Okay, couple of things here.

First, many of your responses to folks have been quite hostile, and often insulting. Now, maybe you don't think 'nimrod' isn't that terrible, or trying to say that you're not calling others stupid, just letting their actions show them as being stupid and pointing that out is more acceptable, or several other cases in here. It's really not, and having people call you out on it - in report form - is a way of not escalating the situation further within the thread. Calling them children for using the tools available isn't exactly nice.

Second, and much more minor, you're doing a lot of multi-posting. Try to edit your posts if you have additional thoughts, or you can use the checkbox next to several posts and use 'quote multiple' if you're trying to respond to several people at once.

To be honest, I'm on the fence about leaving this thread open at all, and if more reports come in or another mod handles them, you might see it closed even after my post.

You also point out that more people are responding to your posts, not the video you wanted them to watch and comment on. A fresh start might help you out in that regard.



Well, not to be tooooo snarky, but it's a good thing I actually read all of your reply to me, otherwise I wouldn't have seen you are a mod. Lol... Unlike some other people here...

Truth be told, I had a good long winded reply here.. it's probably better that I just say thanks for being cool and what not, and I am thankful... but I rather wish you hadn't said anything at all really. A PM would have been nice at least. because by doing so you essentially just validated all the people who, whether you like it or not, really shouldn't be validated right now... IHMO at least. They need to understand why they are wrong when it comes to Equity of outcome, PC culture and general hyper left wing ideologies. Hopefully you and the other mods not taking this down in general will have some of that effect, but alas it probably will not.

I say less here than I want to, because I am trying to not be insulting, truthful as what I would say would be. In essence you have directly censored my free speech by insisting I not be rude to the people who, so far, have been pretty rude to me to begin with by using sly and snide words as well.

I am just more open about it. Hence I get cracked down on. I fully expected it. why do you think I left messages to you mods in my edits? But again, I am not trying to be snide or anything here, it's just if you are taking the time to say something to me, I am going to do the proper thing, the respectful thing, and reply in a honest manner, regardless of its consequences. In the end, remember that the video is about quelling peoples freedom of speech. I'm sure you are well aware of that though, aren't you.

Sorry if replying to everyone is multi-posting. I think I totally did reply twice to one post though I think. Like you said, minor. Sorry about that.

I appreciate your honesty. I appreciate you are just trying to keep things civil. I've been there, done that. It's not fun when someone like me rocks the boat. I try to not do that... but this is one of those things where I think the ship needs to take a drink so to speak. So, sorry eh'.

As for starting over... Why? The peanut gallery served its purpose. Now, ideally, only the people who actually will watch the video or have seen multiple of them will reply, as they have started to.

I would rather enshrine each of the original commentators in a hall of "fame".

But that would probably be pushing it.... at least on these forums.

Thank you Makoto for being cool about this. I hope my reply to you is taken with the right amount of salt, and remember, I only intend for the best, even if I act like the worst at times. :P

Your post alone makes it sound like you are trying to sell us on something that you anticipate we will be suspicious of. Red flag.

You say the person in this video might seem stupid to some of us, but this guy says those people, the kind that think he is stupid, are the kind we should all be ignoring. That is a roundabout way of restating that this guy thinks the opposition to this argument is incorrect, duh. But thinking we shouldn't listen to people that might think he is stupid does not invite discourse, nor does it inspire anything but skepticism. If you have a strong position you aren't running around insulting the intelligence of the people that disagree with you. If your point is strong you should be able to make it without ad-hominens.

The first person to reply was met with your hostility and insults because you interpreted their one word response as sarcasm.

None of that makes me want to give this video a chance and it certainly doesn't say to me that you'd be interested in a discourse if I did.


Agreed
Also, my attention span for stuff like this is roughly 5 minutes ... maybe

I prefer the Saitama approach: explain it in 20 words or less
Or the Einstein approach: if you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough
