  Logan Paul slammed for filming suicide victim in vlog
Posted by: ShineCero - 01-02-2018, 07:31 PM - Forum: Boogaloo Donut - Replies (9)

Quote:A popular YouTuber has been heavily criticised for publishing a video showing the body of a suicide victim.

Logan Paul, who has more than 15 million YouTube subscribers, posted a vlog on December 31 called 'We found a dead body in the Japanese Suicide Forest'.

The video opens with a disclaimer about the importance of seeking help when grappling with depression, before Paul addresses the camera directly.

"This is the most real vlog I've ever posted on this channel," the 22-year-old said. "I think this definitely marks a moment in YouTube history."

In the video, Paul - who is American - visits Japan with several of his friends. They made a trip to Aokigahara, a forest at the base of Mt Fuji known for being a common suicide destination.

Before entering the forest, Paul and his friends joke in the car park, with Paul taking care to don his Gucci jacket before they go in. He also repeatedly mispronounces Mt Fuji as 'Fiji', and insists that popular bottled water brand Fiji Water is produced at the mountain.

After walking a short distance into the forest, the group discover a body hanging from a tree.

"I really hate to say this, I think there's someone hanging right there," Paul says to the camera. "I'm not even f***ing kidding."

Paul and his friends film themselves approaching the body, which was fully blurred out when seen from a distance. However there are several close-up shots of the body where only the person's face was blurred.

"Yo are you alive? Are you f***ing with us?" Paul can be heard asking. The person filming stood very close to the body, with Paul noting the man's "purple hands" and that his pockets were still full.

At several points in the video, Paul turns the camera on himself to discuss his feelings of shock. He reiterates that this was the "most real" moment he has ever captured on film and claims the group initially intended to "focus on the haunted aspect" of Aokigahara before finding the body.

Commenters have criticised Paul for behaving inappropriately in the video, such as circling the body with the camera and zooming in on it while screaming "What the f*** is going on?" and "It doesn't make sense bro".

When the person filming him remarks that he "doesn't feel good", Paul mockingly asks him, "What, you never stand next to a dead guy?" before laughing.

After they return to the car park, an official tells Paul he could not enter the restricted area, to which he replies, "You told us a little too late bro, we've seen a little too much already," while laughing.

Commenters on the YouTube video called the vlog "despicable" and "disrespectful and disgusting".

People have also taken to social media to condemn Paul's actions.

logan paul really made a video in a suicide forest made jokes only cared about a haunted aspect, found a dead body and continue filming and zoomed into the dead body then talked about depression while filming the body didn’t think that the person they found has a family. idiot.

— per la (@begsforyou) 

logan paul exploited a persons suicide and FILMED the body after knowing the person was actually dead. if you stan that, youre disgusting. logan paul is disgusting.

— nelly (@GUCCIFlNN) 

i decided to watch the video just to give it a dislike and It’s way worse than just the snippet on twitter. he literally says this makes youtube history, as if this is an achievement or ground-breaking event. logan paul is disgusting 

— david (@thelovelykordei) 

Paul has since deleted the video from his channel, which had been viewed at least 6.3 million times.

Summary: Humans have dwindled massively ever since monsters invaded the earth. After 5000 years, a teddy bear with strange powers seeks to bring down the monster society through peaceful means.

Starting with a New Years resolution. I'm planning on doing a page every day on completing a single chapter. Now when I have a swing of things, I'm aiming to have at least 5 chapters done by the end of March.

I collected a few more portable drives that have more documents, but require me to use different passwords that were scribbled down on paper from long ago. Once I manage to access them through the old archival tools, I will add to this section of the database.

It's a short story, written as a challenge to write something under 2,000 words, with a writing prompt! Maybe I'll write more on this if I get the time to work on it, haha.

Basically the prompt asked me to write something about a mad scientist. I didn't want to write a literally mad scientist, so I went with something that would make somebody think it's mad or impossible to do! Does have a bit of some retro sci-fi feels to it, but not really. And I went with a different style of first-person narration! A diary entry series, but as if it were found inside some old floppy disk you picked up while cleaning out an old decrepit lab or something.

Anyhoo, I hope you enjoyed it!

  The FCC has unveiled its plan to repeal its net neutrality rules
Posted by: ShineCero - 11-21-2017, 02:39 PM - Forum: Boogaloo Donut - Replies (14)

Quote:Federal regulators announced a plan Tuesday that would give Internet providers broad powers to determine what websites and online services their customers can see and use, and at what cost.

The move sets the stage for a crucial vote next month at the Federal Communications Commission that could reshape the entire digital ecosystem. The FCC’s Republican chairman, Ajit Pai, has made undoing the government's net neutrality rules one of his top priorities, and Tuesday's move hands a win to broadband companies such as AT&T, Verizon and Comcast.

Pai is taking aim at regulations that were approved two years ago under a Democratic presidency and that sought to make sure all Internet content, whether from big or small companies, would be treated equally by Internet providers.

The decision will be put to a vote at the agency's Dec. 14 meeting in Washington. It is expected to pass, with Republicans controlling three of the commission's five seats.

In a news release, Pai said his proposal would prevent the government from “micromanaging the Internet.” Under the new rules, he said, the FCC would “simply require Internet service providers to be transparent about their practices.” For example, if a provider chose to block or slow certain websites, or gave preferable treatment to sites and content that it owned or had partnerships with, that provider would have to inform consumers of its policy on an easily accessible website.

Violations of the transparency rule could lead to fines by the FCC, said senior agency officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the matter more freely.


The proposal also would shift some enforcement responsibility to the Federal Trade Commission, which can sue companies for violating the commitments or statements they have made to the public. Under Pai's plan, a broadband company under investigation could be penalized by one agency or the other, but not both.

Relying more heavily on Internet providers' promises on net neutrality is a departure from the current rules, which lay out clear bans against selectively blocking or slowing websites, as well as speeding up websites that agree to pay the providers a fee.

Lifting the rules will allow Internet providers to experiment with new ways to make money. In recent years, some broadband companies, such as AT&T, have tried offering discounts on Internet service to Americans so long as they agree to let the company monitor their Web browsing history, for example. Other companies, such as Verizon, have exempted their own proprietary apps from mobile data limits in a bid to drive user engagement. The practice, known as zero-rating, was criticized by the previous FCC as a potential violation of net neutrality principles, but Pai rescinded his predecessor's findings upon taking office.
