I'm out of the DH and I am going to take a break from this website.

I appreciate the support guys. You can catch me on G+, on my blog or elsewhere.

I may be back in a while. I don't know.


I'd say more, but whats the point?

Gunfreak Supporting Member of TMP18 May 2017 12:53 p.m. PST

No don't leave me (us) we can get drunk and talk about Tordenskiold, and how we kicked some Swedish ass back in the day.

Enjoy your break. Take your time. grin

Understandable reaction, Weasel.

TMP loses another valuable member?

Rod I Robertson Supporting Member of TMP18 May 2017 1:34 p.m. PST

This is so sad. Weasel will be sorely missed and we're all the poorer for his departure, temporary or permanent. He's a gentleman and a cracking good game designer, exactly the kind of person we desperately need here and now he feels he must step away. It's been a hard last five or six years. How many more will walk away or be driven out? It's really very sad and so tragically unnecessary.

Rod Robertson.

Hope you come back again soon. I tremble to think how many awesome rulesets you will crank out with the extra time. I vote Dark Dungeon Souls :)

jah1956 Supporting Member of TMP18 May 2017 2:03 p.m. PST

Weasel please reconsider but if you think you have to go all the best and come back soon.

Winston Smith Supporting Member of TMP18 May 2017 2:06 p.m. PST

Don't let inconsistency in moderation turn you off. It's TMP's major feature.

Stryderg18 May 2017 2:31 p.m. PST

umm…What?

Gone Fishing Supporting Member of TMP18 May 2017 2:58 p.m. PST

This is incredibly sad. Take care of yourself, Weasel. You will be missed.

Will you be back in time for the premiere of TMP 5.0?

Snowflakes fall.

If he wants to be upset because I felt his posting of that picture was against forum rules, then let him go.

Grignotage18 May 2017 4:21 p.m. PST

Of course. The "oh he was just a sensitive snowflake" argument.

Who takes a lick and keeps on ticking?

John Leahy18 May 2017 4:43 p.m. PST

Bill, sometimes you just gotta know when to stop. Weasel is a good guy. He didn't deserve that shot.

Hafen von Schlockenberg Supporting Member of TMP18 May 2017 5:03 p.m. PST

And he didn't deserve to be Dawghoused. He did not "accuse or imply that a TMP member was a Nazi".

I repeat: did not.

Weasel, I hope you return soon. Sane voices are needed here.

IggyRoo18 May 2017 5:57 p.m. PST

That sounded like a personal attack to me?

+1 for John.

And he didn't deserve to be Dawghoused. He did not "accuse or imply that a TMP member was a Nazi".

I repeat: did not.

Posting that picture was an escalation of the discussion into an argument, with a clear implication that Legion4 was suggesting the killing of women and children.

In my view, that's a clear violation of forum rules.

And if Weasel can't accept that, there's nothing I can do. I'm not saying he has to agree with me. I'm just saying that I have to make judgment calls, and if he feels he can't accept that situation, then he should take a time out.

Personally, I think he's being a little snowflake about the whole thing. What's the big deal? But that's just my opinion.

Personal logo Editor in Chief Bill The Editor of TMP Fezian18 May 2017 8:44 p.m. PST

another downward spiral for TMP!

This is beginning to sound like global warming, Andrew. All the dire predictions, yet TMP keeps going along just fine! grin

Grignotage18 May 2017 8:52 p.m. PST

Cut out the snowflake crap.

Rallynow Supporting Member of TMP18 May 2017 8:58 p.m. PST

Climate change is a fact and it doesn't matter what anyone wants to believe. I don't have any kids so burn baby burn. But thank goodness TMP will survive the ordeal. That's all that matters.

basileus6618 May 2017 9:12 p.m. PST

And he didn't deserve to be Dawghoused. He did not "accuse or imply that a TMP member was a Nazi".

I repeat: did not.

Agreed. Both Bill and Legion overreacted. Weasel was just illustrating what the Nazis meant for anti-partisan warfare, i.e. the murder of civilians in retaliation to partisan attacks. See "Ordinary Men", by Christopher Browning, or still better, Ben Sepherd's "War in the Wild East".

I understood his post as a reminder to Legion4 that he hadn't thought thru his proposal and that Nazi anti-partisan warfare wasn't actually a model to follow for modern military.

basileus6618 May 2017 9:14 p.m. PST

By the way, Weasel, I hope you reconsider and come back soon. I, for one, appreciated your posts. And yes, you didn't anything wrong.

Personal logo Editor in Chief Bill The Editor of TMP Fezian18 May 2017 9:18 p.m. PST

Cut out the snowflake crap.

Why? It perfectly expresses how I feel. Part of being on a forum is accepting that you're going to get moderated once in a while. Maybe the moderator is right, and maybe the moderator is having a bad day. Either way, leaving a forum because you got moderated and didn't like it seems wussy to me.

Grignotage18 May 2017 9:20 p.m. PST

Wussy, snowflake.

Whatever.

Gunfreak Supporting Member of TMP18 May 2017 10:57 p.m. PST

And I think some people are assholes/idiots/racists etc, but if I call them that it's a personal attack. I guess glorious leaders don't have to follow their own rules

Echo Basileus66. Please reconsider, Weasel, after a breathe-out break. Your presence here is valued.

And Just Jack, your TMP Poll link doesn't work, or has been deleted. (?!)

Where did I call someone an asshole/idiot/racist?

Wuss, on the other hand, is a descriptive term and is allowed on the forum when it is appropriate. Note that Winston used the same term against me earlier in the topic.

Personal logo Weasel Supporting Member of TMP19 May 2017 5:10 a.m. PST

Multiple personal attacks against me for being a "snowflake" while you are locking multiple members for daring to disagree?

Thank you for making the decision an easy one, and a permanent one.

GarrisonMiniatures Supporting Member of TMP19 May 2017 5:14 a.m. PST

Wuss: 'a weak or ineffectual person (often used as a general term of abuse).'

Whether you or Winston, still comes across as a personal attack.

Personal logo Editor in Chief Bill The Editor of TMP Fezian19 May 2017 5:25 a.m. PST

Thank you for making the decision an easy one, and a permanent one.

That's fine, the feeling is mutual. You can post your offensive pictures on other forums in the future, and fight your imaginary wars against fascists there.

The personal attack rule applies to ad hominem attacks, not criticisms of someone's forum behavior or posts.

Don't bother. It's too late now. There is blood in the water, my friend.

General Disaster19 May 2017 2:26 p.m. PST

All these threads should be deleted and those that have been banned or dawghoused should be released.
This is damaging the forum, it should be about bringing people in the hobby together, not driving them away.
