its not even about rationality anymore people lack common sense
User avatar #46 to #44 - englman (02/24/2013) [-]
I completely agree. Part of the problem might be that the world is mixing peoples more and more. Cultures (with their specific "common sense") differ, so this automatically causes a problem. At least I imagine this might be a possible cause.

Honestly I'm unsure whether to be happy or sad about the torrent of downthumbs.

Either it means that people are not seeing the sarcasm and are saying that empathy is important, or they are seeing the sarcasm and disagreeing, in affect saying "you're right, empathy is worthless".

Hope it's the former.
#78 to #7 - thessalonaki (02/25/2013) [-]
Just because you empathize with a person doesn't mean you need to automatically stop when they bitch about being offended. 'Offended' is a word people usually use when they find a joke untasteful or rude, or you say something impolite. Sometimes it's impossible in this world to be candid because too many people bitch about being offended.   
I have empathize with people, that does not mean I agree with them, or even believe that their feelings are justified in anyway.

Saying you are "offended" is pointing out to people that you take insult to what they're saying, and they should stop pursuing that line of conversation. Yes, it may not be much at first, but constantly offending someone and then getting your teeth smashed in is your own fault, because they gave you warning that they are offended by your statements, but you chose to ignore them. And that is what happens when you dont care when someone gets offended by your statements.
User avatar #89 to #52 - heartlessrobot (02/25/2013) [-]
So, to end an argument that's you're losing all you have to do is tell them they're offending you? Yeah, that's the best way to look like a prick.

Ofc, you are right, but I think the main argument here was that "I'm offended" isn't an argument for anything. It's ok to say if you actually back it up with something, but it's still a non-argument:)
#36 to #16 - John Cena (02/24/2013) [-]
and any argument can be made without being offensive, so both sides are total ******** .

^ This.

Funnyjunk is filled with people who do not have education or experience to go with their opinions. If you have a different opinion then them they just hit red thumb, go in an alt account and red thumb you again; then they call you a faggot over and over.

1) yeah its peoples own faults when they are offended!!
2) westboro church deserves to die

User avatar #119 to #102 - reginleif (02/25/2013) [-]
I think most of that is just exaggeration, my fluttershy loving, Phanact worshiping. glorious friend.

Most funnyjunkers (that I know of) don't really wish death to anyone no matter how annoying or reprehensible their views might be.....sure they say they do, but they also say they are Navy Seals too, you kinda have to take them not so seriously sometimes.

At any rate I can only assume this was aimed toward people who are not only offended, but aim to act on their feelings to shut down the offending point, something again Funnyjunkers aren't prone to do.

I hope.

User avatar #149 to #131 - reginleif (02/25/2013) [-]
Oh even if I WANTED someone dead, it wouldn't be hypocritical....because I wouldn't act on it.

How many FunnyJunkers actually say....

"I'm going to kill the westboro church people when they come to Houston Texas".?

They don't , they express their dislike by saying that they wish someone hurts them or they simply "die".

They aren't censoring anyone because they aren't physically stopping people from protesting and they aren't even being intimidating in that their is no threat.
User avatar #150 to #149 - Lainge (02/25/2013) [-]
That's not the same thing as what you said in 119 at all.
User avatar #160 to #150 - reginleif (02/25/2013) [-]
I disagree, in 119 I said that most FJ'ers don't mean it when they say they wish death on someone.

In 149 I added another condition in which even if they REALLY wanted someone elses death, it STILL wouldn't count because of the reasons stated there.

#120 to #119 - John Cena (02/25/2013) [-]
haaaaaaaaahahahahahaha FJ shuts down any dissenting opinion with the rage of a thousand suns all the time
User avatar #121 to #120 - reginleif (02/25/2013) [-]
How through the thumb system? While I agree that "bad content" button and "abusive" ought to be separated, no one is physically stopping you from having an opinion.

If you really want to talk about how you're a brony or something, then you can always make a new account if ur temp banned, as far as I know there is no censorship policy, just unpopular opinions.
#125 to #121 - John Cena (02/25/2013) [-]
It only takes a few red thumbs before a comment is hidden, thus censoring the opinion. It gets accounts banned. It causes a bandwagon effect, we all know how much fj loves those. The second an opinion becomes unpopular people stop listening and do everything possible to degrade that person that they can. Hell, they go around spamming other peoples content, facebook and personal information, and other bs stuff just because people disagree.
User avatar #128 to #125 - reginleif (02/25/2013) [-]
Well you can't help human nature, censorship would be not allowing to see the censored material at all, because someone else has decided that it wouldn't be beneficial. Funnyjunkers and lurkers are ALLOWED to look at the content, and decide if or not the idea has any merit.

You don't have a right to thumbs amigo, although I will agree that they ought to disable hiding red thumbed content. But once again most FJ'ers don't do this to censor opinions in the way some left wing crusader or a right wing religious nut would, they thumb it down because they think the content sucks... the hiding of your content is just a given.

To who is that aimed for, FJ'ers or the ad min?

Because Ad min already could but doesn't really ask for anything except not posting **** in SFW. And no underage girls in **** .

If FJ'ers wanted to, they also could by joining up in many available movements....

Besides, there may be a degree of truth to what the WBC says. Take for example their belief that "God hates fags:" It seems reasonable that if their is a god that he may hate cigarettes!

What else could that slogan possibly mean??

Piers Morgan is a real piece of **** . He's a bully and he constantly stands on the graves of the children of Sandy Hook to push his political view "how dare you say I stand on their graves sir" "How dare you stand on their graves in the first place, Morgan"

im glad he got a taste of his own medicine when Alex Jones destroyed him
#106 to #104 - VaultTechy (02/25/2013) [-]
Hahahahha almost thought anon was serious. If anyone wants context, here ya go;

www.youtube.com/watch?v=gWQPZ-taYBs

Too long; didn't watch - A petition was made to have Piers Morgan deported because he said he doesn't like guns, then Alex Jones came on his show to discuss it. About twenty seconds in, Alex explodes and starts screaming about spy planes and media brainwash and something about suicide pills? It's really worth the watch, comedy gold.
#113 to #106 - antexic (02/25/2013) [-]
So in other words Alex Jones did exactly what Piers Morgan wanted him to do. That was the whole reason he was even invited to the show. Piers Morgan doesn't just say: "I don't like guns". He has exploited his position as a CNN news host to push his own personal agenda. The Americans want him deported because when the world turns on their T.V and sees Piers launching ad hominem attacks and not respecting other people's opinion on an American show, it reflects badly upon them. But ya, they both are kind of far out there.

I honestly don't really care what's going on, I don't live in America or Britain and it's just a funny video of a crazy guy yelling on TV to me. None of this affects me and honestly it doesn't even affect most British and American people...

the difference being that comments containing quotes and scenes from media is a very large portion of the total comments, because they are excellent for conveying meaning.

Posts containing quotes and scenes from media have no purpose other than thumbwhoring.
