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.
Yep. There are many names for us. The “First Peoples”, the “Pioneers”, the “Fathers/Mothers”, the “Intelligentsia”. The stories will be passed down.

I'm just here until he gets the tag.
Go suck a big bag of dicks.

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.
Welcome back...just remember there are 2 sides to every story “wink wink”

I urge you to have a look around and post in some of the other threads on here as I think you will find we are all a pretty open and welcoming forum that likes to discuss all angles on something and providing your not a total cunt (I’m Aussie btw) and state your reasons for a controversial opinion you should enjoy it here.

Deactivated my account there because there is zero accountability for mods banning people over random shit they don't like.

GAF isn't really a lively alternative either anymore so I guess that marks the end to almost 2 decades of actively using Internet forums.

NeoNeoGAF is growing at a slow pace now. The specialized communities are dead right now, but there is no reason you couldn't promote things that you like here. You don't have to worry about walking on eggshells, and not posting because there is not as much traffic as there used to be is just self-defeating if you want a place to post.

I got sucked into the shiny new gaming section of era (which is fine actually, I wish I had just stayed there). But no, delved into off topic and voicing a dissenting opinion results in radical left wing spergs getting away with insults while the mods ban you for “trolling in an sensitive topic”

It really is a bubble, toxic masculinity from the least masculine generation ever. Requested a self ban.

Gonna stick with Gaf and lurking there for game news. If I can ever be bothered to make an alt account a chrome extension deleting off topic is gonna have to be included

Gaming forum is getting steadily vibrant again here with time, and I'm never going to tolerate those overbearing moderation practices here again. The people here are largely pretty reasonable on all levels nowadays, and that's the side that I'm on, so you can count on me. :messenger_smiling_with_eyes:
If people want overbearing moderation practices, then we have this atleast:

Oh boy my ban was changed into a permaban

I guess this was too much for them
I love how calling her a c**t (And not the Aussie accepted version of that!) is not a punishable offense (Or an insult even) but somehow its downplaying racism.

It is a terrible post though.

Because they get angry for pretty much everything. I linked to a tweet once. I didn't know that person but they all were sure that it was some gamergate person. So they banned me for posting a link...

Oh Yeah and I just remembered that I got the link from GAF :D and it was about Zöe Quinn

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.
I work in a reasonably large company with no HR department. I can honestly say it's a game changer. HR departments are the corporate embodiment of female social bullying. Fuck that shit.

I'd love to see them react to someone bringing up Allison Rapp some day over there. That was one of the big, "You say the truth about her and you're banned" moments here at one point.

The last I heard about her was that she became a pedo advocate.
She had that weird shit going on where she was writing papers that seemed sympathetic towards pedos or something along those lines, but I forget the details about that part. What you were never allowed to bring up was that she was a prostitute on the side. Of course a family-friendly company is going to fire her for that.

But, hey, if you don't let anyone bring that fact up, you can keep the narrative up that Nintendo fired a woman without cause and it's proof of patriarchy!

That was before her job at Nintendo and not what she got ousted for and it was not really pedo advocation. Being a sex worker on the side was what got her. Considering what Nintendo does, I can agree that sex work on the side when working in PR for Nintendo does not seem to be a sensible choice.

Lets parse this image response, not that it deserves to be dignified with a response in turn but I find your attempt at humor hilarious for all the wrong reasons. You are using reclaimed language in the context of a binary gender system. "Her". "Him". The white patriarchal hierarchy is also not-so-subtly present although I suppose you get points for not using a black man reaction image! Which by the way is the blackface equivalent on the internet. Intersectionality is, believe it or not, not that hard. Racist and sexist much? We can simultaneously recognize the issues faced by 2pocs and use reaction images that don't microaggressively make fun of their culture?

But no that's too hard. Enjoy your ban.

My understanding of Gamergate was that a big part of the reason it kicked off was because Zoe Quinn was performing sex work for PR, not doing the sex work on the side?

/that's actually sarcasm, I never followed gamergate and I still don't understand the whole thing. I just remember something about an accusation that she cheated on a boyfriend with someone from Kotaku or something and then shit went down when 4chan got involved or some crap.

We have a GamerGate thread that was pretty chill. This post in particular I found to be excellent synopsis from someone who was looking in from the outside.

