Jake, I don't know if WB is anti ultralight or not, but I suspect it has more to do with how many forums are run. Many seem to have moderators that take it upon themselves to go well beyond their duties, policing not just language and offensive content, but any content they personally dislike. They also seem to have personal beefs and act upon them while in their "official" capacity. Reminds me of some of the problem cops we hear about.
This is one of the reasons I love BPL. Ryan Jordan and the moderators have done a great job in letting people express themselves, even when it gets uncomfortable.
What bothers me even more than owners or moderators that go overboard with their authority, is how Ok people are with it. Seems like people like to be herded, monitored, censored and so forth, because it gives them a sense of security perhaps?
Your experience is a bummer, but not unique. As long as the majority backs ups such abuse of power, we will see more of it.
I know, this is more Chaff than anything else, but I just had to..
