    [–] It really do be like that sometimes weltallic 1 points ago in The_Donald

    Posts a submission every 2 months or so.

    Never comments. Only the odd submission.

    Until... Jul 8, 2018

    Suddenly 10-30 COMMENTS EVERY SINGLE DAY

    I wonder what happened that fateful day in July, 2018 to spark such a radical shift in reddit account behavior...?

    [–] UK Prime Minister Theresa May wins confidence vote weltallic 0 points ago * (lasted edited 7 hours ago) in worldnews

    Brexit

    Imagine if your country voted on Gay Marriage, and the YES vote won, and so the government introduced the Gay Marriage Act... which legalizes Civil Unions, which the government says is "just like marriage, so why are you complaining?"

    Some people on reddit are passionate about Brexit (often based on their own political leanings), but wether you are for or against it, it's still hardcore extreme disconcerting that a government could hold a vote, and then disregard the outcome because "the people made the wrong choice, they just don't know it, and good parents must sometimes say NO."

    Right or wrong; the people voted. Let the consequences be what they may.

    Giving people a choice means sometimes people make the wrong choice. If you think that is too high a price to pay... then democracy is not for you, and you should make your peace with that.

    Another former employee who worked for the company for two years and asked not to be named because of an NDA, said, “When older men, senior reporters, or managers would hook up with young female reporter after young female reporter, [my manager] would kind of a shrug and say, ‘Well, non-traditional workplace environment.’”

    Sometimes I feel a little bit internet famous when I see one of my comments somewhere else

    I wish there was a way to tell.

    One time I found out one of my comments had been submitted to [Insert another dwindling, all-but-forgotten Anti-GG subreddit HERE], but it was weeks later. Felt like I missed a chance to post in that thread.

    brigading itself is in a kind of limbo state of being both against sitewide rules and core functionality to reddit at the same time

    The saddest cringe is that all the so-called "women" on kotakuinaction ADMITTED they're actually men:

    Boogie is a modern day miracle.

    Who else could bring the EEW GAMERS and EEW SJWS subreddits together, and unite them in the common ground of despising Boogie's radical centrism?

    We spend so much time demonizing the other side that we've lost sight perhaps of the greater truth that there is more that unites redditors than divides them. Let our disdain for Boogie's fundamentalist centrist extremism bring us together at long last.

    [–] Stormy Daniels Ordered To Pay President Trump $293,000 In Legal Fees weltallic 4 points ago in The_Donald

    Remember when the media (especially TIME magazine) kept sending not-so-subtle warning shots to Trump about the Stormy story breaking?

    "Hey, Mr. "president"! A storm is coming. Did you hear that? I said a storm is coming down. Gonna get a bit stormy in here, y'know what I'm saying? YOU KNOW WHAT I'M SAYING? So... yeah... you might wanna tone things down and start working with us, because we have a story. And we're gonna write about it. About the STORM facing your presidency."

    Funny how that worked out.

    Silicon Valley tech giants have come together to oppose Donald Trump and his candidacy for the US presidency.

    "Authors of the letter include Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, Facebook co-founder Dustin Moskovitz, eBay founder Pierre Omidyar, Qualcomm executive chairman Paul Jacobs, Slack CEO and co-founder Stewart Butterfield, Hyperloop One general counsel Marvin Ammori, Flickr co-founder Caterina Fake, Tumblr CEO David Karp, Twitter VP of products Josh McFarland and former Google director Kim Malone, among others."

     

    And here is a tech exec having a post-election, obscenity-laced public meltdown, cursing at his host and her audience that people like him just didn't censor enough.

    Google's Remarkably Close Relationship With Obama's White House - The Intercept

    But direct expenditures on lobbying represent only one part of the larger influence-peddling game. Google’s lobbying strategy also includes throwing lavish D.C. parties; making grants to trade groups, advocacy organizations, and think tanks; offering free services and training to campaigns, congressional offices, and journalists; and using academics as validators for the company’s public policy positions.

    Eric Schmidt, executive chairman of Alphabet, Google’s parent company, was an enthusiastic supporter of both of Obama’s presidential campaigns and has been a major Democratic donor.

     

    Report shows Google has given 197 former US government employees jobs - The Next Web

    Google has been called “the best company to work for in America” by Business Insider thanks to its reported emphasis on employee happiness – and that message has clearly reached Capitol Hill as 197 government staff have moved there since Obama took office.

    That’s on top of 61 people who’ve moved from Google (and related firms, including those entirely funded by Alphabet’s Eric Schmidt) to government in that time.

     

    WikiLeaks emails: Hillary Clinton campaign had 'discreet conversations' with Google - Washington Times

    “Working relationships with Google, Facebook, Apple, and other technology companies were important to us in 2012 and should be even more important to you in 2016, given their still-ascendent positions in the culture,” Mr. Goff said. “These partnerships can bring a range of benefits to a campaign, from access to talent and prospective donors to early knowledge of beta products and invitations to participate in pilot programs. We have begun having discreet conversations with some of these companies to get a sense of their priorities for the coming cycle, but would encourage you, as soon as your technology leadership is in place, to initiate more formal discussions.”

    The document also notes that Eric Schmidt, chief executive of Google’s parent company Alphabet, had a team that was working on “important products” for Mrs. Clinton’s campaign.
