and I too Miss Floyd
an Incredible amount and so I will speak on what I am thinking of relative to the Issue with why He seems to have left for a bit and why We as AdMods have said anything at all - Either to Him as a Member - Or to any of the Membership in reply as to how We've treated Him or any other Members for that fact...Floyd
created this all. Not necessarily the Mechanics of It but the Idea to break off on Our own was His alone, and so all I ever did was provide Bricks and Mortar for It.
He created a place here where Free Speech in absolute respect and understanding was to be the Experience. That We were Family was the Crux, and that We all had to remember to reconnect with not only each other once again - But also Mother Earth...
He asked for Moderators and such as Volunteers, and as I had been thinking in much the same way then - I Volunteered and He "Hired
" Me so to speak - At that time.
To Me Floyd
was always a Voice of Calm in a Sea of Chaos and He always - At least in the beginning - Was able to make Me remember about dipping into the Polarities and how that could be done to Us easily. How Our Strings could be pulled to say It more succinctly.
He hepled Us set the Rules of this Forum and IMO
- It is these Rules that have set up just how special a place this is. Its basically self-moderated and It almost runs Itself due to that...
As Mods - Carol
and I only have three Rules We have to enforce. They are...
1. No Porn.
2. No Vulgarity or Swearing.
3. No Abuse of the Membership by other Members.
Now as Floyd
is a Founder - I will never Delete His ID no matter what He asks Me to do. Sorry Bro
- Its not gonna happen (Throws out a Smooch to Cyberspace Hitting Floyd Middle Forehead
) - But what I will do as I Love Him dearly is talk about why We said anything to Him at all recently.
I will do this however from a place of Love which is where It was intended to come from in the first place. Not that He would decide to Leave but that He would see the reason of what was said and then realize It was out of concern for Him - Not critism of...
Simply put - As a Founder - To bypass Our Swearword Filter Intentionally and go after other Members in an abusive fashion was TOTALLY
out of Character in Our Experience with Floyd
up to this point. It placed Us in a Grey Area where We either had to say something or Carol
and I might have just as well have walked away and left Ya'll...
To state It plainly - How can We as AdMods - Mod this Forum telling others of Our Rules and Moderating Them if necessary for Violating Them - When We can't even ensure that a Founder follows 'em.
Answer - We couldn't let It go. We couldn't and so something had to be said which Carol
did and I totally back Her on saying something. I may have said something else but thats irrelevant as I'm another Aspect and It would be normal that I'd say something similar - Differently. What IS
important to recognize here is that We only said something because with the way We're set up by Our Founder(s) - We simply had to or We had to step down as Mods... Floyd
- The above stated - Come back to Us Bro
when You're ready - We Love You but please, please, please be the example that You espoused to Us in the Beginning. Its really the only way forward Brother
