They banned me again for no reason I could figure. I'm done there. If you ban everyone who has a different opinion than you how can you have a discussion? What's the point of having a forum at all?

What have the parents done to these kids?
What was the section you got banned in? I mean really it's impossible to get on their good sides without basically saying the same shit they say. But worded differently.

Eh. I forgot about not posting in any topic about race in the OT forum.

Basically I said in a topic about casting for the new Netflix Cowboy Bebop series that the anime was purposely left ambiguous because the future of humanity was more homogeneous. If Watanabe wanted us to know the race of the characters he would have said.

Not even sure why I got banned for that. Not going to waste my time there anymore.

Can you link to the post that got you banned?


EDIT: Nevermind I found it. Yeah you kinda earned that one. You can't just blast diverse casting like that. Especially when one of the main complaints about live adaptations of anime is the whitewashing that takes place.


I will say that a week is way too harsh. A warning or a day ban is more appropriate. Though I am not sure of your previous infractions that are mentioned in the ban message.

None that I can figure. I got banned for making a dumb joke about the new Batwoman series taking on manspreading as their social cause. That was it. Thought it was funny.

I wasn't blasting diverse casting, I was making just the opposite point about the sci fi genre and humanity as a whole, but they're so sensitive about race they'd rather ban me than discuss it. Pretty liberal view actually.

Hello Everyone, here is an example of what Nobody Important believes is "blasting" diverse casting:

Wag from the other forum said:
They were racially ambiguous because they were meant to be racially ambiguous. In the future the human race is more homogeneous.

Thank you for ruining that Netflix.
TOTALLY WORTH A BAN. You are such a transparent shill for their toxic values, NI. I really hope you're compensated with something more useful than virtue points for all the work you do in their name here.

I literally said

I will say that a week is way too harsh. A warning or a day ban is more appropriate.

So no in my opinion his statement was not that bad and at WORST deserved a single day and thats only if the mod wanted to be a dick. You all constantly pretend I support Era 100% despite me speaking out against on multiple occasions. I have repeatedly spoken out against the staff and the way they handle things, but yet you all pretend like I agree with all of it.



The least you can do is be honest if you are gonna try and attack me when it come to my stance on Era. I am far from supporting the whole site and its staff and yet you all accuse me of being biased or shilling every time I say anything at all.

And Anime whitewashes itself. :messenger_tears_of_joy:
Can you elaborate? I am not sure what you mean.

So, @Nobody_Important what was about @Wag 's comment there that honestly required a ban? Because, normal people see nothing outrageous about it.

Also, you kinda proved @bigedole 's point, he accuses you of thinking this post is worth a ban and you try to deflect on the length of the ban.
To me that post at first glance with no real thought reads as if he is upset that Netflix is casting minorities in the key roles. Now I get that is not what he meant, but I could see how someone could glance at the post and see it that way. And even then I don't find it particularly egregious. Like I said a day AT MOST if the mod wants to be a dick. Otherwise a warning to simply word your posts better so there is no misunderstandings would be fine with me.


You all are acting like I want the guy strung up by his heels and whipped just because I said I could possibly see how it could be offensive. You all are WAY too eager to attack era and anyone that could be seen as defending it. Its like you didn't even read what I actually said before jumping on me.

No, I'm acting like you said

Next deflection?

Yeah he "kinda" earned it is what I said. As in I could see how his post was interpreted. Notice how I didn't say "Yep totally deserved a week!" or something similar. Instead I said that I kinda understood it, but that it was still too harsh.


You are reaching for something that isn't there and trying to twist my words to fit what you want my stance to be even though I am standing here telling you what my stance actually is. Its kind of ridiculous actually how hard you trying right now.

You all are WAY too eager to attack era and anyone that could be seen as defending it. Its like you didn't even read what I actually said before jumping on me.

First, let's see the post of his:

They were racially ambiguous because they were meant to be racially ambiguous. In the future the human race is more homogeneous.

Thank you for ruining that Netflix.
And you know, it's true, the world of the future is more racial homogenous, the world of 40 years from now is going to be more racial homogenous, with the examples starting from S.Africa, China and of course, USA.

There is nowhere in the anime (never read the manga) that showcases the cast's origins.

