I made some public statements last week about starting new OWS forums for us to use should the bot attack continue to suppress some posters on this site. I believe that the attack has been stopped by the mods after the DDOS, correct me if I'm wrong. I said that if the attacks weren't stopped by Monday that I would look at alternatives for us to have a civil discourse about OWS and have a place where we can plan Occupy related or inspired activities.
So I ask you, of the non-trolls on this site, how many of you are happy with the boards as they stand today? Consider these points:
Is it easy to organize a local protest, activity, or otherwise on these boards?
Have you been bullied as a result of having expressed opinions that a few people do not agree with?
Do you feel that posting on here has helped you personally connect to this movement?
Do you feel that posting on these boards has improved the situation in your local Occupy groups, or whatever Occupy activity you are participating in?
Do you feel that this board is a welcoming environment for civil discussions about Occupy?
I have met a lot of great people on these boards. I have also ran into a lot of trolls, bots, and other entities that have made my time here less productive. If anyone else shares these sentiments, please let me know what you think we should do going forward. The point is, if you are not happy here, there are reasonable avenues that we can take to fix things. You don't have to endure the BS that polluted this forum, but I need to know who wants to do what before I humor any of these alternatives.
PS trolls: I have a few projects in the works that none of you are going to stop, no matter what you say or do. Have fun wasting your time censoring me ;)
