2023.06.08 16:27 good_guy_judas Helltide boss drops

In Helltide there is a roaming boss called Xirrath the something I forgot. It is lvl 72 in T3. So way beyond what you are 99% of the time.
This thing is harder to kill than the worldbosses and has more lifebars too. I spent few monutes or so trying to kill him thinking solo is probably impossible, but luckily slowly people joined. It took 5 of us and another 10 minutes. When he is at 1 lifebar he starts one shotting you if you dont pay attention. This is taken from 10 minutes of time that could be spent Helltide farming mind you. I can get a 150 chest in that time.
The damn thing drops 1 rare, some oubles and blues, and not even a sacred rare drop. No achievement no nothing.
Whats the point of this boss except for ignoring it when you see it?
Am I missing something? Was I just extemely unlucky with the drops? No way am I going to try and farm this boss ever, its just such a chore.

2023.06.08 16:27 madameharpy My Partner is Getting FFS Right Now. I'm in Mourning and Feel Alone

English is not my first language, so I'm sorry if there's any errors.
My partner of 10 years, who is MtF, is getting facial feminization surgery as I write this. I don't want to make this about me, but I feel like I'm invisible, my feelings aren't valid, and I have no one to talk to who understands. Our mutual friends are all sending support and love her way, but no one has asked how I'm doing. I reached out to some friends to talk, but it's mostly just generic "I'm sorry you're feeling that way" or "it'll be alright." I know they're trying, but they couldn't possibly understand what this feels like.
I was against this surgery since the beginning. She knew I was. However, she fought so long to get this approved and it was so sudden when it was. They just gave us a little over two months to prepare. "Here's your surgery date, see you then!"
Our relationship survived a lot. When we first started dating, she identified as and looked male. About 4 years in, she came out and started hormones. It was difficult for me to handle, but we stayed together and got married. Later on, she got gender confirmation surgery, which really affected our sex life. She told me she was never going to get that surgery, but it happened. It was really difficult to get through this time and we almost didn't make it.
However, we've been going strong since. I love her more than anyone. I can't imagine my life without her. She's my partner, my best friend, and my love. I want nothing more than to grow old with her.
But her face changing is the last thing that I have left of her before it all. I feel like she's taken away all that I initially fell in love with and now she's taking the last thing left.
I'm in absolute mourning and I just didn't mentally prepare myself for it. I didn't know how. I don't think I've ever properly mourned the person I first fell in love with. I do go to therapy, but I have so much to work through that that took a back burner.
After several more hours, I get to see her all bandaged up and groggy. I can't spend the night with her, but I will bring her back to the hotel tomorrow. I will have to take care of her by myself, away from my support system and home.
I feel so weak. I've been crying alone in the hotel. Her face will be different forever. I'm scared and so sad. I know her face won't matter ultimately because I love her as a person but it's a drastic and sudden change!
So, yeah. That's it. This is my life. I'm mourning alone and I have no one in my life who understands. I have to be strong for her, I know. I'll do my best. I always do.
Anyways, even if no one reads this, I just needed to put this out there.

2023.06.08 16:26 oopsie-daisey How can I end a long-term friendship?

This is my alt because they know my main. I posted this a while ago & deleted it because I got nervous.
I am a very non confrontational person. I’ve known my friend since freshman year of high school (now we are both 23). I feel like our worldviews drastically changed in college and now they are someone who I am having a hard time staying friends with. It hasn’t been any one action that they’ve done, but many actions that have built up over the years.
Another good friend of mine just suggested I let it fizzle, but I am also unsure how to do that. They are the type of person to be persistent, and they have called me their ride or die in the past.
What’s the best way to end something with so much history without being an asshole? I mean, I know that someone is going to be hurt here if I stop the friendship, but is there a kind way to go about this?

2023.06.08 16:26 BillReel The Evidence Laid Out That Joseph Smith was the Founder of Polygamy PART 3 FINAL

