Suggestions & Concerns / Request: 'delete' all previous bans
« on: November 08, 2020, 03:02:30 AM »
Hello my beloved mods & admins


As we all know, if somebody gets banned for the same reason multiple times, the lenght of the ban increases exponentially. The idea behind that is understandable. The issue that I have recently witnessed is that now ban times are getting ridiculously high (check recent bans). Considering traffic for the forum is on a all time low, makes it even worse. Also it can lead to users permanently leaving the forum, because after a ban lasting quite long you have no idea whats going on in the forum and need lots of time to read up on threads, which is too much fo4 some people.

Thus I suggest that right now and after a fixed timeframe (e.g. all 6 months or so), previous bams shall be 'forgotten' and thus reset the ban times to the minimum again.

He sure has many risk factors, but the best docs will look after him and he's still reasonabely healthy.

Also I believe he has been exposed to a rather small amount of virus which makes it more likely for him to have mild symptoms only.

How do you think him getting the corone will affect his politics?

The Lounge / New posts per day statistic?
« on: September 22, 2020, 01:34:12 PM »
Hello

I feel like since disputeone, rabinoz, wise, bom tishop etc. are no longer active, the forum has pretty much died. There are only very few entertaining discussions going on compared to how it used to be; overall I feel like there are way fewer posts per day than there used to be.

Is this only my subjective feeling or is it true? Is there any statistic on posts/day during the last weeks, months, years?

Suggestions & Concerns / Mods/admins bullying users due to personal issues
« on: September 09, 2020, 08:15:28 AM »
Hello dear admins

Unfortunately, a mobbing culture in the FES can be observed recently:

I have been muted (unable to post, send pms etc) without receiving a pm stating the reason for it and without anybody telling me for how long I will be muted. Thus I have used the only still working feature to contact moderation: the report function.

But Boydster then wrote this post:
I have great news to share! DNS is reading this thread avidly, so we can still communicate with him.

DNS, I have something important to tell you. Stop abusing the report function while you are muted or I will ban you, ok?

Clearly asking me a question- keep in mind, I had no way of answering except by using the report function. Boydster knew this very well.
I answered to his question in the only way I was able to (=using report function), resulting in this:

boydster banned him for abusing the report this post thing.

Seriously?!

I was being muted simply for bullying and baiting reasons in the first place. Mods/admins were muting me to bait me into a) creating alts or b) abusing the report function, so that they'll then have a reason to ban me.

The Lounge / Tinder sucks
« on: August 13, 2020, 12:49:42 PM »
So a friend girl of mine basically forced me to install that tinder thing.
Simultaneously, another friend (female) installed it aswell.

We both did some random swiping, and we both had basically no infos and semi-decent pics on our profiles.
She got instantely like 10+ matches and 5 guys writing her. I got like 3 matches, noone writing first.

Like, wtf is this shit? But I guess this is what happens when you consider that males are just way hornier on average compared to women.

But to be fair, if you're searching for a relationship, it's probably equally hard for men as it is for women.

The Lounge / I am leaving the BOTD
« on: August 03, 2020, 12:22:15 AM »
The BOTD started out as a pure, democratic, anti-fascist and anti-racist group of friends. Unfortunately, over time the group became corrupted: Members wishing death upon other members that were in serious conditions and eventually passed away (wise), other members became brainless spamtrolls (shifter), some show racist/facist tendencies (disputeone) and so on.

It thus want to distance myself from the BOTD (brotherhood of the dumb) and am therefore leaving the group!

I wish the remaining members of the group all the best, may they come to peace with themselfes and do what is right!

I already tried reporting some of his posts, but apparently mod's don't care about him and for some reason he never faces any consequences. And since I usually receive warnings/bans when I report too many posts, I had to open this thread.

Right now, he's spamming in at least 3-4 threads, the same shit everywhere. Here's some examples of his spam (literally the same bullshit in differen threads, sometimes the same crap in the same thread copypasted):

Others have been banned and/or locked away for way less.
I suggest to lock him in AR for one month or ban him for 2 weeks. (or even better: ban for 2 weeks then lock in ar for one month).

The Lounge / My coming out!
« on: July 14, 2020, 02:15:33 PM »
Dear members of the FES

This is a very emotional moment for me.
I had a very long private discussion about the earth's shape with the space cow girl.
She told me to 'just look outside your window, and tell me if it looks flat or like a globe'.
I tried to resist, but then I succumbed to the urge. I looked outside. And guess what - it all looked flat. No curve visible!
After that I meditated for hours, ate an avocado and some lentils, went for a run and sorted my thoughts. I then came to the conclusion that the only explanation for the above is that the earth is, in fact, flat and not a globe!

I am now, officially, a flat earther!

