Alright, big man? Had any decent scuffles on the world wide web recently?
Most recently with a Guardian writer over twitter about a shitty film review..couldn't help myself.
reporter knocked the film because of one tiny sub-plot historical inaccuracy, I really enjoyed the film so couldn't let it slide. Sorry, nothing too nasty.
It's only happened maybe two or three times this year though.
that was funny.
tell us about your fight ant
i need more time to recover, bit shaken up tbh
when i first signed up on twitter i was fond of #beefing for a while. although i'd probably go for the thinly-veiled subtweets over direct confrontation, tbh tbf
some on reddit for example, you can't help but get sucked in sometimes. Given time it all falls into some circular discussion where terms like "hand-wringing lefties" get bandied about, and people build up a strawman version of the "other side" and won't give even an inch. You get ridiculous things like people demanding sources: proper, peer reviewed sources, for idiotic minor details. If one is provided, it is torn to shreds. If it isn't, it is seen as a victory.
Some of the ones about Rotherham or UKIP are particularly depressing reads. I can't help myself sometimes though.
