wtf makes u think i'm not free speech. i just don't think private companies choosing what to censor is actually anti-free speech. the way we're talkin shit about eachothers views IS free speech. we're doing it now. lol

You can't possibly be pro-free speech with a position like that, and I'll explain to you why.

Certain platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Youtube have become the stage for political debate. While before people would talk to each other in person, the main stage for political debate happens largely online on these platforms today. These companies themselves bill themselves as being only platforms for other people's content, but this is no longer true. They are creating new algorithms to shut out content they deem incorrect, and promote content they approve of. They routinely ban content creators whom they view as incorrect, even if none of their content violates their service policy. As well, they create new rules worded specifically to allow them to ban content they dislike. When appeals are attempted to be made for controversial decisions, no human staff are available for contact.

These companies are no longer "platforms" now but publishers masquerading as public forums. Currently these companies are being taken to court for this very reason, unions have formed, and even the President has considered legislation to regulate them to prevent this situation.

If you are for free speech then believing that it's okay for these private corporations to censor political ideas you dislike is an untenable position. If they want to be public platforms, they should not be allowed to act as publishers.

That's classical paradox of tolerance. It's ironic. Just like treating hyperactivity with Ritalin. Doesn't mean it's wrong.

It's also ironic that water temperature color codes conventionally use blue for cold and red for hot. In reality blue is warmer than red according to Wien's displacement law. Still no reason to get rid of those conventions.

You might think the notion of "using intolerance towards the intolerant to protect tolerance" is profound, but it's actually grossly oversimplified.

Firstly, a person attempting to debate ideas that are considered "intolerant" don't necessarily intend to use violence. Attacking or censoring people for their views alone, regardless of their intentions, and especially those asking for a reasoned debate rather than violence, creates more intolerance than anything they could be saying.

Secondly, if you censor and attack the non-violent, this will have the effect of pushing them into violence as they will believe they have been given no chance for peaceful recourse. It's a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Thirdly, people are not all guilty by association. The same people who think it's wise to "judge people by the content of their character" happen to be the same who'll judge an entire group for the actions of the worst in or adjacent to a group, collectively, throughout all of time.

Fourthly, and most important: since you've discovered that "intolerance" isn't inherently evil as it can be a tool to maintain tolerance, you should also consider those spreading "intolerant" ideas may be doing so themselves to create a more tolerant society, not because they want to create a society of intolerance.

imagine being so low IQ that instead of considering all those kinds of theories bad, you just think the ones that originate from an opposing political philosophy is bad

imagine being so stupid that you think it's impossible for a conspiracy to exist

They Would Catch A Lot Of Shit For It, Is The Thing. chick fil-a is still trying to apologize. lol

since you didn't get what I meant, imagine if anti-homosexuality were the prevailing view of major tech and media organizations, and sanctioned by the government, despite homosexuality being a popular position among regular people. I'm certain you'd be a free speech advocate then.

well considering that the "hostile thoughts" are the exact same conspiracies that meth heads get after smoking too much meth, i'm just anti-stupidity. if u believe it's your civil right to be a retard then that's ur prerogative, but it's also mine to call it out

yes, silly conspiracies like donald trump colluding with russia, who hacked the 2016 elections

privately owned companies can censor whatever they want (and they'll catch shit for it from censored groups regardless)

I'm sure you'd be perfectly content if being a homosexual alone were a bannable offense on social media websites, or if being exposed as gay would get you immediately fired from your job and cause you to be unemployable afterwards

When you give a monkey a gun and that monkey shoots someone, you shouldn't punish the monkey.

lol rick isn't a monkey and nobody gave him a gun. It's more like he was invited into his neighbors house, found a gun lying around easily accessible, and rather than inform the owners to lock up their weapons, took the gun and went on a shooting spree. He knew what he was doing.

Let me clarify.
You presented two examples of ini edits as if they are the only two ways you could possibly use ini/config edits for. Cheating or larping.

Not at all. You made the bold claim that:
"you have to ban ALL ini/config edits as the line between cheating/customization is really really murky."
I used frankensteins as an example of how .ini edits do have extremes and why it's necessary to judge them on a continuum, ranging from inconsequential to gamebreaking. I realize some things might be "really really murky" compared to each other, but not everything is.

