Little green frogs are literally Hitler

Said no one, ever. But little green frogs are often used by people that appreciate Hitler, and while people such as yourself try to claim that's not true (even though the creator of the frog knows it is), it's certainly become a symbol of white power. It may have other uses, but the primary other uses are trolls - people who are accused of white power (and frequently whine about how much white pride they have), using it to try to troll. And send a message.

This was an entire social network choosing to use the frog because of its connotations to white power. Yes, they'll tell you its to troll, and they'll tell you it's ridiculous that it has white power connotations, but for fuckssake, it's all over places like The Daily Stormer. It's clearly being adopted by White Power. You're like some guy in 1942 trying to tell everyone it's perfectly normal to wear a swastika on your shirt - only idiots would think an ancient symbol symbolized antisemitism! You'd say this, then make a remark about how greedy globalists are ruining the world and need a solution...

When your purpose as a company is to give a platform to those so loathesome other companies won't do business with them, don't be surprised when other companies won't do business with you.

Notice that plenty of people not completely disgusting use Facebook, the really poor false equivalence you used. Notice that Facebook tries to avoid being used as a hate platform. Now contrast with Gab, which was founded solely to be one (just very open to any kind of hate, not any particular hate.) Can you see a difference, Mr. Nazi?
From my perspective twitter is nothing but a places where left wing nuts censors anyone they don't agree with that calls out their BS (hence the creation of Gab), while at the same time espousing their own hatred #VerifiedHate.

I can see the difference for FB, but FB has had live murders broadcast on it. Does that mean every user of FB is now a murder? Cause that's basically what you are implying about GAB. GAB is a place for people who are tired of twitter's censorship BS. I hope you understand, Mr NPC?

Twitter is garbage, but the attacks typically come from the right, not the left, and it would be ironic if Gab started its "we're all about free speech" bullshit because it was afraid of all the speech its users were receiving on Twitter, no?

But that's not it. It started because it claimed conservatives were being banned from Twitter, and wanted to give them a place to go. Except conservatives aren't being banned from Twitter, racists and bigots and harassers are. No one is banned for saying they believe our trade deficit is too high, or that they think state governments need more power. They're banned for saying white supremacist bullshit (and then have worked hard to make sure that white supremacist bullshit is synonymous for "conservative" by claiming that's why they were banned.)

So Gab was very proudly created for people banned from Twitter. Not people who were the object of free speech, but people who broke TOS agreements by either harassing or being bigots. If your place is created for bigots...

Also, again, unsurprising that a guy gleefully showing his face as a Nazi thinks that being banned for being a bigot is bad. I'm sure you think that Kentucky guy who dressed his son as Hitler for Halloween was just a history buff.

I guess liberals don't want to shut down 4chan.org because it's their go to source for Japanese Hentai Anime Porn or something.

Gab uses a little green frog for an avatar, looks a lot like Pepe.

SHUT. IT. DOWN.

Why do you think they use a little green frog?

And plenty tried to shut down 8chan. 4chan isn't explicitly for hate like Gab and, to a lesser extent, 8chan, but what makes you think liberals like it? I'm sure you're a The_Donald or Kotaku_In_Action reader - those places are constantly freaking out believing liberals are taking their chans.

Gab was created as a "free speech" alternative to Twitter. Tell me, what speech has Twitter banned, other than hatespeech?

Beneficial... riiight. Until the layoffs and store closings start to happen.

Why would store closings happen? Why would layoffs happen?

1) It isn't like you can run a store with fewer people. Every store is already running with the minimum amount it can in order to still be competitive. This is true about every industry. Surely you've noticed you're working more hours and everyone is stretched thinner than 15 years ago. Blue collar and white collar, in the aftermath of the 2008 economic crisis companies cut G&A to the bone and haven't revived it.

1b) The only exception to this is moving jobs to automation, such as replacing the people taking your order at McDonald's with tablets. Which, incidentally, gets blamed on minimum wage hikes, yet was happening prior to these hikes, and is happening faster in areas without the hikes, as it has nothing to do with the hikes and is just "smart business" for these places - it's cheaper, consumers tend to like it more, and it actually leads to higher sales because a shiny image of a side or dessert or new product can upsell better than a cashier ever can.

