At least ss isn't some kind of fascist dictatorship, you can generally appeal and if you're sensible, things are fine.

I... respect that immensely...

*SNIFffffffffFFf*

I love being part of a community not run by giant babies, and also not being banned.

Nah. It doesn't even matter if you're right, sensible, good, etc.,

moderators and communities can also be wrong, stupid or downright malevolent!

Where we come from, we have a saying: "Mods are not Gods"

It's a crapshoot! the ultimate game, if you will.

That's why i'm so thankful to reside in this particular community, mostly, when its available to me.
Which, I have to be completely honest, is maybe the only thing in my life I look forward to Smile

A question: What do you think has America to do with that? Sorry if that question is impossible to answer, but asking it was worth a try. How do they say... Freedom of Speech?

It was very astonishing, how the forum dealt with the two wild Pokemons appearing last month. A Hitler-like dictator admin would have executed them quicker than you can blink.

It's risky to take a chance. But that's love!
Sometimes love hurts. And sometimes love ain't worth it.
But we still try Smile
I don't know what America has to do with it.
Empowerment? Optimism?

Can confirm. I've been banned or threadlocked all sorts of places because I'm right and people invested in living on lies are made uncomfortable, even when I'm being super polite.

Sometimes I have been in the wrong though, and sometimes I say true things in very rude ways that only make people want to argue with me in an adversarial way. I'm better at all this now than I was fifteen years ago.

I'm still usually right though, even when moderators and the majority of casual users disagree with me.
In the past, I apologized when I was in the right because I was afraid of peer pressure. For this, I apologize.

I must be cruel, but to be kind; that bad may begin, and worse be left behind.

You know, my first question as I read that was if we might have different ideas about the SS.
Then I realized ss is just the abbreviation for slimesalad...

That was an irritating and very funny splitsecond Grin

what? really? since when?! why does this always happen!?
The only common denominator is the ineptitude/disrespect of others.
It surely can't be my fault.

EDIT: I'm not banned!

Nathan has a very good point. Even if you're right, being confrontational for no apparent reason will shut off any listening that might occur.

And this community is so very much NOT like a heavy-handed authoritarian situation. Very rarely is there any kind of punitive measure, and very rarely do you even see mods talking like 'big officials'.

Truth is Sword, we all like you -- but we all find it immensely irritating for you make your problems everybody else's problem. We would listen to you if you wanted to just tell us you're having a hard time. That's fine. But spamming everybody and calling them idiots and fascists instead of opening up your ear holes when someone's pointing out unpleasant and unnecessary behavior...

This is literally like watching a screaming, hungry, tired toddler refuse to eat or sleep. Just cool off, man.

Kamina yeah baby, things in life are straightforward, and i am stupid, obstinate and abrasive

as always; answers are simple and can be summed up in a few paragraphs... especially by people who don't know what they're talking about!

what does one really expect? V

but this conversation is way too deep for me. Suffice to say, nothing of value was lost.
I honestly think you guys are too good for me. I know I've let people down before, and god willing, I will let them down again.
It's probably best if I follow Nathan's example and keep some distance for a while, especially if i am being so problematic. my life is full of problems, it was inevitable it would happen.
