We need a solution to this to be honest. Can't we just make sure that there is a segment dedicated in the op of every THQN related post about the whole affair to inform those unaware, and at the same time let the people who want to talk about the games/don't care do so in the thread itself? This is supposed to be a dedicated gaming forum after all, and threads like these were after all partly what gave neogaf it's bad reputation as a hostile and unfriendly place, and isn't avoiding Gaf's mistakes one of era's major goals?

I don't claim to know everything about the AMA or 8chan, but I think "a known den of literal child pornography, in a way that makes it's extremely known that you know full well what 8chan is" carries with it a high burden of proof. Does 8chan put a banner on their homepage that says "pedophiles welcome here"? Or is this a case of some clueless schmuck in marketing who just figures "according to my kid's friends, it's some web site that's popular with a lot of our players"? Because my brief encounters with online marketing people tells me that they can be dense.

GamingThread Halo MCC development update
Reason User warned: Unnecessarily antagonistic attitude towards a fellow user
I'm pretty sure we were requesting it in 2014 and 2015, around the time you, personally, were dodging every topic this game came up in. Now you're back to bicker semantics about what a press release is. There's been too much hemming and hawing and obfuscation on this subject for me to commit to any "open conversation" posted on your website. Up to and including your patch announcement late last year. I'll believe it when I see the game running properly. And that doesn't mean matchmaking fixes, it means not falling through the floor and a myriad of other glitches you guys still avoid acknowledging in favor of blaming the prior iteration of the Xbox live architecture for this games other problems. Of course, even if fixed there's almost no chance of a large player base returning at this point so I'm pretty sure my dream of reliving old Halo is dead anyway. But I've still got the Xbox in the house so I guess it's always been mission accomplished for MS.

It’s a topic that’s been rehashed for literally years at this point, and yet people are still “excited” about the “development” of a broken game that was sold for years and is only now being supposedly fixed in 2018.

It doesn't even make sense. Their deaths and lack of justice exposes deep problems. For example, part of the reason US war crimes are allowed is white supremacy.

EtcetEraThread WWE wrestler Lars Sullivan exposed as a racist, homophobe, and all-around terrible person
Reason User Banned (5 Days): Trolling over a series of posts
No, I think WWE booking is mostly terrible and I'm going to a local indy show here in Seattle this weekend. The irony is I've actually spent more money on non-WWE wrestling in the past year than a vast majority of the people in this place and places like r/SquaredCircle who continually complain about the WWE and how it's killing wrestling. I just don't think my personal opinion of the WWE means that it's doomed financially or that appealing to smarks will actually create a competitive wrestling environment. The only thing worse than Vince McMahon booking is the fantasy booking I read on the regular here and other places. But yes, I will admit it's easy to feel superior to people who stan for Kenny "Let Me Create a Fake Gay Gimmick" Omega.

The warmongering, power hungry, colonising imperialist finally snaps after hitting rock bottom, and does good on stuff she's wanted to do in the past (burn cities and armies to the dust), and people are genuinely completely shocked and surprised.

Reason User Banned (Permanent): trolling over a series of posts with rhetoric associated with hate groups.
I’m not speaking of open marriages. I’m taking about partnering with more than one woman. Some call it polygamy. Scripturally there were many men than had more than one wife. Having more than one woman around in the family could have many benefits but we’re trained to think it’s not ok yet we have this movement where women are allowed to cuck their husbands and that’s ok. Having multiple men’s seed as well as attachments is a disaster waiting to happen. There was a recent article about the effects of women trying to behave like men sexually that I found interesting. As far as cheating goes, some men are scummy but I believe some just don’t do well with women trying to reign over them in the household.

GamingThread ProJared Allegedly Creeped On, Fished for & Sent Nudes to Fans, including Underaged Fans [UPDATE: NormalBoots disassociates; manipulated fans for sex]
Reason User banned (1 week): concern trolling over series of posts, account in junior phase
From what I understand, Heidi spoke about that days before Jared made his (weird and dumb) statement. She made it public first.Good people can cheat, yes. The problem is Jared seems rotten to the core. Fishing for underaged people photos or trying to groom them is disgusting.I read the post in question and it doesn't really change what I think on the matter. I don't dispute her right to make it public. ProJared is a public person and even without that element, no one has the right to contest hers. I dispute feeling the need to get involved on the cheating matter. She made it public, made other people acknowledge what he was (which is a good thing), that doesn't mean all of those people on Twitter/Facebook should get involved and jump on the case by throwing insult/hot takes and such toward Jared for the cheating. That's unneeded. It's just a matter of education, you don't put your hands in other publics affairs, especially when it comes to relationship. That's life tips 101. That's also about humility, when something like that happen, you need to react as a mature person, not jumping on it with insult/"higher than thou" attitude. You can shit on him all day long for grooming underaged people or fishing for their pictures, because that's something that put under-aged people in danger, people who are highly vulnerable, but shitting on him publicly for cheating on his wife ? Nah, it's their problem and as much as some people on internet don't want to anknowledge it, it happens, even to great people (which Jared isn't, given the other things, of course). About the second part of the post, I still disagree on supporting people getting involved like so many do. You can show Heidi your support, which is a normal and mature thing to do. Now insulting her ex-husband for cheating, shaming him for that, making dumb memes, trying to go full "higher than thou" attitude while everyone has some skulls in their closets... all of that is just disturbing to me. Supporting Heidi is enough in my opinion, no need to go shit on Jared for the cheating part of what he has done. Especially when you can shit on him all day for grooming underaged people or just manipulating his fans to get naked pictures of them.

