It's funny when people are getting banned for console warring while some of the mods are console warriors

I got a warning yesterday but the warning didn't explain why, so I have to guess now. I don't remember attacking anyone.

I like Sony better than MS and I generally don't like MS vision for the console market, I don't think there's anything wrong with this view, it's a completely fair opinion to have, just as it's fair for someone to love Gamepass and cheer and beg for more publishers being acquired (I guess).

To me the mature thing is to be able to handle criticism of the company/game you like more or different opinions or even some jokes without getting into personal attacks. But I think you can get away with attacking people as long as you label that person a fanboy beforehand.

Anyway, maybe I just got the wrong impression.
we should ask mods to have a day for each Q ...where everything is possibile ..something like The Purge (the movie) ahahah

This thread has a lot of truth in it. Made a general statement, people liked the post and then it gets deleted by some triggered mod because I don't dick ride Sony or any of these fucking companies. It's like the site is ran and sponsored by Sony, so if you call them out on bullshit, the Sony warrior mod police come out in full force. Do better, GAF Mods.

With that, have a nice day folks!

All the peeps bitchin about "sony dick riding" to me sound like "don't talk about the gaming company responsible for over 40% of all gaming revenue and put out constant content" . . . it's not sony's fault the competition has been weak lately. Hopefully the upcoming MS show blows minds.

The irony that there isn't any Greatness in this comment at all.

If you want to see shitty modding in all it's glory, i encourage you to make a REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE account and go there.

Oh, no argument there. But we can't discount some of the mods here in GAF be on some wild shit. But since that deleted post was my first infraction, its water under the bridge for me. Not trippin' off that at all. Just thought I'd share a mild observation that I saw.

All you brave warriors fighting for a corporation while having a sense of superiority because your fellow person chose another brand of electronic toy, godspeed. All of you warriors that suck the thick soybean milkshake out of the admiration you feel in your loins for a game company, bless you. You entertain me everyday. Never stop posting. Your takes are always piping hot. Let us not forget the console warrior legend, Pissed Off "Nintendo Shitcube" Angry Gamer. In his name, Amen.

Thinking everybody is a cuck, getting pissed about a forum ban, etc. is one thing. But to actually go through with making a dumb post asking to get banned shows he has zero self restraint and couldn’t just leave the forum without making a grand show of it. Dude needs mental help.

Do you think we are playing by different rules? I'm a big Sony fan and I've done had posts and threads deleted

Reminder that old moderation back in the glory days used to run the CBOAT account as confirmed by Zhuge and a former mod. Although it became apparent eventually to anyone with a brain.

LMAO I find actually the majority of bans are the Sony warriors. God bless the mods!
Statistically that would make sense, there are probably more Sony warriors overall since PlayStation is a bigger brand globally.

It's pretty funny this thread opened with a user accusing the mods of being biased in favor of Microsoft and then someone later accusing the mods of being biased for Sony.
 
Maybe the mods could put a tags on known fanboys. Something like "known Pony. Will shit on Xbox" or "Warning Xbot. Will disrupt Sony threads" then when they do post in threads about the console they don't like it will reduce the effect of what they say and they might not then post what they were going to.

You got an ignore list for those people. Sometimes you miss an interesting topic or have John Cena quotes, but it's totally worth it.

Nah, better for mods to remove them. Console Warriors and console warring should be treated like an ass in a restaurant. Kicked out.

Console waring to some extent will always be here, if we didn't argue and talk about game systems, why are we even here?

Trying to clean out the extreme though isn't without its risks, I have no doubt some good posters have been banned in the fallout. It is what it is.

Quite a few do have tags to that effect.
 
Just accept when your preferred console has things better than the other and when it has things that arnt as good as the other. You would be better served to not try and convince yourself and the world that a good thing on the other console really isn't that great, and put that effort into demanding the console you do prefer get it.
Last gen the PS4 was the better designed and more powerful console than the Xbox One. Oh well, xbox players could either accept that or move to the PS4. Then the PS4 Pro and the XOX came out, and the XOX smashed the PS4 in every way. More power, more and faster RAM, VRR, played HD-BR discs etc. Oh well, either accept it or move to the XOX if hardware advantage is so important to you.
This gen the consoles are more closely matched and in an environment of diminishing returns you are hardly going to see any noticeable differences.
It is what it is folks. You didn't design any of the consoles so why your pride has to be on the line I don't know.

And as an aside, remember people's, neither Sony nor MS really like you or care about you. Every decision they make, even if it is pro consumer, is done because they think it will give them an advantage over the opposition.

There should be more of it. Maybe it might embarrass people and they chill a bit on the waring.
You'd think that, but in my experience the tagged usually just whine about it and use it as further "evidence" of how biased the mods are.

Of course, just how the mods are biased depends on which fanboy you ask, but, in their minds, they are the victims. Nothing that happens to them--up to and including a ban--is or could possibly be their fault. It's all the fault of some mod who was having a bad day or is out to get their precious company.

I think people tend to get in their own narrative stream and stop seeing how a thread can look on the outside. They certainly stop appreciating other people's viewpoints.

Probably some butthurt reported you. Same happened to me few times.
It’s especially sensitive if you say anything wrong about Xbox series s. It’s like laughing at someone’s child here lol

Ya, just unfortunate but is what it is. GAF is very different than it was back in the day. You used to have to have a legit email account which helped out A LOT. Not sure why mods don't do that again.
The “legit” email was the worst thing ever. How is gmail not ok but exchange is? It was just a pain in the ass and I never wanted to use my work email

Watch out, someone will report you for "concern trolling" if you mention the S.
