Reason User Banned (permanent): Racism, xenophobia
I hate to say it but, it might be a case of most Japanese(Asian) people not being able to tell the difference between each other at the end of the day. If a customer doesn't do anything besides get in (with an app even) and leave, how would they know or even remember what non-japanese they encountered that day? If it was a German based disease and people in NY were put on full alert and random white dude takes the metro, would people be as freeked out because Americans didn't do enough to stop it, how could Joe Blow not notice?

Gaming HangoutsThread Limited Run Games |OT| Sweet XOXO for Digital to Physical Media
Reason User Banned (3 Days) - Advocating Piracy
I disagree that Snatcher should get another print, anybody that wants to play the game can do so with ridiculous ease. There is no guilt in playing a pirated game that costs a months rent, with none of the money going to the dev. Konami doesn't give a flip about making a few thousand dollars selling a couple copies. If they really wanted money they'd release the game digitally, which I wouldn't mind. Releasing a new physical copy today would only be for the purpose of disrupting the collector market. Also nevermind collectors, as I've been repeatedly telling people over the years that don't want to pirate it. It doesn't cost much to buy the game off eBay, play through it, then relist the game on eBay. All it'd cost to play the game like this is the eBay sales fees. Or even, it's free to play if you can manage to sell the game on Craigslist. Nuking the value would hurt a fair number of non-collectors who simply wanted to play the game.

GamingThread PlayStation cancels planned PAX East appearence due to increasing concerns related to Coronavirus [SEE STAFF POST]
Red Text The intent of the staff post was simply to say "stop the personal attacks" which is something that a lot of posters have clearly failed to do. We do not support xenophobia or conspiracy theories. We do not support anti-vaxxer nonsense. Not now, not ever. To say otherwise is insulting and disingenuous.

Ohhh boy, we got a Question Asker here. Someone who's "just asking a question, that's all". Nothing more than that! No agenda. Just asking a simple question -- "what facts do you have, good sir? May I see them? I believe it's in all our best interest to focus on this specific wording at the expense of the overall message, so that we may all Get The Facts!" In case I'm embarrassingly mistaken, and you genuinely seeking understanding, the being ignored are that Sony has given their reasoning already, and reacting to it spitefully is motivated by something more sinister than simply "oh, they're mistaken, Boston actually a hotbed of coronavirus activity!"

I think the fear is that Chinese Americans are more likely to have had contact with Chinese people, or even possibly have traveled to China recently themselves, than average. That, plus evidence that some carriers of Coronavirus may be asymptomatic. It’s an infinitesimal chance, but I get it.

EtcetEraThread Is it ok to be uncomfortable?
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Mansplaining and sexism and trolling over a series of posts
so I’ve been here “listening” to what everyone said and taking it to heart instead of debating or arguing, and I appreciate the input. I think it’s good to learn from mistakes, I’ve never really been in this kind of situation before usually people in my circle enjoy a bit of healthy debate, and perhaps this wasn’t healthy debate. And I’m at fault. Which is totally ok and why I asked. It’s good to learn yea? I’d love to respond to everyone but instead I’ll reply to two for now. First:you are the guy that evaded a permaban and types all kinds of moral ethical dilemma bullshit about that ban, as well as about weird ass shit in the nintendo direct threads. Not sure what your deal is but seem like youve got some problems. Probably shouldn’t be commenting on other people. Also the last thread wasn’t a troll, it was a real situation and real story played up for some laughs. Not all jokes hit, but if all jokes are trolls then we gotta ban about half the board. Get over yourself.now I don’t know if you deliberately misread what I said, but the first thing I said that I agreed with them that women shouldn’t be made to feel uncomfortable, sexually or not. I am totally onboard with that and I explained that, and also that I didn’t know what the actress said or what she felt so I couldn’t really argue about that. I think the biggest thing was I kept going when I obviously should have stopped, and my gfs sister (mainly) kept insisting that the point wasn’t the foot stuff and Tarantino, but being uncomfortable in general. Again I’m ok to be wrong, I’m happy to learn from mistakes, thats what makes us better people, and I won’t make that mistake again, but at no point did I even insinuate that it’s ok to force women to do something against their will. I’m still ok to be the asshole, I accept that and I’ll apologize to her. Edit: and the people harping on the marvel statement that that would be the part that people turn on me ... again that was a joke, and a hopefully obvious one. It might not have landed, but it’s a joke about how defensive marvel fans are around here. Whether you find it funny or not it’s ok, just relax a little bit.

GTA IV multiplayer hooked me a lot more than GTA Online so this is really disappointing. Rockstar cut a piece of their game off like it meant nothing.

Yes because I suggested beating my child. Maybe I made my point poorly but some people in this thread seem to think that any kind of hitting or grabbing even when the child is in mortal danger or at risk of harming themselves is a bad thing. If my child is about to walk into traffic or jam a fork where it doesn't belong I'll be using whatever force is necessary to remove that risk of harm.

Stop all the cringe landlord rhetoric, stop browsing economically clueless tankie subs like chapo and breadtube and stick to what economists say. Listen to the experts, like we kept telling all the Brexiters. You need to build more. Fixing the price does the opposite - it disincentivizes building. I won't repeat what you can find with a single google search. Economists have exhaustively studied rent control and the concensus is crystal clear. Honestly, I sometimes use rent control as a way to probe how one arrives at their decisions. If you are in favor of it, I know for a you've never read a study on it or have any clue of its ramifications. Makes me wonder whether your other political views are as thinly founded.

Reason User Banned (2 Weeks): Inflammatory False Equivalence and Antagonizing Other Users Over Multiple Posts
I don't know him or his story, and neither do you. It's funny that you bring up nazis, because as we know, a major aim of their self-targeted propaganda was to dehumanize the Jews so that they could rationalize their expulsion or death with no moral conflict and minimal cognitive dissonance. I see the same thing happening today on both ends of the political spectrum. Comparing people ITT to Nazis is NOT what I'm doing with this observation (nor do I even privately think that's at all merited) so don't take that out of context. I'm nonetheless struck by a pang of irony due to people in this thread breezily dismissing a human life because of assumptions they've made about him as an "other," and the categories they've assigned to him based on an article (or, more likely, just the information in the OP). I know how insufferable I sound, and if this thread was just filled with people calling this dude an idiot and making fun of his shoes that'd be one thing. It's the wishful thinking that his end should come and that we'd be better for it that rubs me the wrong way.I have zero issues with people calling out his idiocy and mocking him for it. That's not what I'm talking about here. If you feel like I'm being self righteous you need to take a step back and ask yourself why. I'm just having a hard conversation.
