It s pretty much a consensus dude and to be honest the Ninty and MS fans here are really polite about it. The most indicative evidence is how the Force that should not be named comes up with petitions and boycotts against everything or everyone.

When Nintendo or Microsoft loses an exclusive to Sony you don't see us calling the boycott card or even the moneyhat card. We actually congratulate you on being able to enjoy another game. You on the other hand almost systematically come up with a thread about how it is or will be the ultimate version with indispensable content.

The exclusive argument is also something that despite ediotorial intervention cannot get through properly. From a sales aspect, and this is site is about sales, the exclusivity, even if console related, allows one to have a SALES advantage on the other. So please stop the allergic reactions to every mention of the word exclusivity as it systematically derails threads.

One thing though that cannot really be managed properly is that since PS fans are so numerous on this website the amount of complaints can only be assymetrical. Maybe the mod team is not that bad and there isn't much to be done there.

I would instead suggest teh Force that i won't dare to name to consider that they are far more present than others and are populated with an AT LEAST proportionnally consequent number of bannable people and at the same time are far less reported than other people from other groups.

Combine the both and that already explains a lot.



I see your destructoid and raise you http://www.sonydefenseforce.com/ a website created by a 360 fan solely for the purpose to make fun of Sony fans and make them look silly.

As for which is the worst? thats really subjective. In my opinion the gross generalizing and victim mentality that 360 fans display is worse than the overly protective Ps3 fans due to the aggressiveness of the 360 fans at the begining of the generation

That is more humor than anything else, besides, if he also made the website wii60.com (which is now discontinued, how ironic) then it seems he is just surfing on the console war for clicks... not necessarily having an IDOLOgy behind that.

There is pleanty of weird people otut there on every side. What I am trying to provide through the destructoid and the mindofgame links is a collection of COLLECTIVE actiting of the Sony side which has no equivalent on the Wii or 360 sides.

I dunno, all you've proven to me is that Jim Sterling doesn't like Sony fans and likes hits.

Other article is on a specific instance that doesn't really have a corelary for the other two, there aren't similar instances like the FFXIII announcement for Nintendo or 360 fans to prove they wouldn't do the exact same thing.  Closest I can think is Bayonetta 2 and you'd have a hard time convincing me that there were more PS3 fans being all pissy about that than 360 fans by any reasonable degree.

Exactly. Fighter is just grossly generalizing as usual for these kinds of threads. I tried to generalize too but apparently he didnt catch on.



I don't know if mods are doing a good or bad job but what I realise reading threads is that some posters are good at starting fire and often get away with it. Selnor was the guy you could pick on really easily he would jump on a discussion about anything 360 in a heart beat but some posters noticed that and kind of turned the discussion in their favor. I'm not trying to excuse his bad behavior but how many times have I seen him being insulted or ridiculized for no apparent reason and the mods not doing anything. If I can see it I'm sure so do mods.

I talk about Selnor because that's what this thread is about but there are other posters that are easy to frustrate and some are very good at starting fire with them. I think mods should pay more attention to where a discussion is heading because of some posters. Just because some are easyer to frustrate doesn't mean they should be picked on. There are a few people I would warn and ban eventhough they didn't directly insult anyone. They spur fire, they know how and always get away with it.

As for SDF vs MDF I didn't know MDF existed but I got warned once for saying Sony fanboys were annoying in a MS thread... this wasn't necessary. But anyway I'm no mod in here.



I for one will be leaving this site; because of this bullshit!!! This site's credibility had gone down significantly! The Sony Defense Force can have it!!!

this site doesn't need attitudes like these so if youre serious I'd ask for a permnaban like Selnor did



Why don't you guys focus on your own behaviour rather than worrying about others so much? It's not like you're receiving bans for no reason. Regardless of whether others should be banned that aren't getting banned, you guys are bringing these bans that you do receive on yourselves.

There used to be more of a problem with certain mods that were a bit out of control. The current mods seem reasonable - I haven't seen any evidence to the contrary.

This site doesn't need you.

Just look at how hostile you've been in this thread, and that's all we need to know for you not being wanted.

Sorry for being brutally honest.

Also, I wouldn't recommend oni-link ask for a permaban, since he is wanted. You however should quickly ask for a permaban it would be an excellent idea. Even, if you need me, I can help you with that.

You do realize you're doing the exact same thing as him, right? Worse for you, At least he's actually responding to a post that should be discouraged. And how has he been hostile? I've only seen him responding to posts that deserve criticism.

No hostility at all in my post. Just suggesting a course of action that will give the poster his wish. That would be not to be a member anymore. Only hostile post here is yours which is as necessary as oni-links comment
