So, I'm back, to a degree. My hiatus was for just under a year, and to be honest, my feelings for Gaia are still pretty lukewarm, at best. I can't sit and think about all the goings-on last year without getting angry still, which would seem to be a good indicator that I'm still not ok with it.

My anger is sort of boiling over into everyday use of the site however, since I still do report on a lot of violations I catch while I'm in the forums. Of course, the reports get read, handled, warnings go out, and the reports are closed. Sometimes, in the interface used, the mods will send out a response to the reporter, but the response (9 times out of 10) is either a canned response or a mildly altered canned response. I didn't like to send these out to reporters because...well, they're kind of impersonal. It wasn't even uncommon to get a slightly miffed response from people when they got one, sort of being of the mind that you'd do better sending a personal thank you or nothing at all. I sort of find myself sharing this sentiment now, after all the s**t that happened. Further, it almost feels like I'm being mocked.

Yes, that's paranoid and pretty egotistical, but like I said..I'm still angry. I know it wouldn't be difficult, and in fact it might be a matter of course depending on my report, for the mods to look up my record. At that point, knowing what they know, and sending that anyway seems sort of like poking a bear in the eye. All I have to say is that if I keep getting the canned responses I'm going to have responses of my own, and they probably won't be friendly....and they'll be just as canned as the mod's "thank you" sent to me.

And now I have to step away from my computer lest I get too angry...again.