The Evidence Laid Out That Joseph Smith was the Founder of Polygamy PART 3 FINAL
F.) Nauvoo Expositor The only issue of the Nauvoo Expositor published on June 7th and was a 4 page publication. According to William Law, Smith had made several proposals to Law's wife Jane, under the premise that Jane Law would enter a polyandrous marriage with Smith. Law's wife, Jane, later described Smith's proposals, saying that Smith had "asked her to give him half her love; she was at liberty to keep the other half for her husband." On January 8, 1844, Smith removed Law from the First Presidency. On April 18, 1844, Law and his wife were excommunicated from the church, along with his brother Wilson Law, a brigadier general in the Nauvoo Legion. Also excommunicated were Robert D. Foster and Howard Smith. The publishers of the Expositor were William Law of the First Presidency, and his brother, Brigadier General Wilson Law of the Nauvoo Legion, Charles Ivins, Col. Francis M. Higbee of Nauvoo Legion, and his brother Chauncey L. Higbee, Brothers Robert and Charles Foster. The editor was Sylvester Emmons, a non-Mormon member of the Nauvoo City Council.
  1. front page and their agenda generally
  1. The Specifics in the Expositor
    1. Left hand column. How Joseph carried out a preemptive strike before Foster could testify rather than follow procedure.
    2. 2nd from the left - The Charge
    3. Affidavits of William Law (William Law was formerly a member of the First Presidency and excommunicated on Jan 8th 1844) , Jane Law (William’s Wife), and Austin Cowles
  1. William Clayton’s entry that matched D&C 132: 1-4
  2. William Law's mention "in this world and the world to come" Matches D&C 132:15
  3. Jane Law - she mentions that women who will not permit their husbands to practice the doctrine will be damned D&C 132:52-54 & 62 &63
  4. Austin Cowles - Not only confirms that Fullmer, Johnson, and Allred’s testimony is true but also remembers D&C 132: 26-27 & 38-39
G.) Nauvoo City Council Minutes - June 8th - 11th Nauvoo Expositor was published on June 7th 1844
Joseph Smith called an emergency City Council Meeting on June 8th, where "he proceeded to put the Expositor and its editors on trial, as if that body was of a judicial instead of a legislative character." The trial "lasted all of Saturday, June 8, and a part of Monday, June 10." where The Expositor was declared a public nuisance and Smith issued two orders for the Expositor's destruction. City Marshall John P. Greene, accompanied by a posse of several hundred, & carried out the destruction. The members of the Nauvoo municipal government were: Mayor Joseph Smith, Councilor Hyrum Smith, Councilor John Taylor, Councilor Sylvester Emmons, Councilor Jonhnson, Councilor Benjamin Warrington , Councilor Hunter, Alderman Samuel C. Bennett, Alderman Elias Smith
  1. Almost 1 year after the Nauvoo High Council Meeting, shit is hitting the fan and Joseph and Hyrum admit to Hyrum teaching the plural Marriage revelation and try to explain it as only having to do with the past and not present times
  2. Nauvoo Neighbor 19 June 1844 (Juxtaposed to August 13th 1843 Nauvoo High Council) The Nauvoo Neighbor was a weekly newspaper edited and published by Latter Day Saint apostle John Taylor in Nauvoo, Illinois, from 1843 to 1845. While it was not an official publication of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, the Neighbor was consistently pro-Mormon and its primary target audience was the Latter Day Saint residents of Nauvoo. When The Wasp ceased publication in April 1843, the Neighbor replaced it as Nauvoo's premier secular newspaper. The first edition of the Nauvoo Neighbor was dated March 3, 1843. The final edition was published on October 29, 1845. Publication ceased when the majority of Latter Day Saints, including Taylor, decided to leave Nauvoo and emigrate to the Salt Lake Valley under the direction of Brigham Young.
  1. Close Up of the pertinent parts of the Nauvoo Neighbor
    1. Councilor Hyrum Smith with Joseph in attendance admits to reading the revelation in the August 1843 High Council Meeting and claims the “revelation was in answer to a question concerning things which transpired in Former Days” and “not present time”

H.) Conclusion: William Marks & Accountability
  1. William Marks
    1. First sentence is best understood as an event that took place formally within church structure rather than a practice being done unofficially in the shadows
    2. Marks while on Emma’s side and against polygamy and inspite of having a perfect chance to denounce Smith’s involvement admits that Smith “had done wrong”
    3. Uses the word Doctrine 3 times
  1. Bubble Image - Recognize that The data shared tonight is numerous and much of it connects to other pieces but very few do so in terms of influence meaning the ability to amend some other piece of evidence. The claim is Brigham Young manipulated the evidence and Joseph never practiced polygamy. It is true that Brigham said and did really unhealthy things. And it is also true that Brigham and the early church has been guilty at times of altering the historical record. Yet there are so many pieces of evidence here that are separate from Brigham’s influence, isolated from being manipulated, and which not only corroborate other parts of the story but also corroborate the overarching narrative that Joseph Smith originated and perpetuated the Doctrine of Polygamy. To argue otherwise one would need to explain the collective evidence shared tonight not only in a way that requires an alternate explanation, but also must do so with less conjecture and inference aka Mental gymnastics). Otherwise the conclusion imposed by us, is the most rational conclusion one can arrive at and those who argue or believe otherwise would need to collectively deal with the repercussions of Joseph Smith not only as a polygamist but of a human who used deeply unhealthy Predatory and manipulative behaviors in order to carry out the practice.