EtcetEraThread Jon Snow's story arc broke Game Of Thrones for me. [Open Spoilers]
Reason User warned: posting spoilers in a thread title
There are roughly a million things wrong with Game of Thrones's later seasons, which are seasons 5-8 and some major cracks were already popping up as early as Season 4. Usually you see the obvious complaints and justifiable complaints with theses. Several character plot threads were for a lack of a better word...bad (Sansa, Arya ,Jaime ,Stannis ,Sam,Tyrion, Brienne, Littlefinger, Varys..etc) Each of these have significant problems that only get worse the longer the show went on and this all stems from the fact that the writers not only changed some major things from the books but also failed to give sufficient enough justification story wise for these change. For a source material as complex and difficult to adapt as ASOIAF it becomes increasingly difficult to make any changes and not have the entire house of cards completely fall over. All of these changes bring MAJOR problems for the show and it results in a story that is falling apart rapidly. But here is one in particular that rarely gets talked about. It's Jon's Resurrection in season 6. Now maybe it does but i haven't exactly been lurking in any major forums GOT/ASOIAF forums lately. So what's the problem? Well, for me it's the complete lack of meaningful set-up and a complete lack of consequence to Jon's death and his resurrection in the show. Now i won''t try to compare this to the books because Jon's resurrection, will presumably happen at some point, probobaly near the end of the Winds of Winter...which as all of you know hasn't even come out yet and has a higher than 0% chance of never coming out. So it's difficult if not impossible to compare. This still doesn't make the show's execution of this concept any easier to swallow as it's completely nonsensical. For the death of one of the central characters and for this to be a big enough event to be a season cliffhanger, even one as deeply flawed as season 5, the way this got resolved at the beginning of season 6 was almost enough for me to drop the show. Now lets be clear about something here. Everybody knew that Jon will get resurrected. By everyone i mean we the viewers, not the characters. If the writers wanted to surprise viewers then this was the worst kept secret in history and they have failed spectacularly as prior to the season 6 premier everyone and their dog as well as every unborn child knew, that Jon Snow will be brought back to life in season 6. That's how obvious this was and the writers had to have known that this was obvious. It's not the act itself that's bad but everything around it. So Season 6 starts and Davos who has no affiliation with Jon runs out in the middle of the night and decides to put his corpse on a table. Why? Well i would really like to know the answer as well because there is literally no explanation given for why Davos suddenly cares about Jon or even what the hell is he even trying to accomplish here by risking his life for Jon's corpse. He gets help from a bunch of other members of the Night's Watch who also have practically zero reason to risk their lives defending Jon's corpse, because he is dead and as far as everyone in-universe should know at that point is that nothing could ever bring him back to life. If something could it would undoubtedly be a BIG DEAL. Anyway Thorne, Olly and a bunch of other Night's Watch members decided to go to war all over a corpse. If Thorne and the other Night's watch members were worried about something happening? to Jon while he was dead then they really should have buried his corpse or just burned it to prevent him from becoming a wight as soon as they killed him. Instead we get these nonsensical events that just leave me dying for an explanation. So anyway after a bit of fighting Davos eventually goes to Melisandre who he somehow thinks that she could resurrect the dead despite never actually seeing this. Heck Melisandre never sees this act in the show herself. So why should or could she know how to bring Jon back from the dead? No explanation. If Davos somehow knew about this and Melisandre knew that she could do this then why on earth didn't she ever do this to bring back a number of Stannis's men who were killed? No explanation. Also was anyone else find it strange how Davos suddenly cares for Melisandre in these first few episodes, despite everything that happened between them in previous seasons or that he doesn't bother to ask her what exactly happened that lead Stannis and his entire army getting wiped out immediately but no, instead the priority here to Davos is getting Jon back to life Well short and to the point she does. HORRAY THIS IS THE BIGGEST DEAL IN THE ENTIRETY OF WESTEROS. EVERYONE MUST KNOW ABOUT THIS AND EVERY LIVING BEING SHOULD GET RIGHT TO THE POINT TO TALK ABOUT THIS AMAZING MIRA....oh wait... that's not what happens. Instead the entire thing plays out as more or less like a big shrug after the next episode. I mean yes, some characters comment on how weird it is but that's it. Jon isn't impacted by this in the slightest in fact he is exactly the same character as he was in season 5. His resurrection is so inconsequential that it might as well not have happened. Seriously i have never been more perplexed by a story development like this. It's like this type of thing happens every other week in this universe. The only reason this happened is because it was used as a flimsy excuse for Jon to be able to abandon the Night's Watch without technically breaking them. That's it. Other characters like Sansa later don't mention this or any of the other Northern Lords who should know about the fact that they are talking to a dead man. It comes across like a thing that the writers desperately try to sweep under the rug as soon as it has served it's plot purpose, never mind the fact that it breaks internal logic that nobody in-universe cares about this. Ramsay doesn't mention it. He is at-least the only one who brings up the fact that Jon deserted the Night's Watch. Which nobody else does and that leaves me to assume that everybody knows that Jon got killed and got resurrected but is not really interested in mentioning any of this or be at-least a little bit phased by this miraculous event. Now to be fair to the show it did kind of , sort of set this up by introducing a character in the third season who was resurrected six times. However Beric Dondarrion was mentioned both in the books and the show to have been significantly impacted by being brought back. He is essential a completely different character post resurrection than he was pre eesurrection. It's still a mystery as to why only he got resurrected and why seemingly the Lord of Light tends to have favorites as pretty much no one in the show aside from Jon and Beric gets resurrected. This is different in the books as one other major character gets resurrected who could potentially play a role in answering these mysteries in the future books but that's neither here nor there but because the show has dropped this character and the show decided to ignore Beric for two entire seasons. It just comes across as contrived to bring Jon back in such a way. Melisandre never even sees how Beric got brought back to life, so that she suddenly knows how to bring Jon back is incredibly forced and she doesn't even do it in the same way. So am i now to assume that there are multiple ways to bring a character back from the dead? Now George R R Martin has stated that he always disliked how Gandalf came back from the dead and became essentially more powerful once he became Gandalf the White. Based on that quote it would seem like this entire thing was a massive misfire. Jon's resurrection in the show is nothing more than a glorified power up. Everything goes his way until the end of the season without any cost from this event. It comes across like Jon has won the ultimate lottery in a sense. This goes against the spirit of the source material in pretty much every way and is in fact a "cheat". I cant even fathom why this was executed so awkwardly and without any real meaning. The writers just sweep this under the rug, because even they probobaly know how badly this was handled and don't want to deal with it. Imagine something as nonsensical like this happening in the earlier seasons and the show would have been dead in the water most likely. I used to be really annoyed with season 5 and some aspects of season 4 but the way this part in particular played out in season 6 broke the show for me. It was the moment i knew that it's no longer really good and it has only slipped more and more into schlock territory from there. By the time it ends i wonder what kind of reputation Game of Thrones will even have because right now it seems like the bad writing post season 3 has finally caught up with it judging by the more negative reaction to some of these newer episodes than usual. Anyways i just had to vent for a bit.

