From the List Moderator
- Everyone take a deep breath.... done? Okay, here we go.
The biggest concern shared by all is that Brandon Blackmoor was banned
arbitrarily and without appeal. There seems to be an air of "So what's
stopping *me* from getting banned?" In the future, I will warn members
both via the list and directly before banning them. Frankly, I hope it
never again becomes necessary. I will also draw up a list of what is
and is not considered acceptable behavior. Again, I wish it wasn't
necessary, but some of the complaints seem to indicate it is.
Regarding Mister Blackmoor in specific, I have reviewed his posts
since the beginning of June, and found his overall tone belligerent.
There are good ways and bad ways to make a point, and Mr. Blackmoor...
chose poorly. GMSkarka has already come forward to present his
complaints against him. I will not name anyone else who did so; I
leave it to those who complained to come forward if they so choose.
At this point, I would like to close this issue for twenty-four hours.
