It's clear to me that some people perceive things very differently from how I perceive them - which is fine.

I don't have the patience to wade (!) through this entire thread so I'll just say this, hoping that someone already has:

I don't give a flying fuck what people put in their demos, or in the threads on Pouet (as long as it's not illegal), or on their own sites. I don't care about what constiutes art and what doesn't, or what offends women (or men, or turtles, for that matter) or what whoever feels about the picture in question.

We're talking about a logo that represents the sites and goes on the front-page. OF COURSE not everything imaginable will be allowed here, and no: not even if people vote for it.

After all the hoopla of the open sourcing Pouet-thread, I can't even believe this discussion even exists.

..and havoc wins.

Wishing people dead is the pinnacle of intellectual intercourse.

Yes, wishing someone dead is just trolling and over the line. As I told sigflup on facebook however, the pouet crowd has a tendency to hyperbolics and stupid bravado, but cools down once you meet them at a demoparty and sit down and have a beer, or you find out that you are both best friends with that nice guy from the swedish demoscene. You know who I mean.

Wishing someone dead is normal when people are really bad.

Well. Is there a single thing more attractive than breasts? Besides dicks I mean. :o]

I personally feel more welcomed by a warm handshake and a cold beer, but your mileage may vary :)

if you are referring to my demand for sdw to go hang himself with that "wishing people dead" issue, please put it into context. sdw intervened in discussion about sexism with a extremely racist input that had nothing to do with the original subject. on top of that the content of his input was as hollowman also pointed out more or less copypasted from a swedish net comunity that gathers neo-nazis (or cultural conservative nationalists as they like to call themselves) to concentrate on propaganda distribution on the internet. Sorry but I am allergic to nazis, hence my demand that sdw go hang himself. my demand had nothing to do with the rest of the discussion in this thread so why dont you just stop acting up about it, you know you cant have a intellectual intercourse with a nazi anyway. its all very zZZzz compared to the main topic here.

I was actually referring to metoikos saying something about "all of you idiots dead of cirrhosis" in twenty years. I found that slightly offensive, and apparently missed you asking sdw to go hang himself :) just to clarify.

And yet again Dubmood is at it - there was nothing "nazi" or racist in my post, except when read by his deranged mind, where apparently calling someone a "wine-sipping-leftist-culture-elitist" is some kind of secret formulation that is only used by the evil nazi-overlords that lurk beneath his bed or something.

I'll happily take the badge of "wine-sipping-leftist-culture-elitist" if we can make it whisky-sipping.
added on the 2013-05-20 14:11:36 by nic0 nic0
oh wait there is nothing racist at all in your post? we were having a discussion about sexism and you just felt obliged to share your thoughts on Muslims all of a sudden and at the same time mistaken sexism for separatist-feminism and label everyone not agreeing with you as wine-sipping-leftist-culture-elitists ( a term pretty much used only by far right extremists since even rightwing media thinks that phrase is passé) . you racists are so funny in the way you are self-denying. At least I have the guts to admit my political allegiance while you'll take self denying to the extreme. But lets not hijack this thread with such a discussion shall we? We can create a new thread and name it "I am not a racist but..."

till then ill be gone leftist-whiskey-sippin-while-doing-my-cultural-elitist-stuff whatever that is.
added on the 2013-05-20 14:24:58 by dubmood dubmood
Using a term like "wine-sipping-leftist-culture-elitist" might not make you a racist perse, but it does somewhat imply your opinions are probably shitty and dumb, hth.
added on the 2013-05-20 14:35:10 by okkie okkie
I was going to roll my eyes and move on, but calling out shitty behaviour is exactly what this thread is about. So:

I can't say I entirely agree with Sdw's point of view, but if the point you took from his post was "Muslims are evil" rather than "using the word 'oppression' is over-the-top when there are bigger things going on elsewhere in the world that really warrant the term", then man, you suck at reading comprehension.

If anything the Nazis were sort of fond of Arabs/Muslims. Come on guys, get your facts straight and call him a Zionist or something ;)

Now pardon me, I'm off to work on two demos and run what is now the oldest living party.

Best party invitation ever.

...which, btw, resonates oddly with the thread title / initial synopsis.

i agree the logo is not fitting. my problem with it is that it is NSFW material, hence i support the whole removal thing. but the whole feminism debate that spawned from it, is just pure comedy gold. pouet never lets me down :)

*waits for the next drama*
gasman: There are many forms and levels of oppression, and I claim that women in sweden in many ways are oppressed.
Now, lets just ignore the fact that sdw felt obliged to talk about muslims, call that an unlucky coincidence and turn the timemachine back 25 years or so. Lets imagine a gloom swedish 80s-classroom where someone just called a kid "nigger" and then someone else step up and defend that kid and point out that its a raccist insult.
Then a third person, following Sdw logic would go "Hey, thats not racist, just look at what happend in appartheid south africa, thats racist!!"
Atleast thats what I see in his comment. To defend something by saying that worse things are happening elsewere is really ignorant. to take the oppertunity to go completely oftopic bash people of another religion/nationality in the process, while completely ignoring similar horrible things being done in your own country by white swedish males, is racist. and to add that cliche remarque on leftists that is almost only used by supporters of the swedish national-socialist party, earns you the neo-nazi flag. especially after some light culture-elitist-beer-sipping...

plek: ww2 nazis != neonazis.
