Am I Crow, Jackdaw, or Jay?

Just analyze the eggs I lay.

I need some help to understand,

From Reddit legend /u/Unidan.

17

u/edweirdo Aug 13 '22

Nicely done.

God, how long ago was the u/Unidan scandal?

30

u/NonTimeo Aug 13 '22

Listen, my children, about a man,

And the tragic fate of /u/Unidan,

On the twenty-ninth July, in 2014:

Hardly a Summer Child has seen,

Or remembered that famous shadow ban.

What was the Unidan scandal?

7

u/edweirdo Aug 13 '22

Unidan was a reddit power user about a decade ago. He was very knowledgeable on a lot of science-related topics. He was everywhere, too. People used to summon him in threads to get his input.

Then, strangely, he got into an argument with another user about the difference between a crow and a jackdaw in a thread about a video of a black bird doing something weird. It was a proper flamewar, from what I remember, too. They were really going at each other. It was such a strange hill to choose to die on, too. I mean, of all the great comments and content he contributed, this crow/jackdaw thing seemed like a non-issue.

Shortly after, Unidan was gone. Just disappeared. Turns out, he got the banhammer from the admins for Vote Manipulation. He apparently had a bunch of alts and was using them to inflate the karma of his own posts and comments and to attack/downvote the guy he got into the argument with (and likely others, as well).

I think he got caught trying to circumvent his ban with other alts, too.

It was a huge flex by the admins, at the time. Unidan was a proper reddit celebrity who was busted at the hieght of his popularity.

It has to have been about 7 or 8 years now. Cause that happened a couple years before I burned my old account (too much cringe to syphon through) and this account is 6 years old now

Hey listen man. Making me use the Google at 1:15a to look up the story of a banned account is just mean.

u/Doktor_Vem Aug 13 '22

Wait, who's u/Unidan? Their profile says they're apart of the 12-year club, but their account age says they've been a redditor since "just now" which doesn't make much sense

I feed some neighborhood crows and that's definitely how they strut. Very noble creatures. They can also be pretty funny sometimes. But appearances aside, they clearly know they're hot shit. Very much like humans in a lot of ways.

Is that a jackdaw?

8

u/quentinislive Aug 13 '22

Here’s the thing…you said a jackdaw is a crow

13

u/Tiny_Dinky_Daffy_69 Aug 13 '22

Here's the thing. You said a "jackdaw is a crow."

Is it in the same family? Yes. No one's arguing that.

As someone who is a scientist who studies crows, I am telling you, specifically, in science, no one calls jackdaws crows. If you want to be "specific" like you said, then you shouldn't either. They're not the same thing.

If you're saying "crow family" you're referring to the taxonomic grouping of Corvidae, which includes things from nutcrackers to blue jays to ravens.

So your reasoning for calling a jackdaw a crow is because random people "call the black ones crows?" Let's get grackles and blackbirds in there, then, too.

Also, calling someone a human or an ape? It's not one or the other, that's not how taxonomy works. They're both. A jackdaw is a jackdaw and a member of the crow family. But that's not what you said. You said a jackdaw is a crow, which is not true unless you're okay with calling all members of the crow family crows, which means you'd call blue jays, ravens, and other birds crows, too. Which you said you don't.

It's okay to just admit you're wrong, you know?
