I heard from eternal Lotharia that they have been dos'd. They are on discord if anyone wants to hear their side.

My spouse made me "our dish" today. When we knew I was pregnant with our first child and in no shape to cook.

I didn't even know we had a TET discord. Or is it one of those regional ones?

I may return for somewhat longer than I was initially expecting. Why am I here? No idea whatsoever. I really ought to find some way out of this place.

Also, the NS stats don't reflect my RL views, just to clarify.

It's all very confusing, and I still don't know why the mods saw fit to DOS Lotharia; from what I knew, all indications pointed to Munk spewing bullshit.

Yeah. Luckily pretty much no one believed it since he had basically nothing to prove it and only brought it up during a heated internet debate instead of notifying police as soon as he could.

If I had to guess I would say that Loth was not deleted due to the accusation. I think it is more likely that the mods searched his history to investigate the accusation and found some stuff they saw worthy of deletion.

While not defending Munk- look on Moderation. The evidence is there if you search hard enough.
