    [–] I'm pretty sure most of us love this game - can we please have seperate discussion tags? coheedcollapse 2 points ago in FFBraveExvius

    You can continue playing and enjoying a game while still being pissed off at the behavior of the developer. It's not mutually exclusive. In fact, I'd say the more hardcore players are much more likely to find things they're upset about.

    I think the most damaging thing, to Gumi, in this whole scenario is that we've got JP to compare to, so Gumi's motives become incredibly apparent when we miss an event, or when they release a transparently money-hungry bundle of one type or another.

    FFBE is pretty much par for the course as F2P Gacha games go, but it sucks to know that people under another developer are being treated better because of decisions Gumi is making.

    [–] Rather.. interesting video with rubber dolls. coheedcollapse 1 points ago in DeepIntoYouTube

    This is double-weird because Harland Williams is a reasonably well-known comedian.

    I was initially taken aback by how weird the video was, then I saw his name as the creator and was like "wtf?"

    This is good deepintoyoutube material.

    [–] SIM cards could soon be built into processors to save even more space coheedcollapse 4 points ago in Android

    if you have to finance it

    The operative part is "have to".

    I've got more than enough money in savings to buy a phone, but the longer I have my money on me, the longer I have it on hand or to put into other stuff, whether it be in my savings account or investments.

    If they wanna give me an interest free loan and not charge me anything extra over the payback period, I'll totally take advantage of it.

    I've paid my phones off in full in the past, but I'm thinking of getting a Pixel 2 at some point if I can get a sale price on it, and I'll likely take advantage of Google's monthly plan.

    [–] Trump directs attorney general to create regulations to ban ‘bump stocks’ coheedcollapse 1 points ago in politics

    Oh yeah, absolutely. I can only imagine the outrage if a democrat would have done this.

    They'll be spinning this hard at t_d. Should be interesting to see what "solution" they end on. Usually it takes a few hours for the Russian bots to spread the party message on Twitter before it filters back to t_d, so I suspect there will be discord at least until later tonight.

    use it as a way to push harder for actual action

    Same. My fear is that they see this "action" and they ease up on the administration because they're doing "something". We all need to continue pushing as hard as we have been since Florida, or else this is going to be forgotten in a week like Las Vegas.

    [–] Trump directs attorney general to create regulations to ban ‘bump stocks’ coheedcollapse 1 points ago in politics

    Well that is certainly surprising.

    It's not super surprising. It'll absolutely piss off some of his base, but this particular move is about as close to "pretending to do something about gun control while actually doing nothing" as a politician can get.

    He's doing this now because of all of the heat he's getting about Florida so that it'll take attention away from his inaction, on a large scale.

    I'm just hoping it doesn't work and people keep the heat up.

    I'm glad she was able to find a nice cozy home to live in - I know declawed cats can have an incredibly bad time in the wild, so it's great you took her in.

    I know that pain. I'm fairly certain I'm severely allergic to cats, but I stupidly keep on taking them in.

    Thanks for your story!

    My other cats are less flamboyantly named - I've got Bear, a giant black cat, and Poco, a tiny grey and black cat who is very stupid. I'm usually pretty bad at thinking up good names, haha.

    [–] Dog found tied to tree with note attached to collar gets adopted coheedcollapse 1 points ago in UpliftingNews

    That's an awesome story. Glad Hobbes found somewhere warm with loving people to live!

    [–] Dog found tied to tree with note attached to collar gets adopted coheedcollapse 1 points ago in UpliftingNews

    PEOPLE CARE

    They do! if anything, the outpouring of love and great stories of rescued cats that came in response to my silly post attest to that.

    [–] Dog found tied to tree with note attached to collar gets adopted coheedcollapse 1 points ago in UpliftingNews

    Absolutely!

    On a related note, I'm very pleased at the number of people who figured out his name was a HFTMT reference!

    Pulled it from a brilliant improv comedy podcast that I'm a fan of - Hello from the Magic Tavern. There's a wizard in it who is "Master of light and shadow", so we thought the name fixed since he's black and white.

    [–] Dog found tied to tree with note attached to collar gets adopted coheedcollapse 20 points ago in UpliftingNews

    Ugh, I can't even understand how people can be so awful to strays. Poisoned food and all that.

    That's an awful origin story with a very, very happy ending. Same to you! Glad your cat found a loving home and you found a cat friend in the meantime, haha.

