The Daily Harassment of Women In the Game Industry

Karmashock Re:Pft (957 comments)

I said I wouldn't say anything more but this was just too funny...

"change agnostic"

What does that even mean?

""Agnosticism is the view that the truth values of certain claimsâ"especially claims about the existence or non-existence of any deity, as well as other religious and metaphysical claimsâ"are unknown or unknowable.""

So if we take that you mean "the view that certain values are unknowable"... how do I combine that concept with change?

This appears to be mental vomit. You've got melted ice cream mixed with your masticated steak. They don't go together and make no sense in context.

Anyway... that little pearl of stupidity had to be stunned and then transfixed to a collection board. Seriously... bravo... that was some impressively meaningless babble.

Yes and every deluded fanatic sees evil in the face of everyone he meets.

What did that little bit of circular reasoning get you, halfwit?

You bore me... you know nothing, aren't terribly clever, lack any apparent creativity, and aren't especially funny.

You have no value to me or anyone else here. I amused myself for a time coming up with insults to throw at you. It was at least diverting. But you're too stupid to even understand most of them which spoils it.

I won't waste any more of my time on you.

The Daily Harassment of Women In the Game Industry

Karmashock Re: Pft (957 comments)

To imply women are lessor I'd have to imply I am greater. I didn't say I was superior, you sniveling halfwit. I made a statement of identity.

Lets say you don't eat meat. And you state that. Are you claiming that you're superior because you don't eat meat? Are you claiming people that do eat meat are inferior? No.

you're making a statement of identity.

It says much that you'd try to strip your supposed rivals of even the right to have an identity. You're trying to take my face away. You're attempting to claim that I have no right to opinions, no right to a personality, no right to self determination.

And from this position you presume to be morality superior to me?

Your grasp of morality is so shallow it doesn't merit consideration. Your whole world view is a cardboard cut out joke.

You're really unable to parse simple logic aren't you?

You say I am unaware but my statement concerned things I had seen or experienced. Therefore, it was a statement of awareness.

Your comment would be more rational if you claimed I was hallucinating or something.

Regardless, your inability to grasp simple logical concepts does little to bolster your position.

Its as much about me as it is about you or that woman or anyone else.

You wish judge and change and those judgements and changes effect everyone.

Limit your silly little comments to something that cannot effect me and you'll find I care little for it.

Touch upon me and I have as much right to involve myself as anyone including little fools like you.

No you're not attempting to sound intelligent. You're attempting to sound righteous. The effort is undermined by your depressing ignorance and provincial grasp of philosophy.

^^ See that? That is someone attempting to sound intelligent.

Whether I am or not is something only intelligent people could judge. But that is not what you're trying to do. You're trying to sound morally superior. Not intelligent. And your first mistake there is assuming your morality means anything in the first place. Its just an opinion, little one. Small and irrelevant in the face of time. Your notions of good and evil are little more then talking points in an evolving system.

What you see as moral will be seen by generations to come as immoral or ignorant. Just like every generation before.

Think about how your grand parents or their grand parents saw the world and compare it to your own. Do you think you're more intelligent then any of them?

If you lived long enough you'd grow to see everything you value thrown away as garbage. Once you grasp that, you look instead for the eternal truths. The philosophy beyond the transient. And in that context your sad fascination with these PC tropes are as nothing.

You're apparently utterly ignorant as to what sexism means.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S...

""Sexism or gender discrimination is prejudice or discrimination based on a person's sex or gender.""

How does saying I have balls mean I am a sexist?

Would it be sexist for a women to say she has a vagina?

Are you even aware of how idiotic you're sounding here?

Log off the internet. There are more then enough halfwits on the internet without you adding to this carnival of ignorance and stupidity.

Define what conservative means to you? Can you even articulate you position? Or is your mind so disorganized and ill considered that you don't even know your own mind?

I'm neither a conservative nor a troll.

Conservative is merely what your faction calls its enemies.

Think about it if you can. Think of all your enemies. They're all "conservatives" aren't they? Does that seem rational to you? Or can you just begin to pierce the vale of propaganda.

I am not your enemy you stupid little child. I am merely awake and aware. I hope one day you too open your eyes... though I'm not holding my breath.

I've lived in Los Angeles, NYC, Chicago, Dallas, and Seattle.

I can tell you that people deal with morons screaming at them on and off again.

Most of them are harmless emotional outbursts. Some of them are crazy people. Some of them are bullies that like to see other people flinch.

You take it case by case and respond as you see appropriate. But claiming no one is cused out is frankly idiotic. Everyone lives in such societies. Its just human.

What is the murder rate of your city? what is the rape rate? What is the assault rate?

Do you have a verbal abuse rate? Of course not. Its beneath notice. Much like this topic, no one gives a shit.

I'm not a snake. I am a man. Though I begin to question what you are?... Are you some sad little chat bot masquerading as a person?

Karmashock Re:Pft (957 comments)

Another stupid strawman.

