Recent events, here amongst this community have shocked, hurt, upset and confused me.
And it upsets me even more that in such a caring, understanding, "safe" haven. That what has happened is not only tolerated, but is in a way encouraged.
So I get it - It is perfectly fine for a moderator to deceave, lie, use, fabricate stories, etc everyone for months on end. And have all the other moderators and administrators not only back him/her but also to dismiss feelings of genuine hurt from the people that have gotten hurt in this situation. And as if that isnt enough - the people that get hurt are TOLD to be supportive of what this moderator is going through.
It doesnt matter that because of this - people, members some that have been here for years, have been really affected by this and are questioning the safety of this site. It doesnt matter that "our" feelings are actually GENUINE. Ofcourse not.
This is playground stuff. Where the group of BULLIES intimidate those who are not as strong. Its very sad and dissapointing.
Well I am sorry guys - but seriously. I was bullied and silenced for many years. For many, many years my feelings did not matter. I had no choice but to do as I was told.
And NO - Im NOT that little girl anymore. I am me Sue - AKA SweetSue. I have grown. I may not be strong right now - but my gosh - if I am hurting because of something that has happened here. I am gonnna damn well express how I feel. Because I am a person too. And although they dont matter to some of you - my feelings have a right to be heard.
Yeah, I will support said moderater, because he/she is obviously hurting, and is very upset and is feeling so sorry for him/herself. Will I f**k as like.
Members have been banned for causing far less damage to this community. So I gotta ask. Why wasnt pseudome banned?
Is it coz he/she is a moderator. Oh yeah sorry I mean was. He/she resigned after great thought. Sheezus what was there to think about.
Yeah you couldnt believe how much "sympathy" I have for a person in a possition of trust - that takes advantage of that trust and hurts my friends.
incase its not obvious
I have No sympathy for pseudome. I will NOT be told to have sympathy. I am Sue - I have my own "eyes" and am not blinded by power.
But hey thanks everyone.
I KNOW who I am. And I am proud of me for finally allowing myself NOT to be bullied.