2) Why would there be closings? Stores raise prices to deal with this. With the minimum wage higher, more people have more money and can afford to spend more. It isn't really that much. Let's say a McDonald's has 6 employees on duty at any time, and is open 18 hours a day. That's 756 hours a week. If they're making $10.50, that's about $8,000 in wages. At $15, that's about $11,000 in wages. A store with 6 concurrent employees is doing 3,000-5,000 orders per day. Worst case, that's about 50 cents you need from each order to cover the increased wages. But since your lowest end is making much more per hour, the economy can afford that.

And, honestly, if you can't afford to pay your employees a living wage, do you deserve to be in business?

If Twitter wants to make a healthier climate for debate they should get rid of the retweet button, it's basically a "manufacture outrage" button.

People would just do screenshots, but yes, I know "both sides" is often a bad argument, but both sides love to find some random lunatic (often a troll) with 3 followers saying something which then gets worked up and becomes a cause.

I'm pretty certain the entirety of GamerGate has lasted beyond the first week exclusively on intentional misunderstandings and overreacting to tweets by 14 year old girls with 0 followers.

Fallout 3 was the last good game in the series.

You didn't like New Vegas? (no judging, I actually liked FO3 better than New Vegas just because there was more to explore.)

I'm with you. NV was a better world, but FO3 was a more satisfying game to me. I didn't even finish NV. After accidentally starting a war with the Roman people, I managed to slaughter them all. Just slaughter. Didn't expect that, and decided to stick with it instead of save spam. So I went back to the strip and did more slaughtering. I ended every questline I'd found via bloodshed. And no I had no leads. I know I missed a whole lot with the armed forces, but nothing I'd done had started quest lines with them, so I had no crumbs to follow. I was sitting there, surrounded by blood, with nothing to do and nowhere to go.

For some, that's great. For me, meh, the whole game tried to make me think too hard about consequences. I just want to be able to kill everything, except for the things that stop progression. I want to see everything and not have to choose what to see now and what to see in a theoretical 2nd playthrough of a game that took me at least 6 weeks to beat the first time.

33. Re: RDR2... Oct 29, 2018, 13:05 Beamer
 
I remember when my roommate at the time got GTA:SA. I thought it was the dumbest game possible. Part of the issue was so much effort was put into clothing, but it loaded so slowly that trying something on was a monumental frustration as the game loaded from the CD.

The big issue, though, was nearly everything was tedious and pointless garbage. You could go on dates, which meant having to pick a woman up, drive slowly, buy her food, go to a club, and do the quicktime dancing. Why? There was nothing to be gained for all of this. Worse, though, was fitness. If you ate too much you got fat. If you ran a lot you'd get more stamina. Sounds RPGish, I mean, I praise Oblivion for letting you jump further as you improve acrobatics, but GTA:SA wants realism, so you had a gym. I walked downstairs once and saw my roommate sitting on the couch, pressing X so his character ran on a treadmill. What?! Why? How in the world is that fun? He spent a few hours doing this to run faster.

The Saints Row games avoided this (and weren't half as trashily written), and became my preferred open world. Hell, in Saints Row, you modified a car and it was permanently in your garage, even if you blew it up. In San Andreas, realism mattered, so you had to park your car delicately, not destroy it, and not lose it, making it pointless to upgrade something that wouldn't last. Realistic, but not fun.

RDR didn't really have this bloat. Yes, you spent way too much time watching your guy skin animals, and sure he handled like a tank, but that was it.

Creston, I'm not even reading your list because I want to enjoy this game and just the first few give me awful shudders back to San Andreas. I'd read about the bath. Some reviewer said it was a fun surprise, but questioned if it would get old. YES! Having to choose between muddy or scrubbing my cowboy (not an innuendo, mind you.) I know I say it often here, but I game like 5 hours a week. I want games that respect that. Time I spend scrubbing my cowboy is time I spend not exploring, not improving, and not killing. That's what I want to do in my time. Games that take too long to let me do some of those just get uninstalled for me.

I'm supersized you didn't throw in sexist, misogynist, homophobe etc. as well.

What is disgusting is that these tech groups using their power to de-platform the alternative platforms to their own "PC" platforms off the internet. Seeing as the shooter also used FB and twitter, are services to those platforms also going to get cut? :\

Gab was started as a place for those banned from Reddit to go. It's literally designed for that sole purpose, and advertised itself as such (making it a more successful Voat.)

