Bane wasn't a mod at the time, though he always was in close contact with them. Others may have differing opinions, but I wouldn't assign responsibility to a single mod. The things that turned me off personally to the whole thing:

  • The sub in my view didn't get the number of posts to warrant changes that further restricted what users could post. At the time maybe there'd be 35-40 posts/day, which for the number of mods they have seems low.
  • The mods started getting into petty arguments with the users upon being called out on what they were doing and would play little games where a user would ask a question about the rules and get a response like "well I'm not 'on duty' right now so I can't answer that"

I never got into one of these arguments with a mod, but reading them started to really bug me after awhile, because it seemed like the mod would try to goad a user into doing something against the rules so another mod could flex their authority against that user. And even though it was only one or two mods who would get into these arguments, I never saw any of the other ones publicly to knock that shit off.

I don't even understand the point of these "Conservatives". Why even bother?

I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! So, because you are lukewarm — neither hot nor cold — I am about to spit you out of my mouth.

Torba needs to found the "Gab Employees Credit Union" and maybe offer membership to members of the "Gab Boosters Club" which he can simultaneously found.

Eric Weinstein is "frightened" by him for some reason. Imagine being frightened by someone you've never met because they have vaguely anarcho-captitalist and race-realist views.

Sports radio has been garbage for a long time. Pretty much all the grievances gamers had about games journalism had existed long before in the sports world. It's a cesspit, and given there aren't any actual sports for them to report on, I'm not surprised they've switched to race-baiting.

With all the recent talk of exponential functions, I'd like to share an exponential function. In the past 3 days I've shifted further to the right than the past 2 months, where I had shifted further to the right than the past 4 years. Thanks leftists for showing your true colors.

eSports 'journalist' Taylor Cocke gets triggered over gamer criticizing anti-voice chat nonsense, because the guy spreading the nonsense was 'trans' by AntonioOfVenice in KotakuInAction

eSports aren't real sports, and real sports "journalists" aren't real journalists; so how much of a hack do you have to be to be an "eSports 'journalist'"?

It's interesting because Dave was one of the youtubers who originally thought this thing was a big deal, followed the evidence where it lead, and eventually concluded it was being blown way out of proportion. I like his channel, but generally speaking he's pretty milquetoast. If his videos are getting removed no WuFlu dissident is safe.

'Steph' Loehr (Twitch Safety Council member) incited violence against people he disagreed with: "you should buy heirloom produce and throw milkshakes at white supremacists" by AntonioOfVenice in KotakuInAction

No doubt he would have words about me and my CivNat gardening ways, because I don't care where my plants come from as long as they perform the function I want them to perform.

Ant it probably shouldn't be too surprising that a lot of North American vegetation isn't native, considering the early American settlers were effectively trying to recreate Europe on the North American continent. And for plants where the climates weren't quite compatible (lawn grasses, for example, don't stay green throughout the summer without irrigation in most parts of the country) we ended up importing varieties from elsewhere.

I wonder what this person has to say about invasive plants and noxious weeds. Or the movement to prioritize the planting of plants native to a region over non-native ones.

I have no problem with a private citizen doing what they need to do to keep their family safe and healthy, provided they aren't infringing on others' right to do the same. That is a sane and reasonable thing for any individual to do.

I have a major problem when a public health official enacts policy completely the opposite of what they are personally doing to keep their own family safe and healthy. The legal system should crack down hard on those people, and society should have no tolerance for officials acting in such a manner.

I've been trying to avoid chiming into this whole "controversy" honestly. I'm tired of dancing to the left's tune on what I should be outraged (or not outraged) by.

But in practical terms it seems as though it is effectively illegal to use lethal force against a black person, and the burden of proof is heavily shifted towards the individual using it having absolutely no other means of de-escalating the situation. "Message received" as Elon Musk would say.

In the 10th Anniversary book Watterson wrote a brief commentary on this comic where he mentions reading a bunch of art critique books to get a feel for how these articles were written. That book was released 25 years ago, and I don't even remember when this particular comic was first published.

This ideology has been going on for decades, and we ignored it because we figured it would go away on its own. That was about as wise as ignoring a cancerous lump.

Is the rule against posting manifestos in service of a site-wide? I think it's important to be able to read and discuss them and can be done without "glorifying" the acts.

Recommend making the sub private for a time to encourage people to join here. IIRC your original idea was "we all jump ship at once", and that would encourage such action.
