196) No longer allowed to "accidentally" leave "red herring" references and maps around where my players can notice them.
But that is half the fun of being a GM !!!

Confusing the heck outta the players ... it's one of the greatest source of fun for the GM.
That and killing PCs ... and I'm sure the Players would rather be confused.

Well that was rude.

197) No longer allowed to incorporate the Scythe of Death into the game to express to the players how frightened of the BBEG the gods are (See DF 6: 40 Artifacts).

198) No longer allowed to make a standard Lich BBEG, SERIOUSLY GUYS GADGET LIMITED UNKILLABLE THREE IS NOT FUNNY... Especially since they killed it wrong last time and now this game is "Guess what? I'm BAAAAAAACK!"

Also if you're talking about that list about the military, that was SKIPPY'S list not welshy's list. Welshy's list is made by someone who made up a list of things that a stereotypical loonie player would do in an rpg including things like polka gnomes or putting a grenade launcher on a pistol in an effort to make people laugh. Which was something I thought everyone was attempting to do here. If I'm mistaken then I would probably say these things happen. Nobody's perfect. I'd even apologize to you if you didn't call me pathetic for making such a mistake while ignoring the fact that it was never stated as such in the opening post that it had to be something that actually happened. I can understand if you just don't like my humour or if you prefer that these be something real. If that's the case then my posts can easily be ignored and avoided thanks to the fact that you could always just look at the username and just go "Hey I don't like this guys humour, I'm not going to read this post and move on." People don't always like the same things and there's nothing wrong with that. However you don't insult people and expect them to change what they're doing simply because you don't like it. Life doesn't work that way. You're not intimidating and the world doesn't revolve around simply because you demand it.

I know you're frustrated, and it seems you just got madder and madder the further time went by, but I'm not entirely sure he was doing it deliberately (for one, because I'm absentmindedly blunt that way). You already expressed discontent further upthread, so if at all possible, try to keep it on topic and address it through PMs/Mods. You're totally justified, but getting madder because he didn't resolve the issue on this thread is OT. OT isn't fun for anyone.

200) In a similar vein ... just because you design a quadraped Battlemech and give it the name MLP-101 does not mean you can refer to it as 'My Little Pony' Mech ... nor by any of the names of the characters on MLP ... nor can you name the Merc Company running this mech as the 'Bronies'.

It's just wrong.

202) I'm no longer allowed to permit a player to create a sentient tank (powered by a disembodied gnomish brain) that shoots candy out of its cannon.
a) People like sprinkles on their ice cream, but no one likes them at velocities where they spontaneously combust.
