But what is intelligence but merely a tool to throw poignant remarks at one another? A series of hit-or-misses of landing a joke, or showing for how vastly superior your response is compared to someone else's? Ultimately, it all comes down to people just having too much time on their hands.

You know what you need on your hands right now?

Go fap to twilight sparkle as I'd be more productive than whatever you were saying to some dumb idiot that noone would care more than a second about.

Ai 'artists' are flooding derpi and it's being imported. Half the time they can't tag their shit with ai, what the fuck is going on

At what point is the generative-ai slop not allowed? How much of this worthless, soulless sewer waste going to be allowed? When will it take up more site and server space then real art? Where is the line. This sludge isn't and never will be art. it is nobody's responsibility to save this. It's a grafted rotten mess of stolen art from others thrown into a machine just to see what comes out. It has no historical or sentimental value worth protecting, 'just filter it' when does it get too good to spot? How will I filter it then? No it should be removed and cut out like the cancer it is

If it is too good to spot as AI, how do you expect me to delete it? The simple answer is like the image you see on the screen or don't. You use the tools at your disposal to get rid of the things you don't like client side. You have not only a filter available, but a hide image button as a fail-safe. If you want a different policy, you are going to have to use a different site. Your argument about historical, sentimental, value, and soulful significance is irrelevant to our policy.

You know people are just as snobbish towards digital art in general, right? They say many of the same things.

If it's freely available on the public internet, then those resources are not stolen. Once the pandora's box of "letting the world see the things that were drawn" is opened, it can't be closed.

Moonatik. Everyone knows he's a commie sperg, but his most recent spergout made me decide to stop following him.

i saw a golden opportunity for a little bit of trolling and drew this. my reply was captioned:

shitbrained morons like yourself are useful idiots for capital, emphasis on idiot. the international fraternity of workers will usher in a new world devoid of your racist brainworms. i dance on your führer's shallow grave, and his supporters should follow his example.

He certainly seems like a reasonable, mature, emotionally stable adult who grasps nuance and isn't the least bit delusional.

As someone who has encountered this dude in public, these kind of tough guy rants are hilarious when compared to his sniveling, corner-hugging demeanor and "weakest guy in the room" body type. Guy can't even go outside without his matching emotional support mask and leggings but talks big game about punching nazis on the internet.

The last time I saw him he was wearing pink and white fag socks and a pink and white mask with a blushing :3 face. Only one there that refused to take the mask off like a turbopussy. I've seen him a couple times but couldn't describe it the other time if it was different, that was 2 years ago or something like that. This is the guy who's going to lead the "Worker's party" from the frontlines btw.

I've seen him in public too and your description is very spot-on!
But you don't even need to encounter him irl to know that he lives his entire life on the internet.

Which con were you at, by the way?

Harmony '22 and '23 were my only cons so far, since I've got a lot of people I wanted to meet with that go there. I really wanted to go to MF last year but unfortunately didn't have the money for it at the time, and this year will be too busy for me. Sad times.

Things like what you're describing are most of the reason I no longer go to cons. I have never been very social anyway. I've seen cringetastic things that made me sad inside instead of amused. ("I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Obese bronies milady-ing on electric scooters. I've seen fedoras glitter in the dark in the hucksters' room…")
