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.

  I think all these people with their horror stories should go work for a few weeks on a construction site.  I think that might help them with perspective.

Well, that's the thing... If you work in the 'real world' and you get screwed over you learn and just deal with it. The people I've real sympathy for here are the freelancers who did the work and never got a penny (allegedly).

  Getting robbed is one thing, but the majority of complaints I see are they dealt with shitty people/the job sucked.  I think a few weeks of being a laborer on a brick laying crew would do a shitload for those people's perspective.

Yeah, but it's 2022 man we've got to all 'do better'.

The funny thing is if you're being treated badly by someone just leave. Or get another job. A lot of these stories are, 'they were mean to me, but I didn't want to say anything because other people from the community might not like me anymore'. And coming out years after the fact.

  Dead on.  I just do not get the internet complaints.  When I first heard about this, I thought I would be reading a story where they drugged and raped people in a torture dungeon.  It seems they were just assholes.  Do kids today never encounter an asshole growing up?
Sure they encounter them. And from what I've heard, they eat them these days.

   Ah, thus the spread of Monkey Pox.

I admit to enjoying this all a little too much as well.
Not possible.

Oh he's already under the bus and it's in Low-2, and Satine is about to angrily order the driver to take his foot off the clutches.  (See what I did there?  There's no way she'd be driving.)

But yeah they've taken hits amidship and are taking on water.

Stone's & Phoenix's apologies are priceless on FB. I had to read them from behind the couch.  :D

Classic abuser behavior.  "It wasn't me!  It was my personality disorder!  I'm so sorry you're disappointed in me!  Did I mention how much I love you???"

"I Hate You! Don't Leave me!" is a fantastic book to read for dealing with partners with BPD.     In this case we all fully well know that they are both trotting out the symptathy/pity/therapy card here in hopes of reducing backlash and it's failing miserably after the sheer volume of behavior has come to light.

Both of their Non-Apologies are falling on deaf ears and dopamine adled twitter users who want the +1s and <3 for being Stunning and Brave standing upto "OMG LITERALLY HITLER!"

The best thing that can come of this is both fade from public eye and never be heard from again.

I saw them in the event program for the convention, I didn't know who they were, I still don't really care who they are, and I didn't know anything about this until the convention emailed everyone after the convention ended saying they care about our safety.  I still don't care. This reminds me of high school drama.

Because it is as most of these folks still think they are still in HS with the pettiness that circulates around them and their behaviors.

Yeah, the whole thing has done nothing but gain momentum.  People sleeping on it has only led to more revelations, etc.  And now Gen Con has responded to a forum call to, you know, "DO SOMETHING!" and they are saying they're investigating.  https://www.gencon.com/forums/87-general-info-2022/topics/17609-satine-phoenix-jamison-stone

Pretty sure that's only going to go one way.  And now we're talking real $'s to them since one of her talks was for $100/ticket and to play in her game it was $200/ticket.  I'm pretty sure, judging by the Twitter Hate Train this is only going to have one outcome, but I hope it's a slow one as I'm having too much fun with it.  I know; issues.

Interesting to me was the next to last line in the comicbooks.com article:  "Wizards of the Coast declined to comment for this story."  I'm guessing there's a meeting going on somewhere in those halls right now.

The hell with all of them..both Satine and Stone plus all the bedwetters who have found the collective fortitude to finally speak up.

They all deserve each other, and honestly I take zero pleasure in any of this. It isn’t entertaining when the social justice mob attacks, and I cannot bring myself to celebrate it, even if it is a couple of zeroes on the other side. Losers, all of them.

Who am I supposed to hate out of all of this?

The rpg.net A-Game thread is like 22, 23 pages now?
I guess Magpie Games is tied up in this via Satine Phoenix, and they're a pretty woke-azz company (in the RED category on the list), so I guess it's a firing for her since she's got the scarlet letter on her sleeve now.

What a sh!tshow. Another circle jerk of hate.

"Internet douchebags are douchey" is not a revelation that requires fifty thousand words of outrage.

Average human beings got elevated to a status they were certainly not worthy of; they became arrogant and condescending, treated people like shit, got called out for doing so, and then their careers crashed and burned?  Ok.  I think I understand what happened here.
