I find it really sad that you join a site, do nothing but post your content for it, and within 48 hours you get abuse from the admins that run it, and all over a few stupid links. I ain't going back there again. It is a shame, since I loved the software that the site was made on, but I've found out that I can use the software on my own site once I get the domain name sorted, so said site has just unknowingly created a rival. It will be for the users. They'll be no stupid stuff with it. And links? People can post whatever links they want, as long as it's rp/fandom/etc related, and not causing harm. People are dicks  sometimes.

And I really, really do not appreciate gaslighters, or rather, g-ASS-lighters.

G-ASS-lighters is a play on the word, gaslighter, which in turn is related to gaslighting. Gaslighting or gas-lighting is a form of mental abuse in which information is twisted or spun, selectively omitted to favor the abuser, or false information is presented with the intent of making victims doubt their own memory, perception, and sanity.

A g-ASS-ligther is therefore, a person on the internet who has somehow managed to get into a formal or informal position of authority on the internet, either has an admin for a forum, or someone who is influential with in a clique or group. They typically pick on someone who is quite isolated or new to a community, mess around with them and then once caught out, proceed to spread rumours about their victim, further isolating them. Cat-fishing may be one of their tactics.
