You're alright. For the time being.

Because you've failed to realize that AMURIKAH is the only PURE DEMOCRACY out there, with everyone else exercising tyranny on their citizens and shielding their right to own guns and shoot shit.

You want be like them, admit it.

Don't make AMURIKA bring freedom to you. Just don't.

It is really fascinating. I noticed how American children are brought up with much more encouragement and accolade then Swiss kids. Gets them (and the adult) in a somewhat arrogant, superior feeling, but also very self confident groove. Which has many positive effects if not overdone, for example in the music world, which I know a bit, American artists are very self confident of what they do, dont fear to be different and as a result are more creative and better artists in a way. Certainly we can not generalize this, there are great artists every where but it is just something that stood out to me and Swiss are probably more self confident then Polish or Asian people form what you guys say.

Certainly something to keep in mind when raising children me thinks.

I think CD had a strong internet persona which introduced a lot of things that shaped the MTF environment and contributed to the general amusement. I can see how it can be very annoying but still it was mostly in a good spirit I felt. while others just let the hate flow basically. People that post mostly hateful things should be banned no matter if they use explicit language or not IMO.

I think this accumulated infraction rule leading to a permaban is pretty ridiculous.
It kinda is, on the other hand, mods need some kind of instrument to get rid of people that just keep on breaking rules. If I was a mod i would just ban people because they annoy me over and over again and people would hate me because they would feel it is subjective, which would be true here we have at least some kind of objective system. It is really your own fault if you get permabanned, as there are enough warning signs along the way.

Re: Attention Seekers Assemble Vol. Mayan 2012.

haven't even thought about it, but probably feels good, without the mix-ups and animosity that is usually directed towards the CD initials. But I'm not even sure if people will realize that CD1 is gone and stop using CD2.

what are you up to these days Nathii? Haven't you been looking for a new job?

His GOD BLESS THE USA!11!11!1OMG!1!!1!!1131 thing is seriously worthy. Sadly I like the US better than China. At least the US is on Taiwan's side, albeit not as much as before.

Don't forget how America is, like, totally the only true democracy because it was first nation to have rights blah blah blah, oh oops, I totally forgot we had slaves.

America is actually pretty fucked up. Its politics are such a mess. But I guess that's true for most places to some extent.

I read somewhere that constant praises could be bad for the kid because he doesn't really know where he really stands. It's like the other extreme to the Asian way of not praising the kid ever. I also read an article about how America tends to overinflate "achievements" and give out awards for crap, which actually have the negative effect of reducing their international competitiveness.

Or something.

I'd rather be told straight in the face that I suck at something than to be cuddled into a false sense of belief that I don't suck at it, so that when I grow up, I don't get a rude shock and have my sense of self-worth destroyed when I discover that I really suck at that something. I would like to be praised - constantly - for the things that I'm really good at too.

A sensible mix would probably be the solution.
