Re: Internet Comments

Pseudo-anonymity and not having to look a person in the face certainly enables a lot of this behaviour. I once read a book about online behaviour and I believe there's actually a name for this: online identity disassociation. We should all do a test. Who'd be willing to put a real picture of themse...

I am starting to think moda, Vinny and I are the only left leaning people on this forum anymore... ;)

Re: Internet Comments

I'm sure a lot of you read Zero Hedge, Fox News and other sites where comments are allowed. If you think these types of comments are only found on conservative sites, you aren't paying attention. The internet is a wasteland riddled with toxic comments from anonymous trolls of all types. Agreed, but...

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

We may be wearing Mask as new Normal if this goes on much longer. Things certainly seem to be moving quickly in that direction: The CDC is said to be considering asking people to cover their face in public — but would reserve masks for medical workers https://www.businessinsider.com/coronavirus-cdc...

Internet Comments

I'm sure a lot of you read Zero Hedge, Fox News and other sites where comments are allowed. Here's a sampling of the first few comments on a ZH article where Chris Cuomo was verified to have the virus. I ask you all, if you knew the identities of these people and were in a position to hire them -- w...

Re: Not the same type of TDS

What's up with the gold price lately?

Four reputable sites at the same time are showing $1610, $1629, $1636 and $1620

If he did that, then CNN, MSNBC, etc., would say "He has no response to that, which means he agrees with it. Impeach!"
Sure, but that's pretty boring, forgettable news vs. things like "Trump lashes out at the governor of Michigan."

Re: Trump as tragicomedy

• 60% approve of President Trump’s response; 93% of Republicans and 29% of Democrats agree. Imagine what that number would be if he were able to drop the need to hit back. Simply be able to say things like "I'm not going to respond to that." I think his approval would be 80%+ easy. GWB was at 90% a...

Re: Computer games - then & now

Younger plays Elder Scrolls and Minecraft. I used to love Ultima, Choplifter, Galaga (made my own Mame arcade machine a long time ago), Defender, Zork, SSI text-based games. Good Times. I can't get into any of the first person games anymore, did try Portal, not bad, but I would have never come out o...

Re: Trump as tragicomedy

I'm sorry that I set tech off here, not my primary intention. I'll go back and reiterate for the 50th time. I voted for Trump. I don't think Trump, from a policy standpoint, has done a bad job. But he's his own worst enemy. If the tirades and acrimony stopped with him, i.e. if he were able to let it...

Re: Trump as tragicomedy

That’s your choice, tech. I think we have a civilized discussion here. We obviously have a difference of opinion. This topic is Trump as tragicomedy.

Re: Trump as tragicomedy

I hope all you people with TDS are going to be able to come to your senses after he is re-elected in an epic landslide. He might even win 50 states. Until then I'm not interested in reading your juvenile comments about him, so you're all on my ignore list. Have a nice rest of the year until Novembe...
