I just logged in for the very last time to write a goodbye speech.
I joined to respond to an existing thread. This thread then became quite extensive due to some debate and moderator insults. The moderators et al kept threatening to close it. I suppose the culture here is to always toe the line when it comes to established beliefs and understandings so there was naturally a tendency to pile on. Eventually the thread was closed with a moderator comment that such a thread shouldn’t happen again.
I consider this reprehensible to close a thread when shouting down dissenting beliefs isn’t effective so I immedeately logged out with the intention of never logging in again.
But lastnight I had a little extra time so I thought I’d ask Cecil Adams what his opinion was. No doubt his moderators think a lot like he does but I have great respect for Cecil Adams unlike hios moderators. I wanted a shot at hearing his opinion since in his extensive research he may have formed an opinion even if a nascent one.
Just for asking the question the thread was closed. I even specifically said I wasn’t going to argue any points and merely wanted any opinions that were supplied. I was given a warning.
Need I even tell the moderators what they can do with the “notification” I have.
I won’t be back and won’t log in again barring an apology.
