The only logical conclusion I can draw is that people egging the protesters on don't actually care. They most likely see the US economy and black lives as collateral damage to be suffered by the weak and the poor for the sake of whatever their cause is.

No.

But I do think Twitter's 280 character limit can piss right off.

^ That is a timeline of brain cells dying.

See it's a downright affront to waste another Twit's time on more than one dimension of an idea, because multiple tweets are a pain to deal with, and there's already limited space to get your punch in for the team. You've certainly not got enough space for nuance or calm, rational discussion... but they have provided a handy ego breadcrumb counter, so that a bunch of people you don't really know can assess your opinions for you, in real time.

It's a pretty damn efficient social conditioning tool, when you think about it.

Could the timing just be a coincidence? It may be eczema, if you're prone to allergies.

If the rash has also appeared on your toes or torso, you might want to get to a doctor. There are numerous recent reports cropping up in the news about possible Covid related rashes on otherwise healthy patients.

Could also be fungal I guess. Probably helps to be showering as frequently as possible, in any case. Washing sheets daily and cleaning your living space thoroughly might be another reasonable precaution, since some infections can be really hard to get rid of otherwise.

*edit* Oh yeah, and vitamin C, lots of sunlight and natural sources of vit D (fish, pulses) also help with infections.

Got to question the wisdom of gathering all your city's black folks in one place during a pandemic, especially since black people are 4 times more likely to die from Covid, in a way that apparently can't be attributed to existing health issues or income disparity.

Incidentally, the body's ability to synthesise vitamin D -- essential for a healthy, functioning immune system -- is directly related to skin pigmentation.

So please, make sure you're eating plenty of oily fish, whatever your skin colour, but particularly if you're darker skinned.

Speaking generally, and violence aside, I guess it helps to have an agenda and specific demands if you really don't want to get dismissed as a riot.

Not going to improve if you're not playing outside your comfort zone. Last minute quitters can get F'ed.

The most active on the site for sure, but nothing like the glory days of the late 2000's. There were days where if you posted a new thread, it would be on the second page within the hour.

But thank Gamespot for their draconian ToS, some volunteer mod staff that take their jobs *way* too seriously and the site owners trying to push everyone towards the comment sections on their "news" articles rather than an open forum for discussion for the drop in traffic.

Good point. Hadn't thought of that. I wonder if hotlinking article comments sections straight into mirrored forum threads would increase traffic for both.
