I'm sorry, do we have a problem? I specifically wasn't going to participate in this thread as I had recently put out a statement on the discord but have literally no desire to justify myself to people who pretend to know me or the specificity of my lived experiences.

Please, you go meet your ideal thread, "challenge" them as much as your gratitude and appreciation for your experience allows, and then read whiny nonsense from random people on the internet that dox and call you by name about how I didn't do enough to make /sffg/ the fucking gentle coddling experience you wanted it to be (an unrealistic expectation from an eccentric collective or anons, if I ever imagined one).

And I'm not just picking on you but, as I ask my children, do you want my negative attention or my positive attention.

And for posterity my statement on Discord in answer to the question:

>On unofficial word, we've plotted more crap posting (which he very much likes as to do) than any actual conversation... I don't know, five to sevenish false flag plot lines and blaming it in American-posting (around the time of 10am NYT time). Whether or not anyone is interested in actually reading seems to be a completely different story.

I don't know is author some kind of leftshit misandrist, or some chronic coomer, or is he some retarded tranny, or if he is just incapable writing male characters that would continually participate in story and plot.

Seriously janny, it doesn't end until I get what I want, which is the same thing everyone wants really: an sffg where we can discuss sffg.
My shitting here does not end with a global ban 4 times and then a temporary ban as some retarded appeal to my manners or whatever.
it ends, when the bakkerfaggot ry is removed.
whatever value may have ever existed in discussing those works has long since been exhausted.
We're all sick of it, so instead of being my little bitch for the evening, chasing my posts in a futile effort to ban me, the symptom, you can instead waste your efforts on the cause of the problem.
You already know I am not the first, and that I will not be the last, there are others doing it right beside me that I can see.

What the fuck? They're not going to ask him/her what it's like being a thousand years old, or being a robot, or what kind of cool super tech he knows about, or explain the part about aliens killing the rest of humanity and that the chances of finding them are?

but then it falls apart with lame/unrealistic love interests, antagonists you can see plotting a mile away, and an underwhelming finale. the last 2 books of the series were semi-interesting, but it got pretty boring and felt like most of it could have been wrapped up in book 2.

>And things went wrong, and time passed, and there were a couple of small wars back home that meant various members of the crew were technically blood enemies for months or years at a time, but it’s very hard to sustain that kind of nonsense when you’re zipping through the asteroid belt with Mars behind you and Jupiter ahead, and no government had managed to get a political officer on board. The only bit of rampant nationalism was Eda Ostrom, a geologist, who taught everyone Danish through sheer force of personality and taking double shifts, so that her native tongue was our lingua franca by the time we arrived. The rest of the long-running edutaintment was Jain Diaz from the NASA contingent teaching us considerate use of pronouns with sufficient patience and determination that ze even had the most hardcore Russians respecting hir life choices. Ze was an indicator of just how much looser things had got in the States after the fighting, which I suppose is some small consolation. By the time the interplanetary satnav told us we’d reached our destination, then, we were fully up on nonbinary etiquette and everyone’s messages home were peppered with incomprehensible Danish slang.

All these people do is bitch and moan when filters already exist. Except that's it's harder to filter bitching posts, which in turn becomes the thread's spam.

I didn't make picrel, but it pretty much sums these people. They enjoy the bitching and moaning so no point engaging with them.
