I've been meaning to post in here I lapsed my participation.
I bought a couple end of year gifts, and small items (Isaac + Cave Story) that I didn't log. I'm still *mostly* purchasing a heck of a lot less than I was. But I can no longer point to this specifically since it's clear my general spending patterns changed as a result of conscious effort after GOG's failure to address concerns.
I also had planned to say, "eh, whatever, not worth remaining as list and drop me to just supporter since I'm clearly not a total boycotter"... But the moderation here has gotten worse and worse in months. I keep getting targeted for ridiculous things (like using the proverb "a fool and his money are soon parted" in response to someone wondering if they might have a chance of losing access to their Blizzard rentals after the Microsoft acquisition finalizes). While other outright anti-human, hostile-to-everything, always-trolling posters (I won't name names, but I also don't speak Magyar to know if the name has some meaning to it either) continue to pollute the forums everywhere with their incessant toxicity.
So I guess I'll just continue mostly focusing on what I have with the more-sparing-than-previously purchases. I can't make effort to do per-item logs (especially in the negative) anymore however. GOG continues not to explain what happened with Hitman or make efforts to fix things where they can (like tackling the DRM that is on here), and I guess I can add subpar moderation [which is part of their general poor communications] to the pile I didn't have stacked up before.
ALSO "hi" to the moderators who surely are following me closely because I've called them out on their pro-DRM crap before.
Yeah they tend to do that; had the target on me a while back.
My 'friends account' however had found 'a solution'.
The fact of the matter is true moderation takes time and effort, they can't follow everyone and if you work under the premise that whatever topic is not buried a screen of general forums in won't get much facetime, you can work to either bury or obfuscate.
I suggest applying some simile` into binary as a messaging cross reference with a decoding step alluded to.
It will take them precious brain time and effort and that will hamper their efforts exponentially with the people doing it; and with a 'friends account' having tried it; you can gauge the ineffectiveness of moderation to properly adapt.
You see for your fool and his money statement you could of wrote unintellectual capital bifurcation; put it into binary as "01110101 01101110 01101001 01101110 01110100 01100101 01101100 01101100 01100101 01100011 01110100 01110101 01100001 01101100 00100000 01100011 01100001 01110000 01101001 01110100 01100001 01101100 00100000 01100010 01101001 01100110 01110101 01110010 01100011 01100001 01110100 01101001 01101111 01101110"; then enhance it by encrypting with the decoder ring style 'bephabet' suggestion.
So it would then be "01110110 01101111 01101010 01101111 01110101 01100110 01101101 01101101 01100110 01100100 01110101 01110110 01100010 01101101 00100000 01100100 01100010 01110001 01101010 01110101 01100010 01101101 00100000 01100011 01101010 01100111 01110110 01110011 01100100 01100010 01110101 01101010 01110000 01101111".
So people would use a standard google binary translator to get "vojoufmmfduvbm dbqjubm cjgvsdbujpo" figure out it has been alphabet shifted by one letter anduse (https://www.boxentriq.com/code-breaking/caesar-cipher
) as an example to get the prior message 'unintellectual capital bifurcation'; which with some simple mental hoops is dumb money parting or a fool and his money are soon parted.
Remember only you can prevent '01111010 01110100 01110011 01100111 01101110 01110001 01101000 01110011 01111000 00100000 01100010 01100100 01101101 01110010 01101110 01110001 01110010 01100111 01101000 01101111'
