So, there I was.
Casually cruising Kosland, looking for something that set off my overtired Muse so that I could grace y'all with my feathered presence, when a horrible, unfathomable thing happened.
You know those two little circles beneath comments?
Suddenly, they were gone, and there was asquare.
I am anything but a square.
It occurs to me that the opposite of "trusted" is "untrusted."
What have I done to betray trust around here?
I can't imagine anything.
Am I a divisive person? Am I an obamabot? A firebagger?
I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and darn it, people like me.
And I'm always so nice to everybody.
I make myself sick sometimes.
why has this been done to me?
I DESERVE BETTER. I HAVE A FIVE-DIGIT UID!
DAMMIT! I HAVE STANDING HERE!
What do I have to do? Go whoring for mojo?
I refuse to do that. I have STANDARDS.
My dKos my dKos why hast thou forsaken me?
This is a mistake. A huge mistake. You'll see.
All this positive energy invested into this community, and this is how I am repaid?
Without, for example, my evenhanded assistance with the vital task of community moderation, the site will be overrun by trolls by the end of the weekend.
METEOR BLADES CANNOT DO IT ALL ALONE.
That's it. I am wounded. Deeply, grievously wounded.
I refuse to post again today until my hard-earned trust is restored to me.
I go now to burn incense and seek purification.
