Is it too simplistic to suggest that if you aren't finding what you want here and believe the people who contribute have "closed minds" then maybe you could consider starting your own site?
It might be a more constructive way of proceeding in a positive way, rather than in a negative complaining way.
Did you not understand that I was in contact with the staff off-forum?
The other issue is the site radically changed over the last few months and this is not the first complaint put forth on the site. I was the one that simply said what was being exchanged via PM and other places that this is an LOLCAT site. Even the thread titles are dangerously near the LOLCAT territory. It was great in the beginning, mostly made so by the two now-gone moderators. They made an effort to make sure people were steered towards equal attention and participation. Now I see what they might have been trying to prevent.
Also, if you think I'm not participating, look at the post history. That appears to be a common excuse right there.
So yeah. It is simplistic, especially since I was asked by staffers to speak about why I left before I did.
It's also naive to think that if I go, there won't be more threads from people. I'm not the first poster on this topic, am I?
Nothing degrading was intended by the title, snake. Myself and the other Moderators all are quite open with each other in letting each other know about concerns, complaints, suggestions and the like. I'm sorry that you've misread me. That is one of the pitfalls of writing anything, as it can easily be misinterpreted.
Fair enough and I appreciate the clarification.
