That is not a direct quote from Yoshi at all. You might have summed up Yoshi's argument as that, but using the forum's quote feature to make it look like Yoshi said those exact words is pretty poor form.
I've seen it done on other forums. No, I wasn't trying to make up a quote. I was trying to say that his post was filled with fluff and the only things he actually said were pretty out-there.
Well when your only source of news is websites like buzzfeed or the washington post, then you eventually start typing like a manipulator. Hide the key messages in paragraphs of fluff instead of saying what you mean outright!

Jontron said that black people are intrincisally inferior and that ethnic diversity is a bad thing. Playtonic thinks all races are intrinsically equal and that ethnic diversity is a good thing. That's literally all their statement was meant to convey.
Did you actually watch the video of the debate or are you using twisted words from your favorite clickbait article? I love how you can easily just slander someone's character without a thought and not have actual evidence to back up your claims.

That's a great deflection on what I said, but sure. I mean you're even saying that it's not a big deal to remove him, but why was it a big deal in the first place? It's strange that you keep flip flopping between it's not a big deal to them having to "go out of their way" to have included him in the first place. Listen, all I'm saying is that condemning a person by releasing a statement against JT when the company could've remained apolitical is them making a statement on free speech. Whether you see it or not, them removing him from the project for speaking his mind is a statement on how they feel about free speech. Not only that, but they silence anybody on steam forums, this forum, etc. who are simply asking for a refund on the grounds they didn't agree with Playtonic as a company. Of course though, that doesn't matter because they got your money and you have to deal with it.
You'd think everyone would've learned after MN.9, but I guess shady devs are gonna keep pushing for kickstarter projects as a means of funding the game. All I can do is warn people about supporting them from now on.
