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.
NOTICE: Some online security services are reporting that information for a limited number of users from this site is for sale on the "dark web." As of right now, there is no direct evidence of this, but change your password just to be safe.
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.

Even at her age, she'd have you crying like a baby, little pirate.
Stay mad, pussy.
Keep trying to make me mad, little pirate. You're doing a terrible job of it so far.

So at TBP they shut down discussion of “The list?” and this is a hate site?
Your statement should have ended with a period, not a question mark.
In your opinion what qualifies this as a hate site?
I didn't say it was. However, there is no question that RPGNet views it as such.
Next time be more specific.

What TBP qualifies as hate equates to anything they disagree with.

Pretty much.

Although they shuffle back and forth on allowing general attacks. Which I find odd -- the only thing that springs to mind immediately is that they don't want to get caught in some kind of legal crossfire if someone goes off their nut and tries to snipe some folks a la the Republican House softball game. I'm not married to that theory, but considering some of the stances they've taken, I find it curious that they jump on general attacks -- regardless of target -- so virulently.

That's what cock-sucking Marxists do.
Fred: Hey Bob, I don't think you want to get involved with her.   She claims to be a Marxist.
Bob: I know, but Shark said she's a cock-sucking Marxist.
Fred: Oh?  Well carry on then!

Thanks! I wouldn't recommend a Marxist girlfriend though. Probably more trouble than it's worth.

I take it as more of an attempt to appear that they aren't biased when clearly they are.

Look at the Trump ban the instituted and the reasoning saying that "its not open season on conservatives." Not a conservative but a libertarian but there is no way I would post there. Its clearly meant for the left side of the political spectrum. That's fine if that is the way they want it but don't try and claim to be not out banning people who disagree there TBP.

I haven't been a regular poster there in a long time, but their uneven application of the group attack rules is one of the big reasons I left.  They may have gotten more consistent since then, but they also started outright allowing attacks on groups like ICE/border patrol beyond just fair criticism.

So a person acts decently for their whole life because they are expecting a divine reward and that makes them a piece of shit?

That makes no sense at all.  Who would even think like that?

Because I condivide Cohle's belief that you should be decent irrespectively of a "reward" of any kind.

Why should you choose to be decent at all?

Quote
Maybe this is because it is a topic that touches me closely. 13 years in a Catholic school didn't made me a Catholic (or a religious person in general), but they left me with the idea that this Jesus guy was a pretty cool dude, worth listening to. I also like Saint Augustine as a philosopher.

My beliefs? I do believe in a "soul" inhabiting the body and in free will, nothing else. I think that the idea of a "collective unconscious" is pretty cool and I hope that something like that does exists for real. But I also believe that when we die our soul will dissolve back into the collective unconscious the way the atoms and the molecules of our body will return to the physical world. The end.

So, when I try to be "decent" it is because I want to. I don't look for "divine rewards" or even social acceptance. And I'm not seeing "decency" in Wokeness at all. If I'll ever publish something "Woke" is because I came to believe in it. But be assured that racism in my current CoC campaign is a real thing, whereas orcs will not be "niggers" in a future D&D campaign: my choice, my consequences.

If you act decently because you want to act decently then that puts you in the same piece of shit category as someone who acts decently because they want to go to heaven.

You just tell yourself a different story.
