The best of the litter was Michael informing Ochoin he is right to lament the lack of diversity in various social structures, but that HE ought not to do that on TWW.

One could call that “pulling a Bill.” Perhaps TWW should create a doghouse, too.


Woof.

Woof.



But our Wargamer guest does make a good point.

That was a bit of capricious pomposity from Michael, whether you like to admit it or not.
And that thread is pointless, and on TMP you would berate it as 'doghouse bait', and it is hard to see how Michael isn't doing the same. He's deliberately started what he knows will end up as a potentially antagonistic thread all in the name of stimulating contentious 'debate'. If such topics are to avoid argument all that leaves is people to tow the party line - in which case, what's the point in starting it?
It is, all too clearly, 'pulling a Bill'.

Fair's fair.

Hey Murricans! This Friday is the 50th anniversary of the My Lai Massacre. Got anything planned? A parade maybe? Ernie Medina and Rusty Calley are still alive. Rusty is a good ole boy in Georgia these days but he originally hailed from Florida so he’d probably really dig an invite to Mar-a- Lago. How about the Prez pinning some medals on ‘em? Medal of Honour or Medal of Freedom. I reckon their time has come.

I do not consider wondering why gaming is exclusive to be drivel.
Especially as I run a site that I want very much to be inclusive.
If there is some reason why non white males do not game, as a business and an inclusive member of society I would like to know.
Talking about gaming and the people that game is very much about gaming, posting stories about child rape, who your favourite pop singer is or how the other day you were outside a school perving at the school children is not about gaming and really not comparable to wondering why certain demographics do not game.
