Every post I've made on this page of the thread has been replying to people giving excuses as to why this story is suspicious, no big deal, or why we shouldn't be worried about the lack of media interest in this. Someone even said the victim sounded like a crazy person, and another said male victims can't be believed without further investigation. You'd think a moderator would have shown up in this thread by now.

This sounds absolutely disgusting and unhygienic. Poor ideas and concepts deserve to fail. You have to be a special kind of asshole to let something like this even happen or think it's a good idea.
Why is everyone so angry on this forum, geez lol

i can never get over the "antagonizing others" action reason
It's basically punishment for not falling into lockstep.

I got permed with that as the reason because over the course of a week I:

  • Refused to fall for Enzom's race baiting in which he insisted over the course of 6 pages and 2 dozen posts that I was "dismissing black people" and eventually admitted that "I'll never believe you're not lying".
  • Responded to a typically judgemental RedMercury post by suggesting that a dude who told a suicidal poster to fuck off was in no position to take the moral high ground
  • Quoted The Kree's post count back at him. Something he does constantly.

That's fucking it.

The Nation exposed as alt-right GamerGate hive:

Seems like astroturfing.
Quote
From a super quick google: https://mediabiasfactcheck.com/the-nation/

'The Nation endorsed Bernie Sanders for President in 2016. They also have been criticized for being a Pro-Russia publication by both conservatives and liberals. Here is a quote from the right leaning Washington Free Beacon: “The Nation’s modern day Russia coverage has been criticized as too pro-Putin.'


I don't know how unbiased mediabiasfactcheck is, but I am a little skeptical of The Nation in regard to Russia.
Quote
This source doesn't seem to be legit at all
Quote
That source is reaaaaaaly fishy.
Quote
Article comes out downplaying Russia efforts to guide the election not too shortly before the Mueller report is supposed to drop
🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔
Quote
I understand they seem to be progressive / leftist, but my concern is more that they've been criticized for being pro-Russia in particular.
Quote
Why publicize this clearly bad faith article?
Quote
OP, are you posting this because you agree?
Quote
Wow. The Nation huh? Did people here already forget the publications clear bias? Surprised this even got posted by the OP without any response to the known leanings of said pub.

This thread seems to be going nowhere fast and the nature of the editorial doesn’t seem particularly conducive to good discussion, so this thread is closed to further replies.

It's astonishing how myopic he is. I've never seen him make a single post that didn't revolve around race or more specifically racism.

He was accusing me of dismissing black people because I was defending... Chris fucking Rock, and shitting on 2 white dudes saying the n-word. He legit did not no how would handle me not giving up or telling him to fuck off.

They should make a junior only forum like servers for cheaters in multiplayer games. Of course, you can unlock posting privileges on the senior forum with an Era Clear membership.

Prevent juniors from posting until they report 10 posts that result in actioning from the mods. False reports or non-actioned reports reset the counter. Once they pass this, they can progress to the first tier of their posting career: linking to Sony/Nintendo press releases

real talk: kinda glad to see people leaving ree even if it requires them getting banned in the process

ree now reminds me a lot of what gamergate was like on the inside, and it's highly disturbing how cult-like it is tbqh

some of the more casual posters and people on the fringe may not notice it, but a lot of people, especially a lot of posts that show up here, are definitely prime example of "wow this is fucking unsettling"

Isolate yourself from your friends and family if they don't agree with what ree tells you is right (which is ever increasingly extremist and delusional to the point most rational people will look at you funny): check
group reinforcement that *they* are your true friends and you need to just stick with *them*: check
positive reinforcement for "thinking the right thoughts" and extremely negative feedback for not thinking with the group, to the point of warnings/bans: check

there's a lot more at play there, but overall the site has taken such a turn that I don't think they've even realized what they've become, and I don't think they possess the self awareness to ever really grasp it. if it's point out, "oh you're just a troll" and the idea is instantly dismissed bc your support structure (ree) is there to tell you otherwise

& before banana saltdae comes along and yells "ur just mad bc u got banned" I haven't been banned yet, I just actively stopped posting there bc the site is so negative it became bad for my mental health, being around people that are so angry all the time was legitimately affecting me

the real internet hate machine was the internet forum we made fun of all along

I think era are racists.

