For anyone wondering, the password for the incompleted article was ‘yaba’ without the apostrophes. There was literally nothing written though but just for gags I included an easter egg message congratulating you on your leet hacking skillz should you manage to hack into the system. The only reason I password protect articles is because they literally don’t have anything in them, that said the title still represents the content I am about to write.
Now let’s see here, #3 is having a temper tantrum over his friend leaving him? Comments from here will he seperated from Eric Gaede’s comments (or anyone elses) using a dashed line.
I will live. Needless to say, i’ve had worse. It kinda hurts that I wasn’t ever afforded a chance to talk out whatever differences this friend of mine had with me, but no biggie. I would have preferred he not kick the hornets nest online with this petty video and just told me in private to go fuck myself, but he clearly wanted the attention.
Now for those wondering about the purpose of this article, I’m just gonna say it right here and now. Information literacy is key in world that allows even the most remote and unjust of opinions to be expressed. Part of the reason why Asalieri has one or two stupid fanboys who take his word seriously is because … well we all know that humanity is inherently lazy. There are people in the world who are content with not knowing how to wipe their own ass and that says alot about the diversity of people in the world. Without information literacy, you’ll just be forced to take information at its face value. What’s right and what’s wrong is based on emotion and not a logical system of verification and standards. For alot of people this article may be boring, after all if you’re here, odds are you already know what information literacy is (but there’s no guarantee you know you’re actually practicing it). Eric Gaede here is content with being one of those people who don’t know how to be information literate and is more than estatic to judge the world based on his own logic that even contradicts itself.
‘no biggie’ Eric Gaede describes his current situation. ‘he clearly wanted the attention’ Eric Gaede believes. But Eric Gaede does not know how reality works. He does not know the average statistical behaviour of youtube subsribers. Youtube viewers are not going to subscribe to someone because they hate them. They may subscribe if they find the persons content ‘so bad its good‘ but not if they hate them. I mean just look at Irate Gamer, he’s been stuck at the subscriber count he’s had since he started one year ago. Meanwhile people like Pewdiepie who have massive crowds of people who don’t like them (understatement of the article) still get skyrocketing amounts of subscribers. People subscribe because they like entertainment (Sorry guys but that must mean Pewdiepie appeals to alot of people, though to be fair I find him boring). Getting pissed off is not entertaining, watching someone get pissed off is entertaining. Eric is trying to make it look as if Tyler is trying to steal 6k subscribers from him but in reality how would that even work? Why doesn’t Tyler feud with someone else? Like oh I don’t know, Pewdiepie. Even if his plan has 5% success rate Tyler will have 1000’s of subsribers gain but no, Tyler decided to fued with the guy with 6k subscribers. What I have demonstrated here isn’t just known as ‘doing the research’ its known as information literacy and it is important to understand what a statment means so you don’t make the wrong conclusions.
The United States National Forum on Information Literacy defines information literacy as ” … the ability to know when there is a need for information, to be able to identify, locate, evaluate, and effectively use that information for the issue or problem at hand.” – wikipedia
Oh and just to let everyone know, Eric Gaede can keep acting as if his feud is no biggie but everyone will know better because in reality Eric’s first response was making an incrediably aggressive action including a very hostile phone call and stalking. HEY ERIC, if you didn’t care then why are threatening to hurt this guy?
Yeah that’s you Eric Gaede… OR SHOULD I GIVE YOU THE BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT? Because I’m sure whatever doubt that existed was removed the second you started stalking kyle (the man receiving the call in the video)
Well, we all have our frustrations. My reactions were not at all ever uncalled for, and if you want to continue to see the worst in me and never give me any credit, that’s your prerogative. Three years +. You’re still desperately trying to discredit me. That’s gotta be the saddest thing ever.
