RIP.



27 pages of shitting on him for having mental health problems and making nasty memes at his expense, mod endorsed:

It's legitimately fucking disgusting that people on ERA thought he was doing this for attention. I can already see a lot of people that were clamoring for people to help him on that thread on their new one asking for people to get permabanned or banned for trashing him before. I pray they do. Shits fucked up.

As long as nobody is trashin ERA right? Then it's okay.

Reason why I so often want to burn the so called gaming community to the ground.

So much energy spent everyday to make other people feel bad about liking a game or a console or a social media personality. So much constant negativity and vitriol and after years upon years of this people have the audacity to attach the word “community” to their efforts. If there is a greater bastardization of a term I’m not aware of it.

What community? You mean the one that jumps at every opportunity to practice in the politics of personal destruction? You mean the one that believes it has some holy consumer right to threaten and harass creators instead of just rationally deciding not to purchase whatever is being made if it doesn’t fit their tastes?

Just imagine if you had a community of people that spent the majority of its time squadding up to have fun playing video games instead of meeting up to have hate-filled podcasts? One focused on the love the hobby itself?

Not even angry right now although I should be. Just so fucking exasperated.

RIP Etika.

Rather then address the issue and ban the assholes they will clean things up and sweep it under the rug. Then the only ones banned will be the ones that bring up their hypocrisy.

The thread will get reopened with a note on it that says anyone who talks back will be banned.

I feel that Era is one of the premiere catalysts of internet outrage culture that has gone way too far...but I don't know if we can really say things like they contributed to Etika's depression and suicide. We have no evidence that he read that thread or even the forum, right? Etika did mention "social media" but that is usually reserved more for Twitter and Facebook than message boards.

As for Etika, my prayers are with his family and friends. I've seen a few of his fun reaction videos in the past and he seemed like a genuinely excited, hyped-up guy that helped others get some excitement from games as well. He will be missed.

Fuck me guys our community is not morally superior than that of resetera, nor being "morally superior" is a worthy goal. What if Anita ends her life tomorrow, would we celebrate?

Just be human, live from experience, and be happy to be a part of whatever this is.

No, I refuse to be called equals to a website that encourages cryptic death threats and other criminal activity.

Pretty sure i haven’t seen anybody here wishing any harm, self-inflicted or otherwise, on Anita. Era members and mods were actively hoping Etika would harm himself and are now scrambling to scrub the evidence. I’ve got no problem claiming moral superiority over those chodes.
Really no one wanted to see Etika harm himself. Some at Era were upset with the "stunt" (of course now they were proved to be serious) Etika did.
Not saying that Era thread is not a embarrassing joke, but people do downplay the seriousness of mental health and it is not limited to Era.
Please don't forget how Era was born, and we should just try to make every forum a better place instead of feeling good against each other.

It is one thing to kick a man while he’s down, Reset users do scummy shit like that all the time. But to turn arond when he’s dead and act like you always cared about him is some subhuman filth shit. There are some people who called him a piece of shit in the new thread saying “I can’t the believe people who lacked empathy for this man!” The exact same fucking people.

And then you have scumfucks like RockmanBN openly wishing that Etika would kill himself.

I know some people on this forum are also regulars on ResetEra. Not sure why you frequent that hellsite, but if you do, remember these names. These people have shown themselves to be two-faced, going with whatever opinion is popular at a given moment so they can feel like they’re a part of something. These are the same people that will proselytize to you about “toxic gamer culture”. They have revealed the man behind the curtain, showing their hypocrisy for all to see.

Remember their names.

Looks like Era reopened the thread after "reviewing reports".

They've posted this big "Official Staff Communication" guideline post regarding not harassing people and included suicide hotlines.

Funny how there hasn't been any more posts making fun of Etika on Era since.

Again, the gaming media isn't interested in reporting on "toxic gaming culture" when it comes out of RE.

this industry is a joke.

not very familiar with the streamer, but damn, suicide/depression is a beast. its sad to see him speak the way he does in that final video, feeling like there is no way out and you've gone and ruined the rest of your life up. pushed too many people away. cyber bullying is scary shit, makes me worry as a parent.

Cerium responded on Ree:
"This tragedy is not an opportunity for drama, it is not entertainment, nor is it an occasion to organize harassment against people who most likely already feel terrible about what has happened here. "

Please don't harrass the harrassers - they have feelings too, ya know?
"Please don't call out my website for being a den of hypocrisy and hatred. Look! We care about mental health now! Now keep moving bitches."

