No one WANTS to be interested in politics you dumbass, we want poliera to go back to going through 1 or 2 OT per year.
I don't mind listening. I don't like being attacked for something I didn't even do. But alas, if you all feel that screaming about the rich at everything and everyone is gonna yield you results then fine.
Second time you've brought this up, if you don't want us in here then at least have the courage to explain why and ask us to leave. But as far as I can see, this is a thread for discussing US politics and that covers Biden
It reminds me of the old fascist State Police in my country. People and opinions just *poof* disappeared.
The man who's network is half women? The man who literally handed the reigns of TYT to a woman? Sure, he did some dumb shit as a younger dude. Many of us have. I mean, Joy Ann Reid posted hateful shit on her own blog and lied her ass off about it. How many of you still watch her? And no doubt, hes gonna have to answer for those things in debates. But personally, I have no reservations about his policies.
I do think many of you including myself are living in a bubble re warren. I am getting surrounded by Hillary 2.0 vibes here in MN. My wife says she doesn’t like warren. My coworker best bud says warren is a gun to the head candidate. My mom my dad don’t like warren. These are all lifelong dems and they all don’t like warren. I love her and donate to her and I hope she wins the whole thing. But honestly just the vibe to me is that she’s fucking worse than Hillary at this point in terms of talking about her from people I know. And honestly I will say she looks like a crazy pissed off bird woman in all all these debates. Everyone i watch these debates with says with no prompting damn she looks fucking crazy. Her fucking eyebrows don’t move (and that’s true). Just saying anecdotally I get Hillary vibes and it ain’t good.
And all the media does is smile and nod. Bernie or death
The poliera thread feels like shoving my head in a stapler. My god.
I'm kind of glad the women's division isn't prominently featured. It leaves more time for the better wrestlers, some of whom barely get time as it is.
PoliERA is one of the worst places I've ever discussed politics online, and there's a lot of bad places I've tried to discuss politics online. You all are so damn up your own asses that you clearly are incapable of even trying to understand anyone not inside your bubble.
I think Rachel Dolezal is the perfect VP pick for Warren tbh, they share a lot of values.
“Bernie bro”, “rose twitter”, “leftist”, “liberal”, “neolib shill”. EVERY FUCKING DAY. This community is rotted.
Man. I had to just hit ignore on the Etc thread. And the OP, too, who was so thirsty to make sure every complaint got a new threadmark. As the thread descended into a dogpile and banfest it just got really difficult to stomach. I'm hoping that if I can just use the ignore list feature I can enjoy the site a bit more than I have been, but it seems like toxic behavior by people who are ideologically aligned with the moderation's positions is bound to go unchecked, while crossing the moderation's personal beliefs will pretty much catch you a ban one way or another - usually because of the assertion that such disagreement constitutes "defending sexism," or "dismissing racism," no matter how careful the person is to say that they abhor sexist and racist actions they believe are happening, "Drive-by" is one that only comes out if you're not in lock-step, despite dozens of completely disingenuous, unsubstantiated, dismissive one-liners that are on the preferred side of a discussion flying by with no problem; it's a good catch-all if the mods just want to hit mute on someone who isn't down with the position being taken. This is not to say RLM is above criticism, but the discussion is never about criticizing a thing someone said, it's a rush to make a broader judgement call on who the person is. In that kind of environment it is really difficult to make this case that "I don't think they're that kind of person - here's why," even though that's the exact question being begged when the OP begins a crusade to cancel someone. And it's difficult because going there to make the discussion about the kind of person they are is engaging more with the general than the specific complaint, which treads into appearing to "handwave" or "dismiss" or "defend." I love how progressive this place is - the political threads are really fun for me for that reason, this is all just about the toxicity of the discussion trajectory that happens time and again and how moderation enables it. I don't notice it so much when the target is something I'm less familiar with, or if I agree unreservedly in the takedown in progress. In the case of RLM, it disturbed me quite a bit.
Trump hiding for days, scared of Teflon Joe. Sad!It's a gamer site. Therefore it's loaded with secret Trumpers.
That was actually a good speech by President Trump. Peace folks, peace. No twitter for a couple of days also, Donald.
Even if it wasn't for your obvious distaste of middle eastern people you are the dumbest fucking person on this forum. True baby brain stuff
For fuck's sake this is one of the stupidest things I've ever seen you post. White supremacy is tied to America's economic system. That's what systemic racism is.
Can I interest anyone in some Lenin in these trying times?
I am actually extremely excited because based on all the indisputable proof against trump, his conduct and abuse of power, his history of sexual harassment, etc. We have all this proof and thats great because it beans one of two things: 1. If the senate trial occurs before the 2020 election thanks to all the facts 100 perent of all senators will vote to remove him or 2. whatever democrat runs against trump in 2020 will obtain all 538 electoral votes. What a great time to be alive
Behavior starts at the top!
Mods here have totally no bias at all.
It isnt even that hard to search if you really cared
Resetera is fucking garbage for this and the moderators are nothing but pieces of shit bullies. I am overjoyed you made this decision! They don’t deserve you here! So I guess this means goodbye for me too. Never really posted much on here but enjoyed reading. Farewell!
