If you found this blog from a non-Fark-related source, SKIP THIS POST, it will make no sense.
Given the recent events at Fark, I want to just make a few things clear.
I'm not in agreement with the mods about asking me to stop posting, nor do I think that it even succeeded in doing what they wanted. However, I can see their point of view and I'd like to expand on some of the things people are saying.
1. I was asked to leave. I wasn't banned, and I decided to honor the request because they asked nicely and they clearly were not doing it for political reasons or because they wanted to protect FR or anything. My accounts are still active there.
2. Right wing trolls at Fark are banned on a regular basis. Back before I started using my image, every once in a while a mod would read my wall of derp and assume I was a right wing troll and ban me for a day or two, for saying the offensive things that Freepers say. As far as I could tell, no one really noticed I was gone, and I drew the conclusion that this happens to the Black Animals and Bevets and whatnot, we just don't really notice it.
3. Asking the same right wing derp brigade to stop permanently would be a lot more like FR than asking me to leave. After spending the time I've spent at FR, I can honestly say that I believe some of our local nutsos are not trolls. Obviously some are, but with the absolutely awful things some people say sincerely, Poe's Law applies and I think it would be difficult to say "yes, Bevets is definitely trolling and not just posting his opinion."
Again, I agree with most of my supporters here that the mods made the wrong call, but I'm going to abide by it and I don't think they did it in bad faith.
On the other hand, and I hope there's a mod reading this, I think it's ridiculous that they're deleting posts that reference me in greenlit threads, especially the one from FR. If they really want to end threadjacking about me, then they need to let Farkers discuss it somewhere. Otherwise my name is just going to keep showing up in threads for months.
Also, at least two times since I was asked to stop, I've seen someone post a series of Free Republic quotes in a politics thread with the intro "With apologies to Freep Impact"; those posts were not deleted and users discussed them at length. If I'm not allowed to post quotes from FreeRepublic, I don't see why others should be allowed to do so.
If you guys have any questions, please leave them in the comments.
