Yeah fuck this drama. One person misinterpreted a .lol rule, then a larger account picked it up and went on a rant, and then other people started complaining about it. None of these people contacted me, mentioned me, asked for clarification, nothing.

It's one thing to question why a rule exists, it's another to rant about it without actually doing anything to get it changed *despite* misinterpreting it, and something completely else to suggest I'm a middle/upper class person who hates the poor.

I grew up in a household where we had to choose between heating and buying food. Watering down milk to make it last longer. Never having new clothes. I never even had a birthday party because my parents could never afford it. I never went on holiday, not even within my own country.

I understand what it's like to not have any money. To call me privileged in the sense that I've never had to worry about finances is completely wrong. I still worry about money but I still give money to the homeless.

@nathan I apologize for:

  • Calling out a supposed privilege that wasn't there
  • Just shitting over the instance with this thoughtless post over a rule that still isn't optimal
  • Not reaching out beforehand at all

@kescher I appreciate that. I will take a look at adjusting the wording of the rule, but right now with other people trying to make the situation worse I'm just going to let things cool down first.
