EtcetEraThread ResetEra is hostile to anyone who isn't center-right and has been driving many great users away because of this
Reason User banned (permanent): Inflammatory attempt to rile up community; ignoring staff guidelines.
A specter is haunting ResetEra -- the specter of leftism. All the powers of ResetEra have entered into a holy alliance to exorcise this specter. As anyone who reads ResetEra knows, this is a fairly center-right liberal leaning forum. Political threads frequently get dominated by these members, many of whom are given protected status by mods, and dissenters are attacked relentlessly. In spite of this, the forum has had a great selection of leftists in the past who were willingly to wade into these threads and argue that a better world is possible if only we would fight for it. Over the past 3 years, however, many of these people have been driven off the site, many of them LGBTQ, disabled and POC, either by bannings (almost always disproportionate to liberals in the same discussions received) or by simply getting fed up by constantly being talked down to and demeaned by the bougie, largely white, PoliEra crowd. So many great comrades are gone from this site while the people who mocked and bullied them remain here, protected by mods whose attitude towards policing political threads seems best summed up as "the beatings will continue morale improves." This situation has been rapidly deteriorating recently with any thread concerning Biden filled with liberals attacking any justified criticism of him, and even threads where no criticism exists filled with subtweeting of leftists for not posting in every thread about Biden. However, all of that pales in comparison to the shitshow that was the . It began with Oheao responding to Biden's plan to involve foreign policy and punish countries which were unfriendly towards LGBTQ people by wondering if this would apply to Saudia Arabia. He received dozens of angry replies from liberals and was banned for "thread derailment" despite being a direct response to a line in the OP. Several other leftists were banned over the course of the thread, most alarmingly, psychoward, who is bi, was banned for defending his views, while received only a warning for claiming that bi men were not LGBTQ enough. To add insult to injury, in the claimed " Do not throw LGBTQs or other minorities under the bus, especially that of fellow members." while the staff had just banned an LGBTQ member and protected those who threw him under the bus. And you people wonder why so many great members who aren't banned have abandoned this website. by to discuss the insulting way in which the left are constantly whitewashed despite their diversity was immediately locked with no room for discussion. Enough is enough. I'm sure you'll ban me for this. It doesn't matter. For I'm just a man. And there will always be another KuwabaraTheMan. Another Oheao. Another Azuran. Another Desparadina. Another Psychoward. Because individually we are but people, but collectively we are a movement. And our movement can't be banned.

GamingThread Two Riot Employees "Leave" Under "Complicated Circumstances" After PAX Session Excluding Men.
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Junior phase account arguing in bad faith over a series of posts; history of bigotry
I think it's okay for Riot to fire someone who insults their customer base and makes them look unprofessional, yes. But your attempt to misrepresent what I said has been noted. I would like to have a productive and civil discourse on this, but I feel that the moderation policy on this forum stifles a lot of real discussion, as opinions going against the prevailing wind are silenced and shunned from the forums. This is then followed by people bleating 'the GGers win again!' at each other, like preaching to the choir, because they already threw away their chance to change someone's mind and instead just pushed them away for disagreeing. With that said, I'll take the risk and share my full thoughts on the issue. Should I catch a ban for it, it will only serve to prove my point. Making this forum a safe space for people who only agree with each other will never result in a change amongst the majority of people who do not frequent this forum. I feel that the event itself had good intentions (increasing female/NB representation in the industry) but bad execution. If Riot wanted to make an panel that was open only to women/NB, specifically for women/NB, there would be no problem at all. The initial uproar stems from the fact that men attending PAX, who paid the same ticket price and should have the same access as everyone else, were losing access to presentations that they would be interested in. If you want to show the content to everyone, but have a specific room where women/NB can raise their concerns and receive feedback on resumes, hear women/NB oriented talks, then fine. But the list of talks on the women/NB only timeslot was in fact fairly generalised. The negative work environment within Riot was uncovered, and Riot responded by withdrawing access from men who had nothing to do with the internal structure or environment of Riot. Understandably in my opinion, these men felt that this was unfair (but according to a lot of people on this forum, it's okay because they're men and men already dominate the industry, so this was just a way of somewhat tipping the scales in the other direction, even if the specific men who were losing out from this action had nothing to do with the imbalance anyway.) As for what DZK said. I think it's pretty mild and I have thick skin so even as a man who disagrees, I'm not offended by it. But I think the point still stands - you represent your company and you can't insult your customers like he did. That's all there is to it. I think trying to represent who disagrees as a 'misogynist' or a 'GGer' is disingenuous and the 'if you're not with us, you're against us' mentality on this forum is stronger than George W Bush.

