I can't talk about the YEMEN GENOCIDE? Why can't I talk about the YEMEN GENOCIDE? Oh okay, I'll tell everyone not to talk about the YEMEN GENOCIDE!

... Excuse me, did you just talk about the YEMEN GENOCIDE?... Oh you weren't talking about the YEMEN GENOCIDE, okay then, carry on but remember to not talk about the YEMEN GENOCIDE!

I think I mentioned the YEMEN GENOCIDE once, but got away with it.

From 'save the environment' to 'funding by slavers is OKAY' in the flip of a coin. Is it reasonably to expect some sort of outrage in the fan base if this goes through?

When reddit changed the voting system and people were on their last nerve with this site, a place called Whoaverse (now https://voat.co/) became popular overnight. It is basically a reddit clone and at the time was run by one guy. He was happy about the surge but mentioned it was going to be hard to keep up with, but was committed to making it happen. Guess what happened next?

Did you guess: “Thousands of targeted spam attacks to overload and destroy the website”? Then congrats, you now understand how far these fucks are willing to go to keep the herd in their pen. Hijacking a cool brand and using it’s facade to conduct propaganda games is extremely profitable, just ask VICE. Super secret link. And once you have the customer, it costs much less to keep them than to acquire new ones. So we are seeing online guerrilla tactics designed to destroy the competition by any means.

Luckily we have cloudfare r..right?
