I could say the same thing. I thought about being nice but you are the one laying down an ultimatum. It gets old. Like you've said, it's been 3 years. Three years of people doing the same thing you are doing now.

You'll see when I have time to make a post that everything is really ok and you are over reacting based entirely on false assumptions.

The truth is no one cares what you guys post(its all public lol), there is no gag order, no conspiracies, just a site with politically incorrect memes and an upward and difficult road just to stay online.

I will miss you, but I will not kneel to you.

Putt, didn't you say in an update that we've pissed off some very powerful people, historically? Why do you now say that no one cares what we post?

My interpretation of those words, because it was followed by "(it's all public)", is that Putt meant no one cares to issue FISA warrants or otherwise breach the warrant canary in order to access extra information, because the contents of all our posts are, in fact, public. I don't know why else he would follow his words up with "it's all public" otherwise.

This is weird, Putt. Really weird.

I understand why you may not have time to keep this site in the loop with every little thing you're doing. Life is more important, the user base is pretty unsavory and hard to defend, and it's certainly not making you any money.

But it's best to keep a cool head. I've had your back on 100% of shit until a week ago. We've now been a week without any explanation. I'm explaining this because it's not a few users that feel this way, it's all of us. If this community gets fragmented and distrusting - you'll see most of us drop off. Maybe you want that, but if you dont I would suggest at least a very small announcement of "hey guys, problem was x, I'm working on it".

Like I said, this isn't a threat or ultimatum. But a lot of us are here because we have no where else where we really fit in. It would mean a lot to us misfits to throw us a little bone.

Honestly, a lot of us feel like mushrooms lately.

Thanks for posting this Middle. These responses from Putt have my stomach in knots. I hope he's just having a bad day, but this seems extremely out of character and downright petty.

We're upset because we care...

If you ever do leave, I would follow goats like you and @go1dfish anywhere. I don't have a lot of trust for many goats, but you're near the top of the list.

Hopefully cooler heads prevail before that...

it's all of us.

You're not speaking for me when you say the above. It's not all of us, although I am surprised by how many people can't go with the flow.

What does being a mushroom feel like?

I didn't post an ultimatum. My account means nothing. You could have let your userbase know what's going on a week ago.

You don't sound like Justin. I planned on keeping my account. Now I'm deleting it.

And.. I can't. I've been globally banned which prevents me from deleting my account. So long Justin. Good luck.


[–] clamhurt_legbeard 16 points 18 points (+34|-16) ago 

You very specifically posted an ultimatum.


[–] Venturer 3 points 17 points (+20|-3) ago

For those that don't trust chmod's statement about being globally banned


[–] Dr_Shekel_Nigger 1 points 13 points (+14|-1) ago 

the situation sucks. I don't like to see voaters go. I also don't like to see the site go down for 2 full days with no word from the admin, only for the site to be resurrected by the former admin, and then still more than an entire week later still no word from the admin... I think everyone is appreciative towards PuttItOut for keeping this going, but if he can't keep it going by himself, shouldn't he be putting up for vote a second in command or something like that? a backup? or two?


[–] Laurentius_the_pyro 9 points 9 points (+18|-9) ago  (edited ago)

"you better do X thing by Y date or else I'll do Z thing" is pretty much the definition of an ultimatum.

You should probably delete your previous comment if you want to lie about what you said.


[–] kasthegikes 0 points 21 points (+21|-0) ago 

Why havent you updated the canary?


[–] Nadesh 14 points -7 points (+7|-14) ago 

A global announcement effects the canary and NOT a post reply.

All good things come to those who wait... :)
