His facebook posts (multiple) was the straw that broke the camel's back but also there was his fumbling of the CSIO Kickstarter debacle after taking over from his son. Which included among other thing opening a webstore to sell physical copies of maps that the Kickstater project owed to its backers. And this was before I spoke to him and the other JG licensees about his facebook posts.
As for the facebook past, the ones that I objected where racist and anti-Semitic not political. I knew about his right wing beliefs for years as I seen his post crop up on my facebook feed periodically. What didn't appear until Jan 2020 was the racist and anti-Semitic posts that were sprinkled throughout. Then when I searched his public posts, the ones anybody can see, I saw why because there were one or two of them for every dozen or so post on politics. So the odds were not good for them to crop especially I was an infrequent user of facebook and most of my feed was originated from family. So when I did the search, there are dozens of these posts stretching back years.
And the content this post were not a little anti-Semitic or racist. They were filled with tropes that I read about from history like stuff from the Protocols of the Elder Zion and so on.
So the situation for me was a little more clear cut than not liking somebody's political views. As for the ensuing events, I talked to RB2 privately first, and then the licensees, Goodman Games, and Frog God Games privately second, then it became public, then I made my public post about the matter.
As far as I am concern Bob Bledsaw 2 dug his own grave on the matter. He had people actively trying to help him by either licensing usable IP, or pitching in directly (myself). Yet when it came to the CSIO itself, RB2 just would not get going on it.
