Can sorta see where Trickster (The user replying to you) is going, as yes, by way of example, that could be out of place.

However, i don't see why that is a 3 day ban. Below i cited your post and bolded what i believe caused you to get banned. I don't think its banworthy, by the way.



''I honestly don't get this place at times. If anything my comment is a compliment to Michelle that she looks as good as she does at her age.
Probably the correct way to say it was 'this is one beautiful woman' so don't step on toes but i couldn't give a shit really. Nothing about my comment was offensive in the slightest. Some people need their heads examined if that was an offensive thing to say. If they want to complain, complain to the mods.''


The bolded triggered The Names because you are showing disdain for their might. You reached the wrong conclusion so you are out.
I should probably not have said 'Hot AF' but then again i don't see anything wrong with my initial post. My responses to the user who questioned my 'hot af' post was more of a surprise because to him what i said was offensive.
Also i don't believe my post was ban worthy and especially ban worthy for 3 days. I have since written an email to the Resetera staff to remove my account. Till this day they have not removed it.
I have stopped visiting the site. Man i love off topic chats, gaming chats too and i may not always have time to respond to messages all the time but this incident has put me off that forum in a big way. I have seen obvious troll posts get 1 day bans and sometimes not even a ban, yet i get a 3 day ban for the above.

I mean when there is a serious topic and someone comes barging in telling the crowd the lady on the mic looks hot as shit, then yeah, that is kinda inappropiate. I guess that's where this went.

Not banworthy though, the fact that it is is just typical.

Finally permabanned from that PC cesspit. Why I bothered attempting communication with those morons I have no idea.

I can't even tell what's parody and what's real, as a trans woman with 5 o clock shadow in avatar photo screams that James Woods is trying to destroy her existence by appearing in Kingdom Hearts.

That’s pretty funny, with posts like that I’m glad you are here! I hope you aren’t completely burned out from your time over there. You’ve gotta learn to laugh. That forum is a mess.

I mean I know this is old news but literally everyone there is desperately posting anything they can to ruin someone. Oh look, producer on minor indie game said "gay" 10 years ago when he was 14 in a tweet, let's get him fired. The so called progressive left are the least tolerant people around, in fact they're actively hostile. Ugh.

Oh and I remember years ago cliffyB saying "most of the industry think you're cunts" to GAF. I realise now he was referring to the callout culture nerds, now fully embraced by the current trend of super hardcore vocal lefty loonies. Soon to die, by the way, already eating itself.

Sorry this is all obvious, I just had to rant.

All the names that made GAF unbearable are prolific over there. Cant enter a thread without a wanky post from the likee of Leng Jai, Glam FM, Xviper, Impthedimp, I wont go on but they are just some names that got GAF that rep CliffyB shared with us. The same cunts are doing the same thing at Era now.

Basically you go back to what Paul Rubio said about oldGAF and that's what has moved on, the whole whipping up a hate crowd:

"Even so, If I had read Neogaf at the time the game probably wouldn't exist. I spent some time six months ago going through two-and-a-half years of comments on Neogaf, and I was literally crying for two days. Partly because I just don't understand the cruelty, but more importantly because I could see those years over those two days, and I began to understand that maybe people can love something so much that they can hate it."
It only takes a few with mob mentality to create a culture of out-hating one another for notoriety. I think Gaf, while we still have a few asshats arguing amongst each other and over gender articles, generally the overall tone of tolerance has improved. And I think based on what we're seeing with the core of volunteers that @Musky_Cheese is leading on then we can get a real genuine tight-knit place going that has actually worthwhile commentary on videogames, BUT is done in an adult fashion.

They just banned me for suggesting that a boxer that was a man and changed his gender to a woman should PROBABLY not box against other woman. Banned because "Excusing transphobic rhetoric". The mods there are really SJW divas and not even a discussion is allowed. You either follow the hive mind or you are no longer allowed to speak. It's just sad that most game specific OT topics are pretty much dead here on GAF :(

What game(s) do you want to talk about?

I see this sentiment fairly often and I have to ask: do you not have the ability to add your post unless you see a ton of others already posting in a thread?

Nothing says progress like wanting a woman to get potential brain damage fighting someone else that was genetically born with the strength of a biological man.

It is not transphobic to show welfare concerns grounded in reality.

These people are Looney Toons.

No, I meant take the BF5 OT for example. There is a real discussion (multiple postings per day) on the Resetera OT but no one has said a word for over a week in the BF5 OT here on GAF.

There are many reasons why BFV is not a very active OT here. It isn't a well liked game.
Gonna echo this...coming from an extremely active platoon with about 10 seperate platoons in bf1.....we now have problems trying to get one full platoon...nobody likes the way it plays

In the quest for realistic they forgot the fun

Yeah well... I have to admit this is absolutely true. And the Era thread was mostly the same people (including me) circlejerking how bad this game is. I still play it here and there though, Stockholm Syndrome I guess.

I could never post on Reset ERA because I lack a non-free email account, but I've lurked there since Day#1 because it was the best source for video gaming news (they seemed to always be the first to leak stuff and there were tons of posters who would chime in with their sources), so I kept lurking.

As the months went by, I couldn't help but notice that the moderation was slowly taking a nasty turn - to the point where I began to question whether all Americans shared those social and political views concerning women, racism, religion and other 'sensitive' matters. I am not an American, I'm European (Greek, in fact).

