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.
The message boards have been upgraded. Please log in to your existing account by clicking here. It will ask twice, so that it can properly update your password and login information.

The RPGPundit's Own Forum Rules
This part of the site is controlled by the RPGPundit. This is where he discusses topics that he finds interesting. You may post here, but understand that there are limits. The RPGPundit can shut down any thread, topic of discussion, or user in a thread at his pleasure. This part of the site is essentially his house, so keep that in mind. Note that this is the only part of the site where political discussion is permitted, but is regulated by the RPGPundit.

An in-depth exoneration of Chris Avellone
« on: September 07, 2020, 04:41:26 pm »


A masterful takedown of the deceitful #MeToo accusers responsible for destroying Chris Avellone's career. Not much more to add other than this is the way to do an exposé: thorough, accurate, and free of embellishment or personal bias.

Still not sure I understand why these women would turn on him like this though.

So a 45 minute video to say "bitches be lying"?

Because these people’s lives, livelihood, self-esteem and self-worth are based on clicks received?

Yeah I am starting to see why in the Magna Carta it said men have to back up any claim made by a woman in ordered to be taken seriously.  These lying bitches do more damage to other women and those bitches don't care at all.

Claims need to be backed by hard evidence, period. We REALLY need to bring back the 'calumny' charge.

I am so glad the Sandmann suits continue to grind through the courts.

In the UK it still does, I thought. There was a case of fraudulent calumny before the court in 2017. (Or am I wrong in believing you're in the UK for some reason?)

In the US, there's no charge of calumny, but that's mostly because we found it to be redundant with all the other types of fraud in common law and in statute. If the specific action, for whatever reason, did not rise to the level of fraud, then there's still defamation actions. Basically, any time where calumny could become an issue, there was another criminal or civil action which could be levied.

Naw, I'm in the U.S.

Considering the reach of social media and the Internet, though, there needs to be harsh penalties for smearing someone's name.

Going with a innocent man who gets locked in prison for a decade on the charges of rape the lying bitch should be locked up for those same amount of years.  No exceptions to this shit.  Once these lying bitches (as I refuse to call them women) know the full weight of what they face if caught it may prevent innocent men from going to prison.
