Do you think that bloodlines was, in any way, a sexist game?

    * Criticism of Bloodlines is excessive
    * They need to be critical because some fans are assholes
    * Are they?
    * Yes, why they needed to put a disclaimer against Nazis
    * I found that excessive
    * I know some actual Nazi gamers
    * Nazi gamers suck
    * How do we react to Nazi Gamers?
    * Try to win them over or cast them out?
    * Nazis historically suck

      This is.... a very questionable summary of events.

      The "criticisms of Bloodlines is excessive" seems fairly biased, and is ignoring why a mod intervened.

      jamiemalk came in to make the case that being "too progressive and inclusive," turned people off and cited the "Nazis fuck off," V5 thing as part that, it wasn't used as an example of why being critical is necessary, but as something too heavy handed turning people off.

      Myself and others were making the "we need to be critical," argument to NotEmpathetic. And not based on the grounds that some fans are assholes, but that being critical increases the quality of games for everyone, not just the minorities games made primarily for straight men turn away.

        You should see what a knitting forum is like.

          Some of them less so than others now.

          • As the spouse of a regular poster on Ravelry... that trimmed off the worst of things, but there's plenty of threads that go to dumb places still.

              I'm not sure it was biased since my view was the transition was natural, civil, and informative.
