miserable on here, yeah. look i've been on these forums for eleven years just about. as far as i know i'm the oldest regular user here. i went to AsPD because I could talk freely and any issues with other users could be handled between themselves instead of someone stepping into to collar everyone like we're in 1984. my only fault is how i choose to communicate. it's sometimes confusing, unclear, and abrasive. i'm a nice person though. but AsPD forum was closed one hour and I got my butt slapped with scarlet shame. so here i am, all perfect little lines and spaces. talking like i'm choking on a button up shirt. all i want to do is communicate with people here when in most every other situation i don't feel like any communication is going on at all. my mouths sewed half shut and i'm mumbling whatever stupid crap i need to.

It's a free site. Everyone knew the score when they signed up and if they make a decision to lower revenue to limit "awkward" posters, then that's affecting them alone.

If they choose to close the whole site tomorrow, no one would have any control over that or any recourse.

If you don't like being treated like a child, go somewhere else. I don't think I get treated like a child; I'd be interested to know how you feel you've been treated like this.

I doubt revenue was the driving force of the site's creation, otherwise they would promote traffic at the expense of everything else, which seems to be the opposite of what they're doing. They also would detect and ban ad-blockers.

There are a few who seem to think they have some divine right to be here, but the basic fact is that we're all benefiting from a free service.

I'm not defending them for the way they run it; if I was running it, it would be significantly different. However, it is the way it is, whether we like it or not.

Everything's a choice.

I also feel stifled to a degree. It's certainly become less recently, but it is what it is.
I'm not arguing; I'm explaining why I'm right.

You really can be abrasive, but it's on the verge of becoming endearing.

Your butt slapped with scarlet shame, if I was a dude, that might be hot.

A lot of this site is beginning to lose its payoff for me - aside from the very occassional opportunity to have some interesting discussions.
At this point, I'm uncertain if its value will be restored for me even if things were returned to normal.

With some doubts, I am relatively under the impression that you were seriously trying to understand yourself on the closed forum; then, even if you don't care, and have a very cold, rational and almost indifferent reaction... solidarity.

I found the title of the topic interesting in light of the recent news that AsPD forum was closed indefinetely. At least we're allowed to discuss the state of other forums. I wanted to show some solidarity, as HSS said.


PS pls no ban admin-san. Solidarity saved us from communism.

I don't know why I like watching things fall apart and people running like chickens without a head. Destruction is more enjoyable than creation to me.

Something for me to think about.
