    The split already exists. You can block GD and not have to see it.

    Are you are complaining about stuff posted outside GD, or just that people with viewpoints you despise are discussing games?

    I find it a bit surprising to see even a few people suggest that it's OK to lock the RPG Codex and just migrate to the Watch if they remove our freedoms. The implication that the only difference between the Codex and Watch (or any other gaming forum) is that you can say naughty words and go unpunished here is a bit sad and shows how maybe some people haven't really interacted with the gaming component of this site. It certainly goes much deeper than that. Freedom to express yourself using vulgarities is all well and good, I do it myself as well, but even if you censor that part of this site it would still stand unique among all the other gaming sites. Even the Watch can't claim to have the in-depth conversations that we have on video games across multiple generations, platforms and genres.

    A few people doesn't mean majority lol. Most people don't even know about this thread. But yeah,we do have a lot of people that come here for the political garbage and not for the game aspect.

    Personally, I see it as a free speech website for people with good taste and real in-depth non-mainstream interests in life. Having a vivid interest in good RPGs is a filter. It typically correlates with other interests like certain films, music, etc. And also certain political views.

    You have to be truly slow on the uptake to like RPGs and not see the damage inflicted on them by "the current year", the console trend, the corporate agendas, the censorship, the cancelling, the lying bottom-feeder journos, the woke who infiltrate companies with boards and taskforces, and so on. Anyone who values good RPGs must also be deeply suspicious of woke impulses in other cultural domains.

    This is a complete misdiagnosis. The woke RPG websites are the leftie Anglo echo chambers with a very narrow focus. The Codex has an international audience which represents the distribution of opinions among youngish men in broader areas where people like RPGs. Sites like RPGWatch and ResetEra have a mainly Anglo audience and aggressively censor other people. Now, where are good RPGs popular - are they popular in Anglo US and the UK, or are they popular in the likes of Poland and Russia? What do you think are the prevalent opinions on wokeness in Poland and Russia - or even among white Americans? RPGCodex is the actual international website where everyone can share their views, while RPGWatch and such are parochial echo chambers.

    So the solution is to create a different echo chamber in which a bunch of cucks jerks each other off over their strong opinions on how removing Miranda´s ass shots from ME remake is a decisive blow against patriarchy? Yeah, no thanks. You think that Retardera has a higher "diversity of viewpoints" than Codex does? LMAO.

    I wouldn’t really overestimate the current echo chamber on the Codex either. We have a huge number of cucks posting here (Morgoth being their uncrowned king), who are free to post whatever they want and many of them have post counts in thousands (how many posts could an average Codexer make on Retardera btw, I would say between 1 and 3 depending on how fast their mods are). These people could influence the general discourse on the forum much more, they don’t because they are cowards and cucks, not because a group of evil racists would shout them down or get them banned.


    Dunno man, the first time I heard about the Codex was in circa 2008 on TTLG. There was this “proto-cuck” there (I am sure he grew up to be a strong BLM supporter and properly self-hating white boi since then) who at one point tried to insult people by responding to their posts with “What is your RPG Codex handle?”


    Obviously I wasn’t around here back then but the reputation of the Codex seemed to be basically the same 13 years ago as it is now.

    On Codex I can use every word imaginable to describe Bethesda, Toddler, Hines and what they did to Fallout. I cannot do that anywhere else.

    I love how all the alts come out for threads like this.

    If your arguments are so good, you shouldn't need to spam them across multiple accounts.

    Can you blame them? So there are like, what, 3 places left on the internet you can go where the fucking thought police are not breathing down your neck and looking for CrimeThink™. And in typically lefty fashion your proposed solution, which I'm not going to repost the entirety of here is--- "Welllllll, a -little- moderation is ok on topics A, F, G, T, and Z." Because those are naughty. But that's it... Return a year later and now Topics A-M, and P through Z are thoroughly banned / verboten. Do you know how I know this? Because I have eyes and the ability to watch the trajectory of time and historical precedent.

    This 'compromise' approach is how radical leftists have infiltrated every single organization in the West over the past 6 decades. You always come with an Olive Branch in one hand until you reach a critical mass of other shitlibs and wokesters. Then you terraform the place in short order turning it into Tumblr/Reddit v2.0. Fuck that noise. I've seen it happen too many times and watched it collapse other places both virtual and physical. It is old & tired and we are VERY hip to the methods now. Take your Olive Branch and find a dark place for it.

    You want to start the Lefty terraforming of one of the last places left where you can hear unmoderated, unfiltered, and truly free speech. Because Muh Modern Day Sensibilities & Feelings. Nah son... as was stated above 99.5% of the internet already works like that. Find another home. Either shut the entire thing down and cave to the Woke Agenda or find a -creative- way to sidestep it as was offered earlier. You can easily move this entire domain, its public contact / holder, etc. into any number of countries & people's names were the Thought Police will have great difficulty attempting to destroy one of the last good and pure things left on the interwebz. Act Accordingly...

    90% of all the sjws in here are kwans,the rest of kwans are just some limp dicked liberal muh taxes and muh constitution retards. The amount of quality kwan posters compared to the retards,is within the acceptable loss.

    Why do some people here not realise that there is no such thing as restrained moderation. People out there are gonna destroy your life just for saying the n word. They don't care if Codex bans the most vile spammers. They see even the mildest case of racism and whole Codex bears the collective guilt. Solution is to transfer the ownership somewhere where it is legally doable.

    People who think that we can tweak this and that rule to make it work are dreamers at best.

    Codex is literally the last woke-free place in the web. We are not woke, we are sleeping and having a beautiful dream about what is RPG.

    I think the bigger issue is that even if the Codex did manage to pull off a restrained moderation policy, as near impossible as that is, the line for what is acceptable under Aus defamation rules would constantly shift.

    The moderation would become harsher and harsher out of the simple necessity of skirting the laws.

  23. There is no such thing as "restrained and unbiased moderation". You can see it with Rogue's "icky people" comment that she spent several days thinking about, apparently. What is this universally-accepted without discussion meaning of "icky people" that should just be banned outright? Completely different things to different people. If you ask me, DoublePenetration and BurningBridges are "icky people" who should be banned for outright demanding the purge of everyone who disagrees with current_year and their fee-fees. So, you had better hope that whatever mod is evaluating your comment for wrongthink happens to have similar political beliefs to yourself. Oh wait, they probably won't, given that the whole point of this exercise is to be in lockstep with Australian censorship laws.

    Expect a slew of wokinista mods vomiting mentally ill accusations and flagrantly abusing their mod powers to the applause of lefturds, as normal people leave this place. The Nudex is an army of pink-haired demon clowns raging about drumpf and qanon, forever.

    I agree,instead we should fine a way for DU to not end up in a smaller gulag than australia. After all,this whole discussion is because he is afraid,not about ideological garbage.

    Regards of the context, it's true that there are people on this site who do nothing but start drama and cause headaches for moderation rather than contributing to the community. I don't understand why they weren't banned in the first place.
