Re: Alex's Stream Shelter? Safe Spaces? Echo Chambers? DISCU

Some semi-connected thoughts. I think the dangers of echo chambers is real, but ultimately it's up to the individual to spot them and avoid them, or at least also frequent other communities to get a wider view of things. I feel the same about the Stream Shelter, etc. Hiding away forever is probably...

Re: Alex's Stream Shelter? Safe Spaces? Echo Chambers? DISCU

I think that's one of the reasons I love the Stream Shelter so much, when opinions do get raised and they are different, we're quick to discuss and engage. Angry Optimist and Myself often spar on the notions of honesty integrity and human nature. It's good fun.

Re: Alex's Stream Shelter? Safe Spaces? Echo Chambers? DISCU

There is no line for full-scale panic. Panic doesn't get shit done. First comes calling out bad stuff as it happens, second comes public protest, and thereafter public disruption to varying extents. Personally, I don't think panic is a useful response at any point. Panic isn't the right word I gran...

Re: Alex's Stream Shelter? Safe Spaces? Echo Chambers? DISCU

Anyone who is elected should be criticised. The fear that is happening at the moment, not completely unjustified, to me isn't warranted until the bad things start happening. Be prepared but don't jump to worst case scenario. All that's going to happen is people working themselves up into a fuss and...

Re: Alex's Stream Shelter? Safe Spaces? Echo Chambers? DISCU

I got tired of writing long winded posts, and I had a lot to say so I decided to just say it instead. I ended up going way longer than I thought I would. If I had any sort of patience for video editing, I could whittle it down. I ended up recording an hour of stuff which is just too goddammed long....

Re: Politics and the Vague Fear of Something Called Donald T

I often distinguish a fear of trump with a Fear of his most radical supporters. A fear which I already bore in mind. I'm afraid of what his most loonie supporters might do, as I always was, and what the senate/house being republican might change. I personally find him not particularly frightening, P...

Re: Alex's Stream Shelter? Safe Spaces? Echo Chambers? DISCU

I'll try to check it out at some point once DB is over. I feel like something interesting could be done with a stream. Perhaps something that encourages audience participation but doesn't make it mandatory. I would like to get a feel for the atmosphere before I make any suggestions. My gut instinct...

Re: Alex's Stream Shelter? Safe Spaces? Echo Chambers? DISCU

I think the best analogy we've come up with for the Stream Shelter is a bar. You're free to say what you want, act as you want, and while this is a place where we will be allowing people a chill environment to detox from the stresses of the world and garner great support from loving and caring peop...

Re: Alex's Stream Shelter? Safe Spaces? Echo Chambers? DISCU

Let's just consider, for a moment, that the person trying to apply "tough love" to me doesn't know me or my situation better than I do. Or better than my psychiatrist does. Let's consider that I have effective, healthy ways to deal with stress given to my by my psychiatrist. Let's conside...

As a point of order, I just now googled you, since you mentioned streaming I figured you'd have an online presence.

Re: Venting Thread Delta - Now With Easy to Follow Rules

Absolutely fracking exhausted but loving every second of the work. Looks like I'm going to run until I burn out.

On one hand I love the work, on the other I am legitimately starting to feel the physical effects of exhaustion and am not feeling to great after a rest.

Re: Alex's Stream Shelter? Safe Spaces? Echo Chambers? DISCU

If anything, there should be a separate thread for coordinating and discussing details of the stream, because at this point, 90% of that thread is the debate, so just let it be there. That thread devolved into a lot of bickering on both sides, It might be wise to give this a fresh start so people c...

Please note not all streams are auto hosting right now, I often host them on my own channel so do double check! twitch.tv/reilaoda for insurance policy.

Re: The voxlunch stream shelter thread

Coming in from the side lines to give input: I agree with Psyclone that Wraith's conduct was very poor, and not as constructive towards discussion as I would like. And essay long posts make for longer and more incoherent posts down the line as people try and respond to each bit. I don't agree with ...

Re: The voxlunch stream shelter thread

I agree with with Psyclone on this. I like a good discussion as much as the next person, but what Wraith was doing did not look like a good discussion. He presumed and accused a lot on his own, even if he didn't do the specific thing of calling anyone a troll. And before anyone assumes that I'm say...

None as far as I am aware of. I'm pretty sure our misunderstanding was hammered out so quickly no one cared to report it. Certainly didn't bug me enough to report anything.
