  •  imo you're wrong here Sallycat, the BC was (10+ / 0-)

    a Sistah Speak/ Criminal Injustice Kos thing due to Robin being the initiator and both CIJK editors getting ratings pulled though not banned....

    As far as I know at this point, the only actual Bans were TiMT and Adept2U   the rest of the BK members and supporters affected were hit with ratings suspensions and from backtracking some of those threads and reading them myself, most seem to have lost them for bad uprates on some of Adepts uglier comments that were rightfully hidden. There might be more but iirc out of this community, 2 bans and about 12 pulled ratings privileges and imo the majority were well deserved like I've said many times....

    I liked Adept as a writer and followed his UFO diaries but the reality of the situation was that he would flip from nice guy to raging highly personally insulting asshole almost as fast as a Top Fuel Dragster does the quarter.......dehumanizing rhetoric like Termite or Cockroach when applied to a person is always TRable imo...Words can and do kill, see Rwanda for details but I know you know them....Imo anyone who recs a dehumanizing comment should lose their rating abilities.....

    did someone usually act as a master baiter?

     yes for the most part but it's the control to not reply with nastiness even when that's what you are faced with that proves the depths of a persojn.....

    Basically, I'm  trying to say that the boycott and most of the nasty after the boycott are not from Black Kos members with any actual power in the group...possible members, maybe just supporters like me but not in control and it wasn't Black Kos that instigated or even pushed for the boycott...That came from Sistah Speak and CIK.....

    Basically a long winded way to say I think you might be blaming the wrong peeps for the prob and the Porch can be a pretty nice place to be on occasion.......

    I'd hate to see you write it off....Hopefully you'll be persuaded and come back....I might not make it every week but I usually enjoy it when I do....the reason I follow BK and not Sistah Speak.........

    As it wasn't a BK organized boycott, imo it's wrong for BK to be penalized when they didn't propose it.
