More than year ago. It’s suspect if you have a low-post count and yet you signed up more than a year. Accounts with a low-post count are typically associated with disingenuous people.
Maybe, maybe not. Post count doesn’t mean much, so let’s go after what people say rather than how often they post. There’s too much of that bullshit in here.

It's not really post count that matters, it's what threads one chooses to post in.

It's like all the users who ONLY post in Tesla and Elon Musk threads to talk about how great he is and how that diver guy is clearly a pedo.

Why is it that major Youtubers and Streamers tend to be the biggest shitbags? Boogie, DrDisrespect, JonTron, PewDiePie. It never seems to stop.
Because gamers. Gamers are shit people. This is obviously a generalization and hyperbole, but gaming is a toxic wasteland that has some good spots here and there. It's been like that for a long time. It's just so much easier to be out there nowadays with the Internet. You guys see the toxicity in these games all the time. It's rampant. Racism, sexism, whatever. The whole gamers rise up meme thing is truthful satire, lol
 
Not sure but Geoff Keighley himself posted on Era only just yesterday.
And called him his friend too on Twitter. C’mon Geoff Keighley are you going to distance yourself from this guy, if not at TGA where no doubt he’ll be accepting a personality award on behalf of his friend “TotalBiscuit” - then at least acknowledge he’s no friend.

Because the mans a racist holocaust denier. And you’re better than that.

i’m not pro-infidelity, but has drdisrespect done something else unsavoury that i’m not familiar with?

because as best we can tell he was not a serial philanderer, he made a huge mistake, was wracked by guilt over it, and has done what he had to to make it up to his wife

i don’t know what his political beliefs are but it seems random to compare him to jontron and pewdiepie

Very disappointed in TGA inviting a white supremacist enabler. Where is the best place to complain to them about this?
Checking his profile Geoff Keighley visited ERA 44 minutes ago. He's been @'ed a dozen times or more so there is no way he's not aware of this thread and its content.

If he does nothing, then I will know he is not someone I can respect. He's not someone who will do the hard thing if it's the right thing to do. Maybe he'll be telling himself that we're all a rabid, unreasonable mob who should forgive Boogie for every horrible thing he said.
 
That is most CERTAINLY a controversial sentiment. Nazi science in general made foundational contributions to the modern scientific world, that's not in doubt, but very little of the data generated in the concentration camps was rigorous enough to be useful. Mengele himself was a notorious hack scientist whose only worthwhile contribution while working in Auschwitz was harvesting organs for study from the dead and shipping them to actual professionals with consistent recordkeeping and methodology.
My favorite part of this thread has been this - debunking the rhetoric behind “both sides” arguments.

Like, the whole Mengele/Holocaust medical contributions thing. That’s something we often hear cited, but - uh oh! - turns out, the Holocaust experiments did basically fuckall! Love it.

Makes me wonder what other devils-advocate bullshit has been making the rounds for years, and how much of it is being used in these “both sides” arguments.

Until he starts marching through Charlottesville with Tiki Torches and claiming that Jewish people are devilish conspirators to the genocide of the White Race, you can't really call him a Neo Nazi or even a white supremacist.
Haven't seen the past few pages yet, but I'd just like to state that opposing Nazis and the KKK and the like is the bare minimum of opposing racism. As in, if you didn't oppose those two, you'd be blatantly complicit with tolerating racism.

By the same token, opposing them isn't much of an achievement in and of itself. It doesn't mean that fighting racism is something you value, it just means that you don't want it to be out in the open. If you are all well and good with it existing in more insidious forms, then that refusal to do more than the minimum also tells us about what your values are.

Thank you, that's a much more helpful response than the less helpful vague mockery that serves as so-called discussion.

I don't particularly care for Boogie's "Francis" character as I find the 'joke' of that character rather strange and abrasive.
And the linked video in the OP in which he identifies Nazi scientists as a benefit of the Holocaust is a remarkably foolish thing to say.

I'll admit, this thread surprised me, so I'll try to keep an open mind on this as I watch future video's of Boogies and make up my mind up accordingly.

Thanks again for the helpful links.
or you could just read the thread and get a pretty clear idea of who he is. like, there are tons of examples here.

Lol i can picture him logging and seeing all those notifications, probably stoked that resetera is so hyped about his show, then the reality sets in and he starts getting all sweaty about being asked to state an opinion that could alienate anyone at all.

Probably working last minute to make another anti konami speech to rally everyone around him.
 
hey sofajockey, i used to hang out on the uBSN, so we've met. i'll assume you're posting in good faith:
*useful links*
Yes, I am posting in good faith and yes I'm starting to see where this is coming from. Always nice to bump into an ex- from BSN.
I wasn't aware of the items you mentioned before this evening except for what I would consider his painful fence-sitting on gamergate which I have no respect for. Ah well, live and learn...

Why is anyone surprised? Geoff isn't exactly subtle with how insecure he is about wider perceptions of the gaming industry, he'd probably invite anyone with enough followers that could potentially draw more eyes to the show.

Boogie is a fucking cretin, mind.

Boogie is probably seated at the game awards right now waiting for the show to start. I doubt Geoff is gonna make an official statement on him at this point, or get security to escort him out. That would probably cause a scene.

hey sofajockey, i used to hang out on the uBSN, so we've met. i'll assume you're posting in good faith:

boogie farmed out his sister's trauma for clicks, against her express wishes. he then proceeded to wish the man who abused her well. (there's evidence of this in the thread--i don't want to post it again, because it's potentially quite traumatising.)

boogie has expressed sympathies for white supremacists and claimed the holocaust had a silver lining

boogie supported gamergate

boogie laughed about his ex-girlfriend dying from lung cancer

there's a bunch more - just browse the thread - but i think this is probably enough to demonstrate why someone might take issue with boogie being invited to a major gaming event as a 'friend' of the organiser. it's not a matter of simply not liking him.
Add to the list:

When a Magic The Gathering personality got banned for leading a hellish harassment campaign against a woman, this was Boogie's response.



He blamed MtG for the harasser's actions for "forcing" a pro-diversity narrative on them and tried to personally intervene to get the harasser unbanned. He always, always goes to bat for the alt-right. The fence-sitting is just to massage his ego and provide plausible deniability.

Yeeeaahhh wow. Never was a big fan of this guy, I thought his old Francis videos were funny back in the day, but even then I always had an inkling that Francis wasn't much of a joke, but more of an uncensored version of himself. Stuff posted in this thread pretty much just confirms that theory of mine. It's like he lured people in by being a pathetic loser, and then reeled them in by being an asshole.

Maybe Keighley can see what a lot of people can't (or won't): Boogie2988 is not a monster. He is a person who has good points and bad points, just like everyone else. You may not agree with everything he says (and that would be normal) but painting him as some kind of irredeemable demon is pretty extreme. Not surprising, because the Internet, but discouraging nonetheless.

Same I've been here over a year I spend between 20 min to 2 hours a day on here depending if theirs some intresting news other than that mostly 30 min, I don't post much and I tend to stay away from hot takes and outrages thread doesn't mean my account is a troll account

As for this boogie guy tbh last time I heard of him was when he won some award on this show and when he was Unboxing his ps4 in like 2014. Idk why people waste their time or argue with him if his spilling a lot of bullshit just puting him in spot light and giving him more audience. Plus I don't follow any YouTube gamer personnel for some reason they all rob me the wrong way
