Debate / Re: What do you find most annoying about Donald Trump?
« on: January 17, 2020, 22:03 »
Dude's so messed up there's too many reasons to hate him, but if we're talking annoying it's gotta be the fact that he's teetotal & painfully boring beneath the thick subcutaneous layers of bigotry. If he drank his drunk tweets would be so bizarrely incoherent they'd at least be worth a laugh, if he went on some crazy bender we could at least step back, enjoy the trainwreck and maybe, just maybe feel a little bit sorry for him.

He doesn't like dogs or any other animals, doesn't really come across as a family man, he doesn't have any real opinions on music. Doesn't really seem to show any interest in movies, books, TV, art or anything else. Besides playing it he doesn't really show like an interest in Golf or any other sport. He's clearly not a foodie because he literally just eats McDonalds every single day. He sometimes vaguely engages with the lowest common denominator pop culture. He has no interesting backstory, no actual thought-provoking opinions that aren't just regurgitated Fox News soundbites. What's the dude's deal? Does he just stare at the wall in his spare time?

Wow, you worded this far better than anyone possibly could have

I remember he was once described as not a person but a bunch of abhorrent qualities mixed together. Your post gave me an incredible way to visualize/imagine that.

Nice to see you post again, my guy.

For what it's worth, my location is like 8.5 years out of date.

The fact that the democrats are trying their hardest to make him look bad.

Del already covered it, though I'd like to add it's really annoying to see the mainstream media networks try to pile on top of him when he already does enough damage himself. They're treating him like he's some sort of Nazi when he's an unintelligent and greedy human being that holds the nation's most powerful office.

Like come on guys, he's really really stupid, and we should treat him like he's a person doing a bad job rather than some sort of Nazi.

EDIT: oh yeah approval ratings for trump are above 50% and are only going to get higher lolololololololololololololololol
This is false. His approval has been higher recently than it was when he took office, but according to 538 its basically hovering from 39-42% which is absolutely horrific. Link for posterity.

I generally don't trust any polls outside of 538's aggregation. For the record, 538 was the website that had Trump at a 30% chance of winning, and he lost the popular vote and outperformed in key swing states (based on some arguments they made prior to the election -- that if Florida flips, then some of the midwest states and PA may flip too, which is exactly what happened).

If you don't want to trust that because it didn't say 100% Trump, then I invite you to criticize the poll aggregate's methodology. Until then, your point is not substantial in the slightest. I predict it will tank a little bit next April, when our tax returns are roughly cut in half.

Happy Birthday Claire! It's kind of freaking crazy how long it's been since we all started man, and I'm glad you're still around. Hope to see you (and xhanatos) around on Discord.

You sound kind of naïve if you actually think that he meant the guy's mom was a furry. There's a blatant innuendo there.

I believe I asked you to PM me if there are issues. I also believe you ignored the entirety of my post if that is what you got out of it.

Please explain yourself, via PM. I am doing this for your good, not mine, because doing this in public will be very unproductive because people will openly participate and it won't be pretty really for either of us. I (and many, MANY others) genuinely have zero idea what that is innuendo for; I'm 99.999% sure he's literally calling his mother either a furry or ridiculously hairy. It's low hanging fruit, but there's absolutely nothing sexual about it. Anything sexual you take out of this one is pretty much on you; it's very unambiguous to everyone here.

And again, if you want to talk more about this, PM me or message me on Discord. That would be the easiest way to establish a dialogue. Calling me naive doesn't explain it to me in the slightest. Obviously, it's not obvious to others, so you have to *really* detail it.

If you throw an accusatory tone at me again instead of PMing me (or actually explaining yourself), I will warn you for spamming. As it stands, calling me naive is regressive towards your cause, because it shows me that your intention is to grandstand and not make a substantial point.

I understand your complaint, but the name rater has been snippy and willing to go beneath the belt since inception. In fact, the name rater is "punching someone in the crotch" personified, and that is something that he will not be able to change anytime soon. Especially since that is the reason the majority come here.

That is also not racist or sexist (at least in a discriminatory way.)  That is just low hanging fruit, and calling someone's mom a furry isn't...  Really that bad. I'm not sure if you've ever looked through the ratings through the history of the website, but there hasn't been that much better.

If there is racism in any way, you can check my internet history and you will see I am the first to jump on it. The name rater has actively had to report actually offensive nicknames with slurs and everything to administration.

It is a stylistic choice, and those kinds of jokes happen by design. There's nothing really blatantly sexual in the name raters ratings and if you can point to actual examples of racist, sexist, or sexual name rater ratings and PM them to me I am more than happy to look it over and discuss with him.

I have one question: how can I get a write in ballot to vote for you?
get ballot

write in "lets all go out for some frosty chocolate milkshakes"

then she becomes president

And yet, people refer to America or the USA as the United States of America, which is also a long name.
Yeah, it's referred to as "the US" more often than not

Well, I've been secretly in the process of making some hires. They could introduce themselves as early as tomorrow!

Please don't focus on drama.

Pages will not really be updated in the near future unless a user really wills it. As it stands, I don't know anyone who is willing or able enough to bring news. We pretty much need someone young and energetic that's willing to work with us (and more or less for us and for free, or I could shell out money but I'm not sure I make enough to do that) because I have very little ability to work behind the scenes with our website.

I also don't have the energy to do anything but post sometimes, but I am willing to work with people.

The other admins are older than I am so basically everything I go through but worse.

At this point, we need a niche because there are other websites people will use for information. There is absolutely no competing with that no matter how much we try. We need to seize upon quirkiness and more or less "alternative" content.

Some examples are well written fanon articles, cool conspiracies and articles about Pokemon, cool nitbits about the history of Pokemon, etc. Just fun little fan entered things would be pretty cool to put on the site. That's kind of what I've had planned but not really had some of the time or energy to fully execute. I've also generally only written about it a few times in passing.
