EtcetEraThread A glowing celebration of America's flag.
Reason User warned: sniping, ignoring staff post
The one thing that I always find very weird about US communists is that their entire project hinges on the US military being willing to overthrow the US government (as US-based militias stand no chance against the US military in combat), but they also constantly are against the institutions that are generally aligned with the US military as well as the US military itself. It just comes off as so bad tactically to make the whole thing seem like a LARP.

On one thread we are denouncing gun ownership as it leads to horrific violence and on another thread pretty much giving someone license to kill over a shove. You can see he is simply annoyed not in fear of his life for fuck sake. People need to be able to restrain themselves better, too many people are happy to resort to violence for fucking anything.

I'm not saying an opposing one is a hive mind, I'm saying using the same rhetoric and talking points that are rattled off in this thread, and even the dismissive laughing, is indication of a hive mind. Also - your assertions are bold, I'll give you that, but I don't understand the reason for trying to drown the idea before it even has some level of fruition (unless you just get off on hating anything new/trendy, in which case go ahead).

GamingThread Kinda Funny is Reallly good at maintaining Crew.
Reason User Banned (Permanent): Troll account
I don’t think being friends with people with different viewpoints from yours is a bad thing. We have a huge political divide in the world right now. Cutting out people with different political beliefs just means that the only place they can look for friendship is in other people with the same beliefs, which is partially why both sides have become more extreme and the middle is disappearing. And for that reason, I prefer Colin’s stance of being inclusive rather than the Kinda Funny stance of “if you don’t agree with us, then just leave”. To word it another way, racism is objectively bad, but if you immediately demonize everyone who has different political beliefs to yours, is that really any better?

I got yelled at in the politics OT this week for suggesting how inept Biden and his team are and how the Democrats fucking suck and are leading us to shit and have been for 50 years. Nice seeing that shit deals like this are still being made by the Biden admin. Keep voting ya'll! One day they will finally listen to us. Im sure of it. Like I said in the OT - if you're some kind of minority, for your own good, please look to leave the USA behind cause shit is gonna get down right ugly for you all these next 20 years here. Unfortunately, the party that was supposed to be looking out for you all is too asleep at the wheel, or just plain old corrupt, to do anything about it. Fuck the GOP, Biden, and the Democrats.

GamingThread Ron Gilbert will no longer post about Return to Monkey Island because of toxic "fans"
Reason User Banned (1 Month): Downplaying harassment, account in junior phase
I'm surprised when creatives can't handle this type of criticism (if you can call it that). If someone makes a hateful and/or flippant comment about your work they probably socially immature or an actual child , so why take it to heart? You cannot reason with them, call them out, shame them or make any sort of intelligent rebuttal that will land with them. None of that works because don't care and are probably just making a drive-by comment anyway. The thing is, there valid reason to critique the art style. I bet if someone had privately posted the character designs in a community of professional designers they would get lots of sensible suggestions on how to improve the designs (I suspect its more about proportionality of the facial features than any other choices). Art is subjective, yes, but there are tried and tested scientific principles that underpin good character design. Its not surprising how collective this response has been when you consider that when it comes to faces, you are not just dealing with artistic taste but also our shared lizard-brain perceptions of what a human aught to look like.

EtcetEraThread Biden: I'd support changing filibuster to codify Roe v. Wade
Reason User banned (1 week): inflammatory commentary
I’m going to answer your question. First and foremost, K-12 public “education” in America is not actually education, it’s indoctrination. They don’t actually teach history in America or civics. At best the schools teach white supremacist ideology, and worst, schools public function as pipelines to prison. If you’d like, I’m happy to tell you what kind of education children receive in American prisons. Now, as for what I expect Biden to do, I expect him to continue making deals to keep refugee children in cages, or helping McConnell decide which federal judges he’d like to give life time appointments to. Which frankly is par for the course. Do I expect him to beat senators or challenge people to a duel? Don’t be silly. Biden’s goal is to uphold American colonialism and imperialism, not work on behalf of his constituents.

EtcetEraThread New Florida Law Makes Blasting Music in Car A Punishable Offense
Reason User Banned (Permanent): Troll Account
If you're blasting your trash music in the vicinity of others, as if others don't require silence for anything they want to do, you know what you're doing, and since you don't care about others' quality of life, no one else should feel bad whether or not you feel like shit for being punished for it. It will be briefly humorous, at the very least, for everyone else. For the many that are prematurely assuming this will unfairly target minorities, it's almost as if you want them to, so you can congratulate yourselves when it becomes true. The thing is, all of you might be exactly right, but we don't know that yet. Also, how would you even know it actually targeted minorities? Assuming Florida's police are corrupt enough, which probably aligns with said assumptions, they could just falsify or make up their stats. And then, assuming they actually recorded videos, retained evidence, and do everything to apply the law prudently, will the negative assumptions still be there? I just don't understand the need to prematurely whine about something that hasn't happened yet, and yet, everyone also whines about there not being enough evidence or that there's too much corruption or some other things that are directly related to automatically assuming others are assholes and lying. I'm surprised that at least one moderator has prematurely made this about race, somehow, with no presented evidence. Is this how the forum is operated? Will this post be deleted?
