Re: can we talk about how hostile this site is now

@Pumpkinium I mean the majority of why the discord is still talked about is because Triert hasn't let up about his removal from the server and his paranoia about anything that happens behind closed doors. Like without him talking about it, it might have entered a state of obscurity again. If you wan...

Re: can we talk about how hostile this site is now

Your response, Triert, to the administrator comment makes absolutely no sense because Nano hasn't been the administrator for quite some time. Currently Sable and Bunelody are the administrators. What I saw as injustice was people expecting me to change my views and ignoring the respect I gave them f...

Re: can we talk about how hostile this site is now

I was gonna do something fun and silly, but I'm just gonna cut right down to the point. Denying new applicants and excluding a former member are two very different concepts. Are entirely new people who want to join the server denied? No. If they're a CI member, they're accepted. The problem you have...

Re: can we talk about how hostile this site is now

I actually hear about this a lot out of my mom, but not because she's on Chao Island, but because she's on Facebook and has seen how people have changed because of the current state of politics. People who are eager to be divided and fight have found comfort in the current social state, and thus it ...

Re: My problem with the gay community

Honestly this is the same type of issue with people who want to restore the swastika and removing the associations with Nazism. Regardless of previous contexts, it now has a new image that will not fade until a grand generational shift can occur. The difference though is that you still can incorpora...

Re: What do you think kids should know about?

I know this is really media focused, but literature counts, and I think more kids need exposure to philosophy. The most I got was transcendentalism in high school, and that is honestly a joke. Even if it had to be adapted to not be as "authentic", I think kids would really benefit from hearing the i...

Re: Cringe Discussion/Is it right to laugh at embarrassing people?

I think two entirely different concepts are being combined here when criticism is brought into this. I mentioned self-reflection because of the non-constructive commentary that comes with cringe content, requiring us to ask "What went wrong?" on our own, not by those calling out cringe. It is rarely...

Re: Chao Abuse

As a kid I might have done it for alignment, but most of the time it was accidental. When I did breeding tests on Sonic Adventure on Dreamcast, though, I would use E-102 Gamma to cull the newborn Chao in the garden, since they're made of glass and were only bred for cheap on the VMU. On all other ve...

Re: Cringe Discussion/Is it right to laugh at embarrassing people?

I think cringe culture is only bad if you're incapable of applying it to yourself. Like I'm not a fan of cringe, because I used to get really uncomfortably when I'd see old stuff where I did really cringey things. I'd sympathize with that person and be like "They'll outgrow it or were just caught in...

Re: Venezuela

I genuinely like to discuss politics, but I say "discuss", not "fight about". I'd say "argue", but people mistake that for meaning fighting instead of debating or discussing. To me, discussion means talking about the content from an unbiased position, as best as possible. Yes, I personally feel we n...

No idea, but I can't wait until people start writing about their times during the Trump administration. Because I'm sure we'll have some wild stories that never made it to the news, just based on what we do see.

Re: Venezuela

I may be mistaken, but I believe you're confusing the death of socialism with a requirement of socialism. All forms of government have a stage of death, but at that point, they become something else. A stage of death for socialism, under natural corruption, is becoming authoritarian. A stage of deat...