Are they telling the truth? For all we know, he was exchanging these pics with consenting adults. Morally not ok since he was married, but I've been seeing a lot of people demonizing him. If this is true, the girls should just file legal action and let justice do it's thing instead of pouring gasoline all over this tyre fire. If it's proven that he's guilty, then let him deal with the consequences. I for one feel bad that he's probably going to lose his job over personal matters, and am still interested in following his channels, if he intends on continuing his work. All of this being said, at the very least he was a dirtbag for the marriage issues. Let's see how this all plays out.

EtcetEraThread My wife and I watched all the Jurassic park films back to back
Reason User warned: sexist language. Please don't refer to women as "cows".
I love all the Jurassic Park films. I suppose being objective, they're all quite bad (especially the latter films), but they call to my soul in ways I can't quite articulate. So I got my wife to watch the all with me in a marathon Jurassic funfest one weekend. She spent most of her time rolling her eyes so hard I could hear it, but she seemed to mostly enjoy herself. And no, they're not riddled with plot holes and nonsensical shite, they're talking points dammit. I couldn't list all the stupid stuff if I tried anyway. Obviously the best film of the lot. The dinosaurs feel thrilling, new, dangerous. The cast is good and it scared the shit out of me when I saw it at the cinema. Notable points; - Fabulous CGI and special effects, it still holds up 30 years later. - Geography be damned with a T-Rex paddock simultaneously at road level and yet with a gigantic drainage cliff. - The T-Rex and Raptors are genuinely scary. - Only two programmers for the entire park? Nedry and Arnold. Is Arnold even a programmer? - Toilets by the T-Rex paddock? But why! - Dr Wu as a normal scientist. Who knew what he would become! - Alan Grant knows the attacking patterns of raptors from his fossils, Muldoon doesn't even though he's had live animals to study. - "Shooooooooooot heeerrrrrr" - Spared no expense, except on programmers. - Nedry's can of embryos in the mud, I was so sure that would become something I'd see in a sequel, but not yet. - Jurassic Park would probably have been a raging success if not for Nedry who turned all the fences off. Ramps up the stupid, but it's a fun romp. Notable points; - Malcolm as lead? Geoff 'The Plank' Goldblum in full on crap acting mode. - Token black child bearing zero genetic resemblence in any way to Malcolm. Maybe she's adopted? - Sarah has an annoying face. - Sarah the wildlife expert does everything wrong when it comes to wildlife. - Two T-Rex's! Awwwww yeah. - Just how tall is the tree the high hide is in? - The raptors are less scary. - The T-Rex's are less scary despite being twice as many. - Gymnastics girl Vs raptors. - Poor random bloke in San Diego getting chomped. - Would all have worked out fine if Nick hadn't sabotaged the camp. Yes it can get more stupid. Mercenaries who aren't, rich sightseers who aren't, cheques bouncing, new Dinosaur. What a wild ride. Notable points; - What eats the blokes on the boat at the start? - Kid can get down from the tangled parachute but leading lady love interest man can't. Kid could have helped dammit. - Spinosaurus! Grrrrrr. - T-Rex relegated to almost comedy bit part, booo. Obvious scene where Spinosaurus kills the Rex. - Stupid warring parents getting back together plot because he lost 25lbs and looks good again. - Colourful raptors now. - Hilariously abrupt ending. - Low key sad sub plot point with Grant and Ellie no longer together, she's moved on Alan, she has kids of her own now and after you made so much progress in Jurassic Park too. - Satellite phones in big piles of shite. - Would all have been fine if Tea Leone hadn't attracted the Spinosaurus by shouting through a mega phone. We're a theme park now baby! Idiocy levels ramped right up, but damn we're quick to the action and it's all brilliant nonsense. Notable points; - Lady in charge of bleeding edge theme park is young and hot? I refuse to believe it! She should be a grizzled old cow with years of management experience. Expense spared apparently. - Career lady Claire doesn't do kids, but this needs to change and she must be made to feel bad about not bonding with her nephews. - Stupid parents divorcing sub plot. - Mad rides. Driving your own gyropod into the