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.

Clearly that's not true.  You're here to continue being an asshole. 

One way you act like an asshole is insisting that someone's point has been addressed or rebutted when it has not.  Since you don't respond to the full point and/or have multiple posts in a row, it might seem to some people that you've addressed everything, but anyone that reads carefully will see that's it's just sham slight of hand.  Combined with your puerile need to get the last word it can be exhausting to keep pointing out that someone's original point still stands. 

So new week, new attempt to do that - I still think you're an asshole.  I think that our online interaction shows that you're an asshole. 
When I say objectively, I mean 'subjectively'.  When I say literally, I mean 'figuratively'.  
And when I say that you are a horse's ass, I mean that the objective truth is that you are a literal horse's ass.

You're doing this again. I already described it:
Quote
So just as someone saying something antisemitic and getting caught might say "You're unamerican!" because it's easier to be vague about what's "American" people who are caught lying say "You're an asshole" because it's way easier to endlessly be vague about who is and isn't an asshole.

Anyone who really thinks you had a meaningful point can reread the thread and fins out that isn't true.

You got caught lying lots of times in a row. You didn't apologize or admit it and instead are trying to change the subject. Doing that is like randomly kicking a dog in the face--once you do that, your "points" you think you're making don't matter to any rational person.

You are lying again.

Here's the proof:

Throughout the thread, when the burden of proof;s on me I posted it and when the burden of proof was on someone else I requested it and they failed to provide it (and usually changed the subject).

If you want to keep pretending you're not lying, then the thread's right in front of you as you read, you can easily click back and find an example to prove me wrong.

But you won't because you're lying.

The last time you tried to post "examples" was on this page: https://www.therpgsite.com/the-rpgpundit-s-own-forum/enjoy/480/

I then addressed the claims directly, one by one, and proved they were wrong on the same page.

You, of course, had an opportunity to counter and try to somehow disprove the counterclaims. You didn't and instead since then, unless I miss my count, you have posted four one-liners and an image macro.

tl;dr

Your examples turned out to be lying, you got caught and haven't bothered to even try to wriggle out of it. See link for proof.

No, you asserted that the claims were wrong. Assertion =/= proof. Again, why are you lying, Zak?

Edit: for fun, here is the comments section of the long-delayed Demon City Kickstarter. Zak challenges several people critical of him to sign affidavits. Seeing as it is highly unlikely that Zak intends to bring suit against any of these people, and even less likely that he could demonstrate damages if he did, this is nothing more than a transparent attempt on the part of Zak to use the implied threat of legal action to bully people. Zak's associate, Mike Evans, has even told people in the comments NOT to sign any legal papers offered by Zak. I feel for that dude. But these comments are good for a few laughs, nonetheless.

I'm afraid you're mistaken.  I said you were an asshole.  I can quote myself saying you're an asshole lots of times in this thread.  I've provided examples of why and how you're an asshole.  I've pointed out that your claims to 'rebut' my assertions instead only prove that you're an asshole because I say something to the effect of 'assholes be like dat' and then you come in immediately and post exactly what I'm describing as behavior that describes an asshole. 

I also haven't kicked any dogs in the face.  So I don't know why you think my 'points' don't matter to any rational person.  But unlike you, I don't try to decide what reasonable people can or should believe.  Instead I explain my position and let them come to their own conclusion.  More on that below.

Zak S., you're an asshole because of consistency of behavior.  I make a lot of allowances for other people.  Sometimes someone acts like a jerk but they didn't mean to.  Everyone has a bad day.  Sometimes they legitimately weren't aware of your presence (like when they cut you off).  It's easy to describe that type of behavior as someone being an asshole.  But if we got a chance to know the person, walk a mile in their shoes, we might find that our initial impression was a mistake.  They might be a generally good person who either came off badly in a single exchange or were distracted by some serious shit and had a momentary lapse in manners. 

