“WotC has cost Hasbro stock dearly. Magic: The Gathering players are accusing the company of getting greedy and overprinting MTG cards during the pandemic. The company denies this, but also says they’re doubling down on bringing other IP into MTG. Dungeons & Dragons players are next — WotC says they’re interested in pushing microtransactions and digital downloads vis D&D Beyond. Are they going to kill the golden goose?”

I have a blog header with a quote from this guy…Not that I had any deep understanding of who he was, when I made it…but I agree with the statement quoted.

Would I have not made the header if I’d have known all of this?…Maybe…Or, maybe I would have anyway…Wise sentiments come from many sources…Some have a concerning history…

…Life is complicated…I’ll eventually retire that header…but I don’t regret making it.

This Has Helped Millions Stop Caring What People Think…

“Why do we care so much about what people think?

Everyone wishes we could stick it to the haters and not give a fuck about what those assholes think. But then someone says that one little thing and our insecurity spirals out of control and next thing we know we’re curled up in the fetal position again.

The good news is, we care about what people think because we aren’t complete monsters. If we didn’t care about others, we would be an even more terrible species than we already are. So instead of asking how to stop caring about what people think, we should ask: how do I better manage my response to what people think?

Now that’s a real fucking question.

In this video, I’ve got a short answer, a long answer and an answer that will probably surprise you.”

One critical complication here…is when we are talking about human beliefs which overwhelm a culture so egregiously, and in ways that make it impossible to just ignore.

If people largely have this idea, that by your simple existence they have some “right” to kill you…or imprison you…or ostracize you…or take away your ability to survive and thrive…you cannot just ignore that.

If possible, though…this is exactly why minority communities come into existence. They’re made up of people who understand each other, and who wont [normally] treat each other so badly…

…Those communities are good…but…does that mean we should stop fighting to change the outside culture?…to change what people think about us?…

…I think…by our very nature…we are forced to fight for something better.

“Fresh off an extraordinary betrayal from Democrats, railroad workers are beginning to rethink the longstanding but increasingly unidirectional alliance between labor and the Democratic Party. In a press release the Railroad Workers Union indicated that the union needed to explore options outside the two-party system with one organizer saying railroad workers had been “played for well over a century by politicians and union officials alike.”

Jimmy and Americans’ Comedian Kurt Metzger discuss the rail workers’ betrayal by Democrats and the way leftist commentators like Ryan Grim run interference for progressive Democrats involved in the betrayal.”

“Yes, Twitter shadowbanning is 100% real according to current Musk employees and former Twitter employees. This despite Twitter denying that shadowbans exist on multiple occasions… including Jack Dorsey testifying that Twitter did not shadowban accounts. Shadowbanning is such “a thing” at Twitter, that the company had ENTIRE TEAMS dedicated to who to shadowban. Elon Musk is now working on an option to at least let users know if they’ve been suppressed on Twitter, and how to get reinstated.”
