talking about an asshole
there's a certain about of sympathy i have for notch tbh. not much but it's nonzero
he made more money than god and it went to his head hard, he burned every bridge he ever had and he sits on the pile of cash he thought would have made him happy by now
with basically no one left who likes him at all to talk to he's found solace in the alt-right, which is basically their recruitment strategy
none of this is an excuse, he's a shitty person who brought it all on himself and can rot in hell, but it's kind of a sad story
i guess this is better phrased as "it's kind of sad how this can happen to someone" than "it's sad that this happened to notch", if that makes any sense
