  1. As far as I'm concerned, Ryan's hit the nail on the head. Cyberbullying isn't an issue, at least not currently. If the future of education goes mostly digital, then we might have issues with kids being assholes to each other on a platform that's mandatory for them to use, but I doubt it'd be a major one as long as identities are easily traceable and it keeps proper logs (so that if bullying does happen, it's immediately clear, unless the bully gains access to another student's ID or something like that.) As it stands today, cyberbullying is just an umbrella term for social media communication that the recipient finds unpleasant, inflammatory, offensive, hurtful, etc. The owners of the platform should be free to dictate what isn't allowed on the platform and are usually (99%) generous enough to provide users with a report and/or block function. I personally believe the solution to our current 'cyberbullying epidemic' is for people to grow thicker skin, but if not that, just filter out the stuff you don't want to see. Ez pz like ur mum.
  2. Lmao at Jimmy wanting to restrict the free market. I thought you were a capitalist.
  3. TheEternalSeeker. I play some Dota 2 and Quake III Arena every once in a blue moon.
  4. 7/10 alone, but when you count the fact that Summer was used as a MoonMan beat, it's easily 10/10.
  5. Same premise as the music expansion thread, except with political opinions. You rate the one above you on a scale from 1-10 (based on how much you agree) and explain why. You then post a political opinion of your own. I'll start: The world would be a better place if Israel or Oman expanded and took over the entire Middle East.
  6. (Specifically pinging those who live in the Middle East (hello @Saddam ) and those who don't, but know about the religion as a whole from experience (hello @Viiolai ) Other people are welcome to join the discussion too, if they're interested.) Islam gets a lot of bad rep and I'd say it's mostly justified, but often misguided. Strawmanning from both sides are so frequent and it sucks, because the discussion isn't going anywhere. No, not all Muslims are terrorists (far from it) but yes, the vast majority of religious terrorists in this day and age are Muslims (Sunni Muslims, specifically.) As I see it, the three main problems with Islam are taqiya, the need for a Caliphate and persecution of infidels. The two people tagged, please correct me if I'm wrong on these things, but I'd say Ibadi is actually a fantastic school of Islam, in that case. Regarding taqiya, the Ibadi version is the less exploitable kitman, which isn't a Qur'anic 'get out of jail free' card used when you need to lie or conceal things about the religion, but rather allows silence or lying by omission only. Uniquely Ibadi is also that a Caliphate isn't a necessity and that it's better to let each Islamic country govern itself, until a single leader deemed fit for the job is found. They also don't think it's necessary for such a Caliph to have descended from the tribe of Muhammad. Last but not least is how they treat non-Muslims. In this regard, Oman (the only Ibadi-majority country) is one of the best, perhaps even the best Islamic country. Sure, it's no Israel and there are definitely areas that need work (Christians for example, are tolerated but building a Church might give you a hard time.) Ibadi discussion in general, I guess? I'm quite intrigued by such a benign(-ish) take on a religion that I consider vile in a lot of ways.
  7. Do you think this is funny, Bry? Fight me IRL.
  8. Jimmy, I'd like to go a little off-topic for a moment and just express my gratitude towards what you're doing here. It's fantastic that you're so enthusiastic about the new feature and that you're using it to spark conversation. I'm very much looking forward to engaging in this new project and hearing what all the different kinds of people interested have to say on the matters Diversity is our strength!
  9. Man that's gay. 'sup.
  10. 1. What are your main reasons for using RR? It's a cozy little community and part of my habitual social media routine thing. 2. What would make you use RR more? Besides more activity? 3. Give 3 things that you think RR is great for. First: Rational discussion. There's a decent amount of viewpoint diversity among generally mature (excluding me) members, and the staff seem generally pro free speech, which means even controversial subjects can be discussed. Second: Out of forum interaction is huge. Third: Making friends. I'll go as far as saying it's one of few small communities, where I don't dislike any of the regulars. 4. Give 3 things about RR you'd like to see change. Besides more activity? Well, there's a kinda baptism by fire for new members, which might discourage people from joining in. I'm indifferent towards seeing it change, but if you want new people, we should probably give them a break. If you want it toned down, let me know. I know I'm one of the worst in that regard. 5. What would make you post more new topics? I'll post threads when I think about it. Ideas come and go.
  11. I'll say it here as well. Kill yourself.
  12. Oh ok Myvagmademedoit. What's crackalackin'?
  13. What was your name before that? Who are you, again?
  14. Not really. You shouldn't be expected to to care about someone if you don't. RIP Chester.
  15. 1v1 League match when?
  16. The important question needs to be asked. In the hypothetical scenario, where you are forced to choose between dropping a nuke that kills every person residing in either Denmark or Sweden, without the risk any consequences or collateral damage of any sort, which do you choose and why?
  17. Fill me in on the new Tekken when you do. I was a bit disappointed with 6, so I hope it's good this time. On topic, I've been too busy and poor to get anything new this year. Definitely keeping an eye on the responses and picking them up if anything mentioned goes on sale. From what I've seen though, the year has been pretty meh in regards to vidya - the only thing I can recall being stoked on is the new Assassin's Creed. 2018 will be great though. Ancestors, Sea of Thieves, The Last Night, among others.
  18. How do you not like Chainsmokers? I was almost 100% sure it'd be exactly your jam. 3rd place: The song that pretty much killed mainstream rap in Denmark, and turned it into a Frankenstein's Monster of generic dance/house. 2nd place: Big Room House in general, this one in particular. 1st place: SPEEEEEEEEEEEEEEED DAAAANZ! DAANZ AZ IF YURRRRR HANZ WER UUUHN FIYUUUUUUUURRRRRR
  19. I'm getting my sleep schedule back on track while getting a TBC mage geared up. So far, so good.
  20. Someone else take it. I have NO clever response to this.
  21. Continuing onwards: Man, are you attentionwhoring 16 year old girl kryptonite or what?
  22. You know, I've heard of people having sex with dolls. What I've never heard of, is someone being a parent to one.
  23. The problem I have with the MRM is the same problem I have with feminism. When the original issues have been dealt with, it'll end up as a movement desperately trying to stay relevant, either by shaming tactics, fabricated claims of inequality or even blatant distortion of reality. Egalitarian or bust.
  24. Sounds like quite the project - I'd love to hear you out or help in some capacity. The world needs an alternative - either one that goes the Ello route or one that's much more benevolent with their mined data (Discord comes to mind.)
  25. Ello is like a fusion of Tumblr and Facebook with a strict no datamining policy. Well, MySpace was blown out of the water by Facebook way back, so there may still be hope.
