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.

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:

Beats me. I went back to the original thread and it is not even entertaining. Sigh. I must be getting old... :shrug:

Well, users there proceeded to compare him to rpgpundit, once again bashing someone who couldn't defend himself due to banning.
Oh NOES!  Someone on TBP talking down this site!  Why, surely this means war!

You know, in a way, this would almost be a let-down if Zardoz proved to be a sock puppet of Jackalope, because it's about the only thing that will bring down a perfunctory banning from Pundy.

I'm pretty sure he means he's never been Jackalope on any forum, not that he himself has never been on any forum before. The grammar's a bit fuzzy, but the meaning can be derived from context.

I'm sorry to let this out, but I don't think most posters on TBP actually know about us.

Which is all to the good, seeing I'm naturally elitist and all.  But it does mean that I don't think TBP as a whole is really bashing this place.

Otherwise, some folk on Trouble Tickets, the forum where one sucks up to mods for no particularly good reason (since the mods, no matter what some here may think, don't particularly ask for anyone to do that) suck up to the mods by making comments about pundy.

In other news, water still wet.  Rpg.net's moderation policies IMO inadvertently (and yes I do mean inadvertently) create a subculture of sycophancy, so it goes.

Still, while I'm here, and just for the added offence to my fellow locals, I would like to mention that I actually think Nina is a damn good mod and if a site needs mods she's about what you'd hope for.  I like Darren too.

Why would you create a sockpuppet here?

I mean, on a forum with passionate arguments where having supporters really matters, it might be worth it. And if you've been banned but still want to comment, makes sense.

But here no-one cares whether your opinion is held by one or many, they just praise or abuse it on what they think are its own merits, and it's nearly impossible to get yourself banned.

Or maybe Jackalope didn't like the way he started here and wanted a fresh start?

I dunno, all this stuff is just too needlessly complicated, it does my head in.

I'm out of touch with moderation but from what little I have seen, Dan Davenport was doing a really good job as mod.

Well, technically, he's probably one of 25 or so who NOW read this site, since he joined after Cessna's comment.

Just sayin'.

Still, it is nice to have him here, if even for a short time. Always liked him. Seemed the fair sort.

Actually all the mods from rpg.net come here, looking for rpg.net users who dare criticize rpg.net (I.E. them) here so they can ban them for it there.

Really, I quite doubt that.  It's always nice to feel important, though.

Don't be ridiculous mate. Have you seen the amount of time the mods spend over there watching the threads? Why should they bother coming here? They freely admit this place handles views different to those they'll allow there, and recommend it as an alternative.

The mods do come here, and they see how they're being talked about, so some wanker doesn't spend weeks on end moaning about them to his (bored) captive audience without a right of reply.

Also, they don't have to abide by their own rules here. Levi really let go at some pople about a year ago which was entertaining.

On the other hand, that sort of feeling also prompted Levi's resignation as an rpg.net mod. As a mod, he felt a duty to have some restraint in what he said, but he then realised he wanted to tell people when he thought they were being cocks :p

The rules are daft, anyway. It's like all those sites where there are rules against using profanity against people. I don't know about you guys, but the times when I've felt genuinely hurt by something someone said, or offended, it rarely had any profanity at all. You have to know someone fairly well to really insult them, or just get lucky and hit a raw nerve. And that's got nothing to do with whether your comment has rude words in it or not.
