If you don't like a board, I recomment you stay away from it, and help make HoP a welcoming fun place for everyone.

This thread is making HoP a lot less welcoming.

You are on HoP at the moment so please keep to our guidelines too...

Thanking you all in advance! :-)




Thank you, Charles, for this excellent example of good moderating. smile

Posted:Hi guys, I'm another infiltrator from UK Hippy I'm afraid.

I hate joining a forum for the sake of a thread like this, but there are a few things that have been reposted to this forum that haven't been represented accurately, and it concerns me. I know a few people on the Poi scene and I wouldn't want my name repeated attached to lots of gossip. From the experiences I've had with HoP members so far (waves to Jo) I don't think I'll be shot down in flames for presenting another side to the debate, so I'm going to give it a shot.



I banned Ecomamma a few days ago, for good reason. She might not agree, but I've been a mod on UK Hippy since near the beginning and I've only ever banned three people (one on their request), which suggests otherwise. After she was banned, she involving herself in a discussion about another banned member and attacked the mods and admin because we were concerned by reports from young girls of his taking advantage of them and weren't prepared to reinstate his membership. Since then Ecomamma has been doing nothing but throwing around accusations, some of which are extremely personal and extremely childish (the mods are paedophiles, I neglect my child, I can't dance either and all my friends on Psy Forum hate me), trying to stir trouble for the mod team via other forums and threatening the mods with messages such as "I know where you live, I'll come to your house".



There's so much potential for things like this to escalate, and become destructive to everyone especially when accusations are flying around. Think how you'd feel reading those things posted about you, because you asked someone to apologise for insulting someone else. Then take into account that I've made no reply to those accusations until I was pointed to this thread, and realised they're going to be copied and pasted over the entire web unless I do say something. Not really the accusations of a spiteful control freak who loves a drama, eh? wink



The last thing I want to see is a revival of the stress we seen when this thread first started, and I don't think anyone here wants to see that either. The majority of the members that I've come across from this place have been smart, down to earth, creative and lovely people who are a pleasure to talk to. In the time since this thread started both forums have gained a sense of respect and friendship towards each other. Let's not lose that over the anger of one person.



Again, my apologies for coming over here and taking up your time with this. I really wouldn't have done so in any other situation, but I don't want to see this turned into a forum war or the accusations that have been made spread any further. It's really quite hurtful having lies about you pasted all over the internet for your friends to read.



If it's any consolation I'll be back to post something more on topic when I can work out how to get past hitting myself in the face with my tennis balls ubblol



Thanks for listening guys.

Posted:Thanks Firinne for presenting the other side of the story. You are welcome here.
We discussed previously whether this thread should be closed and decided that things seemed to have sorted themselves out so it was ok to leave it.

But, just a reminder to everyone reading this thread - here at HoP we'd like to encourage positive discussion rather than any bad-mouthing of anyone. Personal attacks will not be tolerated.

OK?

Posted:I had a bit of a problem around UK intollerance involving a moderator called Starpoi who I think enjoys her authority in a way not consistent with the tolerance and humour you would otherwise associate with "Hippies". I found the culture of that site more like "travellers" than hippies. Cliquey, petty and more concerned with trivia than Culture and Consciousness.

I have to delete one of your posts in that thread because it is offensive and I am going to close that thread if you continue to be rude to people. Other people in the thread are just asking questions to understand why you have said what you have said so to respond like that is unacceptable. We do not tolerate offensive behaviour on this forum. Please could you refrain from making such posts in the future or you will be banned.

Starpoi

Dear Starpoi, I was shocked by Zees suggestion in the Honey thread of Vegan and Vegetarianism that my expressed reasoning about eating honey and expressing thanks to bees could offer an argument to justify eating BigMacs. On researching Zees posts I couldnt help noticing his hilarious and apparently serious remark about being very good at cunninglingus. Particularly as a pagan I could not resist making a comical reference to this. Given that Zee has clear comical references in both his title and title photograph I was genuinely interested to know whether he was serious or simply had a superb sense of humour so decided to explore and make a joke reference to the oral sexual needs of bees and cows. The hippie counter culture that meaningfully commenced at the time of early 1960s anti war movement, Ken Kesey and the Merry Pranksters epitomised the value base of tolerance and truth in absurdity (e.g.Monty Python etc). The controls and censorship typical of the post and pre-war period were fundamentally challenged and the state sponsored controlling mindset of the typical Nurse Ratched (One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest) to be found in public institutions challenged for the first time. Your private message could have been spoken by Nurse Ratched herself and the conclusion, particularly given that this is a Hippy forum is chilling along with your view that you would again kill chickens if survival depended upon it. Are you suggesting that there is a sliding scale of importance among sentient creatures? If survival depended upon it would you eat Zees learning disabled charges because they are less intelligent than you?
