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.

'Forgey' stuff in the UK?

Which interestingly enough comes full circle around to the fact that what you just said has nothing whatsoever to do with what either I or Warthur or Pundit were saying.

He, and I, were both talking about popularity in terms of their familiarity with actual gamers and game stores.

He wasn't talking about "general public media".  Nor do I see a reason why I should give a flying fuck about the "general public media", or what the point of your little rambling is, except to assume as per usual that this is another attempt to slam at D&D, which would certainly keep with your posting habits.

Do you even read the posts in the fucking thread before you go off on this idiotic little tangents?

Er, it was a general comment about media. How this stuff works. What is suppose to do. Although in the case of Traveller it is a very direct comparison.

However the principle does certainly pertain. It be on topic.

Hey, if you aren't interested in the topic why should you even post at all!

Oh, my habits? Those would be the ones that include having good things to say about D&D (particular 3/3.5)? So what if I don't constantly and without fail:
1) pine about the good ol' days
2) praise every (A)D&D turd that happens to float down the pipe
3) mention a game in a neutral sense

Wow.  You really didn't read the thread, did you?  You apparently didn't even bother to read the OP.

Either that or you have the reading comprehension skills of a gnat on speed.

Oddly enough not only did I read it and grasp it, but it's RPGPundit that seems to be having the hardest time picking stuff up. With a close second to you. :D

I'm curious though where you live and what kinds of stores you go to? Because I have seen a number of IPR books on the shelf. At least in places where I'd find anything even close to the assortment of RPG games talked about here. Like, um, Traveller. :)  EDIT: I live in Canada, not the US. But I really doubt that has much bearing on it.
