Re: 1432: "The Sake of Argument"

Complete and utter bullshit. Try making 322's point in a forum with a lot of junior devs, gamers and their assorted hangers-on, say Slashdot for example. And watch how fast you get called an meaniehead. It's not about behaviour. It is about having an opinion. A specific one in fact: "Dude, sex...

Re: 1432: "The Sake of Argument"

Of those two, 322 is not really SJW-like. Why? Because the whole "meaniehead" appellation isn't merely having an opinion that happens to match up with a given list...it's a description of behavior. Complete and utter bullshit. Try making 322's point in a forum with a lot of junior devs, g...

Re: 1432: "The Sake of Argument

Is it just me, or is Randall starting to exhibit the symptoms of the SJW-plague? I don't want XKCD to go in the direction of Sinfest... It is just you . Randall has always taken a stand against at least certain forms of bigotry. If you don't want Randall to go in a direction he's been travelling fo...

Re: 1049: "Bookshelf"

That's a very Objectivist point right there. May I simply suggest you read Atlas Shrugged and see for yourself? Incidentally, Ayn Rand was not, contra to common misunderstanding, primarily an advocate of capitalism. I have a book of essays by her and some of her compatriots ("Capitalism, the U...

Re: 1027: "Pickup Artist"

If your girlfriend of 4 years got a haircut that you didn't like, is it inherently wrong to tell her that she looks beautiful?

Re: 1027: "Pickup Artist"

ddxxdd Has objected many times to being compared to a cold-caller. Yet has anyone ever noticed that his posts are drenched in the language of a hard-seller? He's talking about 'closing the sale', and his earlier posts had a complete checklist of the stages of the PUA 'pitch'. I've been caught by Mul...
