CeruleanRuin,

Hooray, ten minutes of new Groot content incoming. (Seriously though, I’ll take it.)

CeruleanRuin,

“Law & order” has always been code for putting [whatever marginalized group you don’t like] in jail.

Is it me, or the hive mind mentality has come over here as well?

I’ve posted some controversial stuff, and I understand why I would be getting down voted for that. But I see some of my posts and comments are in the negatives for seemingly no reason at all? I don’t really care about the karma because I can’t see it anyway, but I’m worried that comments and posts here are gonna get...

CeruleanRuin,

A) There is no hive mind. That’s just you perceiving a bunch of people who happen to hold a similar opinion as a monolith, and that’s an illusion. You have no data whatsoever to support the idea that they’re thinking in concert or even have the same reasons for their reactions.

  1. Don’t take it so personally. They don’t know you, and they’re not attacking you by downvoting you. They’re simply expressing “I want to see less of this.”

d) Instead of having a kneejerk reaction when you get this kind of response and immediately being defensive, step back and use it as a reflective moment. Maybe you misjudged the room, misinterpreted the potential impact of what you posted, or are simply on a different track from those who downvoted. What can you learn from it? Do you need to change your own approach, or do you need to reevaluate your audience?

CeruleanRuin,

Give him some slack, he’s young. At least I assume so.

CeruleanRuin,

I spent over a decade on reddit, and I learned that whenever someone did stuff like that, it was because I had struck a chord. And they usually got bored of their harassment pretty quickly when I ignored them.

CeruleanRuin,

Yup.

CeruleanRuin,

Honestly it’s a problem with binary ranking systems across the board. Maybe if there were additional axes you could vote on, like “agree/disagree”, “quality/low effort”, “nuanced/trite”, etc. I don’t know how one would go about implementing such a thing, but until someone does, we’re stuck with having a simplistic system that doesn’t adequately reflect the complicated responses real people have to content.

CeruleanRuin,

Nothing wrong with that guy. Awareness is a good tool for everyone to have.

Pointing out what it is doesn’t necessarily carry judgment with it, it’s just facts, and you can use them however you like.

CeruleanRuin,

You’re not wrong, but think of the number of people this brought joy to.

Is it wasteful? Sure. Is it a bit of a face slap to people living paycheck to paycheck, assuming they’re even that well off? Sure. But is it a net negative? Who can say? Unlike most fuck-you-money splurges, this one probably at least lightened some people’s days for a moment, and that’s not nothing.

CeruleanRuin,

Named in honor of Biff Yeager, I presume. His mail-in campaign finally paid off.

CeruleanRuin,

Funny, I just thought “My dad would get a real kick out of these.”

CeruleanRuin,

Idunno about you, but I’m going to continue calling it twitter whenever I derisively refer to it or think of it at all. If only because it would make the manbaby angry/sad.

CeruleanRuin,

Part of me wonders if it’s an attempt to tank the SEO, so people can’t search for or news or easily talk about the site anymore - because it’s been nothing but bad.

CeruleanRuin, (edited )

The city should fine the fuck out of NBCUniversal for the full cost of replacing those trees. Those are not healthy trees.

CeruleanRuin,

Yes, movie trailers are ads. Film at eleven.

CeruleanRuin,

What the crap is a “consumer geeta roy”?

CeruleanRuin,

It’s hard to bait while you switch because you keep dropping the joycon.

CeruleanRuin,

I have five other people living in this house, and nobody ever wants to turn the damn TV off. The only silent reading time I get is right before bed, which puts me to sleep pretty quickly. So if I want to read, I need headphones in, and I try to find instrumental music that’s thematic to the book I’m reading.

CeruleanRuin,

I keep telling myself that someday I’ll be able to buy a computer that can actually handle any of these, and then I’ll have a library of games ready to go.

CeruleanRuin,

“Reconstruction” was a well-chosen name, because it was always intended to reconstruct the white power structures in place before the war.

The goal instead should have been deconstruction. Sherman should never have stopped.
