btw I’m not saying it’s a coincidence GT started a subreddit and then Reddit went down for emergency maintenance but I’m not saying it isn’t a coincidence either. #wakeupsheeple
I was going to make a bunch of jokes about that but I’m too fucking lazy to think of any. I’m writing a column for a local alt-weekly here in California (where we live now). And I freelance and I’m supposed to be writing a book too but shiny things on the Internet distract me and so I’m kind of behind on it lmao
Hey, why not! I’m BurtRose on Reddit but I don’t post anything ever; I wouldn’t mind joining a GT reddit forum. But I think you guys are going to be fine; I don’t think ZD plans to gut the sites and shut anything down (sorry trolls); the GM “Senior Week” stuff you’re seeing is mostly meant as a message that handing…
Hiiiiiiiiiiiiii. I logged in last night to show people the replies I get to my old articles (THEY’RE ALL AWESOME J/K IT’S A GARBAGE PILE). I think you’re right on this ZD point.
You are a good person. 10000000 points to your Hogwarts school.
As you should. This car should come with a nest of baby bald eagles to prove your love for America.
You are a hero.
YOU SHOULD BE BANNED. BYE. FORGET BANNING I HAVE MOVED ON TO CALLING FOR YOUR LIFE IMPRISONMENT.
I literally logged on, accidentally “liked” 4 of my own comments from 3 years ago, and almost instantaneously found myself sucked into a strangely vitriolic thread arguing about what the best color for fruit is. Hi Kinja, thanks for keeping my seat warm.
“You can’t hate a car that was signed by fucking Burt Reynolds!”
OH MY GOD! Thank you for sending me your link, Patrick. I am speechless. Near tears. Yes, a car signed by Mr. Burt Reynolds is nothing short of a work of art.
I LOVE YOU, DARLING. Kiss Alan for me.
Come on, don’t even worry about it! It’s fine, I just wanted to throw in that perspective. Here’s Mike’s whole story, which you should definitely read. http://uproxx.com/webculture/201…
Testing, testing, testing...1,2,3...what’s up! Hey, FYI. I know the dude you’re talking about and he wasn’t “trolled” he was the victim of a gross campaign of sexual harassment. He was bombarded with this shit for hours and while he managed to project grace and humor (because he is a great guy) he went through hell.…
Eisen Bolan, I wish everyone on the Internet wrote like you. No bullshit. Real feelings. Much love.
And look how quickly you made that personal! Awesome! That was impressive and quite telling. Thank you!
And I’d love to stick around and discuss this more but I think we’re being Kinja’d? Several replies to me that I did not delete have vanished. I can see them in my notifications but I can’t follow through to them on the thread. Very weird.
Also, isn’t it interesting how you and I both couldn’t stand to watch the video, yet we forced ourselves to read all those sickening comments? That speaks volumes right there.
“I DO have a right to opinion, and to negatively judge her public choices [to] commodify her trauma. “
Right. She’s essentially making all of us eat our own hypocrisy. And she didn’t have to do anything, except offer up the most extreme possible example of a rape victim bucking the Lifetime movie rape victim stereotype. I’m amazed by it. Look at all the “lol so she made a porno, obviously she’s a liar” reactions.…
