Comments are gold

I love the comments that all y'all leave here, which are typically packed full o' smart.  But the comments to the new Battlefield V trailer are maybe the funniest I've seen in ages.  The users seem to be in full revolt against runaway political correctness.  Here's an example, remarking on EA's decision to make a woman the lead character in a World War II sim:
Just Imagine being squad leader giving orders to a Woman Solider on the deadly frontlines of WWII and she hits you back with the “StOp MaNsPlAiNinG”
Not even a little bit respectful, right there, but funny as hell.  Maybe the kids are all right after all.  Man, if the comments are any indication, Electronic Arts has some very poor sales ahead of itself here.

Hat tip to Cappy, who comments:
Are you going to become ideologues or SJW's, forcing your politics into everybody's fun? And if you choose the later then realize that not only are you tyrants, but you're also dicks because there's no more of a dick move than ruining other people's fun.

EA cleaned house of their stable of game designers, leaving just some SJW's to accomplish anything. Even their center-left personnel got heaved, such as my B-i-L, who worked there as a designer since the early 90's. There was a management change about 10 years ago, IIRC, and that seems about when I saw things change for the worse. EA started to make it difficult for designers to work from home, and it just went downhill from there. They moved closer to the company, but that wasn't good enough. There was a purge a few years ago, and they got tossed. I haven't seen any good news from EA since then.
