We removed the gross stuff from it and political posts aren’t welcome on the forums. But by all means a thread on the matter of tencent as an investor in games is welcome. Just political discourse and sinophobia wont fly.
Looking back, I think it was added in Jun 5, '18.
It’s a tricky line to define honestly, and why we will typically lean on the side of caution in shutting down discussion that involved politics.
Politics has grown increasingly a divisive topic as social media has grown in prevelance and dying media agendas push to divide people further to bolster their incomes.
What would be totally fine is to discuss Tencent as an investor in games/studios, and this can be done without talking about Tencent’s involvement in the political sphere. It really can, but it rarely could be executed in a way that meets with the forum guidelines because it’s just not how public discourse generally works outside of a very controlled environment with very select participants.
And you’re welcome to unpack this on the forums, it’s not a discussion that would be shut down as it’s not political.
This is pretty reaching comparison and I’d ask you to avoid a comparison that disrespects the trauma that was WW2 for those who suffered and continue to.
