I look back on this post, which FD started years ago, and see the same characters yelling their same prejudices and feel somewhat happy that I chose to stop arguing with idiots.
When FD first posted his warnings about this he was accused of being alarmist, lying, exaggerating etc.
He was not, he was pretty much spot on the money.
Yet still we have the same closed minded people who initially challenged his assertions as wrong, seeking to justify why they may have been a bit right technically, but are still wrong morally, because it's racist, or insensitive or sexist, WHATEVER!
It is weird living in a post fact world, where opinions are all so many care about.
It seems if you really, really are passionate about something, and you think you are really really good, then facts don't matter.
Maybe facts are just a quasi social/cultural concept?

I did notice none who howled down FD's original post from 2017, actually acknowledged their mistake.
It seems these people are not nearly as "big" as they pretend to be.

Maybe try being a little less certain about stuff, in the end I promise you will look smarter.
Be kind to each other as much as you can muster.
Adios.


Not that he was here much at all but it seems yet another one bites the dust.

Looks like he was talking about people like you, Mothra, Gregg and JS.

He's not just talking about Ayers Rock is he? He is talking about a certain kind of people.

Yer barking up the wrong tree Setanta.  Mozzaok is specifically referring to Uluru and also I have to say a misguided belief that Effendi is all knowing.

Of course. Arabs for the Levant, Tasmania for the Jews and no fact will change your mind because "It seems if you really, really are passionate about something, and you think you are really really good, then facts don't matter."

Cute.  Mozzaok never expressed any disagreement with that.  Gawd you are a dick. (That's a fact.)

Fact is, another GMod is gone, Mozzaok joining a growing list, and don't try to lay that at my feet.