I mean just look here. Its like he doesn’t care if people bother to keep track of his previous statements. Just the same old boring retoric that to anyone who knows the context, would prove his guilt. But the problem here is people who are lazy or ignorant of the circumstances of Eric’s comment. Eric is trying to make it look to the public audience as if everyone who has legitmate greivances with him are like tabloid papparazi deliberately misrepresenting him to make lulz. Uh no Eric, the only people you’re fooling are the people who aren’t information literate. Pay attention to how Eric doesn’t actually disprove any of the statements against him. Last time I checked, pretending that your accusations don’t exist in court still ends in the guilty verdict.
Amen, my friend. You just continue listening to your music in peace. It doesn’t matter what other people hate, after all
Shall I talk about your feud with the Irate Gamer sucks blog and you copious misuse of the word irrelevant? Or should I talk about how completely insane you get when someone so much as ‘dislikes’ you? Or how hostile you are towards people who so much as criticize you? How about that forced confession you are trying to force out of Kyle?
Still out of internet but I’m going to try and get this done anyway. Speaking of Asalieri, an excrept from one of my articles has been featured in the video by DrCaulder. S/he also points out that Asalieri has e-begged for a laptop….
Edit: It appears that Asa had the video taken down for bullying… it should be noted that everything in the video is based on actual events unlike Asa’s videos which get taken down for bullying because they didn’t contain actual truth. It should also be noted that youtube only helps people make money as evidenced by Ladybuggin777 never getting a warning for bullying but Batdamn consistently getting shutdown for his bullshit. As such it’s rather obvious that Asalieri did it because youtube only helps people who are partners.
Its a sad day when the most evil villain ever in the Battalion wars (advanced wars) franchise has one hell of point (But I’m more saddened by how ridiculous his boss fight was). Before I start talking about information literacy I would also like to point out that Asalieri’s defense strategy appears to be an attempt to paint all legitimate critics as creepy stalkers. I noticed this trend as he labels anyone regardless of their history with him as his biggest haters. Dr.Caulder has only existed for a handful of months and has made only 4 videos and yet Asalieri calls him the biggest hater (and loser, but its clear that Asalieri doesn’t know what the word means). Practically everyone has been labeled his biggest hater and long-term rival even when they just started criticizing him for about 2 days. As noted before, this isn’t an attempt to frustrate critics and test their resolve and commitment its to trick the average person who is not involved into thinking that the criticism is undeserved because ‘Asalieri isn’t about lulz’. Its a trick to make ‘fans’ and gullible people into doing Asalieri’s work for him as opposed to he himself doing the work. In fact it appears that a lot of Asalieri’s crap appears to be ‘fan’ inspired. Mr.Kill Ultra’s comment which got featured (and taken totally out of context) in his video was relayed by a ‘fan’. Likewise I’m sure that some ‘fan’ deliberately gave Asalieri information on TGWTG’s apparent ‘actor safety problem’s’ and AVGN’s apparent “budget mismanagement”. Of course this still makes Asalieri a giant douche since under the guidelines of freedom of speech, its everyone’s job to ensure that their opinion are justified (or justifiable) and avoid slander and inflammatory statements. And as of another note, deliberately lying to someone or a group of people so that they was stay loyal to you is an act of treachery and symptom of the formation of a personality cult. Playing every critic up as the ‘biggest hater ever’ and stalking Kyle for trying to cut tries with Asalieri kind of makes me uneasy about what Asalieri is trying to do here.
I’m uneasy, especially with the parts after ‘* paranoia’
Turning cult members into watched objects who have no privacy in their solitary behavior or relationships with others… Orwellian system of informers who convey information to leaders about persons behind their back. Machiavellian techniques of setting members against each other or against outsiders.
Ganging up on individual members to criticize or humiliate or coerce them; “working on them” to violate their own sense of conscience or autonomy. Brainwashing or mind-control techniques or high-pressure group dynamics coercing members to conform to a worldview, agenda, or code of conduct. Physical or psychological violence
Preventing contact with outsiders, ex-members, and even certain fellow members of the dysfunctional cult. Breaking up couples and families to gain power over individuals and prevent coalitions that could more effectively criticize unsound, corrupt leadership. Rigid isolating of cult members in an exclusive “family” away from their relatives and friends outside the cult so that the cult becomes the sole source for support, self-esteem and interpersonal connection. Isolating cult members from other members
Blind obedience to harmful or unwise directives from on high. Abusive, domineering top-dog leadership. In healthy groups, the leader(s) functions more as an advisor and inspirer rather than as “control freak” dictating how members should think and act. Members are never threatened or subordinated in ruthless, bullying manner.
