I totally agree, Scribbler.  All the drama on the hate sites is nothing but a carefully staged trainwreck.  I think we are doing good work here and we are getting desperately needed information about MK/MLM to the women who are looking for a reason to get out (or not get in!)  That people find fault with the entire mission of the site because of a personality conflict or personal disagreement is LUDICROUS.  Maybe they should take up knitting or frisbee golf or take up yoga to chill out and refocus their restless energy.  No one said they were anti-social, heck they seem to get along with each other over there as long as constant put-downs are allowed and expected.  What a way to live.

There is a definite majority of those who want to know who is involved, and rightfully so…however….imho, those who were affected personally by being fodder for the trash talking feeding frenzy DESERVE to know at whose feet the responsibility for the betrayal can be laid.

I have voted my decision and can live clearly with that choice.  I still feel this person should be banned and not have lurking privileges, because that is essentially what you are giving them.  They will continue to gather information and post it on the trash blog.  Do we really want to give them that power.  I for one say no. 

I do feel sorry for the person because they are misguided and are using bad judgement, I will forgive them their lack of insight, but feel they do not belong in the community, they have abused that  privilege.    You could say I was a foolish for expecting pm’s or email’s to stay private in this day and age, but I have integrity and would never divulge what was emailed or pm’d to me, so in that respect I am naive and it was used against me on a trash blog.  I let my heart move me with my compassion and it only served to be taken advantage of. 

I wish this person would be adult enough to pony up to the table admit they were wrong and go post where they seem more suited.  They can’t have it both ways, you’ve got to wonder what it is doing to their conscience or lack of one.

I have shared PMs (and those involved in those already know it) b/c I received a PM as a result of a positive posting about another person, and the PM totally trashed them. I thought they had the right to know.  Initially I was trying NOT to divulged who sent the PM< but honestly I thought the person being trashed deserved to know that, and had the right to try to deal with it too.

I do think they should be banned, but I also agree we should know who it was… and if there was someone else personally involved with the trashing then they deserve to know who it was!

Don’t worry – I’m not going to leave everyone in the dark about this situation. However, I do want to at least give everyone time to weigh in without naming names and pointing fingers.

It does sadden me that someone who has been trusted to be included in this group would betray us all. And the betrayal hurts because it was done with the knowledge and intent that those receiving the information would ridicule us.

I want people to know that sharing PMs and posts from the general board is not necessarily wrong, and involves a judgment call. I think we ALL know right from wrong in that regard. We know what is “okay” to discuss with others, versus what amounts to gossip and improper discussion of private items. I do tend to give people the benefit of the doubt in that regard.

I apologize to everyone that we can’t feel “safe” here to discuss items of interest to us. I’m doing my best to solve this problem fairly and in accordance with the wishes of everyone here.

Boy have I missed ALOT!!  See what happens when you work overtime!

Just my 2 cents……I better spell each word correct because I just know if I don’t (THEY) will do a post about it again!!  

I voted without reading any of the comments…..it was a easy decision…they should be banned and everyone should know who it is so each person can be careful with that person!!!!!! 

Protecting people here the best you can should be the most important thing period!!

Hmm… I get so caught up in reading the replies to my posts that I miss something like this! 
Part of me thinks that to pay any more attention to this person and the trash blogs just gives them what they want. That we know what is right and we should just ignore them and go on with life.

But I don’t like it that personal attacks have been launched and privacy and confidentiality have been violated.  That part of me thinks that if you aren’t willing to play nicely you shouldn’t be allowed to play at all.

I promise I’ll vote soon, I just have to do more thinking and testing out the guest function, etc.

Thank you Tracy for letting us in on this decision.  It helps us understand your position as moderator better and the sticky situations that you have to deal with.  You truly are a woman of integrity and I appreciate that.

I have been thinking about the whole thing some more and would like to put this out here.  I think we deserve to know who it was that is posting here and using it against us.  We will have their Pink Truth name, but will we have their trash blog identity as well?  I think we should have both if we know it, then we know exactly who we are dealing with in the cyber world, because one without the other is useless, presumably they post under a different cyber identity on the trash blog.  But in the end it doesn’t matter, because they will just change that I’m sure.

I am still shocked that someone would be acting like this.

Possibly this individual will feel some guilt now and may just go away on their own.

Tracy I thank you for running the site, but I don’t envy you the job!

I guess this is what I get for not venturing into other anti-blogs  LOL I have no idea the hatred and pettiness out there… although, I do wonder about the hate mail we rip apart at times.  I guess the difference is when people send hate mail here… they 1) have been paying attention long enough to know what will happen 2) started with provoking themselves 3) are fully aware that their message may get posted… unlike having your stuff posted elsewhere.

In the end though, it comes down to what I had to tell another very immature person in my life’s circle who was mad that people knew things about her life… you CAN”T post anything on the web and expect it to be secure.  There are ways to make it more secure, but essentially you have to know anything you put out there CAN be used.  It is just sad when they use it to ridicule.

