If you're employed but not in education or training, you'd be a NET.
Nah I tend to take periodic courses on programs so I can understand them better or if there are any major changes between yearly installments.

If you work in an industry like vidya, you need to have policies like that, otherwise smarmy faggots will :smug: all day explaining how they can do what they want because there aren't rules that say they can't.

I hate this attitude. It's incredibly juvenile and edgelord-ish.

Jewish is another word that describes it as well.

Creator and head mod of the subreddit KotakuInAction (the gamergate sub) had a mental breakdown last night and tried to nuke it.  Its only notable because of how rambling and incoherent his goodbye message was.

Quote
Beginnings

I created KIA thinking no one would join, and when I awoke, I had many hundreds of orange-reds. "Wow, WTF did I say or do that caused this?" KiA began. I'm surprised and excited that we had over 100 users. So I began. So 'it' began. I created a few rudimentary rules and began enforcing them. The next days added a couple hundred and then a few thousand. This was becoming a monster.

The Birth

I was moderating 24/7 and it was clear that I could not sustain these rules on my own. These rules were the site rules. Don't break them and you don't get banned. It's only fair. Free speech needs protection, even unwanted and hurtful speech. Hate speech was allowed, but I was having difficulty defining everything. Does saying 'nigger' 'cunt' as a noun, the same as using it as a verb. So I began seeking help from users that I believed had the subreddit's purpose and shared my own vision for it's future.

Moderation.

I'm not sure how, but it was a success. The next top mod was an A personality and highly knowledgeable of the subs content. Amazing. Everything was going as planned. Despite JR's infiltration and attempted creation of a scandal. TwasIWhoShotJR. We began a great chat IRC and then even began livestreams. Sometimes with 'famous' guests having insane meltdowns. That was drama. Going forward We worked on creating fundamental rules and attempting to wrestle with how to define what content was acceptable. We still can't get this perfect despite public outcry and threats.

The next steps

Everything was going as planned and as its creator and top moderator, I was able to give shape and vision to it's continued future. In doing so we over moderated. At least we thought we were. Bans up the wazoo and massive amounts of removed comments. In retrospect we were mostly unable to, as users found ways around the rules. We did get better.

Hate.

This was a dark time. We were wrestling with how to control hate speech. Not only what was said, but what people could link to. KiA became infested with racism and sexism .... and other ism's ( though many ism's are not real). GG forums were created on KiwiFarms and 8chan as a result. This was the best and worst thing. The monster was now a virus. We banned links to, and then mention of certain links and topics. Now we became the enemy.

A new phase

This is when I handed over supervisory control. I really wanted to close the sub. I was in the process of until I was superseded not to. I've been wanting to close every day since. I was just too scared of the backlash. How ironic is that? I've been trying to please everyone when I should be forcing my wants and visions for the subreddit to be executed.

I rolled over and played dead.

After this, nothing much matters. I was too weak. I let the other mods dictate. My own flaws and faults compromised my ability to raise my iron fist. This was a monumental failure. I'm ASD and GAD. Many of you know this. Many of you don't believe this.

I have allowed myself confidence and an ability to assert myself. I've been captive my entire life and now I have the ability to make my own decisions and to correct my mistakes. KiA is a huge one. I think about this daily and dream about it. It's a boogeyman. The monster under my bed in my head.

Until now. KiA is one of the many cancerous growths that have infiltrated reddit. The internet. The world. I did this. Now I am undoing it. This abomination should have always been aborted.

So in this moment with years of contemplation, I am Stopping it. I'm closing shop and I can't allow anyone to exploit my handicap. I've watched and read every day. Every single day. The mods are good at what they do, but they are moderating over a sub that should not exist. The users have created content that should not be. Topics that do not require debate. And often times molded by outside forces.

We are better than this. I should have been better than this. Just look at the comment history of any users history. The hate is spread by very few, but very often. Overwhelmingly so.

Reddit and it's Admins are Me. They are the stewards of hate and divisiveness and they let it go. They go so far as to even claim there is nothing they can do about it. Those with upvotes could have been stopped by others with equally powerful downvotes. Fallacy. 100 evil people with 100,000 upvotes can not be defeated by 100,000 with 100 downvotes.

Don't let Reddit pretend otherwise. They know what goes on here. They know everything. So either they choose to allow it, or $$$$ makes them. Corporate needs #'s. Bigger the number, the better. This is Un-American and everything wrong with what is now the inevitable result of true capitalism. 10000 people living in destitution can never effectively stand up to the .1% who control everything. Incorporation, Copyright's, monopolie a result. We are a Democratic Republic and the winners created institutions where the losers keep losing. Small business need to thrive if we are to be a healthy nation. Incorporation's will always lead to monopolies. There is no other outcome. They paid their way... invested.... into feigning the populace that they are doing what is in their best interest.

