Japanese Woman Puts Cheating Boyfriend’s Electronics In Bathtub

Japanese Woman Puts Cheating Boyfriend’s Electronics In Bathtub

A Japanese woman put every single one of her ex-boyfriend’s electronic products in a bathtub to get revenge on him for cheating on her. After filling the tub with water, destroying everything inside, she sent him a picture of the tragic scene. After the boyfriend uploaded the picture to several social networking sites, it went viral. Some netizens say that although the boyfriend was wrong to cheat, the woman’s reaction was too extreme. Others praise her behavior, saying that “It will be a breakup he’ll never forget.”

    Unless it’s battery powered (and has a full-ish charge) putting electronic devices in fresh water most likely won’t wreck them. Just let them fully dry out before plugging them back in.

    It is sad that weeks later nothing about this site is back to normal. Few full articles are being picked, fully translated by a person and few comments are translated. This has been going on for more than a month. There is no reason to not give an explanation to those who are loyal to the site. Please don’t bother to tell me about an explanation that is forthcoming. Even if it is it is much too late. Too bad, this used to be a pretty darn good website. To make things worse, all of this has happened right after a 6 month campaign to get people to donate to the site.

        I saw this when it came out. I do not know why you think sending me to a commercial advertisement is relevant? It is not the explanation that was promised us. This is simply a commercial.

        • Alex Dương

          Please read the second page.

    • yi_ge_yi_jian

      Yes, this is insane. I also love how the cS that we have grown to love over the past 7 years has become a giant shill for this Amanda software, about which there is conveniently no comments section, most likely because whoever is behind cS these days is afraid of the backlash.

      Whelp, cS, it was a great better part of a decade, but it’s time I removed you from my daily feed. 老朋友,再见。

      • Alex Dương

        It costs money for the site to be run. Partnering with an app allows the site to continue at the cost of fewer popular / trending articles + comments. What would you prefer? Fauna to keep running the site the old way out of her own pocket?

        • ClausRasmussen

          I’m ok with Fauna monetizing on all her work but this is no longer ChinaSMACK. It is another product

          I also wonder how much that app will make, the potential customer base must be limited ? I don’t see the business case

          • Alex Dương

            My understanding is that this wasn’t done to “cash in.” It was done for “survival” to continue the site.

          • ClausRasmussen

            I think the general sentiment is that this is not CS any more, so we fail to understand the “survival” part of it

            This was a *GREAT* site as long as it lasted but I fear I will be frequenting it a lot less in the future

          • Alex Dương

            Survival in the sense that without the partnership, there would be no chinaSMACK at all. I understand the disappointment that many have that the site no longer posts nearly as many translations of popular / trending articles + comments as it did before. But it will still do it, and if that’s what brings you here when it happens, all is good.

          • Everything has a life cycle and things change over time.

            What used to be easy and an acceptable use of your time/money may not be now. So perhaps the owner’s goals and commitments have changed since the site started.

            Eventually, a business must make a profit or else other life priorities will demand your resources (time, energy and money).

            The challenge of owning a small business…a successful business requires your life and when you want your life back, changes are required. Sometimes the only option is to blow it up; especially when you are unable to provide something of value.

            I would caution them to maintain the format that made CS successful if this is a financial issue only.

            Does it cost $1K or $10K to run this site?
            I don’t know their business, so I don’t know the numbers.

            But when asking for money, there has to be complete transparency/honesty.

          • ClausRasmussen

            My guess is that it is not so much about the money to pay for hosting and domain name as it is about Fauna basically having a full-time unpaid job translating the stories for us

          • Right – Thanks,
            that is what I meant by them (or any business owner) knowing their numbers.
            Everything translates to Dollars and Cents (or Yuan and Mao).

        • yi_ge_yi_jian

          This is NOT what is occurring.

          cS, over the past several weeks, has completely changed.

          It would be one thing for Fauna to announce that there is a new partnership with Amanda, and to please support this app, whilst keeping cS more or less functional. That is not as the advertising blitz on the homepage reads.

