This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Just do your Thunderdome thread, IL each other and be done with it.  I don't see this vendetta as much of an issue, myself.

Quote from: James McMurray
To be fair, I said a lot of things that got under Pundit's skin. We had a blowout, declared a truce, and then I learned that I was again saying a lot of things that got under Pundit's skin, although only one was intentional. I'm still hoping I'll get an explanation about what the others actually were, since only two things I've said have been pointed to.

Well, I guess the point I was trying to make was that this site has always been pushed as a no moderator/defend yourself kind of place. It strikes me as hypocritical that someone would be officially censured for personal attacks.

Again, I am not your chronicler. You may be utterly unreasonable with pundit. Have you gone into stalker mode? The threads I have seen don't seem to indicate it. I just skim over that kind of stuff and get to the meat of a thread I am interested in.

And in the end, it takes two to tango. The whole competition thread has a lot of noise in it but was an interesting thread anyway. I have a personal interest since I have written some competition games with the hope of pulling in board gamers. Still, it just struck me as two posters on a side topic. Meh.

HinterWelt: I don't think I've ever stalked him. He thought I was for a while. Then we called a truce, and what you've seen in the competition and Hackmaster thread is pretty much it as far as conflict between us. I've even agreed with some stuff he's had to say in other threads, and tried to help him pick a game to play after his Shriner meetings are done. (They may not be Shriners, but are Masons of some sort).

Fonkaygarry: Ah. Pundit has said he won't put me on his ignore list. He's also said that I'm intentionally trying to destabilize his website and that's why he can't just ignore me.

I haven't put him on my ignore list because as I said, I've agreed with him at times. That and he's been a very helpful resource for my current Amber inquisitiveness.

Great, now I have a mental image of Pundit and JMM rubbing each other down with baby oil as "Push it to the Limit" plays in the background.

WELCOME!  TO THE LIMIT!

LIMIT!

BTW: If this goes to banning, it'll be a fucking mess.

I don't know if it'll go to banning or not. Just prior to our last truce he had the system label me a "jackass." Oddly enough it also highlighted my name as if I were a mod. :D

He's threatened before that "you'll find yourself becoming a pretty, pretty girl." I'm hoping that's a reference to another board category he can lump me into, but asked him to keep me out of any sick fantasies he may have just in case. :eek:

Uh, mates, why not go on a "Pistols at Dawn" thread? You could do a You mama so fat kinda thing... Come on, it would be fun. The Pundit is stupid. No! Jimmy's stupider! Wouldn't that be nice?
And yeah, I agree with tht if it comes to banning, it will be a nasty precedent. For everybody.

I just want to go on record as being the FIRST to call for a serious Pistols/thunderdome style showdown.  And Then I'll just add my voices to the throngs calling for it.

Entertain me, Motherfucker!


that said. James, going into the pundit's 'personal' forum and commenting about 'wow, more pundit stuff' is rather...er... stalkerish. I mean, it's not like that part of the forum isn't clearly labled as "pundit's turf".   This of course, has led to that.

Pundit: vague mutterings of 'measures being taken' are rather... er... bullying or some such.  Either let it go or DO something. Don't threaten with vague 'something' for days on end.  Banning, of course, would be the end of the dream. But it's your dream, not mine... I've just been 'basking in the freedom'...

Now, get thy passive agressive behinds into the thunderdome. Two men enter, one man leaves.
For you the day you found a minor error in a Post by Spike and forced him to admit it, it was the greatest day of your internet life.  For me it was... Tuesday.

For the curious: Apparently, in person, I sound exactly like the Youtube Character The Nostalgia Critic.   I have no words.