legs of a giant dinosaur, crack on kids! - The entire fall of the park is Claire's fault. They can't detect the Indominus in the cage so rather than check the tracking chip there and then, see it's still in there and avoid the coming disaster, she rushes off to do it in the car a suitable distance away from the enclosure. Bonus points for whoever decided it was sensible to go into the enclosure before confirming it was definitely empty, looking at you 'Dinosaur behavioural expert' Owen. - Assistant lady suffers protracted and unnecessary death. - They didn't want to kill the Indominus because they had $36mil invested in it, even when it becomes apparent it's munching its way through multiple billions of dollars of dinosaurs, fences, swat teams and law suits. - I can absolutely fly a helicopter, oh whoops. - T-Rex relegated to helpful saviour, shares meaningful glance with semi-pet raptor. - Nonsensical plot about military raptors. Not one iota of that makes sense, I can't even. - Colourful raptors see, fuck you plain brown raptors from Jurassic Park. - Raptors definitely not scary. Raptors becoming a touch comedic if anything. - Moasaur wins the best Dino competition. - Brief scene in the old Jurassic Park lobby. Will we get Nedry's mud can? No we won't. - Look it's Dr Wu! Only now he's one step away from cackling mad scientist. - Would all have been fine if Claire hadn't been rubbish. Here we go lads, the finale (for now), let's double down on all the idiotic nonsense from Jurassic World. Notable points; - Hey it's Malcolm, but he has a beard now. - Failed head of Jurassic World Claire now runs a charity for dinosaurs or something. - Military raptors are still a thing apparently. - Hilarious computer nerd character and feisty girl vet who wears painfully trendy clothes, how fresh. - Pet Raptor. Raptors officially not scary anymore. - Sad Brachiosaurus that goes 'Mooooo' as the smoke consumes her on the jetty. My wife got legit sad at this bit. - With the eyes of the world on the collapsing Dino island, a large team of bad lads have no issues gaining access and stealing all the dinosaurs. - That bloke sure likes teeth. - Dinosaurs for sale! Let's start the bidding, do I hear £20? Who'll give me £25? Hilariously low sale prices. - Serious Dinocrisis vibes, this is not a bad thing. - Clone child. - It's Dr Wu again, only this time he has transitioned fully to evil genius. - Dinosaurs loose in the woods. - Would all have been fine if Owen hadn't let the dinosaurs all out. I think the only take away is that people are the real problem and that raptors love to jump on bigger dinosaurs. With any luck and the character arc Wu is apparently on, people will become the actual dinosaurs for the next installment. Apocalypse human/Dino hybrids, let's go.

Saw this all over Twitter when I got on. Last week Madonna called it the “de facto made for radio hit” single of the new album in interview with Billboard and it definitely sounds like a modern Pop hit. It has that “mumble” sound where she sounds bored, drunk and mumbling/whiny voice. Don’t know what to call it. It sounds very weird for a 60+ year old woman to be making this type of mumble sounding music IMO. Not sure how it leaked but it was supposed to release on Spotify/iTunes on May 10.

As for the film itself, personally I didn't think the design of Sonic looked THAT bad, but I guess changing it is the best move at this point. Part of me thinks Paramount was already in the process of re-doing the design when they put up the trailer as Sega had apparently been complaining about the design for months, I can't help but wonder if this was their way of trying to generate more buzz for the film.

This kind of leak has originated from here in the past, and proliferated widely in a way that became quite problematic for everyone involved. We are asking y'all to help deescalate the situation and avoid having such data spread from here. We don't want to ban anyone but that will have to be the next step if things do not calm down. Thank you for your understanding.
ITT, predict for the NPD April 2019 retail period (April 7-May 4, 2019) for U.S. hardware sales.: NPD is one of the main retail tracking firms in the U.S., and also about the only one who specifically goes into detail on video games sales. This thread is to predict what the NPD hardware sales will be for the most recent month. NPD months are defined by the National Retail Federation (find calendar links ).: Bragging rights.

