Small victory for common sense, a university in Australia went through with allowing a "controversial" speaker, even after snowflakes started a petition and screeched loudly

    Few people in Perth care, tons of SJWs in the Unis but for the most part students are not customers like they are in the states. There are no dorms to fill, no powerful groups to appease and no title IX malarkey. They tried to start a chapter of BLM here, never caught on.

    The changing of words I expected, I actually was surprised they used the word "racist" in the first place because that would admit their narrative is in the wrong. But nope, changed within hours it seems.

    I feel like every time this happens and I see their picture, they always color their hair retarded colors. Once or twice I would just say coincidence, but every god damn time there it is.. pink, purple, blue or rainbow. Why? It looks so trashy even.

    To be honest, I think inflammatory is the right word to use here.

Especially when libel law comes around.

    In all fairness, unless the piece was intended to be an editorial, that headline shouldn't have been like it was in the first place. I can imagine a younger staff writer making a mistake like that.

    Racism isn't exactly a hard, objective truth; especially in this story, when the subject is claiming it was satire. (Whether or not it was is beside the point, because the story is about that very issue.)

    The headline is somewhat excusable as a change. This is more a grammar thing that the first one shouldn't have been approved because it's badly written. It's awkwardly structured. So the single quotes here allow 'racist tweets' to work as an adjective applying to reporter.

    I disagree with the changing of things once done, but it's the better headline stylistically.

  • PsySick
    1 points Aug 03,2018, 12:49pm

    Standard editorial guidelines for the BBC. They try to avoid making assertations themselves in the headlines instead reporting on what others have said about the news. This is to reduce the shit spreading tabloid journalism and keeps it above the raggery that British newspaper reporting consists of.

    eh, they have to remain impartial, if there is even an ounce of subjectivity in an article people jump on it, rightfully so. in this case the tweets could be interpreted as satire (granted you'd have to be boneheaded to view them in this way) so the quotation marks are probably an insurance against the people who would claim that is the case. at least they're reporting on the indecent.

    The changing of words I expected, I actually was surprised they used the word "racist" in the first place because that would admit their narrative is in the wrong. But nope, changed within hours it seems.

    I feel like every time this happens and I see their picture, they always color their hair retarded colors. Once or twice I would just say coincidence, but every god damn time there it is.. pink, purple, blue or rainbow. Why? It looks so trashy even.

    To be honest, I think inflammatory is the right word to use here. She's almost undoubtedly a racist, but it should be standard fare to use the even-handed approach and give her some leeway that it was indeed just trolling people rather than sincere racism. Especially when libel law comes around.

    Honestly I'm not even upset at the racism. I don't care what some bimbo on the internet thinks. What I don't like is the insane double standards. It's as if racism is OK so long as it's against some targets and not others.

    If they want to write the rulebook then they should follow it.

    In all fairness, unless the piece was intended to be an editorial, that headline shouldn't have been like it was in the first place. I can imagine a younger staff writer making a mistake like that.

    Racism isn't exactly a hard, objective truth; especially in this story, when the subject is claiming it was satire. (Whether or not it was is beside the point, because the story is about that very issue.)

  • Lowbacca1977
    1 points Aug 03,2018, 8:16pm

    The headline is somewhat excusable as a change. This is more a grammar thing that the first one shouldn't have been approved because it's badly written. It's awkwardly structured. So the single quotes here allow 'racist tweets' to work as an adjective applying to reporter.

    I disagree with the changing of things once done, but it's the better headline stylistically.

  • PsySick
    1 points Aug 03,2018, 12:49pm

    Standard editorial guidelines for the BBC. They try to avoid making assertations themselves in the headlines instead reporting on what others have said about the news. This is to reduce the shit spreading tabloid journalism and keeps it above the raggery that British newspaper reporting consists of.

    eh, they have to remain impartial, if there is even an ounce of subjectivity in an article people jump on it, rightfully so. in this case the tweets could be interpreted as satire (granted you'd have to be boneheaded to view them in this way) so the quotation marks are probably an insurance against the people who would claim that is the case. at least they're reporting on the indecent.

