There's been some hilarious and depressing stuff at the Knights & Knaves Alehouse recently. Via Kellri, there's this amazing thread, where a handful of reasonable people try to have a discussion while surrounded by jibbering, bile-filled idiots. It reminds me of one of those chat room discussions on virgin.net circa 1997, where you'd have two people in a room having a pleasant conversation, punctuated by obscene and nonsensical comments in the background from adolescent boys. Then there's a thread accusing Zeb Cook of being a liar because he doesn't think the 2e ranger was based on Drizzt. (Can you get a more geeky discussion subject than that? It even beats "That idiot thinks Captain Picard is better than Captain Kirk!" in the nerdliness stakes.)
And finally there's a nice dollop of Old School Orthodoxy on top, to finish off a particularly bitter-tasting and stodgy cake. Yep, if it was ever in doubt: the OSR isn't so much a revolution as a counter-reformation, and I sometimes get the feeling that some of its supporters rather wish they had the methods of the Spanish Inquisition at their disposal, if only it was legal.
I'm not a member of the Knights & Knaves Alehouse but this sort of thing makes me want to join in. Far more entertaining than what's on TV, at any rate.
