I was initially a bit disheartened when I saw the purge actually happened, with it's spread bigger than most feared. But perhaps it's not that bad at all, a minor setback, at worst. For me, that was the last straw as I won't be using that website any longer. But those who stay will eventually come together creating new subs similar to those banned today. Because that's the thing about free speech (especially for an open forum website) it's impossible to extinguish without completely revealing the twisted power freak idealogy behind the smiling corporate faces. Doing so would be suicide in today's pc culture, so they have to veil it behind easily agreed upon ideas like "removing hate" and "free speech doesn't include hate speech." Which, by the way, of course it fucking does. I hope this type of bullshit opens people's eyes to the gnarled intentions of these lifeless suits. I'm glad they did, now I know exactly what they think of us. Fuck. Them. Hopefully this site doesn't go down the same path, who knows. Either way, this is a fight they can not win. Use their fear against them, congregate, say what you really think and call them on their bullshit. They're a business at the end of the day, we can simply stop using their product, like I and I'm sure thousands of others have/will. Solidarity.