1.) Clayton Journal Entries are reliable
2.) There is substantial Evidence that imposes that Smith originated and perpetetuated Polygamy
3.) D&C 132 is reliable as the text of the revelation that Smith received
4.) Hyrum Smith read the revelation in a High Council Meeting and such is reliable.
5.) That any attempt to explain Joseph's practice as "eternal only" and not time is irrational in light of Hyrum and Joseph's attempt to walk back the doctrine/revelation of plural marriage by explaining it was in regards to former times and had nothing to do with the present. In other words Dynastic Sealings or relationships in the hereafter that are not binding or sexual in this life is not going to strike fear in Emma, Marks, Cowles, and Soby and can be explained without embarrassment. But when Joseph and Hyrum tip their hand by making the excuse that this revelation is about former times and not the present, we can rationally conclude this wasn't eternal only or dynastic relationships that lacked sex or marriage in this life.

2023.06.08 16:25 AccurateStrength1 Is generational wealth a curse?

In the show Pachinko a character says something to this effect. Paraphrasing:
Corporate Dude: If you make this deal, it will provide wealth for your children and your children’s children for many generations
Old woman: That sounds like it would be a curse on them
At the time I thought, oh bullshit, money solves SO many problems. But the idea has been nagging at me and I think maybe the old lady has a point. Especially after watching Succession too.
What do you think? Is generational wealth a blessing or a curse?

2023.06.08 16:25 responsiveTA Why are health insurance agents pushy about getting a top-up plan instead of increasing the Sum Insured? Is there any catch?

My parents have a health insurance with cover of 3L (3 lakhs). I have been trying to increase the premium to 10L at the time of renewal. Every time I talk to my insurance agent or the insurance company's helpline, they try to push me towards a top-up plan (of 10L with 3L deductible), saying that it will give me the same cover but for a lower premium, as well as shorter waiting period for 'pre-existing diseases' and 'specified diseases' for the additional cover.
So what is the catch?
So far, I have deduced that there is no Cumulative Bonus in these top-up plans when there are consecutive years without claim. And if the policy is ported, then the Sum Insured is ported, while this top-up amount is not. So this somewhat locks customers to the company.
Any other reason why top-up plans are pushed so hard? I am somewhat interested in knowing the agent's commission structure to understand what's happening. My best guess so far is that they get a higher % of the premium for a new policy as opposed to a renewal policy. And since the top-up policy is a new one, they will get a higher chunk of it, while the increase in sum insured will simply be a renewal policy, resulting in lesser commission.
What am I missing? What are the cons of a top-up policy?
(If you are going to make a claim, please add a legit source, so that I can refer to it when talking to the agent).

2023.06.08 16:25 matijaa Freelance photographer trying to move to The Netherlands

I'm in my early twenties, and I live in a country which is not part of the EU.
I have been to the Netherlands like 5 times already, because my aunt and my cousin live there. I love the country and I would like to live and work in it.
My first question is, could I somehow move to NL through my aunt and her son, since we're practically family? They became NL citizans last year, after like 8 years of living there. How are my chances?
Also, does someone know what would be a good place to start searching for work? I currently work as a freelance photographer for many clients, so I could basically do any kind of photography related work. I could work for a digital marketing agency, or maybe in a film photography lab.
While writing this, I'm thinking how I could actually do some random jobs in the beginning, like being a waiter, until I find something that is photography related.
Any advice or suggestion is very welcome and helpful.
Thank you guys! :)

2023.06.08 16:25 Dry-Foot8052 Father of 2 boys needs help finding a lawyer

H (mom) J (dad/me)
H and I were never married and we separated around 2018. Our parenting time agreement was made that year as well. We have joint custody split 50/50 physical and legal. Unfortunately, i was without a lawyer through the friend of the court phase and only have the boys for 2.5 days while she gets them for 4.5 days. I have the boys Monday morning through Wednesday evening. Since then, Hayley has continued to violate my parental rights by changing my children's school district, signing them up for therapists, and encouraging them to recognize their step father as "dad" and me as "josh". My boys both understand their mom has no respct for me and it has had effects on their social emotional behavior both in and outside of our homes. There are many more offenses that have been saved for reference in our email communication. I don't have the skill, knowledge, or mental capacity to keep up with, and file complaints for every slight she commits. She has a lawyer thats been financed by her husband, my child support payments and family, I don't have the luxury of financial support and cannot afford to miss work to represent myself and uphold my rights. I've had to endure death threats where my children tell me their step dad will come kill me, or kidnap my wife and lock her in their basement. I understand children will say just about anything whe they are mad, but these ideas of retribution aren't things they would say without hearing it from an adult first. I don't have money, but if there's any financial windfall on my end from getting this situation handled, it's yours. I don't want her money, I just want more time with my kids and for her to hear from a judge that her actions are damaging our children. I just need a lawyer to help me find an avenue to get this lady to understand that what she's doing, is not co-parenting. If anything, she's counter parenting. Her behavior is exactly the kind of behavior she has my. kids in therapy for and she doesn't even see it.

