bit OT but I´m banned from Bioforum!

So i cant help anyone any longer with advices etc. on the bio boards. A biomod banned me because of this post in the OT section because "i was spamming and used lewd sexual themes"...

 

I quote myself: Topic was "Shizlmurk and the gayhounds of Doom"

 

Hello and thanks for your interest! Here´s a little tale i dreamed about!

 
First, who or what is "Shizlmurk". Well, Shizlmurk was a tiny evil gnome who had a even smaller "thing" in his pants. Whenever
he saw a woman it shrunk into nothingness. He really was angry he hated every woman on planet illusion!

And so he decided to take away all the pride the female goddess had for thousands of years and the once peacefull civilisation had to pay a high prize because of his impotency. So he founded his own club of religion. Known as the gayhounds of doom who likes to crossdress.

This religion become so powerfull because Shizlmurk was not only impotent but also of his inability to feel any empathy with his surroundings. He even sold his mother to the first bet!

This tale goes much further and if you want to know the full story of Shizlmurk and his dominions of gayhounds educate yourself with knowledge rather than fastfood text.

Thanks and sleep well!


Thats it.

 

I must say i´m proud to be banned because now i know what bioware really is and i have no regreats of this post at all!

I'd be glad to post your NWN news there, if that would help. 

I feel shabby using their site, as Bioware is certainly no friend to free speech or modding these days, but as long as NWN folk hang out there...

It´s only buggers me that i can no longer be of any help to others for a quick answer or technical advise. I was in writing back to someone with a suggestions and bam... banned!

 

Content wise this site here is the place i´ll use anyway.

 

Free speech... yes... free to say in the boundaries of their policy. Hehe, that was such a good comparison with some humour, nothing else;)

If that is what's considered "lewd sexual content" these days.... heh, I'm tempted to post a thread about that old classic module "Sex and the Single Adventuress"....

The new rules suck in so many ways.

Bioware used to allow the posting of sexually explicit projects on BSN, such as Natural Bodies and Crown of Creation. I discussed this face-to-face with some of the Bioware team back in 2009. So, I doubt whether there would have been a problem if anyone had cross-posted SSA or ADWR.

Now, the rules prohibit "Sexually explicit content".

Even more serious in my opinion is "Do not ... criticize any person or group of people", especially given the prohibition on "using the report tool to draw attention to a specific ... individual".

In practice, what this seems to mean is "don't criticise Bioware or their cronies; if you have a problem, don't even think of using the reporting tool". They've been behaving like this behind the scenes for a long time, now it's out in the open.

Obviously, this sort of Disneyland "be nice or else" culture is not confined to Bioware, but in my opinion the only way we can defend the tradition of liberty on the internet is to fund our own sites.

I even said "thing" in his pants.

 

But i also think there is a rise in a hidden tyranny of "tolerance" which is no better than any other tyranny. They are all against free speech but consider themself "better" because they pretend to defend minoritys... I really wonder if these people know that they are not friends of freedom at all. IT shows that the indoctrination works the western people had to go trough with things like "patriot act" "freedom" and "democracy" and other related brainwashing that is in reality only a dim light in front of a shadow.

I´m a western guy myself but i dont like what is done to our all heritage of free societys (USA and Europe) i mean. The more i grow older the more i see things very different and the more barriers are forced upon us to just swim with the mass.

 

I´m sure that one day almost everything you say "against" an established opinion is considered a hatecrime or they present you in a very evil way just to silence critical thinking people in advance and the internet shows this trend pretty good. Be nice, always smile and just do as we want otherwise we ban you! Black or white, with or against us!

 

When you go to youtube and view the comment section I would agree that most internet people are just a bunch of senseless brainiacs using insults instead of just "talking normal" but it´s better to just ignore that BS as to delete everything and force everyone to use only "one specific way of behaviour"...

