Ugh. <==that's what I'm feeling right now. Lemme rant a little, kay?
So...as rather few of you know, the staff here makes $0 for the work we put in for maintaining NU/NUF. We are mods because we genuinely like this place. Now I've had rough history here on NUF. Been involved in a lot of drama. Even had a Parth sucks thread made about me and my profile page tarnished multiple times. One time, I think I fell into depression for a week or so, because every time I would go online, I would feel like there was like bags of sand in my lungs...Anyways, I got better, crustier I guess. I get annoyed easily, but there are very few things that truly infuriate me.
Any assault on the integrity of me or the staff here. As I've been here for almost 2 years, I have gotten to know my coworker fairly well. They are some of the best human beings I've had the pleasure of knowing. However, ever since this bullshit drama popped up between Qidian and Wuxiaworld, a vocal minority of the community has began to suspect us of siding with Qidian or having ulterior motives behind not banning Qidian and Wuxiaworld outright. Now most people (with a brain) can see we are doing neither. We're not getting into that gutter fight. We have done what we can on the NU front, and on NUF, we've always allowed debate and discussion about matter important about the community. If we were paid off by Qidian on Wuxiaworld, we'd be censoring threads, deleting posts, which we haven't done unless if the post was like, "Fuck your grandmother" or something.
Anyways, I know most people either don't care or probably don't think we're on the dark side, but...it still hurts when I've been working and investing my time into this community for free, and in return I have to deal with this garbage on a regular basis.
Sigh, I needed to vent a little.
