Goddamn Sli.mg. I had used them for all the images in that post and because sli.mg is dead they're dead too. I'll dig around on my old computer and see if I still have those images and will post them in this comment so the old post will make sense.

The Sli.mg Shoah wounded us all, I think.

Not really. If anything it taught all of us goats a very valuable lesson, and allowed others (multiple people) to form their own services that anyone can freely utilize. Adapt and Overcome.

Much was still lost, and I posit my original statement stands alongside your second sentence.

Alright. You be the pessimist, and I'll be the optimist, today. We'll switch when it feels right.

Pessimist?

Is the above pessimistic or optimistic? It seems rather realist to me.

It hurt us or it helped us. It can't have done both. I'm a sith - I deal in absolutes, apparently.

The two aren't mutually exclusive. A burn from a stove both hurts and helps a child, does it not? A friend thief in our childhood takes our property, but teaches us a valuable lesson for the future, no?

I understand, but the quantitative value of the setback can be greater or less than the quantitative value of the lesson. If the child loses the arm to the stove, or a childhood friend steals our innocence, the value of the setback is much greater than the value of the lesson.

I believe that the death of slimg happened at an early enough time in voat's existence that didn't hiccup the community; Where as if the community were larger, more established, the death of slimg could have had a greater damaging effect, and caused a strife among the community of voat as a whole. This is purely hypothetical, and ignoring the existence of reddit/imgur.

Btw, I only half believe what I just wrote, I am just arguing for the sake of arguing.

I merely stated it was a wound. Despite that, even calling it a "setback" is not innacurate, IMO. I don't believe many would think I was referring to a high degree using either word.

I recall a bit more than a hiccup. Much of both the informational, political, entertainment, and voat-specific images were lost. If it were the only trusted source now and disappeared, I would definitely characterize it as more than a hiccup, but that comparison was not something I endeavoured to make.

I find the latter to be utterly satisfying in most cases.

Happy to spar with you on the subject.
