no worries friend

it depends. the census estimates say that normal is 85.1% "white alone" while portland is 85.0% white alone. but if you instead consider the "white alone, not hispanic or latino" number, it's 82.5% vs. 83.6%

that's assuming you're applying standard fishmech rules of portland being the minor city in maine. the city in oregon is 76.1% / 72.2% white alone, which is an amazing 12.5% less white than a random college town in central illinois

i will say that i think the guy has potential as a writer. he's like 20, i think the odds are good that he'll grow out of this stuff especially given how it ended for him at buttcoin.

i mean he's not actually incompetent, he's just completely undisciplined. he doesn't do that lifeless oatmeal writing that people who have no ability with words put out, the problem is that he has no self-control. if he had reined himself in i think that he might actually have had a positive reception here.

I'd like to see Google trends info for "buttcoin", did it spike when the FTC said "buttcoin"?

A rather smart whale though, i mean, most whales probably can't even make words. Some would probably break the keyboard.

A bear whale? I guess they can type okay otherwise they wouldn't be able to set up their sell walls.

The subreddit kinda... died. You have 100K+ users but very few posts get over 200 upvotes. All the comments are straight-up trolling. What happened?

clearly the market has spoken. the people want trolling and who the gently caress are you to deprive them of it by fiat?

moderators are just a bullshit artificial distortion of the comment market, put in place by those subreddit fatcats to hoard the upvotes.
