But you're not free to presume his innocence and label him accordingly? :lol: :fp:

I think he was a total paedo, but I wouldn't want anyone banned for saying otherwise.


Why is this even a discussion that's being had in 2019? MJ died ten years ago. Let. It. Go.
People who still harp on about his "guilt" annoy the heck out of me.

Not sure, but maybe because his victims are still alive and living with the horror of what he did to them, while his family profits from work he shouldn't have been able to create because he should have been in prison for being a child rapist? Could be that but again who knows.

For all the slack Era gets, and I'm certainly not going to defend every ban, silly post or warning on there (and the Etika situation was incredibly disappointing, though at least the ensuing thread saw a lot of reflective, empathetic discussion), I'm at least glad there's a large gaming forum willing to weed out bigotry like they are.

You see a lot of women and trans people posting on there, often with anecdotes they don't go elsewhere due to poor moderation. Not bad going considering it's governed by volunteer moderators, more than you can say for large conglomerate social media who handle their immense responsibility shockingly badly.

It's for that reason I'm not always that keen on outright dunking on them as an outright police state, even with some examples of overreaction it feels too close to alt right shitheads moaning that shitty unempathetic sentiments carry consequences. Certainly empowers them to see a forum going for more inclusivity, even admittedly with not always perfect results, getting lambasted.

Also, quick aside but major props to their mental health thread and the folks within who help each other out during dark times.

Also...are we due a title change on this thread now? Not sure we need to keep the NeoGAF sexual assualt bit there...

Should start a new thread called "You won't believe what Resetera have done now".
