#34 - unlimited texting where i live means you can send as many tex…  [+] (21 new replies) 05/11/2015 on Fired +2
User avatar #39 - OtisMcWonderful (05/11/2015) [-]
That's not what we're saying. The point is that there's a lot of people on this site that are too young to remember when you had to pay per text to send and receive. And naturally, they think I'm wrong, so they all bandwagon and thumb me down even though I'm very much in the right. Wonderful, isn't it?
User avatar #40 - minorian (05/11/2015) [-]
From your first comment, it sounds like you are just lecturing people on what a text costs to send, and not addressing the fact that it's the price per received text everyone is talking about. I think the point is that it sounds like you misunderstood the content.
User avatar #43 - OtisMcWonderful (05/11/2015) [-]
I fully understand what the content says, and my comment says nothing specifically about sending. It mentions texts in general
User avatar #44 - minorian (05/11/2015) [-]
Exactly. You just say texts in general, when it's obviously only the receiving texts that is in question.
User avatar #46 - OtisMcWonderful (05/11/2015) [-]
Because you had to pay for both sending and receiving. What difference does it make?
User avatar #48 - minorian (05/11/2015) [-]
I don't think people are thumbing you down, because they are pretentious scumbags that just think they are right. I think they are thumbing you down because they thought you misunderstood the question, since if you don't know that it costed money to receive texts back in the middle ages, that seems like a fair assumption to make.
User avatar #49 - OtisMcWonderful (05/11/2015) [-]
I don't know. Some of them seem to have it out for me a bit considering that they went out of their way to thumb down every reply I've made, including the one that I only use to correct a typo.

But either way, if they just read a few of the replies and my responses to them they'd see that isn't the case.
User avatar #50 - minorian (05/11/2015) [-]
I know what you mean. I once made a stupid joke, where I wrote "gif" as "jif", and I got 60 thumbs down and 10 replies telling me that I was a neckbeard retard, and all it was, was a bad joke, which I also replied with, but those replies just got lost in the red sea too.

Funnyjunk well, basically any image hosting site is really infamous for their bandwagon thumbing.
User avatar #52 - OtisMcWonderful (05/11/2015) [-]
Yeah. I once made what I thought was a very sensible comment and it got 80ish red thumbs. It was because I used the word pantsu, and it was on a post about Japanese shit. I thought I'd try to be funny and use that word. FJ taught me I was wrong for trying to stray outside the norm. And like you, all of my replies explaining myself only ended up covered in red thumbs.
User avatar #53 - minorian (05/11/2015) [-]
I think getting circle jerked on like that is what creates trolls.
User avatar #55 - OtisMcWonderful (05/11/2015) [-]
Yeah. I can see that.

Its not something that really worries me though. This amount of red thumbs is nothing to me. It's pretty annoying though.
User avatar #56 - minorian (05/11/2015) [-]
I feel the exact same way. One of my replies on that "jif" thread basically said the same. Thumbs are cool to get acknowledged for being funny or creative, but the red ones only make you think about your comment one more time, and if you still think there's nothing wrong with it, then it's just irritating, because it shows how retarded other people can be.

I can understand why you would care about red thumbs back when there were thumb bans, but not any longer, at least if you have a decent amount of thumbs. I have a shit load of red thumbs for telling people how gay or stupid they sound, because it satisfies me more to call people out on their shit than being a part of the circle jerk and getting the greenies.
User avatar #57 - OtisMcWonderful (05/11/2015) [-]
Its kind of funny how much people talk about our "free speech" here when you can post a different opinion and get shit on my red thumbs and replies to the point that you don't want to share that opinion anymore. Its like "we have free speech but if your opinion isn't the same, fuck you." It makes zero sense.
User avatar #66 - testaburger (05/11/2015) [-]
Free speech means people can tell you that your opinions are worthless and that you should shut the fuck up.

