A lot of people confuse post cyberpunk and trans-humanism with cyberpunk. Ironically one of the sites modes used to get it.

"Transhumanism is about how technology will eventually help us overcome the problems that have, up until now, been endemic to human nature. Cyberpunk is about how technology won't."
Stephen Lea Sheppard of RPG.Net,

Naturally being a total faggot Stephen took it back

Largely because these clowns don't get it because they mistake the aethestic trappings of the settings with the setting itself, when combined with their desperate desire to escape this world and themselves via transhumanism means they rationalize cyberpunk as a non-dystopian setting. Because they think the cybertits will take away the sad, never considering that casting aside your flesh might be the worst mistake of your life as you strip your own humanity away.
The amusing part is most cyberpunk is quite sympathetic to a lot of their world views being relentlessly critical of capitalism and the hyper consumerism it's produced, but because they're so chronically shallow they never consider that the cyberpunk setting is a continuation of current economic and social trends. But then again they're the sort of people to charge $30 for a non-essential pdf file, so maybe they're more locked into the cyberpunk system than they'd be comfortable with admitting.

Call me a luddite if you like but I think the Shire is more aspirational as a socialist than some shithole where everyone has half their flesh stripped from their body will ever be, I don't care how fuckable the robot is.

All this anti-capitalism can be yours for more than half a days wages at minimum wage! And you still need to print out your own copy because providing an actual product eats into our 100% profit margin.

Ask us how you can pay us to tell you how to print your own Che t-shirts!

Have you ever been so woke that you silenced a POC because they were silencing POCs?

Once upon a time when people asked to be perma’d, the mods would refuse because it just gave them what they want. Now not only do they perma, they write a 3 paragraph essay that the person will never even see.

it’s like someone dumping you and then writing a diary entry about how you didn’t like them anyway.

Small correction: bans do not prevent you from accessing Infractions.

For a brief time after the forum upgrade it was set up so you couldn't view Infractions without being logged in, but they evidently changed that when someone pointed out 'You know, people can't even tell why they're being banned.'

That being said, I can't tell what annoys me more. The three paragraph babble, or the snarky Saitama 'OK' that Tanka the faggot likes to toss out.

They have turned into TvTropes. They have so much ‘insider lingo’ and ‘special terms‘ to describe things- because they can’t just come out and say what they actually want to say - that the guy they banned seems pretty justified for not having a clue wtf they’re talking about and what he actually did that they disliked.

at least TVtropes, if you can sift through the mountain of shit, can occasionally be helpful.
