  2. Well, the UK's screwed...

    Here, watch the UK "police" in action. This is what got Lauren Southern banned from the UK... for what basically amounts to blasphemy against Islam. Islam is a religion of peace... Peace through tyranny.

    "Hate crime" is something that needs to be abolished. The very concept of something being a hate crime is redundant. If you attack someone because of who they are, that's a crime plain and simple. If you're promoting violence against people, that's a crime. It doesn't have to be elevated to another special level of crime because they're different to you. It's divisive bullshit used by the supposedly anti-racist (though, ironically, more racist) left to protect their favourite interest group for that year. It also doesn't help that what constitutes "hate" is now loose and entirely dependent on who's doing the defining. Mark Meechan got done for being offensive, and that's considered a hate crime just because a group they don't see him as being the same as might get upset. So loose that the powers that be can use it to silence criticism of particular groups whenever they want (the actions of Jews in Palestine, the grooming gangs of Muslims in Britain, the stabbings/acid attacks of predominantly black/mixed race youths in London, etc). Control of language and expression is not the solution to preventing past mistakes.

    There is no such thing as "hate speech", because you can boil down "hate speech" to "things I don't like to hear". The problem with hate speech legislation is that it allows the government to abuse said legislation because there's little difference between hate speech legislation and blasphemy laws in practice. I mean... this is a thing because of the abuse of power from the UK government: The UK government forced out two men and a woman because they are "wrong thinkers". And before anyone asks, Lauren Southern is officially recognized as male in Canada, and he's often misgendered as female. The sad thing is that the UK government read 1984, and then used it as a guideline for how to run a government. ----- And then there's the defendant's response, and a good summary of why this case is so critical for the UK:

    What perpetuates the sexual grooming of young women and girls in Telford or Rotherham is that people are afraid to speak up about it for fear of being labelled a racist, with jail time a possibility. Remember that the people who define hate crimes are the people in power. That can always flip and then those who want to defend minorities could be thrown in jail. Forcing people to be silent will not stop how they think. Letting it be talked about and denounced with full public debate is far better than shutting people up. I wholeheartedly disagree with your position. It will be a sad day when I cannot due to laws against freedom of speech.

    The hallmark of a free society is that I may totally disapprove of what you say, but I'll defend your right to say it until I die.
  9. Well, the UK's screwed...

    No. If stirred, hatred spills out of society with surprising intensity. 50k+ "PATRIOTS" marching under pseudo-Nazi banners in bloody Poland of all places. Revival of fascism in Italy, and general spread of hatred and xenophobia - I do hope you all defenders of free speech remember the hecatomb it led to the last time. Jews. Muslims, Blacks, immigrants, aliens - matters not. Any target is good. Preferably one that virtually does not exist. (Like the 42 refugees in Poland, or its 3000 Jews) Let us split the society, induce the rise of hatred, bad blood, fear, negative emotions - and ride the wave!!! Onward! To Victory! We Will Win! Seig Heil! Too much Political Correctness or a few silly rulings is a puny price to pay if it stops this massacre. My post from two years ago, just after Populists came to power in Poland;
  10. Well, the UK's screwed...

    Hate crime laws gotta go. Else it leads to crap like this. And I'm a guy who thinks anti-Jew stuff IS offensive. (It also leads to girls being groomed as sex slaves because you dare not mention it is Islamic men doing it for fear of being accused of a hate crime.)
  11. Well, the UK's screwed...

