Seriously dude, if this topic is so important to you just make a doc. If the ridiculists think it's any good it will get read, and if not then too bad. Arguing in the comments section is not going to accomplish anything.

What you personally watch and what is popular can be two different things. There might be plenty wrong with that womans views and studies but your comment stuck out to me.

Here's another quote from a different lady, Gail Dines who, being against Pornography is an expert on the subject. Her scientific study found that "From studying thousands of porn films and images Dines found that the most popular acts depicted in internet porn include vaginal, oral and anal penetration by three or more men at the same time; double anal; double vaginal; a female gagging from having a penis thrust into her throat; and ejaculation in a woman's face, eyes and mouth."

I dunno about you but of the hundreds of porns I've seen, most of them are much more tame than that.

Oh and also she apparently interviewed a bunch of convicted child rapists (which ones?) :"What they said to me was they got bored with 'regular' porn and wanted something fresh. They were horrified at the idea of sex with a prepubescent child initially but within six months they had all raped a child."

If you view porn, you are a ticking kid rape time bomb.

So, basically, to her, if you consume pornography you are directly funding the human sex slave trade.

I know, I know, but, like I said, "black and white". People aren't perfect.
And others ( not me! ) would label you as the social justice warrior for not agreeing with her views of the transgendered.
Think of the episode of the cartoonists and cartoon historians, if you want a less controversial example. John K. may have been a shit with a large ego, but he was influential to a lot people in animation and cartooning, many of them don't agree with his personality or politics at all! Heck, I'm sure more than one gay or lesbian person has been influenced by Doug TenNapel. This has derailed from your comment by a lot, but I think you can see what I'm getting at..?

This same person was quoted, on the subject of a transgendered performer at a conference she attended, that they were "an opportunist, an infiltrator, and a destroyer--with the mentality of a rapist."

She also has been quoted as saying “Pornography is the theory, rape is the practice.” She even goes so far as to say that "What we know now is that there is one interrelated enterprise of sexual exploitation. Its tentacles connect the vast global business of pornography, the prostitution industry itself, and the local, regional, and global sex trafficking networks."

So, basically, to her, if you consume pornography you are directly funding the human sex slave trade.

hey guys would anyone be interested in perhaps reading a tumblr feminist from 1972?

Hey now, she's done some shit:
Quoting wikipedia:
She founded or co-founded the Feminist Women's Health Network, the National Battered Women's Refuge Network, Media Women, the National Network of Rape Crisis Centers, the Feminist Writers' Guild, the Women's Foreign Policy Council, the National Museum of Women in the Arts, the Sisterhood Is Global Institute, GlobalSister.org, and Greenstone Women's Radio Network.

She also apparently cares about black women, something I've heard ( from feminists ) wasn't common back in the second wave.

Things aren't as black and white, dumb and smart, SJW and FYGM* as a lot of people would like to think.
* now to kick myself for using two highly retarded acronyms.

hey guys would anyone be interested in perhaps reading a tumblr feminist from 1972? because I just googled the first poem i could find from renowned anti-porn legislator/femi nist Robin Morgan and it's something fucking else.

choice exerpt:
I’m tired of listing your triumph, our oppression,
especially tonight, while two men whom I like –
one of whom I live with, father of my child, and
claim to be in life-giving, death-serious struggle with –
while you two sit at the kitchen table dancing
an ornate ritual of what you think passes for struggle
which fools nobody. Your shared oppression, grief,
and love as effeminists in a burning patriarchal world
still cannot cut through power plays of maleness.

Really really exemplifies the "4 legs good, 2 legs bad" mentality so pervasive in all social justice "movements" today.

Basically, the only people who'd even be able to appreciate the episode's subject would be weirdly judgemental computer nerds. 95% of the listeners (and that's being generous) wouldn't know the difference between a community of ADAM fans and a community of C64 fans, and "people liking an old computer" hardly deserves an episode.

the adam users groups reads sort of like a soylent green story where people are going about their normal lives and yet they CANT STOP TALKING bout this computer that, at the time they posted these articles in 1985, was already obsolete. and they go on for years. there are definitely some laughs to be had.

Literally every old computer and game console has some sort of online following. If you want an episode on the ADAM fans because they're nostalgic for a lame computer, why not the PC Jr. or Aquarius? But at that point you have to draw some kind of arbitrary line between "classic" and "shitty" old computers, and anyone who'd care enough about how other people had the wrong computer as a kid to make that kind of distinction would probably deserve their own episode anyway.

hey guys would anyone be ineterested in a Colecovision ADAM enthusiasts episode? I've been doing some research bc i bought one at a yard sale on a hunch and there's a devoted following dedicated to this 30 year old computer that is less powerful than my phone. It's the most absurd shit I've seen in a while.

Nostalgia can be kinda weird and silly, but it's hardly worth mocking. Just let them have their fun.
