Well now that Johan is unbanned, Terran is technically an alt, right? Alt right! Hah. Sorry.

I actually didn't know alts were against the rules.

I forgot about Anenome. Where did that guy go anyway?

Who was the weird guy with the anime character avatar that said all kinds of weird things all the time. What happened to that guy?

Anyway, my point is, if you're going to engage with someone who isn't going to engage with you in a civil direct way, and you WANT a civil, direct conversation, look elsewhere. Obviously that person isn't going to provide the social element you're looking for.

Maven, I don't think Booda is going to give you the conversation you're looking for. I think his thing is being hostile until you get angry or frustrated about it, so he can call you a snowflake and tell you to go back to your safe space.

I don't know why we should take someone posting in bad faith and who has slotted me into their Other / Enemy box seriously.

Remember, the only reason they even chime in is to see me gone. It's out in the open now.

My mistake was treating Booda for a moment like another person.

Reminds me of Sartre:

"Never believe that anti-Semites are completely unaware of the absurdity of their replies. They know that their remarks are frivolous, open to challenge. But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. The anti-Semites have the right to play. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutor. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert."

Some would read that as a warning. I imagine the others here see it as a rallying cry of some sort for their tribal games.

Just as an aside, for whatever it's worth. In my really limited frame of experience, the people who are the most hostile online are usually compensating. They tend to be really frustrated, angry people who have no outlet. They can't get away with acting that way in the real world because they'd get their ass kicked. They're usually smaller physically, the least intimidating kind of person, but really need that outlet to unload on someone. Part of the reason they need that outlet is the insecurity of being so meek, and feeling so powerless in the real world. They're typically a "beta male" type, where the internet gives them a "safe space" to try to finally impose some will. It's the easiest thing in the world to ignore. Just don't feel bad for them. They'll figure things out. Or not.

Back to reddit I imagine, to hit on some more 16 year old girls and spout his anarchist shit where people wouldn't call him out on his double speak and stupidity is my guess. It's also interesting that Maven attacking people's opinions is civil, but giving him shit for that, isn't. Interesting narrative there. He likely thought EVAv was like the rest of gaming sites out there where those on the left can easily silence people they disagree with, didn't work out too well for him.

Good Sarte quote there, Maven. I like that one. Except...if you know this is the tactic, who's the bigger fool for continuing to engage, right? But if spec and others are really trying to see you gone, and you know they are, then you can easily disregard. Talk to people you enjoy talking to. Ignore the rest. Are you getting value out of being here. Do you enjoy any element of it?

Well, to be fair spec, it does SEEM like Maven is trying to be somewhat civil. But yah, there should be no banning here. Maven is a big boy. If he isn't getting what he wants socially, he can always pick up his ball and go home. I've considered it several times. It's just a choice. If you aren't getting what you want here, then don't be here I guess. Or be selective about who/when you engage with anyone here.

I don't know. This is turning silly. I'm on vacation. What the fuck am I doing with my life...I'm going to buy beer and I'm out of cat food. I don't eat cat food. My cat does.

Sometimes I wonder where they went.

PsPFreak
Spectralthunder
Sucicidal Shizuru (or something like that)
Bean
The two Anemone's which were spelled slightly different.
akuma
That's a I can remember right now.

Same here. A bunch of long time regulars seemed to vanish all around the same time.

Oh, what about the guy who calls himself the Hong Kong playboy or whatever. Had a picture of a doorway open with some blood in the doorway. Haven't seen that guy in a while either.

And it's rare I see that dev from Germany with the picture of the combed hair. Can't remember his name either. I want to say chuck e cheese, but i know that's not correct. I actually liked the input of the german dev, despite his bad taste in games. (Loves the PSV, hates the Switch. Get outa here. Nintendo Power).

I wonder how I couldn't see before that for some people, front page posts aren't information but new targets in a culture war to attack.

The only apology I will offer is for having the wherewithall to suggest some rudimentary community management practices, such as muzzling toxic accounts. But I get it, this is a free-for-all.

A ban is seldom ever required for anything but the most extreme. Threats against someone's life, maybe. There are muting abilities, and the ability to just not respond. I think it's important that you don't have a few people deciding what is acceptable social behavior. Let everyone decide through who they interact with. Natural social consequence. It's better than having just a few people decide what is appropriate or not.

The irony of someone wishing others silenced so that he can have his own circle jerk. Classic!

Loved the first, will likely enjoy this one a ton. I am not the biggest fan of Danny Divito but I think the Rock doing Danny Divito will... Rock.

p.s. you are all idiots for letting the trolls get your goat. Obvious troll was obvious.

Anyone with a half functioning brain cell, a working funny bone, and even a spark of life in them enjoyed the recent Jumanji. Only the soul-less didn't like it.

I'm fully supportive of people being able to use the ignore/mute feature. But I still think it's funny when they do.

I've found it to be accurate in my limited experience, but hey... *shrug* I'm not saying its absolute truth. Just an opinion

Fair enough. I thought you were just sort of reverse trolling in a "One to grow on" sort of way. But to each his own.
