EtcetEraThread Trying to be more informed about Palestine/Israel
Reason User Banned (5 days): Do not invoke Nazi comparisons in this topic
Nazi's felt it was OK for them to punish other races to create their beloved ethnostate because they felt that they themselves had been punished in the past by their "scheming". Nowadays we've got Israeli politicians calling for the destruction of other races in Palestine to secure a ZIonist ethnostate because apparently Arabs want nothing more than to exterminate all Jews. It might go into complex history of why the two ethnicities have and are clashing, but there's really easy to understand reasons why so many people find the actions of Israel's current government, and even opposition, disgusting. If you can't accept that the actions in Palestine are at their most very basic, ethnic cleansing, you need to rethink your position.

This is why women don’t need (predominantly )white males defining their agency. I’d rather be a pervert than an idiot who seeks validation in controlling some sort of weird cleavage agenda. It’s the double standard born out of deeply rooted puritanical and misogynistic ideals.

GamingThread Nintendo files multimillion-dollar lawsuit against ROM website, RomUniverse
Reason User Banned (7 days): Justifying piracy, history of severe infractions
That’s sweet. I played earthbound for the first time on an emulator in 2006. I also have a physical copy that my sister purchased in 1999 that I played in 2010. I was also part of a 30+ member forum community of people who mostly played emulated games. We were all teenagers or in our early 20s, you think we had money to buy shit? So there’s roughly 20 people right there who pirated Earthbound. Here’s a hint, most people pirated Earthbound because most people weren’t going to pay $60 for Earthbound in 2003, let alone $50+ going forward. Also it’s been stupid expensive since like 2009. I’ve been following racketboy for long enough to remember their rarest SNES games list and while EB rated low on rarity, it still averaged about $100-$150 in 2009.

Reason User Banned (1 Week): Inflammatory false equivalence concerning bigotry.
This is what is wrong with the left. Instead welcoming positive change with open arms, people expect you to die living a life they deem correct and then maybe you will earn their forgiveness/whatever it is you think you offer. Fuck this attitude. It's what fuels so many people to go right in the first place where they are welcome without being forever ridiculed for some dumb ass reason. Nobody has to burn at the stake and give up all worldy possessions to earn your good graces, it's unreasonable and illogical. No better than the thing you claim to hate.

GamingThread It feels like it's getting harder to discuss thing calmly in the gaming community
Reason User banned (1 week): inflammatory community generalizations
The problem with Era specifically is that in an attempt to prove how woke they are, people often argue against points you never even brought up. They want an argument, not a discussion. More than once I’ve posted something and gotten a reply from someone arguing against shit I never even said because rather than engaging in an actual discussion, people on here just want to argue and prove how right they are and how wrong you are if you don’t share every single one of their beliefs. I always have and still do believe that I’m an extremely liberal and left leaning person but honestly this site just exhausts me and embarrasses me sometimes. It’s full of hypocrites who just want any excuse to “cancel” another human being who doesn’t live up to the impossibly perfect standards they’ve set. I’ve really grown to dislike this site over time. People here rag on NeoGaf, and while I’d never post there again, at least there simply having an opinion isn’t enough to get you banned. The moderation here is terrible, you can catch a ban for simply not being liberal enough, and as a liberal, that’s some bullshit. You’re not liberal at all if you feel the need to ban and exile everyone who shares an opinion you don’t agree with.

He never said that at all. Do you want to have an actual discussion or instead keep perpetuating strawmen since they're easier to knock down than the actual reality of the situation. PDP are on multiple occasions unequivocally apologised for his mistakes and taken full and sole responsibility. Are you just going to ignore that because it doesn't fit your narrative of him "failing to take responsibility"? What PDP is talking in his latest statement in regards to the MSM is 100% fact and a massive issue with the MSM. PDP has thousands upon thousands of hours of completely and utterly banal content. When the MSM covered him they instead focused on what? 10-20 minutes collectively of content? To be on the safe side lets say it's collective 1 hour. How much as a percentage of his work does that represent? far less than 1%. They ran with this 1% and shouted about it for the roofs tops and disseminated to countless people as if it was the majority of the content he put out. Yes PDP's actions are his own, no question about that. And if he hadn't done shitty things then the media wouldn't have had shitty things to report on. But he's fully correct in saying the media played a part in perpetuating the negative image he has. I'm not sure what this has to do with anything. PDP said something/did something shitty and faced repercussions as a result. That's a fact.
