Attention: Recent Forum Drama 2.

PostThu Jul 25, 2013 3:08 pm

(Response to the drama which was instigated here: viewtopic.php?f=29&t=1688&start=60)

I believe it's patently clear that Sue-donym/Pseudoname was LG utilizing the persona of a 19 year old girl at this stage, having reviewed the relevant posts and styles. Many may be surprised however the team would have been willing to give LG a chance had he come forward as his actual name, or contacted us prior to registering. The fact that this was not done did not bode well with us at all, which otherwise may have favoured him returning (This is my stance atleast), and so potentially may have had other motives if he felt the need to hide them.

It is a shame it turned out this way, and there where many who were taken in by DDT's antics, and so I would have been willing to put that in the past. There are members who genuinely appreciate LG's posts around here, as he is an intelligent fellow certainly, and so we would have been happy to accommodate that. Heck, the fact that he chose to register on these forums speak volumes as is, though as has been stated, posing as a 19 year old girl was not the right way to go about it.

Regarding Sarah, for the record I will say that I have absolutely no issues with her presence here. She was upfront and forthright about her registration and who she was, and has from what I can see not consciously instigated any issues with other members here, despite there being a somewhat cold reception (Understandable, though can be avoided) from other members here. I respect that greatly, and while Loki is correct in that certain folk may harbour mistrust issues, there is no reason why we cannot make a conscious effort to place that behind us. This is a new forum afterall, with new ideals, or so I would have hoped.

Now, whether she so happened to conveniently post here in the same thread as LG was garnering attention is not of my concern. This is a controversial topic afterall, and she is entitled to her views as felt necessary, and I've no qualms with that. I would rather look past theorizing motives behind posts, and in this case it's harmless enough. I know Sarah favours LG somewhat, though the affiliation is harmless enough, and so do other active members here. From what I see Sarah you took things a tad too much personally, or read too much into certain posts. While I can't say the distaste towards you is something I share, I will say it's reasonable to expect some coldness towards your presence here, understandably. Should there however be more in terms of an agenda/vendetta against you we will of course intervene where appropriate, so you've nothing to worry about on that front. That's all I'm willing to do about that.

Not sure what I will do with this thread yet. I will poll Loki/the other Mods to determine best course of action.

Edit: Seemed Loki handled it. I'll post this up as a thread in announcements in that case and leave thread open for dialogue.

I am my transformations.

Here are my selves become one."

Since this seems to be an open thread to place this statement.. I'll say to Sarah that I wasn't referring to you when I said trolls.

That was the second incident in which a troll registered and posted in that specific thread..

I sincerely hope u address with Sarah that it is not appropriate to YELL AND BITCH at people who respond to her respectfully. End of my input.

I liked sarah in the old v.c. I was actually surprised that she doesn't post like she used to, because it seemed pretty well informative.

Hex, you sure Sue-donym couldn't have been Cymbaline? She's a young woman and (semi-)close to LG, isn't she?

Well lets not talk about her as if she's gone or something. She is still here, and you can address her.

Actually, in the future, I know people don't like to use the chat feature much, but if you have an issue with someone it might be worth opening chat up and talking it out there rather than in the thread. Just a thought for everyone.

Cymba is middle aged. I actually thought about that too, but Sue practically admitted to it and never denied it. The posting styles matched up with LG as well.

Cymba was my first guess actually when I finally remembered her username. A lot of them seem to have left ddt's forum when I went over there, and checked.

It is indeed a shame.I got on well with lg , he was the only one who had a strong background in finance to enlighten a lot of our subjects on the old forums, heck i even exchanged pms at certain points, and supported him during the catholic hysteria of the old vc board when it was getting out of hand(even more so than some of the homo threads...would you believe?), then that asshole ddt had to ruin things...

It must be said I am not a fan of heavy-handed moderation in the least (half the reason why i'd never volunteer modding). I kinda think perma-bans are a bit over-the-top. However I believe the mods/admin/hex made a genuine correct call this time.

:grin:

And guys... come on now less of the high-school bullshit please (all of us are guilty at some point)....Though i probably have more chance of winning the lottery than that happening (or getting a job :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: ) . Let bygones be bygones (i'm referring to susan and any other 'future' defecting members who might be having/giving a hardtime) Though i'm sure mods will do a good job anyhow...
