Is there, or is there not, a disproportionately large number of BNP-related threads in D&D at the moment?
Yes there is
I'm not sure what you mean by "at the moment" though, it has been like this for as long as I can remember.
Is there, or is there not, a disproportionately large number of BNP supporters on TSR at the moment?
Seconded, I propose a forum boycott of any BNP related threads for atleast a fortnight.
Would that include this one?
Don't you believe that the number of threads on a particular topic reflects the need for discussion and the interest in the subject?
If you wanted to move them all to Politics sub-forum fair play, but it's a phase, just like the anti-Islam threads were.
It's difficult to avoid the BNP discussions when in every topic somebody manages to draw some sort of association with them.
I agree, for a joke-party they attract a disproportionate amount of attention.
I think that there have actually been fewer BNP related threads recently, compared to the obsession a few weeks back.
That's how D&D works, in phases. This one'll drift off and be replaced.
When you say BNP "related", I think it's possible that you're seeing more BNP than there is, simply because the issues that we identify with the BNP are so prevalent -- the National Question, multiculti, Clash of Civilisations, Islamic terrorism and Jihad, race, immigration, Us-Them...etc...are simply the real issues of the moment. D&D is getting it right.
The mainstream parties prefer to focus on more pedestrian issues publically, but like us they recognise that BIG BIG stuff is happening and that the sweeping under the carpet is going to require major structural changes to the house if it's to continue - the bulge is bigger than Biggin Hill.
