It's funny when people are getting banned for console warring while some of the mods are console warriors

First of all to any mod reading this, if your mom was fucked by one man only don't delete this thread, even at era they don't delete anything unlike the green trash you have here that delete a lot of posts and threads, covering their tracks or what do you have to hide?

Now to the malignant cunt who gave me a 2 months ban for making a joke post, even though most of my warnings expired and i didn't get any new warnings I got a 2 month ban while you let the green clowns running rampant with little to no consequence, you piece of trash.

And then you tell me it's my last chance? Well you can stick that last chance up your [redacted] ass you wormy cocksucker.

And even though things supposedly started to change lately still the punishments are not fair and everyone is not treated the same way, and some people get a pass and protection, it's funny when people get banned for console warring while some of the mods are console warriors themselves.

And to the green rats who kept running and crying to the mods and reporting my posts, go suck a dildo then stick it up your ass while you suck another dildo while looking at uncle phil's picture that you have in your room, and imagining you sucking his dick as a thank you for giving you 1 year free of gamepass.

Good thing about this ban is I'm over my gaf addiction, so in case you clowns with your tiny little mids didn't understand that this is a perm request I'm telling you this is a perm request, so go ahead cocksuckas and pull the trigger, enjoy you green rats filled neo[redacted
sewers.

Kretos is right. He PM'ed me his warnings list. He only has a couple active warnings before permabanned.

Part of what I like about NEOGaf is that its always seemed to me to be more of a free speech board, while ResetEra has had tighter moderation. The discussions here are better and people are more willing to make off-color jokes since they are less worried about mods banning for wrong-think.

I understand that NeoGaf moderators are trying to stop console warring from ruining every thread, but overreach by moderators is a bigger concern IMO. There was a thread topic about Gamepass missing sales forecasts and I made a (bad) joke about Gamepass’s library and got a warning. I’m happy to refrain from making jokes like that, but it wasn’t like I was derailing a thread about a specific game, it was a thread whose main topic was Gamepass subscriber counts. Just think the moderation was too tight there, and it seems like it’s becoming a bigger issue here. Please don’t let this place then into ResetEra!

Also, I hope OP can get to a better place.

Honestly? I think that warning stuff is a whole lot of bullshit. There seems to be more bureaucracy in moderating us cretin forum posters than in running a European nation. I applied to be a mod shortly after the exodus, but boy oh boy am I glad I didn't get the gig :messenger_grinning_sweat:

I'd love to see the back and forth PM dialogue mods get from pissed people, or what Reported messages say. I truly wonder how often they either shake their head in disgust or laugh out loud at the messages.

Thats soft.

But getting people “riled up” is kinda annoying.

It’s definitely soft and if you are just speaking with friends or in a discord channel or something, I can see context where this would be a silly joke. however on a major forum like this? It just comes across as console warring. Especially if you just place that and pop off with no actual discussion or explanation.

Ya.

And you got to look at context and posting history. Big time warriors trend to literally 95%+ warrior posts in battleground threads. Some might even be 100%. There's always some slant to their post as a brand lover. They rarely make threads, rarely post in other kinds of gaming thread, and never see them in OT or Community tabs.

Basically, they wake up and check GAF for threads which look like debate threads. If there are some they join in and defend the fort. If there's none they leave.

The sad thing is, you'll probably tell your son about your part in the console war proudly....
The only console war to be proud of is the great war of the 90's, Nintendo versus Sega. That shit was lit! The battle was fought in school playgrounds and much blood was shed.




We were kids then though, and most of us grew out of it.



P.S Nintendo rools, Sega drools. Fight me, bitches.

P.P.S I was Nintendo at the time but also had a Megadrive and loved it. The reality is, both are legends.

Don’t want to speak for the mods here, but I’d assume there’s context in their decisions.

Someone who shitposts about everything, and doesn’t come across as a console warrior is less likely to get a warning or a ban for a joke post, than someone who has an agenda towards one manufacturer of plastic boxes or another.

They probably review someone’s general posting attitudes before handing out infractions.

I'm going to go with they are probably constantly laughing their asses off. I mean look at the laughs and entertainment we are all getting out of this one meltdown, now imagine this multiple times day and they are getting hours of this high caliber of entertainment daily. No wonder EviLore EviLore can get away with paying them in candy corn.

Hey how do you get to that page ? I never knew if I had ever been reported or had a warning.

Click on your name in the top right corner. Then click your name again. You should see a page that has those column tabs.

It doesn't appear to me, maybe those categories do not show if you haven't had a warning or a ban.
Thanks anyway I thought I was missing something.