    Just a quick one, this was in Scotland, which is part of the UK, but not England. But on the topic, yes, this was fucking insane. What angers me the most was what the "judge" in this case said about why he convicted him of a hate crime. "In my view it is a reasonable conclusion that the video is grossly offensive." "The accused knew that the material was offensive and knew why it was offensive." "Despite that the accused made a video containing anti-Semitic content and he would have known it was grossly offensive to many Jewish people." It's a hate crime because it was OFFENSIVE?! Do me a fucking favour. Ooh better not upset the Jews, that would be anti-Semitic! Better not ever mention Nazis, because someone Jewish might be offended! You made a dog do a salute? Well, I guess you hate Jews! And since when has people being offended been considered a valued argument for what constitutes a hate crime? That's becoming a broad fucking definition now, where anything and everything is a "hate crime" if someone from a different group to you gets upset by it. How about we actually wait to find out just how many people WERE offended by a pug saluting, and then just tells those people to fuck off? What has their feeling of offence got to do with controlling reality? If we're talking offensive, how about the act of Jews bombing the shit out of Palestinians and taking over more and more land they don't own? That's pretty offensive both physically and metaphysically. That's also anti-Semitic, since Palestinians are also Semites. But nooooo it's only for when you might upset a few Jews (and I mean just a few, there's only about 6,000 in Scotland to begin with). No, can't even mention that, because it's anti-Semitic to do so. Fuck the UK. It's a stinking mass of leftist, spineless, self-entitled cunts, and it deserves to sink into the sea.
  12. Well, the UK's screwed...

    There are idiots everywhere - in a Polish forest some celebrated Hitler's birthday. Obviously wiping off a quarter of Poland's population will get you that. The problem becomes serious when morons elect their representative to rule their country. If you live in such a shit-hole country I advise you to get rich quick and think about Switzerland or Norway as emigration targets. I'll give Poland a two years stay of execution. (Until next general election). P.S. Freedom of speech for Elf-haters or Satan worshipers - sure. Go ahead. Hitler and ISIS worship? Not so funny, in my view.
  13. Well, the UK's screwed...

    With freedom of speech, you need to protect the extremes, the assholes, and the bigots... or the average folk do not have freedom of speech. Based off of what's going on with Count Dankula... the UK is completely screwed. You can read about this https://reason.com/blog/2018/03/20/count-dankula-meechan-hate-speech-nazi . The more stuff I see about how screwed up the UK is, the more I'm convinced that England is now an Islamic colony, and no longer the proud kingdom that has survived for more than a millennia that also birthed the United States. A kingdom felled by identity politics. Hopefully y'all in the UK can either your country fixed, or get out before it all goes to hell.

    Any thoughts ? I waited until the first patch so I didn't run into some of the bugs that existed the first week (like the map being off) Haven't quested there yet other than the run to the King Thranduil palace

    since photobucket no longer allows remote loading of images, testing out if new site works as see lots of old posts with dead photo links. Mirkwood at night is kinda impressive around Dol Guldur areas: so that works, nice to have a freeloading photo site that works /end test post

    I had to laugh at that last pic
  23. Can't even Access LOTRO Website - Help Please!

    Adding my 2 cents. For a series of situations I use to have 2 ADSL providers. After switching to the second one I suddenly wasn't able to load LOTRO (loader stuck on pre-req) and neither reach the lotro.com website from any of my devices in the network. This, after reading different posts, let me come to the the conclusion that the public IP I was assigned was blocked. I then shut off the router and turned it on after 30 seconds. Now I'm connected with a new IP and everything works again.

  26. Bullroarer Update 22 (Build #1)

    Build #2 was released today. we now have a region map and a revised Rhovanion map. Plus, there are folk queuing for the privy in Lake-town
  27. Bullroarer Update 22 (Build #1)

    Thanks for all the screenshots, the area looks beautiful. I never bought Mordor, I knew it would be depressing as all get out, so I wonder if having Mordor is a requirement to be able to access the new zone?
  28. Bullroarer Update 22 (Build #1)

    I only had time to check out the map and didn't do any "digging" to find out about new gear. I suspect more information about such things will be in the next test build.
  29. Bullroarer Update 22 (Build #1)

    Thanks MP ! SSG has done a great job with Lake-town, gotta give credit to them. I echo Woeg's thoughts and wonder if this will be more of a light-gear grind / more about the casual experience + cosmetics, whereas Mordor was more keyed for the hardcore.
