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.

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?

Don't bother asking him.  He is a known liar and backstabber that hates this site.

To answer your question yes the RPG.net did in fact shut down the topic.  This site, however, is NOT a hate site.  RPGPundit had banned more than enough racists to prove this site is in fact NOT a hate site.  Seriously just ask RPGPundit himself.

HappyDaze does hold divergent views and sometimes deliberately trolls people, but liar and hating this site are false characterizations. Look at the threads about Pundit's videos if you want evidence of the latter.

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.

Sure, because I'm GOD, THE ETERNAL SAVIOUR, so, if I act decently I'll self-save ::)

(Note: I was going to post this in reply to jhkim in the red list thread, but as I reviewed the thread before hitting the post button I think it belongs here more.)

I am a little curious about discussion of this list in other places - I recently saw a Facebook friend briefly mention it, but he said to ignore it. Does anyone have any links to discussion threads?

In principle, I'd think that a list like this could be useful for activists on both sides, letting them know who to buy from and who to avoid.
A few people at TBP wanted to start a discussion of the list at TBP, but that was shut down by the mods. They could have tried to justify the prohibition as a means to limit cross forum drama, but that would’ve been an insufficiently Woke reason, so instead they called this site a “hate site”. (If TheRPGsite is in their demented minds akin to a neo-nazi site it would make sense that they’ll eventually ban their members who are also posting here.)

Posters at TBP can’t link to this site, and can’t discuss the list, but we’re told “… the mods have decided if you want to talk about companies that are doing well on some issues (or doing poorly), feel free.” I haven’t seen such a discussion develop yet at TBP. I think that’s in part because it would be far easier for some of the users to have had a thread to function as Two Minutes of Hate against the list here, but the TBP mods have precluded that course. Making up their own list would require more work and effort than just a thread attacking this list.

In seeing the list created here a lot of sharp elbows have been thrown back and forth that wouldn’t be allowed at TBP. I think users at TBP would be reluctant to start working on their own list because they’d also be at risk catching bans for being out of sync with whichever direction the Woke winds were blowing any given day, including setting themselves up for catching bans months (years maybe) after the discussion was finished by a TBP mod going through users past posts.

Some companies have been getting shifted between the different categories on this list. People here have had their arguments and moved on. In a Woke environment if you find yourself on the losing end of an argument you’ll be expected to prostrate yourself, apologize and hope for forgiveness. But like in 1984 you’ll never be truly forgiven, you’re just being let go for a little while until the Party/Woke decide to finish you. Even a few years ago I think TBP could have had some discussion along these lines, but it’s been getting more and more restrictive over there as their users get more conditioned to ever tightening boundaries.

See, that's what I really find refreshing about this site. I have seen so much within the past couple of days that would have got loads of people banned from big purp. But here, sure blood pressure rises, but man it's been such a thought provoking discussion. And pundit rarely bans anyone.

I remember back in the day when there used to be good discussions on TBP.....but they're the epitome of eating their young and being destroyed from within.

I still wonder what got you turfed from TBP. :) But yeah. There's a line I like to use:

"This is Liberty Hall. You can spit on the mat, and call the cat a bastard."

Yeah, I like a spirited argument - and there are plenty of those here. Though Pundit has banned two people in the past month - SonTodoGatos and Rhedyn - both with no warning. So it is more open than other sites for sure, but there are still limits on expression.

I know exactly. So my thirty day ban was because there was a "hurray there are gays in Waterdeep: Dragon Heist, we're represented" thread. I replied, seriously without rancor, that the good thing was I as the DM could change the sex/race of whatever I wanted cause TSR/WotC has told us that for ages. Make the game your own. And that pissed off a mod that said I was suspect as I hadn't posted in a while and I summarily was given the thirty day ban saying I was straightwashing them. I was pissed but got over it. And here's what really got me banned. I put in my avatar, after my ban, that I was "The Straightwasher". Someone noticed, told on me and permabanned due to rule 0, not a good fit.
