Oh, is this why this is labeled as "twitter thread" above the shoutbox? Pog.

Right, here's a thought:

Why is it against chess rules to put your own king in check? That's so dumb! You'd think that if a player fucks up and fumbles their own king, that's their loss, right? No need to make a rule to prevent someone from making a bad move. Like, imagine if in a real battle someone makes a huge mistake, but instead of taking the victory, their enemy is just like "no, that's too easy, I'll just keep dancing around you until you're trapped". It would never happen! Chess is such a stupid game, I hate it.

extremely fucking LOL at the batshit loony running fxtwitter revealing that they literally go through people's embeds just to... own pedophiles by reporting lolicon?? children and anyone under the age of 40 should not be allowed on the internet unless they're actually Normal.

these people would literally break the law if it meant owning an anime pedophile

sorry for getting real but This is why i hate twitter people so much, they try to make everything a fucking political statement or moral obligation and, while im trying not to sound like some douchebag who's constantly going like "wow nice job respecting people's genders, does virtue signaling tire u much????????????? 8-) 8-) 8-) 8-) 8-) 8-) ", im just so fucking tired of these... unhinged, socially inept nerds, trying to behave like adults when they're nothing but overgrown children not using their indoor voice.

Absolute Lunacy

anyway torneko's mystery dungeon is fun

EDIT: clearing up this

like reporting pedophiles is good but i dont want some backseat moderator looking at my porn especially with weird children going around trying to police nsfw art even if it's not like incest/pedo/zoo

i legit feel uncomfortable with this and these people are just accepting it because woo bullying pedophiles

"nothing on the internet is private" maybe that's the issue, janet

Okay. So.

First off, one would assume tweets from private accounts can't be accessed via twitter's API; if they can be, well, that's a massive problem with twitter itself.

Second,


It's worth stressing this: the tweets were cached, not each individual embed request. The only people she was able to connect them to were the twitter accounts that made them. (At least, not without manually checking who liked/retweeted/replied/etc, but would that have been at all feasible given the volume of tweets she was going through?)

With the above in mind,
- if one knowingly posts or shares porn on a social network with a public account, they're accepting the risks of it being seen by people they might not want seeing it
- the creator wasn't just reporting underage nsfw art but also transphobia and other bigotry
- the creator was reporting these tweets through twitter's reporting system, and made a snapback against someone who objected to it. In return, she was harassed by a hate mob of pedophiles, transphobes, and people jumping to the first two's defense.

Discomfort with being monitored is valid, but please do your due diligence and make sure that's what is actually happening before going on an ableist and infantilizing rant that feeds into a harassment campaign's narrative.

In any case, you don't have to worry about the person behind the replacement, vxtwitter, doing anything like Robin did. I checked the fork myself, it has a commit dedicated to stripping out all code and functionality unrelated to making embeds work and as far as I can tell from from the changes it did exactly that.

3) im sorry for being ableist, mea culpa
4) it may be different in god's america but i've been traumatized too many times from seeing people digging through dirty laundry to find The Ebin Cringe, to trust literally ANYONE ON TWITTER to do any sort of moderating. i literally heard of like. instance admins on mastodon reading through dms of people in their instance. and i've had people on twitter literally tell me that like "oh twitter admins can also do that, it's not like they're private". well that's the big fucking issue timothy, twitter admins at least aren't fucking 21 year old fandom kids.

forgive me for being too traumatized to feel comfortable about this and fuck off

im not even defending that she got harassed. like she messed up, she was being fucking embarrassing, but the anime pedophiles are even worse.

now leave me alone for fucks sake

I forget whether I've mentioned this stuff before, so let me make a few things clear about myself:

- I'm neurodivergent
- I'm 28, just a year older than Robin, and there's at least one other thing in her situation that hits way too close to home
- I have zero sense of loyalty to, or pride in, the hypercapitalist hellhole I was born in and especially the state I'm stuck in

so forgive me for not expertly parsing every part of your initial post (I had no clue whether you knew about Robin being bullied but you were certainly ragging on her) and managing the tone in my reply like a robot after you opened with insulting and condescending garbage like
KobaBeach wrote: children and anyone under the age of 40 should not be allowed on the internet unless they're actually Normal.
and
and, while im trying not to sound like some douchebag who's constantly going like "wow nice job respecting people's genders, does virtue signaling tire u much????????????? 8-) 8-) 8-) 8-) 8-) 8-) ", im just so fucking tired of these... unhinged, socially inept nerds, trying to behave like adults when they're nothing but overgrown children not using their indoor voice.
and then after I start writing you add a clarifying edit with
and these people are just accepting it because woo bullying pedophiles
"nothing on the internet is private" maybe that's the issue, janet
and then you just make another shitpost like nothing happened!

