Please Read Prior To Posting - Notification From Group Hosts - Approach To Blocking Members [View all]

Last edited Thu Mar 3, 2016, 11:08 AM - Edit history (3)

This discussion thread is pinned.
Due to the recent influx of new posters in the African American Group we've come to the decision that we must depart from our patient approach of asking disruptive posters to remove themselves. Unfortunately one of these requests (a second request) by a group host (Number23) was hidden by a DU Jury on Saturday August 9th.

At this time - we had perhaps five members on our Blocked Member list. At time of this notification, we now have 31 members on our Blocked Member List. The heavy handed approach has been to protect regular subscribers to the group, as well as to make the group 'friendlier' to those newbies to the group who post here with Positive Intent.

Going forward, we will give a first and last warning to the DU Member who is creating the disruption. This is being done in order to tamper down posts in other boards indicating that the blocked member did nothing wrong.

We will copy and paste the offensive/disruptive post into the body of that first/last warning post. This is being done due to posters being blocked, then deleting the offensive post.

Please Note Our Statement of Purpose:
Discuss topics and issues which affect the African-American community. DUers from all races are welcome to participate.



All are welcome as long as they bring empathy and positive intent to the group. We experience America differently back here. Our regular subscribers are people who care and who are respectful of our experiences. They deserve a safe place to discuss issues outside of the election process. For our newbies with Positive Intent - welcome.

For those who come to agitate - please note . . . we see you ignore us when the issue does not impact your daily life or belief in candidates/politicians/leaders.

This post was made in agreement with the main hosts and other hosts. The reason why I elected to post it is because my transparency page is blank. I will be able to withstand a spiteful alert and possible hide from a DU Jury.

Thanks in advance,
JustAnotherGen
