The rules shift and change depending on who is administrating them to whom. As you can see, the rules of the forum clearly state that I am eligible for at least level 2 membership. At least. Sadly, the day you granted it I actually thought it was some kind of positive affirmation of my placement in the forum community and not a ‘trust level’ I should have been granted years ago - as per the rules. It lasted for a few hours till I received a sudden suspension in an obvious display of petulance and petty misuse of limited power…
I have appreciated the space to discuss an array of topics in off topic, and apart from recent membership on a number of resistance related telegram groups - have not been a subscriber to any other forums. I thought this one was genuinely safe in spite of some of the more unpleasant exchanges I have encountered here. And only ever due to the subject matter - usually concerning the various ways and means utilised by elitist despots in their concerted and contrived effort to totally decimate and subjugate the worlds population. None of this is news to the millions marching for FREEDOM around the world.
We are all under siege. The forum may be a microcosm but it is still a significant platform for international discussion and whilst there were still many people willing to participate in the discussions here it was still worth being in attendance.
Now, unless you’re a member of an elitist clique, the forum is an unwelcoming and hostile environment that fails to encourage debate or intellectual exchange. It is very sad to see and I wonder how many valuable contributors have been systematically squeezed out of any meaningful participation over the years.
For all those who have encouraged debate and inclusivity, my thanks.
For all those who have sought to make the forum into a small club for a select few - your work is done. But you could have just started a WhatsApp group or a telegram group or perhaps even a Facebook group as it is clear that your views would have been thoroughly welcomed by Zuckerberg and entirely congruent with his overall aims and objectives.
The onslaught we are all facing truly demands some kind of unity.
I initially asked to have an editing function restored to 14 days, which is perfectly achievable and in keeping with a level 1 status. My request still stands.
With overall disappointment, but with thanks and best wishes for the future
