So, I found an archive link: https://web.archive.org/web/20190514134107/https://raddle.me/f/Confession/76265/i-don-t-know-what-reactionaries-gets-the-wall-mean

I honestly think browse was arguing in good faith even if the arguments weren't great.

And perhaps I am being unfair to you. You may be too jaded to know how to engage with a young tankie - i mean, you have easily 20 years of expectations of what they will say next; whereas, they think this is some bright new, beautiful concept they've found.

Edit: well, shit, that sounded condescending. I'm not good at commenting quickly. Here's the thing: I respect you a lot, ziq. You usually have the more reasoned head. You have talked me down before. I just think this escalated quicker than I would have expected. And knowing there's a history of other stuff makes it make a bit more sense. So thanks for stating your side. I still think it was harsh. And it's true: I have seen harsher stuff said about you on this site and found it out of line and ridiculous.

I read through the archive and I don't get how this is bullying at all. I was actually restrained considering they were claiming I don't know what authority and vanguard means. They made bad arguments and those arguments were poked full of holes. That's what a debate is.

Some parts, I thought, were. Starting here:

https://raddle.me/f/Confession/76265/-/comment/121825

and the meta_ thread calling them out specifically. (And yes, I know you've been called out worse in meta_ and I think it's bullshit every time)

Seeing the full thread has made me feel like it was less severe because they did seem to be taking it well for a while. I'm very glad that I found the full thread.

Before she deleted all her comments, she replied in the meta_ thread saying "lol!!"

She then deleted 5 minutes later.

I think this is being blown way out of proportion.

If I can't call out vanguardism, states and gulags on raddle, idk that I even want to say anything any more.

I'm not saying we can't do that and you don't need to be passive-aggressive with me to make a point.

If what you say is true about how they took the meta_ thread, then perhaps you are right and I apologize for making a mess of things.

With them gone, however, we obviously won't know for sure.

Sorry if I've upset folks. It really looked very bad, and I did try to ask in Meta chat first.