While I was a strong opponent of the changes he wanted to institute, I couldn't respect the man himself more.

  • henlp
    16 points Jul 18,2018, 4:27pm

    (for some reason my previous comment wasn't showing on the thread.)

    I don't think it was just Crunchyroll. The original line (as far as I could find) was in relation with Todoroki throwing his match with Bakugo. In that context, it could have then meant "Good-Game Bastard", i.e., someone that, in Bakugo's eyes, was just feigning good sportmanship when they didn't even compete 'properly'.

    Bakugo often refers to Todoroki as being half, in reference to him having ice powers with one side and fire powers with another side. Truth is, I have no idea how they could get "GG" out of it and it makes no sense in context. Not even a GamerGate reference would make sense.

    Funimation may "spice up" with dubs with stupid cultural references, but the same cannot generally be said of their subs. "GG" is not a reference to gamergate and you're an idiot if you think it is. The intent is clearly meant to be "good game". Bakugo would not appreciate any nice comments from his rival, so that's why Todoroki is a "GG bastard". You can argue that is not a good translation, but it makes way more sense than "Gamergate bastard".

    I cancelled my decade long subscription a few months ago due to the censorship issues. I mainly subscribed to support the industry since I use torrents regardless, but I wasn't willing to pay to fund their moral and political proselytizing.

    Vote with your wallet. There is no good reason to have a subscription to Crunchyroll as long as they are pulling this shit. Especially with how little they have invested into the website, and how the convenience they previously offered now has competition.

  • henlp
    16 points Jul 18,2018, 4:27pm

    (for some reason my previous comment wasn't showing on the thread.)

    I don't think it was just Crunchyroll. The original line (as far as I could find) was in relation with Todoroki throwing his match with Bakugo. In that context, it could have then meant "Good-Game Bastard", i.e., someone that, in Bakugo's eyes, was just feigning good sportmanship when they didn't even compete 'properly'.

    But again, I also could not find the reason or context beyond that sub line, so who knows, it might just be speculation on my part.

    Pretty much everyone of note that said anything against gamergate has been outed as some sort of freak or degenerate. The literal cunt that was the story that broke this was gaslighting, cheating and emotionally abusing her SO. The trans one is clearly a mental patient and surgery didn't fix it. The one that didn't even like video games is no longer with her trusted 'sidekick' that wrote her content. One of them murdered one of their girlfriends while on shrooms.

    Even Joss 'Buffy is so strong' was a habitual cheater, such an inspiration.

    Yes, it was the twitter "bots and sock puppets" that made ArenaNet fire Price and Fries, not her own actions against known community members who did not retaliate in anyway and the subsequent uproar caused on the game's subreddit, found on a completely different platform.

    They act like NOTHING could have driven them to take the same action outside of the uproar. The same result could have happened without the uproar.

    Please, Price's comments stand on their own for being reprehensible; this wasn't an isolated incident but a pattern that includes her saying she was glad TB died of cancer. Far from being excluded from the industry because she's female, it's entirely possible that the only reason she was in the industry period was because she was female, because I'm highly suspicious of the notion that a male equivalent of her would've gotten this far.

    Wu herself isn't even a developer, not really; she's a politician at heart, and this is just another 'victim' to build a political resume around.

    I haven't played GW2 for years, and had this gone the other way, I'd have been content to remain not playing the game, but now that Arenanet has shown that it stands up for things like this, I might have to consider dusting off my launcher. It's the people who are taking Wu and Price's side that are the ones to never even consider playing the game.

    Also, every thread is just a circle jerk.

    The so-called analytics Twitter uses to determine bots is ridiculous. I tried to start a new account recently and my account was deactivated after following 4 people on twitter and not tweeting anything. The message I got was that my account portrayed the signs of being a bot account. I don't think these people know what the fuck they're talking about when they're accusing people of being bots.

    I only had to use a new account because my last account was banned for replying to a black woman saying she hated all white people and saying I hated all black people.

    Her post is still up. My account got nuked from orbit. Probably by someone throwing a rock from the Moon.

