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.

Mama Voodoo, the poster of the redneck valkyrie thread, has been permabanned over that posting. Her level of Wokeness couldn’t keep up with the mods, so the revolution eats another of their own for a trifling infraction.

I believe Mama Voodoo is a recurring poster who's been banned and un-banned since she's a "minorty", but goes off the rails even for TPB.

However in this case I’d argue it’s the mods who have gone off the rails in the general sense of the phrase. Unless you specifically meant she went off the bizarre and ever-changing set of rails the mods lay down at TBP.

I'm saying there's some history between the user and the mods.
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.

I'm reminded of the old saying about rpg.net, that for some of them the only roleplaying they do is pretending to be gamers.
Rules for effective DMing:
1. Bring snacks.
2. The dice are always right.
3. I master the game, the game does not master me.
4. Momentum over perfection.
5. The game must go on!

If that is what is causing angst and bans at TBP then I can think of no better example that puritanism has shifted to using a leftist secular vector as mainstream religion has lost influence. “I no longer believe in God, but I still absolutely fear that somebody may be having enjoyment of some kind that I don’t approve of.”

Every iteration of this cult has had these "moral guardians" at the forefront or neck-n-neck with the Social Injustice crowd. Just about every time the first stage is ever more stringent demands for censoring things. "Think of the children!" is their meat shield to hid behind. Around 2000 they also started trying to slip into legislature what some called a "Stalker Assist Law" that required any adult depiction of a woman to to have her name and home address on the image. That was as the 90s iteration of this was winding down and the 2010 version we now live in was yet to kick in.

Every fucking time.

I think I found the picture in question:

So it’s a bit of cheesecake, though I don’t think it’s a very good expression of cheesecake. The mods are going off that it’s coded pagan white supremacy, which has me wonder if there’s nothing in this world that they couldn’t define as white suprematism.


If that is your idea of cheesecake then you'd fit right in over on BGG.

Her body her choice right?  Who are we to deny women the right to display their sexuality in cheesecake photographs?

Now let me get back to my post project technical documentation which I am totally going to do and not browse through these Pintrest feeds all day.
I'll be honest, I'd be hard-pressed to not troll the shit out of them with 'I'm sorry you feel so threatened by a PROUD CONFIDENT WOMAN. Maybe someday you'll rid yourself of your internalized misogyny.'

That theory I saw about how wokeists hate beautiful things and people, and worship ugly things because it reflects their real selves, just seems to keep gathering momentum.

Nazi is such a bad word to use for these people. I prefer calling them communists because they're literal adherents to Stalin-esque tactics and seem to enjoy erasing their opponents from history.

*squinty eyes* That didn't help, son.

I'll cop to having been banned sometime last summer from the big purple for pointing out the inconvenient truth that Sean Young spent her time filming Blade Runner stoned out of her gourd, something that she herself has said in multiple interviews. Apparently, their habit of coming up with something that you didn't actually say and infracting you with that also meant that the mod team thinks I'm an Islamophobe and thus needed to be permakicked for a completely unrelated thing.  ::)
Ah, that was you? I remember seeing that ban and wondering how the fuck it was Islamophobic and anti-Palestinian. I mean, if they'd demanded you provide more than just 'I heard this', okay, but I was trying to figure out how Hollywood drug excesses linked to the whole Islam/Palestinian schtick.

I wonder if they get all hot and bothered when people remark on how Carrie Fisher was coked to the gills during RotJ, or how the Bespin landing port scene was slightly marred by the entire cast still being a bit inebriated after partying with Eric Idle.

EDIT: Oh look, they're doing their usual fundraiser/membership drive. More morons to grift money from and then ban when they say the wrong thing.

They're up past their $1000 goal, with 17 people paying out $30 and four paying out $150.

P.T. Barnum was right.

Yep. The context is that I had gotten a previous ban for "Reconquista Apologia" because I pointed out that Christians didn't (and don't) exactly have the best time under Islamic rule in a thread that started about St. Nicholas and Black Piet. Considering one of my seminary classmates (an Anglican priest) no longer lives in Pakistan because he was afraid for his wife and daughters, I have reasons to be salty on the topic.

Of course, if I wanted to indulge in actual Reconquista Apologia, I'd talk about how badly English-language historiography on the reemergence of Spain has been warped by anti-Catholic prejudice stemming from the Tudors and the Stuarts.

I would too, but communist just doesn't have the same sting as Nazi, though I think it should.

When I was a kid I always wanted to kill commies; Nazis had already been defeated. Leave it to the leftists to use a non-existent boogeyman to brand anyone they disagree with as evil.

Did they advertise that on their site somewhere?  I see it if I do a search on the fundraiser site but not on rpg.net.

There's a banner on their forum frontpage.

little update on Voodoo. She was a lying attention monger type. Last year she faked a pregnancy, and posted baby pictures stolen from an NBA player's kid.

When it was made public the mods swept it under the rug by deleting the thread.

That is insane.

That’s also far more worthy of a ban than what they got her for.

Lying to the community, and faking an identity of a person to get attention: The mods will help cover for you.

Slight deviation from their current flavor of Right-think: Permabanned with derision!
