What's with 4chan's war on women lately?  Did they not get a date for junior prom?

Great, so now Gawker is going to have a bunch of fascist, self-important modmins dictating which porn you can post? Next they'll be asking for $5 to get into the cool clique. Internet 2.0 has jumped the shark.

James!: What's with 4chan's war on women lately?


I am not defending 4chan here, because I don't like Jezebel being synonomous with women.

I see this as an attack on SJW who cry "trigger".

It's not just Jezebel they've been attacking.

What's the thought process here? Someone complained that talking about upsetting shiat reminds them of upsetting shiat that happened to them so post a bunch of rape gifs for reasons?

Because posting violent images of women being raped is a totally rational response to a story about girls playing little league or Michelle Obama. And no one should ever complain about that because that would make them...what exactly?

Oh right--SJWs. Well fark them, the Jezebels.

Yeah, see above, I am not arguing it is rational or justified, just that it isn't an attack on all women.

They've been hitting basically anywhere women congregate to talk about shiat.  Jezebel just doesn't have a moderating staff so they're having a difficult time keeping up with them.
 
2014-08-11 03:18:09 PM  
That's bullshiat and I will skullfark anyone who says otherwise!

Can you explain this briefly? Kinja is the underlying platform they're on and is responsible for modding? I honestly don't know how things work or are supposed to work over there.

And most of the time it might be fine but when you get raided by dipshiats it becomes a problem.

I remember back in 2009 (I think), when there was an online campaign to get Wil Wheaton in the clown
sweater to #1 on GLAMOUR Magazine's best dressed list for the week.  A bunch of 4chan-tards kept
posting completely vile images of dead corpses and such in the comment stream and a bunch of
Farkers took it on themselves to try to keep them from showing up on the initial thread listing, only to have
GLAMOUR completely nuke the thread on the Monday.

So you believe that women (and men) who complain about the complete lack of moderation of images, gifs and videos about the violent rape of women are SJWs?

No, I think Jezebel is a steaming pile of shiat, and a "war" (posting images many find offensive) on them isn't a war on women.

I never made a statement about simply having a problem with these images or this tactic makes you a SJW, that is soemthing created entirely in your head.

Yeah, it was one of those 'Worst' and 'Best' of humanity moments that did, indeed, prove that the only
real power in the world goes to the dickbags.

I can't believe I actually want to go back to the 80s and 90s when us guys were supposed to be "sensitive" and "metrosexual."

As much as that was annoying, it was better than whatever this is that's developing now.

They should try switching to Scoop for their commenting system. I hear it's pretty great!

One thing I learned from my time on the intertubes is that if you openly show that someone posting "x" will get a rise out of you, prepare for a barrage of it.

I also learned that if you don't like something, just keep scrolling. Getting into Internet fights is often a no win scenario.

Just a wild guess, but it's unlikely 4channers have anything but the most cursory acquaintance with bible stories. This goes double for the minor league old testament tales that never got the Hollywood blockbuster treatment.

If  you do everything you can to cultivate a community of hyper-sensitive ninnies who never met an idea that didn't offend them, don't be surprised when the trolls come looking for you and all your fainting couches are occupied in short order.

Come on, whether you intended to or not, you made a trolling honeypot.

Mr_Fabulous: I honestly don't know what an SJW is. Should I?


Social Justice Warrior.

Essentially, someone who thinks all the ills of the world can be blamed on white, heterosexual men. They tend to have a victim complex, create new sexual orientations and genders that apply only to them, invent new pronouns to describe themselves, and self-diagnose mental illness.

Here's some of the best: http://wtfsocialjustice.tumblr.com/

I endangered my Fark cred by RTFA. They say their platform (Kinja) lacks mod tools for dealing with Anonymous Assholes, e.g. they can't block by IP address.

Seems like they should disable images in comments until 4chan blows over, or until they get better mod tools. By mentioning "anonymous tipsters" I think they're implying Gawker deliberately keeps anonymous commenting around for journalism reasons.
