Limerick edit thread 2

Recommended Posts

 

I like the new poem as a backhand to offendatrons.

That said, the original submission should've stayed.

 

Oh it makes clearly fun of that person for sure. But this is not about this. It is about censorship and the principle why you as  artist should never give into these crazy people.

Well yeah. Much as I don't like a lot of Japanese games, their devs know how to handle this kind of stuff.

If they're gonna censor this joke, then why is this child abuse still a thing?

Obsidian is one of the few companies left still willing to make old school RPGs, both 'SJW' and anti-SJW sides are now detracting from this goal. I hope you all realize what you're doing. EA is probably laughing their asses off. Good job.

There is so many nasty non PC stuff in the game. Don't forget the rape, referring to women as 'fire whores', husband murder, etc., etc. TONS. But, this limerick cause them to cry. IT DOES NOT MAKE SENSE.

If Obsidian believed in old skool RPGs they wouldn't be  bowing to pressure to those who loathe old skool RPGs to change their game. RIGHT!?! That's what BIO does. Is Obsidian the NEW BIO? I think so.

Am I really the only one here who got the meaning of the new poem? People should have a second look at it:

 

34ec617d-ac19-4fb3-87c8-8a3eb58b1c40.jpg

 

It clearly states that the original poem was just a joke and shouldn't be taken seriously, and "They asked for blood" is refering to those who asked for its removal and it can't be taken as compliment (if I were "they" I wouldn't take it as one anyway).

 

So all in all it seems rather obvious to me that the new poem means: "your failure to understand an inconsequential joke resulted in stupid censorship, well done you hysterical crowd".

 

I think this is the best way the community should react. Joke about it, the whole ****storm about this doesn't deserve the attention it got.

Not sure I see the relevance of the EA comparison. It's not like EA/Bioware has tried to make a game in the genre since Origins, which was at best a spiritual hybrid between tactical 2D games and the more "modern" take on the genre.

 

Also - EA with their "We use bots to praise ourselves for supporting gay rights as a smokescreen" tactics probably don't think too much of anything.

Disappointing to say the least.  I hope the backer gets a refund.

 

I feel like a broken record at this point, but this feels like a giant double standard towards violence in the game.  I am not sure how jokes of this kind are unacceptable, but lynchings and depictions of torture based on ideology are given a pass.  If a joke needs to be censored for society's sake, why is violence different?

I think you should look up the definition of censorship.

 

You're either dishonest or ignorant.
http://i.word.com/idictionary/censorship

 

cen·sor·ship

\ˈsen(t)-sər-ˌship\

noun

: the system or practice of censoring books, movies, letters, etc.

Full Definition

1 a :the institution, system, or practice of censoring

b :the actions or practices of censors; especially :censorial control exercised repressively

2 :the office, power, or term of a Roman censor

 

This move certainly can be regarded as censorship.

 

https://www.aclu.org/free-speech/censorship

 

Feel free to contradict the ACLU, but I'm going to give a bit more credence than you.

Censorship is not only forced by law. As I said you are pretty naive if you believe that is the case. 

 

I don't believe I ever claimed that to be the case - I am pointing out that being told by a loud minority to change something is NOT censorship. The choice is still in their own hands. Of course you can debate the legitimacy of the concept of self-censorship, which is pretty much the core of the drama as far as most people seem to be concerned.

 

If Obsidian caves this easily to a small group of loudmouthed people (who arguably haven't even played the game for the most part judging by twitter responses), what will be next on the "I am a minority and feel offended by ___"? And how will this sort of behaviour affect the universe, story and future content that is still on the drawing board.

 

I do not care what it does or not does. And even if it was just some small stone which it basically is.  It is the principle of someone being offended by something most people do not even agree and then it get changed.  IT is ridiculous how worse this **** has gotten thanks to twitter and co. No one ever should carve in to nutjobs and Yes Obsidian did exactly that and while I am no expressing my anger. I will also never by a Product of Obsidian since I am totally against censorship in any form. 

 

I live in Germany and I have to go against a ton of censorship regarding violence or nazi symbols in video games.  It is just disgusting to me. Especially when there even was a mod to remove this messages. There was no need at all to remove this but now Obsdian has done it and now they have  to live with the consequences. And how big they are will we see with their next game. Which I will certainly not buy. And many other people here seem to be the same.

this needs to continue as it was an important discussion on the merits of censorship

No. It's a bunch of anti-SJ idiots throwing a fit, as usual. Anyone who thinks this has anything to do with censorship is an ignorant tool.

Obs did the right thing.

*Gets the popcorn*

 

I don't know if Obsidian did the, "right" thing, but they certainly did nothing wrong. The backer's content was changed with the backer's consent after all.

So all we need is for someone to actually prove that Obsidian caved and made a decision against its will, with some kind of actual evidence, and we can all go home.

No. This would be a complete non-issue if the bigots hadn't thrown a fit.

Go read the replies to the other thread. Someone actually vowed to undermine everything Obsidian ever does. The reaction is completely, hilariously, out of proportion.

No. He had no choice. What do you think Obsidian does if he tells them no? Come on, tell me. :)

It is a good testament to the sillyness and apparently they [Those that complained] are now rather upset about the rewritten joke. Have to wait and see if they try to have it removed as well.
