What if you fuck off until you actually understand what a game is?
Killfiles are the answer.
Also not reposting that nonsense so people who /do/ have him in a
killfile don't have to see it ;-)
You know, I honestly don't know if 5E even has alignments. While
they've ever been a part of D&D, I've not used any rules to "enforce"
alignments since... well, 1st Ed (and even then, not for long).
Players are welcome to act out any alignment they want. I don't use
rules to enforce they stick to one or another, although that doesn't
mean there won't be consequences. Paladins (or clerics) who start
acting Chaotic Evil are really gonna tick off their gods, for
instance. Necromancers who completely embrace the light might have a
harder time making contact with the Forces of Evil that empower them.
Even fighters and thieves who wildly flip-flop between alignments will
probably have see this affect their relationships (who wants to deal
with someone so unpredictible?). But using things like experience or
dice-roll penalties is just too mechanical for my taste,
