I'm tired of being the bad guy when making decisions that don't agree with some.
This last round was when a mod came to me and told me not to say anything and then revealed some straight up site TOS violations that could have gotten SF shut down(meaning; No slavefarm for anybody!) which put me in a position i needed to act upon immediately.
We can't rely on hearsay, as the problem issue can drag on in discussions, etc. I asked the other mod to report it in mod chat even though it was only hearsay. I felt after this that this issue will in fact drag out.
At that point, I made a decision to go straight to the source. I got everything validated. I copied and pasted the dialog and shared with the mod team. Within an hour the problem was taken care of, and the site protected.
But this act did not go unpunished. I was chastised soon after. I won't apologize for protecting the site.
So at the end of the day on the farm... Not only does one "clique" dislike me, but the opposition "clique" as well.
I guess there is no forgiveness for me, i shall stay a hermit.
