Giant Bomb Fan Club

I don't get why Jeff hasn't taken Ben aside and asked him not to interrupt so much, and given him some guidance as to how not to fucking annoy everyone. It's baffling. Maybe Jeff is just a shitty manager.

Making the news the focus at the start made it a decent listen as well. Jeff seemed to be trying to keep up the shitty try-hard attempts at humour in Ben’s absence though :seanr:
 

I reckon GB West will need to do something based on all the negative feedback I see here and on the thread on Neogaf though they are a bit nasty there.

Jeff likes the jabber, he hates dead air so Ben resolves that issue.

Somebody should explain to Jeff the difference between filling dead air with jabber and constantly interrupting everyone.

/looks at Neogaf GB thread

 

I thought we moaned about Ben being awful, but they take it to a whole new level.  And for the most part I agree. 

Yeah I've often wondered what a forum of white supremacists and misogynists think about the podcasts I listen to too.

Well, there is a generalisation of over 140k members.

I just had a look and as I scrolled through, thinking this is a poor imitation of 4chan, I actually came across someone greentexting on there. 
 

So yeah, it’s basically /v/ with usernames.

I'm going to assume you missed the big happenings from awhile back. Everyone left, and nazis and white supremacists took over NeoGAF. It's a mess.

Nah, I left then to join Resetera.  Until I got banned (see above).

You getting banned from a different forum, doesn't mean that a separate white supremacist forum isn't a white supremacist forum. I'm not saying anything about Resetera, I genuinely thought you missed the news on NeoGAF and tried to explain what had happened.

I got banned on resetera for having an alt account. Which I didn't and I'm on a VPN.

That'll be why. Someone else has probably used the same VPN so the same IP address.

Oh no, I know what happened over there with the whole evilore thingy - I was an active member of GAF since 2006.  Through the highs of the infamous Denis Dyack's metldown to the lows of the Evilore controversy.

 

Resetera is a bit of a mess atm too, part of the problem with it being so big.  I will no doubt rejoin it at some point mind you.

Probably, but you would think that would be taken that into consideration.  Especially with the growth of VPN popularity.

Yeah, it's pretty disgusting. I get if people don't like any members of crew, they are people after all and you wont like everyone, but the level of personal insults become ridiculous. It's how I ended up here, seems like it isn't such a heated, short fused place.

All the normal folk left to form resetera. 

 

I wouldn't go quite that far, resetera is in the middle of weird dance right now.
