Ain't here to please your bitch ass. Nor will I grovel to anyone. If that's what you expect, ban me again.
Thanks but being a little humble never hurt anyone, don’t give a shit wether you stay or go we were doing fine without you.
If you want to participate without being too much of Ahole your welcome to stay but like I pointed out your not doing so hot. With the way your going I give it a week before your perma banned again.

Dude, take a chill pill please. Generally speaking asking for a ban just after being unbanned is not a wise move.

Given the way you went out with that post I think it is understandable that people would give you a few lumps when you came back. Believe it or not, despite the ribbing you are getting most people here genuinely are cool with you being back as long as you genuinely want to be here and contribute to discussions honestly.

I don't think most people are expecting you to fall to your knees begging for forgiveness but a little self reflection and honest introspection goes a long way.

You are not the first person to come back to GAF after leaving for ResetEra, most rejoin the community without much hard feelings or grudges and become contributing members of the community, others don't adjust too well as their window for what is "normal" has been so twisted over time that suddenly seeing differences of opinion being discussed without any period of adjustment is like suddenly hitting a brick wall at 100mph. Those people don't last long.

What I'm trying to say is, just be cool and don't let your ego get the better of you, take your lumps and come out the other side better for it. Most of us would prefer that you weren't banned and were able to turn it around and become a solid member of the community.

I had a direct convo with the site owner who asked me directly why I came back.

Two threads are currently going on my return where I'm being dunked on endlessly, in my honor.

I'm good on the humble piece. Let the countdown begin

Me too.

I didnt come here to change my fuckery. I came to prove that either it's more acceptable here for discourse or it isnt.
I can't discourse with known misogynists. Good luck to you bigot!

No but for real why the hell would you legit post on Ree? Did they give you progressive points? Did you pass the purity tests? Are you voting Warren?

Me, when I checked my email this morning 🤣
Before the mental breakdown that created Resetera, I was nine years in and was still a junior member. Most of the time I either saw my thoughts written down and didn't like replying with "this" or "agreed", so I didn't post at all. Then I was afraid to post, because I thought I would get banned. I had a close call with @beseda, I think it was.

Then the crazies left and, after a time, I found my voice on here. I enjoyed posting. I still do. Everyone here is just looking for a good time. I equated it with hanging out at a bar or tavern.

The cache you have built up over the years is worthless now. You need to start all over again. But then I see that you are treating this like a spurned lover, running back to an old flame. I am still working out in my head what it is you are after. Let's talk about it.

You’re missing the point mate. Remember the old mods protecting his ass all the time before? Well they went to era so it’s only normal for a dog to follow his owner

Calm your man tits. Discourse is open here. Being a dickhead is not.

I couldn’t stand Old Gaf, Bish or Resetera. This place is a fun, relaxed place to have fun with now. But roll back the edginess a bit. Being a dick will get you banned, unless that’s your point coming back.

Understand something about me. And I think EviLore EviLore might get this too.

Despite my blow up post, there are few other member pre-Era that pissed off people more on this site when it came to demanding more diversity of thought, conversation, and letting discussion play out before dogpiled and banning by liberal mod happened.

I dont recall my bannings leading up to the perm, but I spent a lot of time, particularly in political threads winding up shitty liberals because I dared to try and keep them honest.

So I'm not concerned with all that. Otherwise my ban would probably not have been overturned, at least that's what I gather.

The alternative is shitty convo with shitty people on twitter.

The seeming inability to let a discussion play out was definitely one of the things that most frustrated me about Era and GAF immediately before the implosion. It really got ridiculous on Era 2018 and beyond when threads would constantly get closed because a random mod deemed that they would be not be conducive to "productive" discussion.

I'd rather pull my entrails out through my eye sockets, though I do enjoy the thought of having Reset Era know I'm posting here out of spite, knowing theyd call anything alt right if it doesnt support centrism
But they love to post that Martin Luther King Jr image talking about white centrists!

It was my primary complaint in my ban thread. So you cunts crying about the cringe in that post are only mad because I dared to praise Halo 5, are already taking advantage of the changes that came from that whole drama.

Era, ironically, started out with a basic set of rules that tried to allow it. There were more warnings handed out to try and educated before bans, and conversation was more open with a "good faith rule". I saw more moderation based on that rule than anything else. Then lately, it just reverted back to ban-on-site on even just the most mundane things.

Even the person who tried to defend me who tried to articulate what I said, caught a laughable ban.

Theres no discussion to be had there. Just egg shells and tip toes.