          With regard to Patreon, there were long and productive discussion threads, and everything appeared to be aboveboard. Yet, after weeks of relative quiet, whilst regular article posting has all but stopped, a major advertisement for Amanda is posted, and comments/discussion disabled. Users of cS are not dumb, and it is obvious that you know this will be a highly controversial move, so you have preemptively shut out any comments directly in reference to this radical move.

          Furthermore, was there some memo about making Fauna into some kind of martyr? Let her speak for herself. Even in my comment thread with Kai several months ago, Fauna was cast as some theoretical martyr in response to myself merely suggesting some potential advertising sources. Of course none of the cS users, including myself, want Fauna to run the site solely out of her own pocket. That having been said, there are far more tactful ways of making this clear, rather than maintaining near-radio silence, followed by a massive shill front and center, whilst drastically reducing the content for which cS users primarily visit the site. This is the most rudimentary manner of managing an online community of this size.

          If Fauna no longer wishes to, or is no longer capable of, running cS, then a memorandum from her followed by a shutdown is what should occur. Not this hiding behind smoke and mirrors whilst the site is destroyed.

          As ClausRasmussen stated, “I’m ok with Fauna monetizing on all her work but this is no longer ChinaSMACK. It is another product.” Indeed.

            It would be one thing for Fauna to announce that there is a new partnership with Amanda, and to please support this app, whilst keeping cS more or less functional. That is not as the advertising blitz on the homepage reads.

            You’re talking about partnering with a smart phone app while keeping things the way they were. Realistically, how can that happen? As the announcement stated, “cS’s traditional format is not suited for the small screens of mobile phones.” So the translations that are posted are posted only on the chinaSMACK web site. They aren’t on the app.

            Yet, after weeks of relative quiet…

            For you. Not for mr.wiener and me. Many people asked where the translations had gone and why there were suddenly these short posts popping up left and right. We’ve said repeatedly that an announcement was coming. The announcement came last Friday.

            If Fauna no longer wishes to, or is no longer capable of, running cS, then a memorandum from her followed by a shutdown is what should occur. Not this hiding behind smoke and mirrors whilst the site is destroyed.

            So because you can’t get as many translations as you used to, that means shut the entire site down?

          • moop

            i don’t really have a problem with the issue of adding this or that to the site to stay afloat. what i take issue with is that what made chinasmack “chinasmack” is now not even going to comprise the majority of content on this site. if you gotta change some things to stay in the black then by all means do so, but at least have the translated articles as still a majority of the content.

            i also think that you and weiner told us too little. i know that isnt your fault, but we were left in the dark a little too long on this and for whatever reason i had high expectations for the “big change” that was coming. feels like a big let down

          • KamikaziPilot

            I think what it basically comes down to is this site costs money and time that evidently the people who run this site don’t have enough of to continue the way it is. They made a compromise, albeit a big one, to just continue running this site. “Left in the dark”? That kind of implies that the mods owe us something when in reality we’re all here for free enjoying this website. If they told us earlier would it have made any difference? I agree though that the “big change” was more like a balloon deflating when it came. I have a feeling we may lose posters if things continue like this but I’m not sure what the solution would be to return the site to a semblance of its former self. Any ideas?

          • moop

            i dont mean to imply the mods owe us anything, i believe they told us what they were allowed to tell us, but what they were allowed to tell us wasnt much at all. “please be patient. big changes are coming” was all i remember being told.

            i dunno, i just think the whole “big reveal” took a really long time, and they just automatically starting the whole “amanda” part of the website without telling us what was up.

            why not just make an announcement that “big changes” are coming to cS without more or less putting the brakes on everything? it seemed like it took posters’ complaints to even get the limited info we received.

            just think the roll out and transition was handled a little poorly. like i said, i dont care much about the additions to the site, but i think in the process they have reduced too much of their “core”.

          • KamikaziPilot

            Yeah, there wasn’t much transparency. I don’t know what the mods were hiding, maybe they really weren’t sure themselves and didn’t want to give false information so they were intentionally vague. Anyway change is here, I guess only time will tell what will come of this website. I just hope it doesn’t go the way of the dinosaurs like a couple other websites I used to frequent way back in the ancient internet times (10 years ago).

