2023.05.30 22:30 gravygrowinggreen Two companies, two case studies in communication.

Last week, the developers at Ghost Ship Games released previews of a cosmetic DLC pack they planned on selling next month. The reaction to this cosmetic pack was mixed to say the least. People did not believe it was up to the usual quality standard of Ghost Ship Games. In light of that, this week, Ghost Ship Games released a new communications update on a central platform (Steam, with mirrored posts on Reddit and other forums).
They explained that the customers were right, and in light of that feedback, they had redone the cosmetics, with significantly improved details to make the guns stand out a lot more. They included a detailed video and image preview of the new cosmetics. And to top it all off, they promised to include both versions of the cosmetics in the upcoming content drop, with the old version of the paint job being included in the free update.
Note the steps taken in this communication.
  1. Admission of the issue.
  2. Detailed explanation of how the issue will be resolved, that leaves nothing to the imagination.
It is a simple formula. Only two steps. Of course, step 2 requires that a solution for the issue be in the works. Crucially, there were no announcements about the announcement. No "next week's" about how you'll hear more. No countdowns to patch notes. It is a strategy so simple, I'm only able to write this much about it. It is a good strategy. A strategy so good, that I, a very creative complainer and whiner, can't find anything to complain or whine about.
Now consider essentially 6 months of communication by Fat Shark. Let's track one issue. Crafting.
  1. In the first month of release, communications largely promised that a complete crafting system was coming soon. Some week in December (2022, being implied).
  2. What followed was a long period of chained in sequence "next week, we'll tell you more", cementing the phrase "next week" in darktide meme history.
  3. Eventually, after Catfish assumes the duties of community manager, and to her enormous credit, we get the "open letter". This was perhaps the closest Fat Shark has had to having good communications. Unfortunately, old habits die hard. The open letter identified issues (incomplete crafting system; unsatisfying progression loop; poor performance optimization), and at least implied a solution (delaying seasonal content rollout and the xbox series xls launch, while suspending the upcoming releases of premium cosmetics; in order to have a "sole focus" on addressing feedback). Things are looking up. A new communications manager has taken over, and communications appear to be if not great, at least significantly improved.
  4. Unfortunately, soon after this still somewhat vague letter, Fat Shark was back to its old habits. The crafting update came out, along with steady performance optimization. But open, candid communications slowly ceased. After the crafting update came out, Fat Shark has been virtually radio silent on the failure of that update to address the game's issues. If one were to go purely by communications by the company, it would be difficult to believe they even recognize those issues currently exist.
  5. Since the crafting update, the only post by u/Fatshark_Catfish that I can identify which acknowledges crafting is an issue is this But we still have a real lack of actual communication. Outside this one post, barely any mention of any issues the game has.
So what can we learn about Fat Shark's communication strategy? If it doesn't involve outright lies (as it did in December 2022 when they promised a completed crafting system in December), it involves deliberate silence, and a refusal to acknowledge any issues. Apparently, if you don't admit your game has flaws, you don't have to address them.
Compare the two companies. I have a reasonable idea about what exactly GSG has been working on based on their release schedule and communications to players. I have no idea what Fat Shark has been working on. It is left to my imagination, and my imagination suspects they've just been focusing on a console port, past messaging to the contrary be damned. Even if they are working on the console port as their sole focus, them openly, honestly acknowledging this would be preferable to their attempt to string an entire community along with a drip feed of content while pretending they're doing their best.
You know what would be most preferable? If they could simply, openly, and honestly, state what the community's issues with the game are, and whether they plan to do anything about those issues. Even if the answer with respect to our example, crafting, is "no, while the community believes that is an issue, we do not", this answer would be preferable to their current strategy of "silence and let the community fester in false hope". It would be more respectful to the players that they need for this game to survive. It would treat people as actual customers, rather than products to be deceived.
To be clear, I don't think any of this is u/Fatshark_Catfish's fault. If anything, the open letter that occurred after she took over the community manager position indicates that she knows how to do her job right. And her continued silence in the face of the game's numerous issues is a policy set by management. So this is a fat shark problem, not a catfish problem. Fat Shark would do well to actually let catfish do her job, if that is correct.
Anyways, rock and stone lads.

