Actually kind of a pain in the ass: G+ has been a somewhat decent forum for OSR gaming discussions. The alternatives now are:
- Discord. Fine for small groups, in fact one of the best chat/voice systems around. But the public gaming discords are like a game shop full of drunk gamers, with every asshole shouting at you in text AND voice. Fuck those guys.
- Reddit, which is still full of Nazis, and they've been redesigning the site to make it impossible to read or post text, just browse through meme images. Fuck those guys.
- Web forums, which are generally run by actual Nazis (rpg dot net) or screaming children, see Discord.
So I guess the conversation part is over, back to isolated gaming blogs, sometimes linking to each other.
As for Google, I mean, it's not like anyone expected privacy posting to G+. It's a fucking spyware program from the spyware company.
