What did Kirblar do? Did he play a game from the naughty list?
Concern trolling about Omar's statements. That he couldn't let go of that spilled into multiple threads and eventually led to him making absurd hoop jumping analogies regarding Israel and stuff.

Post that did him in: https://www.resetera.com/threads/rep-ilhan-omar-the-%E2%80%9Chope-and-change%E2%80%9D-offered-by-barack-obama-was-a-mirage.104182/post-18672067

User banned (duration pending): Relativizing and justifying war crimes and the murder of civilians.
Quote
As remember Kirblar, you were the one, YOU WERE THE ONE who brought up arguments like "would you rather the entire Korean peninsula be ruled by Kim Jong Un today" to justify the events that happened and started this particular conversation--those are your words, that you uttered to justify this train of thought, not me or anyone else, but you. Turning that around, I could just as easily ask, "would you rather the entirety of the Gaza Strip and the West Bank continue to be apartheid states ruled inhumanely by tyrants like Benjamin Netanyahu/would you rather Palestine just be entirely absorbed by the Israeli state via decades of illegal settlements until there's nothing left"/etc. If that "would you rather the Korean Peninsula be unified under Pyongyang works to justify the tragic events that happened there, you can't suddenly back out and suddenly claim the same exact logic can't or shouldn't be used to justify a hypothetical conflict against Israel on the same exact type of grounds. You don't get to have it both ways like that. Either that goes for both, or neither. Either those kind of actions can be justified in those type of ways, or they can't, no matter what. Anything else is just pure hypocrisy at best and an absolutely brazen display of considering certain lives more equal and more worthy of defending in a way that certain other lives aren't and never will be and aren't ever going to be worth the same considerations and luxuries as those other lives at worst.
The Korean war was 70 years ago under extraordinarily different circumstances. Times are different, our available options are different, the geographic locations and relationships are different. Hell, if you haven't noticed, we have a massive in the number people dying as a result of war in the past few decades. Economic and Technological forces have made that possible what wasn't previously, ushering in the least amount of conflict the world has seen.

You do get to have it both ways because the world isn't the 1950s and the two situations are completely radically different. If you can't understand that the options available in the 1950s to the US, South Korean and other UN forces facing a massive incursion of North Korean aligned forces are completely different than the options we have to dealing with an apartheid state in the year 2019, the level of banal reductionism you're descending to amounts to the point of parody, because I refuse to believe that one could just be willing to say something along the lines of "oh well nukes ended the war in Japan why don't we just use them every time" and be totally serious.

Although these ones probably sent him to destruction since he can't ever back down and admit he was ever wrong or said something mistaken:
Quote
Would you rather North Korea have won leading to all of South Korea being ruled by the Kims today? Because that was the trade-off they were measuring it against when North Korea was invading with massive amounts of Chinese support backing them. I'm not saying their decisions were perfect, not worthy of criticism, etc., but to take them out of the context of an ugly, brutal conflict in which eventually pushing the North Korean army out of South Korea eventually led to a world in which 50 million people weren't living under a cruel despot today is to miss the difficulties and ugly nature of the tradeoffs that have to be faced when making these decisions.
Quote
Yes, I am aware of how destructive it was and am still posting that despite it. If North Korea/China never invade, this never happens, but they did, and the question of how to dissuade the North Korean forces when they were being backed by a massive amount of Chinese forces far in excess of their own had no good answers. Turning all of Korea into a totalitarian Chinese vassal state would have been a horrific outcome for the South Koreans. That cruel despot would still be there today because he's not there because of any actions the US took but because the North Korean government exists almost solely at the pleasure of the Chinese government. If they wanted to pressure North Korea to reform, to aid in their development, to help push for reconciliation, they could. But they don't, because they want the buffer state there.

That war is hell is an understatement. It's ugly, horrific, shitty and destructive. And this one was no different- both sides were deliberately targeting and executing the other's supporters within their borders and in captured territory. It comes with unthinkable tradeoffs, horrible choices, and puts people in unenviable situations. And yet it happens because sometimes the cost of letting the other side win is simply too steep to be able to afford.

The mods should really have banned him for getting the timeline of the Korean War so wrong even after being linked to Wikipedia.

There were two invasions by the North Koreans, only the second was a proxy invasion by China. Which China had told the U.S. many many many times how to avoid.

Kirblar has an extensive history of history.

The only thing keeping him afloat is the memory of him being a mod. You need to have done something pedophile-level bad to be permed after being a mod

Let me preface this by saying Kirblar is a dick, but to ban someone for calmly discussing a topic on a discussion forum seems absolutely absurd.

I know this has been said a million times before, but just think about that statement.

Kirblar was banned for stating his opinion and backing it up with measured and considered arguments.

Yet any time a member brings up references to echo chambers, 1984, Animal Farm or Fahrenheit 451, they are told to shut up and are most likely banned themselves.

