H3 is saying their podcast got shut down on YouTube and their channel's livestream privilege revoked for talking about Jones.

Hopefully it was just the AI being absolute shit again, and Alex Jones isn't like Voldemort now.

These websites aren’t as untocheable as you guys are making them out to be. I wouldn’t be surprised if the large majority of content creators aren’t at least very irritated with YT these days.
I know a bunch of fairly large creators that are particularly annoyed with YT. It's just that there is no viable alternative platform for most of them besides maybe twitch, and that's only for the gamers or artists I watch. Most creators really don't have any other place to go. No where else has the sheer amount of viewers YT can provide.

leave YouTube to their devices and then maybe everybody will move to twitch and YT can die.
Normies aren't going to stop using YouTube, and it's normies that ultimately dictate what platforms are the most prominent and where the majority of content creators are going to be.

Alex Jones is free to make his own website and upload videos there. I'm sure his cult will go watch him.
Okay? I'm not taking about Jones anymore.

I'm talking about alternative platforms becoming viable for large creators. Until your average person starts using them, most creators will continue to use mainstream sites like YouTube. I wouldn't expect people to uproot their followers by moving to another platform and risk losing a huge number of them for the sake of using a more free and open platform.

As long as he did nothing illegal then I have more respect for any platform that doesn't ban him or Infowars. I may not care for Alex Jones but I do like when any site upholds the values of freedom of expression even though they aren't legally required to.

The seemingly coordinated banning seems like a bad idea, regardless, as it just gives the guy more reason to claim the establishment is oppressing him and his supporters.

I like to see people on the fringes pulled closer to the center, not forced further into the fringe. If it means having to deal with a partisan conspiratorial cook like Jones then so be it.
He openly bullshits though and calls his network a genuine news outlet, if he labelled himself as a comedy actor it would be fine.
I may not agree with his practices but, regardless, I still value freedom of expression over protecting people from his ideas. People should be treated with the kind of basic respect that allows them to decide for themselves what ideas they choose to listen to and believe. I would never presume to say that, because I disagree with Alex Jones, other people should't be allowed to listen to what he says.
People should absolutely be protected from propaganda designed to harm the fabric of society.
I'm not willing to give up my right or anyone else's right to listen to controversial or offensive ideas for the sake of ideological stability in society. Sounds like a dystopian nanny state just waiting to happen.

Some vendor accidentally sent me 99% pure CBD isolate instead of the 24% extract I ordered a few months ago. It had a rather mild calming effect, but kratom seems to still be more effective for me.

I like DKS2's gameplay about the same as 1's (except maybe the stamina cost of rolling) but the level design of 1 will always be the best.

I don't really give a shit about Gunn's edgelord tweets from years ago. I do despise when corporations or individuals bend the knee to outrage mobs, and really wish more would just tell the mob to basically fuck off. Although, I definitely wouldn't expect Disney to do it.

I don't come to any conclusions. I have experienced a few weird things.

I've seen multiple UFOs that weren't like anything you would expect to see moving in the sky. I'm not gonna claim it was E.T. but I can at least say it wasn't anything normal. Even if it was some kind of secret military craft, it's still wild to have witnessed.

I've also seen something kind of like a wisp with a friend. Sort of misty white faintly glowing nebulous mass that swept though the  air just above the ground. It moved through his neighborhood appearing and disappearing for a few minutes as we watched it. Was it a ghost/spirit? Who knows. I can only say I have no explanation for what I saw and neither does my friend.

I'mma be real with you chief, I just now learned what all that was about. Been playing this game for years and never picked up on this storyline.
that's funny

you never wondered why the pardoner let you know he was "drenched in sin"?
Nah, always knew he was a dick cause he rode out when they needed him, just never knew the end to her quest line. Always figured she just fucked off after you save her.
She's goes hollow in the duke's archives prison if you manage to save her from Petrus.
lmao wtf

so she's just fucked no matter what you do
tbh I think most npcs with quest lines go hollow in the end.

The US government needs to stop losing track of trillions of dollars in defense spending before we can start dishing out a UBI.

Shit should be making national headlines on every news network and yet hardly anyone in the media is talking about it.

About a day's worth of work, still a wip.  But I'm not sure why people say faces are so hard, this is my first face sculpt ever since I missed out on it in college



Was this done from scratch? The anatomy is pretty good. Especially for a first attempt.

The only thing I've gotten out of gold since last summer is 2-3 free games every month.
