Well, I would like suggest something.
I hope you know that I totally support free speech, don’t you? I personally don’t have any problems of hearing opinions that are different than mine.
But when you give people the free speech opportunity, then make sure to put lines on it so things won’t get out of hands, if you know what I mean.
I’ll elaborate and try to explain myself so you understand my point:
Since this place should be positive and drama-free, I think it’d be better if people here will not talk and/or trash others behind their backs. From here, the word “free” on the phrase “free speech” becomes to “hate”. Trashing people behind their back doesn’t make us any different from other people from Episode forums who are known as “toxic”.
And hence, I think that in order to make the place more positive, we should keep things cool when stating our opinions or criticizing others’ actions.
I agree that maybe there are some things happening on Episode forum that cannot be ignored, and I don’t have any problems with people speaking their mind about Episode, but man, isn’t it more than enough to talk about what people do wrong? We want to spread love and positivity here, not the opposite.
And just saying in general - make sure that people here don’t say about others anything that is definitely a hate speech (by calling them the N-word, for instance).
I honestly don’t wish to see people pointing out this place and saying “here! That’s ShanniiWrites forums’ real face. There’s a lot of toxicity, people there are only shading others too much”, or other bad things.
Believe it or not, I don’t wish it to happen. And that’s why I’m saying all of this.
After all, you are the one who said that we members are responsible to make the forum a good place too, aren’t you?
So as a member of this forum, I’m saying, let’s stop trashing people and talking about how wrong they are, and instead, let’s engage in making this place better. I know that we can do much better. We should not low ourselves to others’ level. We shouldn’t waste our time talking about people who don’t interest us at all.
So please you take what I’m saying into consideration with understanding.