2023.06.08 16:25 BLionJudah That sinking feeling telling you to end it sucks

I’ve been dating a separated woman for four months now. She’s working on the divorce now. When we first started hanging out things just felt so relaxing and peaceful. But I kind of figured it would be casual. We started having sex the third time we hung out and it’s just been incredible. I had never felt at so much at peace and connected with someone before. Our energies matched so well. I have roommates so we normally hang at her place. I let her invite me over. I don’t ask. It’s been about 4 months and I asked her what we are and what she hopes we will be. I told her I know your just out of a divorce but I don’t want to see anyone else and that is ultimately like to make her my girlfriend. She said same and that she sees me as a boyfriend. She said she doesn’t want to be with anyone in the same capacity as me. She even told me she’s been telling her friends and family about me. But saying boyfriend scares her right now. I’m fine with that. Well, we went on a trip to the beach for her bday and spent the night. Once we got back she’s gone cold and gave me this whole thing about needing space. This is after hearing how great I am and how wonderful the trip was and how blessed she is to have met me. I said that’s cool. Take your time and let me know when your ready and didn’t text her again. That night she said she missed me and really likes me. I’ve had to wait 4 days but she said she wants to hang out tonight. But then started acting cold again when I acted excited to see her and stuff. I don’t get it and it sucks. At the beach she seemed to be acting strange with her phone. I’m not a jealous type so I just ignored it. Well, that phone stuff has been eating at my stomach for days since the beach. It’s making me feel ill and to top it off she’s being cold. I think my intuition is telling me to end it but I’m extremely sad about it. I’m confused as hell.

2023.06.08 16:25 OkProof136 Screw the Baron Du Buchon

Pretty much as the title says. Everywere i have asked i have been told that his bossfight is very easy. I'm on my 14th or 15th attempt (more than Cyril, Jade or the sorts). So either
a) I suck REALLY HARD. I am using all 3 potions availibke to me, using advised spells, watching guide videos (and using said weapons and tactics) and using good blood yet i can barely get him down to 60%. What keeps happening is that i get hit by a barrel, then another barrel as soon as i get up, and this only needs to happen 2-3 times and its game over.
b) It's a comunity prank to tell new players he is easy, a bit like the free anaconda in Elite Dangerous
c)Since i'm playing on a US server in EU, the bad ping is what impedes me from dodging though barrels. Am i supposed to be hit by barrels while using my TA through them?
Thoughts and tips are appreciated

2023.06.08 16:25 Veneris_Mater New job pls help

So I need help. I'm starting a new job that has potential and im very excited. However, they are very strict with times for bathrooms and breaks as well as attendance. I let them know from the start that I had crohns and am still trying to get it under control and I will use the bathroom alot and need appointments that sometimes don't have warning. They seemed to understand and now I'm doing training and they keep stressing bathroom breaks and attendance and everyone is telling me to talk to HR. HR and my doctor can't seem to be on the same page. My doctor said bring in FMLA paperwork, but my job says that's not available to me until after a year and gave me a medical leave form but that's not what I need! I just want to not be afraid to go to the bathroom when I have explosive diarrhea, or take time off when my crohns gives me random fevers.
What do I do? How do I get the accommodations I need? Any advice is welcome, please, I'm going to lose my mind.

2023.06.08 16:25 ShadowDevil123 At the end of this summer I want to build the cheapest PC for 360hz Valorant and games like Elden Ring

Im working during this summer and I want to build a pc for the first time. My priorities are over 400 fps on Valorant and CSGO. I also want to be able to play games like Elden Ring and Red Dead Redemption on High to Ultra graphics without FPS drops.
Im willing to shed a few extra bucks if it means future-proofing a bit. Value for the money is my top priority.
My current PC is:

I imagine the RAM and HDDs/SSDs are only things that will go into the build. I will want a higher quality SSD aswell but i guess ill think about that later on. Right now i mostly want to know around how much its going to cost to get a motherboard, cpu, gpu and case and what my best options for those are. I want to get that 360hz zowie monitor as i play games like cs and val pretty seriously, so i will need a good enough cpu for that aswell.

