  1. Look at modern medicine, if we relied solely on the immune system then we would still be in the dark ages. We have actively eradicated diseases, we wash our hands and have sewage systems and water treatment. It's a great metaphor but you have to look at it properly, we're talking about cleaning our social environment as we try with our physical environment. This is idea of over protection... its not a new concept its been around for millennia, it's called bad parenting. Its not exclusive to any culture or social class. I'd agree with you that bad parenting is, well, bad. You talk about being prepared for the realities of the world, its those realities we are trying to change one step at a time. "When we remove we remove emotional adversity in everyday life we are left with people who cannot handle mundane adversity inevitable in life" thats an oxymoron. If we have removed emotional adversity in everyday life then its not inevitable in life, and if it is inevitable in life then its not been removed from everyday life. Problems arise when people are used to a better environment than the one they are in. They arise in the transition to a better society. Everything is relative, as we remove larger problems the smaller ones seem larger. Also you have to acknowledge the concept of the straw that broke the camels back. whilst some reactions to 'micro aggressions' are as a result of their perception of being larger (There's a discussion to be had about where the burden lies but thats beyond the scope of this i feel) others are a result of a culminations of many 'micro aggressions'. We also have to keep in mind the differences in backgrounds between people what some might describe as 'privilege'. Without the understanding of others experiences it is easy to misclassify something as a micro aggression. Just racial slurs were once considered normal and almost meaningless to the people that used them casually, derogatory language about people with disabilities is common place and often meant with no ill will to an individual of a community but still expresses negative views against the community as a whole.
  2. Why should you be able to speak on this issue but not me? Any argument you have for me not having grounds to speak on the issue could be applied to you as well. I saw the complaint when linus mentioned it on the wan show. The responses I saw were in the chat. You can't have a proper discussion about this is issue in a livestream chat. That is why I made my response on the forum so we could engage in proper debate over the issue at hand. - Luke hasn't been apart of LMG for some time it's reasonable for someone who has been watching LTT for a while to be new to the wan and not know the preexisting relationship their. LMG 100% wants to and is growing, as a part of that they are going to reach new people everyday. To not consider that in their content is A) bad business B) just inconsiderate, every single viewer of WAN had their first WAN. We shouldn't be punishing somebody for not being a long time viewer. I get where you are coming from, and I do not think linus was wrong to joke with luke in the way that he did. I was just trying to highlight the negative side which appeared to be overlooked. Linus is a very funny and entertaining person to watch and I think him no longer making deprecating jokes about Luke's dyslexia would ruin or change that. I therefore don't see much downside but I do see a huge benefit which is why I think this is a reasonable request.
  3. A common a counter argument raised is that people should have thicker skin. Take a second to think about what that actually means. Its okay to say hurtful things because they should be used to them. Thick skin comes from wounds healing and the skin thickening as a result. Call me crazy but shouldn't we be aiming to reduce pain, physical and emotional? Also have you heard of the phrase the straw that broke the camels back? Thick skin only gets you so far. A single comment in isolation doesn't do a lot. Its the cumulative effect of many often from multiple people. ----------------- I get, right now, people are feeling like they are having their right to speak and express themselves taken away without discussion without agreements without consideration. This is a problem, but I ask that you consider individual actions you are being asked to take. Take the time to consider others viewpoints as we should take the time to consider yours. For progress to happen we need to compromise, we need to compromise even if we're 100% right. Nobody should just be told what to do that isn't freedom that's fascism. This is why I tried to explain the problem with what had been said. It's why I posted it in a forum so that we can have a discussion about this and find a solution.
  4. A couple things, i tried to make it clear but evidently failed. There is difference between a joke between friends and a joke in a show. I have no issue with how Linus jokes with his friends of camera, it's about context. If you say something that upsets someone it's reasonable for them to ask you not to say those sorts of things. As I said I don't think it says anything about Linus as a person. He didn't go out intending to hurt someone but unfortunately he did. My motivation for writing this post was the response people had hearing about someone being genuinely upset over linus' joke who had dyslexia. I am not hear to say that anybody should be offended by what linus said. I watched the original wan show wheee the joke was made and didn't think anything of it. I am just trying to defend someone who was. I didn't talk about my personal relationship with dyslexia because I don't think anybody's views should be more or less valid based on a physical characteristic. Surely the goal is a society where we are all are treated equally regardless of sex gender sexuality ethnicity or disability. If that is what we want we need to acknowledge the individuality of members of a community that not all people are going to react the same. We should also be making sure these conversations are open to everyone and not require people to give their whole life story to prove they have the right to speak on the issue. Addendum I: I have issues with people being offended by jokes as well, in this situation however, I don't believe it was understood to be a joke. This is why I stressed the importance of context and circumstance. Addendum II: If I gave the impression that I thought Linus bullied anybody I am sorry, It was not my intent to do so. What I meant by the phrase 'normalise bullying' was without the context of Linus' and Lukes long friendship, which not all viewers of WAN would have, the joke could be seen, and was seen by some, as being rude to luke over his dyslexia. By having an influencer portraying this as okay it allows others to think its okay to be rude to somebody over their learning difficulty/disability. Not necessarily consciously but at some level it influences our behaviour.
