    ConfusedNewby reacted to maartendc in Current GPUs enough for next gen?   
    My advice: wait another couple of months until Nvidia release their 3000 series cards, and AMD release the Radeon 5900XT or whatever it will be called. I wouldn't buy the current cards anymore, they are getting long in the tooth.

    I injected 3 FB posts, stole my mom's VCR, and then sold it to feed my addiction.

    ConfusedNewby reacted to dalekphalm in Why US college and university are so expensive?   
    *rolls eyes*
     
    Can you stop the trolling for a few moments so we can get back on topic?
     
    Education does not have to be expensive - certainly not up front to the student. If we make it that way, we basically say "Education is for people with money".
     
    The American system for paying for College and University is straight up broken. Making it so less people can afford to go to College or University isn't helping the system, it's making it even worse.
     
    Ideally, anyone who wants to - and has the grades - should be able to attend College or University. Yes, education should facilitate the needs of the economy. But it shouldn't exclusively so.
     
    People also shouldn't be pushed into College or University unless they want to - trades need to be pushed as a valid alternative a lot younger in the education system. People need to see trades as a valid alternative for getting a good paying job.

    Gaming doesn't have to be your only hobby. Maybe you still enjoy tech and computers and would find some interest in building your own home lab or learning about new operating systems.

    ConfusedNewby reacted to Semper in So how much did you boost your steam level?   
    I've honestly forgotten that steam profiles have a "level" attached to them.

    They're largely meaningless, much the same as achievements are (to me, at least.)

    I'm gonna tell you all right now: that extra 8GB stick was the best $40 I've ever spent on my rig.
    TF2 doesn't stutter anymore. Forza Horizon 4 and Forza Motorsport 7 don't hitch for a few seconds on end. I can actually have everything I want open and not face RAM limitations.

    You should make a poll for people to guess if you're drunk, high, insane, or just looking for attention.

    ConfusedNewby reacted to leadeater in Dissenter - The comment section of the internet - And a severe game-changer for free speech   
    I doubt it's actually that bad, I don't think the online world actually mirrors that closely to the in presence world. A bit like the hall of mirrors in fair ground shows, distorting views and proportions to unreal. Neither side, view, opinion, affiliation is pronounced as it seems. Extreme views are not that common and people are not in fighting in day to day lives and matters.
     
    What actually gets people disgruntled usually ties back to economic situation, since that has such strong bearings on quality of life and education. So many factors branch out from that one thing you can trace many statistics back to it, like crime or career success. A lot of political views are tied in to it as well.
     
    Get a group of people in a bad economic situation and resentment will grow, get a group of people fearing negative turn in their economic situation and resentment will grow. Personally I think what we are seeing is the effects of the decline in the true middle class, the classic family of a sole salary provider or an additional part time supplementer who can buy a a nice home (nice being important here) and pay for a good education for their children. It's these people that are trying to be vocal, they want to be heard but like many peaceful protests there are hijackers that come in and cause a riot.
     
    The above applies to the left, right, middle, whatever.
     
    What I have a problem with when it comes to a topic like this, free speech, is the ignoring of real consequences of it and that there are limits on it already. Speech really is that powerful, we all should know "The pen is mightier than the sword", and if we are to believe this then we also need to consider that such a powerful thing can be used for good and bad. And now here is the part that makes a lot of people argue back very strongly, if the amount of good is limited due to what we have to do to stop the bad (the real bad) is less worse than letting those bad things happen. People will still resent their success, ideas or whatever being limited (if at all) but stopping violence, death, radical overtake of governments is a greater benefit.
     
    The other point I'd like to address is around the complaint about not being able to express views. Very often 'example person' complaining about it actually has been able to, what they are actually complaining about, the real heart of it, is that people aren't listening or accepting of their view so will seek out a place that does. Rather than reflecting on response received they reject that feedback. Please don't reply back with examples of people getting banned from twitter or other social media platforms I am well aware of it and some of, not all, that directly applies to what I just said.

    And that is the big thing here, freedom of speech is not freedom from consequence, ever. That's never been a thing and it's pretty much what most people arguing about freedom of speech are actually talking about or wanting whether they know it or not. Neither does freedom of speech laws apply to anything other than that personal freedom towards the government. There are complications around that with other laws and precedents but the point still stands, freedom of speech has nothing to do with making comments online in private or public and obviously you are free to do so but you have to live with any consequences from that.

    With "political views" being double-speak for "racism and/or sexism", ergo nothing worthwhile was lost.
