Don’t shoot from the hip
Ok so I am really going on my hols. I asked for permission to quote someone who spoke on behalf of TFN, but unfortunately they think are not happy for me to do that. I thought, dear readers that someone else speaking on behalf of TFN would help you decide. But it seems not.
So I will instead set you a puzzle. Firstly did any of the moderators who are now “the enemy” start out life thinking they would abuse TFN to eventually take a large group of members and leave TFN. To a person the answer is NOT A JOT OF IT. Every single person is now dubbed the enemy was an ardent freecycler. But as they rose through the ranks to moderator and then super-moderator (ie GOA, NGA, Imod etc) they began to see cracks in the organisation. Now if you are in an organisation and you see flaws, what are you to do?
As I see it you have two choices:
- get out
- stay in
To make either choice you probably need to do more research – which implies asking questions.
The core problem with TFN is that when you ask a “question” you are instantly put on moderation, across all groups, and your post is deleted. This is a denial of free speech. It hampers you from making a decision in favour of staying in. And it leads to the paranoia that is TFN today.
To be clear, not a single person from TFN has spoken to the words on this website. Not a single person. Deron has kept silent. Stephanie has kept silent. Gwyn has kept silent. They have not answered the charges here. They have not answered the charges on OIDG. You deserve those answers.
I have seen several posts that have been made by people in support of TFN. Rarely has a single one of them had anything other than invalid assumptions and emotion to back those assertions. All I ask, and I mean it – DO YOUR RESEARCH and GET YOUR FACTS RIGHT.
Don’t take my word for it, instead speak from knowledge gained by proper research rather than from prejudices. And then make your choice.
And now I am actually going on holiday and this blog is officially closed until 12th August. Thank you for reading, but thank you most if you actually do your research and form your own personal judgement rather than simply shooting from the hip.
