#63 #savetf2 in TF2 General Discussion

I took the bait a lot starting out here, so it became easy up-frags to hate on me. It doesn't bother me much anymore, you learn to deal with it.

I speak nothing of my own achievements, and sorry for causing this discussion to veer off. Don't think of me - think of all the best people this game has ever had. We tried real hard, with real tangible communication to Valve for years. "The Letter" from the community which was a big deal at the time. We did Fully Charged for the longest time with enigma and whatnot. Documentaries, we had Jill on our friends list and shit, guys like vnn went and got to speak to guys like Dave Riller, endless Valve visits from Dane, sigafoo, b4nny, whoever. We fought real hard too - the Extines and Langes. That was my only point. Many people stuck around a LONG time waiting for movement. I think for many of us who have been around a long time, we see this less optimistically and more realistically 6 years later. Not that we want to, but you start to grow that acceptance after a while - at least in my experience.

I'm glad there's interest. I played this game the better part of 13 years. I'm sure we enjoy it just the same. I just don't want to be here in 2032 seeing the same hashtag, you know?

brodyGetawhaleit's cutethe one upside of the game dying is i wouldnt have to read your shitass posts for the rest of my life you smug bald freak

We spoke to Valve directly for 3 years about this topic. It took us a long time to recognize nothing was possible, and to finally move on. Seeing history repeat itself is endearing - at least people care. But to say we've been down this road is an understatement, to say the least.

#24 On the verge of uninstalling tf2 in TF2 General Discussion

why do you need to uninstall? i just never touch it, the urge rarely comes up, but if i want to jump or like. sell items or whatever, i'll just fire it up. do you still have a strong urge to play? or do you just need the disk space?

#180 why dafuqwizat didn't cheat: in TF2 General Discussion

When they caught vlad cheating in 2016, he admitted to using LMAOBox but pretended he thought it was just a training tool. UGC forums are dead nowadays but he said something like "When I heard of LMAOBox, it sounded too good to be true. Get good with little effort? Why WOULDN'T I want that?"

I liked that stupid defense better than whatever this shit is

#245 yomps has passed away. in TF2 General Discussion

Gutted. Shocked.

Let's find ways to show people we love and care about them, way more - as much as we can. Family, friends, fellow gamers, whoever we care about. Because any day could be our last. We need each other now, in 2020, during these challenging times, more than we ever have. It's not weak or lame or pointless to just reach out to people and see how they're doing - and you never know what pain someone might be hiding. Remember the ones who seem like they're doing the best, may be the ones hurting most of all. Many of the people who feel the most alone, are the ones you'd never guess. (Most other thoughts I've had have been mentioned already.)

I hope he had some small idea of just how many people he influenced, and how many truly looked up to him and wanted to be like him. It's not lip service, he really was one of our best people.

We're all human beings just trying our best. Have you been influenced positively in a similar way by a gamer? Has someone had a huge impact on you and your gaming? Maybe consider reaching out to them sometime soon with a quick simple private message, just to let them know or maybe brighten their day. You can never put too much positive into this world. We could all use a little more.

#68 Any confirmed corona cases in the tf2 community? in Off Topic
loot
This is all made worse by the fact that the Canadian govt & state media are still telling massive lies like "masks don't protect you or prevent spread" and "you are only contagious when you have symptoms."

I would be curious to see an example of an official saying the second phrase. I find it hard to believe that advice would be given by anybody worth listening to. It's fine to list real things but that feels like embellishment.

#119 Remove NURBEY from the Live Streams list please! in Site Discussion
Adnurakthank you getawhale for reminding me that paedophiles are human beings, this is truly the dose of common sense I needed

The message is not "pedophiles are human beings too"

The message is "let's not turn this thread into talking about how much you all hate trans people and how disgusting they are"

Again, if you need clarification, I'm very reachable

zheep

If you'd like to know anything about me, about who I really am as a person, I welcome you to reach out and speak to me one on one

If you'd rather keep misinterpreting or mischaracterizing things I've said or done, I welcome you to keep doing that. It's the trend around here, lots of fun.

I reflected long and hard on the wording I chose for my post. Did you read it?

To be clear, no, you are wrong. I have zero percent support for this person, I am disgusted by it all, and I was absolutely, unequivocally, not playing devil's advocate at all.

I am against transphobia, the end. I would also speak up similarly if someone picked out a black criminal and called them all slurs, or an Asian person, or if they tried to imply all disabled people were revolting freaks because a guy in a wheelchair committed a crime, or some other similar thing.

The summary of my post, to condense it down, would be "It is not right or fair to call all trans people revolting freaks when one of them commits a crime." Do you agree with that? Or disagree? That was the essence of my post. This is what I see on Twitter quite a bit, and it disgusts me. This shit is just the same as hating blacks or hating women or hating gays, it's just the most modern version of it.

If it's difficult for you to imagine these two conditions existing at once, "Being against a pedophile/child groomer" and "Being against transphobia" then that is your problem and not mine. But to clarify, you have made the wrong conclusion here. I'm just letting you know.

I'll add that funhaver is probably on the right track - if my post was attached to some random username, the reactions would not be the same. So I will take responsibility for making the mistake of posting on TFTV.

HerpTimwhy are people still playing devil's advocate for this revolting queer freak

Chief..

Everyone involved in this situation is a human being. We can fully and completely condemn and decry the words and actions of these people without sinking to the level of calling them fuckin weird crazy freaks, or implying they're subhuman or whatever you're going for. We haven't thrown out basic human decency yet. You can give your take or opinion without tossing your own prejudices and hatred on this shitpile. There's a way to ask why people are defending her, without denigrating or dehumanizing her.

When a trans person does terrible or illegal things, like in this case, it's not an invitation for every young man to get online and declare that all of them are disgusting freaks. That's not the case. That ain't it. I've seen too much of that in the past year in my online travels, to be really frank.

As angry and shocked as we all were, and as weird and challenging of a time as this was for us all to process, no level-headed person came out saying she's an animal or a circus freak. You are failing to really understand the situation and how or why this all happened if that's your takeaway, imho. Maybe this matters to you, maybe not. Just my take on the reason for your downvotes.
