Not really, because you are still saying that I've been strawmanning you, to a hilarious degree, without any support for that at all. If you're suggesting that it's strawmanning you by trying to…

Yes, let's attempt to divert from the point with new assertions, without the need for any backing. No, I really don't try to strawman people. If you felt I was, perhaps I was confused by your "my…

Nope, that is misrepresenting the form of the argument.

It’s obvious that the left conducts campaigns against certain games – I’m saying that it is obvious the right does ALSO. I’m not saying…

They're trying to tip me over the edge again. I've got to the point of invoking ISIS and NAMBLA is the same sentence. :p

forgottenlor

I don't personally think that Vavra has done anything bad enough to warrant censure, and I think that's one of many cases that are overblown. I only discussed him as someone on that…

This idea that all the political force with RL consequences comes from one side seem to me evidently untrue. As if the other side doesn't conduct hysterical online campaigns, review-bombings, burning…

Was that really what killed it, though? I think a lot of the reviews were genuinely about the very poor state of the game, rather than anxieties about the naughty songs. If it had actually been a…

Silver

Well, we seem to have got into rather unreadable fragmented text walls, so I’ll try to break out of that, and just restate my core points.

I think your idea that each of your posts are…

No, not looking for great theories or political essays – just a regular progression of conversation where both parties try to make some kind of point and justify it, by responding to each other over…

Yes, generally I take each statement in a conversation as being a “connected entity”, not a series of unrelated discrete comments. I think that’s what most people do when they have a conversation,…

Well, you can bang you head, but I think the problem is that you’ve lost track of your own argument. If you look at how that strand of the conversation went, you said:

Again, here, can’t you see how you’re making a huge presumption about your own position– that it represents “fairness”, and therefore 99% of people would agree with it? Don’t you think maybe rather…

I don't think it’s disingenuous at all. Your original statement was, “From the left side the most common mis-representation I see regarding politics in games is 'x game has this political theme so…

Well, you gave the main point of my argument the snarky *snip*, and seem to be addressing a different point entirely. I’ve not said anything about wanting censors, benevolent or otherwise, or judging…

The comparison with the film was just to serve the point that the definition of what is propaganda is very much down to point of view. The core of the point I’m trying to make is that I think it’s…

I don't need to read your mind. I say it's arbitrary because it must be - as it would be if I made a claim about a certain work being propaganda, rather than merely having political themes. If I…

Well, what I'm suggesting is that your distinction between "political themes" and "propaganda" is arbitrary, and is dictated by your political views.

BTW, could you list some of these RPGs that…

Yes, and I wonder if that statement would have triggered all this nonsense, if other scraps hadn't been misrepresented by people stimulating their SJW detectors.
