Boy am I glad designers and engineers at Apple disagree with you. You were probably upset when they removed floppy drives. You were likely upset when optical drives went the way of the dodo. You still mad about headphone jacks, ain’t ya? I for one welcome strides in progress. Sorry for the minor inconveniences along the way, though.

GamingThread DEATH STRANDING - Spoiler Thread
Reason User warned: Hostility
Oh fuck off. I love sci-fi precisely because it’s fun to imagine the what-ifs and think through the implications tiny changes can have. Like for video games, Mass Effect’s entire universe of wild and interesting things stems from the simple premise of being able to manipulate the mass of things (or wrap them in a mass shroud that temporarily negates their mass, don’t recall the specifics). That tiny bit of technology has far reaching implications that with all sorts of fun things to consider. And elaborate, beautifully intricate worlds with fun technology and social allegories can exist in perfect, internally-consistent harmony with things like Dune or the Ian Banks’s Culture series. If you’re too dull to engage with the story on any level other than letting it wash over your eyes and ears without processing what it’s saying, then that’s on you. My take away from your blather is you like DS, and felt the need to make a personal attack in some shitty nerd rage spas out because someone bothered to think about it and criticize its failings...rather than, you know, engage with the ideas of either the work itself or the criticism. In summary, eat my whole ass and try engaging with the content next time, instead of knee jerk insulting the messenger.

GamingThread CONFIRMED: Pokémon Sword/Shield Dropped GTS; Contains Multiplayer Code From Let's Go
Reason User banned (duration pending): Hostility towards moderation. Inflammatory generalizations.
I don't buy this bullshit. People got mad that others were criticizing their favorite toy company so they decided to send unearned praise to them in the face of the shit show that is Pokemon SwSh. They then tried to take the moral high ground and proclaimed much of the criticism to be "toxic" while shouting "we forgive you, king" as loud as they could to drown out the "haters." Then, moderators of ResetEra, who allow "Capcpom is baaaaack," fuck EA, fuck Activision, fuck Ubisoft, fuck Konami, Fuck Bioware, Fuck Bethesda, and so, so much more decided it would be a Galaxy Brain move to warn people off of criticising miniscule indie developer GameFreak, because it would just be unfair to hold them to the same standard that literally every other game developer has been held to on this site. Handwaving away concerns because "the game isn't out yet" despite the whole thing being leaked and streamed is just peachy keen. Lobbing a sarcastic softball that calls out the corny protectiveness of a fanbase that is coddling a company that produces a multi-million selling entertainment franchise because people suddenly realized that being assholes online may hurt the developers' feelings in this instance and this instance only because only GameFreak has real people working on their games (unlike Ubisoft and Bioware and Bethesda and Activision and EA) is the farthest thing from what should be moddable action, especially in a forum where routine veiled accusations of shilling for companies or a lack of moral scruples due to a poster's unwillingness to comply with the boycott du jour are levied against people with no mod action in sight. There has been exactly zero mod response to their actions in this thread, while they apparently have time to heavily moderate other Pokemon threads. Are we gonna see the bullshit warnings reversed? Are we going to get any transparency at all for the power tripping warning wave for a hilariously innocuous sentiment that pales in comparison to previously tacitly endorced toxicity surrounding other game releases? I thought this place was supposed to be different from the old one, with more consistent and transparent moderation, but in practice it seems like there's a list of "prominent developers" in addition to the prominent members list that absolves you from criticism and must be sheltered through strict tone policing

The complete lack of understanding of what happened is shocking. How do you actually go and ACTUALLY believe that my issue was that people had a positive opinion? Pls show me the quote. God this is actually beyond stupid. TLDR people are weirdos for getting upset that their favorite thing is criticized. That is indeed fanboy behavior. Notice how I do not go into threads and pick people just sharing their enthusiasm for the game and talking about things they're excited about? Because fuck yeah that's what discussion is for too I support that. Nah I specifically picked a post that was like "stop being so critical we all already heard this stop bringing the mood down". I cannot believe how such an OBVIOUS difference is not crystal clear. But sure buddy I was upset at people for being positive what a good takeaway displaying that the pokemon community is full of critically thinking people actually engaging with the arguments in a logical manner *eye roll* It's actually funny how perfectly this illustrates what I'm fed up with.

