Yeah fuck this drama. One person misinterpreted a .lol rule, then a larger account picked it up and went on a rant, and then other people started complaining about it. None of these people contacted me, mentioned me, asked for clarification, nothing.
It's one thing to question why a rule exists, it's another to rant about it without actually doing anything to get it changed *despite* misinterpreting it, and something completely else to suggest I'm a middle/upper class person who hates the poor.
I grew up in a household where we had to choose between heating and buying food. Watering down milk to make it last longer. Never having new clothes. I never even had a birthday party because my parents could never afford it. I never went on holiday, not even within my own country.
I understand what it's like to not have any money. To call me privileged in the sense that I've never had to worry about finances is completely wrong. I still worry about money but I still give money to the homeless.
@nathan I'm not super active here but I appreciate what you do, I know what's involved in hosting something like this. There are a lot of people in spaces like these that only want to "score points" by tearing down people instead of working with them. Stay strong and fuck the haters. Take the time off you need. Burn it down if you have to.