You should perhaps look into how interpolation affects hitbox positioning in source games(all games tbh). In left4dead if you leave the values at their default setting the hitbox lags far behind the actual visible model of a hunter pouncing. By editing these ini files the hitbox would be more aligned with the actual ingame model and therefore someone who actually edited the interp values is at a significant advantage. However this setting has never actually been in the in-game menus of any source game, and there are quite a few times where I've been called a cheater because setting my interp value to a certain setting gave my tank longer arms in l4d.

Interpolation isn't only one thing you mentioned. There is a world of difference between turning off mouse smoothing or changing FOV to what Rick was doing. You shouldn't be silly and act like all these things are equally bad and that everyone deserves an equal punishment. It's as silly as saying "all criminals commit crime, so don't they deserve equal sentences?" As for interpolation, leave that question to those other games. I'm focusing on what's happened to this one.

As well, the developers have already banned him, so clearly what he did was in the realm of cheating in their minds. There's no more need to argue that.

None of them are a "cheatmode" switch but they are advantages clearly. Remember when people in Chiv cried about fov ini edits? Those ini edits in Chiv is why Trit capped fov in Mordhau.

Torn Banner never hardcoded the FOV to stop this when they easily could have, showing either apathy or tacit support. In fact, Triternion increased the maximum FOV in this game because they used those .ini edits in Chivalry themselves! Even now if someone broke the FOV cap in Mordhau, it wouldn't be remotely as harmful as what Rick had done with the bubble. The FOV is already capped fairly high in game, and few people would be able to take advantage of going much higher - and not to a significant degree either. It's clearly not as big of a problem.

TL;DR: .ini/config edits exist on a continuum where opposite extremes exist. Different edits fall on different degrees on the scale. Not everything is equally as bad, and so punishments should fit the crime.

You pointed out the two extremes while also denying that the middleground exists:

You just claimed that all .ini edits are murky, implying that no extremes exist.

A player ban isn't really justified, you have to ban ALL ini/config edits as the line between cheating/customization is really really murky.

You've just admitted to the existence of extremes which invalidates that previous argument.

editing interp values in csgo/tf2
changing your fov to values higher than offered in client.
editing ini to turn mouse smoothing off in unreal games because most devs don't put it in their options menu
setting oneframethreadlag=false to get a more responsive mouse input in unreal games at the cost of slightly less fps
turning off fog in ini to get more visibility
potato mode

None of those things are a "cheatmode on" switch. Turning off a key component of player collision like was done here isn't some supplemental boost - it's bypassing an intended layer of gameplay. It would be comparable to somehow slimming your character's hitbox or making another player's hitbox larger in a shooter game.

Frankensteining faces in mordhau involves simple .ini edits to change the face transformation values to be asymmetrical. It's funny to make monstrous characters.

Removing the bubble that prevents players from performing unblockable attacks is also a simple .ini edit. This isn't fun for anyone but the cheater - and a hollow enjoyment at that.

There's no "thin line" between these two. Nobody is frankensteining faces for some competitive gameplay advantage. They may be exploiting, but they're certainly not "cheating."

NO THEY ARE NOT IPAS ARE THE FUCKING WORST BEER AAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

You have just revealed that your taste buds are garbage and right now I can only assume that if you do ever drink beer, it's either tasteless commercial lager shit, or some palletable baby drink like a vanilla bean porter. No self-respecting craft beer drinker would commit a sin as great as saying that IPA are the "worst" style of ale, considering they are generally among the most complex and interesting of all beer styles, along with saisons and bretts. I am willing to bet that even despite your bold claim of IPA being the worst beer, you've yet to even try all of the different beer styles so you can make an informed decision: you just took one sip, and because the taste overwhelmed your childlike tastebuds you wrote off the style altogether. I'm not even going to give you the benefit of the doubt that you merely had a bad IPA, which do exist, because I know better. So listen up, until you go out and try at least a dozen different IPAs of varying styles (namely west coast, double/triple, imperial, black), you are officially dead to me. During this time, I will not vote for you to become a moderator, and you will be unable to commission porn from me. I'm giving you a chance to redeem yourself, so don't fuck this up.

I cannot believe this isn't a copypasta
