yep, i'm leaving the forge.  i find the atmosphere here untenable due to Ron's totalitarian position.

it started here:  http://www.indie-rpgs.com/forum/index.php?topic=18273.0

then i wrote this email:

i just wanted to say something in this private email... i'm disappointed in you.  Ron, you let your emotions get the better of you and you became the A-hole.  i was attacked and will feel unwelcome at the Forge until you post an apology on your site.

i was just trying to save that poor girl a lot of grief.  i softened my opinion as much as possible (and i'm perfectly entitled to my opinion about a person's raw talent/ability).  your protecting her from potential negative feedback is irresponsible.  what's going to happen if she writes her game and non-sympathetic gamers read it?  i consider myself a pretty good writer and i've been fucking crucified time and time again.  what would happen to her?

good day to you, Darrick Dishaw

and received this an hour or so later: 

Hey Darrick,

It's an easy answer. At the Forge, only one single person's judgment of
courtesy matters: mine. If you can't accept it, then you shouldn't be
posting there.

Whether you, or anyone, "feels unwelcome" at the Forge based on my
moderating, is of no concern.


this is not the first antagonism i've felt here, but it will definitely be the last!  i will no longer log onto the Forge, so please contact me through my website if you need to:

good luck to all of you, Darrick
