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.

So, again - what happened? I'm not giving you a hard time, I want to know.


 Ask me in a PM ...had a minor work emergency earlier tonight.
I wind up getting more hours the next 2 weeks at the game store. The timing on all this just sucked.

You guys wanna know ? You really wanna know ?  Send me a PM or e-mail . When the SJG forums tempa-bnanned me for 48 hours ...I didn't feel  like gossiping about that either.

 Want to know the last thread that I was annoyed with? Look in the Tangency section.

 As a short note to all of this : On here the ones who act like assholes have much better manners than the ones who like A-holes over there. Thats not sucking up, just a pattern that I've noticed.

 That may not be a big deal - but it does make some of you look a little better  - whether you like to hear that or not.

My sources tell me that this Tangency thread got Koltar upset and bannorzed. It was about global warming. Koltar expressed his usual wilful ignorance of the subject - "tell me about it, I don't believe it, give me proof," "Here are some links," "Okay I won't read those but will just keep saying I don't believe it" - and was duly roasted by the usual Tangency mixture of Middle-Classed Bleeding Hearts and People Who Actually Know What They're Talking About. The latter group is the minority of course, but it's there.

When you talk bullshit, you get called on it, though it has to be in a roundabout way on rpg.net, and get called on that bullshit even when it's bullshit about important issues (the indignation is usually greater with unimportant issues, like whether Traveller 4e was any good). Koltar's not usually the target of being called on bullshit, so he got upset about it.

Others will have to check, as I'm bannzorzed myself, I can't see the thread in question.

Edit: oh, and for reasons unknown, he followed it up wth PMed legal threats to the mods. Which demonstrates once again that rpg.net, or any discussion forum, really has only one rule: don't fuck with the mods.

By-the-way.....


 Considering the many, many strands of gray hair in my beard  - seeing the phrase young man next to my name all night actually gives me quite a smile.

 Thanks WereKoala!!

"I recognise the surface of the earth is warmer and that an increase in greenhouse gases caused by humans is contributing to the problem," - President GW Bush, 7 July 2005

Even a retarded, dyslexic, alcoholic and incompetent businessman who never got a job without his pappy givin' it to him and who never reads the papers because he has staffers to tell him what's happening recognises it.

It's hard being an oppressed minority. It makes you angry. Just ask El Fight The Man! Latino Amado G, if you can find that pasty-faced, pseudocommie, middle-classed, self-pitying fucker.

I'm angry, I tells ya. I'ma gonna sue.

Kyle , you're blathering - go share a drink with either Jeff or Sett.
One of them might be buying.

Do you want to know how to tell that Global Warming isn't really about Global Warming but is about anti-industrialization?

First, the focus from the usual suspects is always about cutting carbon dioxide emissions and never about ways to take the carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere.  And, yes, there are plausible ways we might be able to do that.

Second, the usual suspects aren't embracing alternate fuel technologies that create oil from, for example, organic farm waste, even though the carbon it uses won't contribute to an increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide.  I've seen at least one commentator say of such technology that "the bad news" about the technology is that it will let industrialization go on.

Third, the usual suspects demand compliance with agreements like Kyoto that will have huge economic impacts but almost zero impact on atmospheric carbon dioxide.  And, of course, few countries are actually complying with Kyoto who have signed up for it.

Fourth, many of the usual suspects who make the most noise will be least impacted by the medicine that they prescribe for everyone else and don't seem to do a very good job of leading the sort of austere lifestyle they expect everyone else to live.  Carbon credits?  Give me a break.  How about real unilateral reductions if they really believe what they are saying?

You know, a lot of that describes me, but I think I call people racist less.
I mean, it still happens sometimes, but I usually apologize. :deflated:

Here's my website. It's defunct, but there's gaming stuff on it. Much of it's missing. Sorry.

I've got a blog. Do you read other people's blogs? I dunno. You can say hi if you want, though, I don't mind company. It's not all gaming, though; you run the risk of running into my RL shit.

Buncha goddamn commie mutant traitors!



Morrow, stay on topic for once. This is about Koltar getting banned. Which is because he got upset and thought he saw a librul consipracy agin' him. When really it was just that he was talking bullshit, and talking the kind of bullshit that you're allowed to call on rpg.net. Most you can't, that you can.

This thread is about mocking Koltar for forgetting the one rule of any discussion forum: don't fuck with the mods.

I had a lot more hair on my head when I was that kid's age. (it was the 1970s, had to rebel a little bit against my Dad somehow)


 Actually if you guys pay me enough - I'll post as my avatar a shot of me when I was that  age.  (Or verified proof of a big amount donated to an actual charity)

Morrow, stay on topic for once.

You introduced the underlying issue as a topic.  Stop talking trash and then getting upset when someone else calls you on it.  As if your entirely predictable anti-American shtick is on topic?

Have you actually asked Koltar exactly why he was banned and what he was annoyed at?

Eh.  Here I can call the site owner a lawncrapper.  That's because he also happens to actually put his money where his mouth is when it comes to moderation principles.  What Koltar forgot is that the mods on TBP often have no sense of humor.
