GamingThreadEuroCosplay ban League of Legends Cosplayer for alleged "blackface"
ReasonUser Banned (2 Weeks): Excusing Blackface and Antagonizing Other Users Over Multiple Posts
I know you asked this question in attempts to point out how ignorant that post sounded - but I would honestly answer your question (in this specific context) with "yes". The whole point of cosplay is to make a costume that looks as accurate to the character you're trying to portray as possible (unless you're one of these people "sex-ing" a character up). What's so wrong with someone trying to make a 1:1 costume - especially when that's the purpose of it? Clearly she's not doing it for the purposes of mockery, it's straight up - just a costume.

ReasonUser Banned (3 Days): Antagonizing other members and history of community whining
I think a huge part of the problem here is that the format for things like this is literally that they're speaking off the cuff, and every little thing they might do or say in these conversations is filmed and posted online (not to mention it's streamed live). There's no opportunity for maybe editing out a segment they felt they didn't speak properly on, or even going back and adding something to say "we didn't talk enough about this" etc.
I'm not trying to handwave the supposed handwaving, I'm trying to illustrate the point that attacking people over this might be a little...much.
Point being, even though I haven't really been a Kinda Funny fan for a while now (just became a bit bored of their content), Greg Miller is one of the good guys, and I'm surprised to see people attacking him for something he said/didn't say here when it's clear what his beliefs and values are based on so much of what else he's said in the past. I see people bringing up the fact that he let Colin say or do many of the things he did - so what, he wasn't supposed to allow his best bud to express an alternate opinion from his own? Not to mention it DID reach a boiling point and the KF guys DID prioritize their inclusive message over having Colin be a part of their company at all (and it was over a pretty meager joke, mind you). Let's not also forget that besides their political opinions, all of these people are people, and there's boatloads of evidence from fans who've interacted with them to prove it.
It has to be said (and shit, maybe I'll be banned for this but I sincerely hope not) that the Era community tends to significantly over-anaylze, overgeneralize, and overreact to situations like this on pretty much a daily basis. When most of the time I can at least agree that the person in question is a piece of shit that needs to be taken to task for it (though the degree to which often astounds me), in this case? This just seems pretty ridiculous.

Lol okay, I'm '91.
I definitely have some, but more for the N64 (even if I can admit it probably overall had a lesser output than the PS1). Like I've said to others here, people can argue quality of games all day, but it's undeniable that a wider range of people (at least where I'm from) are more nostalgic for the N64.
I probably still wouldn't call the N64 "classic" though, at least not yet, or maybe ever. But like I said to someone else, Nintendo will use that branding too because it IS their branding for these products. I think it's weird that Playstation used the same word as Nintendo and used that word at all, but I'm realizing after being refuted here that I'm probably just wrong.

ReasonUser Warned: Inflammatory generalisation.
Wow sounds really hard.
They still play video games and dick around on a PC for a living, I don't think anyone should be arguing that it's a difficult job/life style. Sure it might be time consuming and you might get shit pay, but hey, that's their prerogative, not mine. You can have an actual difficult job and still play video games lol.