2023.05.30 22:30 Ekerslithery First thing I've seen chatGPT write that is somewhat dark

In a dimly lit room, the leader of a notorious criminal organization, known only as "The Baron," sat behind a large wooden desk. The room exuded an air of danger, with walls adorned by weapons and framed photographs capturing the faces of past victims. The Baron, a commanding figure with a scarred face and piercing eyes, wore a tailored suit that conveyed authority and power.
Before him, a disheveled figure stood with his head bowed, trembling with fear. This man, once a trusted member of the organization, had been caught leaking vital information to law enforcement agencies. His betrayal had put the entire operation at risk, and The Baron's wrath knew no bounds.
The room was filled with hushed whispers and the nervous shuffling of the organization's members, who stood along the walls, their eyes fixed on the impending judgment about to unfold. The Baron's voice, calm and measured, sliced through the tension-laden atmosphere.
"Daniel," The Baron's deep voice echoed, the weight of his words hanging in the air. "You were a brother to us. We trusted you implicitly, gave you access to our innermost secrets. But now, you stand before me as a traitor."
Daniel's voice quivered as he pleaded for mercy, his eyes desperately searching for any hint of forgiveness in The Baron's steely gaze. "Boss, I... I didn't mean for this to happen. I was scared, cornered. They had evidence against me. Please, give me a chance to make it right."
A sinister smile crept across The Baron's face, betraying the darkness that resided within him. "Oh, Daniel, you misunderstand. This isn't about giving you a chance to make things right. This is about consequences, the price to be paid for your treachery."
As The Baron rose from his chair, the room fell into a heavy silence. His movements were deliberate and calculated, each step exuding an air of dominance and control. He reached for a hidden panel on the wall, revealing an assortment of weapons: knives, handguns, and other instruments of pain and destruction.
Daniel's eyes widened in terror as he realized the true nature of his impending fate. His pleas for mercy grew more desperate, but The Baron remained unyielding. He approached Daniel slowly, deliberately selecting a gleaming silver knife from the assortment, its cold blade reflecting the dim light.
With a sudden flash of movement, The Baron struck, driving the knife deep into Daniel's chest. The room erupted with a gasp of collective horror, but The Baron's expression remained resolute, unmoved by the spectacle of blood and anguish before him. He withdrew the knife, and Daniel's lifeless body crumpled to the floor.
The Baron cast a commanding gaze over his subordinates, his voice cutting through the horrified silence. "Let this be a reminder to all who dare to betray our organization. Loyalty is not a commodity to be taken lightly. Those who betray us shall meet the same fate."
As the members of the criminal organization absorbed the chilling message, their fear mingled with a newfound understanding of the leader they followed. In that room, amidst the destruction of a mole, The Baron solidified his position of power, a figure to be both revered and feared in the criminal underworld.

2023.05.30 22:29 HeWhoShantNotBeNamed Can't connect App Service to SQL on behalf of user

ASP.NET app.
I've been trying and trying and facing numerous issues with all the different methods.
I use Azure Gov Cloud, so things are a little different.

When I connect from local debug, and use Azure Interactive Authentication, that's the only way I can get it to work. Obviously not good for a headless server.
I've tried this tutorial: Tutorial - Web app accesses SQL Database as the user - Azure App Service Microsoft Learn
And this: Tutorial: Access data with managed identity - Azure App Service Microsoft Learn
Both of them have some out-of-date information but either way it doesn't work in the end.

