You’re right, In my original post I said the title and quote were misrepresented. That is not exactly what I mean to say — I intended to say the thread title is misrepresenting the quote, which is a totally accurate quote.Your original response which started this dialog stated that the quoted information in the OP and title were misrepresenting what he said. So to me, this means you simply took what was said in a different way from what myself and others took. I simply asked you to clarify if what he said was in fact true. It took you 3 responses to finally confirm this and it's because you don't feel it's accurate. I don't have a problem with that. But to say the actual quote is misrepresenting him, I don't agree with at all. It's like a 'well that's not what he meant' excuse and that doesn't jive with me.
If he said something to alter this response in a video or whatever, that's beyond the scope of what I asked about. The quote was correct, but you think it meant something else. That's it. The question from me wasn't flawed at all, I think you simply tried to avoid it because you were dead set on saying it wasn't what he meant.
This isn’t a case of reading things two different ways — he just simply doesn’t say the kid “shouldn’t have been banned”. In the quote, or in the video. He does explicitly say he thinks it should have been a less severe punishment, “I’m not saying he shouldn’t have been banned AT ALL”, just not permanently.
Yet the thread title, video title, and thumbnail all say that. Again, I would urge you to point me to where he says that in the quote or in the video. Now, again if we wanna have a discussion about him advocating for less harsh punishments only for streamers, let’s do it because that’s a horrible take. But that would require you to actually watch the video first
