Thanks for the second chance Evilore.

I’ve mostly been lurking Resetera for awhile (because god forbid you risk posting an opinion) but today I really got disgusted by their behaviour to Alec Holowca and contribution to driving a man to suicide. An insane bubble of virtue signallers

I checked out the same thread here and it was a pleasant dose of sanity

Welcome back. You don't know me but I'm considered the coolest guy on GAF these days. Some people refer to me as King, but it's really not necessary :goog_upside_down_face:

Enjoy your stay.

Christ don’t listen to this guy or you will be banned in a day. Worship me instead.

They don’t call me King, they call me Cunth.

Someone made a stealth, "I wanna get the fuck out of here where do I go?" topic.
I actually had someone PM me the same question the other day.

They asked me where they could go because they didn’t feel at home on Gaf or Ree.

I don’t have those answers. They are the 2 biggest gaming focused sites on the web and I’m only here or reddit,

/v/ is good - but you have to understand that you're getting in a forum where there is no filter. you get what you make out of it.

there are times when good discussions can take place on /v/, but that is entirely dependent on what you ask, when you ask, and perhaps if the mods are asleep.

Welcome back Yobo! So tell me now mate, are you left wing? Right wing? Striker? Or you just like passing the ball from the midfield?

I myself is CTRL-Alt-Delete. Glad to have you back

Hi all,

So, it actually took me a while to work up the courage to post this here. But, the current account I have is not the original account I signed up with NeoGAF with. Most of you know me as my current username here, but I was originally Thabass before my account was perma'd. It was justifiably perma'd, at least at the time I thought it was, but I wanted to clear the air since it's been on the back of my mind for a while now.

I'm not asking for the account to be unbanned or anything, but I felt that it was important to get it off my chest. Hell, I'm half expecting to be banned for making this post lol

So yeah, pretty random post, I know.

What was the reason?
I said something to the effect of the person who created political correctness should be lynched or something to that effect. When I made the post, I immediately regretted it and tried to edit. But it was too late. It was caught by someone and quoted and soon I was banned.

Everyone can get heated and cross a line sometimes. You took it back immediately, understandable. Looks like besada was eager to move in for the kill on this one. I've merged your old account into your current one so that you get your post history and achievements.

Much appreciated for the honesty man. You felt like you were fooling us and you decided to step up and talk about it. Hats off to you my man and we’re glad to have you here with us. Nobody wants you banned for being honest, we appreciate and respect this.

Let's give a warm welcome back to Y Yoboman , a veteran gaffer permed by one of our bad apple ex-mods for mildly questioning militant feminism's hatred of white men in a Mumei thread way back in 2011.
I just don’t get it, how angry and spiteful do you have to be to look at that post and go “yikes, that one liner is such a severe infraction that we better banish this long contributing member forever from our community”

Like, what has to happen to a human being in order to become like that mean?

At a certain point people became disposable. They had a long lineup waiting at the gate so for everyone they frivolously banned 2 or 3 more juniors would take their place and those juniors would be easier to indoctrinate, or they could be banned for no reason.

It was a numbers game, playing the odds.

I don’t believe there was any actual human cost thought involved, for some of the old mods.

I see. Thanks for being honest about it, We've all said regrettable things before.

You’ve been here long enough to know how much of a cunts ex-GAF mods were. They had beef with me because I always was against them until one day I got a perma ban

You were permed? I didn’t know that. I thought you just followed them to Ree then got sick of it and came back.

Yeah I was. I didn’t actually follow them to Ree, I followed my cousins because we were together in everything. Couldn’t stand it at all. The majority ditched Ree and only one stayed there

Then you abused him until he called out the other guy using your avatar.

Charlequin quietly reshaped the community at every opportunity with bans like these, mainly on gaming side. He was the main guy banning everyone for wrongthink in the Anita threads et al. Unlike besada, he never mentioned his ideological leanings though, and in discussions and logging he always found other reasons for his bans that would seem legitimate on the surface. Nefarious guy.
