TUESDAY AGAIN NO PROBLEM

raaawrbin:

I feel like very few, or at least not many of the people of tumblr are aware of what is going on in my home country Hong Kong right now.

You guys gave alot of coverage and support when Scotland was voting for its independance, so I’m hoping you’ll all support the people of Hong Kong as well.

Right now, many of us are in a mass demonstration of pro-democracy against China. But wait a sec, isn’t Hong Kong China? This is a big misconception amongst foreigners, but please, we are far from being similar to China at all.

A little history class: Hong Kong used to be colonized by the British, and before you white-knights begin going all “them damn white racist ppl taking over another asian country” please don’t. We are thankful Britain took us under its wing and instilled in us values that I feel made us what we are today; that is, a democratic people with respect for free speech, amongst many things.

On the other hand, China is communist, with government controlled media and news. Google, instagram, facebook and many tv shows are blocked in China. It really is just a few steps from North Korea imo.

So what’s the problem here? Britain unfortunately had to hand back Hong Kong to China, but one of the requirements is that Hong Kong be allowed to operate as ‘one country two systems’, meaning Hong Kong should be able to have its own democratic government. But China has broken its promise. A while back, China tried to put a mandatory ‘national education’ curriculum in all our primary schools. We all know what that is; a communist brainwashing regime. And now, they have announced that in 2017 Hong Kong will be able to vote for its president; BUT only from 3 candidates hand picked by its PRO-BEIJING legislation.

As you can see, China is trying to takeover completely and turn us into another communist state.

Of course, we have taken to the streets. In a mirror if the Tiananmen protests, students have also stepped up to fight for our rights and our future, albeit in a peaceful protest of course. But the police force who have always been a friend of the people, are now responding with force, something that had never been done before in Hong Kong.

First it was pepperspray, then teargas. Then, armed forces came in qith rubber bullets. They warn they will come out with live ammunition soon if we do not get off the streets but the people continue to sit tight, disrupting businesses China so strive to takeover and make use of. It’s been 2 days now, but the people plan to continue at least till 1st October or even beyond. The significance is that October 1st is China’s National day, not ours, Hong Kong has not been granted it’s own National day.

Please spread the news. This is a country we’re talking about. These are my people.

You can join this event to wear yellow in support of my people on October 1st.

You can also read a more detailed explanation of what’s going down here and watch a live feed here.

I think tumblr has left a lot of us emotionally stunted. This is a great community for empowerment, catharsis, or coping, but those things aren’t recovery in and of themselves. Comparatively, they’re easy when compared to the painful self-reflection and real-world…

Dude 4chan JUST tried to spread the rumor that Ebola is an american engineered virus being spread via aid camps on Nigerian messaging boards. Fuck your ” leave 4chan alone” nonsense.

Assuming what you’re saying is actually true, how much traction did the rumour get? How long did it take for people to realize what they were saying was full of shit? The pinnacle of 4chan’s manipulation efforts seem to be inflating voting polls and photoshopping Apple posters to get dumb kids to microwave their phones, so how are they managing a misinformation effort like this?

For that matter, who on 4chan committed to this? Which board organized it? Was it actually 4chan, or people just identifying as such? Do those people frequent any other websites which could implicate them as being a part of those communities, and if so why aren’t those communities also vilified?

I’m going to assume that people who have access to the internet in Nigeria aren’t they type who are so easily going to fall for some horseshit like this. I’d think they’ve have a little more information at their disposal and a little more intelligence to see through it.

I figure when their neighbours are dying to Ebola because they eat dead fruitbats off of the ground and they, themselves, have been vilifying and avoiding the aid workers as spreaders of the disease ever since they arrived, and doing those things infect them with disease even further, someone’s going to stop and think a little bit.

Altogether it seems pretty ineffectual, sort of like throwing a match onto an oil-rig fire.

The notion that anybody would spread that kind of misinformation is pretty atrocious though, and the person or persons behind such an effort are fucking abhorrent.

Hey hey! Sorry, I’ve had a busy few days. Let’s not get caught up in the specifics, then, since instances of 4chan fuckery won’t sway you. We’ll keep it general. You assert that the bad parts of 4chan are merely a vocal minority that takes relish in making incendiary comments for shock effect. The majority of the site is, as you would have it, a web community like any other and yhe bad parts are simply tolerated.

Going off of this, we could say that the majority of 4chan is not racist/sexist/homophobic/terrible. While I could argue to the contrary, I will cede that point, and agree. So then, given that they are not awful, it follows that they are offended by the comments of the ones that are. After all, by your own admission the comments are meant for shock value, which only makes sense if they are offensive to non awful people. So it only makes sense that 4chan mods begin punishing such behavior, as it is inherently offensive to the majority of users. So you still have not made a strong argument that the moderation of 4chan is a bad thing. Either the majority of users are not fuckheads, and the fuckheaded minority should be pruned, or they are, and overzealous moderation is fully justified and necessary to eliminate a truly heinous community of villains.

I don’t follow your argument. Why should 4chan be more heavily moderated? The very purpose of 4chan is that it’s a space free of heavy moderation - as long as you stay outside some VERY taboo areas (basically as long as it isn’t illegal, you can do it). I enjoy the atmosphere brought by lax moderation and so do many others. You don’t? Fine, don’t go there, but don’t try and ruin it for the rest of us.

