My Low profile here at the moment is not a sign that I don’t care, I do care very much and I’m deeply upset and saddened that so many wonderful members of this community feel the need to hastily leave in protest. One thing that seems to be common is the claim that legitimate and reasonable protests are being deleted. I have seen posts deleted and in every case there has been a good reason for them to be deleted, we are all intelligent enough to know that there is a significant difference between making a point and being deliberately abusive and derogatory. Yet when those posts which are clearly intended to be offensive or are in clear breach of RB rules are deleted there is a bleating and indignant claim of bias which is totally unjustified.
All over the bubble there are legitimate concerns raised in a manner that is civillised and decent yet still passionate and these posts are not being deleted. When people tell you that legitimate posts are being deleted, ask to be shown proof and you will realise that these posts were out of line and the deletion was probably not unjustified. Each time we repeat these claims of unjustified censorship without checking the facts we add to the misinformation and reduce the likelihood of achieving a satisfactory outcome. There are many legitimate avenues to raise concerns and the reality is that these issues will take some time to resolve.
If you are among those wonderful and caring people who have decided to leave in protest, I ask you to please reconsider and stay here with us as we sort this thing out together.
This is a great community because of the passionate and caring people.
