Mostly was referring to the articles title by way of the URL. I briefly looked at the article but didn't really read it. I've already read 100 just like it, so whats the point.

I get the feeling there's a... BUNCH... of people out there with nothing to do, and they get up every morning, rub their hands together grinning, saying to themselves, "Who we gonna catch today?" Like they live for no other reason but to point out the racist or homophobic things someone might've ever said on social media. And we're all supposed to follow along and be utterly righteously outraged by it as if the star college quarterback was taking a hard discriminatory stance against those gross disgusting ungodly gay people when he was 14... when it's far more likely that he was just being a typical stupid 14 year old and calling something he didn't like "gay" without considering that one day someone would sift through everything he's ever done actively looking for the slightest reason to be publicly offended. Used to be that suffering was a virtue... but now, it's morphed into the virtue of victimism. The suffering part is irrelevant, just find a way to play the victim.

Why do I always have to be the spoofing police? Why do these cunts pick ME? Am I really that unlikable? Because if that's the case, its more of a complement than a means of trolling me. I'm glad you fuckin' hate me. I'm glad I do that to you. Know that it took such little effort on my part to push you to that point.

Anyway... yeah, some no life fuckin' loser was spoofing both me and [A2W]H3mr0yd on DM, December 11, 2018, at around 3:15pm Eastern. Dickhead doesn't know about IP's apparently. Please see fit to pick an appropriate name for this boogar eating moron since apparently he isn't smart enough to come up with an original one by himself.

#6 seems to be some place in Lawrenceburg Kentucky. No fucking idea why I'd need to hit Kentucky since it should be a straight shot between Atlanta and Dallas. Then again, my info might be wrong. Because #7 has "dal" in it, probably for Dallas, and it's telling me that's in Ireland whilst it's also saying #8 is in Bellevue Washington. ::) Ugh. There's no place to simply put in an IP and find out where the hell it REALLY is anymore is there?

How is it that people who claim to be so left wing in their politics can act so fucking right-wing-ish and ultra-conservative about things on social media? To the aforementioned peoples: Fuck each and every one of you one by one. ::)

Dear Anarchobabe,

I'd like to address your points.

#1, Public education is indoctrination. Eh, yes and no. If you wanna get really technical, ALL education is indoctrination. But when it's fairly widely agreed upon that a private school education is better quality in every measurable way than a public school education... then just how reliable and thorough is your indoctrination really going to be? Perhaps it depends a little more on the naiveté of the average student. And can a natural born idiot really be anything else? Probably not.

#3 and #6, Voting is an act of violence; Authority is an illusion. Maybe these are backwards. It might be more accurate to say that "Voting is an illusion." You see, our system of government is based on the ages old Roman one. Back then, senators were not elected by the people. They were high born folks with wealth, almost always with fathers or grandfathers who were senators. It was a lordship in everything but name. And these select people voted for the chancellor or president. "The Roman senate represents the people!" Uhkay... HOW? And fast-forward 2000 years... shit hasn't changed at all. YOU... are a lowly fuckin' bum. We don't allow YOU PEOPLE to vote for someone as important and prestigious as the president. You vote for a faceless nameless "electorate".... meh, bullshit, let's call it what it really is. Your vote is thrown away, it's a waste of a day, it's a wasted effort, it DOES NOT MATTER.

Furthermore, "Authority is an act of violence." The threat of force and violence is what motivates anyone. We're taught that peaceful protest is the way to get things done. We're shown examples of it like Martin Luther King Jr. But what you're not shown at the same time is all the OTHER race riots where he wasn't there. If you really want the government to notice you and take pause with the crooked shit they're doing... threaten to fucking kill them. Burn their shit down. Kick and beat on their doors with huge crowds holding torches. Violence is not the solution? Bullshit. Violence is the ONLY thing these people understand.

#7 Cops are gang members. Very true. But consider the whole system to be part of that gang as well. Consider the system of doing things in Italy for many centuries. Machiavelli, la cosa nostra. Is it any different from what a formal official government does? A rhetorical question... NO, there is no difference. The only difference between the mobster and the mayor is... circumstance. Both have equal opportunity to be benevolent or corrupt. The real difference is only ONE of them is unfortunate enough to get charged under the RICO statute when they get caught. And that really is a fucking shame if you ask me. With mobsters, you know where they stand. They'll put you in the trunk, drive you to the middle of nowhere, kneel you down, and blow the back of your head off. They're wolves. With mayors and government officials,... they pretend they don't ever cross over into that territory with their actions, you BELIEVE they don't and won't. They are wolves in sheeps clothing. Which is worse? At least the mobster is honest about what he does.

I dunno about locking, but the lagging... yeah, I've noticed it too. Usually my netgraphs got at least 3 to 6 red spikes on the screen at one time, spread out and never constant enough to make red bars, but consistent enough to be VERY annoying, and usually gets worse as population on a server increases. If they claim you're paying for "better" service, I've yet to see evidence of it.

I've also noticed that the admin and quadz avatars don't show up on the forums anymore, haunteds too I believe. Maybe those were loaded into the forums memory and lost during the transitition?

"Those who seek to push hate, division, and violence: You have have no place on our platforms. You have no home here."

One particular comment:
In that case they reeeeally need to delete most of the rap songs on iTunes.....

