No, see, this guy didn't do anything wrong. The cop threads are always in response to a cop being an extreme douche or total criminal.

dallylamma: LewDux: Dr.Zom: it seems odd that when I google Seungmin Cho, patent consultant, The phrase "Great people of east Asia don't need you. We will own this century, and the next, and the next, until all non-Asians are essentially pounded to submission" doesn't immediately accompany it. That seems odd to me. You would think when you google Seungmin Cho the phrase "Great people of east Asia don't need you. We will own this century, and the next, and the next, until all non-Asians are essentially pounded to submission" would be the first thing that popped up.

Try it yourself. Search Seungmin Cho, patent consultant, and see if the phrase "Great people of east Asia don't need you. We will own this century, and the next, and the next, until all non-Asians are essentially pounded to submission" pops up.

So you read on the internets that Seungmin Cho, patent consultant, said that and immediately began witch-hunt

Search Seungmin Cho, patent consultant, and see if the phrase "Great people of east Asia don't need you. We will own this century, and the next, and the next, until all non-Asians are essentially pounded to submission" pops up.


I think Seungmin Cho, patent consultant is going to be receiving some pretty interesting emails and calls from his clients in the upcoming weeks.

if_i_really_have_to: Heron: bel4sucks: "Nom de rap"..... farkin white people

Well, pretentious people. "Stage name" would have served well enough but I guess the writer was feeling like a bit of a showboat.

Huh, so the state of American education has degraded past the point where the very common phrase 'nom de plume' and any variation thereof is one that only showboat pretentious elites use.

Good to know. Sad, but good to know.


To begin with, my "pretentious" comment was more a joking response about how pretentiousness isn't an exclusive thing to white folks, which the joking comment I was responding to sort of implies. As to the phrase in question, I just think it's a silly way to refer to music artists. It certainly isn't a common usage in criticism, and I've never seen a singer use "nom de plume", or any variation thereof, instead of "stage name". Do critics even use that for author pen-names anymore? I certainly haven't read a review that did in the last decade.

The whole point of that first paragraph up there is that the "nom de" construction isn't an immediately obvious one in critical writing in the US (in or out of academia), which makes its use a decision of style. He chose to use it; he didn't just grab a common turn of phrase. And why choose it? For the same reason any author makes a stylistic decision in non-fiction writing; to make a statement about himself. He wanted to let the reader know that he, a culture writer at Wired, was the sort of guy who put French phraseology into his articles. Now, if this were the 1920s, or if he were writing for the New York Review of Books, then that wouldn't be a big deal; in fact it'd be taken for granted that he'd do that sort of thing. But in a Wired article about a Korean pop star? Of course it stands out; that's why he used it.

Now none of it's a big deal. I'm not sitting here stewing in resentment for an author who's name I didn't even bother to read, over a single word choice. Diction isn't srsbsn to me, or anything. However, if your take away from an off-handed comment about archaic phraseology is that the US public education system is a broken down hellhole, then I'm going to have to write a three paragraph essay explaining the usually unspoken reasoning behind why I, and certain other commentors on the internet, might find such things moderately ridiculous.

Bondith: Students also typically write a thesis to attain a master's, and yet Lee admitted that he never wrote one. (His program didn't require a thesis.)

Ahhh, so it wasn't a real Master's.

Still sucks that some jerkwad ruined this guy's life and shat upon his legitimate accomplishments (real or not, getting two degrees in less time than it normally takes to get one is still an accomplishment) out of petty jealousy lulz.

Most universities in North America are dropping thesis projects altogether or strongly warning students away from thesis projects. It is sad and lamentable and motivated entirely by money. They are making grad school cheap, in the worst sense.

Also, there is a lack of faculty advisors and a lack of students capable of long meditative projects. Of course, that was always the case, which is why grad school was prestigious.

GeneralJim: I can relate. I've got my own psychotic Fark stalker. Pretty much every time I post, the little asswipe will post anything I've ever posted on Fark with which he disagrees.

He also gets involved with vast conspiracy theories based, mostly, on the timing of my posts. If I go take a dump, there's a three-page conspiracy theory about it waiting when I get back - at least some days. He's quite ignorant, but copypastas information from the Web, trying to look like some sort of scientician. I've called him on it, repeatedly, which is probably the origin of the stalking. If he put as much effort into tracking ANYTHING scientifically as he does into tracking all my posts, he could be a published PhD. by now.

Fortunately for me, the creeper doesn't know where I live, other than the landmass, or my full name. I also don't have a rap career to ruin, so I've got that going for me. And, I have to admit, I sometimes post in such a way that I *KNOW* I'll set off his Asperger's Syndrome, or ass-burner's, or whatever it is that he has. It's simply fascinating to watch him wrap himself around his own axle. I know it's not nice to use the illness of another for amusement, but I've already got a window seat, and a Kosher meal (always a good idea, even for goyim like me) reserved, so it could be worse

And, I KNOW that if he's reading this thread, he simply will not be able to resist replying -- at least now without twitching uncontrollably for hours. I'll wait. *SNERK*


Yawn. Normally I have your sad, attention-starved arse on ignore, but I had to see what that other guy was replying to. But here's what's what: You're really only an entitiy worth attention in climate change threads; and it's not because of your attention-whoring green text and the malformed spastic ideas your vagina finger type out, but rather because the replies to you are classic beatdowns. It's pretty difficult to believe that you - if you are similar to your gleefully smug, proudly ignorant, lying, moronic, Dunning-Kruger pinup boy of a Fark persona - have any actual human beings who give a danm about you.
 
2012-04-25 06:57:14 AM
After having looked through that article, and this type thing is something I've wondered about for some time, my question is this. There are people who treat any evidence, no matter how shaky as reasonable evidence if not strong evidence if not outright proof they're right. Any evidence that they're wrong is misinterpreted, fake, something that doesn't matter or otherwise flawed. So clearly, they have chosen to believe the way they do. Yet they refuse to admit they have chosen to believe that way and tell the real reason why they so badly want what they have chosen to believe is true. Why is that?

After the master troll was outed, he started getting harassed himself, and is now calling on Tablo and his other haters to be the better man and call of the lawsuit and harassment against HIM. He also says that the whole thing was just a ploy to expose Tablo's "protectors", as he believes there is a conspiracy to protect social elites like Tablo. Yep, he's very much an asshole.

We're talking about Seungmin Cho, aka Samuel, patent consultant, right? We're supposed to Googles Seungmin Cho, aka Samuel, patent consultant and see if the phrase "Great people of east Asia don't need you.

I just want to make sure we're talking about the right Seungmin Cho, aka Samuel, patent consultant and not some other Seungmin Cho, aka Samuel, patent consultant.

Is that as confoundingly stupid as you wrote it, or is there even more stupid lurking behind it that we can't see?


*sigh*
I probably shouldn't bite, but...

The first was me faux-snarking. I have an M.Sc. (the hardest of the hard-core thesis programs), so I tend to look down on any other Master's degree in quasi-good-natured interdisciplinary rivalry. The next bit was a "But seriously, folks" moment where I put the snark aside and gave kudos to the guy in not only getting an accelerated degree but attaining distinction over and over the requirements.

Now go fark yourself.
