There IS a meltdown thread for these things
@Sinobas is JetBlack.
See how they are? They blame you for what they do. It's actually quite smarmy.
Sharing the code?
Guys, everyone take your pitchforks and go home. I've always tried to treat this place more as a community then just a forum so it's good that we have these conversations from time to time.
There are many 6 letter words he could've meant instead of the one with origins in the 16th century.
I however won't type those words as I'm remembering my grandmother slapping me into next Sunday for saying them in front of her as a child.
Judging someone for what could be in their mind is a slippery slope.
You do yeoman's work.
But in an ideal community, I would like to see racists own up to it and apologize.
I read the original post. I thought nothing of it and was really confused as to why it became a controversy. I personally would not assume #$@#$ meant the worst possible thing it could mean, and punish accordingly. I myself have used characters similar to #$@#$ as a generic swear. If #$@#$ is that bad, add it to the banned words list.
Racists have nothing to apologize for. And if they did apologize, you couldn't take it seriously because no one should apologize for their belief system.
They will never change. They will always be racist. It is their constitutional right.
It is however, our constitutional right to call them out. Just continue to do this. White people hate being called racist. So much they will blame you for their own racism.
Yeh, I guess you are right. And I agree people need to call them out. Just being aware of racism hopefully tempers it some. I am aware that I might have a streak of racism in myself; otherwise how did I realize so quickly what he was doing? Hopefully being self-aware keeps me from being an asshole.
Being aware of racism and calling it out doesn't make you racist. It makes you empathetic.
Guy has posted that stuff before, he knows what he meant. We got no place for that here.
Even if someone is racist, it is not reasonable to automatically assume that they are saying or thinking something racist every time they have an opportunity to do so.
Let’s test this theory out shall we....... I think you know how I think after all these years....... what am I thinking about your sister right now?
You can assume that I'm a species'ist and am always thinking bad things about you humans.
If you want to know why I tagged you ask dviss. He actually saw the post Sinobas made before it was edited. I don't even want to retype what Sinobas said.
Speaking of tagging somebody’s name on here. I never get notifications when I am like you do on twitter for example. I’ll just randomly see my name in read as I am reading a thread.
Am I doing something wrong or is their a setting for that?
Separate names with a comma.
