You can still enjoy the community through IRC Chat and the Forums. And no one's being punished, as far as I am concerned (I assume you mean punishing users by shutting down chat? Chat is going no where generally speaking and we don't need it). Also, I know you defended your lack of editing, but remember what the front page says, '''''"we're a literature wikia."''''' With that in mind, I think users are obliged to edit, etc. to some extent. This place is not solely for the community (talking with friends, etc.).
