ReasonUser Banned (duration pending): hostility, trolling over a series of posts, long history of the same behavior
Just a probalistic example off the top of my head tbh? I removed it because it was needlessly and overly specific without any justification. Worst case it actually applies to someone here and they think I was talking about them.

ReasonUser Banned (1 Week): Ignoring the staff post with regards to conspiracy theorizing
The errors in the data (that are unlikely to be corrected) favor sanders to overtake Pete, and we have video of suspicious coin toss wins for Pete.
It was pretty obviously stolen, but it won’t matter in the long run.

ReasonUser Banned (2 Weeks): Inflammatory false equivalencies and repeated history of antagonizing other members
You’re on some Fallacious Ben Shapiro ‘facts don’t care about your feelings’ kick while excluding or rather omitting/dismissing details relevant to the situation. You can absolutely state it’s OWX in a vacuum, you’re just painting a misleading picture by leaving it at that.
Or rather, being so ardent to that point.
Are you denying the observable trend of higher openers tending at having shorter legs?
GamingThreadAccording to Jason Schreier, making Anthem was Bioware idea; EA actually gives the studios autonomy and more
ReasonUser banned (5 days): Antagonizing and insulting another member over a series of posts.
Maggotmouth, you responded exactly as I thought you would. So see my other response further up the page.
And don’t play dumb with letting EA off the hook for knowing the exact kind of impact only wanting and approving long tail GAAS games has, they’re far from dumb.
Also haha at ‘conjecture you can’t back up given... sourced statements from former devs in lead positions. XD either actually respond to the points people are making or don’t bother, no one wants to read your one sided rants.
GamingThreadEurogamer: Games really need to fall out of love with Lovecraft
ReasonUser banned (3 days) for excessively hostile rhetoric
Shit the fuck up and take your low paying clickbait trash that you barely subsist on while sharing a 3 bedroom apartment with 4 other people at the age of 42 and kindly find something that you’re good at, because it certainly isn’t providing anything of value with your opinions.
The writer of this article is a complete doofus and an aspirational cancer upon creativity. Yes, Lovecraft was a massive racist and xenophobic, and yes, you can clearly see how his work reflected those elements in both direct and indirect instances.
But to say that his work had nothing of value, nothing to offer, that the very genre he has popularized (Cosmic Horror), can not, or does not ‘deserve’ to be carried forward because of it is the stupidest drivel that I’ve read in months, and I post on a message board.
Chances are that this clickbait moron doesn’t even know how a myriad of works have taken influence from lovecraft, not just homage or replication (which is probably the only thing he’s capable of recognizing). He’s probably enjoyed works in multiple mediums and creators who where influenced by Lovecraft or those who were, and he’s not even aware of it.
Here’s the thing, you can take ‘problematic’ elements from old works and use them to tell whatever story you want! Fucking shock and awe! But the presence of negative traits in a story does NOT mean that you are endorsing them; you are entirely capable of writing a story that repudiates those things within a context where the ‘world’ seemingly endorses them.

ReasonUser Warned: Personally attacking another member
Watch out you might get that deranged Midnight Son poster on your back.
For the record: Me being warned for this but him not getting a single warning for unprovoked telling me to 'shut the fuck up' is silliness. I understand the warning sure, but that doesn't mean that the other poster who instigated gets off without a warning.
ReasonUser Banned (Duration Pending): Banned for this post and others within this thread. Rationalising use of racial and homophobic slurs. Rationalising arguments made in favour of acts of paedophilia.
1. He talks specifically about doing just that and why he as a public figure considers how his platform effects others very seriously. He’s also said ‘sometimes you slip up but it’s something he’s working on’, so there’s no need to really rebut with ‘but he used X word!’ here as it has already been addressed.
2. He argued (correctly) in a debate setting in the position there of that incest was not an inherent wrong. That it was morally or ethically a right or a wrong based on situational context, not the act itself. Don’t misconstrue the arguement like the alt right limes to push.
Pedophillia: the subject came about when studies suggested that Pedophiles who had access to pedophillac pornography showed less warning signs for reoffending.
He argued that if it was shown that Pedophiles were less likely to reoffend if given access to already existing pedophillic materials that they should be given those tools in a monitored setting as it would pragmatically reduce overall new instances of abuse. Again, don’t twist the arguement like the alt right does.
