In defense of Cutter... a few things.

1) Need entire context of the conversation.

2) Shit's changed in the last 3 years alone, people change.

3) I never wanted an iphone as I thought they were for the stuck up Elite that needed the next "elite showcase piece" , and for quite a few years Iphones/Apple products were that, plus being a main PC/Google user things were just fucking easier to get done on a android. So what changed? Everything just works on an Iphone (still rocking my first and only Iphone 8+, and the learning curve was a bitch that my 12 year old nephew had to show me how to do things), and security started becoming a concern of mine.

I agree with #1 and #2. I picked statements that I think stood alone and hey, you can always verify, but even if I'm wrong about 90% of them there's still enough. People change and that can be a good thing - I asked "what changed?" for a reason. I don't see what changed on point #3, is there anything about iPhones that just work better now? I haven't had any problems getting my Androids to work. Is the iPhone's security better now?

I ordered my iPhone 13 and macbook pro 14" on day 2 and was pretty late in the queue but I didn't have to wait overnight outside bestbuy or woken up by Twitter stock notifications at 3am. Apple just sent me my stuff within 2-3 weeks when it was ready and came straight from China.

You never cease to amaze.

I've never said other companies weren't evil. Simply that Apple is the evilest of them all. And yes, if you support Apple you do hate America and babies, and likely love the terrorists too.

I don't think you've really ever given a reason why Apple is more evil than Google or Walmart or Koch Industries or MLM pyramid schemes.

After being called out on it fourteen or fifteen times, he's probably not going to start now either, except maybe to trot out the late Steve Jobs' stance against charitable donations again. Just move on.

Hey jackass! I've listed them all before. I have neither the time nor desire to reiterate them every time. If you're too LAZY to do your own research on why they're so bad then it just shows the kind of person you really are - along with your fellow Apple supporters.

There's a lot more, and that's after excluding the ones about Apple fanboys (because buying their products doesn't have to mean fanboy).

LOL my point proven beautifully. Even discussion is banned, even though I was not taking a side, merely describing the problem.

Regardless, happy holidays everyone, and fingers crossed for those RTX 3080 Ti in your stockings! :-)

The word is banned here, because Blue has freedom of expression on his platform, but we're still discussing it. You were discussing it when you said discussion is banned.

Even playing as the people who are stopping the school shooting is bad now? I would expect that the controversy would be good publicity.

But I guess we live in a world where Even telling people not to use the word "* REMOVED *" gets you cancelled because you said the word.
Looks like the 'Regressive leftists' and the Twitter mobs have spread their voldermort mentality in the real world. You can't even discuss an issue.

Oh no, people disagree with you if you use the word you can't use even though somehow you just used it. Such oppression!

Edit: Oh hey, the word is banned here. Fair enough, that's Blue's freedom of expression.

Let it sink in that the entire gaming community was offended by the Mass Effect 3 ending. Not a peep from Bioware. In fact, they rightfully defended their ending calling it creative freedom or whatever. But when a level designer puts a Quran on the floor of the house of Heidi from Austria because she's a book collector ignorant of Islamic beliefs, that just can't go. "But... Heidi...?" No. Fuck you and your Heidi.

🤯

Didn't they remake the ending?

Anyway people said it sucked, that's a completely different thing to being allegedly disrespectful.

Read the article and become self-aware. She literally says that it takes a few months for her ridiculous device to work.

Ah I forgot about this. Do you mean this? "The device only needs to be used every few months to keep the sperm inert and prevent eggs from being fertilized during sex."

That doesn't mean it takes a few months for it to work, that means the effect lasts a few months.

Yea that's totally it, and not that the angry gamers / nerds are angry because the IPs they love are handed over to be "rebranded" by people that hate everything about said IP in favor of some mega minority demographic that never had initial interest.

You have to try pretty hard to get banned, like out and out racism or incitement to violence.

Sadly, many conservatives appear to define those things as core conservatism.
Not outright, but they defend any person banned for those reasons, plus harassment, as being "banned for being conservative."

Yet they complain when other people point out their racism, their sexism, and so on. They define it as part of their ideology yet they complain when it's pointed out.
