the SCP wiki community is hostile to pluralfolk 

Guess we might as well post this publicly.

We attempted to return to our old friends on the SCP Wiki last night, to whom we had not talked in about a year. Instead, we got snipped at for referring to ourselves in the plural, and told that it was "extremely disruptive"; further events we uncovered thereafter indicated that this community is just really hostile to pluralfolk and effectively has "no plurals allowed" as a de-facto community policy.

To be specific, you can't use one account because they'll get mad if you ever refer to there being others using the same one; you also can't use multiple accounts because that's "one person using more than one account" in their eyes. Cute little catch-22 there.

A month ago, they banned someone else for being plural too: 05command.wikidot.com/forum/t-

It's pretty clear to us, speaking as someones who have previously spent about two years around (and in the good graces of) the staff, that they just don't believe that pluralfolk are legitimate and think we must be just making it up for attention, or perhaps too dangerously insane to be around their community. It's really garbage and we have little respect for them anymore.

In the linked incident log, a prominent admin states their opinions pretty bluntly:

"I'm going to simply state this and there will be no argument to it we will entertain. If you occupy the same physical body, chatstaff will be treating you as a single person within our chat. What you do on your own time is up to you. This is non-negotiable. We have voted and decided that no further references [to being plural] will be tolerated."

Since this statement is based on ideas that are just factually not accurate and indicates extreme hostility to further conversation, there's plainly nothing more for us to do here. We'll be deleting our Wikidot account and no longer recommend this community as a safe haven to anyone, plural or otherwise.

They can all rot in hell.

More broadly speaking, this seems to arise from a long-standing frustration with newbies mistaking the site for a roleplay community, and so they have a sort of knee-jerk reaction to crack down on anyone saying things like "I am not human" or otherwise indicating neuroatypicality in a context that is not strictly medical, because they assume that any such is an attempt at childish roleplaying.

This is a fantastic example of how not to handle a persistent community problem:

Get continuously more angry about it over time until the slightest hint of it sets you off and makes your reasoning shut down. Stonewall anyone who suggests you might be doing it wrong, because they're probably just trying to weasel their way out of trouble. Enforce your own thought patterns as the only valid ones and reject all others.

So anyway yes, this has been our "surprise, these people you thought were okay are actually horrible" for hopefully the year

@diodelass I also just personally hopped into chat to ask them for an official stance, and..

I don't know what to say? This is just severely disappointing. I really liked their project before this and I'm just.. UGH

@diodelass Like, from the chat logs I saw of the one system getting banned, they weren't disruptive nearly at all or dominating the chat?? that was just a few lines, chat could've moved on.

not only that but some systems could technically fall under psychiatric recognition because of DID, but not all systems are a result of DID. plus modern science has repeatedly failed to sit down and listen to trans people, people w/ autism, etc., let alone people who experience plurality. demanding official recognition is just a fucking excuse.
