An important notice on political threads in the main forum

--- Quote from: Kyle Aaron;1137066 ---A good game group will be indifferent to the opinions of other gamers about their play. And arbitrary rulings by the DM prohibiting excessive off-topic talk at the game table do not ever lead to the game group becoming an echo chamber, they lead to the game group focusing on the game.

Until the DM is forced to close shop, because the group was playing in an online platform where the DM relied on paid adds and traffic, as well as promoting his own products, to generate revenue to keep the platform running, support his expensive hobby and keep the players entertained. But with dwindling traffic due to mounting defamation from his detractors, as well as his own reputation for permanently expulsing players from his campaign for asking simple questions (as you suggest), he was eventually no longer able to maintain the platform.

So the players are forced to disband and look for another game group, but no one will have them because others had been spreading rumors, unchallenged, that they were Neo-Nazis for too long, and now everyone regards as such and don't want them in their group. So now they're unable to either talk off-topic or focus on the game.

Fuck it. The more I think about this, the more getting banned sounds kinda fun.

I'm living in an America on self-destruct. Ain't got the energy to care about game forum "decorum".  

Getting banned just means becoming a lurker. AKA, being able to gain anything useful from theRPGsite without adding anything.

If Kyle (and others) has his way you probably won't be the one getting banned, though. It'll be people asking impertinent questions, like "Why would anyone oppose BLM?" So we'll able to complain about company X supporting BLM unimpeded--with minimal risk of getting banned--cuz there'd be no one to even object to our complaints and tempt us into straying into discussing broader national issues by addressing their concerns. So we'd be keeping the political talk within the confines of the RPG hobby, by virtue of being the only side of the discussion present.

Damn, I should've asked you that same question instead of following your silly metaphors!

Anyways, scroll all the way up, then look at the upper right corner.
