Codex has gotten too edgy and has declined considerably

    Shut up, newfag. You probably think you joined during golden age and then everything declined LOL. You were the fucking decline. Codex was never mostly right or left, there were people of all kinds all the time (well, at least since I joined). You suffer from some selective memory.
    Only cuck devs like MCA who deserve what they get for being spineless retards.

    Have you ever checked these subforums?:
    https://rpgcodex.net/forums/forums/codex-workshop.37/
    https://rpgcodex.net/forums/categories/hosted-rpg-forums.49/

    They are better and more alive than ever before. I'd rather have quality devs (even if their games are not necessarily quality) who can discuss with people than cowards who follow the only correct way of thinking and run away at the mere possibility of being criticized or having to read unpleasant posts.



    Censor one censor all. If you censor one person because they are "too nazi" then it's a precedence that will eventually lead to many being banned because they are too *something*. Literally what happened to other forums.

    Someone hating "niggers" or "kikes" here is annoying and retarded, but why stop there then? What about Warpig retard who hates women and Poles? Does he get censored too? Or is hating women and Poles okay but hating blacks and Jews not? Why not ban those who spread Chinese propaganda and China does nothing wrong just tries to have influence? Or anti-Chinese one and China literally genocides ethnic groups and made corona to kill us all? What about our vatniks who say Stalin might have done some wrong but overall led to something better than capitalism and an immense suffering and starvation under communism was for the better? What about our 'murricans who would throw all Mexicans over the wall?

    I despise lots of ideas shared on the codex, but I'd never censor them. Clashes of various ideas is what makes this place better and more neutral than any other place I've ever seen on the internet. Reading contrary opinions is what helps this place grow and lead to meaningful discussions even among shitposts. Hence I also never put on ignore anybody except people who put me on ignore first.

    It's good enough as it is, let's not fuck this one place up. The last stand. Otherwise I'll have nothing interesting on the Internet to read.

    A quick TL;DR:
    The sites owner was accused of sexual harassment => moderators threw a hissy fit and left the site => shortly thereafter the Neogaf goes down => "former" members started Resetera

    As far as I know the sexual harassment allegations went nowhere and the site came back and was fine for a while, they even made a dedicated "Politics" category. However they again went the full retard route after the capitol riots.

    Oh, yeah I forgot about that. They also had ties to those discord grooming gangs. OAG used to keep tabs on that but I have not checked that site since Billy sold it off. So yeah, they truly are the bastion of "moderate views".

    Yes, after that attack they seemed to have pulled their head out their collective asses but after the DC riot this is the pinned statement by the staff under politics:
    Show Spoiler
    Hi everyone. We've had a relaxed moderation style for a while now on Politics, but in light of recent events at the Capitol, we'll no longer be tolerating fringe content or conspiracy theories on the Politics forum. It could previously be looked at as fun and games, but now there's no way to justify its presence here in any quantity. Keep it to mainstream sources and positions. That also goes for "sacred landslide" stolen election conspiracies.

    Thanks.


    Even if the other threads are not as bad this is a train of though that goes in one direction and I think we all know where it goes.

    Good. I want them to start banning people for mentioning RPGC*d*x in 2021 and to have mental breakdowns and suicide attempts upon encountering that combination of letters by 2022.

    So what happened in 2018....What was the event that made the codex more blacklisted than ever, a site mostly covering obsidian news. I know ! "Company News - Obsidian reportedly about to be acquired by Microsoft | rpgcodex > Forum RPG które Polacy kochają"
    Since inxile was bought fargo doesnt even answer to felipepe tweets either . Its clearly in microsoft policies that the codex is of ill repute and should be blacklisted, its a small microcosm word spread out fast, everyone follows the same guideliness.

    We caught a lot of flak for Avellone's expose on Obsidian in May 2018. The internet mostly took Obsidian's side.

    I certainly remember big subreddits shit talking both Codex and Avellone at the time.

    One half of the uniparty took back the congress, and the woke crazies have bought into "blue wave" and switched from depressive to maniacal phase.

    Can we get a jogging shoe button?

    edit.. and to be fair to the point of the OP, I've seen an increase in this sort of "anti-defamation" tactic and I suspect its because it is working.

    What I mean by this, right now there are a lot of "right leaning" or "alt-right" social media and websites popping up as there has been an increased push in tech censorship and outright banning of conservative viewpoints that really aren't that controversial imo (like deporting illegals for example, but that might be controversial to some I guess).

    Anyways, with this context in mind, progressives are seeing their censorship tactics actually working well right now. New sites like Gab for example, will pop up, try to ban the crazier of people like stormfronters, but progressive activists will flood the site with shit tier racist shock stuff, write a story about it, then try to deplatform that site.

    They are also using this tactic on established sites that were formerly "free speech" like reddit. They want all viewpoints that run contrary to their world-view eradicated, and they have adopted a By Any Means Necessary (BAMN) approach to achieving this.

    It really is a simplistic and effective strategy because of the supportive woke media environment.

    Step 1: Make up racist stuff of your own and post it
    Step 2: Complain to a news outlet, get them to publish a story about it
    Step 3: Call banks and payment processors and such to cancel the site unless they agree to remove "racist" content.

    Moderation is complacency with extremists. You must be anti-fascist, anti-racist, anti-misogynist.

    ...you don't want to dedicate your life to the progressive cause? Yikes, we got an extremist here.
