It is bitching. A competitive dick measuring contest to proclaim which politically leaning forum is righteous. The comments that proclaim Major Nelson or Microsoft are bad without even the effort of reading the ops post or the thread in question is the absolute best example of this. The irony is the complete lack of awareness that it is the same behavior on the opposite side of the spectrum. You take it serious.. fantastic for you. But realize that GAF was no different at one time and at time is still the same with the douchebag bait and reporting that goes on here too.It’s not bitching when there is in fact a problem.
I’ve been a member there for years and even here though I haven’t been that active till recently.
Era has been consistently good at reporting gaming news but whenever an issue is reported regarding anything to do with politics, prejudice, etc things have always circulated in the way Era has determined and if you make any so so comment that isn’t part of their agenda you might as well be banned from existence.
Issues like these shouldn’t be part of a gaming forum *period* and I know a lot of people might disagree with me but I face prejudice on a daily basis being so far away from my family because of my orientation but I’m alive and still dealing with all the hurdles life throws at me.
I’ve always looked at gaming as an escape from the hardships of life and not much else and I might be wrong in feeling this way but it’s my opinion and I take it to heart.