Burnt. :D

On one hand, I don't really give a TRUE shit about the rights of some racist dingleberries. It's an ideology that just needs to go the fuck away already. And one might say, "Well if you censor that, it sets a precedent for yada yada yada..." But what you may not realize is that the precedent has ALREADY been set. The legal definition for what constitutes a "hate crime" in some places is very broad and ambiguous, usually saying something about "evidence of prejudice while committing an offense". In a way, you could prosecute MOST interpersonal offenses under that.

I can't say I feel these people do these kinds of things because their heart isn't in the right place. They mean well. And a well-meaning idiot can do as much damage as an ill-meaning enemy. I'd wait to see how they enforce that policy before drawing conclusions that they will be some kind of Ayn Rand-ish collectivist dictators repressing freedom of speech. I suspect they have a few bad actors in mind who they want to eliminate from their world. And as part of the terms of service no one is guaranteed a fucking thing ever, right? You pay for it, but if they want to, they can wave a magic wand and make it obsolete to-fucking-morrow, just to be dicks, just to fuck with ONE person, just because. I bought an Xbox, but they can update the shit and change it and fuck it up at will. I can bitch about it... that's really ALL I can do, though.

Society is reaching a tipping point obviously. People are tired of the bullshit in every form. I'm a gun owner, I love guns,... but I also own eyeballs and a brain. I see the shit on the news. Shootings happening all over the fucking place, ridiculous murder rates, robbery with guns. People are getting sick and fucking tired of living like this, always worrying about their safety, wondering when they send their kids off to school in the morning if they'll come home alive. Our track record as a society proves that statistically we are not capable of being responsible gun owners. And yeah, the statistics may prove that it's a very very very small number of fucked up individuals committing these acts, but... that small number is still enough on it's own to warrant deep concern. And it's not even a number. It's PEOPLE. Dead people. People like you. People like me. They had families and friends and shit to do tomorrow. And then someone killed them. To those few people affected by it, it changed their entire world. Is it any wonder they push so hard to do something to change things?

I'd vote against it, and I'd be sad to lose my guns, but if it actually happened... I can't say I couldn't understand the WHY of it.

Michigan VS Texas would've been good also. But that would've left Georgia playing Florida again. Nobody wants to see that.

I kinda would've liked to see Georgia get a 2nd shot at LSU with the same rosters. I'm confident a 2nd whack at them would go VERY differently. Well... not so confident. I just remembered the fake punt from the SEC championship. Kirby Smart is on meth. Any fucking thing could happen.

But Georgia vs Texas isn't the worst matchup. Texas has a shot at winning, believe it or not.

Georgia vs Ohio State or LSU vs Ohio State would've been great. Yet another year Ohio State escapes humiliation at the hands of a capable SEC defense.

you can't reason, with ignorant, stupid, or otherwise biased people.

Sounds like a biased statement. :badgrin:

that's why i like anarchy or minarchy at least. you can do what you want as long as you're not hurting anyone or stealing from them.

That's pretty much what people do right now. I'm not saying I disagree with those political philosophies, but from what you've said, it seems to me that you've only skimmed over the brief synopsis of what those philosophies entail. I'd urge you and anyone else to learn about it EXTENSIVELY before claiming to espouse such a position. You may find that you don't completely agree with it. And at the very least, if you do agree with it, you'll be better prepared to discuss it with people who aren't familiar with it... otherwise you might give them false information about it, or... they might get the impression that one of your opinions about any given topic might represent those political philosophies when they perhaps do not.

Anarchy is bullshit unless you live alone on an island. Governing and committees are necessary. Even prison gangs govern by committee, and they care less about "law and order" than anyone else. Humans are animals, no different from the other hundreds of animals that we watch on nature shows narrated by David Attenborough. The simplest of insects organize. Even the more complex and intelligent animals like wolves hunt in collective packs in order to be more successful and survive. Anarchy simply isn't in our nature. We are a social animal. If that were not true, riots would be far more prevalent and prolonged than they are. Then again, sometimes riot are fairly organized events. Organized protests have the potential to become riots, and those rioters attack property and uniformed police, not each other. Further proof we are an animal with social instincts.

Still... libertarian political philosophies aren't really the problem with video games and Metacritic. The problem is the blurred and now basically NON-EXISTENT line between corporate interests and political interests. Neither one of them respect the institution of democracy and the people. They both view the world as a casino, and they use polls and market research data to basically "count cards" and always have an unfair advantage over the individual who plays the game honestly and fairly. And sometimes they get idiots like video game reviewers to willingly work for them under the pretense that they are helping to change the world for the better.

So true. Those were the days. Back when you bought a VCR with the most number of heads so you could pause the tape on the ever-so-brief breasts scene and see it clearly. If your parents had one of the cheap shitty single head VCR's, it would have a snowy streak through the middle of the picture or flip up and down as bad as the scrambled Playboy channel.

I have been looking for shows that are multi-tasking friendly since I have a ton of crochet projects to complete.

Possibly Seinfeld's Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee ?

I watched his stand up special, Jerry Before Seinfeld, which is a mix of parts from a stand up show he did at a small club in New York City and docu-biography about his early days as a working standup comedian. Really good, one of the best standup specials I've seen lately, and I'm not even a Seinfeld fan.
