Thank you EsoQuest and Laura, for your objectivity- something some here seem to lack.EsoQuest said:I don't think "Ubermensch" is necessarily indicative of racism. It might just indicate admiration for Nietzsche. Also, if we notice, the person with the same call name but using a small u with the two dots, is more of a stickler for details regarding the term (it takes a slight extra effort to get those two dots over the u), and the writing style is very very different.
In my opinion, objectivity means analyzing the facts before coming to conclusions, especially before speaking as if those as yet indeterminate conclusions are fact. This objectivity is what separates sincere discernment from the very tactics this forum is against.
Objectively speaking, Ubermensch has so far asked a valid question, and has not violated any of the rules of the forum. His feedback also seems rational to me. I am not saying it is wrong to be wary, or even to check out his background on other sites. It is, furthermore, not wrong to ask him to clarify to those who are suspicious of the call name, (which given the popularized associations of Nietzsche with Naziism, is not a "correct" call name to use).
I beg to differ. "Finding a user name almost identical to yours, he concluded they were your posts." His conclusion was based on the assumption that my newly created alias for the SotT forum is the same/similar to other forums that I frequent. Which, I'm sorry to your dismay- is not an accurate assumption.anart said:Hmmm, interesting. Actually, Ubermensch, that is not 'quite an assumption". Using information you provided, Salleles went to the forums you mentioned to look up what you might have posted. Finding a user name almost identical to yours, he concluded they were your posts. On further inspection, another user name on that forum exactly matched your user name here, but there were zero posts attributed to it. Therefore, one again is directed to the first username that is almost identical to yours, in order to see your posts.
And most importantly, if you (salleles) or anyone else (anart) are going to accuse me for saying such derogatory statements as this:
You better make sure you're right.salleles said:let me just say, i hope i live to see the day that all muslims of african/mid-east decent are herded up like a bunch of cattle, put into cages, and deported from civilized whtie countries to madagascar or tasmania
no, sorry dumbfuck, but its your rejected, failed attitude of 'tolerence' and 'diversity' that is getting us this. they hate us for our support for israel, not because we are racist towards them you -flicking- moron.
i enjoy it when marxist liberals are hurt in attacks, they bring it upon themselves and they deserve it. they're willing to risk their lives to uphold diversity. I'm not.
I would agree that this assumption would not be "quite an assumption at all" if the postings in SotT and digg.com are similar in demeanor or topic; but it seems quite the contrary. So, will I provide my other alias for digg.com and others to prove that I am innocent? No, I will not. I do not believe that I am obligated to do such a thing, especially since I have been falsely accused for something I would never say or do.
This is my first post at SotT and I merely asked one simple question: How Will Net Neutrality Effect SotT?
If this is SotT staff and user's idea of a warm welcome, then I feel right at home.
I am simply appalled.
