I think the final straw has been broken with the insidious sniping and nasty RWNJ postings--with no ability of the left to reply in kind. You guys are welcome to this very discreditable website. Good gaming to you and BLM!

I don't know what RWNJ means either

nnascati Supporting Member of TMP01 Jul 2020 5:00 p.m. PST

Oh! I just googled it, I should have guessed. RWNJ = Right Wing Nut Job

Major Thom01 Jul 2020 5:02 p.m. PST

I looked it up, it means Right Wing Nut Job.

wmyers01 Jul 2020 5:07 p.m. PST

This makes me want to ask if nasty LWNJ postings and sniping is okay in his mind (or if there can even is such a thing) …

Perhaps a few examples of rwnj postings to validate his claims would be in order.

Ok thanks, bye.

Bye. I think most of us are adult enough to let things roll off our back and not let it bother us, but some of us….

"…insidious sniping and nasty RWNJ postings—with no ability of the left to reply in kind."

Your post on 5/26:
"Such a seditious posting is highly irresponsible. Such hyperbole with the knowledge of armed yahoos on capital steps is reprehensible. 80% of Americans think reopening too soon is a bad idea. This is not some sort of conspiracy to usurp the rights of Americans, despite the yammerings of a few highly visible yahoos.."

I always get a chuckle out of these types of posts. They could have just quietly stopped logging in. Nope, instead they have to loudly post to half a dozen different message boards that we won't have them to kick around any more.

As Curly Bill once said. "Well….bye."

MiniPigs01 Jul 2020 6:19 p.m. PST

If nothing else this will be a sort of fly-paper or roll call for RWNJs.

It'll be good to get everyone in one room for a group photo.

wmyers01 Jul 2020 6:24 p.m. PST

Minipigs, it's the kind of posts like the one you posted above that TFL are using as ammunition against this site.

The bullying and belittling and attempted character assassination.

That is the exact behaviour they are complaining about.

Oberlindes Sol LIC Supporting Member of TMP01 Jul 2020 6:37 p.m. PST

I agree with wmyers.

I don't want to be on a site with any kind of nut jobs.

I hear the stamping of his little feet as his mom calls him up to dinner.

Not sure what the Bureau of Land Management has to do with his post.

Two comments.

First, I just checked, and there's no complaints on file from Aethelflaeda was framed. So whatever he was offended by, he didn't give us a chance to look at it.

Second, he says 'his side' was prevented from replying. I'm not aware that any post of his today was deleted or snipped.

As I understand it the bureau of land management always takes the high ground!

Thresher01 Supporting Member of TMP01 Jul 2020 10:14 p.m. PST

So, RWNJ doesn't mean "Religious Warriors of the New Jihad"?

I thought I was on to something there.

Might make an interesting Sci-Fi faction, just for grins, especially since GZG makes suitable minis for them.

Personal logo War Artisan Sponsoring Member of TMP01 Jul 2020 11:10 p.m. PST

Apparently, Aethelflaeda was not aware that he could just choose to ignore or not read the posts that he found offensive. I have no expectation that everyone with whom I come into contact, either in person or on the internet, will have beliefs and opinions that coincide with mine, and I am quite content to allow those that disagree with me to happily continue their erroneous ways if they are unable to make convincing arguments that I am wrong.

No, it means, 'Any who doesn't agree with me.'

robert piepenbrink Supporting Member of TMP02 Jul 2020 3:40 a.m. PST

Oberlindes, you can hardly come to a site dedicated to nominal adults who play with toy soldiers and avoid nut cases. I'd say just try for apolitical ones.

(I had to post something, or MiniPigs would complain the roll call was incomplete.)

fantasque02 Jul 2020 3:43 a.m. PST

Sorry to see you go.
I can appreciate your reasons even if many above cannot.

rjones6902 Jul 2020 3:59 a.m. PST

Well we are gamers! So you see, you learned something new today Bill!

Black Lives Matter!

rjones6902 Jul 2020 4:00 a.m. PST

And a majority of Americans, across race and ethnicity, now express support for Black Lives Matter.

86% of Black Americans support Black Lives Matter (no surprise there)
75% of Asian Americans support BLM
77% of Hispanic Americans support BLM


60% of white Americans support BLM!!!


So whites who oppose BLM are not just a minority amongst all Americans in general, of all races and hues. They're a minority even amongst white people.

Of course, I support the rights of minorities – even misguided minorities like those who oppose BLM.

Andoreth02 Jul 2020 4:14 a.m. PST

This is what the stifle is for. I have not stifled many people but when I have it is because I have considered their posts to be the ravings of RWNJs.

Legion 402 Jul 2020 5:54 a.m. PST

So if there are RWNJs are there LWNJs or ? huh?

Do SJWs have to use social distancing ?
If they do … do they become un-SJWs ?

Are intellectual academics SJWs or ? Or LWNJs ? Or ?

