Your intentions notwithstanding, your site has become the OC movement in Alabama. If you respect that movement, you will accept that fact and do more than pay lip service to not being the leader, but in fact move toward subordinating your tool to the movement and truly making the movement grassroots.
You can see my criticism as a lack of respect. You, not I, are responsible for how you view things. But, my criticism will not stop until there is no longer a reason to criticize. You may exercise the power to shut my criticism up on your site, but, when you bring it here, every time you bring it here, I will respond with further criticism of the heavy-handed way you have tried to control the movement.
Please don't play the my-hands-are-clean card. They are not. You just had more power in the situation.
On edit: I would rather see an organization formally created and ALOC join that movement as an arm of it in a true grassroots manner. If the person who exercises control over the site is unwilling to have that happen, then I will lend support (time, money, and effort) to making it happen independent of ALOC. That would be a shame.
