EtcetEraThreadBoys Pin Down Black Classmate, Cut Her Dreadlocks at Virginia School [UPDATE: Assault faked. See threadmarks]
ReasonUser Banned (permanent): Misrepresenting and mischaracterizing the concerns of others; numerous prior bans for inflammatory behavior including rationalizing violence against peaceful protesters
Just having a normal one on super progressive ResetEra, advancing the cause by calling for violence on... *checks*... innocent children, based on unproven accusations.
Handing out bans to people spotting holes in Jussie Smollet's story was hilarious, but this might just be a new low.
I wonder if people will take this opportunity for some urgently needed self-reflectiHAHAhaha, nah, I can't finish that sentence with a straight face.

ReasonUser Banned (Duration Pending): Rationalising violence against peaceful protestors, history of advocating violence, numerous accumulated infractions
Honestly, not seeing what the fuss is about.
He blocked her, grabbed her and frog-marched her out.
Seems to be about what you'd expect if you interrupt an event with protest? I'd expect a security guard to be doing it rather than an MP, but other than that... *shrug*

ReasonUser Banned (Duration Pending): Dehumanizing, hate speech
Yeeeaaahh... maybe let's not normalize eating oneself into a bundle of crippling health issues, a grotesque mockery of the human form and an early grave.
I say this as someone who has, since about age 9, fluctuated between borderline overweight and outright fat. (Although never bad, thank fucking god.) It's not a good thing to be. It fucking sucks on multiple levels. Don't fucking glorify it.
Yes, media images frequently promote unhealthy and unrealistic expectations of beauty and slender/ripped body shapes. But this isn't the answer. This is the definition of over-correction.
GamingThreadDevil May Cry 5 |OT| It's been 11 years since we last met. Where does the time go?
ReasonUser Banned (1 day): Derailing, antagonizing members over a series of posts.
Oh. I see. A backseat moderator. How droll.
If you feel I have broken a rule then report me and let the real mods sort it out.Indeed. I seem to have inadvertently stirred some decidedly low-grade shit.
So that's why I said I think they're mostly a danger to themselves. Which is the statement that the person I was responding to was taking issue with.
Wow. You are amazing at dodging questions. I feel like I'm talking to Kellyanne Conway here.
Do you think incels are mentally ill or mentally healthy? Does the behavior of incels strike you as the behaviour of mentally healthy individuals?
GamingThread(IGN)How Campo Santo's move to Valve does, and doesn’t, affect In The Valley of Gods
ReasonUser Warned: Derailing the thread
Lazy devs? Nah, that's really not the angle I'm going for. If I could collect a healthy paycheck playing wheely-chair jousting in the hallways of my uniquely managed office then I'd totally do that too.
Anyway, see, what you did there was fill out your list with a bunch of shit that amounts to basic maintenance to make it look longer.
I mean, "game engine updates"? "Controller support"? "Redesigning and improving the store"? "GaaS"? Hahaha, are you for real with this shit?
It's like saying that people should be impressed with, say, EA if their list of recent accomplishments was "updated the Origin store, Frostbite still works and you can still buy microtransactions".
Like I said before, maybe Valve's VR efforts will bear fruit at some point. I personally doubt it, but I'm no prophet. Either way, until it does it doesn't mean squat.
