Can't get access to the site, but that tweet has some posts from it.

I just said it was an overreaction. Which it was. The company didn't even look at appearance when the casted the voice actors. They just picked the people on the best voice samples they got for the roles.

No, that's coloured people, people of colour is obviously completely different.

I'm guessing there are probably some historical connotations, which I'll admit I have no idea about. The only other reason I can see for it being that way is that it puts emphasis on the characteristic first instead of the person, in the same way that in academics we call those with disabilities "people with disabilites" rather than "disabled people", or just "disabled". But that's just a guess, I have no idea if it's the same.

You couldn't have at least looked up the history of it before making that first snide remark?

Thanks, just found the thread via a link on there.

Here's the topic in question: https://www.resetera.com/threads/wargro ... rk.157376/

Some of the bans there are just bizarre...

User Banned (Duration Pending): Dismissive drive-by in a sensitive thread, a history of similar behavior


User Banned (1 Week): Inflammatory false equivalence


User Banned (Duration Pending): Tone policing and dismissing concerns of representation in a sensitive thread, concern trolling, a similar history of dismissiveness


:shock:

What the flying strawberry float is 'tone policing'?

Telling people what time they can use. Like, don't be telling me how to speak in this thread.

"I admit I have no idea about it, but I think it's political correctness gone mad!!!" is very on-brand to be fair.

You really shouldn't comment on things with such a snide tone when you don't actually understand the issue.

From a topic about a games site plagiarizing someone's work:

A shame it happened, I really like niche gamer.


why?


User banned (permanent): supporting bigotry

It has plenty of information about localization and censorship in Japanese/Western games I wanted to import.

Anime tiddies and stuff, you know.

strawberry floating hell :lol:

I thought the whole thing about Niche Gamer is for him copy other people's work. Was he being bigoted as well? The word bigotry doesn't fit the context of this at all, if not.
