"As you can see from my post @111, I just finished calling out tkc for telling you to kill yourself, because it is mean."

Yes I do see that.
After I have specifically pointed out that your rationalization would result in you defending someone who told Anita Sarkeesian to kill herself for posting her opinions, you said you agreed with the sentiment.

"Are you going to report him btw? Kant and Venomlash?"

Let us first see if you can post any links to you "calling out" them about their posts.
But you won't be able to.
Maybe you should review your post #99 in this thread.

If you disagreed with her, you would defend someone telling Anita Sarkeesian to kill herself for posting her opinions because, to you, that is just something that people do on the internet and you know that they do not mean it.
And you think that that is acceptable.

"Which is not to say that I don't understand the impulse on your part, I do. I really. Really. Do."

"That's a negatory good buddy."

No it's not.
Because you are claiming that when people post things like "kill yourself" they really do not mean what they post.
When you disagree with the target of their post.

You are claiming that if someone posted that Anita Sarkeesian should kill herself because she dared to post her opinions you would be defend that because the person posting that did not really mean that Anita Sarkeesian should killer herself.
It is just what that people post on the internet.

Anna, do you need any more evidence?

@103
You have already come out defending such behavior.
Along with 5 other people here.
As long as it is directed against someone you do not like.

If you did not like Anita Sarkeesian's message then you would be posting about how no one wants her to be raped and murdered.
You would claim that it's just something that people post when they don't really mean it.
Just as you are doing right now.

Anna, is that sufficient evidence for you?
One person here posts "kill yourself" and 6 people here defend that posting.

It is not because Anita Sarkeesian is a woman.
It is not because Anita Sarkeesian critiques video games.
It is not because of Anita Sarkeesian's claims of misogyny.

It is because that is how some people on the internet behave towards people they disagree with.
You can see them right here.

@74
Yes, you keep defending that behavior.
Because it is okay as long as it is directed at people you disagree with.

@71
"Of course it's all about you."

And that is person #3 defending that behavior.
As long as it is directed against someone they disagree with.

I'm sure that there will be more.

Here's the link that you may have missed.

Maybe you should examine why you support such behavior when it is directed against someone you disagree with.
So that is one instance that I provided by one person.
Followed by two people who support it.

Like I said, iIf the staff at The Stranger were a little more self aware they'd be able to find enough examples of similar behavior in these forums.

@66
Did you have trouble loading the link I posted?
Here it is again.
http://slog.thestranger.com/slog/archive…

Yes. They are the same thing.
And you have just provided another instance of supporting such behavior.

@63
"Surely if there are "enough" examples of such behavior you could provide us with one or two?"

http://slog.thestranger.com/slog/archive…

Is someone posting a link to a graphic with the phrase "kill yourself" clear enough for you?

Or do you support it when it is directed at the people you disagree with?
You only oppose it when it is from people you disagree with?

"Anita Sarkeesian Threatened with Rape and Murder for Daring to Keep Critiquing Video Games"

a. Her critiques are rather vapid. Although some people might find them insightful.

b. Whether her critiques are vapid or not is not the story. She is getting death threats from people who do not agree with her opinion. That is the story.

c. If the staff at The Stranger were a little more self aware they'd be able to find enough examples of similar behavior in these forums. Attempting to silence people who you disagree with seems to be a thing on the internet.