Asshole, you called for EviLore EviLore to sell his websight in the same post. The Halo 5 stuff was a joke.

Think on this, if the crazies stayed here, you would be banned just the same. Only with nowhere to go after, maybe twitter, in hopes that your former "friends" would see you in all of your self-righteous glory.

I'm a Sanders supporter. That's why I wasnt welcome, especially in PoliEra where only moderates and identity voters reside.

One of the posters dead-ass took a policy test, was told he more politically aligns with Bernie, and then said "But I support Warren for other reasons, it just is what it is"

What's most funny is that political threads outside of Poliera were very different.

Aside from GAF burning down it's where a majority of the conversation went.

And no , the only progressive points being given out there were from me. That place is filled with Moderates who dont five a shit about policy, but cry about how "progressive they are."

And any challenge to their stance would always inevitably progress into a "Ohhhh REALLY so what you're saying is you're a ____ist!?"

If the purity test was supporting any of the field other than like 3, I failed miserably.

A strongly worded post in a reactionary time, you say?

Who'd have thought?
Discourse takes two parties. If one is going in like an asshole you won’t get good discourse.
I respond in kind. If the shit at me is allowed, surely the reprisal is warranted.

Fascinating.
Poliera mainly. OT is a little more spread out, thought youd never see a republican post there unless they knowingly or unknowingly are ready to get dragged at the very minimum.

Its amazing to see all the YAS QUEENS coming out for fucking Nancy Pelosi or Blue Dogs like Joe Manchin. For folks who want an awful lot of progress, they're totally cool with waiting incrementally for a few more decades for it.

And just how far left do you suppose I am? I'm "let's put the Overton window in a more reasonable place" left. Not "means of production" left lol

Oh that? I was there for that. That "incident" proves that that website is trash when even trying to mitigate even the most basic controversy. I didnt know you were talking Hobbes lol

For such a tolerant site, they sat for nearly a full day letting a fire burn in its trans community while they tried to fix it all behind the scenes.

That all sounds good. But why do you consider them fake progressives? Is it because they say one thing and believe another?

How did you feel about that site and the staff putting any PoC or LGBT member above other members?

Why do you consider yourself a "real" progressive and why should we even believe you when you said you are just trying to troll?

I had a good laugh, but he makes some sense, from a governance perspective.

Reset will get behind people like Clinton, who was shoveling in money from Wall Street, and had to dragged kicking and screaming to accept some of the basic Bernie positions.

For all the big talk about supporting progressivism, they do sell it out at opportune times, usually based on social or identity politics agendas. A female president was more important than, for example, a truly progressive one.

They co-opt the progressive stance while shitting on anything or anyone that would dare to present progressive solutions.

If you were here in Hillary-ville in 2016, its basically that.

As for their moderation picks. I dont give a shit who they pick. Just understand what's needed and follow guidelines. A lot of them dont, and that's straight from one of the people who claims to have wrote those guidelines at the site's creation.

They took a bunch of prominent dumbasses from GAF who had no fucking business being mods.

Also, I'm not here to "troll" shit post maybe. But not troll. I can do that on Twitter.

One dude literally told me that policy wise, he aligns most with Sanders, but he supports Warren for "other reasons" lol
The silent fight between poliera and socialismera is amazing. I actually agree with op tho that era focuses on mostly identity bs over who has the best policies but as a leftist I can say that other leftists are full of shit
The silence is deliberate because they were banning people for it. Two of my more recent bans were for "cross-community fighting" because fuck you if you dare to pop the bubble and fucking debate the issues in a primary lmao.

They said "because members felt like they couldnt post in these communities and it made posters feel uneasy"

Their actual words.

Hey man, welcome back.

There were more warnings handed out to try and educated before bans, and conversation was more open with a "good faith rule". I saw more moderation based on that rule than anything else.
This actually sounds like how NeoGAF has been running for the last two years or so. The moderators seem pretty good about not just drive-by banning people like they used to here. They can also remove people from individual threads which seems pretty effective. GAF also has a "Ban log" at the bottom of every page so it's easy to see who was banned and (usually) why. Everything is a lot more transparent now.

Anyway, good to have you back.

Fascinating.
On a traditional political spectrum, Resetera is moderate predominantly. They are not moderate in terms of identity politics, but in terms of fiscal policies / economical policies? Sure are. You probably remember the Clinton squadron here? It's not like Clinton was a far left candidate, in fact she was as moderate as moderate gets, dare say she is a neoliberal. Sanders, the actual left wing candidate, was treated like cancer.
