Moby - why did you delete your youtube videos? Did they essentially confirm your Russophobia?

Never one for facts, Rosco ( in more ways that one  - in this case ) ... *I* didn't delete any video ..  :coffeeread:

So I assume that means you're also under adult supervision and moderation at Youtube too?  :coffeeread:

Right, because Gorbatchev was such a hit with the Russian people. Or Jeltsin... or any of the other leaders that were not seen as 'strong' by the Russian people.


Gorbachev was very unpopular with hardline communists, members of the Communist party (those who missed out on the Yeltsin's fire sale) and other people with government perks.  They were of course not very happy. However, if not for him, there would still be cold war, and you guys wouldn't be married to a Russian. By the time Gorby came to power the economy was collapsing. People living in Moscow didn't see it because the Moscow economy was propped at the expense of other regions. People in Siberia lived on food rations. Was it 20 g meat/10 g butter per day for one person? I can;t remember now. Now I walk into a grocery store in Siberia, it's better than anything I see in Canada.

I disagree with you.

Gorbachev and Yakovlev (the architect of so called "perestroika") wanted to build a better socialist society, not dismantle it.   Every "event" where he met with the "man in the street" was preplanned, with nomenklatura or apparatchiks (evident by their dress).  The purpose of so called "glasnost'" was to draw out those who did not conform to Bolshevik ideology in thought.  The CPSU was planning a Pinochet type regime.

The person who really caused the collapse of the USSR was Yeltsin, with his criticism of party appartchiks, and going out on the streets when Gorbachev was arrested.  No Yeltsin, and things would have returned, at least momentarily, to previous periods of arbitrary arrest, imprisonment, and repression.

Probably more a case of, the person who posted the video was not Moby, but one of the players/makers of the video who, after a desperate phone call from his mobyship, removed the video..

One of the signs of a sociopath is that they find it hard to relate to individuals. They can be pleasant and manipulative but it is a practiced act, a charade, not innate.

Why do I mention it now, here?

Well, just above we see a poster who is unable to distinguish between a person writing (speaking) about himself and a person writing about others. For the sociopath, the two are very hard to tell apart. We see that here in the words posted by the forum indigent.

Whether Yeltsin was in control of everything or not is not, and was not, the point being made. I was referring to how many, perhaps a majority, of Russians perceive the fellow in the context of what they know of their lives and the situation of their country and nations.

While I am sure that you might soon tell us that you know of some invented personal connection presented as an authority who might differ in her opinion to millions of Russians such a claim does not in any way alter the opinions of those millions.

Word. Take Moby out back the woodshed and whoop that boy w’ sum tree branches his bare ass!  :laugh:  tiphat

On a couple points in this thread we discuss The Soviet/Russian Whitbread entry Fazisi from way back when.

Came across an article > http://sailingmagazine.net/article-1951-the-boat-that-just-wont-die.html <

Spoiler alert no mention or reference to Moby, he is innocent on this matter.

Thanks for this post

I've sent it to two members of Sochi Yacht Club - one of which was a crew member and took over as joint skipper with Skip Novak - after the demise of the original Soviet skipper


She certainly was a good looking / progressive yacht for the era and I hope she can be restored

On March 15th I suggested that I had read - via a link from a Russian - from a Russian forum- that 'Novichok' was designed to be transported as two chemicals - that would be hard to detect if travelling by air ( Binary format )  - that when mixed - make the nerve agent


 Well, now - The BBC seem to have found the same source ...

Some of the agents are also said to be "binary weapons", meaning the nerve agent is typically stored as two less toxic chemical ingredients that are easier to handle.

When these are mixed, they react to produce the active toxic agent which can cause convulsions, shortness of breath, profuse sweating and nausea.

I expect you sent them the link; they'll dutifully report anything Russophobic - true or false - like you.
please tell me where I'm being / have been 'dishonest'?
