IT also takes no courage to express disdain for the ourage againt bigotry. At least not anonymously on the internet. We can go on like that that infinitely.

I'm not outraged. It's typical and in many settings socially accpetable to use gay slurs. This incident is just a piece of the larger problem. The point is that Blizzard gave a guy a big stage to voice his gay slurs. Slurs that I hardly think they woudld embrace publicly.

So now you're just an anonymous complainer?

How about at least taking an anonymous stand?


Again, the pot is calling the kettle black. I did take a stand. But I will elaborate. I find biggotry generally disgusting, whether it's of the form of slurs based on sexual identity, gender, ethnicity or actions.

Blizzard is a huge studio with tons of fans. It does not behoove them to be associated with biggotry of any type.

You can say whatever you like, just don't expect people to keep silent when biggots say what they like. Also on a website, the website operator can remove anything he/she likes, for whatever reason period. I'm shocked that Blue does not want to be associated with biggotry. *scarcasm*

Gay biggotry is disgusting to me. All biggotry is disgusting to me. It takes no courage to be biggoted against a group with a particular characteristic.


It also takes no courage to express outrage against bigotry. At least not anonymously on the internet.

I'm not outraged. It's typical and in many settings socially accpetable to use gay slurs. This incident is just a symptom of the larger problem of prejudice and biggotry. Instead of anti gay slurs, substitute gender slurs or ethnic slurs. Then there would be even more outrage. The point is that Blizzard gave a guy a big stage to voice his gay slurs. Slurs that I hardly think they would embrace publicly.

Also on a website, the website operator can remove anything he/she likes, for whatever reason, period. In fact, they can be biggots themselves.

Gay biggotry is disgusting to me. All biggotry is disgusting to me. It takes no courage to be biggoted against a group with a particular characteristic and not only that but the reasons for this biggotry can be showed to be objectively false.

Are you seriously calling an encyclopedia a source?

Even Wikipedia's founder Jimmy Wales agrees that the online encyclopedia is not a citable source. He said in a 2005 interview with Business Week that "people shouldn't be citing encyclopedias in the first place."

I cited where I got my information. That's why it's a source. It may not be the best or even a good source or an authority but it is a source of my information.

I wish to point out that Eskimos don't have more words for snow than we do in English:

This is a common misconception.

I'm sure they will add terminators in DLC.

There is a nasty bug in the game that prevents you from actually joining the game, you can chat with people who are in game, but you remain in the lobby. It has happened about 6 times on 13 attempts to play for me. That's not a good number.

Wonder if bug like this would happen if this was PC only game like DoW2. My guess is it wouldnt. I will play once they address that bug.
No DJSatane, you will play it regardless of any connection bugs!

Also I agree, calling it "free" DLC is disingenuous because this was originally supposed to be part of the original game.

There is misogyny in society. A lot of it in fact. And Batman reflects that. Most developers in the industry are males and they may not even realize they are doing it. Think about how many insults involve comparisons to something that is considered female:

Bitch, throws like a girl, talks like a girl, pansy, nancy, cunt, pussy, etc.

Notice how there are very little comparisons of perceived male characteristics applied to females in insults. The net result of this imbalance is that that females are considered inferior to males.

People once again show that whatever new game comes out that has a little bit of name recognition or marketing, it will sell number 1 on steam. It's no wonder that publishers don't like to release their big games at the same time for fear of competition.

RAGE is not worth 60 bucks people! I am offended!

Of course, big name publishers release their big games at the same time pretty often, so your statement is kind of flawed there.

That said, I agree that it's not worth 60 bucks. Pick it up when it's on sale for 10.

Creston
I should have been more specific and say that developers/publishers don't like to release similar games at the same time for fear of competition especially if one is a "bigger" title than the other.

Why wouldn't the developers or publishers see money from the cdkey sites? How are these cd keys obtained? Someone had to buy them? They didn't just make them up otherwise they wouldn't work.