Broker guide of the day! Day 319 (Apen zijn nooit te oud om te leren Edition!): How to DRS transfer from Commerzbank in het nederlands
Welcome to 300+ days of broker guides and DRS education! (AKA get the heck out of your broker!)
🇳🇱 This series of posts is dedicated to all the Dutch speaking brokers out there. The team have worked tirelessly to translate the entire site into Dutch! Apes are never too old to learn! 🇳🇱
USA apes! Check out my accessible IRA overview post to see what options are available! (only US retirement accounts - specifically IRAs - can DRS US shares).
If you're looking for a guide for your broker, check out the DRSGME website, my list of brokers, or my previous posts, and you'll find all 142 guides (hopefully your broker is one of them!). If you can't find a guide for your broker, let me know and I'll see what I can dig up!
Want to help? We are looking for more proofreaders for the following languages:
Dansk, Deutsch, Nederlands, Português, and Polski.

Day 319, Guide 319: Commerzbank

Commerzbank is een Duitse makelaar die geen DRS overboeking kan doen. U zou dus eerst moeten overschrijven naar een broker die DRS-overschrijvingen kan doen.
Commerzbank rekent een flinke vergoeding van €150 om over te boeken naar een andere broker.
Als u GS2C aandelen hebt gekocht via Commerzbank en ze wilt DRS-en, kunt u ze converteren naar GME en tegelijkertijd overbrengen naar IBKR, zoals hier beschreven. Naar verluidt was dit tot nu toe gratis, maar Commerzbank kan u nog steeds de €150 kosten in rekening brengen.
Een populaire optie is een internationale makelaar zoals IBKR. IBKR rekent een kleine vergoeding van $5 en is betrouwbaar gebleken bij het overboeken van DRS.
Gidsen voor al deze brokers zijn beschikbaar op de site.
Oversat med www.DeepL.com/Translator gratis version

Commerzbank is a German based broker that cannot DRS transfer. So you would need to transfer to a broker that can DRS transfer first.
Commezbank charge a hefty €150 fee to transfer to another broker.
If you have bought GS2C shares through Commerzbank and want to DRS them, you can convert them to GME and transfer to IBKR at the same time as detailed here. It's reported to have been free so far, but Commerzbank may still charge you the €150 fee.
A popular option is an international broker such as IBKR. IBKR charge a small fee of $5 and has been reliable at DRS transferring.
Guides for all of these brokers are available on the site.

2023.06.08 16:24 collaredkeeper How to proceed with a "never delivered" but signed USPS priority mail package?

*Email pasted below*
I sometimes buy and sell telescope accessories and this one hit a bit hard. Just trying to learn how to proceed or file a claim. It was a $550 telescope eyepiece that I sent with priority mail to a guy who lives in a rather nice condo complex. I am not doubting the truth behind it never being delivered from the mailroom, just not sure how to proceed after a lost package like this. It was sent with USPS priority mail flat rate box and was fully insured. The address was the exact one he gave to me and on USPS tracking it says it was signed by someone at the front desk, reception area, or mail room under " J MAILMAN" (not the recipient). All I really have is a photo of the box prior to shipment. I went through shippo and I don't see an option for filing a claim either.
The email from recipient....
" I want to bring to your attention about the shipment. I want to first clarify that I know there's nothing you've done wrong and don't want to hold you accountable for, well, something that you can't really do anything. I also want to apologize for the rather long explanation of what went on, just to let you know my thought process.
However, the shipment never arrived. I know it says that it's delivered last Saturday, and it was signed by some "J Mailman", but I live in an apartment that has a mailing office which is closed at the claimed delivery time (7:31 pm). I contacted the office, they helped me through all the unsorted mails with me on Monday, nothing was found; the mailbox is empty; I was at home the whole time on Monday, no one knocked the door and I was frequently checking if anything is left at the door, nothing really. It's a quite good apartment building and I have had previous experience with the office, they tend to be professional and helpful, so that's why I'm leaning towards the fact that I'm not getting the mail is the responsibility of USPS. I obtained a delivery proof, not really helpful, because obviously neither me or the office staff actually signed anything. I also submitted a search request, but nothing helpful returned just yet.
I'm not sure if there's anything you or I could do at the moment, honestly I've been in the area for more than 10 years and things like "missing shipment" only happens on the internet for me. I think you said you went full insurance, but I'm not sure how long the claim process would take. Please let me know what you think and advise on how we should proceed."

2023.06.08 16:24 Jennifer_GatorFan My first week of becoming me

I made my first post earlier this week and appreciate all the support. The significant shift was shaving my legs and chest.
Last night I shaved my arms, hands, and pits. I feel amazing, but more importantly, for the first time, what I see with my eyes looks right.
Three weeks into focusing on sitting down to pee, and yesterday I went to the bathroom and sat down without thinking about it.
Yesterday I wore women's underwear in public under my clothes for the first time. All day - meetings, errands, everything.
This morning I am alone where I can dress for the day (at my office). I have a Cami top with my fake rice bag boobs, high-waisted shorts, and heels. There is no "thrill" or "arousal" when I look down. What I see is what I feel I should always have seen. For the first time, everything just looks correct.
Lastly, it is something I noticed. Wearing heels, sitting with my legs crossed, and focusing on my mannerisms have touched my muscles oddly. My hip flexors and inner thighs have felt the change from constantly crossing my legs. I am sitting more upright at my desk. And the funniest, my shoulders are getting a workout as getting a sports bra or cami over my head is hard!

