    Probably not the best time to attempt a something awful writer application DU.

    Not to worry, good luck with it.

    Is anyone really surprised? When one of their own interacts with the normie world that is hyper-inflated with bullshit?

    Atleast he's not fuckin' Randy Pitchford, who gets away with it because he owns property.

    Being completely honest here, regardless of what MCA did or didn't do, it's surprising to see that Codex remains absolutely adamant in not giving a single fuck to anything or anyone, to the point of posting an editorial like this on its homepage. In a twisted way, it shows the integrity of the site's identity. It's astonishing, really.

    I can respect that. :salute:

    Not a great idea to post this as news, will make it even easier for resetera types to paint the codex as an extremist fringe board and thus easy to ignore.

    It's a tragedy how there seems to be no place where the allegations against Chris (that have been bottom of the barrel stuff at best imo) can be discussed in a sane manner. It's either wading through shitposts here or getting censored at Reddit or other boards. This is why we can't have nice things and why Chris is a tragic victim of circumstances who is truly and completely fucked (and not in pleasant way referred to in news post).

    We have more tranny folk here than they do thus we are more inclusive. Frankly they just aren't progressive enough.

    If you care what resetera has to say, you are in the wrong location. RPGCodex will not disvow MCA for not being gay, we know it's hard and will require a lot of work and understanding from both parties. But, we are strong and we stand together. We understand we all make mistakes and some of those mistakes are larger, the most important thing is to learn from them. Which is why Codex should divert it's donation income to get one of those gay-to-straight bible camps to do a reverse uno for us and straight-to-gay Tom of Finland camp for MCA. Surely if they can make a person straight, they can do the reverse, right?

    Personally I blame the soylent for making him straight.

    What known hypocrites, thought-policers and non-gamers (seriously, these people don't buy and play games, they just like to use them for their agendas) have to say about... well, anything (including this board of ours), should not be of any relevance to any gamer.

    Back in the day, the codex had tranny porn star sma, better known as miranda meadows, and the tranny with the guns and the Unabomber fascination (no foolin'). Those were trannies you could respect.

    No idea, bout the current stock of trannies, but back then, that seemed pretty progressive. But thsts whats great about the codex (other than nihilistic newsposts like this) - its where nazis and transsexual furries congregate. Put that in your inclusivity pipe and smoke it.

    Who cares what Retardera people say? They act in bad faith. They’ve already made up their mind about Chris Avellone, the Codex and identity politics in general. They want video games to embody their own personal political viewpoints and anyone who expresses different opinions on their forum gets banned.

    They are a SJW version of RaptureReady.

    Completely unrelated, but I want to say that Metatron's YT content is pretty good. Keep up the good work, fratello. :salute:

    The only place where those allegations should be discussed is the court of law.

    Sanity and common sense is the "extremist fringe" those days. Welcome to the clown world.

    The accusers would never want to do it in a court of law, because two adults drinking together is not a crime. At least not yet.

    Exactly, if the argument boils down to "person X is an asshole" a normal human being would just shrug their shoulders and carry on with their own life.

    oh boi. I was away from the internet for a few days and I find this bombshell after my return. I have to reorient the way I'm thinking about the world


    but srsly, is there any credible data about this thing? The devs (Techland, Paradox) seem awfully eager to drop MCA from their projects...

    That's hardly the problem. Companies have always tried to avoid anything that could damage their image.

    OK, maybe more today than usual, but the real problem is the things that have come to be seen as damaging these days.

    Essentially anything is a problem if you find somebody to cry about it. Which is not only retarded, it's actually extremely dangerous.
