Combating Recent, Ugly Incidents of Misogyny In Gamer Culture

Ozymandias_KoK Re:One bad apple spoils the barrel (1134 comments)

Arguing those people should get accounts on IMDB and other movie-related sites in order to be more broadly consistent in their rape and death threats in an intriguing idea, but I think not ultimately a good one.

MetaFilter Founder Says Vacation Firm Forged Court Docs To Scotch Review

Ozymandias_KoK Re:Screw the Streisand effect (116 comments)

It's odd how you were inspired to make a link for your Hood effect, but it's not to a website or article explaining what the Hood effect is. Neither does Google seem to find any good quick explanation of it. That was very helpful, thank you.

Why Phone Stores Should Stockpile Replacements

Ozymandias_KoK Re:No More Bennett (253 comments)

I don't think they're angry rants at all. They tend to be stupid, coddle me, "I don't understand" types of posts that are utterly pointless, but I've not ever seen them to be emotional per se.

Couchsurfing Hacked, Sends Airbnb Prank Spam

Ozymandias_KoK Re:"Couchsurfing.org volunteer"? (44 comments)

I don't think it's integrity Bennett Haselton doesn't have, it's brevity. Different ity.

Ebola Quarantine Center In Liberia Looted

No. We've only seen that (some!) southerners survive, because we are only shown the south. We have no information about anywhere else.

Ask Slashdot: Good Technology Conferences To Attend?

Ozymandias_KoK IT not your issue (131 comments)

You need training on how to communicate, because you provided precisely zero information on which to base a useful answer to your question.

Ask Slashdot: IT Personnel As Ostriches?

Ozymandias_KoK Re:Simple Answers to Simple Questions (246 comments)

You actually ask for user passwords? That's kind of a big no-no. Even worse as you mention you don't need it.

Amazon's eBook Math

Ozymandias_KoK Re:Disengenous (306 comments)

Totally agree with this. I don't even hardly ever game anymore, but $5 purchases sure make for an easy win if I'm at all interested, just in case. I still haven't played most of them, FWIW. At higher prices, I wouldn't have bought them, either.

Comcast Confessions

Ozymandias_KoK Re:Every single day (234 comments)

If it bleeds, it leads. You could get it passed around long enough to get talked about, at least, even if the vast majority of people never see the source material.

The Daily Harassment of Women In the Game Industry

Ozymandias_KoK Re:Occams Scalpel (962 comments)

Are you saying that the industry and gaming culture consider that acceptable behavior, or that a vocal minority of shitheads do? Extrapolating the behavior of the few and deciding the many think it's cool is of course, quite silly. Don't you think that suggesting the entire industry and all gamers have a problem is rather ad hom-y of you?

The Daily Harassment of Women In the Game Industry

Ozymandias_KoK Re:Pft (962 comments)

Do you think that because the average gamer is in the mid 30s that there are no vocal minority of immature, blubbering 12 year olds or those who act like them? Extremists and idiots always make more noise. And they either don't know or don't care (quite often both) if the majority doesn't share their opinions - if they did, we wouldn't be talking about them, would we? That's exactly WHY they do what they do.

French Blogger Fined For Negative Restaurant Review

Ozymandias_KoK Re:TripAdvisor (424 comments)

It's certainly not the highest quality, but it's understandable. Coherent content; hardly butchering a language. You should probably get out more. I used to work with a guy who could reasonably clearly articulate words that were obviously English language, however I could never extract what exactly he was trying to say with those words. Obviously, he was an extreme example, but merely being non-grammatical or not spelling well doesn't mean you can't communicate.

Dubai's Climate-Controlled Dome City Is a Dystopia Waiting To Happen

Ozymandias_KoK Re:Overreaction (265 comments)

They don't do that in any of the other malls in the UAE, so I don't know why you'd think they'd do it for this one.
