During recent events, I have decided to step down as moderator and member of the â€˜BlahBlahCafeâ€™ (the Zoolook forum). This decision is based on this site ownerâ€™s slanderous remarks to me in which my religious beliefs were not only mocked, but also critised.
A member recently posted a comment in which this sites owner was uncomfortable with in regards to religion. However, the rest of the members comment was to make fun of a photograph posted up by another member, but in a non-aggressive way. I posted up one of the sites traditional Emoticon â€œlaughingâ€ symbols in my own reply to the comment made about the photograph posted. By doing this, my personal religious beliefs came under attack for no reason what-so-ever by the site owner. The site owner was not even remotely interested in apologising in an orderly manner.
I will not allow myself to be part of an online community who openly attacks those who have beliefs, regardless of what they may be. Because of this, I have stepped down and will now longer participate in such a site. It is a shame that these unfortunate events have occurred. It has not blemished my interests in the work of Jean Michel Jarre. Plus, I would like to point out that this site is not affiliated to Jean Michel Jarre in any form other than that of a fan base.
I wish all members of this forum well for the future.
