Can these guys really be that dense?
Kyoujin's extremely lengthy reply there is interesting, I think, because it illustrates the attitude of the FA staff who are loyal to Dragoneer and stick around down the years, and of people who relentlessly defend/brown-nose Dragoneer.
He really is that dense and repeatedly blames "conspiracy theories", declares that there just aren't enough people willing to volunteer as admins because of "trolls" and mindlessly defends FA's set up without ever questioning how Dragoneer let it get like that, and simply asserts that FA will always be as bad as it currently is, and flatly states at the end that he won't respond to any further comments because what he's said is the truth and that is that:
There's not enough people who truly want to help, or they aren't willing to step out into the crossfire because they're afraid if they help, they'll be targeted by trolls [...]
These conspiracy theorists will never be satisfied. People just LOVE to play the blame game. That's why people attack the site and start conspiracies [...] they just make up their own conspiracies. Hell, I've heard plenty of ridiculous conspiracies about the site [...]
IMVU is not going to ruin the site. Our new system is going to improve our huge issues with tickets, and things will be much better. However, it takes time.. and sadly, people aren't patient, and again, people like to point fingers and create drama. That's how it always is, and how it always will be.
[...] nothing I, or anyone else says, will change how people want to think.
[...] If you want to reply to my comment, that's fine, just please don't take anything out of context. I may or may not read the response, but either way I probably wont' respond [...] There's not much more reason for me to respond again because, I put up the truth
Kyoujin's ignorant claims about people being afraid to volunteer for FA is contradicted by evidence such as this staff recruitment journal where hundreds of people demonstrate interest and state they've applied and no one says "Gee, I'd love to apply but I'm afraid of trolls":http://www.furaffinity.net/journal/5122085/
I think the repeatedly invocation of conspiracy theories demonstrates his absolutely contempt for, ignorance of and disconnect from the FA community and his bootlicking loyalty to Dragoneer. There are so many documented fuck ups, failures, lies &c. of Dragoneer documented in this forum and all Koujin can do is to invoke conspiracy theories and blame people for wanting to be disgusted with how FA is run, as if Dragoneer's constant fuck ups were non-existent:
"nothing I, or anyone else says, will change how people want
Sadly, If he ever becomes aware of this post I believe he'd simply take it as "ugh, those damn dirty trolls hatin' on the FA staff and inventing conspiracy theories" and never stop to think that Dragoneer doesn't have to run FA as he does.
Last thought I had: If one is talking about conspiracy theories, surely Dragoneer's selling FA to IMVU and keeping it a secret for several months is closer to a genuine conspiracy (against the community and users) than anything anyone else has come up with.
