Yeah, how the hell does it take them 16 minutes to explain the problems in any movie, let alone Rampage? Shorten it up, Youtubers.

Everything Wrong With could really do with cutting all their episodes in half. Get rid of the chaff and the humourless nitpicking. But no, YouTube pays based on how long people watch for, so padding it is.

Also watch the damn movies properly. Their Blade Runner 2049 video was a mess.

You liberals...

Look up the word communist and do an in-depth study of the topic. First, you will find that most modern liberals think and believe in communism. Second, you will find that communism fails. Just ask people who have lived it. Yes, the USSR used to believe in communism. Today, even Putin knows that communism does not work. Sadly, many Americans were raised in socialist think tanks called colleges and universities where they teach that this garbage succeeds.

You're just a coward, aren't you? You know you've been had, but you don't have the guts to truly accept it so you latch on to anything and anyone who will let you feel like you're in on the con, and not being conned, for another day.

And wait, someone said that here? I'm not surprised, I really do think we have a small but loud contingent of people who just believe Trump tweets and Sargon YouTube videos, but someone said a guy that has always been a Republican and worked with basically every Republican president was an Obama guy?

Yep!

I love the idea that Obama was such a skilled operator, he got the party that obstructed him for 8 years and the candidate who whipped up racial hatred against him, basically running on a platform of undoing everything he did, to let him pick their campaign manager. He was a good president but he wasn't that good!

8 of 18. News seems sketchy (still breaking, so unclear as of yet), but I think I saw facing 80 years, so two of those big bank fraud ones stuck.

I did wonder if the jury would be too partisan to agree on anything. The US would basically be done if that was the case (not that this is the only way he could have gotten off).

I keep getting reminded of this classic from on here a year ago:
Manafort who was a long-time worker for democrats and the obama administration -- and was hired(by Trump) at the suggestion of Obama.

Thanks Obama.

My music? Wrong. All my music is in M4A and MP3 format (over 17,000 files) that are 100% DRM free that will play on any device, any place, at any time, with or without an internet connection. Only chumps who stream music through an online service are at the mercy of DRM.

I think you're in an increasing minority. Surprising (and disappointing) to me too. The on-demand model is just so much easier for the layperson who doesn't want to bother worrying about 17,000 files.

I stream all the music I listen to for convenience. My MP3 collection is dormant, waiting for the day that my net connection dies or I'm too broke for YouTube Premium.

As usual you have no fucking idea.
I know about those border separations.
I was just caught unaware as I considered that matter was put to bed AGES ago.
Who's delusional? Well that would be you.
You dance your little dance and spout your nonsense thinking you have your "finger on the pulse" of what your fellow countrymen want.
Well, about half of them think you are full of shit if the 2016 election is anything to go by.
Come 2020 we will see if that stays the same.
I wonder if Trump wins again in 2020 will you have the intestinal fortitude to admit you have no fucking idea what your fellow countrymen want?
I doubt it.
If he loses and the Republicans (and their supporters) have a great big hissy fit like the Democrats (and their supporters) are having now (and continue to have) then I will get stuck into them in equal measure.
That's EQUALITY kiddies.

Well, it's been fun but, I got shit to take care of.
See yas in the funny papers.

So you don't agree with the border separations, but you also don't think anything since the election deserves a reaction? The separations haven't been put to bed and even if they had, that doesn't mean anyone should just forget about.

You obviously missed the Republicans' reaction to Obama. They were pissed, but about made-up stuff like FEMA camps and he's-gonna-take-our-guns. Or more likely, you were part of it because that's basically your problem - you suck up the propaganda and have no idea what is actually going on. You *might* genuinely think you would laugh at Republicans, but Trump owns your arse so bad that you haven't a clue.

No. i don't "advocate".
I just like pointing out what "crybabies" some people are over an election loss.
If you had any shred of credibility at all you would admit that the "sooking" over Trumps win in 2016 has been over the top and ridiculous in hyperbolic measures.
If Trump loses in 2020 well... Too bad so sad.
That's politics for ya. Hardly "advocating" eh?

Beautiful. You don't advocate ... right after repeating one of Trump's blatant lies.

Right. I can't be bothered finding a link for this guy, I'm just here to laugh at him. Either he's actively a Trump supporter or he genuinely believes he's in any way independent, in which case holy hell is Trump owning his arse and he doesn't even realise it.