No Cerium, its an opportunity for reflection on maybe how hounding people for every word they say may in fact have dire consequences down the line. Your site spews hatred and intolerance, sort it the fuck out.

RIP Etika. Sad to see a young man go out like that.

That’s the last I’ll say about Era and its denizens here.
I follow where the gaming news are, and Era is where they are at right now. It doesn't mean I approve the community over everything it does.
I didn't read every post in that thread cuz it was disgusting so of course I missed some real dipshit there. , And many felt the same over at Era.
You don't need to lump thousands of people into one group and condemn it all together.

The few who are making apologizes for the site are saying “Assholes are everywhere on the internet, ResetEra is no different”

So the entire conceit of that site being the morally superior place is just openly being denied repeatedly. It’s a shithole just like everywhere else and even defenders are admitting this

Resetera made a thread about it. Then this shit came out about a mod.


Now the thread is closed. They don't want to talk about how they can be POS but want to talk about everyone else who doesn't share their echo chamber opinions.
Holy fucking shit that's a mod. This image should be shared around everywhere.

That's a good point about the witch hunt. I got into it and joined in with a post above.

I think they all learned their lesson. The fact Era has to lock and reopen threads, mods/people deleting posts, big Official Statement, and RE people even shit in their own forum calling it out (some guy got a thread insta-banned calling out hypocrisy), it shows you got a thread with a bunch of people covering tracks and have to corral the mob mentality.

Although some RE people won't give a shit, I think there's enough daily users there who realize the shitiness of the Etika situation and have a sense of shame with what happened.

Likely won't change anything overall, but at least for one day (or a few), I think the overall community there knows what transpired, and people ragging on him didn't help.

You know.. Etika said alot of dumb things and made alot of mistakes. I am in no way defending Resetera but when your online and say those remarks or racist words he said even if playing around then the heat will come at you regardless of if you meant it or not. Now in no way does that warrant people calling for his death or to laugh at his suicide video. The ones who mocked him took it to far when all you have to do is just not follow the guy. I honestly started watching his vids through his Jojo Youtube vids and I instantly became a fan. I wont say I was a super fan but I honestly thought he was a nice guy just from judging his interactions with others and what others had to say about him.

When he started having his breakdown and said all those things on twitter I was angry but then I was like well shit what would push a guy to say those things when he seems to have everything going for him. I took a step back and was like damn. I feel sorry for this guy as I truly believe he had a mental illness/depression etc. I honestly felt sorry for the guy after that and I was rooting for him to just somehow get through this"phase" and be back and make more videos.

When I heard the news today I felt bad not for him only but for his friends and loved ones. I cant imagine the grief they must feel and I hope those that made fun of or mocked him at least see that they should not attack or belittle someone when they are at a low point in their lives and make an effort to become a better person (easier said than done I know).

RIP Etika you were a fun guy and its sad to see anyone take their own lives. I dont know if anyone could have helped at that point but damn. I am really at a loss of words at the moment and just wish the man and his loved one Peace, Forgiveness and Love.
Highly disagree.
If people want to say f*g or n*gger, they should be able to. No matter what.

Thing is, if you say stuff like that, you need to be ready to face possible reactions/consequences. That Etika clearly couldn't deal with it.

At the same time, that ResetEra are the biggest hypocrites in the gaming industry and need to f*ck off for getting so butthurt over a couple of words that they had to go that far.
That's as no-life as it gets.
The fact that apparently some users over there show how two-faced they are, is making it very clear how toxic and dangerous the PC/SJW community is.

I don't know who this Etika guy is, nor do I usually care about these kind of news stories, but rip. Sad that a bunch of moralistic neckbeards most likely had a key-role in the suicide of a young guy.

You know whats going on now?

Mod made a statement demanding people to stop the drama. By "drama", they meant not discussing about the mental illness, people bullying the issues and mod behaviour.

Some members are now being banned because they're still pointing fingers mods because they want to shut down anything related to bad moderation. Members are still calling them for those terrible actions.

Have to say, I'm impressed that people are finally not afraid being banned and demanding answers from mods.

This is one of the shut down threads. Proposing if they have an empathy problem. The very first post blames Americans lol. Wow yeah you do have an empathy problem if you can’t go a single post without blaming the lack of empathy on other people. Lol.
