Might as well complain about things here instead of PMs.
Junk, what the fuck?
No, seriously, what the actual fuck are you doing?
The first problem I have with this is the notion of Lainzine as something you control - while you are a major driving force behind it, Lainzine isn't something that belongs to anyone that can be held hostage - let's be real, this is what it is - to drive users anywhere. Lainzine exists separately from drama or you, so don't bring it where it doesn't belong.
>What isn't water under the bridge is the incredibly recent opportunism I've seen in members of the lainchan.org staff - really, the only members of the staff still remaining after most of the old guard left.
There's a separate notion going around that it's Appleman and like two people versus some massive horde of mods that have split off, but it's more of a 50/50.
About the actual opportunism, there is none. I mean, really, what you are bringing up here isn't anything real. If you are making a claim that the quotes show something because kashire is saying that things being cleaned makes for a good restart and reinvigoration is somehow opportunism, then .jp is the same thing. It's not that .jp is inherently a bad idea, but you're operating under a clear double standard there.
Lisp's incoherent ramblings about politics haven't been taken seriously by any staff member since I-don't-know-when, and claiming that this is somehow indicative of the staff as a whole is either ignoring the entire past of the staff or blatant lying, which I really don't want it to be, because I like you, Junk, you fucking idiot.
Arguing with lisp happens here and there, but all he's done as an influence for the site is manage /lam/ and delete posts that break the rules. As much as his political views are a heap of trash for my liberal eyes, he doesn't powertrip or use his powers for doing anything that isn't ok.
Then there's the thing about changing the links. Honestly, out of everything, that might be the worst thing. As far as I am aware, that is genuinely the only instance of someone who is a part of the staff using their power in a way that is against the rules, moderation guidelines and basic human decency. The issue I have here isn't one of .org vs .jp - I think Appleman's a good person and he's committing his time for the site, more so than happened when kalyx was in charge - the most frustrating thing of all for me is the things that you've done, because after pulling soykaf like this, there is no gluing the staff back together.
I still like you Junk, more than a lot of other people from the staff, but I seriously think you've fucked up a lot of things with your handling of this all.
I just wanted to have a place where I don't have to feel like soykaf about unnecessary internal drama.