Since you've clearly read my PM I sent after you asked to send moderation complaints privately and there is no answer despite me trying to keep this private, Imma be real damn clear and real damn public here. Simply put, it's a BAD FUCKING LOOK for you to be not just a moderator but an administrator on this site that claims to have strict rules on piracy and do what you did to the SJ thread. This is a site where piracy in general is frowned upon and people can get banned or threads can be closed for the mere suggestion that they've done it no matter the reasons or circumstances. We can see an example of it here in this thread with people reminiscing about emulation that you personally closed because it amounted to admission and/or advocating of piracy. Yet you're the same admin who looks the other way on many manga threads whose foundations are built on this because of the history of late manga localizations. Not only that, you actively admit to piracy yourself weekly in these threads. The time people brought up the hypocrisy in the way the site has handled manga piracy and the way discussion of illegal chapters has been normalized, you ducked out of the conversation. That's a bad look on its own, a worse one when we consider the thread linked above that you closed yourself. You are a hypocrite as an admin. And now, I make one manga thread on this site where the rules of this site are actually respected, one thread that can legitimately be taken seriously on this front while not having to disrupt the rules and habits in other threads and that's the one thread you close? Because apparently, that one is redundant despite the clear support it's had and despite the fact that you didn't even give it a chance to settle in yet all these other threads normalizing discussion of illegally released material that those who prefer reading officially have to steer clear from are fine and you let those fly, actively partaking yourself? It's fine to be a hypocrite but it's not fine to have a thread about a particular magazine? I'll say it again. It is a bad fucking look for you to do what you've done. It's hard to take you seriously as an administrator of this site. If this is somehow bannable despite just wanting a thread for discussion of legally released material and despite me telling you this privately and you not responding, then whatever, you've already lost whatever credibility you had in my eyes anyway.
What a turd Alyssa Milano is. But she's a smokin' hot white woman so there will never be any convincing her that she isn't a political genius who just knows more than everyone else. She's a more youthful Susan Sarandon. More fertile, or closer to fertility. Dudes can be led around by their dicks so she's super fucking useful. Danger.
I'm not stupid enough to say anything in that thread, but... If we saw right-leaning forums say the same things about right-leaning protests and riots, we'd not skip a beat to call the posters out for all but advocating for violence and disorder.
lol no Lib is gonna riot for that ghoul
If COVID is the reason Trump loses, can we say it was worth it? Would trading 100k+ lives be a fair trade to oust this psycho?
what the fuck is wrong with this forum? We had a mass exodus of political regulars, solid and valuable members to the site as whole, due to the alienation caused by the Tara reade thing and now we have forum moderators coming here and spinning more shit. What does your second sentence even mean? Why is it even said? are you guys literally trying to just denounce anything against Biden and shit up any meaningful political threads?
We seem to be very different with our view of race. You realise you can be a shitty minority right? Blaming your style of opinion has nothing to do with your race. It's something that anyone can have.
PoliEra's greatest hits: -Is Single Payer good? -2016 yall -That dang Bernard -lol joke candidates (ft. Delaney et al) -Fuck Trump and his merry gang of fascists -BidenGaf
Why are you an asshole?
What kind of pillow-fucking, furry-loving, child-porn advocating cunt have you got to be to consider Mike’s posts worthy of a perm?
While most of the time it’s used by the alt-right to criticize anyone who remotely disagrees with them, I’ll admit the term “sjw” really does fit some people who are always pushing further and further left and if you aren’t close to their level you’re either a bigot or an enabler of bigotry. I find that level often pushes people who would otherwise be left of center closer to a centrist or right policy since they’re “always wrong”. And no, this is not a hand wave of Rich’s horrible stream rant or some of the more questionable things RLM have said. The actual problematic content should be criticized as is, but it should not be an excuse to relitigate every piece of content they’ve ever put out to try and determine if the content was secretly bigoted in nature.
So I've had enough of this BS shithole of a forum and its muppet moderators. What's a good way to do an account suicide?
Just found these online, but not in my size. Reeee! Also looks like we’re getting 3 dope Low Dunks colorways in the summer. Gonna see if I can cop any of them.
I disagree with all of them. Is this thread only for centrists?
This is EXACTLY why those of us with cooler heads insisted "Believe Women" means "treat the allegations seriously and investigate appropriately." If the details of the Salon article are anywhere close to accurate there is a lot of behavior by both posters and mods in the original thread that's going to age REALLY badly once a more thorough look at Reade is completed.
Isn't there an official thread for this Biden bedwetting stuff? Again, we're in a pandemic claiming 99% of the news cycle. I'm not saying this news isn't important, but on the totem pole of important or interesting things we should be talking about here, this Biden stuff should be somewhere at the bottom.
Yeah, this Biden story so far seems to be living exclusively in low rent conservative media, not even Fox or OANN have run with it yet. Makes me think it's already been investigated and no corroborating evidence could be found. If Biden did this, used his aides to create a situation where he would be alone with this woman to assault her, it wasn't the first or last time. That's not some rookie move, it's something you've done before and know you could get away with, and there would be other accusers.
