America, Children, and Community: Search l 6790 6:21 PM e forum.rpg.net Forum Administrator said: Today 09:39 AM New Ban: Do Not Post In Support of Trump or his Administration The following policy announcement is the result of over a year of serious debate by the moderation team. The decision is as close to unanimous as we ever get. It will not be the subject of further debate. We have fully considered the downsides and ultimately decided we have to stay true to our values. We will not pretend that evil isn't evil, or that it becomes a legitimate difference of political opinion if you put a suit and tie on it. We are banning support of Donald Trump or his administration on the RPGnet forums. This is because his public comments, policies, and the makeup of his administration are so wholly incompatible with our values that formal political neutrality is not tenable. We can be welcoming to (for example) persons of every ethnicity who want to talk about games, or we can allow support for open white supremacy. Not both. Below will be an outline of the policy and a very incomplete set of citations We have a community here that we've built carefully over time, and support for elected hate groups aren't welcome here. We can't save the world, but we can protect and care for the small patch that is this board Policy outline: 1. We are banning support of the administration of President Trump. You can still post on RPG.net even if 8:52 0 LTE ▲ 습 44% a https://forum.rpg.net/showthread.ph囮 Originally Posted by Codename: Omega This is exactly the problem IMO - the problem I find with a lot of people who call themselves progressives" online is that they seem to think the only strategy worth doing is to "ostracise people people whose values are antithetical to their own" rather than discuss it with them or accept that some people just have different views. Sure, in some cases there's not much hope for changing anyone's minds, but to default at "ostracise, humiliate, shun and berate" is not a good approach IMO. Moderator Text: No. You know what? Fuck that noise. Ethnic cleansing is not "different views." Racism is not "different views." White nationalism is not "different views." Dogwhistling that attacks against your political enemies will continue if the media doesn't stop saying things you don't like is not "different views." Putting children in cages is not "different views This is not an argument over tax rates or the proper role of government in education. This is an argument about who will be allowed to exist in America Get the fuck out of this thread. Don't post here again.

Please direct appeals to the admins You can read the RPG.net rules and guidelines here and a handy FAQ here Eisenhower got elected President for overseeing a war that was ALL ABOUT killing Nazis. We should return to those days. Cessna adobsonartworks: As someone who’s reported alt-right harassment and rhetoric on various social media sites and been told “there’s nothing here that violates our TOS,” seeing what RPGnet is doing is a welcome breath of fresh air. Please, more social media sites need to do this.

Fail, Finish Line, and Goals: So thankful for growth. I no longer force things. What flows, flows. What crashes, crashes. What's meant to be will be. Tim Karsliyev- Daily Dose (Consistency) Until you have tried something new for a period of time and in a consistent manner, you can't decide if it works or not. How do you measure effectiveness if you're not consistent? . I typically give six months before judging it as a success or failure. It's often minor tweaking instead of major overhauls that make the difference. ➖ (Consistency Creates Accountability) I put a priority on making time for and being available. I work to establish consistent and recurring attention. . The simple fact that there should be a set time where we analyze progress is often the catalyst that moves an initiative along to a successful end. ➖ (Consistency Establishes Your Reputation) Growth requires a track record of consistency. You can't establish a track record if you are constantly shifting gears or trying new tactics. Many efforts fail before they get to the finish line, but not because the tactic was flawed or goals weren't clear. The problem is often that the we simply didn't stay the course. ➖ (Consistency Makes You Relevant) All too often I see people changing like the weather only to end it before it gains traction. Stay true to who you are, be consistent... because in business, relationship, and friendship consistency is key for your relevancy. ➖ The only way you grow is if you stay consistent to who you are, what you say, and what you do. All of that compiled together shows maturity. . The quote above is not that you can be careless about the outcome of your life but it's more related to how you do life. 📷 @timkarsliyev CEO of Daily Dose

Ass, England, and Family: THEPAKISTANIMARTHASTEWART Silsila yeh Fuckboy ka Soooo lets talk about SLB's Devdas, we've all seen it. The amazing actors, the amazing sets, the gorgeous costumes and extravagant everything. Now just like I've ruined kuch kuch hota hai. I'm going to ruin Devdas for you. Let's forget about the fact Devdas isn't a romantic tragedy about star crossed lovers. It reeks with misogyny and patriarchy if you dissect the dialogues and screenplay from start to finish. But let's talk about the f*ckboy Devdas. I used to think he's a tragic romantic hero. Seeing him now, he's a violent, emotionally and physically abusive, obsessive, controlling, misogynistic, a coward and a straight up assh*le. He and Paro are childhood friends who are torn apart when his father sends him away to law school in England. He comes back years later and visits Paro and insists on seeing her before his mother. This mofo from this moment for the next scenes of the movie is leading her on, they have "romantic" scenes and such, he even goes as far to promise he will marry her to his grandmother etc etc. Now his assh*le family rejects the idea of marriage when Paro's mom mentions it. They reject it because they believe them to be over lower class and humiliates her. Now dumbass Paro ends up showing up to Devdas's room in the middle of the night still believing in him and that he will stay true to his love and such. Devdas's father catches the two, and not once does he stand up for Paro, is too cowardly to make a stand for the girl he "loves". And leaves the city. This mofo goes to a courtesan (chandramukhi), where Chandramukhi begins to admire him and he insults her for her being a "tawaif" and a second class person. Like who the hell are you Devdas 🙄. He sends a letter to Paro telling her to forget him, their love wasn't real (coward ass mofo). He comes back realizing his mistake, and she is getting married to a rich widower arranged my her mother who is richer than Devdas's family as a clapbackfor their insults. This mofo actually has the audacity to ask her to elope, when HEEE didn't stand up for her in front of his parents, when HE runs away and when HE SENDS her a letter ending their relationship. He had the audacity (continued in comments)