I sign the user in to their Microsoft account when entering the website via HttpContext.Current.GetOwinContext().Authentication.Challenge(new AuthenticationProperties { RedirectUri = "/" }, OpenIdConnectAuthenticationDefaults.AuthenticationType); 
And I have the right function at the beginning:
public void Configuration(IAppBuilder app) { IdentityModelEventSource.ShowPII = true; app.SetDefaultSignInAsAuthenticationType(CookieAuthenticationDefaults.AuthenticationType); app.UseCookieAuthentication(new CookieAuthenticationOptions()); OwinTokenAcquirerFactory factory = TokenAcquirerFactory.GetDefaultInstance(); app.AddMicrosoftIdentityWebApp(factory); factory.Services.Configure(options => { options.RedirectUri = "https://centralprod.azurewebsites.us/.auth/login/aad/callback";}).AddMicrosoftGraph().AddInMemoryTokenCaches(); app.UseMicrosoftAccountAuthentication("nunya", "business"); factory.Build(); } 
And I have my connection string:
"Server=tcp:a-server-that-is-not-yours.database.usgovcloudapi.net,1433;Initial Catalog=TheNameOfTheDatabase;Encrypt=True;TrustServerCertificate=False;Connection Timeout=30;"
And I open the connection string like so:
SqlConnection sqlConnection = new SqlConnection(ConnectionString); DefaultAzureCredentialOptions options = new DefaultAzureCredentialOptions(); options.AuthorityHost = AzureAuthorityHosts.AzureGovernment; DefaultAzureCredential credential = new DefaultAzureCredential(options); AccessToken token = credential.GetToken(new TokenRequestContext(new[] { "https://database.windows.net/.default" })); sqlConnection.AccessToken = token.Token; sqlConnection.Open(); return sqlConnection; 
Before using the Managed Identity tutorial I would keep getting the error "Login failed for user ''".
After adding the App Service to the database as a user that error stopped but it was logging in as the app, not as the user accessing the app with their Azure AD account.
So I used the managed identity tutorial and now I get the error " Login failed for user ''. Incorrect or invalid token. "
If you notice, there's an extra sentence at the end of the error.
I've been trying to get this to work for a month and am at my wit's end.

2023.05.30 22:29 flagrantstickfoul Is it possible to report a peer reviewer?

A couple of times now I've barely passed or failed an assignment because one of the reviewers is taking liberties with the grading system. It's the UX Design course; generally there are a list of things that we are trying to achieve in a given assignment. 1 point if the reviewer feels you satisfied the task, and 0 if you didn't.
This particular reviewer is somehow altering the code so that grades come back looking like this:
"0 points +0.5 points because of a tie"
...and then, when given the opportunity to add comments or suggestions, at the end they simply write "no"
My assignment meets all of the passing criteria. I don't know what this reviewer's issue is. They show as "anonymous reviewer" on my screen, but there appears to be a user number buried in the code.
Has anyone else experienced something like this? Is it possible to report the reviewer to Coursera? I can't believe this sort of thing goes unchecked.

2023.05.30 22:29 randomducker OBD2 finally arrived!! Thoughts on Leafspy readings

OBD2 finally arrived!! Thoughts on Leafspy readings
So after waiting nearly 2 months, I've finally got my hands on a working OBD2. I've included some images from Leafspy, and would appreciate feedback.
Background: I bought the car as a Japanese import from a local dealer. Unfortunately I wasn't able to get the OBD2 I purchased before buying the car to work with Leafspy, so essentially I rolled the dice based on 61,500km driven and 10 bars for this December 2016 30kwh model.
As far as I can figure, the software update has been done, it's unfortunately had it's fair share of quick charges, and I believe the battery looks to be relatively well balanced (correct me if I'm wrong).
After 3,000km since picking up the car it dropped to 9 bars (consistent with what I've read about the SOH around 72% dropping from 10 to 9), however I am a little concerned as to how many more km I could conservatively expect to get out of the Leaf considering it's an every day town car averaging 9.0km per kWh.
All thoughts and opinions welcomed 😃

2023.05.30 22:29 pwn3dbyth3n00b How do you guys do job interviews?

