No information about why yet.

Apparently he has ruffled some feathers in the past, there are a couple of (too) lengthy threads on BGG with something about a frog and a white power symbol, but does anyone know anything more about this guy?

Google has not been my friend in this matter.

Well, your link talks about his picture of a frog making the 'OK' gesture, which 'has a long history of being a white power symbol' -- which is complete dogshit since that meme came out of fucking 4chan.

Looks like it might be tied up in this: https://boundingintocomics.com/2021/09/15/the-gaming-goat-condemned-by-ttrpg-community-after-being-accused-of-using-white-supremacist-symbol-in-new-tournament-fishing-game/

Which is, of course, more dogshit (not on BTC's part, but the whole 'ermahgerd, OK is white power!' bit).

  Long history of white power symbol.... what a fucking crock of shit.   Why is it, the people who are so woke know every fucking dogwhistle/conspiracy theory that has ever existed?  It seems to me people just make shit up and roll with it.  I have no doubt he is trolling their dumbasses with something that exists only in their minds, but if meme trolling people is uber racists, we are doomed as a culture.

That's literally what happens, haha. The beautiful autists on /pol/ make up something ridiculous (like the whole OK/white power thing) that is just believable enough, then they spread it pretending to be SJWs and acting like it's a "real" thing. Then real SJWs latch on to it thinking it's real, effectively making it real, with the chans laughing about it the whole way through. 4chan memes shit into reality often, it seems. Weird (but hilarious) timeline we're in, lads.

Honestly looks more like that frog is playing the circle game to me
