AnnouncementsThread Year End Policy Updates and Community Affairs
Reason User banned (2 months): mod whining, doubling down on previous infraction
Hey everyone. I don't want to derail the thread but since it's the only place I can speak about it, I want to post about my ban here. Well, not my ban, but its consequences. I was banned for two weeks in the thread about gender and ethnic diversity in games. My opinion was that we should not try to "force" diversity on creators, but especially I wanted to focus on the fact that it is - for better or worse - the fight should be given on the creator's turf. This means finding a way to give voice to creators that represent those people. This will ultimately be more effective than anything. Celeste was a perfect example for me, because it was a creation of transgender people, featuring a beautiful transgender character, and narrating a story about actual trans issues. I got banned after I engaged with a couple of members who seemed to be overly aggressive towards me. I was attacked for my opinion, while I never even said I was against them - on the contrary. I can understand that minorities need to be protected, but this didn't seem to me like protection, rather than imposition. You either agree with them, or you are imposed to shut up about it. A member quoted my post some time before or after I got banned. This was his/her post: . I wish I could engage with this person because some of the things he/she said I would like to extend on, discuss about and clarify. Heck, I can mostly understand, agree and relate to what is being said, and I would glad to contribute in productive dialogue. This will never happen, and in fact, it will never happen in another topic about anything that might be deemed sensitive to this forum. And whenever I realise a person who is considered a minority takes a stance, I'm out - I don't want to be part of it, read or converse about it. I might be nothing and my voice might mean nothing - in this forum or elsewhere - but there will be people that have something to say, and might be silenced or choose not to speak because of this climate. Dialogue should always be the desired outcome in a public forum, otherwise it is not a conversation, but an echo. It doesn't matter if it comes from a minority or a majority, it is still an echo. This makes for a poorer forum, as simple as that. Thanks and apologies if I offended anyone or derailed the thread.

Reason User Banned (1 Month): Inflammatory commentary
I have been feeling bad for the people in the UK, but it's wasted concern. It's a self-inflicted wound they got three years ago and then just keep digging in so hard, it's ridiculous. Honestly, at this point, the Brits probably deserve everything bad that will be happening to the majority of them, and it's hilarious how rich their new PM is gonna get with all the shady deals he will be setting up with the vultures heading in to feast (US, Russia, and China). Godspeed, Scotland, get out whenever you can.

Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Supporting bigotry
I'm a Conservative voter but I try and read a wide variety of sources for news to avoid this problem. I post and read here, on 4chan, The Telegraph, The Guardian, FT, The Times, and The Independent. I'm sure I'm in the minority on this site and that's fine by me, but engaging and reading a wide range of opinions, often times going out of my "comfort zone" has certainly helped my world view and opened my eyes to issues I may have glossed over before.

Red Text There can be a discussion on whether Cenk Uygur is a good candidate for Congress or not. However, many of the misogynistic comments made by Uygur were in the last few years, and they have been condemned by LGBTQ+ groups and women's groups in the area. As such, please keep this in mind and do not excuse the comments or dismiss concerns and objections to Uygur as bad faith attacks.

EtcetEraThread Why do people lie about their height so much?
Reason S2 User Banned (Duration Pending): Ableism; Prior Infraction for Ableist Language.
lmao at all the 6'3 people being like: "being tall is a curse". Y'all haven't experienced shit. I'm 6'9 and outside of a youth spent dominating at basketball it hasn't really paid off. I literally can't sit in 90% of cars without having my knees like besides the steering wheel looking like I'm driving a clown car. Can't sit straight in trains, airplanes, trams, or any other vehicle. I look ridiculous holding 90% of regular people sized shit, can't play stratocasters in public because the shits look like ukekeleles so I'm always using some huge hollowbody thing that looks like it's normal size for me. And I haven't even talked about buying shoes or clothes but I need to buy 90% of my shit at a specialist store at a significant markup so I'm not constantly running around in something that looks like an exposed belly button tanktop or like my basement has flooded. You haven't experienced living in a world where everything was designed for the midgets that surround you. Fucking chairs with toothpick legs and seating heights below 50 cm, hospital scanners that literally can't fit your legs, being at or close to the weight limit for most things despite not being overweight, struggling with skateboarding because of a high center of gravity and tiny ass skateboards, every single cooking surface being at or below crotch height so it's easier to fuck my food than cook it. Ergonomic chairs that literally don't have the adjustment range required for you to be able to sit ergonomically, Having to bend down to pass through doors etc... Trust me when I say y'all don't know this pain.

Reason User banned (1 week): insensitive and dismissive commentary
Bush has apologized for Iraq/Afghanistan. I'm not holding a grudge over it. If you can't forgive him then that’s on you. There's things that have been done to my people that I won't forgive either so I understand, you'd never hear me say stop being mad or "get over it" like they do with slavery. But what people won't tolerate is the angry mob coming for them when we happen to be past a grudge that you are still holding on to. If you're mad at Bush go harass him. You come for me then I firing back. Simple as that.
