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.

Why do I have this feeling, that therpgsite is  considered the North Korea of gaming forums :D ( btw, does anyone have the launch codes for our nukes...I need em' for something...)
Pretty sure I don't buy that ... even if I also don't buy the inflated rhetoric that Pundit's using to reply to it.  It's not a country, it's not a revolution, it's not a breakfast cereal.  It's an internet forum.  It's less real than breakfast cereal.

I forget, is this a Conspiracy X or Spycraft actual play thread? :(

Ah ... so you have boldly survived people's opinion that you'd screw up.  Not exactly the gravest threat any burgeoning community's ever faced, is it?

Uh ... huh.  You feel that there are people who, in their hearts but (one presumes) not actually in any observable actions, are dedicated to your downfall?  Do you see how that could look, from the outside, the least little bit paranoid?


Oh, there have been actions; mainly efforts at subversion, and the presence of ideologically opposed individuals who appear to be here almost exclusively to try to attack/insult/shit upon anything that is said, and to try to "defend" the Swine at every turn, try to sneak in assumptions about Forge jargon to dominate the conversation, etc.

But you surely wouldn't know any people like that would you Tony? Certainly, you wouldn't know someone who's goal appears to be to try to paint me as "the least little bit paranoid", or incompetent, or evil, or dangerous, or what-have you; or to basically try to trip me up at every turn in the secret hope that I, and thus this site, fail?

Nope.  I do know some people who have a straightforward agenda of having fun on the site, and pointing out some of the times when you particularly act the loon.  Maybe you're mistaking them for secret conspirators?
