Banned from AVEN, so I came here

Postby AgentPleakly » Mon Sep 05, 2016 6:44 pm

So I was banned from AVEN because someone was being a bigoted jackass and I called them on it. Apparently, the mods care more about preserving an asshole's "freedom of speech" and damn anyone who has the gall to object. So much for being an "open and accepting" site.

That's a complaint that I hear pretty often around here.

Sorry that happened to you, but welcome to Apositive. :) It's going to seem dead around here compared to AVEN, but you would have to do something horrendous to get banned. In fact, I don't think I've ever banned anybody other than spammers. (No mercy for those cockroaches!) I don't do warnings either.

Hopefully some of your AVEN friends know that you're here? Apos has been a temporary home away from home for some AVENites in the past.
Feel free to rant or grieve or whatever helps.

I left Aven a year ago. No regrets.

Can't give precise details but there were good reasons - remember there are two sides to every story.

Aven is basically asexual tumblr at this point. Welcome to Apositive, we're a little more open here.

Well if you were banned from AVEN it means you are possibly well adjusted enough to not fit on with those misfits and outcasts. The place reminds me alot of Reddit/chanboards in that the most toxic people fit in, dominate the internal hierarchy and make the more centered people feel like they don't belong with heckling, surly insults, down-votes, etc.
