You sum up everything I now hate about this place perfectly.
When I go to the chat, I feel as if conversations are more forced, more robotic. Often times the chat will be reset as a warning to "talk about something else". It's fucking garbage, it's not how a chat about free rampant discussion should work. People for saying "offensive words", people just, generally not knowing what the fuck a block button is. I see where this place is going, it's a place for "everyone" and forces "everyone" to be accepted and by one another. It results in deeper grievances with everyone because they can't duke it out with their words like human beings do.
When I signed up here, "everyone" included assholes. I would choose to have it no other way. But now we're appealing to a newer generation, a more sensitive one, I guess. Of course, they're damn near the only ones who combat people who say what they want. I've noticed the longtime regulars all think about the same way we all reviewing this do (with very few exceptions).
Thanks for this.
