Notice how almost no one wants this, but it's happening anyway because the dude who owns it wants it to happen?
 
This is how decisions are made under capitalist power structures
 
The owners (who are a tiny percentage of the population) have all the power and the countless people affected by their decisions are either "consulted" and ignored or just not consulted at all and then told after the fact like this.
 
That feeling of powerlessness you have right now as something you depend on is taken away from you and put in the hands of a dodgy company?
 
That's how people in countries that underwent neoliberal transformations felt as both parties defunded or privatised public services to fatten the profits of the private sector because both parties were bought out by the rich. Those who have the money make the decisions, often directly against the interests of ordinary people.
 
Liberal democracy is a sham. A lie. What little democracy we have only exists every three or four years when we decide which politicians will serve private capital, and even that only applies to a thin layer of how our lives are run.
 
The vast majority of decisions that affect you are made undemocratically, by people with wealth and institutional power not answerable to you in any way.
 
I'm not saying "MPA being sold should make you an anarcho communist", but maybe it should

do you not already get ads for unicef and protein bars and NEDA???

Answering you both. To the post you quoted, no, I don't and they don't. To this actual post. That's Google Adsense. It tracks your browser

I'm sure everyone is feeling unsettled with this announcement but I just wanted to say that the moderating team will be working with you guys in this transition and will continue to support you. I hope it's not too stressful for community members.

Seeing all of the mods (that I know of) active in one thread is weird. I am imagining the avengers theme playing.

Oh come on, that was the entire point of ED forums in the first place, to give people like us a say and and a place to be ourselves, to be accepted, and to be left alone.

 

Just being sarcastic.  Of course that's the reason for MPA, and other sites that came before that.  Peers running the show, and making the decisions. 

 

But we simply can't have that sort of thing, you know ?

I thought I quoted this and responded already but I don't see it and thread going very fast so just wanted to point out that admin isn't even part of our community. He bought us in 2016??? Or whenever that great debacle was, never fixed anything, then sold us to highest bidder. No one "in charge" is currently regularly very active on MPA. 

 

Which isn't a knock on our moderating team. They've been moderators for years and it's unrealistic to expect people to devote years and years to a website and remain active and dedicated without pay. People have lives. But, no one super active on MPA was behind this or giving any input on this.