You are being willfully ignorant considering every single thread that even mentions Kojima you have dozens of people calling him a talentless hack, shitting on DS without having even played it, and even making alt accounts to do so. Yeah he's upset IGN gave him a low score when their European versions all scored him highly and yeah he has a massive ego but that doesn't excuse the way people talk about him on here. Shit is toxic. People attacking his fans as well.

This is going to be difficult but I have to get my flaws out. I was once attracted to one of my counsellors at my junior high school, while I was in an inclusion program. I was overly obsessed with her, even went as far as making my Xbox 360 and Playstation Home avatars based on her. Nowadays, I forgot all about her and moved on. In addition, I was really attracted to one of my former professors at my previous college. I told her "I love you" as a friend after I finish class and as always, I stopped thinking romantically about her after I was finished with her lectures. I am also very sexually attracted to underage girls and I am a huge piece of shit for doing so. I since deleted the underage Indonesian contacts on my phone and stopped talking to some underaged Russians on VK. Only problem is the age of consent which will make avoiding contacting them extremely hard.

You prolly just summoned them. This tends to happen. Anyway, I haven't ever been behind a pres candidate like I am am behind Bernie. Been that since he first ran. I will gladly support the farthest-left option again and again until it works because I want to elect someone who wants to save humans and human rights, not just use borders and racism and corporations to advance their own aims. This immigration plan is good. One thing it could do is integrate Americans with immigrants in a healthier fashion. That's a good long-term benefit because it affects the most important issue we currently face: climate change. Racists vote Republican almost every time. If racists elect more Rebublican presidents, then nothing is done about climate change. I.E. racism directly affects us as an existential risk because of ongoing policy that ignores the very real threat of climate change. Turns out, electing people who are more humane isn't just being a carebear. It's also trying to save the world. Having a real, comprehensive policy that makes day to day life between immigrants and born citizens more normalized can only help in this capacity, and anything that reduces the ammunition racists use to affect their childrens' future racist voting decisions is great. We can't have a great policy on climate change without a great policy on social change. Republicans will always side with big business unless we force them not to, and racists will always vote Republican unless we show them that not doing so helps them as much as it does others.

They do excellent work in stopping human and drug trafficking, curbing gang crime, and will also provide aid in times of natural disasters. In addition, they deport illegal immigrants in our country, which in my opinion should not be frowned upon.

Dude that argument card is old and tiring. It happens with every new generation release. From now on, just hope whatever you saw doesn't come out on the PC, because if it does, it will look better and play faster on the PC vs. the PS5. Next year, there will be a LOT of games that will be very popular and they will be multiplats. By default, the PC will look better and play better than the next-gen consoles throughout the entire generation. Only the handful of companies that still develop for Sony only will have to be the basis for (i.e. "this game is the best looking of all games") argument until that eventually goes away..

