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.

I'm honestly regretting purchasing X, there are no great exclusive games outside of Forza Horizon 4 and Gears 5 (can't even call the 2 goty contender), worst console in terms of exclusive and UI, luckily i'm on gamepass so it's cheap

Reason This user was banned (3 days) for wrongfully generalizing all police as bad in a subsequent post and comparing them to Nazis in this post.
No, he wasn't. It doesn't counteract the evil of his role. It's like saying there were good Nazis. There weren't. Being a cop nullifies anything you do that isn't terrible.

At what point did i believe that these "At what point did you believe in " threads were the most worthless things in existence? Coincidentally the exact same time i realised that as lock happy as the mods can sometimes be on this site they are apparently fine with there being 438 different threads on every single tedious individual detail of Death fucking Stranding instead of perhaps encouraging people to take all that discussion into a nice self contained thread rather than making a new one every 5 minutes.

GamingThread Did the transition from turn-based to action in JRPGs nerf the difficulty?
Reason User banned (2 weeks): homophobic slur, account in junior phase
No, quite the opposite. Most classic JRPGs are ridiculously easy. 99% of the battles can be won by just mashing the attack button and occasionally healing. Makes me laugh when I see all the nostalgia pining for a return to turn based combat.

Reason User Banned (2 Weeks): Inflammatory Thread Derailment and Hostility Over Multiple Posts in this Thread
Sam Smith seems like they've made this announcement without understanding the nuance of English language. It isn't a surprising thing as many native speakers never have to consciously learn the rules of the language they speak. As I said before I'd rather they'd use an invented singular pronoun than expect everyone to use an existing easily misinterpreted pronoun.

Reason User Banned (2 Weeks): Dismissive Commentary Surrounding Gender Identity Over Multiple Posts in this Thread; Prior Bans for Inflammatory Behavior
I was only sticking up for the dude you were rude to originally who asked a simple question in a discussion thread. The fact that you took it this far proves my point. Being courteous and just throwing up a quick explanation to help someone genuinely trying to join in on the conversation and learn would've gone a long way than being an ass and saying go google it. Saying that discourages people from even remotely wanting to learn or want to sympathize with people. Like I said though. I only responded to stick up for the person you were quick to dismiss who genuinely wanted an answer. People like you disappoint me and are their own worst enemy.

When I listened to the Bombcast last week - they couldn't have made the game sound more mediocre if they'd tried. I got though to meeting Marcus in Gears 4 and couldn't be bothered to continue after that. Is this any better, or is it just owners of a particular console desperate for a win?

Absolutely go for it. If you do end up with an biological male baby, try raising without the social imposition of gender specific stereotypes. Hopefully the baby will grow up and decide to be identified as a girl. Gender neutral upbringing ftw.