It's completely absurd that you have a selection of handpicked mods backed up by extremist admins deciding what a whole community must think, feel and say. The most unbelievable thing is that you have 40,000 people still willing to swallow this shit and not protest or boycott the whole thing.

Kirblar was banned for going against the grain. He wasn't wrong about what he said. But still fuck kiblar for his bernie hatred that he's now seemingly taking in.

Nah, Kirblar was banned to make it so the heated threads went away, he was determined to keep bringing it up and fighting everyone over it. Now the Omar story is all but gone from the headlines and he'll be told in the discord to stop bringing it up.

Same with the thread locking, POST IT ALL IN PRIMARIES THREAD method. Sometimes a few prominent eggs get broken for a little while.

Pure BS. This criminal has been banned 3 times this year alone.

Kirblar would be a little more credible as a rugged realpolitik "adult on the board" type if he was actually more cynical about it. But he always end up making the "benevolent" argument without any mention of the more morally dubious pursuit of the nation's interests and preserving your place in the pecking order.

Also that whole cognitive dissonance of getting the vapours at Russian running influence campaigns while always being OK with any form of US actual, literal warfare.

one time my friend was house sitting for his mom so we were going to meet there after he got off work (around 11:30pm) so I got there like 15 minutes earlier than expected but didn't know the exact address was so went to a nearby park and sat in the parking lot. around 5 minutes later a cop pulled up and shined a flashlight in my face, almost blinding me and causing emotional pain. he asked me what I was doing, I explained and he said "oh, well the park is technically closed so you can't be here." then he told me to leave. I was shaking because of how close I came to death at that moment.

Jumanji making almost a billion, so they just pad out the cast harder for the next one:

The film stars Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan, Nick Jonas, and Bobby Cannavale

In January 2019, it was announced that Awkwafina, Danny DeVito and Danny Glover had joined the cast of the film

Today en “Let’s believe the giant corporation even though history tell us they kill studios on regular basis”

https://www.resetera.com/threads/according-to-jason-schreier-making-anthem-was-bioware-idea-ea-actually-gives-the-studios-autonomy-and-more.105408/

EA and Bioware keep repeating this stuff like an abused wife that defends her husband.

How the hell is EA going to bioware and saying "hey why don't you have a service based microtransaction factory?" not pressuring them to make anthem? Schrier directly said their performance was compared to fucking FIFA.  :lol

Is not strange that is always Bungie and BioWare declaring they “made the game they wanted to make” and neither Activision or EA forced their hand? (Even though Bungie needed to buy themselves back and Anthem is a obvious patchwork that is still in beta).

From https://metacouncil.com/threads/epic-game-store-spyware-tracking-and-you.766/, originally from Reddit https://www.reddit.com/r/PhoenixPoint/comments/b0rxdq/epic_game_store_spyware_tracking_and_you/

that stealth forum recruitment drive  :ohyou

aaaaaaaannnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnd locked by sweetfuckall because of "a lack of information or misinformation" :teehee

Butttttttttt BACK with the even more "Wait, wtf? Fuck you Epic" headline, and yet another not-sostealth-forum-recruitment-drive because yes, resetera is fucking shit as its primary purpose as a games forum.

https://www.resetera.com/threads/developing-epic-games-launcher-appears-to-collect-your-steam-friends-play-history.105385/post-18850664

And the saga continues, as resetera.com LLC administrator and Chinese market analyst makes sure the tencent owned epic response is added both to the OP and as a threadmark.

And that response?
 "Yeah, we harvest a bunch of data we have no real right to access without asking before doing it, but it's just to save you some time if you decide you want us to have that data later!"

For sure, but that's not EA going to BioWare and saying "you need to make us a Destiny clone" - it's EA saying "if you want resources, show us how your game is going to make long-term revenue." Huge difference there!
yeah, the latter has a much bigger threat implied :lol

I like all the posts saying that EA is not to blame in anyway or whatever...but one of their jobs upper management is for obstinately is to stop their studios from fucking up.

It's funny reading posts that seem reasonable and thought out until you think about it, like this one:

I think people shit on EA and Activision for the wrong reasons. They aren't corporate suits who force devs to make last years hit game and stuff it with microtransactions. Instead, their problem is that they give zero useful guidance and direction. In theory EA and Activision should both be learning very useful things from their big and small studios and competitors and distilling it info useful info that can help all their companies. Mistakes learned from battlefront 2, what PUBG/Fortnite means for the industry, etc.

Instead both seem like clueless parents who just tell their kids "do whatever man, just be happy (aka make us lots of money)" and when their studios fail miserably they just wash their hands of them.
Activision owns Call of Duty AND Treyarch, Black Ops 4 by any standard hit every single metric they could want while dumping the single player (which can't be monetized as easily) for a battle royale and stuffing it full of microtransactions like the other two multiplayer modes.

Activision ultimately did not own Destiny or Bungie and they were coming up on having to renegotiate a deal that didn't meet a single one of the original goals when it was made ten years ago, so they let Bungie take it.
