This is why, as a comic loving, SF loving, RPG playing nerd, I consider myself to be the Fandom Stranger....
What kind of crap glass was used in the windows of Wayne Manor (post-Crisis) that an animal with a mass of less than 27 grams (i.e. weighs less than an ounce) could break through it?

I love a spirited and honest debate. I love having my philosophies, ethics, and opinions challenged. I really, truly do. But, my god, not only do so many people not know how to argue these days, too many of them will instantly rush to censorship and censure when they find their opinions challenged at all.
That's why i miss them having Debate Class/Political Sciences in Schools.There,you learned how to honestly talk to someone whose opinions/belief's were different than yourself.It made all of us in the class(yes,even the titular Jock) realize that everyone had a right to their opinions/belief's and to "Agree to Disagree". That's also another reason i love this site(i haven't been to RA in so long,it's not even funny),as we can have civilized conversation's 'bout this stuff without acting like a Spoiled Child at a Grocery Store....

I don't want to have to constantly updating folks as to the changes RPG.net makes, but I feel this is relevant to make:

As an update to the aforementioned rules, RPG.net has updated their policy again regarding ICE, the Border Patrol and Illegal Immigration.

It is as follows:

There's a new policy announcement in Trouble Tickets regarding GAs on the Immigration and Customs Enforcement department (ICE); specifically, fuck ICE, fuck anybody who doesn't fuck ICE, fuck anybody who doesn't put lights in his window and stay up all night fucking ICE. Border Patrol too, while we're at it.

https://forum.rpg.net/showthread.php?83 ... st21953863
After consultation between the staff, we've realized a strong majority of us are no longer willing to mod group attacks against Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). This is not an open license for revenge porn or personal attacks on specific posters or the like, but we aren't going to pretend any more that they're within the bounds of civility, or that they deserve to be treated as if they were. If you don't understand the basis for this policy, read the news. If you have read the news and still think we need to clarify why we've done this, please find a qualified professional to administer a Voight-Kampff examination at your earliest opportunity.

In conclusion: If you support ICE at this point, you would have called the Gestapo on the people surreptitiously moving into your neighbor's attic and huffed that you were only following the law.

So if you post on RPG.net, regardless of your feelings on the matter, please be aware of this change.

I've moved all of discussion regarding the current border policies to this thread. If you wish to share your thoughts on that topic, please go here. I don't want this topic to become that topic.
