ReasonUser Banned (2 Weeks): Dismissive of Transphobia and the Impact Thereof
Maybe they aren’t experts on ethics that have to constantly clarify their stance on every cutting edge moral dilemma society faces? Kinda Funny folks are well meaning entertainers and that’s all. They can’t be expected to step into every fight, and honestly sometimes they shouldn’t because they could mess up and make people even more mad, due in part because they aren’t educated enough on the issue.
The blatant absurd over the top nonsensical sexuality of cyberpunk is messed up but hey that’s what so much of society is all about I guess. But to constantly expect Video game people to talk about it and address is is asking for trouble. Maybe they are busy formulating their thoughts and opinions. Maybe they want to be nuanced and thoughtful. Are they allowed to think things through without the witch hunt?
Gaming HangoutsThreadApex Legends |OT3| Season 9 Legacy: Bringing A Bow To A Gun Fight
ReasonUser Warned: Lazy Dev Rhetoric
Only a few weeks left in the season and dropping from the jump ship is still bugged and suffers from random losses of speed. Wonder what they’ll break next season? You won’t be able to pick up loot from a bin (oh wait, that was a few seasons back when that was broken and sometimes you wouldn’t pick stuff up if you tried too quick)?
On top of that and my complaint last week about the massive increase in having no or one teammate, this season has black and white story pages and a barebones, lackluster town takeover (drain the gas, grab the loot)...
I though the whole “working from home” thing actually involved “working?”

Personally don’t think her OG art is that bad, though for me it was more of a case of vocal dissonance that played part in it. Same thing with OG Lachesis.
Also , what do you think? Perhaps it could give Ass-kr Olwen some competition. Oh yeah! Elinci-Ass! Now that’s a better ring! Not sorry!

ReasonUser Banned (Permanent): Transphobic trolling, long history of hostility
Sorry to say, but Nora's ban was wrong in the first place. Not because that post shouldn't be actionable, but because that kind of post has never been actioned before and hasn't been actioned since, accusing everyone you disagree with of being privileged cishet male has always been standard on this forum

ReasonUser Banned (2 weeks): hostility, inflammatory generalizations and comments, misrepresenting other members
This site is a genuine Garbage fire. I don’t like ‘stanning’ fir the waypoint crew because I don’t like to be that kind of fan. I like their podcasts, I’m not their defense force.
but the low key insinuation that the team is bigoted and right wing and prentend to be left is some of the most blatant GG adjacent rhetoric I’ve seen on this site maybe ever. It’s the most shut up and Don’t critique our games, also you are wrong and also a bigot. Just an absolute trash fire.

ReasonUser Banned (3 Days): Generalisation Around Alt-Right Rhetoric (SJW)
There's a weird German word for that feeling I'm experiencing watching all these performative gamergaters pretend to get excited for a Harry Potter game, a franchise typically most enjoyed by performative SJW-types. There will be another German word for watching the same gamergaters pretend to like the game after they get it and it's a games-as-service full of bad micro-transactions and lame events.
Gaming HangoutsThreadLimited Run Games |OT| Sweet XOXO for Digital to Physical Media
ReasonUser 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.

ReasonUser banned (permanent): Trolling, inventing highly inflammatory accusations. No moderator created any such thread, no such thread was deleted
I love you guys, but I can't stay in this place anymore.
You heard about Etika, how this forum's sjw nutjobs gang up and shat on him? Hell, even a mod made a thread that mocked his suicidal mindset. Now they deleted said thread to cover their tracks. They're always covering their tracks. And now they are deleting posts and banning users that are pointing it all this shit to them.
How much of a hypocritical pieces of shit can they be?
No, this shit has run it's course.
Hope you guys are ok and we'll see each other in T7. (Bumping everyone: "Fight me!")

ReasonUser Warned - Thread Derailment & hostility to community
Dude mind your business and don't tell me what to do, I been here asking long before the Reddit purge. And I'll keep asking as much as I like, the leaks on this website are the only thing good on here, everything else is reposted nonsense that everyone already seen. And if we don't ask for leaks nothing comes out cause people like you like to wait and wait for leaks to "magically" appear.

ReasonUser Banned (1 Week): Dismissing concerns surrounding hate, underage sex, and harassment groups
Honest question, why do people care so much about the THQ stuff. It doesn't effect your life or games or anything whatsoever. Yes I get that the website is disgusting, but just like me, it sounds like most people didn't even know it existed until this afternoon and everyone is just outraged because everyone else is outraged. Can we all take a step back and just say "look it's dumb that they thought it was a good idea to promote their company by going on a website that is bad" and just leave it at that? Why does everything have to be taken to the nth degree? People calling for firings and boycotting games and devs because of some bad PR decision seems so pointless.

ReasonUser banned (1 month): Thread derail. Trolling over multiple posts. History of similar behavior.
I got banned for "derailing a thread" because I complained that a historical moment in wrestling, for a transgender wrestler winning a title, was spoiled in a thread title before it even aired on the west coast.
Meanwhile, nearly every thread in gaming is derailed immediately, and threads in OT are filled with misinformed people(the Fed injecting money thread for example) but no one is ever banned for it.

You are being an tone-policing asshole, plain and simple. Don't assume someone's tone from a fucking forum post because it has a swear. Whether you were trying to or not, you were being an asshole in asking me to justify my opinion, which isn't even uncommon. If you can't read that in your original post and this one, I have no interest in responding to you.

ReasonUser Banned (Duration Pending): Making inflammatory false equivalencies surrounding harassment, hostility, and a history of downplaying the influence and impact of harassment movements.
It would have been a major red flag hadn't they fired her. She misappropriated members of the community, citing whataboutisms with unrelated gamergate bullshit. She punched down and attacked him with a baseless accusation about sexism. It's pathetic to see posters here stanning for her bullshit.
It's fucking pathetic. You don't attack customers for engaging in a dialogue that you yourself created. You would get fired for that behaviour justifiable in most places.
There was no condescending tone. Stop defending harrasment FFS.
Fucking unreal to see this bullshit here.
ReasonUser Banned (Duration Pending): Sexism; Prior severe ban for excusing blackface
She sticks out in that group of guys. she's outspoken. She says things about others(like jeff Bakalar) that sounds mean spirited, but she gets a free pass. Not My cup of tea, but there's plenty of people who like her, so I guess I don't have much of a say aside from stating it here.
