Reason User Banned (1 day): Hostility
The reason people aren’t following isn’t because they’re jumping in, it’s because your argument is a lot dumber than you clearly think it is. I would also suggest from your patronising tone that the same is true of you.

Reason User Banned (1 Month): Excusing Racial Discrimination
I'm not familiar with this company but I would guess they probably had some bad experiences with travellers (the dodgy ones can be really dodgy) and this is an ill-advised blanket ban to try and prevent it from happening again.

Reason User Banned (Permanent): Trolling and antagonizing other users over a series of posts. History of severe warnings
The woke mob on this site are toxic as fuuuuck. Can’t even be bothered to watch a clip in context. Bill Burr is a human piece of shit because he has a questionable take once in awhile? He’s a racist because he thinks Gina comparing the Jewish struggle to the “Republican struggle” is merely a stupid and terrible comparison? Is this really what we are doing now? I assure you Bill has done more charity work than any miserable hyper woke fuck on this site.

Reason User Banned (2 Weeks): Dismissing Concerns Around Transphobia
I cant defend this guy because his views are horrible but seeing the Twitter/internet mob come after this whole game scares me As you all know, it takes hundreds of people to make any AAA game like this these days. After many years of wishing and hoping for an open world game from the long dormant HP game series, I would hate to see this project canceled because of a backlash That would also mean hundreds of game devs out of a job and means of income during a pandemic. Not to mention the fact that Avalanche barely survived post Disney. The WB acquisition saved them

Reason User Warned: please do not post videos like this, even if your intent is to make sure people do not take them seriously
Since I have seen his videos posted here a few times and Hoeg Laws bad take on this. He thinks people like Troy who have ideas you disagree with shouldn't be canceled and GG has some sexist people in it, but there take on gaming journalism is spot on. We even get namedrop at the end. Not endorsing these views, just wanted to make people aware, that he is a shithead.

GamingThread Clarification about my last thread about Life is Strange 3 and 4
Reason User banned (permanent): lying to users about their interactions with staff concerning insider information, by now pretending to have made up the information
Hey all, I just wanted to clarify why I asked for the about info I had heard about Life is Strange 3 to be closed. The reason I asked for it to be closed was I realized that my source's info simply came from stuff she had read online, which I had assumed to be sourced better. For example, the info about the game was from , the info about Deck Nine developing a third game was from this , the info about Life is Strange coming to switch was taken from a podcast, the info about it being developed in Unreal Engine 4 came from a , the info about Life is strange 3 being released soon came from a , etc. etc. I realized that my post was incredibly unsubstantiated and based on random rumors, so I asked for the thread to be closed. It wasn't my intention to misinform anyone or spread misinformation, and I didn't mean to get anyone's hopes up. For what it's worth I am a life is strange fan and I would be excited to see a new game. Again, I am extremely sorry for my previous thread being unsubstantiated and based on random rumors.

GamingThread Clarification about my last thread about Life is Strange 3 and 4
Red Text When we verify a rumor we normally never elaborate publicly on what evidence we're shown, in order to protect the careers of the people involved, and to ensure that others can feel confident in approaching us with information. In this case however we have no choice but to be more specific because our own integrity has now been called into question.

EtcetEraThread Switzerland is going to vote on a Burka Ban this weekend
Reason User Banned (3 Months): Concern Trolling Around Islamophobia; Prior Bans for Sexism and Spreading Misinformation
I agree on the ban. Islamophobic or not. Own choice or not. Framing this in '' religious freedom '' is strawmanning. You have the right to practice whatever religion you want nobody is taking that away from you. But you don't have the right to walk around in public completely devoid of any possible way of being identified because your religion demands it. Notwithstanding COVID. Covering your face completely in public should be illegal everywhere. There's absolutely no reason for it.

EtcetEraThread I don’t think cancel culture exists and we should stop giving the term credence.
Reason User Banned (3 Days): Inflammatory Generalization
IMO "Cancel culture" is turning into the same thing that "Deep state" already was: a simple way for people with working brains to tell who is full of crap/brainwashed. If they say it, they are either full of crap, or brainwashed. If you have a working brain, it is meaningless, like "lion banana" or "bleep blorp blurp" or "toboggan tarantula."

EtcetEraThread NY Governor Andrew Cuomo accused of sexual harassment by ex aide
Reason User banned (1 month): Conspiracy theories about sexual misconduct allegations, thread derailment
Please don't ban me or dogpile me for my naïveté of this, but is it me, or does the timing of these accusations seem suspicious? I happen to agree with this person below from Twitter. This is probably a ploy by Trump in order to get Cuomo out so that he & the GQP can get a Trump stooge such as Lee Zeldin as Governor to pardon state charges against Trump in 2022. The problem for Trump however, is that Kathy Hochul would most likely take over if Cuomo resigns. Cuomo's still a scumbag at the end of the day for keeping those COVID deaths from a nursery home a secret.

It’s dead in terms of being a good game without a bunch of micro transactions shoved down your throat and a forced Epic account. It’s not even on Steam anymore. They don’t care about the quality of the game, only the money they can make and the people they can force to use their shitty launcher that doesn’t even have a fifth of the features Steam does. I’d rather use Origin than their filth
