#90 Ban Pred and Degu v2 in Off Topic
Gazquintoshyou're still free to name whenever someone's been harassed, they've reported it to the admins and it's gone unpunished, otherwise you might as well stop pretending to be the saint that sees the big picture where admins are only biased towards certain people
This happened numerous times on TFTV, Twitter and even their own website. I don't see why I should name these situations. My point is that people did not care previously. You imply that ETF2L punished these kind of people before, but consider that a minor warning for flaming isn't the same as a deduction in prize money plus a 2-month and a 12-month ban. The site treated this kind of harassment pretty lightly, but I don't see why only now it's justified that they get excluded from the competition and a 50% prize deduction because it happened to Uberchain instead of Mr. Dude123. This decision is HIGHLY biased and the punishments are only this heavy because it is a well known person.

So what do you think SHOULD have happened? Should we just have given Degu and Pred a slap on the wrists? What about the next time something like this happens? Wrist slapped again? When should we actually start caring about how the community interacts with each other and the outside world?

scrabUberchain's a lovely person and it was very brave of her to speak out about what happened. That said, all degu meant by the image, as he explained in several follow up tweets, was that he didn't think twitter was the place to talk about that kind of thing and that she should go to the police instead.

I doubt that. If that was really the case, what he could've done is instead asked her if she's filed a report yet. Besides, how is anyone supposed to get "You should talk to authorities instead of posting this on Twitter" from an image containing just a log off button?

Also if you think 'liking' a tweet automatically means you endorse what it contains you're simply wrong.

I very well could be wrong there and I definitely don't think this is always the case, but I don't know how to interpret it in this scenario as anything else than agreeing with what he said, letalone as a disagreement with the tweet.

SetsulThis is TF2, so more than 4 cores won't help.

Mastercomfig seems to conflict with this information considering they tell you to use the `-threads` launch option if you have 8 threads or more. So, is this still accurate? Should I still be looking for quad-thread CPUs with good single-threaded performance over quad-core hyperthreaded CPUs?

scrabDon't agree with harrassing people but literally all degu did was post this image
in reply to uberchain's tweet, is that seriously worth a 2 month ban?

As a dismissive response to uberchain finally having built up the courage to speak out about a long-drawn series of issues regarding harassment and sexual abuse while at the same time endorsing Pred's ridiculous comment?

I think it is, and those on the ETF2L staff think so too it seems.

Thank you. I'm happy to hear that ETF2L has this stance on the matter and that they are willing to improve the atmosphere within the community.

So before this thread turns into a "Fuck Doomsday for saying gay and insulting comp players" thread:

Are people agreed on that professionalism in competitive TF2 should be something that should be endorsed/enforced?

faust_Tino_Slippery slope fallacy. No one is getting banned for stuff like that.
um yea? because no one has been getting banned for saying slurs, as is the purpose for these threads? i mean in the future, as in yet to happen.

I don't understand this comment. This thread is meant to shine light upon this issue among other things isn't it? And Pred's one of the people that now has been banned for shit like this, right?

DarkNecridThis has been something I've been thinking about myself albeit I'm not on your level of useful and only moderate TrueTF2 on Reddit.

Don't short sell yourself. Your job's an important one too.

MakyAzazel-Makyif we start banning players who said dumb and sexist things, then many members of the community, including myself, would be banned. mad_dogWhat about all the people saying the N word? should we ban them??
thank you both for these excellent suggestions. yes. ban hammer

The narrative that we can just ban people because they think differently, needs to stop. Just because I have a differing opinion then you doesn't mean you have the right to ban me or anyone else.

There's a massive difference between people having a different opinion on matters regarding anything ranging from gender, race and sexuality and people flat-out doing their best to harass and ostricize people of certain races, genders and sexualities from the community.

Are racists not people too?

They're not. There you go.

You know damn well what's implied here man. Don't nitpick about this shit.

MattCVThat being said, the edgy boi humour displayed by the thirdies on twitter was in very poor taste, Pred is indefensible but wouldn't it be a bit much to perma ban someone for telling someone to log off?

I think the point in the OP is that degu, in addition to the relatively minor "log off" joke, also condones Pred's comment by liking it.

Do we know the names of the people who, you know, actually physically and emotionally abused Uberchain, sexually even, so that we can ban them too?

I'm just asking because, like, I don't know if I'm just living in a different reality or something but where's the naming and shaming for actual sexual predators? Uberchain's mentioned she's not ready to do so yet.

Please understand it takes a tremendous amount of courage to speak up about something like this even anonymously.
