Jumping in randomly, I kind of agree that we don't know the full story, and there are people willing to lie and/or mislead people into believing a certain narrative.
I have made criticism that didn't get me blocked even by Miles or Kerry, and I've seen plenty more that was worse than mine that didn't result in an instant block.
I know that there is a section of the RWBY fandom that is extremely toxic ( Gonna name drop Soarel here as an example.) , and have a habit of not only using personal attacks and threats, but bringing up Monty as a weapon and using his death as a prop. The statements like "They are deliberately going against Monty's wishes" or "Monty would be rolling in his grave if he knew what they had done to his show", and that isn't even the worst. And from experience, those sorts of people aren't always honest, and will lie and distort events to make themselves look like victims.
Not saying that is what happened, but it is a possibility that should be taken into consideration. That some of these people claiming to essentially be victims might not always be honest actors, and might be omitting some essential facts.
