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.

Wow. You guys are morons.
« on: March 31, 2008, 03:45:26 am »
Anyone ever see those commercials a few years ago with the ridiculous posers running a cell phone company, charging ridiculous fees and acting like clowns, and the guy looks at them in disbelief and stays in an almost stunned tone "You guys are morons."

Well, I know just how he felt. :rolleyes:


I looked up this "noxgate" thing and I see a guy speaking out against a fanatical religious movement that wants to turn the world into one big religious dictatorship, and he's called a racist for it, even though he was speaking against a religion and not a race.

Pundit claims that western culture is better than any other, and then claims only anglo saxons, I.E. white people, can run it right and you're giving me shit for calling him a racist?

My god, I think I've finally reached the most complete abnegation of intelligence the internet has to offer. In fact this site may represent the utter antithesis of intelligence. As impossible as it may sound, I think this board's average user IQ would be in the negative numbers...:eek:

I mean, I'm just literally stunned by the magnitude of stupidity here.

You guys are morons. Seriously.

Brett, Pundit, are we sure there's no sockpuppeting going on? Jackalope, Zardoz, and the one with the troll avatar - surely there can't be three guys who are cocksmocks in exactly the same way, all signing up within 24 hours?
Rules for effective DMing:

2. The dice are always right.
3. I master the game, the game does not master me.
4. Momentum over perfection.
5. The game must go on!

If they're not socks, probably just buddy-buddies, like our friends over at Animalball, the Forge, or the 4chan types.  Like to swarm a site en masse, stir up the populace for their own amusement.

Dude.  I am not Zardoz, and I do not have a sock puppet.

That's true, they might be like those Animalball drongos.

Why don't they just have an rpg session to amuse themselves like everyone else? Though I s'pose it's no surprise if they can't get a group...

Please learn something about the history of racism before you begin throwing that word out.

The concept of white identity was created to unite various Caucasian peoples into one broad category.  Anglo-Saxon does not mean white, white identity subsumes Anglo-Saxon, Gallic, Scandanvian, Germanic and Celtic peoples.

White people do not exist.  White identity is a politically created fiction.

Anglo-Saxon people do exist.  Anglo-Saxons are a distinct genetic group with common genetic markers.  You cannot determine if a person is white by looking at their genetic code or DNA.  You can, however, determine if they are Anglo-Saxon.

I have a black (black is also a political fiction) friend who had his DNA tested to determine which part of Africa his ancestors came from.  The test determined his ancestors were from Western Europe, and that he was genetically Anglo-Saxon.

In other words, you are an idiot who has no idea what racism is, or what he's talking about.

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.

I know you are, but what am I?
I start from his boots and work my way up. It takes a good half a roll to encompass his jolly round belly alone. Soon, Father Christmas is completely wrapped in clingfilm. It is not quite so good as wrapping Roy but it is enjoyable nonetheless and is certainly a feather in my cap.

'Both Father Christmas and Roy Orbison are completely wrapped in clingfilm,' I say to Jetta.

I place Santa next to Roy and stand in between them. With some difficulty I wrap all three of us up together as best I can. We enjoy a quiet but satisfying yuletide until people from the social services come to release us.

God Bless us one and all.

I´m not sure, but I think we have some inter-board fifth columnists or partisans doing some uncoordinated guerilla work. I do not see fully through the smokescreen, but something fishy is going on, that might only make sense for those still having ties to RPG.Net, I fear.

I'd like to think we were way funnier than this drivel. But no, nobody except me remains from the sole incursion here from Animalball. I think Brasky stops by to read, but doesn't post. No one else-to my knowledge stuck around, or has been back since. (And this guy definitely isn't funny enough or smart enough to be from AB, or for that matter Bulldrek.)

What makes your statement even more hilarious is taking this all literally and imagining Zardoz the poster as Sean Connery representing the horse riding, red nappy, clay faced 'barbarians' of RPG.Net infiltrating the halcyon, free love, hippies of the RPGsite. All that remains is to decide who are the senile aged ones and where the hell is my flying castle?
