I already quoted this in chat a while ago, but I feel it needs to be quoted again.

LMAO Nicks still upset because of the little FB pm message i sent him AFTER he decided to Perma Ban me.
he was never going to reverse his decision whether i FB pm'd him or not. i literally told him "block me, don't give a shit" haha

Replying to Xprimentyl again
I don't understand how anyone takes issue with the reasonable expectation of basic courtesies, least of all putting in the effort to make a nigh 30 minute video about how it's not fair they can't operate otherwise...
That's very obviously not what the video is about. In fact I say "let's assume my ban and all the other strikes on my account are valid".

That's not what I take issue with. I take issue with the inconsistency of letting some users get away with 6 warnings, while others are given two or fewer.

...or that everyone should be equally "guilty" despite the vast gulf of difference between the extremes of individual behaviors.
Yes, there is a gulf of difference between the extremes of individual behaviors. I agree.

Some users are questioning the race of another user, even going so far as to call them a "house n_____", an uncle tom, or an uncle ruckus.
Some users say that they genuinely don't care if they get banned and rack up 6 warnings.

Others get banned without a warning, let alone 3.

Hah, yeah, I remember that. Also whoops for leaving epyc wynn out of the video, but his was a zero-tolerance offense anyway.

Maybe he'll tell some of them to get the hell over here so we can have more people to argue with.

Profile posts are also subject for a ban. @Epyc Wynn was banned under an alternative alias on v2 over a profile post including the word gamergate.


Its okay to share identifying information of others on the escapist.
All the mods there wouldn't lift a finger over it. Tells you all you need to know of them.
I was banned exclusively for the reason of using the word gamergate. Not how it was used, not in addition to other issues, not in the context of it being me or it being used in some offensive way -just using the word gamergate.

Anyone who uses the word 'gamergate' in a post on the Escapist will be immediately permabanned regardless of their posting history on that site.

Feel free to test this if you don't believe me. This is their actual fucking retarded rules. The Escapist can go fuck itself and Yahtzee's a little bitch for standing by such a shitty site.

Aww yeah, @Drathnoxis over there spitting facts and disproving people.
Fun fact: @Drathnoxis is the only Escapist user I mildly respect. @bluegate is cool, but Drathnoxis actually spits some hot fire.

Not true:



But we already know the moderation is inconsistent. It's not a surprise that some people get away with things that others don't.

Your forum has to be pretty bad for your own core users to form their own dedicated forum that ridicules said forum.
And here we are.

Sort of true? Sanctuary was started a LONG time ago and originally had nothing to do with the Escapist. The purpose of the site didn't and still doesn't have anything to do with it either, though a TON of our regular users are from there admittedly because I took them in when the Escapist was really starting to go to shit to replace the toxic (I don't use that word lightly) fuckers that used to be here.
