> > Can you tell us why you allowed K to post under an assumed name? People (who haven't been deceiving anyone) get banned when they post under another name...
> Because I've considered it OK, in general, to assume a new name. And she wasn't posting under more than one name at the same time. And wasn't blocked any longer.
>>>>>yes, but you monitor the board pretty diligently. And you could see what was going down. Right? Why couldn't you put some sort of kibosh on it? You didn't.
> > So many on this board were hurt 6 months ago or whenever it was.
>> I know. Maybe this can be a healing process?
>>>>>Excuse me? What??? That sounds as if you're trying to disregard what's happened. This is not about 'healing'. This is about changing some of the rules of the board and protecting people that come here solely for support. I don't need an experiment to teach me about the healing process. Really, I don't. Your answer just feels like a cop out to me.
>instead of taking up your customary stance...
>> Are you thinking I encouraged her to change names?
>>>>Doesn't matter. I assume of course, that you didn't. but you were privy to all of it. No we don't know for how long or for what purpose. but I feel that it was wrong of you.
> Being contacted would constitute "helping them along"?
>>Of course not! And that, I don't think, is what Dinah meant. Why won't you just be straight with us? Please?
> Also, I'm open to revising these policies, in case anyone has any suggestions...
>>yeah I think we have suggestions
