Okay, I'm not real worried about my wording in this post considering it is very likely to get removed. Along with the rest of the posts against BYOND.
If you didn't know the story i'll recap it as fair as I possinly can, then state my opinion:
Neblin, a BYOND Member, subscriber of Silkwizards NEStalgia, and an advertiser of BYOND. Recently was banned from NEStalgia with no reason to him.
He made a post on BYOND warning people that Silkwizard bans players(even subscribers) who get on his badside for no reason.
I myself am banned from NEStalgia, no idea why.
I've read his BYOND Post; it does not at all outright insult anybody or any one group. This post was then removed from the BYOND front page without any reason to Neblim.
See a trend here..?
Neblim then made a second post asking the BYOND Moderation why of which his post was removed. Then his second post was removed.
This sent the BYOND Community into an outrage, saying "Why does Silk get to unsult while we cannot voice our honest opinion?". Don't get me wrong, there were people for BYOND aswell, "BYOND has the right to do whatever in the hell it wants" etc.
Masterdan in this outrage has decided to completely stop supporting BYOND. Neblim has done the same.
There are plenty of posts going on about now on the Blog page for both sides.
Now this is my opinion and my sole opinion alone:
I think that the blog posts should be treated FAIRLY. I've read plenty of Silkwizards blog posts where he outright insults players. This is somehow okay with the BYOND Admins.
Neblins Blog post should have not been hidden and should be brought back up.
I'm sure if the Admins simply said sorry and put his post back up everything would go back to its normal boring self.
DM is a great tool and I have great respect for Dan, Tom, Lummox JR, and the other creators of the system. But you guys seriously need to keep your admins under check.