Now you said to Wag:

EDIT: Nevermind I found it. Yeah you kinda earned that one
And yes, I read your deflection to Bigedole's remark, it won't save you, when you tell someone you "kinda had it coming" it means "I know you deserved it, but I ain't got the guts to say it upfront to you" for example if another guy responds to the news that a kid was hit by a car while he was passing the road while simmultaneously playing his Pokemon Go game "he kinda had it coming" is both pathetic and cowardice.

Also, the second paragraph of yours is your usual tirade of playing victim after acting as a shill for this place with some projection on your part.

Also you got it all wrong in both threads Era is mentioned in this site, you are not attacked for defending them, you are being ridiculed for defending this asinine pile of manchildren.
Like all ridiculous positions merit to be ridiculed.

P.S.


That's Jet Black from the anime, in the Netflix show he is African. Do you lambast the blackwashing just as much as the white-washing or, not? Rhetorical question, of course.

A common conceit in sci-fi is central characters who are more ambiguous in not only race, but sexuality, religion, etc. I was trying to make that point. Of course they are so oversensitive they totally missed that completely. So I was dumbfounded completely when I got banned for that. I couldn't imagine what's so offensive about my statement.

They call themselves liberal and progressive over there- I am as well. I'm probably one of the older members of the forum, that could be why we're having a disconnect, I don't know.

Mixed race relationships count as cultural appropriation now or am I misreading?
Well, usually when you marry into other cultures, you adopt some of their values, traditions, clothing, etc.. That is a big no no in the newspeak handbook.

Or are there lines in the imaginary sand castles they are building? How far does this go matt? Huh matt?! How far?!

Not very far. I don’t think they’ve really thought it through.

The problem is that you reached a different conclusion than The Names. It does not matter how valid or factual your point is, your conclusion was wrong, therefore you were wrong and you had to eat a ban.

The bolded is in a nutshell how The Names, such as SweetNicole render their thought patterns. Just stick to matching their conclusions and ResetERA is a great free space. Just don't deviate from it..

So no in my opinion his statement was not that bad and at WORST deserved a single day and thats only if the mod wanted to be a dick.
If that even at worst deserved a single day ban, then does that not prove how messed up the system is. But okay, Only if the mod wanted to be a dick.

Unfortunately SweetNicole loves to be a dick most of the times, unless you want to argue that the standard ban reason text is from someone else.

You all constantly pretend I support Era 100% despite me speaking out against on multiple occasions. I have repeatedly spoken out against the staff and the way they handle things, but yet you all pretend like I agree with all of it.
You are also friends with the staff.

.....

That's literally my argument, by the way. I have given you the option to a healthy discussion before, but you forfeited it because others (Not me) were hurling insults to you. That does not mean you have to disengage the discussion with me, but you did so anyway, saying agree to disagree. Why? I had to present an argument and i gave you an elaborated one and that was the answer?

You know, its okay to come up with counter arguments and elaborate on them instead of asking others to elaborate their claims all the time. Yes, i am a bit spiteful in this regard, because i am not taking the words of many on your character at face value, but when it comes to indepth discussions, i now know you aren't making it easy for me. Be a discussion partner of calibre instead of bucking out at the first sight of danger, and i was not even the danger to start with.

The least you can do is be honest if you are gonna try and attack me when it come to my stance on Era. I am far from supporting the whole site and its staff and yet you all accuse me of being biased or shilling every time I say anything at all.
Guess what, i did, and then you bucked out of it. You wanted examples so i gave you them. Then you threw a forfeit. Why? You had no arguments to back it up, or you felt like a blanket white flag (Since others were less generous and less patient with you?) was good enough?

You all are acting like I want the guy strung up by his heels and whipped just because I said I could possibly see how it could be offensive.

You all are WAY too eager to attack era and anyone that could be seen as defending it. Its like you didn't even read what I actually said before jumping on me.
''Can you link to the post that got you banned? EDIT: Nevermind I found it. Yeah you kinda earned that one. You can't just blast diverse casting like that. Especially when one of the main complaints about live adaptations of anime is the whitewashing that takes place.''

That is what you said, not that you said that you could possibly see how it could be offensive. For the record, there is a difference to be found.

