Blue, my "mastery of facts" involve a tiny amount of journalistic assertion, and fact-checking, rare these days i know. you run a website focused on journalism. I'd think that you would be pro journalism, and not insinuating that i'm trying to be a "mind-reader", for looking up facts instead of spouting opinion disguised as facts. come on dude.

I don't think you follow my point. You can disagree with someone without calling them a liar, much less repeatedly. The mind reader comment was simply to say that no one needs you parsing who is lying versus who is mistaken versus who is simply disagreeing with your opinion.

This has nothing to do with journalism, this has to do with courtesy. Read forum rule #1.

Who is this Slick user who's been making most of his posts from his account in this comments thread here?

a long-time reader, short time poster. also, there's this thing about lies which just gets under my skin, and i feel compelled. what can i say?

*Also feel free to join the ever increasing ranks of the official BluesNews Slick Fanclub. with my 148 posts i've generated more hate on here than i think anyone else, i'm going for the high score.

You probably can't win, but you're obviously trying. Speaking of which, I'm going to ask you to stop calling anyone who disagrees with you a liar. Your mastery of facts does not cover mind-reading.

Avencast: Rise of the Mage 75% off on Steam. Charming little game and independently made, with a megacritic user rating of 83. Well worth $2.49, if you like top down and playing a mage. Good writing, story and art.

Yeah, that's from Monday's roundup.

Damn you nin! Beat me to it while I was verifying...

I literally had both links open in tabs and kept flipping back and forth.

Thankfully I figured this out before going further down the road to madness.

The URL was correct in Blammo, but the "I" was even capitalized if I viewed the source code. I was going to post again about how mysterious this was when I remembered I added a tag a while ago to capitalize "Internet" when I forgot to. This is because I decided years ago capitalizing it made as little sense as would capitalizing "television" or "magazine," but I finally decided my stand was not actually influencing the situation, and I might as well follow convention.

I deleted the tag, and will have to live with the consequences if I forget and write it as "internet."

Yeesh.

Can anyone explain to me why this works from Cutter's link and not mine when the URLs are exactly the same?

And the taboo for criticizing religion holds strong even on Blue's News, being censored like that.

I'm sure there are places where such discussions are welcome.

Granted, it had little to do about games or the actual topic. But still..

That's the point. Posts that inspire on-topic fights are quite enough, thanks.

And it was only a year or so back that Harvard came out and said cancer is all but incurable with current technology and we likely wouldn't see any real in-roads for at least another century.

I, for one, am at a loss as to your point here.

Just watched Movie 43 and yes, it was puerile, but it was funny. Particularly the one with Liev and Naomi homeschooling their kid.

Not to be confused with the movie 42 about Jackie Robinson.

I assumed it was the sequel.

Hey Blue, hate to complain about the site, but these auto-run ads with sound are friken annoying.
I don't mind auto-run-ads if it helps you make a buck, but the sound part sucks.

We aren't supposed to have any of those. Can you tell me what you are seeing ads for?

Haha, indeed. I think the reference the author shot for and missed was Jaime Sommers.

For the GMG sale of Tomb Raider, use this code to save an extra $5. Cost at checkout should be $20.

That's included in the story. I was trying to let Dealzon get their fair hits for that for pointing it out.

Turning this into an argument over one single story that degenerates into name calling is exactly what I'm talking about being the kind of thread hijacking that should stop. The story is about censorship, not which stories you believe are being censored.

It's your site blue, but that doesn't make you automatically right - in this case you are absolutely wrong. I had a look at my past post history, you mind taking the time to look too? My posts are almost always a followup to your political story or users who make some political statement, but 99% are just gaming related.

I post what is accurate and related. You don't think our govt wanting more and more censorship while stories like I posted that get buried (or maybe censored out in the future...) don't coincide?

You have a slew of users who actually do what you wrongly accused me of -- I don't appreciate the call out -- I'll stop coming here is the best solution to this 'problem'.

Okay, I think I crossed you with another user, as I see I have accused unfairly in a general sense. And I apologize.

I do think you steering a discussion of censorship into a conspiracy theory based on it involving censorship is a stretch. But as you say, I have unfairly accused you of trolling in this area. Sorry.

But do trust that you will have fewer such "users who make some political statement" to respond to, since I do plan on pushing back against so much political trolling.

AP, USN, all over the place it's been news for months - not on cnn or msnbc tho of course...

Any chance you could stop taking every opportunity to push your political agenda? It's feeling very forced, and I'm losing patience with you derailing threads.

The site you posted the link to accepts comments. Since they actually covered the story you are concerned with, and we didn't, perhaps you can express yourself there.

I am getting a tad pizzed off at the small vids on the top right of the front page just starting up on their own, with no way for me to turn em off. News Bulletin.... if I wanna watch that shiz, I`LL turn it on. If this kinda thing continues, I guess I`ll have to find a different site than Blues to hang at. Too bad tho, cause I have hung here for years literally.

This doesn't sound like it should be happening. Can you explain what you mean? Are you getting popups with videos, or are these videos playing in one of the ad spaces?

You can't quote a post and then report it... you are reporting yourself too.

And as for the original rage-filled post, we try to provide links to quarterly financial reporting of Microsoft, AMD, Intel, and Apple as well as game companies. You can type "quarterly" in the search box and see that for yourself.

If you don't trust me or don't approve of the coverage here, feel free to leave. Or you can make another post like that last one and you will be asked to.
