Yesterday, I came across an interesting thread on the forums where a small miner was talking about joining hpool. The OP made some comments about how official Chia employees were making flippant comments to people seeking support in the #support channel on Keybase.
I replied to the comment with my own observations that collaborate what the OP has experienced.
Today, I come back to that post, and find that it was closed and unlisted without any explanation.
I would like to ask:
Why was the thread locked and unlisted?
Is the Keybase chat moderator who DM’d (and then deleted) insults to me (something about sticking something up my a**) also a moderator on ChiaForum.com?
I have been in the cryptocurrency space for nearly a decade now, and I’ve never ever experienced such unprofessional and hostile behavior from a development team. While this forum is not Keybase, I think it does concerns Chia the project, and I find very concerning that discussions seem to be deleted on alternate communications channels.
I would like to ask for an explanation. If the same moderator who was insulting me on Keybase was also the one unlisted the thread on chiaforum.com, I think an apology is called for, and perhaps the owners of this forum should re-evaluate who is part of the moderation team.
