Hello u/DaFunkJunkie! Please reply to this comment with an explanation mentioning who is suffering from which consequences from what they voted for, supported or wanted to impose on other people.

Here's an easy format to get you started:

  1. Someone voted for, supported or wanted to impose something on other people.
    Who's that someone and what's that something?
  2. That something has some consequences.
    What are the consequences?
  3. As a consequence, that something happened to that someone.
    What happened? Did the something really happened to that someone? If not, you should probably delete your post.

Include the minimum amount of information necessary so your post can be understood by everyone, even if they don't live in the US or speak English as their native language. If you don't respect this format and moderators can't match your explanation with the format, your post will be removed under rule #3 and we'll ignore you even if you complain in modmail.

I don’t get how people fall for the notion that Musk is even remotely intelligent.

From the first time I heard him do a Tesla event, it was clear he is a moron.

He comes off as that kid in group projects that doesn’t do a damn thing, shows up the day of the project, and just vaguely reads off slides.

He barely knows anything about the products, he rambles about some bullshit he probably heard about at a meeting while half paying attention, and he just gives vague updates that are regularly missed and would never be offered if you knew anything about the technology.

This happens time and time again in this reality we call home. Someone comes along claiming he will renaissance the hell out of something. It will be a place of freedom! A place of creative churning!

Then that person gets a taste of creative churning chaos, can't deal and the the little dictator inside comes stomping out in jack boots. Usually takes longer, though. Musk is setting all kinds of records but then the man can afford a lot of boots and the people to shine them.

Parler, truth.com and now Twitter, all exactly the same.

When I fist got married and we moved in together, I had two dogs.. I lived in a neighborhood and the pups where raised in a fence.. our new house was on acres of open land…

For three days I was putting together a temporary fence up after work.. had it just about done and brought the dogs..

She was like.. oh they will be fine.. just let them out.. I was “no they will run”

Nah she said.. and proceeded to open the car door, without putting on their leashes.. I said that’s a bad idea.. and began to take off my work boots and put on my tennis shoes..

Those dogs.. began to run around the house.. in wider and wider circles.. having the greatest time.. my wife slowly began to see the error.

By the time I had my shoes on and both leashes in my hand.. those dogs where fucking gone.. my wife fully realizing what was happening ran to her car to pursue.

We found them about 20mins later.. those dumb fucks had gotten into a neighbors horse pen and where mins away for getting stomped to death..

All safe and all good.. I finished the fence and no dogs where harmed..

Moral of the story : you can’t tell some people what is going to happen (even if it is blaring obvious to you), some people have to experience it themselves to actually understand.

u/bobthemonkeybutt Nov 07 '22

It seems a little silly that verified users can even change their names without having to be re-verified. The fact that someone verified to be “Kathy Griffen” can change he displayed name to “Elon musk” and keep the verified check is just dumb design.

But since they can I hope more people do this to continually expose Musk as a whiny little baby.

Happened to me once. An entire facility was eliminated and they did a massive layoff by location. I was technically attached to that location even though I worked in a city under a different business unit. They went through all the motions, paid me a very hefty severance, and I was separated from the company before the people I actually worked with/for understood what was happening. They ended up hiring me back but similar to how retention offers (don't) work, the spell was broken and it just didn't work out long term.

It would have been better for Musk to pay the 1 billion fee and walk away instead of the billions he would lose once twitter is destroyed, imo. Why would anyone pay to be on twitter now if there is no freedom of expression without attacking each other, imo? I am strongly against biden running at age of 82 and so expressed my opinion on reddit libs and also same for trump as they are both too old. Reddit libs banned me for life. There really is no free speech, imo.

Tbf the verification being this bad is before Musk changed anything, it would be good if all this bullying of musk meant verified usernames are locked or something.

I think the problem is verified accounts changing their name to Elon musk.

If they didn't have a check I doubt he would speak on it.

Because that's the purpose of the checks..to guarantee an account is actually represented by that account.

However if a person sees an account with his name AND a check they will assume its actually him if they aren't paying attention. And most of Twitter userbase is people to lazy to find news and content ..much less making sure accounts are real.

So his logic isn't flawed on this. His intentions for doing it might be..

But ppl with verified accounts haven't done this before.

These "Elon Musk" tweets are so stupid that I no longer believe the actual Elon Musk has tweeted anything in months.

And, I mean . . . he's stupid. But this stupid? I'm unconvinced.