Hoarding of money, power or prestige by anyone— corruption and intrigue are not far behind. Beware lavish accommodations and lifestyle for leader and close assistants, while everyone else is reduced to inferior living standards. Beware the presence of sycophantic subordinates who inauthentically emulate and slavishly propitiate the leader and act as the leader’s agents of control and punishment of cult members.
Uh why are all of Asalieri’s friends doing the same thing….?
Double standard of behavior for leader(s) and members. Spiritual leaders should maintain high moral standards and exemplary virtuous behavior. Beware any rationalizations given to excuse the leader’s unvirtuous behavior as well as self-aggrandizing, vanity and excessive self-referencing by the leader (
Uh this is too uncomfortable. I think I’ll stop now and talk about information literacy.
Information Literacy (aka you should know this already)
The key to information literacy is evaluating the information you are given. This should probably come in 3 steps
1. Check if the information is true
Well no shit Sherlock but for a lot of things it not always easy. The hottest news tends to get covered very slowly since media knows that if they fuck up they’ll have a lot of cleaning up to do. Therefore slowly and accurately getting the news out is best for them. Generally though, always assume that information is biased and thus check more than one source. A forum is usually a good place for information since you can get both sides of the issue as there rarely is a one sided forum. Last but not least, always remember that information can be misrepresented and as a result, its always best to go to the source whenever possible.
2. Check the information source’s integrity.
Try to guess why the person or new source is giving you this information. Not everything is free even when it doesn’t cost money. It takes time and bandwidth to relay information and write articles. Try and guess why the person wrote the information and see if this alters the context of the information. If some Oil baron writes about how global warming is a myth and about how certain areas of the earth are in fact, not heating up, you can probably guess why he’s trying to brush off fears of ecological impact on the Earth (Oil tends not to sell if people seek greener alternatives). Too be fair, step 1 is way more important this than this one. It doesn’t matter what person relays the information, if it is true then it will always be true regardless if person saying it is a liar. But if the person is shady and clearly not trustworthy, it might be best to check if the information is misrepresented or if you are looking at the right information websites. For example, Sea Shepherd has almost unanimous control over western media, to the point that it appears that they could fart and the media will talk about how awesome that was the for the environment. Meanwhile on closer inspection, certain blogs and non-western news sites will show evidence that Sea Shepherd has cheated in certain departments especially when it came to crashing their small skimmer ady gil (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-OAe-V0z2DU notice that ady gil speeds up to make the collision possible) and getting shot (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u7Sz8uH0k-Q). The issue regarding Sea Shepherd is very emotional and filled with people who want to protect the environment at all costs and several who just appear to be in it for the personality cult. It should also be noted that IWR (the whaling group that Sea Shepherd is trying to shut down) is definitely insidious but the it doesn’t help when the group who has come to fix the problem is just as muddled with controversy as the group that is clearly operating in violation of international law. Step 2 is to ask why the information was written and expressed in this manner and to understand the motives of the information source. In this case it might actually be a good idea to abstain.
3. What do you have to gain from knowing this information?
There’s an old adage that knowledge is useless if you don’t do anything with it. After having assessed whether the information is true, what the information is trying to get you to do and whether or not the information is misrepresented; its now time to decide what conclusions you yourself can make with the information. Do you ignore what you now know? Do you choose to make changes to your life? Its up to you and if you have mastered information literacy, there’s little chance for you get involved in someone else’s personality cult.
I think I might write more but I think this enough.
Final edit: fixed formating. For some reason the spaces weren’t showing up and the text became a blob. I believe it has been fixed
