GamingThread Kotaku: The ArenaNet Catastrophe Has The Whole Game Industry Rethinking Harassment Policies
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Using language associated with the oppression of minorities to describe a victim of harassment. Repeatedly peddling accusations of a false narrative. History of severe infractions.
Hmmm, could have swore it was directed at someone and not just a harsh criticism of a product. Note the "the nicest thing I can say" part. It's a dog whistle to other TB haters basically stating "I'd be a lot harsher if I could, but proper etiquette dictates I keep things relatively civil." It's basically a "I'm not X, but..." or "He/she was no angel" statement because it's adding a caveat to something that most can agree it either isn't the appropriate time for it or it just shouldn't be there at all because adding caveats to young people dying of cancer is repugnant. She's not being slick by going down that route and assuming others will buy it as a neutral stance.

EtcetEraThread 16 year old MAGA bro gets soda thrown at him at Whataburger
Reason User Warned: Please do not advocate violence against others while using the forum - no matter who they are
Not a fan of adults assaulting underage people in any way regardless of what was said. Now if that guy found another teenager in there and slipped him a 5 to beat the guy's ass, I would have had no problem with it.

Does Happy Sugar Life count? Don't know if the main character is supposed to feel motherly for or feel attraction toward the little girl she kidnapped.

GamingThread Why women criticise sexualised character designs (READ OP)
Reason User Warned: Not the right context to laugh off a serious argument
I'll personally defend it because I find it hilarious. Ludicrous things like that are like that for me. That being said, I haven't actually played any SK games beyond a demo IIRC, but those videos make me want to. It's the kind of absurdism I find appealing. Even if the combat is bad, presentation goes a long way. That SK thread has actually got me curious too with people saying there are legit well-written characters. I'm trying to wrap my head around that claim. I would find the cognitive dissonance of that absolutely fascinating if things do indeed get as serious as they say.

EtcetEraThread "Channel Not So Awesome" - Ex-contributors of Channel Awesome detail a history of abuse (READ OP)
Reason User Banned (3 days): Ignoring mod-post, re-litigating discussion of underage sexualization.
I know you’re banned, but I certainly think an artist can be a fine person regardless of what they draw. There’s more than a few good people that can vouch for Shad as a genuinely kind person like super best friends and a lot of the non-shit part of the animation community. I also enjoyed his appearance on the Sleepycabin podcast. That being said, what he draws is still uncomfortable as well as his continued association with someone like Emily Youcis (an actual Nazi). I don’t know if he realizes how damaging that is in his edgelord bubble if nothing mattering and everything being a punchline. I won’t blame anyone for hating him because of that. It’s a legal grey area, at least in America. The fact there are legal avenues for actually buying it like Mangagamer tells me that it’s not enforced at all if it actually is illegal. That being said, Shad drew some suggestive pictures of real little girls including Keemstar’s daughter, who I think would have the legal right to sue him over it and probably win. Edit: whoops, just saw the mod post. My b
