Re: Game event notifications

There is another option for game notifications. Give people an option of linking their discord account to their webdip account...then webdip sends direct messages to users over discord. If the user has the discord app on their phone they get the notifications. What do you think? I actually use some...

Anyone Willing To Take Over My Position Here?

I am currently playing in this game: https://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=244246 but I want to take a break from playing dip games for a while. Since this is anonymous gunboat, I am not sure I can mention publicly which country I am playing but I can say I am in a reasonable position. Anyone wi...

Re: The Charlottesville "Lie" And The Rewriting Of History

Google had a problem until recently that after tragedies/mass shootings/other YouTube would show conspiracy theory videos in the top slots. Would you say it is OK for Google to downrank the conspiracy theorists?

Re: The Charlottesville "Lie" And The Rewriting Of History

You are right. Covington was horrible too. Many people jumped the gun and made assumptions about what happened with incomplete information and they should absolutely be castigated for it. Do you think they deliberately lied though? After more information came out I had understood all the main player...

This is what he said Saturday which is what he was criticised for by Republicans, Democrats and the media for not explicitly calling out the alt-right rally straight away: "We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry, and violence on many sides—on many sides....

The Charlottesville "Lie" And The Rewriting Of History

A few days ago, I saw a PragerU video called the Charlottesville "Lie" claiming that President Trump made it very clear from the outset that he wasn't saying neo-Nazis were "very fine people", that the evil "mainstream media" made it up: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NM6k8uNAQBA I am a bit of a ma...

Re: Trump proclaims himself "King of Israel", and "Second Coming of God"

@Octavious, ignoring Jamie's trolling, do you see the "King of Israel" tweet, the "ignorant and disloyal" thing and the "I am the Chosen One"...appropriate, inappropriate or just not a big deal? I am assuming that you think it is OK (which is why I responded to you - I don't think any of this is OK)...

Never had any problem No ad promising Russian ladies who want to meet me, fingers crossed no ad will tarnish my webdip page This is the issue, isn't it?

Re: Trump proclaims himself "King of Israel", and "Second Coming of God"

"I genuinely can't work out if you're being deliberately dense or you're sincere... :?" I feel the same way about you since when you start with a lie, it doesn't matter which direction you go because it's still a lie. Calling it a truth doesn't make a lie the truth. It just means that you are repea...

It really is a blatant Network Neutrality violation...but the current FCC led by Ajit Pai doesn't see this as a problem.

ISP Inserts Ad On Top Of Webdip Website

A few days ago I accidentally logged into webdip on a mobile browser using just http instead of https (I must not have https everywhere installed on it). When I came back today to the browser, my ISP inserted an ad on top of the page: https://imgur.com/a/Wj2mKox Just a reminder of why http is so ins...

Re: Trump proclaims himself "King of Israel", and "Second Coming of God"

Shouldn't a president take at least some responsibility for what they say or what they publish though? Should "thuthiness" really be the new standard for political discourse? People time and time again mistake me for a Trump supporter. If I had the ability to vote in US elections I would never have...

Re: Trump proclaims himself "King of Israel", and "Second Coming of God"

Good Lord, Jamie, are you still deliberately trying to misunderstand that? That's a truly impressive set of self imposed blinkers. All I have seen are tweets of Trump in which he's quoting a (I assume well known) arse licker, as Trump often does. That is not the same as proclaiming himself king of ...

Re: Is it okay to engage with the alt-right?

The criticism of Rogan’s podcast that I’ve seen have been about his failure to actively challenge the viewpoints of his alt-right guests. Which is a very different problem than simply giving them a platform/engaging. Though with deplatforming being in vogue these days I’m sure there are many people...
