"Leftists are a cancer - which is absolutely true objectively speaking." I think you need to look up the definitions of objective and subjective. This is an opinion not a fact. The question was how did these subsaidits make the world a better place? Helping to anger people and divide the left and right more and promoting ideas that leftists are a cancer IMO (see how that works?) doesn't make anything better at all, it all just creates more hatred.

Yeah, it was a pretty intense episode. Sometimes I think that the show was over the top but they also explored some pretty serious issues and did it in a way that made them more accessible to people who may not have understood the significance of them before. When you mention thinking it went to far and being Dutch is this because the Netherlands is more sexually progressive than the U.S.?

Replication failures in psychology not due to differences in study populations by Nechama in Psychology

[–]Nechama[S] 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Yep but with the push to publish or perish and editors wanting to publish unique and interesting findings it's not hard to imagine that studies are rushed, bias can enter into them or some may even fudge results since negative findings aren't generally published. Of course, when these studies are used as the basis of making treatment decisions for example, this can be a big problem.

Inspirational Hemingway Quotes by Nechama in quotes

[–]Nechama[S] 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

He also advocated writing drunk so that may have accounted for him writing standing up and in the nude! The story - not sure why almost shooting himself every morning would prove anything positive or give him a reason to go on living. If he knew the pull of the trigger, how after some time of doing this every morning and thus learning even better the pull of the trigger, did he then shoot himself? Just a question - not sure if you mean this story has already been written in it's entirety or given the note to self you are planning on writing it and only part is written or something similar. There is also a book called I Killed Hemingway where someone else is supposedly responsible for all of Hemingway's claimed exploits and just allows Hemingway to take all the credit eventually shooting him.

Amish Saiditors. What did you do your your Rumspringa? by Tom_Bombadil in AskSaidIt

[–]Nechama 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I agree. To be able to know that nothing has been hidden from you in an effort to try to make you stay in the fold through ignorance is wonderful. They get to experience what they choose to experience and then make an informed decision as to what they believe and what they want their life to be like. Although people have accused the Amish of being "backwards" this is one of the most progressive ideas I have heard about from any religion.

Can Narcissists Feel Empathy? by Nechama in Psychonaut

Can Narcissists Feel Empathy? by Nechama in Psychonaut

[–]Nechama[S] 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I'm not sure they can learn empathy. If empathy can be taught (I don't know what I think about this), they would have to care enough about others and having relationships with others based on something other than their desires to want to learn it. The ones I've met at least don't even seem to understand such a thing as empathy or real feelings for other based on something other than manipulating them to serve their own wants and needs exists.

Such a great system! Focusing from day one on positivity and making sure everyone knows this is a non-bullying, no attacks allowed website. I was on another website (which shall remain nameless) where someone disagreed with something I said but having no justifiable response instead attacked me, my background, my culture and even attacked and insulted my mother! When I requested that the moderator delete that comment they called me a baby, said I needed to fight my own battles and to fight fire with fire. That was when I decided to look for another platform. Thanks for setting up one that will tolerate no abuse. The hierarchy you post for everyone is great!

Signed up yesterday. So glad there's an alternative to Reddit. I was getting tired of all the negativity. I love that there are no downvotes here. It's so much better to have upvotes as you can tell popular posts and if you don't like something you can just not vote for it instead of bashing it with a down vote. I think downvotes also lead to manipulation of posts by being able to increase the discrepancy between posts making it easier to force a post higher by forcing others lower. I also really like the opt out vs. opt in system. After a year I still have no idea what all the subreddits were and kept being surprised when I found a new one that I was interested in. This way you can see right away what's available and then create a list of all those you want by slowly excluding those you don't. This means you won't miss any you want to follow. Thanks for creating this! I can't wait to learn more about it and read what others have posted here.
