Time for a new boycott. Hobbes “Incident Manager“


I don’t agree with what Blizzard did but I’m not going to delete my Blizzard account over it.
Saw this on the first page of that thread. My heart goes out to those nihilistic incels at Era. Please, any ResetERA member, exit the cult and breathe fresh air:

Lol Cheebo calling anyone with criticism of the writing of female characters (by a white man) “alt right dogwhistles”

Haha. I think on the majority of other sites mods would just ban someone like Cheebo.

How many times do you reckon they have gotten someone banned over Star Wars arguments?

At some point people have to say you can't be attacking other posters and trying to get them banned from the site just because they don't like the movie that you like.

"It's a sexist dogwhistle". Dog whistle to who? You're already in an echo chamber!

You just have this one person acting like the Official Star Wars Thread Police. Someone posts a video that they think gives a good take on TLJ and Cheebo is right in there investigating the Youtuber's background and then the poster and then trying to get the ban because of "alt-right dogwhistles".

Just imagine if they found out one of the cameramen voted for Trump or something. "OMG if you watch this movie u are supporting RACISTS!" I seriously wonder how these people get out of the basement some mornings.
They fanboy over Marvel movies when Ike Perlmutter was CEO, made a shitload of money off of them, and he only stopped overseeing Marvel Studios in 2015.

Thank you Resetera for explaining the obvious. Except for one thing.....








TRUMP IS THE ONE WHO WON IN 2016 AND DEMOCRATS ARE IMPEACHING HIM FOR LITERALLY DOING HIS JOB

What the hell is an "Incident Manager"? Is he a security guard?
He was "Verified" as a freelance journalist but then he outed himself as just doing that part time and actually worked in IT. So that's his actual job but he's still verified. When we highlighted his actual job in this topic and as Ree mods like to look in here all the time his title was changed very quickly afterwards.

I don't get it. Most freelance journalists in the gaming press have other jobs. It's a necessity if you want food on your plate.

Yeah, I was having a good laugh at this one earlier.

It's probably a bullshit thread though.
Just seems like fishing for "woke points".

My SO and I are so woke we even stopped using words like "boyfriend" and "girlfriend".
They are just so outdated and binary, you know. It just doesn't feel "right" anymore.
The problem is that, tee hee, it puts us in a really quirky situation where we try out all these new terms and some of them feel weird.

It's quite funny seeing the woke crew fret over something so dumb as how you refer to your partner.

ResetEra - Where you can go to get relationship advice from a bunch of virgins but you are making the whole thing up so it doesn't matter anyway.

The ONLY appropriate response to ANY thread like that is "Pics or GTFO".

They genuinely believe they are pioneering a new way of thinking, which is why they bury a lot of their rhetoric behind distinct coded language and doublespeak (which would be an actual dogwhistle, by the way). It is the next evolution of the hipster who must show off their uniqueness (and in this case, wokeness too) to the audience around themselves.

I should make a woke troll topic to test this out.

There's another glorious relationship thread.


Excellent because you have arguments over monogamy, some guy getting chewed out for talking about "alpha males" etc.
That "alpha male" guy gets a response from OP. "This is a pretty shitty and sexist take." Then of course... User banned (1 month): misogyny, doubling down in a follow-up post. :)

Even in a thread like that they are looking to ban for going off script. :)

I love how the OP just drops all these little "nuggets" into the story.

Buried in the original post: "he was upset I didn't make time for her family and friends (her parents are hardcore Trump supporters and our personalities clashed) "

Then later on in a random update.

"Something I didn't mention and I honestly can't believe I forgot to — she has had mild depression and anxiety for a while now, at least a year. She takes meds every night, though there have been stretches for like a week or two where she stops taking it to see how she can function without it (I always kind of protest that because I don't see how it's healthy but I obviously can't make her do anything)."

Almost like the OP is bored by page 14 and thinks "what does ResetEra care about and I can drop that in".

Oh, I just forgot to mention my partner was on meds for "mild" mental illness problems but then she stopped taking the meds.
Just forgot that detail. You know how it is.

So then we pivot back into "we are going to try again" and I love this.
"She swears she has no legitimate interest in polyamory and that it was more of a result of her being off her medication, but that doesn't really make sense to me."

