I for one am kind of getting annoyed by all of the terminology that is starting to get used for our rules that gives it a really weird elitist
tinge.... do we really need to give all our terms and conditions LATIN phrases like "sites non gratis" and "decorum"??? It reminds me of the "as
per the ____ policy" of the business world... I hear enough of that all day, I don't want to read all that bureaucracy when I get home. I try to
avoid the forums like Board Business & Questions whenever possible for this reason, but now this stuff is getting regurgitated in all my other beloved
sections of this site. Everything is just becoming so fake and toned down... we are conspiracy theorists, we are supposed to be ANGRY and LOUD. You
can express your point, but for god's sake don't tell anyone they might be WRONG.
I have personally seen so many long-time great members here who contributed so much leave because of the ways things have gone... I still talk to a
number of them.
I know that part of trying to make the site more mainstream means that it will also become "safer" and more "friendly to everyone", but this kind
of contradicts the whole idea. We have stoppd denying ignorance and we have begun to breed it. "Yes "the man" is out to get you and all other
mainstream media is wrong.... the truth is in here, as long as you don't talk about this, this, this, this, this, this, this and this, link to
outside sources, risk hurting someone's feelings, get political, discuss any kind of substance for any kind of intented purpose or even provide news
articles about them, call hoaxes as hoaxes before we officially do, or sneeze.
Maybe I need a vacation too
