We've heard you loud and clear - negative reputation is back. Remember that it's still against the rules to complain about being downvoted - if you think someone's mass-downvoting posts or otherwise abusing the reputation system, DM a mod and we will take care of it.
Continuing on from my post, I feel like I can’t call anyone out in that forum without someone losing their saying saying stuff like “iTs My OpInIoN rEeEeEeEeEeEeEe!1!!1!1!!”. I swear, people have waaay more arguments in this board than on PULL. It’s fucking ridiculous. The constantly negativity of it is really putting me off from it.
Also I got a warning almost a month ago on that forum for saying “b!itchy” because apparently “bypassing their swear filter” is a big issue 🙄 I mean, if someone looses their shit over seeing a curse word on screen then they probably aren’t old enough to be on the internet anyways.
I frequent a different forum often that isn’t about gossiping, but some of the people people on there are massive flakes tbh. Some of them really need to be called out. Too bad I can’t do it because it’s supposed to be a “wholesome” place 🙄
Imo I really don’t blame them. I kinda grew out of anime really quickly due to how awfully “edgy” and annoying a lot of the fans are. I know it’s not all of them but it was enough to make me just kinda stop watching anime altogether. Also there really is a lot of incels and “pedophiles” roaming around the fanbase making hentai or loli/shota a personality trait. Don’t get me started when it comes to LGBT topics because it can go from full on homophobia or straight up fetishization.
The same thing could literally be said about the gaming or “gamer” community
Ikrrrrrrrr, a lot of AP I know are kinda condescendingly shitty bootlickers. Some of them were basically defending College Board's decision to go online and the other massively shitty things they have done. My issues with College Board include: - College Board basically gave no shits to the students who said they do NOT have access to internet at home. - When people were voicing their complaints about how they couldn't submit their test answers on the online test, so CB made them have to retake the test in June. - When they gave everyone a half-assed test for $100 USD each test at full price. Didn't even bother giving some money back. This means that those who spent money on multiple tests were basically ripped off. - The fact that they call themselves non-profit when there's plenty of receipts flying around online proving that they aren't. Not to mention they're basically a monopoly on the US education system. One of the sources like this one source kinda explains it all. - They created an account on Reddit and Twitter with the user "Dinosauce313" and tried to trick people into cheating on the test but failed because everyone could see through the bullshit. || Here's another source containing a compilation of all their shit. - They collect info from students so they can sell them to advertising companies. || Btw they might be in a lawsuit for doing this College Board is lucky that I'm graduating this year, because there is no fucking way I'm supporting them after this fiasco. I'd rather take dual enrollment and take classes at a *real* college than give it to some companty that basically exploits teens into giving them money in hopes that they pass. Not only that, but some of the classes are half-assed so you have to spend more money on prep books or tutors to accommodate the class since the classes themselves aren't enough. If you are a student from a low-income household or can't afford any of that stuff, the chances of passing are lower, giving students from upper-income households to have a higher advantage. And don't even get me started on some allegations of how they're recording students on the online exams without their consent. Basically, they're recording minors. Idk if this is true or not but either way, I no longer want to support this batshit sketchy company.
Yeah, I try my best not to let the fanbase ruin the game for because I've already spent my money on it and there's no point in doing so. It's great if you have a small group of friends to play with, which what I have luckily. I feel like Raymond and Marshal are really just popular due to creepy gay fetishization, especially Raymond. I have him and he's cool and all but some people need to calm down. You can't search him him up on google without finding tons of pictures of him wearing a maid dress in a very sexualized manner. >->
Animal Crossing New Horizons becoming popular caused the community to become toxic. Nowadays you can't do your own thing without people losing their shit over time traveling or having popular villagers. Not to mention you can barely trade or do anything with the economy surrounding the game without running into people that treat the game as if it's some business like calm down.
Checking my Instagram while being in quarantine was a big ass mistake because now I’m getting FOMO while wanting to keep myself safe and not leaving my house. I had to mute one of my friends cuz she’s literally just traveling outside, taking pictures of aesthetics, and having the time of my life with my other friends. >•>
This going to be extremely unpopular but I’m tired of going on any twitter or instagram post about racism against against Asian in the US due to coronavirus and all the top comments in those posts are all about black people. It almost feels like “whataboutism” taking place and the moment people call them out on it, they start attacking us and calling us dogeaters.
Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s wrong that China is doing these things and it needs to be heard, but don’t go on some Asian news account addressing the racism that Asian Americans face and make it about yourself. It almost feels like we can’t even have some solidarity to ourself without something making it about themselves.
Briclyn Forest - She is an Animal Crossing youtuber but has done many horrible things. Twitter thread on her here Just to restate some things: - She is massively homophobic and would block people from her discord for mentioning anything about sexuality - She gets people to pay her around $200 just for her to tell you how to decorate your island on Animal Crossing
- Her website overall is a scam considering how much she charges for services - She would literally trap people on Tortimers Island by hacking the game and would keep them there unless they subscribed to her - The worst thing she’s probably done was that she killed a dog she was supposed to be looking after
- Apparently one of the websites she has is dedicated to doxing people?
Ya know, I could probably create a thread on her, I’m just not sure how many people would be interested though
I saw D’Angelo’s video on her and I was jaw dropping at the part where she basically attacks Selena Gomez about her problems. What really rubs me the wrong way is that she acts as if she knows these people personally and tries to demonize them, not to mention she seems to not understand how mental illnesses work at all.
Ikrrr there's people in my area traveling in large groups outside or not distancing themselves in the park near where I live. It's so weird aren't taking precaution when there's like 41 COVID-19 cases in my city. My mom thinks the reason why the cases went up and got worse was because of people leaving for spring break and partying because it used to only be a steady 2 cases for several weeks before it suddenly jumped up for the past couple of weeks.
You're right about NBC being left leaning and it doesn't explain whether the reports were just verbal or physical attacks, so I probably didn't pick the best source out there.
Also the reason why people flipped out when Trump called it the Chinese virus was because: 1) It seemed like he was still trying to push a political agenda against China like he had done in the past. China has done some pretty messed up things and could have actually prevented the COVID-19 from spreading rapidly like it has now, but many people think that now is not a good time to start attacking China for it and that Trump should be mainly focusing on trying to improve the healthcare system 2) Because Americans are mostly ignorant and that Trump's following is very impressionable, it is certain that Asian Americans will be blamed or dragged into it. Also, many people in America will assume every person they come across is Chinese from my own personal experiences. I hope this explains everything as I tried my best >_<
