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 This is stupid bird site shit tbh, if they're so interested in creating fake dramas they should go back to the bird site. 🙄😮💨
@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.
@nathan I apologize for:
Calling out a supposed privilege that wasn't there
Just shitting over the instance with this thoughtless post over a rule that still isn't optimal
Not reaching out beforehand at all
@kescher I appreciate that. I will take a look at adjusting the wording of the rule, but right now with other people trying to make the situation worse I'm just going to let things cool down first.
