Welp, time to say goodbye.
I’ll still be eagerly checking the latest Tracy strip each day at the earliest time, but I won’t be posting anymore after today or reading the Comments other than Pequod’s Sunday poems. There’re 2 reasons I’m leaving.
This forum is now dominated by hate against the current strip and its writer. It can get up to 200 posts daily, but much of it is just the same people each posting multiple complaints each day. I don’t agree with them or enjoy reading their posts. The worst of it is I can’t even post a neutral main comment that’s neither attack/defense of the current strip without risking haters seeing my post as a chance to reply to me just to further vent their hate.
But before any of you feel too guilty/gleeful at the idea you “drove me out” there’s another much bigger reason I’m leaving that’s not the fault of any of you. It’s the moderators’ fault.
In 2019, without prior warning/notice the mods banned me. When you’re banned here, you can still post, but all your posts (and your past posts) are invisible to all but you. I had to figure out by myself why no one was responding to me. Once I did, I contacted the mods and was told I was banned cuz they thought my storylists were spam. I vociferously denied it. They relented & lifted the ban. But since then, they’ve occasionally removed some of my list a few days after I posted them. Lately, they’ve gotten much worse.
On 4/7, the mods removed my storylist within hours after I posted it. They’d never been that quick before. I contacted them, but all I got was a standard, generic reply, basically saying, “We mods can remove any post for any reason. We may have removed it for 1)Reason, 2)Reason, 3)Reason, etc, or it may not have been any of these reasons. We don’t care. We’re the mods so we can do what we want.”
Tbc for one more thing (character limits) I won’t miss.