    I wonder why so many of the people on Twitter who aren't fucking Marxists keep making new accounts. Could it be because they keep getting banned for wrongthink?

    Isn't this great? This was always Gamergate's narrative. The harassment came from people who didn't genuinely belong to the movement. She's apparently agreeing with this now. Are we now saying the harassment is good, just to spite her? Or am I missing something?

    I bet most people who like to talk shit on Twitter do use secondary accounts. Why the fuck not? Especially the way they ban people for not agreeing with the borg message.

    That doesn't make them bots. They know that, it's a false truth that lets them go "ah ha! see they're not real!". No they're fucking real people, just not on their main account.

    Yes, it was the twitter "bots and sock puppets" that made ArenaNet fire Price and Fries, not her own actions against known community members who did not retaliate in anyway and the subsequent uproar caused on the game's subreddit, found on a completely different platform.

    They act like NOTHING could have driven them to take the same action outside of the uproar. The same result could have happened without the uproar.

    See her 2nd tweet:

    Almost no one claiming to be upset is an established, normal Twitter user

    translation: blue checked idiot

    That was always the goal... to make the blue check a sign of people with "good opinions" or people who "use twitter correctly." Anyone that doesnt have this mark is just a bot, sock puppet, or throwaway...

    Please, Price's comments stand on their own for being reprehensible; this wasn't an isolated incident but a pattern that includes her saying she was glad TB died of cancer. Far from being excluded from the industry because she's female, it's entirely possible that the only reason she was in the industry period was because she was female, because I'm highly suspicious of the notion that a male equivalent of her would've gotten this far.

    Wu herself isn't even a developer, not really; she's a politician at heart, and this is just another 'victim' to build a political resume around.

    I haven't played GW2 for years, and had this gone the other way, I'd have been content to remain not playing the game, but now that Arenanet has shown that it stands up for things like this, I might have to consider dusting off my launcher. It's the people who are taking Wu and Price's side that are the ones to never even consider playing the game.

    Also, every thread is just a circle jerk.

    Lol no you did not do any of this Bri. You never had a "team of volunteers", you have no means to conduct a broad analysis of twitter demography, there is no "Brianna's army", you are lying as always, but I guess you DO know a lot about sockpuppet accounts.

    The so-called analytics Twitter uses to determine bots is ridiculous. I tried to start a new account recently and my account was deactivated after following 4 people on twitter and not tweeting anything. The message I got was that my account portrayed the signs of being a bot account. I don't think these people know what the fuck they're talking about when they're accusing people of being bots.

    I only had to use a new account because my last account was banned for replying to a black woman saying she hated all white people and saying I hated all black people.

    Her post is still up. My account got nuked from orbit. Probably by someone throwing a rock from the Moon.

    I wonder why so many of the people on Twitter who aren't fucking Marxists keep making new accounts. Could it be because they keep getting banned for wrongthink?

    Hate it when people speak for me. One rude woman is not equal to "every woman in the gaming industry" for fuck's sake.

    HOWEVER, I still don't think she deserved to lose her job because a personal Twitter account isn't even really connected to the company. It was still pretty shit of Arenanet to do.

  • virtuallyvirtuous

    Isn't this great? This was always Gamergate's narrative. The harassment came from people who didn't genuinely belong to the movement. She's apparently agreeing with this now. Are we now saying the harassment is good, just to spite her? Or am I missing something?

    In Wu's world, being annoyed at someone means you have to harass them.

    It shows that Price's harassment came from bots, not from actual users. Her findings do NOT show that people were not upset.

    I bet most people who like to talk shit on Twitter do use secondary accounts. Why the fuck not? Especially the way they ban people for not agreeing with the borg message.

    That doesn't make them bots. They know that, it's a false truth that lets them go "ah ha! see they're not real!". No they're fucking real people, just not on their main account.

    Is online harassment the cause of hordes of actual women-hating gamer men who don't want women in the industry? Or is it caused by bots controlled by a small number of trolls hiding behind toy accounts? Brianna makes this no longer clear.
