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.

You left out the best part. The mods are giving out bans for being critical of Satine. Because, literally, they feel it’s wrong to hold women accountable for their actions. Yes, they outright said that!

Whose Satine and who was critical towards her?

Quote
You are only someone whose life and actions are calculated so to please an external entity - be it God, social consensus or anything else - hoping for recognition and a reward.

And for this reason you remain a piece of shit.

Difference is God is Absolute, while social consensus is not... Submitting to external entity in case of God is wise move, and metaphysically sound whether you have "internal values" that disagree with him or not at all (whatever "internal values" would be, I'd rather say internalised).
Therefore in rules of Absolution - contrition due to fear of social scorn is not enough, while contrition due to fear of God wrath is (though imperfect compared to divine love).

That's because well God and social consensus are not really the same.

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

The point is... whole decency thing is then based onto... well nothing specific. All wishy-washy. And that's how we end with wokeism judging people harshly based on their empathy (which is type of biological perception that is unequally distributed among mankind).


Quote
So, when I try to be "decent" it is because I want to.

But that just means you like things society considers decent. Different people want different things like burning down kindergartens and based on "I want to" you kinda lack good argument to stop them.



"Never compromise. Not even in the face of Armageddon.”

"And I will strike down upon thee
With great vengeance and furious anger"

You forget "responsibility". Once you ditch the chase for external values (and so you can't use the classic "God made me do it! Jodie Foster made me do it!" defence) you alone are responsible of your actions. And responsibility means acceptance of consequences. If you burn down kindergartens, "I want to" will not cut it: you will be impaled and burned. Not every self-regulating value in the society stems from aberrant forms of Social Justice.
For every idiot who denounces Ayn Rand as "intellectualism" there is an excellent DM who creates a "Bioshock" adventure.

On Police Killings

We recognize that the police killing minorities, the mentally ill, children, and others is an abominable indictment of our society. Such incidents are worthy of being discussed here on RPGnet. However, the boundaries of allowable discourse are necessarily narrow. That these killings happen frequently enough that we need a specific policy to address them is appalling.

When discussing a police killing, please observe the following guidelines:
Limit discussion to one killing per thread, unless they are closely related (multiple killings in close succession by the same police department, for example). Each killing is a tragedy that deserves consideration on its own, and we do not want any sort of 'Police Killing Megathread' to form.
"Threads about police killings are automatically🚦A-Game threads, even if we have not had a chance to label them as such.
In these threads, defenses of the police, or justifications for a killing are not permitted, and will result in lengthy bans.
Discussion of needed police reforms should be spun off into their own threads.
Because, at the end of the day there isn't a lot that can be discussed, beyond how terrible the latest killing was, threads on police killings will be locked when we judge that the discussion has run its course.
This is necessary to avoid the thread becoming a 'megathread' or drifting off topic once people have run out of things to say about the killing. Megathreads can also be attractive nuisances, drawing people to RPGnet just to post in such threads, and we do not want to have to moderate self-perpetuating sources of misery.
If new information about the killing comes to light, such as a police officer being indicted, you may report the locked thread (please include the new information in the report), and we will consider opening it for more discussion.
If a long period of time has elapsed between the original thread and new information, it is permissible to create a new thread, as the old thread may be hard to find. The new thread will be locked after discussion of the new information has run its course, as above."

   The policy for discussing police killings.... How can anyone discuss anything if there is NO ALLOWANCE for discussing it from the police officer's perspective?  That is not a discussion, that is a lynch mob.

And technically, it violates their policy on group attacks, as it makes it impossible to form any cogent discussion other than 'ACAB'.

But then that would require them to admit that not 'all cops are bastards', and sometimes the shoot IS good, or at least justified.