Reason User Banned (1 week): Inflammatory point of comparison, rude behavior towards another member
Here I changed some words here and there to show how out of touch this sounds... This whole situation is a giant mess. Folks here in America and on the ground in Germany just want to preserve democracy. I am sure there are plenty of Ford Motor Company employees, even leadership that feel the same. However, when you are a multinational corporation that does business in dozens of countries that span the geopolitical divide, having a fixed ideology is borderline impossible. I mean, unless you are willing to close yourself off from markets in socially volatile nations. After last year's ceremony in which Henry Ford accepted the Grand Cross of the German Eagle, the Nazi regime's highest honor for foreigners, I doubt Ford Motor Company executives wanted to jeopardize their reputation and finances further. Separated from empathy, which you, unfortunately, are subject to when you employ thousands of folks globally, this is a lose-lose situation. If I were an executive at Ford Motor Company when all this went down, I would probably have to step down. I support the Jewish people and people who are categorized as minorities around the world who want democracy and their human rights respected, but I don't know that I could cope with being a company liability for it. I feel the cause is noble, but the pursuit could cost people their livelihoods and countless millions of dollars. It's why I generally prefer political discourse about such confrontational topics to be left out of non-government arenas, particularly those shared by a global audience. Though I do understand that as we become more globally linked through the radio and distribution of media, the clashing will only grow. I don't think companies can sustain the act of hiding behind scripted apologies like this either.

Thanks for your opinion! Now I would like to say a few things. First, I think it's awesome to fight for your rights and things which are important to you. But if you do it, than be always respectful to others. Because I highly believe that if you are not respectful to others, than you will also not earn respect. And when no one respects you, than no one will listen to what you say. There are other ways to fight for your rights and being respectful at the same time. The first guy in the video showed exactly how that works, he got interviewed, than he says "Free Hong Kong" which was absolutely fine because he got interviewed. He didn't screamed disrespectful during someone others interview or something like that. This is how you protest the right way, and then and only then when you do it with respect, than others will listen to you. But this is of course my own opinion. Be respectful and you will be heard!

EtcetEraThread Vice: I Accidentally Uncovered a Nationwide Scam on Airbnb
Reason User warned: Self promotion
I have a few properties that I rent exclusively through Airbnb and VRBO and make a good amount more vs renting it to long term renters. My rates are cheaper than hotels and guests get a much more charming, larger, nicer and flexible place (I also allow pets). They also get all the conveniences of home which is a huge selling point and something no hotel can offer. Even the ones with kitchens suck and have bar bones when it comes to anything a kitchen needs. I treat it as a business and guests have the same requests and expectations they would with a hotel. I did get scammed once and a tenant trashed the place and refused to leave. Airbnb wasn't much help and the police didn't k ow what to do so I shut the power off (I live in Phoenix and was 105+) and it didn't take long for them to leave. They cost me thousands. Unfortunately there's risks for both parties.

GamingThread Should Reviewers Beat Games To Review Them?
Reason User warned: "lazy dev" rhetoric. Please review our FAQ.
Just my opinion but your review suck ass and holds little to no value if you didn't even bother finishing whatever it is you're reviewing. It's literally a half-ass review. How would you feel if someone reviewed The Last of Us 2 and give it a score without getting to the final 1/3? I guess people wouldn't care if it's a 9/10 or 10/10, but what if it's a 6/10? Is that still okay to you? I don't know how western people treat their professions but this just came across as lazy to me, I guess that's why so many western AAA games are so buggy at launch, I guess finishing your job isn't really all that important in the west.Point taken but that's not how video games work, except multiplayer ones but they don't have an ending anyway.

GamingThread Should Reviewers Beat Games To Review Them?
Reason User Banned (3 Days): Trolling
In many respects, it is much harder to make a murder look like suicide today than, say, thirty years ago. Back then, you could choke them, hang them from the rafters, write a note with your off hand, and consider it job done. Police didn’t check for rope burn, compare handwriting, etc. If it looked good, and there were no signs of struggle, you could make a decent living out of manufacturing suicides.

Unless that was just an attempt at a really bad joke. Also you don't seem to have ever mentioned Hong Kong on Era at all until the post you just made in here and your post in the WoW thread that i quoted. And unless the search function failed me you also never posted in any of the Blitzchung threads either. Which is odd for someone who claims to care.

