It is shit. Not worth the paper it is printed on. As I already stated multiple times before.
OK thanks, then it does not sound like it's worth my time. Sometimes a "it's shit" may turn into "maybe it's fine for you" if given information about the person's preferences (in this case, that I really like science fiction), which is just why I asked (again).

Unedited screenshots. Why is this type of racism becoming mainstream?

If you ever wanted to see what real racism is, it's not building walls and wanting to restrict immigration. It's watching one side call you the N-word while acting like they're better than you.



Also, if you paid attention, my findings include both White Europeans and Japanese in the mix. And yet the non-white Japanese are still portrayed as being "Nazis/White Supremacists" by Resetera.

So do people still read my posts and actually believe I am arguing for any White supremacy, when clearly I am also worried about other non-white nations being forced to open their borders?

Slayven has been observed as having keyboard issues or it's because he types faster than he thinks.

Also Hydro has had a lot of bad ERA takes, not as bad as Enzom and RedMercury or Nepenthe though who could be one and the same entity.

The kind of racism they perpetuate is cum closet racism.
I’m shocked Cerium looks like some beta neckbeard. Never would’ve guessed.
I am shocked that out of all The Names he is one of the more normal folks.

Well, except for the whole gay bashing thing, which through Googol ERA Translate would be pure bigotry punishable by a 2 week ban.

Not that ERA will ever allow you to post that stuff there though. That's one to put into the deafening pot of silence.
I only wish, wish someone take those buffoons and send them with an 1-way ticket to Africa, so they could enjoy their diversity.
And have Africa deal with it? You know who is from Africa? Elon Musk. You want him to deal with Ree?

Looks like the new mods at KiA are not as opinion friendly as first thought. Kicking off over there. Someone with an account needs to show them GaF is back and championing free speech and non agenda moderation practises. Who would have thought this reversal 18 months ago :messenger_open_mouth:

I think they advertised/chose new mods. New mods came in. They held a poll about self posts - which was contentious because the poll was already held a while back. Community voted in unity on the issue and the new mods decided to outlaw them anyway. The decision was made and the post unstickied before the week began on Monday. Hence people now talking about KiA2 because:

I don't have an overly strong opinion about the KiA thing but I do think it's an annoying Reddit thing when every single thread has to be a link to elsewhere.

Then you have to purposely click on the comments and search out the OP's comment that explains the context of the thread. Those explanation posts are often not the first/top post.

So you have to get through 8 shitty attempts at puns upvoted by a bunch of morons to find out what the OP intended with the thread. It is one of the things I hate about the Reddit layout in the first place.

Give them the option of 1way or return tickets.
I'd bet dollars to donuts that every single one of them would choose the return tickets, cos they're spineless blowhards who won't back up their childish perspectives.

Remember after Hillary lost the 2016 election, they all threatened to move to Canada?

Somehow, they collectively forgot Mexico exists, but they conveniently suck Mexico's dick when it comes to building walls.

I can’t imagine how overrun my country would be with shitty extremest Americans if they had all had their way.

We’d have to build the wall, and that wouldn’t be easy buddy.

Thankfully none of them have any skills we need, so they are stuck back in the USA, if only they spent less time being outraged, and more time learning real life valuable skills.

I mentioned this on Discord last week. I am not sure if this is the place to best mention it on this forum since it's about our forum here.

I've noticed over the past few months the poltiics forum tends to get a lot of new accounts posting that never post outside of the politics forum. A lot of these posters are obviously just there to try and cause trouble and have really low quality posts. I am a little curious as to why someone would sign up for a gaming forum and only ever post political stuff. I'd rather discuss poltics with other gamers and regular members here rather then obnoxious trolls. Has anyone considered putting a post limit and account age limit on Politics? Say something like must be a member for at least one month and have 200 posts for example?

This would not matter for someone like Nobody_Important.

On a much smaller scale you are also seeing users now trying the dead-debated MS good, Sony GAF bad thing or make shitty questionnaires in off-topic that always backfire. Lastly, there are also older users coming back looking for their gotcha! moment.

Too bad that these NeoRee members aren't doing that Gotcha! when it comes to Cerium..

I think I brought this up in the past too. I do think it would make the politics a little bit better. Yeah, some people will use their old accounts to troll, but they will be dealt with just like they are now. I know a few other forums have a time restriction on their off-topic/politics sections (Codex has 12 months, although they did that because people were doxxing themselves). Obviously 12 months is a bit much and it works for Codex because they focus on a small niche.
they all secretly want to live in japan and fuck animus
A noble goal but they're going at it in a completely wrong way.