I feel like I have a weird anxiety where at this point it doesn't feel like I have SA but in very specific situations it is similar to the most EXTREME SA reaction I tend to see on this sub. The anxiety behind the thought of doing a job interview literally paralyzes my mind to the point I cant even take steps to put myself in that situation, which means I don't apply.
I don't have a fear of going places like the grocery store or public places. I can go to parties feel awkward for a moment but after a while assimilate in or end up playing with the dogs/pets. I have been "interview" like situations like when I volunteer at places and they literally put me in the office of the person in-charge and have a literal interview to see if I'm a good fit for the position. I when I replied to an email to be a TA for a class I had to go to the professors office and have a discussion to see if I was a good fit to TA.
But getting a job in my career field literally makes me panic, my heart rates, I end up literally having my hand shake and I just end up not doing anything. So I've been free-lancing work so I have to talk to clients to plan/set expectations/etc. I feel zero anxiety doing that stuff and I can communicate normally. It seems extremely irrational to be "normal" except for trying to get a job in the career field I wanted to go to. I've read/watched a bunch of stuff that makes me think its a trauma response but I've never had a negative experience with an authority figure, a teacher or anyone in the field or at my school. So it just messes with my mind with how irrational avoiding an interview feels like, maybe its the discomfort of doing something I haven't done before in an official sense that putting me off.
How do you guys just push through this stuff? I feel like I have no issue in an interview except when its directly related to the career I want to go to.

IGN: Xavrus
Type of appeal: Toxic Ban
Server: All
Warning/ban date: October 22nd 2021
Reason for the warning/ban: Spreading false rumors amongst the community to start drama
IGN’s of other people involved: Just me
Other relevant information: It was a complete mistake on my part. I hurt a lot of people I care about, caused a lot of pointless drama, and acted very immaturely about everything. People still use my name to annoy staff, or attempt at starting further drama, but I plan to put a stop to it either way. I believe I have matured since, and have stepped away from the toxic environment I was previously a part of. I hope I can prove to you guys that I am a better person than I was.

Looks: I think they are great in normal lighting. The suade looks off in natural lighting. But maybe the shoe comes that way. Someone can lmk. There's a lot of details I think are pretty spot on.
Size and Comfort: I would order a full size up. I'm 10.5 in AF1 and this is an 11. My toe hits the top sometimes. The react cushion is very comfortable. I've been rocking them at the gym. I believe this cushion is why the sizing is so off.
The breathability of the shoe is kinda weird. I think the originals would have way better airflow. Not a deal breaker tho.
Flaws: suade may be the wrong color but I can't tell for certain. In the last pic I included an online image that looks like the suade may actually be correct.
I told the seller the color is wrong and he just mocked me. He said he doesn't want to see pictures of my shoes lmfao.
Overall rating: 9/10 for indoor lighting. 5/10 for outdoor lighting. hoping someone can clarify.
I really like them even with the potential flaws. So unless I get terminally roasted today I'ma keep rocking them at the gym.

2023.05.30 22:29 thew0rldisquiethere1 How do I (28f) deal with a friend (30m) who needs constant validation all the time?

I moved to a new city alone a year ago and made a friend the day I got here and we've been friends ever since. He has some me talk health issues (depression and anxiety) exacerbated by the fact that he's never had a job before and lives with his parents. The thing is, he needs constant validation and it's starting to exhaust me mentally. He's so negative and hasn't gone a single hour (on average, I don't physically count) since we've met without insulting himself in some way so that I can refute it and validate him to boost his ego.
A few months ago, I was clear with him and told him it's not my job to give him that constant validation and that I won't do it anymore. Now when he says those things, I either just ignore it or bring up a new topic. I have been hospitalized for a s*icide attempt (wasn't sure if I could say that on this sub) when I was 19, and was in therapy for years and it saved my life, I can't go back to that, but this friendship is draining me and I'm starting to adopt his mindset when he isn't around and that's really bothering me. I told him this a few days ago. I obviously love parts of our friendship, and we have a great time together, until he sabotages and ruins it with these things. I don't know if I'm being insensitive, but it's really getting on my nerves.
It was my birthday 3 weeks ago, and he spoiled me with some gifts I absolutely adore and told him it was honestly the best gift I'd ever gotten, it was spot on. Every time I use it (at least twice a week since then), I send him a picture and tell him again how much I love it. We spent the whole of today together hanging out, playing games, watching movies, and then about an hour ago he looked at my gifts on the table and said, "Do you even like them?" So I said he knows I do, I tell him all the time. Then he gave me this look like he didn't believe me and said, "You say that, but you probably hate it and don't want to tell me the truth. I'm so stupid for getting you a stupid present you probably wish you could throw away." I gave him an incredulous look and just got up and calmly asked him to leave, saying I don't have the energy for this conversation right now. He left and just said, "sorry for being stupid like usual."
This all just seems so bait-y and I'm not going to spend my days recounting my thoughts and feelings on everything to placate him. It's never enough, this just proves my point. I gave him all the validation about the gift, and he still found a way. It's mean of me to say, but I wish I could only have the good/enjoyable parts of this friendship and not this soul-sucking stuff. The good isn't something I want to lose, but the bad isn't sustainable.
TL;DR: My friend needs constant validation and it's breaking me down mentally.

