RPGs are not that topic. You can't talk coherently about the recent statements by WOTC, Paizo and Gunmetal outside the context of current events.

That's probably a clue right there. Think about it.

I've discussed that with RPGPundit in the past and his stance is everyone has free will to click on threads that interest them and avoid threads that do not. I can't argue with that. We are all adults and if we lack the willpower to stop clicking on threads that upset us, that's not Pundy's problem.

This is Mos Eisley. Nobody forces us into the cantina.

Why are "recent statements by WOTC" things you put in the category of "stuff that makes us happy"?

It's an RPG board. Not a stock discussion board where we talk about public statements of corporations. Why can't we talk about the actual fucking games more, and the thoughts of the people who work for game companies about companies less?

Heal thyself, physician. It's you bitching about Pundit asking people to stop finding excuses to peddle their political messages, remember?

I'd say between you and me, it's you who is risking perma-ban due to willpower issues, not me mang. I'm trying to talk you into not going down that road. You have the free will to continue to rage about SJWs in general and then get permanently banned (he's warned you more than once). OR, you have the free will to decide maybe you're not so good at keeping it to just RPG politics and so the smartest path is to just focus more on the stuff that brings you joy with RPGs.

Which, for what it's worth, I happen to think is your best stuff. Often brilliant. It would suck to lose that because of the 180th "SJWs suck!" post of the week which accidentally crosses the line.