You've asked me to quote you being an asshole (and I have), but one part of the challenge is that any individual statement might appear as misreading or representing tone.  Especially in a written medium, that can be a challenge.  A statement like 'is that what you're going to wear?' could be a legitimate question without any judgement perhaps to make sure you don't wear the same outfit or dress similarly.  But it could also be a diss making fun of someone's fashion sense.  How can one be sure?  Well, normally you can't be sure.  But when a behavior is repeated enough, and you're called on it over and over, you can be reasonably certain that someone is continuing that behavior because they're an asshole. 

So it is with you.  You have been called out for being dismissive many times.  You have been called out for redefining terms to your advantage many times.  You have been called out for arguing one point then claiming to have been arguing the opposite the entire time and people should just ask you for clarification instead of disagreeing with you.  I have linked to these examples, but because it requires reading 40+ pages of comments to fully understand context it's not easy or reasonable to demand that someone show you the single comment that proves, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that you're an asshole. 

Fortunately, I don't need to do that.  When I call you an asshole, that's a statement of opinion.  You can claim that I'm not entitled to my opinion, or that my opinion is not based on sufficient evidence to meet your standards, but it is clear that your standards of what makes YOU as asshole are unreasonably high.  I expect that there is no standard of evidence that you'd agree to accept to accede that you are, in fact, an asshole.  And that's okay.  As much as I would like you to show even the smallest amount of self-reflection and personal improvement, you've also shown that you can't stand any criticism and are automatically defensive and resort to scorched earth attacks.

It's my belief that just about everyone that has interacted with you in places like this now sees that your 'argument' comes out to 'I know you are but what am I'.  Dealing with someone who responds in that way requires infinite patience or dropping it because there is no prospect of changing their mind - and of course it does nothing to deflect the accusation outside of a 3rd grade mentality.  But I think it's really important that you understand that I continue to think you're an asshole, I continue to provide descriptions of what I consider assholish behavior, I continue to show that you act in that manner, and I haven't kicked any dogs in the face (which wouldn't necessarily mean that I'm not right even if it does mean that I'm also an asshole), so it would be another example of you being an asshole if you try to respond by saying something to the effect of 'I've already responded to all your comments' (you haven't), or 'he's already proven that his comments mean nothing because he's a big meanie' (that's an opinion you can have for yourself, but not on behalf of the whole world). 
When I say objectively, I mean 'subjectively'.  When I say literally, I mean 'figuratively'.  
And when I say that you are a horse's ass, I mean that the objective truth is that you are a literal horse's ass.

Zak. this is not a court of law. There is no "burden of proof" on anyone for anything at any time. I'm free to dislike you because of the color of pants you wear, if I so desire. My reasons are, frankly, none of your business. That having been said, I, and others, have repeatedly stated our opinions of you, and why we hold them. You have insisted that you've rebutted them, but you haven't done so to our satisfaction. Well, I can't speak for anyone else, but not mine, certainly.

I know you think you're on some kind of mission here, but it is a fool's errand. Do keep it up, though, I never get tired of watching you flail sputteringly.

Are you prepared to prove he even wears pants, particularly while posting here?

No, you asserted that the claims were wrong. Assertion =/= proof. Again, why are you lying, Zak?

If you believe that an assertion I made in response to your post on the last page is false then you haven't said which one.

For example, I asserted:

Quote
Bullying requires the bully have more power in the situation than who they're interacting with, and everyone here has the same power here: to type.

You haven't addressed it.

Quote
Edit: for fun, here is the comments section of the long-delayed Demon City Kickstarter. Zak challenges several people critical of him to sign affidavits..

Oh look, it's now changed from the lie that I was "insisting" it to now it's just "challenging" them.

You just got caught, changed your wording and are pretending you weren't caught.

p.s. Oh and here you are caught again:

Quote
Mike Evans, has even told people in the comments NOT to sign any legal papers offered by Zak.

No, he doesn't say that at all--he just says he himself is not making the same offer as me, and he said it in the link you provided.

You got caught again, this time by your own link.

And also lied about a bunch of other stuff.

You lied about "tongue shoving" fantasy, you lied and pretended that the things you were complaining about weren't recorded, you lied about me impersonating someone, you lied about me asking for some kind of "rules" in an argument and not following them.

 You're just doing what I already described again: changing the subject from how you lied to the more nebulous territory of namecalling.
