To you. Others disagree. Some people feel like they should be free to disagree; others want to curtail their ability to have a response.

You are free to disagree and voice that disagreement.
Abusing youtube's copyright system, however, is not appropriate.

Sounds like you want to censor their response. Are companies not allowed to take legal actions they deem fit and then let the legal aspect take charge? I expect they'll lose in court, but they took actions which they felt were right, and which you don't get to dictate.

They abused a system in place to prevent copyright infringement to silence individuals who said things they disagree with.
The community responded appropriately to that kind of garbage, and now the person is hypocritically whining about it. That's all.

'm glad we're down 1 less SJW.. SJWs are toxic. PDP did nothing wrong and Valve should not censor Steam for racism. Hell, I want people to be racist as they're defending the first amendment.

Right. And people abused a system of rating a game for their own ends; to silence those they disagreed with. So it goes. Either you're ok with both sides taking actions they feel are correct for the situation, or you're ok with neither of them.

Using a system the way it's designed to be used in response to exploiting a system to silence someone.
Community reviews are there for the community to b**** about things. Copyright strikes are not there for censorship.

Just like the courts were designed. These are available actions to be taken, and it doesn't fall to you to deem one side appropriate for utilizing the tools at their disposal and another not.

This will go on forever, btw. Like I said, either you're ok with both sides taking action, or you're ok with neither side taking action. That's just how it works. You'll say "it's not meant to be used that way!", and then ignore that the same could be said for the other side, and repeat to infinity. And I don't even think CS was in the right, legally speaking. But it's an action they are allowed to take.

Or you could get some sense and see the difference between an action and a reaction, and the censorship of an individual through abuse vs the appropriate consumer response.

I mean, I get that you're just trolling. Nobody is that dumb. But, I'll keep saying it.

I can see that both what CS did and the review bombs were reactions - just like I can recognize obvious, obvious hypocrisy when I see it.
I'll just keep quoting this, since you don't seem to understand it:

>Ostensibly fights against censorship
>Only wants the side which represents his own political interests to be able to have an "appropriate response"; anything else is "forcing a viewpoint" or "abusing the system" and should not be voiced