Reason User banned (5 days) for downplaying the bigotry in Islamophobia and inflammatory derailment
I have watched the video and read the article, and while the man in the wheelchair was an ass, I didn't hear anything racist (unless I missed it). Somewhat on topic, I am glad that this kind of clothing is getting banned in more and more parts of Europe. This encapsulation has no place in a free and open society where men and women are equals. By wearing this, you are walking around with a permanent wall in front of you that anonymizes you and prevents normal human interaction with the rest of society, completely excluding yourself. It is also sexist, because men don't have to wear it, meaning it goes against the principle of gender equality.

EtcetEraThread Jussie Smollett Breaks His Silence After Vicious Attack: 'I'm OK'
Reason User Banned (Permanent): Continuous thread derailment with hostility towards staff. History of severe infractions.
I hope this thread has generated a good long discussion and a shitload of introspection and consideration from the moderation team regarding the standards and quality of moderation on this forum. Instead of just over-reacting and banning dissenting opinions, maybe there should have been an attempt to engage with people to try to understand why they thought the whole story was fishy (which it is now well beyond any reasonable doubt). Instead, this whole thing was turned into a massive race/culture war where those with power abused it to shut out those they didn't agree with and then got egg all over their faces when all of the doubts people had initially were shown to be legitimate and not just borne out of "white privilege" or whatever buzzword insult was being thrown around. I couldn't give three fucking shits about this guy and before this thread I didn't even know who he was. I certainly don't give a shit about whether he set this whole thing up or not and am only here because this episode is a perfect illustration of what is wrong with this place. ... ... ... Who am I kidding? Introspection? Yeah right! It's just easier to ban people and bury your heads in the sand.

EtcetEraThread Why is fascism spreading across the world in the 2010s?
Reason User Banned (Permanent): Rationalising facism, junior account
I don't see anything fascist about Trump or Bolsonaro. Fascism was an ideology which advocated that everything should go to the state. Libertarian governments like these propose the opposite. They want to diminish the size of the state and give more economical freedom to people. Besides, it's pretty pathetic to label someone you don't like with a name that doesn't even means what you're trying to say. The way I see it, the world nowadays is taking a turn for so much leftism that is unbearable. It's everywhere, from politics to cinema, videogames, music, etc. It's refreshing to have a more conservative government sometimes.

I honestly have a lot of difficulties to understand the criticisms to the lack of a black woman in Overwatch. I mean: if the game would have included only white females characters I would have perfectly understood it but the roaster presents female characters from a lot of different countries that are not tipically represented in videogames. Like Egypt, India, Mexico... I mean, this is not common at all and in general I think that the game has one of the wider ethnic cast of characters. Probably it's because I'm european and I can't understand what exactly is the problem with the lack of black women in the game. Probably it's an USA-only problem? I don't know...

Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Dismissing and tone policing concerns regarding transphobia. Account still in junior phase.
I am black, I am fat, I am also Christian. I have heard racist jokes and racist comments - Some I am outraged about and some I just shake my head and move on. I have played many games that have had in racial stereotypes and sit through many movies that dont represent black people well. Being overweight - people have had to tolerate jokes and comments for most of their lives. Thank the Lord for women like Beyonce and Jlo that open the door for women to have curves and now for social media to empower much more to combat against body shaming - but guess what, it still happens. I like Bill Maher but guess what, he takes pleasure in dissing persons of faith (unless their his friends) as lost or mentally inferior but I still watch many of his shows because I like his comedy and views on other subjects. What I learned from this situation is that the meme / comment is a much more derogatory thing than I ever knew but at the same time please realize the context. This wasnt a core part or philiosophy in the game, the devs didnt come out and state a preference for a certain way of life etc etc. If you are going to say the sky is falling for every little thing then when major things happen are the masses going to believe you? This is the situation now with the backlash on political correctness and the popular outrage action against most things outside of the liberal viewpoint. You may have a point but claiming that people should be fired and apologies should be to a certain stard for every incident turns off many people. Again please take this as an observation from someone who is a bit older, living in a part of the world that is a fair bit more conservative and speak with persons who dont necessarily see these situations as cut and dry. I am all for not offending and to be as inclusive as possible but I realize that my upbringing did give me some biases I have to unlearn and that others may not care to hold those viewpoints - does that mean they should lose their livelihood or should have to always speak in a PC bubble so all can purchase their content with a clear conscience??? I dont know - life here on this planet isnt that easy.