She didn't say "people should be nicer to people". She said that women are discriminated against.

I pointed out that in the contexts she cited that was not the case. That in fact, men suffer the same treatment all the time therefore there is no sexual discrimination since the abuse is generally equal between the genders.

Now you sit here saying I'm arguing against people being nice to each other.

You're an intellectual vacuum. A perfect absence of thought or reason.

I'm not a conservative.

That's just what your political faction calls its enemies. Its your own version of "heretic"... and really the fact that you don't realize it renders your petty judgements of my opinions or positions in these issues laughable.

You're a callow puppet. Maybe some day you'll be more. But today... nothing more.

Cable Companies: We're Afraid Netflix Will Demand Payment From ISPs

Karmashock Re:So release your own video on demand... (199 comments)

I don't care how big they get because they can't form the same kind of monopoly.

Power to them. What makes the cable companies unacceptable is the non-competition agreements.

Karmashock So release your own video on demand... (199 comments)

you've had all the advantages to do it for years... any of the major cable companies has a huge advantage if they wanted to release a video on demand service.

but you're so determined to suck off the TV model that you've crippled yourself.

And now you're paying the price.

Lawrence Krauss: Congress Is Trying To Defund Scientists At Energy Department

Karmashock Re:Price of using scientists as political pawns (289 comments)

... apparently math is really hard for some people. What portion of the total company revenue/profits do you think is spent on such things?

Its a tiny fraction of most companies. Even the most lavishly paid CEOs rarely make more then 1 percent of revenue.

And bribes to politicians are embarrassingly cheap. You can buy most congressman for about 10 thousand to 40 thousand dollars. Senators can be bought for about 40 thousand to 500 thousand if its a majority leader.

The expected return for lobbying is generally about 100 to 1. That is, if a company donates 50,000 to a political campaign they expect that to net them a minimum of 50 million dollars either in tax savings, government contracts, regulation changes, etc.

So no. Companies are not going broke buying whores and private jets for their elites. Some might be but that's usual. What's eating them alive is the bottom line.

And your fucking around with the regulatory and tax environment is the problem.

Full stop. Why is manufacturing thriving in southern states and dying in northern states?

Only difference is the regulatory environment. You're wrong and if you were introspective enough and honest enough you'd admit it.

Lawrence Krauss: Congress Is Trying To Defund Scientists At Energy Department

Karmashock Re:Price of using scientists as political pawns (289 comments)

That's fine. Your tax and spend system is going to collapse eventually. And when it does the political model you've created on providing subsidies in exchange for political support will also collapse.

Its too bad you'll destroy the country in the process but you're a cancer for which there is apparently no cure.

The founders didn't account for you sadly.

When the US was founded, the founders tried to learn from the mistakes of past civilizations. From the romans, the greeks, the english, etc.

Their studies were not sufficient apparently because this is in part what brought the old roman empire down.

We might persist in this fashion for another 400 years. But we're unlikely to last much beyond that. You're addicted to deficit spending. And you've made it impossible to cut entitlements. Anyone tries and you label them as something horrible.

Fine... we'll just keep increasing spending at a higher rate then the US economy is growing. What could possibly go wrong.

The idea with cutting revenue is to force YOU to cut spending. You refuse to compromise on the issue. You just play games and lie.

If you play your game as well as you have so far you'll kill the country. Congratulations.

The only hope for this country at this point is that you either wise up... I won't hold my breath there... or you make some tactical error that causes you to suffer strategic losses.

Either way... its not looking good for America. It sad. Its a great country but you've infected us with a fatal disease. Here's hoping the civilizations that learn from us learn the lesson well.

Karmashock Re:Price of using scientists as political pawns (289 comments)

That's fine... its a free country and I won't tell you what to believe.

And for what its worth to you, I'm against the excesses of the TSA, NSA, etc. I'm with Snowden and etc. Again for what that's worth to you.

But at the same time, I take it as naive to think the libertarians are ever going to get anywhere.

They're not vicious enough to hold on to power. They're not willing to inflict pain. To drive their enemies before them and hear the lamentations of their women.

It is the naive conceit of libertarians to think they can do everything through some utopian political policy where everyone respects everyone.

They never will. And that belief is an expression of a fundamental misunderstanding of what respect is in the first place.

Most people only respect people to the extent they can hurt you. That sounds cynical but its just realism. If you want rights you have to make it clear to those that would take them that you can hurt them or better yet destroy them. And in that... you have respect.

What is mine is mine because if you try to take it... I will hurt you. And that is the only reason it is mine and the only reason I will ever keep anything.

Libertarians don't understand that on a basic level and until they do they'll never get anywhere.

The instant they have power... someone else will come along and take it from them. Candy from a baby. What are you going to do? You going to stop them? You and what army.

Libertarians need to brew a dark side. They need to make some deals with their own personal demons... short of that... they're going to be seen as cattle to be slaughtered at will.
