>>614>you're being judged for being a dick to a peer for no benefit
I was told I should be grateful for not being fired immediately after appleman bought the site, why should I be grateful appleman acted in his best interests? That's not a kindness.
>You were wrong about ethics
You or someone else told me they didn't want to hear about ethics, so I didn't get into it. But I can assure you>I got mad, therefore it's wrong
is not how this works.
>You were in charge of maintaining the wall you were defacing.
This is where the whole me being a vandal thing falls apart: if it was my wall, I couldn't have vandalized it in the first place.
Either way, acting like changing the links for 1 hour makes me some kind of sinner in the eyes of the lord is ridiculous.
>you're relying on the comparison.
I'm not. please read the article I linked. if it weren't called authoritarian thinking, it would be wrong for the same reasons.
>you lost track of what we're arguing about
I'm not sure how I can lose track of what we're arguing about, which you identify as making 2 websites called lainchan, while simultaneously having a poor justiification for doing that. Either I don't know, or I don't have a good argument. You can't have both.
>twisted definition of community
the simple fact is that a community isn't one of the platforms it uses. If nobody used applechan, if nobody used our site, if nobody used sushichan, what would they be? nothing. I realize that, appleman realizes that, our users realize that, but you don't seem to realize that.
Now, if we're going to stop conflating the two, what you're really saying is that our platform hurts your platform. I'm not gonna deny that. We've created a competitor, which offers a better service, so now you fear losing users. Except applechan was losing users the entire time, and the whole community would continue losing users if we hadn't stepped in and made this. applechan
would actually have no users at all, and not exist, if it weren't for one of our admins walking appleman through the site restoration after the site got wiped. It Post too long. Click here to view the full text.
