In my view, it’s a bit of a strawman.

The concern, speaking generally, is that without antagonism that Capsuleer relations would devolve to tea parties and pearl-clutching, cliquishness and drama.

To be fair, there’s a broad spectrum between this and that, and we usually operate somewhere between.

IGS gets so boring with the highbrow pseudo-intelectual butt-scratching that happens when you people aren’t rasping Miss Kim or Mister Nauplius for whatever reason, and sometimes just the fact they’re around is enough to trigger you snowflakes!

I don’t know who’s been calling you names, but I find it a bit ironic that you’re complaining about being insulted while calling others snowflakes.

It was just a usual suspect, who have deleted her replies already, Ms. Ambrye, and probably that was done on purpose, to goad Ms. Ruil for hostile reply and pretend in doing nothing for that. And yes, Ms. Ruil’s reply followed that. Aaand again - yes, if you hurt someone, you can expect them both complaining about it AND hurting you back. Especially if that was done with malice, unfairly and for no reason. I don’t say we should support lashing out and insults, quite counterwise. But also I believe that we should support Ms. Ruil in here, as she is clearly a target of certain malicious elements.

Does this ever end?

Welcome to IGS?


(Kalaratiri) #442

You’re so sweet


(Jev North) #443

In a word, no. I’m sorry.

I’ve been trying to keep the urge to snark down, myself, ever since I caught a glimpse in the mirror, but Winds know it’s been rough.


(Charles Cambridge Schmidt) #444

No. Very few people here are interested in solving problems. Many are interested in just flexing on a MFer with verbosity and grandiloquence and strawmen, terrible sarcasm, lacking satire, and whatever else they think is clever. When it’s not clever, mind you. Most every person here doesn’t care. They may say they do care, but their actions and words show that they don’t. You won’t find many apologizing for it, either.


(Tannia Ambrye) #445

I’m not sure about that, Ms. Kim. If Ms. Raske were trying to hide her posts to make Ms. Ruil seem unreasonable I think she wouldn’t have said the following, which only pointed out that she said or did something which she decided was unwise.

The point I was making that it’s weird to complain about being insulted, but then to accuse others of being thin skinned when it comes to them complaining about being insulted or criticized. If Ms. Ruil’s complaint is legitimate, that’s fine. She’d certainly have a right to complain. Just don’t call others a “snowflake” for doing, or having done, the same.


(Yarosara Ruil) #446

If anything, I’m always consistent in my own hypocrisy!

With that said, you’re a snowflake for being offended that I called others snowflakes for being easily offended by what others say, whether or not it was targeted directly at them!

If the hat fits, wear it!


(Tannia Ambrye) #447

Offended? No.
Find it weird? Yes.


(Che Biko) #448

How is snowflake an insult? Is it because they are flaky?


(Teinyhr) #449

I have a sneaking suspicion that this is because 1) the problem staying unsolved makes them money somehow 2) it spices up their otherwise boring lives. I can confess I personally indulge on the latter.


(Yarosara Ruil) #450

A cornflake then!


(Tannia Ambrye) #451

Something something special. Something something snowflake.

Right wing play book?


(Tannia Ambrye) #452

I’ve had those once, soaked in milk. They were soft, mushy and…deceptively delicious.


(Yarosara Ruil) #453

I know right?! I love when they come with desiccated strawberries. It’s the best way to start a day!


(Ria Nieyli) #455

You mean it’s not already?

Security status is basically meaningless. It is beyond trivial to avoid the penalties, and large amounts of conflict takes place without impacting it at all.

Equating “fun” to security status is like equating “success” to the size of your ****.


(Tannia Ambrye) #458

Which? Equate fun to security status, or success to genitalia size?
