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.

On the topic of "spotting the crazy" I think of Trysta Krick, a sports reporter who is a Phoenix Suns fan (NBA):

1) Can you spot the crazy?
2) Do you find the crazy appealing?

This is a video on one of her tweets:

Long discussion on ENWorld.

It was ok to disparage the people she accuses but not question her motives or behavior. 

Note in the former case there were allegations…in the latter she created a record to review first hand.
I used to be an active poster on ENWorld, but I finally left the site for good earlier this year after growing tired of the leftwing politics and the one-sided moderation. People make fun of RPGnet on this site, but ENWorld is not far behind in becoming a leftwing echo chamber.

Also, first post here. Hello, everybody.
Welcome to Mos Eisley.

Unless you use high-explosive grenade rounds. Then it's all OVER the place.

Sorry, I was working on upgrading my Combat Cyborg in Savage Worlds Rifts the other night. He likes using a grenade launcher loaded with high-ex.

But I get the reference. :) Sadly, no thermal detonators in Rifts -- yet.

I'm pretty confident your Borg with HE grenades doing Megadamage would have leveled the cantina.

I recall seeing a player in Star Wars Galaxies pull an AT-ST out of his datapad for a bar fight...

I don't know Jessica Price. 

But as anyone who has an ex-girlfriend knows, you can't spot crazy.  I mean, tin-foil hat or MRA shirt might give it away, but there's no sign of crazy in the photos pictured.  Making this a discussion about looks rather than behavior absolutely validates her points about misogyny in the workplace.

Off topic, kinda, but I've seen several players current and exs who were all over the place in how well they concealed or did not their madness and hate.

Its pretty much what D&D charisma is all about. You might look beautiful. But your personality can literally radiate hate.

People like Price and Sarkesian and others have a tendency to telegraph that they are false. Sarkesian in particular telegraphs she is a liar with nearly every word. But most just dont pick up on it. My mom and my aunt though were ridiculously good at covering to the point I did not know the scope of what was going on till after the fact. Neither of them telegraphed that they were being deceptive.

And it does mar her looks when the mask falls off. Which is what posters here are mostly picking up on. Something feels off.
