My goodness!  Around 80% of the posts were removed.


And it seems you, RWH, are gone. I'll miss your posts. I was just reading them as they slipped off into the aether. Another sane, knowledgable person got the ban hammer.


brucewang is also gone. -Ban Hammered!

Oh hey, look at this:

This is my "not surprised" look.

Pay attention to the progression in his messages. He goes from:
Quote
The KKK is horrible and I don’t support them in any way, but can we admit that their internal title names are cool, e.g. “Grand Wizard”?

to:

Quote
If you make the actual KKK the only place where you can acknowledge the coolness of D&D terms, then you’ll just push people into the KKK.

In a few steps.

Really? Are you sure it's not just you going with the worst possible interpretation?
What's the best possible interpretation Lana? He's concerned this will happen?


"What did you roll?"
"14-88"
"Zounds, Harvey-you levelled up to a white guy!"
(Everybody)"LEVEL UP ALL, ZIEG KEKISTAN!"


BADD (Bothered About Dungeons and Dragons) were right, D&D is a gateway drug!!! Just not to Satanism and sex parties.

Since the old thread is basically dead and buried, I decided to start a new one.

Apologies, jumping the gun there.

And before someone comes in and says that he's not promoting the KKK I wish to ask: Is KKK the only place that acknowledges the "coolness of DnD terms?" Because I know for a fact that not only is that claim not true it is no different from the claims in his original manifesto. If you read between the lines you see that his messages are incomprehensible non-sequitors unless you look at them with the assumption that the subtext is "KKK is cool." Same as his "scientific manifesto" that only makes sense if his point is to claim that women are bad at tech jobs and it's their own fault.



Really? Are you sure it's not just you going with the worst possible interpretation?

You know what thing (of many) I use as a sign that an argument is bullshit?  The unironic use of the term "virtue signaling."
