I live, I die, I live again
Because stirring up a ruckus within the staff hierarchy with no warning, making questionable choices regarding introducing new staff, banning regular users and passing out infractions for petty reasons, and then waiting several days to leak out a feeble explanation that barely serves to genuinely cover any of the current issue is supposed to reassure the remaining few regulars here that we're not being driven away? Really?
I can't honestly believe any of that, and it bothers me that key opinions here have been conveniently preemptively silenced. Under current rule, is't a damn miracle I haven't been banned yet as it is. No loss if I am, if this is the way things are to stay.
As far as I know, nobody has been infracted for petty reasons. People have been infracted for being overly hostile and angry, however. Which is how things have always been.
Nobody is, or has been banned for having opinions. However, if you act like an ass about it, action might be taken.
Like I said, people were a bit heavy handed at first. I don't necessarily agree with how that was handled, but a lot of the posts were pretty hostile and deserved to be removed and infracted.Now I wish I could link to the first thread an comments I made which were polite, even if they had an undertone of slight irritation. Of course, I can not as they were harddeleted.
It is kind of easy to say that all action taken was necessary when everything pertaining to it has been conveniently harddeleted. Just saying. Yes some comments may have been inflammatory, but not *all*.
