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.

Poster A: I say, those bounders at Acme Game Co are uo to some parliamentary schenanigans!

Poster B: Zounds, I don't care for that one bit!

Poster C: Pray, good fellow, would you care to expound on these notions?

Pundit: What devilry confounds your efforts to remain on task?  Though I am loathe to do so, I have a mind to escort you to the exit by summary force!

Except that this is not what I'm saying. AS LONG AS YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT THE CONTEXT OF WHAT/HOW/WHY THE SJWS ARE DOING SOMETHING IN THE HOBBY, THAT'S FINE. There's no problem with that, the problem is when someone else shows up and says "Yeah, and let me tell you about something else I hate about Democrats that has nothing to do with RPGs" or "they're doing this other non-gaming related thing in schools" or "Yes but President Orange Man is doing this terribly bad thing that has nothing to do with the D&D hobby so how can you say you're not a racist?"

That makes much more sense. Thank you.

I suppose if if someone posts something both stupid and political, you can just say "Wow, you're an idiot!" and refute them without going into politics yourself at all