How many SJWs, BLM, RWNJs and LWNJs dance on the head of a pin ?

Fortunately all I play now is sci-fi … So do Alien Lives Matter ? Or Like Grey Lives Matter, Martian Lives Matter, etc., etc. Will I be called racists if a wipe out a whole Ork warband with a Warp Missile(s). If so then I'd be up on multiple war crime charges ?! huh?

Couldn't be Crimes Against Humanity … cause dey ain't 'uman !!!! huh?

Keep it light boys … we should be able have an adult conversation and agree to disagree and move to start playing with our toys again.

I know I am and many here may be Old Fat White Men and/or Old Fat __________ [fill in the blank] …

old fart

Of course one of my favorite T-shirts I have seen recently had printed on it:

"I don't have a PhD …but I do have a DD-214" … evil grin

Perris070702 Jul 2020 9:51 a.m. PST

Just google "Black Lives Matter founders and Marxism" and see what you find. That should explain the whole RWNJ thing.

14Bore02 Jul 2020 11:49 a.m. PST

Could dive into this but would end up in the Dawghouse within 5 minutes.
Have a good day all, and stay cool its in the 90s out here.

billclo02 Jul 2020 12:30 p.m. PST

I note with interest that blacks claim that "Black Lives Matter", while they don't do anything about black on black crime in their communities (not to mention blacks killing thousands of their fellow blacks every year), and they refuse to critically examine their broken culture tells me all I need to know. Its not about justice…

I'm sure I'll be in the Dawghouse soon for mentioning that…

Personal logo Editor in Chief Bill The Editor of TMP Fezian02 Jul 2020 12:40 p.m. PST

I'm sure I'll be in the Dawghouse soon for mentioning that…

Since BLM does not claim to be a political party, you're not breaking the "no politics" rule (unless you make it explicitly political by mention certain parties or politicians).

But I would prefer we talk about minis. grin

billclo02 Jul 2020 1:09 p.m. PST

Bill, no I'm not planning on getting much closer to politics than I already said. I just find the whole BLM thing kind of hypocritical, when the actions of the black community say that they don't really care about black lives that much. Note their actions, not their words.

And to those who might call me a racist, a)I'm not white, so I can't be a racist (though I consider myself a culturist), and b) I married a Jew, so I can't be a Nazi. :)

Personal logo Editor in Chief Bill The Editor of TMP Fezian02 Jul 2020 4:45 p.m. PST

I'm not white, so I can't be a racist…

And I'm Mexican-American, with a bit of West African in me.

pzivh43 Supporting Member of TMP02 Jul 2020 5:08 p.m. PST

Ah, bilco, it doesn't matter what you are. It matters what you think, and whether you have committed a thought crime (See George Orwell, 1984). I'm sure the Ministry of Truth will be paying you a visit soon.

Phillius Sponsoring Member of TMP02 Jul 2020 6:02 p.m. PST

Is billclo Deleted by Moderator mis-using statistics?

Because the statistics he interprets to mean what he thinks, tell me something about the inadequacy and brutality of American policing?

Henry Martini02 Jul 2020 6:18 p.m. PST

Veteran English comedian Lenny Henry, whose parents are/were West Indian, used to tell a story during his live stand-up shows something along the lines of:

I was in a pub and noticed an attractive lady at the bar, so I went over and started chatting to her. I looked at her quizzically, and she said 'what is it?' I said 'say, have you got a bit of negro in you?'. She said 'no, I don't think so', and I said 'would you like a bit of negro in you?'.

wmyers02 Jul 2020 7:17 p.m. PST

It's a very confusing time with a few special interest groups trying to take advantage of a tragic event.

BLM has come under constant criticism from within the Black community for not representing their interests and having nothing to do with and no presence in these communities.

You cannot separate the political from this as the ideology Perris0707 rightly pointed out is directly responsible for actions. Just as it is/was for Saul Alinsky and his disciples.

I am sure some may use what we're mentioning here to pull a scene straight out of Monty Python and the Holy Grail about TMP being the "(insert insightful term) inherited in the system".

However, these persons who would wail and gnash their teeth would never allow as free of speech as their chosen enemies.

The only reason people of their political persuasion got this much control was because conservatives, while disagreeing with them were never underhanded and gave them accreditation and degrees. Those they were honourable with act exactly the opposite and would be more than happy to deny the same freedoms, especially speech, and would love to line you up against a wall (ie France in Reign of Terror, Republican Spain, Russia 1917+, China, Cambodia, Korea, Vietnam, Mexico in the 1920s, Portugal prior to 1926, etc).

It can happen here. And with how divided things are, it's quite likely to.

I too would rather just play with miniatures.

Korvessa02 Jul 2020 8:47 p.m. PST

Here is the problem:
(at risk of my first doghousing)
1) Schools concentrating on self esteem instead of education, so we have a generation that has high self esteem and no smarts.
2) Undeserved confidence because they got trophies for participating
