I find it amazing that you people keep kissing Reed's ass when someone even mildly disagrees with him. First of all, those of you who have turned to being rude and generally unfriendly to me, well shame on you. First of all, not only was that my departure post, and you should have sent me out with a good impression, or at least a smile on my face, but to literally jump to insults for pointing out faults in administration? That's low. And if I may, it seems less about what's right, and more about "let's kiss ass until we got mod." And you can deny it all you want, and you maybe able to convince yourself our lie to yourselves about it, but that's pretty much what you're doing. Secondly; I explicitly stated that those who were breaking the rules should have been punished. I acknowledged that when we spammed we deserved out ban, and hell it was worth it for the laughs WE had anyway, and I acknowledge that UF using "faggot," while not a bad thing in my personal opinion, us against the rules. Did he deserve a ban, however? Not at all. Nor was this the reason I'm leaving, it was just the last straw in the haystack. I have a problem with Reed slowly destroying the forums. When we all protested against the deletion of the convo thread, he didn't give a single fuck. HE could have asked our opinion, or held a debate, or any of these things. But he didn't. Because he doesn't care. When Eggboy made the second Dear Reed thread (Oh by the way, reed backwards is deer. Kinda ironic, huh?) he idn't even bother to allay any of the concerns. BEcause he doesn't care. And when arguments broke out over the spamming session, rather than settle everyoen down, HE ADDED EMBERS TO THE FLAME. HE could have said, everyoen settle down, or anything like that, but instead he went: OH HEY ALTS. Not to say they should have been ignored. Alts are clearly a rule violation, but I find it impecable that it's only insulting someone of Reed doesn't agree with you. The lot of you showed in neccesary hostility during the spam affair, and rather than him imposing his "be nice to everyone rule," he fuckign helped you. And then when Unknown Flames uses the word faggot, suddenly that's not nice anymore? No. Bullshit. It's just Reed being power-hungry. Reed may pay for the site, and he may do all the maintance, but thsi sit is jsut as mcuh ours is it is his. We developed the community, we stuck through the hard times. And then Reed comes back and tears it right down the middle. I appreciate what he's done for the site, but face it. HE fucked us over. Bad.
This is my official final post on the forums. Do not bother replying to this, and don't attempt to argue with me. This is what I think about the situation, and nothings going to change it. Goodbye gentlemen.
