No, there have actually been numerous British attempts to reform the language, and their spellings have changed over time.

Why do they do these things? Because they’re stupid.
From what Google is telling me, it’s a symbol of authority (because they’d usually be judging the peasants, I guess) and simply hasn’t been updated in centuries. Then again, America is the only place that’s tried a spelling reform; British English still has vestigial ligatures that need eliminating, and it uses s as /z/ more than it actually uses z.

In fairness the United Kingdom has never been invaded, since the last invasion of the British Isles was before their formation. The people would be right if they used the right name.

So, genuine question: How in the heck did the internet get convinced that conservative-to-reactionary social opinions are “apolitical,” and anything disagreeing with those opinions is “political”?
Like, just to give a random example: talking points and memes expressing contempt/disgust of LGBTQ people, women, or the “blue hair” archetype get allowed into “no politics” spaces. I had to unsubscribe from a very popular YouTube meme compilation channel because of that. The final straw was when it uploaded a three minute long unedited skit from the Babylon Bee with the thrust that trans women are men pretending to be women so they can win at sports.

Perhaps it really is just that simple. I guess there’s a big part of me that really wishes the truth was more complicated.
You know, once upon a time I was planning to write an essay in which I laid out the innate futility and delusion of maintaining a politics-free online community. It never came to fruition, but it’s what I was planning to use that excerpt about South Park for that I shared wayyyyy further back in this thread. Innuendo Studios also touched on it in his magnum opus “How to Radicalize a Normie,” but he only skirted around the underlying mechanics since he was focused more on how Neo-Nazis can and have very successfully colonized geek spaces.

Just like we can’t forget about those that have no idea what AI is or how it’s used and just jumped on the bandwagon of hating it because that’s what the cool kids on Twitter are doing.

A new study of past policing activities has been released. It finds that “Police don’t solve serious or violent crimes w/any regularity, & spend very little time on crime control.” They spend more “time conducting racially biased stops & searches of minority drivers, often w/o reasonable suspicion, rather than ‘fighting crime.’”

Twitter activists really need to learn that forcing everyone to look at uncensored gore pics is not “activism”, it’s just insanely stupid behaviour
We all know that what is going on there is tragic, we don’t need your “help” by showing people getting their limbs blown off
(Reason I’m posting this is because there is a VERY graphic video going around lately from Palestine that’s been making its way to people’s timelines and a lot of people are calling out Pro-Palestine accounts for spreading it around with no censorship or trigger warning)

That’s why I’m being realistic and saying that companies trying to use it to replace employees instead of filling in the grunt work are idiots who are going to lead this to ruin, as well as people salivating at the mouth for AI are repeating the same mistakes they made with crypto/NFTs.

I prefer to hate it because I understand it, the limitations it has (that advocates are always glossing over or outright pretending don’t exist), and the downsides that have come from the push to integrate it into seemingly everything.

I also don’t use Twitter.
