Re: Today's random stupidity story...

Yes you clearly are missing quite a lot of stuff on this topic. You don't have a point. None of this is Diane Abbott's fault, and talking about racism openly is exactly the right thing to do. I'm amazed that you seem to be suggesting it's somehow her fault and that she should just put up and shut u...

Re: Today's random stupidity story...

So you'd rather imply you could unintentionally post racist abuse you don't agree with than concede I have a point? Interesting... :lol: I hope you've missed some context.

Re: Today's random stupidity story...

Nor is every bad thing done in fullly thought out maliciousness malice. Uh huh... so what percentage of your messages on here are not deliberate? How many times a week do you accidentally type the n-word or other equally inappropriate language? Would you feel ashamed and a moron if I read a selecti...

I think the XKCD comic Theadore kindly linked highlights my second point particularly well.
Does it also apply to the maker of XKCD comics? Yourself? :yeahright: The world isn't just filled with nice, well-meaning people who only do bad things because they weren't thinking.

Re: Today's random stupidity story...

I think there's a very valid point about how easy and in some ways, accepted it is to abuse people online. I thibk there are also people that may not fall into the bracket of someone who is likely to increase their patterns of abuse because it worked. There could well be people that actually feel a...

Re: Today's random stupidity story...

Yeah but that's not quite what's happening here; going on TV to highlight problens with racist remarks brings it out into the open and can ultimately umend up with measures being made to deal with it. Just like going on TV to encourage people to lock their cars and show what happens if you don't wo...

Re: Today's random stupidity story...

I'm not sure I agree with the sentiment that comes from saying the more she complains about receiving racist abuse the more she'll get; whilst pricks might pick up on that, it really isn't right. I'm 100% sure it's not what you mean, but the way you put it across there makes it seem like it's her o...

Re: Today's random stupidity story...

Diane Abbott goes into detail on the abuse she receives.... and some people get upset cause she said it on TV. :doh: http://www.independent.co.uk/voices/diane-abbott-n-word-pewdiepie-racism-a7946316.html Then some pompous nitwit writes some racist claptrap about it for the independent... :yeahright...

This has been true for three successive games now. Guys, I think I have magical powers. :hyper:

Mowbray out!
I was getting the impression that was getting serious thought from some fans after the first two games...
It's probably serious thought for some now...

Just got to match this form for the remaining 40 games now...
