By the looks of things it was a bot. Pretty stunning that a bot can permanently delete someone.

Honestly not that arsed. I'm sure it's some kind of skynet/Kafkaesque nightmare but I'll just create a new account.

Can someone make a Kill Jester bot that intervenes against the other bot?

Isn't that the plot to Terminator 2?

I saw someone on Reddit claim that something "explicitly" said something. I pointed out that it didn't, just hinted at it. They responded that "there's this thing called hyperbole used for emphasis or effect". I said "I'm going to fucking kill you" and got a Reddit community strike

I believe Reddit offers special classes, where they teach you to act smugly intellectually superior while saying what is in context the stupidest fucking shit imaginable.

Some fallout from this tweet:

Scottish comedian and actor Brian Limond aka Limmy attends a photocall during the annual Edinburgh International Book Festival at Charlotte Square Gardens in Edinburgh, Scotland (2017)

This Twitter account that posts pictures from the Getty Library with the original caption (a point which seems to confuse some people, but there we are). There's often a mildly topical rationale behind which pictures they post, but not always.

Seemingly Limmy was snitch tagged, and then blocked the account, which reacted unnecessarily. I think that's it.

Christ, what a world.

The "Yorker's one and only Columbo" comments got a giggle from me

Probably just found it a bit annoying.

Knowing who the person behind the account is, I know they just find this really funny. There's no beef or anything, it was mildly inconveniencing Limmy on twitter so he blocked. The account has some fun with the situation because it's quite funny to get blocked by Limmy.

Who's behind that account, then?

Thursday

Well there's a couple of people, but one of them is normally a locked account so I don't want to link to them. I don't actually know them to be clear. I just meant from following them and knowing their style of humor.

Limmy blocks everyone who irritates him for one microsecond. It's a sensible way to use social media, I think. BAMO.

please name them so I never have to interact with someone using 'out of work' as an insult

Limmy can fuck off for not saying anything about the genocide occurring in Palestine.

Edit: I don't agree with this I was drunk and emotional. Cheers.

Limmy tending to his garden and looking after the kids and ignoring all the horrors over the wall.

Still no statement on Palestine, not looking for Limond

No politics please

I suppose he's not obligated to, and he seems to be incredibly careful these days regarding anything that might threaten his Twitch career, which I think is his only income stream now. Ironically enough, he's probably got to be more careful with a service like Twitch than he ever did while working with the BBC - although people like Hasan Piker seem to do fine whilst being very adamant in their criticism of Israel, Limmy's audience is a bit ... well, they seem to like causing a stir.

It's a shame, since he used to be refreshingly acerbic and you could generally rely on him having the right take, but I understand that not necessarily being sustainable. It's been taking enough of a mental toll on me just knowing about it, let alone opening up the gates to a whole bunch of cunts brandishing antisemitism accusations.

I often see people (well, reddit) say that Limmy is so careful not to offend these days because of his streaming career, but it's more that he's just different from what he was like 10-15 years ago. He's more mellow now. He's changed a lot in what he wants to do and what makes him happy, he speaks about this constantly on stream.

Not sure if people are being serious having a go about him not mentioning Israel, he just doesn't talk about things like that. Don't think he's being "careful", just more like... what's it going to do? He doesn't want to get bogged down in shite that makes people miserable. That makes HIM miserable. Has he spoken about Ukraine? Are we going after every comedian who hasn't mentioned it? Is Bob Mortimer cancelled for not condemning?

druss

What about North Korea? Disgusting that Limmy has not spoken up about Kim Jong Un. He's dead to me.

Limmy also constantly talked about 'what's going to happen? NOTHING' in relation to politics on twitter, every time people are getting excited about Trump going to jail, or a Tory being fired or held to account etc. and so he just seems very weary when it comes to that kind of thing. Probably easier for him to compartmentalise in his 'block and move on' way when it comes to politics and social issues knowing how his brain works.
