      Bye-bye, status updates. Hello, strike.

  2. I can’t help but think many get offended over the most silliest things, snowflakes are everywhere. Eventually we’ll get to a point where breathing will be offensive.

      Isn't getting offended over other people getting offended over silly things a kind of silly thing itself?

    3. SaturnWolf

      But here you are, offended that people are offended.

      @DreamSaturn I ain’t offended i’m just wondering why we have people like this who do such things. I’m merely just exercising my freedom of thought and speech about a topic that’s very relevant in today’s world.

    5. KHCast

      KHCast

      What are these “silly things” you see people get offended over?

    6. Tefutakato

      Tefutakato

      @KHCast Glad you asked. One would be “cultural appropriation”, not sure if you heard about it. But it’s complete nonsense if you ask me. 

    7. SaturnWolf

      SaturnWolf

      What in particular did you say? Because a lot of the times, how you say things is equally as important.

      Exercising freedom of thought and speech isn’t always the wisest course of action. Discretion is a thing and should be used.

      @Kiah If you limit what you can say then what’s the point of having a free country? Rights and freedoms are there for a reason you know. 

    11. SaturnWolf

      SaturnWolf

      No one is saying that you can't say those things, but you have to ask yourself if you have to say it or if it would be smart to. Exercising restraint is important.

    12. Tefutakato

      @DreamSaturn People say what they like to say, sometimes it’s not what people want to hear and that’s fine. Getting a point across is what every human being does. Nothing wrong with that at all. 

    13. SaturnWolf

      SaturnWolf

      How you say things is equally important as what you're trying to say. Telling someone, "Hey dummy, you have shit on your face." would generally earn you some angry stares, but saying "Hey dude, you have a little...uh thing right there" would generally earn you gratitude.

      Same message, different presentation.

    14. Tefutakato

      Tefutakato

      @DreamSaturn It all really depends on the context. If the person was a dummy to get shit on their face. Then obviously they’d be told that. If it was an accident it’d be a different story, most likely they’d probably get a friendly reminder of the crap on their face or a few laughs. Everyone’s responses are different, most of the time it’s all in good spirit.

    15. SaturnWolf

      SaturnWolf

      You get what I'm saying, though?

      Being a jerk doesn't score you any points.

    16. Kiah

      Kiah

      This is what I mean by discretion. There is no thing as absolute freedom when it comes to speech. That’s why laws are made on the matter as there are limits and on a more relevant level why I strike people here on SSMB. Because you can’t always go around saying what you want to. Especially if isn’t tactful and even worse. 

    17. SaturnWolf

      SaturnWolf

      Freedom of Speech means that the government can't persecute you for what you say.

      SSMB and other private bodies are not the Government. You can say those things, but the people running the place reserve the right to show you the door.

    18. Tefutakato

      Tefutakato

      @DreamSaturn They don’t scare me, they can ban me if they want. I have other social media accounts. Losing access to my SSMB wouldn’t be the end of the world you know. What’s so important about a fictional anthropomorphic character, nothing at the end of the day. 

      @Kiah Opinions and words are just that. Opinions and words. Sure some talk out of their asses but sometimes it can be true or false depending on what you believe. If you silence those who speak their minds about stuff that absolutely matters to them then it’s completely cowardice and unfair to the ones who want their voices to be heard. Learning the views of others is completely healthy, agreeing or disagreeing is completely fine too. 

    19. SaturnWolf

      SaturnWolf

      The point isn't to scare you. The point is to tell you that freedom of speech doesn't mean that you can say and do whatever the hell you want wherever you want.

    20. KHCast

      KHCast

      No one would sympathize is someone that for example said “gays need to be burned because they’re sinning” was silence. Would you? Would you call that unfair and defend his right if he was banned for saying that?

    21. Kiah

      Kiah

      I’m not sure why you aren’t getting what we are trying to tell you. You can’t go around doing whatever and saying whatever you want to. Especially without consequences. Opinions and words have meaning and can have a negative impact on others hence the limits to free speech. 

      Learning the viewpoints of others can be healthy but isn’t necessarily always such. By the reactions of everyone commenting in this status this isn’t one of those instances. 

