    well in that case it's time we got down to the real shit like the number of lizard men in Congress and how they're affecting the Illuminati's role in the true beacon of hope for our society, Wikipedia's secret drone fleet that's spreading chemtrails full of fentanyl which THEY don't want you to know is actually a harmless byproduct of UFO flybys.

    Musk getting booed it's hilarious but I'm very curious about the mental gymnastics involved in being a Chapelle fan in 2022 but not liking Musk.

    Plenty of people are just straight unaware of the controversy around Chapelle or believe that it's mostly exaggerated and the shows are good besides some bits people are trying to be offended by.

    Bringing Musk out is an obvious signal that Chapelle is actually, clearly leaning into the culture war in a way people might not have believed to be true or been aware of.

    Chapelle mostly limits his shittiness to attacking trans people, which unfortunately is still broadly socially acceptable with many

    Chapelle has gone on the record as hating people quoting his old Chapelle Show skits back at him, especially the Rick James lines. So it’s an already tone-deaf thing to say on several levels, and the fans would likely not respond well to that. Especially since it’s played out in general.

    "i think it would be cool if the richest man in the world died" is not a threat, it is a cry of exasperation. as you said, it is impotent. it means nothing.

    some of us can't afford to go "blood libel on twitter? nazis? attacks on minorities from every angle in the real world? let me post pictures of my pets!" i get wanting a break or distraction from the horrors of the world, but after a point that just becomes choosing ignorance

    i would prefer not to suffer in silence and have people tell me to shut up because they want to post on the internet. in 4 months i will have been on these forums for 20 years, i've spent more time posting and talking to people on here than anything else i've done in my life, these forums have saved my life many times. the only way i know how to pay that forward is to try and stop the things that cause suffering. i'll fail and i'll die doing it, but hell, i will be doing something

    respectability will cage me no longer

    I noticed that I couldn’t see most of the channels when not logged recently (was connecting from a new machine)

    Great change overall. Like, yeah sure someone could still create an account just for the purpose of scraping the forums, but at that point you are looking at someone with a specific axe to grind, and we are too small fry in the grand scheme of the internet for most anyone to care. So, that solves about 99.999% of scraping issues. Awesome!

    Also, Elon isn't really funny. He hops on memes slower than a Slowpoke, and it always feels like your dad or some corporation trying to jump on trends that make you instantly cringe.

    For example, his 'My pronouns are...' is sooooo old, that even the right wing doesn't use that joke much anymore. And using 'woke' just sounds like he's using internet lingo because he heard the kids these days used it. Next he'll be saying 'Based' and 'Cringe', without understanding the underlying meaning.

    I’d say he uses woke lest because of that and more because the right has latched onto it now because “political correctness” as a term no longer holds any societal power

    So they just appropriated “woke” from AAVE (since it was catching on from Black Twitter and filtering into mainstream twitter from there) and slapped the term onto their old usage of Political Correctness

    the truly frustrating thing about the dr. fauci stuff is that he absolutely is a monster responsible for the deaths of millions, but that's all from his handling of the AIDS crisis and has nothing to do with whatever conservatives are mad about

    Fauci might have been hobbled by the Trump Administration, but his saying as such meant that when Biden took over, he was lauded as a hero for saying how things should have been done differently... while nothing different was being done by the Biden Administration!

    are you referring to the twitter whistleblower thread? It's a public document they are referencing, so I don't know what legitimacy they require. They're just taking parts of a huge document and highlighting them.

    Twitter didn't monitor employee computers at all, it was not uncommon for employees to install spyware on work devices
    Twitter does not have separate development, test, staging, and production environments. At least 5,000 employees had privileged access to production systems.
    In 2020, Twitter had security incidents serious enough they had to be reported to the federal government on an almost weekly basis. Meanwhile, Parag Agarwal was lying about how secure Twitter was.
    On 1/6, Mudge (the whistleblower) wanted to take action to prevent potential sabotage by a rogue employee. He learned it was not possible for Twitter to secure its production environment.
