EtcetEraThread Man goes on misogynistic rant directed at women of bagel shop
Reason User banned (permanent): excusing bigotry and prior severe infractions surrounding sexism
I get that the dude's acting like a shitbag, but mocking him for his height is validating what he's saying.


GamingThread Days Gone Review Thread (See Staff Post)
Reason User banned(3 days): Sweeping generalizations and whataboutism, taking into account history of previous infractions
ResetEra: A forum where people will rightly bemoan working conditions of people in the industry, but won't bat an eye at taking a dump from on high on those same dev's hard work as long as it's in an attempt to be funny. Guess this forum isn't unique in that though, just thought it should be better here.


EtcetEraThread School condemns Trump-supporting students that harassed Native American man
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Inflammatory generalizations and threats of violence; previous severe infractions
Wipe KY off the face of the planet, jesus christ. Fucking bible belt.


GamingThread Awarding discrimination - The Game Awards
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Repeatedly and antagonistically dismissing concerns surrounding sexism; history of similar infractions
Because one is obviously illegal, while another is a grey area at worst.There is not a single valid basis for your wife not to want you to stream with black people. Just racist ones. On the other hand, there are valid reasons for your wife to not want you to stream with other women, especially considering how the twitch fanbase behaves itself. You know these things.

Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Posting in bad faith; dismissing a harassment campaign; prior infractions
"He said something bad once, meaning he never did anything good".


GamingThread Polygon: Tyler "Ninja" Blevins explains why he doesn't stream with women
Reason User banned (1 week) - repeated thread-whining and downplaying of sexism
Because fighting real fights is much harder than complaining about shit like this. True fact.


GamingThread IGN: How The Last of Us Remains a Masterpiece 5 Years Later
Reason User Banned (2 days): Thread policing, dismissing other users opinions. Ignoring mod instructions.
I really don't think your criticism, if you can call it that, added anything of substance to the thread. Exemplified by the fact that your post bemoaning people wanting to keep things "positive" outnumber those about the game 7:1. Not that I'm better in that particular case, but you get my point. And in regards to the asshole thing, it's not so much that you're an asshole, but rather that the act of purposefully going into a thread about something you have nothing but bad things to say about is an assholeish thing to do. Like, seriously. Imagine if this discussion were to happen in real life. Could be about anything. Would you seriously like it when people constantly come up with the most superficial reasons to not like something? Like, just people sharing the opinion "I don't like it"? Do you really see any merit in that? If so, I'd love to know what exactly it is. Because personally, I think negative people are annoying as hell, and find no merit in the mere act of sharing what you don't like about something. And I don't see why that needs to be different on a message board. TLOU is a great game that a lot of people love. That doesn't mean that everyone needs to love it, or even like it at all, because even the greatest things have their detractors. If you have some insightful criticism, great, share it, and let's discuss it. But is "plays clunky, enemy AI issues, pacing issues, best part is the beginning, ending is a design failure" that? That genuinely looks like you had 20 seconds while on the shitter, and you had to hurry to get your negative opinion in. Again, is this you wanting to engage in meaningful conversation? Did this really NEED to be said? Bottom line to anything though, what's wrong with having one thread just celebrating the positive things about something?


GamingThread John Bain (Aka Totalbiscuit) has passed away [READ OP]
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Advocating for mob justice and peddling rhetoric associated with hate movements
Bioware eventually got rid of that Manveer Heir guy, so they'll fire him too. I genuinely can't believe people would use the death of another human being as a platform for whatever axes they have to grind. Like, what kind of point are you trying to score by doing this? I just don't get it.
