This was apparently the meme that got Beef demodded in that thread that was deleted:


I guess he was saying "Go ahead and off yourself Etika, nobody gives a shit". What a douche. And then he went and cried on twitter that he lost his "job":
Wow, well at least he was being honest about it being 'miserable'.

Some people complaining about the moderation there see the bigger picture, but some seem to think the sole issue is not being ban happy enough when criticizing someone with mental health issues. Sure, a reminder from the mods that the person they are criticizing has mental health issues and should be given some slack was definitely warranted. But that is just part of the problem. The bigger issues are:

1) When you burn a witch for saying the wrong words, a real human being is actually getting harmed.
2) when you burn a witch for saying the wrong words, sometimes the person burned was never a witch to begin with.
3) trying to burn a witch for saying the wrong words is not something we should be doing period.

I wonder if one thing had something to do with the other one.

Ahhhh.

Well, it can't get any easier for Jason Schreier then. All he has to do is skim some forums and paste together any images people screen grabbed. There should be enough material out there to put together an article.

Get on it Jason.
Jason only cares about forum communities when he can leverage them to promote his book.

ResetEra are banning people for posting links to the ResetEra forum..

Every days a struggle over there. Such a great community they have.

I've been mostly posting on the other side because of activity and because the warframe gaf clan just moved straight there.... but things are getting extreme at resetera. Lately the mods have taken to create "mod guidelines" for threads, and any infringement to the guidelines is met with a ban. As you can imagine the guidelines are often crafted so that the thread ends up saying whatever they want the thread to say.

And of course any wrongthink against the wokeness standards and themes du jour is harshily punished.

Fuck.

A Sonic fan slinging shit at another Sonic fan is nothing new sadly. It is upsetting that the OP of Era's Sonic community, later mod, didn't care about a Sonic fan's mental issues or need. To many he was Etika, but to me he was Iceman, Sonic community fan and contributor. It is a loss for the Sonic community, and he probably did more for Sonic than Beef ever did too.

Honestly, gaf isn't near as active as it used to be. On the flip side, the posts are significantly better and the mods are also significantly better. Era might have a lot more daily posts but the quality is trash and, as you know, the mods are trash. If you can, try to get your warframe clan to move back. You won't have to worry about being banned for wrong speak.

From what I heard, the asylum pays its moderators, so I think he was talking about being demodded in that tweet.
interesting, cos SweetNicole is saying they are volunteer. one of the reasons the mod community failed is that they aren't being paid, she said.

of course, this being a pro-socialist, anti-capitalist website, you would think that mods would do good work out of the goodness of their hearts and not need to be paid. guess all that anti-capitalist claptrap is hot air.

One or 2 more events like this and they are going to have a full blown riot on thier hands over there.

The moderation team seem to have lost all control and thier first reaction is to just shut down all conversation about it.

Seems like déjà vu to me.

Moving the clan back.... yeah that's not gonna happen... But I might get the OK to start a discussion thread here for the clan...

We'll see.

Me and my brother are Sonic fan as well and I must say the actual Sonic fanbase its not much different from Pokemon fanbase. Most of them have those particular mental problems about making a 'human shield' to defend whatever they want to believe.
They are never open to criticism. It is impractical to talk openly about something with them.
Anw, as I posted a long time ago in this thread, celebrate death or make joking about someone death just show how shit this person life are and they believe this will make things better. Simple that.

I dunno. Based on my understanding of the meltdown, their cult was attempting to take over GAF. When Evilore wouldn't have any of it, they pressed the nuclear button and fled to a new forum. The situation is different at ERA.

ERA will hopefully fester and burn for many more months to come, because it will be a beacon to warn away others from their brand of madness. They cannot accept that their Utopia is hypocritical mess. They cannot accept that they were duped twice by the authority figures at the head of the exodus and at the head of the new community (ERA). You will see many more meltdowns and mini-riots before anything happens.

It'll be a really good case study in cognitive dissonance. I'm guessing the 2020 election is when things go off the rails assuming things haven't gone off the rails beforehand. I don't think that group can handle another 2016 result.

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

Them? They are saying it, despite what they did? Ha ha ha.. why, just why? They don't realize it..

After that sad news of Etika's death, I'm noticing ERA losing peoples again. Maybe it's cause of that sensitive thread?

Emily Rogers doesn't care what happens to ERA as she left that place last year

Aaaah now I understand why she went inactive much suddenly. Well, at least she left that ERA place, and I think I'm a bit happy for her to resign, even though you may not like her too much.

You know they are finding it a lot harder to justify that ERA is doing good by oldGAF. It's hilarious absolutely hilarious to think they believe ERA was founded on transparency. I know all too much about the "transparency" that ERA offers.

Problem with resetera is that the smallest perceived slight against trans, homosexuals and the like will result in a ban. However, making light of a situation regarding suicide? Saying you don't care? Spewing vitriol against someone who has a mental issues?

That is A-ok. Oh a mod was in on that too? Nah, we won't ban him and we'll delete his post.

These people will never own up to their own shitty behaviour, what's worse is they don't even recognise their own hypocrisy.

SweetNicole even made fun of this by using a gif, saying that mental illness followed by suicide does not equate to racism or sexual harassment.

He sounds genuinely triggered, its okay my man just because Evil is able to pick up women there's still unlimited waifus out there for you.

This just posted,

Official Staff Communication

As staff we should in fact have paid more attention to and done better with the initial thread, and that's something we've been agonizing over for days. We do usually moderate mental health topics much more vigilantly and that did not happen in this case. We regret that enormously and it's taken a personal toll on all of us.

We do not usually retroactively revisit old threads to issue a lot of bans, but this is an unprecedented situation and we feel it is both appropriate to correct a mistake and also the best way for the community to heal. We will be reviewing the thread again. We have to balance what was known at the time with what is never appropriate, but the bans will not be short.

At the end of the day we are a small team of volunteers trying to keep up with a massive community as best we can. We are members as well and we feel the same things you do.
See, if we ban the people who told him to self harm when his issues where clear that should fix the issue.

Eh not quite, but that has alot to do with it. There were some grey area issues that have been learned from and things have moved on and forward.

im back also, I honestly didn't realise until recently( in the past 2 months some weird hateful threads ) what an absolutely disgusting and hateful place resetera is, in fact i would say it is truely vile, not something i want to be associated with in any way and i asked for my account to be deleted.

This is my last post there - https://www.resetera.com/threads/razer-brazil-just-cut-ties-with-a-female-influencer-because-she-talked-back-to-harassers-read-threadmarks-and-see-staff-post-before-posting.125328/page-6#post-22190482

What happened Etika came after my ban, i never followed the poor man, but i glanced over the awful comments in Era about him and just ignored them as i had no context, but this is absolutely awful, may the poor man RIP.

While the mod team failed to moderate that thread properly I don’t believe just painting a broad brush on all of Era is fruitful. There are sites that went way harder on him compared to Era but why take this moment to specify them? Shouldn’t this thread be remembering Etika and the tragedy that he didn’t get enough help?

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.

RIP
You're really comparing Etika to Anita? And fuck Anita. I don't wish her death, but I wish she would fuck off and stop her ingenuine bs. Stop acting.
