18. I know.

I'm very grateful for the hospitality of the Loungers, but I'm also very bummed and feel that most of us Metazens got a raw deal because of a few (who should've just been suspended from Meta if need be). I don't believe in criticizing behind anyone's back, so there it is...

This does suck lemons, I have to say. I'm probably going to go back to mostly lurking soon, and I really didn't want to or plan to do that. But I don't feel like I have much to say about anything, after being treated like this. Transparency to blackout; democracy to dictatorship really isn't ok with me. We're just s'posed to go on posting and pretend like this didn't happen? Well I can't do that.

If somebody gets mistreated now, we don't even know it. (I happened to see a clue to an instance of that in the Lounge today -- but not enough to know what it's about, as it has to be now.) We can't even agree with each other or support each other in what happens to us here because we aren't allowed to know about it. All the bad stuff is merely invisible now, and that doesn't solve a thing, it makes it worse because it gets pretty much of a free pass without general awareness of it. It just isn't ok with me.

And the worst of it is... the people who behaved the worst on Meta are the most glad that it's gone... and that pisses me off.

I like the site a lot, I like the admins a lot, and I like most of you guys a lot. But this was wrong, wrong, wrong. Sorry, I don't get treated like this and just say, "please, sir, can I have some more".


ETA: link fix
