You have to elaborate for me to comment, I have a hard time understanding the meaning behind what you wrote and how it relates to my post ;)

P.S. I hid your duplicate post

As I said, it's related to the quote you posted. But not really directly to you. I just have something I wanted to vent basically. It's more aimed at those that think that you could remove all opinions for everything and still run a country on that. The thing is, you can not.

 

Even if you take away feelings, there are a lot of people, on both sides that have an opinion but says that opinion is a fact because it's based on a fact, but is not in itself one.

 

And lot of problems society has, has multiple way to be solved/improved, that all have some negative or positive factual outcomes. Different people can value those differently and therefore wanting the different solutions or even not wanting any of them because the main problems don't affect them. That is in my opinion what opinion is, how much you value some outcomes or things based on others. How much you value something is somewhat based on how much you know about it, but it's not everything.


“Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious. And however difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at. 
It matters that you don't just give up.”

I think all people with common sense agree that all opinions should be heard and considered. Not all opinions are equal though, and that's something to keep in mind.
Surely some opinions are more thoughtful, more informed, more coherent, and more important than others...

Also keep in mind that I started this point with the words "I think" ;)

Wrong. Im not that familiar with Kotaku itself, but Jason (the writer) is very respected and also the story blew up so much that even BioWare confirmed it to a certain extent.

Respected by who?

I am of course talking about marxist leftists. Many of whom don't realize that they themselves will likely be forced against the wall and shot, when their "glorious revolution" is over, as always.

I'm just imagining an upswelling of evangelical Christians getting ticked off and using the same antidiscrimination laws that the activists lift up to defend their hot topic of the month...

"Evangelical Christians underrepresented in Universities"

Just imagine a push for affirmative action based on religion, which is a federally protected class...

It's almost as if discrimination, whether or not it's for or against a minority or the majority, is a bad fucking idea and only tears societies apart.

 

Which is exactly what the forces at work seem to want.


Computer's don't make errors. What they do, they do on purpose. By now your name and particulars have been fed into every laptop, desktop, mainframe and supermarket scanner that collectively make up the global information conspiracy, otherwise known as The Beast.

 

You just be careful. Computers have already beaten the Communists at chess. Next thing you know, they'll be beating humans.

As a rule of thumb, putting people in boxes and allowing them to believe that life is a zero sum game... is a recipe for war. There's a long history of it and it transcends species lines. It's a borderline miracle that the US functions as well as it does, and that social fabric is being unraveled.

Well... the left wing was effectively sponsored by the Soviets during the 1960s and 1970s and is currently deeply influenced by Marxism... The right wing is admittedly being pushed by the Russians as well...

Isn't crazy how vulnerable democracies are to foreign propaganda and how the effects can last 50+ years?

Johnny Depp and Amber Herd

The Kavanaugh thing was a bit of a different issue because it involved a lifelong appointment to the Supreme Court. I don't really feel the need to do a background check on anyone involved with the making of a movie before I watch it, but I'd like one of the top 10 most powerful judges in the country to be someone who doesn't break the law.

 

Besides, it doesn't appear that manufactured outrage is ever a good career move in the end. Just ask Jussie Smollett how well it's working out for him. I don't really give a flying crap whether or not my actors, actresses, directors, etc. have always been goody two-shoes. I'll make an exception for one of the people who actually gets to influence laws.

Not really. False accusations are false accusations, the only thing using it against political opponents as a political party demonstrates your morals (or lack thereof) as a political party.

I never said they weren't. I'm just saying that there's a difference between celebrity worship and lawmaking.

 

I also kind of wish I could still believe that political parties could be reasonably expected to have morals.

The logic of people nowadays: Why would you fix your own sh*t when you can play the victim card and demand others to fix it for you ;)

Also, do not immediately believe any accusations of this sort, you need to prove someone to be guilty to be able to say that they actually are guilty. A great example of this was the fairly recent Brett Kavanaugh controversy in the US.

