EtcetEraThread The Lincoln Project Brings Back "Honey Badger" Guy for Parody Ad "Covey Spreader"
Red Text The fact that there is a segment of the GOP that is willing to go against the bulk of the party is a newsworthy, and quite unusual, thing. However, we don't need threads for the ads themselves.

Red Text It’s natural and understandable that posters will want to vent at this news. However, the news itself is stressful enough without having members exposed to pages full of doomposting and depressing material. We will be threadbanning anybody we feel is taking things so far that it might harm your fellow posters.

EtcetEraThread We don’t tolerate racism, homophobia, etc here but attacking religion is OK, why?
Red Text Where criticism of religion and faith crosses into xenophobia and racism, then it’s something we do address. However, comparisons of personal faith to the level of prejudice faced by minorities, ignoring that some religions are the ones leading that bigotry and have a long history of prejudice and harm inflicted over hundreds of years, is not an OP we think will lead to a productive discussion.

GamingThread Xbox Series gonna win the next generation - And I'll tell you why
Red Text This is a console warring thread to a tee. We're not about that here. If you would like to express your satisfaction with Microsoft's handling of Latin American marketing, there are plenty of preexisting threads to discuss that. Framing an entire thread around "winning" and "losing" in a sport-like overtone simply does not bode well for civil discourse.

EtcetEraThread Let's (not) talk about Rowling. (A nonbinary trans person's take)
Red Text After discussing this the staff is in agreement that not every single horrible thing that Rowling does needs to get its own thread, for the reasons that posters have expressed here. Many of these threads add nothing new while also upsetting members. We are not putting a total blanket ban on Rowling, as people should be educated about her bigotry and news should be discussed. However "news-less" threads without significant developments and/or meaningful articles attached will be closed to reduce her imprint here.

GamingThread Hypersexualised Women in Ads in Cyberpunk 2077
Red Text This is a thread about how in-game ads in Cyberpunk 2077 handle the sexualization of women. You do not have to agree with the premise, but the topic deserves a discussion, and if you attempt to shut that discussion down you will be banned. Mocking or attacking the OP for making the thread will result in long bans. We’ve permed a few trolls already. Let’s also be clear: From this point onwards, any empty drive-by posts attempting to use the setting as an excuse to dismiss the concerns raised in this thread will also earn a ban. You can have a discussion about cyberpunk settings and cyberpunk tropes but you must engage in good faith and contribute more than a couple dismissive lines.

EtcetEraThread China celebrates Coronavirus success through lockdowns and travel restrictions
Red Text The title and framing of this article was needlessly inflammatory as it makes it sound like China is celebrating Europe's failures, which does not appear to be the case at all. The thread title has been changed accordingly. While it is fine to criticize the government of any nation, we also want to remind posters to be careful not to conflate the government with its people and that China should not be scapegoated for the failures of other nations to handle the virus. The article got this discussion off to a bad start but we are reviewing reports.