Technology, Science & Alt Science / Does anyone know how R works?
« on: July 10, 2020, 01:25:21 PM »
I am supposed to make a shitload of graphs and stuff with R. I have never used it. Wasted like 4h now already, have absolutely no idea how that piece of crap works. I can manage to import my data into RStudio so it shows my data in a table on the top left. But I havent yet figured out how to do anything with that.
Where do I start? I tried some youtube stuff but nothing helped.

14
I put a serious tag in the title because scg locked me into angry ranting and thus I can't post it at another place, but this is a very serious topic. Of course I can't force you to accept it but I kindly ask you to.


Question to be discussed is in the titel:
Why is it legal and even considered okay to watch videos of some crimes (including war footage) but not others?

Examples:
It is illegal/considered immoral to watch a video where a person gets raped, especially if the person is underage.

It is usually considered legal/ok to watch violent crime videos, including murderer. Just a few minutes ago, I found a video in a comment on reddit (frontpage post) that shows someone getting murdered (hit by a car). The comment had over 3000 upvotes.(news story about the incident)

That kinda made me question the ethic behind all of this.


Oh, and before anyone comes and missinterprets this on purpose: I am not saying rape videos etc. should be legal and considered okay to watch, I'm questioning why videos of people dying/getting murdered or other crimes are legal and considered no big deal.

15
On your profile, you can select your gender.
It only allows for two options: Male-Female.

I suggest adding a third option 'other' to make sure nobody gets discriminated against and everybody feels accepted. This is already standard on every other site I know and should have been implented on the fes a long time ago.

Thank you.

Hello

As we all know, sometimes people randomly get banned by certain mods. But I'm not here to complain about that. My issue is that if one suddenly stops writing and I then wonder what happened - did the corone get him? Is the guy ok? etc.

I suggest that there should be a public list with all the people that are banned, includinge the remaining lenght of the ban as well as the reason for the ban (which must include proof, thus a link to the post that lead to the ban.


Thank you and have a nice day

Fact ist:
- News were only reporting about the corone, because nothing else was going on due to the lockdown.
- People got bored reading only about the corone - likely numbers of visitor and thus ad revenue declined.
- The protests give both left and right and center media very nice story with LOTS of clicks. People love being outrage, be it for one or the other side.
- New media (youtube etc) are getting more and more important while old school news are getting less important.
- News reported get attacked on a regular basis, giving their media more attention

Everyone can draw his own conclusions out of this  :)

19
If you compare how the lockdowns look vs. how the numbers are going down, one can easily see how smart people in different countries are!


Very smart
Sweden
Cases are steady/going down even though there is no lockdown --> population understands the issues and does good social distancing!


Switzerland
They have only a soft lockdown, but cases decrease exponentially - very smart!



Smart
They have hard lockdown, cases are decreasing accordingly

Italy


Spain


Dumb as hell
They have quite hard lockdowns, but numbers are still on a VERY high level. And yet the people already want to reopen - wtf?
It should be noted that most usa people are originally from the uk. Could this be genetic retardedness?

USA

I am widely considered an expert in the field of "debunking bullshit". Enjoy!

Claim to be debunked
The death toll from coronavirus may be almost 60 per cent higher than reported in official counts, according to an FT analysis of overall fatalities during the pandemic in 14 countries.
Source: https://www.ft.com/content/6bd88b7d-3386-4543-b2e9-0d5c6fac846c


How to debunk
Idea: If there is an underreporting, then there should be more deaths in 2020 than in 2019, 2018, 2017 and 2016 AFTER I subtracted the reported corone deaths.
Step 1: Add together all deaths in week 1-17 in years 2016-2020 (mortality data from 24 countries)
Step 2: Calculated how many corone deaths those 24 countries have reported
Step 3: Subtract the corone deaths from the reported deaths in 2020
Step 4: Compare the number for 2020 to the numbers in 2016-2019 to see if there are still excess deaths
Step 5: If there is in fact an underreporting, then the deaths in 2020 (reported - corone deaths) should still be quite a bit higher than the death rates in 2016-2019.

Result
2020: 1085243 (all deaths) - 116470 (corone deaths) = 968773 deaths
2019: 984589 (all deaths)
2018: 1026022 (all deaths)
2017: 992529 (all deaths)
2016: 933109 (all deaths)

This means, that without the corone, in 2019 there were 15816 deaths more, in 2018 there were 57249 deaths more, in 2017 23756 deaths more and 2016 was the only year with less deaths (35664).

Conclusion
There is a death excess in 2020 due to the covid-19 pandemic. After substracting the corona deaths, the mortality in 2020 is below the 2016-2019 average. This could be purely random or maybe due to fewer deaths because of the corona lockdowns (less accident, less influenza deaths etc). Using their own method, there is no evidence for corona-death-underreporting.

