I'm just curious.

Yes, it is. Creating an alignment thread causes untold misery and suffering, all for the enjoyment of the OP. Therefore, it's evil. Which means at this point no one should sprinkle holy water on any of the messageboard threads, they're probably all contaminated by now :)

I was going to say it was a chaotic act, since it spreads anarchy and dissension, but I could go with evil too. Perhaps chaotic evil then. :)

I concur! Wow, that was fast. And we even got a lawful/chaotic component in!

I find that to be an acceptable judgment.

So a Paladin could smite anyone who started an alignment thread? Or do you have to start a certain amount of alignment threads before you yourself are irrevocably stained by your evil actions?


Yes, but not as evil as trolling in an alignment thread.


Meh

Starting an alignment thread (including this one) is an act so heinous, that a single instance is all that is required to permanently make one CE.

Here is a better question: Is responding to an alignment thread an evil act?

It's certainly chaotic, as we're aiding and abetting. As we're not stomping such threads out, it's at least neutral.

Yes, but I don't believe it is immediately damning. Now, responding more then once would be enough to make someone evil ...

... oh darn!

Yes I would say it is an evil act to create it and responding to it more than once is certainly evil. Only once is more chaotic perhaps neutral but not good.

Also please notice the use of three exclamations points. According to one expert it is a sure sign of craziness.

Is Creating an Alignment Thread a GOOD act?

No. Therefore, it is evil.

Creating an alignment thread may not be an evil act, but we'd like these threads to peacefully pass into the archives sooner rather than later.

No, but it is an evil act to perform thread necromancy on one.

And just in time for halloween!

responding to an alignment thread isn't evil, it just shows miserable Sense Motive and a low Wis score.

Err...

Or the alignment thread could be viewed as a profound zen riddle and hence ultimately an exercise in creating order from chaos and therefore Lawful.

Likewise it places upon others the challenge of sublimating their baser urges. and exercising control. Therefore it is also good.

I take my seat amongst my students,

Namaste.

It is most certainly an Evil act. Alignment threads have a very strong tendency to start war-like arguments, and starting a war for amusement is unquestionably an Evil act.

It is less clear whether it is a Chaotic act.
On some forums, such as the GitP forums, discussing real-world politics or religion is against the rules (even when it relates to D&D/PF), and alignment threads can easily get people to start discussing real world politics, so starting an alignment thread on GitP is most certainly Chaotic.

It gets more complicated when alignment descriptors are involved. For example, if you start a thread with the title "Is the alignment system racist? [Good]", then you have obviously commited an Evil act. But the evil act involved casting a spell/thread with the [Good] descriptor, making it partially Good!

Shadow Lodge

Except the spell in question is clearly not a Good descriptor spell, even though the thread poster decided to add the descriptor, probably through abuse of some weird 3.5 metamagic. I'm pretty sure that doesn't count. ;)
