Just so everyone knows, Kim posted herself under “About this Blog.” We used our discretion and thought that it should be out front since this is such a huge issue.

Kim if we misquoted, please let us know, if you would like more added/posted to this, just email me at DSDramaMama2@hotmail.com or the other mama at DSDramaMama@yahoo.com and send what ever you want posted on this thread.

Kim Says: I just want to let everyone know what REALLY happened and WHY I was banned. THIS IS THE TRUTH, THE WHOLE TRUTH….As I have NOTHING to hide or be ashamed of.

Ready? Here goes:

So we all know that I am a member of another forum (MM). Yes I had a link in my siggy, I was told by Luvmybabies (an Admin) that this is INDEED OKAY and NOT against the rules. During the month of February there was a picture contest, you know, one of those, go vote for my kid kinda things….well, I made a thread to vote for Michael in this contest….bam, warning. Not allowed. OKAY FINE. I didnt realize that was a rule, as I see so many of these kinds of threads. Harmless in my eyes, really. Its not like I was selling PORN. SOOOO then there was another contest shortly after, I posted in my siggy that if you wanted to help me win the contest PM me…since I KNEW I could not start a thread about the contest. Well, APPARENTLY, EVER TIME I EVER MENTIONED MM, whether it was about the contest or NOT, I was given strikes. So I finally had a FINAL warning from Luvmybabies. I removed ALL things associated with MM from my siggy, just to be safe. NEVER mentioned MM EVER AGAIN after that warning. So this was FEB. weeks ago mamas. Fast foward to Monday. Most people are aware that I lost my baby over the weekend. To keep my mind off of all pain of my MC I had decided that maybe I will open a HC and make some embellished prefolds. SO I posted in the DIAPER CHATTER FORUM On SUNDAY that I was looking for a name for my business, if I start one, that I would be selling embellished PFs and my recycled wool. I was asking for SUGGESTIONS for a name, Not selling anything. Got many replies and was really happy about getting this going. I PMed an Admn to apply for the wahm forums. Kylie and so and so Mommy (another DS Admin) Pmed me and said, “hey mama, I just want to let you know that you are approved for the wahm forum and I moved your post to the product testing forum SO YOU CAN GET MORE REPLIES TO YOUR THREAD. Nothing about spam, not even a mention that I did ANYTHING wrong. Fast I went to update my MC post, was able to and then hit refresh and got a banned message. In this message it said the following:

You have been banned for the following reason:
signature violations and sending/posting spam – already on third warning

Now, go read what my banned siggy says, it has some other infraction about bad mouthing to someone, WHICH I DID NOT DO.
Date the ban will be lifted: 06-11-2008, 12:00 PM

Now, When Juan and Lee were asked about my banning they said that it was because of my siggy having 5 lines instead of 4.

Now this is true, it did have five lines. Want to know why? Because I had a miscarriage and when I removed my pregnancy things, it centered everything and created and extra line.

So which is it. The Post that I wanted a HC store name or the siggy?

That is all I want to know. I have emailed OVER AND OVER AND OVER again, and NOT ONE admin has gotten back to me.

I am asking you all to NOT LET THEM GET AWAY WITH THIS. This was OBVIOUSLY PREMEDITATED…..they wanted me out so I was WATCHED LIKE A HAWK.

    How harsh that she got banned for something like that. Seriously DS needs to grow up. Maybe DT will get popular again LOL!

  2. FireMom says:

    I just want to say to Kim: I’m sorry for your loss.

  3. Kim says:

    Thank you FireMom. It’s been horrid, I wouldnt wish this on my worst enemy.

  4. Jill says:

    I know you are telling the truth Kim. It’s pretty sad that they won’t let anyone hear your side of the story.

  5. theboardbitch says:

    DT should be renamed… ScammersRUs

  6. lysol says:

    I don’t get it, and think it’s all very silly 😦
    My personal thoughts are that because Kim is a frequent poster and is opinionated (I don’t mean that in a bad way!) that she rubbed someone or a few people the wrong way and they wanted her gone. So she probably got reported a lot, for every little tiny thing. Maybe admin/mods weren’t necessarily watching her like a hawk but someone was. Whoever they are, they are keeping quiet about it (to save their ass I’m sure) since everyone is really pissed over Kim being banned anyway.
    Sorry Kim

  7. APuritanLady says:

    I’m so sorry, Kim. It all sounds childish to me (on DS’s part).

  8. cassie says:

    sorry you’ve been sick dsdm… but i was definitely waiting for you to update because i was not on monday ( i was having a playdate and picking up my bff and BAM! more drama on DS:(), and i knew you’d be the place to turn to, lol. this, overall… sucks. i have been given warnings over my siggy before, and then the same day i see TONS of people with 5, 6, 7 lines…. people are ALWAYS starting “vote for my kid on this other website” threads… and yet KIM. seriously?

    whatever.

