Go back and read what Saturdiva actually wrote. Do you really have no sympathy for her, or the other people in her shoes?

This isn't about "outrage", "cancel culture", "being woke", "politics", or anything like that. OTHER people make it about those things. This is a plea on behalf of a real group of people (represented by Saturdiva) to have their personal feelings and desires recognized. And you all just want to attack it, thoughtlessly. You just don't get it, or you don't WANT to get it, and it makes me sad.

And I think it's likely that there's more going on in your subconscious motives for doing so than just pure concern for the inviolability of The Lore™.

I don't understand why around here people being straight and/or crass gets mods all involved, but passive aggressiveness is seen as fine. Can't think of one post of yours where you don't allude to people being either bigots, stupid, intellectually dishonest or just plain horrible because they don't share your views. Maybe the ones where you don't contribute to anything and just come in to mock the OP with a one-liner, like that other poster does.

This is being straight, by the way, so i know what to expect.

I'm not saying I'm never passive aggressive, but I'm not sure how I am in that post you quoted. It seems pretty straightforward to me. And the mods get on me plenty. I've had Sadurian call me out multiple times, both in thread and in PMs. I will probably get punished at some point, because sometimes I do ride the line. Mostly because I'm not sure where the line is, sometimes. And because I see the opposite of what you see, which is people occasionally posting things which are practically tantamount to hate speech (in my opinion) and the mods do nothing about it, so I get a bit pointed with my remarks because I think that someone else has crossed the line. I'm trying to keep it within the bounds of civility, though.

I guess you're not reading a lot of my posts, then. Just looking at my last 10 posts, let's see what we've got:

https://forums.larian.com/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=742568#Post742568 - okay, maybe a little bit like you described (I mean, there is sarcasm at least)

https://forums.larian.com/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=742559#Post742559 - not like you described (I am being sincere in everything there, not sarcastic)

https://forums.larian.com/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=742502#Post742502 - not like you described

So, I'd say 0.5 out of the last 10 posts are as you described. I think that's pretty decent.

There's nothing wrong with speaking plainly and stating your opinion straight. But sometimes people aren't just doing that, they're being combative, hostile, or otherwise actively unpleasant. And that's what the mods don't like. Especially personal attacks, they really dislike those. I think your post is fine, and you don't need to expect any reprisals for it.
