Going by this thread, it's pretty obvious none of you actually came to this place for gaming and only for all the other BS which Gaf has been hated for. Time to go back to the basics.

Like I can't get down with the idea off topic or the community killed gaf because guess what before the Tyler shit went down neogaf was still running neogaf , neogaf died because you evilore f*****-up in didn't own up to your mistakes. Don't be a coward and blame something else.

Things that got you banned on Libgaf:

I think abortion is murder because a baby in the womb has a heartbeat and it’s own DNA.
Anyone who voted democrat is worthless



Things that were praised and allowed to be posted on Libgaf:
“Fuck white people”
“If you voted republican you’re worthless and deserve to die”

I’d link the threads but apparently all evidence is wiped.

You deserve each other libtards.

Leadership on this forum has been just terrible. Between this and the way you all handled the Amirox situation, you’ve proven enough that you simply aren’t fit for this anymore.

This was a long time coming.

What is this about? Like evilore not owing up to his mistake he's the reason why I GAF died not because of off topic or the community.

Whatever mistakes Tyler has or hasn't made isn't my business. Gaf died (temporarily) because the inmates started running the asylum. If Tyler restores a fair and balanced order, I'm all for giving the site another chance. I all but quit reading and posting here because of the complete insanity that started a few years back and intensified during the election season.

According to OP it'll be back after it's been a few weeks with a new focus on non religious, non political stuff.

NaNoWriMo was responsible for well over 1.5 million words wrote a year. That this shit happened before November sucks so hard. Especially that Cyan was a great moderator of that project. Can anyone anywhere hook me up with Cyan's social medias?

If nothing else no off topic will dramatically reduce my stress. I won’t have to read about how the world is doomed every two days and panic over it.


I’m still not sure if I’m fully back but honestly I have a hard time mourning off topic.

For how little time it’s gone anyway.

"Let's be more transparent by removing any remaining semblance of transparency."

Nobody is buying what you're selling. Respect is earned.

Now mods can abuse their power even more thanks to anonymity. Amazing. Though I guess whoever gets brought on will be a target seeing as they're siding with Evilore.

Banning discussion of politics is a logical and rational response to an allegation of sexual assault. Linking the two makes perfect sense.

I used to adore the gaming discussion around here but as of late politics has been seeping into every single discussion thread. If we can get back to the basics and just have fun and talk games I'm so down. I have enough shit I deal with in real life that when I come online to talk about games the last thing I want to do is get stressed out with political discussion. Welcome back btw.

This is sad. If Evilore is innocent you guys have just ruined someone's livelyhood/life.

Atleast wait until all the facts are out there.
MULTIPLE witnesses have came out against him for the ass grabbing incident not long ago. Dude had a well documented sexual predator history with multiple witnesses. They just don't post at GAF for obvious reasons.

Evilore,

Your mod team was more than happy to throw you under the bus with no evidence or collaboration from someone else whatsoever just because of a fucking facebook post. .

They threw us all under the bus.

This place was supposed to be a heck of a lot more than 1 person.

I'm glad you came out and gave a statement. I appreciate the explanation. I enjoy neogaf and I explore the forum on a daily basis.would you be speaking to a lawyer? Defamation? Or anything?

The move to deny any sort of political or social commentary in Off-topic is interesting. I think it's a radical move and unnecessary. EviLore, the issue with GAF is that yourself and the moderation team MADE this site a political front.

We all have our political views, that's fine, but by doing things such as going on Twitter to pledge GAF's support of the Paris Agreement, by actively snuffing out dissent by any political/social view that skewed towards the right, you created this issue yourselves. There can be a balance, and I don't think ruling out any political discussion will teach any lessons.

Furthermore, I'm not sure how this came about as a response to accusations of sexual assault. It's as if anything that could remotely lead to this event being bubbled up again in day-to-day discourse, such as feminism, sexual harassment and the like, is being actively blocked. Not cool.

I say this as someone who comes to GAF mostly for the gaming. Discussions in Off-topic are/were difficult because it was the definition of the hivemind that GAF swears doesn't exist on these boards. I consider myself liberal, and even I got into my fair share of heated arguments on Off-topic because of this.

A few days before the site shut down someone tried to harness the Twitter hate sphere that routinely threatens to murder someone and aimed it at the wrong person.

These "harassment is bad" people are perfectly fine with that behavior. Don't let them fool you.

So you never grabbed a woman's ass in a club? I thought that's what people do when they party?

Can there be gaming while ignoring the meta and real life circumstances which draw us to this hobby in the first place?

GAF being back feels like when the twitch chat has been locked to subcribers only for a very long time and, finally, it gets unlocked, letting everyone post again

we back ;_;

edit: time to read that OP!! :eek:

Great to have GAF back and it is great that GAF is returning to it's roots. I come here for the video game chat it is my number one source of news and reviews of games.

Whilst I understand that Off Topic will return in a limited way I really do hope we get sections were we can discuss TV/Films.

I personally do not care what happened outside of this board, it is really none of my business. I just want to get back to talking about games and TV shows.

Tyler making the same pivot The Escapist did and going after the right wing users because they clearly support sexual assault, judging by their chosen President.

Hi.

An allegation of sexual misconduct has been made against me by an ex. It's not true, the individual making the accusation isn't credible, the story doesn't reconcile logically with the facts, and there's plenty of evidence and witnesses to corroborate that. It'll be a process.

So there were witnesses who saw you NOT get into the shower?

You know what else there’s plenty of evidence of? You grabbing women’s asses and leaking revenge porn. Asking people to believe you, given your track record, is quite a leap of faith. It would almost be admirable if it weren’t entirely driven by your ego.

Since that whole mess, lasting from Friday morning through Saturday, before we formally went offline for maintenance and repair and restructure, we've just been trying to figure out the best course of action for NeoGAF going forward. And as stories began being published by various outlets, I issued some comments to the press, since everything coming out was proving to be sensationalized, opportunist, and unprofessional.

Well, I’m glad we got to the real meat of the problem: the sensationalized, opportunist, and unprofessional media outlets reporting on your third allegation of being a pervert. Sounds an AWFUL lot like you’re crying “FAKE NEWS!” to me.

I await my ban. I’m sure each ban makes you feel a little bit bigger, so you’re welcome for the ego boost!

I'm not defending what EviLore allegedly did. I am saying that in my 4+ years of posting here I have seen GAF change a lot for the worse and I think leaving politics out is a good move to rebuild GAF into the great place it once was. Whether or not EviLore remains the owner is his own decision to make. I personally feel like GAF is bigger than EviLore's private life, and can still flourish if handled properly.

Politics informs everything we do. Running from it just burying your head in the sand.

No. Evilore ruined it by trying to have sex with a woman against her will then acting like a child when it came out. Sorry.

The good news is you can go to the new spin off forum if you'd like to continue dog piling and witch hunting anyone to the right of Elizabeth Warren

If nothing else, this has been a fascinating chain of events to follow.

Personally I'm kind of shocked by the whole explosion. I can only speak for myself when I say that nothing that has been claimed changes my opinion of Evilore one bit.
