To clarify: I'm not purporting these "toxic" practices don't exist, but the argument always falls apart for me as a 'privileged' white man at the fact that I always have to mute everyone else whenever I play competitive online games...because otherwise people will threaten to rape me and sling various slurs at me. ******* trashtalkers don't give a damn what gender or race you are, everybody gets attacked.

Maybe if Polygon got a more diverse group of actual gamers to speak to the issue rather than career victims and scholers with a forgone conclusion to prove they could quit misinforming so heavy-handedly and actually produce some sound ideas for creating safer spaces for online gamers...perhaps a "There's a mute button, use it!" PSA campaign or something along those lines.

It's like buzzfeed. They hate men. I'd just ignore it. Lending an ear to hateful people will only harm you.
I only get my gaming news from randos on youtube.

@FleshToDust A matter of perspective. Drivel can be humorous and less harmful to the psyche if you treat it as comedy from the onset. I don't like to shut out things I disagree with, because then my own beliefs are never challenged. However, that doesn't mean I have to take an article that doesn't know the meaning of ad rem at all seriously. If it has a pertinent thought I'll sniff it out, if not, at least I tried.

Also tis just a random article that popped up on my newsfeed, not something I even sought out. Polygon does write some quality comedy though, you should check out their Kingdom Come and Farcry 5 reviews sometime. Never have I been more sold on a game by people trying to convince me it was a pile of ****. :D

So I'm practicing ITC with a spirit box, and decide to try to contact my deceased soulmate. It actually gave me multiple identifiers. Me, still a bit skeptical, asked aloud "Fine but does he still love me?" and the box spoke and printed the word "Forever" at the same time. Been a mess of tears since. :kaocry:
Been scratching away at my game and making progress, but just had a revelation. I'm working in full screen and adjusting all my pictures accordingly, but will they resize if someone's screen is smaller?? I hope this doesn't turn out to be a problem later.
Why is there so much month left at the end of money? D=
Hello humans! How goes your day in this journey of living? I hope it is good, for I am human like you, and I am feeling great! Worship the altar.
