A few months ago, I said I was packing to leave because of the culture of abuse plaguing behind the scenes. I had been preparing to leave, but as the abusive guard left their posts or departed from the site, my plans halted. For the past two weeks, I have been visiting this forum more and more. Today, I'm giving this place one more chance. This place has been an online home for me for far too long, and I'm not gonna jump ship yet.
Now, I'm going to repeat what I wrote in that blog here. Poniverse (specifically, much of the old guard), your actions were absolutely reprehensible. They breach fandom and affect real life. To call it an "internal matter" suggests you have something to hide. You were a lawsuit waiting to happen. The lack of transparency makes it impossible for me to trust the administration as a whole. "Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me" applies here. Poniverse, even though the old guard's gone, hold yourself accountable, or another exodus will likely happen again. This time, I won't stick around.
