    Wow. Who on Earth has time to create ten accounts? Someone with WAY too much time on their hands methinks.

    I have enough trouble keeping up with what I say on just ONE account.

    Sheesh.

    Real courage is found, not in the willingness to risk death, but in the willingness to stand, alone if necessary, against the ignorant and disapproving herd. --Jon Roland, 1976

    I did the sock-puppet thing in a baseball league I was in. It didn't gain me any advantage--it gave me extra work. It was a role-playing league so basically, I had more characters to keep track of. I did have way too much time on my hands. I have about 20 legacy blogs of fictitious players on Wordpress from the various leagues I was in.

    I always gasp, truly gasp, like out loud when I see a banned member. I get it, but I still gasp. Recognition is an important thing in life, so much so
    character can be comprised. It's a terrible temptation and the motives while not right might not be so wrong. I'm just sorry to see it is all.
    Those little medals are awfully pretty, all lined up in a row, I guess some grow weak, they want it, really want it, we all get that too.

    The soul can split the sky in two, And let the face of God shine through.
    But East and West will pinch the heart That can not keep them pushed apart;
    And he whose soul is flat -- the sky -- Will cave in on him by and by."

    How many last chances does anyone need? Or even second chances?

    If i post a comment on a "WIP", LOOK! I'm a reader that's all, and i can only tell how i feel, as a READER, giving/offering feedback. Hoping to learn and grow here. So please, tell me where i'm going wrong.

    Me? I'm just a fly on the wall.

    Look! I'm trying, okay?

    One can but dream, if only i had dared.

    Alas, i am weak.

    I must find a way to Eastbourne and i so wish that i could dance.

    I understand what you mean, and yes, it would be nice to extend the compassionate society ideal to all things. However, there are times when compassion to one means unfairness to many. In society, we see this when awards, honours and degrees are stripped from those found cheating; we see it when someone who is a danger to others is removed and secured.

    Those in the know will tell you we have, do, and will, offer second chances and more where we hold some hope of understanding on the member's part; sometimes to the wonder of others, and often we are asked why we waited so long before taking the final step of permanent banning. The converse is also true; some are honestly surprised at a particular banning. And that too, is understandable.

    Yes I understand. Compassion can be the rule but not change the rules. You are a fair person, wise, I trust that. There is reason why you are where you are and who you are, I trust that too. Thank you Cran.
