I recognise I am probably the only person on GRcade that cares about this stuff which is why I don't enforce it on here. But if I were running a huge site like Era then TBH I'd moderate in exactly the same way they do.

I think that's an important point - although I do care about equality by the way - to consider the community's self-moderating context. There's ultimately little point alienating an entire community or those around or outside of and yet to contribute in a community, because of heavy handed moderator decisions and trying to make a large group of people have correct, inoffensive opinions. On the net, I think we strive a little harder for that kind of utopia, maybe because people feel more at ease being gooseberry fools on the Internet, whereas in public, those people are mostly hidden, sometimes creating damaging undercurrents and strawberry floating gooseberry fool up when the moment arises, but largely kept to themselves. There's a degree of self-silencing going on (I'm not sure if that's a good or bad thing, because you end up with situations like public shootings and executions, carefully targeted harassment, etc).

In other words, with online "policing" you kind of have a giant game of whackamole. It's public, yet private (most websites don't have to really honour any idea of "free speech" because it is not a public platform - unless maybe you get as big as Facebook? I'm not sure what any legislature says about that.)

Anyway, good luck to them, they apparently enjoy it. :simper:

It's a bit like the term "gay" actually - the tone and defensive/offensive stance is generally pejorative. From the outside, that sounds very presumptuous, because it is. It's protectionist in a way I am describing above. And I'm not sure it's always OK.

My liberal and humanist and pacifist mentalities really conflict with well disguised stigma, oppression and discrimination at times. I guess I simply don't condemn anyone for having "wrong" or "bad" opinions - while being aware of the damage it can, collectively, create.

Edit: Oh god I sound like one of those horrible centrist, please everyone, nothing to see here YouTube/corporate types. Maybe this changed when I started practising meditation?

Words and phrases are given meaning by the context in which they are used. "SJW" is used almost exclusively by people who think "social justice" is a bad thing, to mock and belittle people who think "social justice" is a good thing.

I have never been so triggered.

(And see, that's the kind of joke we can have on here where everyone knows each other and has the context and trust that arises from that. You all know that Moggy and I are parodying the kind of people who use the term "virtue signalling" and accuse others of being "triggered". But I would support a warning for it on Era. Different platform, different community, different context.)

I don't think saying Lando is a flamboyant gay dude is offensive when it is directly linked to how the poster believes Lando's character is supposed to 'be' and the contrasts are so specifically related.

If he said "he's supposed to be an amazing pilot but he's just a flamboyant gay dude" then it would be offensive.

Yeah strawberry float unironic use of terms like sjw/virtue signalling/triggered/etc, that gooseberry fool is toxic and pervades every other corner of the internet where game discussion occurs. I give Era massive credit for not tolerating it.

Who cares? If they're not hurting anyone or doing anything illegal, just mind your own business.


I don't really see a problem with it. If I have to gooseberry fool when eating a sandwich or something I'll just take it into the bathroom with me.

I guess *technically* until you start wiping your botbot your hands are completely available to hold something without poopoo contamination being a risk, so holding a drink and enjoying it on the bog shouldn't be an issue. It's not something I've ever done, but I can see how people would. It's no different to holding your phone and watching porn err I mean documentaries.

Except you have touched a lock, door, loo seat, that others have touched with their gooseberry fool festered hands.

Plus all the poop particles in the air that are getting all over your food.

I guess in a public toilet that'd be an issue, but in your own home? I think everyone on the planet with a mobile uses it whilst they're on the bog.

Good point (assuming that's a thing?) but I wouldn't ever personally take food in whilst I'm having a gooseberry fool, my poos smell bad and would put even the hungriest person off :slol:
