Welcome to the official LiveLeak blog. In here we'll be posting about developments, issues, and anything else related to the site.

Site issues e.t.c.

Entry Added: 8 days ago By: LL_Hayden

We're still in the process of undertaking a complete overhaul of the site's back end. We're doing what we can to minimise disruption to the site but there may be the odd issue here or there for quite some time. Disruption will obviously be kept to a minimum but please be aware this isn't a case of the site breaking down, it's a case of the site being built up.

When there's news I'll pass it on but for now please hang in there.

Snowflakes, snowflakes everywhere!

Entry Added: Apr-10-2017 By: LL_Hayden

One day you're cock of the walk, the next a feather duster.

It appears we're having another shift in ideology here on LL. Whilst we were apparently Muslim haters and Jew controlled media we're now raging anti-semites and liberals. Why? Because a video was featured of some party attended by religious Jews where a kid was wearing a Donald Trump mask.

Look at how you're reacting. Those who would be quick to call others snowflakes for speaking out against videos or comments mocking Democrats, or Muslims are quite literally demanding we fire the person responsible for featuring this video. A video filmed by Jews and shared by Jews but apparently anti-semitic.

Doubly amusing are some of the comments in there from Jew haters who continually whine at us because we're Zionist shills. Oh they're loving it, they're all happy, they're interpreting a video from a party in the worst possible way. Do you guys realise how shamefully pathetic you look? You're applauding people dicking around at a party as being indicative of a global conspiracy FFS.

What I've noticed over ten years of LL is that polarisation of the people has grown worse, people's attributing their being offended to some kind of indicator that a site is complicit with whoever their enemy is has gotten worse, and our sense of entitlement has gone through the roof. This isn't a LiveLeak thing though, it's a people thing.

Whatever you believe is your business. I would never seek to change it. But the whole "You're with us or against us" argument is a massive fail and one I'd expect from children.

Oh, and for one guy waxing lyrical about the demographic of LiveLeak. Compared to averages we're slightly down on Caucasion and Afro American but above average with Hispanic and Asian viewers. If you're going to preach to me at least make sure it's not about something I have stats on.

One chap also said we're all "pedo cucks" which sounds like a terribly complex thing to be.
Relax guys, I'm sure you'll see whoever it is you don't like exploded on LL before too long and you can get back to the exciting process of calling anyone who disagrees with you a snowflake or a cuck.

Cheers

It's a funny old world.

It's 1am here, I'm back at home after another LL show and everyone's in bed. What better time to have a chat? If I'm honest I was expecting a lot more flack for tonight's show than I got. Yes, the usual suspects are jolly upset but they're talking so it's all good. It's a tough call though with this sort of thing.

Before the Tommy Robinson interview there was quite a bit of dialogue with myself and others. How should we approach it, stuff like that. I decided how to approach it on the day of the show, this is LiveLeak. LiveLeak has always supposed to be a platform where we're exposed to opposing views, to things that challenge us, things that anger us, or delight us. It's never been a single point of view, editorial lead site. So I decided any interviews should reflect that, the guest should be allowed to speak. Questions should be asked but I should remove as much of myself from the interview as possible and let the users decide based on what they've heard. Just like people should do with the media. View it, learn more, decide how you feel about it. And weren't some people upset!

You see, I've been told in no uncertain terms I should have sat there shouting at him, calling him a racist, and badgering him on every little point. I should totally have put him in his place. People were jolly vexed at me giving a platform to Tommy Robinson. I roundly told them to go fuck themselves, they don't have to watch and I don't have to do everything to please them. The man has a story to tell, we will hear it, we might ask questions but we won't batter them with our opinion. I stand by that.

Tonight I had an actual Muslim on the show. He was smart, well spoken, and from a sect which believes they believe in the pure form of Islam and the other sects have perverted it. Those are his beliefs, those are his views, I thought it was interesting to hear. And weren't some people upset!

Apparently I should have sat there screaming at him for half an hour and thrown in some racial slurs for good measure because that's what some people watching believe. Fuck learning, fuck listening to views which challenge our own, just give him pure shit because he's a muslim and there are muslims doing shitty things in the world and...and...he's a muslim!

To you guys I roundly say, fuck you. LiveLeak is a platform. He didn't convert anyone, he didn't excuse anything, just gave his views and beliefs and you get to choose whether it was interesting or not or whether he was truthful.

Yes, it would be interesting to get an Islamic fundamentalist on there and drag them over the coals, I doubt I could help myself, but they're amazingly unwilling to bother with me or LiveLeak, go figure.

It's embarassing. Not the hate for Tommy or Qasim, that's by the by. What's embarrassing are those who scream for me having them on, those who think they should be silenced because you're the very people who scream to the high heavens when you find yourself censored on LL. You guys are supposed to be a cut above, you sneer at other social media platforms. Be a cut above. Criticise, pull apart, argue, do all that but don't ask I cut people down or silence them just because you don't like what they have to say, that's weak.

Right, that's a long one and I'm off to bed. G'night.

P.S. Yes it does fucking suck Troll Central isn't up and running. Yes it sucks there's a long delay on the broadcast. But we're in the middle of massive changes here and doing what we can.