Reason User Banned (3 Days): Inflammatory Community Generalizations
You know what, I wasn't going to post here again, but before I leave (and yes, I will be requesting a permanent self-ban) people should know why I'm actually leaving. Anyone who knows me knows that I have absolutely no problem with long, extended arguments, but I do not tolerate ad hominems, and I could already see that this thread was headed down that path again after comments like yours. I've been through that too many times with poli-era, and just in general, interactions here have just not been very pleasant. This is more like the straw that broke the camel's back. As for your argument about Sanders. It's hogwash. He literally brought up exactly what you talked about, but you couldn't be arsed to look at the full exchange to see that, very much in the same way that I didn't realize how out of context Kamala's quote was, ironically. Yes, Sanders is flaky on race issues sometimes, but there are other times where he has the best responses on race issues, but that never gets acknowledged here. In fact, I don't think I've seen anyone here acknowledge just how far he's leading the pack on his criminal justice platform compared to everyone else in the field, but that's not surprising. Anyway, I wish you all well. I really mean that, but I hope that maybe one day this community can realize the kind of toxic, unwelcoming atmosphere it has fostered, because I am personally tired of it. Cheers. It's been fun.

You probably also think black men deserve to be shot by cops for not complying. They weren't personally responsible enough. They made the wrong choice. You probably think LGBT+ people deserve to get fired from their job for not hiding who they are. If they were personally responsible, they'd know better and lie to avoid punishment. Gotta make the right choice in the moment. And everyone who uses drugs should be in jail too, right?

So you're literally admitting bias and that you just don't like a specific fanbase. Congrats. This is the kind of stupid ass justification that should get people like you banned. "I hate them more so of course there should be a double standard". People like you making constant excuses justifying why Capcom should ignore a specific platform cuz "entitled losers" are also very frequent in Capcom threads. So why don't you take your own advice and get off the forum forever?

Prequel fans cry harder. Your favourite movies suck and no amount of revisionist history from 20 year olds is going to change that fact. Also, maximum side eye to the types of people huffing and puffing that Filoni or Feige should be running the show. Their lack of a vagina is totally not relevant, . ALSO, the Clone Wars cartoon is...alright? Basically a lipstick on a pig situation.

EtcetEraThread US carriers kill Google's RCS messaging initiative
Reason User Warned: Antagonizing another member.
Nah you got busted making up shit mate. Your fabricated article title is garbage. Look at how this is reported everywhere: And it doesn't matter if their app is only compatible with the standard instead of 100% because the carriers are not blocking RCS to begin with. You will be able to continue to keep using your Google RCS app as if nothing happened before during and after they launch their app. Yet you reported this as the death of RCS. They can monetize their own personal carrier app all they want. As long as the normal Google Play Messaging App continues supporting the full standard and functions, who the hell cares except for the imaginary people that actually use carrier apps. This is like saying Netflix is dead because Verizon launched a video app that no one will use. Stop it slime.

EtcetEraThread Harvey Weinstein Turned Up At An Event For Young Actors. A Woman Confronted Him And Was Thrown Out.
Reason User Banned (2 weeks): concern trolling
there will always be crime from minor to murder. I'm not saying that we are not living in a different era compared to earlier times, we have changed more public opinions than I could list. what I'm arguing is that the stigma society puts on criminals is counterproductive if we want actual systemic change regarding how we deal and prevent these type of crimes. if all people want to do is argue who's good and bad, then go ahead, but then do not try to claim you want actual change in these broken system because they do not, they want to adjust the system to inflict more harm on those they do not like.

EtcetEraThread Terminator: Dark Fate |OT| (Spoilers) No fate but what Jim & Tim make
Reason User warned: Please refrain from using sexist/gendered insults.
Damn it was a bad movie. Such a shitty script and dialogue. Everything underlined; twice, even thrice. Arnold's pussywhipped T-800 was horrible (actually only fun thing in the movie). Grace and Sarah constantly throwing toxic masculinity oneliners to each other: "I'll punch you up", "I'll shoot you in the face if you won't shut up", just like all the action male heroes do it. Cliché. CGI started really bad in the factory fight, but eventually ended up being ok. Didn't notice anything Tim Miller in the movie. The ghost of James Cameron reeked all over it. Linda Hamilton was the only positive thing. Also few action scenes were decent. Really shitty movie.