          • mr.wiener

            The mods knew as much as you did… stories dropped off and then stopped. We both got in touch with Kai and were told to hold the fort. The weekend before we were contacted and given an outline….. and now here we are..
            Speaking for myself I’m feeling a little let down by this also and I’m hoping we can have more stories and less of the digest material.. A balance has to be reached.. Like all the rest of you the mods are here hoping this site can endure, and we do not get paid for any of this , we just love what CS was and hope some semblence of that can remain. The day CS turns into an appeaser of any dominent culture’s percieved right to be beyond criticism or scrutine ..is the day I hang up my mod’s hat.
            Mark.

          • moop

            Yeah, I figured you and Alex weren’t holding anything back of your own volition. a little surprised cS didnt give you guys more details

          • mr.wiener

            …In other news The Fred Fong has dropped off the Shanghaiist,made his account private and by all accounts is in the shite with the powers that be.
            I never agreed with the guy and had many arguments with him ,but this represents a worrying developement. We are living as the Chinese were have preported to say “in interesting times” … I’ve never found a single Chinese person to confirm that saying.

          • ClausRasmussen

            >> Fred Fong […] is in the shite with the powers that be

            Do tell more !! BTW: I thought he was working for Shanghaiist (and have some circumstantial evidence to back it up)

            Edit: I tracked down what is probably his out-of-shanghaiist blog. It seems to have been harmonized: http://blog.sina.com.cn/cn/kmcgeary

          • bujiebuke

            “Do tell more !! BTW: I thought he was working for Shanghaiist (and have some circumstantial evidence to back it up)”

            The link appears to be broken. I would be interested in reading the evidence that you have.

          • ClausRasmussen

            The, albeit circumstantial, evidence is that Shanghaiist relocated their offices last year. It took 4 days where there were no new stories and suspiciously also not a sound from the resident troll. Then, when the editors were back, so was Fred within a few minutes after they went live

            Considering his usually compulsive posting behavior I find that a strange coincidence. He has also at times displayed some inside knowledge of Shanghaiist operations, although he could be bluffing

            On the other hand: The mainline theory of his RL identity place him in Chengdu, far from Shanghaiists offices

          • bujiebuke

            For anyone who’s interested, Kevin McGeary (https://twitter.com/kmcgeary) is “Fred Fong” (https://thenanfang.com/prd-people-musician-and-expat-website-troll-the-fred-fong/).

            He writes and sings satirical songs about China. He’s got some interesting ideas and it’s worth listening to at least one of his songs. He actually seems like an interesting fellow as opposed to his half-wit internet persona. Terrible nasal British voice that I find very distracting, but what can you do. You make the best of what your born with – or surgery.

          • come on bujie, this one had to give you a few chuckles?!

          • bujiebuke

            For sure, but somehow his voice is completely different in this one. Maybe he hired a singer…

          • Your Honor

            SATIRICAL? I would say he is downright rude, racist and condescending. And a dick.

          • Your Honor

            yes…let the Human Flesh Search Engine ROLL

          • bujiebuke

            Can you explain what you mean by “… this represents a worrying development”.

            “Fred Fong” is the equivalent of a self-proclaimed comedian who tells racist Asian jokes while dressed in a tattered rice paddy garb. His posts were anachronistic and blunt to the point that it was confusing whether he was serious or just trolling most of the time.

            The fact that he has been presumably banned tells me that the Shanghaiist is starting to moderate the comment section in a similar vein that Chinasmack had started a few years ago.

          • Shanghaiist may try to fill those shoes for former CS readers…is there another/better alternative to CS?

            I take any of those type of posters (Like Fred Fong) as an attempt at comedy; maybe he was throwing jabs, but they were usually too ridiculous to take seriously. It must have been tough for him to come up with new material and perhaps that is why he recycled frequently

          • bujiebuke

            Defining his writing as comedy is an insult to that art form. I’m almost certain his attempts were trying to stir a hornets nest and to get an amount of attention that would otherwise be un-achievable in his real life. To that end, I suppose it’s worked given the amount of attention he still receives on Chinasmack and Shanghaiist.

