Every one of you I see I recognize and it's like a knife in the gut.

Please at least wait and see if things change. IT IS TOO SOON TO KNOW. Wait at least to see what the choices are for other places for goons.

Please consider

Yeah you'd think with the biggest dramabomb to ever hit the forums/entire site they'd at least stick around to see what the aftereffects are. It's not like anyone can take their money back from Lowtax or affect if he takes a payout to walk away so they may as well see how this all ends.

Of course it sucks that it's all come down to this but figuratively cutting your own throat does nothing except affect you.

i tried to tell burt multiple times, gently caress modding the forums. just get rid of it and become a regular poster. this was when FYAD was constantly loving with him like ever single day, and he was going berserk over it, i mean honestly it seemed like it was really messing up his life and making him miserable, but he just couldn't let go of it.

None of them are Lowtax, who is still allowed to post and as of this most recent weekend still does

Today's perma was a daily poster on Scarboil and a frequent poster on Kiwifarms in the SA related threads.

Has been for years.

It's still Lowtax's website, don't be stupid.

personally okay with the Domestic Abuse Cover-Upper having bad things happen to him, but that is just one goon's humble opinion

the implications of that metaphor have been severely weakened since finding out that the participants were all asked if they would like to participate in an experiment as prison guards. instead of the findings being about power leading corruption it turns out more like just people who are already assholes will be assholes to an even greater extent if given the chance

True, but if you're referring to the PK thread in QCS, it sure sounded like Lowtax only stuck his head in to be defiant to everybody about ever coming back at all, right down to the "until everybody apologizes" part. It seems as close to a self-perma as we're likely to get until JoY takes over.

Dude still has the keys to the place and is only accomplishing making himself look worse every time he sticks his miserable head in. Once the sale's complete I expect Jeffrey's first official action will be to lock Lowtax out. It can't go down any other way because if there's any whiff of things not going that way everyone will jump ship.

Plus Lowtax HAS to be aware that the ship is going down at this point. He wouldn't even be considering the sale otherwise. If he relents and says to hell with it all it's only going to have negative consequences for him. There's no way he's that oblivious to the realities of what's going on, even with going on that MRA podcast and claiming what he's claimed it's still not the first time eyebrow-raising stuff has happened, and even then the poo poo that went down with LadyAmbien and him running off to Utah...ah, nevermind.

Anyway, there's got to be a part of his brain that's contemplating what happens if he stays and what he does after and what could his mind's eye possibly see? A shitload of MRAs and incels coming in to replace all the departures? That ain't gonna happen.

I care. No matter what this is a big shake up, either here with no Lowtax or elsewhere. The more left at the end the more likely posting will be fun and interesting. Reddit REALLY sucks and Twitter too
