It's me! Ask Me Anything!
« on: Yesterday at 03:21:41 pm »
Re-introduction:

Because this is actually Rev. What's-His-Name?  Yes, I just can't stay away.  But really, how could I?  I joined the board back in 2005, during some chaotic years in my life.  Stuck in a going-nowhere retail job while finishing a Master's degree at a snail's pace, plus all kind of personal-life shenanigans that we just WON'T go into.  So it was really great to discover the PD, Discordianism and all that jazz, but also this place with a lot of cool cats who GET IT.  Plus the BIP, the Reality Safari's, and all kind of other projects.  So it was a big deal for me.  So yeah, it's kind of hard to totally leave behind something like this which proved to be pretty damned formative. 

And then the drug threads happened.

Now, I'm not coming here to tell you "I've changed man!".  My philosophy around drugs is pretty much the same.  BUT, the thing I've come to realize is that you don't have to go to the hilt every single time the topic comes up.  You can believe what you can believe, but there are times and places to go at it like you are ready to die on the hill.  (Plus it's all downhill from there anyway).  In other words, I was a party to escalating things far beyond where they needed to be escalated in those conversations.  I regret that.  I also realize I needlessly got hung up about people using my real name here, as I've come to find out when you get involved in the politics of marijuana, your name is going to get out no matter what, and the people on the other side are going to hate you no matter what.  So I don't know why I made such an issue out of that.  Well, you live and you learn right? 

So anyhoo, I started up this account awhile back, mostly just to be able to read what you guys were coming up with.  In these days of the Trump Administration Extravaganza, any little bit of Slack or Nonsense helps.  It really sucks out there. 

And to just cut to the Elephant, you guys do what you must with me.  I would ask for your consideration to let me remain and rejoin the fold.  I could give a fuck talking about drugs (I mean I do it all day for work anyway), and I don't feel as Punny these days, but obviously you guys do you as far as what you want to do with me.  But I'd like to continue to hang as the real me if you'd be so bold. 

So, hola, and uh, ask me anything!

When speccing a Templar for the healer role, is it better to evolve Cleansing Ritual into Extended Ritual for additional healing over time benefits, or instead morph it into Ritual of Retribution so that you can deploy AoE damage alongside heals and keep your DPS up?

I think that last thing.  But I'd wear a helmet.

Really?  It was intended as a reference to the character from The Maxx, not necessarily anything that had anything to do with me.

Outsourcing.  It's the American Way!

It's been awhile since I've emoji-ed here, so I think that was the right one, but who knows.

There are a lot of people who want you back, and a lot who you drove to distraction, It will be with them, the decision is made... No one wants a return to the lost two year argument on drugs, especially not now on the advent of the death of social media and return of long form discussion.

An addict often can't help but feed their habit, we can't be seen to be enabling your drug-topic need, as such your first step towards recovery:


If you post in a drug thread or about drugs in another thread, you will be banned again immediately

Cool.  And of course I would expect as much for the terms. 

I think for now I'll hang with this handle though.  I'm using the RWHN handle on Twitter, if any of you tweet these days.  I mean, I wouldn't blame you if you didn't.  It's a real bastion of crappola!
