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.

If you're posting there, just remember that it's now wrong to refer to "waiting for the cavalry to arrive" or even "the cavalry comes to the rescue."

 ;D  They probably don’t let their kids sing Ring Around The Rosie.  Wouldn’t want to offend the ancestors of the dead plague victims.

They have become a parody of themselves.

On some level, I seriously pity them.
If I stop replying, it either means I've lost interest in the topic or think further replies are pointless.  I don't need the last word, it's all yours.

In the end, revolutionaries always up eating their own tail.  I have trouble sympathizing with their long term, self destructive and self hating behavior.  The reality is that they're in an escalation spiral and will eventually only allow discussion of the black and white bootleg copy of the My Little Pony rpg because everything else is simply too EVIL for them to condone.

Greetings!

Ahh, geesus. What a thread full of BS there. Let the sobbing, whining snowflakes Reee as they are trampled by the hooves of the U.S. 7th Cavalry!

The magnificent regimental song of the U.S. Army's famous 7th Cavalry Regiment was the old Irish limerick known as "Gary Owen". The glorious song was often played of course at regimental ceremonies, but also when the cavalry regiment rode into battle. The U.S. Army regiment serves to this day, and has a long and famous history of brave American warriors serving within the regiment's ranks.

Semper Fidelis,

SHARK

"It is the Marine Corps that will strip away the façade so easily confused with self. It is the Corps that will offer the pain needed to buy the truth. And at last, each will own the privilege of looking inside himself  to discover what truly resides there. Comfort is an illusion. A false security bred from familiar things and familiar ways. It narrows the mind. Weakens the body. And robs the soul of spirit and determination. Comfort is neither welcome nor tolerated here."

One pities them. They are crafting a hell on earth for themselves. Virtue signaling, as Alex d’T noted, would end the Republic.

I would pity them, but they're so self-righteous and obnoxious I'd rather chase them down the street, hitting them with a shoe.

I, for one, LURVE the Big Purple.


Oh, not to post there, or even read there... no no nononononono.....

I think it is ever so useful to see exactly what indulging in the their brand of 'nice' leads to.  I hope their death spiral is long and slow and, in fact, never ending.  I would like to live so long as to see RPG.net hosted on a pole as a warning to the next ten generations that some niceties come with too high a price. I would look up at them and grin and give them a little wave...

HA!  Vir Cotto my man!

B5 for life! :)

Now that's funny. :D

But now, the latest thing is that you're not allowed to criticize the female mods on TBP. Because that's 'Holdoing'.

I'm pausing to try and... y'know, comprehend that. Naming perceived sexist criticism after a Star Wars character who was practically a political appointee and whose competence was HIGHLY questionable at the very best. I mean, Poe's Law is over there in the corner sobbing into his whiskey.

I think Orwell was spot on when he discussed the destruction of words as a tool of authoritarian control.  There's a whole thread on Tangency about rethinking geek speak.  I think what they're missing is that they've gotten old and now, like the mothers who were frothing at the mouth about satanism in the eighties, they're frothing in a panic over stuff.

I think Orwell was... well, not wrong, but off a little bit.  I think that the left sees itself is a state of perpetual revolution, even though they have power they don't have POWAH, so they are still revolutionaries fighting 'the man', whomever that is.

It is characteristic of revolutionaries, at least as far back as Thucydides (I've pointed this out here in the past), to corrupt language to disguise what they are doing, and you know the revolution is over, one way or another, when language gets 'fixed', because whomever wins inevitably re-asserts the common understanding of words as soon as they have power (or in this case POWAH).

Orwell is only right because the authoritarians are also the rebels. Once they've succeeded in setting up some sort of absolute feudal state and reduced the rest of us to primitive serfs working the land under their new regime (having gotten rid of that pesky ambitious and freedom loving middle class...), then they'll hate weird weasel words and 'that depends on what "is" means' language in a heart beat, to shut down the next group of revolutionaries that comes down the pipe.
For you the day you found a minor error in a Post by Spike and forced him to admit it, it was the greatest day of your internet life.  For me it was... Tuesday.

Well, TBP is giving us plenty of material lately.

We know that this is people who are pissy and outraged about having a woman tell them what to do.

Neat. So whaddda ya do when a "woman or woman identifying mod" is acting like a shit? Gotta go over her head and talk to a manager? I can see how well that would turn out.
And I have to wonder what about RPG.net attracts people who are "pissy and outraged about having a woman tell them what to do." It looks like all of their progressive rules just make things more sexist and generally awful... *ponder*
The notion of an exclusionary and hostile RPG community is a fever dream of zealots who view all social dynamics through a narrow keyhole of structural oppression.

  Holdoing is perfect for the RPGNet mods--one's opinion of the character seems likely to correlate directly with how likely they are to be a 'good fit' for the site.