Who gets banned from reddit? Pretty much solely the groups I mentioned, combined nicely with the ones you mentioned. When your purpose as a company is to give a platform to those so loathesome other companies won't do business with them, don't be surprised when other companies won't do business with you.

5. Re: Fallout 76 Trailer Oct 29, 2018, 11:54 Beamer
 
Honestly, every time I play a Fallout I feel like the canon shouldn't be continuous. It feels too limiting. These games are getting too big, covering too much real estate, and we know the outcome of too many vaults. There are only 122! That's not a lot of ground to cover. I kind of feel like each should be its own universe with its own 122 vaults.

That has nothing to do with my thoughts on this game, though. Fallout never felt like a natural candidate for this kind of off-shoot, as it isn't action focused enough. I'm not in the target market for this, and won't judge it too harshly for that reason (I hate multiplayer games now that I only game about 5 hours a week and would never get enough practice to be good, and I've still yet to play FO4, though I do hope to get to it before there's a FO5, or even new ES game), but it doesn't intrigue me at all. Were I 20 I'd probably be all about it, though.

ROFL, and guess who paid for this, Seattle. Anyone who has any economic sense knows for a fact setting a high minimum wage like the 15 dollar one kills jobs and cost workers. If you are too dumb to grasp that fact I feel sorry for you. Employers cut hours and cut staff when you do this, ending up with less people making less money.

How? Because they'll automate things like fast food workers? They've been doing that, anyway.

Sorry if you think it's better that the few have all the money, but as others pointed out, that doesn't lead to money being spent.

*yawn*

From what I've seen of the game (saw a few streamers play it) the game doesn't hit any of my "must play" buttons.

Admiteddly they weren't very far in, but the writing and dialogue wasn't that awesome and the player's character is far from a cool & mysterious gunslinger type that would draw me into the story.

The gameplay itself looked kind of meh.

Your comment seems to echo the general user reviews. 9.7 / 10 from MetaCritic's Critic Reviews, yet only 7.6 from User Reviews (based on at least 2000 reviews). Basically, over hyped and under delivers seems to be the consensus.

Also shows you how much stock you can put in supposedly impartial Critic Reviews these days...


The game has been out for 48 hours. It's a huge open world game. People writing user reviews now are ones with an ax to grind. I wouldn't be shocked if a huge chunk are people like some here, just furious over the lack of a PC mode, so angrily saying it's terrible without playing.

This is a good point. I think it comes back to the team stuff. I don't feel like people are on my team. I don't join groups like The_Donald to talk to my fellow people and constantly moan or discuss conspiracies. A lot of people that hold similar views to mine are nuts, because a lot of people are nuts. Once you're bought into the_donald, or being a Trumper in general, you seem to think it's you and your team vs anyone. Someone on your team can't be bad. It's kind of the only way to buy into Trump's rhetoric, right? He's there fighting for you, so when he calls all those other Americans shitty for not being like you, he's right!

I haven't actually seen feminists rage at RDR2. I've seen a bunch of nerds raging over a single line in an otherwise glowing review from The Verge, but that's what the horrible incel nerd mob does - flip out over anything not entirely glowing as if it's condemning everything. "When it comes to women, the game is less successful" becomes "this game is garbage and everyone playing it is garbage" to a loud group of morons. The Verge loved the game and makes it obvious.

This kind of nonsense is unacceptable. YOU are the ones harassing people almost daily all over the country. Telling a 911 Widow that its good her husband died because he probably shoved something up innocent black peoples asses and was a pedophile.

this is the ridiculous side of it. You people have been going bat shit crazy for 2 years. Including SHOOTING A SENATOR. This guy is clearly a loon.

btw, trump has NOT been inciting violence at his rally's or on twitter he has one comment from over two years ago about punching someone in the face. Your leadership has been inciting Violence almost DAILY all over the media.

Enough of the lies and double standard.


1) The guy that shot Scalise was reprehensible. But he wasn't egged on by any politician, unlike this gentleman

2) No one has a clue what the 9/11 widow you're talking about is. For fuckssake, we can find any number of lunatics saying shit like that. They're very frequently on your side, or do you not visit The_Donald?

3) What about all the Proud Boys? What about Charlottesville?

4) He was a loon. No offense, you say the same things he had on his van.

5) Trump hasn't been inciting violence? Just yesterday he was continuing his "lock' up" chant!



You need to seriously look in the mirror and consider your rhetoric.
