So, this blog entry isn't here for sympathy or anything like that, simply to let the people who know me here where I'll be if they want to keep up with me, and why I'm going.
Last night, early in the morning, I posted an admittedly out of line rant about my thoughts on anti-maskers. It got removed, and that wasn't what annoyed me- it was how I was spoken to in the reason for removal. There's a certain need for firmness that comes from any position of power, but there's a fine line between being firm and being overly aggressive, and the latter of which is what I feel I experienced. But it's not my place to judge the way the mods treat the site's patrons, it's just that it kind of made me realize something.
I really don't do anything here. I don't really talk to anyone consistently, I don't really ask any questions on here anymore, there's other people who are more qualified to answer a lot of the questions that I would answer, it just kind of soaks up time for no reason. And that sort of hurtful phrasing from one of the mods really helped solidify the growing thought in my mind that I'm not really enjoying my time here as much as I was before, and that this is really contributing to my social anxiety and fear of participating in large social functions, contributing to my thoughts that I need to act a specific way for people to like me, etc, which is why I think it's simply best for me to go. If any of you really want to keep up with me, I can give you my Discord in DMs, but I'll probably be deleting my account in a few days and focusing more on stuff that actually makes me happy.
P.S. I am aware you aren't supposed to discuss a moderator's methods, nor their actions. I tried to phrase it in such a way that displays my grief without seeming like an attack on the moderator/questioning their judgement.
