I said what I said because this is a petsite, something for the owners to ruin and not something for normal people to get depressed about. Kami, you shouldnt have ever felt like it was the only option, pay is minimal on petsites, especially new ones like Celendria - If money is that terrible, you really should look into other things. Getting so troubled over something so small is un-neccessary.
As for standing up for things in the world, I'm pretty sure I would, if I believed it something that mattered. You're referring to 'the outside world' which this is not. This is one of many websites with possibly a bad future, theres a lot of petsites/websites that never make it, and if I spent my days trying to change the cyber-world around me, I'd be here forever.
When I said you shouldnt have needed to make the thread, I wasnt saying you were wrong for doing so. My point being the staff and site alone should have realised already, and they dont deserve the time and effort of a thread when they're so mean to you - They're deciding the fate of their website and in the long run you wont be affected.
