[Petition] Bring ziq back as themself

Submitted by leftous in meta (edited )

I think the madness and toxicity has died down now, and we have had fair discussions and votes on a couple of initiatives that were of concern.

I am posting this as plea to our pal ziq to feel free to be themself, and not hide behind any persona. I hope they are alright and ready to do that, and the community is as well.

Edit - pronouns

Sure. But, IIRC, Ziq's pronouns are they/them, not he/him.

Oppose if this could be opposed. Ziq is still trolling the website.

Can defasher come back as admin instead? Ziq was a little bland.

I know defasher was closest to ziq's actual personality.

If they could show some restraint on the anger/insults, that would be ideal.

I'd rather not get harassed if I get the choice, thankyou very much.

This whole "we need to be polite to everyone" routine is strange to see on an anarchist site. If we don't call out folk when they have problematic or undeveloped politics, we're never gonna get nowhere.

When you equate real harassment with shittalking people that voice godawful opinions on the internet... Y'all are showing you too fucking fragile. Anarchy aint a non offensive tea party with your granny.

Sure, but I'm fairly sure I'm being inclusive with my beliefs. I really don't think any flaws I've shown are worth shouting and name-calling over.

You're nodefunallowed, right? You threw a big ass tantrum, flung insults and demanded your themes be removed. What exactly did zik do to you that you consider so unacceptable? Used the word 'colonialist' to describe straight up colonialism? Come on now.

Y'all need to develop a thicker skin and learn to not take your 'beliefs' so serious. Your politics aint your genetics. Someone prodding at your political identity doesn't warrant all this rage. Specially when that identity is as ridiculous as 'I really really like computers'.

You can't laugh at yourself, raddle aint ever gonna be nothing but a private club for fragile butterflies. No one is gonna post here as long as y'all are freaking out whenever someone cracks a harmless joke. Aint like zik is some kind of bigot for making fun of your whack politics.

Raddle needs a sense of humor and it needs to be less exposed to maoist purging.

I'll say that again - Ya'll need to develop a sense of humor.

Keep up that cointelpro noise bud. Hunt them nasty witches.

Come on, I know it's you. I was even going to be nice to you. I regret that now.

Seriously - this is not okay.

Instead of making rules to ban dissent and purge the anarcho-witches, how about we ban using the cointelpro guidebook to avoid having to answer to our fuck ups?

anarcho-witches

So I'd....purge myself? What are you talking about? If this was an exam on COINTELPRO tactics you'd be top of the class.

For real though bud, if you expect everyone here to make nice and bow down to you, you're doing anarchy wrong.

Any anarchist that isn't absolutely filled with anger is just a fake ass liberal in one of those fawkes masks.

Place is getting killed by commie bullshit, same as every anarchist space I've been on. Only way to safeguard raddle is to stand up to these toxic nerds the way defasher did. Zik should have never given them the rope.

We let them get their greasy little mitts into the site, they'll never let go. When they tried to ban zik for talking back to some lie-spewing tankie, the future of raddle was looking hopeless... Most of that little outrage club seems to have fucked off now though.

Seriously though oppose, after having been lied to like that I'm still very uncomfortable with them. /u/Dunde proves the madness hasn't died down.

Support! IIRC, /u/ziq said that they felt that who they really are was probably between /u/defasher or someone else… I hope they find that happy medium and are comfortable coming back. :)

Support! I'd be happy to have them back. Not as administrator or moderator, though - and not as a front figure for Raddle. Just as a regular community member (as we all should be, really).

Oppose, for what my voice matters this early in. If they're still pulling this shit, it's not healthy for other people and it's not healthy for them.

i still have a weird fondness for defasher even as i now know they were not real

Is anyone real on an anonymous message board like this? I'd argue defasher was realer than most.

They also claimed it was the closest to their real personality. But when they left the admin team and started being themselves by standing up to that tankie's misinfo, ya'll went right for the banhammer.
