Post by Slander »

When I opened my webcomics links just now (Blog Is Hell! among them), Avast! detected a Trojan horse. Proceed with caution, Ghastly fans.

Someone has been attacking the WCN servers. Not sure what the techs are doing bout it. It's happened before and the culprit was a shady ad network.

I blame the Russians. Everything bad on the Internet originates in Russia.

I can disprove your statement with a single noun - 4Chan.

You're all wrong. It's clearly the beginning of a Cylon invasion.

Ehh. I'm talking about real evils, like malware and botnets and child pornography. Compared to those, random scat porn and HURF DURF NIGERZ* and rickrolls and MAI WAIFUUU~ and using a goddamned tilde as a punctuation mark are all pretty minor.

*Racism is not "ironic." It is not funny. Don't fucking do it.

And I was joking - 4chan isn't evil, simply mostly harmless teenage pranks.
*Racism is not "ironic." It is not funny. Don't fucking do it.
Don't even get me started about Racism.
For example, Americans writing in to complain about an advertisement that never aired in America(only Australia), Was never going to, and of course, the hilarious fact that they were complaining that an advertisement showing Australian cricket fans sharing KFC with West Indies Cricket fans "Perpetuates the stereotype of African Americans consuming fried chicken as a large portion of their diet". Of course, ignoring the fact that complaining about something you've not actually seen, and was never shown to you without you seeking it out specifically, CARIBBEAN DOES NOT EQUAL AFRICAN, AMERICAN, OR ANY COMBINATION OF THE TWO YOU PRESUMPTUOUS RACIST FUCKS.

And of course, let's not forget just about every American with a blog/website/shitty livejournal exploding with accusations of Australia being a racist country, because we DARED show a skit on television where two black guys, and two Indian guys and a white guy paint themselves black to do covers as the Jackson five(except the white guy, who was painted white, and played MJ) and not find it horrifically, we-should-lynch-those-bastards offensive, because, y'know, we didn't do the whole slavery thing, or force black people to do minstrel shows like America did.
That's right - We got Called Racists because we refused to pander to the sensibilities and sense of offense caused by another nation's actions and that blot on their history, from about TWO HUNDRED YEARS BEFORE OUR CONTINENT WAS EVEN DISCOVERED BY THE MODERN WORLD.

I also recall in England Recently, a Councilman was arrested for An email he didn't write, which contained a word that rhymed with a dubiously offensive word which is only racial because the English government decided that Irish Travelers/Gypsies were a "Minority Ethnic group", that nobody complained about.

Seriously, First of all, fuck Racism. Second, Fuck leaping at every shadow of offense screaming racism and knotting up your hanging rope for that horrible person that dared do something that someone, somewhere, might possibly find offensive if they found out about it, and of course, Fuck trying to enforce your morals and own private offense caused by your own horrible actions onto other cultures, who are at the time living quite happily in entirely other nations not related to your own.
