EtcetEraThread I am kind of sad with my boyfriend because he thinks dogs shouldnt live inside the house
Reason User Banned (3 Days): Inflammatory Generalization
I'm sorry, every single dog owner I've come across that has had this 'no dogs on the furniture' rule are the same that don't waste a thought hitting or beating their animal. Every single one. They don't treat them like living things even if they have their 'own' beds. It's a disgusting attitude and just the tip of the iceberg that often filters through to other behaviors. If you're not willing to grant an animal the rights to your house, you don't deserve one.

GamingThread Rumor: The PS5 final console design has not been shown because Sony is trying to solve heating issues with the console
Reason User Banned (1 Day): Trolling Over Multiple Posts
Nah, it’s really not. When media types get to say “their hearing” x,y,z without proof I get to say I heard it. I also remember Colin moriarty saying it on sacred symbols and I remember all of it being brought up time and time again when the “ps5 has more tflops than xbox2” crowd were crowing in the speculation threads. Again I’m not looking to crucify anyone here. People only comment on the information they are given and intuit what murky facts they get. Maybe we shouldn’t be spreading FUD in the first place? But again that’s probably a longer talk on internet media and the need to be first over factual when generating revenue

EtcetEraThread Many people who die of Covid would have died anyway within a short period (Imperial College London)
Reason User Banned (3 Days): Inflammatory Thread Creation
Interesting article from a trusted source, these guys were responsible for getting the UK to change how they reacted. Basically in a rough estimate they feel two thirds would of died soon anyway. Imperial College London modelling, used to inform government, has suggested 500,000 could have died by August in the UK if the virus was left to rip through the population. It also warned the government's previous strategy to slow the spread by asking those with symptoms to self-isolate and shield the most vulnerable could have led to 250,000 deaths. Now, it is hoped the lockdown will limit deaths to 20,000. But that does not mean 480,000 lives are being saved - many will die whether or not they get the virus. Every year, about 600,000 people in the UK die. And the frail and elderly are most at risk, just as they are if they have coronavirus. Nearly 10% of people aged over 80 will die in the next year, Prof Sir David Spiegelhalter, at the University of Cambridge, points out, and the risk of them dying if infected with coronavirus is almost exactly the same. That does not mean there will be no extra deaths - but, Sir David says, there will be "a substantial overlap". "Many people who die of Covid [the disease caused by coronavirus] would have died anyway within a short period," he says. Knowing exactly how many is impossible to tell at this stage. Prof Neil Ferguson, the lead modeller at Imperial College London, has suggested it could be up to two-thirds. But while deaths without the virus would be spread over the course of a year, those with the virus could come quickly and overwhelm the health service. The death figures being reported daily are hospital cases where a person dies with the coronavirus infection in their body - because it is a notifiable disease cases have to be reported.

EtcetEraThread The Intercept: Time’s Up Said It Could Not Fund a #MeToo Allegation Against Joe Biden, Citing Its Nonprofit Status and His Presidential Run
Reason User banned (1 week): Hostility, harassment and inflammatory accusations over a series of posts and across multiple threads.
I'm getting sick and fucking tired of you running interference for Biden across every thread that involves Tara Reade's accusation of rape, calling for proof and more evidence despite the multiple allegations of inappropriate touching and harassment other women have also reported. Many of which is brazenly done on camera, in front of the rest of the world (some linked above). You've been downplaying her accusation since it showed up and no amount of "other people are saying/according to them" is going to change that. I see you. Turns out all of that is complete and utter bullshit and that you don't actually care about victims of abuse. You care more about burying a story to protect our probable nominee because you value that more than giving accusers a voice.

EtcetEraThread Can the world return to relative normality before a COVID-19 vaccine is created?
Reason User Banned (2 Weeks): Xenophobic Rhetoric
As long as China keeps its wet market trade, another virus pandemic is always in the future. Lots of exotic animals kept in horrid conditions, sick and defecating on the animals in cages below, being chopped up into meat and remedies for the whackos that think eating such meat will make them stallions in bed. THAT shit's gotta stop. Hopefully the whole world, after suffering from this virus together, can muster up a backbone strong enough to sanction China. When it was discovered that SARS originated by a special kind of wild cat they sold at one of their wet markets, China outlawed the sale of that cat... then when SARS cases went down, basically said, "Okay people, we can sell that wild cat meat again!!" The United Nations and other global groups should also adhere to a new law: "People, stop eating weird, sick animals!"

It’s unreal that people keep supporting the current EU. I’ve post a screen which said that between 2011 and 2018 the EU commission sent 63 recommendations to reduce public spending in healthcare and 45 recommendations to reduce support for people with disabilities only to enforce fiscal consolidation. This union has been a COMPLETE DISASTER from every point of view. Even social wise look at what was happening in France before Covid. We need to go back pre maastricht as soon as possible. If Italy will be forced to use the ESM ( austerity for years ) i’ m gonna leave for good.

EtcetEraThread The world is not like Era...
Reason User Banned (Permanent): Dismissive and insensitive commentary in relation to racism. Previously banned for tone policing and dismissing concerns.
It's hilarious to me that so many people hate voice chat in online games. According to ERA, everyone online is a racist, homophobic, sexist bigot. Yeah, there ARE assholes online, but the vast majority of people are well adjusted folks. Hearing some dumb 13 year old white kid say "nigger" doesn't offend me. Id rather not hear it, but I'm not gonna lose sleep over it. I'll just mute his dumbass and keep on moving. Far more bigger things to be angry about honestly. I don't make excuses for shitty people. I just expect it. Not to sound mean, but some folks need a thicker skin. We shouldn't tolerate hatred. We also need to do our part to shape the world into what we want it to be. We can't be idle and complacent, just hoping it happens. But it sure as hell won't happen over night either.

Reason User Banned (1 month): hostility, conspiracy theories, platform warring, history of similar behaviour
I honestly think it’s time now to ban Windows Central, and folks like Tom Warren, Brad Sams and Ryan McCaffrey. Maybe unban them once we know everything or at least can be trusted to not transform into console warriors at any sign of PS5 being a lot more capable than they anticipated. They aren’t just out there spreading FUD, they are all to spread FUD and discredit alternate engineering solutions that perform as desired by developers. They are thirsty for these narratives to take hold, despite all other professionals reporting the opposite. We’re past the point of negligence and their behaviour is now what amounts to unabashedly parading around platform warring misinformation as news.

Ps4 and Xbox One generation must have been very rough for them. On one hand they must be very happy that Xsx has more TFlops than PS5, on another hand, they extremely butthurt that differentce between the two isn't very big and it drives them batshit crazy; therefore, they act like this. I'm just happy that both systems are very capable and represent bigger generational leap than we had last time.
