"We must take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented." - Elie Wiesel

I would never sit back while someone unfairly pushed other people around, even if it was just on the Internet. People are people, even if we only see them electronically.

So, I'm quitting real_philosophy. I know it won't make a difference to them, because I lurk. The few times I've posted, I've been personally attacked, and flooded with idiocy. It's rude and overwhelming, and it's what's kept me silent on a lot of things.

Still, what the mods have done over the past day is utterly repulsive, and I do not want to be a part of it, and that is why I am quitting. I'm also dropping the one mod on my friends list, which I feel bad about, but I can't be friends with this person anymore, because this is the second time he's remained neutral in an injustice, and I have nothing but disgust for that sort of behavior. I'd be more than willing to talk this out, but I am not going to initiate the conversation.

Peace out.
