Most murderers are from lower class of the society?
I just read in another thread about female murders and it appears to me that most murders are perpetuated by people from the lower rungs of society. I say most because obviously there are exception to every rule.
Agree. Concentration camps aren't always a bad thing.
Not true. In our society, they are mostly from the top 1%.
Honestly, I would wager that most VICTIMS are from the lower classes of society, but most MURDERERS are from the higher classes. Poor people who grow up showing unstable behavior are marginalized fairly quickly; whereas crazy people who are fairly well off are allowed to exhibit reckless behavior for a while before anyone starts to raise red flags.
ANOTHER idiot thread slamming poor people? Are you fucking kidding me?
Of COURSE people living in the most challenged and challenging, most broken, most disenfranchised part of our or any society are involved in the greatest rates of violence, both as perpetrators and victims. What kind of smug, unthinking mindset acts as if this is either noteworthy or indicative of anything except how fucked people are when they are born without advantages?
And, asshole, just try to remind yourself that of course it's the poor who also get the worst representation in the legal system, so watch your filthy mouth and mind as you dribble your little turds around the DL.
Depends on how you define murder, OP. Wars and genocides usually originate with the privileged and powerful, not the down and out.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
