I am going to be stepping away from Canadian Content for anywhere between three or four weeks. The conduct of debates and discussions has degenerated from the point where it once was, to where one has to think twice before submitting a post for fear of being insulted and ridiculed, rather than having your ideas criticised. Maybe this is, I would hope, temporary — and therefore such a practice may have dispersed by the time I decide to return.
And perhaps moreso than¹ that, it would appear that my presence on these forums appears to have become more a point of contention than anything constructive — I tend to have a practice of pointing out where I would think infractions of the terms of service or forum rules have occurred, in the hopes that issues can be resolved without resorting to the intervention of Administrators or Moderators. However, I am now being accused of using this practice as a sort of suppression technique, or to be harbouring some sort of secondary agenda; my character is being thrown into question, and that is something that I am not obligated to stand for.
For now, I am done with Canadian Content.
I wish everyone a good month.
