Quote from BlueTronFTW »Hell, we aren't even allowed to voice certain viewpoints on this forum, because they have been deemed detrimental to the "community."
What sorts of viewpoints might those be?
Quote from TheOnlyOne652089 »[quote from="Teia Rabishu »" url="/forums/magic-fundamentals/magic-general/793278-mtg-the-worst-community?comment=69"]Everyone that brings in outside problems into the game, including politics, religion, sexuality, race/gender and what not will run against a flat WALL and earn disrespect and simply annoy people. That doesnt mean the community is bad, it simply means these people completely miss the point of what makes a game a game, people use the game to avoid real life crap topics that only fuel hate and ultimately violence.
The only feasible solution for the good of the game is to avoid these topics in your game , not push it harder to start a civil war in the community, as that is what will happen and there are no winners in such a conflict, only people that leave the game.
I play magic pretty much non-stop for 20+ years and universally all the people i met are pretty nice people and if someone wants to stick around a group you can talk in private if you want to solve specific issues, in a neutral adult way,
Pointing fingers and calling someone "the problem" are fundamentally wrong, deeply disrespectful and will only fuel hate and aggression. So if you can avoid it, dont ever do that.

Quote from Colt47 »I wouldn't over blow his followers. He had a lot of people backing him during the winter season due to the MTGO issues and the controversy over Sprankle. Right now it's mostly people getting misled.

Quote from IronPlush »I think arguably the largest problem is that not only do many players not see toxicity as a problem in the community, but refuse to acknowledge when it happens. Even going so far as to champion the worst offenders.
Quote from Lumovanis »(the Sprinkle incident is a good example, it's a shame she felt she had to remove herself from the community before it was handled though)
Quote from drmarkb »I do think there needs to be a formal watch list fir Legacy. The format is expensive, and being forewarned allows people to make informed choices.
Quote from crimhead »For the record, I am not asking for a DRS ban, but if the future looks too much like the top-16 from Birmingham, something needs to give.