I feel like i’m just the dissapointment of the family and no one believes me. I left home at 18 and since then nothing went well, i feel like im just a drag and im honestly ashamed to even look them in the eyes. My siblings are all really smart about their decisions, im just screwing up everything. Well qt least i have been for the last 3 years. I really want to stop feeling like that but ive lost all credibility, i cant even believe myself. I dont know why i turned out this way, but its always spinning in my head and i feel like im going insane. I smile in front of them but all i want is to say im sorry for being a dissapointment of a son and of a brother, that i love them and that im really really trying to change. I wanna thank them for everything. That i love them, but it seems to be falling on deaf ears. I dont know if im just making a big mess out nothing or what but i honestly feel like i wont ever be looked at with pride and love again. Its all i got for them but i feel like if i disappeared, it wouldnt really change much except theyd have less to worry about

2023.05.30 22:28 Francesco_1_7 What from software taught me about life and success

A few years ago I played a soulslike for the first time, and I didn't expect that it could bring me such a radical change in thinking.
In life I am a university student and as many others know, the university world here in Europe, but I think also in the rest of the world, is very competitive and requires a very important effort to finish studies on time. In my first year of university on my first exam I took a 24/30 (history of law) I complained a lot because I thought I deserved more, but the fact that it was my first oral exam in a law falcoty, not only knowledge but also vocabulary and language were evaluated.
I was convinced that perhaps it would be difficult and perhaps impossible to achieve enough mastery of language to allow me to aim for the highest grade. Maybe I didn't believe in myself enough, but a few years ago a video game changed many things in me, especially one in particular.
it might sound trivial, but believe me it is not that trivial, because we all know that no one is born learned, yet sometimes we give up at the first failed attempt and convince ourselves that something is not for us.
The first time I fought the starved beast in bloodborne, I died 40 or so in a row, I could have convinced myself that I would never make it and that it is not for me that kind of game. With a metaphor I could say that it's like if on my first exam in legal history I had failed 40 times in a row, anyone would have changed faculties or jobs. all you have to do in life instead is just that, fail! I never thought I would be able to platinum bloodborne and every other souls, yet here I am and I feel like a champion in that, thanks to failure.
in life I realized whether it's at work or in college, you have to think that it's just like in a souls, you fail the exam and you fail, you respawn to the fire and you come back to fight and fail again and again until you succeed. Never be belittled by others, you just need to fail. Whenever I fail at something, I always think of souls. From software has managed to teach me that life is a game and therefore you need to make mistakes. thank you from the bottom of my heart.

2023.05.30 22:28 Austubisthegr8 I'm tired.

