I'm sorry you feel that I'm not thoughtful but I don't like being dismissed or disrespected.

Aaron Swartz considered me quite the thoughtful person. You see, I am the Founder & Intellectual Property Representative of Anonymous Operation Blackout (and a dozen others). Remember SOPA? I did that.

You're welcome.

That's who I am. Let's get back to talking who you are. Would you like me to continue systematically dismantling your false accusation of thoughtlessness? I could run circles around you all day.

Aaron said it best - I'm smarter than you and because I'm smarter than you, I'm better than you and you have to listen to me.

TL;DR - Your artlessness has sounded your death knell.

What a great way of introducing yourself to the community - a copypasta-worthy boasting rant about your own intelligence. You might as well just start over.

"Lol" isn't a thoughtful response. Care to try that again, hypocrite?

Go somewhere else. You wouldn't like Hubski, and Hubski wouldn't like your shitty attitude.

You can moderate your experience here. If you find that someone is intentionally hyperbolic you can filter, hush or mute them. See here:

I hope this helps your experience here. Also, I've been on Hubski for nearly 5 years and only recently had I heard the term SJW if that gives you a sense of the community here. You are right, it's not a place where we "choose sides and battle," it's a place where we have discussions.

Oh, I love that. Loving the self-moderation tools.

Why, because hubski is for SJWs?

More like people who don't feel the need to put up with the kind of bullshit you're spewing.

Look, there are some SJWs, true, and they might or might not be the majority, but you don't have to be one to use Hubski. Don't let a few rude comments ruin the whole experience for you.

Your identity is irrelevant to the comments that you make. You alone are accountable for your words and actions, and be judged on each independently, not in relation to your previous achievements.

Who the hell cares what you've achieved if all your comments are as condescending as this one? It just reeks of narcissistic bullshit and doesn't leave a good taste in anybody's mouth. No, you're not welcome. To be frank I don't give a shit what you've done if all you do is talk down to people assuming yourself to be some kind of internet deity. Mark Zuckerberg might have done a great deal to foster the growth of social networking, but do people really care for the hypocritical bullshit that comes out of his mouth? That's you.

Now rinse your mouth and start over.

Edit: Also, you'd be sorely mistaken if you feel respect is given because you've done something worthwhile. Every little bit of respect is earned, and all that sum can be easily destroyed in the flash of a second if you don't respect your audience. If you're here because of Reddit, just look at it - perfect example.

that's a nice take on the bin laden copy pasta, and you sound like /r/iamverysmart material, kudos.

arkbg1  ·  1263 days ago  ·  link  ·  

Idk "bin laden copy pasta" nor /r/Iamverysmart

Here we go...

Come on, we've had better trolls. This is just poor craftsmanship.

Is this you, or are you just throwing out copypasta?