I've yet to play a SMT game I didn't enjoy, so not really. I also really like the art for the most recent games. I'd say it's more unique than most anime art and designs, to be honest. Also, sexualizing young anime characters is always going to be a weird issue. Some people are bothered by it, some aren't. Their age could be listed as 14, but they're a drawing and don't look like real people at all. It's like how Yoko Littner is sexualized in Gurren Lagann despite being 14, even though she has the proportions of a fully grown woman. I had no idea how young she actually was in the show until years later, always assumed she was an adult.

I am fairly certain that the X should be able to do 4K/30 FPS. It just seems like they were too lazy to include a separate option to select between 4k/30 and 1080p/60, opting for the latter. Which still has merit seeing as no other console release has offered 60 FPS at all.

Between seeing the "actually, it's about ethics in gaming journalism!!!" whole façade still allowed here, and the fact that we are still entertaining idiots who would abuse any means possible to just hurl shit at people, I'm honestly utterly disheartened by the state of affairs in communities like this one. If platform warring was always stupid, launcher warring is just grotesque. There also was a time where launchers were not a thing, people, and Steam wasn't an easy pill to swallow for many when it first came along. Just choose your poison. No need to be an utter shit nugget to others because reality doesn't perfectly align with your own personal preferences on fucking gaming. Play games. Have fun. Talk to people. Make your cases in a way that you don't alienate the entire rest of the community. Because if you are singling people out on Twitter or Valve is forced to stick a pop-up on your opinion saying "this is completely irrelevant", you can do better.

Reason User Banned (1 Day): Trolling and Misrepresenting Other Users' Arguments
GAMERS (tm) But seriously. It's laughable how uptight people get over a game being moved to another launcher... on the same damn system. It's still a PC game, so just download the other app for fricks sake. You'd think with how mad people get it was actually an exclusive on another system now like the Mac App Store instead of yellow panic-fueled ranting. There's a bunch of perfectly legitimate reasons to dislike the epic games store (Personally, I'm waiting for achievements and two step before I make an account since I like Steam's way of doing those), but nobody needs to be immature like this in the slightest. Just wait or stick with your OG steam version, god... Part of me kinda wants them to get RDR1/RDR2 as epic exclusives just to have a nuclear meltdown take place from the results of that. Wonder if the people who get this mad ever bought something from Twitch or Windows 10 like I have, as guess what, those games run just as fine in different launchers even if they don't always have the features as PC games are PC games.

Reason User Banned (5 days): trolling over a series of posts, account in junior phase
Slow down backseat mod, I'm currently discussing those reviews, don't call the cops. As I said, seeing people clinging to the mixed to good review the movie get in some websites is a sight to behold. I'm giving an opinion about the discussion I saw just one page ago. Remind me why some people feels like there is a need to be hostile about calling this movie for what it is ? A blatant cash grab and one of the dumbest idea ever ? A talking Pikachu with a big voice isn't one of the dumbest idea ever ? Just repeat it in your head, "a talking Pikachu with a big voice". I feel some got lost at some point or maybe it's Nintendo enthousiast being hurt at someone laughing at a Nintendo-related product ? There's really a defense-force for everything. It's funny and sad at the same time.

She appeared to be the type of person who could try and dish a joke but couldn't take one at all. Overly and quickly offended and just all around nasty.

And hasn't Etika gone on about this all being some massive troll? I know we have all this cop footage which is the only thing that makes me believe this, but is it at all possible it could somehow be staged? I really do find it hard to believe this guy would be taken away on numerous occasions, assault police officers, look completely unhinged in public several times and on a stream where cops were supposedly also watching, and just keep getting off Scott free. Have to call for some actual receipts here. This entire thing is fishy as fuck to me. Is his ex GF his next of kin? Why would his fucking doctor keep calling her supposedly? Isn't she like a known bullshitter? And clearly going for some kind of fame constantly talking about him and providing "updates"? Same goes for his "friends" too. I call bullshit.

Reason User Banned (1 day): Antagonizing other members
Are you always this obtuse? Disliking Epic forcing people onto their half-assed store that clearly wasn’t ready, and disliking crunch on the actual devs doing the work, are not mutually exclusive positions to take. Use some common sense here. If Epic was actually competing, games would be hitting other services. But instead of using the money to improve upon the store and its offerings, Epic is spending money on exclusivity. Crunch isn’t necessary to launch a competent product. Sweeney is just cheaping out on labor, forcing his developers into grueling work weeks for Fortnite and skipping standard features on their storefront altogether. Sweeney is not interested in an actual competition, and he’s definitely not interested in putting money towards easing the burden on his developers, by hiring more. This. Is. Not. Hard. To. See. Read the part of the staff post in nearly every Epic thread that says “don’t argue in bad faith”. So far, every one of you Epic shills are doing just that.

It’s horrible authoritarianism mixed with all the most embarrassing aspects of capitalism’s duhumanizing ‘I got mine’ mentality. You see people running over children in cars and hosting celebratory dog-eating festivals. I find myself being mortified and ashamed at their society at every turn. I’m horrified at their no-dignity behavior. There’s literally no art, literature, or contemporary culture to be proud of. I really feel that any identification with China diminishes me to an almost sub-human barbaric level.

