The Chainlink

Hey all,

I got invited to join this group on facebook because of another group I'm associated with. 

Regardless of how you feel about "hipsters" living in Pilsen, a group promoting violence against cyclists is unacceptable. I would encourage everyone to send a message to the woman who formed this group and share your thoughts. 

Posts in the group such as this: 

'I hit a hipster with my car smoking a roll up and she call me a spic.. and kept on biking'


'ooo how about getting in a car really fast and then opening the driver door side when they roll up...and they are riding with no hand hopefully lol'

Thanks.

I'm keeping screenshots of all the threats they have posted. In case someone reports that they were harmed in such a way, at least it's something to go on for the police.

Mission accomplished.

Yeah, the mission of giving them the satisfaction of knowing their racist message got to the right place.

Facebook's less than helpful response to my flagging of the offensive page:

"Hi,

Thanks for your recent report of a potential violation on Facebook. After reviewing your report, we were not able to confirm that the specific group you reported violates Facebook's Statement of Rights and Responsibilities.

Learn more about what we do and don't allow by reviewing the Facebook Community Standards: https://www.facebook.com/communitystandards.

Thanks, Viki"

Yeah. Thanks a lot, Viki.

LOL at the Zuckertards.   Being on Facebook is its own punishment.

And we're trolling, trolling, trolling on the river...

Reported!

I wonder if the new research on homophobia applies - those who are most hateful tend to be closeted (in this case) hipsters :)

  • Hipsters (i.e you. Why refer when we can just cut to the chase?) don't offend me! They annoy me and fill me with a strong violent urge to KILL. KILL. KILL. Clearly your grasp on self-awareness is 'a fail'. I can't wait to see you on on a bike! Seriously though. I'll leave this off here because it's the internet and everyone who argues on it is pretty silly but if you message me again with your petty whiney dickless bullshit there will be a real-life issue. Got it? Good. I knew we'd understand one another.

I think you are onto something. It is probably painful for these kids who have pretty much dedicated their entire lives to being as cool as possible to find their niche ignored while the hipsters get all the attention.

The two groups have a lot in common: ill-defined and often contradictory counter-cultural sentiments, alienation and a herd-mentality aesthetic based on more or less entirely random memes.

^This. Look at how some of the admins are dressed/what their interests are. Pure hipster, from what my stereotypical impressions are.  I have nothing against hipsters per se; I used to be one.  We just called it "being Alternative" in the 90's.  I grew up, my hair fell out, and I got sick of flannel. Happens to most of us. 

If you look at any of the members of the group you'll realize that this is the most delicious irony. Everyone in that group is either a hipster or a variant of some trendy bullshit like "the scene" or metalheads or whatever-the-fuck-else. I say ignore it, report the page, and press charges if anything actually does happen. People are stupid.

Yeah, but before you switch to Google+,

I guess Google doesn't need the government to track down data for it ... it'll do that very nicely on its own, thank you.

Google+ don't need to be CISPA compliant. They only sell your data for $.
