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.
NOTICE: Some online security services are reporting that information for a limited number of users from this site is for sale on the "dark web." As of right now, there is no direct evidence of this, but change your password just to be safe.

They had a conversation going on with frequent postings. After the ban came in there hasn’t been a post in over 24 hours. Do the mods at TBP consider this a “feature” of their bans in that these bans for badthink seem to cause other users to go silent? Or are they oblivious as to what their doing to the conversations that are otherwise maybe going along? Probably the first scenario at this rate.
Since Asklepios’ ban on Sunday there hasn’t been.a single additional post in 3 days. Sure looks like a “stifling” of discussion has occurred in a thread that was often generating pages of discussion in a single day.
The admin do not want 'discussion'. They want lockstep adherence to their ideas and slavish approbation.

Contrast this with here where a lot of us will toss punches at each other, but generally Pundit doesn't get involved unless (a) the thread goes wildly off track into politics, which he has specifically pointed out not to do, or (b) someone is just being a complete fuckwit (like matt swain). Hell, it's easier to just block the morons than get Pundit involved.
I’m tempted to post at TBP in that Order of the Stick thread an offer for them to take their discussion here, but I’m not sure that wouldn’t be considered violating some norm about cross-forum drama. I’d start a thread here myself, but I haven’t kept up with that strip in a few years.
You'd get banned for talking about 'a well known hate speech site'.

As has been demonstrated by the TBP mods, even discussion of certain topics can draw down a banhammer response.
Probably true. If a TBP user wants to diversify the forums they use they can probably do so on their own. For all I know that discussion died because those users have already moved where they’re having the discussion.
