EtcetEraThread We need to have a talk on how we treat sexual assault victims on this site
Red Text We're going to break from procedure here a little bit. Normally, we don't go out of our way to comment on individual bans or lack thereof. However, in this case, we do see that there's a general call for clarification, and by doing so, we can hopefully shed some light on our decision.

EtcetEraThread So my girlfriend just had a screaming fit at me in front of a large group of strangers and I'm kind of ticked off

EtcetEraThread One of my friends proposed we get married for the benefits
Red Text We're going to lock this thread, because the framing is insensitive towards LGBTQ+ relationships. The intent may not have been to insult, but to take advantage of a right that the LGBTQ+ community has fought and fights so hard for is not something we want to host a discussion on.

EtcetEraThread Where is the communication from mods/admins on trans topics?
Red Text Dismissing the concerns of trans people as outrage or cancel culture (or words to that effect) is belittling and demonstrates a disregard for the issues that affect them. If you can't treat the matter with respect it will be regarded as transphobic trolling and you will be moderated accordingly. We encourage dialogue and learning opportunities that are initiated in good faith, but this requires listening to our trans members rather than shouting them down.
Staff have been discussing this internally over the last week or so, with trans staff members leading that discussion and consulting on the specifics. We've so far prepared the following guidelines for threads on trans issues: As always the best way to receive responses to moderation questions and concerns is via the contact form at the bottom of the site or by reaching out to the mod captains directly. The full staff roster can always be found here: Additionally, a discussion thread on the current topic is open and can be found here:

GamingThread ThQ Nordic Gamescom Live Stream Discussion (see staff post)
Red Text In February 2019, THQ Nordic did an AMA on a website then known for doxing, harassment, and alt-right hatred. The head of their marketing department and at least one top executive was involved. THQ Nordic issued an apology but took no other action. That same website later gained worldwide attention after radicalizing multiple mass shooters who targeted ethnic and religious minorities, killing dozens. In August 2019 the site was shunned by service providers and taken off the conventional internet.
