I've seen that quite a few times too. Rather than simply defending a minority, some people turn it around and basically end up saying "it's not my gender/race/sexuality that's bad. It's yours!" or something along those lines.

There probably isn't much redemption to be had since people will always be arguing on here. But it seems like the original posters of the forum topics are never banned, reprimanded or have their topics removed.

From personal experience, I've seen very offensive posts on here, as well posts that basically promote illegal activities such as drug-taking. I've had people call me incredibly offensive things and even told me to go kill myself. But that's fine apparently. I guess it depends who does it. Rules for some people are different to rules for others. I imagine paying members probably get away with anything since they're paying money for CR.


I think it's because people dismiss that the tone and phrasing of responses is often more important than they think. Being disrespectful and rigid and uncompromising turns discussions about issues into competitions for personal victory. I personally don't see a problem with anyone's opinion as long as they arrive at their conclusion in a logical and thoughtful way, and they acknowledge decent points that their opposition raises.

It's sort of normal for discussions to be derailed or to turn into flame wars, but you sort of get used to it. Some people bring up very good points and those should be the takeaways from these discussions, even if those points might not be directly related to the topic.

You know I was going through an modding this thread.... Then I realized literally all but one post on a page I was reviewing was nothing but personal insults, bile, and a general embarrassment to the CR community.

If that's all this thread is going to be I see absolutely no reason in letting it stand.

Doing the forums a favor, locked and closed.

Hold up...why? -_-


Because no one reported it, I didn't see it (until now), and tbh, it's fairly easy to understand "you are a waste of time" as "responding to you is a waste of my time" which to me is not the same kind of direct insult.

That said, now that you've brought it to my attention, I've edited the post in question to remove the troublesome phrase.
