Re: [furries-290] Apology for Being Overly Harsh on Kayfox

But I wish to add something else, more positive I suppose. I noticed, and I do respect the fact that you take ideas as seriously as you do. You can hear a simple idea and see far reaching implications, such as the destruction of a subculture or a society, which is a skill not many people have. Though of course I obviously disagree with some of your premises.

I don't live in the Seattle area anymore, but I felt obligated to reply to this.

"We are largely not there to play favorites"

"Over your short time in the channel I noticed things you said that disturbed me, mainly that you seemed to want to seek out a major based on how much you could make. This appeared corrected by the people in the channel that know alot more about these things than you and I. I also noticed this prevalent attitude that we need furry things for furryness sake. I find this to be the reason for the eventual downfall of the furry fandom. I have seen alot of efforts along these lines that while good intentioned, were merely repeating work otherwise already done, and thusly wasted. The waste of effort, especially the immense amount in todays society, is repugnant to me." 

"As we move forward in the 21st century we as a society are more and more duplicating efforts as corporate interests become entrenched and wall off all access to innovation. While patents of the 19th century described how to make and operate all manner of machinery in intimate detail, the patents of the 21st century are an exercise in trying to grab as many claims as possible while describing the invention in the vaguest terms allowed. This breakdown in the pace of innovation will likely lead to the downfall of the society of man."

"This is duplication of effort that would be better put towards improving the existing community and not towards raping the land we stole from those who came before us"

"You indicated you want to come here, to our home, and divide this community up even more. I will have none of that. Leading the community should be about bringing people together, not about moving them apart."

So you're not there to play favorites. But you play favorites and kick people out if their desires contradict your moral ideals, which seem to be some sort of socialism or communism, combined with a guilt-trip about the our early dealings with the Native Americans, combined with a religious view of community and your role as a prophet in that community.

But hey, if it's your channel, you have the right to do so. I respect inalienable individual rights, which includes the property rights of the owners of the IRC server(s), which they have extended to you in the form of control of your own room on their server. Let's just be honest about it. One of the biggest things that pisses me off is when someone claims to be silencing "hatred" or "bigotry" when they silence my political views on their channel/group/etc (which I acknowledge they have the right to do), while simultaneously and hypocritically spewing their own, more politically correct, actual hatred/bigotry that everyone accepts as morally correct. In this case, you seem to have kicked someone out just because they wanted to make money and had a wild dream of doing something independently on their own that you didn't approve of, because it goes against your social planning. Then justified it with a lot of moral posturing about how he's going against the "greater good". Then claimed that you do not play favorites.
