Imagine my surprise when I clicked over to an interesting piece on Jezebel, wrote a reply to someone whose viewpoint I agreed with...and found that I was an approved commenter over there. Any of you who have seen my posts probably would be as shocked as I was (and still am) about this.
Meanwhile, after being a visitor to this site since the beginning and a user for about the last 6-7 years, I still cannot get one single FP writer to approve my comments or even acknowledge them. I’m about ready to call it quits, I used to enjoy that place, but it’s clear that they aren’t interested in the way things used to be. I certainly don’t need it to survive, and god knows there’s more important uses of my time than Jalopnik. But, there were many people I had gotten to know who I now cannot interact with, since my comments many times don’t even show up. I enjoyed the community at one point in time, now I no longer can and it feels rather empty.
I still enjoy Oppo though, even though I don’t get a chance to engage much with the people here. I’m hoping someone from the other side sees this and has the fortitude to explain this, otherwise I suppose I’ll just become a casual Oppo reader and not much else.
I hate drawing attention to myself more than almost anything in the world, but I feel this isn’t about me, and there’s several others who feel this way. And we already lost KDS due to the same type of behavior from the FP writers. I cringe at the thought of this continuing. Hopefully this pseudo-censorship thing they’ve got going on can be fixed.