      No one is trying to silence you. Not everything we think needs to be said especially if it will offend others plain and simple. Discretion and even consideration for others as well as restraint needs to be exercised. 

      And for the record no one was threatening you. As you know I’m a moderator here and I just brought up me striking (and even banning) people for saying things that shouldn’t of been said because it is relevant to this exact situation. Actions come with consequences. This should be a given at this stage in our lives especially as adults. 

    22. Tefutakato

      Tefutakato

      @DreamSaturn Technically you do have the freedom to say whatever you like. We’re not robots, we’re human fucking beings with brains who say whatever at the end of the day. @KHCast You have the freedom to say what you wish, it is not supposed to matter sure you get some hateful speech from some assholes but that’s their own shameful opinion. Learn to let that shit go in the ear and out the other. They don’t know any better, stuff like that happened in the past the past is over no need to bring it up. 

      I mean some disagree with the homosexual lifestyle nothing wrong with that. A lot of faiths do Christianity, Judaism, Islam and a bunch of other faiths. I’m not saying there’s no bad apples in these groups, yes there is but there are some who are loving people who totally disagree with the lifestyle and i understand why. 

    23. SaturnWolf

      Okay so clearly the point I was making went way over your head. " Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. "
      In short, the government cannot persecute you for what you say. It does not, however, mean that you are free from the consequences of what you say. Just as you would have the right to kick me out of your house if I walked in and acted like an asshole, the same rule applies.

    24. Tefutakato

      Tefutakato

      @DreamSaturn If there’s no true freedom of speech and thought then we might as well change it into “The Limited Freedom of Speech and Thought”. So what your saying is the law can’t do anything to you but people can. Everyone has different ways to look at certain topics and issues, not everyone is gonna have the same exact feelings and morals as you it’s just the way the world works. Nobody has the right to force you to practice the same beliefs you practice that’s why freedom of choice is there to let us do whatever we please despite the consequences. It’s all up to you how you want to behave and act. It’s basically free will.

    25. SaturnWolf

      SaturnWolf

      Your actions and words will carry consequences and that's the entire point you're missing here.

      I'm not sure what's so hard to understand about this.

    26. Zaysho

      Zaysho

      'kay, this has run its course.

      I think you need to actually read and understand what people are saying. Yes, you are free to say what you want. That doesn't mean everyone else has to put up with it or not call what you say into question. That's how it works. What you say doesn't just exist in a vacuum.

  3. Good morning.

      Gresh11990

      Morning! 

  4. I do know sometimes friends need space. Nothing wrong with that i’m just gonna patiently wait for them to come around.  

  5. I have a hard time trusting others. Somehow I developed this thought that everyone I attempt to get close to will betray me and leave me if i’m not perfect enough. So I guess relationships require you to be fake and pretend to be someone else. I don’t want to perform for anyone anymore, I don’t want to disappoint anyone no more since i’m good at doing that apparently. 

    I’m slowly becoming addicted to certain things. I guess it helps to cover the empty feelings I have and the sense of not belonging to any group. I’m used to being rejected, i’m just not in the mood to get people to like me. I don’t really care in all honesty. 

    Sometimes I wonder if i’ll even make it through my twenties or even until next year. I don’t know.

    1. I Have Berry!

      I Have Berry!

      I have just one friend who's more than what you described. He never backstabs me, and I don't have to wear a mask to speak with him. I'm certain there is someone out there that would be the same for you.

    2. Mr Loopone

      Mr Loopone

      Join the club, I know exactly how you feel for years (just not with the perfect enough thing, it was the case of people changing their personalities for the worst). To this day, I cannot trust a single person whether in real life or online (where people do make up more false personalities even though you do see them with the former as well). It also doesn't help where I come from either... Would describe the people around me but it might be offensive. Probably why I doubled down with games and food around 5 years ago just to fill a gap. Am getting a bit better than in the past as in that I have got rid of some games and not eating as much but now I'm a bit flustered at the moment.

      Sometimes I wonder if I make it past this year and lucky if I do...

      @SupahBerry You are one lucky person. I mean it is possible just depends where you live, what personality you have and what websites you go to. Anyone who has a genuine friend with a compatible personality is lucky and anyone who has a girlfriend/boyfriend is beyond lucky.

