Okay then we are both in agreement you said Blue did not care enough about the truth then (as was said,). Why you so emotional over it and dancing like you did not day that ?
We're not in agreement because I didn't say that. And now you're being childish. You keep fabricating claims and insisting I made them while accusing me of being emotional. Remember that word projection?

Please note that this is exactly the kind of dishonesty I was taking Crytek to task for.

Again, semantics. You said he did not care about the SUBJECT, aka the TRUTH behind it and was willing to post things you thought were wrong (aka not provided in the source.).

Again, talk in circle ALL you want. You made the claim.

It's more defense of reason, but I understand now that you're not willing or able to assess this subject objectively.

You're welcome to defend however you like. Your post history says other wise.

Again, that's not what I said. I suggested he might not be invested in the subject. Please work on your reading comprehension because having your own argument misstated repeatedly is honestly a bit frustrating.


No of course. Complaining about responsible reporting, directed at Blue, claiming what he was reporting was clearly a lie then complaining "alternate facts" right after wasn't direct towards him either, but the unnamed who you name now.

Again you TRY to appear impartial. But it appears as though you have an agenda. Proof is in the pudding dear.

Korrd wrote on Jan 8, 2020, 16:03:
I suggest we let this go. There's clearly no middle ground to be reached as our positions are logically incompatible and we're already going in circles trying to establish a common perspective of reality. I appreciate that you took the time to participate even if it was ultimately fruitless. Maybe we'll have better luck next time.

You suggest I do something you don't can't do yourself? Sorry but no. If you're going to call out people like this I'll gladly call you on that.

I've been here a couple of years, I'm not going anywhere either. If you want some blatant attempt to smear the site operator to go unchecked do it on a sub you run. Maybe you could even provide relevant news articles.

Maybe next time you're unhappy with what you read, submit an alternative/updated one rather than crying people aren't researching what they post.

Your account (and how it acts like other pro SC accounts...) is here for that though. Defense of SC/CiG. You can TRY to be seen as impartial, but any viewing of your post history shows other wise. Talk in circles all you like dear, the bias is obvious.

I'm the type who tries to have a dialogue with other readers when I feel the need. I admit I expected a more equitable one than I got, but the attempt was earnest.

You're the type to try and affiliate Blue with "alternative facts", without directly saying it (again, because you are TRYING to be viewed as impartial, but you aren't.) then saying someone doesn't care about the truth as they aren't emotionally invested in this video game like you are.

Dialogue ? No, that's an agenda.

No, dear, I'm afraid that's not logically sound.

I didn't accuse Blue of not caring about the truth; I said maybe he doesn't care enough about the story to remember the past details and use them to contradict new claims.

Oh my that's cute dear. You can argue the semantics of it all you like. They both say the same thing. That Blue did not care enough about the truth.


lol.

All over the fact the Blue posted a verbatim quote, and the SC fanboys were upset it wasn't from a news source they wanted, that wasn't submitted.

You either care about the truth all the time... or you don't actually care about the truth. One doesn't need to be a zealot for a particular cause or entity (or biased against their counterpart) to care that details about those things be proliferated accurately and fairly. That seems like a clear logical fallacy to me.


Ah yes, the actual facts. The fact that you literally said Blue did not care for the truth ISN'T in fact accusing him of not caring.

It's unreal. I'm sorry Blue isn't a SC/CiG fanatic that he's read every bit about them and engages with everyone about it. The fact you think that's reasonable compared to what he does shows how deep you are into this cult like mentality.

I mean shit you could've submitted an updated article, but instead accused him of not caring enough about 1 topic in a myriad of others to devout his time to something YOU'RE interested in.

Continue in your stalwart defense of SC/CiG, it's enjoyable to watch the guys ONLY comment on this (and the 1 or 2 other posts they have so they can claim they are here for everything!) then act/pretend if they aren't so biased they just lie to support it. Mind you, you're the type to cry to a site operator directly in a thread as opposed to provide the material to him to post so it seems an argument is all you were after.

If you would actually do a little reading into any of what I have posted, and not cherry-pick post/sentences that fit your argument, you would see I have posted on several other topics other than SC topics, and I don't actually defend SC like you claim I do (actually I have had doubts bout it, and frankly don't care). I have defended myself from posters like your self and have bashed a few people over dumb posts over a gaming web site, but you keep on keeping I guess ... makes you feel good at night I guess.


Ya I know, I already said you did that.

Maybe you should try reading before accusing others of not. I mean the entire thing was a reply to you. Though, like I admitted I thought it was you when it turned out to be voodoo who was sensitive so that part I was off about.