Therefore, my claim that ft.com is to be considered 'unscientific trash' is now a proven statement.

The Lounge / What was your first post in the FES?
« on: April 21, 2020, 08:33:21 AM »
I thought it'd be interesting to collect what was our first post when we came to this forum.


Here is my first post:
I recently found some flat earth videos on youtube and found myself fascinated by them. It's not actually that I thought the fe model would be in any way convincing, but it's interesting to see what kind of people actually believe it.

In found that there are roughly two "categories" of people:

1. Low to mid level intelligence combined with no or bad education. Can easily be detected when you hear stuff like "But if the earth spins with xxxx m/s at the equator, how comes I can jump and land at the same place? Those people might be trolls tho.

2. Mid level up do seemingly decent intelligent people with often not too bad education. Those people sometimes have created their own world-view, which is often working on first glance. So I somehow admire their dedication to flat-earth.

Now I wonder: Are here any people  that do actually belive in flat earth?
How comes you do believe in flat earth, since it can actually be disproven easily?
What makes you feel you need an alternative view of our world/universe? Is it just the urge to be more than one small human in the whole universe?


Also, this reminds me that it's quite a pitty that Jroa isn't here anymore  :'(

Edit: First result from april was 3 for and 2 against a mandatory vaccine.

Do you guys think the vaccine (once it's found) will be mandatory?

If so, would it bother you?

If it wasn't mandadtory - would you still get it?

23
It's a pretty simple analysis:

First let's take a look at italy and their cases




THE NUMBERS HERE ARE WRONG, IT HAS BEEN SHOWN THAT THE TIME BETWEEN HOSPITAL ADMISSION (DIAGNOSIS) -> DEATH IS AROUND 8.5 DAYS.
HERE ARE THE UPDATED NUBMERS: https://www.theflatearthsociety.org/forum/index.php?topic=85233.msg2242783#msg2242783
The method used here still remains the best & most accurate one available.


1) Time from onset of symptoms --> death is in average 18 days (from a study in china)
So, the people that got symptoms 18 days ago would approximately now be the ones that are dying.
18 days ago, italy got around 600-700 cases per day.
Currently, there are more than 600-700 people dying per day. Considering that it's likely the average time from symptoms->death to be a bit lower in italy (not enough respirators, oxygen etc), and that the cases registered were probably already sick for a few days (time delay from symptom onset -> being a registred case), it'd make sense to take 13 days as a educated guess for the time 'registred case' -> 'death'. This puts the number of cases/day (from 13 days ago) at around 1400. This gives us a lethality of around 50%.


2) Looking at the numbers of 'recovered' vs 'died' then they are almost equal. This means, about the same amount of people are recovering as are dying (45%).


Limitations
-For point 1: If the time from symptoms->recovered is longer than symptoms->death it would distort the data towards higher values of lethality.
-For point 1 and 2: Non-registred cases or asymptomatic cases would distort the data towards higher values of lethality.

So apparently students (that are useless for society anyways!) have decided it's now a good time to go to spring break partys!

What punishment do you suggest?
I will add it to the poll.

Philosophy, Religion & Society / Our economy is fundamentally flawed
« on: August 12, 2019, 03:05:09 PM »
Fiat currencies like the USD or EUR are based on the premise 'some inflation is good'. So for example the USD has like 5% of the value (purchasing power) it had about 80 years ago (compared to gold it looks even worse).

This inflation is supposed to make people buy stuff and invest their money (because otherwise it's becoming worthless).
Unfortunately, this 'spending mentality' is not realistically compatible with stopping global warming and having a clean, sustainable planet for further generations.
I think if we ever want to reach said goal, major changes are required. Possible would be
-strict laws concerning un-ecological decision making (not liberal = I don't like it too much)
-create a 'frame' which supports ecological decisions
-have a republican 'i dont care, kek' opinion (=be a retard)
-remove inflation (not easy in reality, creates other problems aswell)


Opinions?

Technology, Science & Alt Science / SHOULD I BUY BITCOINS?
« on: June 29, 2019, 08:50:56 AM »
Hello everyone,

As you all know, I'm quite rich but still could use some money.

Do any of you own bitcoin? Or trade with bitcoin? Are you successful with it? Any tips?

Due the constant decrease of 'classic' evolutionary pressure, our genome will inevitably degenerate. Modern medicine leads to more and more people with bad genetics having children and thus passing this genes to new generations.

I think it's our responsibility to counter this by using eugentics and correcting bad genes (e.g. deltaf508 mutation). It should be free and available for everyone.
We already do something similair by using pre implantation genetic diagnosis, but that's not enough.

Opinions?
