#7068490 New Staff Member Election

Posted by W I R E D on 13 January 2018 - 07:42 PM

As was mentioned earlier, how does a fresh mod and a previous mod sound? If we do get fresh blood then please treat them well. I was warmly welcomed when I was a mod at it was great.

 

Yui and Cow are my recommendations thus far.

You were a good mod back in the day as far as I remember.

 

Also, straight up. I am downright sick of the Striker jokes and I wholeheartedly support Striker becoming a mod again. One of the most underrated mods on this site and the controversy surrounding his exit was completely overblown. When it comes to organizing clubs or events, no one is more detailed and in depth in their approach than Striker. He is a fine representation of this site and people's inability to stop whamming him over the head with that incident can be absolutely infuriating.

 

Decry my nomination all you want, but it's annoying how many people balk at the idea of Striker being a mod when other mods have done far worse and not bowed out as gracefully as he did.

 

In terms of old people I would support becoming a mod again:

 

Black

Striker

J-Max

 

In terms of new blood:

 

Hina

Degenerate shit like this is why I left this site




#7068097 The progression of technology. To be or Not to be?

Posted by W I R E D on 12 January 2018 - 02:25 PM

The rise of the internet has created a new wave of thought, speech, and customs within a new social construct. From Twitter, to Youtube, to Twitch, to 4chan, to the deep web; the internet has become an entire new form of existence, an intangible yet real existence. With the rise of technology, our way of existing is slowly changing. More and more the boundaries between the physical reality and the reality within the global web system begin to merge together. Some call this a reckoning, others a salvation. I pose the question to you.

 

Which direction do you think our society will eventually go into with the advents of new technology:

 

1. Machine to man - Characterized by machines elevating humans to new paradigms of existence. Examples can include cyborg technology. The fusion of modern machinery with the flesh of humans.

 

2. Man to machine - Characterized by man abandoning it's primordial existence on Earth, and creating a new metaphysical existence through the means of technology. Examples can include transhumanism through computers. Creating a new existence without physical barriers using modern technology as a home for the modern consciousness.

 

3. Fall of Man - Characterized by the extinction of the modern human, and the rise of the Machine population. Examples include, Robot dystopia theory, which envisions a future in which technology rebels against and destroys humanity, becoming the new harbingers of Earth.

 

4. Fall of Machine - Characterized by the extinction of modern technology and the return of humanity to pre-industrial revolution life. Examples include Y2K paranoia, involving the end of technology and the eventual regression into a new dark age.

 

If none of these, what do you believe will happen?

 

Also, do you feel our current reliance and bond with modern technology is a good thing, bad thing, or mixed bag?

#7010655 Man sues his date for texting during movie.

Posted by W I R E D on 22 May 2017 - 04:54 AM

She said she was texting a friend who needed her...

 

bruh there are things far more important than a date

Then you can easily answer the phone, outside of the theater. It's not hard.

 

If it was me who had to answer a call from a friend in need, in the middle of the movie, I would politely nudge my date and go "Sorry, but I need to take this I'll be back." I would then exit the theater room and call or continue texting said friend.

 

Also, phones should never be on in a movie. Period.

 

I also love everybody judging my potential love life because I have a differing opinion. This might come as a surprise, but a lot of people actually sympathize with the guy, and find this a good dose of fuck you to people who pull this shit.




#7010425 Man sues his date for texting during movie.

Posted by W I R E D on 21 May 2017 - 10:27 AM

They settled it out of court apparently.

 

She gave him his refund and hopefully learned some basic respect. 

Damn right.

 

Hate this opinion all you want, but if I pay for a girl I'm going out with to see a movie and she starts texting, Imma be fucking pissed. You don't do that shit. I won't sue like this guy did, but you can forget about a second date with me. I'll move on to chicks with respect.

#7005480 Winter's Ban

Posted by W I R E D on 30 April 2017 - 10:27 PM

I have refrained from talking about this issue for a multitude of reasons. For one, I consider myself a friend of Winter's and I felt I'd just be accused of bias. Secondly, I don't know exactly what me speaking about this issue would solve. However, I wish to tell you guys a story.

 

Back in 2010-2012 there was this user who was slightly well known. To be fair, he was known more in infamy then the other way around. He was an insecure, cocky, asshole who always acted in an aggressive manner towards other people. He didn't do this out of malice per say, he did it because his insecurities began to cloud his judgement. He continuously believed that every single user was out to get him, and that those who said they were his friend were just lying. He would react to political debates with an incredibly forceful attitude and get really angry when his character was called into question. His infamy became so bad that he became this meme around the site as people predicted his eventual ban, or made jokes about how they wanted him banned. To many of the users on the site, he was a joke; a toxic cancer that needed to be rid of. He skirted bans through the skin of his teeth, but eventually that history of recklessness would catch up to him and he was perma-banned for posting porn.

