EtcetEraThread Prince Philip has died aged 99, Buckingham Palace announces
Reason User banned (Permanent): Hostility, backseat moderation and downplaying racism over a series of posts. Ban upgrading to permanent following hostile ticket.
Not at all. Just others to show some decency. The man had his faults, that is for certain, but he was overwhelmingly a positive force, particularly in the lives of young people. A wife of seventy years, his children and family lost someone special to them today. There is a time and a place to be a fool, but it is disrespectful in the thread announcing his death.

EtcetEraThread Prince Philip has died aged 99, Buckingham Palace announces
Reason User banned (2 weeks): Thread derail, attacking the community, inflammatory accusations
A lot of Era users consider themselves to be good stand up people. Pride flags, strong left wing views, posting on Era in support of progressive issues etc. Then make a complete show of themselves in threads like this over, and over, and over again. Not as well natured and mannered as they like to think, and definitely don't like being called out on it. Some of the posts in this thread are a disgusting embarrassment and at this point it is expected. Ghoulish is absolutely the right term.

GamingThread What If... The Last of Us Remake included the likenesses of Bella Ramsey and Pedro Pascal?
Reason User Banned (2 Weeks): Deadnaming
Given the debacle they had with Ellen Page (now Elliot Page) likeness being used for Ellie's original design (before they changed it) in the first TLOU, I don't see it happening. If that happened they would need to pay royalties to both actors. If/When the remake gets revealed, they will most likely use the models they already created in TLOU pt. 2 flashbacks of TLOU 1 story.

Remember the glory days of *checks watch* a month ago when everyone was convinced Sony got the rights for Silent Hills and Kojima was making it and it was going to be the most hype game of all time? I think I'm starting to see why Ponies annoy everyone. And I'm saying that as someone who basically is a Pony myself.

He crashed spectacularly on a road that is almost straight and he has a history of incidents involving drug abuse. Yes, I have been paying attention. This accident doesn't seems like a case of "just rushing to meet his obligations!" at all. We both don't know what happened, but don't try to gaslight me into thinking drug abuse is completely unlikely to be the culprit in this case.

GamingThread Why are religious people almost always shown as violence loving extremists or as dumb backwards people?
Reason User threadbanned, further action pending review: excessive hostility over a series of posts
Stop fucking lying, gaslighting and putting your strawman in other peoples mouths. Its fucking disgusting. Not shoving your fucking religion down other peoples throats with shit like abortion laws is not being forced to renounce your faith. You like to ACT like it is, because you are taught proselytizing is your God given right and duty to do to others, and that power to force onto other people clearly fucking resonates with you. But its not your right, and not getting to shove your shit down other peoples throats is not you being opressed. They. Are Not The. Same Thing I know your fucking shit like the back of my hand. You arent fooling anyone with this pretend to be the victim crap. It's literally the first default go to tactic. I grew up in this slimy two faced shit pile of 'rhetoric'. It's literally the reason I dropped religion the second I was able to escape.

EtcetEraThread Black Americans flock to gun stores and clubs: 'I needed to protect myself' - Gun ownership among Black Americans is up 58.2%
Reason User Banned (duration pending review): dismissive commentary over a series of posts
I'm not here to be anyone's ally, your country sees us as a tributary state for it to plunder, so its cool with me whatever you choose to do (i just hope individuals in it dont suffer for it obviously), but I keep up with news in general and the US is the cultural hegemon (even more so black American culture). And your comment could literally be extended to anything that is culture related (dont talk to Europeans about race relationships they have their own history!, dont talk to Russians about corruption, they have their own history!) Maybe take the opportunity to look at a perspective not clouded by the fog of your own culture (like how Europeans should do so with Racism) It is a fact tho that saying "i dont trust statistics, i trust my gun to feel safe" is Anti-intellectualism and that it is a cultural prerogative that the US is currently exercising (both from the right and the left), same as how guns are culturally accepted, and I made a comment about that, simple as.I wouldnt have black americans do anything (because im not american or black), im not proposing solutions to your issues, im just commenting on the anti-intellectualism revolving around it.

EtcetEraThread Black Americans flock to gun stores and clubs: 'I needed to protect myself' - Gun ownership among Black Americans is up 58.2%
Reason User Banned (3 weeks): inflammatory accusations and commentary surrounding gun violence
Not perfect, obviously, but better than waiting on all the broken promises to fix policing, let alone economic racism. Anti-gun fundamentalism hasn't done shit for anybody, and neither has the tunnel vision on gun ownership only being possible on the level of the individual.Solidly stupid pronouncement when there's white supremacists marching and menacing people anytime they think they have an opening. But that's the 'progressive' way, pay lip service to the brutality of policing against minorities in one breath, and excoriate those same minorities when they have the gall to take steps to defend themselves and each other in the next. You're either with us or you're with the frothing NRA gun cultists!

EtcetEraThread Convince me to get vaccinated
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending Further Review): Downplaying COVID severity, conspiracy rhetoric
Hey, so I'm really afraid of the vaccine. Much more than I am of COVID. At the start of all of this, I was pretty freaked out by COVID, and I thought many people I knew were going to die. But here we are 1 year later and I don't know a single person that got very sick from COVID, much less was hospitalized or died. I know a handful of people that had it, but their symptoms were basically nothing. There were many high-risk people I know that I was almost certain would get very sick and/or die, but it simply didn't happen (and most of these people were very careless in terms of taking the virus seriously). I myself, as an "essential worker," have had to be out in the world almost every day since this all started. I've been sick twice with cold/flu-like symptoms, but both times had negative COVID test results. I'm not an anti-vaxxer. I have all of my childhood vaccines for measles, mumps etc. And I get the flu shot every year. But the speed in which the vaccine was rolled out combined with the degree to which it is seemingly being pushed on the public is causing my paranoia to go into overdrive. I mean, much of the response to the pandemic has been insane in my opinion, but we don't need to go there. Basically, in the end, I don't trust the government. I have no idea what this vaccine will do to me, and I feel like it's largely unnecessary for me personally. But at the same time, it would be a relief to not have to worry as much about COVID anymore, and if it could protect others that would be nice. Yet if I get vaccinated, I feel like my worry would just shift to wondering what effect the vaccine will have on me in the future. It seems everyone here is very excited to get vaccinated, and I am happy for all of you who have been able to do so. Everyone in my family is vaccinated now, so I'm the only hold out. I just can't shake the feeling that there's something nefarious going on, so I don't know what to do.

GamingThread Has Xbox taken the spot as the defacto casual console recommendation?
Reason User Banned (3 Days) - Platform Warring & Thread Whining
I feel this. Just go through this thread and take a drink every time you read “value” and you’ll be dead by page 2. That and the acquisition nonsense, basically telling half the forum to piss off because they want MS to buy studios to lock up games. It’s embarrassing and beyond just being fans. It’s corporate cheerleading. I bought a PS5 & Series X at launch and have a Switch. I fucked around with game pass for a month and then sold the Xbox. I really feel like the Game pass stans are overselling it by quite a bit. Basically, I play games and visit forums as an escape. The bullshit tribalism has gotten even worse in this forum. Console Warz was always obnoxious, but it seems even worse now. Even the PS5 subreddit gets stormed by game pass stans constantly. Like, we get it, Jesus Christ, you can stop yelling about it already.