All I ever wanted was to be married and to have someone care for me the same way I care for them, but it's impossible. Every single relationship I've been in has ended within 6 months because they cheat on me with someone else while telling me that they'll be with me forever.. I don't understand how everyone around me can find someone, hell even multiple someones in the same year and they just stick together but I'm just used and tossed aside. Nobody wants to be with me. I'm not even ugly or an ass. I'm just different.. I'm taking care of my goddaughter and sacrificed a huge amount of my life raising her. Honestly she's the only reason I'm still here. But I don't want to exist anymore and play this endless game of heartbreak. I feel like there isn't one person out there for me.. Everyone tells me I need to work on myself and love myself. I do. I do nothing but work on myself and love myself and love others. My heart bleeds to have some of that love be given by and to someone else. It's not a linear thing like everyone likes to believe. I could be the perfect version of myself, try anything, and still nothing. Not even a consideration. The thing is I do love myself I believe I'm a good person who is willing to do anything for those he cares about. I accept myself flaws and all. Nobody's perfect. I just feel immense dread that I'll be alone forever. I'm told I just need to wait and someone will come to me. But that hasn't rang true for 4 years. And when I search for someone. Nobody wants me. Sorry for the long post. Tldr: dude is tired of being alone and is afraid of being alone forever.

2023.05.30 22:28 Glittering-Link-2715 should i (f19) break up with my boyfriend (m21) over a crush?

i cant believe i’m actually writing this but it needs to come out eventually…
so i’ve been with my boyfriend for 8 months but we’ve been talking for over 2 years at this point. we’ve had quite a lot of issues, due to me having severe bpd.
my boyfriend has tried to break up with me 3 times over the last 8 months for various reasons, one being he misses his ex. each of these times, i begged for him back, and he always ends up taking me back and making up with me.
now, my relationship with my bf is stronger than ever. he is so sweet, and lovely, and i love him. he is so mature when it comes to my disorder and we have so much fun together. when it’s me and him, i can’t imagine ever being with anyone else.
now to the crush i have a coworker (m25) who i feel a very strong connection with. when i met my bf 2 years ago i felt something similar to this but even at the start it wasn’t this strong. i feel something a lot deeper for my bf, but not really a spark. coworker and i get along so well and to be honest he reminds me a lot of my bf. i would be lying if i said i wasn’t attracted to him, and i find myself excited to see him.
i have no intention at all on acting on these feelings whilst in a relationship, and i truly do love my boyfriend, we’re great for each other.
i’m afraid if i stay with my bf then i will resent him for blocking me from exploring something that may be fateful, and even though my bf is so lovely now i’m still always afraid that he’ll wanna leave me again.
i feel like either way i will have regrets… either of losing someone who accepts my craziness which maybe i’ll never have again, or maybe my relationship is doomed anyway and by staying i’m pushing away what’s really meant for me.
TL;DR: i’m thinking of breaking up with my mostly lovely bf because of a connection i have with someone else.

2023.05.30 22:28 Fishwifeonsteroids Don't you 🅻🅾🆅🅴 the SGI necrotrolls who show up insisting they 𝘈𝘙𝘌𝘕'𝘛 SGI members when they obviously 𝐀𝐑𝐄???

