Apparently, the way I've been interacting with my customers via DriveThruRPG's customer email feature is problematic.
People complained, DriveThru issued some kind of email warning (which I didn't receive), I sent out another "inappropriate" email to my customers, and now I don't have access to my publisher's account.
Is it so wrong to engage with my customers in an alternative, outside-the-box fashion? Is joking around that great a sin? Am I corrupting the youth? Do I deserve cancellation, never to be seen again? Ask yourself, what would Communist China do? Whatever that is, Americans should probably do the opposite.
Of course, that's just my opinion. Who am I? Just some guy who's written the books over there on the right-hand sidebar. Yeah, what do I know?
I don't entirely blame DriveThru for their actions. I wouldn't want customers complaining to me, either. But just imagine, if you will, a world where gamers take time out of their busy day to complain about a couple of humorous emails to the big corporation, so that... what? An independent creator gets in trouble, gets temporarily (tentacles crossed) shut down?
Just another reason why we've fallen so far from grace. Especially in a year like 2020. Keep it up, guys. Another asteroid is surely on its way.