            My question was directed at Mr. Weiner seeking clarification on what he meant by “worrying development” and how it relates to Fred Fong.

            I’m not sure if there are better alternatives.

          • OK – if not personally directed at someone, I guess I don’t take those posts that way.
            cheers,

          • mr.wiener

            FF is clearly a divisive person, I remember when Some English guy was parodying him and also posting as the ” FF”, he searched the guy out and exposed his life for all to see ,including photos and disgustingly racist comments about the guy’s wife…it was merciless and vindictive.
            I’m not a fan of the guy, but if they can shut him down and take him in for “unpopular speech” or maybe even “hurting the feelings of the Chinese people” … then which of us, or Chinese people scrutinizing their own govt, are safe?
            It is a slippery slope.

          • KamikaziPilot

            I only know FF from what he posted in CS not Shanghaiist but I never had any positive or even neutral feelings towards him, only negative. Even if he has another side to him, which most people do, I can’t dismiss what he wrote as purely trolling. I don’t think there’s any doubt that he hates Chinese people and all other Asians too, though of course he’ll probably just say he was “joking” when making those racist comments. Another posters says he may have got caught up in the purge against lousy English teachers, which wouldn’t surprise me one bit. If true, yes it’s a slippery slope that got him in trouble, but I still don’t feel any sympathy for him.

          • mr.wiener

            Yes but if it starts with unfunny self loathing half asian failed singers it can then move on to other people the govt don’t like, you dig?
            Like him or loathe him, to me FF’s arrest[?] deportation[?] is a worrying development.

          • KamikaziPilot

            Yeah I get what you’re saying. Maybe the best thing would not be for him to get into trouble with authorities, but rather have him piss off the wrong guy on the streets and then sustain a beating for 15 minutes to knock the stupidity and racism out of him, then maybe he’ll just go back to where he came from on his own.

          • bujiebuke

            “he searched the guy out and exposed his life for all to see ,including photos and disgustingly racist comments about the guy’s wife”

            Wow, I did not know about this. My perception of this guy has changed quite a bit in the last day. FF might become the topic of the next translated ChinaSmack article… “Infamous internet troll gets beaten by Chenguan, Chinese netizens rejoice”

          • ClausRasmussen

            >> Infamous internet troll gets beaten by Chenguan, Chinese netizens rejoice

            While one part of me would love to see that headline, Wiener is right that it is a slippery slope if government begin locking up people for saying their opinion (no matter how repugnant) on an English language web site

            Better would be to translate his trolling back to Chinese, distribute it to his neighbors and colleges, then lean back and enjoy the ensuing spectacle

          • Your Honor

            yes.

          • Your Honor

            VERY slippery,

          • Teacher in China

            There was a recent Shanghaiist piece that had some translated netizen comments, so maybe they will try to fill CS’ shoes. The commenteriat over there is pretty rough though, lots of weird personal grudges and trolling, even besides FF.

          • ClausRasmussen

            The real problem with FF is trolls attracts trolls. Believe it or not; Shanghaiist once had a reasonable forum but it deteriorated fast after FF showed up

          • Teacher in China

            I had never been there until … I guess half a year ago? I rarely checked it out because I liked CS better, and that was enough for me. I’ll have to take your word for it on the troll issue. Hopefully now that he’s gone, things will settle down a little.

          • ClausRasmussen

            Haha… I used to be there until a half year ago when I finally got enough of all the trolling

          • Maybe Weiner should launch “China(smack) Lite”?

          • mr.wiener

            I ‘d be more likely to do a cooking site encouraging people to eat sausages. I could call it “My wiener in your hands” :)

          • That probably would not get me to visit.
            I’ve always liked your “China Light/Lite/etc”

            You are right – don’t do something if you’re not into it or don’t understand it (unless you have a lot of money to hire people who do)

          • ClausRasmussen

            I’m all for a cooking site, but…

            >> My wiener in your hands

            …that’s where you lost me as a potential customer lol

          • Teacher in China

            And also, I think he crossed the line from comedy to pure trolling a long time ago. Sometimes online people hide behind the “Hey, I’m just trolling, lulz!” when in fact they are just ignorant racists – I think he is one of those. The place is much better off without him there.

