How can anyone dislike Terry Crews? He is a fucking treasure.
Did Crackdown 3 hurt people that much? Was it ACAB (all cop actors bastards)?
That's part of it, him starring in Brooklyn 99 is "copaganda" - even though the series shows cops as buffoons.

Generally though, any successful black person to them is a Uncle Tom, because in their view, no black person can ever be successful without selling out to whitey, which in of itself is an incredibly racist and patronizing mindset.

In today's news: Everything was pedophile OR: Resetera REALLY cannot discern fiction from reality:


The entire thread is dumb. Not one of them could answer what's bad about someone fapping to anime loli/shota, but they'll condemn it anyway, because, guess what, they're fascists who want their ideology pushed onto everyone.

Anyway, let's ban anime, huh.

I wonder how persistent that worldview could be or will it age out? Especially since it's contradictory.
You don't need to wonder, just look at the last 30 years of europe and the evolution of pes, pel, nordic green left and efa.

I still don't understand what concern trolling is.
It's like if you pretend to care about something to expose someone's bullshit.

So if I made a thread saying something like "has anyone ever noticed that over 95% of all victims of police brutality are male but men are only 50% of the population."

That would be "concern trolling" because they know DAMN WELL that the answer to that problem is "men commit more crime than women".

So they'd basically be saying "you don't really care about men, you are just using this point to show how wrong we are about something else".

Or in this case you are asking if modern Turkey should be held accountable for the actions of the Ottoman Empire. It exposes a major flaw in their argument, the arbitrarily drawn line in time from which historic reparations should be considered, so they need to shut it down. You don't care about the Ottoman Empire so this is just "concern trolling".

Essentially you are proving them wrong but you are doing it in an incorrect way so they can dismiss you and never have to admit they are wrong.

Just another tactic that has been developed for mental midgets on the internet to avoid embarrassing defeats in debates and discussions.

So we can go back and comb through Bdubs and Stinkles history.
that gif is Bdubs in blackface to go with his racist, homophobic and anti-trans comments.

I'd defer to RE on that one. If there's anything they are experts in, it's pedophilia

Sadly a lot of people believe it's alright to sexualize minors because "they are not real".

It's almost like that's a FRIGGING GOOD argument, though.

Wow, two reasonable users in this thread. Now let's count down to their inevitable ban:



Edit:

Haha, the dogpiling begins. Fuck these terrible ignorant people:


Edit:

OMG, it only gets better:

No it’s not. Not ridiculous at all. Sexualizing children is Sexualizing children. And some folks already seem to think it’s ok if it’s drawn. What’s the difference?

Yeah, what's the difference between real children and anime girls!

Never go near real children, motherfucker. Someone should forward his posting tothe FBI.

Edit:

Aaand "Midnight Train" got banned for making a most reasonable, calm posting. Haha, this forum is so screwed in the head. They don't see a difference between fictional sexualization and real child porn, but dare you mention that the same would then go for violence, they instantly go "Nu-uh, fictional violence and real violence are totally different!!1"

I hate these so much. :/

I just saw the thread where they complain about the voice of your Cyberpunk 2077-character determining its gender. WTF is wrong with them?

So you speak to npcs and EVERY time you want your avatar to correct them "woah woah, I'm actually a woman!", because OF COURSE npcs would assume that a female voice would indicate a female person!

sigh

... it's never enough.
Their fear is that all the men posing as women on era would get outed because CP2077 can correctly assign their gender :p

Oof, not a good look. Time to cancel Wikipedia, you ain’t slick with transphobic penis definitions

EDIT: Yikes, removed the link since the preview image shows a very triggering image
That's all kinds of stupid, like wouldn't a woman who wanted to transition over to a man WANT the penis to be defined as Male cause ya know they feel like they are male and want to be identified as such?!!!

This shit is beyond confusing, I'm trying real hard to understand transgender culture but everytime I see anyone talking about it a new "expert" sets new rules around its discourse!!!

Live and let live and all that but it seems some people want it to be a social "moving target" so it never settles into a definition so it can constantly be vilified over and over again, an endless cycle where they are always the victim

I'm betting these people are just jonesing on the virtue signalling and dont actually give a fuck about people who want to be or are transgender either



Edit sorry Chittagong

I messed up and it didn't quote your message, just your response I wasnt calling you stupid

I bet 100% of people who say they won’t buy a game will buy it anyway, they just won’t talk about it.

This is an offensively stupid thread and the fact that so many people got bans, while the OP can’t coherently make a compelling argument, nor respond to actual thoughtful posts, is ghastly.

What’s the point of even posting in that thread? Ugh.

That thread is absolutely vitriol.

The OP doesn't come with arguments, but also specifically lashes out at white people multiple times. Then, when some guy says ok lets give America back to the natives he gets assaulted by the hivemind and banned. They don't even deconstruct the thought, they just say its something else and he should shut up. Ottoman empire remark gets concern trolled as well. Or the classic its true because I read the book. Yeah, nazis say the same shit. Very objective.

