So, after not peeking at the roleplay section for about 4 months... I took a peek just now. Oh dear God, the content tags! What is the point of a collaborative story if you're going to lock down the minutiae of content parameters? That's something masturbatory psychotics do. Isn't the very point of roleplaying to be pleasantly surprised by the directions of other creatives? And who the hell REFRAINS from joining a roleplay because it has a certain tag on it? Are you not looking for an immersive story that takes you into new and unexplored situations? Are you, in fact, ALSO a masturbatory psychotic who is trying to expedite the indexing of their spank bank? This is highly anti-social. It allows people to join your roleplay and give ZERO contribution to the collaborative act of steering the story. I remember when (YES, I USED THAT PHRASE) I was a GM and I had to actually TALK to other players about where they wanted the story to go, thematically, stylistically and essentially. I didn't just tag the fuck out of my brainchild then sit back and watch the rats scurry around by heavily-prescribed rat maze. It's a mess! I despair for humanity! You're all masturbatory psychotics! (I'm loving that phrase right now. Say it three times really quickly, in front of a mirror. You'll love it.) SO, now that I have initiated this debate from a position of extremely hostile emotive prejudice that discourages all rationale discourse, PLEASE DISCUSS. Are Content Tags the gang signs of Satan?