 

However, there were things many mods didn't know.

 

For one, the users attitude wasn't helped by the fact that he was continuously berated and insulted on the site. Any topic he tended to participate in resulted in him being mocked in some way/shape/form. Another thing that many didn't know, or didn't wish to acknowledge, was that one popular user was making it his sole objective to make our protagonist as miserable as possible. He would always instigate arguments, badger the main character into corners which forced our protagonist to get defensive. This user would stalk the protagonist's status updates, continuously finding reasons to insult or mock him. Of course, this user was popular, and he got away with bloody murder as his loyal friends defended him to the death, and even helped in adding to the abuse our protagonist suffered.

 

It was ironic that he was regarded as one of the worst users this site ever had, because the same people who said that, were the ones responsible for turning our protagonist into the very villain they disliked. A sick cycle that our protagonist could never get out of.

 

That protagonist was me.

 

Does this story sound familiar? Because it should be. Winter has been fighting this exact same battle for a long time, possibly even longer than I did. When I first returned to this site, Winter wasn't really as prolific a political poster as he was now. Then I started posting controversial topics, because I saw that this site had a massive Freedom of Speech issue that needed to be addressed. Once that issue resolved I quietly faded back into lurking, but Winter believed that more could be, and should be done. That is where the two of us disagreed. I knew straight up what was happening, the Winter ban memes, the personal attacks against him, his rise in aggression in response, him being the lone wolf in debates at varying points. It was history replaying itself in some twisted carnival, he was a reminder of myself and the shite I got put through. It's why I stopped posting for a long time, because I knew how Winter's story was going to end, and I couldn't handle that knowledge.

 

The real culprit in this isn't the mods, who simply did their job to the best of their ability, nor is it entirely Winter's fault. This was the fault of users who continuously badgered Winter into corners, insulted him in status updates, and made him feel like general shit in general.

 

Contrary to popular belief, treating a user like crap because he acts like crap isn't going to cause him to change, it's just going to turn him into the very thing these users state they hate. Because of this, every effort some of us made to help Winter was shot down. Every time we calmed him down, a user would rant off in a status update about Winter in some negative manner and the whole tower of Babel would come tumbling down. Every time we got two steps forward, some asshole user forced us to take two steps back. The sad reality is that these users, who caused similar problems to Winter, didn't get punished as much because they attacked a common enemy. They got away with bloody murder.

 

I know who each of you users are. I know what you did, and I also know that, for every time you claimed Winter was toxic, you would be toxic to him, reinforcing his behavior and making things worse for everyone else. I won't name any of you, because your time will come on this site. Now that Winter is banned, you no longer have a curtain to mask what you do from the mods, you can no longer get away with the same things you did towards Winter. Have fun, because your time on this site is limited as well.

 

That is all I have to say on this matter. I will not respond to any responses to me in this topic.




#7004272 YCM CyTube Channel

Posted by W I R E D on 25 April 2017 - 09:09 PM

CyTube is a collective channel creator that allows users to join and watch videos while commenting with others. It can play Youtube videos, Twitch streams, and many others.

 

The idea of making my own channel for YCM had been in the back of my mind for a long time, however I never actually got around to making it until now.

 

With this, users can join, chat with other YCMers, and post videos that we will all see together at the same time.

 

With this in mind, I also hope that I can have a movie night on the weekends where we can all gather, watch, and chat.

 

All Super Moderators of YCM who join will be given Admin privileges while all mods will be given mod privileges. So Night, Flame Dragon, Evilfusion, when you join, I will make you moderator.

 

You can sign in as a guest but I encourage you sign up to the site as it makes things easier in the long run.

 

Without further ado, here is the link: https://cytu.be/r/YCMWorld

 

The maximum video length you are allowed to post is 15 minutes.

Come on in and enjoy!




#7002001 Trump extends private-sector health care program for vets

Posted by W I R E D on 19 April 2017 - 09:09 PM

http://abcnews.go.co...m-vets-46887778

 

Beginning of article:

 

"President Donald Trump signed a bill Wednesday to temporarily extend a program that lets some veterans seek medical care in the private sector, part of an effort by the president to deliver on a campaign promise.

The extension will give Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin time to develop a more comprehensive plan to allow veterans to more easily go outside the VA health system for care. Under the bill Trump signed into law, the VA will be allowed to continue operating its Choice Program until the funding runs out, which is expected early next year. The program was scheduled to expire on Aug. 7 with nearly $1 billion left over."

 

Thank you Mr. president.