2023.06.08 16:24 Moonlight-gospel She married someone else

I (26m) just found out that the love of my life recently got married.
I met the love of my life when I was in college about 6 years ago. To make a long story short, we had a great relationship for 2 years. I knew a couple of weeks in that I loved her and wanted to marry her.
The relationship ended in large part due to a disability I developed as a result of a couple seemingly minor accidents. Without getting into exactly what it is, it affected my ability to feel emotion and make decisions. Neither of us knew there was something medically wrong with me at the time, and my poor decision making led to our breakup. Very soon after, the condition worsened and transformed into a 24/7 chronic pain disorder. It’s been about 4 years of fighting to get to a point where I could work full time, overcome pain-induced depression, go to grad school, and get a great full-time job.
She’s the primary reason I’ve been able to survive this disability and still succeed. I had this fantasy that I had a chance of winning her back if only I could get better. I did try a couple times to reconnect previously as friends, but, in short she was not interested. I really regret though that I never told her how I feel. That I still love her. That I still literally dream of her. I’ve fought so hard and I finally felt like I’m close to a place where there could be some hope of me being ‘good enough’ to take one final shot at reconnecting. And now I can’t.
I used to be proud of myself for getting to where I am despite my disability. Now I’ve realized that I failed myself. I didn’t get better. I didn’t tell her how I feel. I didn’t win her back. I let hopelessness win. What I really wanted from my life is to spend it with her. I didn’t do well enough for that to happen. I failed.

2023.06.08 16:24 fenluvr21 No response - any insight about what's happening on HR side?

I had an interview last Friday (six days ago). It was for a position that does not yet exist, but would be created in the next ~2 months. I applied to another job at this company, and HR pulled my application for this role.
The interview went extremely well. The two interviewers (one from HR and one from the team I'd be joining) kept complimenting me and telling me what I great, rare fit I was. It went beyond the scheduled time and they shared all details about the position and benefits package. They asked me to tell them ASAP if I get another offer, so they can speed the process along.
At the end of the interview, the HR rep asked me to sleep on it and then email on Monday if I'm interested in the job. The next step would be a written assessment, which is standard part of this company's hiring process. I emailed her Monday morning saying I'm interested and excited to continue the process. It's now Thursday end of day and I have heard nothing. I emailed the other interviewer yesterday to thank her for the conversation and express my interest, and also have heard nothing back. I would have expected to receive a decision about whether or not they want to move forward.
I know ghosting is becoming the norm, but they both seemed so extremely positive (and kind!) during our interview, I'd like to think they'd at least let me know if things had changed so drastically and they didn't want to move forward with my application. Does anyone have any insight into what could be happening over there? It's a relatively big company, over 500 employees. This was a junior role and more of a planned need than an urgent hire, so maybe it's just not a priority right now? I wish I could just forget about it and move on, but after feeling so positive about it, I feel like I can't let go without hearing from them. I feel anxious and sad.
Any thoughts or advice are totally appreciated! Would you stay chill? Assume something has changed and move on? Send a followup to the HR rep? Thank you so much!

2023.06.08 16:24 TastyBananaPeppers An example of someone who doubts the anti-cheat behavior system

An example of someone who doubts the anti-cheat behavior system
From https://www.reddit.com/PoGoAndroidSpoofing/comments/1444579/comment/jndupg3/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=web2x&context=3.
"Strikes come in waves. Niantic been doing this since the game came out. When there's a ban wave going on, you'll see numerous reports in this sub which are still available to see if you search for them.
Ignore the mod who claims PGSharp has never had a ban wave. They have a very narrow definition of ban wave to circumvent admitting that PGSharp has ban waves."
#1 - Read https://nianticlabs.com/news/gameplay-policy-enforcement-update?hl=en
We want to start this note by thanking you, our players, for your patience and understanding as we continuously work to facilitate a fun and fair environment for everyone. We’ve heard your feedback and feel your frustration about how cheating behaviors negatively impact your gameplay experience.
It has been a little while since our most recent update from the beginning of 2021 on our efforts to prevent cheating in our games and we wanted to share what we have been working on.
Our last post was focused primarily on sharing a broad overview of the actions we had taken to punish accounts we found to be cheating in multiple Niantic games. Since then, we’ve invested in becoming better at observing cheating behaviors, and can now more reliably pinpoint these activities with higher speed and accuracy, preventing legitimate players from being punished incorrectly.
As a result, we will be ramping up enforcement against these behaviors across our games, and rolling out our improved approach to anti-cheat. We are starting now by taking action against a number of accounts who we found to be in violation of our terms of service or player guidelines during recent in-game events in Pokémon GO.
This is only the first step in implementing our improved cheating behavior detection and enforcement systems. These improvements will be integrated into all Niantic games to detect and punish players on a consistent and ongoing basis, rather than in waves, as we have in the past.
#2 - Just because you got a strike on your alt or main account doesn't mean everyone else will get a strike too. Why is that? It's because of the anti-cheat behavior system.
#3 - I am the only one in the spoofing community who discusses the anti-cheat behavior system in depth while everyone doubts or ignores it.

