"Silence isn't complicity. Silence might also be not letting a campaign of hate and chaos be taken seriously by not giving it a place at the table." this is basically what I've been saying since day one. Thanks for this Jeff.

@spyder335: We all have done that. And many of us have played postal. I dunno, after watching the trailer I feel like there's no way in hell they're taking themselves seriously. But even so, it's really gross. I've been struggling all day about if I would ever actually play it.
As I've been saying all day on other sites, they have every right to make this game, and I have every right to think it's fucking disgusting. I just don't see why this was made but I'm pretty sure it's all a plan for publicity, and damn did they get that.
I think he looks really great. He's quite handsome and seems a bit more realistic than Charlie
Gangnam Style, Desperado by The Eagles, Most songs off of Led Zeppelin IV. All Fleetwood Mac. Basically if the Classic Vinyl station on Sirius plays it every 2 minutes, I can't listen to it anymore. Also Hey Brother by avicii is super played out now.
I'll add my voice to this:
The heavy-handed moderation needs to stop. This isn't just about what's happening now--I had it out with Rorie in PMs a while back about this, and now it's just becoming absurd. I can't even talk about the details about the most major story happening in gaming news because someone might accidentally misogyny. Entire threads are getting blown away where 99% of the discussion had nothing to do with what is happening. Fucking ridiculous.
I don't see the point in engaging in discussion in this environment. Posts are getting vaporized and the mods haven't even bothered to explain themselves with a simple sticky.
This is what i was trying to say last night but was waaaay too tired to make the point coherently.
It feels like a police state sometimes, i get the mods have a tough job. I was a mod for years on different forums and its a thankless job. But its being taken too far here and i don't see it changing soon. Not all news threads are going to kick off with misogyny/racism.
This is pretty much my thoughts as well. As a mod on a few other websites, one of which gets a ton of traffic at times, I understand that moderators do so at their discretion. But sometimes things just go a bit far. I'm guilt of it myself, you want to keep the peace so you delete anything even remotely inflammatory, but I have had comments deleted that I didn't feel were worth that, and I've seen others as well. I'm not saying the moderators are bad, in fact, Giant Bomb has some of the best moderation I've seen. Just, maybe hash out some actual rules on what counts as "Don't be a dick." That's all.
