It's not that particular thread that has lead to "a continuous bashing of him", it is a result of him presenting opinions as facts constantly (when he actually presents "facts" they are usually false), blatantly refusing to even consider any viewpoint other than his own, an extreme case of fanboyism (anyone criticizing anything FG has ever done will get the SMACKDOWN), using the "you are all trolls" copout often, insulting people whose opinions differ from his and just being ignorant and narrowminded in general.
*reads.* Oh... Now I understand what you're upset about. And I thought *I* was bigotted.
Here, some of the lovely discussions I've been involved in, I'm sure if you bother looking you can find other discussions proving my point too:
Still, even if he has weird opinions, he's having them in a completely different city. Just skip to the next post if you don't want to hear it.

While I now understand what you're upset about, when the replies goes from "You are wrong." to basically "Shut up! Nobody cares what you think!" then it's just mean. Even people who are wrong, and even crazy people, have feelings and rights. If somebody "knows for a fact" that we live on Mars, and you know that there's no point reasoning with him, then the best thing to do is just to sigh and go "Well, good for you.", and move on.
He says money can't be made from youtube vids containing video games; And if we do make money, we are all a bunch of illegal scumbags. Feels great, huh?
Then I (we) politely explains why we are allowed to make money and how. He refuses to accept the idea that he might be wrong and proceeds by calling me and the others trolls. Great guy, huh?
I personally do make money with my youtube videos. So seeing him constantly bashing this concept without even knowing what the hell he's talking about, is really starting to piss me off.
I don't care if you see it as bullying. If you act like a total douche who has no idea what hes talking about. You will be treated like one.
I am pretty new to this forum, but from the posts I have seen from this guy; I can easily say that I find him to be a stupid, ignorant, stubborn, immature fucking douche bag with a lack of respect.
I'm yet to see where the game developers states that they think we are stealing their content. Most game developers (especially indie game producers) encourages online media of their products. It was youtube that got Amnesia and Frictional Games famous in the first place.
And saying that you can't make money with youtube videos is not an opinion, it's just false facts.
If you think it's bullying to tell someone that they are wrong, when they clearly have no idea what they are talking about. Then i don't think a forum is anything for you.
Have a nice day.
Maybe not an excuse, but he was actually first with posting mean comments. If you can't take a hit, don't go into the boxing rink.
I do agree that he's kinda nuts and that we should move on, no point in arguing with a brick wall.
I really wish he would stop throwing insults around him as soon as he loses an argument tough...