The SDs and NSDs out there putting things out and having sites I think are a bit exempt from the “leave them alone” only because they are in positions of power that people are told to look up to and emulate.  In order to do that (or not) you have to know what you are looking at.

Ok, I voted. I guess if the problem really is the copying and pasting of posts, there’s only one real choice to make sure that doesn’t happen anymore.

Gosh…now that I have a real job….I have not been on the discussion board till today…so I was blissfully ignorant of anything going on.  I have never found a trash blog…thank goodness….and don’t even know how to get one….thank goodness…again!  However, I do find it sad that someone should come and pull out PM’s and other things to make fun of this site or the people on it.  Violating trust is something we all know too well when we have been in the MLM world.  This site is to protect all who come here.    We have women who have just left…women who are on the way out etc.  Our promise is to provide a place of information and healing.  So….I feel the only way we can keep things safe is to ban a person who has used discussions and other things on sites that are negative only.  My goodness….wouldn’t you all think that if other sites are anti-MK they would have enough on their hands in dealing with MK instead of bashing another site who is also anti- mk?  I don’t get it.  But I love what Marvelous Light says:  “You can’t fix stupid”.  I hate to ban anyone….I love giving second chances….but….and here is the clincher in my estimation – we all came here knowing the rules and trying to play by them.  When someone violates the rules and then does not come forward and admit it…they should go.  Just my two cents for the day!

That’s a good point. There are rules listed quite clearly for all to read.  They list our expectations for behavior on PT, and the consequences of not doing so.  They should be expecting some sort of punishment if not banning for their behavior.

OMG!!  I’ve been off the board for a couple of days and see what I miss!  I haven’t read through the entire thread yet, but I wanted to say that I feel completely betrayed (which probably doesn’t bother “whoever” at all) on the one hand and extremely saddened on the other!  If this were a face-to-face situation, I’d ask for a sitdown and try to talk through this … to come to some sort of understanding and possible reconciliation.  BUT, this is cyber-space and I’ve been on the other boards and I know what they’re saying about my friends here (heck, maybe they’ve taken to talking about me, too, I don’t know) and I simply have no tolerance for it!  It is beyond juvenile … it minimalizes and degrades human beings in the cruelest way … gain their trust, then betray it for the entertainment of like-minded individuals … use their words against them and do your best to shame them to the masses!  Banning from PT entirely will fuel their fire, but I don’t want to deal with them at all right now!!

Okay, this has obviously struck a chord with me, huh?!!!  Honestly, I have to leave b/c I’m going to start crying … stuff like this hurts so bad … dammit!!

ML, there are a whole range of emotions from anger to hurt, betrayal and apathy here… and I think most of us have run the gambot of it… I sadly am now wondering if I know who it is b/c they are someone I would have expected to weigh in here, and they haven’t.  I hope I am wrong.

I agree with Apple about the whole range of emotions, but I don’t think apathy is playing a part in it at all.  I think most of us are now very cautious about what we post because we don’t want to be fodder on a trash blog.  Regarding pm’s if someone pm’s you  I feel that it should be kept confidential to a point, when it is injurious to someone else the administrator/moderator of the board should be advised and the party that is being maligned should be told of the person to protect themselves, probably they will have or will be dealing with the person and not even know what they think of them.  Does that make sense.

Yes, it does, that is why I shared the PMs that I did… I thought the person being trashed should know.  And… you are right, they were dealing with the other person and had no idea of the negativity.

I have been thinking a lot about this… it is times like this when faced with a moral dilemma that we reach into ourselves and our teachings and examine our moral core to make sense of what went wrong and try to understand how to get back to a happy equilibrium, so please forgive me because I wrote a small book here… just trying to work out my feelings…

No one likes a Gossip. 

Carrying tales out of context from one place to another for entertainment or sport or ridicule is just low-down dirty.  Idle gossip breeds distrust and paranoia, and literally kills relationships, reputations and even livelihoods.  

Gossip is harmful behind closed doors, or by phone, or in a small town.  But the damage a Gossip can do has taken on a global scale in the internet age.  Our MOLE is a Gossip, but the hate blog owner who publishes and carries our Gossip’s tales for her is truly EVIL.  Those who post on those blogs for the purposes of cheering or being entertained by this behavior are the ones who delight in Listening to the Gossip.

In my religious tradition there is a special word for gossip, and it is likened to murder as it can affect your ability to even exist in society or your community, and it has three components.  You can think of it as if there are three evils of Gossip:  The one who Gossips, the one who Listens, and the one who Carries the Tale back to the victim.   Choosing to not take part in gossip can be such a difficult daily struggle, but succumbing to gossip is just plain wrong.  Resisting Gossip takes spine and guts and heart and a lot of love.

