Why did they rename GBS 1.4 then put the same fucking rules. Did they just try to fake everyone out with some false hope? I must be completely misunderstanding something.

Keep in mind a lot of SJW consider tumblr an area of gross racism/bigotry/heteronormative villainy.

Someone let him know Abe needs to be the first to go. Then again maybe Abe realizes that and is the reason he's in panic mode.

Until Lowtax gets rid of Abe, I'm not taking him seriously on this.

The feminism thread reacts:

I think our days are numbered. So long, goonettes

Quote from: Earwicker" post="425367174
yeah the general goon idea of what "tumblr" is is pretty close to the reddit idea of the same, so that's probably not a good thing

Quote from: Koalas March" post="425370873
I agree. I also thought that one of the cool things was that people could police eachother but if this is a step towards the whole forums becoming FYAD, it sucks. But whatever, it's not like I can get a fucking refund.

Let's just hope it's not Mangosteens and foot fetishes from here on out.

I think its clear that a sizeable demographic of this forum wants a decent venue to discuss current events/issues without people calling folks niggers and cunts 'ironically'. I am assuming that as long people keep resubscribing it doesn't matter. This can just become another of the hundreds of sites in which white, male engineers can talk among themselves and fuck minority voices. (if they don't do and say the things we want them to do and say!) But we'll see happens within the next few weeks and if my assumption is true or not.

There is a fine line between "The internet makes you stupid" and "The internet makes us stupid too."

VV edit: touche.

I like how the feminism thread has turned engineers into these evil boogeymen and engineer is now basically synonymous with MRA/PUA to them. "i HATE engineers!!!!! sent from my iPhone"

That's not how Twitter works. You can't delete somebody else's tweets or remove them from a conversation thread.

BTW can mods edit users posts or is it only admins that can do that?

Hey Richard,

You should start by purging the open furries, diaper / baby fetishists, incest role players and shit fetishists.

SA used to make fun of this shit and now they flock there for a safe haven.

I want to point out that lowtax has ZERO recent posts on SA, not even those hidden mod forum ones.

In other words, there's no fucking plan.

It's not possible to fix the forums. You'd have to start with firing all mods/admins, but then good luck replacing them. The type of person who would actually agree to mod SA voluntarily is exactly the last type of person who should be given that job.

The forums aren't fixable because even the userbase is just a pile of broken goons.

This won't really help get SA back on track at all. People who want a community where you can fuck around and be a dick to others are already using 4chan or whatever; only a handful of losers will actually want to be a part of the OTHER, more elite 'edgy' forum that requires tenbux to post.

Well, SA seems to be influential in the Talking Over Video Games Community; maybe that crowd would find a less PC SA more appealing. So..... good luck attracting people who like to watch recordings of other people playing video games and talking over them, I guess?

If Richard is serious then Shmorky is talking him out of it. The best thing Rich could do is remove all the rules except no child porn, no spam, no death threats against :obammy: or political figures.

Lol at the feminists.  They want SA to completely fill the void in their life and don't want it to be used as a place for   :librage: WHITE MALE ENGINEERS :librage: to blow off some steam.
