PSU can post as often as he likes...
*Steps to mic* Hel....hello??
Oh hi! So yeah, I haven't posted since Stephen pulled his thread shenanigans on me months ago (made a thread in my name to discredit me because he didn't like my criticism with how he was steering the conversations or the site in general). Not out of anger or anything, but I honestly just didn't wanna add anymore fuel, revenue, page views, whatever to that type of behavior. It was a "why even bother?" type of thing.
I personally did think Stephen contributed a lot, and he's a friend of mine as well, but I also can see why the decision was made to perma ban him. I think for every good solid discussion or "man on the ground" thread, there were 10 that were completely off the rails with shitty (and obviously bias) sources that were created as a means to push some hardlined agenda, silence any real debate & keep a narrative going. Any pushback (or even just acknowledgment) of this was met with harsh pile ons (from a select few, which may or may not have been the same person). If you look back in my history, I literally warned him for probably the last two years that this would drive users away & ultimately be the end of the site. Round & round we went, and you know how it goes. I was crazy, I was a conspiracy nut, I was this or that, and it'd just continue on, rinse & repeat. Even though he knew personally none of this was true. So now, here we are.
It was always my feeling that the co-owner of the site should take a more relaxed view to certain topics, to set an example & encourage open discussions. Obviously he didn't do that. So much so that he went to great lengths to defend this behavior with name calling, bans, mud slinging & discrediting campaigns. As him being the co captain of the ship, and the most active poster by far, he never quite got that (or never cared to). Because after all, he was right & you were wrong. Always. I sincerely hope he learns from all this & tries to at least acknowledge this & better himself in this regard. He is a talented & smart guy, just needs to work on a bit of online decorum & not taking things so personal.
