How many lines didn't he cross ?Who did Trump doxx again?
Here's something you have to understand about troll logic: once you've decided not to give a shit, you just need an excuse. Any excuse will do. Once you recognize this, you see it everywhere on the right.How many lines didn't he cross ?
You do rely on blatant double standards on doxxing (the equivalent to "theirs are terrorists" vs "ours are isolated madmen"), as if the history of gamergate alone didn't show the scale of heinous if not murderous fuckfest along the "culture war" divide. But when, in addition to that, you try to posit some moral high ground on the conservative side's rules of engagement, be it as a premise (they are so noble therefore their trash is to be discarded) or as a conclusion (what trash, there is no trash therefore they are so noble) maybe it's time to contextualise it with the sort of shitbag that you idolize and the carnival of dejection that accompanies him and his minions. Maybe. For perspective and credibility.
You can interpret the reasons in whatever self-absorbed way you want. But it wasn't because you're against doxxing. You made that up for pity points.Couldn't possibly be because I was deemed on the wrong side of history and a number of people have chosen to see anything I say as that in part because I didn't support the "Win by any means" approach some did.
The vast majority don't. You're just using the worst actors to tar everyone else.So why do said left wing outlets happily have writers publishing such peoples details? E.G. Eve Barlow
Sure thing, those two people and their hangers-on are bigger communities than 8chan, 4chan, kiwifarms and Nuremburg Files. Whatever.4 large communities mostly comprised of trolls.
2 people with followings on par with or bigger than said communities normally who are looked on still as good people in the left wing communities and seen in good standing.
There's the difference.
Nah it was very much used as evidence of how I'm evil or some shit because how dare I suggest people deemed bad shouldn't be doxxed.You can interpret the reasons in whatever self-absorbed way you want. But it wasn't because you're against doxxing. You made that up for pity points.
Except there's so many worst actors. Wasn't it like CNN or some shit that threatened to reveal the identity of the Trump clotheslining CNN gif?The vast majority don't. You're just using the worst actors to tar everyone else.
yeh they kind of likely are lolSure thing, those two people and their hangers-on are bigger communities than 8chan, 4chan, kiwifarms and Nuremburg Files. Whatever.
Where? It wasn't on this forum. So where was it, and why is it relevant to us?Nah it was very much used as evidence of how I'm evil or some shit because how dare I suggest people deemed bad shouldn't be doxxed.
K. There's also countless worst actors on the right wing-- do I get to judge you and a bunch of other harmless centre-right forumites because of 'em?Except there's so many worst actors. Wasn't it like CNN or some shit that threatened to reveal the identity of the Trump clotheslining CNN gif?
W/e.yeh they kind of likely are lol
Eh, whenever Dwarvenhobble starts talk about his grievances about online discourse it is usually a sign that the thread is running out of topic to cover.
I don't know if I agree that he was an influence by necessity, other than him being the most popular British fantasy author so Rowling ought to have read him. Or maybe I'm just staring at how tonally different they are and fail to see obvious connections.It's quite amusingly obvious that Terry Pratchett was one of JK Rowling's biggest influences, and also that he didn't like her at all.
No, he'll do that crap when there is something to cover. You should have seen amount of time she tried to derail a thread or throw it off topic, when the actual topic was still going on.Eh, whenever Dwarvenhobble starts talk about his grievances about online discourse it is usually a sign that the thread is running out of topic to cover
I'm not overly versed with Pokemon, but my understanding is that pokemon don't welcome being captured per se, while on the other hand, working with a trainer allows them to gain strength faster. A sort of "if you were good enough to capture me, then you're probably worth teaming up with.Also, pokemons ? I don't know pokemons at all, how does it work ? Willing slavery ? Rebellions ? Rationalizations, spectators outrage ?
Heh, speak for yourself.You don't want peace in WH40k, you don't want civilization in Mad Max, etc. In that kind of universes, something must and will happen to maintain its features. Something will rationalize its permanence. I don't think it's a things that, in itself, tells much about real-world attitudes.
Well that's assuming there's "programming" in the first place, and despite various theories, there's no actual evidence of this.I thought Dobby wasn't under magical restrictions, at least by the time he was at Hogwarts, but he'd been conditioned to obey the rules and hadn't been deprogrammed.
Dem's fighting words, pony!Artemis Fowl is also just not nearly as good. Doesn't have half the charm of the wizarding world and the characters are all annoyingly perfect.
It plays more of a role in tournaments and where overall point tallies are calculated.Only thing about Quidditch that irks me is the Golden Snitch being an instant win condition. Sure catching it can mark end of play but if it’s (significant) point allocation isn’t enough to simply win by highest score then it’s just a mercy killing for your side. Otherwise it seems simple enough.
For that, you deserve 0001.Don't mind me, just snagging that #1000.
...oh don't mind me, I'm just one of those people who's never understood the popularity of the Mighty Ducks movie, who considers Little Giants to be much better, and whose "Mighty Ducks" were the animated cartoon ones.However to me it brings to mind Wizard ice hockey. Compare the function of a quidditch team to like, the Mighty Ducks. You’ve got Goldberg, the goalie. Your beaters are just enforcers Fulton and Portman with the added advantage of having special pucks only they can hit, expressly to clobber other players with. The rest of the team is Charlie, Adam, Jesse and Averman as (I think) the forwards who try and score goals.
Who views people with disabilities as pets?Sounds a lot like only viewing people with learning disabilities as animals or pets...
You know, as someone who's watched the Cursed Child stageplay, you're actually closer to the money than you might imagine...HP has a lot of very weird nicknames for things, I like it for the sheer creativity. My favorite has to be the Moaning Myrtle. The jokes practically make themselves.
If doxxing was the worst of Trump's crimes, we (and by we, I mean the world) would have less to worry about. Alas...Who did Trump doxx again?
This thread's running circles around it.
Connections between Harry Potter and Discworld are pretty spurious. It would take forever to list the differences, so flipping things around, what are the notable similarities?I don't know if I agree that he was an influence by necessity, other than him being the most popular British fantasy author so Rowling ought to have read him. Or maybe I'm just staring at how tonally different they are and fail to see obvious connections.
Both authors forgot they said they supported trans rights.Connections between Harry Potter and Discworld are pretty spurious. It would take forever to list the differences, so flipping things around, what are the notable similarities?
-Both are written by British bestselling authors (Pratchett was the UK's best selling fantasy author until Rowling dethroned him, IIRC)
-Discworld has a wizard school (Unseen University), Harry Potter has a wizard school (Hogwarts) - let's casually ignore that the idea of a wizard school goes at least as far back as Earthsea.
Really, that's about it. Granted, I've read far more HP material than Discworld material (and of said material, rarely been that enamored with it), but really, there's not much linking the two.
