What surprises me about reading through that thread on RPoL is that someone keeps specifically bringing up Elven Maiden and (it seems to me) implying that it and M&M didn't break any of the rules set out in the "unsavoury content" posts. I'm not a big fan of dictatorships, but that's sort of what most places on the net are. Any IRC network, webpage, blogging site, etc, will always have an admin and/or server owner behin it whose standards are to be upheld because, well, it's their ball and they can tell you not to play with it if they don't like the way you're using it. If you don't like it, they can take their ball and go home and you're free to find another game of four-square.
I hope we never have to go to the extend that RPoL had to go to (deleting games), but honestly, if we got a game through here whose concept we felt was breaking our rules, we'd do the same thing. Right now, we're a small community, and so we may decide that the game in question has a good thing going on and includes all mature writers and yada yada yada. But were we as big as RPoL has come to be, we more than likely would not have time to read through the posts and make that call.
I like the idea they've had of registering in order to play adult games, but I don't agree with the idea of forcing someone to pay for that particular genre when, for example, the violence junkies can get away with just a mature flag and disappear to another part of RPoL. In that, I feel kinda discriminated against - a lot of the erotica I read (and I like to think the stuff I write, too) is better-written than some "omg powar!!!!!" DBZ-based game over there. I'm of two minds on this, though, because while I recognise that in RP, writing style and skill doesn't necessarily make something more or less worthwhile, nor do I feel that *my* writing should be deemed less worthwhile because of the genre in which I choose to RP. And that's the judgement I feel has been passed down with this proposed system. And I post this here mostly because it's nice to vent and opine an get some sort of feedback, but I really don't want to add this to the general RPoL forums because I can't bring up a whole lot of points that virtual4sight hasn't already raised.
Maybe I'm just bitching, too.
