Crypto currencies are objectively bad, and you’re objectively “less good” as a person if you participate in them.


EtcetEraThread Chris Pratt attends an anti-gay church with a history of child molestation and ex-gay therapy
Reason User Banned (3 days): Inflammatory generalizations
This is kinda what I came in to say. You could replace "Chris Pratt" with just about anyone who goes to a church.


GamingThread EA Motive's Dan Lowe compares the input response times of RDR2 with Uncharted, Assassin's Creed etc
Reason User warned: antagonizing other members
So you're suggesting they just stumbled upon some technical hurdle only for movement, where as the rest of the game is seemingly free from such technical limitation? So you genuinely believe that despite all evidence to the contrary, that Rockstar just couldn't figure out how to make walking more responsive? Because from all the information presently available, it seems very clear that this was an intentionally design decision. That's not even excusing the choice, or taking a side either way, it's just an objective observation. You seem rather invested in getting into people's shit and arguing for the sake of it because you either want to be right, or you're just bored sitting in front of whatever connected device you're using. I'm not tone policing, so much as just calling you out for being an outright asshole to people...because you can? You must be a blast at parties. "NO SHARON, THIS SONG ISN'T GOOD, I DON'T CARE IF THEY USED DISTORTION INTENTIONALLY, IT SOUNDS LIKE SHIT WHY CAN'T YOU SEE THAT, YOU STUPID APOLOGIST!" I think everyone fully understands what input lag is. The problem with your assertion is that you ignore that the lag isn't present across all inputs, which means this isn't a technical limitation. Given that information, all signs point to this being an intentional choice. I can't argue if it's the right or wrong choice because I don't own the game and likely won't for quite some time (I'm not too terribly interested in it)...but that still doesn't change the fact that what we're seeing in RDR2 isn't traditional input lag caused on a technical level. Delay can absolutely be artificially implemented, and given the rest of the information present here...that's very likely what is going on here.


GamingThread Despite saying that it wouldn't have any, GT Sports introduces microtransactions in its new update
Reason User Banned (3 Days): Inflammatory false equivalence. Prior warnings for provocative posting style.
This sounds like a GamerGate Jr. discussion. "It's about holding them accountable! They lied! We need integrity and accuracy!" I mean, what the hell is this thread even supposed to accomplish? Will Polyphony go to video game jail? The outrage is absolutely ridiculous. I mean genuinely sit back and look at it from the outside: People are literally mad because other people have the ability to buy something in a game, even if they personally don't want to. They're mad because "they said they wouldn't!"...but so what? Everything indicates that nothing else has changed, all content is still available for free (and presumably will continue to be free) why the outrage? Because they said "no" instead of "maybe"? It just sounds so childish, it's genuinely hard to take any point of discussion here seriously when it's so irrational. They haven't locked off any past free content behind pay walls, they haven't introduced pay to win mechanics, and they haven't said that this is the end of free content. So literally all of the outrage is because "they lied" and gamers want "justice". When you get angry when people say gamers are entitled children, you can look to behavior like this, when a small inconsequential development happens, and it balloons to hundreds of posts where gamers express their outrage at a "lie" over something that will literally never impact them.


GamingThread Let's talk about playable heterosexual women in games lacking romantic agency
Reason User banned (1 week): thread whining, dismissing concerns of female representation, history of similar behaviour
Jesus what a trainwreck of a thread this will be. Outrage culture sucks, and this is what happens when it backfires. "Oh no, these female protagonists don't love men! This is a problem!" I can't roll my eyes hard enough.
