The first rule of herd-joining for the insecure is to focus negative attention on others to be excluded and castigated. If you're part of the mob bullying others, then you're not the one getting bullied.

Calling it the opposite of what it is right to your face while suspending disbelief of the lie? That's just the doubleThink that is the life's blood of the pathalogically lying collectivist-authoritarian Left, and it's now running thick in the arteries of our truth machine (news media, educational systems, academia).

Trump's election was a cry of "The Emperor Has No Clothes!", and it resonated with most, but the bullshit machine chatters on unabated and the brainwashing runs deep.

It may be necessary to resort to Plan Zeta.

Now, dudes, be honest with yourself, does a country where such events are becoming regular deserve surviving? Or put it this way, will this country have the strength to withstand competition?

a country who's educational system permits the perpetuation of this type of thinking does not deserve surviving and YES this includes the UK where the "no Platform" movement exists, akin to america's "safe space"

The people usually ain't bad, the system usually projects a whole country. In it self, politics out of the folk sphere, cannot survive. It's doomed to begin with.
So f- the system. I'd start with that.

Thanks. I don't have the energy to keep up with their mental gymnastics.

Hopefully. I'll stop there to keep it positive.

This is at least the same behavior observable decades ago.

SteelSeries released an official statement on their Facebook page

Our Statement on BullyHunters

STEELSERIES·SATURDAY, APRIL 14, 2018

BullyHunters pitched us with a simple idea - let’s work together to fight online harassment. And because we believe that’s a noble cause, we supported it.

It’s now clear that we didn’t do a good job in understanding exactly what we were supporting. And we’re sorry for that.

The way BullyHunters represented the gaming community was wrong and disingenuous. Most gamers don’t experience harassment, and more importantly, 99%+ of gamers don’t do the harassing. We’re well aware of the many faults with BullyHunters. We hear you guys, and we agree.
To clear a few things up: BullyHunters was not a viral campaign stage-managed by us. We did not hire a marketing agency to create it. We didn’t have anything to do with its execution, content or messaging. And more importantly, we would never take advantage of an issue like bullying to sell hardware. They asked us to supply some headsets, support the call for positive change, and we did.

Although we still believe in a world where harassment isn’t tolerated, it’s clear to us that BullyHunters is hurting, not helping, that cause. On Friday, we ended our support and partnership with the organization.

We apologize to those who support our brand and expect more due diligence in vetting out campaigns and partnerships we associate ourselves with.

CyberPowerPC & SteelSeries have distanced themselves, so now on the bottom of the BullyHunters.org website the only partners listed are Diverse Gaming Coalition & National Organization for Women. :lol:

CORRECTION : https://bullyhunters.org/ The site is down!

According to Richard Lewis. it looks like SteelSeries might be looking at legal action against FCB Chicago because of the damage done to their brand by partnering with SJWs.

Quote:
Japanese knotweed, a plant so destructive and difficult to kill that it is illegal to allow it to spread from your property, has been unfairly maligned, according to an environmentalist.

Fred Pearce, a journalist and consultant for New Scientist magazine, is due to give a talk this week at the Edinburgh Science Festival that will argue that the language used to describe “invasive species” is xenophobic.


This shit is nasty! you can't dispose of it at the tip, you can't burn it, can easily wipe £10,000 off every house in the area if it is found ...

Not enough as an initial response, or not enough as an only response, or something else? I'm curious what would be enough.

I'm leery of almost any PR response, but they at least seemed somewhat honest about recognizing their mistake. Which is better than a lot of play-it-safe responses. I can't say I would resume a customer relationship with them because of the letter, but I'm not sure I could say that their response wasn't enough. I'd probably have to weigh it against other "causes" they supported.

Can they win a lawsuit? If they can, excellent but it seems their own ignorance contributed greatly.

not enough in general.
The sharp rise in identity politics, the rise in associated victimhood where people judge via social media praising those to follow a collective reasoning and ostracise those that don't or even worse... question the reasoning behind... The #meToo hashtag, he will not divide us, trial by socialmedia...

Why did StealStorm agree to this? because they wanted to be seen to be part of a "solution" why? money either due to more business or not losing business.
Companies don't care, companies are legal entities that make profit to exist. Do you really think the yearly sexual harassment ethics training is occurring because the "company" really cares about the female employees? NO! they care about the legal costs when they lose. same with bribery...

It is the constant one-sided domination which is sickening. The recent Ch4 trainwreck of an interview is evident of this. Cathy Newman & Jordan Peterson. She went in to entrap as she already had an agenda to destroy his platform and this was clear in the interview. He however saw this and equally knew his subject very, very well (the lobster thing was shear class). However it was the reactions afterwards that were telling. Rather that facing up to the fact that her interview technique was aggressive, full of hostility, she played the victim "I have been subject to tonnes of abuse online, misogynistic attacks" ... Jordan was subject to ~40x more. Does it make either right? no but it does set the stage for a narrative as it appeals to the masses...

Why is this important here? an agency wanted to setup an anti-bully system where if you were bullied online you can ping one of them and they will come in and "own the bully"... Guess what, that's not how it works online and even more so in CSGO. In CSGO are you really going to go "oh I don't want to shoot that enemy as I am after a specific player" ? NO! you will shoot because otherwise you will DIE! [ALL] chat is disabled in-game so how are you going to talk to the other team? THIS is assuming this whiteknight joins on the other team. If they join on the team of this bully GUESS what... you CANNOT FRIENDLY-FIRE in pubs.
You can on torny but backfilling isn't permitted so this isn't possible.
Finally if the game is full you can't join.

Had steelseries actually spent any time looking into what this bully enterprise stated they were going to do rather than thinking about the social "likes" they would have seen the entire enterprise was flawed.
The narrative is always the same woman are the victims yet the facts paint a different story

Funny thing is, this is the same generation suffering a huge surge in oral cancer because they all grew up watching porn and firmly believe gobbling uglies is an absolute prerequisite.

Militarized Cops At Tiny Georgia Neo-Nazi Rally Arrest Counterprotesters For Wearing Masks

The lead officer in the arrests said the counterprotesters were breaking a state law regarding masks, likely referring to a seldom-enforced 1951 law originally aimed at combating hooded Ku Klux Klan members. Anti-fascist protesters ― many belonging to chapters of antifa groups, known for sometimes violently confronting white supremacists ― often wear masks to avoid being identified by both law enforcement and neo-Nazis.
...
“The irony of enforcing masking laws to prosecute leftists is just incredible,” said Molly, a counterprotester from Charlottesville, Virginia, who traveled to Georgia to protest neo-Nazis. She asked that her last name not be published for fear of retribution. “Those are anti-Klan statutes.”
