She instigated a systematic attack on someone who posted comments on her blog she found unacceptable.
She further fuelled this attack by creating an online drama, illiciting support from her minions to 'gang up' on an innocent individual who simply expressed her disapproval regarding her drug addiction.
Exactly what part of Lyrics actions do you find acceptable? Admin has now made their ruling, just why can't you accept it?
Where would you like to go! I feel that you are attacking Tantrum, who is my friend. You are being downright paranoid. So I would stop being a Nasty person, and that is not a personal attrack, but you have been doing so. GO TANTRUM Up the Anti, Oh Bother banned again.
It is the right of hubpages to close any thread. It's not a punishment for rules violation. The punishment for rules violation is banning. So if you broke any rules, chances are you would already be banned.
If you expose yourself in a public online forum through a blog, a hub or whatever... then you have to be prepared to face up to the consequences of that exposure.
Lyrics is a self confessed drug abuser. She doesn't hide that fact. She probably gains emotional strength through her cathartic expressions of drug abuse. Some will sympathise with her, others will not.
You simply cannot have just sympathetic opinions all the time. And lets be real here, she's had more than her fair share of sympathetic supporters. Eventually, someone will come along who will be less sympathetic and express their views in a frank manner. There is nothing wrong with that. It's human nature. Free speech and all that. By exposing more of yourself, as Lyrics has done, in a two pronged strategy at achieving cathartic release and garnering emotional support, you then need to be open to the possibility that some might find your actions unacceptable.
She adored the support, but was unable to deal with a valid criticism.
A very important clarification needs to be stated especially to Marisa who so sensitively has stated. Two wrongs don't make a right. I was not responding to any personal attack. Not once in the forums was I approached or attacked by this person. She has never entered the forums. My postings were a cry for support which stemmed from verypainful comments in a hub. The community as usual were more than supportive and helpful. This is my responsibility completely and I stand by in. Inretrospect it is now a legal matter and Marisa is correct maybe we shouldn't post when we are upset. My feeling is that is when we should post most. I needed and need help, asking for it because my character was demoralized, judged and humiliated from a comment not post was a decision I chose and did state I was prepared to be banned for it. It was also I who told this other party about the forums and this is how she came to be aware of them. Again my choice. We all have consequences for our actions but to judge is filthy. Marisa you judge me even now when you were right there posting alongside me.
Judge me. I am me. I will miss ya all. Bless you for your help. My situation is thankfully become one of a legal nature and was a planned attack. With that, love ya wankers.
Kimberly has completely missed the point. Does she really think the troll on her Hub is the reason she was banned?
Three times, she posted on one of her threads starting with "I am prepared to get banned for this attack" - then proceeded to attack another (male) Hubber. She knew what she was doing, but she did it anyway - how can she possibly complain?
In fact, I posted to warn her how silly it was to do such a thing. Flout the rules deliberately - what do you expect? Maddie has made it clear that's exactly why she was banned. And it's only for three lousy days, for God's sake!
I have sympathy with the original reason for her postings but none at all for this current situation.
I find the e-mail interesting How would she know it was a planned attack? How is it now legal, I honestly did not find the comment on her hub to be to harsh it was just someone expressing their thoughts, I need coffee now but all of us are entitled to our opinions and if we do not like them we can always delete them. Anyway good morning
You both want some sort of lesson to be learned from this. That's fine, I can see why you would. Also, I can see this lesson. It's a good one. But it all boils down to the same conclusion. People are always going to have different opinions. One thing Max actually did say, That I do agree with, is Freedom of speech. You have the right to want to make a point. And I have the right to try to just let all of this go.
In actuality, Three days is nothing big. I will give you that Marisa. And Yes, Haunty. She got banned because of How she reacted to someone saying their opinions, Not because of any other reason.
Now, That being all said and in the open.. What's stopping us from just letting go? I am not going to fight anymore. I am tired of stating my opinions, and then watching them get burned to the ground. I'm walking away, and I suggest everyone else do the same.
This is my last post on the matter. I hope you all have a good night
If its regarding what I think it is the other person should have probably been banned two, she singled out lyrics because of how she lived her life and her beliefs, completely personal and unprovoked in itself.
Everyone is entitled to express there opinions including Maximus, he did not do anything wrong he had his own opinion. How many times do any of us have to be told that we need to step back and breathe before we act? Here is an ex: I posted a thread about HAITI not being rationale at all expressing my thoughts and not understanding why our Country was broke but we gave $100 million? I was beating down by some of you for my thoughts, I took the beating and after realizing that those people needed help to, I closed my own thread. I was not starting a thread to fight, badger, point someone out I just wanted some to listen sometimes we do things placing the cart before the horse but attacking each other is completely wrong and unnecessary! This is not high school and all of us are adults, well the last time I checked.
Just like I said on the other thread go read or write all will be fine.
I was 'banned' from posting for 3 days - The Hub Team have yet to explain their reasons despite three requests from me. I'm assuming I was reported by one of the few right wing posters that I have had the odd debate...
So apparently Mark was banned from the forum the other day for being a decent person. Then someone here had the audacity to call my favorite author's work, "drivel." So I thought maybe Mark, being one of the...
