Comment on August 2020 Newsletter, Volume 149

  1. If "social justice crusaders" actually cared about OTW being accountable, they would volunteer. To say you don't care if volunteers stop running the service is not the same as holding them accountable unless your end goal is to not have the service at all.

    1. Not everyone has the time to be a volunteer. If their only way to make their problem known is to make tickets, what's the problem with that? I also don't see where they said that they didn't care if volunteers stopped running the service (they probably would?), they just said they didn't feel sorry for them (only tag wranglers) because they choose to do that and can leave if they don't like it. Not the same thing.

      1. Creating tickets is not the same as dealing with the problem itself.

        If the volunteers stop volunteering, there is no one running the service ergo it stops.

        1. Yes you’re right sending tickets is probably not a good way to deal with this but the point was that volunteering is impossible for some people and definitely not the only way to deal with the problem.

          I didn’t give my opinion on the "if volunteers stopped running the service" thing, I just rectified what I thought microaggressions meant. I actually agree that it’s a lot of tags to wrangle for the tag wranglers, just because they choose to do it doesn’t mean we can’t feel sorry for them bc it’s a lot of work.
