In the past handful of months we've doubled the number of subscribers here at RPC. At first blush this seems encouraging; we want to help others figure this out, right?
Well it would be good news except a bunch of you lazy jerks aren't even bothering to read the side bar, aren't abiding by the rules (rule 2 being the most violated), and aren't posting in OYS. (u/coachdad8 posted about this recently. Read it.)
Not having bothered to read the sidebar(s) you aren't even sure what the red pill is, let alone trying to swallow it. We've seen a massive influx of posts and comments that basically amount to this: "How can I use game to make my blue-pilled fantasy come true?"
News flash cupcake: the blue pill is a lie. That, in a nutshell, is why we are here.
So before you go and write that post, before you post that comment, think: have you actually taken the time to educate yourself? I get it. There is a lot of jargon, the secular posts are a mixed bag, and u/red-curious likes to write small novels for each of his posts. Trust me, it's worth reading and reflecting on.
At the end of the day if we let this casual knuckleheadedness continue on unchecked this sub is going to turn into flannel-graph bible study with the Flanders and the message will be watered down to the point of uselessness (i.e., salt that has lost its saltiness).
As mods we've let a lot of this low-effort stuff slide because this community has always had a vibrant "immune system" to react to the abject stupidity that occasionally gets posted here. Time to step it up a notch gents.
Oh, by the way, hello and welcome to the new folks.
We're here to help you.
