I was so happy when that dickhead left Kinda Funny. Even ignoring the incident that led to him leaving he was a miserable fun sponge on a site called Kinda Funny.

Finally managed to get my activation email but it’s saying I have insufficient privileges to reply to threads, do I need to wait for something else?

Reviving the original intent of this thread, but with ResetEra instead of Neogaf

my poop smells minty?

With all due respect to you guys, trying to decipher someone's political opinions from two out of context tweets is a bit silly.

Anyone who has actually listened to him talk at length would know he's not racist or sexist.

But of course everything on the internet is black and white.

And context doesn't matter apparently.

Seen plenty of his opinions on Twitter and he comes across as a complete banana split so that's enough for me.

I have listened to Colin Moriarty for years on IGN and KF. I don't care about his politics, that was the majority of the problem. He was more interested in telling everyone about how he is a libertarian than actually talking games. Hence his new project I guess. Good riddance you bore.

I like how in that Patreon post linked in that thread he went out of his way to name and give thanks to a ton of games journalists and reviewers apart from his ex-Kinda Funny colleagues.

Well I don't agree with everything he says, or think he's a great person, but I can respect his opinions.

He can get pretty fired up when talking about politics but I think most people do.

People are a bit too quick to slag people off who they don't agree with these days.

I've never voted Conservative in my life and I see crude anti conservative stuff on Facebook all the time, and I find it pathetic.

Wow, someone said something you don't agree with, either debate with them and try and convince them why they are wrong, with facts, or grow up and accept not everyone shares your views.

Slagging them off is just childish.

And with regards to kind of funny.
I watch some of their stuff, but a lot of their videos are just a massive circle jerk. I can understand why Colin would have wanted to leave. They're literally just doing IGN content but independently. At least when Colin was there made them a bit different. Now they're IGN: Patreon Version.

This might work if your dispute is what console to buy, or which crisps are best.

Not if one side is advocating genocide, though.

Pretty sure Colin didn't do that.

Either way, slagging them off isn't going to do a thing. Especially if you don't do it to their face. Just massages your own ego.

Fade should offer anti-slander defence forces to game-related online personalities.

Apparently they've restored all of the Off Topic stuff now (obviously minus anything relating to Evilore being rapey or Amir0x being a paedo)

Pretty sure I remember tweeting Greg Miller at the height of Colin being a knob that if he had to repeatedly put out his fires that something is wrong. I'd have no problem him reading my comments other than he would love the attention.

Yeah it's not like I mentioned Conservatives in my example. This clearly isn't about respecting opinions and not jumping to conclusions. I definitely only care about gaming personalities, spot on.

It just seems odd to me to be more upset that people bitch about other people they disagree with than average. And then, somewhat ironically, complaining about it.

Harbouring a distaste toward's others etiquette is one of many ways to be miserable. People say gooseberry fool and silently policing those thoughts achieves nothing in much the same way. That's my advice.

I'm really not upset :lol:

And I'm not being ironic. I said slagging people off is fruitless, not complaining.
If you can complain and make a good argument with facts then go for it.

I talk about debating with someone instead of slagging them off, then instead of trying to tell me why I'm wrong, you make a sarcastic remark towards me. And then call me ironic. Alright :simper:

Dude come on, thats a load of rubbish. The whole point of mods is to do exactly that.

Whoops. I didn't say what you're saying or doing is wrong. I actually have very little interest in day to day life proving whether or not people are right or wrong, in order to "win" a generally useless argument. Obviously you wouldn't know that from my posts. I feel it's right to be sceptical and fair in assessing stuff with an evidenced-based approach if you're accusing anyone of something, absolutely I agree with that (in case you think I disagree, which I did not). And I'm just saying it's, in my opinion, not worth your time - I've learnt to accept that backstabbers and people talking behind your or other's backs and saying mean things is a fact of life, and harbouring a distaste towards them as I have in the past (I really dislike "gossipers" and so on, I really don't get it), doesn't achieve much more than make you miserable. I mean that sincerely and not as a slight on you.

Obviously that's up to you how you feel about stuff that goes on... It has nothing to do with moderation, I'm providing a personal observation on your comments which I'm just as entitled to do as anyone else. That's a forum.

That first post was a tongue-in-cheek joke as you sometimes jump in defence of people on here - including Evilore in this thread - when you are talking about bad things that have been said about public figures. Before it was sexism/harassment/misogyny (the latter that you've probed previously - no comment on your views that are unclear) and now it's someone who's apparently a bigot.

I'm allowed to say in a free discussion that it does seem odd to me to defend these people. You are kind of policing it, but without any power to do so - so I guess my question is, what do you aim to achieve? You could argue it's just as fruitless defending against the lynch-mobbing, if you will, as it is doing the lynchmobbing/"slagging off". My - I think - valid observation is it's 2 sides of the same coin. You tend to be on the defensive side of debates. And yes I think it is ironic that you're being defensive about being defensive and complaining about sarcastic jest in my post while also being sarcastic in criticism of it, because that's exactly what irony is. There's nothing wrong with being defensive or sarcastic, or ironic. But I can notice it, and consider it "odd". I'm sorry if I offended you, honestly.

There's now an official dark theme.
Still too much purple, but better than the default at least.

It's about as dark as night time in Skyrim. I'll stick with unofficial Stylish theme.

edit: on the plus side, they've at least built the option to switch between light and dark into the front of the site (bottom left of board) and not just stuck it in board preferences, etc.
