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.
The message boards have been upgraded. Please log in to your existing account by clicking here. It will ask twice, so that it can properly update your password and login information. If it has trouble recognizing your password, click the 'Forgot your password?' link to reset it with a new password sent to your email address on file.

I've been informed that this is some kind of British way of saying "fuck you" to the original poster. Not speaking the language myself, I'm not really sure, but just in case, don't do that again.

Then shouldn't the thread title be "RPG.NET moderators are wankers"?

If you're going to trash on RPG.NET, I'd rather it be about the fact that half the time you get a "Servers Too Busy" message when you try to visit than about "bad mod call of the day".  But that's just my personal preference.  :p

Quite. Instead we'll have to make due with a smilie of a stereo-typical British MP's favourite hobby...playing catch of course.

This forum is for talking about RPGs? Huh? What are those?

It should be noted that, conversely, a "geezer" is not an insult in British English. Just listen to The Streets.

I'm not clear on the diff between "geezer" and "lad," though, and how that might map onto "homie" in American English.

Sumtara, we at the RPGsite strive to provide an emotionally safe environment. You have threatened that by posting on the wrong section.

Consider this a formal warning. The next time, you'll take three days off.

Sumtara, while some doubtlessly sympathize with your angst, posting TBP* whines in the RPG forum seems newbish, so scorn will be heaped upon you until a moderator comes along and cares enough to cleans this up, or it slips off the first page.
