criminal offence, 10 minutes' drive from a memorial and cemetry where several dozen Nazi-executed ancestors of people I meet on a daily basis are buried.
You are correct that displaying these images in ignorance does not by default make one a racist. But displaying them with full knowledge of their historical significance and then CLAIMING THIS IS FUNNY? Imho anyone taking this line is in significant ways more despicable and more dangerous than an overt political racist.
To trivialise recent history of this gravity is to pass a line beyond which I believe society has full right to pass judgment upon you. I can but be thankful that the overwhelming concensus judgment of the interested community is that this behaviour is odious; you should be thankful that your association with people like this has been in an online space where you have been able to avoid the very real repercussions that acting like this in the real world would bring.

"Oh. Dont worry guy's its ok. It's just a screenshot from a film..." No. Denied. Wrong. Completely and utterly irrelevant. Your attempt at justifying it humors me. Anyone who glorifies and/or publicizes historically significant atrocities (for anything other than legitimate historical study) is in my humble opinion, not "funny". In fact, i would go as far as saying that lacking a total grasp of what 'black humor' is, is much funnier in itself. (which is what i'm assuming your beginning stance here is) Well, funnier or pitiful. If he/you guys are all about telling "out-there" jokes, at least be clever about the material or give it some depth. Bleating slurs isnt my idea of hilarity. Go and watch Jimmy Carr or Frankie Boyle, then come back and play your black humor card.
Not everyone behaves as TE do. So please don't act as if you dont understand why people might challenge or react like this. You cant always have a balance, i know. People such as yourselves, who try to be edgy and push the envelope will always exist. But you also cant have a steaming pile of Waffen SS embellished horse shit immaturely plopped onto your plate. Especially when you booked the table months in advance and actually ordered the Lobster.

A community wants to grow in such a way that helps maintain the atmosphere they have created. We have seen screenshots that are supposedly from this decision making process in The Enclave.
The way we do this in [RPS] is simple.
We have one rule:
Be excellent to each other.
From what we know, no Enclave leader would last an evening playing without breaking that rule. The rule does not mean we cannot take the piss out of each other, but there's a big difference between laughing with someone at their own actions and, in your words:

Cooper just summed up pretty much everything I was about to rant about at length.

also, I think RPS is pretty spokespersonny already: smed specifically asked to be at rezzed because of RPS/ Jims affiliation with the game, the pro7 guys seemed like they were definitely on our side and on the same wavelenght and this person in the original post seems like a bastard, so no worries there.
