The Standard has some self awareness?

The Standard has a Daily Review Post, and end of day open forum:

Daily review is also your post.

This provides Standarnistas the opportunity to review events of the day.  The usual rules of good behaviour apply (see the Policy).

Don’t forget to be kind to each other.

I doubt that lprent came up with that last paragraph.

But does someone at The Standard (whoever put up yesterday’s Daily Review) have some awareness? A sense of self-depracating humour? This was included in the post:

A few Standard regulars are typical ‘Dicks’. They are not likely to recognise themselves in this though perhaps ick should have had a red teeshirt.

Some at The Standard would prefer less ridicicule, less anger, less morons, but they get overshadowed by the noisy minority of Dicks.

    I don’t think it is a minority, anyone who posts there that does not keep to the “Progressive” narrative gets drummed out of that echo chamber

    It’s definitely not Te Reo Putake with any sense of self-awareness. Looks like he’s been on a banning spree.

    Looks like TRP is getting a little sensitive about things, and his banning spree is not over yet going on this chain on Open Mike today (I hope I link it correctly!).
