I probably will put up a Pay Pal link for donations to upgrade the site. Hopefully we’ll get enough to pay the techies to do the install for us. We can change the forum so that you have to go through a moderator check before being allowed to view it. People would have to write a little about themselves before they could get on. The upside is that we wouldn’t be subject to this kind of ridicule. The downside is that we are much less accessible, fewer legitimate searchers will find us, and we will have been controlled by these assholes.
Bill asks what do we think. I think we are making WAY too big a deal out of this. The Kid came with a specific agenda…. to state that his nation was free of black blood, albeit in a rude and disrespectful manner. If a moderator had thanked him for his imput and reminded him that rudeness and disrespect were not allowed on this forum…… AND …. everyone else had shunned the behavior and resisted replying, it would not have flamed.
It has worked in the past and it will work again. When you respond to a troll, you give him power.
Some of the group’s members (including some moderators) are acting shocked to discover this mindset exists. It exists, people and it is our # 1 obstacle to getting respect as mixed bloods. We deal with it as we always have….. by amassing proof of the truth… until it can’t be denied.
And we don’t give flamers any of our power…… not even our outrage. That’s what I think.
