Everyone seems to be weighing in on this...

The anti-NPC offensive is strong with this one . . .


Also, check out the meme I made and give it a thumbs up

Since Twitter has been purging the NPC accounts, the trolls have had to get a bit more subtle...

This has to be the lowest Twitter has sunk yet with the bannination.

What a joke overreaction, you couldn't make it up. Like lemmings. What a bunch of commissars.

Well to be fair . . . I am GUESSING that a large fraction of those bannifications were brand new accounts created specifically to do nothing but troll about the NPC meme. So that would breach Twitter terms of service on at least one, if not two counts: (1) "Gag" accounts are (probably) forbidden; (2) Having an existing account, and creating a second one specifically for trolling is probably forbidden; (3) An account which exists solely for the purpose of trolling is probably forbidden (though admittedly as we progress through this list we shift away from "Perfectly reasonable administrative concerns toward, opinion-based bias). It may even be that, using a VPN to foil their IP tracker and create a second account at all is a bannable offense.

But the idea that the NPC meme is "dehumanizing" and that it needs to be "banned" on those grounds: to the extent that that is being invoked it is absolutely Orwellian and to the extent there are not other legit bases to ban such accounts it is even more authoritarian.

Certainly Twitter has not shown itself to be demonstrably NEUTRAL when it comes to such cultural struggles so I don't mean to "apologize" for their behavior. They have clearly engaged in a double-standard in applying rules many, MANY times before, and certainly a large fraction of the animus, if not the specific determinations, behind this "purge the NPC meme" reflect that same corrupt, closed-mindedness.

From what I have seen Twitter was banning the NPC accounts for displaying unusual behaviour.

That's a gag. You can't trust Mac on this kind of things. :lol:

If you gave that guy melatonin "shots" he would just get freckles.
