So looking at some recent articles, I think its about time we addressed the elephant in the room.

When an article puts forth a question/matter to discuss, people are supposed to discuss! This necessarily means that there will be multiple differing/contradictory views. When one sees a contrary view, and possess good reason to disagree, then one should simply state these reasons as a reply. To down-vote would only bury the contrary view, when it might actually be correct (though one may personally disagree with it). It can also cause frustration to the person being down-voted and discourage them from expressing their views (hence, stifling discussion!!). If a comment is completely irrelevant, then it will get ignored anyway since it will not foster discussion!

One should certainly up-vote a comment that one agrees with. This should not be seen as an indication that its likely correct (in the case of discussion articles), BUT as merely a means to bring it to the focus of others so that they can express their disagreements. So one may even up-vote a comment that one personally disagrees with, just so that by bringing it into focus, someone can then better articulate their opposition to it.

The way things operate right now, its just people stating their opinions, and finding the opinion supported by the majority, right? If the majority opinion is incorrect, there is simply no room for discussion since the contrary view will get down-voted to oblivion.

After all, if a person is just interested in finding the proposition/answer supported by the majority, then they can just hold a poll!

What are your thoughts? [hopefully we can put the above into practice for at least this article and refrain from any down-votes :)!]

So, instead of trying to handling the situation like an adult and talking to Darkko in private, you decide to jump the gun and waste our mods time?

You've already blocked him. That's it. What more do you need to do?

"this is all stupid af"
I agree. This could have been solved so much easily earlier

"I'm dumb"
I wouldn't say that about yourself. You make me sad when you say that.

"I don't care anymore"
Clearly it means something as you're still talking about it with me. I suggest you quit while you're ahead. Just some friendly advice.

(You know I'm trying to engage you with sincerely here. If you want to block me, go ahead. I won't stop you. It's more or less confirming my suspicion of you being not being an honest actor in this conversation)

eviljackspicer8 mese/i fa#70770193"I dont want to keep talking"
And yet here you are, talking to me and flagging Darkko's account
"You can write me off as a clown"
I'm not going to do that as I have yet to laugh at anything you have written (I mean so sincerely). I do think you are blowing this up needlessly out of proportion and I do think you need to take a breather.


Ok 1 more response. Alerted him earlier cuz I wanted mods to take care of this all instead of us drag this out and I didnt want to message him. Why would I want to after how trying to talk to him here went and how I interpretted things as antagonizing. Who wants to message someone they think is being antagonistic to them and expect good results? Mods are mediators. That's why I went to them. I am unable to close to report. Theres nothing else I can do. I blocked him after he sent a friend request just now as a joke. Im just trying to drop this. If I keep responding to you this will never end.

Edit: The alert was closed after I requested it to be closed.

eviljackspicer8 mese/i fa#70770178Thank you, that is all I was asking for.
Though from an outsider's perspective, I believe you are making more of out of this then the situation really is.


I didnt even know about this until someone quote-responded me in a comment. I dont want to keep talking about this I just wanted my name removed. Now I feel like ive been sucked into a looping trap.

Just write me off as a clown and leave me be. Im not gonna respond to anything more about this.

My final stance is this is all stupid af and im dumb and dont care anymore.

Thank you, that is all I was asking for.

Though from an outsider's perspective, I believe you are making more of out of this then the situation really is. Also, (from an outsider's perspective) when I'm reading the comments, it appears to be that you are inserting malicious intentions on Darkko's part when I couldn't see any.

eviljackspicer8 mese/i fa#70770174FixedCamera,

A. When I said "friends", I meant namely the people you are chatting with in the comments who are sticking up with you.
B. I ask for clarity, and you give me a summary and a "look for it myself"
You're not really making a case for yourself.


I literally told you what hapened wth. Did you not click the spoiler.

FixedCamera8 mese/i fa#70625315"Many" ppl went out of their way to praise you for that? Aiight.
I just think it's weird to bring up typically heated non figure related topics here when you can go ANYWHERE else for that. Are you gonna ask the site about abortion next? e.e
Does anyone here really want this niche focused site to just turn into twitter.


There is your context.

FixedCamera8 mese/i fa#70770169Yes please remove it. Leave me alone and Ill never talk to you again, talk about you, or comment on any future thing you post. Which was my plan before you pulled this.

Removed. I can also assure you that I wasn’t pulling anything. I really did think your suggestion (sincerely or otherwise) was brilliant!

FixedCamera8 mese/i fa#70770131Bold of you to assume I have friends here. Look at my friendlist. Most are inactive or havent commented on these.
If you want context, it's all in the comments in this article where me and him had a bit of a back and forth debate. If you want context it's up to you to look for it


Hey, I only included your name to give you credit. If you do not want that, I have no problem in removing your name. Let me know :)
