KORP=ATTENTION WHORE We've got to stop feeding them Hey everyone.
It seems like we are spending waaaaay to much time on the korp.
We were told in the beginning about the two wolves, and how the one that wins is the one we feed. We were reminded of that yesterday by 2c.
Despite that, there are a few people who will not let go.
WE HAVE TO STOP WITH THE KORP AND START DOING WHAT WE ARE HERE TO DO! RECRUIT OTHERS AND GET THEM UP TO SPEED!
I think we all agree that we shape the game with our attention and ideas. If you want this to be all about the korp and consumerism, then by all means, go ahead, but count me out.
If we can stop the nonsense about infiltrating the korp, and trying to figure them out, and start getting back to what we were doing well before, we will be much better off.
At this point it seems like there is ONE indicator that someone is a korp plant, they keep talking about them! They will drive the focus of the group towards the korp time after time. Don't be lead like cattle. Ignore it all.
Antics like sending them kittens is not as potent as ignoring them. If we are doing that, we are still giving them attention, just like they want.
If you really want to piss them off, act like they are not even part of the game, and ignore them. They only have as much influence as we give them.
I'm not trying to ruffle feathers, this is just how I see it.
P.S. I know that this is a bit hypocritical to say not to talk about the korp while talking about the korp but I just wanted to say this once and leave it be.

We will destroy them with blue teddy bears and love!!! Agree with metabolic. Focus on the beauty and good of what we are partaking in. Don't let paranoia drive us apart and treasure every moment of this experience and of life as a whole. Sorry to be so deep today but my roommates cat died and it reminded me that we're not guaranteed to live to see 11/11/07, so lets love and remember above all the true themes of the Work at Hand.

Metabolic I have one thing to say
ok, I actually have more..... I posted a bulliten about this the other day......
Why waste my time and yours validating their existence and fueling their fire?
A fire cannot burn without oxygen, a poser's oxygen is attention. Take away the attention and the poser flickers out like a flame.
I was gonna take over the world, but I got distracted by something shiney.

2C said being goofy with them drives them crazy.
I'm gonna do that. But aside from that, yeah, I'm definitely not paying them any mind.

I completely understand the spirit behind the idea, and I love the mischief. But I think of The Korporation as a little kid, jumping up and down yelling "Look at me! Look at me!" Whether someone watches and applauds, his mother yells at him to stop, or kids laugh at him, he's still getting attention.
(and to follow up...)

We will frequently do things to see who is paying attention and who isn't. You can quote me on that. =)
