I'm just a guy, nothing special. I have made over 50,000 posts on Athletics Nation. I will never make another post there, and this is why:

I am no longer a "product" of AN or the SBN sites. This is my choice based on moderation changes on AN I do not agree with, plus a catering more to advertisers and view counts over good posters and quality content.

Multiple users of AN have been banned without warning and had posts censored because they brought up points that the administration did not agree with. There's no freedom to express yourself if what you express is going to be censored because Nico doesn't like it.

This took place after multiple thousands of posts discussing the direction of the community, because AN was truly a community and not just a website. Those posts have also been deleted, and the changes that the majority did NOT want were still pushed through by Blez, Nico, and BaseBallGirl. It has now gotten to the point that posts are deleted and users are banned nearly instantly for any sort of dissenting. That is not a community I want any part of whatsoever.

Some of the best writers and producers of content have been driven away by the administration, including but not limited to: monkeyball, FreeSeatUpgrade, elcroata, danmerquery, emperor nobody, FlashFire, PaulThomas, and DesignatedForAssignment

Goodbye and good luck. The Kraut is still Free.
