If I'm allowed to be honest, her posts pale in comparison to some of the other posts in that thread, and a lot of those people weren't banned or given warnings.



It is a double standard. That's all I'll say about that.

My Uncle used to tell me life ain't a circus, either, when I'd say life isn't fair. I guess that advice applies to this, too.
i love cherie (onlygirl) also - she was a great ds'er and i wish that someone would either tell her exactly why she was banned or unban her - she's clueless and it makes me sad because she was trying to help another mama that doesn't have internet access get some inexpensive cloth diapers because that mama hardly has anything - this is a woman that knows what it's like to need to diaper your child inexpensively and she is trying to help another mama do the same and she got banned and doesn't know why and would just like to come back or at the very least get an explanation (yeah major run on sentence - bit of exhaustion champing at the bit)

i am not sure if there are other mamas out there that are going through the same thing as cherie (onlygirl) but it sounds like there is - this is very sad and i wish someone would do something or at least a mod or admin contact cherie with an explanation

and tara... i think i love your uncle

My feelings as well. I don't "know" Kim, other than she is a involved member of DS. Thats about it as far as that goes. I hope that since she got to come back with a "clean slate" others who were banned for defending her can come back too.

I think we already know that I believe some unbanning needs to occur. Been saying this for a few days now. Just thought I would do a quick chime in to restate my feelings on the subject and that I agree with all who have so eloquently stated their opinions on this subject and feel some unbanning or serious explaining needs to be done and have not talked down to me for stating my feelings on this subject....it seems I'm not the only one and that is good.

ehhh, it appears nobody is going to get any more answers...
it looks like the "ruling was final" as stated in an earlier post from one of the mods...
oh well... I'm just going to take it as that and maybe from now on not invest as much time and heart here as I have been lately. it saddens me to say that, but ya know, what else can I do? oh well.

I have too have lost heart and will be spending less time here (I am also not renewing my site supporter)

I know I am not alone ... just one of the few loud mouthed enough to say so.

When he brought Kim back I was honestly thinking he would restore some of the others as well and it gave me a bit of faith that he respected the wishes of the users, at least a little. apparently being "right" is more important.

Maybe his wife and Juan will talk more sense into him and he will reevaluate who was a threat and a real problem and who was just caught in the crossfire or the moment.

All I have to say is:

Considering all the people who stuck up for Kim, and considering she went onto two other forums that I know of to rally the troops (with some pretty offhanded, offensive and funny remarks I might add), many of whom came to her defense, where is Kim to help out the mamas who were banned in her name? I havent heard from her in a while. And she clearly has no problem speaking her mind, because she often does just that.

Im not talking about the spamming mamas, Im talking about those who seem to have been banned for reasons I cant figure out.

I think the voice right now missing in this debate is Kim, because shes got Lee's ear at the moment. And she owes it to them.

I'm pretty sure that Kim is taking a much-needed break from the internet for a while to deal with what is going on in her real life and focus on her family

Sorry, but she posted all over other forums and then when she started to get called out just slightly, decided "to take a break."

As a woman who went through a MC myself, I find it offensive that she seems to be using it as machination for manipulation. She goes on other forums and blogs, calling the DS admin all sorts of names, crying for people to help her, and when we do, she barely, barely barely says thanks, questions some people's motives, and has a huge chip on her shoulder as well.

Please dont get me wrong, I feel terribly for her. But like many other mamas have said, its no excuse for her insensitive behavior, when we are all walking on eggshells at the mere mention of her name.

I must have missed it, because I didn't see her thank anyone but Lee...

My words are probably going to sound funny, I don't know how else to put this, but I don't understand why the ring-leader of the gang would be let back in when her newly recruited followers are booted. Seems weird to me.
