First all, I do not hate WBL. Nor do I even despise or dislike him. In fact, I kind of like him. And oddly, he seems to like me too. To this day, I'm still unsure why. Maybe it's because I took a neutral stance on the whole ordeal, listening to him along with the WSW while being against and for both and none. Or it could be something else entirely. So yeah, I like WBL. He isn't too bad to me.
Now let's get this out of the way, I do not entirely agree with WBL's intentions. He seems to be trying to get some people out of the WSW, and. To be honest, knowing him as I do, I'm unsure to why. He claims it is full of bullies, yet I see few or none. If anything, he could be acting like the true bully. Maybe he has good intentions from his view, reality could be different from his point of view (I am not saying that as a bad thing). And I will not say "Everyone in the WSW is perfect" Oh no, we're not perfect. But no place is truly "perfect" There are bad apples.
Irrational people, people who just don't really care, people who act before they think, people who don't know when to stop, people who act when they really shouldn't. Examples like this are found in the comment section of Evidence Awareness Day. But I am not saying "Everyone in the WSW is bad and WBL is the best" I can never say that, it would ignorant, irrational, and other such things.
I can honestly see WHAT WBL is trying to do, and HOW he is trying to do it. I do not fully agree on how he is doing it, but if he was doing it in a different group that was genuinely filled with bullies, his intentions would be noble. But really, the WSW is mostly just filled with
People like me (Don't really care about current events and just resurface every once in a while), people who genuinely care for the community, admins, people who are unhappy with themselves or the group, people who don't do much of anything, and much much more.
So, overall. I don't see WBL as a bad guy, he isn't, I think he's alright. His intentions if done in a different actual dysfunctional group would be seen as noble, but in the current group, it'll just urk people. It doesn't urk me though, because I can see WHAT he is trying to do at least. He hit a rough patch with some people, and thought the entire group is against him, that's really it.
WBL, if you're reading this, stay strong and take care. From what I've heard about you, it sounds like you aren't going through the best of times. I just hope fate becomes kind to you soon enough. Not from the WSW, but I have heard, things. About homelessness and such. The last thing I would want is for anyone to be homeless, especially in this time of year. You're no exception. Take care.
