EtcetEraThread Prankster killed after prank goes wrong
Reason User 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.

EtcetEraThread ResetEra is hostile to anyone who isn't center-right and has been driving many great users away because of this
Reason User banned (permanent): Inflammatory attempt to rile up community; ignoring staff guidelines.
A specter is haunting ResetEra -- the specter of leftism. All the powers of ResetEra have entered into a holy alliance to exorcise this specter. As anyone who reads ResetEra knows, this is a fairly center-right liberal leaning forum. Political threads frequently get dominated by these members, many of whom are given protected status by mods, and dissenters are attacked relentlessly. In spite of this, the forum has had a great selection of leftists in the past who were willingly to wade into these threads and argue that a better world is possible if only we would fight for it. Over the past 3 years, however, many of these people have been driven off the site, many of them LGBTQ, disabled and POC, either by bannings (almost always disproportionate to liberals in the same discussions received) or by simply getting fed up by constantly being talked down to and demeaned by the bougie, largely white, PoliEra crowd. So many great comrades are gone from this site while the people who mocked and bullied them remain here, protected by mods whose attitude towards policing political threads seems best summed up as "the beatings will continue morale improves." This situation has been rapidly deteriorating recently with any thread concerning Biden filled with liberals attacking any justified criticism of him, and even threads where no criticism exists filled with subtweeting of leftists for not posting in every thread about Biden. However, all of that pales in comparison to the shitshow that was the . It began with Oheao responding to Biden's plan to involve foreign policy and punish countries which were unfriendly towards LGBTQ people by wondering if this would apply to Saudia Arabia. He received dozens of angry replies from liberals and was banned for "thread derailment" despite being a direct response to a line in the OP. Several other leftists were banned over the course of the thread, most alarmingly, psychoward, who is bi, was banned for defending his views, while received only a warning for claiming that bi men were not LGBTQ enough. To add insult to injury, in the claimed " Do not throw LGBTQs or other minorities under the bus, especially that of fellow members." while the staff had just banned an LGBTQ member and protected those who threw him under the bus. And you people wonder why so many great members who aren't banned have abandoned this website. by to discuss the insulting way in which the left are constantly whitewashed despite their diversity was immediately locked with no room for discussion. Enough is enough. I'm sure you'll ban me for this. It doesn't matter. For I'm just a man. And there will always be another KuwabaraTheMan. Another Oheao. Another Azuran. Another Desparadina. Another Psychoward. Because individually we are but people, but collectively we are a movement. And our movement can't be banned.

Reason User Banned (2 Weeks): Dismissive Commentary Around Identity and Minority Issues
I don't like any label. I don't like being labelled an atheist, even though the concept of gods is purely ridiculous. I don't adhere to political parties or social norms. I have a name and I'm an individual. Labels may signify a part of who we are, but they are not the makeup of our character or what makes us individuals. Belonging to groups separates us from the species that we are. Labels minimize our character into parts and tags. It separates us.

EtcetEraThread Black, Asian, and other oppressed groups of ERA... let's talk to each other (READ OP)
Reason User 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.

EtcetEraThread NYT: American identity politics are a threat to France, French leaders say
Reason User banned (duration to be determined by admin review): defending blackface, account in junior phase
Again, literally first thing acknowledged in my post. It wasn't on black people though, which is my whole point. We have our own messed up history and based on that, things that are taboo here are okay in the US (e.g. Jewish jokes like Family Guy pulls frequently are completely unacceptable), things that are taboo in the US are okay here. (e.g. "blackface", as we have no history of systematically oppressing black folks and it doesn't have the same context linked to minstrel shows). What I'm trying to say is it reeks of cultural imperialism to try and apply the American view on every society. We all have our own history and our societies are different as a result.

Reason User Banned (1 Week): Insensitive Commentary, Thread Derail
Ya'll got phones and laptops, ya'll got options to make income besides waiting for limited time handouts. And while that seems harsh, it's one reality of the situation. These are first time choices, probably derived from fear and being the first time many experienced loss of work where the greater field might be impacted longterm, but choices nonetheless. I know. I went from sitting on my ass bitching to hustling tom collins and telling pants shitting anecdotes to drunkards. Just gotta be willing to get creative, put in the work and commit to change. Or sit and whine about how life isn't fair. That might work for some.

EtcetEraThread A new look at Jared Leto "JOKER" from Vanity Fair
Reason User banned (permanent): advocating targeted harassment
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.
