Rhonda Drage Says: June 17, 2009 at 4:14 pm eI am shocked. I have been banned from DS.
I am apalled! That grown women would LIE about their reasoning for doing this! “You have been banned for the following reason:
multiple usernames – phoenix_fire, godess_heather”. I am not, nor have I ever been any of these usernames. In fact, I have a pay pal receipt to one of them, for a purchase I made from them!
I am angry! That this ‘woman’~ and I use this term loosely~ can’t even put on her big girl panties long enough to allow me to ask why! Date the ban will be lifted: Never.
I am hurt! That I have no way of contacting anyone I am currently in transaction with, to let them know that I cannot contact them!!!! That I did not ~FARK~ them over, but have been put in the position not be able to fulfill anything with anyone on ds! So! DS is ~FARK~ing them over by banning me!
I am in disbelief! Did anyone on here, know that the pm’s they sent to other ds members, while on ds, are read by ds “admin”?????? Is that right up there with molestation and rape? You encourage women to establish trusting, open, sometimes too honest relationships so you can go beyond what they would expect, by pilfering the pm’s they send to other momma’s, distort what they are, and denounce the member as being something they aren’t? Then BAN them so they have no way of defending themselves? What the hell? Why call it private message if it going to be reviewed by “ADMIN”? And then, when it is addressed, instead of saying “I read that message you sent so-n-so, and … They say “It has been brought to our attention”!!!!!
And! for current DS members especially did you know that you are not allowed to ever mention a banned member, even in pm’s, even for the sake of letting a current member know that a banned member has no way of contacting them, to complete a transaction that was in process, but would like them to make contact at said members non-ds e-mail address? That this is considered something like ‘fraterinizing with the enemy”???????
I am in tears over this crap!!! I am not a mean and hateful person!!! I would not go a half step out of my way to hurt anyone, intentionally. I am so un-accustomed to this sort of behavior, and totally blown away that I have had it thrown at me!! I go out of my way to help others. I give until it hurts and then give a little more, because sometimes I hold back on giving all I have to give, and it eats at me. If I have wronged someone, I will step up and make it right. I don’t hesitate to speak my mind, but I don’t do it at the expense of someone else. I call it for what it is, MY thoughts, feelings, beliefs, opinions~ and you don’t have to agree with them, they are still MINE. So when this happened~ I am lost…
It started a few weeks ago I guess, when I went to to drop a line to a ds member about a transaction problem we were having, where she accidently put someone else’s addy on a pkg which was supposed to be sent to me. Imagine my surprise when up pops the message that this member has been banned for bad rep and multiple user accounts! So I go to her profile to get her email, no access allowed. So I go to pp retrieve her addy and email her. I didn’t ask the details of the ban, spoke only of our trans, and told her I would let anyone else she was in the midst of unfinished business with know how to reach her, if she would like. She wrote back and said she would so appreciate this, there were a couple rcvd-ty, a couple did send, and I think 3 non-descript, but please contact me. I went on ds, and proceeded to leave brief but discript messages to the 7, via pm, giving the private e-mail. Within 24 hours I received a pm telling me it had been brought to the attention… this person is banned for a reason, and not to forward this address via ds anymore or I could be banned. I apologized, stated I didn’t know it was against the rules, and that I wouldn’t repeat this action. Yesterday I received a response from one of the people I had forwarded the address to, telling how glad she was to know some wool she sent had arrived. Thank you for letting her know, she is always glad to learn when something she ships reaches it’s destination. She then wrote “Explain?” and beneath that was a copy of the original note I had sent w/ said addy on, with request to contact r/t woolies. So, I felt sorta stuck. I did a little time out with my higher power and decided to respond to the pm, with the reason I sent the message, that maybe she didn’t understand that it was the ‘new’ means of communicating with the other person, and the la-ti-ta of being warned not to repeat the ‘infraction’. I also said that I was somewhat anxious about being banned, just for having the contact with her regarding this, that I would hope not, as I enjoyed the interaction and would prefer to stay. I told her, since she already had the addy, there shouldn’t be any problem with her having contact on her own email, w/ the person.
Within the day I was banned. So, since I did not know the any of the persons I originally pm’d, what is the likely hood they would have a problem w/ me and want me banned? About the same likelyhood that the momma I responded to yesterday would want me banned? And this brings us to the fact that the pm’s would have had to have been read by person or persons which they were not sent, in order for them to jump on them and ban me for fictitious reasons, and offer no response or recourse! I was able to recoup some addys from my pp, but the ones I had not yet shipped to were scrwd!
This mama was banned. If you’re in a transaction with her and are ready to freak out because she is now banned, chill for a second. Rhonda, post your info here if you’d like for people to have a way to contact you. It’s not like you don’t have a chance of going back. DS likes to ban and unban people. Makes them feel powerful.