EtcetEraThread Sports Illustrated features Muslim model in Hijab
Reason User Banned (1 Week): Condescending and sexist rhetoric
Sir/madam, desist lol. Women of 99% of the world's Muslim population not being able to choose not to wear it might be a tad exaggerated don't you think? You contradict yourself by excluding the secularised countries which account for a sizeable portion of the Muslim world. I'm from Pakistan (200 m population) and can tell you from first hand experience and can prove it too if you like that in the vast majority of places women are not forced to wear the hijab and women without hijab can be seen in pretty much all major cities. Being expected/advised is far removed from being forced to do something and I don't see how it can be seen as oppression. India has a Muslim population of roughly 180 million. It's not a Muslim country anymore but you did clearly refer to 99% of the Muslim population of the world. Hijab is optional in Indonesia, the worlds largest Muslim population (203m). As a side note, for those that think Islam was spread by the sword, no Muslim army ever went to Indonesia, the place where most Muslims are. Turkey has 80 million population. Syria, Egypt, Morocco, Dubai...and there's probably other examples. We should make sure to consult sheikh google before we generalise 99% of a quarter of the world's population. To be clear, I am not in support of when Muslim women don't wear hijab. I'm just calling you out on this false info. According to the religion they are sinful and there's no two ways about it, but they are our beloved sisters and by no means are they outside the fold of Islam.They should be told in no uncertain terms that they're doing wrong and encouraged with love and compassion to wear the hijab. At the time of the early Muslims there were women that weren't wearing hijab in public and they weren't punished or forced to wear it.

Or irrational fear of, aversion to, or discrimination against transgender people If resetera has its own definition, then that should be readily available in the terms of service (or something) Some of the bans above are opinions and have not voiced any hate whatsoever. Person a saying its ok to go 60 mph in a 55 limit area... Person b says no you cant do that.. And .... Person c says fuck person a i hate them stupid speeding fuckers. In this stupid scenario resetera bans person b and c Just doesn't seem even remotely reasonable

GamingThread Kotaku: "Ronda Rousey Being In Mortal Kombat 11 Is Bullshit"
Reason User Banned (1 Week): Transphobic Rhetoric
I'm no fan of Rhonda and there is a lot not to like about her but I don't understand how her comments about the physical advantages of trans women over their cis gendered opponents are transphobic. Is this just something that we are not allowed to discuss because it's uncomfortable? Just today there is an article: about a trans woman dominating a weightlifting competition breaking 4 world records in the process. There are competitors that feel like they don't have the ability to compete with her and are considering dropping out of competition because of this trans woman's unfair advantage (she competed in male competitions for 9 years before her transition). I strongly believe in LGBTQ rights and I am anti discrimination of anyone but it definitely looks like bulking up as biological male for a decade has given her a serious unfair advantage. Am I transphobic for thinking this way?

I honestly don’t know what a concern troll is. I’m just saying that people get all kinds of furious in these forums. I have no idea how active most people are beyond an angry thread. For example, there are guys like Christian Spicer on DLC who when he believes in something he follows through consistently and not only says something but does any number of real world actions to support a thing. I deeply respect that. Also, I wasn’t judging absolutely. I said that when I read threads like this, they anger me. 20+ pages of outrage and I’ll hazard to guess that many people here are just putting on a show and joining in. There are people on Era who totally and consistently stand up for a thing with anger when necessary or a head shake of shame and a link of attention towards the offenders... 20 pages of YEAH!

I agree that if a transgender has the same levels of testosterone as their other female athletes, then there should be no problem in them competing in the same league. With that said, it is not in accordance with proper academic principles to rely on one study alone, especially when it comes from a journal that may be biased in their approach and mythology. That is like stating, that the Institute for international Finance is a reliable source when discussing the effects of a tightening in capital regulations.

Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Transphobic rhetoric, ignoring staff post, and history of modwhining
It was a very limited study (it involved 8 people), with very limited conclusions that don't justify this:Joanna Harper herself doesn't come close to this conclusion: She effectively says that in some sports it won't have an effect, in others it will. This isn't controversial - it's quite clearly self evident that this won't track across the board. Joanna herself gives the example of how transition therapies won't make you shorter - and this might aid you if you're transitioning as a basketball player, but cause you to lose out if you're transitioning as a gymnast. Her study was very small - and unfortunately it's a bit of a chicken-and-egg situation, because you simply don't have many trans athletes whom you can study because it's so relatively hostile. This makes it very difficult to find study groups. But Harper's is a limited, small study whose conclusion is specifically about running, and more broadly that some effects are nullified, others aren't and thus the comparative advantage will vary from sport to sport. This is Harper's *own* conclusion. As such, the idea that "is ludicrous.

Reason User Banned (1 Week): Ignoring staffpost
The root of this is that we have different sporting competitions, divided on the basis of sex. Anything that introduces ambiguous (or plural) categorisation will run into these issues. I have a lot of sympathy for Caster, who is simply living her life and has done a great job of being freaking fast. Where can she run, and on what basis can that be fairly decided whilst still adhering to the concept of differentiated competition aiming to avoid gender-associated hormonal advantage? Something has to give somewhere. As a side note, I struggle to accept that hormone treatments can fully remove the lasting advantage from a previous physical state. In most kinds of training progression, you can't fully undo all progress and changes in physiology that have come about from, for example, steroid use. Even returning to an untrained state, which a professional athlete would rarely do, there are persistent changes that will confer ongoing advantage. It's why I don't like seeing people like Justin "he's clean now" Gatlin in competition- he simply wouldn't be the reigning 100m champion at 37 without the lasting benefits of his testosterone doping (assuming that he's currently running clean). Again, any equivalent situation for Caster would not be her fault, which feels important.

