Thats just silly. I've been playing rpgs just as long and I don't feel some god-like ability to label or relabel things as I see fit. I can call a motorcycle a car all day, but it isn't. I can call a turkey a cow, change the name of doctor to smoctor, and do all sorts of crazy things. But I'll never say people have to jump on board my crazy-train an accept my nonsense because I am the sole decider of what is what. An rpg is a thing that stands for something, and that means it can be defined and is exclusive by nature. This site can cover what it wants, the members can believe what they want, but what a rpg is is a seperate thing and your belief, or anyones, is irrelevant.
