no drama, just make it stop

Linked article that is important for gamers to understand and think about. Trigger warnings for Harassment.

So here’s the thing, I’m not the most observant guy, and I don’t game much outside of a select group of very nice people, but to my great sadness this is real and happens every day. While I feel there’s little I can do about such shallow juvenile Terrorism, if you ever have questions, or need help, whether you are in one of my games or not, I will listen and take action. This kind of Social Terror should be talked about and I’m glad that gaming events I go to have harassment policies that they talk about.

  1. This problem in gaming is part of why I poked JS to make a statement about harassment at ACUS. We are a bunch of good eggs with a lot of brave people and a much more comfortable gender mix – but I wanted an acknowledgment that it happens, and that we’re a community of people who aren’t going to stand for it. Lord knows we’re playing Very Adult Games, and that trust, while we like to treat it as a given, is really (previously) an unspoken vulnerability we all share with each other.
