Message from John Petersen in Turtle Hermit School #gaming


It's precisely my point that gamer outrage is stoked by manipulators all to the good of Steam. Completely innocent I'm sure

Not a single undue idea. Any bumbling is entirely gamertag's name's fault

Don't let me get in the way though, it's good fun to let it rage. I much prefer master A to master B, I'm a good gamer 😉

it's simply isn't the same as the console war. Epic and Steam can be downloaded for free

```I mean sure it's wrong but that kind of thing happens all the time more or less.```
That "Steam file" had user data on that. Not even Steam's API touches that file. Why did Epic need access to that if it's not required? This whole "It happens all the time so don't worry about it" shit can be applied to everything. "People bribe their way into colleges all the time so why is it a problem?" "Yeah, governments are corrupt and politicians do dirty things all the time, so why bother cleaning it up?" It's an appeal that holds no water, especially considering the main purpose of this discord server.

```. If you'd like to work on a launchpad that emulates epic/steam/etc well enough to remove yokes, that'd be good.```
>If you don't like it, make your own goy
The problem isn't the fact that Epic and Steam are different launchers. The problem is that Epic is trying to access data it has no right accessing. They're doing anti-consumer practices by literally buying out competition and screwing over pre-order and kickstarter backers who ended up getting a different product than what was promised.

That entire spiel was a strawman. You excused the potentially illegal accessing of private user data by dismissing it as common practice (spoiler: it isn't).

2019-04-11 23:20:13 UTC  

You didn't address the data breaches, all you did was snidely act like a stereotypical centrist on this issue while claiming you're not an Epic shill.

2019-04-11 23:20:27 UTC  

It's one thing not to care, it's another thing entirely to completely misrepresent

2019-04-11 23:20:58 UTC  

And frankly, that's some damned shilling behavior if i've ever seen it.

I explained my reasoning for my lack of caring. As I've stated several times I'm more than happy to not change anyone's opinion on the issue, which is why I'm talking about it here where we have more to deal with

You can believe different than me. I may make fun but I won't say it's wrong or anything.

Data breaches I haven't looked at yet so I could not begin to have an opinion on. When data breaches happen so often real and fake as an excuse to release data / cover up an operation, one begins to get tired of it.

You may be right in summation of my apathy towards it being some level of apathy. That doesn't detract from the point however, which was that all of it while existing, the blind spot is there and what I pointed out

Assume I edited it to not sound stupid or something 😉

The entire remark wasn't to excuse any bad behavior, it was to set aside for the sake of making an aside point. Wrong is wrong, and justice is blind.

MK11 drops in 2 days

2019-04-22 01:32:39 UTC  

And i'm throwing a launch party to celebrate, if you can make it, DM me, if not, ah well.

2019-04-23 21:23:07 UTC  

Oh my

2019-04-23 21:23:19 UTC  

That was probably a celebration that was a little unwarranted