You consistently advocate for Trump and his policies, including as you demonstrated his short-term "double-Santa" economic policy. Only an idiot would believe you're not firmly in his camp (which could mean you genuinely believe you're not).

Most of the time it's w/in the margin of error.


It's pretty consistently a small improvement. Each time is within the error of margin, but if that's all it was I would expect with-Denuvo to do better more often. Denuvo causing a small performance hit makes sense, unlike some of the scary reports from very unreliable sources - I don't trust pirates or publishers.

Of course I'd rather have slightly better performance but these figures don't bother me much (particularly as they tried to cause a CPU bottleneck that I wouldn't have). I'm much more worried about compatibility issues and rootkits and the like - how does Denuvo stack up in this regard?

Keep in mind, InfoWars itself supports this kind of "censorship."

You will stay on topic. (Post under the proper category)
You will post articles to the ONE category that best applies.
You will not spam. (Spam is flooding the Internet with many copies of the same message, in an attempt to force the message on people who would not otherwise choose to receive it.)
You will not include links to websites and videos not associated with the topic.
You will not post the same comment or article multiple times or multiple categories.
You will not solicit anyone to buy or sell products or services, or to make donations of any kind. You will not include links to products in your status updates, comments, articles or groups.
You will not post anything libelous, defamatory, harmful, threatening, harassing, abusive, invasive of another's privacy, hateful, racially or ethnically objectionable, or otherwise illegal.
You will not make threats to other users or people not associated with the site.
If you violate these rules, your posts and/or user name will be deleted.
Remember: you are a guest here. It is not censorship if you violate the rules and your post is deleted. All civilizations have rules and if you violate them you can expect to be ostracized from the tribe.

Emphasis mine, but, I mean, even Alex Jones violates these, especially with his endless damn solicitations. He's been going out of business for decades, according to him, saved only if you buy $5 worth of sugar pills for $100.


Ahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!

Why is it so difficult for people to just ignore things you don't like and go about your life? You act like youtube is the 24/7 Alex Jones show (which it probably will be with thousands of people uploading Alex Jones clips now, it's going to turn into the new Rick Roll Troll). Does Facebook force people to visit the Info War page or something? Did Apple automatically make you download his podcast?

You're all embracing corporate censorship like they're some sort of benevolent benefactor to society, will you feel the same way when corporations like Bayer exert their power over removing all content disparaging their fine, extremely safe products from these same social media platforms? Do you think the government will only force corporations to censor things you also want to see censored?

InfoWars breaking the TOS has nothing to do with governments forcing any kind of censorship. I'm glad these tech companies are finally standing up to the cry babies and treating them like they would anyone else.

InfoWars can easily be avoided but the consequences of people who believe these charlatans (including Voice of Europe, you are 100% part of the problem) are unavoidable.

I suspect laziness is the problem - if they would put effort into their plagiarism, they'd have put the effort into just doing their own review.

Freedom of speech is binary. It either exists, or it doesn't. The choice to post comments or say things others find offensive is why the liberty lives in the first place. It is NOT our place to police or censure individuals. Nor does this right belong to the private sector or big government. Anyone who wants to travel down that road is engaging in restrictive freedom, and it is wrong. Worse, where does this action end? If it happens to one aspect of freedom, it will be easy to restrict another.

So you have no boundaries at all? Is viewing or distributing child pornography OK with you? What about shouting "fire" in a crowded cinema? What about shouting racist abuse? How about someone tweeting their anger at white people on their personal Twitter account, should that be a firing offense?

In response to your asinine comment, here's a list of all the fallacies your five questions contain. That's a pretty epic failure on your part. Achievement unlocked, to be sure.

[snip]

None of that applies.

Ad hominems: I did not attack you personally or insult you - or even call your comment asinine. Irrelevant.

Straw man: No, if it's binary, it's all or nothing. You picked "all", these are the questions you have to deal with.

Slippery slope: If it's binary, there's no possible slippery slope. It either exists, or it doesn't.

False Dilemma/False Dichotomy: This is a doozy. You described it as binary. You literally posited an either-or statement. How is pointing out the problems with your "either-or" comment my logical fallacy?

Hasty generalisations, red herring: Irrelevant to my comment, very relevant to yours. Again, do you have no boundaries at all?
