/SeriousDiscussion has very strict rules. Unfortunately I do wish nothing was deleted in my thread, because what it proves is definite collusion of some group of individuals to downvote anything which disagrees with the hamstrung narrative that "@She is evil". If you're an advocate for free speech and not a hypocrite, that is the exact opposite of what you want to do. Now instead of being able to clearly demonstrate it, a lot of what you see are just downvotes on me and others. There is collusion apparent, while me and the people who take the opposing view are being downvote brigaded. If you don't think this brigade is taking place, you must be blind at this point, because even comments not related to the topic are being targeted by it. Any topic discussing this has the people who are taking a legitimate position against Atko's decision to bow out to these trolls I've documented, that we've documented, are being brigaded.

There's no "clique" or "collusion". We're publicly saying we disagree. What's not public is the fact a group of people are trying to prevent us from being seen saying it.

Lol you know that anybody can look at the modlog and see what comments were deleted, right? Besides which I was in this thread earlier before Nurdoidz got trigger-happy on the banhammer. There were no attacks or incitements to witch-hunts. It's funny that for such a notoriously strict subverse, all of the bannings happened in the last few hours against the very people that were called out in your post.

Yes, I do know. I also know none of that was my doing, and while I was offline when they happened I told Nurdoidz I wish they hadn't happened - but rules are rules. I wanted everyone to see what kind of people we're disagreeing with, and the "level" of discussion they have. That's the thing about rules that is being deliberately not understood: They exist for a minimum standard of discourse.

Additionally, if you look at the investigation and read the comments of these people, it's evident some of them are openly admitted trolls. We even quote them saying as much. If you break the rules, you will be banned or your comment removed - that's what rules are for.
