    Watching the drama unfold for quite sometime now, I can safely say, "Not really."

    Well, I'm not here THAT often but I would still like to know where elsaspet went that far that she was facing being banned. Thanks.

    I belive I can answer with what I think is the reason, but I think it would be better for a mod make the statement (if they choose) and leave things at that.

    I'm not here that often Parago and I don't know what happen. I think Cindy has helped me and many others and it would be ashame if she was banned. I hope thats not true.

    I went through some of her recent posts and yea.. she can be slightly.. blunt - but hey, we're all individuals and some of us are quite a character and I can't see at all what would've caused this. But then again some of her recent posts have been edited so I don't know details.

    SCARY!

    It is indeed unfortunate but the member in question has been banned.

    I don't want to get into it here, but the primary reason is that another member was singled out as a target. We here at TPF do not allow our members to be singled out, picked on or bullied.

    In this case, a warning was given before the banning. In fact, several other warning had been issued for previous incidents.

    Please know that we don't wish any ill will to the member in question and consider this a very unfortunate situation.

    Thanks for clarifying, Big Mike. I appreciate that. Like I said.. I looked through some of her recent post but couldn't find anything overly hostile but if there's been previous incidents I guess I understand the decision.

    Well in case you're reading this, elsaspet, I wish you best of luck with your work - I think you're an inspiration, in your own way.

    There were MANY past incidences that were taken into account. It was not an easy decision, nor was it a quick one.

    However, continuous inflammatory behavior coupled with a blatant disregard for the rules of the forum and the repeated warnings from the entire moderator team led to the decision being made.

    Singling someone out, naming them, and basically threatening them in any way, shape, or form, is not something that will be tolerated here -- especially after several warnings about similar behavior in the past.

    EDIT: Also, please keep in mind that usually offending posts are removed from view, especially those that are direct attacks on someone. Searching said member's old posts will not give you a full view of the situation.

    The thread is question was removed/moved.

    IMHO the thread itself wasn't that bad, except it was a blatant response to another members thread.
