The downfall of Everything2 (the site, not the architecture) is
sadly linked into its quality control. Editors are picked from users who have made
to the site and have been there for a while.These editors/gods have free license to downvote and nuke as they see fit. So far so
The problem is that the editors are not impartial observers.
They have been known to downvote nodes which use language which they don't like,
political opinions they don't agree with, andnuke any nodes critical of E2 editorial policy itself. In one case, they outright banned
a user who had extreme right wing opinions nobody liked very much. Of
course, the guy who writes thestileproject.com got banned in seconds flat.There is no appeal, and if a node gets
nuked there's no way for the writer to retrieve that content.
