Yeah I am a bit like my hibernating torts (In the dark) on this one, from what I can make out though, a bit of "light forum discussion" took place!, the powers that be, swooped in too fast, caused an uproar/uprising type thing, then smoothed it over by allowing a return!...Does that mean we all get 3 strikes?!!!...T.T.

Hibernation?! :( We've come full circle now! So then, does anyone want to discuss the pros and cons of hibernating / overwintering? :o
LOL :7

I am completely baffled by this. Omare left because after a discussion here she got private emails threatening to mutilate her tortises and nothing was done about the culprits. Surely they should have been traced and kicked off the list, but there was silence from the webmaster. Then the webmaster accuses all of us of using the forum to batter each other and when Joanne complains she is told that she is kicked off the forum. And now the webmaster says that because Joanne is registered under several different names she will come back to the forum under those names, but does not explain why that allows her to come back (but welcome back, Joanne, it would have been dreadful if you were not allowed back). I am completely bewildered by all of this and would welcome an explanation from the webmaster that could hopefully restore the good feeling that is usually on this forum.

Where was the proof of these emails????

Hibernation, The fight Kicks off, Great debate, Someone can not take the evidence for hibernation.

Aledged threatening emails to Omare.

Webmaster kicks in with his dummy email to all.

Peace is restored!

It starts again....

Joanne, far more respected than the faceless postmaster posts her opinion.

Joanne expelled.

Looking at things from an objective view, I think it's worth remembering a couple of things.

Firstly an internet forum is not cheap to run. The webspace and bandwidth financial costs especially as a forum becomes popular can be rather large. None of us actually pay the webmaster for this website, and as such we have no privildges. There's no freedom of speech - the site owner has every right to do as he sees fit. If that is banning a member then, as much as we may not agree with it, that's his perogative.

It's a bit like a pub - you wouldn't go to a pub, insult the landlord then expect a pint and a packet of nuts would you? :(

As a Moderator of 3 other forums and an Admin of another (unrelated to Tortoises) sometimes these decisions have to be made, and since we're all human we're not 100% right in what we do. But, lets remember that though the account Calamity Jane has been removed, Jo's re-registered and has been allowed back on. :o

Lowe,

Point well put.

Sometime's the mist of a deemed injustice gets the better of us!

Let's hope for this to be an end of all this foolery.

I still think it would be a nice gesture to reactivate the 'Calamity Jane' account as she only expressed an opinion.

Regards

Mike

Lowe,

Thanks for your input, yes it dose cost a lot of money to run this site and the huge bandwith the forum uses.

This site is FREE so please bear in mind that we are hear to help new / old tortoise members with tortoise related questions & queries.

If you like i can start to charge an admin fee for you all to use the forum, but how many of you would pay?

Enough said on this subject lets move on

Have a great weekend


Regards


Webmaster
