I think the same thing has happened here, and crow called people on it, and they got bitter.
No matter how many times this is repeated, it wont become true. A strange us vs. them has developed amongst contributing, intelligent users. Real nihilists vs. Fake nihilists, imposed by immediate exclusion. Name names
(this goes for everyone) and see if you can demonstrate this before you take a step on its basis. Take more than a glance. There is value in this forum and it was there before crow, during and will be after if it persists. Do not consider yourself immune to an echo chamber of opinion.
What exactly is it that you want? In concrete terms. Do you want people to assist you with the running of the website? Whatever it is, state it as goals, in simple language. I am personally willing to do whatever you require as long as it is within my power.
Whatever it is you want or will do, please stop falsely blaming good people for whatever problems you see. It only reflects poorly on you. There are no kvlt neckbeards here. I watched this play out closely, and my own first negative response was after a user was banned mid-contribution, mid-explanation. Are any even agreeing that they observe a problem or just repeating your words back at you (If you see a problem, solve it i.e.)? With the threat of an instant ban, who will be honest except in an enormously guarded fashion?
I have gained a lot personally from this forum and would be very sad to see it go, especially over something as ridiculous as these events. That is my only argument. It is the only one I can give honestly. Nevertheless ultimately you run it and may dispense with it as you please. If it detracts too much from actual work then I would say your hands are tied.P.S.:
Who exactly said copy-crow
? What was the context it was stated in? I have only seen it stated once, by Vigilance to Tree
. Vigilance seems to still be around. It was a non-event (until...). The next step was an angry, threatening thread that referenced it and now it is on everybody`s lips? This is the kind of strangeness I see, disparaging decent people is what I bristled at in the first place (and am still doing). Did I miss something? Is it instead endemic?