I don’t approve of misinformation, but conspiracy theories are not a crime.

It wasnt a conspiracy theory. It was a lie made as a joke originally, and then they decided that taking it to actual Nigerian messaging boards would also be funny. Which illuminates exactly why 4chan needs to be moderated at least, but preferably nuked from orbit. Because a lack of moderation allows terrible, horrible opinions to be cultivated and then propagate. 4chan does not exist in a bubble, and speaking of it as if it does is disingenuous. 4chan is where gamergate started, before it spread to reddit and turned into a massive hate campaign. 4chan is an echo chamber where you can say something objectively terrible and 500 people will tell you you’re right. It isn’t about free speech, its about external validation of the worst aspects of human nature.

Gamergate? You mean the campaign that’s main purpose is to expose corruption in Video Game Journalism? What, you don’t think corruption should be exposed and fought against? Do you like your politicians stealing from the government as well? 

Conspiracy theories are never true and believe me, the Nigerians were the first on the “CIA made Ebola” bandwagon, I doubt they’re seeing something new. Especially the Nigerians that have an internet connection and the leisure time to spend it on forums. 

Again, just because you don’t like something doesn’t make it a bannable offense.

Ugh. You’re just a mess. Anyone who doesn’t have their head so far up their own ass that its up there twice knows that gamergate was started by Zoe Quinns ex and was basically a misogynistic hate machine. That’s not up for debate. You are wrong, completely and utterly. If you actually believe that any part of it was about journalistic integrity as opposed to Ms. Quinn’s vagina then you have been fooled into supporting a hate crime.

Next up, what exactly is your point? It’s not that bad that they were fearmongering in a disease and poverty stricken country because that country already has fear being mongered? Do you routinely shoot corpses at funerals and then act indignant because hey, they were already dead anyway? That wasn’t even a good attempt, it was an idiotic concession made to excuse the heinous behavior of a community that let’s you say “nigger”. Pathetic.

And you’re right, my disagreeing with something doesn’t make it a bannable offense. Because I don’t run the forum. But moot does, and he can ban anyone he fucking wants. Right now, he wants to ban shiteating fuckfaces. How sad for them. P.S. if your strongest argument is ” what I said was bad but not technically against the rules” then you have no argument. You’re not trying to further intelligent discourse, you’re trying to win a pissing contest and I hate to tell you this mate, but you’re the only one here with your dick in your hand.

ironic that they get so mad about social justice then turn around and essentially cry about not having a Safe Space

rest in piss

tl;dr is moot put new mods in charge who won’t put up with dogshit sexist/racist/gross opinions and now /b/ is crying because apparently it’s more important to make sexist remarks than to be decent human beings

REJOICE

You dumb fucking assholes didn’t even consider for a moment that 4chan was there to keep all of these people in one spot, to give them an echo chamber where they could be awful at eachother and laugh about it, did you? You didn’t think that there, in their own little dome, they’d be doing infinitely less harm, any harm in fact, than they would be if they were dispersed amongst other sites on the web.

What’s to stop them from flooding tumblr now, huh? If they get banned from 4chan, from their own environment, for talking about things that have been acceptable for them for the last decade, why should they stay there? They’re going to get banned anywhere else so there’s no reason not to bring that shit to everywhere else.

4chan was doing it’s own fucking thing for years and then some asshole decided to join up with a clique of lying, pro-censorship control-freaks with an agenda, and now it’s ruined. They were fine. They had their outlet and their community.

Like fucking, good on you, tumblr, you couldn’t handle a bunch of teenagers whispering ‘nigger’ at eachother and giggling about it over in their little corner so you decided that it’d be totally fine if their entire spot was evaporated.

4chan ‘dying’ is bad, for everyone, for you, for me, for the people who enjoyed 4chan and even for the people who hated 4chan, and if you think otherwise you’re incredibly fucking myopic.

You’d all be shitting your fucking pants if this exact same thing was happening to tumblr, you’d be throwing up with rage if you were getting banned for openly criticising a pack of charlatans and liars.

you and your racist friends arent as scary as you think you are. do you think 4chan is the only website on the internet that can ban its users for being, well, 4channers? all thats gonna happen is youre gonna find another dark hole on the internet to crawl into and continue being irrelevant. hope that helps (:

I’m not friends with any of them. I’m not even actually even a part of 4chan, or their communities, I don’t frequent the site so you got that wrong straight off the bat. They’re not scary, either, I never thought they were, they’re annoying, juvenile, offensive and more but they kept to themselves and most of it was done with a sense of humour, so, again, you got that wrong.

You also didn’t actually read what I said, either. I said that they may as well go pollute other websites because if they get banned for being 4channers on 4chan, they may as well go and be 4channers on literally any other website. They may as well do it on tumblr, too, considering it’s already a dark hole on the internet that continues to be completely irrelevant. Plus the banning process is excruciatingly slow from what I hear, what with all these literal Nazis and pedophiles running around.

Hey didn’t 4chan have a lot of that, too? It did, still does I imagine, but at least they weren’t the types who were so deathly afraid of words they felt the need to censor them out of other people’s text posts. Plus they actually banned the pedos.

Dude 4chan JUST tried to spread the rumor that Ebola is an american engineered virus being spread via aid camps on Nigerian messaging boards. Fuck your ” leave 4chan alone” nonsense.
