This will be a short article. I'd bet that if everyone who claims that there is a conspiracy on Newsvine to silence them would just fucking leave Newsvine, those of us with common sense would have a lot more fun here. The other day, I read an article from someone on the right claiming that NV was being mean to them. Today, I read an article from someone on the left who claims NV is being mean to them. What the fuck is this? Romper Room?
No one has to kiss anyone's ass here. If you go on an article when you KNOW everyone there will chew you up and spit you out, you have no one to blame but yourself because you chose to go into the lion's den. If you write/seed an article that you KNOW will attract jerks, what the hell is there to cry about? Back your shit up and keep it moving because jerks are a fact of internet life.
These "poor me" articles amuse the hell out of me. Joining NV is a CHOICE, not a mandate. You have two options upon joining NV: Handle adversity like an adult or handle it like a spoiled ass brat. Your choice. But if you choose the latter path and decide that you don't want to play anymore, just leave without the drama of writing an article about leaving. Just fucking beat it.