#4 - I am an active game cheater in AAA games like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Battlefield, Counter Strike: GO, and etc. I have paid hacks/aimbot. These games have a finished anti-cheat behavior system unlike the one Niantic is trying to develop for Pokemon Go, a non-FPS (First Person Shooter) game. I have had bans in other games too including VAC bans on my main steam account :)
#5 - Although I use paid hacks/aimbot/cheats, I can still get an punished for cheating. The difference between those AAA games and Pokemon Go is the punishment system. You can get one or all of these:
  • Account ban
  • IP Address ban
  • Hardware/MAC address Ban
  • Shadow ban (they don't ban your account but make all your guns do zero damage or make you play against other caught cheaters only)
  • Financial information ban (you buy the game under the same card information and you get banned
#6 - Since I run a cheating subreddit where I tell you how to cheat a game, I also prepare you for the reality of cheating. I can handle account losses because I am playing for fun. I don't care because a game is $60 to $70. With Pokemon Go, people's accounts are anywhere from $0 to over $50,000. This game is family friendly, so I am being upfront about the risks for all cheats, both No Root and Rooted methods regardless of how other people claim it to be based on their experience. No one here controls the outcome of the anti-cheat behavior system and 3-strikes punishment system except... Niantic (Pokemon Go's game developer).

\"legit\" aimbot settings
#7 - The anti-cheat behavior system can be tricked if you play like a non-cheater with self-control. "Aim snap" is when your crosshairs teleports to the enemy. The legit way is you have to drag the crosshair onto the enemy. This takes time and doesn't move in a straight line. Sometimes you if you are too slow, you die. If you are too fast, you missed and you're dead. If you're on point, you get a kill. If you accidentally aim snap one-time, you could be fucked. If you rely on the aimbot all the time, your player statistics are too suspicious. If you play like a non-cheater, it's hard for them to tell if you're a cheater or not unless someone record a video of your fuck ups and reports you.

#8 - Like Pokemon Go, people report their bans once in awhile. This is a recent ban in May 2023. No one really gives a shit about this person who got caught. The same goes for Pokemon Go. No where on this hack site advertises this cheat is safe and ban proof. I take the same approach regardless of what the rest of the spoofing/botting community thinks about rooted methods being safe, safer, the safest, and/or ban proof. When someone reports a COD:MWI or MWII ban, do we scream "OMG BAN WAVE!!! STOP USING YOUR AIMBOT!!!" No, we don't. It's because of the anti-cheat behavior system. Some people will get caught but not everyone else.
There is no ban wave for Pgsharp. If there was one, Niantic would have already made an official blog post on their website announcing the ban wave. When people report strikes on my subreddit, it's only a handful of people. I need to see thousands of posts about it.

2023.06.08 16:24 Unhelpful_Idiot PedoCon Theory: Japan, "Good P*dophiles and "Bad Groomers"

So there was a manga I've been somewhat interested in called Act-Age that's about acting.

I never read past the 1st chapter because it was around the time I stopped reading manga. I am learning today that he was arrested for sexual misconduct with minors between the ages of 10-17. He was only sentenced for 3 years.
Let me start by saying Japanese people are just like every other group of people. I reject the idea that these problems are due to their culture.
This is a subculture that came about due to a combination of the political situation and a lack of legal recourse. 5% of men across the human race show pedophilic tendencies and the rampancy of child abuse has more to do with a community's inability to protect its children than that community's abundance of pedophiles.
So, still being in study mode after my exams, I researched Japan's pedophilia problem from a political lense and here's what I found:

Japan is a de-facto single-party state lead by the LDP in an "Iron Triangle" arrangement between themselves, the Bureaucracy, and Corporate interests.
The LDP is what would happen if the DNC and the RNC just fused into one mega party. They are right-wing nationalists (as what would happen if the DNC and RNC fused).
The young people are fairly left-leaning.
The old people just want stability.
Due to the population crisis Old people not only vote more (as is expected) but they also out-number the young people.
Arresting/punishing pedophiles the way most of the world does would cause instability so the LDP has lead a several decade long soft-burial of what is a pretty clear child abuse crisis.
Due to the LDP's deep control there are systems in place at nearly every level of the legal system to ensure that child abuse and the consequences of it are handled outside of the legal system. This essentially translates to them being increadibly lax on pedophilia.
It is impossible to know how wide-spread sexual assault on minors is in Japan. Often times people would be charged with ancillary crimes around their sexual assault.
This is all ontop of the right that, in Japan, 13 year olds have full right to consent.

