Nah defasher was my real self. I couldn't be myself as ziq because the techno fetishists and collectivists kept freaking out that an admin has non conforming ideas, and they kept quitting the site in rage over it. So I made defasher to speak my mind and tried to tone my ideas way down while using the ziq account. The only difference is I used British slang, which wasn't hard because I lived in the UK for a few years.

Maybe the contrast between old ziq and defasher made me think defasher was an edgier, primmie ziq. Rereading defasher's comments makes it super obvious you're the same person lol.

I've been trying to use the word "sucked" or "that sucks" and whatnot less lately because it seems inherently homophobic I've come to realize.

Good insults are hard

Yea they are. I find that in english most of the insults revolve around sex, and that's one of the biggest problems these days. People's view on sex is really messed up as it is, and stuff like homophobia coded in our expressions of dismay isn't helping that. This is a really subtle one though, and even after realizing all the homophobia in this culture I oversaw it.

My replacement for "crazy" lately has been "ridiculous". And I've been trying weed out these words.

I've been personally sticking to the feces related ones. Everyone shits, and while some may like it, most people want to get rid of their shit and they just don't like to be around it in general. So I like saying that's shitty.

But I'm sure there are ways to be more creative than that...
