Yeah, I’m fine, just very busy these last few days. Thank you though. :)
Same. I think there are a lot of people who hate talking on the phone for various reasons. I order chinese from this one restaurant way more often than anywhere else, because they have an online order system. (Plus their food is decent and their delivery staff is really friendly and good at their jobs.)
That’s a good idea.
I completely agree with you. I spend a lot of time with people of the 40+ age group, and for the most part they’re incredibly progressive and I’m proud to call them my friends.
And then something about trans rights will come up, and they’ll start misgendering people left and right and saying “I just don’t understand”.…
This is perfection
RIGHT?! I’m just coming to you guys for validation about my hate for new redesigns from now on, I tried to tell my friend about how much I hate the blank space and the huge font and he said both are GOOD DESIGNS.
I can deal with the blank space I guess, but I’m zoomed out to 75% because I hate how big the font is.…
Right? I try really hard not to trash the devs or the technical people because I know they work really hard but... there’s so many glitches, I kind of wish they would prioritize those over new site designs.
Meatspace is a weird term for like, physical real life instead of shit that goes on on the internets.
Because the kinja people hate us.
(It’s actually because they redesigned the site again.)
Thanks for the info. :)
Like I said, just vague internet speculation that I had no clue about the validity of.
I am hypothetically okay with porn (in reality it’s often extremely problematic, especially mainstream porn), I just think it would suck for someone to do something they would regret to try to get money for college. I’m fine with it if the participant is comfortable with it. Like even if it’s actually an audition…
Literally every kind thing I hear about today is making me tear up a little, but this made me tear up a little. That’s so sweet and considerate of him.
I’m not positive at all about this and it’s total speculation, but based on some vague things I’ve heard about Gawker Media, I’m not actually sure they make enough profit to fund a big scholarship like this.
But if they do, that would be fucking awesome. And good PR! Which they need!
Your comment made me laugh a lot, ty <3
And that’s an accurate description of my commenting and speaking style a lot of the time. I don’t think before I speak/type so my thoughts change as I talk myself in and out of things and process shit.
I hope you’re wrong, but that does make sense. Any other scholarship fund would definitely ban it. :\
It’s not any different, it’s just... weird to me. Like porn companies are not usually super philanthropic, are they? I think it’s a good thing, don’t get me wrong. 25k is a LOT, and it will help whoever gets this quite a bit. It just seems odd, is all.
I’m not sure they’d get as much attention for that, though? And attention is part of PR, unfortunately.
The way I interpreted that is that although nudity is permitted, it’s not actually encouraged and won’t help you get this scholarship.
I’m interpreting it that way because they’re quoted as saying sex videos “will not be seriously considered”. I know nudity and sex videos definitely aren’t the same thing, but the way…
I STRONGLY dislike the new design and I am dreading it being rolled out for all of Kinja. I know it’s partly because I hate change, but I feel like it’s also just objectively ugly this time.
I’m trying to visit the places where they’ve already instituted it more often than usual though, so I can hopefully get used to…
Thank you so much for your advice and for being understanding, and for helping me see things in a different way without attacking me. :)
