Mace is a popular brand of pepper spray. “Macing” just refers to the act of spraying it.

Just adds more evidence to what a lot of us have already said: They’re not in it for the ideology, they’re just in it for the money.

Oh god, he really said science requires faith? Look, I don’t want to shit on atheists but as someone who’s been studying microbiology for 4 years, I cringe every time one of them acts like science is a fucking religion. Religion is about forming a community and discussing philosophy. Science is about quantifying things to give us a better understanding of how they work. They are two very different things. You don’t have to have both but you can’t substitute one for the other.

The evidence looks good enough that I’ll believe the event happened. I am not yet convinced that this was necessarily GG-related but if it is:

It could have just been some idiot going “oh boy, I should test if this mace actually works” and then they just sprayed it in the air. I won’t be 100% convinced it was done by an aGGro until we have more evidence.

You know, that might me a legitimate concern to have. I say “might” because I’m not one of KYM’s web developers so I couldn’t tell you how many comments it would take to cause a problem.

Bingo. I think we have a winner!
/pol/ goes out of it’s way to offend everyone while SJWs go out of their way to be offended by everyone.

Impersonating a lawyer?


Do these people actually plan anything out? Did this guy think Hotwheels wouldn’t look into this C&D before complying? Most importantly of all, is this illegal, how illegal is it, and who would press charges?

I suppose. There were certainly those who apposed SJWs before GG and those who appose them now who don’t care about GG. I guess you could call them anti-SJWs.

Kind of funny that this is the exact polar opposite image ISIS wants to have. I warned them they’d get memed on.

Why contain it? S’cool!
Let it spill over the schools and mosques, let the memes pile up in the forums. In the end, ISIS will beg us to save them.

Kind of looks like kind of a looney news site but if other sites start jumping on the band wagon, it could be pretty good for us.

Look, I’m not one of those people who believes “free market = no regulations whatsoever” but come on Bahb. The market does best when competition is encouraged. Controlling everything through the state or allowing all-consuming monopolies to form are equally bad for the working class. There are politicians on both sides of the isle that help manipulate market regulations in favor of whatever corporation gave them the most funding.

We have to let businesses do what they need to do while keeping them accountable for shady dealings (exactly what GG is doing). The modern market (especially the entertainment market) relies on the consumer. We are the market just as much as the wealthy are. You better trust us Bahb. We’re the only thing that keeps you afloat.

God damn. Before GG I never would have thought that Bob was such an asshole. I mean, I could understand that you just don’t like TB’s style or content (I like it but I know most things are a matter of taste) but the attacks on him as some sort of monster are really bizarre. He’s a professional in an internet full of extremely unprofessional people.

OK, let me correct myself. It’s not all that bizarre knowing the people we’re dealing with. They know he’s a threat to their position of power and rather than trying to adapt and actually try to compete with him they go for slander and mudslinging. I have not seen a single one of these people provide a legitimate reason why TB is bad besides “lulz, he has toxic masculine traits (read as: a deep voice and a beard) and he stood up for teh ideas of GoobleGabble PittlePattle BeetleBattle. He’s a baaad man who made muh knees soggy. Go my flying monkeys! Throw your shit at him!”

Jesus Christ. I don’t know what to even say. He brought my friends and I quite a lot of laughs over the years. I knew he had leukemia but I always assumed he was going to get better.

It’s such a shock when something like this happens to someone so young. One of my old college friends died of cancer just last year. I think he was only 21. I didn’t seem him much before the time he died. I always thought I’d make the time to see him later.

kitty0706, I don’t even know what your real name was but you were one hell of a guy. I couldn’t forget your bizarre and wondrous creations even if I tried.

I really sympathize with the people who knew him. I can’t say I know what it’s like to loose a parent or a son but I do know what it’s like to loose an old friend.

Speaking of the VlogBrothers, when GG hit the mainstream, I was actually worried they would get involved. I had a lot of respect for them when I was a teenager and I had a nasty feeling in the back of my mind that they would come out as full-on anti due to their left leanings. I’m really hoping they’ll try to stay away from it as they have other controversies in the past. They know they have a lot of influence and so far they’ve tried to avoid using that power to fuel flame wars.

They were once asked if they believed in god and they refused to answer directly because they didn’t want their opinions to be used as ammo in internet arguments. Regardless of their view on GG, they’re smart people and they too are sick of the MSM’s bullshit.

I don’t know what to think either. On one hand, it’s kind of hilarious that the former Editor in Chief was banned from the website he just worked at. On the other, I hope there was a good reason for him being banned. I’d feel fine if he was banned for being an asshole but I’d be concerned if he was banned just for his position on GG.

It looks like things are generally going quite well for the moment.
Perhaps we will know peace once again in our time.
