Have you ever used Twitter? People retweet for a lot of reasons, it's not for nothing that "retweets are not endorsements" is standard profile tab boilerplate over there. I've seen that disclaimer on some accounts, but not on most. In particular, JK Rowling does not have such a disclaimer...

Under most circumstances at least, it certainly shouldn't be deemed "racist" just to criticize the actions of any government. The tone, manner, and/or context of a particular criticism might be racist, however. For example, criticism of Israel isn't intrinsically any-Jewish, but can become...

I think married people/people with a partner have more problems, and probably have worse mental health as a result. They always have obligations to each other, pretend to like in-laws, sacrifice privacy, worry about divorce/breakup, sacrifice personal time/space, worry about ugly money matters, wor...

how?? in the guilt by association, jumping silently from theft(crime) to wrongthink, how's that the same, My point was to make an analogy -- NOT to equate, in all particulars, JK Rowling's online behavior with theft. My point was simply that my own and other people's complaints about JK Rowling are...

You don't seem to understand that retweeting entails much, much more than just "association" -- especially when the retweeter is a famous person with millions of followers. I don't understand why this isn't glaringly obvious to you. Do you participate on Twitter or other similar social me...

I mean when there isn't time to check my calendar, it's 'right here, right now'. I do have health issues- chronic fatigue and hypoglycaemia which make it hard to do sudden physical activity. Do the people in your life know about these health issues? If not, maybe you could inform them, so your relu...

I often find people suddenly want me to suddenly do something I'm not sure I want to or even can do, physically. e.g. an extreme physical activity like a long walk or run; go on a long shopping trip in a loud shopping centre; stay up all night. What do you do if you are asked to make a sudden decis...

My partner and I are a self-employed team of programmers. Our main client is a small medical lab, for which we have made, and continue to maintain, a HIPAA-compliant custom electronic medical records system. We use mainly Java (servlets), JSP, and Javascript. I use PHP for simple non-paid work, e.g....

True, but I have no idea where to find people like that, who are comfortable enough to roleplay for/with me. Aren't there plenty of organized fandoms out there? Look online for groups of fans of the characters you mentioned. (Meetup.com might be one place to look. Or just Google "James Bond fa...

Dox will likely dismiss this as just "guilt by association," but the point is that she doesn't just "associate" with these people but also lies about them. "It's totally different when we do it" You don't seem to understand what guilt-by-association is, and is not. For...

I'm poly and there are a ton of these people in that community Since approximately what year? Also I'm wondering if this might be a difference between West Coast and East Coast poly cultures?

I guess that they realize that it is not socially acceptable to talk about "Jewish satellites". So they now blame it all on "demonic satellites".

It's part of the revival of Satanic panic.

More generally, the Christian religious right wing is alive and kicking.
