Locked: Banned from Neogaf for having a different opinion. Am I wrong?

Forums - General Discussion - Banned from Neogaf for having a different opinion. Am I wrong?

I never even got the whole GG discussion. It blew out of proportion so quickly and became a 'thing' by the time I opened VGC. Suddenly harrassing women is fine? But no one wants to do it? Who's Zoe Quinn? She had sex with someone? Well... that's bad... I guess? (Inb4 ban)

OT: were you banned before? Or close to a permaban? Because if you got perma'd out of nowhere, GAF mods need a little bit of the banhammer on their heads. Repeatedly.



Bet with bluedawgs: I say Switch will outsell PS4 in 2018, he says PS4 will outsell Switch. He's now permabanned, but the bet will remain in my sig.

Any examples?

there was somebody banned shortly after Nintendo gave informations about NX releases in march and zelda port. He made a topic similar to "im done with nintendo, they suck, ill get a playstation". He got banned. Dont remember his name.

 

Somebody got banned a while ago because he complain about almost all his topic got closed by one (always the same) moderator with explanations like:" this topic doesnt make sense" or "this topic is uninteresing for our community". He said he wrote the mod but the mod ditn replyed, other mod didnt cared so he made a topic where he linked all closed topic and asked the community about this, many agreed that most of his topics shouldnt get closed. Shorty after that he was banned for giving public critics.

Not only is that wrong, you haven't replied to anyone who questioned your post. Looks like more of a bait and run troll post

Even if what you're saying is true, how does that translate into weekly bans for differing opinions, though?

Never.  I've never had any contact with a mod in any form.

Because the problem here always were different opinions. Different opinion about somebody liking/disliking nintendo and about somebody who disagree with his topic got closed for no real reasons.

That are just 2 example i can remember right now, i also dont see ALL bans on this forums as well (because im not daily here). But often when im here and i see a ban thats not for a good reasons (like heavy insulting people).

 

I just found one if mine mentioned examples: http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread.php?id=214380&page=4



So what? Now you want to continue your debate on another forum and prove "I is right"?

And yeah I think it's a fair ban. GG is the cancer that polarized this industry, it also seems to be lead by Islamophobic neckbeards on youtube(Amazing atheist, Sargon). Racism and Islamophobia are as big if not a bigger issue in online gaming. Even if you make valid arguments, don't expect to be treated on an equal footing in anti-GG dens.

Kinda ridiculous how 2 years later people still waste their time on this chapter of internet drama though.

You cornered yourself with that comment. An unpopular opinion can be interpreted or conveniently labelled as trolling. If any VGC moderation falls into those, is not something anyone can prove. There can be a lot of ambiguity when it comes to that type of post and its iniquity will be based on the moderators assumptions... oops, I meant "judgement".

So many ways you could be misinterpreting things, but that's not really a problem. I was just curious about this "weekly ban" thing. I've not seen that happen.



                                                                                                                                            

My only thing is people praising Gaf like it's the Holy Grail of gaming websites. Site looks generic, bland, and outdated imo. Plus the moderation there is absolutely horrible as demonstrated by this thread and personal experience.
