But it's fun how we always know which men on this site will get their panties ruffled at a woman saying they don't like something said to them. Always the same guys outraged over a woman saying something isn't appropriate.

Not as fun[sic] as you always playing the man when you have no response to being called out on your bullshit - and bonus points for doing it in the most arrogant and insufferable way possible. How is that working out for you?

Probably because the violence is simulated while the harassment is real?

The terrible harassment of being awkwardly hit on by a child...

So you're saying the minor would be treating her the same way were she a male? Ok.

No, what is the problem with that exactly? Will the sexes not be equal until everyone is bisexual?

Was finally able to get LinuxMint to install smoothly. Anyone use anything else they really like? Not married to this yet.

I'm between distros myself but another one to try might be Manjaro. Not as polished as Ubuntu/Mint but the rolling updates make life easier long term.

That is actually a surprisingly good article, goes onto some technical detail without being to overwhelming.

I really don't think that it is appropriate to share political thoughts on a gaming site. I just wish posters would refrain from such.

You must be new here

But yes I have noticed that the American political commentariate seems to be even more insufferable than usual. Probably a result of the social isolation I guess.

Hopefully that is an unfunded fear.

Or perhaps a funded fear eh eReAs3r

If only there were a way to have open standards that everyone could use. That would stop the post Microsoft Armageddon I'm sure.

I suspect however that this is only the first step in Microsoft's plan.

The Orville is a combination of the least funny Family Guy episode you've ever seen mated to Ted 2 in Space. It doesn't match the cutting room floor clippings from Galaxy Quest in scope, humor or story.
A warm caffeine free flat diet Coke is more palatable.

Considering the source, I'll take this as a glowing recommendation.

Google Bans Infowars Android App Over Coronavirus Claims.

Same as the flu, amirite?

Has Alex Jones ever claimed that? Seems to be more bioweapon conspiracy theory and claims that a cure is being suppressed from a quick scan of his Bitchute channel.

The real problem activist journalists in gaming media have is that games aren't political in the specific way they want them to be. Hence goofy, pointless articles like this are written every few months as the subject arises in one way or another.

This is spot on.

One of the things that tends to happen in this conversation is that "political" tends to get confused with "propaganda". It is correct that politics does bleed into everything and every act has a political dimension. Good art will acknowledge this and engage with it in a way that is interesting and thought provoking. Propaganda is an attempted cultural and psychological hijack to convince the audience of some political position, and I think it is this that annoys people - particularly when it is done badly.

By confusing the two you get to claim that everything is political, thus propaganda and should therefore be the "correct" sort of propaganda.

Yes there is a blurry line between them and there are also other things going on here as well, such as preaching to the converted "virtue signalling". I'm also not sure how well it applies to the article in question because I didn't read it particularly closely (but this usually doesn't stop a good internet rant, and it isn't going to stop me!).

Also, why would you leave? It's not like you won't find people with similar views anywhere you go. Are you going to leave the internet? Blues doesn't have a corner on the market when it comes to guys like Cutter.

Funnily enough I'm pretty close to leaving myself due to the increasingly heavy handed censorship. I'm sure there are other sites where I can get my semi-regular Star Citizen lulz.

So Facebook is creating an online panel just like Qualtrics and a host of other companies, oh the horror. Hold me while I touch my forehead and faint.

Yes Facebook is still evil.

Yes Mashable is still trash.
