R/MICRONATIONS (DM) – A Redditor yesterday called for a boycott of the MicroWiki and of the MicroWiki forums in response to the administration of the organization being, in his eyes, dictatorial.
“The forums have no freedom of speech and are an absolute dictatorship,” /u/PorrRepublic insisted, denouncing the moderators who he had earlier referred to as having “taken over” accoutns belonging to micronations that had been kicked off the forums, “hijack[ing]” them, in fact.
However, the attempt at protest was shot down almost immediately by the /r/micronations community, currently running at 0 votes at position #6 on the list, with only 24 hours on the clock. The commenters who responded, numbering among which were Austenasia (though the minister behind the account is unclear). the account asking if PorrRepublic could “give some sort of evidence for these claims?” He went on to point out that “otherwise – and especially with the title of this post being in all caps – it looks suspiciously like wild ravings.”
The other comments were all in a very similar vein. “As a frequenter of those forums, I’ve seen no evidence of this happening,” was Prince of Beacon City James Frisch’s response. “…Until I hear the name of nations that have been suspended and see evidence, I won’t be taking these allegations seriously,” remarked the Herbetrean Federation. “I, too, have seen no evidence of the allegations you claim,” came Horatio Eden, Whestcorean Mememaster-General’s, rejoinder.
Ultimately, what significance will this series of events have on the MicroWiki community?
Probably not a lot, but it’s something to report on, at least.
