Not even two months into the years and this is damn near infuriating. First there is the, in process, character assassination of a non-union anime VA just because he refused to sign some yaoi fanfiction. And, NOW, sites such as Resetera are attempting to get creators such as Katsura Hashino (The director of Persona 3-5) fired because he expresses wrongthink.

I dare someone to give me a damn good reason why I SHOULDN'T be angry about this.

Katsura Hashino is a homophobic and kinda weird piece of shit who happens to make good games, just not Catherine. Bleh. You clearly never played any of them, of that I can be certain.
I, on the other hand, finished all of his directorial efforts outside of Maken X.
Him being called out for his views on women (mostly underage girls) and nearly all aspects of LGBT culture has been overdue for over a decade. The new Catherine is a new low for him but it´s nice to see P4 under fire for the bewildering antics it pulled. The LGBT community is also turning its eye on Atlus, so it´s not only Neo-NeoGAF. Good forum btw. Much better than what came before. More than just Atlus deserve to get burned and they likely will. Hello Tecmo Koei...

And Mr. Broly. Lol. His employer did an internal investigation of him. It´s them who blacklisted him after not listening to his victims and co-workers for over a decade. I repeat again, SONY pulled the plug on him. No one can blame an SJW strawman here. Is Sony now trying to undo the industry they helped to build, top kek.

It´s a shame that the MU mods don´t give a shit about the state of the forums. No one deserves a lifetime ban from the forums more than you.

Edit: I am not German, despite adopting the nationality. Try again and my grandmother survived the Nazi siege on St. Petersburg. But nice to know that you lived through the 1930s/40s. 😮
An A+ for the amazingly incoherent whataboutisms too.

And, I would bring up the gulags, but you were far too young to experience, much less comprehend, them.

Gulags were lastly built by the Soviets not the Germans, what else is there left to say?

Edit2: The shaming of Vic by the Texas court system is coming along nicely now that I returned to clown the OP some more. He will be buried by his victims after he loses the last shred of his public persona safety net in a few weeks. 2 decades too late but still.

Let me get this straight, you're okay with someone, from another country, on another continent, which is across the world, and expresses a common viewpoint in said country/region/continent, GETTING FIRED BECAUSE OF HIS VIEWS?!? Didn't your people (Germans) spend the last 75 years apologizing for pull stunts such as this?
Spoiler (mouse over to view)

I know I'm quite disgusted because America is suppose to be "The land of the free", yet it seems like Americans are the first ones to pull out the "World Police" baton and attack foreigners for having the "wrong" belief.

Then it should be pretty simple to find evidence that Vic was an asshole. Instead, people are finding evidence that he's protected anime fans, that he's been under attack for several years without any proof to back it up, and anyone who sides with Vic is getting threatened or silenced. Along with that, evidence has come out about how the entire event was a one big collaboration, and that Monica Rial and Jamie Marchi are facing allegations of their own.

A barely over single page thread taken as something willed by the general consensus of the forum is certainly a take. Its almost as if you didn't even read what you posted, seeing as majority of the posts are actually critical of the opening post and literally zero posts call for the composers removal.

Your hate-boner seems to be obscuring your vision.

The OP, probably.

Imdb and Wikipedia apparently doxed Wes Craven due to point out that he started his career doing porn. Mangaupdates is doxing the authors of Black Lagoon, Gunslinger Girl, Hellsing, etc. by pointing out the same. When will the oppression that is caused by the freedom of speech and research stop? When will it stop Baalzebup? Prey-prey-make-wikipedia-go-away!

The tone of the closed thread is deeply confused, to say the least, and quickly turned against the OP. What was he even trying? You gonna love NeoNeoGAF. They have a friendly mod team that knows how to moderate (in 98% of all cases), there is ZERO tolerantly for abuse or spreading misinformation, the top posters all know their shit and actual devs show up daily. The whole Digital Foundry team is on resetera! No wonder it managed to become the biggest gaming forum on the internet within about a year. It truly sucks that such a place doesn´t exist for comics culture.

PS: Falcom released Singa´s credits if I got it right and the research was clearly done by Japanese fans. Japan is attacking itself everyone! The End Times have come... 🤣 .

A couple of quick questions:

First does the "general consensus" of a site's users obsolve it of any wrong doing? Last I remember, according to you guys, it doesn't. And, there are quite a few users calling for the guys removal, going on about how "Falcom should do better". Also, this isn't the first time that the site has done this (See OP for THIS thread).

Second, I am pleased to see that there are enough users on the site that even consider the entire action of the thread to be quite heinous, however I do find it questionable that the thread was only locked. Why wasn't it removed, or the OP banned? The thread is still accessible as of this post. And, what about when other users on the site can face extremely harsh punishments for much smaller actions (Such as making the equivalent of a typo). Also, why was the thread locked by OP request, not by a mod? Doesn't the site administration consider the doxxing of person to be a seriously offense?

I looked at the link given to ResetEra. I'm amazed that the "Land of the Free" and the country most devoted to freedom of speech has spawned ANOTHER of these holy crusades, which seems to have infected Japan (?).

Take this tip from an ancient person who grew up in the 1950s (!). When you let any religion or social activist group, or any other kind of group, have the right to censor your media, you are on the road to misery.

They get thrilled when they win, and tighten the screws down more, and more later, indefinitely. Pretty soon there are so many things you aren't allowed to say or print, you can't keep track of them. I had to grow up under that kind of stuff.

Don't go down this track AGAIN.

Could you expand on that?

The reason I ask is because the only things that I know about happening in the 50's is the almost completely fabricated red scare where McCarthy did nothing wrong (Except reveal an investigation that wasn't suppose to exist), comics and television receiving censorship because "Muh children" or because it offends the advertisers, and the ideological subversion of science fiction that was already well underway. In my search, it seems like events that took place between the nuking of Japan to Obama getting in office is much of a blur in trying to find "historical fact" of what took place (Unless someone devotes a year to the study on one singular subject).