Reason User Banned (3 Days): Antagonizing other members and history of community whining
I think a huge part of the problem here is that the format for things like this is literally that they're speaking off the cuff, and every little thing they might do or say in these conversations is filmed and posted online (not to mention it's streamed live). There's no opportunity for maybe editing out a segment they felt they didn't speak properly on, or even going back and adding something to say "we didn't talk enough about this" etc. I'm not trying to handwave the supposed handwaving, I'm trying to illustrate the point that attacking people over this might be a little...much. Point being, even though I haven't really been a Kinda Funny fan for a while now (just became a bit bored of their content), Greg Miller is one of the good guys, and I'm surprised to see people attacking him for something he said/didn't say here when it's clear what his beliefs and values are based on so much of what else he's said in the past. I see people bringing up the fact that he let Colin say or do many of the things he did - so what, he wasn't supposed to allow his best bud to express an alternate opinion from his own? Not to mention it DID reach a boiling point and the KF guys DID prioritize their inclusive message over having Colin be a part of their company at all (and it was over a pretty meager joke, mind you). Let's not also forget that besides their political opinions, all of these people are people, and there's boatloads of evidence from fans who've interacted with them to prove it. It has to be said (and shit, maybe I'll be banned for this but I sincerely hope not) that the Era community tends to significantly over-anaylze, overgeneralize, and overreact to situations like this on pretty much a daily basis. When most of the time I can at least agree that the person in question is a piece of shit that needs to be taken to task for it (though the degree to which often astounds me), in this case? This just seems pretty ridiculous.

It speaks to the Nature of discussion of Era that the Accused responds, but people ignore it mostly and just keep on piling on, having made up their opinion from the original post or even before having read it. I also find it disturbing that so many people here have the heartfelt desire to protect and help minorities - which is an excellent impulse - but find it ok to strongly insult and curse at other forum members, in this case Greg. It’s not a good look and this sort of behavior is exactly what the right wing utilizes when they try to paint progressives as mostly crazy and eating their own. Even if you strongly feel it‘s warranted to be rude to people you have identified as Nazis proper, it would be good if you could minimize the personal attacks on everyone else, even if they may have said something you think foolish or deeply flawed.

EtcetEraThread Different types of handshakes
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Racism Over a Series of Posts; History of Severe Infractions
So I was at a conference in Mexico two years ago and something which really stuck with me is how I met so many people. The people at the conference more mostly white, but when I care across a black person, I stupidly offered a different type of handshake. Basically, instead of the normal “dead fish” handshake... I gave him the “hand wrestler” and he literally just looked at me in disgust and didn’t want to shake my hand. I was a little confused for a while, because in my home country, I’d shake my black friend’s hands like this all the time and they’d be cool with it. I guess in mexico, that particular guy didn’t like being treated differently, but I wish instead he just just felt that I was very comfortable around him and if I felt I could, I’d shake everybody’s hand like that. Anyway, I just thought i’d share the thought that maybe I try to shake your hand this way because I thought you’re cooler than the rest, not just cos you’re different. Most of all, I found it strange because I’m usually the different one cos I’m Asian and in my community, I was pretty much the only Asian when I was growing up. I’m drunk.

GamingThread The Epic Brutality Of Unchecked Capitalism (The Jimquisition)
Reason User Warned: Thread Derailment
Well yeah, "Valve is doing nothing" is easy to argue against, but like I said in my earlier post, it might be better to consider *why* people feel like Valve is doing nothing. And pretty sure that if Valve can't give absolutely any concrete plans, that that says more about problems within the company than about how good their marketing is. It's also much easier to not be bothered with Valve not being communicative when you don't have problems with them. For example, one issue I personally have with Steam is that they have zero standards for what they'll allow on the store, meaning that bigoted and sexist games can pop up on the store. I've seen them pop up in the new and trending list as well (). And as far as I know, Valve has no plans to do anything about this. Of course, it's possible that they do, but Valve doesn't communicate at all about that sorta stuff. And with them not saying anything at all, it's pretty easy to assume that Valve doesn't give a shit about minorities and will continue to allow this sort of shit aside from the times mainstream media catches on. (EDIT: Actually please just ignore this post cause like warning above says it did get kinda far from the subject this thread is about, sorry about that)

"Fuck TERFs" is vague. My post isn't that vague but let me try and crystallise it for you. If we're dividing people into gender-related groups (men, women, trans, feminist etc), biological women don't have to put themselves in the same group as trans people if they don't want to. Calling them a TERF and saying fuck them, if they don't want to, is lame. Chanting "fuck TERFs" seems like going down that road.