What the actual fuck? I suggested Blue might not remember past details of the CIG/Crytek story--and thus be unable to directly refute bogus claims on the fly--and that constitutes an insult in your mind? Are you really so thin-skinned or just all about the whiteknighting? As I said, he might not have remembered because the details weren't important to him; i.e., he was just reporting a story and happened to not read/remember the documents in question. It wasn't an accusation; it's an understandable position to be in when your job is to post dozens or even hundreds of stories a week. I cannot imagine why you think that's an insult.

Dacron wrote on Jan 7, 2020, 16:58:

I've stated my reason for commenting here, so I should hope it's clear. Read my previous posts if you need a refresher. I think--or at least hope--you know what I meant by the above "insult" and are just playing the offense card. And lastly, I am not a fanatic--about anything.

Let me know if there's anything else you need explained in greater detail. I can use smaller words if needed.

Two people raising concerns is hardly piling on. And it seems to me that on a topic as frequently discussed as this lawsuit, that expecting a basic understanding of the details from previous posts (that did appear on Blue's) to persist isn't exactly unreasonable. Maybe I'm wrong and Blue doesn't care enough about the subject to remember those earlier details, and that's understandable--memory tends to work that way--but I do wish that familiarity persisted and allowed for calling out of falsehoods when they inevitably appear. I mean, the quote that CIG "was forced to confirm [...] that no such switch had taken place" is literally a lie, but if anyone points that out in comments--after more susceptible readers have accepted it as fact based on the posting--they're labeled fanboys or worse.

I readily admit--again--that I may be asking too much and that even cursory fact-checking just isn't reasonable to expect; all I can do is express my concern (see: frustration) and hope for the best. Blue's has been my chief source of game news for many years and I don't expect that to change; I just wish we could head off the shitstorm that is every CIG/Crytek post.

I'd GLADLY do it again. He's here for one reason and attacks regularly - the difference is most of us don't report stuff that could be seen as hurting feelings.

I've never reported any post by anyone, blue can confirm this. What you say here or there means nothing to me. But to think that someone who only post on one topic and only in the last 5 years cannot be someone who has been reading this site since 97ish is and I have to say it because the term fits to use of his actions..Moronic. So get over yourself.

You might be right, it appears Voodoo may have been the sensitive one, my apologies on that if so!

But yes, that is exactly what I am claiming. I mean, clearly you've been coming here for decades, but were only drawn into conversation on SC, as opposed to getting mad and defending this when you found it (is a /s needed ?). And even if it isn't true (I doubt that.) nothing changes your (and others...) rabid, insult laden desire to "beat" the SC deniers and detractors.

It's cult like. Hell it brought you in to fight here after "`15 years". There's a reason why it's pointed out as such. Hell Blue made a comment earlier about these account specifically... I can't recall that EVER being an issue here before.

All I see are people who created a union to get rich without actually doing anything good.

Unions are trash these days. They hide crappy employees under seniority umbrellas and grievances.


Here is the self destructive mentality common in non-millionaire people these days, mostly in the US, but other countries also. "Screw Unions, I want to be fired at any time, for any reason, and work 7 days a week, 60 hours a day for no extra pay!"

Unions are a necessary evil. Sure, some scammers skate by, but without unions, workers have zero protections and usually no bargaining power at all.

Any protections you currently DO have at any job is most likely due to the historical work of unions. Why people continually want to erode their own rights and protections, nobody can logically explain.


I laugh when I see people upset at unions and their wages.

"This guy makes $X/hr? But that's basically what I make and I went to school for X years longer than him! He needs to earn less I earned this!"

It's never "I deserve to earn more." It's a race to the bottom for some.

Question:

If they do unionize, are we going to see more microtransactions in games to offset the development costs?

EA CEO made about 20 million last year.. I'm sure he would love for you to believe game development would be negatively impacted by him having to provide a better work environment.

Ya it'll be unnoticeable to them, but if it rationalizes a new micro transaction/further revenue I bet they do it and blame the unionization.

We're saying that's the ONLY reason some are here, and will lie to try and avoid that fact.
As Voodoo already pointed out, there's nothing wrong with that. If someone's motivated to post, even including creating an account to do so, because of the insane amount of misinformation and zealotry in every Star Citizen thread, then who are you to say their opinions aren't valid? There's a person behind every new account whose opinion is equally as valid as yours--moreso, I'd argue, if theirs is grounded in objective reality.

