Honestly kind of bracing for Capsaicin Canine to go full-on, out-in-the-open RWNJ and then take the Nazi Shitbird "meanies on Twitter forced me to" route. I really hope I'm wrong, but at this point, I'm sort of resigned to it.
I'm so tired of it. Particularly from a dude I've watched for a long time and KNOW that he could be better than that. But then, I guess I thought the same thing about the raccoon, and look how that ended up.
Maybe I'm just stupid for believing the best in all the worst people. Maybe all the derision about me being completely self-defeating is right. Maybe there is no innate human goodness and some people really are just irredeemably awful. That just kind of makes me hate life.
What's the point of it? You try to believe in people, you don't give up on them, you set the best example you can for them, and it just ends with them throwing it all back in your face and everyone else shitting on you for trying.
No good deed goes unpunished, as the song goes.

Hey folks. Time to have a little (possibly uncomfortable) conversation about sadposting in group chats. This is prompted by *numerous* people in *several* of the group chats I admin; if you're going to ask "Is this directed at me?" - if it applies to you, it's directed at you.
First of all, let's talk about what "sadposting" actually is. Telling the chat that you're having a rough day, in and of itself, isn't sadposting. Sadposting is not a single post, but rather a *pattern* of behavior in some ways and a mindset of posting in others.
For the purposes of what I'm describing, when I say "sadposting," I'm talking about two things: one, repeated posting of how miserable/sick/depressed/unwell you are. You post it once, then when no one answers, you wait until the chat is actually active again, then post it again.

Last two RTs: I am really glad that that people are starting to think critically about this kind of thing. I'm always wary when someone starts complaining incessantly about how horrible "callout culture" is, but at the same time, there are a LOT of irresponsible callouts.
And the reason this is a problem is because there's no accountability. If someone makes a callout and you're like, "Hey, whoa, back up a sec," you're an "apologist," insta-blocked, added to blocklists, etc.

That's not how it should be.
If someone I follow is engaging in something especially heinous, then yes, sure, I do want to know about it. But the threshold for "heinous" should be a LOT higher than "they said something mean on the internet once."