It wasn't until this week that I grew annoyed with the community there. Two were the topics that broke the camel's back for me. The one about MK11 and the WWE female wrestler who was constantly insulted and spurned by the majority of the community (banning anyone who would dare to say otherwise no matter his/her approach) and the topic with SonicFOX openly saying he was gay (and anyone not congratulating him or being even slightly unimpressed was, of course, quickly banned). It was mind-blowing. A guy was banned for saying "Good for him (SonicFOX). I'm straight." He was banned for typing that. People were getting banned for not agreeing that Ronda Rousey was a 'horrible person'. Because she didn't want to fight a man who changed into a woman. Because she didn't think it was fair. Because apparently, quoting biology makes you a transphobe.

It didn't seem right to me (no pun intended). So I googled 'ResetERA sucks' to see if I could find people who thought that level of moderation was as lousy as I thought it was. And I came here.

Best google search I've ever done. Nah, scratch that, second best. Best google search was 'Can you get HIV by kissing?' :D

Joke isnt it

I said that 2milly wont win his Fortnite lawsuit, because he hasnt got a case. Which he hasnt. I got warned, then banned, in a thread full of morons shouting "get paid black man". His race is irrelevant, he has no case.

They are a pitiful, tragic, pathetic bunch of whiney bitches, desperately positively discriminating any alleged minority they can.

or, in short, to resetera, if you are trans, gay, LGBTQ whatever, you can do no wrong. And anyone DARING to suggest something absurd like a trans man shouldnt fight a natural woman, (google Fallon Fox), you get permabanned for furthering trans stereotypes.

In 5 years, when reality comes a calling for all of them and forces them into the world of work, they will be eaten alive.

That's a new part of the narrative that is cropping up. It also happened with Bezos getting divorced - lot's of similar statements like "get paid girl". As if she was somehow deprived of her just rewards beforehand, and the new influx of money is justice. Very strange.

I'm not sure they will, unless rational people can displace (or, better yet, functionally neuter) HR/PR departments in a lot of big corporations. Those are incredibly low-skill jobs, and these sorts flock to them and fill them up, which is having devastating effects on other areas of the company because they control the corporate cultures.

I hadnt realised how little regard the world pays to resetera types, but im beginning to. No one gives a shit what super liberals have to say, they really dont. Capitalists run the world..they make things, build things, run businesses, that's how the world ticks over. Liberals all sit around in a metaphorical field, deciding what to be offended by, and what oppressed mass (who didnt ask for) their attention, will receive it.

I mean, imagine asking a bunch of reseteras to build a bridge. They'd sit around deciding on a name for a year, then another 2 years deciding what colour is the most inclusive and tolerant (answer: all of them, a big rainbow bridge at 10x the cost of a single colour), they'd spend another 4 sourcing ethnically unharmful to mother earth materials, and a volounteer, not oppressed, vegan workforce who can only do 2 hours a day, because they're permanently exhausted, and the elephants they hired to pull wagons have all died of tofu poisoning.

After about 10 years they'd end up with half a bridge made of hemp, that's burned down 3 times during construction, who's name has changed 6 times after each historical figure picked was since discovered to have said something vaguely racist centuries ago, the volounteer workforce of trans female to male workers are refusing to wear hard hats, as they reinforce gender stereotypes, and their fake stubble keeps washing off if they have to lift something and break sweat. The only thing even vaguely nearing completion is the knitted gender neutral rainbow unicorn statue made for the opening ceremony, but it was stolen by a black trans woman in a wheelchair, and no one is touching that situation with a bargepole.

This isn't necessarily true, unfortunately. These sorts are getting into the aforementioned HR/PR positions in companies and slowly *coughprogressivelycough* steering the company their way. Those positions control who is hired and fired. They control the public face of the company, which the executives place a lot of stock in. They have quite a bit of power.

So the question in everyone's head is "Why would a black trans woman in a wheelchair steal a unicorn statue?"

To me it was about the frequency of new discussions/news to read. There was faster than here, given the exodus. But looking back on RE, you did take a dip in actually discussing things because you could see half of the conversation participations were now banned, so it was like walking on eggshells.

Hopefully things here have improved for Gaffers who have been put off by activity level. Let us know how we are doing and what we can improve on.

I consider myself a very proactive person, so I cannot help it when I hear people acknowledge the relative activity levels without realizing every user there is a part of it. You reap what you sow.

Resetera seems like the internet version of The Chinese Gov.
I swear when GAF went weird during the migration, loads of people admitted posting PC because they felt they had to fit in. Now over there, it's so fucking hardline far left it's impossible to even state a neutral position. There was something about mens rights to not find trans women attractive, and not an ounce of dissent was tolerated.

My personal prediction is that the world moves past this PC rubbish, as it always does, and resetera will remain in a bubble, making itself more and more irrelevant. As far as open dialogue and discussion of issues, it's already utterly irrelevant. As Bill Burr says, hard left hyper offended PC people aren't even adults, you can't speak to them, they're on the level of children. Children with simplistic political views like "la la la let's all get along", with no ability to process serious concepts and political nuance.

Sad thing is that a lot of those people still went over there regardless. Hopefully they get their head outta their ass and see reality.

You know, many of us saw it for what it truly was despite what they were telling us. We stayed and decided to help rebuild GAF to something positive. Meanwhile, their growth has flatlined and their mental issues / frustrations have compounded several times over.

Here I am, anothet user that got banned from resetera. Man that place... You can't have your own opinion. If its different they nail you in the coffin.

I got banned because of the Cristiano Ronaldo case, the one with allegations of rape.

Just because I told the girl was no saint either, and until proven wrong Ronaldo was not 100% guilty for me.

Guess what? Perma ban for downplaying females and sexual abuse. Seriously, wtf?

I even e-mail the admins later on, saying that they should be more open to others opinions and since the case was inconclusive so far, they should lift my ban, since Im not wrong either.

What did a get? A manhunt. Each account that I try to create is instantly perma banned.

That place may be a huge community, but has a scale of SJW and female activists that its of the charts.
