LOL, in the Equifax story I like the line about bumper sticker concerning the Citizens United decision:

"I'll believe corporations are people when Texas executes one."

I agree with that sentiment.
 
Truth is brutal. Prepare for pain.

any article on hate groups that fails to mention anti-white, anti-asian, anti-christian, anti-police is not worth 10s of your time.

It probably doesn't mention them because they make up like 0.01% of the hate groups on Steam, and thus is not a problem of the same scale. The article would be mighty long if they listed every possible anti-everything group.

Which is why any guy that complains about this isn't worth responding to. It's just more "all lives matter" or "when's white history month"ing. As if each problem is equal in magnitude and therefore must have equal time.

In a way, the Equifax hack kind of released everyone from worries about hacking. I mean, the bad guys now have EVERYTHING of yours already anyway. No need to worry about future hacks.

Thanks, Equifax!

I like the idea about giving it the Corporate Death Penalty, but all that would happen is they would reincorporate as Equifaxx, and it's business as usual.
OR, the might decide to get out of the credit industry altogether and go into porn as EquifaXXX.

Seems fair to write those people off as white supremacists.

Yeah, I imagine that's what they are going for anyway.

Proving it well, here's some putz from Texas claiming that, since people call him a Nazi, he wears a Death's Head pin to shut them up.

Hours later, he was arrested for convincing his friend to shoot into a crowd of unarmed people as they drove by.

it's all part of steam's cosmic background though, "sincere" intent or no; i find a lot of times when i click someone's name in a discussion thread their profiles will be filled with nazi iconography, nazi or pro-trump themed groups, "FILL STEAM WITH WINDMILLS" swastika comments, etc. it's just everywhere, it's normalized, and "LOL ITS JUST A PRANK!!" doesn't hold water. it's a really fucking bad idea to mix satire with sincerely held beliefs. the character is supposed to represent that divide.

the ones i find truly baffling are the russians with SS or Wolfsangel symbols with their geneology listed as their profile description.

like, guys, did they not teach you about the great patriotic war in school? it doesn't matter if you're 23% norwegian, you're still a slavic subhuman in the eyes of real nazis you fucking morons.

Yeah, I'd argue decent people don't make jokes or act edgy like this (not to say they can't grow up, but they're shitheads now), and the impact is the same regardless, as people can't sit back and tell if every person is joking or sincere, they just see white supremacist iconography. Seems fair to write those people off as white supremacists.

"Hate groups" might be overstating it. It has a lot of edgy Trumptard teenagers naming their 3 or 4 person groups edgy things and using edgy pictures. Not surprised Valve isn't enforcing their own rules against such groups though.
