Was banned/deleted for posting something 'spiteful,' though i have no idea what or even where it was. Could have been the Atheist forum, Religion forum, Christain forum, or Evolution Forum. Could also have been a review comment on Empress Theresa in an exchange with the author. I don't even know if _I_ was spiteful, or if it was quoting someone else's spite...

I don't think it's a concerted effort on Amazon's part to reduce atheist posters, though. I suspect, from how i've been treated as an author with books on Amazon, that they outsource their moderation like telemarketers and no one really moderates their moderators. Just my theory.

I also post on TalkFreethought and recognize a few names here and there...

Hi, Missiletowe. Welcome to TTA!

They probably outsourced their moderation to Pakistan.

He wasn't fired. HR sent him to a class on remedial thinking or some damn thing. He's the colleague whose salary was frozen until mine could catch up. I'm sure there were no hard feelings or anything...

In Canada, such an event would've required calling in the Industrial Health and Safety for an investigation. It would've resulted in fines for the company.

Glad to hear there were no lasting effects.

"Spiteful" seems to be code for, "We didn't like your post, but aren't going to explain why."

You didn't go through what an entire group of us did.

RE: Amazon Refugee Roll Call
So how do you Amazonians like it here versus at Amazon?

Comparatively, people are stuck in the mud at Amazon. It's a troll-infested swamp.

This place is so much better in so many ways that I now wonder why I took so long to look elsewhere. My imagination failed me.

Probably the forum name. It is a little off-putting and patronizing. Like "What? There's only one of you?" off-putting.

Actually, I thought all forums were pretty much the same. So I'm only here because Mary started the ball rolling. Thanks Mary!

I wish I could accept your thanks, but it wasn't me. My memory (which can get dicey) says it this place was Gwaithmir's recommendation.

For those who don't bother with the Amazon fora, we're calling TTA "the other place" over there. No need to leave a trail.