I may be ASD, but I'm no longer a victim. Shout out to /r/The_Donald/ . Compared to you, I'm a Mini-Me. I'm scratching an itch, yet you are a viral cancer that is destroying the minds of millions of Reddit users each day; And they allow it. They, in fact, have to. Conflict breeds users and drives viewer counts, driving advertisers and required profits. After all, who would invest in a company that loses money? Reddit is only a small problem, but I'll end it here. Those with power use it to create a stronger hold on that power. Human nature to be #1.

At least Reddit is sooo overly tolerant that they could never remove this post.

https://www.indivisible.org/ Thanks to (ironcally) Google. This looks like and sounds like a rant. It's not. It's a warning. Free the free press. The 1st amendment demands it. KotakuinAction has beed a wildly successful failure in this endevour of The 1st. Thanks /r/The_donald . You've shown me the darkness. I'm hoping to pave your way to the light.

Poor normie faggot was fed red pills for years and it still wasn't enough to break the conditioning. Oh no, not the hatred! We're better than this! Where is the decorum, I ask you. What a fucking cuck. Sad.

If you go around on Reddit looking at what are supposed to be (for Reddit) "far right" style subs, or at least ones that clearly attract far right people, there's almost always a big sidebar rule or a stickied modpost with some variation on REEEEE THIS IS A NO-HATE SUB NAZI ALT-RIGHT KKK INCELS FUCK OFF REEEEE. Or you even get to see the aftermath of some kind of purge, with a stickied ALL NAZI ACCOUNTS ARE BANNED WE DON'T WANT YOU HERE modpost. Those kind of people are like patients with incurable cancer in a way - they've recieved treatment and responded to it, but they're still fucked. Kind of like the people who end up going "the anti-SJWs are just as bad as the SJWs!" while in the background Antifa are swinging pipes and no-platforming harmless dudes like Ben Shapiro and smashing dudes in the face with bike locks.
Quote from: George Lincoln Rockwell
The Conservatives have a slogan which I think is despicable and defeatist: "It's better to be dead than red." And the Commies and Liberals have a slogan which is even worse, it's treason, they say: "It's better to be red than dead." We say this: "You don't have to be Red and you don't have to be Dead. Not dead. Not Red. Dead Reds"

Kotaku in Action always tried to find some weird balance of being anti extreme SJW but also be left wing. So this meltdown is only natural.

There's an anti-Trump sub called "Enough Trump Spam" that has been copied multiple times; there's one called "Enough Commie Spam" that's pretty much what you're talking about.  It looks right-wing at first, and pretty quickly you find socialists whining about tankies and shit. They're even one of the subs I was referring to when I mentioned purges of right-leaning posters.

You get banned if you post videos of antifa faggots surrounding black cops and calling them niggers.

Despite being dressed like antifa and having lifelong social media accounts linked to antifa they're apparently false flaggers looking to damage the antifa brand and hur tthe good name of a group founded by communists.

The cuckout posted above only shows that GamerGate was doomed from the start for how infested with Lefties/Cuckservative/Lolbertarians it was.

has mental breakdown and is delusional because they feel allowing people to congregate freely has somehow unleashed a horror upon the whole world all because they joined a message board and shared similar opinions.

Yes but enough about Lowtax.
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.’

Speaking of Lowtax, the KiA mods posted a screenshot of their stats to show the positive effect of the controversy. 




A gamergate subreddit has more active users and pageviews than the entirety of Something Awful.

There are a lot of /ourguys/ on KiA though.  I regularly see redpilled comments, posts, and even threads.  For all intents and purposes, KiA had become a far right subreddit over the past year.  This is why this dude had a meltdown, he couldn't handle the sheer volume of redpills posted daily.

Remember you're racist if you let only white couples procreate in Fallout Shelter while evicting/killing all the dark skinned tenants.

I got the Fallout 4 season pass on sale a few weeks ago and I'm gonna turn Vault 88 into a white enthostate.  I mean, they called it Vault 88 for a reason, right?

Which makes you wonder, how does a company as big as Bethesda slip that through, because you know they gotta have a team of people that do nothing but go through all their games and make sure nothing in there is offensive or could be construed as offensive.  Are they secret shitlords?
