Public Zone was always intended as a place for new visitors dip their toe in so to speak.

Instead all it ever became was a haven for trolling and people abusing it.

It isnt the first time ive changed my mind about Public Zone... however this time I might not change my mind on the current decision to end public posting... i havent got any reasons to change my mind at this point in time and after 6 years of trialling it.

Eh?

Surely freedom and speech and inclusiveness on the site also applies to a public zone which you have now shut down.

It was often just being abused, Roast. You don't see half the stuff we have to delete, which sometimes includes links to porn sites, and even sometimes child porn.

Foxy didn't exactly do it any favours either. constantly trying to intimidate, silence, and bully other people he disagreed with from off the boards here.

Not anymore. Novum and I have eventually decided to put a stop to all that nonsense. It's really not worth the hassle.

When you cant vet posters then any old crap goes up there.

People can easily sign up and show within a couple of posts they arent spammers, doxers or otherwise wastes of bandwidth.

And they can do so with a proxy, VPN, whatever.. infact id encourage that... so if anyone is getting any ideas that there is anything nefarious going on here, you would be mistaken.

Its about getting rid of spam, and those who wish to do the site and its posters harm.

Not to mention myself and Zorro have better things to do than constantly check PZ for stuff that shouldnt be there and delete it.
