So, for backstory: Resetera is arguing about some anti-police art in Division 2. They agree with the sentiment, but hate that the badge number in the art is "FA6607". But soon they're just dumping on cops in general.
Not Latpri. He hates the "All Cops Are Bad" rhetoric and fires back:
I appreciate your gusto. On the ResetERA forums the moderators have a monopoly on force (as much force as can be applied to people on an internet forum, banning and temp banning). The same disparity of power exists between normal users and moderators as exists between normal citizen and the police. The stakes are much, much lower in ERAs case but they are proportional. Basically, I dont BELIEVE your ACAB posturing until I hear you call Slayven an asshole. Do it. I wanna see it. Then Ill believe you.
And what an apt response, too. How is it that Resetera members can despise a group of people designated to police them and enforce the norms of society, and who they believe are taking their constitutional rights away, yet they come home at the end of the day and log into Resetera where the mods are doing just that? Mods that treat you differently according to your race and have no accountability.
If anti-cop Resetera members had any balls, they'd be defying authority right now by calling Slayven an asshole, while the consequences are far smaller than a real cop altercation.
The fact that mods banned him is almost poetic.
