- keep fanning the flames so they're loud enough and the actual intelligent rational discourse - which the alt-right can't win against - is completely muted behind the noise, and also barely visible on the internet anymore
- the victims whom in otherwise normal conditions would be worth defending/protecting socially and humanely speaking, have now been made to look like authoritatrian villains, 'SJW', and in practice a portion actually become that while they probably would have not gone that far had they smelled the trap, or some other concerned people would have not followed them into that pit
- the aggressors then perversely use the opportunity to play innocent and pose as defenders of freedom - which they of course are absolutely not and actually the worst enemies of by all means

Concise and true.

And so...

So you think the tendency the hard left sometimes has (ie : callout culture without really investigating the case, and which sometime ends up in the health of the person at the center of it to get in danger, when the person is sometimes innocent) is harmless?
Fuuuuuuuuuck this

If you think the hard left are saints and saints only, then you have your head so deep in the sand that it might actually pop up on the other side of the earth

imho, at least some of the "fuck both sides" mentality is quite warranted. in this particular instance, the instigating side was largely people attacking a guy as if he both created and weaponized a slur when he was just trying to do his (nearly thankless, payless) job. a lot of the far left has become vicious, bloodthirsty, and cannibalistic. i think it's unfair to even skew them as "sides" when they're both (sjw and alt-right? whatever you want to call them) slanting toward authoritarianism and making overt gestures to their own sense of morality. i'd argue i'm still inside the far left, but i've watched it drive its own to poverty, extreme marginalization, mental instability, and even suicide. at some point, it seriously becomes disingenuous to suggest that this is all thanks to conservative bigotry & oppression and that there's no inward fault - and that's what leads to us vs. them.

things are so stratified and the actual villains are so far above us, it's probably better to be happy in ignorance and refusal to engage than burning out on a totally engineered war that the reactionaries and rich & powerful win, anyway. imho that's not centrism, it's survival instinct.

It's not even the far-left proper as it would have been described even just a couple decades ago, as in not necessarily leftists, rather they're all kinds of people who have suffered so much from the right's hate they became similarily hateful in reaction, adopting a behaviour similar to the alt-right's at stage 1 of the process, ironically. Most of them have just been conveniently either mingled with the left in the narratives of the alt-right, or opportunely absorbed by actual leftists in politics.

Morti's definitely right in the sense that the right, no, precisely that right that took over the old one, carrying and applying a far-right ideology with a new strategy, were definitely the initiatiors who triggered the mess we've been in for many years now.
And similarily them too don't have much in common with the definition of the right as we knew it not so long ago, proof is that they use literally marxist arguments whenever they feel like if they have the opportunity to gather more supporters.

The core of it all is not politics, it's about fundamental shit like race and sex, things like human rights, democracy etc.
In short it's a challenge to civilization and human society as a whole, on a global scale, and whether we want to keep it together or burn everything.
About half of humanity is stupid enough to risk ruining everything and abandon its freedom and future just for that, and it's clearly engineered by the villains kitten talks about, because they know about half of humanity is stupid enough to fall for their plan thinking they'll be liberated, when it's precipitating their doom.

Tho even the puppeteer villains are slaves to our nature, they appear for reasons. We're too many now for our specie's ability to manage problems, I have no doubt that's the real issue, and we're experiencing something like in the mice utopia experiement; a behavioral sink.
And we conveniently built the internet that's like steroids for our stupidity and madness.
In a similar way that civilizations all end some day, I like to think that somehow what's happening in this 21st century is nature's way to initiate the process to reduce our specie's population but on the global scale, even if that means many other species will suffer, the 'reset' will be beneficiary on the long term, on a scale that's way beyond us.

Well that's all well and good, but know that more moderate righties are saying the exact same thing you just said, but with the coin flipped. "Alt-righters are not part of camp", "they're that way by reaction" etc. That's why I think one can't really ride this angle, IMHO. Anyway, that's not a bad take. I can see some merit in it. especially the internet part.

