Our perspective has been changed by the news that Sean personally invited Rick back to his moderation staff after Rick already exposed himself as an irrational and vindictive moderator.
We naively believed that Sean did not know the state of the leadership at his forum. Now that we have learned that he specially chose Rick for his moderation team in spite of Rick’s demonstrated unfitness for the job, we have readjusted our expectations of Sean and of the Hannity forum. Good luck to new people who walk unwittingly into that world where rules are made up as they go and Terms of Service apply only when convenient.
We have documented enough knee-jerk moderator reactions and randomly applied penalties for anyone who wishes to see. There are also many other sites online where discussions of this nature can be found. We intend for the site to stay open for viewing and for your comments within reason but we are taking a break from commentary for now.
Thank you for the information you have added and for making the discussion interesting.
We might return sometime and open new threads for discussion. We will leave the door slightly ajar.
