Mr. Vijay I've just finished reading your announcement in it's entirety but I'm afraid I will not be hitting the like button. When I first joined this forum I was looking for a place to communicate with other people who watch IPKKND but sad to say I came upon the craziest set of fans who for some reason thought the sun was shinning from the armpit of a certain actor who should not be named. Fair enough if people want to lick and lay on the perspiration of an actor then so be it but the ones who don't and expresses the same, why should they be labelled as Haters, Bashers, Uneducated, Jobless, Low-lifes, Murderers, Rapist Fan-goatwas, Trolls etc to name a few?
I remember during the SPL in Birmingham a few rabid fans decided to protest when they realized their God-like so-called eye-candy actor may quit their favorite show. I had no problem with them protesting but when one of them compared their silly protest to what Rosa parks did which ensued the Civil Rights Movement I was rather appalled and upset. Mr. Vijay I come from a mixed background and a huge part of my heritage is black so you could only imagine how upset I was that someone used such a sensitive part of my history to compare such a travesty? I will not go into details as to why Mrs. Parks chose to remain sitting on that bus and was later arrested.
I remember reporting it to one of your "ever-efficient" DT members Mandy but I'm afraid I was not pleased with the way it was dealt with still I let it go. As they say in the West Indies "Egg don't belong in rock-stone dance". At that time I was an egg and the Fanimals were rock-stones, so who was I to be in their dance uninvited?
Yes you talk about dealing with things amicably and not openly criticizing the the DT but what about the PMs that were sent to you and the DT by myself and many others which were never read and acknowledge or sometimes read and never acknowledged? Whatever caused people to start exposing and speaking openly about the DT, then this is one of the reasons.
Another reason being the fact that some of your "staff" members were very arrogant with members in the past and still continue to do so. I remember getting my first WL from Deepz and although I did not believe I deserved it, I understood where she was coming from and I wish other members of your team were like her but sad to say they're not. I am not here to praise anyone or suck up because that is not my thing but when someone does good it should be known as well as when they do horrible things.
One of your DT members boasted to me about closing all of a member's post which made it sound like she never read them but simply stalked waiting for her to post so she can close them off. So please explain to me what that was if it was not targeting and biased behavior.
You talk about warning levels but you are not clear on how they work.
Are they attached to an account forever or are they ever removed? I would love to know.
Sorry for the long essay as it's not my thing...,believe me, I've even surprised myself.
