Jacob keeps signing up with emails with the same names he's already used as his 'friends', so, y'know. Those just get found a little faster

Are you saying Jacob was Chaos Undivided? If so then kudos for the effort in fashioning Jacob as a character because Chaos was entirely different.

If that's correct was Jacob the same guy as Ultimate Paragon, Lana, Dynamic Dragon et al? Just doing a borat impression.

The way I understood Sigma's comment is that Jacob keeps making new accounts and she keeps taking them down before we even notice them.

SCarpelan - that's not as fun (but probably correct)

So was that "real American" probably. It was just that new accounts were automatically accepted and the mods were really, really lazy. They only showed up on the forum after checking their email to see that a lot of people had once again reported some user. (The forum was built on the side of another website and the owners didn't really care about it.) Honestly, I'm still not sure if the mods finally learned how to IP ban him or if he just got bored.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

Jake's kinda simple, ain't he?

I give it a week before they're back.

Less then a week and he's back.

A week is usually the conservative estimate with these kinds of people tbh.

No, I have no reason to believe Chaos and Jacob are the same person. Just a bunch of accounts he made that never got approved, so y'all never saw them.

Well, FWIW, P&G currently considers the ad a success, according to CNN Money. But I think it's too early to tell.

I was looking all over for numbers when some manosphere men on Youtube were making claims that the boycott was working. I highly doubt that a company like Gillette was even going feel so much a dent and this article proves it.

Maybe you're right, but I think it's important to remember that effects on a company's bottom line aren't always immediate.

https://morningconsult.com/form/gillette-commercial-survey/

    Before watching the ad, 42% of consumers said they agreed Gillette “shared their values.” After watching, that figure increased to 71%.
    65% said the ad made them more or much more likely to purchase Gillette.
    84% of women and 77% of men responded positively or neutral to the campaign.

Looks like not many people were really upset about the ad. Despite the second row there, the study points out that there was no meaningful change in sales so at the very least this clearly did not upset many people. And particularly those who were customers of "Dollar Shave Club" and such said they now think of Gillette in a more positive way.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
