…Erik Tenkar and his wonderful wife. Erik has been accused of some terrible things with no justification because of his politics, and his wife has been caught up in some of the crossfire. They’re both wonderful people, and Erik is a terrific gamer, and that’s what matters.
…Frog God Games, and in particular Bill Webb. Yes, they’re my direct competitors, and yes, they’re much more successful than I have dreamed of being. But when someone is unfairly accused of horrible things, they deserve support. And they have mine.
…Alex Macris. He had a huge hand in reviving interest in the “Domain Game”, and my own Adventures Great and Glorious owes a lot to that interest. He stands accused of working for the wrong person (who is a buffoon, but not a literal neo-Nazi), and is therefore being labeled a literal neo-Nazi. It’s absurd, and it’s wrong.
…Frank Mentzer. He’s an irascible son of a bitch, and he and I don’t agree on anything when it comes to politics. But he’s an old man in a wheelchair, and no more a “threat” or “danger” to others at conventions than a goldfish. Being labeled as such and punished for it is nonsense, and a great miscarriage of justice in the name of satisfying the Outrage Brigade.
…anyone else who has been unfairly accused of harassment, victims of the Twitter Outrage Brigade because of their political views, or a combination of the two. We’re here to play games with fireballs, dragons, and owlbears. Can’t we keep it that way?
