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.

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. RPG.net moderator | Please do not reply to moderator admonitions via post or PM. 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.

While we pay for service via ISPs, the internet has been a relatively free space where everyone, no matter their income level, is able to connect, access a wealth of information, and express themselves. The Internet has become a major part of our culture as human beings and the notion that ISPs might be able to <b>limit what sites I can access unless I pay them more</b> is utterly sickening. A lot of us are cash strapped as is, and I’d rather not be limited even more by someone else’s greed. Net Neutrality is essential and I hope you guys will understand why it needs to remain.</p> <p>-Morgan</p> <p>P.S.

If you don’t pay, users’ access to your website will be slowed to a crawl - so independent people and small businesses can forget about getting onto that high speed access tier. </p> <p>This means that the American internet is going to be firmly under the control of those who have the most money. You’ll only get to see the content of those who can pay the ISPs to provide access at a reasonable speed. This means that you can expect to see skewed representation of just about everything, with those bigger businesses who can afford to pay ISPs a premium for access deciding what you can and cannot read, view and consume on the internet.</p> <p>This is not something that we have in the UK. Our ISPs compete with each other to provide higher speeds, better services and lower prices, but because there’s a monopoly in the US of a few ISPs who provide services, they can afford to do this to you. You can’t go anywhere else, after all.</p> <p>Everyone in the US needs to sign that petition, call their representatives, write angry letters and do whatever you can to tell your government that this ruling is Not Okay.</p> </blockquote> <p>Maybe you guys are sick of this post but It’s really important to freelance artists and pretty much everyone who uses the internet, so here it is again.  \o0o/</p> </blockquote> <p>trump era is gonna be hell</p> </blockquote> <p>i dont want to pay for my memes.</p> </blockquote> <a class="tumblelog" href="https://tmblr.co/mGxC5ZztcfIaHwc3csAM85g">@wheremyscalesslither</a> <a class="tumblelog" href="https://tmblr.co/mIJ8_wrCXsufezeOd9hyGWQ">@huskyhuddle</a> <a class="tumblelog" href="https://tmblr.co/mRj4qnViTBEI6mJO96LL6FA">@toothless-the-betta-fish</a> <a class="tumblelog" href="https://tmblr.co/mXXRksbHsyCtmHF0Hyw5cmw">@comraderabbit</a> <a class="tumblelog" href="https://tmblr.co/mTZU-Tn0PH1zkSiVUjtBCRQ">@elemental-kiss</a> Guys Im pretty sure you guys have a lot of followers please boost this!</blockquote> <p>so who fucking profits from net neutrality being gone or is it just old people not understanding the internet</p> </blockquote> <p>things are weird when one of toyr favorite artists reblogs a comment chain with your username attached. also tumblr never even told me about the tag</p> <p><br/>anyhow this is really fucking important. the USA us already wntirely run in corproate greed.

My dad was traveling from New York to Long Beach and the passenger seated next to my dad filmed and uploaded a video of him sleeping. He titled the video, “Would You Feel Safe Flying With Bin Laden. Many Sikhs are mistake for Muslims due to the similar appearance. But Sikhs and Muslims are two entirely different and independent religions. No one Sikh, Christian,Muslim, Hindu, Jew, etc. should ever be targeted in such a belittling manner. It is NOT okay to target an individual based on appearance. Guru Nanak Dev Ji preached love and equality to all of mankind. As Sikhs, it is our duty to uphold these values and to support those who have been wronged.

Also please report this video to YouTube to have it removed.
