"They'll never fall for it."

"They're diplomats, not scientists."

Yes, it's a real test, but they didn't have to use that specific one.
EtcetEraThreadBlack, Asian, and other oppressed groups of ERA... let's talk to each other (READ OP)
ReasonUser banned (duration tbd by admin review): Disrupting a sensitive thread about race relations over a series of posts. Previous ban for similar behaviour.
I’m just gonna say it - Black people have just been minding our business and it’s white people and some of the asian community who are responsible for the breakdown in communication. It is unfortunate that they seem more interested in capitalizing on these incidents to spread anti-black narratives/undermine black movements than having the legitimate conversations the outbreak of violence deserves. With that being said, I don’t understand why the black community should bear the responsibility to normalize relations with the asian community who we have always stood up for.
EtcetEraThreadBarack Obama and Bruce Springsteen launch podcast together on Spotify
ReasonUser Warned: Thread Derail
This doesn't surprise me. Really all Obama ever wanted was to be a celebrity, but he just wasn't actually good at anything so he had to get into to politics.
Also didn't Michelle have a podcast on spotify to? Is that still going?
Only know about Zenitsu, but man that is a fucktard of a charachter. I was screaming at the screen and is also one of the reason so many animes are unwatchable to me (creepy pervs etc etc), but the show is otherwise really good.
cool but can we please stop pushing back on clearing student debt or health care or or raising minimum wage stimulus checks or stopping deportations or any of this other shit joe biden completely dropped the ball on a mere month in
the democrats are so performative it's kind of embarrassing. not saying this isnt important but its small and only impacts on a federal level. when it has to come to bigger change, its gotta be more than these inclusive gestures that mean nothing for anyone who doesn't plan to work for the government.
In case you wonder who supplied that assessment. Her take on Snyder's Watchmen is also something else. Feel free to look it up. Must be nice living in a glasshouse. Some Snyder fans are bad. Sure. I don´t remember them running the operation or being in Snyder´s good graces though. We are destroying what it means to be a fan these days? Lol. A lot of you know what Snyder had to say about that (to WB in early 2020). What a quote by Sean. BoP fans were further asking for the Cathy Yan Cut the last time I checked (there is an "official" #) and Yan even chimed on the situation recently. Not with a no. More of a maybe. David Ayer turned into a 2nd Snyder of course. More on that front soon it seems.
So her take is bullshits all around. RIP her inbox. At least she will get to call us toxic again when she is called out. Well played?
Edit: As if I will write her. But sure. Never check sources. Look at the 2015 date btw. She was at it there was a fan movement for anything. Even BvS still had to come out. She helped to create her own narrative. Almost impressive! Well, she got clicks and made it into a key Snyder article as the "other side".
There is something very depraved about bringing out Snyder's dead daughter to attack critics of Snyder's work.
One side is focusing on Snyder as director and his filmography. The other ignores the topic at hand and either attacks the critics or relies on the daughter.
Shameful. Cut it out. Stick to the damn topic at hand. If you have a problem with another user, mention it to the mods or something, stop derailing threads with your whining.
Guys, the origin for the story in the OP is literally a 92 post thread on the ResetERA Gaming forum. There's dozens of people in there talking about how Dark Souls 2 is actually the best Soulsborne game. Here's the thread: Here's another:
Everyone needs to remember that ResetERA isn't a monolith and that there's a contingent of people on ERA who have a lot of praise for DS1/BB who need public perception to stay up to validate their opinion, so it's in their best interest to say this thread never existed even though it clearly does. It's not fake news, that it's fake is the lie.

If it can't be done this way, we basically gotta hope they nuke the fillibuster.
Doing that will revolve around Manchin and Sinema.
Manchin will do his dance, and I wanna say, probably fall in line, but I'm less sure about Sinema, who might actually be as stupid as she appears.
Really cannot emphasis the amount of energy Sinema gives off.

ReasonUser Threadbanned (1 week): Attempting to thread derail
Yep! Everytime someone goes "both sides are bad", is good to remind them that, well, there is concrete proof, well documented toxic fandom that trough harrasment, obtained what they wanted. And that saying that Snyder is a bad director is not equivalent at all with what his fans do, and that as far as I know, has not denounced.
Saying "I'm going to dance because Snyder haters are going to suffer" is not healthy, dude.
EtcetEraThreadPrankster killed after prank goes wrong
ReasonUser Banned (1 Week): Victim Blaming
I do. He didn't have to shoot. Pull out the gun, tell knife guy to stop or I'll shoot or say "make my day", or whatever it is cool gun guys say these days. if he keeps coming, then shoot. It's what we expect from the cops and we should expect it from civilians too.
"But it's fight or flight, his adrenaline was going and he went on instinct". If he can't calmly use his gun he shouldn't have one.
People here are saying "now he's going to feel guilty the rest of his life for shooting that guy". Well, that's what he did, so he should feel guilty.
To be clear, I think pranks are dumb and I want youtube pranks to go away, but people walking around with guns is dumb too. They can both be dumb.

ReasonUser Banned (2 Weeks): Dismissing Concerns of Xenophobia
I was hoping the blame on pangolins would curb the demand for pangolin meat and scales in east Asia and end that particular extinction threat.Scientists also worry about humans encroaching more and more on the habitats of other species and forcing them to live near humans, it's not just eating animals that's the problem but also expanding agricultural land and cities. The closer humans live to other animals the easier the transmission and all of that is pushing them closer together with more and more species.But remember not to complain about wet markets because technically that term means any open air market in Asia despite only hitting mainstream usage here for markets that sell life animals in terrible conditions so you'd be asking for a ban on selling vegetables!
Fucking hell, that talking point makes me angry. It's absolutely clear that when regular people talk about banning "wet markets" they mean the type being shown in the media where all kinds of random animals are caged in small spaces or sold as meat, not shutting down a farm produce stand.

personally, i don't think you should call yourself delusional and stupid just because i proved you wrong. it's not good to talk bad about yourself, like i'm not trying to be all "have you tried yoga and the power of positive thinking??", but speaking about yourself more positively can help you feel better about yourself.

ReasonUser Banned (1 Week): Advocating Theft
Stealing from large corporations is great and should be encouraged. Don't let anything you do on the job start to hit you as a moral or personal issue. They train you to perform as they want, as a representative of the organization. If the policy you follow is to return items without a receipt you're not being gullible for doing so, you're just acting on the instructions that you were given. Ultimately, you are not your job.