 

@Werelynx

thanks for the offer. I´m sure there will be a few things i would like to help other with:)

You need to remember that Bioware has been for the longest time under the influence of Electronic Arts. And this particular publisher (and many other triple-AAA ones) really like to cater to as much of a broad audience as possible. Sure, without EA's massive financial support Bioware wouldn't be able to deliver games like Mass Effect or Dragon Age, or at least not on such a level of production value. But then again, EA is most of all concerned about profits and massive attention of their titles - hence why you had, for instance, the ability of homosexual relationships promoted in recent Bioware titles on such a huge volume. To show that EA is understanding and wants to cater to that type of players - which for them is really only another profit-generating demographic.

Sexually explicit content is being monetised to no extent, especially in the markets of Asian MMOs. But in many cases, it is regarded as unacceptable and in the eyes of majority of videogame marketing, too prone to create controversies and negative press/audience response. I feel CD Projekt Red and the Witcher series approached the subject quite well. It felt like a part of the setting and created a rather nice flavour to the games.

Now, I'm not saying that Bioware should completely allow all sorts of deviation among their fans but by simple greed of trying to sell as much as possible, I'm afraid it also hurts (to a small degree) them as a company. Sometimes, however, you just need a little ambience to give the feeling of the scene and I feel this is where Bioware does it well. But when they refuse completely to showcase this kind of stuff and even restrict the community in participating in sharing such content, then something is simply not right. This is a result of casualising franchises and company policies - something that a huge amount of developers and publishers do these days in order to generate as much revenue as possible. And it is why Mass Effect as a trilogy progressed to contain more FPS elements, rather than RPG mechanics. 'We want the Call of Duty audience.'

A little bit of 'kinkyness' is completely fine. It adds another layer of fun and creativity that is and should be understood only by a grown audience. And it does not always mean it makes the majority of the Bioware fanbase. Something doesn't need to feed on or promote sexualisation to be considered a compelling and thrilling piece of content or story.

 

The whole 'gay Shepard' thing is just a marketing tool. If Bioware wanted for this to be the theme, then they would make Shepard prefering space dudes.

I absolutely get where you're coming from and the biased coverage in western media about the whole Ukrainian situation and the treatment of people with opinions not in line with the officially sanctioned narration is just one example to show that this a problem on a much larger scale in our society. People who drink the government kool-aid are called well-educated and intelligent, people who question the mainstream media and government lies are stupid conspiracy nuts. Up is down, war is peace, black is white. But I'm going way too OT here...

You are so right with what you said about the biased coverage of political events or whatever event is mentioned by the media. Even it is OT it´s better to talk about it somewhere as to just move on and suck it until our own "freedom" is so limited and we think back, damn it... i should have expressed my concern at least and see if others see the signs too.

 

I´m involved in the modscene since 98 and it has changed a lot. The policys or rules are ridiculously limited and "community managers" or "moderators" are like high priests of a small inquisition. I think they suck so much it hurts!

 

I wouldnt have mentioned my ban in the first place if it would have been a ban because of a hardcore like insult or really use of sexual language--- which is totally nuts. I went mad and whatnot in my past and was even banned from the nwvault... but i never talked about pussys :D so that thing from bioware surprised me. I can read my own post as often i want and the only thing i really attacked was "religion" as a whole in a humorous way which isnt that off to start with. Who knows if the inventor doesnt had a problem with woman, he must had thats sure. Why else is eve the fucked up prositute, hardly expressed... because thats exactly what many man made out her... but they are to coward to say it.

 

And what i did by the whole post is to defend woman from religious BS. Because they suffer since the invention of that mumbo yumbo the most and still do today... but that was to deep for the asshole!

In regards to the political things happening worldwide i´m bored to death by the nonsense all the puppets around the globe are talking about, pointing fingers at a single entity but never mentioning the real issue behind it. The term conspiracy theorist should be changed by us into "reality seekers" thats all. Because thats it. Every police man, every agent, even every writer is a conspiracy theorist in theory so I´m sure it´s like with many other words.... they are changed into terms to make people look silly. But i swear that whenever someone is labeled a conspiracy theorist or traitor you can be sure he´s onto something. In every story there is some truth!

 

But ok now, lets get back to how shitty EAware has become :D
