I think it's time to take a break from GAF. That Smash harrassment thread has really disappointed me. A lot of people I genuinely thought were cool showed a side of them i didn't know existed. The majority of people I talk to on GAF usually post in here, so I figured I'd say my peace here. Love you guys ♥
Just have to make use of the ignore user and thread feature to hide the trash. Gaming is at least enjoyable here with light use of those features where Era wasn’t for me even with extremely heavy usage.

That thread is a dumpster fire though.
It totally is. I threw some people on ignore, reported one particularly bad post and then ignored the thread.

I don’t want anything near old Gaf or current Era moderation with crazy bannings and thread closings by any stretch. But there’s always going to be dumpster fires on forums as there are a lot of shitty people out there and especially a lot of shitty people online and especially a lot of shitty people in the online gaming community.

Best you can do is not engage with it, report particularly bad posts and let the staff deal with them and ignore users who’s crap you don’t want to see and dumpster fire threads. Then focus on all the quality threads and members you enjoy.

So the 4th of July thread has come early on Resetera.

Warning: Prepare to cringe yourself at the responses.







The people of Reset have spoken!
America sucks, it's nazi, it's full of concentration camps, yet no one wants to leave for some reason!
Hey, man. I'm up for an exchange. I'll go to the US and they come to my country. See how much time it will take until they start crawling back. I'm sure they'll love all the inclusion the rest of the world has to offer. :messenger_kissing_smiling:

Don't worry about the sidetracking. You did nothing wrong. It's also not the first time the same guys are derailing the thread because of trans people. It's getting tiresome.

What was the unedited post?
I'll take a guess he called out their hypocrisy and got dog piled. "Man said bad thing, now we are justified to say many bad things to bad man" also he's probably a nazi. Era are NPCs, it's all scripted now.

I want to be the first to say, the 2010s are the worst decade in all of human history.

I don't care what happened last decade, or the decade before that, or fricken 5000 BCE.

The 2010s has demonstrated that, when human beings are paired with technology that enables the quick rapid transfer of information in mere miliseconds, the results are complete shit and the complete proliferation of the lowest common denominator.

We should have been building rockets by now and going to Mars. Instead, we're stuck here on Earth, debating whether we are racists for supporting borders, or sexists for using for the wrong pronoun.
Yeah, imagine a decade worse than the 40s.

I'm in full agreement with you about that thread. Disappointing is a good word for it. People using a 15 year old getting harassed to make the same tired, anti-trans arguments against desired pronoun use? Take that to another thread that's actually about that topic, preferably one that's not on the forum that's supposed to be about video games. We have a separate politics forum for a reason.

Anyhow, I hope you reconsider as well.

Yeah, imagine a decade worse than the 40s.
The world still managed to rebuild, even after the huge devastation the second world war created. The invention of the atom bomb literally guaranteed another world war would never happen again, and we also saw many other technological breakthroughs that would eventually help mankind later develop Space technology and go to the moon.

The keyword in all of this is "rebuild". I do not have fear for as long as there exists a window of opportunity to continue where we left off.

With the 2010s, these dreams feel crushed. SJW's have waged a culture war. We wont be able to recover from the damage they have done to Western countries, because it's not bullets or bombs being dropped on us, they are changing our politics to be suicidal.

Also, this may be double posting but it deserves its own special mention.




This is what peak 2019 looks like.
Forget the wars. Forget the SJWs. Forget the memes.

We lived long enough to see the USA be completely mocked..... by entire countries that are sending their entire population to go live there because they refuse to fix their own.

Must be a nice timeline we're living in, eh?
I remember that guy when Bolsonaro has won the elections in Brazil.



I also remeber this particular guest appearance in that same thread too.

Speaking in Brazil, a brazilian mod named Brazil said that it is stupid to harass someone on Twitter (regarding the hate Junichi Masuda is getting right now).

But the same mod was harassing Razer on Twitter because they don't want certain girl with them.

I called him for that and... he blocked me at Twitter.

Yes. Double standards. Pure idiocy. Hypocrisy.

