Well, it finally happened...

Postby Crawler » Tue Oct 29, 2002 5:04 am

I had to ban someone from NightScrawlers. Never before in the history of NightScrawlers, including the years at Hostboard as The Nightcrawler Monument, has this happened before.

Some of you may have noticed that on all of Tabitha's posts it says "BANNED" below her name. That should say it all.

If anyone has questions as to why she was banned, don't hesitate to ask them. I think most of us will agree that, one way or another, she deserved to be banned.

I'm sorry that she was such a disruption while she was here and that she was here for so long after she had become a unwanted entity. I gave her more than enough chances to redeem herself and the other mods helped me a lot, both in trying to help Tabitha and in finally coming to the decision to ban her.

It had to happen sometime, and I hope it never has to happen again.

*frown*

I knew that a few people here, sadly myself included, were on edge with Tabitha, but... Alright, Yes. I support the decision, I guess.

Real pity, though.

Crawler, i think you, Jill, Jake, Slarti and the others did an amazing job, i mean i had the oportunity of seeing something about making that descision and i can imagine it wasn't easy specially because you wanted to help her, but i knew it was useless and i can imagine you was frustrated because i tried to help her before and i couldn't do anything *sigh* so i decided to quit, i think she didn't wanted it anyway and she was just messing with us, and i didn't knew she was banned till i saw it in her above her avatar, what a shame but she was the only and one guilty about what happened.
I have to say i'm sorry also because i was mad at her because she pissed me off a lot, but i tried to stay calm, but if i did something wrong i didn't notice please forgive me, and if i made somebody feel bad please forgive me also, i wanted to help but i couldn't and i felt useless at that time but nevermind anyway, now is in the past.

Whoa whoa wait...when did you ban her? Why did you ban her? Knowing me, i like to get all the goss on stuff like this so I wanna know what she did wrong.

Mmm, i agree bamfman, I didn't like her much either.

I've been warned by Bamfette that I'll get banned if I 'attack' anyone again (for those of you who have seen the argument Lucy and i had in 'in loving memory') Now the reality has settled in that anyone can get banned. I'm scared now....

trust me it was not an easy decision... but we were getting complaints, and she was driving some people away. quite frankly we would rather have those people she drove off back over Tabby. they were long term posters who we had all been friends with long before she arrived. when you think that one person can ruin it for 200 others, well then the decision isn't that hard anymore... a lot of it most people would never see, a lot of cleanup done on the part of the mods moving or deleting off-topic posts, u2uing her to stay on topic, etc. abnd ofcourse there was the stuff everyone can see... like calling Dave a senile old man. there are rules here. we warned her, gave her second chances, but nope...

and follower, yer out of danger now, don't fear... we just don't take kindly to people flaming anyone on here. we want a friendly atmosphere, that's what sets us apart form say, newsarama, which is a pit of vipers.

The end decision came when I realized that she would never come clean and never be a poster that we wanted around here. I really wanted to help her, and we certainly gave her more than enough chances to redeem herself.

Essentially, she broke all the rules and never stopped...and I knew that if I didn't ban her, then someone (or a group of people) would take it upon themselves to drive her away. I really didn't want a war here, so I nipped it in the bud.

Wow, that sounds bad. I never really noticed anything like that, the only thing I knew of was the 'senile old man' thing to Dave...that was so mean!

I DIDN'T LIKE HER! seriously i was so ashamed she took my comment the wrong way. IT was antagonizing. I lost sleep. I mean she probably is a nicer person in reality, but on the net, anyone can be different. What drove me nuts though was she seriously thought someone across the otherside of the country...LIKED HER! Argh! ...ok...sleep...... :Z (It was a hard decision Crawler and Co. but it was right. )

No clue what the Richards thing means, but...

Believe me, this was not a decision I came to lightly. I had A LOT of input from the other mods, coupled with several complaints against her, and a fear of what might happen if she was allowed to stay.

We gave her many, many, many chances...and she never got any better.

I don't want this to scare you all, but I guess in many ways it's a wake up call, both to you and to us. You CAN be banned. I CAN ban you...but are we going to start banning people left and right? Hell no. That's not what we're about.

ya, it was a really strange thing.

I think she was given way more than enough chances.

I seriously hope we never have to do it again, and I wish we didn't have to do it in the first place.

I think more than enough people where, irritated with her, to say the least. Probably a very serious understatement. Most people will only talk in private about it, and, well, some just bent towards Tabitha a wee bit too often, and not in a good way.

She was given a lot, and I mean a LOT of chances, and she was talked with a lot in private, and still. *sighs* c'est La vie.

And Ms. Richards, I can See you :shocked: :kiss:
