Why Coding Is Not the New Literacy

Kielistic Re:Coding vs. literacy (86 comments)

Most people paying for programmers are looking for a fairly run-of-the-mill web-application. They don't want people messing with IO requests unless absolutely necessary. Problems like that were common at one time, but not anymore. For the most part they are now solved to a better standard than an average programmer could do anyway.

They'd likely be punished for rebuilding the engine or DIYing the brakes in the company car too.

Doxing Victim Zoe Quinn Launches Online "Anti-harassment Task Force"

Kielistic Re:Slashdot stance on #gamergate (684 comments)

And when the use contradicts the previous use and the books, people generally complain about it.

Let me help you with that: Sarcasm see also: Sardonicism. It isn't a complicated concept really.

Doxing Victim Zoe Quinn Launches Online "Anti-harassment Task Force"

Kielistic Re:Slashdot stance on #gamergate (684 comments)

"Social justice warrior" as a pejorative is insulting to those that fought for actual social justice.

No, self-absorbed idiots stroking their own egos by claiming to fight for social justice while doing nothing of the sort is insulting to those that fought for actual social justice. Again I must repeat: you do not get to leech off others' accomplishments. You are not them; you are not in their league.

You are a lying sack of shit that edits quotes to change reality to match your Nazi utopia. Keep on hating equality and lying about it.

Damn, you got me. When I said people don't like SJWs because they immediately use non-sequitur insults as soon as someone doesn't agree with them you completely proved me wrong by claiming I'm some horrible thing that had nothing to do with what we were talking about and you had no reason for saying. Your one rhetorical tactic is just too strong for me.

To clarify, I didn't change any quotes; I mocked you. You said you didn't claim anyone was bad. Then in the very next sentence said people were bad. Do you really think people won't catch on to what you are trying to do when you say people hate *insert good thing*? You may be an idiot but most of us remember the question "why do you hate freedom?" we got by questioning the American war in Afghanistan.

Doxing Victim Zoe Quinn Launches Online "Anti-harassment Task Force"

Kielistic Re:Slashdot stance on #gamergate (684 comments)

It didn't work before so you'll try again, huh? You've got one tactic and you'll flail away with it until everyone just gets bored and you feel vindicated. You don't get to just conflate two completely different things. You know exactly what people mean when they say "social justice warrior".

No one is "resetting" any term but you. You are well aware people are using it as a sardonic pejorative. Your response of "these people did things that some random person might have called social justice and therefore they are social justice warriors so you can't use social justice warrior as a pejorative" is humorously asinine. The abolitionists had nothing at all to do with the current culture of what people pejoratively label "social justice warrior". Stop trying to defend your vacuous moral preening using the accomplishments of others. And that is exactly what you are trying to do.

I never said anyone else is bad. That is purely a fabrication by those who hate equality, progress and politeness.

I'm not saying anyone is bad; I'm passive aggressively saying they are bad. That's what makes me morally superior!

No one hates equality you imbecile. I don't have to make you look bad. Your pathetically transparent attempts at grand-standing do that all on their own.

Let me spell it out for you. You are exactly what people mean when they use SJW as a pejorative. A pious fool that thinks they're profound. A person that immediately labels anyone that disagrees with them as some list of non-sequitur horrible things because you are too intellectually stunted by cognitive dissonance to actually handle a dissenting opinion. "Could I be wrong? No, that person just hates puppies and probably kittens too."

Doxing Victim Zoe Quinn Launches Online "Anti-harassment Task Force"

Kielistic Re:Slashdot stance on #gamergate (684 comments)

Not really at all, no. I was merely pointing out the term "social justice warrior" refers to sanctimonious blowhards more concerned about their own egos than than anything that could possibly be defined as "social justice". Which is why the term causes such a fuss in some folk that feel the need to reply to it with petty insults and empty regurgitated statements they think make them sound profound like "[challenging] their comfortable world view". Which is exactly how a sanctimonious blowhard would react when someone questioned their position.

Trust me pal- nothing you can say challenges my world view, comfortable or otherwise. You are completely vacuous. You fit nicely into my world view under the category of extremely insecure people that latch onto something arbitrary that they think projects their superiority to the world.

You are more than welcome to post your drivel here. Just don't expect everyone to pretend you aren't a fool. I am really unsure how you thought that post wouldn't make you look like an insecure infantile loudmouth. But I guess you sure showed me?

Doxing Victim Zoe Quinn Launches Online "Anti-harassment Task Force"

Kielistic Re:Slashdot stance on #gamergate (684 comments)

It was a miniscule event that would have meant nothing in a week if it were handled with even a "woups, sorry". The scandal was a small group of media friends decided to instead start promoting that a large chunk of their audience were misogynist, horrible, racist, homophobic, right wing, terrorist (you get the idea) to deflect blame from a complete nonevent that shouldn't have even mattered.

You can guarantee that very few people cared about some extra press some lame game got. What they did care was being called some pretty vile and untrue names.

Doxing Victim Zoe Quinn Launches Online "Anti-harassment Task Force"

Kielistic Re:Slashdot stance on #gamergate (684 comments)

It is incredibly disingenuous to claim ownership of people's actions in the past. They had nothing to do with you and you do not get to leech from their accomplishments.

It is that exact fallacious and dishonest nonsense that got SJW labelled as a pejorative. You are transparently trying to say "these people did good things and I say I do good things therefore we are the same and you are bad". You aren't nearly as clever as you think you are.

People loudly proclaiming they are doing things for the "greater good" or "social justice" rarely are. Every horrible asshole in the history of civilization claimed to be doing things because they were righteous.

Kielistic Re:Slashdot stance on #gamergate (684 comments)

It's a subcategory of keyboard warrior- which has always been a pejorative. People that lash out at pointless things in pointless arenas and think they're heroes. Nobody likes sanctimonious blowhards.

An Algorithm To Prevent Twitter Hashtag Degeneration

Kielistic Re:Twitter is like taking advice from 12yr old gir (162 comments)

You just described the primary reason why Twitter is popular. It really only allows vacuous shouting so it attracts people incapable of forming coherent ideas but still want to blurt out their opinions without having to worry about them being challenged by meaningful discussion.

It is also good for making fun of people. So it at least can be amusing watching the dynamics of these two incompatible groups of people interacting.

How Relevant is C in 2014?

Kielistic Re:C is very relevant in 2014, (641 comments)

Don't get me wrong- C is definitely the right tool for some jobs. I'm not about to give up my C compiler. I am merely lamenting this macho culture around it. "Real programmers use C" and the idea that if you don't use it it means you are a bad programmer.

Perhaps I am just extra critical of this because it was the prevailing attitude with the faculty and student body at the university I attended. Coupled with a fairly anti-math culture it produced less than stellar results as you might imagine.

Kielistic Re:C is very relevant in 2014, (641 comments)

This is why romanticizing C is not a good idea. It's a pain in the ass language that should only be used when it has to. Currently there a far too many C zealots that are trying to project to the world that they are experts but would be better described as Dunning-Kruger sufferers.

Microsoft Introduces .NET Core

Contrasted with Java which is a kitchen sink language also but has a whole in it to helpfully keep it from filling up with usefulness.

Twitter Should Use Random Sample Voting For Abuse Reports

Kielistic Re:could be easy (132 comments)

It's the rabid extreme right wing bigots, racists, elitists and misogynists who moan most about people trying to censor them when they read a comment critical of their ramblings.

The [string of ad hominems]s here are a larger group of people who are tired of being labeled [string of ad hominems] because they don't think you alone should be able to declare who deserves "mutual respect" and "tolerance" and who doesn't. Nor that you should be the arbiter of whose ramblings deserve criticisms (not your own of course!) Apparently you think a lot of things deserve to be insulted (not too respectful really) including being "right wing".

Never have I seen such a succinct example of why people get annoyed with what has now become known as "SJW". "I'm just a morally superlative person that believe in mutual respect and you're a dumb, horrible [string of insults] that does nothing but ramble." Brilliant.
