Do people really exist that are upset over his "Peace and quiet" joke? If so, seek help. Lots and lots of help. There's plenty to despise him over, but that tweet isn't one of them.

Basically will follow the format of Colin Was Right, a piece he did on KF that was not unlike The Jimquisition.

I still wish he and Greg could reconcile and bring back PS XOXO, but that ship has sailed, sadly, and weíre worse off for it.

I guess Colin was also joking when he used Asians as a race to claim racism doesn't exist, thereby insinuating that other minorities just don't work hard.

Yeah... all just a joke.

Arrogant because of the way he broke down game industry stuff in CWR? Or arrogant because of the name?

Because I believe the latter just stemmed from a long running KF inside joke. Otherwise, it would seem hypocritical considering GAF goes gaga over Jim Sterling with his "Thank God for me" schtick.

My suspicion is that yes, a slim majority of the population might actually get upset over a lazy, sexist joke, particularly when immediately backed up with the statement that if you don't find it funny then "you're a humorless [sack] of shit." As a general rule I don't like being called a sack of shit, and that doesn't seem unusually sensitive.

But I will agree that there's plenty of other things to dislike him over.

I think he was suggesting that perhaps not all racial disparities are inherently racist. I don't think that necessarily implies anything other than the possibility of other factors existing.

Whatever happened to constructive discourse, and respecting each other's opinions? Today, outrage and character assassination, with a blind eye to nuance or proportion, is considered to be productive.

Sure, it was a lazy joke but thinking more than half of the people who read it got upset is a little absurd.

Ya I think this format is by far the best for him. PSILY was at it's worst when he was trying to talk about newly released games that just didn't interest him. Much more enjoyable when he talks about the parts of the hobby and industry that he does find interesting.

Pretty sure the vast vast majority of industry people that were here on gaf have jumped ship from this place for the new one. At least all the ones Iíve talked to have. I really doubt that community is the problem. Besides, if Iím not mistaken Colinís beef with this place was over his right wing politics. Most developers and other insiders definitely have a left wing skew to their politics. People who avoid this place do so for different reasons then Colin. At least generally speaking.

I definitely find it interesting that this thread seems far more receptive to him than in the past. I wonder if politics is the reason?

Upset is a pretty low bar to clear, particularly considering the timing of the joke and his connected insult to people who didn't find it funny. I'm not sure if that ever goes over well.

I just don't see how people who let a shitty and tame joke like that upset them are able to function in society. It's the type of playful joke my parents would toss at each other then both laugh about afterwards.

Can you blame him? A lot of people on the old version of Gaf attacked him for making a silly joke.

It wasn't a silly joke, it still is a shitty joke that he deserved every piece of criticism he gets. I can blame him because instead of debating, he pushes his fans to jump on anyone who disagrees. This says alot about this forum when the people left on here are defending him.

Your parents presumably have a very different relationship than Colin X Random People on the Internet do. (Which is also why his wife defense was so disingenuous.) Everybody with an ounce of sense is going to speak differently with friends and family than they will total strangers. It's all about context.

Sorry to break it to you friend, but it is impossible to live in a world of absolutes. I would love to see you share anything about Colin's history that makes him worthy of such a title. I don't even require a subjective absolute; just any evidence to back up this supposed history of unforgivable misdeeds.

At some point it seems Patreon stopped showing the exact amount being pledged so probably only Colin knows. 4570 patreons right now so at least $4570 if everybody contributed the lowest tier. Probably dipped a lot since CLS is not really doing anything that hasn't already been done better by other youtube channels led by people with relevant experience and education beyond it just being a hobby. Good for him to return to podcasting and gaming content which is where he built his fanbase for the last decade plus and where his expertise really lies.

It's true why would we be posting on the internet if we didn't want to talk about what we want where we want. If I wanted to talk in a censored place I'd move myself to North Korea.

Free Speech isn't something I am going to be letting someone take from me, just because the topic is controversial.

With this kind of article this makes it way more plausible but people on the internet always miss context and try to build their view like its best fiting for their own ideology. Again you can totally disagree with him but people on the internet try to destroy peoples life for not agreeing. And yes you can ssay the tweet was sexist. You can still ay it was funny but again it is not worth to destroy someones life because of it.
