I am recently single because of my not being a liberal and thus having a "negative" view of everything.

That said, being on the market again after almost 7 years feels really weird.

As someone who isn't autistic, sometimes telling interest is legit difficult. Different people have different ways of expressing it, and acting on something that would be one person's signal of interest with someone else can make for some pretty cringey awkwardness. You also have people who are very plainly interested but deny it or refuse to act on it, probably because of fears based on past history.

Front-end JS is not accessible because it requires that the client both has it enabled and runs it properly. There are many reasons why this would not be the case.

Pure front-end Javascript is bad for accessibility and security. Cool exercise in ability, but the approach is fatally flawed.

You're not going to really improve anyone else's politics when you seem to intentionally misattribute liberal practices to anyone that doesn't adhere to your specific tenets regardless of whether or not they actually partake in those practices. Instead you're just going to look like a stereotype and people are going to close themselves off to you in particular because you are coming across as arguing from bad faith.

If "left unity is a meme" truly then it's not because of failures of tendencies to align, but because some very vocal and rhetorically powerful actors actively want to work against everyone else.

Charlie Brown then goes on to create a hit list for liberal governments, establishing himself as a fiction author whose work hinges on an uncritical acceptance of liberal propaganda, while somehow managing to not be regarded as counter-revolutionary.

Ahh, okay. I actually couldn't tell that it was a trash bag, which probably didn't help. Need coffee.

I think anyone who takes figures and actions out of the Black Book of Communism at face value isn't any stripe of honest leftist, and throwing the baby out with the bathwater isn't useful. They've all done bad shit, but it doesn't invalidate everything they've done. It's just demonstrates that having a central figure lead the revolution is a bad idea.

Feel exactly the same way. I think it's because the "culture" we have here is so fucking manufactured (in addition to toxic as hell) it may as well be described as not having a culture at all.

My anger just steadily grows. I keep a calm exterior because I am unable to express it.

It will also serve the liberals' bullshit "optics" campaign to keep workers from becoming aware of their place in the struggle.

Why would they ever do that? The police and fash are friends if not the same.

I still feel like there has been a toxic obsession with Raddle dying. I feel like as long as people keep mentioning "oh my god THE BETRAYAL" it's feeding into a vicious cycle that doesn't allow anyone to work through shit and move on. u/ziq apologized and stepped away. We had fun with it in f/meta_. Then some of us asked if they could come back in a stripped-down capacity. I thought this was a step in the right direction. Apparently this wasn't enough.

Now I'm reading they've done some of that stuff again. I admit I haven't been paying attention because I come here for the content and relevant discussion rather than the personalities. That said, it's not cool but IMO if this is something that can break the site then our endearment to the site is more fragile than we're willing to let on.

Honestly if I felt like I could be reliable enough in the time aspect I would offer to help pick up the slack of moderating to kick out spam and trolls, because I think everyone emotionally involved in all of this needs to take a break. This is obviously stressing people out and this being a near-daily subject of discussion with little positive movement is preventing people from getting mentally away from it.
