Gloria.tv And Coronavirus: Huge Amount Of Traffic, Standstill in Donations

Hey, Debbie? It's me, The Lord!"

Happy sequester, isolation, quarantine…. shelter in place day, y'all. I have been hiding under the bed hoping the Coronavirus doesn’t find me. Fortunately we still have the entertainment of GTV to sustain us during these trying times.

What kind of entertainment? 🤪

Well there’s the loony individual who feels obligated to repeatedly post the GTV icons which are then enlarged on the recent comments page. Although it stopped being “cute” months ago, it succeeds in making GTV look like Ding-Dong Kiddie School. 🤪

Then we have an individual who claims to be visually impaired so he must make all his postings in all caps. I don’t have to tell anyone how annoying this is to everyone except him. The problem is that if he truly was visually impaired he would not be able to read the original post that he is responding to simply because those posts are all made in non-capital letters. Then of course there are assorted individuals who occasionally drop by to make their crucial post repeated and repeated and repeated on multiple threads on multiple days in a row. What this obsessive individual doesn’t realize is that their “crucial post” is crucial to them alone and not to the majority of readers at GTV. Yet, here they are. 😤

A few members, including both of you, are insightful and provide comments and post articles which are interesting but the majority here are an assortment of dim bulbs, mentally handicapped, stunads, challenged individuals who have difficulty in making posts longer than one sentence in length or they will cut and copy longer posts from external sources.

Those are my thoughts for the day. 😎
-------------------------------
One last thing but the most important. Overall, the incessant nearly palpable negativity of many - perhaps most - posters at GTV is overwhelming. Are we not called to be a glass half-full joyous people?

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is, charity, joy, peace, patience, benignity, goodness, longanimity, 23 Mildness, faith, modesty, continency, chastity. Against such there is no law.

Vile little creatures. Now that I think of it, I regret not familiarizing Thors Catholic Hammer to their dangers. "They're Bergoglians, Thor. Milions of microscopic Bergoglians, they're covered in germs and they crawl on your eyelashes when you sleep.".

"Fortunately we still have the entertainment of GTV to sustain us during these trying times."

...and YouTube, as the "scholarship" of many users here demonstrates. :D

Here's an idea... Next time you see the "visually impaired" user, pass along this handy page

www.health.ny.gov/help/text_size.htm

I sometimes magnify pages myself. Not because I'm visually impaired but because some sites are optimized for Mac users. They favor the Mac visual aesthetic of all-white with faint grey lettering, invariably at exceptionally small point sizes. The combination always has me magnifying the page. Maybe those tiny font sizes look "cool" on gigantic Mac monitor resolutions, I dunno.

Personally, perhaps it's uncharity born of bitter experience, I suspect the user is employing Thor's Rhetorical Trick #46: The Heavy Headlines. It's a "visual soundbyte" to make their comments "stand out" in a discussion.

While I'm not familiar with everyone (especially in the foreign language section) there are (or were) at least two users notably obsessed with repeating themselves: "Crackers The Parrot" and "The Town of Coimbra (Portugal)". The latter was just noise, the former insufferable.

I'm delighted and flattered you count me an insightful user. Jungereld certainly is.

"Overall, the incessant nearly palpable negativity of many - perhaps most - posters at GTV is overwhelming."

I can be guilty of that, won't deny it. GTV has been an eye-opener for me and I can't say I always like what I see, either in the Church or her flock.

"Are we not called to be a glass half-full joyous people?"

Yes, yes we are. That's a good point, and a good quote from Scripture.

Please take it easy, Holy Cannoli. Stay strong! (physically and emotionally).

@Ultraviolet
Check in any Catholic (mind you) catechism/moral theology book what "charity" is. Do not mock it and do not take pride for charity.
Ultraviolet
I wasn't mocking it. Do I have to dissect another Merriam-Webster definition for you, elbow?

As for pride, well, that's a sin I commit regularly, especially after I've beaten the equally prideful. :-) Then they contribute to my sin of pride by following me around trying for a re-match. That's what losers do, specifically sore losers. It's as much a concession of defeat as any other.

That's not the point at all but due to your unsound pedigree I wouldn't expect you to understand. 🤪

Don Reto Nay the point is " they shall deceive the very elect." (Churchmen are not excluded)
Don Reto Nay
Nevertheless, Christ has a point there, I believe.

This is sacrilegious. It is very disrespectful to Christ using him as a joke in a comic.

Is this some Jim Caviezel fan-art? Looks a lot like him. :)
Jungerheld
I have a feeling this art predates him by quite a bit.