It makes all the sense in the world.
The fuck kinda hippie feel-good kind of free speech do you want?
#74 - OtisMcWonderful (05/12/2015) [-]
Absolutely. But it's just how FJ quickly silences opinions. It's like we all have to join the hivemind to post here. No one will post their true opinion because it won't get thumbs, but rather the opposite. And people won't say they agree with it because they don't want those red thumbs either. Certain opinions aren't wrong. It's just that they're different, and FJ goes apeshit hivemind and red thumbs it into oblivion. All it takes is a single, tiny catalyst to set that shit off. See pic related. It's exactly what I mean. My one word reply set off the red thumb storm and got him -151 thumbs.
User avatar #78 - testaburger (05/12/2015) [-]
This happens sometimes.
Not all the time.
User avatar #59 - minorian (05/11/2015) [-]
Again, I love to call people out on their shit if they are being too retarded with their pony shit or too gay with their anime trash, but the way FJ just gather around random comments and starts circle jerking, that is just fucked up.

I don't know if it's me, but I feel like FJ has changed a lot, both for the better and worse. I began lurking here in 2010, because I heard that the content was mostly reposts and there were a lot of weird pony shit and stuff, but that the comments were hilarious, and people were right, but when I browse imgur now, they seem to have taken that role completely, and FJ is just the place, where memes go to die and where every fandom jerks around posts and comments of their fandom.

/rant over
User avatar #60 - OtisMcWonderful (05/11/2015) [-]
I don't really mind how FJ is right now. Ive lurked for 12ish years, had an account for almost 5, and posted comments for under a year.

I've seen it through lots and lots of changes.
User avatar #63 - OtisMcWonderful (05/11/2015) [-]
>>#61

That was pretty much it for me. Cheats were my main use, but I still searched random things on MetaCrawler to see what popped up. I searched for funny jokes one day, and FJ was one of the results. I've been here ever since.
User avatar #61 - minorian (05/11/2015) [-]
Then again, maybe I'm just remembering the good things. When I think closer about it, I can't remember when there wasn't a retarded fad or fandom I was whining about, LOL

12 years, that's impressing. I don't think I used the net for other than googling cheat codes back then

the system itself is very, very corupt. if you read up on the american system it is shockingly appalling the manner in which they choose to act. the prosecution and police system in the US has as little respect for the law as the hardest criminals. the way they choose to both break and abuse laws for purposes they were not written is very serious. there might be some nice officers. i have met several i liked. that there are a few good people does not change a corrupt and morally bankrupt system and culture.

heh, I'm not gonna be a cop, mostly because my personality (lazy pushover) is not what they are looking for, but I still think it's a shame that people have that viewpoint. It's kinda hard though to lump all officers into one category, each city has their own way of doing things, so while I can say my cities police force doesn't have quotas I can't say others do.
#444 - drakthaal (03/27/2015) [-]
there would be a massive problem if 1/20 officers acted in an unprofessional manner. i suspect it is much higher and it is so tolerated throughout police. the police force have so little respect for the law. they do whatever they need to, to achieve their goals no matter if it goes against the purpose of law or not. that makes them dangerous i would even stretch it so far. that such a police force is the enemy of the people and not protectors of them.

"Hi, I'm trying to decrease the number of deaths related to DUI's in our country from 10,000 a year to 0. Would you mind taking 30 seconds out of your day to tell me you aren't under the influence of anything tonight? It bothers you? Okay, please pull over so I and several of my fellow officers can beat the ever-loving shit out of you."

Is this really what you think happens and I mean beyond a statistical anomaly at DUI checkpoints?

mate i suggest you read the whole debate i had with bellow here and you will get a clear image of why some people wouldn't like to. and yes sometimes you can be sent to jail for doing what this guy does.
User avatar #432 - whycanticaps (03/27/2015) [-]
I have seen it. I'm in a Police program at my local college, so while my viewpoint can be skewed, I've seen some of the shit officers do. Like slamming a guys head off the top of the car while throwing him in the cruiser, then holding a taser to his balls and yelling at him to shut up.

Or arresting a guy for no good reason, driving behind a building, and beating him till he dies.

I know some of the shit that goes on, but in all honesty, I myself have gone through many of these Impaired driving checkpoints, and have never had anything but a positive experience.
#436 - drakthaal (03/27/2015) [-]
since you are attending your local police program i assume the way you dress and act might not be the type they are critical off. How you are treated really varies on the way you dress and act and talk. this might be the reason you've had only positive experiences with the checkpoints. but many hold the view that talking to people who gets funding based on how many they arrest with a track record of a large portion who abuse their powers. this is why people don't wish to talk to the police.
