Like most millennial "journalists", this guy seems to think that rewriting articles from other websites and trawling Reddit threads counts as "research".

There’s zero chance Hogwarts gets fair reviews. Sites like Gamespot and Gamesradar are guaranteed to give it a bad score based on the loons there and the articles they’ve written on it.

Best part is that it won't matter. I hope they all review it badly and it still sells well. Better yet, I hope it's a Forspoken situation where idiots are buying a bad game to "own the *insert derogatory term here*".

No fucking TERF actually holds up to the F in TERF. None of them. And most are ableist racist sexists on top of that. That's why people have started calling them TERs nowadays. FARTs (feminist-appropriating radical transphobes) sadly didn't catch on.

Since it was a topic earlier, Mark addressed him liking Rowling’s tweet (he also doesn’t follow her anymore according to the “Followers You Know” tab):

I'm still hesitant since it feels like there are a few holes in that explanation, but this does let me breathe just slightly easier. I know, place your heroes' necks on the chopping block and all, but dammit I like Mark and I wanna believe.

Quote from: RaspberryRhythm, post: 100185790, member: 130504
It makes a decentish amount of sense that he would have likely seen JK's tweet, and not India's. I'm presuming JK's reach is (unfortunately) far vaster.

And since it was a screenshot and not a QRT, liking that, instead of going and searching out India's account and liking her tweet, does kinda make sense.

Him making the very definitive statement that he believes human rights are for everyone regardless of gender identity makes me hopeful.

But... He's on some thin ice.

Actual psychopaths

mark has a history of hate going back to when he deadnamed his own transitioned father to his face.

Mark is cool imo. Just like RotJ when it seems Luke might be turning but then nah, he snaps back and yeets Palpatine into the bin. Can understand some being wobbly but man has been out there tweeting and liking stuff openly and showing explicit support for trans peeps with no prompt for awhile now. Can't see him doing a hard pivot personally, but perhaps I'm naive.

Stand down everyone. Nothing to see here. Mark is cool. Let's all go back to scouring Twitter for the next hate target please.

ngl i love the idea of having a bunch of trans women entering the room, literally swinging their dicks around and telling the radfems that "we are the real feminists now, bitches"  :lol

Earth. Hitler. 1938.

The Klingon moon Praxis has recently exploded and as a result irreparably damaged the atmosphere of planet Qo'noS, the Klingon homeworld; a disaster extreme enough to require nothing less than a planetwide evacuation of the entire population. Several influential voices in the Federation, Mister Spock included have announced this catastrophe as an opportunity to offer the Klingons Federation aid and lay the groundwork for a lasting peace with the Klingon Empire; others however are vehemently opposed and see this incident as an opportunity to act somewhat less compassionately.

Gorkon, the chancellor of the Klingon High Council arrives aboard the Enterprise with his staff to sit a dinner with Captain Kirk and his officers. Tension has a seat at the dinner table with topics of discussion being aired that were only ever going to create friction between the two parties.

Is this something about bad praxis?

2) very classy with the name calling like 'dick nose' . If some of you bothered to observe, he pulled up his mask to cover his nose before talking to Majors. It slid down as he was talking. It's an Ill fitted mask - but again, the usual overreaction and pitchfork waving is out in full force

Big Props to Majors and his publicist for stepping in, but the vitriol being thrown at the admin guy is just embarassing

If shit was still private they wouldn’t have cared, weird how that works with big corporation mentality.
Ezra hasn't been charged with anything serious? The possible child endangerment is the big thing but not like (far as we know) the police have charged them with anything.Hell have they even investigated them? They are a loose canon and will probably be cut form the movies anyways id assume in the end.

Plus what do you want them to do exactly cancel the 200 million dollar movie? Actually thinking on it I wonder if AI technology etc can be used for these cases...

Thank you. That's 100% a thing that happened and it's getting legitimately obnoxious to hear folks acting like you're crazy for even suggesting it. Like ok you didn't experience this, doesn't mean it's the same for everyone lol
Finally! You found two people that didn’t necessarily share the same sentiment but were in the ballpark so you were correct!! The driving consensus of this incredibly unpopular game was that Jack and the game itself were awesome and cool, but ironically, which turned into people really thinking it was awesome and cool because they had surpassed ironically thinking it was awesome and cool, so everyone thought the game was awesome and cool non-ironically. But they also (ironically?) didn’t buy the game.

The most frustrating thing about it is that it's extremely difficult to determine if these people are arguing in bad faith or are just complete morons.

Ultimately the outcome is the same but it's still a frustrating experience. The fact to these people it seems you can't call someone a Nazi unless they explicitly call themselves a Nazi is infuriating.

I can understand that bigots often hide what they are about, but you all go into the opposite extreme trying to suss out the "hidden" Nazis based purely on the weakest and thinnest of "evidence." How's that any better than witch hunting?

