I was an author at gay authors.org for more than five years but for personal reasons I sent a politely worded email on 4/10/18 asking how I can remove my profile and stories.
I attempted to log in some time later to discover I'd been banned from accessing the site. I have received no emails in response to my request and I am assuming that my details have now been removed but I don't know this for certain.
I always assumed that complaints about the attitude of the site management were a nonsense, made by disgruntled users. Given my own experience, this is sadly not the case.
There are some very nice people on the site and I shall miss them but I recommend you stay away from the site entirely if this is the way they treat their members.