Eh. I'm really done over there. I might post occasionally in the VG forum if I need a tip or something, only because they have such a large user base.

If I'm at the point where I have to reconsider every single post I make because I might get banned there's no point.

Guys honest question:

Is it illegal to be quoting resetera members' posts and mocking them here?

I mean other posters in this thread have been doing it, and I admit I got a good laugh at it.

So is it illegal to do that without the resetera member knowing he is being made fun of on another forum?

I assumed since restera is a public web forum....it's fine to do so. If it was a private message...that's a different story.

I saw a laughable TLJ post defending the film on a forum...and I couldn't resist the chance to do a harmless troll on another forum where everyone hates TLJ...so I posted it on the other forum using most of the same words....then after a few replies, I tell everyone "Hey guys jk I was fucking with you. I was parodying a last jedi apologist".

Then.....a member on the first forum discovers this (stalking my online activity...too much free time on his hands?)....

and comes back and posts:

"EVERYONE!! THIS GUYS IS COPYING POSTS FROM HERE ON OTHER WEBSITES AND FORUMS AND MOCKING MEMBERS HERE!!! OPENLY ADMITS TO IMITATING THE LAST JEDI "APOLOGISTS"!! HE ALSO ADMITS TO TROLLING ON OTHER SITES AND EVERYONE NEEDS TO KNOW ABOUT THIS. WE CAN BRING HIM DOWN!"

Then I call him out for exaggerating and being a creepy stalker...

He responds with: "You don't know how I get my information. Keep that in mind for the future you don't know who you're dealing with. Everyone deserves to know what you are doing"

The guy is attempting to catch me posting something bad and reporting me.....I'm gonna get Star Wars #metoo'd

Star Wars fans, especially the hyperbolical kind, are among the worst internet characters. Your mistake was taking a punt at such a user and thinking it is safe to do so.

He responds with: "You don't know how I get my information. Keep that in mind for the future you don't know who you're dealing with. Everyone deserves to know what you are doing"

He isn''t attempting anything as those empty threats are just that, empty. That's what most threats of this nature are anyways.

It would be bad if RedMercury is quoting your post or Enzom21. If that happens, Do Not Address Them. It is actually statistically proven that replying to these users will result in you getting actioned. Likely they report your posts, or mods see replies to these users quicker. Just Do Not Address Them unless you want to lose your account.

How do I shill for them? I have criticised them, like how they handled the Steam ERA thread (there's a reason MetaCouncil exist).
You might want to insert Matt_404_au.exe into your system before you understand his humour.

No, they banned people for talking about RE on other sites. It's happened several times with users here with that message. You can search within the threads here as well as other places online.

resetera needs to separate their politics threads from their OT.

The OT there is ridiculous. It's basically "The world is on fire" - the forum. The majority of the threads are very political.

And each political thread is so predictable....it goes like this:

1st post: ________ just said that <insert controversial statement>
1st reply: Fuck _______. He's a piece of shit.
2nd reply: ___________ go fuck yourself
3rd reply: He's a scumbag, racist piece of shit.
4th reply: Fuck __________. Racist, piece of shit.
5th reply. Get fucked, _________.

and so on.....it gets so nauseating and disturbing at the same time. They are just parroting each other and don't even realize it.

Those angry and violent students who protest at universities whenever Ben Shapiro is scheduled to make an appearance...resetera seems like a forum filled with those angry hateful college students.

And they seem to be getting even crazier by the month. I go back and lurk once every month out of curiosity, and each time the atmosphere is even more toxic.

They can't do that because the "EVERYTHING IS POLITICS!!!!!!!!" people would just go apeshit.

And what if normal users start to want a separated board for politics in gaming too, then?

Yeah I just stay away from Etcetera as it’s so much politics. On desktop it’s ok as I use the user script to filter out political topics, but that doesn’t work for mobile where I do most of my browsing. But I agree the politics are everything crowd would lose their shit if it was split out to its own area. It’s a shame too as there are some great threads there that would get even more traffic if the politics didn’t keep many away. Unlike here where traffic is just still too low and making thnoolirics area didn’t rejuvenate the off topic area (yet anyway). Gaming area is mostly fine with the political threads fewer and easier to ignore with the hide thread feature.