Of course they are. Believing in the existence of separate human races (aka racial theory) makes you a racist.
I genuinely don't understand why you are so hung up on this line.

The rest of the modern world will continue to operate no matter how much you continue to yell "You're Proving Hitler Right!" whenever someone even mentions race in regards to racial identity/inequality/politics etc.

You need to take off your edge.

Drink, jack off, and/or eat at Taco Bell. Do something.

Sorry for the late reply. While the concept itself (believing in the existence of separate human races makes you racist) is simple enough, most (Americans) seem to have a hard time to grasp it. Keeping this idiocy alive doesn't prove Hitler right, it perpetuates his mental poison [edit: to clarify, I'm using Hitler as a generic term here; he didn't invent racism].
The reason I brought it up more than once in this thread is because of the constant race-nonsense at Resetera. Many of their "prominent" members/mods are indeed incredibly racist. A while ago they actually permed a French member who explained that black Frenchmen generally don't consider themselves African-French, but simply French, which is exactly how it should be.

This issue is the root cause of lots of nonsense that they seem to believe in at Resetera, like "cultural appropriation", "racial identity" and so on. That's why I think it bears repeating.

By that logic, people on resetera are promoting the white supremacist person because they made a thread and had to explain why this is 'such a big deal' and 'problematic'. Also, The Bore is now promoting white supremacy by linking to resetera.  :doge

group reinforcement that *they* are your true friends and you need to just stick with *them*: check
positive reinforcement for "thinking the right thoughts" and extremely negative feedback for not thinking with the group, to the point of warnings/bans: check

there's a lot more at play there, but overall the site has taken such a turn that I don't think they've even realized what they've become, and I don't think they possess the self awareness to ever really grasp it. if it's point out, "oh you're just a troll" and the idea is instantly dismissed bc your support structure (ree) is there to tell you otherwise

& before banana saltdae comes along and yells "ur just mad bc u got banned" I haven't been banned yet, I just actively stopped posting there bc the site is so negative it became bad for my mental health, being around people that are so angry all the time was legitimately affecting me

the real internet hate machine was the internet forum we made fun of all along

Good post. The reason why most remaining members don't notice the insanity is because it developed gradually, while their bubble prevents them from objectively observing the outside world and noticing the discrepancy. For the first couple of months you could have rational discussions on Resetera. Then you were forced to conform (which seems to be an automatic and subconscious process for most) or leave.
And yes, Resetera drags you down and makes you feel bad. Deciding not to post there anymore was a very liberating experience. Anyone who would like to regain a more positive outlook and just feel better in general should just leave that mental prison.

He is clearly doing this to provoke a response from the Liberal Media.

He's constantly using memes from 4chan and saying that was from Reedit, using Ben Shapiro clips, including far-right memes, like memes about Obama...

He's doing this as a part of his war against Media

When are people going to accept he is just another Nazi promoting their hate agenda. No more excuses.

Wait are you people saying he's not a white supremacist or don't sympathize with those motherfukers?

I'm not saying that Pewdiepie as a whole is innocent. He's at best a Naz-sympathizer and at worst a full-blown nazi himself.
these guys get it

He got famous with streaming videogame and got really rich with it. Just like that Ninja guy. I think lots are just jealous and copying others their opinions for having a legit reason to hate him. Some are surely legit against him... most of them are just salty i guess.
I guess repeatedly promoting anti-Semitic and racist videos is cool with you, so fuck you too!
:lol

What hole do people like you crawl out of? It's really strange how posts like these pop up every time there's a thread about something like this.
You probably won't be truthful, but I'm generally curious:
  • Who do you get your marching orders from?
  • Where do you get your marching orders from? GAF? KiwiFarms? KotakuInAction? 4chan? A Discord channel?
  • Are low-effort posts like this satisfying some sort of hazing ritual you need to fulfill to on some other site?
Unironically posting what amounts to a "lul safe space" meme in 2019 is just too much.
