    If you wanna see actual alt-right - go to /pol/ - it's lightyears away from any kind of right wing rhetoric I've seen people banned for on this site

    Stop using this political boogie-man as an excuse for poor moderation. This place isn't too moderated, people get away with reprehensible comments all the time - it's the fact the moderation is so inconsistant and mods don't justify themselves ever

    Surprised it hasn't happened yet tbh
    No you and plenty of others are alt right enough here, especially when you aren't whining or crying about the rules you don't already follow.

    But that? Thats a civil discourse imo.
    There were more adjectives used there. But in any case, if you can't stop yourself from using ad hominem arguments then the discussion has basically ended.
    When people start attacking each other then nothing more will come out of it.

    It's not about saying something harsh to other person and hurting their feelings. It's about the manner in which discussion is done.
    The fact that people admit name calling into "civil discourse" is quite sad. Attack the opinion, never the person.

    I have enough of EA ruining great franchises and studios, forcing DRM and Origin on their games, releasing incomplete games only to sell day-1 DLCs or spill dozens of DLCs, and then saying it, and microtransactions, is what players want, stopping players from giving EA games poor reviews, as well as deflecting complaints with cheap PR tricks.

    I'm not going to buy any game by EA as long as they continue those practices.

    By looking at evidence, which is the very think conspiracy theories avoid.

    No
    Nah nonsense, the ad hominem attack Nonsense, no if an argument is weak or stupid it should be challenged, especially when a lot of it is script and copy pasta, along with suspicious links to discredited sources.

    There is nothing wrong with pointing out a stupid argument is a stupid argument along with the fact from where it came. It might not seem relevant but it is. A woman talking about demon Sperm really has ZERO else to say about anything medically.

    Just as a Sexist and Racist Homophobic bigot has nothing to say about policing culture or language while at the same time whining about being censored.

    I also don't think it is ever reasonable to suggest anyone should be anything but hostile to horseshit arguments such as "The Jews did it" or "All homosexuals are Pedophiles".

    I sincerely don't a flying fuck what anyone things a reasonable argument can be made of that kind of stupid shit.

    I'm really confused here - you realise alt-right isn't a mainstream ideology right? It's extremely infrequently seen, especially on this site.

    Yes Left Wing like Sargon

    Don't really care about your claims, just pointing out you already don't follow the rules, never mind anything else you are pointing out. Meaning you have no credibility, which I doubt is even the point.

    I agree about bias, but it sure as hell isn't against those who aren't even trying to follow the rules or flagrantly show disdain for them like yourself.

    You have an impressive talent of not actually making any points

    What are you actually talking about?

    What rules am I not following?

    I see a lot of hate for the mods around here but have never quite understood it. Ive been around for almost 10 years. Granted, I'm not a prolific poster, but in that time I've amassed a grand total of 1 infraction for mild flaming after having a bad day and posting before I cooled down. In the grand scheme of things how hard is it to avoid certain topics and be civil? You can still have heated debates, I've had plenty, but if you don't post mad and keep it non personal, you're fine.

    The topics that are banned aren't going to lead to a good discussion anyway, and have nothing to do with WoW. There are plenty of other spots to engage in those conversations if you like.

    It's a temporary ban on a video game forum. Contacting lawyers seems like an extreme over reaction.

    It's not like you were shot in the back 7 times by someone on a whim thought they knew what you were thinking...

    Trust me, with how disjointed and deranged your posts are right now I'm sure most people have no idea what you're talking about


    Kindly tell me what rules I'm currently breaking?

    You being confused =/= I'm confused about it. I addressed your claim on using the term in 2020 + the US connection.

    And what you see or don't see doesn't really change things. Telling me what I see or don't is kinda presumptuous.

    Wait, someone contacted a lawyer over a ban on MMO-C...?

    I'm amazed.

    No, you misunderstand me. I'm not telling you what you see - I'm telling you if you're claiming alt-right is a mainstream/ common thing to see online or otherwise - you're either looking for it or lying.

    Here you go a refresher since it bust your fingers to go back and actually look at what you post.

    When I asked if the mod who banned me could prove I was trolling (I wasn't) - guess who never got a reply?


    It objectively has worse moderation than 4chan, and that's impressive. Luckily it's not like I pay to be here or have to deal with ads - but I would take this place more seriously if they had actual semi-decent mods

    Very first post in here by you, and has been predicted by a few others who pull the same bullshit that you do, that even predict exactly how this thread is going to go.

    Okay.

    Explain to me how someone telling you to kill yourself is totally fine

    But what I said is somehow trolling - surely I know when I'm trolling someone or not

    OP you are hardly the type of user that has the right to complain about moderation. You got put in your place by Edge and then you flamed him for "having a "shrimp brain" and now here you are now complaining about "over moderation" ...lol give me a break.



    If the moderation's narrative is that they are under manned then of course you're going to have some mods here who are going to try and go above the call of duty to moderate the website.



    At the end of the day it's like people already said: too many rules that have "gray" areas that are interpreted differently by different mods. I'm sure I'm not the only one but I've had infractions appealed and over turned by illustrating how biased a mod's decision to infract somebody (myself) and not others of equal or more behavior.



    Another issue are mods who actively participate in threads of discussion where either the A.) topic is borderline troll/bait/rule breaking, or B.) engaging with other posters who debates/arguments that borderline flaming/attacking each other. It's not a good look as we saw with a certain mod in Gen-OT get removed from power (or relinquish his duties after pressure) after so many users complained about him.


    Keeping rules vague, purposely or not, allows too much room for interpretation between individual mods and until that's fixed, threads like this will continue to pop up. Threads and discussions about moderation can only be squelched so long before people start willing take bans for starting threads about it.
