Is this the end?

I had just finished a comment in the social groups. I clicked the send button. It was taking a long time to load. I clicked it again. After that, this showed up.
I thought to myself, No. No, no, no. Or something like that, anyway.
I clicked the Favorites button that was assigned to it. The group didn't pop up. Instead, the groups list popped up.
Ladies and gentlemen, as much as I didn't want it to happen, the Planetary Pit Stop is dead.
The backstory is quite simple, as least, as I can remember it. The Social Group Purge
this is one of the two good things FFXIII has done for meis an event where the thousands - at least that much - of unnessicarry social groups were deleted, and some more rules regarding the social groups were put in place. If a group was to be deleted, it had to meet some criteria. There was only one that worried me, and even then, it was only a little worry. Later, however, jokool brought up a new list of criteria - and this one worried me. The third reason a group would be deleted (or Purged, if you prefer that term) was if it was a mini-forum-type thing.
The Pit Stop was a mini-forum-type thing. It had a place to vent, a place to discuss, a place to be random, a place to engage in combat, a place where special top-secret missions took place, a place where there was shipping, and other such stuff that I can't remember now.
Needless to say, there was freaking out. There was freaking out before the deadly criteria was put into place. A sister-type-group-thing was Purged just before, and the survivors fled to the Pit Stop.
I can't find any more to say about the incident, but I have to say this. Earlier, @jokool; a good friend of mine (at least, I think he is) said that this wasn't the end of the world. My reply to him was this.
@Truthseeker4449;, a rival at the very least, said this should be engraved in stone or something like that. This is the closest I'll get.Originally Posted by Marche Radiuji
But Marche/Lief, you may ask, why did you tell us this? I would answer, for two reasons, my friend/enemy/person I don't know and just asked me this because I don't know [pick the one that best suits you]. One, to honor my rival's wish as much as I could. And two, to let the admins know something. They destroyed a culture. They destroyed a way of life. They just pulled a Jenova, and you should look it up if you don't get it. Twice, at least.
But enough of that rant, I just want to say one more thing:
Welp, that's it. If you don't see me ever again, you'll know why.