  9. honeybuns says:

    so sorry mama ;( hope u come back soon if they let

  10. Christine says:

    I agree that there were probably people just waiting to report Kim. My theory is that mom who kept messing with Kim in the thread about not judging a person by their appearance reported her. She was super hostile to Kim for no reason whatsoever. Maybe there are others who had it in for Kim, but that poster is my prime suspect.

  11. Ashley says:

    Fucked up. Kim, sorry for your loss. I hate DS today.

  12. The Bored Bitch says:

    Wondering where you found this post by Kim?

  13. endmendoza says:

    So sorry for your loss Kim! 😦 Prayers to you and your family.. BTDT.. 😦

  14. Kim says:

    I posted this on Batgirls and Misfitmoms.com

    I also emailed the drama mama.

  16. Kim says:

    Nope its fine, the only typo was my mistake, where is says Fast…. it should say fastforward to Monday when I updated my MC thread…

    I appreciate all the support I have gotten. I just don’t want to be forgotten on DS, what they did was wrong, I should NOT be banned for this long….if at all. Im really disappointed in DS admins choices here. I really was healing well, with the support and PM s from mamas that have been or are going through a MC.

    Its just sad.

  17. DS Drama Mama 2 says:

    Kim, I am so sorry.

    I actually had a dream about you and your loss last night. I can not imagine!

    And now all this BULL SHIT too add to it.

  18. Kim says:

    Thanks DSDM. Im feeling better about my loss. I know I am going to be okay. I look forward to TTC soon!!!! Hopefully I will be preggers when I am able to post on DS and I can make that my first post!!!!

  19. The Bored Bitch says:

    Bummer. Was kinda hoping the mystery bloggers were on BGs.

    *grin*

  20. DS Drama Mama 2 says:

    meh, not saying we aren’t, but that is definitely not where we got the post. Sorry to disappoint.

    But you never know who is just being nosey 😉

  21. becka says:

    SS Kim (((H)))

  22. Kim says:

    Also, I wonder why my banned siggy says bad language with a member??? I HAVE NEVER had issues with anyone there….I never swore or talked bad to ANYONE……????

  23. The Bored Bitch says:

    Awesome.

  24. Kim says:

    I just tried to get on DS, thinking MAYBE they realized my punishment was a bit harsh for the “crime” and look what it says now:

    You have been banned for the following reason:
    Multiple warnings given for siggy, spam, language toward other members

    Date the ban will be lifted: Never

    IT USED TO SAY A 3 MONTH BAN.

  25. more drama than MDC says:

    Huh, Sybermoms doesn’t ban, but we also don’t allow lame “vote for my kid” crap either, well, it’s allowed, but you’ll be flamed mercilessly about it.

  26. DS Drama Mama 2 says:

    So Sorry Kim. I am sure that they are reading this and that is why.

    ((hugs))

  27. Meeshell says:

    Hugs Kim.

  28. giggle says:

    Ugh, I feel so bad for Kim… what’s worse is on DS if you look at her siggy it still says temp ban…. I suppose they are hoping that people will forget about her by the 3 mos time frame 😦

  29. Christine says:

    Kim,

    In your signature on DS it still says:

    “Multiple warnings given for siggy, spam, language toward other members – Temporary Ban for 3 months.
    USER HAS REQUESTED THAT YOU EMAIL HER TO FINISH ANY TRANSACTIONS”

    Someone else mentioned that it is now a permanent ban, did Lee tell you that?

  30. Kim says:

    When I try to get on DS it says this:

    You have been banned for the following reason:
    Multiple warnings given for siggy, spam, language toward other members

    Date the ban will be lifted: Never

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    now, I don’t know why it is now a perm. ban I am trying hard to figure it out. I also have no explaination for why it says my language towards other members…I have never had a problem with language with another member/admin/mod. So To answer your question…YES, to me it says never. TO everyone on DS it says 3 months.

  31. DS Drama Mama 2 says:

    KIM ARE YOU BACK/??? ON DS?? I am having an issue logging in b/c of server speed.

  32. DS Drama Mama 2 says:

    I can’t get on to see the link 😦 I’ll let everyone know what it is when I can.

  33. Christine says:

    She’s back!!!

  34. aflanders says:

    “language toward other members” probably means asking people to join Misfitmoms, including a countdown of amount needed to say she refered them, So she could win $50.

    Not to be mean but the constant MM junk she posted was annoying. Like the “scandal” that mean people were voting “ones” against her baby bump photo contest. I always thought to myself “who cares?”.

    It sucks to be banned but no one is after you, you broke the rules. You don’t have MM sigs now, huh? I might seem mean for someone that never talked to her, but I was annoyed 🙂
