The Mental Sausage Grinder

…grind, grind, grind

When I sometimes read the forums on RPGnet, it is often with a “watching a train wreck” sort of morbid fascination. Very rarely, I’ll comment on something. Usually, I find 99% of the topics there to be either bitchy, brainless or just plain boring.

However, last night I stumbled on this: http://forum.rpg.net/showthread.php?t=181356&page=1&pp=10 which happens to be about both Alarums & Excursions and Gaming In The “Good Old Days”.

Now, it does eventually descend into a typical RPGnet catfight and it is full of young gamers talking pretentiously out their asses on subjects they know nothing about, but there are some good nuggets in it.

    Man, that message thread was from back in MARCH. And you are only reading it now???
    A&E was mentioned in some other threads, with 10% of the messages being thoughtful and knowledgeable, and the remainder not having a frickin’ clue.
    In addition to the high noise:signal ration, I find RPG.net very frustratin to actually use as a resource, as there is no search function to properly follow threads or find things of interest that are older than a few months.
    Infinately worse, however, is rec.games.frp.*
