I'm not advocating for his point of view, but it does bear discussion that Ace was never really meant to be transphobic. It's more that the villain is crazy and depraved in her own right, and these things are Played for Laughs rather than being meant as an attack against the LGBT community. Also, Fair for Its Day.

This at least goes as far back as April 2016 on the GoT pages; a few examples from there:

"A beautiful and horrifying metaphor for what Dave & Dumb Dumb are doing to the source material, really."

"Goldmember jacks it to the Greyscale scene. Suck on that shmoke and a pancake for a while!"

"Dumb and Dumber: Dignity, always dignity"

"Granted, most Daenerys fans ARE morons, but still."

"Danny Stormborin' is walking, talking narm. Can't we just say all her scenes and call it a day?"

Then there's this from YMMV.Heavy Rain:

"Did David Cage himself contribute that to this page? It's still a clumsy, grammatical shambles but I can't be arsed to redo the entire thing."

And this little number from YMMV.Robin Hood:

"Hit the save button a bit early. And remember: life is brief, but when it's gone, furries die alone."

Interestingly none of the edits themselves seem to be all that charged, though to be fair I only skimmed them.

^^ The issue is their comments, not that they were defending the work itself (although the way they were rubbishing the comment in question doesn't help their case).

For the record, they also left a review on the original Life is Strange at the same time, but it doesn't seem to have anything suspect about it (aside from a rant on their own personal philosophies about the ending).

Has anyone sent him rudeness notifiers?

I can't say (I saw the review and looked into their edit history, then created this because they've been doing it for quite a while).

Given how inflammatory hes always been in review comments, Im surprised that his behaviour is only brought to light just now.

@Flashsteps: it may bear discussion, but this thread is about Bastard's bad editing, of which that rant is one example.

Seriously, though, this guy needs at least notifiers and quite like a tap on the shoulder.

The username Bastard 1 does not exactly inspire confidence in me, BTW.
