GamingThread Polygon: Nintendo Switch 10.2.0 update bans words like coronavirus and ACAB (BLM is still fair game) [up: Sony also apparently disallows ACAB]
Reason User Banned (Duration to be determined by Admins): inflammatory comparison between racism and criticism of police violence
I’m always surprised when I see the support of generalizations such as “all cops are bastards”. It’s barely a step away from saying all “insert race” are bastards or all “insert religion” are bastards. You’re barely better than those people. In the NeoGaf days I would have gotten banned for a post like this so we’ll see how this goes. I’m speaking from the position of having a family member In the police department. He’s as liberal as they come and is just as outraged as all of us regarding the recent videos and stories. He goes out every day actively trying to enact positive change. He’s not a bastard and I personally take offense to the double standard.

GamingThread Alec Holowka (Night in the Woods, TowerFall) accused of sexual assault [Update: Alec Holowka has reportedly passed away] [See staff posts/threadmarks]
Reason User Banned (1 month): dismissing assault allegations, account in junior phase
He was obviously a very troubled individual. I’ve dealt with depression off and on for most of my life. I usually just ignore these threads because they always turn so hateful and vitriolic. I’m sure he did most if not all of the things he was accused of. He was a person as well though. I think we all need to remember that anyone can say anything about anyone. That doesn’t make it fact. Often the truth lies skewed somewhere in the middle. The self righteousness and sanctimonious posts of some of the users here and elsewhere just amplify how fucked up we as a society have become. Hope all parties involved including Alec find some peace in this ending.
