Spoken with your usual lack of tack, and missing the mark to boot. I think the question to ask, suggestion to make is that, given the general lack of oversight by TPF, the number of semi-active to barely active gods, and past abuses of position (the cabal acting as troll enablers a couple years back is a good example), isn't it time for some new gods? Or maybe even a democratically elected governing body (or at least an oversight committee)? I'm not sure how well those would go over, or even work for that matter, but at least they are something we could have an interesting discussion about.

As you no doubt noticed, raising personal grievances does not get you very far. Partly because of perceived slights, ingrained biases due to long held grudges, etc. Consider, for example, your view of tye juxtaposed with sundialsvc4's view of you.

And what of the result? Whether your account was hacked, a god disabled it, or the fallout from some random event billions of years ago finally hit earth, causing some anomaly to occur, you have weakened your position. And if people believe a god temporarily banned your account you have significantly weakened your position, because who will risk an even lengthier ban by joining your crusade?

I do not know what actually happened, but dang, what an incredibly damaging, self inflicted first salvo!

    Really. I think whomever saw fit to -- silently, unilaterally, and with neither warning nor announcement -- ban my account, made my point for me better than I ever could have hoped for.

    Will anything come of it? That's not up to me, I did my part. It would require collective action to change things, and there seems to be apathy for that.

    So I'll accept the conclusion of democratic apathy, shut-the-f***-up, and live with the status quo.

    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
        Come on , its completely plausible that you weren't banned at all

        No. It's not.