Take a look at my own post history over the past eight years. Notice how most are about Star Citizen? That's not because it's the topic I'm most interested in, but because of all the unfounded claims and outright lies that parade as "facts" in these threads. I actually care about things like skepticism and truth and rationality and it pisses me off to no end when I see people parroting this garbage without doing the bare minimum of fact-checking. I try to avoid SC threads for that reason, but sometimes curiosity gets the better of me. That's when you see those strings of posts periodically in my history.

I promise you, I'd much rather rational discourse was the norm so I could happily not feel the need to comment.

I've already said there is nothing wrong with it. And I also said calling out their wishes as non-materializing fantasies is as well. This isn't a SC safe space you know ? They have forums if you want that.

Rational disclosure? You and Steve piled on Blue for posting an article, because it didn't contain what YOU guys wanted from a DIFFERENT article that wasn't submitted. From "false facts" and "alternative facts" because it upset you he's doing what he's done for decades. You want people to agree and move on, anything else is an attack on the topic YOU find worth discussing.

I mean... as he starts AGAIN with it.... But hey, everyone else is at fault. I get it. We're all meanies picking on the guy who came here to and does nothing but fight.

Again, that's not a crime though. If someone wants to make an account to defend CIG from your shitposts, that's not a problem.

Nice revisionist history there, but wrong. You were making personal attacks against me multiple times, and *I* reported them multiple times since you just weren't taking the hint. Pretty much any other site you would have been banned for making repeated offenses like that. And after you made personal attacks against me, you shifted and attacked Nas. I don't know why Blue didn't remove your attacks against Nas. I can only guess he takes a stance of only the person being attacked can report the posts as personal attacks.

You and others are the aggressors here. And in true aggressor tradition, you blame the person reporting the post instead of the behavior itself. I only reported the post. Blue removed it. Talk to him about your poor behavior. I'm pretty sure he's removed posts without needing someone to report it. Where is your excuse then?

You have only yourself to blame. Nice of you to admit for everyone to see you'll continue making personal attacks against anyone you disagree with.

Blue, we were just talking about how removing comments is not necessarily stopping bad behavior. Here is Exhibit A

My "attack" (lol. Sensitive are ya?) to you is still up.

it makes sense why you're so bitter against me though since I'm "attacking" you as well... Or wait, were you the guy upset at being called an upset muffin ? Too good, I thought it was Naswulf but I could be mistaken! THAT would explain your bitterness towards my anti-SC cult crap.

I'll take this as a compliment. You defending the guy who openly attacks others (literally just warned about it...) while calling me the bad guy because I said you were upset. No sweat off my back once it's explained!

You're right. It isn't against the rules to defend a non-existent game. Just like it isn't against the rules to continually point out their fantasies. If that upsets you maybe you need to learn to ignore people.

Glass houses, Dacron, glass houses. How many comments have you had removed because you're unable to restrain yourself attacking people who support the game? And not just you either. it's the anti-CIG crowd that can't seem to play nice with others and have had to have Blue step in and remove comments.

Supporting CIG is not a crime. Get over yourself. Making personal attacks, however, does violate Blue's ToS. You have no high ground to stand on.

No one said it was.

I think his objection, unkindly phrased though it was, is that he feels news outlets should not just report claims, but point out when those claims are entirely contrary to reality.

As someone who doesn't typically jump into SC threads, I think this point of view is terrible -- everyone who isn't with you is against you. [...] But if you think sites shouldn't be allowed to report the actual court filings without editorializing, then I see you as the slanted bad guy.
If advocating for responsible reporting makes me the bad guy then I'll wear that with pride. When reporting on a claim that is a known and easily demonstrable lie, I don't feel it's too much to ask that it be pointed out as such. It's the difference between simply quoting a ridiculous wind power claim and prefacing it with "So-and-so claimed" it was true. In this SC story at least Blue included the text "Word is:", not that it stopped the regulars from eating it up as fact.

Maybe you're right. Maybe I'm the bad guy and it's unreasonable to want bullshit claims to be called out, but after witnessing the advent of alternative facts I find myself wishing for a sea change in how we relay information, even when it concerns something as trivial as a video game.

Then submit a further detailed, newer article to be posted.

Whining you don't like what was posted is useless.

And calling it a bullshit claim, when it was copy & pasted verbatim is disingenuous at best.

Oh, this was the thing where the motion to dismiss was denied, and all the people that (perhaps rightfully, but in some cases, jealously) hate Star Citizen took that to mean that the case was decided, even though a motion to dismiss is filed in literally every single lawsuit and denied more often than not, because it isn't evaluating the facts of the case.

That was a fun thread. So many people so badly want something to be true that they latch on to bad evidence as gospel. A motion to dismiss only has meaning if it's granted.

That's the one!

A little knowledge is a dangerous thing.
