Quote
Police in India say they have arrested a man whose smelly socks caused a dispute between him and fellow passengers on a bus.
They told the BBC they had lodged a complaint against Prakash Kumar, 27, for "causing a public nuisance".

Not sure if I could even begin to guess how bad those socks smelled. Just for reference:

Quote
The CRPF, which conducted tests of sewage-smelling 'Stink bombs' from Israel says it will work on Indians due to 'higher threshold of tolerating stench'.

"We used it on a captive crowd consisting of CRPF personnel and general public. But they managed to tolerate the smell without much difficulty. Maybe Indians have a higher threshold of tolerating stench," Hindustan Times quoted a CRPF official who was part of the team which tested the bomb as saying.

One semi-shitlord having the guts to ask "what's your source?" is enough to metaphorically toss a hand grenade in the middle of the discussion. That's awesome. The only way it could've been better was if the WHITE MALE PRIVILEGE accusation was met with raucous laughter instead of indignation.

Not dead. Not Red. Dead Reds"

As big of a faggot as he sounds for being indignant, the tranny chief wouldn't have been suspended if he laughed it off. I kind of wonder if he played it up so he could file a complaint.

His complaint is gold too:

Quote
“I was racially and sexistly slurred by Captain Carri Weber while I was asking a question of the instructor in training,” the officer wrote in the complaint. “I am now firmly aware of the discriminatory belief she just verbally communicated. … There is no place in the Plainfield Police administration or supervision for someone who holds and espouses her discriminatory views.”

:reagan:  Bless this officer.

http://amp.washingtontimes.com/news/2017/dec/8/sarah-silverman-recalls-being-scared-shaken-when-b/

Quote
Comedian Sarah Silverman addressed the topic of American nationalism during a monologue on her Hulu talk show Thursday night, describing the “visceral reaction” and fear she felt when an old boyfriend of hers hoisted an American flag on his own property.

“I had a boyfriend many years ago, he was my first boyfriend who had his own house, and one day I went outside to see what he was doing, and he was hoisting an American flag up the flagpole in his front yard,” Ms. Silverman said. “And I instantly felt very weird. It didn’t make sense, but I felt … scared.”

“I had no idea why I was freaking out,” she said, so she called her sister, a rabbi in Israel, to try to understand her feelings better."


But I do often point out that I write both science fiction and fantasy. It’s just that the science fiction is usually titled ‘technical proposal’ and the fantasy is titled ‘budget proposal.’

Shamelessly stolen from Kiwifarms.  Bolding my own

Quote from: CatParty, post: 2848850, member: 25
https://motherboard.vice.com/en_us/article/a3jkd4/the-reddit-moderator-getting-a-phd-in-online-moderation

Much of the internet runs on volunteer labor performed by people who are often unnoticed, such as online community moderators. When these people are recognized, it’s usually because they’ve become a target of harassment, are involved in a flamewar, or are accused of abusing their power.

Moderators make message boards, Reddit, Facebook groups, email listservs, and many other online communities function, and yet not a whole lot of time has been spent by mainstream academics understanding good internet moderation, or the psyche of a moderator. Kat Lo, a PhD student at the University of California Irvine, is bridging that gap by researching online communities at a time when most major platforms are trying reckon with widespread harassment.


“Eight years ago I started moderating communities, especially the girlgamer subreddit,” Lo told me. “I was so interested in thinking about making policies that people can believe in and helping people enforce those policies in their own communities so it’s not a top-down decree.”

There is no unified theory of community management or moderation, but platforms are currently trying to balance keeping themselves open and as impartial as possible, while reckoning with various harassment campaigns, be they GamerGate, the alt-right, neo-Nazis, or more run-of-the-mill flamewars that have long been a part of internet culture.

What’s largely happened is that people who have traditionally been marginalized by society have been marginalized online, too.

On large online platforms, harassers “feel safe because they are safe,” Lo said. “There aren’t a lot of consequences. We talk about anonymity, but that’s a misdirection: Look at Facebook comments—there’s a lack of consequences and people aren’t buying into the norms of a community and are imposing their own thoughts on what’s possible.”

On a day-to-day basis, unpaid moderators are often those who end up having to deal with keeping toxicity out of an online community. Moderators are often tasked with deleting graphic images and videos, deflecting vitriol, enforcing rules, and ensuring their communities continue to function. Then, in the act of moderating, they’re often shamed by the community for censorship. It’s a thankless, difficult job.



“It’s a far more complex job than just banning people,” Lo said.

“A lot of moderators burn out. Well, we call it ‘burning out’—they’re fatigued, they’re demoralized, and they have an aversion to doing it,” she added. “But the things people are describing are symptoms of trauma. Moderators determine a lot of culture that happens on the internet and they do hold a lot of power, but simultaneously they hold a lot of trauma.”

Besides her research, Lo has begun doing volunteer crisis counseling for moderators, streamers, YouTubers, developers, and academics who have been harassed or have otherwise experienced online trauma.

“Almost everyone I’ve counseled has said ‘I didn’t know a person like you existed,’ or ‘I didn’t know anybody else could understand these problems,’” she said. “I am trying to empower people on an individual level and I’m hoping those people can use those skills to build their own communities. When you have these moments with people on a smaller scale, it makes doing this work feel sustainable.”

It’s not all bleak, of course. It’s important that academics are beginning to take these jobs seriously, and online platforms are beginning to hire community experts who can offer support for moderators and enact changes that can make entire platforms safer for everyone. Five years ago, it might have seemed crazy that a Reddit moderator would pursue a doctorate in, broadly speaking, Reddit moderation. Now, it seems absolutely imperative that more people do the same.

Lol if you pull up her CV/resume there isn't a single fucking line about having a paid, revenue producing private sector job, ever.

She must bring great shame to her high achieving, high earning Asian parents.
