The magnificent story of Dwayt al-Shrood.



gently caress there's a guy on my facebook who is constantly posting corona memes and anti-trudeau stuff, and is now switching over to anti gun ban posts calling trudeau a dictator. I want to touch the poop, but I don't think that's a great idea.

What happened to facebook anyway? I go on like once or twice a day and it's nothing but food pictures, album covers and covid/gun control memes and conspiracy theories.

While "try to" makes it not sound as bad, "storm" makes it sound worse.

But I guess "armed protesters walk inside capitol building and yell dumb things" doesn't make for a great headline.

Edit: To clarify, it's super hosed-up, but "storm" makes it sound like an insurrection.

If they're armed with rifles I'd say storm is a valid verb.

What's really fantastic about the Trudeau dictator thing is Kenney went and legislated himself doing the same thing for any law he pleases but they're not calling him out because he's hard right conservative.

When the internet was still just a network of message boards between a bunch of universities, each september with the new intake of students there would be an influx of new users unfamiliar with posting ettiquette, thus making it a rough time for established users.

When AOL (I think) first opened it up to basically anyone, this new user influx never stopped. The internet was flooded with more and more people who had no grounding in the established traditions of the net at that time, to the point they basically entirely usurped the original culture and replaced it with their own. Much to the annoyance of the old guard. Thus every day since then has been the eternal september.

A decades old bisexual advocacy group has utterly destroyed their reputation in the span of a few days.

How? By claiming it has a copyright on the bisexual pride flag. When both the creators own statements saying it was free to use and US copyright law not allowing simple geometric shapes like pride flags to be copyrighted.

https://twitter.com/Catastrfy/statu...471201633406984

The backlash to this attempt to enforce a nonexistent copyright was so big binetusa's twitter account was deleted temporarily, and people started messaging/tweeting the president of the org, faith cheltenham, to ask what the hell was going on. Then she added fuel to the fire by repeatedly insinuating that everyone angrily asking what the hell is going on is only doing so because they are racist.

All they needed was a more motivated leader. You can't always count on heroic time travelers going back in time to kill Hitler and prevent the Beer Hall Putsch, there's a lot more wannabe Hitlers than there are heroic time travelers.

Honestly this whole thing depresses me. Sure it's not technically enforceable, but a group this delusional will still send put C&D's anyway. And the independent artists they're going after will probably have to give in if they can't find a lawyer to work pro bono.

People who worked with Faith Cheltenham before paint them as a bully and a narcissist, which seems lines up with the original tweets. Faith thinks they speak for all of BiNet and BiNet speaks for the entire bisexual community. No need to even try to gauge even the most general feeling of the bi community, Faith knows what's best for all of us.

Here's a good thread about Faith's attitude https://twitter.com/DrGBeth/status/...4252949506?s=19