There's a hundred more things I want to say about your reply, but I've spent so long figuring out how to articulate what I've already written that it's now 2 AM so I'll just leave it at just this: you're conflating cringe culture and leaking DMs to a trans woman reporting public transphobia, and you proceed to call that "mess[ing] up" and "being fucking embarrassing".

After having a lengthy chat with Koba, they've been pretty panicky as a result of receiving misinformation and acting on that, and the potential threat of a dogpile after apologising for such. There is a sincere fear of coming back to this channel to apologise, and so, with their permission, I'd like to bring their apology here on their behalf. They were misinformed, they spoke from a point of view they no longer agree with, they were under the impression that this was the kind of person who, on seeing someone posting any form of adult material, they'd send in their merry band of attack dogs.

Now they've taken a step back and looked at things, and they regret it to the point of paralysing fear of this conflict being impossible to resolve, even if they apologise. That said, they wanna apologise and move on. Can we do that?

I should be the one apologizing. Koba already gave a sincere apology for the ableism, but I was too angry to see that and just took the whole post as one big indignant "sorry not sorry" based on everything after the mea culpa. I wanted them to understand why I was hurt and angry, why that response felt like a slap in the face and that I wasn't just coming from a place of detached moral policing, and I proceeded to express that in the worst way possible.

From Koba's perspective, they're walking on eggshells with the risk of me and Tiki taking every joke they say too seriously and getting on their case, and now when they vent about genuine fears of theirs I completely go off on them and give them no room to breathe. For how much I complained about infantilization, I was acting like a petulant child myself.

So, I'm sorry, Koba. And it's completely understandable if you don't accept this apology. I'll give you however much space you need, for however long you need. And apologies to you too, helucard, for escalating things to the point where you needed to get involved.

I don't know how to end this post, so I'll just... I'll go now.

Please stop apologizing, it was my fault.

What I got from my friend (who I'm not naming here because I don't want people attacking him on twitter, and he wants to keep his sex life separate) was:
I was about to be like "use fxtwitter", but the little shit that made the fxtwitter thing admitted to collecting data and reporting whatever they thought was "bad"

Which, I mean, I don't feel like I've been had or anything, because 1) I didn't share anything illegal, and 2) I forced the smarmy little ass to look at a fuck ton of macro cocks and feet
And it worried me because, there have been several cases of like early 20-something year olds and children actively attacking nsfw artists over porn despite them not being exactly like incest/pedo/zoo. And I got really worried that something I might have accidentally caused a nsfw artist that I linked porn of, despite me being into older men and generally less creepier kinks, to be reported and possibly banned.

And that's why even with the best of excuses, I can never trust people reading through a curated list of people's search history to report anime pedophiles and racism. You never know 100% if the person doing it is like. Thinking rationally or going off a self-imposed or friend-imposed list of moral codes.

I don't want to sound like one of those "bluuuuhhhh those antiiiiis they don't let me ship gregory and freddyyyyy" fuckwads, but there have been instances of people going like "Shiro x Keith is pedophilic, because Keith is 18 and Shiro's like 25 and if you ship this you are a Literal Pedophile" and people being actively attacked over it during The Voltron Era.

It's why I mentioned like, children multiple times. I legit believed this was a 19 year old computer whiz with too much of a power trip, especially with the name that seemed super close to "Steven Universe", not a 27 year old woman. Especially now, with the whole anti-porn laws rising I literally got especially upset, because it felt like yet another punch to the gut to sex workers and artists.

A service I desperately need because, while my libido isn't that high anymore (blame my meds, I don't know if I should ask to lower my dose before removing them), I use homoerotic aesthetics (mostly mlm) as a way to cope with depression and suicidal ideation. Call it addiction to porn, but if I don't see men celebrating their homosexuality or gay side of bisexuality (replace sexuality with romanticism when needed), I literally go insane. I have no gay people around me irl.

So yeah I'm sorry for going ham but, I've literally paid witness to so many hot takes wrt sexuality and whatnot on twitter, usually from children who shouldn't even be around that, or even just manchildren. That I'm just traumatized at this point and, I legit have a fear of children and teenagers, partially due to trauma from being bullied as a child.

anyway here's a good song from a bad game because lord help me if i don't shitpost

also i found the following in a shiren 5 review on steam and this is why we need to make anime fans feel oppressed
Thankfully, a remake of that original SNES title for DS, with many changes to the game though none to drastic, did eventually reach our filthy Western hands. Then, only a few years later, a game for the Wii also reached out to us who are unworthy. Naturally, neither did that well, as they were both introduced fairly late into their consoles lifespans, and did come with any sort of marketing. Not only that, but us filthy western pigs are also not very favorable to roguelikes, not willing to accept the honorable challenge that comes with it.