guess that's a Japanese thing. my ochem professor taught us the basic idea for synthesizing many drugs including LSD and meth. Illicit drugs were the subject of retrosynthesis exercises as well, I'm pretty sure these kinds of problems were standard excercises that could be found in any ochem textbook. probably especially in a textbook made for an undergrad class such as Drugs and Toxins, which I think most schools have the basic outlines of synthesis of countless illicit drugs can be found on Wikipedia, or any university library. Moreover, a motivated chemistry undergrad could work out retrosyntheses for practically any popular (or not) illicit drug, they generally aren't that complicated or uneducated traffickers wouldn't be able to cook them tldr any student advanced enough to be taking a "pharmaceutical science class" would probably have already realized that most illicit drugs are only a hop and a skip away from stuff they have been synthesizing since freshman year mtldr japan is batshit

This is a big issue in the UK at the moment due to proposed reforms of the Gender Recognition Act which proposes to allow full recognition of a transwoman as a woman merely on a declaration by the individual and without any transition steps being taken - this is not necessarily a problem provided proper safeguarding is considered at least. Many women who dare to suggest that any man who declares himself a women should not immediately be able to compete in women’s sports, use women’s facilities, women’s prisons, be included in women’s crime statistics or use rape shelters are being branded TERFs and subject to vile abuse - it is totally unacceptable. Lesbians who say they would not have sex with a transwomen who has a penis are even being branded as transphobic - its their bodies they can do what they want.

Again words matter, you can't give your own definition of GaaS and that discuss it like you want. If this is not the case please tell me and I will watch the video, if not this is useless. It's like discussing racism by giving a complete wrong definition of racism at the start I don't need a video of a nobody to discuss anything, particularly if the conversation is tabled by him in that fashion. This is a forum, we can discuss any idea. GaaS is not invented by the guy in the OP is an ongoing conversion in the community and I am free to quote every single one of you and carry on the discussion. Either you have such a law esteem of yourselves that you think the only way to discuss something is watching somebody else's opinion or you don't think you are good enough to articulate a response that goes in accord with the one of OP. If you agree with him you are supposed to convince other people or talk about this in the future, are you so incapable to do so that you will post this video as response?

Oh fuck off with this. I barely even fucking comment on anything dealing going with the Epic Store because I don't even play games on PC. But if there is one thing I've learned within the past months of watching it all go down, it's that PC gamers are the most entitled bunch of whiny little shits in the greater gaming community. The dev most likely does not see the store as anything more than a launcher where their game is hosted. Sure, they probably got some cash for it being exclusive for a while, but if you were in their position and possibly needed the money, you'd probably take that deal too.

Is vanilla P5 that bad? I also find it odd that one of the main complaints of P5 is that it's too long already but this is just inserting way more shit, no? At any rate, I've played all the Atlus RPGs I've wanted to play that are available.Well, I def believe him now but it's not like they can't decide to do a Switch port later (hell, as of today given the response to the announcements) without telephoning Jason to let him know first. Like, it wouldn't surprise me if they announce P5R for Switch when we get closer to the PS4 release. Or hell, AFTER the PS4 release.

He isn't just some random guy. Brian is a great guy who makes guides for games. I'd trust him over people like that girl from Gamespot who wants to throw her political beliefs into the mix.

EtcetEraThread passing time in line for End Game?
Reason User Banned (3 Days): Creating a troll thread
Like most of us I have tickets to see End Game the first 4 nights and i'm wondering what will you guys do while waiting in line? I don't have assigned seating at my theater so i'm planning to get there 2-3h in advance and i'm wondering if bringing my laptop to play Days Gone on ps4 remote play would be socially acceptable in this situation? Should I bring an extra controller in case people around me want to jump in? Do they usually have power outlet in line at the theater?

Reason User Banned (3 Days): Inflammatory commentary and history of trolling
Welp, I hope the games dies then so they can move away from it and onto Titanfall. At least they made it clear that I should no longer support this game, and to tell everybody I know that it's a shit ass game and not to play it.

GamingThread Tim Sweeney: “If Valve commits to a permanent 88% revenue share, we’ll stop making new exclusive deals” (Read Staff Post)
Reason User Banned (Permanent): Troll account. Numerous severe infractions whilst in junior phase.
Alright, that's fair. No one should ever have to forcibly work 100 hour weeks. That's insane and cruel, however, if they choose to do this then it's on them. I know, there are dev's who work for 80 - 100 hours per week because they fear they will be fired...but is that not their own fault? Instead of speaking up and airing their issues, they resort to begrudgingly doing the work and complaining about it online...I assure you if I was the boss and found out, they would be fired. I want a genuine discussion here, Tim is in the wrong if he created an atmosphere where you feel threatened to work 80+ hour weeks BUT it is also the employees fault for not standing up for him/herself.

Christ what? Until he does something that is super inappropriate, I’ll reserve judgement. Put your hands on someone isn’t always and should be a death sentence and be labeled a creep. I mean Jesus Christ. The man as far as we know has not broken any laws or committed any indecent act. Sick of all the attack’s on all these Democrats when any one of them is leagues better than keeping Trump in office. Stop with the bullshit.

Atlus is so weird with Persona.... There's a version of P5 for PS3 for god's sake. It's not even graphical demanding. But no, no P5 on Switch. And suddenly, bam, new spin off on Switch.
