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 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.

Discord to ban you for off-site "hateful" behaviour
« on: March 01, 2022, 03:52:58 PM »
Like the tin says, Discord changed it's TOS and now will ban people for Off-Site "hateful" behaviour.

Before anyone says they can't possibly police us all, they don't need to, all it takes is a blue haired landwhale reporting you and kiss your online RPG game goodbye.

Just unplug from Twatter and Farcebook where the landwhales roam and you’ll both avoid the gaze of those miserable wretches and put another dent in those cesspools’ bottom lines. If enough people do it, they might even notice.

Also, don’t invite anyone you haven’t vetted elsewhere onto your private gaming channels… but that’s just good practice anyway.

ETA: if you haven’t already, just change/use a different profile name on each of the social media platforms so they can’t link the accounts as easily.

So cut off from all social media because Discord and also somehow vet people before inviting them to your discord (how without social media?).

I've a better solution, dump Discord and migrate to https://www.guilded.gg/

If you think Twitter and Facebook = “all social media” then you’ve already lost and have conceded to giving money (adrev) to people who hate you.

Unplug from all of it… I use Gab instead of Twitter, the Brave browser and BraveSearch instead of Google, Rumble in place of YouTube, here instead of TBP… never even used Facebook to begin with. I research on and pay extra for things made in the USA (North America failing that, not China failing that).

I’ll investigate sharedd.gg to see if it’s actually pro-free speech and if it is, add it to my list.

Just make sure to build up your social credit score, citizen, and you'll be fine!

  Well...about gab....I went on there to see what was going on, and it looked like a shit show, with some "interesting" videos spammed.   

  Discord though...well it seems that whole social credit thing people had concerns over are filtering into gamer life.  I have used their chat for an online video game, but never anything past that, though the guys whose channel I am on do have a D&D game they run on there.   I wonder how long till one of them gets in trouble (most of the guys are people I barely know, and they are younger and like to pop out an edgy joke from time to time) and it comes to bite them.

  You beat me to the punch on that one.  Does seem a little ominous.  I am sure there will be a build your own call going out again...just no hosting on any of the mega giants that more or less own the various cloud computing networks.

Or; In-Person Gaming, around a Real Table.
Whenever I play D&D; the Drow are Extra Dark, and Extra Evil.

Just the way Gary Gygax intended.

That won't be done, on my part.  Online life isn't essential.  I promise, we can live without it.

That'll be easy for my current group: The DM is in the UK, 3 players in the USA (1 in Texas and the other two who knows where) and I'm in México.  :-

If you think blue haired landwhales won't go fishing on those other places to find people to purge from Discord...

Don't worry, they're developing government controlled digital currency to better control you.

Fix the fact Discord is quickly becoming the wold's primary source for malware? Nah. We haven't had a Great Leap Forward recently; lets carouse around the internet looking for justifications to ban people we don't like.
