    how is this post "inflammatory"?

    Original Post:
    http://www.psu.com/forums/showthread.php?p=6342350
    The game looks fantastic, and the gun mechanics look responsive, also dat lightning gun, wow.

    I guarantee the microsoft astroturfers on across the internet are going to adjust their smear campaign by desperately comparing this to to the S.hite that is gears of war, because apparently gears of war is the only third person shooter ever made.

    I mean it's not like uncharted or TLOU exist, Ready at Dawn also describes themselves as naughty dogs little brother, A studio that they wish to emulate, And i have to say, well they are on their way. Fantastic sneak peak
    All the best,
    PSU Forums[/QUOTE]

    Can the mods explain, because it doesn't make sense why i would be reprimanded by "ps4freak" for this. If you go to neogaf or youtube comments or reddit or anywhere on the internet, This is exactly what the astroturfers are now doing. Why am i being punished for pointing this out? note i dont mention "microsoft fans" anywhere , i am talking about those paid to post negative stuff about playstation games. And this is not part of my imagination, Microsoft are known to pay for this type of viral marketing. If you delete this thread, it will confirm what has happened to this forum. money talks.
    Maths is biased! It keeps telling me the PS4 is 50% more powerful than XboxOne!
    Great song, should have more views :'(

    It's intentional off topic derailment which I told you in the pm which was announced we are cracking down on. In no way does MS "astroturfers" or gears have anything to do with The Order gameplay footage. This is just a line of multiple posts by yourself that reflect the posting habits that we announced in the state of discussions thread. Not to mention you intentionally bypassed the swear filter.

    but the infraction/whatever its called is for

    This is a notice of rules violation at PSU Forums.

    Rule: 1.2 Do not incite or work to cause disruption and drama. (No trolling)
    Not derailment

    So I still don't get it. was i "working to cause disruption and drama"? or just telling people to prepare for the **** storm approaching all over the internet? Note i said internet, not PSU. If you go to gaf you will see 70+ page thread of exactly what i said.

    My post was on topic. Even if it wasn't, where is the trolling?

    There moderation team seems to be very heavy handed towards ps guys but hands off on MS guys for the same behaviour. That's fine that's your prerogative.

    I'm not asking for equality because they are your special guests, and have been for almost a decade, but it is rather odd.

    I think it's due time to revise the rules - gives mods more authority like in this example.

    Wishlist: Jade Cocoon Reboot, Oni Reboot, the next JRPG, Wasteland 2 [coming soon!]
    SotC 2, Fallout 4, next Obsidian Fallout, Project Eternity, Uncharted 4, Divinity [NEW!]
    ...

    When the new site and forums are released we'll be fully revising everything from rules to plugins regulating the rules and many other things. While I think what you said is fine other mods don't so I guess until the new site please abide by the current rules in force.

    It was an off topic statement. Who really cares if astroturfers are working their kung-fu at GAF and Youtube anyway? It doesn't affect anything other than those who can't think for themselves and believe whatever is spoon fed to them web-wide.

    Unless these astroturfer's actions could possibly impact upon your gaming experience, or worse still...reduce the resolution of a PS4 game to 720-900P, I wouldn't worry about what they're up to. That will in turn lead to more focused and coherent discussion.

    Commenting on strategies MS may or may not be employing to sway PR in a thread on a PS4 exclusive in the PS4 section was rightly acted upon.

    Looking forward to the facelift, forum change and revision of PSU rules & polices. Good times ahead.

    We have a special subsection just for that kind of discussion...aka Gaming Comparisons. Going there and posting a thread with a well thought out argument is the best way to discuss that topic. Then people can discuss The Order in peace.

    As long as it's justified sure. I could say that Uncharted is a Tomb Raider rip-off but as long as I give an example then I don't see a problem with it. Just saying it sucks or a rip-off and saying no more though is asking for flaming. But I have to say Ghost, if it's keeping in topic then you shouldn't have to make another thread, it would then be duplicating discussions which makes zero sense.

    That paragraph specifically came off somewhat as being bait material, which was probably what caught PS4Freak's eye in the first place. That plus bypassing the swear filter and your post history is what culminated towards the infraction. Keep in mind we can only select one reason for an infraction even there are multiple reasons for it, so don't take it by its face value.

    No one wants you to leave. You bring a lot of news and discussion to the forums. But sometimes your posts come with a certain bite or jab, and that's something we're trying to crack down on right now.

    Assuming it's a genuine response? No, not at all.

    No, I personally wouldn't give an infraction for that. First I would kindly ask the author of the comment to do as I stated above and make a vs thread in the vs section. Such topics are fine when they are seperated so that they can remain focused instead of some people disccusing game A as others discuss how game A rips off game B.

    I once read that (and ive said this before) forums are like..or should be like digitial magazines and threads are the pages hosting something interesting to read...and discuss. What article starts on topic A and goes off on a tangent about topic B you know? Then people who want to discuss just game A can, and those who want to discuss A vs B can...and everyone wins.

    If the author chose to disregard that request though and I noticed a habit of offtopic discussions then yeah, I will give out infractions. The forums should be as orderly and clean as the front page will be.

    I will always give people fair warning and polite requests in order to steer their posting habits in line with what we're aiming for. I don't have an itchy trigger finger.

    Edit: of course...discussions will always sway off the line now and then which is natural, that's not what I'm talking about. Just in that specific example it goes against the idea of having topical subsections if those kind of discussions pop up anywhere. Anyway, just my €0.02.
