For those that were in the GB chat night during UPF, wondering what the prevailing thought is about the roughly 10-15 minutes of "acab" dominating the chat. For those that don't know, this is one of about 20 symbols the ADL classifies as a hate symbol.
I'm going to give the community the benefit of the doubt and assume that it was *not* used in the white surpremacy context that KKK skinheads members tattoo themselves with. That said, it made me extremely aware that this website has changed that I even had to ask this question. Maybe 1-2 people spoke up and said something to the effect that they weren't comfortable with the direction chat was going but were quickly drowned out, and that was that. ACAB wins, I guess.
I'm not always in UPF chat these days, but it felt like I was taken to another community entirely, wondering how off base I am with this sentiment.
