Now, now, let's be fair. It was 14 kids.

Since the other 3 were adults that makes someone being mad at video game framerates totally equivalent.

i don't understand why people gotta go all hyperbolic when it comes to people like totalbiscuit.

dude was a narcissist with a giant over-inflated ego (155 IQ lmfao), who backed a movement that from day 1 was entirely about misogyny, and who was, at best, extremely irresponsible and uncaring when it came to the effects that making GBS threads on other people while having a gigantic following has, and at worst was fully aware of those consequences and willfully employed them. either way, dude sucked, we don't need to compare him to fuckin mass shooters to say that he was lovely.

When did I say that? What I said is that in a world where digital communication is everpresent, things like digital communication are hugely important and are shaping how word gets out.

Guess what, the internet is real life, get with it and pull your head out of your rear end. Saying poo poo like "I hope you get cancer" or "we should target harassment onto women who want to be in the games industry" online is no different from saying it in real life, and you should expect to get punished for it. Pulling this weak-rear end "lol i trol u" poo poo like you're in the last century or some poo poo isn't going to fly anymore.

But okay I guess, "the internet doesn't matter", sure. The only voice that matters is the conventional media one, where it's all privileged white guys all the way down, you're right.

Or, to put it another way, when you direct a harassment campaign, you should probably be aware that there’s a non-zero chance of monsters like the Parkland guy being in it.

I always thought r/the_Donald was supposed to be an ironic sub, not actually full of real supporters...

Granted I've never gone on it to know that, but it's one of the biggest subreddits on the site, I didn't think that many people legitimately supported Trump. I've just taken a quick look at the contents and jesus christ, why hasn't it been nuked from orbit already.

It had a lot of bots. If you compare the total number of users to the number of active users on any particular day, you'll see that a ton of accounts suddenly stopped vising in January of 2017.

Most of the American population doesn't vote ( mind boggling as an Australian, we have to vote here or get fined) and lots of other stuff being levelled at Trump regarding how he got the votes is in enough to call into question how much support he truly has.

But on reddit, I thought his support base would just be nonexistent.

There's a meta-analysis that tracks reddit accounts' visits to specific subreddits, and as I recall the pattern was that slowly mras, white supremacists, and gamergaters started spending more time on the_donald than on whatever reddit they came from, and once there started visiting the other nodes more frequently, so a redpill type would first start vising the_donald and then start visiting nazi subs, and the same would be true of the others. Fatpeoplehate apparently had the biggest crossover with the_donald and the most active engagement with mra and nazi subs.

A lot of reddit is full of angry internet nerds complaining about the SJW leftist boogieman trying to keep them down. There's even one woman's issues subreddit and half the comments in any given post are inevitably men telling the poster that they're wrong and dumb or that their issue isn't real. There was a bout of drama recently where it came to light that one subreddit - another women's subreddit focused on breast issues and bra-size support - had a massive influx of creeps jerking off to the topics and pretending to be women to skeeve on posters in their private messages.

Except for the /bingingwithbabish subreddit. And /retrogaming is actually pretty cool too.

Especially the political subreddits which clearly deserve to be cleansed with fire, without exception.

I'll say that my only experience with Reddit is when doing Google searches for game-related issues (not technical issues, but tips/strategy), and it struck as somewhere where you could find a specific for a specific game or category, and then just drop in and ask about it. I know that doesn't sound like much, but here on SA, the issue I have is that you need to hope there's a thread running based on that topic. Like I wanted to ask about something pertaining to VtM:B, but the thread for it had fallen into the archives, and I couldn't find another thread that really related to it.