The point though is that we should all strive to be what I call "360° hitters". And call out bad moves from whatever camp they come from. From the left, from the right, from center. Hell, if an alien race governs us someday, then we shall be critical of thm too. :lol:

Reminder that the progressive and supportive camp will still hate you if you're born with the wrong deviation and they'll disavow you for being evil
It's the same shit, you just shift the window a bit to the left so you can act superior about being progressive or a bit to the right so you can act superior about not being degenerate (read: no one wanted to have sex with you or invited you to parties)

or us vs us but not really us
If you look at the online support groups for "oppressed" people (HAES, incels, autism, LGBT), they all pretty much use the same vocabulary
LGBT people fighting over who's more privileged is hilariously similar to anyone above 6'0 being a "fakecel"

It's a maddening Ouroboros. Rampant bad faith and false flag trolling from nazi LARPers makes the existing woke left fortify themselves against even the slightest red flag to the point of bloodthirst, and sway the more neutral people who have to deal with the hot end of ironic racism towards the woke left. Many in the middle who don't have to deal with the right-wing trolling and question modern woke politics out of sincere curiosity are immediately pegged by the woke left as having malicious intent (or because they're impatient assholes who berate you for not getting with the new times you just heard about) and remorselessly blocked/banned. These ones who are left with a negative first-hand experience find it easier to empathize with or are preyed upon by the seemingly rational folks who just want to defend free speech and fight back against woke insanity, which after a trip down the anti-SJW pipeline will often create another nazi LARPer troll, and then we're back to square one.

This image partially sums it up:
Spoiler: show

It's why I tell anyone who is almost blowing their fuse at someone being so dang uneducated on woke politics that giving them shit for that is how JRPG villains are born.

would like to take a second to stress, here, that this shit is often characterized as only catching people in the middle of a crossfire while it is also ruthlessly imposed upon people who are already in the woke left, as well. our own are eaten as much as - if not more than - bystanders who haven't been recruited in a direction. this going on for so long has led to a generation of now-teenagers who have been groomed by watching years of "social justice" near-exclusively take the form of extreme group policing and ostracization. these kids then get charged for their first opportunity to hang somebody and do the community some good, which leads to seriously incredible instances of prosecuting thought crimes or minor slip-ups with no concern for the well-being of the prosecuted or the actual impact and intent of the 'crime'.

it starts to be seen as a community imperative to purge anyone who so much as consumes and enjoys media that might contain something transgressive or just be by someone who had a transgressive thought. follow someone transgressive on social media (e.g. a contentious trans person like contrapoints) and it doesn't matter if you're following in full knowledge they're problematic and doing so just to keep up with the discourse, you'll get accused or suspected of supporting them and sometimes called out, unfollowed, blocked, etc. the more 'woke' the community you're in, the more you're expected to go along with this shit without question and obey murmurs and gossip - and obey them very quickly. get caught out of the loop on who is or isn't problematic and you'll get a teenager asserting they're somehow victimized and suggesting you're malicious if you don't obey on the spot. the more public the space, the worse this often is.

you'd be astonished to learn how severely we bludgeon some of our own because they're more accessible than the person alleged of offending. i guarantee to you that right now friendships are being ended and people pushed out of discord servers (that may be among their only daily hangout spaces) for some expressing that they feel this translator was getting unfairly bullied and didn't deserve this no matter how many concessions they make that what he did wasn't right. likewise, i'm sure there are those on the other extreme infuriated with those intimating the translation doesn't need to stay as-is and could be a bit more sensitive.

People who think politics began in 2016 or with GamerGate or whenever Tumblr went online.

People who think leftism = identity politics, or even that idpol is essential or fundamental to a leftist mindset.

People conflating leftism with their emotional juvenility, refusal to grow up, narcissism, mood disorders, etc. ("The personal is political!")

People who underestimate or downplay the damaging, counterproductive nature or idpol, while also wildly overestimating it's potency.

For the rest, The Culture of Narcissism by Christopher Lasch is mandatory reading, and if reading is hard, r/stupidpol is a good place to shoot the shit and find alternative ideas to """leftism""" corrupted by neolibs, radlibs, and assorted narcissistic retards.

Warren suggests criminalizing "misinformation", informed by her center-right wing position. Almost all of American politic skews right, but (in the country right now) she is looking comfortably centrist among peers.

My point being, authoritarian ideas come from every position on the political spectrum, not just the fringes. It happens because (apparently) nobody can accept that they will sometimes see and hear things they disagree with. Sometimes, the things you will hear won't even be true! :)

While obviously proposed to strengthen the MSM, it's a short sighted idea that can backfire. Sidestepping the question of the MSM's accuracy, the entire enterprise is folly. In the wrong climate, the same laws could be used by fringe actors to mute the MSM and all other political opposition entirely.