It’s a rule at this point. No matter what the situation, ERA Mod Leadership makes it worse.

In this case, there’s the obvious where Dubs has given Trans Era not one, but two scalps for big anticipated games that won’t be allowed to discuss. The worse decision he made was saying, ‘no commentary at all, anywhere, anytime’.

There is zero chance Trans Era will be able to keep their mouth shut about this game, regardless of whether it performs well financially and/or functionally. Is he going to start warning or banning the negative meta commentary coming in? If he doesn’t, it’s yet another capitulation to them that’s arguably worse than the ban is. Is there any point Dubs will stand by his line on the sand?

And more, if he does hold a hardline, will it lead to a revolt from the other ERA modship because they don’t seem all that keen with B-Solomons choice of a complete ban. They want to be able to talk shit about the game.

Actually, what's infuriating to this person is that the word "nazi" carries absolutely no weight whatsoever anymore.  And calling someone that elicits no response that accords to their indignance.    Nobody actually believes that these people care at all and are holding back from calling their enemies nazis because those enemies don't want to be labeled one - and that the frustration from not being able to call people that word is just so bad.  They're frustrated that the word is inert.

The funniest thing is the mods are going to get hammered with reports the moment anyone from Trans ree posts about Hogwarts. B.Dubs has literally created an open season on them.

If the game is hot shit they'll probably keep the ban and make everyone pretend it doesn't exist (on the outside chance its an Elden Ring level hit, most of the forum will have to consoom anyway, and I don't think even reset era could ban half of their userbase in hours/days).

If its a Saint's Row level stinker I think they'll drop the ban and allow people to gloat.

They are well on their way to repeat this with the word 'genocide'. When you feel the need to throw out the word 'genocide' because people are playing a Harry Potter video game, maybe consider you're being hyperbolic and lost the plot.

At this point being an actual Nazi is less problematic than being a TERF BITCH JK ROWLING.

If you're an actual Nazi there's a decent chance you can apply for a free tank.

:cop User Banned (2 Weeks): Concern trolling and metacommentary
Quote from:  Gibbo
People here being embarrassing as usual

1) the guy was probably some low level guy just doing his job. Could he have handled it better? Yes for sure. Was he being grossly impolite? No.

2) very classy with the name calling like 'dick nose' . If some of you bothered to observe, he pulled up his mask to cover his nose before talking to Majors. It slid down as he was talking. It's an Ill fitted mask - but again, the usual overreaction and pitchfork waving is out in full force

Big Props to Majors and his publicist for stepping in, but the vitriol being thrown at the admin guy is just embarassing

Someone should ask if majors is juicing.

It's all fake. All the apologies are fake. All the demands for apologies are fake. All the acceptances of apologies are fake.

What it's about is shaming people into submission and those people who are shamed showing the correct deference to those in power to ensure they can be trusted to now publicly adopt the orthodoxy of the cult.

Just too funny that this is what got him, complaining about someone callously throwing out the word genocide, and not when he wanted to shotgun people, but it fits perfectly to RE's idiotic moderation

In this case, there’s the obvious where Dubs has given Trans Era not one, but two scalps for big anticipated games that won’t be allowed to discuss. The worse decision he made was saying, ‘no commentary at all, anywhere, anytime’.

There is zero chance Trans Era will be able to keep their mouth shut about this game, regardless of whether it performs well financially and/or functionally. Is he going to start warning or banning the negative meta commentary coming in? If he doesn’t, it’s yet another capitulation to them that’s arguably worse than the ban is. Is there any point Dubs will stand by his line on the sand?

And more, if he does hold a hardline, will it lead to a revolt from the other ERA modship because they don’t seem all that keen with B-Solomons choice of a complete ban. They want to be able to talk shit about the game.

The funniest thing is the mods are going to get hammered with reports the moment anyone from Trans ree posts about Hogwarts. B.Dubs has literally created an open season on them.

there's simply no way he wont allow the crazies to shit all over hogwarts, be it in a special thread, the generic rowling hate session thread or wherever they damned well please.
They will want to shit on the game and the genocidal harm it has caused the world, so they will get to do it.

Anyone reporting them will be banned for "concern trolling", and everyone knows it. That's how the mods can get away with letting obvious tos violations slip - members know better than to report a prominent members post. They've been doing it since the beginning too, i was banned once in the early days for reporting some crazy rant about whatever and no doubt my account would be gone now if i ever tried to do it again.

Open season you say? Almost like a state-sponsored genocide maybe?

Have you looked at the old place recently? There’s a whole thread of people gifting copies of HL to people who make the most transphobic Harry Potter meme, and people committing to buy it just to be transphobic.

People who buy this game to support transphobia are just as dumb as the RE crazies. Yeah, buy that game with the pronoun selection and body types to really stick it to the trans.
