Cards Against Humanity—which literally bills itself as being “for horrible people”—has always been a very complicated game for those who invested in social politics and feminism. Sure, making jokes about wanting to bang genetically engineered super soldiers is always a good time, but the game also has a history of cards with rape jokes and transphobic material on them, which is categorically not. Due to the actions of one of the game’s creators, defending it is about to get a lot more complicated.
Hatred‘s trailer made waves earlier this back in October for being… well, pretty disturbing (here’s a link, but know that it’s incredibly violent before you click). Basically, it’s about a serial mass murderer who goes on a ‘genocidal crusade’ against innocent civilians because he hates the world—you know, every goth middle schooler’s dream! But now the game’s getting attention not for its hyper violence, but for getting banned off of Steam Greenlight.
Just like the Insane Clown Posse, we’ve also got a theory about magic and miracles. They must not exist, because if they did, then somebody would have used one or the other to stop the execs at Fuse from allowing the Insane Clown Posse Theater television show from happening and it is happening. They’re filming it right now in New York, and it’s set to premiere on Wednesday, July 26th. May God have mercy on all our souls.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
