TL;DR:An artist named Zak Smith, a lifelong shit-stirrer and fart-huffer, came afoul of Twitter and was alleged to have harassed women coworkers. Mearls said he investigated the claims and found no merit. Then people started claiming that Mearls had given the names and contact info of the accusers to Smith, something with basically zero evidence and which neither of them have admitted to. Months later, Smith's ex accuses him of being an abusive husband who coerced and browbeat people into having sex. He denied the claims and has sued her over them, that whole lawsuit is still pending so there's no entertaining story from that yet. He also sued an RPGnet/SA mod who had been broadcasting these accusations and won, getting a financial payout and a forced retraction, but this was in Australia which has a super low bar for defamation lawsuits, so Twitter has promptly ignored it and continued calling him a rapist. Though at this point, Jesus, Buddha, and Albert Einstein could all appear and vouch for the man and Twitter would still call him a rapist.
That said, Zak Smith is already a borderline cow and burns bridges like he's trying for insurance money. I've no idea whether the allegations have any truth or if it's a smear campaign, but since the guy's a rampant asshole it's really no skin off my back whichever side comes out on top here.
Yeah I know, right?....did he just imply women are bad at math and illiterate in the name of femminism?
Thinking about starting a Black Crusade campaign: here's my idea.
You're one of the many Chaos worshipers desperately trying to fight over the treasure of an ancient daemonic tainted sea world in the Eye of Terror. Beneath the seas are copious amounts of treasure, tentacles, teeth, and the corpses of those who have tried to plunder the vast reserves of wealth made by the Old Ones before their parting from the galaxy.
You're thinking of ANTIFA. BLM is still considered a (fairly radical in some cities) political group by the average American.I’m not buying any new dice. I just feel that it’s evil to use people’s desire to get dice and support the creators to fund a terrorist group.
BLM is a black-supremacist movement that engages in riots and looting. Their stated goals are for blacks to be above the law and given money for existing. Having a major gaming company diverting revenues from normal purchases to said group is extremely immoral, no different than a store openly donating proceeds from purchase to a group like the NRA or the Proud Boys.You're thinking of ANTIFA.

You are, essentially, mad that a company that makes a product you don't buy is supporting a political group you're opposed to.
You can let your players change the setting if you really want. Its not like you have to call up GW and say "Hey, in my last DH game my players pulled out a bunch of Old One tech and used it to assassinate the God Emperor, you can't use him anymore. Please pass this on to everyone." People sometimes get weird about that, the world only exists to get changed by the players. You probably won't use the setting again and don't really have to force "canon" outcomes in most cases. Its their world to screw with as appropriate to their level of power and influence.Old one tech would be beyond priceless way beyond eldar tech or archeotech, you're talking about stuff which could circumvent the warp or even master it. In fact the dark gods would probably desire it's destruction unless it's something which could be corrupted or missused.
You might want to make really minor tech like the equivalant or a power sword or a music box otherwise it's a setting gamechanger.