Nope, you can mention them as you see fit. The only reason they have that rule over there is to stop people discussing why they changed forums in the first place. Since the narrative that sparked the whole thing was proven as some blown up bs and all.

Did the information on the alleged incident ever change? Wasn't it he-says-she-says from the beginning?

Iirc, the 2 sides didn't agree on the event but did agree (thru second interview?) how everything ended.

When it was brought up and confirmed that there was a relationship after the alleged event, half the believers decided that it's exactly how a "battered woman" would act. Same as with Hardwick. That a battered woman would sing the praises of the alleged abuser. A battered woman would decide to fuck the alleged abuser.

The other half decided it wasn't about that, but rather how it was handled.

But the whole was just unwilling to admit that perhaps they didn't handle themselves properly. We as humans have a hard time admitting when we are wrong.

*Halfs are a guess. Can't know exactly what the percentages were*

There was no misconduct, there was no intimidation. I don't creep on women or intimidate women. Everything was 100% consensual, she came with on multiple trips where we were intimate, I soured on the situation some time later in LA so I walked and broke off contact with her. She attempted to reconnect a while later but I didn't want any further drama in my life so I blocked her, no hard feelings so far as I knew, I just didn't want to continue after that stressful garbage in LA with her friends. Fast forward to years later and she makes up a sick fantasy to suit whatever personal agenda, I don't know. Note that she had just broken up with her BF, which prompted our NOLA trip, very contrary to her account of events, but he worked for her production company and they were close so I can only speculate that she probably wanted to retcon the whole situation to absolve herself of personal responsibility for getting involved with me. I dunno, she's unstable and I can't speak to her motives for the defamation. It was too fucked up for me to fathom anyone being willing to do at the height of the #metoo witch hunt so I couldn't wrap my head around it very well and just wanted to handle it appropriately in private if possible and not hand a bunch of personal info involving multiple parties to an angry mob. She had also just gotten involved with my ex-gf days before writing the Facebook post, I was told, which made me really uncomfortable on top of everything else.

I have no difficulty admitting to wrongdoing or taking responsibility for my actions. There was no sexual misconduct or intimidation of any kind with her at any point, I was a pretty damn sweet guy to her all around, both when we were just friends and otherwise, which made the whole thing that much more hurtful.

It's still pretty crazy to me that the site split happened because of sexual misconduct allegations. I was lurking when it went down and it was insane to me that people were committing account suicide in such large numbers because the big boss man was accused of something.

I really don't understand why members on the board would get so emotional about it.

I remember posting on VGChartz how I don't give a damn what the site owner does or what his image is, if it doesn't affect me or the board.

This site at the time had a hissy fit every week about something. It's just this time they couldn't get their mod buddies to ban them.

But every week it was something. And I am probably being generous saying weekly. It was every 48 hours. Their hobby was outrage. They were bullies who thought they were anti-bully.

But it was always some kind of outrage, followed by targeting anyone who didn't express the outrage. If you expressed you didn't think it was that serious, they'd follow you around until they could get you banned.

Oh I didn’t mean all all Americans, just to clarify. Every time I’ve been in the US I’ve met nothing but nice and pleasant people. It’s the ones that were crying and stomping their feet when Trump won that I don’t want to see up here. (In other words the average Resetera user.)

Plus if you look some of the most extreme from there are already living up here.

I appreciate the repeated explanation, though I did not want to devalue your previous explanation; I was just suprised someone said that it has become clear the allegations are wrong, because even before Resetera existed this view basically was known. I feel overall it is none of anyone's business outside of yours and the alleged victim's what has happened between you two (well and had she decided to bring it to the courts, then the people involved in the legal system). But for those who do / did feel it is their business and who take a strong stance to believe the alleged victim if no definite proof to the contrary exists, even a more distanced explanation of your pov does not change a thing. Which is what I meant by asking whether any new developments happened in that regard, which could arguably only be one of three things: A legal case about it, her admitting that it were false allegations pr you admitting that her allegations were correct.

She has nothing to take to court and nothing to stand on whatsoever, as all the material evidence directly contradicts her account. I prepared a defamation case and assembled said evidence, but ended up not filing as it took a month or so to put together and all the damage had been done at that point, legal counsel found that per state law the statement had already been considered retracted when she deleted it and couldn't be taken further with an injunction against future speech, and the only available avenue remaining was to claim monetary damages from her which I chose not to pursue.

