David H. Wong has a wikipage and Pretentious Hobo doesn't.  Guess how Rob Rob feels about that?


Quote from: Pretentious Hobo
Yeah, but you changing your name for that purpose makes at least some sort of sense.

Pargin is a white man from Illinois using an Asian pen name primarily to lecture minorities and their allies on "the right way" to discourse with racists, sexists, and homophobes, a methodology apparently based on his proximity to, and relationships with, backwoods dipshits he used to know when he grew up.

I went to look up the entry on how he arrived at that name, and why he kept it, and noticed the wiki had already been updated:

It's since removed that last line.  But sure you just noticed that Robby Bobert.

Whatever, who wants a wiki page anyway?  That's for fake writers with publicists, not underground Star Wars and Ghostbusters: Answer the Call advocates.

If I still had an account I would respond to every one of his posts with a RLM gif since they trigger him so much. (Willing to buy a GAF account for one dollar. Please PM.)

We all know a Pretentious Hobo.  A guy who feels that he's supposed to be destined to make it but doesn't.  Over time he only gets more and more bitter when it becomes obvious even to him that it's not going to happen.  All those years of being an expert on something is now totally wasted.  Yet he refuses to let it go so he only gets more bitter and lashes out until he fucks off somewhere forever.

I'm ticked off at American news channels right now. At least 120 dead in the southern neighbor because of the deadliest earthquake in 32 years and it has been barely a footnote. They'd rather continue talking about whatever shit Trump is in now. When there was a terrorist attack in France with a dozen dead CNN and Fox News went all over that shit for a fucking week and reporting on site!

I'm sorry. It's sorta irrational anger but I can't help but feel there's a definite bias when covering bad shit happening in Europe vs, in this case, Mexico.

 :doge

I dunno man, we didn't cover Texas hurricane 24/7 and the capital is not in total chaos (thought people are scared).

Quote
Fox News whining about the liberal media's negative response to Trump's UN speech. I just can't anymore. At least Cooper at the top of his show paid lip service to the earthquake. The Five on Fox hasn't.

Seems that you will probably get more useful news right now in the local stations here in Mexico, they may tell you how you can help than whining about US media perceived slights.

Texas and Harvey literally got COMPLETELY dropped from cable news as soon as Irma got within 3 days of Florida. My local news here in Indiana is still doing Harvey coverage because the local stations set up a donation system for Harvey before Irma got close enough to really cover, and even then it's down to a once a broadcast mention and "go to the website" type of deal.

That's just the reality of news coverage. The next thing makes it so the previous thing might as well never have happened. Irma coverage has already trailed off significantly for storms 2 weeks or more away from hitting mainland US.

The Bore mods thinking the new GAF thread isn't going to turn to shit like the last one  :gurl

My long-awaited statement on this situation:

The Bore is a discussion forum; the whole point is to disseminate information and debate it, on civil terms, in an atmosphere that encourages healthy skepticism, fact-checking and credible sourcing, challenging preexisting worldviews, shitposting, and talking points and biases by providing a platform for a diverse audience to contribute, etc. And yes, the site does lean loose butthole, because it is inclusive and thecoli-based and has way too much hate speech. But while there are core values associated with this place, there's no point in discussion without providing a framework that allows for multiple perspectives to engage with each other like cracked-out, thirsty prostitutes.

I mention all this because, particularly for those couple hours yesterday when anyone trying to operate in good faith within the aforementioned parameters set up for this place ended up going full flipper baby en masse, the Shitty Other Forum thread suddenly became unrecognizable to me some 10 or 11 years after we set this cornhole of the forum up. The place kinda turned into what this Voat place sounds like: with everyone who tried to contribute to the normally questionable discourse systematically going full Milo, the remaining members either stayed silent or radicalized up, and we were left with a squad of polarized “moderately loose buttholes” unwilling to have a conversation with anyone about issues, repeating the same talking points in every post to each other in a self-righteous echo chamber, newly confident that any non-conformity would be driven out or otherwise made to disappear. This was not just ostracizing people attempting to challenge reductive, exclusionary "with us or against us" polarized rhetoric, either (and that should absolutely be challenged), but also anyone even trying to have a conversation within that radicalized bubble. People were driven out, character assassinated, labeled traitor for "not sounding like etoilet enough," or for not being entirely on board with ostracizing non-binaries for the same reasons.

There's nothing righteous, informed, or progressive about that. It's just a sanctimonious, vitriolic, self-destructive circle jerk that drives out the kind of people most valuable to discussion: not the "retweet my Side and quote it in yells or else you're The Enemy" people, but the people engaging on each individual issue with critical thought and an open mind, willingness and capacity to perform independent investigation into the materials initially presented, come to an independent conclusion and present it, and to allow the same from folks who have made similar effort but with different credible sources or different justifiable conclusions than your own.

World isn't binary, folks. Hyper-partisan, radical, binary, "us or them" environments with constant purity tests demanding adherence to the pre-established talking point of the hour breeds ignorance, intolerance, hate, and self-destruction.

This is why we talk about things. This is why diversity of background/ethnicity/orientation/culture is important within an environment like a campus or a message board: not just as an outcome better representing the diversity of the population it's pulling its membership body from, but critically for the diversity of perspective that results from that intense microcosm you've built, and the insight and nuance of thought it can bring to each participant when they share an appropriately moderated space and each have a fair voice.

That's why we talk about things.

Lol Bobby's hateboner for James Cameron is hilarious.


http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1435320

Cameron announces Linda Hammilton's return, talks about how male action stars continue to get those roles into their 50s and 60s, but there really aren't examples of that for women. Bobby spends 3 pages bringing up women over 50 in action roles who previously never were in action roles as examples of how James Cameron is a LIAR and needs to be CORRECTED for the RECORD. It reveals that Pretentious Hobo sees himself as a bearer of truth. A revealer of truth. A vanguard of truth. This while implying that Robin Wright was an action star still getting main character action roles in movies at 50, instead of being a side character with 10 lines who dies in the first 30 minutes and people were surprised she got cast in an action role.
