He is a real pussy. It looks like he changed his twitter user name and account name and protected his tweets, then went to the trouble to create a second twitter account using his old twitter name to try to hide from this.

I guess he must have gotten an inquiry from someone in the mainstream media. None of which matters, because I took that screenshot. Heh.

Also, where is the outrage that the title is "Black Mass", but it's full of nothing but white people?

"This film had nothing to do with a Protestant religious ceremony! #MassSoWhite"

(Note: I wish this was a joke, but you know someone will complain about that...)

People have different opinions too. if I was running ev-av I'd crack down on the a-holes that make every topic some political controversy. It's not my forum though.
Actually we don't need dictators at all, we have a wanna be one sitting in the White House already. K Thx. If there's content somewhere that hurts your precious feel feels, simply don't read it and move on, it's really so not hard. Wanting speech you don't like censored is authoritarian and nothing else.

The film's title was drawn from the Black Mass, which was traditionally an "inversion" of the Catholic Mass and, especially in modern times, attributed to Satanic worship. The term has been around since the late 1400s and cropped up in works like the Malleus Maleficarum, a witch-hunter's manual.

Of course, the film was also based the book called Black Mass: Whitey Bulger, the FBI, and a Devil's Deal, which is the true crime book that famously told the Whitey Bulger story fifteen years ago.

I know it was a joke, but I sincerely hope people don't actually take is as some sort of racist remark.

Just got the same thing on a private work facebook group the big-wigs read. A friend complained about the shitty AC and I used the word 'fuck' in response.

By the time I got up it seemed every oversensitive granny within a 300 mile radius had complained to admins.

People need to grow up.



I was gonna post that in response to them but figured I'd just get in more trouble.

He basically threatened to try to get the owners of the website to use force. How entitled he must feel.

Then you're just too stupid to be realistic. In Anemone's little Utopian free speech forum, the spammers would have free reign too just like on usenet. For every comment you want to read you'd have to wade through 5-10 about Viagra and Russian mail order brides. Eventually you'd stop trying. You might be able to make it work by using user votes to promote topics but then you're just shifting the censorship onto the mob.

Moderation is what makes this place different then 4chan. I don't come nearly as often as I used to because it's filled with thin skinned jackoffs who think nothing of hijacking a gaming topic to talk politics. I do skip over the bullshit but it makes the gaming to bullshit ratio higher, meaning I just don't visit as often.

It's Ev-av's place. If that's the kind of gaming site he wants, more power to him. When the bullshit ratio gets too high, I'll just move to greener pastures. I've been enjoying "Rock Paper Shotgun" lately. The comments sections are fairly controlled and about gaming. I don't agree with everything that's said but at least it's on topic.

Yes it's not surprising you like RPS. Which leans about as progressive as you can get for a gaming site. You libs sure do love your echo chambers and are generally against opinions that you don't agree with. Look at college campuses across the US right now for a perfect example of this kind of behavior. We get it Kwan, the only speech jackoffs like you enjoy is progressive drivel.

That way your own special flavor of shit can stand out again! You progs are always about shutting people up and control. Perhaps you should enroll in the University of Missouri's school of journalism. You'd fit right in.

MasterKwan shouldn't be berated for voicing his opinion. I've been over it many times with you guys about the politics in the threads and let it go when you and other members wanted to let conversations go their own way. If that's what you want to talk about, fine. But Terran, Spectral, there's no reason to personally attack MasterKwan. That's unnecessary. It seems any time someone disagrees with you guys, you label them and then viciously start attacking them. Not cool.

Really sai? Kwan tossed the first stone to begin with, a spade is a spade is it not? When someone repeatedly takes the progressive side in any topic that goes political should we call them conservative? Come on man, the guy basically tossed in his support for censorship against things he doesn't like, much like bean used to try and do. Calling it out for what it is isn't some sort of vicious attack.

Like I said, there may be ways to deal with that.

For one thing, I don't actually suggest a system with zero moderation, that was your own interpretation of what I said. Decentralized does not automatically imply zero-moderation.

I laid down some ideas for how to moderate a decentralized reddit awhile back that would allow for what I call lenses of moderation, where anyone can mod a sub and viewers can subscribe to moderators.

If you believe reddit works today with its current moderation setup without giving spammers free reign, then you should accept that what I suggest should be done would be equally successful.

Again, this is your own assumption. Note that you didn't ask me about my suggestion that things wouldn't be this way necessarily.

Obviously Reddit currently is capable of dealing with spammers. A decentralized reddit can be equally capable.

Again, you're assuming moderation is impossible under such a system, and it isn't. What is impossible, and what should remain impossible, is monopoly moderation. I consider that a design flaw of current reddit, and allowing moderation lenses and user-subscriptions to mod-lenses would cure that flaw.

Since I'm suggesting still using moderation, then you agree with me.
