"Can't say that I agree with their take on the sub...."

The deal is, unlike their Twitter accounts or the book or the podcast itself, they can't control what is written about them in a forum with their name. Fandom is a funny thing, and I think they are scared of mass fame. The other thing was (according to YouTuber Vaush, who was not a fan of r/chapotraphouse), was that r/cumtown was shot through with Nazis because they loved the edgy jokes but they didn't get why they were being made. (Vaush's comments here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XwEnfmS91ME )

Yeah r/cumtown actually sucked,
and r/cth was sometimes overly critical of the podcast, but mostly it was pretty reasonable

I don't think this place will like vaush probably

I watch some of what he does and it takes a lot of patience to listen to him argue with Destiny or TERF randos or whatever because I know he's definitely not going to get his debating partners to change their ideas overnight (and some of these people are two inches from becoming Klansmen). I prefer his shorter commentary videos; most of them are about extremely online stuff and he seems to dig deeper due to background knowledge.

If you're debating someone on a public forum you aren't necessarily trying to change their mind. Often you're trying to change the minds of people watching or reading along but not participating.

Something like 90% of social media users don't actually post or comment; they just read. If you're in a space with decent visibility you want to put out a good take for them, even if the chud you're arguing with is a lost cause.

Pinned. I usually leave this to /u/celebratedrecluse as they know the material better. I mostly just hunt for spam and trolls. :)

I got 10 min into the episode, heard them talking about all of the dumb low stakes capers the Entourage folks like Turtle got into, remembered how little I liked Entourage, and turned it off. I hope I didn’t miss anything, but I couldn’t bear the idea of wasting a hour of my life contemplating that dumb show

The entourage part doesn't take that long, like 15 minutes at most