Didn't she bring one of her clients to Nintendo offices to fuck him? I can't imagine that went over well.

That, and she was pimping out her boyfriend and forcing him to have gay sex.

I have not spent that much time with the case, but I have never heard she either brought someone to the Nintendo office or forced her husband to have sex with someone. I only know about her escort service job and pornographic pictures. Considering the person who linked me this information was pretty adamant about complaining about the NeoGAF posters protecting her at the time, I think he would have told me if either of those allegations you brought forth were true.

If true that kind of behaviour should get you sacked and get you jail time.
Pretty sure if the second part of the statement was true she would have experienced legal consequences.

Seems like "inappropriate commentary" is now the go-to bullshit reason to ban someone when a mod doesn't like a post and doesn't want to justify shit.

There is no ryhme or reason to it....I would honestly not be surprised if some of them are bi-polar as they remind me of my mother who was the same and you could not get a pattern to read off

You have not seen their mental health thread then.. I reckon for some members of The Names them being a mod is a literal lifesaver.

Hell for Jacob.Armitage it probably is.

But there are some truly bleak souls in that Mental Health thread. TBH, i really get a sense of sadness to see some users (particularly two) only contributions be their desire to kill themselves in various word variants.

There is a sense of sad irony that ERA houses such folk, and at the same time is prepared to endlessly discuss the nitpickings of marginalized minorities when the opportunity arises.

I have seen it and there are some decent people in their but there is so much bad advice and a real undertone of grooming going on which is actually pretty dangerous if you were running a forum as you could get your ass sued off if one of these people snaps and commits a major crime

What's grooming? Have seen this term but i do not know its specifics.

I do recognize that the kind of advice given is always the same. I also find it endlessly entertaining how Ketkat is held to such high regard in terms of that topic, only to squander it as soon as minority debate is involved. But i am glad she found purpose considering she was dabbling with thoughts aswell.

Albeit i don't think its healthy to constantly surround yourself with depressed individuals like that and taking on the god-awful task of trying to listen to each and everyone of them. Due to shared history she can relate, but its also exactly because of shared history she and others are also putting their own stability at risk.

I dunno, the concept is a good one, but what you see now is that some users literally get by on their advice like they are professionals. And they aren't.

@Redneckerz - Grooming is usually a pedophile thing. Broadly speaking it's winning the trust of a child with a view to meeting and fucking them.

Agree that being surrounded by depressed individuals is unhealthy. It's an unfortunate fact of human nature that people tend to gravitate away from the depressed, because they tend to spread the misery, it's why helping them is best left to professionals able to maintain distance while actually resolving the issue at hand. Concentrate them in a group and you have an eventual suicide pact.

When I was on Era I put every OP of a depression/suicide thread I come across on the ignore list. Pretty much the only people that went on it.

Felt a bit cuntish as some of these people have problems that they need help with, but I don't want any of it shitting up my time, and an internet forum with people that you don't really know is the wrong fucking place place to look for help.

Era is the last place you should be asking for help from given the lunatics that inhabit the place. Just being there and seeing their constant warped view of reality on pretty much anything is enough to make it worse on someone who already has mental health issues.

amazing that their current Dem Primary OT title is a joke that minimizes Native American concerns. i dont really get it, is it just simple plain old ironic racism, where people think they are so liberal that they can simply shit from their mouths and people will think it's flowers?

You should check out the Mental Health thread for more people like that, specifically, Stan.Marsh and Yagujubei (Don't know the specific name).

Pretty much every post is a ''I am miserable and i want to die'' post, and despite people offering advice, that's the same answer they are getting. I can imagine that this can be really grating on people. They actually need to put those thoughts in a spoiler, too.

I don't throw them on an ignore list, but like the Gender Studies guy, i don't think essentially re-posting the same depressive ''Life is pain'' shtick over and over helps anyone. If you don't want to get any help and think all is lost, why keep on telling others how fucked your life is day in day out? Get help then instead of moping like that.

Wouldn't have been me. I found the ignore function a bit petty to be honest.

I had no problem witnessing all the shit people would spout out, but I have no time for depression/suicidal posts.

Oh, and the one guy that defended beating his kids. Had to put him on there becuase I would have broke the cunts fucking neck otherwise.
