Finally watched the video instead of skimming over responses.
The toxicity is true of ANY community. I came from the MLP community and just recently left it because the toxicity was getting to a point where nobody wanted to help each other and just start poking fun at one another using pretty insensitive memes. “The Pyongyang game,” for example, where you get randomly banned for no reason, and then unbanned 30 seconds later just for fun…
Twitch streamers? Same thing, they warn people to act their way or the highway while in their chats, and you get a mob of people that “support” the streamer trying to trample new people or generate rumors for no reason.
Furry is pretty much the most mature out of all of them. It’s seen it all, from a bad press story, the CSI incident, and more. It knows how to keep itself together and has no one leader. But the people that do believe in a “singular leadership spokesperson” for furries is who you want to avoid. *coughUncleKagecough*
But getting to the whole “Why support developers that won’t do anything for Linux?” thing, this is where Valve truly is the spearheader in trying to make them in the very least understand there’s a slight audience that are willing to go through some hoops to get GOOD games working on Linux. Proton and DXVK are very welcome and once DXVK hits 1.0 and esync gets mainlined, that opens up a lot of new possibilities.
Thank you @Wendell, for telling others that the outspoken/toxic (Rick) don’t define the whole community. This is seriously what is actually needed of all communities to be frank.
