I ended up creating an account on rdrama after seeing some hilarious editorializing headlines on here, so I thought it would be fun if we did a monthly best headline contest. Pick your favorite headline from September with a link to the post as a comment below. 500 dramacoins go to the comment with the most upvotes and the person who submitted the post originally.
Contest will be open for one week from today.
Submission should look like this:
'Straight' Reddit virgin books bussy blasting appointment, entire life flashes before his eyes during post-nut clarity
The thread inspired this comic and impressive girl bulge: https://twitter.com/RexDraws/status/1467490512554840072
Hopefully Chappelle calling high schoolers losers is released as a bonus material for The Closer this week.
Black Trans Queen also withdraws lawsuit
The Russians are hacking the mainframe to make Kylie appear valid and supported
The new IOC framework, which replaces its 2015 guidelines, also concludes there should be no presumption that trans women have an automatic advantage over natal women – a controversial view that reverses the IOC’s previous position.
Outside of the new competitive birthing category looks like legacy women need to find different aspirations.
School Board guy is keeping photos, screenshots and lists of parents he hates on his google drive. Also includes Social Security numbers, financial information and divorce records of parents. School Board guy does a pro-gamer move and accidentally has the link to the google drive show up in a message to a parent. Parent's get a hold of it and try to have him ousted. Denies that he is the one that owns it because his wife can also use google drive.
Even though Mark Greenburg is listed as the Google Drive owner, records from an Aug. 17 special SUSD board meeting show Jann-Michael admitted sharing a computer with Mark. With Mark and Jann-Michael Greenburg sharing a computer and a home, there is no way to know which of them has been uploading files (now known as the “G Files”) to the drive, according to concerned parents.

Also it turns out his father has access to the computer not his wife, but I like this title so I'm leaving it.
Pick an average redditor thread of choice. Sort by controversial. Post how many comments you had to scroll through before you got bingo
Never thought I'd see the day that Ted Cruz speaks coherently for 10 minutes. Retweeted by the Daily so I'm expecting a lot of seethe in the twitter roundup.
Relatively tame discussion with some minor outrage. Some highlights from the thread:
Remembering in-person meetings, half of the “participation” was asking to get back one slide before to check a point that went too fast, questions on points that are dealt with two slides further, people getting asked questions as a punishment for being visibly bored to death, and facts that could be checked by a 10s document search but would seem rude to be looking for right now.
If only the presenter had a backbone and could ask people to hold their questions till the end.
Turning the camera off is just a socially acceptable way of not showing up.
Classic slacktivist protest to being forced to attend a meeting
Why do you think that someone with a camera off is not present? How can you honestly equate camera-off with absence?
My, my someone's defensive. Perhaps the same reason they make school children turn their cameras on to verify they're actually paying attention and not wasting time.
What's wrong with with someone turning off their camera and eating a snack while developers dive into the weeds for 15 minutes?
Can't go a single meeting without snacking
Well, business folks have very different world views and preferences for communication style/content than self-organizing geeks, wouldn't you say?
18 months later I LOVE video calls. I love the fact that I'm in my own comfy quite space, I love the fact that I can move from standing to sitting and back without distracting those on The calls. I love that I can turn my video and mic off and have a pace around or eat some food.
I get the feeling they would enjoy having a hamster wheel installed in their domicile
I don't feel the same way. I connect with my colleagues fairly easily, video or not. I was also raised in a world with gaming and IRC, so having to pay better attention to tone and phrasing inferences is second nature to me.
You may have developed a case of the autism buckaroo
Personally I have started leaving the camera on because it’s incredibly tempting to just use my phone and tune out with the camera off. I have also noticed that camera off people tend to speak a lot less than those with it on.
A comment by "Gigachad" with some common sense
I think you're implying causality from camera off to speaking less
correlation doesn't imply causation! Sure showed that Gigachad
I've put some effort into my setup in the past 24 months; multiple Elgato and Hue lights, a Streamdeck for macros and scene control, condenser microphone on an arm with an audio interface, OBS studio etc.
I can respect their dedication, it's a little overboard but I'm glad it helps them feel better and is a lot more productive than all the ones seething about having the camera on.
I have no problem with real-life meetings, but in virtual meetings I always feel on edge because it's impossible to know who's looking at me, because sight-lines don't work.
Turning the camera on literally gives PTSD
I know this just from a Twitch streamer I watch. He'll occasionally have to stream with the camera off because having the camera on takes a lot of energy
Hardest job in America
