feedum_sneedson,

Literally a Trump-stamp, that’s incredible.

get off the internet for the love of god

feedum_sneedson,

He’s a Gick, and that’s the last I want to hear about it.

feedum_sneedson,

Okay, you’re rich and don’t get to have an opinion.

feedum_sneedson,

Even they got screwed by one supplier, it was very embarrassing for them.

feedum_sneedson,

Weird saying when you think about it that way.

feedum_sneedson,

Interestingly, and having done a bit of extra reading, the current Western position is that the killings didn’t actually happen in the square itself, but in the surrounding streets as the army was pushing through Beijing to reach Tiananmen Square. Some of the initial reports that came out were evidently erroneous. Again, that’s internal communications in the USA acknowledging that. But still very awful and hundreds of people killed according to that version of events.

feedum_sneedson,

I don’t claim a strong position. I suppose if I had to say, I believe the estimates of between 2-800 dead, mostly in the streets surrounding Tiananmen Square, with a dozen or so police lynchings amongst that number. But it would be weird for me to be overly attached to that as an opinion, as the evidence is unclear. I think Beijing hospital records suggest about 400, so that seems like a safe lower estimate.

feedum_sneedson,

Yes, it’s a reasonable minimum estimate. What is it that you’re disagreeing with? I’ve certainly seen all the pictures. But have a read about the declassified diplomatic cables, it’s interesting. Notably, the mountains of flesh being burned with flamethrowers probably didn’t happen. I have no stake in that, it’s the current position held by the US Government. What happened is still monstrous.

feedum_sneedson,

The initial exaggeration was probably unintentional, due to second-hand eyewitness testimony getting relayed as fact in the middle of the chaos. But it was later used to pretend nothing happened, which clearly isn’t the case. My girlfriend is Chinese and has no idea anything ever happened in Tiananmen Square: she didn’t even know that date was censored online, so whatever they’re doing is working very well.

feedum_sneedson,

He’s obviously a dick, but I feel his own name adequately expresses that at this stage.

feedum_sneedson,

Oh, so it hasn’t changed at all then, it’s a non-story. Should have realised. Incidentally you’re mistaken, I said I don’t ever use the scoring system but that redesigning the game was nevertheless stupid, because you can already choose not to use it.

feedum_sneedson,

That’s fine. I barely care about my own opinion on this.

feedum_sneedson,

You would if you could, and we both know it.

feedum_sneedson,

Me too man, turns out they are just shitty parents.

feedum_sneedson,

Sociology bullshit, don’t worry about it.
