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.

The bizarre Project Veritas vs New York Times feud
« on: November 13, 2021, 12:31:51 AM »
Let's see if I can sum this up:
-Project Veritas is currently in the process of suing New York times for defamation
-Project Veritas obtained a stolen or lost diary, allegedly revealing bad things about the Biden family, but can’t verify if it’s real, so they don’t publish it. They give it to law enforcement.
-Project Veritas gets raided by the FBI, apparently because they fear that PV has info from the diary, indicating that it’s almost certainly real
-New York Times then publishes info seemingly obtained in that raid, including information about discussions between lawyers and their clients. All of this sounds like it is decidedly illegal and banana-republic-style corrupt.
-The New York Times article criticizes Project Veritas for spying, which, even if true, is one of the most hilariously tone deaf and ironic things I have ever heard.
