Since my comment got deleted from wiccans_unite, I thought I would repost it here for posterity:


I was banned, I never argued with anyone, and didn't join "the other community." According to your co-moderator, I was banned because I have bukyou on my friends list.

As suggested in the responses to my inquiry to your co-mods journal (since when I commented, there was no way to reach you), I read your information page. I still don't understand why I was banned, I didn't break any of your rules.

That ban has apparently been removed, but the whole situation is and was unacceptable for someone claiming to be open minded and accepting of everyone. At the very least, you owe me an apology.


Their reply was:
The community was closed for a time while we were getting innindated with trolls (usually people who were friends of the community members that chose to immaturly mock my community). If the bad has been removed, then there really isn't anything for you to be upset about. Join if you want.

I can accept a lot of things, but unwarrented attacks aginst me and my community are unacceptable. In addition, anyone who supports those that are attacking us has to realize that guilt by association is a fact of life and I will not tolerate people joining this community in order to take our discussions over to the mock community just so they cab have a good time poking fun of and ridiculing us.

I do not owe you anything. If you cannot deal with that then you may not want to join wiccans_unite. I do what I feel is necessary in order to protect my community. If that means banning people that may harm the peacefullness of my community, then so be it.

-------


I have, of course, since quit the community. She's welcome to reban me, as I'm sure she avidly reads this community and gets all riled up with delusional righteous fury every time someone posts.

from the wiccans_unite userinfo: abuse of any person(s)/group(s) of any kind (including prejudice) will not be tolerated in this community.

Of course, her throwing out people for their friendslist isn't prejudice. It's, ahhm, "guilt by association," which is, err, different, because, ummmm....

It's a "fact of life" and you'll have to get used to it. So there.

i love it: guilt by association is a fact of life. so in the burning times (mythical or not, past or future), she'll happily go to the stake because she happened to serve a meal to a terrorist or witch? (i refer, of course, to the unfortunate waiter who served breakfast to the 9-11 bombers and as a result was slapped into jail without charge for two years, then et go without explanation).

some pagans are really so very self-absorbed they don't even see the actual real-life dangers in the world. guess that's what happens when you have your head up your ass--you don't exactly notice much.

I could apply the reverse rule, too: "if you are bland enough and enough of a 'follower' to get along in that community, I have grains of salt ready for anything you say."

Not to mention if you write or spell like you-know-who :-)

I'm still flattered that I inspire such fear and hatred that you got banned just for knowing me.

I like the "rebanned or rebanning idea." I think getting rebanned from her community would be such an honor. And very funny too....

people that get rebanned from her community should be held in high esteem like an "elder" of our community.

*hahahaha...giggles to myself!!!!*

Cool! I'm finally an elder!

I was banned when she threw her snit on my journal, unbanned, invited back, and banned again a couple of days later because I hadn't taken this comm off my list.

WOOHOO!

Now...where's my elder pin, damnit? :)

Some days... it's all that I can do to keep myself from making a fake account so I can post there.
