Just got banned for pointing out that been happy that notch having his "credit" removed for being the creator of mine craft is like when hideo had his name removed.

You cant go mad that hideos name is removed then praise it when someone you dont like has had it removed... that's been a hypocrite.

But I got banned for "inflammatory false equivalence" oh fuck off.

Fuck is wrong with their mental state?

That place is terrible on so many levels. I dont participate their but have read the next gen spec thread.

It serves an important role though. Its a magnet for the SJW of all kinnds so hopefully it stays over their.

They dont like men or white people.

Thier moderation is just based on a drop down menu, if they don't like what your saying and it's not breaking the rules they'll just select anything. Multiple infractions is their favorite "Rule".

I bet if you said any sentence that ended in a question mark here, you'd get a permanent.

User Banned (1 Week): Transphobic Rhetoric
I'm no fan of Rhonda and there is a lot not to like about her but I don't understand how her comments about the physical advantages of trans women over their cis gendered opponents are transphobic. Is this just something that we are not allowed to discuss because it's uncomfortable? Just today there is an article:
https://www.aol.com/article/news/20...regory-smashes-womens-world-records/23720231/
about a trans woman dominating a weightlifting competition breaking 4 world records in the process. There are competitors that feel like they don't have the ability to compete with her and are considering dropping out of competition because of this trans woman's unfair advantage (she competed in male competitions for 9 years before her transition). I strongly believe in LGBTQ rights and I am anti discrimination of anyone but it definitely looks like bulking up as biological male for a decade has given her a serious unfair advantage. Am I transphobic for thinking this way?

User Banned (Duration Pending): Excusing Transphobia; History of Severe Infractions
I wish there was a mod that i could actually have a conversation with.. Just looking at some of the post people have been banned for above .. It just seems like resetera members aren't allowed to have differing opinions.

Transphobia is defined as "Dislike of or prejudice against transsexual or transgender people."

Or irrational fear of, aversion to, or discrimination against transgender people

If resetera has its own definition, then that should be readily available in the terms of service (or something)

Some of the bans above are opinions and have not voiced any hate whatsoever.

Person a saying its ok to go 60 mph in a 55 limit area... Person b says no you cant do that.. And .... Person c says fuck person a i hate them stupid speeding fuckers. In this stupid scenario resetera bans person b and c

Just doesn't seem even remotely reasonable

Yeah, I think I'm off the wagon this time for good with that site.
Got a duration pending ban that turned to a month at the tail end and it's given me some time to think. Yup, there are other places I can go to shoot the shit about the stuff I talked about there.
... The infuriating thing about the ban is that I carefully described what I was afraid would happen for speaking up and it played out exactly as I predicted (because I slipped at the start and didn't qualify my opinion). I was so mad about it because I'm generally naive and believe most matters can be talked through but after spending some time searching through the site I'm really not sure that some of the staff are even acting in good faith. Maybe that doesn't sound so harsh to some people, but that's a pretty heavy accusation to me.



I'm attracted to women.
If this is real, could I have a source for that? That last part is too overt.

User banned (Duration pending): Individual thought is not the groupthink we are looking for.
Also, not being fully behind a belief is not good enough here (there is absolutely no irony in this statement, even though we have yet to determine your been duration).
Enjoy your time away.

I am not banned there, but I really feel it's getting too much with the SJW-stuff for me.

That's why I looked up what became of this place, and it seems to be much more mellow now than it has been before "the incident" when I have been banned for a month for just using the word "SJW" in an objective manner.
Will stay here for a while and see how it goes...

That place is super sensitive. I got banned for stating my opinion multiple times. It's like if your opinion doesn't align with the majority you get the hammer.

Here are some examples:

User Banned: (1 week) transphobia
User Banned (1 Week) Racial Sensitivity, Prior infractions,

First one: I agreed that men still have an advantage if they undergo surgery/hormonal therapy when fighting against women.

Second one: Remember that white couple that decided to dress up as Jay-Z and Beyonce? (Blackface) Well, I said that the guy should have gotten fired too and not just the girl because he looked worse.

Like wtf? Lol

Edit: I'm neither trasnsphobic nor racist.

If you have a cock and balls you aren’t a woman
Ban duration depends on clarification response from Haxan7:

Ban is permanent if you assume there aren't transgender folks out there.

But Ban will be changed to 1 week if you meant woman shouldn't be giving guys big sloppy blowjobs. You are correct as women prefer sucking on kale and quinoa now. Get with the times Haxan7 and be more clear.

Ban now changed to perma.

Clarification:

Mod 1 was too chicken to decide on a ban length, so you were passed onto Mod 2, who made it 30 days. Since all of us stick together, we decided to see if blue haired Mod 3 who just got a 4th nose ring and hasn't applied for a real day job in 2 years want to chime in.

