Dame, does this mean that the poster who was banned for the actions of other people despite not breaking the rules herself has been reinstated?
That did make me very uncomfortable.
The most basic rule of this forum (and the site overall really) is do not bring trouble here.
If you are referring to the person I think you are, her name was never mentioned publicly by any moderator as having been banned. We don't typically announce gags or bans publicly unless someone is being a very obvious troll or troublemaker.
Her ban was lifted weeks ago, at least early November, by me, and she was notified of this. She may not have received that email because I kept getting repeatedly contact from her asking to be unbanned well after she was. However, I sometimes have bigger administrative fish to fry and do not have time to have repeated private communications over the same issues. There are very patient, long suffering members who are due a response from their messages to me and I still haven't had the time for any replies other than a quick, "I haven't forgotten you," or a quick "I'll get back to you".
You, Larrabee, have firsthand knowledge of how well private communication can work to resolve a problem and thus leaving all drama off the forum.
So, the question arises as to how people know she was banned. Since her user ID was not published to any Ehell affiliated site by any moderator, the only other logical explanation is that she has told people she was banned. And some of those people have taken up her offense and her cause and made it a public issue on the Ehell Facebook wall and hijacking forum threads reporting on malware issues. That is trouble by anyone's definition.
Or are you are saying that the people who have taken up her cause are doing so against her wishes to harm her? In which case I suggest she contact me immediately to identify those people so they can be publicly outed on the forum and then banned from this site as being malicious, hateful people. I'll be happy to welcome her back as the victim of nasty people who used her for their own petty agendas against Ehell.
As for hot-shaker, I have unbanned her. I readily admit that I misconstrued several of her comments about not wanting to go to Ehell, etc. However, I most certainly did not misconstrue her comments below:"Quite frankly, I trust the reports from my fellow posters more than I trust the the EHell administration."
"Yes, I will freely admit that I have recently expressed disdain for the actions of the EHell admins."
She has not been happy on this forum and if she cannot trust me or others in the forum administration, I doubt she will ever be happy here and probably needs to find someplace where she is.
