AT&T Proposes Net Neutrality Compromise

Squiddie Re:Really? (225 comments)

There shouldn't even be a compromise. Their whole argument is retarded. It's basically a "Just the tip" argument. These people want to destroy the web as it is and think that it's okay because "It's a compromise". Well, in this case, one side is totally irrational and self-serving. Why should we give in to any of their demands?

X-Class Solar Flare Coming Friday

Squiddie Re:spaceweather.com (145 comments)

I've never met a sysadmin that did have something to do most of the time. They'd probably just waste their free time doing something silly like playing tabletop games.

Combating Recent, Ugly Incidents of Misogyny In Gamer Culture

Squiddie Re:I predict (1134 comments)

Oh, please. If she liked video games she wouldn't actively lie and misrepresent video games and bitch and moan about every little thing, some of which are of her own invention. Take the Hitman video she did. She went on about how the game rewards you by killing the dancers at some club, when anyone who has played the game knows that you actually get punished for it, due to their deaths being unnecessary. She's a dishonest cunt, and you should stop trying to invent situations that we know don't exist. Her actions reflect that she does not like video games and she never has.

Combating Recent, Ugly Incidents of Misogyny In Gamer Culture

Squiddie Re:I predict (1134 comments)

You are so cute. You really believe the shit you spew, don't you? Anita Sarkeezian is a scumbag and a class A liar and manipulator. "Wahh you're a bad person." If holding people accountable for the shit they say and do is bad, then yes I'm as bad as they come. I'm not hurt by her videos, but I choose to call her out when she's being a cunt, and we know that she is a liar because she's not even a good liar. She deserves all the hate she gets. http://youtu.be/57tXyqPCOCM

Combating Recent, Ugly Incidents of Misogyny In Gamer Culture

Squiddie Re:I predict (1134 comments)

They are equally culpable, and they've been called out. The problem is that the media keeps focusing on her to make it seem like some fedora crusade, when in reality it's calling out all the gaming press and Quinn at the same time. Let's face it, gaming journalists have been in bed with devs and publishers for a long time, it just has gotten so out of hand that now we have journalists and devs literally in bed with each other. This would never fly in any other industry, so why do we let it occur here?

Squiddie Re:I predict (1134 comments)

Yes, death threats so serious that they contact the media instead of the cops. Let's face it, none of those are credible threats and to think that these losers are affected by them is silly. "Oh noes, whatever will I do, someone said they're going to rape me on the internet." Either they are being dishonest, or they are complete idiots.

I'm not a fan of video games.

B-but she never said that! She did. She doesn't like games, and she isn't a gamer. It must be nice to be such a deluded idiot.

The fact that she said she doesn't like games on video would be very conclusive evidence of that.

Combating Recent, Ugly Incidents of Misogyny In Gamer Culture

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

Over half of all gamers are female

Only if you count games like Candy Crush and Farmville. Let's face it, gaming consoles and expensive video cards are being sold to teenage boys, you know, the ones that actually buy big game titles. If women are such a big market, they'd be pandered to. Or maybe women can make their own games. They should. Obviously these misogynist devs hate money. It's right there for the taking.

Squiddie Re:I predict (1134 comments)

That's ridiculous, and you're a troll. The reason people hate Anita Sarkeezian is not because she is a woman, but because she purposefully misrepresents facts in games and posed as someone that enjoys games when there is video evidence of the contrary. She lied to the people that financed her videos and then did not even deliver, not to mention that it's such poorly made crap that a high school student could have done better. Zoe Quinn got backlash because she is a morally bankrupt scumbag that slept with other people in her industry and journalists that promoted her game. She also made up the Wizardchan incident and basically got a bunch of lonely virgins to take the heat for something they did not do. In both cases the hate they received is due to their actions and character, not because they are women. Oh, by the way check out that list of "developers" most of them aren't developers themselves and are only tangentially connected to those companies. These people are actively trying to ruin gaming as a hobby. They politicize everything and try to make an issue over the smallest things. They deserve all the hate they get.

Misogyny, Entitlement, and Nerds

Squiddie Re:Yeah, but.... (1198 comments)

He's a crazy person. When did we decide that whatever the shooter says needs to make sense? The man was clearly insane. Do I worry about the ramblings of a man blaming reptilian Illuminati for his rampage? Do we worry about a "culture of anti-reptileism"? No. We don't do that because the people that believe that shit are obviously insane. Comparing him to nerds/geeks or even MRAs is insane. None of those groups have voiced the shit he was voicing. Yeah, some guys feel left out, and they blame it on their looks or the modern culture. It's whatever, they should be allowed to complain. Everyone has that right. It doesn't mean that we suddenly start silencing people for complaining about deficiencies in their lives. Should we silence libertarians every time an anti-government loon blows up a building? No. We don't do that, as the bombers and mass shooters are obviously insane. Furthermore, how is this guy in any way a geek or a nerd? To me he seemed entirely too preoccupied with women and not enough with beowulf clusters. That's a whole other level of tragedy.

Major ISPs Threaten To Throttle Innovation and Slow Network Upgrades

Squiddie Lies (286 comments)

They weren't going to upgrade anything to begin with. Their strategy has so far been imposing limits and charging more. ISPs were never planning to innovate or upgrade.

Al Franken Says FCC Proposed Rules Are "The Opposite of Net Neutrality"

Squiddie Re: When Al Franken...hard core liberal (282 comments)

I agree. The whole competition thing is bullshit. I wanted to change providers, and I just now realized that there isn't a single competing carrier where I live. I'm stuck with what I have. How the fuck am I supposed to vote with my wallet this way? Not have internet?
