Religion and Philosophy / Re: Christian News Network fundies

Many of the worst people on Christian News Network are being "assembled" and organized into a discussion group by Lady Checkmate, which is REALLY interesting to me because she mostly keeps to her two echo chambers on Disqus and only goes to Christian News Network to upvote Amos.

Here is the channel she is using for this purpose:
https://disqus.com/home/channel/communitycouncil/

Here's the thead where she makes the call-out:
https://disqus.com/home/discussion/channel-communitycouncil/socks_trolling_christian_news_network/

She's keeping her "Peewee the Troll" story alive and well and amazing no one is calling her on it, gullible little sheep they are.  That's right, Lady Checkmate, you are only being "trolled" by one single person with 6 million accounts.

Politics and Government / Re: Russia Banned from Winter Olympics

Of course Putin is blaming the United states for this because he could in no way no how cause an olympic doping scandal at an Olympics he was hosting. It's his typical defense when the Russian people get mad at him, to blame the United States for everything.

Just another example of him pretty much taking all the worst parts of the Soviets and continuing that legacy.

Though I don't know if he's caused any famines yet, he's at least continued the blame-shifting for his problems and the suppression of free speech for his political adversaries much in the same way.

Yeah, I'm certainly enjoying the game overall. Even the combat, if only the strategic side of it. Just a shame that anything involving timing and reflexes on my part tends to get lost in translation.

Still impressive that they managed to make as good a game as they did, given how poorly-optimized the engine was.

Anyone else played the original Witcher? Let's just say trying to make an action RPG with the same engine as Knights of the Old Republic and Dragon Age: Origins wasn't exactly the greatest of ideas.

You normalize and tacitly encourage and accept racism and/or naizism, and give credibility to the un-creditable "just joking" defense, depending which you were talking about.

Are people still arguing for the merits of "ironic" racism? FFS!

I guess you're not a Dave Chappelle fan, then.

Well Dave Chappelle isn't, he quit the show because he thought it had gone too far and that white people were laughing at it for the wrong reasons. 

As far as the whole "Are they trolls or real Nazis":

You are walking in the wilderness and the grass starts moving.  If you think "Oh shit a Tiger!" and run up the nearest tree, only for it to turn out to be just the wind, what happens?  You feel dumb for a few minutes.

If you think "Meh just the wind" and then a tiger jumps out and attacks you when your back is turned, what happens?  Congratulations, You're dead.

If you can't tell the difference it's perfectly reasonable to err to the side of caution.

And what happens if we don't err on the side of caution in this scenario?