Beyond that, it's time to move on. It's a contradictory, nonsensical story, with no corroboration or evidence or charges levied, that was used as an excuse for a smear campaign by the press and a power play by bad actors here, with no regard to the truth one way or another.

Bring it up again in any context and you're done here, Yoshi. Thanks.

It didn't happen over just that only, but the whole story was the proverbial final nail in the coffin for a lot of members. How that played out was frankly just disgusting. Completely normal Joe's turning into Vulgar Trolls posting porn, gore, gore porn and cum closets all together.

It was a worser kind of suicide than the Japanese Kamikazes, because atleast the Kamikaze's did theirs with a sense of honor, for the fatherland and for the greater good. These users cyanided themselves for no reason but a blanket statement.

Little did anyone know that the whole split up was a prepared thing and preparations were done in advance. It was by no means a spontaneous thing.

Since the split two schools of thought exist. Those that think Tyler is not Malkaveli a sexual deviant and those who have set sail since. Group A (ERA) considers Group B (GAF) accomplice because they set sail and has tried to move on. Group A, as it turns out, is more and more becoming OldGAF by the minute. And unlike ERA, we aren't the only one's thinking this, its most of the common gaming hemisphere that attends this school of thought.

I like to compare both GAF and ERA as the Voyager 2 and New Horizons probes: We both go in different directions, except we (Voyager 2) explore interstellar space, and New Horizons is newer, launched faster and later and has the idea of seeking ''New Horizons'', but it has no long term goal, unlike Voyager 2.

Its this history that sets Voyager 2 (GAF) apart from New Horizons (ERA). But hey, atleast they snapped Pluto and in typical ERA fashion, the planet even looked like Disney's Pluto, so its completely SJW friendly. ;)

Hopefully this is a good enough summary.

I have the feeling that some people wanted to hijack the forum but they failed. And now we have REEEEEE.
And MetaCouncil. That's right, even people from Reee got tired of the Ree and made yet another site.

She has nothing to take to court and nothing to stand on whatsoever, as all the material evidence directly contradicts her account. I prepared a defamation case and assembled said evidence, but ended up not filing as it took a month or so to put together and all the damage had been done at that point, legal counsel found that per state law the statement had already been considered retracted when she deleted it and couldn't be taken further with an injunction against future speech, and the only available avenue remaining was to claim monetary damages from her which I chose not to pursue.
Right. I think that settles the story then. If GAF ever gets a wiki (And this is not a request for one!) then posts like these are for the archives.

And if you want to satirize it: Just say: ''Its all his fault'' per your biography here. Though i am sure not many will get that reference. :p

EDIT:
Beyond that, it's time to move on.
Well, you read my mind then and there Tyler. :messenger_winking:

If you have hard evidence to that effect, by all means.
I could do a lengthy thing (Because i wouldn't be claiming this otherwise and i have seen screendumps that suggest OldGAF staff did a part in the form ups, like Besada) but @Blam could tell more i think since he was there in the start.

And i mean, if you think about this, its also logical. An exodus of this kind simply does not generate that kind of momentum over one story.

I am not sure if this thread has to be the working ground for that though, nor do i know how much information you have. Perhaps that's more something for a PM, if any of that still has (legal) merit for you, that is.

Other than that i would share your sentiment to move on and your posts and my semi-metaphorical summary are good enough for everyone.

Yes, it has legal relevance.
Well Blam was there from the start, so that's one. And i do know that this stuff was a prepared thing (I remember this in a blurry but vivid sense, as in, i know that this was behind the scenes but 100% certainty i cannot have) but most references concern OldGAF staff and the like.

I think this needs a private channel with Blam if needed, like a PM or a Discord. Especially when it has legal matters. Sadly i never took to task of documenting this stuff hence that (as of this moment) i am trying to trace back things. Atleast i am rather well on that.

Either way, in order to not derail this any further, take this to a private channel of choice and with Blam along with it. Perhaps some remaining holes can be filled.

I think that everything that happened to you was BS, and I stated that from the get.
When you say the '#Metoo witch hunt', are you specifically referring to what happened to you, or has that situation led you to to consider the whole movement a problem?
Even though some innocent men have been fucked with, it's taken down some awful people, so I've still got to be supportive (with open eyes).

It is better that ten guilty persons escape than that one innocent suffer.
