Fired from Accessify Forum (24th April 2009)

Today the staff of Accessify Forum removed me from being a Moderator. They haven’t bothered announcing this or updating that topic. Nor did they ask the members what they wanted, although I expect this is it.

Allegedly I was “being objectionable” which could be said about anyone who has ever given any advice or opinion. Indeed, saying things which cause objections usually means you’ve found an interesting subject.

In GTA modding and website design, I’ve seen countless bad ways proliferate when the right ways are clear. People must stand up to the bogus, whizzbang, speculative techniques which cloud the subject and distract from the real solutions.

That’s what I do. That’s who I am. My general rule was to be, at a maximum, half the acidity of Joe Clark. Pretty sure I managed that.

Anyway, the rest of the staff were unanimous that I had to go. It’s their loss. Members were leaving long before I even registered, back in 2005. Roll on the death of accessibility by a thousand lousy but unchallenged techniques! c{¦¬/

Accessify is now Derelict

My gesture of leaving last year prompted the owner to resume moving Accessify Forum forwards. A few months later, the only actual work to come from this is:

There’s no chance of the forum getting it’s much-promised renovations. Even the tiny changes. Simply because I’m not there to do the actual work. Nobody else was going to do it, despite their promises. I’ve seen it all before. Go team!

In the words of Cartman: “Screw you guys, I’m goin’ home.”
