Turns out there is an easy way to figure out who's ok with nazi iconography.

As an admin, go to this URI /admin/custom_emojis?utf8=✓&shortcode=pepe&by_domain= and find who belongs in your block list

that thread about DARVO 

I said earlier that I'd talk about this, so.

It's important to know what DARVO is and how it's used as a tool to bully people into silence/complicity in bad behavior.

DARVO is an acronym. It stands for:

Reverse Victim and Offender.

It is a technique that is used by abusive people to cover up their abuse.

It is incredibly common. Knowing how to spot it is key.

DARVO, end of thread, an offer 

If you need someone to talk to who is not going to judge you for your behavior, past or present, but who will instead try to help you untangle your thoughts and get to a point where you are safe and healthy and can begin addressing what's wrong, please feel free to drop me a line. I can't promise a lot of support, but I will do what I can, even if it's simply listening.

discussion of antisemitism 

I spent way too long looking into the question of "is the lich's phylactery antisemitism?"

And then a while longer: "was it malicious, who did it, and when?"

The answers turned out to be "sorta maybe" and "no; not Gygax; somewhere around 2e, but then again with 5e and that was worse."

re: fediblock 


we have not reported the user, we have not talk to the admin.
We have payed attention to this instance behavior in the past though.

I don't believe that art alley's admin(s) is engaging with other admin in good faith.

Since it is the second time that they seem to engage in bad faith, they eat a block.

The # fediblock is because I am fed up with bad moderation that make the fedi a hostile place.

I'm a white hetero cis-male that lives in the USA.

Using Emacs, I write software, TTRPG session reports, short essays, documentation, open letters, and sometimes a bit of poetry.

Most of the non-software writing is on [my personal writing]( I also tend to charter up working groups in the FOSS [Samvera]( project.

Hi everyone, this is my !

While I do like and play boardgames (recent favorite: ), I'm

to help with my painting laziness!

I'd been either too depressed or too busy to notice or crow about it, but there's a second WFRP book out that I got to write for. The Careers in Appendix I are all mine! Quite pleased with the halfling Badger Rider if I do say so myself.

The rest of the book is also really good, packed with lore, cool weapons like specialised dwarf/elf firearms, and generally just expands on the Empire a whole load.

So yeah, I'm a bit pleased with that.

Hi folks! Here is my

I've been into the tabletop war gaming hobby a year now but I'd always wanted to get more into it ever since I was a kid (so I've wanted this for 30 years)!

I paint and play Warcry, AoS, SoBH, Frostgrave, HeroQuest, DnD, and ...Hero Kids! I'm very interested in SAGA and I'm super excited for Ravenfeast. I also dabble in terrain building.

I've been looking for a place to post the progress of my projects and get inspired. Super excited to be here! Yay!
