Unclebear, over at his blog made a post about "Roleplaying & Respect" -
That people treated him differently because he was open about his interests in Roleplaying and DnD in particular.
I left some supportive remarks, as I found this sad that people are still so intollerant of other peoples hobbies and passtimes.
All I can say really is I've never encountered a DnD'er 'giving himself a treat' over a picture from a DnD manual - I have however walked in on someone 'indulging' his needs over a Character from Final Fantasy.
Hmmmmmmmmmmm . . . . . . . . . .
