EtcetEraThread How do you read Off Topic and not have your mood completely ruined?
Reason User Banned (3 days): Hostility
There's a lot of insufferable assholes in ResetERA who enjoy trying to drag everyone down to their pit of misery where nothing can ever be good because their life sucks and they're suffering more than anyone, or so they claim. Fucking ignore them. You can stay informed about the world around you, but the minute you see a defeatist idiot trying to tell you there's no hope for the world, you can just "tell" them to fuck off with the ignore option. It's not a lack of empathy, I'm just not in the mood to play sadness olympics with defeatist faceless users who think they're doing good by "saying it like it is" or whatever it's happening inside their warped minds. But I hope they find the help they need, I truly do.

Reason User Warned: Inappropriate language and platform warring
The PCMR folks act like everyone out here is rolling with 144 Hz monitors or 120 Hz TVs. No reason to do anything but roll your eyes at the silliness there.I'm curious, with this game in particular, what made you decide to do this? I watched the Digital Foundry video and it seemed pretty clear the improvements in graphics for the 30 fps mode seem pretty minor.

GamingThread The Big House Online C&D'd by Nintendo; Event Cancelled
Reason User Banned (3 days): Hostility
God, got that boot lodged way down your throat lmao. "Look at these examples that they didn't fail! This is proof they never lost anything ever!" Fuck off with that cherrypicked bullshit. "I mean, you made the statement, you need to back it up some way other than 'well, they could and can't be trusted'." This right here proves you don't get it. I literally do not need to back it up further because preservation should be proactive, not reactive. One point of failure means it's not actually preserved. You have no actual idea what you're talking about and it's clear you just want to pretend your favorite company is just special. Even the link you gave only went back to the early 90s and, to be blunt, none of that was actually preserved before it leaked. Unless you can show me them holding on to literally everything, you can't say they did it. You're arguing that because you haven't personally witnessed something, it couldn't have happened. No amount of "well there hasn't been any *reported* loss" is going to change anything. If it's not publicly available, it's not preserved. Period. No "but what about"s, because they times they didn't fail didn't prove they have never failed. You're naive if you think they've never lost anything.

GamingThread How are the mini-boss encounters in Sekiro fairly designed/respectable of the player’s time?
Reason User Banned (1 month): hostility, many prior bans for hostility toward other members
You must love the smell of your own farts my dude. Get over yourself. I never said I “just want to win.” I think the way the game is designed, particularly with its mini-bosses, is insulting and unfair, and yes, a waste of time. I don’t want a game to feel like I’m studying for a final exam. It is what it is. The games are not for me, and quite frankly its fans and I clearly have wildly different mindsets and perspectives, as well.

GamingThread Did anyone else buy a PS5 from a scalper? (OP scammed, Help inside)
Reason User banned (5 days): inappropriate armchair diagnosis
Scalpers suck and, I'm sorry OP but it's true, people who pay twice the price of a videogame console because they can't wait a few more weeks and hurt others in doing so are the very definition of a looser. If you didn't do what you did, scalpers wouldn't have reduced the available stock and maybe you'd have found a console. Next time you feel an urge like this, I'd recommend rather talking to a therapist.

GamingThread Cyberpunk 2077 Physical Next-Gen?
Red Text In recognition of International Transgender Day of Remembrance, we’ve made the decision to lock all threads about Cyberpunk 2077 for today (November 20th) to raise awareness about the concerns related to the publisher and the game. Originally the plan was to close the OT on this date as it was the day after the game was due to release; there will still be an OT closure on the day after release to honor that commitment. However, with marketing for the game now in full swing, this is another way to draw attention to the issue. The threads will be reopened tomorrow.

EtcetEraThread Rahm Emanuel under consideration to become Biden's transportation secretary
Reason User Banned (Permanent): Inflammatory generalizations; numerous bans for similar behavior despite a low post count
Wow, so a guy tried to compromise with pre-Trump Republicans? Truly that makes him history's greatest monster and he should be in a re-education camp somewhere. Rahm is... not great and the compromise policies generally failed but the vitriol that is flowing from this thread is pretty symptomatic of a lot of people's warped view of what politics are now. There's going to be compromise in politics, there just is. This is the definition of politics since it's inception. But I would rather have someone who can effectively implement and administration's goals (which Rahm may or may not be able to do) rather than slavering zealots who are there because they passed some purity test.

Reason User Banend (5 days): Avatar shaming and antagonizing another member; account in junior phase.
I'm sure the person with the Ellie avatar isn't biased at all. But to be blunt, ND and CDPR are pretty much on the same level of garbage right now, and you liking the output of one of the studios doesn't change that. You're the exact kind of person I'm talking about, getting absolutely incensed because I made a generalization about the discourse surrounding a AAA game you liked. TLOU2 is not special, ND do not get a pass.

GamingThread CDPR is a transphobic company. It's time we stop making excuses for them.
Reason User banned (2 weeks): disingenuous concern trolling https://www.resetera.com/goto/post?id=52283432
Serious question: when you say CDPR is transphobic, who exactly do you mean? All of the 1100+ employees? All of management? Some people in management? Only the two founders? The Twitter guys? Only CD Project Red, or the whole CD project company? I think it's important when we call people transphobic (or racistic or..) to not generalize, and really blame the right people.

Eugenics, ending capitalism, countries working together against dictators, better education, better parenting, yadayada. Humans are dumb, ignorant, selfish creatures that can't see past their own noses most of the time, and that's why shit like this keeps happening, and why we're destroying this planet and actively ruining civilization as we know it.
