The controversy about roleplaying games has died down but it is not over. Plenty of misinformation still circulates and some folks persistently teach that roleplaying games are linked to harm. I have made no attempt to cover every single problem that has been tied to the hobby but I have scoured the web looking for other sources. I have taken some time to review archived articles from various newspapers; if you have access to such archives through work or school, I suggest you do some searching. 

The vast majority of web sites defend one side or the other, so I have divided them thusly: the supporters of roleplaying games and the opposition to roleplaying games. If you know of a site I have missed, feel free to send it my way.