Who knows , Xaero didn't say his reasons about why that thread has triggered him so much.
You had a few reactionary posts in there which probably were not very PC but you have to realise that there are people sick of the social justice wheel rolling over shit
the thread is actually allowing discussion of the matter instead of bottling it up

i dont agree with some of the views in the thread and to be honest i would be pretty disgusted if my kids grew up and posted stuff in that thread online
but this is what life experience is....if you cant handle some flak then you really gotta get working on that shit

*Etika kills himself*

Neogaf: He killed himself because people on the internet harassed him

*15 years old girl gets harassed on the internet*

"She deserves it with pictures like this"
"She needs to grow a thicker skin, it's the internet"
"She's over exaggerating it and she's 15"

The hypocrisy on display here is truly something else.
The flaw with both of your examples is you assume GAF is a hivemind.

Plenty spoke up and said that Etika's harassment was due to his own actions, including yourself:

What happened to Etika is a sad story of someone not finding the proper help, and sure, some people were extremely offensive towards him.

But let's not act like saying anti-Semitic shit like "fuck the Jews" as being "not politically correct" just to shit on Resetera. What he said online was deserving of some backlash.
And in the case of the Smash thread, plenty spoke up and said her harassment was unacceptable.

The only person you're fooling is yourself.

I am one of those people kinda tired of SJW thing too. I confront that by making fun of SJW standards. But so many subjects were being approached there, even Smash player having hygiene or not when attending to contest in public places, that I got wondering what exactly did trigger him so much.

But maybe it was about the personal life of that girl and what people thought about that...

Look, some minds just like to go deeper than the surface of the things we are told, because no matter the subject, seeking the truth is a good thing.

That spawns other perspectives and opinions, more information and data into discussions, even if we only like one or a few of them.

Your post, even if I know where you come from, looks biased, like a poster below said.

There's a lot of times where some people just assume what we all know (in this case: harrasing is bad!), and just try to look up for more, and actually, a lot of things posted beyond the victim perspective are right.
-She is 15 and internet is no place for kids.
-She said harrasment but we dont actually know what actually happened.
-One needs a thicker skin to stay in internet without falling into emotional outbursts.

i think sometimes one should not take things like an omission, but like an addition instead.

And also, I should say that even with the possibility of looking like an asshole or even being wrong, that is a good attitude.
Patting a victims head may sound more 'human', but if you show the person the reality, he can make a change and be better.

"Oh no they caught us.
the kid was suicidal and is no longer with us because of what we did in that thread"

You can now go back to ERA and tell you single handed defeat GAF. You can also print this message of mine as a proof.

If they still don't believe you then you can bring this trophy as a proof aswell.

that's cos you are posting a bullshit strawman. the thread is nothing like that.

Era was ~30 pages of people openly mocking a suicide note. the same people also joking in discord and Twitter. this includes during the period when people didn't know if he followed through with it or not (and were still flippant about it) followed immediately (once his suicide was confirmed) by a 50 page thread of people publicly stroking their own egos over how seriously they take mental health.

the Neo thread is mostly people saying "She should stay off the internet". yes some jokers in there but the content is vastly different. it's an entirely different thing.

but yes if you are defending Era i could see how you would be unable to tell the difference between public suicide note with someone threatening to leave Twitter.

Let's say hypocrisy is such a fun and delusional game to play when you try so hard by living the impossible standards and your fictional cult leaders (i.e. ERA) don't pratice what they preach.

Indeed, but I think they could do more work on 'ignore' feature.
You see, even ignoring a person or a thread I can still see them by the 'top 3 most view threads' or above the area selection.
I think the staff could do better taking 'ignore' feature into another level.

Lmao they were not joking but OK

Also I'm pointing how everyone was railed up because of the internet harassment Etika received online while this girl is being victim blamed.

Also I'm not defending Resetera so stop with the incredibly funny response of "go back to Reset"

Good thing you kinda already established a quite fan fiction. You just need now to wait the victims and the perpetrators to be materialised and ...bang... you got "I told you so..." moment to tell your kids about.

No. I called the cops, finally.

He hasn’t stopped yet. The dispatcher said she would send a police unit by.

Also, why would I talk to him? It’s not a misunderstanding. He’s aware of the time, and I assume he’s familiar with the concept of sleep and knows that people around him partake in the ritual of sleeping.
yes why would you take 5 minutes of your times to talk to your neighbor when you can simply call the police and let the powerful arm of the state do your dirty work for you?
