Reason User Banned (1 Month): Dismissive and Antagonistic Commentary over Multiple Posts in this Thread; History of Similar Behavior in Other Topics
Plausible deniability for what? Why is it Era to be the hunger games at times when the end result seems to be posters wanting or wishing others they debate with just get banned to get rid of them? You're constructing quite the us vs them in real time, then expressing publicly what appears to be unhappiness a ban hammer doesn't just go through a topic and pick off everyone you aren't happy with. That is precisely the of internet assumptions/accusations and going from 0 to 100 that quite clearly has Mike Pondsmith's jimmies rustled and has agitated a few in here. On Resetera it is banning or excluding people from being able to post, elsewhere on Twitter or wherever else it is accusing of the worst intent possible in order for accusations to go viral and people to be left upset and distressed. Whether its staff, creators or whoever it is. All shapes and forms of what I see as internet radicalization. Many people aren't looking to talk or be challenged, or have to read/listen or maybe hold off on fearing the worst. They just seek confirmation bias and failing that, getting those who dared challenge them banned, smeared, accused and sent packing. I mean, is there nuance to "dismissing your viewpoints?". Does someone simply saying to you, have you considered this, equal outright dismissal? Because in amongst all the debating of the voodoo boys myself and others tried to bring 2020 lore and also an interview with Yong Yea explaining what Mike Pondsmith was trying as a rebuttal to some posters remarks (often the remarks that were the most certain around intent). Is that ? Is dismissal simply as a concept as black and white as "Do you agree with me or not?".I've never said it's not a concern, I simply find it exhausting to see absolutism and then the branches from that which often result in if you dare bring evidence or other viewpoints to my initial accusation, you are simply unfairly dismissing. Listening to feedback and being questioned is part of the creative process, but some of the accusations and absolutism is hardly done in a way which can be taken in good faith. You're painted as from the start and then have to spend more time trying to clear your name than actually addressing concerns.
