blakstar: What's a Force Luke? And where would one find said item?

"Use the punctuation, tinyE!" :-P
Use the Downloader, Luke. Galaxy is a piece of shit.

Hmmm... I'm not sure whether to assume that you're not using "Downloader" as some kind of euphemism given the following sentence! :-P

Breja: Also, why should GOG want a forum that requires everyone to have thick skin? Do you think a guy randomly insulting patrons at a normal store should avoid being thrown out by security on the grounds of "it's not my fault those people have such thin skin"?
You're talking about the same community that downvotes and harasses a guy daily for copying/pasting news from infowars in his own dedicated thread. This community really does have an over-sensitivity/control problem which has nothing to do with actual troublemakers like the one(s) you're referring to.

zeogold: The best way I can summarize is that this became a wild west where anybody could say and do whatever the heck they wanted, and by some amazing surprise, it turned out that building an area with less rules than 4chan leads to a place that's just as toxic.
My surprise has not been affected by your explanation. You would think the demographic wouldn't take the ramblings of strangers so negatively. :P

From zero rules to tl;dr. Nice job. I love the part where he's open to feedback but nothing will change. Very gogesque.

Wait, is "gogesque" "appropriate language"? I mean, it's not really a word. Perhaps I'm not checking my privilege to use words as a white heterosexual male hard enough. What if grammar nazis get offended? Wait, wait, I just said "nazi"...please don't ban me, I have games here... :(

I like how upon seeing that such a thing as "rules" now exists on a private company's forum you immediately go to crying about how opressed you are as a white, heterosexual male. Really tells a lot about what kind of a man you are, and not in terms of race or sexual orientation.

Well, if you bothered to read instead of whine you'd know that you can now get a ban limited to the forum only.

See, I knew I wasn't checking my privilege hard enough! It's so hard for me. Please teach me to be a better person by saying abusive things to me some more!

Now I'm not sure if you're messing with me, considering it couldn't have went over your head that was a joke. Hey, maybe I should report you? I feel threatened by your attitude. HELP, some guy on the Internet is oppressing me! He's didn't realize something I posted was a joke! Help! Oh wait, perhaps jokes aren't allowed anymore? Along with, you know, most everything else.
Let me guess, you thought this was an autonomous collective.

Just ignore her.

If they want to hang out in a forum where "Fuck off fag" and "Hitler was right" are considered greetings, then they can go do it somewhere else.

Hyperagathon is a girl?

I want her to abuse and offend me.

I have to give you credit Kleetus. Your posts lately are genuinely really funny and clever. :P

I know we'll never be friends but I feel the need to give credit where credit is due, and I mean that.

I'll tell you what I think, because it's apparent you didn't understand it the first time around. In short: the new rules are extremely "wide". Hence my little joke about being banned for using language that wasn't "appropriate". That, and many other rules, are easily interpreted to suit the whims of their enforcers. Personally, I've never found that sort of thing palpable.

Now I'll tell you what you did: you opened with character assassination based on either a genuine misunderstanding or a deliberate one. Then you proceeded to trot out the ridiculous argument that private corporations have the right to do whatever the fuck merely because they're private. It was a bad argument before the rules, and it remains so post them. You then concluded with some casual condescension based on yet another misunderstanding, deliberate or not.

Now tell me, sensei, how many of the new rules did you just break? :)

@tinyE

Bad comedic timing. Or perhaps...ABUSE? Shall I report you? What to do, what to do... :p

Report me.

If you want to have a little tantrum because you aren't getting your way and you think that bitching and moaning and acting like a little brat is going to make things better then go ahead.

Report me, get me kicked, I don't care, just leave me alone.
