What is with this new trend on devrant where assholes feel like telling others how they should live, or what they should like or not?

Like, it's a good thing most of these assholes never get anywhere in their lives or God forbid, Handmade's Tale wouldn't just be a fantasy tv show.

*an hour later* Just figured I should practice ignoring people more often.

    I don't think this is something I've witnessed. Which probably means one of two things - I've just overlooked the assholes, or I am one of the assholes.

    @AlmondSauce can't confirm you being an asshole. Dunno about the other either.

    Are you thinking about all the people trying to force either a "OS or Programming language" on other? or am i totally off?

    @Frederick that's just one form of it.

    @NoMad Well, the best solution to that, is simply to ignore them.

    Yall better come with an actual example (gladly in the form of a link or something)

    @inaba don't tell me what to do. Don't order around. You don't pay me, and neither you are entitled to be entertained by me or to be tolerated by me or to even receive an answer from me.
    Don't be an asshole.

    And I'm sorry if I'm being harsh, but this has been building up. Like, this level of feeling entitled is just beyond me!

    Also assumers (those who assume things, god only knows from where), there are many of theme

    @rantsauce I'll just go ahead and assume that you assume that I'll be assuming this. 😁
  • 1
    So how should I live and what to like ?
    Any universal assumptions ?

    @vane nah. Just go ahead you'll figure it out.

    @NoMad Don’t tell me how to live my life.
    😂

    @vane alright. I'm not gonna say "Do as you wish" 😜

    This is normal in all groups and aspects of life. Doesn't mean anything and definitely doesn't lead to handmaid's tale kind if distopia. When I see someone I disagree with and I have nothing constructive to add I just scroll away. :shrug:

    @Hazarth good attitude. Keep scrolling...

    🤔not sure if I'm the asshole or the asshole observer. Now I'm questioning my life. God dammit @NoMad

    @rendezvous in that case, guess I'll be someone's asshole then.
  • 0
    @rendezvous not all of us actively "try" to be an asshole tho. Plus some of us even actually try to not judge others or their way of life as long as it is not harming anybody.

    I’d also add to never underestimate the sometimes terrifying amount of communication that is lost in digital text. All kinds of styles of speaking, tone, accent and emotion representing in one form, with only emojis for backup. And some people think all emojis are assholes.

    @rickh or does it (digital text) help remove the manipulation and let's us hear what the words say rather than what the person says? 🤔
  • 2
    I am not sure how easily we could separate the words from the person who spoke them. I guess they can become more loosely coupled, but words are never spoken without intention, without background and context, without feeling and agenda. Not knowing those things leaves the words on an island of less known variables...

    @NoMad How about you start following your own advice about not being an asshole then? Because to someone like me who hasn't really noticed what you're talking about, you're essentially spreading rumors or whatever, and you know, that's not cool dude.
  • 1
    @inaba "because to me" is also a second showcase. With "Me" being the centerpiece of all norms and judgements.
  • 2
    @NoMad funnily enough you're being a huge asshole right now
  • 0
    @fuck2code that's your opinion. And I didn't ask for it.
  • 2
    @NoMad and I didn't ask for this response. I can play this game very well. Also keep in mind you're posting on a public forum. If you don't want criticism write in your journal
  • 0
    @fuck2code sure. I also think you're a jerk and an asshole.
    It takes two to tango, and you're not good at dancing. I'll ignore any further responses as it is utterly irrelevant to the topic of this post and rather seems like you're just dying to defend your friend.

    Y'all see what I'm saying? They can't let a sister rant. It's all "I will tell you what to do, how to feel, and you should obey right now" from these people. And they couldn't even stay away from my rant. Just shows how self-centered and obsessed with controlling others they are.

    No, I'm not gonna point fingers. I'll just vaguely rant about it and let you showcase on your own.

    @NoMad when I read “because to me”, I just read it as “someone like me who hasn’t seen what you’ve described. As opposed to someone who believes their worldview is the absolute centre of all truth. Is this just me?

    @rickh in this specific case, I do not agree with your view. Given other context or topic, maybe.

    Why are you so salty?

    @c3ypt1c got tired of being sugar and spice and everything nice 😎

    @rickh I actually wrote "someone like me" in order to imply exactly what you wrote

    Alright. I'm actually done with this thread of argument. Sorry for not responding to any more comments on this, but I will have to become an asshole to point out hypocrisy and that's just not my style.
    Ktnxbye.

    Having been an avid practitioner of self-enquiry for many years, I am all for deconstructing the ‘I’ as much as the next psychonaut. Although I am also inclined to give a fella some room to use it on a dev board. We can all simultaneously dissolve our identities, but this board goes with it. So choose your poison I guess.

    And you should do, too.

    Totally unrelated, but then kinda language-wise related. I miss assholes. :(
