There is no ambiguity. Comparing things doesn't mean that you necessarily equate them as being 100% the same. This is the real life nature of comparisons. if I compared Japanese ppl to South African ppl, obviously that is not a 100% sameness. It is about things that are similar between both subjects. No where in my original comment that I say that both items are the same thing. That is your misunderstanding. 

Now, if you can't accept my clarification of my comment, then there is nothing I can do for you. 

The way you worded it definitely implies they're 100% equally egregious business practices at the least, to the point where everyone who hates loot boxes but were ok with amiibo are now hypocrites apparently. You then try to say you were just making a statement based on content locked behind paywalls in general, which wasn't the only or even main problem people were criticising about loot boxes in the first place, making your whole argument a straw man.

Argue whatever semantics you like, you're in the wrong here.

What a strange take. It's a gross re-interpretation of what I said, but whatever I guess. Maybe if I had said 'when you are ok with Nintendo locking content being amiibos', you would be right. But I didn't.

I never made the the person I quoted the subject of my 2nd clause, nor did I make his opinion the subject of my 2nd clauses.

So no, there is no implied notion that ppl are hypocrites. That is just your poor misreading of my comment.
