A day late
I started writing a post a few days ago, it began, “My friend has a shirt that says, ‘Procrastinate, because if the world ends tomorrow you won’t have to do it’”. It should have been completed yesterday, but fittingly enough, I postponed putting the finishing touches on it until today. The post concluded, “Since MLIA began in May 2009, the MLIA community has grown much larger and stronger than I would have ever imagined”.
Today, as I’m sure many of you are aware, a number of inappropriate stories were posted on MLIA. I suppose those involved must have thought it was funny to publish stories with mildly offensive words on the MLIA homepage, but they were wrong. They might have had a giggle, but the vast majority of the MLIA community just thought it was childish. I’ve always believed the community should be able to police itself and have resisted creating a long list of banned words. I hope that what happened today is an exception – not the rule – and MLIA can continue to be the self-regulating, self-moderating, super-awesome community it has been for the past two years.
Keep it average.
