[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.

I don't remember them having it listed actually, but good catch

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

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.

If we don't call out folk when they have problematic or undeveloped politics

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.

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

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.

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! 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).

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. :)

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.
