EtcetEraThread Is demanding western values from people of regressive countries imperialist?
Reason User Banned (Permanent): Xenophobia and racism, previous severe ban for xenophobia and defending sexualization of minors
Plenty of countries around the world don't share our values. Is it fair for us to blame, say, a Middle Eastern or Eastern European citizen for having regressive views when their whole society has those views and pushes for them? Is it fair to blame a Chinese citizen for believing the CCP? We know our values are superior to theirs but so did the missionaries that went into "uncivilized" places. I know this is a very cismale white take but we're not going to stop the systemic bigotry in those countries by yelling at individuals who just grew up in their value systems. It feels like we're mostly just sending the message that people from less progressive countries should just not talk freely on the internet since we'll jump on open statements but we won't go like "90% of that country is homophobic, we should assume someone from there is a homophobe until proven otherwise" so silence will always be in your favor. And since the people who actually talk without a PR agent filtering everything for them tend to be smaller people we're just beating down on regular folks, not the leaders who might actually get change done. The current event that brought this to mind was a Factorio dev (Czech) saying "fuck cancel culture" when pointed at the awful personal views of Uncle Bob (who's very much still an authority in software development despite being a shit person) but there have been other cases of devs from regressive countries speaking out with a matching regressive view and getting dogpiled for it in the past.

EtcetEraThread Novak Djokovic just upset Rafael Nadal in the 2021 French Open semi-finals (Nadal was 26-0 after reaching the semis)
Reason User Banned (2 Weeks): Hostility and Ableist Insults
love him or hate him he's a sportsperson that is one of if not the best of his time. Noone will care in 20 years that he was a no-vaxer and a tool, they will still respect his game. I hate Schumacher with a passion because he was a complete asshole on and off track and rules had to be implemented just to punish his behaviour (and then he was still an asshole in the last round against Villeneuve), because he never bothered to learn Italian while being in Italian teams (whereas fellow drivers learned it even if just briefly joining Italian-staffed teams) and because I never really liked his public persona. Is he still one of the best F1 drivers ever? Yes he is. Are people fucking retarded for being happy he had his skiing accident that left him in a vegetative state no matter how much they dislike him? Also yes. Similar things can be said for Tiger Woods and other GOATs Djoko is probably a shitty human being (and that was evident even before the pandemic iirc), still doesn't make him less of a GOAT.

EtcetEraThread Engagement Ring Shopping
Reason User banned (1 week): excessive hostility and vitriol against other members
My only advice is to not ask a video game forum what they think. Unsurprisingly whenever this comes up these threads are full of people “””debunking””” diamond rings. Wow!!! Diamonds are expensive!!! And they don’t even do anything cool like my gaming PC!!!! Thanks YouTube man, now I know my wife is just a dumb bitch!!! Some people like nice things and it’s not a character flaw for a woman to want a nice ring to mark a significant event in her life. I saved up and got my wife a beautiful lab grown diamond engagement ring, it was a good chunk of change. I don’t regret it. She adores the ring. It makes her happy. Making my wife happy is not a waste of money. She deserves nice things too because I love her. It’s not lost on me how sexist it is to depict women who like nice jewelry and diamond engagement rings as being shallow and stupid. Yet it’s perfectly acceptable for men on this forum to spend thousands of dollar on video games and computer parts. I guess only men need nice things?This shit right here Gee, I guess my wife doesn’t actually love me since she wouldn’t accept a ring pop to mark the minor event know as “our marriage”. Fuck off. Thinking it’s some kind of “red flag” that a woman would want a nice ring is some incel shit. Please don’t speculate on people’s marriage or how much their partner loves them based off wanting a ring, asshole. Look, no one should spend beyond their means, and it’s fine that a lot of people apparently don’t believe in buying an expensive ring for their future spouse. But you don’t need to demean the people that do and act like their relationships are somehow flawed because they got a nice ring. It’s insulting.

Reason User Banned (2 Weeks): Inflammatory Point of Comparison
As an atheist this always seemed extremely stupid to me. They have religious claim on the land and they want the rest of the world to respect and accept that. But on that very same basis, Christian's antisemitism should also be respected because the Jews killed Christ. I mean it's all bullshit if you ask me. But if i were to accept what they are doing now because some "holy" book says so, then i should also stand and watch if another Hitler rises and decides that from a Christian point of view, Jews should be exterminated. Religion should not be taken into account and accepted on national and political matters at all. I dont give a fuck what your imaginary friend told you, move the fuck away from my land.
