There's a credo in the bar industry, chief. It's when you are behind the bar it's "your show". The owner, manager etc can't say shit when you take the helm. I have made it known that I will moderate as if it were a bar. Being fair to all but also strictly protecting vulnerable people's feelings, safety and etc.
Grizzly, I don't know how many PMs you got leading up to SLAD's absence, but it is probably not in a ratio comparable to mine. I told you what I want in full view -- I actually should have shitcanned this fucker when it came up, but I wanted SLAD to understand that people were actually thinking of her. So yeah, no, no fucking gossip about "who she really is". I would have done the same for you. So fucking chill.
As far as anything "preferential" going on, no it is just normal human understanding and compassion with a known "regular" of a once "conspiracy heavy" bent website. So Grizzly, don't piss off the bartender. But I really will never have the final say. This ain't my site. But I deffo can 86 you and I don't want to do that to you or anyone.
There is no me. There is no you. There is all. There is no you. There is no me. And that is all. A profound acceptance of an enormous pageantry. A haunting certainty that the unifying principle of this universe is love. -- Propagandhi
