I would love to get feedback! 🙂 I know it’s unconventional and all that.
My idea was to post this ad in the Craigslist forum for whatever city I would be interested in living in. (That, so far, included Los Angeles; Portland, Oregon; and Austin, Texas.) Well, it kept getting mysteriously deleted by moderators. I’m following up on the CL forums to see why and if I can post it in a way that will allow it to stay up. That is, predictably, a frustrating experience. 🙂 Dealing with moderators who employ arbitrary guidelines tends to be that way. Everyone is so uptight!!! I swear to god. What the fuck. People need to loosen up. As if the way things are done leads to orgasmic outcomes. I think a lot of reexamination needs to take place in this society if we are to make it much further. It might be too late. Which is why I am tempted to take my remaining cash and camp out in Las Vegas until the end times. 🙂
Really, though, computer algorithms should have already completely replaced human moderators. Human moderators are way too inconsistent in their behavior. Especially when they are volunteers or poorly paid amateurs. I don’t care if it’s Wikipedia, Reddit, Craigslist, or whatever. You see this behavior we are witnessing from Facebook, Twitter, Google/YouTube, with their reckless, haphazard banning of people for this and that, pretending that it follows some timeless logic or wisdom. It does not. It is provincial, short-sighted, cowardly, inhumane, illogical, baseless — just arbitrary. Just because a table full of people agree on something doesn’t mean it isn’t complete bullshit. There’s no philosophy, no principled decision-making, no conviction, no reason. It’s all PR and whatever sounds okay to common folk.
