On August 21, 2023, I entered into a dialogue with two users on the RYM website.
My only comment contained quotes from these users.
In particular, I treated RYM ratings with irony (emoticons +).
In response, I received a request to clarify my words.
I was late with the response remark, and I saw a new comment.
It looked strange, the interlocutor was no longer talking to me.
He was trying to convince someone that he didn’t know anything about me.
He also does not support my criticism, because RYM is cool.
It could be assumed that these words are addressed to a third participant.
However, this participant was not long in coming.
His sentences were confusing and also contained excuses.
There was no trace left of the former confidence of the interlocutors.
On the contrary, they looked very frightened.
Moreover, I hastened to reassure everyone with my friendly answer.
However, the comment field did not appear.
I returned to my page, but it was not there.
Instead, the text appeared:
Your account has been permanently suspended.
Reason given by moderator:
Constantly making aggressive posts about the fact that this site doesn’t work exactly the way you personally want it to.
You lost privileges for breaking site standards, and our staff was very polite in trying to explain the issues and help guide you to enter data correctly. In response you were nothing but belligerent and combative, refusing to make the adjustments requested.
It’s pretty clear at this point that RYM is not what you think it is, and you’re not going to force it to change through being aggressive, so maybe you should leave and find some other site. 21 Aug, 2023 at 12:02
In fact, I hardly follow the RYM forums.
And I very rarely leave comments anywhere.
This is especially true of the RYM website, and especially this year.
But on this day, I managed to leave as many as two comments on RYM.
It usually happens when something hits me to the quick.
As a rule, I start with a quote that I support or vice versa.
That day it was about the ratings.
But at first it was due to the improvement of the site.
The comment was about data entry, which the author suggested to improve.
I could not miss the opportunity and recalled my main problem.
I am very grateful for the mass of useful notifications from the administration.
But I was worried that for three years there was no main notice.
When, for what and for how long I was deprived of the right to enter any data.
I attributed it to the wrong input that the program allows.
Also ironically (emoticons +) I wondered why the site didn’t need active users.
Access to the forums I have surprisingly preserved.
I checked this my first comment of the day.
Instead of a comment, there was an inscription - deleted by the moderator.
The comment above, which I implicitly supported, has been changed.
Its author also added an apology.
He asked to be forgiven for bringing up the matter again.
Then I checked my comment regarding the ratings - it was saved.
Obviously, my interlocutors had enough of delaying my reaction.
They most likely already knew how such conversations could turn out.
They went to my page, but there was nothing left of me there.
