  1. Who's hyped for the Discord child grooming ring investigation?
    I bet it won't be too long until the entire thing goes under

    3. @nerthos With 'thing' you mean the grooming thing, yes? I mean I like Discord and I have seen quite a few doomsayers preaching that Discord will die because of it.

      1. @drinkingpony @scribus @microsbm Yes, the grooming and the staff complicity with it, with the whole "it's not pedo if it's furry even though loli is bannable!!!" thing.
        Which should come as no surprise considering the kind of stuff some of the higher ups at the company are into.

        A chat client where grooming takes place is no more guilty than a park where a rape takes place, under normal circumstances, but when the criminals and the staff belong to the same fringe group and look after eachother, the situation starts to change.

        1. @nerthos I hope you are not planning to shut down all parks. I am not trying to downplay anything as what is happening is horrible and shut be shut down by any appropriate means. The question is that people have totally different outlooks on what are appropriate means.

          But in the end, things like MSN did not die because of a child grooming, Skype is still around even, and so is Central Park. We'll just have to wait for the FBI (+ perhaps some other country agencies) to conclude their findings.

          Waiting is not one of the things I am good at.

          1. @drinkingpony That was by no means my implication.

            It was instead that in this particular case there seems to be conspiracy between the staff and the criminals to cover eachother.

            To be honest I couldn't care less about what drawn porn perverts share with eachother, as long as it's drawn as opposed to real porn. I don't know if the service will go down or not, but I do expect one or two staff members to at the very least pay bail because of it.

            1. @nerthos Agreed, 'seems' is the operational word. I am sorry if I unwittingly took your words out of context but, well. Lets just agree that if it were up to people like you and me that Kero the Wolf would be in jail already.

              We are going to have to trust the proper agencies to step in and 'protect us' from not only the evils that have happened but also the obvious nightmare-fuel material

              Waiting is not one of the things I am good at, but at at the very least I am happy that there is no blind burnings of the witches anymore.

              1. @drinkingpony Of course. I don't want a witch hunt or anything. There are several groups I dislike but I've made a point of believing in justice since I joined here, and dropping justice in favour of tribalistic glee at the other group going under the bus would jeopardize all the effort I've made to be recognized as an honourable person.

                1. @nerthos Ah, good, there seem to be more than enough wild witch-hunts going around on the internet.

                  Also there is this thing http://rainbowdash.net/url/873858

                  Which is not what you think it is ( trust me on that )

              2. @drinkingpony I do have a personal feud with this Kero guy for appropiating the term. That word belongs to frogs and frog allies, and using it in a pedophilic wolf context is cultural appropiation.

                about 10 months ago from web
                1. @nerthos I have no idea what term this Kero guy appropriated actually.

                  about 10 months ago from web
                  1. @drinkingpony I was just joking about the word "kero", japanese onomatopeia for the sound a frog makes, hence characters named things like "kero kero keroppi" or "keroro gunsō", as the guy uses the word as his alias.

                    I would never use a term like "cultural appropiation" outside of a joke.

                    1. @nerthos Aw man, now I can never look at Pepe ever again without thinking of how some people think roadkill is delicious in the non culinary way.
