She told me she was banned for threatening Gman with violence. Maybe with a Maori club?
I'll miss her very cool art here, but if you want to see her stuff go to Yahoo 360. Same name there.
Aloha!

Is saying "If you came here (NZ) and said that in front of my family you'd get your ass kicked." a REAL threat of violence? Did I miss something? Was this threat a PM? Edited out of a post?

I'm certainly not taking sides, just curious?

I think the mods, or Hanford could answer your questions Sneaky.

It doesn't have to be a REAL threat of violence -- the rules state clearly you can't even joke about it (see
rule 3). Over time many members have made it clear to me that they don't think there's any room for for threats on Tiki Central, and I agree.

When I banned the member (never mentioning to them whether it was a permanent or temporary ban) ... guess what his/her reply was?

Hanford,

Thanks for the rule clarification. I'm sorry to hear that you were insulted like that. It's so rare that a member gets banned around here that I was uber curious. I'm appreciative that u run this free site for us and have seen your great amount of patience/tolerance of members in the past.

Regards,
ST

Actually, perhaps I should clarify, because it was not the person's insult to me that tipped me over the edge.

This particular banning is about the attitude of the person as much as it was the threat. We have over a thousand regular vistors who never post. And we have hundreds more who do. And all of you people have proved to me one simple thing:

It's so easy to decide to spread good vibes on a site like Tiki Central.

Think of Tiki Central as a wall in a public place. The stuff you're writing on it -- unless you choose to take the time to go back and change it -- is going to be here for a very, very long time. So what are you gonna write?

You can write a poem, or you can scribble obscenities. You can do a beautiful mural, or you can trash one.

Now, since I own the wall, I'm hoping people aren't gonna trash it. And typically when trashing occurs, a bit of behind-the-scenes emails occur and it's all straightened out. Now, if in the process of me trying to straighten things out a user decides to go against the grain, well that's pretty much a sign to me to let differences be differences and send the user on their way. I need people to want to be here, and to want to get along with everyone. I need people who are aware that they have a determining factor in what they bring to the site, and decide to bring good things.

That just wasn't happening here in this case.