Here's one that got their SGIsplainin' ass BANNED last week - from Why does SGI hate the Shoshu priesthood so much?, from THREE YEARS AGO - first, the OP they're replying to:
Over at the SGIUSA sub, they are discussing how members should just take what they want and leave what they don't about practicing Nichiren Buddhism under SGI.
Someone shared a Gosho quote basically saying that if someone has the same belief as you in NMRK, you should never fight with or even criticize that person.
https://archive.ph/BYmyg
The commenters take this to mean that SGI is accepting of its members being interfaith and practicing multiple religions.
But I've also read quotes by Nichiren that basically show he wanted to DESTROY all other sects of Buddhism!!! (These quotes have been linked many times, sorry not to link them again).
It seems that Nichiren was only protecting the followers of the Lotus Sutra and not other religions, though . So in our modern-day, we might say that Nichiren would have protected both the Shoshu priesthood and the SGI members.
But we all know how hard SGI has fought to keep the separation of the Shoshu and their own members. SGI is constantly belittling and criticizing the Shoshu. It seems pretty hypocritical, especially considering Nichiren wants protection of all Lotus Sutra practitioners, doesn't it? Source
So far so good? That post was from October 24, 2019 - over 3 1/2 years ago. Now here's from a mere FIVE DAYS AGO, from u/Mobile_Taro1969 (sounds like a BOOMER to me):
From what I have researched, SGI members grew the organization and were encouraged to make pilgrimages to Japan if possible.
No. Virtually ALL the money and members have always been IN JAPAN. All of the SGI properties are owned by the Soka Gakkai in Japan (via one or more of their many shell corporations distributed throughout the various countries of the world).
The SGI is NOT "growing"; it is collapsing. The SGI membership is aging and dying, just as the Soka Gakkai membership is in Japan. The Ikeda organization stopped growing everywhere in the mid-1970s.
Over time, their generous donations added up to billions - far exceeding most churches, including the Vatican.
Really? Show us the money, then! We all KNOW the Soka Gakkai hasn't given the lion's share of the money they have to Nichiren Shoshu (or anyone), and the Soka Gakkai has been very careful to NEVER disclose how much it is worth. So let's see your sources! I can't WAIT to see the details!! 😃
Seems the temple high priests felt it 'acceptable' to use the hard-earned donated funds for their frequent drinking parties with the opposite sex and other irresponsible actions.
Oh, really? I'm guessing you're going off those photoshopped pictures the Soka Gakkai mocked up and then got spanked for in court. You really need to do better research!
Whatever happened to Ikeda's 1990 supposedly "eternal" "clear mirror guidance", in which everyone is instructed to assume FULL PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY for everything that bothers them within their environment?? Hmmmm....? Since when has the SGI encouraged COMPLAINING about others?? You really should stop your complaining - Ikeda SENSEI says so!
Frequent requests to stop by the lay organization were ignored.
No, no - this was a power struggle in which Daisaku Ikeda thought he'd be able to take over Nichiren Shoshu and run it however HE wanted. THAT is the ENTIRE problem.
Also, prior to the burning of the Shohondo which was paid for by SGI members
You apparently don't realize that the Sho-Hondo was made of ferroconcrete - concrete reinforced with steel.
Do you really think that concrete and steel are flammable??? Have you ever tried to burn concrete or steel??? Here are images from the DEMOLITION. Enjoy.
[No "burning" was involved, moron. And it was the right thing to do.
the priests had instructed that the cremated ashes of members left in safeguard at the Shohondo, be dumped into rice bags like trash. I was in total disbelief to hear and read of such disrespectful actions - like watching a movie unfold.
Let's see the evidence. SGI members are notorious for making shit up and expecting everybody to just believe them.
Priests like that are not fit to be advisers and examples for others - they are no better than wild animals. The Japanese govt verbally reprimanded the temple priests for their lack of respect and compassion for the deceased and their loved ones. Unfit for their role as head priests, these money-hungry animals showed no remorse as their pockets were already filled they make me sick to my stomach!
Oh boo hoo hoo. EVIDENCE PLEASE
Not true. To set the record straight, their belief is that other faiths are outdated and there is only one true religion. Also, they do not teach to destroy other faiths - a ridiculous statement. (Not a member but I researched enough to know what are false statements.)
🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
SURE you're not, SkinBitchy! You're dripping with "I Will Become Shin'ichi Yamamoto!" energy!
Considering that most, if not ALL, the content you posted has been shown to be WRONG, your "research" obviously needs some work. Idiot.
"All religions except Nichiren Shoshu are evil and poisonous to society and must be destroyed." - All Three Soka Gakkai Presidents
Here are Jōsei Toda and Daisaku Ikeda (ever heard of them?) stating plainly that other faiths must be DESTROYED:
Toda:
Intolerance
It should be noted that in the immediate postwar era Sōka Gakkai’s extreme intolerance of other religious faiths did not change in the least. For example, on October 31, 1954, Toda Jōsei mounted a white horse (previously the exclusive prerogative of the emperor) on the Taisekiji parade grounds and addressed assembled members of the Young Men’s and Young Women’s divisions as follows:
In our attempt at kosen rufu [converting the entire world] we are without an ally. We must consider all religions our enemies, and we must destroy them. Ladies and gentlemen, it is obvious that the road ahead is full of obstacles. Therefore, you must worship the gohonzon (sacred scroll), take the Sōka Gakkai spirit to heart, and cultivate the strength of youth. I expect you to rise to the occasion to meet the many challenges that lie ahead. Source
The Soka Gakkai:
"All of orders and religions except Nichiren-sho-shu are heretical religion, and they poison society." - "Shakubuku-Kyoten," p286, edited by Soka-Gakkai teaching section and supervised by Ikeda Daisaku. Source
At the time of Toda's death Soka Gakkai numbered nearly a million followers. Under the leadership of the movement's third president, Daisaku Ikeda, Soka Gakkai's influence increased rapidly. He committed himself to continue Toda's policy 'to destroy other religions'. Source
Daisaku Ikeda:
My two hundred thousand comrades in the entire Kansai district, I hereby desire you to open a general attack under the command of Mr. Shiraki, the chief of the General Chapter[,] on the Tenrikyo, the stronghold of all heresy in the Kansai area. - Ikeda
I desire, therefore, that you, under the leadership of the Youth Division Chief open a general attack, starting this very day, on the Rissho Koseikai, which leads people to hell by delusory doctrines. - Ikeda
There it is. DOCUMENTED.
they do not teach to destroy other faiths - a ridiculous statement.
Here ya go:
Like his mentor, Toda was not speaking metaphorically when he urged the destruction of all other religions. Nevertheless, Sōka Gakkai representatives now claim things have changed. Source
They sure do. It is you and your beliefs that are ridiculous, and you should be ashamed of your LYING.
I am hereby inviting u/Mobile_Taro1969, who is banned from SGIWhistleblowers, to send me a private message with any response or comments, which I will post in its unedited entirety here in the comments, with a screenshot to show it is complete.
If anyone finds any more such necrotrolling, please bring it to the attention of one of the mods so that we can deal with it.

