EtcetEraThread Supreme Court overturns Roe v Wade (See Staff Post)
Red Text The news today is extremely abhorrent, and many people are furious over the reversal of Roe v. Wade. All of us on staff are feeling similarly - defeated, angry, frustrated - we understand. But we cannot allow for calls to violence here. We will not host that content and anyone doing it will catch a ban. Similarly, dismissive calls to "just move" that downplay the reality of many people's situations will also be moderated.

EtcetEraThread Johnny Depp Jury Finds That Amber Heard Defamed Him in Op-Ed
Red Text Like we said previously, this is a divisive and contentious issue. Please DO NOT make this situation harder than it needs to be by starting fights with each other and picking fights across different threads. Please report posts that you feel are actionable, but do not engage in cross-thread hostilities or drama

EtcetEraThread Shireen Abu Akleh, Al Jazeera journalist, killed by Israeli forces
Reason User Banned (Permanent): Dismissive Commentary; Account in Junior Phase
Red Text Link removed
I know it may be an unpopular opinion but Al-Jazeera without proof claims IDF shot journalist Shireen Abu Akleh. Attached, a Palestinian militant firing recklessly without looking: "We hit a soldier!". Shreen wore a vest and helmet. No reported IDF casualties. Israel offered a joint investigation, Palestinians refused. Here is the video

EtcetEraThread Russia has begun a full-scale invasion in Ukraine [READ STAFF POSTS]
Red Text OK, can we please stop derailing the thread with the Germany talk? If there is a legit article and legit sources (not twitter randos) then make a thread, the focus here should be on the conflict in Ukraine itself and not on one specific nation that isn't even directly involved.

EtcetEraThread Russia has begun a full-scale invasion in Ukraine [READ STAFF POSTS]
Red Text Look, this should go without saying, but not everyone in Russia supports Putin's war in Ukraine. We all joke about how dissenters are liable to "accidentally" find themselves falling out of 5th story windows, into some stray bullets, after drinking tea that was somehow contaminated with radioactive materials, but it is very true that dissent is harshly criminalized and there are those who have been killed for either asking too many questions or asking the wrong questions. We have seen it happen to everyone from activists and political leaders to journalists and whistleblowers who only sought to shine a light on the injustice their fellow countrymen face. People have been thrown in jail on trumped up charges or straight up assassinated in ways that make it blatantly obvious what has happened to them.

EtcetEraThread Chris Rock's Antagonistic and Demeaning Behaviour Towards Jada Pinkett Smith Didn't Start in 2016 but in 1997. (SEE STAFF POST)
Red Text While Will Smith's slapping of Chris Rock is the inciting incident for this video, this video and this thread is specifically about the history between Chris Rock and Jada Pinkett Smith, specifically Chris Rock's consistent animosity towards her. Keep the thread on topic; any posts litigating the incident at the Oscars will be subject to a month-long ban

EtcetEraThread 2022 Oscars Nominations (See Staff Post)
Red Text Just to remind people, staff have already locked two threads concerning the incident between the Smiths and Chris Rock due to the volatile and inconsiderate nature of the discussion that took place in both threads, and we are still combing posts and reports. Subsequently, do not try to kite discussion of it over to this thread. Further discussion about it will result in swift moderator action. Thank you.

EtcetEraThread Oscars Launch Formal Review of Will Smith After Chris Rock Slap (Read Staff Post)(Update: Smith apologizes)
Red Text Staff are continuing to go through reports in the original thread, and we probably will for awhile considering that thread's size. It will also likely not be reopened, but that isn't determined at this point in time. Still, we have a lot to address since discussion has moved here, so sit down and get comfortable kids.
Sure. One more time for the folks in the back:

Red Text So, I cannot believe that I need to say this, but if you're going to post something gory then put it behind spoiler tags. We have members with conditions like PTSD as well as various traumas and extremely graphic footage can be triggering to people so please be considerate and put stuff like that behind spoiler tags.

GamingThread PlayStation Studios |OT26| Ghost of Spartacus
Red Text Sony is hosting a State of Play highlighting Hogwarts: Legacy. This is disappointing, due to JK Rowling's horrible transphobia (among other issues with her), but it's not surprising due to marketing agreements and whatnot. That being said, we're not hosting threads about the game. Additionally, we're not going to host discussion about it in this thread, either. Any attempts to dance around this will be met with moderation.

GamingThread I wish I could turn the rewind function of NSO games on/off.
Red Text Self control can mean a lot of different things to different people. It is not always easy and can have many other factors at play that most people never experience. Be open minded. Those who suffer poor self control often need help and support, you see this clearly with addiction victims for example. It isn't always simple and there is no need to downplay it.
This thread is now unlocked. Lets tidy it up going forward so we don't have to lock it up again.
