What's wrong with lead-moderators? Deleting communities instead of simply passing it on to others, really?
How can people be so self-centred they think that them alone losing interest in a community is enough for the community to disappear, or that them alone wanting to change things is enough for the community to comply-or-die? The « I, myself and mine » thought is such a disease, leading to destruction for no good reason: « I can, because it's mine »? What's the point of creating communities online, if it's to later disregard the very notion of 'community', if it's to ignore the people who make the community (and focus only on oneself and one's own opinions)?
Social media at its worst.
