I read an interesting article about Resetera today

Interesting article. It really seems to check all the boxes when it comes to era and extremist lefties in general.
The economic link seems particularly interesting. The USA is, to the rest of the world, known very well as exploitative of its own workers, to many of its residents. Low wage, shitty work conditions, lack of accessible health care and so on. It's basically the only first world country in the world being as asocial as it is when it comes to the lower income bracket. Mind you, we have tons of low wage jobs in Germany too, but you can't be fired easily, nor will you find a lack of health care (our health care has some problems, but not being able to afford something isn't one of them).

If you then add a minority person that is, to a degree, sensitive about their minority status, and this lack of faith in oneself due to low economic status and no improvement in sight, the "great uncertainty about personal significance" as outlined in the article, putting your values of identity into some group you bond over the issues you have with, instead of the self that is disliked, makes complete sense.

Seems to me like the entire "group narcissism" stems from a very child-like and innocent emotion of wanting to belong and being sad and mad of being denied.
It's the whole "let's bond over us being hurt by not belonging and act like we never liked them anyways" turned up to 11 and from adults. Extremely unreflected behavior.

I just looked at the Era thread for the Crenshaw-Noah interview, and people are doing memes based on a comment from some pro 9/11 guy? What in the actual fuck?
Liberals aren't going to be happy until we are all forced to wear burqa's, what else is new?
Edit: did not take long for their "all republicans are evil, no exceptions" to start. I'm sooo shocked!

Culture of Narcissism is nothing new. It is from the conservative end of academic/leftist "critical theory" by Christopher Lasch. The argument is that the boomers were joining groups like the weather underground, hippie cults, or worst of all, Apple computer user groups, because they refused to grow up. What growing up means to him is harder to describe. Having a world view that matches verifiable facts about the world rather than matches what you think is "real deep dude", "like true on a spiritual level", "far out", "the sort of truth the mechanical gnomes tell me when I take DMT", or whatever. Another thing he thought was important was losing tradition extended family relationships and responsibilities. He also thought people were psychically scarred by things such as the brutality of the second world war and symptoms such as "individualism", "self sufficiency" or "survivalism" went hand in hand with a breakdown in ability to take a healthy place in a well-functioning society.

Why they want to ban Big Black Cocks?

"Morality is my opinion". How they can survive in the real life?


Oh, they don't have a real life.
 
That’s why these creatures and their ilk are rewriting reality to suit their warped world view, and castigating and ostracising anyone that opposes them.
But it seems industry insiders and some devs listen to them which is why we can't have nice things any more. What gives? Why do we constantly give in to the crazies? Oh GODS! A GAME HAS SEXY WOMEN! THE HORROR!
 
I think I am done going to that site, tbh. Whenever I try to have a discussion on interesting topics there, people just reply name-calling and beating down any opinion or discussion that isn't just agreeing with their group think. It is depressing stuff. Passive aggressive vibes from just reading people's posts who do agree with each other.

You telling me people who can't handle the radical views from...

-checks notes-

...the BBC... are having trouble discussing anything that might slightly deviate from what they think?

No way!

The worst part is that - taking a step back - even the most well-informed, well-educated and outrageously intelligent person will gradually dull their wits if they don't mix and exchange ideas with differing schools of thought. It's much the same in biology: when you genetically isolate and homogenise groups, they become less adaptable and varied and more at risk from negative malefactors. I think the same happens with ideas and education, as much on over-moderated internet forums as is remote rural townships.

What's sad is that in pursuing a sort of moral impeachability (which they'll never reach), they're dumbing themselves down. I'm sure there are genuinely thoughtful, intelligent people in spaces like Resetera who are doing themselves a great disservice by towing the party line and pronouncing the required shibboleths over and again for the sake of social acceptability, rather than having the courage to follow their own curiosity and intellect.

It isn't really sad though but get the point, these are middle-aged men. Most external people reading it just say "meh" and leave or get banned. Those users are what they have. (laughing at it).

Talking about reality is banned. Whoops just lost a load of users. The site is ruined. Their mod team is the worst I've ever seen, I've seen bad ones for decades but this is next level.

They just don't understand what a forum moderator is supposed to do and now it's too late as the next batch just follow by example as it's become the norm.

Will drive the site into the ground while everyone laughs. I'd love a reality catch-up show from the Mods a year from now.

Make it dramatic, like the Kardashians. Would be glorious. "wasn't paid, but fuck white people" - Nepthene 2021

End scene, the original owner (can't remember his name), "stole users, got offered a fat cheque and bailed." Cue a smile and the "This is Era gif".

Which was stolen from GAF as well.

Anyone else notice how mediocre the OTs have been recently? I think they’re losing people left and right

You need to calmly ask your assailant in a stern but measured voice if it's okay for you to defend yourself. Otherwise, it could likely be a micro aggression triggering thoughts of black people getting shot, even if your assailant is white. Perhaps he/she/them/fae/buttplug identifies as a black person. It's in the best interest of everyone to respect their choice to shoot you, should they deny you the right to self defense. We're all hupeople, after all.

Recently there was a thread there about burglaries in SF (they were breaking into homes and stealing bikes for fun) and people were saying the burglarers should be given counseling and money.

Damn, imagine ignoring the facts of a court case because of political reasons. I am as liberal as they come and going into the trial figured he'd be convicted, but after seeing all of the evidence thus far I too would be surprised if he gets anything more than a weapons charge. Kid has a pretty solid case IMO.

I'm not trying to be political, just pointing out how Ree mods will ignore reality to enforce their sad will onto others.

Holy shit MOBA have gone in hard with the ads. Full border ads around the entire forum and floating ads that stay in the center of the screen when I scroll.

Looks like shit, what a mess.

Love to see it. Couldn't happen to a more deserving cesspit place.

Also just some more evidence to add to the 'big companies only care about money' pile.

Was robbed as a teen after first moving from home, all the money I had too. Had just bought FF7, my friend didn't defend me getting robbed. Bastard was sitting beside me.

As for the sites ads, hahahahahhahahahaha. Where you at B-Dubs? "Nothing is changing". hahahahaha.
