The Jimquisition: Paul Ryan (Not That One)

I’m sorry if you’re tired of hearing about Brash Games or its owner, Paul Ryan (Not That One).

Unfortunately, those who were recently part of his libelous, treacherous, potentially illegal manifesto don’t have a choice.

And now the Cleaner Is Come.

I wonder what Not That One is going to do next? It’s not often we get this presented so directly.

I can imagine the other Paul Ryan having just as condescending a perspective on mental illness. It’s heartwarming to see the aforementioned writers stand up in defiance to this guy’s bullshittery. My sincerest respects for them. I understand the thralls that mental illness can put people in and it can be difficult when dealing with demeaning, patronising, hypocritical turd-weasels like that guy. There are plenty of those types to go around as it is.

Wow, the last time I saw Jim this angry at someone… well, they ended up committing Digital Homicide to their career. I don’t know why but insanely angry journalist Jim is my favourite Jim. Sure, it’s fun seeing him piss off Nintendo fanboys or rip into video game cliches, but actually going in on these companies doing something truly awful and pulling the reciepts out to show just what evil fuckery they’re doing… it’s goddamn amazing

Throwing shade on others’ mental illnesses seems like a bad idea when he himself appears to suffer from an extreme one based on his rant. I personally hope the writers get together and sue his sorry as for everything he is worth because of his illegal disclosure. Fuck this guy. Fuck this guy in the ass.

Being a [♪SKELETON WARRIORS♫] isn’t a mental illness… it’s just being a [♪SKELETON WARRIORS♫].

Accusing him of mental illness is pretty shitty. Let it go to the courts, and let justice be served. No need for names. He’s done enough of that.

Maybe I misread what he wrote, but I thought he said he also suffered from a mental illness.
There were so many iterations of this blog/rant though, that I may have just thought that’s what I read. I don’t know.
Either way, mental illness isn’t the issue; his problem is he’s an asshole, with a severe lack of judgement and self-control. He has neither, and needs a large helping of both. He’s managed to effectively destroy himself with this bullshit.
Mental illnesses can be treated, and are no one’s business. Being a fucking douche canoe may be incurable.

As someone who has actual mental issues myself(Asperger’s specifically) I absolutely despise people like Ryan, he’s right up there with Alex St. John as far as having despicable attitudes towards people with mental health issues.

Lately i’ve noticed people using the word “autistic” as an actual insult.

Matrim
Guest
Matrim

Oh, they’ve been doing that for years. I remember folks throwing around terms like “autistic temper tantrum” to disparage people since at least 2008, wouldn’t surprise me if it had Brennan going on ever since autism entered into the public consciousness.

My theory is that autistic became an insult because nobody’s allowed to use “retard” anymore. So they just moved on to another mental illness to morph into a derogatory term. Not realizing that doesn’t make anything better. They’re just doing the exact same thing they did with retard. I can’t wait until it’s no longer okay to use autistic in that way so they can move onto something else. I won’t suggest what I don’t want to be a part of that.

darksteel6

Yeah that sounds about right.

Tom James

Sadly that’s pretty much what always happens. Moron, imbecile, spastic and many more were all medical/psychological terms originally that got turned into insults.

Being an Aspie is what lets me code alone in a room for 20 hours at a time. It’s why I make 5 times as much as my parents.

It’s pretty funny that the word is used as an insult. I don’t get it. Damn right I’m on the autistic spectrum and proud.

darksteel6
Guest
darksteel6

20 hours damn! I could never do that myself.

I will say I don’t like how the DSM has changed Asperger’s to just “the Spectrum”, IMO that’s far too broad of a scope, to put it simply, there’s a massive difference between Rain Man and Mercury Rising, putting everyone with autism under “the Spectrum” hurts more people then it helps.

So I don’t care what the DSM says, I still say I have Asperger’s.

Yeah. I can’t even sit still for twenty minutes dude. Respect everyone who succeeds regardless of how or why. Props to you.

Kinda wish I could be in a room with this Paul Ryan so I could verbally emasculate the little [♪SKELETON WARRIORS♫] until, just with cutting words, I ensure there was no way his balls could ever produce the testosterone needed for him to form any piddling offspring that he could inflict upon the world.

I’m stunned. As someone who has struggled with depression for years, hearing that this Conniving, Underhanded, Naughty, Treacherous bastard violated these people’s privacy like that is… it’s evil.
Thank you, Jim, for never letting up on these vile, poisonous freaks who seem to think that ethics and treating people with respect are fucking optional.

I don’t want to sound like a cun- (SKELETON WARRIORS) but is it just me or do all of these douchebags seem like English is not their first language? I’m not saying they’re all Nigerian Princes or foreigners are not be trusted, but it does unfortunately make broken English a signifier of scammers and scumbags, which is a shame.

I get the feeling it’s like angry Youtube comments. The writer is so focused on saying what they want to say that they don’t take the time to do a spelling/grammar check.

YoDude

I personally never bother spell checking. I do most my Internet stuff on my cell now though so I tend to not really need to do it.

I think in this case, the guy is fucking terrible at grammar and spelling. Brash Games is based in the UK I think, so there’s zero fucking excuse to not know how to type properly.

I made my less than serious comment having paused the episode 3 mins in.

Fuck this reprehensible piece of shit, everything he stands for and big up all the writers who have had the steel to come out against him. As ever Jimbo, thank god for you for exposing this utter bollocks

One question Jim, you keep on saying “Not that one” but seriously, have YOU ever seen them in the same room at the same time?! Huh?! Have you?!
And as for David fucking James.
Well hes a gooner so the less said about him the better. But I dont think weve ever seen THEM in the same room at the same time EITHER.

THE PLOT THICKENS!!!!(hl3 confirmed yadda yadda)

To be fair I doubt a guy in ancient Arabia was named Paul.

Loona Chan

To be fair, I don’t think he ever lived in Arabia, and also to be fair, he probably wasn’t the shittiest apostle. I am willing to argue with you for a very long time on this issue if you like.

SilentPony

SilentPony

What, that the apostle ‘named’ Paul wasn’t Arab or that he was the shittiest apostle?

Loona Chan
Guest
Loona Chan

The area Jesus was doing his stuff in was not Arabia, and Paul went up to Anatolia (what we now call Turkey) after that, which is also not Arabia. He also probably wasn’t very arab racially but whodafuk knows its all messed up around there.

YoDude

*the bible isn’t real*

Nick Martin

No, he was absolutely the shittiest apostle. Apologist for slavery, raging misogynist and responsible for pretty much all of the crappy dude stuff in the Church, and a fairly big hypocrite if you read through all of his letters.

Also, I’m getting fucking tired of “Oh, how can they give 2 to this game that avarages 7 on metacritic” type of argument. How can you operate a review site if you don’t even understand what’s the point of a fucking critic in the first place? Good God, coming to this site has opened my eyes to so many things that just piss me the fuck off! I am happy and pissed!

I thought for a second Ryan was referencing Jim’s Yooka-Laylee review.

“I am happy and pissed” needs to be on a T-Shirt. It makes me curious to know if this was a mindset before Metacritic was a thing. Like, if a movie critic gave a movie a bad review would people ask him how he could do that when Siskel and Ebert gave it two thumbs up?

Sperium3000
