Re: Ok so Kim was allowed back...what about the others who were banned trying...

I agree with what others said, plus, I know of one of the mamas that got banned for a signature violation- you stated that in the thread- that if she did not remove "X" from her siggy (and this was under the brand new rule), she would be banned.

And, did all of those mamas receive 3 official strikes? B/c, the new rules say that each person will be notified if that have a strike on their record.

I really think mamas that had good records and were contributing members of our community should be given another chance.

Seems to me like you were trying to set some of us up for failure.

Very sad IMO, that is why I asked the question here. It does not seem right that a person with so many strikes against her (Kim) would be just wiped clean even though she has so many over such a long time, but someone who broke one NEW (several hard to accept and unfair) rule would be bannished forever.
I don't think you are ever going to fully agree. These ladies didn't break some technical rule like Kim did. The didn't just act in "heat of the moment" anger either. This was planned, pre-meditated attempts to hurt DS. You can think I am harsh or making things up, but I know EXACTLY what went on during those two days, exactly. I have also received an abundance of communication and feedback to confirm all I know. What more is there to explain...you continued questioning isn't going to bring a new detail to light as I have shared openly and honestly why I did what I did. I know several mamas that don't like my decision, but I know a whole lot more that do and are very supportive of my efforts to rid DS of these hateful mamas that would only like to damage this great community. Please don't expect more of an answer as I have been stating the same reasoning all along and posted it in multiple threads. I have nothing to hide.

Okay, I honestly want to know. Kim said some hateful things about you on other boards and asked for help. how is that different? this isn't an "attack" on Kim. I just would like to know the double standard. not everyone who was banned were on the boards where she asked for help either. I honestly just want to know and I won't pester or ask again. This is my one time asking.

Very well said, Also points that I have been trying to make.

There is no sense in allowing someone that administrative team considered to be a nuisance, someone that was warned multiple times, had multiple strikes to come back if those that she asked to come to her aid are also not allowed back. Yes words got heated, tempers flared, heck so did mine, but it was very understandable given the circumstances.

I really hope that there is more consideration given to this topic. It would be a shame not to.
Well said. I hope Lee takes all this into consideration and eats some crow.

this makes me so sad - i mean this all happened because Kim got banned - all these mamas got worked up because of that - so kim gets a fresh slate because everyone's knickers got in a twist but the other mamas don't - i mean how do you expect someone to just say ok new rules and all of a sudden calm down within a few hours? kwim? it takes things time to calm down

Thanks for your concern about my business rep. I don't really know why you felt the need to post that on this thread however.

Treading lightly here Lee, but the bolded phrase above is a little disturbing. The ladies that came here came here as a direct result of Kim's begging on other forums to not allow DS to get away with banning her. These women came to her defense for what they felt was a bogus banning of a long standing DS member who had just suffered a loss. Sure, things got out of control and heated but that is pretty much par for the course on forums.
Calling a group of people "hateful mamas" will do nothing but continue to fuel the fires and perpetuate the name calling and perceived hatred. Many of the most disturbing comments didn't even come from the evil board, we aren't all out to get DS.
Bleh, I don't know...I just think it really sucks to have some of my friends referred to as "hateful" on a public forum by a board owner. I'm not sure if it's sad or infuriating.
That's all, back to lurking.