Hahaha. This motherfucker is OBVIOUSLY playing to the audience.

The truth about all of these relationship threads is that the story is ALWAYS one sided and there are ALWAYS little red flags that say "something is not right here".

OP says they met 2 years ago and SHE proposed.
Then OP says she is now 20 and he is 25. Just as an afterthought.
So he was 23 and she was only 18 when they met. Hmmmm....

Once again, "Pics or GTFO" is the only appropriate response there.
Taking relationship advice from those morons on ReetardEra is a bad idea.

I wonder if he was a bitch an outed and named all his confidential sources to the admins.

That's what the admins told me a year and a half ago when my site broke The Eternals news. If I wanted Era to "verify" my information I'd have to name names to ZhugeEX.

So does ZhugeEx get his sources from elsewhere other than his own places like at his job?

Ah, so the website is a racket for journalists to steal sources. No wonder certain videogame media outlets love Era.

They don't care about verified, the only reason they have that is to give Era credibility that "industry" people post there. They'll doxx anyone in a second if they go off script.

Oh it's OK for him to post leaked information. Anyone else can't unless they give the names of their sources to him.

They shook me down a while ago in PMs. I wouldn't give up names or identifying information. I gave them some screenshots of cropped Twitter DMs because I won't show them texts or emails. Wasn't good enough because they wanted names.

That's pretty shitty. You did the right thing.

Isn't the whole point of speculation and debates about helping one another corrolate the correct information?

I did like the guy on Twitter but it sounds like he's gone down a darker path.

Do we know why he got banned here?

And then when the Joker script leaked, B-Dubs tried to shake me down in PMs demanding to know who I got it from.

I told them I wouldn't name sources. I got fed up with them and had to cite the California Shield Law to them.
You got screencaps for that? we like screencaps here, not to say I don't believe you becuse that's perfectly plausible given the way Ree works.

I didn’t screenshot the B-Dubs PMs no. Mostly because I wasn’t home and busy when they were again trying to get me to name sources under the threat of a ban and I just wanted to get them off my back. Which is why I cited the CA shield law.

You could use the staff email and say you have important PMs you need to access, like work related stuff or something. Though assuming they monitor this thread, that might not work too well.

When you're so much of an NPC that you need to be told what you should or shouldn't buy rather than forming your own opinions. 🤔

ResetEra is the China of forums.
That is, they have so many users they can ban a lot of them and still survive
And also they ban anything they disagree with
They're essentially a communist forum

Time for a new boycott. Hobbes “Incident Manager“



I don’t agree with what Blizzard did but I’m not going to delete my Blizzard account over it.
Me either. Their games are too good. I will however support Mei being the symbol of the HK protests in an attempt to get Overwatch banned in China.

Fuck me the meltdown at Reee when Trump gets re-elected is going to be hilarious. You'll be able to literally hear spleens exploding. And he will get re-elected because the opposition is rubbish and people continuously attacking him actually makes his position stronger. Especially when they're attacking him regardless of what he does.

Also I agree that Resetera is the China of forums. You can't have an opinion or debate on there. I remember I once got banned for "Xenophobia" for calling out some Remainers in the Brexit forum on some of the BS they were spouting. I'm British btw and I wasn't aware that "Remain" was a race of people...

If you think Rian Johnson is a horrible director, you don't understand a single element of film making.
love these galaxy brain takes from RJ stans. "if you had a different opinion on a movie YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND A SINGLE ELEMENT OF FILM MAKING YOU MOUTH BREATHING IDIOT"

"also these are just fun space wizard movies for children but FUCK YOU FOREVER IF YOU DON'T LIKE THEM YO"U ARE THE MANBABY! NOT ME ! YOUUU!!!"

because being unable to handle other people's opinions is a true sign of maturity.

The GAF meltdown after the 2016 election was some of the most cringe worthy stuff on the internet. The ERA meltdown of 2020 will be 100 times more crazy.

I think Ree just outdid themselves on the most ludicrous graveyard thread ever.

This is straight-up batshit insane. Literally handing out bans like candy for not being outraged over a fucking cosplay body-suit.

Why would anyone in their right mind stay in such a miserable gulag of a community?
