You have a point. Maybe I crossed a line back at the RpgSite. It was another time (2013) and I was younger back then. But remember it wasn't me who brought the thing here - it was Tristram who caved down a quote from me back from the Site days, and brought it here to justify his own aggression towards me:You may not come from my culture but when you come online, you really should be aware of the culture of the places you are interacting.
I mean, I imagine all of us are into SOMETHING weird. I'm not judging you for liking something weird. Not gonna talk about it cause it isn't appropriate for an RPG forum (and I have no interest in broadcasting it to strangers and passing online acquaintances).
I'd be judging you for an inability to read the room. That is something completely different.
Also, and keep in mind I'm someone who has had some disagreements with Tristram in the past: I think you got hit with a threadban for a perfectly understandable reason and that you need to chill cause all you are doing is making yourself look bad.
In other words, It wasn't me disrespecting the room here, it was another user bringing up something I said from I dont know when from somewhere else. To which I had to defend myself. Even more so because he did it when I was absent (luckily someone saw it and gave me a heads up, to which I came here and reminded everyone I didn't condone rape in real life in any form, even more so because I'm a father of a beautiful daughter).
Try to picture this: you're calmly talking with some guy about PbtA and sex moves or something, innocently and with no I'll intentions, then the guy starts to become aggressive and trying to mock and ridicule you and your tastes out of nowhere. To what you start to realize "hey this guy is stressed or does he have something personal against me?", and then after subsequent attempts at engaging with the guy civilizedly you notice yes, the guy seems to have marked a target on you and wants to demoralize you or something, and NOW you get pissed and puts on a tantrum and goes away from the forums....
....just to see a post from the guy admitting "here, this post (from 2013) is what made me mad at Silva and be aggressive to him and his sex moves since then".
I mean, wtf?
If the guy hasn't messed up my past in another site to bring It here nothing of this would have happened. And if he had made that but confronted me about it, maybe I would talk about it civilized and even apologize if my tastes offended him somehow. I never disliked the guy until then, I had no reasons to be rude if he asked politely.
Anyway, fast forward to the present, it seems only reasonable to ask for another moderator to "supervise" my actions, given the historic above. Dont know if its viable for the staff, though. If not, well, I tried. Edit: Black Leaf above confirmed it's unviable.
And I said I was done here. Now I am. Thanks for the ideas Emperor. See ya.
