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.

For me it's just low commedy.

I'll admit it: For me it's a combination of nostalgia and self-validation. I used to have a lot of fun and friendly contacts around that place; this thread helps remind me how bad it's gotten, why it changed and that it's not my fault it did change.

oh...well...It's probably a little bit my fault anyhow.  Still, once it was home and now it's hostile territory that still has some utility for me.

PbP is the usual answer for millions of posts. I think Kiero had over 12 million posts over there. Perfect Organism was really, really prolific in Tangency back in the 2010's (under about three different name changes, IIRC).

Yes, PbP generates a lot of postcount, but I had something north of 50,000 posts not 12 million!

   Looks like the million-something post counts were due to moderators having fun with people's post counts back in the day.

   In other news, the moderators have decided not to make the ban on Goblin Slayer-related posts explicit. Apparently "we still feel that the situation is best dealt with by having a general policy to point to guide people's posts, and mods locking threads that violate the policy and reminding people that it exists."

I honestly only ever check in on tbp these days is for anime recommendations: anything somebody got banned for mentioning has usually turned out to be a decent watch (goblin slayer, shield hero, jobless reincarnation).
