After some consideration, I have decided to leave JM. I know I don't post here a lot, but you ladies have been great, and there are some things going on that just aren't right, and I know I'm not the only one leaving over this.

Apparently, a number of people have decided to start complaining about political siggies. To be honest, the ones complaining, as far as I can tell from conversation, aren't conservatives. However, most of the siggies that are being forcibly removed by administrators, (again, as far as I can tell), are pretty much just the conservative and christian siggies. There are a few liberal ones that have disappeared, but there are a great many siggies that are completely being ignored even though they could be considered to be far more "hateful" than the political and christian ones that are being removed.

Because of this obvious discrimination, as well as the inability to speak my mind most of the time (I choose to keep my mouth shut because I know that a lot of the time speaking my mind will get me banned), I have decided that I don't want to stay in this community any longer. The administrators may do what they like, but what they are doing is "ridding the boards of discrimination", by discriminating. It's silly, and a waste of time. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, yet the people crying about someone else's opinion are the ones getting their way. I just don't want to put up with that.

So, if anyone wants to find me, I'll be on Facebook. I'll still check in occasionally (it will take a while to break the habit ), and I'll still be able to get messages through my pm's for a little while. You can also find me on Facebook under the name Shana Woodman. My avatar here is the same there, so it should be easy.

I'm sorry you're leaving, but I understand. The situation is ridiculous IMO.