She, no He... (we aren't sure since none of us have met him/her in person so we don't know if she's transgendered born male/thinks female or vice versa), has concluded your ban is permanent.

Here is the thing. They aren't. They never were (actually, for the first few weeks over there before the occupation, they weren't crazy bad). Now, they are far worse than the old-Gaf was, and old gaf was pretty bad.

Once you just accept the fact that discussion of difficult issues is not to be had on the site, then you can properly use the site if you so choose (ie, just look at some of the gaming news).

I can hate on konami for removing hideo's name on mgs5 and I can love microsoft for removing notch's name on minecraft...I dont see hypocrisy theyre totally different situations. but definitely should not be bannable

They’re really not different. You think Konami was being personal by removing Kojima’s name when it was just policy,
"It is Konami's company policy to not credit former employees."
His name is still all over the game.

I do think it was personal, but even if its just policy... it's .a company that has policy to remove former employees vs a company's policy to remove names who don't want to be associated with nazis

Fuck resetera. I just got banned for making my first post on that site It was a reply to a thread about a white teacher getting fired for taking a picture holding a noose. I replied saying I needed more context because a noose is used in other countries for the death penalty and if that's being called racist then I call anyone holding a syringe a racist. And the fact that I'm not white and a well hung brother. Lol that's all I said and within a minute I was banned. I guess I'm not too progressive thinking for that site.

Hi, GAF! I'm an anxious person, so I'll just say I will be posting in lots of threads here. This just happens to be my first post. I've lurked NeoGAF for years.

I vented about the things that were bothering me in the Mental Health thread and the Autism thread on ResetEra, well I did also make a bit of an off-topic post in another thread too (I wrote in the toonami thread that I would be responding about what's going on during the episode, but I'm busy being attacked by trolls on reddit, but that I do notice that a cat has become a plant and now they are facing a plant that shoots air bullets while the guy that caused this talks about his hand fetish and his kid spies on his dad and that I look forward to re-watching the episode later,) and maybe I shouldn't of wrote that.

And I was banned. With the ban reason of "We believe being on this forum is not good for your mental health."

I sent some e-mails with Contact Us on the bottom of the site, and they didn't respond to me; however they changed the ban reason to say that I am permanently because I am a threat to both myself and the community and that I was banned with no warning because of the severity of it.

I wish they actually warned me before banning me. But alas. I accept the ban. (Not really. Why must you ban me Era! I'm going there less and less, but people keep making threats that I could contribute in, but I am banned from there. I thought Era was perfect, but now I have like a Love/Hate relationship to it. I love it because people talk about things that I am also interested in, such as anime and video games and some other things; but I dislike that I was banned from there with no warning beforehand. I sent like 9 e-mails to Era saying I was banned with literally no warning beforehand and to please unban me, but no ones' responded to me. I almost wonder if the legion of haters/trolls following me around somehow contacted the admins there or what the hecka happened.)

So yeah I was banned with no warning beforehand, for venting about my problems in the Mental Health thread and the struggles that I have as a person with aspergers' syndrome in the Autism thread there, and maybe for the off-topic post I made in a toonami thread,

and now I am here.

Welcome, Hamster!

I have to say the bolded comes across as confusing.

I sent some e-mails with Contact Us on the bottom of the site, and they didn't respond to me; however they changed the ban reason to say that I am permanently because I am a threat to both myself and the community and that I was banned with no warning because of the severity of it.
  1. They rarely ever respond to mails, and if they do, its weeks if not months later.
  2. Changing the ban reason is a common feature employed by some of the staff. It ensures that, along with duration pending, there is a margin from which they can edit their reasonings after the fact.
  3. Whilst ERA in the early days warned more people than it banned, the opposite is in full effect: Bans are far more common than warnings. And what gets warned, is often questionable. Advocating murder may very well just be a warning whilst saying you like a certain game be a week ban or a false equivalency.
I thought Era was perfect, but now I have like a Love/Hate relationship to it. I love it because people talk about things that I am also interested in, such as anime and video games and some other things; but I dislike that I was banned from there with no warning beforehand.
No place is ever perfect, Hamster. You may have the impression it was perfect for you because for all its intents and purposes, ERA does tend to look out over the minorities of this planet. Just in a very haphazard way that gains them no points, but alas, they atleast do that. So i can understand that such a safe place is appealing. However, you would be ignoring ERA's global image by doing so.

Whether you will find GAF a good substitute is up to you. Perhaps you feel right at home, perhaps the rather direct nature of the topics and posters may have you experience pushback. So the best possible advice is to just have a look around and converse with posters.

With that said, Welcome to GAF and i hope you will enjoy your activity here.
