GamingThread What I actually said on Kotaku Splitscreen about the PlayStation 5's specs
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Trolling, platform warring, hostility; multiple prior bans for platform warring
Again, the hype that Jason is pushing should easily be supported by the titles Sony reveals. In less than a year all of this chatter about the ‘most innovative console in 20 years’ will have the software to show the true potential, or not. I just hope Jason isn’t as defensive in a year from now if the software doesn’t blow minds like he’s insinuating. For now, watching him go all in for Sony is amusing.

GamingThread Next-gen PS5 and next Xbox speculation launch thread |OT10| - We aim to transition those from OT9 at a pace never seen before.
Reason User Banned (1 Month): Platform Warring, Long History of Platform Warring Infractions
Because that term is used loosely by fans and so we bookend that title. See “insiders”. Again, data is just numbers and doesn’t have biases imbedded. Your “insiders” are the exact opposite and that’s why so many reach for them because people are looking for hope. This idea that Xbox is more powerful than PS5 terrifies fanboys.

EtcetEraThread Senate Judiciary Committee hearing - Ford & Kavanaugh testimony - 9/27 at 10am ET
Reason User Banned (3 Days): Trolling.
Why don’t you? If you’re so emotional that you can’t stand someone expressing an opinion not in your own select echo chamber, then maybe you need to take a time out from all of this.

GamingThread Polygon: Tyler "Ninja" Blevins explains why he doesn't stream with women
Reason User banned (1 week): downplaying sexism, account still in junior phase
Twitch isn’t a workplace; it’s a lucrative hobby. I’m sure we’ll disagree on that but fine. It’s no different than avoiding a one-on-one dinner with a colleague of the opposite sex due to the image it may/may not project Ninja isn’t suggesting women cannot play games, or can’t play and stream on Twitch, or even make money similar to male streamers. He’s simply avoiding a situation that may negatively affect his family. It’s as much respect for his own family as it is respect to avoid rampant online rumor mill. Why is everyone pretending the internet is harmonious and pleasant to it’s users? We’ve seen online rumors run wild time and time again and cause sometimes significant damage to those affected. It’s a logical and rational response by Ninja.
