You contradict yourself when you in one post say he is acting entitled for complaining, and here say he have the option to complain louder than activists.

How is that contradictory? He DOES have that option. But utilizing it IS acting entitled. I'm not saying he isn't allowed to act entitled, but he might want to consider whether he wants to call it out as a problem that others do so, if this is the path he decides to follow.
You can't say at the same time someone have the right to do something, but that acting on that right is entitlement.

Calling someone entitled is what?

Pointing out that someone expresses themselves in an entitled manner is not name-calling. I'm not even sure how I'd fashion that accusation into a namecall.  "You entitled little bitch!" would be a brash namecall, but even then, "bitch" would be the name.

Because you aren't discussing his point or the merit of his point, but that he is entitled because he is saying it. And people in VGC seem to have an issue separating action and person, someone that acts that way is implicit that. How often do you accuse smart people of acting dumb? Acting dumb is the action of dumb people for example.

I said it was an option, and that he was allowed to act entitled. It is is and he is. It's a free country.

And I did discuss his point, however vaguely. And while I admit that i could be more in depth and more accepting of his viewpoints, that does not make it namecalling to say that he's expressing an entitled stance. I'm not attakcing him as a person, but the nature of his writings.