  6. Good afternoon.

  7. Do you ever feel alone even when you have others around? We all experience loneliness but the feeling is so bad it has become an epidemic. Having a friend or two is a must. Friends make life worth living. 

  8. I’m 5 pounds down in weight. Hopefully I can lose more and keep it off. 

    1. Jack out of the comics!

      Jack out of the comics!

      Good! Not everyone can pull this off. Me for example.

  9. Happy birthday!

  10. One goal is i want to sleep more at night. I mostly just stay awake during the night and never go to bed until morning. Sleep hygiene is important.

  11. Been going outside a bit more lately. It feels nice to get fresh air. 

    1. PaulyBFromDa303

      PaulyBFromDa303

      Summer time. Though I'm more of a winter fan myself XD

  12. Maybe I should find “real friends” instead of online friends. Since there’s only so much they can do with you. I need an extroverted friend to get me out of my comfort zone. I need someone to help me feel like I belong. 

  13. Looking back at my old self there’s many things I didn’t like about him. Personally hatred of myself still exists but for the most part I accept myself for who I am. Don’t know if i’ll ever get over certain things though.

  14. It's going to be hard to get used to the smell of weed in October when it's legalized in Canada. I'm still not going to try it, since i know it gives me a bad headache because i got exposed to the fumes. 

    1. Mr Loopone

      Mr Loopone

      It's hard enough now as it avoiding that smell since it irratates my nose and gets to my poorly lungs quick, have to hold my nose everytime someone smokes that stuff.

      If I ever went to Canada, I probably would need an oxygen mask just to go out...

  15. I’m a person who speaks few words. My quietness is just a attribute I developed over time, some may find it rude but it’s just what I taught myself. I guess being made fun of in the past caused me not to speak much.

  16. If you were a Sonic character what animal would you be? 

    1. PaulyBFromDa303

      I made this OC back in 2003 XD

    2. Spookilator

      Spookilator

      Probably a dog. That’s what I identify with the most.

      (Bonus Point: JonTron would probably be a bird, lol)

      It’s in my name.

    5. booblur98

      booblur98

      probably a hedgehog, because i'm uncreative

      that's a real edgelord, pauly

    6. I Have Berry!

      I Have Berry!

      I'd likely just want to be a lizard, cause I like lizards, and I like to be pretty weird like lizards are, so yeah.

      At least I can attack and platform with my tounge so Espio doesn't have to.

    7. Adamabba

      Adamabba

      a bird, because I can jump twice

    8. The Tenth Doctor

      The Tenth Doctor

      Bird. There's a reason I went for that one in Forces. Means I'm kinda a dinosaur.

    9. Tatters

      Tatters

      A red panda or maybe go into a mythical animal like a Carbuncle.

    10. dbzfan7

      dbzfan7

      A monkey or a sloth I'd be.

  17. When a psychiatrist told me I was intelligent, it made me feel better inside and gave my perception of me being stupid go away. I am a smart individual but I don’t like showing I am clever. 

    1. DanJ86

      DanJ86

      Makes sense to me. The stupid are too dumb to worry about stuff while the more intelligent are more aware of what's going on and as such, will worry a lot more.

  18. The Punisher was a great TV show on Netflix. I loved what i watched.  

  19. Looks like i'm going to travel at the end of July. I'm heading to a convention in Manitoba, it's anime based so i hope to meet voice actors from my favorite anime shows there as well. The bus ride is going to be long, not to mention i hope i don't sit beside a stranger because it'd be awkward.

  20. Nessun dorma is a great song. Not a huge opera fan but i do like that particular song. 

  21. How are you all today?

    1. Mr Loopone

      Mr Loopone

      On one hand relieved but a bit upset on the other even though I knew it was coming. Forced retirement on what I do :(

      I think listening to Metallic Madness Acts 1 and 2 from Sonic Mania as well as Shadow's songs from Sonic Forces almost non-stop for the past two days had made me a bit crazy. STILL hear that sax and those lyrics in my head right now. Well at least it was done right on the deadline is all I can say right now.
