I've dealt with a lot of stress lately. From anonymous users, Kaylor Blakely screwing things up, Kogitsune putting up stupid anime horny-porny, and now this: a post on my message wall about a shooting in Fort Lauderdale at an airport. That put me over the edge. You probably had seen the long string of messages in the chat log if you had been on it earlier. If not, I will repeat them here.
First, a three-strike system is in effect for unnecessary content of non-explicit nature. On the thrid one, you'll be booted for a week.
Second, I had been on this site for nearly five years having to deal with stresses of this kind, but they don't compare to the personal stresses I'm dealing with now. I'd appreciate your help during this stressful time. I'm dealing with the health stress, my stepmother lost her boss after passing away and things aren't looking much better, my father has dealt with prostate cancer, a heart operation from an attack, and this latest one from a little over a month ago.
I was very ticked off when I saw the PM on the shootings and that is what triggered my tirade in the chat box. I still feel a bit ticked off. I would really appreciate it if you can keep the real news crap off of our site and leave that to the pros like CNN, Drudge, FOX, and so on.
I believe admins should conduct each other in a professional manner, but that wasn't the case today and I must apologize for this instance. It is not reflective of what DonaldoC1997 had in place a few years ago. I probably should have been a bit more diplomatic in handling the issue with the news post but I was not. That was my fault and I take full responsibility for this action. I hope you learn something from this experience today and not have a repeat of it in the future. I said at one point in the tirade on the live chat that I was this close to heading out of here for good because of the negative response from the news post on my wall. If it were to ever occur that I go, I want ABN to continue on and for Champion Digital Broadcasting to continue along with Fortner Digital Media Properties and Fortner-DeFontes Media Group. I will monitor this closely and let you know if something comes up.