Overly agressive people like this, they have skeletons in their own closet. Its inevitable that some scandal is going to hit them due to a slip up or hack. Authoritarian places like this typically don't last. In-fighting is inevitable. The amount of opressors will dry up because of bans or disinterest and allied media will eventually cut their ties if they become too controversial. Their 'luck' I think, is that they position themselves as minorities and victims of the system. They play that card, its more difficult to notice their racism as its more between the lines. When I read all whites suck ass and need to be purged, it has a different impact on me then when I read the same about other ethniticies. That is because they cultivate the fact that historically its true that whites have been on the receiving end for less. They use it as an excuse to green light racism towards this race however, while we hopefully know any existing form of racism should be cast out.

Lol, this is such an ERA thread

Closed after three pages because of the reports. Can't wait to see who will get banned.

It has the usual: You can't be racist against whites stuff as a bonus.

Apparantly racism = prejudice + power, hence POC can't be racist.

Is this some new definition of racism that nobody but ERA uses?
14 of the 50 posts on the first page are bans - that is 28%.

And the moderator post at the bottom of the page:

“Engaging in extended sealioning and whataboutism concerning irrelevant cultures such as the Egyptians or various native groups when it is clear the topic is about Europe's exploitation of black and brown peoples during colonialism and the Atlantic Slave Trade which continues to affect black and brown people living today is concern trolling.”

Irrelevant cultures...:messenger_grinning_sweat:

I'm failing to understand why that post should be forwarded to the FBI and he should keep away from children?

He's said what the vast majority think, sexulising children in drawings is considered a form of pedophilia.

Say if you and the commentor randomly met at the pub and started drinking and chatting with some other people in the pub, then something came on the TV about pedophiles, so you and the random people all call them scum and rightly so, then "lolis" are bought up and how it's pedophilia then you said what the poster he quoted said and he replies how he did, he'd be considered normal. You wouldn't at all and they'd probs think you should be kept away from children.

I think the way it works is that any twitter accusation against one of their own needs evidence, and any twitter accusation against someone they don't like is evidence.
Nah pal, they have members vouching for how bat shit insane she is, so it's all false regardless.

Mr Joker ate a 4 month ban. What a miserable cunt. He is as funny as getting full blown AIDS. Well deserved.

Okay, so making a thread explaining why I'm not buying Halo Infinite is a bad idea based on an alleged abuse but a thread saying I wont buy Cyberpunk 2077 because a pr person made an offensive tweet without permission before he was sacked is okay. 👍

Expectations met, can't keep a game thread about you know the actual game, gotta have trans-rights in every single thread all the time. Take half a page of a gaming thread if you like, hell they should rename the Halo Infinite thread to "Trans-Halo" for MORE awareness because one YT video content creator has other videos they didn't like. They weren't even fucking posted in the Halo thread.

Place is full of weak ass, over sensitive, mostly privileged, sheltered from the real world, whiny fucks.

I don't use forums much anymore but anytime I go look at that place (I really should stop but it is fuelled by some morbid curiosity of what uber woke joyless cunts are up to these days) the more I realise I couldnt deal with these people in real life. They would be even more exhausting, joyless and for the most part cowardly fucks than they are online, would take huge energy not to choke a few of them.

I remember having great fun on this forum back during the days of PS3 & 360, GFW Radio, FHUTA, $30 Italian meal and countless other great threads on both sections. Even joining the unofficial IRC channel for when the forum would go down under E3 strain because I didn't want to lose out on the banter.

I miss those days, the internet as a place was so much fun back then.


Most of those Era assholes couldnt handle the place as it was back then, no sense of humour and too sensitive .... glad they werent there back then.

When you ban everyone trying to have fun for “drive by posting” and turn every thread into some kind of social justice competition then yeah - how is that fun?

That place is depressing as hell to actually read and engage with.
Too serious is my assessment. It gets exhausting.

It's there. Just locked lol.

I post in both forums and try to be civil in both places. I get that ERA wants to focus on social justice. That's great. But when it bleeds into every thread, it's exhausting.

I like to use the analogy of the virtual water cooler-where you joking around, shooting the shit, and whatnot. While I do like the deep discussion on important topics, when you have no levity at all, it can be exhausting.

I like that it basically ends with a mod saying "if you can't deal with the endless pettiness and looking for problematic content, then the door is that way" (paraphrasing of course)

It's a gaming board. You are not saving the world by having a "discussion" for the thousandth time on how important it is to have a black character in Smash or whatever the hot topic of the day is.

A bit of positivity might lift some folks out of the mire a little bit too. Or maybe they just all hate their hobby.

It is exhausting and completely misplaced. You won't change the world on a video game message board.

If Era does... Well I'd be eating humble pie for sure.

Those are easy to avoid actually. It that's regular topics get inundated with agendas all time. An ND topic today became some witch-hunt on Druckmann because he congratulated some former Kinda Funny dude on Twitter. It's exhausting lol. And this happens a lot.

And not to mention the constant calls to boycott stuff. Again, let that be its own thread, but it bleeds into everything lol.

It always felt to me like everyone was always just trying to see the negative or bad side of everything with gaming. Rather than celebrating a hobby which brings so many together.

Bad shit happens, I get that. But to be that upset or mad or disappointed all the time would just tank any person's mental health completely.

They could use that energy so much better if they weren't just stroking their keyboards about injustices in gaming all day.