Lets not go there.

 

I have a personal belief that people dont form strike or make accusation at work public unless there was a reasion.

 

Internet is one thing, the potential to loose your career and get a bad reputation in the industry is anothera11

They don't even need to be false (in the mens rea sense). They just need to be inaccurate. If I see a bunch of people hiding in my house, honestly and sincerely fear for my life and call the police only for it to turn out to be a surprise birthday party... that doesn't mean I filed a false report, however the aforementioned report didn't describe a legitimate threat. 

 


An effect such as this very well could have occurred with Blasey-Ford. She could have interpreted events incorrectly, or pointed at the wrong guy. Her emotions seem sincere - with that said, it's also possible for people to try to recall bad memories while describing other events.

I'm sorry, but why does society insist that men are always harmful and women can do no wrong unless they have political beliefs that aren't accepted by most media?

Both genders are equally fucked up in their own ways. There's no ifs, ands or buts about that. Neither gender is perfect, nothing's perfect. We're humans, not robots with intricately designed everythings so we don't fuck up.

I don't know, it seems to me that whenever anything like this happens the first to pile up are the "b-b-but men can be good too" crowd. This isn't even a protest against society, it's squarely directed at riot and enacted by riot's own employees; why do you feel such a compelling need to jump in and defend "men" without knowing any of the details and not even give the protesters the benefit of the doubt?

On 5/7/2019 at 10:44 PM, Morgan MLGman said:

Well, that's precisely what I meant in my original comment - it's easy to destroy someone's reputation and career, it's harder to provide any legitimate proof to back claims like that.

It's also easier to relate and feel sorry for the victim, but as Ben Shapiro once said: "Facts don't care about your feelings", which may at first sound harsh but is quite accurate when you think about it.

Ben Shapiro exclusively deals in feelings during his speeches. Facts, logic and the scientific consensus are firmly against most of his views. I never heard a single member of his fanbase question him or demand proof of his claims, yet they will demand it from any opposing figure at every step and then proceed to close their ears and shout when said evidence is provided.

 

If someone claimed they were robbed would you be so insistent on asking for hard proof before listening to anything they say or would you give them a chance to make their case in due time? There are multiple reports of forced arbitration and sexist behavior at riot, including an in-depth report from Kotaku as mentioned in the OP, you're automatically dismissing them as lies because...? Even riot themselves admit there is a problem, though they don't seem very committed to solving it. Seems to me like you're letting your feelings speak here...

 

Not to mention a workplace can be toxic without being illegal (at least in a way that can be easily proven), that doesn't mean workers don't have a right to protest against their working conditions.

As a white, good looking, well built male - I fear for every interaction I have with every person who could claim something that is not true - because in the Court of Social Law I will lose based just on being...a white, good looking well built male.

Being a male is the only characteristic that makes you statistically more likely to be incarcerated. Being white reduces that likelihood by two orders of magnitude, at least if you live in the US. I couldn't find any statistics on "good looking" people being incarcerated...

On 5/7/2019 at 10:38 PM, Bouzoo said:

Every person, be it a male or a female, should be sued for the same sentence as the alleged perpetrator was in case it was a false allegation. If you are ready to destroy someones life you better be ready to carry the consequence. 

There's already a crime for that, it's libel or defamation - assuming it is done intentionally as is likely in the case of AH. If you think defamation is a crime on the same level as rape or home abuse you need help. Victims of abuse have enough problems without having to worry that their requests for help or justice may lead to their own incarceration if insufficient proof is found. Just imagine being in that situation, then think back on what you just proposed.

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

Sounds like you should complain to your boss - if you're a "target" for something serious like workplace discrimination, sexual abuse, gaslighting and forced arbitration you shouldn't let it slide. Of course, if your boss is the problem maybe you need to go through different channels to be heard... for example a protest, imagine that.

Bravo for what? If you suffer workplace abuse it's not your fault and if you don't then it's not really an accomplishment, it's more like luck.
