A lot of folks in the OSR have a bad relationship with rpg.net. They hate that people pop up to crap on your threads, or tell you that you are wrong to like older D&D, or just won't get off your lawn (damn kids!). I understand that, but you won't catch me slagging off rpg.net.
Maybe it's because it was my first connection to other gamers when I got back into gaming.
Maybe it's because I have had and continue to have good discussions there.
Or maybe...just maybe...it's because you can get involved in a little discussion of how cool Greg Stafford's Prince Valiant game was and how cool it would be if it were put out again, maybe for something public domain like Robin Hood or something well-regarded but never licensed like the Chronicle of Prydain, and twenty-four hours later Greg freakin' Stafford pops up and say, "OK. You guys want it, I'll ask Chaosium for the rights back and see what I can do."
To me, that's just priceless. Worth any amount of snot-nosed kids and there computer game whatwhosits.
