A day may come when the courage of offtopic fails, when we forsake our friends and move to separate discords. But this is not that day. An hour of ninjas and locked post when the age of offtopic comes crashing down! But it is not this day! This day we fight! By all that you hold dear on this good forum, I bid you stand! People of offtopic! [url=https://media0.giphy.com/media/TTR4WiXxiNfiM/source.gif]For Eccho![/url] [spoiler]Now while i don’t actually believe we should stand and fight completely I do so belobe that we should adapt for the glory of offtopic. We should work out our issues of these forums and together we shall triumph! These forums have stood together for so long and have endured many changes. If we work together we shall not fall![/spoiler]
As ridiculous of a degree that Bungie seems to have overreacted, one reason might be that, considering that their mods are entirely volunteer (as I understand it, “Ninjas” are all volunteer, and none are paid employees), they have no consistent method or system of policing the forums. I read from a user recently that they (the user) received death threats. With religion and politics being the most heated of topics, heated because many within today’s first world society, like I said before, has the tendency to lack the resolve to handle opposing ideas, let alone being wrong, in a civil way. Perhaps Bungie is simply doing away with said topics altogether to avoid liability. The easy method, though obviously not the best one, is to just do away with the freedom altogether. But then again, Bungie’s modus operandi, as demonstrated by the way they manage their current game, is mediocrity of effort.
