I don't think taking down a mod because one of the team is guilty of something is appropriate. The content should stand on its own merits dubious as they may be if the mod doesn't break any rules. Still, I respect the developer's decision and I suspect the mod will have plenty of mirrors to download it.
100% Deepfake technology. I always thought the idea of creating believably fake video/audio was sci-fi and that there was a certain factual basis to the photographic and audio recording form. That will increasingly no longer be the case. I think the only thing that will save people from mass deception will be democratically controlled institutions to create certifiably factual videos/audio recordings so that our society is not overrun by unverifiable conspiracy bullshit.
This honestly seems like a similar situation to Blizzard where the company hits the jackpot on a single game (world of warcraft for blizzard) and over time starts to act insanely greedy (probably hedge fund managers got into positions of power at epic).
goombas are clearly an oppressed minority race in the mario universe. Have you ever noticed the striking resemblance between goombas and a certain rapper by the name of dmx? mario’s mind control powers symbolize the racial biases of modern culture; no more clearly expressed than on the streets of new donk city. nintendo could have tastefully adressed these issues in a way that respects the historical and sociological realities of the hierarchical frameworks entangled in our psychological perceptions of what “goombaness” is; instead they gleefully ignore that side of the story and present a one sided narrative. nintendo seriosly missed the mark here and created a product that is unintentionally an alt right wet dream.

Money is great. Get money and retire earlier or be prepared to retire early and work until you are dead. Reality is money is important passions have to take a back seat. Don't believe the lies of the lucky few. This is just my opinion.