          • Your Honor

            word.

          • mr.wiener

            Nope.. word has it the cops raided hos house ,smashed dis computer gear,beat him up and took him.

          • bujiebuke

            You know, that’s exactly what I was thinking but I just needed to read it from your words for reassurance.

            All hail Murgatroyd

          • mr.wiener

            The thread on the nanfang on this topic has been deleted,so all we have is vague and unsubstanciated rumours to go on.. I don’t like speculating,but what else is to be done?

          • bujiebuke

            OK. I don’t visit the Shanghaist very often but now I understand what you were referring to. There’s rank speculation that Kevin McGeary (Fred Fong) is in a Chinese jail (http://shanghaiist.com/2015/04/29/watch_developers_rent_out_foreigner.php) for anyone interested.

            Like you, I rarely agreed with the guy, but he doesn’t deserve even half of the stuff that’s happened, if true. I hope to Cthulu the police are not bright enough to go through his past posts and videos… that could get ugly fast.

            Anyone know the number to that blind Chinese lawyer or Hilary Clinton?

          • Teacher in China

            To be honest, and I know this is going to sound awful, but whatever happens to him, he deserves it. I’m tired of the modern day tendency towards being as rude, hateful, ignorant, and racist as possible because “I’m trolling, relax brah”. What you put on the internet stays there and can be used against you in the future – more people need to learn that lesson. Just be a normal, reasonable fucking person as much as possible and both your real and internet life will be a lot happier.

          • bujiebuke

            I understand your sentiment and usually I’d be inclined to agree with you on this subject. However, I think having the police drag him out of his apartment bloodied and confiscate his computer is crossing the line. It’s all speculation at this point, perhaps additional information will come out in the next few days.

          • KamikaziPilot

            Well like wiener said, it’s a slippery slope. I’m kind of conflicted in that I think he deserved it too, but at the same time it sets the stage for further detentions/harassment for expressing opinions, no matter how inane they are. I only know him from CS, not Shanghaiist, but I found him totally distasteful and to be honest i was more offended by his stupidity than his racism, and that’s saying something. While I’m sure he has another side to him, the relative anonymity and lack of consequences of the internet often let people reveal more of their true feelings. I have no doubt FF hates Asians therefore I have no sympathy for whatever happens to him.

          • Wow KP – I agree that his “humor” could be viewed by some as insensitive and tasteless, but I don’t think this guy is a racist – I think this is his release/form of expression. Lots of “artists” in the world like this.
            Thanks to one of the folks in this thread (Claus or bujie?) – directed us to this link – I think this interview shows the oppositie of that…

            yes, no, maybe?

          • KamikaziPilot

            Have you read his comments on this site before? Talking about bukkake and making fun of various Chinese people constantly? Plus that racist avatar of his. Of course when he’s being interviewed he’ll show a different side, but it seems like he gets his entertainment from poking fun at those less fortunate or from a different culture than him. While some may see it as good natured humor, I don’t see it that way. It could be because I also take into account the history of mistreatment of Chinese by Western occupiers in the past. I think some of that attitude is still around. I’ll chalk up our differences of opinion to different perspectives, as he’s not like a KKK member who displays blatant, undeniable racism, but I do sense animosity from him towards asians.

          • moop

            He also has animosity towards white English teachers and feminists…. Dudes just a major troll

          • Some of his stuff was “boring” and trite, but I would rather have him posting than not. If I don’t like what he has to say, I scroll down (or maybe reply)

          • KamikaziPilot

            I thought he is/was an English teacher? Sounds like he’s a narcissist, China would be better without him there.

          • moop

            if every narcissist was kicked out of china there would be no traffic in the street.

          • KamikaziPilot

            Yeah so China has enough home grown narcissists, they don’t need to import any more.

          • moop

            then lets break down all their doors, beat them, and throw them in jail!