EtcetEraThread Tulsi Gabbard Meets With Wall Street Fat Cats, Said To Be Eyeing Third Party Run
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Inflammatory Whataboutism and Dismissing Concerns of Ethnic Cleansing Over Multiple Posts
Really? The US doesn't back brutal dictatorships? Have you heard of a country called Saudi Arabia by chance? (This isn't whataboutism, this is undermining your entire argument that supporting dictators is somehow unique. It isn't and never has been.) Modi is a democratically elected and very popular leader who, while he may be doing some controversial shit in Kashmir, is in an entirely different league than Assad who has waged a civil war against his own people. You can freely travel to and around India today as a Muslim or any other identity. Syria is level 4 do not travel. Comparing them is so hilariously off base. As an American, I can only control my own government, and even then not really. But I am a pacificst. War is the most immoral thing I can imagine and every time the government promises that a war will be justified for this reason or that, it turns out to be a pack of lies and millions of people die. Most people on the left only seem to understand this when the president is some guy on the other team. The second that changes they have amnesia. It's like 1984 and we were always at war with Eurasia.

EtcetEraThread Future Fox News Correspondant, Tulsi Gabbard, Regurgitates Trump's Impeachment Talking Points In Interview With White Nationalist, Sean Hannity
Reason User Banned (5 Days): Trolling and Admitting to Trolling
My point there was Bernie exhibited poor judgment of character. Which is a fact. I loosely characterized him as "an asset" because it would trigger someone like you to flip out and go on a tirade in defense of the great Bernie. Fact is, he was a useful idiot for the Russians four years ago as well. You can be an asset to a foreign adversary without necessarily being on the take for it. This is the distinction between being willfully complicit (Gabbard) and being a useful tool to depress progressive turnout against Clinton (Sanders)... both of which serve to the ultimate end of putting a wholly compromised puppet like Trump in a position of power and influence and keeping him there. It's not my fault if you can't understand the difference between the two. FYI, I look forward to your endorsement of Gabbard for president next year after Bernie loses his bid for the Dem nomination once again.

Damn that's a broad definition. Guess who else fits it? Hillary Clinton. Boosting that national embarrassment, whose politics specifically gave us Trump and who has a lower approval rating than him any interference to excuse it, specifically undermines the direction of the Democratic party and risks keeping Trump in office.

It's alright, critical thinking isn't a strong quality among the Kanye stans in this thread, so let me make it real simple for you. Kanye isn't a nebulous "they" that by association of some individuals that go relatively unnamed makes everyone complicit. It's fucking Kanye, an individual that's said fucked up shit about slavery and loves Trump. So yeah, it really is fucking easy to be like 'Fuck Kanye and his supporters that keep spreading his shit'. Because it's one, idiotic man doing it, and real easy to call out if you aren't suffering from brain rot.

If you can't follow the incredibly simple line of reasoning logic, that's fine, I'm not here to tell you you're dumb. I''ll say that for all the "anti-trump" democratic supporting, you're willingly giving the most prominent MAGA supporter a larger platform just so you can listen to a Kanye West album in 2019. Clearly every single ignorant comment he's made hasn't dissuaded your opinion enough of him, so there must not be a line at this point because he makes music you want to hear.

I need to talk about this: Journalists or influencers on twitter who have information they trust but decide to only openly tease it just enough to start the rumour mill but without giving any information of note are not doing a good job. Either you trust your sources and are able to dig deeper into the story or you don't and it's not worth reporting on. This "Ooooh, I know something you don't, hehe!" shit is just going to fuel unfounded speculation, leading to people blaming any singular person they want to attach to your thread. Report on it or don't report on it. But this weird flexing helps no one but your own ego.
