Oh SBS when will you learn

So something has been happening for awhile, that no doubt anyone paying attention can see. SBS deletes any negative posts from discord. Normally following up with banning the user. While the forums weren't the best place to discuss anything, they have taken a much harder stance. Even the highest backers aren't safe anymore. With Serpentius flat out threatening to ban people. Then there was the last "official" place to discuss how shitty SBS is, reddit. But over the last few days, anything that even remotely calls out any BS SBS does. Removed. Normally they didn't take the same stance, unless the discussion when completely over the line. 

The point of this post? Well truthfully there isn't one. I don't expect SBS to ever change their ways. Everything over the last year has been slowly leading to this point. I am confused why they went this direction. Silencing people have never ended well. People generally go two ways. Complain somewhere else or give up all together. Since SBS clearly doesn't care about pissing off whole kingdoms. I wonder if they have an investor around or why piss off those that feed them? Maybe someone here can make sense of the whole thing for me.

    Just after recent events. Sick that white knights still defend everything they do, while actively shutting down everyone.

    Speaking of eating, apparently some very appreciative backers sent the SBS team large care packages of energy drinks and special treats.

    First in months the SBS devs posted on their forums in months, even Caspian dropped in to say thanks. 

    I had thought they lost the URL to their forums maybe.

    The funny thing about that. Someone sent them energy drinks, people commented that making a post thanking one guy in public. Then different devs jumping in, isn't the greatest thing. Caspian reply "thanks for that feedback". They then posted a different thread thanking another person. If that isn't a back hand slap, I don't know what is.

    Belittling the person, downplaying the complaint and just hand-waving the problem has been their go-to approach to address concerns. Which, of course, turns folks rather toxic. Then they get sanctioned for trolling. Conveniently makes the problem go away on is own two feet.
