It's basically a Sony forum half the time and they're frothing at the mouth for any minor piece of PS5 info since Sony have announced almost bugger all compared to Microsoft.

You'd probably get banned for saying that too.

I've tried being subtle about saying that plenty of times there but I think it goes over their heads :(

I guarantee at least some of the people in that thread proclaiming they saw how problematic it was at the time were actually sat there laughing their arses off when it first aired.

I've re read that post multiple times now and I still can't understand what whataboutism is supposed to mean.

One of the negatives of streaming services vs. physical media.

I think Little Britain bar the odd sketch was a load of gooseberry fool, but that’s not the point. Yes, I’m well aware Michael Jackson was probably a nonce (The Simpson’s), Jimmy Saville definitely was a nonce (Top of the Pops), Robin Ethics was a murderer (WCW/WWE), old sitcoms feature homophobic or racist language (Friends, Only Fools and Horses, Fawlty Towers) and many cartoons don’t hold up either (Looney Tunes) but I’m quite capable of making my own decision whether I want to watch it, and I’m well aware times and attitudes adapt with time.

Warner Brothers had it right putting a disclaimer before programming rather than attempting to retcon or dictate what I can and can’t watch from history.

Or a positive that they can react so quickly in pulling blatantly racist content?

Little Britain shouldn't have even been allowed to air 15 years ago, let alone now.

Whataboutism/whataboutary/argumentum ad hominem tu quoque attempts to discredit an opponent's position by charging them with hypocrisy without directly refuting or disproving their argument.

Review threads are SERIOUS BUSINESS :capnscotty:
Review threads can be contentious, and in order to improve the level of discussion, please observe the following guidelines:

• No matter your stance on the game, your contributions always should be thoughtful and backed with substance. Avoid drive-by posting (do not just drop a hot take and leave).
• Do not engage in metacommentary or generalizations about other members who disagree with you. This will be moderated strictly.
• Do not troll. If the staff determine that you are trolling or attempting to inflame the discussion you will be banned.
• Exercise caution before accusing a media outlet or reviewer of having ulterior motives behind their score, or insulting them because you don't like the score they gave. If your claim is inflammatory and you cannot substantiate it, you will be banned.
• Treat your fellow members with respect at all times. These are only video games.

All rules laid out in our General Guide still apply in this thread. These additional guidelines will apply to all future review threads and will be reposted as necessary.

she's going to kill her dog :(

Edit: I realized after the fact that my comment could be construed as me ignoring that the lady was trying to kill a black man in favor of me pointing out that she's choking her dog. This was exceedingly poor phrasing on my part and I didn't mean to imply that the latter was more important than the former. I apologize.

User afraid of being banned for whataboutism :lol:

Does every other post have to be edited/revised with five times the text explaining away any potential implications from a simple statement of concern about only one aspect of a theme/topic. Who has time for this?

God that place is so po-faced at times, i never thought i'd see a thread where something as dumb as teabagging would be compared with 'toxic masculinity'