    [–] Dog found tied to tree with note attached to collar gets adopted coheedcollapse 4 points ago in UpliftingNews

    The one and only! Master of light and shadow!

    Considering the fact that he's a punk, Chunt may have been a better name, but it'd be a bit weirder to say with company around!

    My wife wouldn't make me choose between the immediate dumping of a cat and her love.

    If you can't take the time to find a good home for an animal that you've taken in and can no longer care for, you don't deserve to have an animal in the first place.

    I can't even imagine forcing any of my cats into certain death, helpless and alone, even in their worst moments. It's fucked up that anyone can, honestly.

    That's actually how my wife and I found our cat. Someone dumped them. We found him in a business complex off of a highway, so we were pretty sure he was dumped anyway. That said, he was quite affectionate and had no injuries, so we spent a few days canvassing the area, and a few weeks looking for owners online. We didn't come up with anyone, so we took him in.

    I'm pissed as hell at the idiot who is missing out on this sweet, hilarious cat, but I'm glad circumstances conspired to get him under our roof, at least.

    Not that anyone cares, but here he is. His name is Usidore.

    [–] Reddit’s The_Donald Was One Of The Biggest Havens For Russian Propaganda During 2016 Election, Analysis Finds coheedcollapse 11 points ago * (lasted edited 5 days ago) in technology

    They've been hitting a lot of regional subreddits. /r/chicago has also been a pretty heavy target for them, and has been since the middle of the election.

    Also info-heavy subreddits. I've seen a lot of incels/racist/t_d types pushing their agenda in /r/documentaries over the past year.

    I can't speak for OP, but I've taken photos of a few of these launches and they usually have a GPS attached to a cell phone in the box with the camera and they chase it in a chase car.

    The last one I shot had some sort of radio transmitter in it and it would ping a network every minute or so with updates on heading, altitude, location, and speed. You could look it up on a public website. It was pretty cool.

    [–] Megathread: Office of Special Counsel Indicts 13 Russian Nationals and 3 Russian Entities for Interference in 2016 Election coheedcollapse 1 points ago in politics

    Funniest thing is they're still calling it a nothingburger, they're just shifting their goal posts.

    Before, Russian interference with the election didn't exist, now they're just saying "Oh, it happened, but it didn't do anything and Trump's admin had no idea it was happening!"

    YouTube commenters that stupid?

    God yes. They're some of the dumbest internet commenters.

    To give you an example of how bad it is, I actually have a plugin that replaces Youtube comments with Reddit comments and they're better by a large margin. Considering how bad Reddit comments often are, that's saying something.

    It's also clear it didn't effect the outcome.

    How so? Their bot networks reached hundreds of thousands of people, all the way to the near-top, where multiple people close to or in Trump's administration reposted propaganda from @ten_GOP, one of the named Twitter accounts in this document.

    Of course that's not tangible evidence of the outcome of the election shifting, and there's really no way that I can think of to conclusively prove that it shifted the public opinion, but it'd be naive to assume that commanding the public discussion like some of these bots did had no power over voters in the US.

    create division and discourse

    One would argue that the "division and discourse" that they sowed to split the democrat vote via Bernie was pretty damn powerful. If the never Hillary movement was empowered or even started via this propaganda network, it would have pretty interesting implications on their effect on the outcome.

    Hah, at least they're moving the goalposts now instead of still claiming that it never happened.

    Hopefully the fact that some of the Twitter accounts they eagerly idolized, followed, and reposted were operated by Russian propagandists eats away at them just a bit, even if they don't admit it publicly.

    [–] Pro-Gun Russian Bots flood Twitter after Parkland shooting coheedcollapse -2 points ago * (lasted edited 7 days ago) in news

    It's possible that they missed accounts, but from what I understand, they traced many of the tweets back to a single Russian organization, and they were all kind of "interwoven" with each other via the subjects they tweeted about and repeated.

    It's a reasonable question to ask, of course, but I'm not sure if it's an issue with this particular dataset, since most were run by the same organization, the IRA.

    Considering both Twitter and Facebook took money from Russian organizations to push their agenda via sponsored posts (or offered to), I don't think they've got anything against propaganda from either side as long as it makes them money, so I don't think they've got much of an incentive to discriminate against one vs the other.