          • I don’t know the guy, but based on what little I watched (what was presented in these threads), he is bright, hard working and motivated (and probably troubled, as most are in some way).

            He says he WAS an English teacher for 3-4 years when he first came to China and used most of his free time, to learn the language. That is impressive!

            His avatar reminded me of David Carradine with a Fu Manchu – I think he was creating a character, maybe tasteless to some, but if you listen to that interview, he explains that he embraces humor by PUSHING Boundaries – which means most people WON’T get it – and maybe even be offended.

            If it is not directed at specific people/individuals, I usually ignore it, don’t take them seriously – look at them as a form of entertainment – maybe not YOUR taste, but harmless. Go Ahead and engage, but remember it’s an apparition – ignore that man behind the curtain.

          • KamikaziPilot

            Of course anyone can appear presentable in a video clip. It doesn’t change who they are. Based on what I watched he does seem self absorbed. I see him using China’s problems as a platform for his own entertainment, although I can see how others might see it otherwise. Maybe since I’m not a fan of satire that’s how he comes across in the video. Now as far as his comments on CS, there’s no doubt they were racially derogatory. Even if you interpret his interview as showing a better side of him it doesn’t take away from his comments here on CS.

            Actually I don’t find a foreigner learning Chinese any more impressive than foreigners in America who learn English. Actually maybe less impressive since it’s easier to get by without knowing Chinese in China than it is without knowing English in America, therefore less pressure to learn Chinese. But I do give him credit for learning the language, it’s more than many foreigners do. So that is a positive for him.

            I still think he crossed the line, though I admit different people have different interpretations of where that line is. IMO he’s a racist not to mention a narcissist who hides behind “satire”. I actually have more respect for certain KKK members and like minded groups (those who advocate separatism, not violence) who instead of hiding behind a veil, express their true feelings. I value straightforwardness and honesty a lot. If you (anyone, not you in particular) don’t like certain groups for whatever reasons I won’t try to change your mind, but just be honest about it is all I’m asking.

            Racist hating has no place in China…when you live in asia and make your living here. If he goes back to his white supremacy neighbourhood in the US, I would not care. Justice served I say.

          • mr.wiener

            I would say racist hating most definitely has a place in China and will probably continue to do so for a long time to come … depending on your perspective this is either a right thing or a wrong thing, but ultimately it just is a thing.

          • Your Honor

            a “thing”? I think it’s worse than that. But hey…only results count.

          • ClausRasmussen

            His twitter account show a posting from Tuesday but that is after a long period of silence

            An explanation could be that he got caught up in the anti-lousy-english-teacher campaign the authorities launched not long ago and was placed in a detention center before being kicked out of the country

            I don’t believe the smashing computer/beating up thing

          • nickhz

            anti-lousy-english-teacher campaign?

          • ClausRasmussen

            Excellent, good to hear.

            To bring your “harmonized” description of him to a language that everybody understands: Fred Fong was an insecure, bored-out racist with a low self-esteem who found himself funny.

          • Your Honor

            He was hired as click bait. Stirring up emotions and being rude. That’s how you generate traffic. Check the ALEXA numbers from -Sh-iist and you know what I mean

          • Oh no, I was wondering where he went…
            I thought he was hilarious, never took his posts seriously.

          • His account was always private. But in all seriousness, does anyone know what actually happened to him? This is I Survived China all over again.

          • Your Honor

            So, he got arrested/molested and deported as I hope?

          • Interesting to know,Who is the owner of this site (then and now)?

            Fauna and Kai have disappeared…
            Hope they weren’t on any of those airliners

          • KamikaziPilot

            “Hope they weren’t on any of those airliners”

            WTF? Haha, the last commercial airliner to go down went down months ago. I’m pretty sure I saw Kai after that. Or did I? Hmm, now I’m a little worried for the guy. C’mom @Kai show yourself buddy.

          • Teacher in China

            I’m in touch with Kai sometimes through e-mail. All is well with him, so don’t worry about him.

