How Gygax Lost Control of TSR and D&D

Nephandus Re:When going into business with Friends (183 comments)

Ah, the shrinks.. They said I was brilliant and on the best track to a better life possible then asked why I was there. Well, not counting the campus sleaze-bag with busty intern who thought I should emulate him to pick up women... Unsurprisingly, this doesn't change my history or the general reality of families. Seek help yourself, you're delusional, probably violently so. It's normal sadly.

How Gygax Lost Control of TSR and D&D

Nephandus Re:When going into business with Friends (183 comments)

Oh, someone's a freak but not who you seem to think. I don't know many people that can honestly say that "care and protection" exemplifies their family, regardless of what they admittedly pretend in front of the others. It's mostly about politics and emotional manipulations. Aside from saccharine tactics, terrorizing children to force pretenses of emotion and false declarations of belief out of them are the norm. It's Stockholm syndrome, along with about every other form of brainwashing tactic ever devised, with extensive state and social backing. Personally, like plenty of non-PC people risking getting branded as "sociopath" and reflexively socially ostracized as defective, they were consciously the worst enemies I've ever had in my life since age fucking 2...

In France, Most Comments on Gaza Conflict Yanked From Mainstream News Sites

Nephandus Re:Meta-problem (511 comments)

Funny, I thought women were soldiers too in Israel... A bit hard to not "hide" behind civilians when 1) you are one and 2) in your own backyard.

You sound like the dumbshit US soldiers complaining about people carrying weapons in Afghanistan when the entire area's a fucking demilitarized zone when not outright a war-zone. Of course, they're both armed and in civilian areas. It's their opponents that're insanely myopic about how over-privileged their position is. Rolling tanks down streets, while daring anyone to use their own bloody roads in accordance to local laws, then bitching about the locals carrying AKs...

Then why are their laws that explicitly discriminate against Palestinian citizens? And kudos on handwaving capricious applications of military "law" applied to civilians outside Israel proper, just under their jackboot-heel...

Empathy For Virtual Characters Studied With FMRI Brain Imaging

Nephandus Re:Good to lose (52 comments)

There is no good. There is only power. Initiation of force is the issue, but political bullshit already loaded that. Monsters ironically were originally juxtaposed with heroes primarily in that heroes were prettier to humans. Most were overprivileged douche-nozzles as many monsters were just hermits from an older world that occasionally got in the way of some king or mob's plans. Why submit yourself to psychotic abusers, if you have any other choice? You're not a better person for being their pretentious slave but increasingly less of a person. Ironically, the NSA are monsters making monsters in service of the worst monsters the world has ever seen. Serve them or theirs and you're a monster too, just a sniveling little toady bitch on the bottom, another proud cog in the growing totalitarian machine.br"Sometimes peace is another word for surrender."

Empathy For Virtual Characters Studied With FMRI Brain Imaging

Nephandus Re:Good to lose (52 comments)

"Is it better to out-monster the monster or to be quietly devoured?"
Might want to look up slave morality though. Those who refuse to eat monsters just make them well fed. Would I want to be "friends" with people that expect me to dive under the bus when useful to them? Reciprocity rarely exists in reality, mostly just the pretense wrapped in sophistry, and it's assumption is of no utility when you lose more than you gain.

Mostly I leave people the fuck alone and wish they neutrally fucked off. Even the well meaning are mostly parasitic to me and obstacles to my purposes. The golden rule is pyrite but makes for a nice beatin' stick when its bruises double as scarlet letters for violation of a given subculture's version of PC.

Empathy For Virtual Characters Studied With FMRI Brain Imaging

Nephandus Re:Gömböc (52 comments)

Ironic. The "more human" one actually passed by failing the "humanity" test. Leon was genuinely disturbed by the questions though not exactly in a "normal" manner. Rachael was a flat-line. That implication was personally disturbing and confusing as child. Even weirder now since I notice neurotypicals would likewise pass such by failing while real autists would more likely fail by passing, though the former would be way more likely to shoot you, natch.

Also, reminds me of Robocop (the series...) noting a politician was passing his voice stress analyzer by such deep conditioning that he couldn't even intentionally fail. Those'd easily pass such an emotion test would more likely fail such a stress test and vice versa. How much "empathy" nowadays is shallow, myopic, conditioned cliche? Lack of empathy for acceptable targets not only gets free passes but even can count for empathy points via privileging of "normality" and its redefining "humanity" as a term of social approval. The socially recognized "nice" people are usually the most deluded and/or deceitful.

The Daily Harassment of Women In the Game Industry

Nephandus Re:Pft (962 comments)

Force vaginal intercourse or fellatio ON a male isn't classified as "sexual assault" in NC, much less "rape". It's just a misdemeanor instead of a felony. Quite an issue. There's a similar situation in the UK and apparently Texas as per the poster I was originally replying to before your proudly ignorant sexists trolled in.

Which is why the "invective" wasn't the fucking argument. Again, embarrassing. Might want to get back to learning logic since sophistry's clearly addled your cognitive faculties, whether intentional or not.

Nephandus Re:Pft (962 comments)

Yeah, and RAPE stats always include all "sexual assault"? Notice it only specifies penetration. Much like the UK, being "forced to penetrate" isn't classified as criminal "penetration" as per "sexual act" merely "sexual contact" which is just "sexual battery". The CDC didn't class "forced to penetrate" as not rape for a reason, You pretentious, deluded little shit-stain.

I referenced how the crime against nature law was used in the past. I'd say you're reading comprehension needs work, but you're just a femitroll, so it doesn't matter.

It takes a real WOMAN to own up to the fact that this harassment of men is insidious and pervasive in the tech/geek communities. But the girls will just continue to try and explain why it is the men's problem, not theirs.

Nephandus Re:Pft (962 comments)

Yep. They just won't admit it, like so many things. See so much shit as a long time moderator of a dating site and getting roped into unpaid tech support. Chick brags about putting her ankles behind her head but bitches about a guy directly asking her about sex yet has multiple dick pic guys on a rotating booty call schedule. Offered me anal sex first time I spoke to her. Worst example, ignoring my personal abusers who were/are easily my vocal majority, but at least near a majority of chicks do shit like that at some point, usually on and off for at least a decade. Most reports of inappropriate messages I ever saw were from females that'd lost an argument they'd started and were just pissed about it. Sadly, it still counted against the guys.

Nephandus Re:Pft (962 comments)

NC requires victims have a vagina. I think sodomy used to fall under the obsolete "crime against nature" law though that was primarily for convicting homosexuals and was as likely to get a male victim convicted as his male attacker when actually enforced. Females using implements still didn't count as attackers of males under that one either, natch.

Nephandus Re:This has nothing to do with sexism (962 comments)

"Respect" that's special treatment only of women by only men defined only by women. That's respect. That's chauvinistic-narcissism-based deference. I've yet to meet a single woman in my life that wasn't sure she deserved special treatment. Even the relatively nice (in the rare non-PC bullshit sense of the word) ones were myopic as hell and admittedly treated women differently even when going on about general "humanity". One stranger says "creep" and they're off trying to blacklist the guy with no details much less any reason to believe the accuser, and you can NEVER call them on this no matter how blatant and recursive the contradictions.
