User Banned (Permanent): Doubling down on severe infractions.
What are "inflammatory" points of view is incredibly subjective, though. And what I was defending was the right of the medium as an art form to explore underage sexuality which is something countless books and films have done. Celebrated books and films, I might add. I was not defending the specific game that was being talked about in that thread (I haven't played it but I assume it was more pornographic in nature than anything else). I tried to explain that to your mods via email but never received a reply. (In fact, my ban was lengthened because I dared standing up for myself and questioning a mod's decision. In private. Via email.)As stated in the OP:
You were banned for defending games that sexualise minors and defending blackface costumes. The fact that your posts are politely worded does not change that. Politely worded bigotry or inflammatory points of view are still just that: bigotry and inflammatory points of view.
As for the blackface thing, I'd try to explain why I think that post was perfectly fine but knowing this place, even just the (perfectly harmless) explanation would land me a ban so I'll refrain from doing so.
Just because I don't like how this place is moderated doesn't mean I hate all of it. I like the community and, like I said, it's great as a news site.