What I mean to say is... pedocon theory stays undefeated and using that here is my theory:
This isn't unique to Japan, it is unique to Conservative Nationalism. When criminality is made an identity you treat people who commit crimes with the identity you choose to back softly. "Grooming" children in a way that includes the "bad identities" (AKA, teaching children its ok to be themselves or teaching them about the places people can only touch them with consent) will be given the full strength of the law as far as repercussion go. Abusing children by having sex with them has nothing to do with your identity so as long as you are of the identity favored by the society (Japanese) you will be treated with full empathy and kindness to not impede you or inflame the dominant group. This essentially creates Good Pedophiles and Bad "Groomers". It doesn't matter how soft you are on the "Good Pedophiles" because they are on your side, there is no lack of punishment you can give them that will "harm children" because their crimes are in the past... we all make mistakes. "Bad Groomers" must be removed immediately, there is no level of cruelty you can inflict on them that is too much because you must protect the children.
Japan doesn't have a culture war. There are not the idea of 'Bad Groomers' in Japan... yet. As the younger more left-leaning people grow older we may see a shift that leads to this culture war being implemented or Japan may just have a silent revolution within their De-Facto Single Party State... whether that is another party just eclipsing the old one of the LDP being changed from the inside. With a lot of media focus going into Japan's pedophilia problem (and an especially highly watched BBC documentary) there are changes being made today in Japan but this has been an ongoing effort by many in the country. Current debate is whether a law that stops guardians from having sex with minors should be applied to mentors as well (after a music executive forced multiple underaged boys to have sex with him). Its not much of an improvement but at least there is a public conversation on it.
What we do know is that this insistence of giving lighter legal consequences to favorable groups is something we see in today's America and we will see in Far-Right Theocratic Fascist America. A group that already forgives Pedophiles and Pedophilic apologia within their own group today.
I believe "Good Pedophiles and Bad Groomers" is the future of any Far-Right government and the self-interest to cover up and defend Pedophiles will become entrenched at ever level of their legal system.
Thank you, most of my information has come from the following sources (Sorry for the bad citation but at least its not no-citation):

2023.06.08 16:24 Atomily I have no one now

I have been going through a divorce since february… the tldr is they decided they didn’t want a kid or monogamy anymore. I’ve had about the average grieving process as most would (crying, journaling, therapy) but overall moved on from my ex pretty quickly. If I’m sad it’s because I didn’t think my life would be this way at 30.
I have (had?) two best friends that I vented to a lot about the divorce, that’s what friends are for right? One of them I call therapy queen and she always has helpful insights to make me see things differently, the other has been through a lot of breakups so she’s helped me see how bad the relationship was.
We’ve been busy adulting lately and so I haven’t seen either of them in a few weeks. Two nights ago I saw one of those Instagram stories, “share 6 photos from your last 6 months” and I sent them a draft of the photos of me crying the last few months… I honestly thought it was some funny / dark humor. They both proceeded to criticize me and saying that they don’t want to see me sad after all the time they’ve “taken out of their lives to make sure I was okay.” I explained to them that I’m fine but they’re making me feel like a burden with that comment. They said that wasn’t their intentions and that I am taking things too personally and long story short I’m not talking to either of them now over a stupid fucking meme I tried to make. My birthday is next weekend and life couldn’t be anymore shit.

2023.06.08 16:24 Just-a-ghost-at-most I’m getting ridiculously triggered by poly people and idk how to stop it

I don’t WANT to feel like this. Non-monogamy isn’t for me personally, but I don’t want to feel triggered every time I see someone on an app that’s poly. Or when someone talks about it. But I do. And I want that to stop. People should be able to do what makes them happy! And I would never say anything to anyone or make them feel bad but oh my god the amount of immediate uncomfortable that I feel and the anger that starts to bubble up. I mean what the hell.
And I’m sure it has to do with the fact that I’ve now had multiple partners leave me because they suddenly feel like they want to explore poly relationships and they know I won’t do it. And now I’m struggling because most people around here on the dating apps are poly and I feel like my already tiny dating pool as a queer person is getting even smaller. And idk what to do
