    lol ... it's okay ... i tend to say the same thing, 1500 different ways ... :)

    So if you got it at that point, no need to read further, you're good.

    Thanks for the encouragement.

    Much Love and Peace.

    When someone's agenda or opinion is not outright name-calling or cursing or other rule violations but is disrespectful and insulting to us here, how is that processed?.......When we live our daily lives donning our "armor" in the world, must we also be subjected to having our "integrity" questioned, degraded and challenged by white members here?

    No matter how "respectfully" presented, must we accept having our faces slapped in a place designed as a refuge from the daily slaps we endure?

    Those are my calls to make, not always easy ones, but mine nonetheless.

    Until it's been determined that one has in fact violated, they are as welcome as you or any.

    If you or any Member feels disrespected prior to such being determined, put them on ignore.

    That's the process. Built in refuge, for those feeling slapped, as you don't even have to see it.

    Any more questions?

    Sister Cherry ... you really must be shook ... for the above is a low blow even for you.

    You talk as if you are out of some money, that i beat you out of it or something, deceived you.

    Sister ... you have never given a dime here ... yet you want to insinuate that i am about the money.

    If i were about the money, you would have been long gone. I never would have labored like i have.

    Even if you're referencing a Premium Member ... in most cases, it's rarely more than $20 or $30 dollars.

    You're playing me real cheap, if you think i could be bought for that ... and apparently you do.

    Our record reflects ... Premium Members get banned too ... their money does not exempt them from rules.

    We've been here 16 years, every single day, and you obviously have no idea what it costs me to achieve this.

    You obviously have no idea what is required to manage this community with high character and integrity.

    Give a penny, nickel, dime ... anything ... then talk to me about how easily bought i am.

    :heart:

    I know I've never given a penny. I'm well aware of that. And, no, I don't think or feel as if you've "cheated me out of anything or deceived me." :10500:

    As for "playing you cheap," even taking away any premium membership factor, in my opinion, you've played yourself cheap. I can only accept your rulings or go elsewhere. Again, this is my opinion. I have accepted your "warning" and will ignore WWM even without the button.

    Peace and Blessings Family,

    I posted this thread 6 years ago in 2009 - which was 12 years after starting destee.

    I just read over it again today and it warms my heart still ... :bowdown: :cry: :bowdown: ... i'm so proud of us.

    Thank you Family for your posts in this thread and your love in this community.

    :heart:
