When I look up some of these moderators and see they are mods of dozens of large subreddits, I lose a lot of my sympathy. If you feel overworked, maybe don't moderate so many subreddits?

Protip: Don't call the cops if a loved one is mentally ill and having issues. It's the equivalent of calling the exterminator when your pet tarantula is getting sassy.

Bad press and legal issues selling it in certain countries makes this not a hill worth dying on. Yeah, in a perfect world, we'd be able to have realism for prison tats, but it is what it is...

Your post at least gave me a laugh. Some twat who dislikes Trump got Trump's name permanently tattooed to his flesh...

Let that sink in for a bit. Doesn't actually matter that it replaces the rug with a poop, Trump is important enough that the wanker in the photo decided to permanently commemorate him... =D

If you think that's bad, you should see some of the Trump tattoos that Trump supporters got.

I'll be somewhat surprised if this gets anywhere. He's probably hoping EA will feel bad and settle. His lawyer is going to have a hard time making the case for negligence, given the nature of the crime and the size of the venue/event.

And even if he can, security is the venue's responsibility. Unless he can show this venues security was significantly less than other venues available to EA, then EA did their part. But of course the venue doesn't have a lot of cash on hand probably, which is why he's suing these other entities as well.

If you needed armed security and metal detectors etc any time 20 or more people gathered in the same place to avoid liability, whew, that would be hell for small businesses.

You should check your sources a bit better. "Crime Prevention Research Center" is John Lott, an economist on the NRA payroll, and frequent Fox News talking head.

I was like "Hell yeah, I heard this game was good, if a bit short!" and loaded up Humble Bundle.

Oops I already got this game in my Steam library and forgot I owned it.

I've always wondered what it would take to get a refund from EA. You have to get shot. That's what it takes to get some money from them.

Joking aside, it literally takes like 2 minutes to get a refund on Origin. EA is fucking LIGHTYEARS ahead of Steam where customer service is concerned.

EA customer service, the few times I've needed to use it, has been very good. There have been a couple times I've gotten a refund on Origin and they didn't even take the game away from me. Of course that was probably an oversight/bug, but Valve sure as fuck has never done that

I only have 10-15 games on Origin though, as opposed to like 500 on Steam.

Incidentally, I once found out that the real head of the Catholic Church was Jim Henson, whose soul lives in the original Swedish Chef puppet. He whispers in the Pope's ear every night.

That must be really annoying. Hearing whispers of "BÝrk BÝrk BÝrk" in your ear, waking up, and no one is there, just the faint odor of Swede.

Holy shit, that's brilliant. Devious, and brilliant.
Then we'd also need security lines to get into the security lines!

We can have a huge no man's land where people have to cross one at a time with snipers aiming at them, and there's a metal detector and other security devices manned by robots in the middle. Sure, you could only load like 2 planes a day, but think of the SAFETY!!

Oh wait a minute, what about everyone waiting to go thru the no man's land?! FUCK!!

When people talk about increasing security, I get nervous. We increased security at airports, but it only increased the stress of flying and lowered convenience, and there are still huge juicy targets in airports.

And, ultimately, we have to keep in mind that these types of shootings make up a tiny portion of the gun homicides in the US. Drastically changing our way of life to include metal detectors and security lines everywhere to maybe sometimes address part of 1% of the gun homicides is a bad overreaction.

Turning the US into a giant prison block can't be the solution.

I agree. I go through way too much way too slow airport security, and while I'm sure it's doing something, it's far too invasive.

I keep wondering why we don't see people attacking the security lines themselves. When I'm at the airport in the security line I'm like "Welp, we're sitting ducks." and I'm not even a terrorist. A terrorist, whether it be an Islamic extremist or some incel, would look at that and see a bunch of people lined up for the firing squad.

That's quite possibly the dumbest thing I've read on the internet all day and I just came from reddit
Did you come from /r/woooosh? Cause that was comedy gold. Bravo NKD.

The only shit part is that I waited to play Subnautica until full release, so an early access expansion is going to either feel incomplete in comparison, or I'm going to have to wait a long ass time again.

Vritue Signal, the made up act that only sociopaths without empathy believe in because otherwise they would have to face the fact that they are an absolute cunt.

Agree. Virtue signalling, according to the morons who go around using the phrase constantly, is any time anyone does anything that isn't being a complete cunt and it gets enough coverage that they end up reading about it. Just using the term to insult someone carries with it a few assumptions.

1) They are assuming that the "virtue" on display is disingenuous or hollow.
2) They are assuming that there is no value in displays of virtue.
3) They are assuming that being able to do something good without saying anything about it is always possible.

The problem with the first assumption is obvious. Any time anyone does something good and someone else hears about it, they can toss out the ol' "virtue signalling" accusation.

The second assumption is flawed because these types of displays of virtue are direct responses. This isn't some unsolicited "Hey guys we're awesome!" statement. They were called out in the press and by former employees and they had to respond. Staying silent isn't something they had an option to do as a company who cares about their bottom line. Trying to protect your bottom line and have a healthy recruiting pool is hardly a hollow display of virtue. Self-interested perhaps, but not without its benefits to others as well.

This leads to the third assumption. Sometimes that virtuous act comes bundled with the requirement that you actually SAY something. If you're trying to spread awareness of a disease, for example a terminal Stupidity Transmitted Disease like Trumpism. You can't just donate to charities that fund scientists looking for a cure. You have to get the word out so that others who care can donate. Likewise, if you're trying to respond to public accusations, you have to respond publicly. You aren't going to convince people to apply to your company by changing your internal culture and then not letting anyone know you're doing it. In some cases, stuff goes viral or gets more press than was intended, and there wasn't even an intent to outwardly display virtue in the first place.

Glad I don't work with y'all.

Given how triggered people get at the slightest hint that maybe people should behave themselves like professionals at work, I imagine some folks here are exactly the kind of person who is part of the problem and would find themselves without a job when they couldn't stop making inappropriate jokes and comments at work.
