EtcetEraThread Simpsons creator Matt Groening on Apu: 'People love to pretend they're offended'
Reason User Banned (2 Days): Inflammatory Derailment
Can't hear his response from underneath his Klan hood. The worst generation keeps being the worst generation, but it's all okay because he's white and he made a lot of money propogating racism. Can't have any introspection or anything that might hurt his money train. We all know what this is really about.

I don't like to generalize, but this is mostly a situation I have seen in the US. Seriously... people in the US gets offended by everything... and what's worse is that they like to get offended in behalf of other countries/persons. I don't get offended by the Bumblebee Man... in fact, all the people in Mexico I know likes him. The outrage you read on the internet are mostly white privileged americans with no real problems, trying to get involved in something. And I get... I appreciate the act. But seriously, none of that is offensive for the rest of the world. In fact, we wish to have those kind of problems.

EtcetEraThread How do you feel about people who pirate movies?
Reason User Warned: Advocating Piracy.
I have no problem with people who pirate movies, and I have no shame in admitting that I've done it myself, although my preferred method was Bittorrent rather than streaming. Here's my position: I've been using Linux exclusively at home for nearly two decades and I've been on the lookout for the opportunity to purchase movies digitally for years to store on my media server and play on Kodi. I don't want to go to a cinema. I don't want the hassle of ripping physical discs. I'm not interested in rental or subscription services. I just want to purchase the odd movie every now and then to keep and play on my preferred platform (Kodi). Is that really too much to ask? Apparently it is, because I've done everything in my power to find such a service, including contacting multiple companies, anti-piracy organisations, etc., and it seems that no company is providing it. So if the industry isn't interested in supporting video content on my chosen platform, what do they have to lose when I just get what I want via other means? As far as I'm concerned, my use of Bittorrent is inconsequential to the industry because the industry is not providing any competing service. With regards to other media, I do not pirate anything. DRM is pretty much dead on music, so I never have any issues playing legally purchased music on any device I own (Kodi, MP3 Player, Phone, Tablet, Linux PC, etc.), and games are limited to their platform by their nature of software/hardware compatibility anyway. Now, I don't like it when I hear of friends/family pirating music and games - especially of small artists and developers - and I'm often tempted to encourage them to buy their music and/or games, but I usually won't say anything because I feel that it might come off as snobbish. But movies? I have zero sympathy for that industry. Same goes for TV. And your co-workers OP? They sound like assholes, but that has little to do with piracy.

EtcetEraThread Online dating as a POC kinda sucks
Reason User Warned: Offensive racial generalisations
As an Indian guy it truly is hell, but I don't think racism has anything to do with it. Like I doubt many of the girls who claim to only like white guys on tinder or whatever would be swiping left on Zayn Malik or Toni Mahfud. The sad truth is that white men on average are just significantly better looking than men of any other race. Just step into any college campus and this becomes instantly evident. A better more realistic solution would be to have a government subsidized plastic surgery program for ethnic males. Getting an average ethnic male to surgically ascend his looks rating by two points might allow him to compete on a level playing field with the average white male. I know I'd be the first one to sign up.

EtcetEraThread Online dating as a POC kinda sucks
Reason User warned for using racist terminology
yep, it's true for every race. just see how oriental asians act around black men. growing up in pakistan, there was a huge demand for fair skin women and nearly all the movie and tv stars were fair skin men and women. this is a country with 70% brown skin to dark skin people. i saw my own aunts berate and just dismiss other women and men and boys because they were dark skinned. there were Nivea ads touting its power to turn brown skin women white. entire songs written for fair skin women. it was hilarious in a way. so when i see these threads wondering why white women dont find people of color attractive, i go back to how other races feel the same about brown and black people. you cant force someone to be attracted to people they arent attracted to.

Yeah he's an asshole, but she sounds like one herself as well. 1. Felt the need to "advertise" her deed on social media so she can get the validation she desires, something I'm not a fan of. I know people who advertise whenever they give a couple bucks to a homeless person on their FB or whatever (making it a "story" about how "good" it made them feel) and I find it pretty distasteful. Implies the original intention wasn't driven by any kind of altruism, more like "I cant wait to see how many likes I can get for this" and needing the world to applaud them for their "charity". 2. Even though the guy sounds like a bit of a loon, her response was both disrespectful, dismissive, and expletive laden. Not gonna celebrate her for that. She doesn't sounds like a great person herself.

Reason User banned (duration pending review): sexist redpill rhetoric, accumulated infractions.
People's expectations are skewed badly online. Women gets hundreds of likes a day from guys who just want to one time them. Many of them married or partnered up. Many of them creeps. It creates a problem for the genuine guys to get a look in. You're more than likely getting filtered out along with the hook up guys. The women because they have guys messaging them by the hundred load a day believe everyone wants them. That they are literally God's gift to manhood. Their expectations are skewed. They date the good looking/rifh dudes and get sidelined or messed around, and then complain that the guys in general are messing them about. If they could accurately filter the time wasters and creeps, they would get to half decent guys who would happily respect them and date them. Problem is the average guy isn't super good looking, not rich. Gotta keep expectations in check. tldr; it's a ckuster fuck. Good luck have batman.
