EtcetEraThread The New York Times Editorial Board endorses *both* Amy Klobuchar and Elizabeth Warren for president
Reason User Warned: Trolling
No. I think it's just good that the NYT endorsed two women, and that one of them is Warren, which I support. The outrage here was basically preprogrammed since everyone (rightfully) expected the NYT to endorse a centrist and that Bernie wouldn't be endorsed. But instead of being "happy" that Warren was (also) endorsed everyone's smashing NYT because they avoided to choose a side. Which apparently you have to do in 2020 if you don't want to be called Nazi scumbags (sic!).

EtcetEraThread AOC: "The Democratic Party is not a left party. They're a center, or center-right party." [READ OP]
Red Text All right, let's try this again. This is a topic that merits attention, but it needs to happen without snide or hostile remarks, pre-emptive or otherwise, and without glib polls with troll options. We are rebooting this with a new, proper poll, and we lifted some of the previous bans to give this a second chance. These were the result of us moving hastily to try and stay on top of things, and we apologize to anybody who feels unfairly treated. That said, any sort of deliberate provocation going forward will be met with harsher bans.

the problem is that this forum really isn't that far left, it's mostly just obama/clinton-tier liberals with no sense of historical materialism. it's further left than most gaming communities but that speaks more about gaming communities than anything.

Reason User banned (1 month): Condescending and dismissive rhetoric over a series of posts in this thread
"I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I can't agree with your experiences and history," sounds like a lot of "centrists" who believe in civil rights but don't understand that economic justice will help poor minorities. Here's one for you: “It didn't cost the nation one penny to integrate lunch counters. It didn't cost the nation one penny to guarantee the right to vote. But now we are dealing with issues that cannot be solved without the nation spending billions of dollars and undergoing a radical redistribution of economic power.” - MLK Jr. But apparently, that's ignorant to you.

Reason User Banned (1 week): System wars, junior account
It is not a "warring", though probably some would like to make that impression if they can´t talk about it. There is a conversation from previous pages about consoles companies caring more for a genre and, regardless of some saying that can´t be true, no one proved otherwise (and I play on PC as well, but facts are facts). But thanks anyway, it seems people here tend to cry to modding when they can´t argue a valid point. Let´s be robots then.

pc gamers hurt the medium to be honest. TLOUs has helped it big time bringing in $ dollars and people to gaming. If pc gamers cared a little less about specs and didn't mention them in every game thread and just talked about the game then and only then will they start helping the medium instead of scaring people away.

EtcetEraThread Is it just me, or have postings on Era kind of slowed down?
Reason User Banned (permanent): inflammatory metacommentary
As a lurker who came over after Neogaf, I find myself checking the site less and less. - The trigger happy ban policy is absurd. I get the impression users are scared to have an opinion that doesn't fit the mods agenda. This leads to nothing more than echo chamber with no real discussion to be had. Imagine in your personal life if you shut down every conversation where you disagreed with someone. - Awful topic threads. The same posters over and over posting personal topics that are of no interest to anyone but themselves, to get a sense of validation that I assume is absent in their own lives. - Negativity and toxicity. The constant bickering is exhausting. It feels like everyone is playing morality top trumps, trying to out do each other and be faux outraged by any slightly divisive opinion. - I hate Trump as much as anyone, but the constant daily threads about him and his party on here are depressing. It would be nice to have a break for a bit. I swear posters get off on posting about his latest bullshit. We get it. He's a total prick. - Opinion threads posted as fact like a BuzzFeed clickbait headline. - Threads with people threatening to take their own lives. This is a serious topic obviously, but it seems to be the same people over and over who never take onboard any of the genuinely thoughtful and caring feedback from other posters. I know this is a complicated topic, and these people deserve and need attention and help, but I wish just they would help themselves. I feel like stepping away from Era and its negativity would probably do them some good. It's just all so tiresome. I think I'm done with the forum, checking it out of a daily reflex doesn't add anything positive to my life tbh.

EtcetEraThread A friend cut me off over my stance against circumcision
Reason User Warned: The religious custom described is only practiced by a fringe and extremist minority and not at all mainstream. Please avoid potential misinformation or generalizations in sensitive discussions.
I'm non-circumsized and did have a minor UTI when I was 6 or so because my single mother did not know to educate me on how to properly wash my Penis. I had a quick round of anti-biotics and a little chat from a Doctor, and it's been issue-free for 25 years. So I can believe that this is not a super uncommon thing to happen in the life of an uncircumsized boy. A search for more serious problems related to foreskin isn't turning up a whole lot, although circumcision is a surgery and has risks of infection itself. Especially in parts of the world where you have religious figures with improper medical training performing Brit Milah instead of surgeons simply doing the procedure in a sterile environment. I mean, for fucks sakes, a traditional Brit Milah involves a Rabbi sucking on the foreskin before performing the incision. Super, super unsanitary and frankly fucking disgusting conceptually.
