Is it still around? Wink

Absolutely nothing is at stake here, I want to talk about dumb culture stuff instead.

Duck Dynasty is a pretty good show.
Seriously? I can't stand that show. I hate all of those type of shows too. I would group it in the same category as keeping up with the kardashians.

MUSINGS

I've always thought that most of the bans I've witnessed were completely unnecessary.
But that's only before I realize that a tigs account isn't that big a deal. Life goes on. It's really nothing more than a slap on the hand depending on your perspective.
I mean... I get it, allowing free speech and all that is nice, but there's no need for words that would hurt anyone's feelings. I understand the need to protect the safety of the many or whatever you'd call it.
which is why it bugs me that some mods are jerkholes to people. why are banable people banning people? Why are they actually banning? If it's to protect someone from being hurt, then why are they arseholes? Is it simply the joy of using ones elected power?

I can't really judge sexists. I've thought incorrectly about a ton of subjects.
I think it's really a matter of lack of personal experience and trying protecting our comfort. If someone's not comfortable with the notion of girls being deeper than pieces of meat (because that means it would require more than a sex drive to have a good relationship or something), that's fine. I know the truth. I'll give em time to experience the reality of their ignorance. Eventually life smacks us all right in the denial.

I'm in a pretty zen state right now because I can smell coconut shrimp baking in the oven.

yeah i don't think anyone has been permanently banned for being a scumbag. most of the people who've been permabanned were super disruptive and spread their shit everywhere. (eg antymatter, and uh... idk. antymatter.) the only thing that comes close is people leaving over being offended after being called on their shit, eg jwk5

I have run two separate forums over the years (both of them no longer exist). I think that just having the possibility of banning brought up does as much to stop people from being douche bags as actually making an example of somebody and banning them does. Because like you said, what does banning actually do? People will either make an alt account or just move on with their lives.

Also, how do you guys get inspiration for a project? I want to do something bigger than a prototype or a game jam but I have trouble deciding what I am going to commit a few months of my time to Sad

Did I like miss something? Who got banned?

Is there some history I am missing? Who are these famous people you speak of?

Seriously? What is going on?

antymatter get temp banned for writing something homophobic, and then permabanned when he kept making alternate accounts and complaining.

jwk5 left bc people were calling him out for being sexist in a thread about representation of women in videogames. he wasn't even the target of the brunt of it but according to one of his pots he took it really, really personally

Just got an interesting idea for a game. I was inspired to make a quality project after watching Indie Game The Movie and it may actually happen! Speaking of that what did everyone here think of that movie?
