Why not. I didn't want to leave anything when I was banned. But I did leave one comment. The straw that broke the camel's back. Being downvoted for agreeing that a bird picture was nice. This reminds me of when the righties came to Reddit and started Brigading leftists like me. I remembered them following me around and giving about 50 downvotes for saying "that's nice" on an obscure art sub. You're no different.

You can do what you want. It's your forum. If you just welcome anarchists and LGBT people you're allowed to do that. BUT TELL US. You have about 20 active members and ziq does most the posting. And I could have helped raddle to grow. Like I did Reddit. Cause I have the "here, read this" gene. But I see raddle is just for a tiny number of people. Your choice.

The way I see it, when someone tells you something is offensive you have 2 choices.

  1. Dig your heels in, lash out at everyone around you and leave in a fit of rage so your ego will remain unscathed and you won't have to change anything or suffer the mild embarassment of admitting you were wrong.

  2. Listen to the marginalized people who are expressing to you that they are hurt by your choice of words, engage in self analysis, grow as a person, use the experience to better yourself and your community.

Which one of these 2 choices is worthy of a leftist who wants to foster a better world for all?
