This is completely ridiculous and absurdly unnecessary: Puppy dogs and rainbows discussion thread.
I can’t stand for this, and obviously a ton of regs are cool with it so I should clearly no longer be a mod here. I do not represent this community. I’m very disappointed to see things turn farther in this direction, and to see this place in a different light as it’s grown to become its own site. It turns out, some of the things people said about this group back on 2p2 were actually accurate. If not then, now.
Violent fantasies, death wish lists, satirical fantasizing about who we would kill in an “absurd” way? That is the behavior of a left wing hate group. Protecting NBZ and making ridiculous arguments in his defense IS the behavior of a left wing hate group. A tame one, perhaps, given that nothing even close to real world violence has taken place… But it starts somewhere, and I don’t like where this is going.
I took a stand on this issue, but it’s clear to me today that I have lost the debate in the community on this subject. Too many people just don’t care, and most of the ones with strong feelings about it are in support of this sort of posting. Rather than lock a thread started by an admin and start a total shitstorm, I’m out.
I’ll be posting a lot less, too. I’m not sure how much I want to associate with a place that even allows this kind of posting, let alone embraces it, but it’s certainly a lot less than I currently do.
The community should take a long, hard look in the mirror at what it’s becoming.