  5. Following Linus' acknowledgement of a viewers distress over a dyslexia comment aimed at luke and after reading the live chat I thought it prudent to talk about this. Let me preface this by saying, I understand the intent was good and I'm not here to criticise Linus would say that'd be friendly fire. When you make a joke based on something like dyslexia, you run into issues of individuals insecurities and normalising bullying. In this case it was dyslexia but with any learning difficulty or disability there is a huge social stigma attached to it. When you see someone laughing about someones characteristic it is easy for a witness, in this case a viewer, to feel like that action was motivated because of someones characteristic. It's easy to just dismiss it as a joke but if someone made a similar comment based on skin colour in a public forum such as a live stream the speaker would be branded as a racist regardless of the prexisting relationship between the individuals or the intent behind the comment. This is why I say it normalises bullying, so many people get bullied or lose out on jobs because of disabilities and learning difficulties. Take a second about the stereotypes associated with the word autism, people are risking their childrens lives by not vaccinating over fears of giving their child autism as though it is something to be ashamed of. This stigma exists for dyslexia too. So many kids are told they are slow or stupid, they are bullied throughout their education either institutionally and by the faculty or by other students. Linus has had a huge positive impact on my life, but I have to ask myself if his content can change someone for the better could it change someone for the worse. Unfortunately, the answer is yes. I honestly don't believe that Linus has a negative view of anybody based on disability or learning difficulties. I think he is just uninformed, which is okay as we cannot expect anybody to know anything, and if someone like linus can be uninformed on this issue I suspect others might be as well. I hope this provides useful insight and I am happy to talk more about this if people have questions. Have a great day Addition: This was a response to another user but I thought it prudent to include in the original post as I talk about the impact that change may have as well as discussing the issue of understanding the relationship between Luke and Linus and the burden on the viewer. "Luke hasn't been apart of LMG for some time it's reasonable for someone who has been watching LTT for a while to be new to the wan and not know the preexisting relationship their. LMG 100% wants to and is growing, as a part of that they are going to reach new people everyday. To not consider that in their content is A) bad business B) just inconsiderate, every single viewer of WAN had their first WAN. We shouldn't be punishing somebody for not being a long time viewer. I get where you are coming from, and I do not think linus was wrong to joke with luke in the way that he did. I was just trying to highlight the negative side which appeared to be overlooked. Linus is a very funny and entertaining person to watch and I think him no longer making deprecating jokes about Luke's dyslexia would ruin or change that. I therefore don't see much downside but I do see a huge benefit which is why I think this is a reasonable request." The "Best Answer" is a TL;DR of my position written by another user which I am very grateful for. It's difficult to get a post to be the perfect length. Trying to balance readability and information is difficult especially over a complex issue where ambiguity can lead to friendly fire and long arguments where both parties agree. Again I will say thank you for reading what I had to say, understanding it and sharing the themes in a compact way.
  6. Trying to run a modded minecraft server, (FTB Presents Skyfactory 3) Downloaded the server pack of twitch, Agreed to the Eula Edited the settings .sh and .bat so the min ram was 1024M and the max was 6144M left the permgen_size at 256M because I didnt know what changing that would do. Tried to run serverstart.bat and recieved this # A fatal error has been detected by the Java Runtime Environment: # # EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION (0xc0000005) at pc=0x00000000667bf5c8, pid=11532, tid=0x0000000000001b24 # # JRE version: Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (8.0_251-b08) (build 1.8.0_251-b08) # Java VM: Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (25.251-b08 mixed mode windows-amd64 compressed oops) # Problematic frame: # V [jvm.dll+0x71f5c8] # # Failed to write core dump.

I've had other issues when trying to run this server pack before, so I deleted the folder and reinstalled now its throwing this out at me.
