Ban everyone?

No wait, then the Illuminati would come after me!
I imagine the temptation is pretty big.

OT: So a guy who joined the site on the 17th has managed to make a thread that has earned his account the "On Fire Forum Inferno badge" with no difficulty.

I had to wait nearly a year to earn one myself.



God, I hate these controversy threads. I'm just waiting for the day for when mods are told to throw them into R&P.

Well, back to looking for fun threads on OT.

That's what I meant to say but this is what happens when you have 13 tabs open and you don't care enough about controversy to dwell on a post for long. >.<

(...)I'm just a bit sad about the existence of that thread, so I gently poke fun at it via feigned disinterest. See how clever and subtle I am?

I'm SUPER clever and subtle.
You have failed to mention your pleasingly rotund frame and Angelina Jolie-esque lips. You gorgeous darling.

Incidentally, I think I must have blown a fuse in my brain at some point in the past, because I no longer feel any compunction whatsoever from speaking to people like that. I feel like the man who realized he could sit comfortably anywhere. Well, stay black now! :D

OT: First thing's first, let's celebrate with music:

Well said by m'colleague, which brings me to my second point: the orgies...

I'm actually kind of bewildered by it. Out of all the controversies, that's the one to explode?
It hits home the most. It makes us all think what other kinds of shit is being covered up by gaming journalists. It makes us wonder how much more corruption is in the industry. We all knew it was bad before, but this gave us all a clear message that it is far worse than we have thought.

As a wise man did say: "You can do it, put your ass into it"

We did it.

We put our ass(es) into it.

To celebrate- forum wide strip poker, with hookers (of all sexes,orientations and ethnicities of course.) and ALL OF THE SCOTCH.

or fruit shoots.

I've always felt these types of threads belong in Religion and Politics.

I'm actually not familiar. The thread sounded celebrity gossipy, so I didn't look.
Who is Zoe Quinn and why should I care?

Challenge the thread to the ice bucket challenge? I'd say it's (in)famous enough by this point.

More than just the 'On Fire' badge.
Man, I'm kinda envious, not gonna lie.

Whoo congrats Escapists!
And all for a thread who's topic is so...*holds up weakened flame shield*...er...not a very big deal.
I guess it helps that the topic is being censored everywhere else, and "covers" a bunch of things but still.

I was hoping I could really be into the next big Escapist shit-storm since Extra Credits or the MassEffect 3 ending thingy, since I joined. Instead I got this...meh.

I remember seeing it a few days ago at 2000 posts, and now it's over 4000 posts. At this rate, we will get to the point that it will only get derailed once people can start making DBZ jokes about the post counts.

I was going to try to take a crack at reading through all the comments, but there's a limit to my insanity, and if I tried to read through all of them, I would have to take frequent breaks just to make sure I get through it, so I might do it when I'm bored.

As for the fact it reached that mile stone in that short of time, I'll say it's impressive, but it would be even more if it was one that wasn't a controversial topic that had it happen. Like some one made a topic about puppies and it hit this many posts in that time.

Now if you will excuse me, I got other things to do to avoid going into that thread.

Congratulations Escapists! [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WtOPacnjxLU]


You really care about the important issues. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go make a rant about how Sarkeesian is trying to take away my vidya games.

I've been in there a fair bit myself.

What I can tell you is it moves quickly and this is mostly due to there being two or three distinct conversations going on at once, plus a lot of requisite asshattery and some posts being eaten up by people asking to keep things on topic.

One conversation is focused on the sex aspect.

One conversation is focused on the misdeeds aspect not pertaining to sex.

One conversation is focused upon journalistic integrity.

There have been others flaring up here and there but they either peter out as being non relevant, join in with one of the others and occasionally, just to make matters more confusing, they spill into each other.
Then you have late entrants who ask to be filled in due to the overwhelming size of the thread.

The result of this thread not existing would be an overspill into other places where it doesn't belong

Think of it as a coral people.
Or a ballpit.
It's there to keep it all locked up for those that don't want it, and there to run around in if you do.

In fairness to it all, whatever your opinion on the thread, the mods are doing a good job in there keeping all sides policed and stopping it spilling into places where it shouldn't be to the annoyance of other users like yourself.
