I have a feeling such a thing would end up being like the simple majority for senate confirmations rule: a great idea when the party you favor is in power, but not so much when the one that isn't, is.

Yeah, it started with the phrase "You know, to just be grossly generalistic..."

To me, the most significant difference between Romney's 'we cannot reach these people' statement and Clinton's is that Clinton's was essentially true (she slightly underestimated the percentage of Trump supporters expressing bigoted views) while Romney's was completely false (most people paying no income tax vote Republican).

No it wasn't true. Not all people that voted for Trump fit in her basket, no matter how much some folks would like to believe it. Sure, some do, but not enough to risk hitting people she didn't intend to with that broad brush accidentally.

It was a sad attempt to say "if you're not with me, well then you're x".
It pissed people off, and partly responsible for why we now have a President Trump.

It is not fascism to expect people to obey the law.
It is not nationalism to want secure borders.
It is not racism to want immigrants to integrate into society.
It is not anti-immigration to be anti-illegal immigration.
It is not (insert random -ism or -phobia) to merely disagree with people.
It is not misogyny to not be cool with abortion.

These boxes that she put folks in were too broad, and unfortunately, it's now popular thought to equate these things, when they are not equal positions.

Yeah, forgot about the rest of what Romney said about the not paying taxes bit, wasn't omitted on purpose. That would piss off folks on both sides.

Again, we don't care about Trump's base. Trump's base is a screaming minority—albeit a powerful one within the GOP—that will never admit wrongdoing. A deplorable minority, you might say. A veritable basket.

THis line of thinking is literally what lost Hillary the election.

Everytime I see Carville on TV, my immediate lizard brain impulse is that he is the inventor of Cookiepuss. I know this is wrong everytime the thought occurs, yet I somehow cannot write over this erroneous mnemonic record.

Every time I see him on tv I think "That's what Colonel Sander's and Mr Clean's love child would look and sound like". :)

"Same as Trump" probably wasn't as big of a deal to those folks as the DNC working with Hillary against Bernie Sanders.
But, I'm sure there's some regret there regardless.

At least part of the reason Trump won was the low turnout of left leaning voters for Hillary. I wonder how many folks are regretting those decisions after a few weeks of Trump?

I'd be interested to know what percentage of the people out protesting didn't vote.

The child is an agent of fate, but the prophecy is vague and no one knows for sure whether it will right wrongs or compound them. It's too open to interpretation. It could be about the war on the mother's home, or have to do with refugees from it immigrating to the material plane.
Each side has it's own take, and will become fanatic about it.
The mother protects her child, and although she displays a great deal of affection for the child and it's father, no one is sure whether it's out of love or duty.
Decide which way things will go, and play it so no one is sure, and decide how the players actions affect the outcome.
Profit.

This goes way beyond whether you're a D or an R. Supporting and Advocating for Trump puts you on a completely different field.

There is a vast difference between actively supporting and advocating a candidate, and just showing up at the booth and simply choosing not to vote for their opponent. Don't read too much into things.

Anyway, seeing as how this is still a sensitive issue for some, I say we at least keep the moratorium on these threads in place a bit longer.

But amazingly, insinuating that specific people on the boards are an imminent physical threat based on who they voted for doesn't violate the Community Guidelines

Insinuate? It's being assumed that's the case. Which is bananas.

People of all beliefs were allowed to participate in the discussions before, I see no reason why that would change. But the politics of this site do lean a certain way, in general. The people who are opposed or come slant-wise on those majority beliefs are, naturally going to come into conflict.

I'm not sure where you get idea of an echo chamber from by allowing people to post. You'd be as free to disagree as ever.

Did you not see the election thread before it got nuked? Insults and name-calling were routine, but when it came from the pro-Hillary camp, it was allowed to stand unchallenged. It didn't take long for the whole thread to devolve into a "Hillary or GTFO" dumpster fire.

Yes, I am technically allowed to post, but when I know it means I will be subject to insults and abuse that is implicitly approved by the mods, why would I want to?

I was in that thread, so I can say with relative confidence that you're exaggerating more than a little. That being said, if you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen. Part of political discussion is wading through garbage. If you're not able or willing to do that, you're not going to have a very productive experience no matter where you go.

I saw a lot of what he describes, so YMMV, I guess.

Had a game where we were in a fight with a black dragon, and the rogue managed to drop on it as it flew by, made strength, acrobatics and grapple checks round after round while stabbing it to death, as we shot at it and threw spells at it. She rode it to the ground as it died, and made another acrobatics check to survive the fall and reduce damage.
She was called "The Spider" forever after.

See, I wouldn't consider that character to be a "special snowflake" in the bad sense. The character certainly has a unique personality, but it sounds like she enhanced the fun of everyone at the table. That's fine. It reaches the "bad" side if the player had insisted that she be allowed to play an actual minotaur starting out, regardless of campaign theme. Bonus points if she then later disrupts adventures because her minotaur won't fit in kobold-sized tunnels.

It could have gotten there, though, easily, and had with that player in other games. I realize not all players of this type do not wish to contribute to a group effort, but in her case she truly does. Treating her ideas as a puzzle to be solved rather than just a problem to be handled ended up making the game memorable and enjoyable for all the right reasons :P

That was one of the things they'd say to tease her character :)

I GM'd a game in theme similar to we be goblins, except i asked everyone to roll a kobold character. One player, who is known for having a flair for the creative, insisted that her kobold believed it was a minotaur. As the game went on, the other characters (not the players) teased her kobold barbarian about being crazy, because of those beliefs. She played it to the T. She bought a helmet with cow horns on it, and would charge people as part of her raging. She had appropriate rage powers She took the crazy talk, with "one day you'll see!" and really played into the concept. So, I wrote up a PrC for her to take to actually turn into a minotaur while raging (not all at once, it scaled up to a large minotaur by 10th level). I presented it to her, and she accepted it.
Normally, I think some people would get sick of the "special snowflake" player and roll their eyes. When her character actually turned into a minotaur during a major boss fight, it was fantastic. The other characters still thought she was weird, but no longer called her crazy.
I guess my point here is, that as a GM you can completely decide how much a "special snowflake" player does or does not disrupt your campaigns.

Remove 9th level casting classes from your games. 6th level delays things more along the lines of what you're looking for.

On a side note, perhaps the word "delayed" would have been a better choice for this thread?
