Venger Satanis' Alpha Blue (an RPG currently on my to-be-reviewed list) has just been Censored by OBS, the largest bookseller of RPG products on the internet.
This comes several months after they instituted a policy agreeing that if anyone (but we all know that by 'anyone', they meant fashionable Pseudo-Activist Swine with totalitarian agendas) were to complain about any product at any time, this product would be pulled to be examined, and possibly permanently censored, rather than let it 'offend' anyone.
Venger Satanis publishes weird, sometimes juvenile products with a touch of rumpy-bumpy salaciousness. But it's not porn. It's not something that would warrant an X rating.
But it offends the sensibilities of dangerous, censorship-happy Swine who want to take control of the hobby.
So here we are, TWO WEEKS of review time, during which Satanis won't be able to sell his products. Are they going to pay him back for lost profits in that time? Is OBS going to make it up to him if his product is ruled to be Politically-correct enough to be allowed to stay? Of course, if it is, and the Outrage Brigade rises up in complaint and say mean things to the FUCKING SPINELESS COWARDS that run OBS (like Steve Wieck, who in censoring Alpha Blue has proven what a WORTHLESS FUCKING SHITSACK COWARD he is), then what will save Satanis from OBS fucking bending over again and turning around on its decision (to avoid being called 'sexist' by thought-control TOTALITARIANS like Tracy Hurley or Fred Hicks, who think THEY should get to decide what books you should or should not be allowed to read)?
So here is what all of you can do:
1. Write to Steve Wieck, at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell him to stop being a fucking cunt, find his backbone, and stand up for free expression and against censoring his own website.
2. FUCK UP HIS SYSTEM. Go on the website and report every fucking book you can. Let him know the wages of sin.
3. Start going to the alternative. We now have the Tabletop Library. PUBLISHERS: put your products there and let Wieck know you will be putting your products there. Gamers: let publishers know you'd rather buy books there than on RPGNow or DTRPG (which are both owned by the same company, OBS, and run by the same FUCKING SLIMEBALL COWARD, Steve Wieck).
Buy all the stuff you can at the Tabletop Library!
Wieck, you piece of shit, get ready. I'm not going to let a Professional Sea Slug like yourself hand over the entire hobby to a gang of Pseudo-Activist Fascists just because you personally lack the vertebrae to ever ever stand up to them. You don't want to fight them because it's hard and they're really mean? Well, bitch, you haven't seen hard or mean yet. I'm the motherfucker that's stopped them before. And since you won't learn the easy way, the only option you leave us is to make it MUCH MORE UNCOMFORTABLE for you and your company to keep listening to the fascists and censoring products than it would be to stand up to the pseudo-activists, propping up your invertebrate mass however you can manage, and let out a sluglike meep of refusal to them, even if only out of fear of what people like me will do to you if you don't.
Do yourself a favor: put Alpha Blue back where it was. Now.
