During my short time here, I made an ass of myself. I started fights, didn't back down, accidentally misgendered someone, and went on a spree of what is essentially harassing green anarchists. I understand if I am not wanted here, and I apologise for everything.
However, I have still been lurking, occasionally, and upon digging deeper into the history of the site, have had my view of what Raddle is completely shifted.
I don't want to bring up old drama that I was not involved in out of context, but I sort of have to for this next bit. I have discovered that at least 3 other accounts besides "ziq" themself all belong to one person. Supposedly the other admins have multiple accounts too. Some of the biggest forums on the site boast 1-2000 subscribers, yet the top posts only have about 50 upvotes. I can't help but believe there is a bit of deception going on here, as well as manipulating conversation through persona accounts.
Raddle was supposed to be an escape from the beuracracy of reddit, as I understood it. An even more radical, satirical, nihilistic anarchist meme page than reddit would allow, with a shoplifting forum and news discussion to boot. Good stuff.
But how many users are really here? Is this just a circlejerk for 15 admins and their alts? Raddle seems completely centralized in the hands of a 3-5 different admins. I could be wrong, but frankly I'm just confused.
Reading old threads I have never seen so much infighting, drama, and near collapses of a community as there is here. It's frankly ridiculous. Why can't everyone stick to one account? Why were excuses being made?
Idk how to finish this. Raddle just seems more like the clubhouse for ziq and their friends rather than what could be gained from other forums... Even if other forums don't deplatfrom as effectively as the mods here do. Idk
