Al, you know you are my main mate.

I admire your writing, look up to you

and have learned a lot


But damn, you sure know how to piss Amy off


I, myself, have a right to be upset about AFF being closed

I have paid most of their web hosting for two years

and have the place paid up till next May

I did this for our little community of friends and misfits

So we could all share

a bit of ours lives together


Y'all get to do as you wish

Myself, I hope things will calm down

at least over there

Should they bring it back


Just a thought

Larry

smh...they didn't even post the reason they shut it down. No reason! My gawd  :GA:

Massive overreaction and a real kick in the teeth for someone like Skyblue.

Is there anyway of creating an I^2 Junior for the youngens?

I really don't want to loose contact with them...  :bigcry:
Can't you guys even just imagine it?

Wow! I'm sorry mate, I didn't mean to fuck things up for you like that (not that I actually shut the site down). If you are the man who pays the bills then shouldn't you be able to demand they reopen?
Unfortunately, I know that wouldnt matter

Half the time they act like

they dont know who I am

I have no pull

Sorry

You pay their bills and they treat you like that? That's terrible. You're a better man than I am for showing that kind of dedication in such circumstances. Respect to you.

Well good thing the site ain't the community. I really wish there was some way to find the AFF youngens other than WP.... I like them a lot but they are too young to come on I^2.

I am disappointed.

By reacting this way instead of engaging Bloke, Bloke comes out on top, especially in light of the fact that he had so much support after the ban. I haven't been there much lately, but I would probably have showed my support as well. I doubt he did anything truly ban-worthy.

By closing the site they are cutting off the only source of meaningful human contact for some. Sure, it is their site, but it means a lot to a lot of people. Some degree of responsibility is taken on because of this whether they like it or not.

After what happened recently with the shuffling if mods/admins this is too much. It was handled very poorly. I don't understand why Genesis could not have been kept on as mod. It seems a but controlling, and this doesn't help that perception.

Now everyone is going to walk on eggshells again, lest they land on the receiving end of a witch hunt style banning spree.

As much as I love I2, AFF is different. It tends to serve the needs of younger people and those who are DXed as adults.  It is smaller than WP, so it is easier to connect with others.

Larry and I were just talking about the idea if putting something together for younger Autists. Maybe this is the kick in the ass we need.

*sighs*

I hope it isn't how it seems...

I posted support for Les, I cant access AFF.
This is twattery, are we all supposed to be grown-ups?
Are we all banned for the sin of disagreement with Amy?   :dunno:

Please do! And find a way to contact them....esp mass effect dude (I don't want to put the pseudonyms on here)...It really is one of the only- if not, the ONLY outlet, place for many to retreat. I'd HATE to think of all the AFFers who have something to say, who are confused, who wonder why the site is down (because face it, more than one will probebly freak the fuck out and think it's some cyber attack, or think they have lost contact with all their friends). GOD. FUCK THEM.

What the hell??? And not even an explanation. no reason, no update, no nothing. Just a bunch of people- FRIENDS -who are left hanging in the dark. I really hate them right now.

Exactly, Bloke and the dissidents come out smelling of roses and the people who really need the site suffer. It is all so sad and so predictable.