I used to be fucking PLAGUED by mosquitoes. They all congregated by my front door and pretty much any time I needed to go in or out some would fly in. Even trying to take a shit there'd be like 3 or 4 mosquitoes in there with me. I learned to take a hand-towel and become fkn Simon Belmont, Bug Slayer, while on the pot. Dark days...
The trucks spraying for mosquitoes over the years have driven most of them off now, tho. (but at what cost?! Guess I'll find out 25 years down the road when the doctor tells me my balls fell off because of a now-banned pesticide)

Grew up in a tropical climate without air conditioning, can vouch for the little annoyed hell of mozzies in your fuckin room at night. Image

Was perversely satisfying smacking the shit out 'em when they were full of blood. God knows whose. Image Next morning they'd be on the way out and weakly harassing you in the shower / on the shitter, but there was little comfort in terminating the little fuckers then.

Man, bugs suck.
When I'm down in Trinidad visiting family, I always get murdered by bug bites.
Stayed for like 4 months once as a kid, and my legs were just awful knobbled things utterly covered in bites. Barely any unbitten skin.
even a recent visit a few months ago was pretty awful

I live in Florida, but nothing really gets me here.

The little fuckers love me, as do horseflies. Cheers Britain with your constant rain in summer bringing the bastards out in swarms. I also have an allergy to mozzie bites that's bizzarely localised in my right hand - one gets a bite in there and I'm facing a couple of days unable to move my swollen hand. Left hand? Literally anywhere else? Fine, no worries. Whatever body, do what you want yeah?

Only the females drink blood so I will spare any I find in the house with male feathered antennae. They'll be disappointed to see what's left of any local females squashed up in a tissue!

If you squish a male, that means one less to fertilize the females around.

That's a little too genocidey for my tastes - they tend to fertilise in swarms outside, so it's done by the time you find the buggers in the house. Also, gotta leave something for the false widow spiders that live in my window vents!

Negative reviews of Final Fantasy II by people who are butthurt because the game isn't what they want it to be.

Yes, using magic can lower your physical strength, and using physical attacks can lower your magic stat. If you know this, then why put magic on a physical attacker just to complain about it? You have three fixed party members for a reason.

Shields increase evasion but not defense. Enemy attacks can break through even the toughest defenses but don't always land reliably. So why keep bogging down your party members with heavy armor?

The game has no small number of serious issues (like Potions and Antidotes not stacking despite having to share inventory space with plot items), but the growth system, flawed as it may be, isn't one of them.

EDIT: Relevant quote:

The CRPG Addict wrote:
I suppose it's a decent counter-argument that by experiencing NO console games, I'm not seeing innovations (if they truly exist) that might have influenced computer RPGs. Your example about Final Fantasy II kicking off a game element that influenced The Elder Scrolls would be a good example if it was true--but we saw this dynamic in computer RPGs as far back as SwordThrust (1981) but more notably in Dungeon Master (1987). Are there other examples that ARE true?

Some time ago I posted about a subject of annoyance in the smiles thread, and now I'm coming full circle by posting something happy in Little Annoyed Hell since the topic was discussed here a while back.

So, is this [using codes for stage select/invincibility/etc] all cheating? Well, yeah, of course it is. These codes aren't meant to be used during regular gameplay...

[S]ay you used one of these codes to make it all the way through the entire game. Can you brag to the other kids on the playground the next day that you beat the game?

It's definitely a hollow victory.

The wasteland of proprietary crippleware that is FPGA design tools.

And the solitary open source alternative that is only for 1337 h@x0r25 because there are NO downloadable binaries ANYWHERE.

Which brings me to github. Terrible site. I don't even bother clicking a github link unless I'm desperate, because 98% of links to github go to a page with a list of cryptic directory names and some random text that has nothing to do with anything. Chance of finding anything useful is approximately zero. Can't decide if this is worse or less-worse than dropbox and google links. Those just go to a blank page. Unless you enable the malware in which case they are likely to yield some type of file.

Then there are the ad sites full of SEO spam and fake download buttons everywhere. Can't the twitter hate mobs do something useful and get THOSE sites shutdown?

The most important part of Github for someone who isn't there as a developer [and if they are, they're likely to not even actually go to the site] is the "releases" button, which is naturally not in the top bar for some godforsaken reason.
Usually, things like installers and binaries are there so you can actually use the software.

also, the big green "clone or download button" in green is painfully useless -- either I use Git as a dev, and will certainly already know how to clone the repository, or I'm just an ordinary person, and have absolutely no need for anything there
