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.

The modsquad running rpg.net apparently pushed a user named Jackalope into a meltdown in which he allegedly sent threatening emails to some members of the mod squad. (As a personal note, I'd like to punch out a few of those self admitted tyrants myself, so I can sympathize.)

Well, users there proceeded to compare him to rpgpundit, once again bashing someone who couldn't defend himself due to banning.

Cowardly on top of everything else....

Click on his profile then look at his posting history.

All that's missing is an avatar depicting a pair of crossed gin bottles emblazoned on a bucket of dog turds.


EDIT: And a boxing glove.

EDIT 2: And mail order degrees in murderology and murderonomy.

What?

 You guys think he's created a sockpuppet that fast??

Could fit a pattern - but the time frame is very much condensed when compared to others.

Then how do you know about the banning?

edit - fell for a cunning ploy by a sock puppet...darn it I though I had grown up, but despite being an RPG.net regular, and despite the cliche to the contrary, I never check post count and join dates in a posting, so I missed the pertinent...

So the fuck what?

Whatever and who cares what they do on another forum?  Seriously.

When guys like you grow the fuck up and stop posting about rpg.net, then this place can truely evolve into what it should be.

Course as long as pundit keeps starting threads about it as well, it can hardly be blamed, but still.

And I never shed a tear, another sign of my condition

I kept a chain upon my door
That would shake the shame of Caine into a blind submission..."

Would someone mind to enlight me about what's going on, 'cause it sounds promising, but I somehow don't have a clue what are those mysterious remarks actually about. :deflated:

I think a show of hands would help matters.

Everyone who is here for a free shot at jackalope, shout "aye!"

Everyone who is jackalope, shout "Boo!"

Ayeboo! Booaye!

I'm not entirely sure where I fall. I'm not really here to snipe at Jackalope - couldn't give two shits, one way or the other, tell ya the truth - but the first I heard of this place was in a discussion about him. So... here I am.
