"that's a smith and wesson, and you've had your six"

So it seems as the barrage of pre-election RSP threads is in full swing, and it looks like it'll get worse between now and November.

I have a feeling that it's going to become a lot more acerbic by that time, and there is going to be quite a lot of animosity between members of our collective. I already see it right now, and we still have 4 more months to go.

The question is Post Election, what are we going to do to rebuild those relationships...as fellow gamers, fellow hobbyists?

Maybe we need some sort of pact or agreement stating that whomever wins in November, that after that there may need to be some kind of armistice on discussion?

We are gamers and we leave the meta-gaming on the board, but after the dust settles we reflect, and proclaim a good game, no matter how hard the game was fought.

So I am soliciting ideas for ways of proper healing. Maybe we have one giant beer trade, or game trade... Like a secret santa, but without the secret. Maybe we can all send each other a care package to show that no matter the cultural differences we have, we still have a shared interest that bounds us together?

That's what the Feel The Love thread is for IMO.

Hey, I'm not saying RSP'ers need to go full on circle jerk and join a whacko cult like Feel the Love *shiver*.

Just a moment to show everyone they are alright with each other in a sincere gesture.

Don't hate on FTL! laugh

And FWIW, people should always take this shit with a grain of salt. It's the internets. People will be jerks sometimes. But you can always disagree on something without hating each other. RSP should be where you come to vent or come to discuss certain topics. If people can't take it with a grain of salt, they shouldn't be here imo

There is not enough salt.
The game never ends.
Threads get derailed and more often me-railed with tedious regularity so the posters I find interesting post less often.
And, as you say, 4 months to go.

Yay.

True. It makes us RSPers look much less perverted and bedlam than we really are.

Nuh-uh. This would only lead to HavocIsHere and me having to bear the greatest share, because our countries actually have good beer, instead of putrid baboon piss water.

Actually, the US is like other countries when it comes to beer. Most of the good stuff is kept within its borders, while the crap is unloaded on unsuspecting foreigners.

Is "fuck that" too strong a sentiment to express with respect to your idea? If so, then everybody can get together to see how many ghost peppers they can eat after the election, and the winner is declared exempt from all future BGG suspensions and such.

Why not go to BGG.con and play some games with your nemesis? Although there's no guarantee there won't be any hurt feelings when I stomp everyone at High Frontier.

It wasn't the stomping, it was the pointing and laughing at misfortune which caused hurt feelings.

Although, to be fair, that really couldn't be helped. Darilian: [Solar flare fries expensive piece of equipment halfway out to Callisto or wherever] "Dammit, my entire plan is wrecked! Well, wait a minute... I could leave my dead ship drifting out here, build a replacement piece & a new rocket back on Earth, fly it out here, and then pick up where I left off... that'll put me about ten turns behind, but at least I'll be beating Rusty..." [Ten turns later] "Finally, my ship's back in one piece, next turn I'll be back in the game!" [Solar flare fries the same expensive piece of equipment again]

You can't not laugh at that. It's practically the definition of comedy.

That is hilarious. I would probably show how funny I thought it was by flipping the table and punching a few people.

Don't worry about me. I don't have any feelings.

Also, if you're experiencing long-time butthurt from RSP, you're puny and weak and stupid and will be culled first in the zombie apocalypse, which I have tentatively scheduled for Jan. 8. 2013.

What about my failure to finish replying to a single one of your GeekMails since last November? That's got to sting a little.

What I was going to say in my replies was, thanks, I'm glad to hear I was so far from the worst imaginable roommate, and no, I don't know what happened to the bag of cash & peanut butter cups you say you had packed under your underwear. Or maybe you never mentioned the peanut butter cups--anyway, my point is, I don't know anything about it.
