I should start off by disclosing the obvious: Yes, regular users - even mods - will never know what admins go through. Yes, admins have to make tough choices that are unpopular. Yes, you guys know a lot more about a decision than you?re willing to disclose. Now, I apologize, but I have to be forthright because this doesn?t appear to make any sort of sense. I have to respectfully ask that you help me understand the logic. I?ll hold back what I want to say and reserve most of my judgement until after I hear some type of explanation. I think it?s wise to at least wait for a response before making any sort of rush to action. I would?ve just PMed the administrators for an outright explaination, but I?m not the only one that wants an answer to this. I know I?m coming at you in a rather bold fashion with the entitlement that I deserve some type of explanation. I realize I don?t deserve anything and you guys reserve the right to make decisions, but this is one of those things that?s bigger than me and your decisions. This isn?t one of those things where you make a decision and go, ?Okay, what?s next?? You do what you feel you have to do, but my word of advice would be to give it to us straight. We can have a much more civil conversation if we can be respectful and transparent. I don?t want to play theater for five pages about how you don?t talk about user bans or demotions or how it?s ?us vs. you?. It?s not a ban and I?m sure the user would waive any confidentially on the situation anyway. I want to be respectful guys, I really do, which is why I?m encouraging you to just get it all out there now and not toy around. Stand by it. If we can get straight to the point we can have a much better conversation, but we?re going to be having a conversation either way, so let?s make it good.