2023.05.30 22:28 ryuu_gs [TOMT] [ART] [2010s] Looking for a specific speedpaint of Israphel with a song similar to Bleach's Number One

Hey there! I'm looking for any lead on the artist behind this speedpaint or just finding out the song that played in it.
Sometime in 2013 - 2014 I found out about Israphel from Shadow of Israphel (yes, the YOGSCASTS series) and I did what I did for every cool thing I saw as a kid: I looked for speedpaint videos about him.
I found a speedpaint that I believe was divided in 2 parts. From what I remember, it was Israphel facing forward and placed on the left side of the canvas. He was drawn in a "realistic" manner (as in, not in the Minecraft style.)
In one of the parts of this speedpaint, there was a song in the background that sounded very similar to Bleach's "Number One" (specifically from 1:10 until the chorus) similar mood, genre and singer.
I don't think I ever found out the name of this song back when I watched this, in fact, I'm not even sure if it was a different song from Number One (although a large part of me thinks it was a different song.)
Finding out the mystery behind this song is what's most important to me, but finding this painting is easier, I believe, and might lead me to the artist, their channel, and so on.
Some things to help in the search: The art in question is not the album cover for the first volume of the soundtrack. It was a fanart. The way Israphel's face was drawn in the art is similar to this art, but he had red eyes.
This is more specific to the people who might have watched this speedpaint in question, but I remember the initial sketch was blue and the software used looked like Paint Tool Sai.
Unfortunately this is all I remember about this piece and the video. I don't know exactly how the background looked, but I do remember it having one. Something tells me it was black with some red details, but I am really not sure.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

2023.05.30 22:28 Ok-Psychology1934 I bonds interest rates

Can someone explain why the fed decreased i bond interest rates by about 3% when the bonds are inflation adjusted so shouldn’t their rates be rising with high inflation? Or does it have to do more with the speculative side of where we believe inflation will go? I just don’t get why internet rates are down but inflation hasn’t decreased at all…