    • It is never going back to what it used to be….Thanks to Amanda….always a woman to blame – haha

      • Gerhana

        cant live with them cant live without them

        • Good to see you again Fire, I haven’t seen any of your creative writings in a while…
          How easy is it for you to interchange one woman with another?
          Do you think “love” is easily found or are most people settling for Miss Right Now to keep their bed warm at night?

  • moop

    I think we can all agree that what this site really needs are more “mods” who actively look for arguments and seem to take issue with most of the site’s readers

    • Alex Dương

      If you’re talking about the previous discussion we had (among others), you had incorrect views of the Chinese language. Factually speaking, it isn’t primarily pictographic, and it isn’t monosyllabic either.

      I want to make something clear. No one who posted at chinaSMACK has ever been banned for disagreeing with a moderator’s opinions. The number one reason I ban someone is blatant racism. The number two reason is that the person makes it clear that he has no interest in having a polite discussion.

      I’m against circlejerks. Have you ever tried to post a comment expressing your political views at Ta-Nehisi Coates’ blog at The Atlantic? Try it. See how quickly he or his moderator bans you for the “crime” of being a conservative or libertarian or (gasp!) more left-wing than Coates is.

      I don’t do that. Like I said, I’ve never banned anyone for disagreeing with my views on Tibet, the Chinese language, the Second Amendment, or anything else. Whatever you think of me, I want to make this 100% clear.

        “If you’re talking about the previous discussion we had (among others), you had incorrect views of the Chinese language. Factually speaking, it isn’t primarily pictographic, and it isn’t monosyllabic either.”

        nope, i’m not referring to that at all. i just think you are a terrible mod, but believe it or not a good member of the commentariat. you have a chip on your shoulder and you regularly jump on others on this website for what they say. you’re too opinionated and passionate to be a mod and you dont do a very good job of controlling yourself.

        mr. wiener on the other hand, actually moderates the site. he warns those that are pushing the limits of the comment policy and more or less stays out of ideological or political arguments. he isn’t on the hunt to break someone’s argument down, prove a logical fallacy, or uphold some kind of noble truth.

        ” The number one reason I ban someone is…” i think you cut yourself off here because this is where your post stops, but i don’t have issue with any bannings or non-bannings or whatever. just think you should choose to either be a mod or part of the commentariat, or that chinasmack should tell you to act like a mod not be one. just because according to you you havent abused your mod privileges does mean it isnt in the back of people’s minds when you decide to jump on them for some perceived slight or affront your sensibilities.

        you’re an intelligent guy, and hell, i’ve even agreed with you at times, you would make a great addition to the commentariat but i don’t think mods can have it both ways. chinasmack seems to disagree, but every website i’ve ever been too seems to do the opposite of what this website is doing. i’ve said all this shit before. kai isn’t a good mod either with his tedious fun-sucking logical argument policing, but at least he seems to keep his cool. come back to the dark side

        • Alex Dương

          I mistyped a link, and that caused the rest of my post to be cut off. Given your reply, I’m not sure how much it changes how you feel, but as I said, it’s something I want to make clear.

          • moop

            Tru dat, tru dat

        • Germandude

          Wow. Couldn’t have said it better.

          • moop

            i made a smart ass remark, but i like Alex. he’s a smart guy. i don’t have anything personal against him, or Kai for that matter. just how i feel, its probably irrelevant, but how i feel

          • Germandude

            And I agree with you on all accounts on this matter.

        • Incognito

          Well, commenting and moderating are not mutually exclusive, unless the moderator shows tendency to abuse the privilege to silent the voice of disagreement.

          I have orgasm most of the time reading intelligent essays, especially from Kai. Too many low quality comments these days.

          • I have to give Kai credit there. He should write books!

          • Mihel

            And be paid by the word.

          • David

            LMAO

    • Oh no, What did Christina do?
      She can be a tough nut!

    • bujiebuke

      I’m going to interpret your statement as a nomination for bujiebuke [mod]

  • WghUk

    All women do the same. Attack possessions of their man such as cars and other expensive gadgets.

  • ytuque

    Too extreme? Japanese seem to place a higher value on electronics than relationships. Perhaps, this explains their demographic crisis.
