So , when Mike Tyson called someone a "white sissy" , he should have been banned from boxing.
Oh wait.
The guy was a white heterosexual - hate speech is allowed toward them.
Right liberals?

You do realize that was a different time right?

And for the record, not all liberals subscribe to groupthink. That's idiotic.

It is reasonable because he directed the insult at another pro. If he was just streaming and said that to a random player and blizzard still felt like policing his stream, that would just be the regular nu-blizzard idiocy that made me move away from all their games.

Valve does not police anyone's stream and the pro scene has absolutely zero toxicity.


You know what happens if you're caught insulting another pro in real sports? Unsportsmanlike conduct penalty and possible ejection. There's no excuse for that s*** at a pro level and if games want to be taken seriously as such it needs to be dealt with harshly. Oh and f*** Valve and their half assing like... literally everything.
OK so your saying it tried to use a blocked port, got blocked, and switched to an unblocked port while waiting for the user to respond? - Why I love Gfaqs.

I praise Valve for not policing private streams

Actually nobody polices anyone in Dota and there are no pros telling each other suck dicks or making bigoted comments.

I suppose since overwatch is much easier, a lot more people break into the pro scene and then you see these characters such as this QWC or whatever his handle is.

It's primarily the FPS community s*** like this happens in. You'll occasionally see drama in the Fighter scene too, but that often is personal s*** between two people.

Well, LoL too but I mean... It's League of Legends, it's a festering cesspool of toxicity.

Are you saying athletes don't talk trash? Guess he shouldve said his bf thought he tasted like honey nut cheerios. The only time nfl/nba players get penalized for speech is out of game in press conferences or on twitter.

You're mistaken there. They get caught throwing out homophobic or racist slurs in game and they will get punished for it.
Even I'm not crazy enough to believe that distortion of reality

This. The NFL/NBA and the player would be in a PR s***storm if someone got caught throwing out a racial or homophobic slur during a game.

Characterizing something as "homophobic" is purely rhetorical and totally meaningless from a dialectical perspective. It's nonsensical for this guy to be fined for this. Blizzard has been severely converged by social justice and political correctness to the point of no return, it seems.
