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 message boards have been upgraded. Please log in to your existing account by clicking here. It will ask twice, so that it can properly update your password and login information.

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.

Quote from: Drew
I've bolded the relevant part of your post, just in case you really are confused as to why a site like RPGnet would take you to task over it. You identified a group, then attacked it by claiming it's members were "mentally unstable, physically unattractive, and financially instable -- i.e. subaverage women."

No.  That's not what I said.  You have a reading comprehension problem.

I was theorizing why mentally unstable, physically unattractive, and financially instable -- i.e. subaverage women -- seem to be drawn to gaming.  There is a very real and meaningful difference between what I said and how you are summarizing it.  You seem to be under the greatly mistaken impression that I was identifying women gamers as mentally unstable, physically unattractive, and financially instable.  That is not what I said at all.  I was attempting to explain why I had encountered so many subaverage women in my gaming career.  You can't attack subaverage women by identifying them as subaverage women.

There's nothing in what I said to get offended by, unless of course you can't actually comprehend written English.  Which I honestly think is a huge part of the problem.  I am constantly amazed by people's utter inability to read simple English.

Unless, of course, you consider acknowledging that subaverage women exist is an attack on women as a whole.  Which is exactly how people reacted.  But that's utterly irrational.  Subaverage women must exist, it's necessitated by the existence of average and above average women.

A rational person would agree that the average woman is not mentally unstable, physically unattractive, and financially instable, and that these are negative traits, and thus a woman displaying these traits must be subaverage.

It's really not that hard to comprehend, unless you're a moderator on rpg.net.

Any appeal to rationality by a person who threatens physical violence and degredation is inherently ridiculous. You know what you did, and no amount of half-arsed, self righteous justification will distract from that.

I'm done with this. Enjoy your stay here.

You're pathetic.

Sounds to me like you walked right into being banned.  I can't imagine any reasonably run forum that would put up with someone posing as an "Internet Terrorist" or "Dangerous Internet Person" even if the script had been written by others.

And for that matter, welcome aboard Jackalope.  I don't give a fuck what you've been accused of on other sites; the only thing that will get you banned on this site would be your behaviour here: and stating your opinions is not a bannable offense.  Don't disrupt the functionality of the forums, don't commit any felonies or engage in harassment of other members, and you'll be fine.
And while you're extending such a warm welcome to a turd the size of Jackalope, you can extend a farewell to me and delete my account here.

I'm not normally into the translation business, but let me put the above into English.

WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

I get it, Jackalope's a dick, but as long as he doesn't bring the forum to a screeching halt with his douchebaggery, who really cares?

There was a reference in one of the discussion threads that reminded me I needed to check up on this place.

Well I lurked here for a while about 6-12 months ago, I forget exactly.

I didn't save the link at the time, which was probably a mistake.  Whilst my spare time is at a premium, the general forum makes a refreshing change from "the other place". and there is useful gaming info here as well.

Remind me again, did you leave RPGnet after the Poison'd debacle?

Jackalope is getting a warm welcome?

Well fuck, what's a cold welcome around here?

Or did O'Borg mean "warm" as in "flaming"? Is there anyone who, having responded to Jackalope at all, has not abused him?

Is this like how Obama has to go to his old pastor's house and brass it up with an AK-47 before anyone will believe he thinks the guy said some stupid stuff?

To heck with that, I have more of a problem of the old vocal (or is it postal on a fourm?), exit as some kind of moral stand, as I don't see any other reason to do so. I mean it's not like some dumbass posting stupid shit online is the evil that happens when good men do nothing.

It's slacktivism, baby! O'Borg probably forwards emails about oppression in Tibet, and joins Facebook groups protesting the Iraq war.

Jackalope appears to be a cocksmock. But no doubt he will soon toke up again once more, calm down a lot, laugh and shake his head at himself, then settle down to not gaming at all and just dropping sarcastic comments in threads about gaming, apparently SOP for heavy tokers.

Nope. I could have quite easily pulled your argument apart by highlighting your confusion between subjective experience and objective reality as the foundtion of a theoretical posture based largely on frothing misogyny.

I really couldn't be bothered though. You're a fucking internet stalker who's beyond reason.
