I was not going to say anymore, until I have seen some of the recent posts. First off Peter and Mrs. Waite, I know that Peter thought he was doing the right thing in removing Ivy and I as moderators as he thought we were becoming too stressed. Well WE WERE!!! WHY??? Because I have just found out that a troublemaker was sent to this forum from a disgruntled member to come onto the forums and create problems for the moderators and members here. I had members emailing me and tell me they suspected that, and I even suspected it myself. But had no concrete proof at the time, so I had to take a watch and see attitude. But this troublemaker really seemed to really want to get to ME most of all. I utilized the moderator forum asking all the mods for help with this person(s) as I was not getting any help from admin. So yes, we were very stressed out. They used phrases that many members could see right through as being targeted at me. I am a big hugger. Is there anything wrong with offering support to someone and sending a cyber hug??? Roni has a copy of the thread, so you two can read it if you like. And just heard last night that the truth was posted in an attacking email to one of our members. No sooner than Ivy and I are removed as moderators, then this troublemaker(s) suddenly disappears. Hmmm... What a coincedence, huh?. I even READ this disgruntled member who shares the same faith as you and Peter, they were going to tell Peter how terrible we were running his forums, and they knew Peter would listen to them because you shared the same faith. I told Peter this recently and he responded that that was just plain silly. And I do agree with Peter here on this one, because if Peter made his decisions for this forum based strictly on his personal religion, then why does he have a rule stating no posts of overtly political, religious or medical views allowed. I am paraphrasing here.
I am very sorry to hear Peter is ill. I myself am just coming out of a large flare myself . Even while just getting out of the hospital and hardly having any energy to even stand, I laid on my couch and came here to support these fine folk. Why, because I cared SO much about
them. I know that Peter is sick, so why not have someone else to help him out and guide the moderators when they encounter problem members. All this stress would have never happened if we could have dealt with the troublemaker in a more timely manner.
I hope Peter doctors find the right treatment to get him feeling better. I hate to see anyone suffer with this dreadful disease. But I think that what was done to Ivy and I was not right, and I have to say so. As you can see here, I did nothing to hurt Peter or anyother member of this forum, I only tried to help his largest forum and membership thrive.
I loved these people very much and as you can see they loved Ivy and I too. And yes I could still stay here and give support, but the treatment I received to my dedication to HIS forums, was not handled in a very nice way and I won't lie, I AM HURT! Hugs to you both!