Being a Gossip is evil for all the reasons we know and we can never ever fully retract our words, even if we have a change of heart, because we know not where our words will end up or how far our gossip will travel.  Listening to a gossip is evil as it colors your opinion of the victim without benefit of your own direct interaction.  A Gossip should always be directed back to her victim to work things out.  But the one who carries and repeats a Gossip’s tales as told back to the victim of gossip is even MORE evil, as that action is designed to give the perpetrator the satisfaction and delight of witnessing the harm done by the careless words.  And so we must be careful when it becomes necessary to warn a victim of gossip that we do not cause her further harm by quoting the Gossip’s evil words in their hurtful entirety.

There are times when one must warn another for her safety, and that is not gossip but is a righteous act.  That is stewardship.  And the entire mission of Pink Truth is to warn others about MK/MLM and I am so happy we are now doing this in a manner that does not involve gossip or harming anyone’s good name.  We are very careful even to protect folks who go ahead and attach their own names to hate mail.  I think we are doing much good with that by erring on the side of caution and having a blanket policy.  And we are setting up expectations in others of how they will be treated here.  And make no mistake, Whistle Blowing with FACTS to help save others from great harm is not gossip. 

Knowing the difference between a personal disagreement or a true safety issue can be difficult for some.  We must always take care when warning a community or a community member about another, and be absolutely certain we are right and have the facts on our side when making accusations.  When in doubt the best thing to do is keep what we say limited to ourselves and our own experiences and leave another’s name out of it.  For instance, some of the most effective stories from Raisinberry or SuzyQ comes from them telling their OWN stories, not naming their uplines or whatever.  There are so many lessons to be learned from sharing our own experience.

When there is a clear indication that an alarm must be sounded we should still err on the side of extreme caution.  I am glad we have a “report to moderator” feature so that we can alert the board owner of inappropriate PMs or posts  (and I agree with HH and apple berry that we take care to notify the victim only when necessary, but to be sure to do it in a helpful and not hurtful way so that she will know to take care in future interactions and keep herself safe from the Gossip.) 

This entire post about our current MOLE situation (“About the person who is copying our posts”) on PT, for instance, is helpful as we have managed to keep the focus on US and what WE are going to do about having a Gossip/MOLE in our midst.  And I am very proud of us for that.  Because the important thing for us to decide is what we are going to do about it, and if we are going to allow gossip to flourish here.  The fact that we have all agonized over what to do speaks volumes about the character of each woman here, and I am proud to be in your company.

It is looking like when given the opportunity, this community will police itself.  And that is a good thing.  So far the vote looks like it is leaning toward expelling the Gossip.  But the important thing is that we are coming to a consensus about how to proceed in the future when faced with a dilemma like this.  It is my sincere hope and faith that most people are good, and most people operate within the Golden Rule and solid ethics.  I am choosing to trust that this community is made up of decent people and that incidences like this will be few and far between. 

We are setting a great example, we are taking the high road, and we are proving the Haters and the Gossips wrong everyday!!!

WOW PUR!!! That was sooooooooooo nice! Many good points.  
See, this is the reason I voted to ban. It detracts from what we have to accomplish. If only for a minute, it still detracts.
On the flip side, because there is always a positive following a negative, we have all had the chance to see the passion our fellow pters have on maintaining the integrity of this blog. It is admirable. The mole within us will realize they have not only lost priviledges to being part of this community, but also, the potential to grow and be about something other than themselves. And that, is the harshest message of all.
But, she made her choice and now it is time to take her medicine. Simple and Plain.
My vote still stands, ban and let’s move on. This kind of situation even makes chat uncomfortable. Because now we know someone has dishonorable motives and we have no idea who she is.
I have read a couple of those blogs and stopped when the threats to Tracy surfaced. I do not condone violence, be it cyberspace or actual life. We have a beautiful growing community here and anyone who tries to disrupt that should just go away…..

I will tell you that all of this has affected me in my posting on PT.  At first I was going to lie low or leave, but then their bullying behavior wins and that is another evil.  It has however brought my guard up to a higher level and I honestly hate that.  I see what is has done to my friends here and it makes me outright mad.  I will not accept this person in the community, that is my feeling, because the level of trust has been violated plain and simple.  I am very forgiving by nature, and will forgive this individual, but they must move on because I will always feel they have the potential to do harm again and it undermines the community as a whole.

HH    I totally understand, and I REALLY hope you don’t leave… seriously.

Apathy came in, b/c there are still many people who have been silent, and who haven’t voted.  That may be too harsh.  They may actually have lives and have not checked in

yeah, HH, that pretty well sums it up for me, too!

after my earlier post today, I honestly sat here and cried … my poor DH was freaked out … the whole thing just breaks my heart, though, and the emotion needed to go somewhere!  I suppose I’m just a   baby!

If there are 40 of us voting and 30 have already checked in then we are closing the gap pretty fast.  I think Tracy is keeping this open until tomorrow (right?) to give everyone an opportunity to weigh in.   We’ll be okay… and the important thing is we are not just sitting by and allowing this person to continue to make  a mockery of our community.

Betrayal is the worst abuse in friendship.  Many of us have been betrayed by our directors,  recruiters, nsds in MK and we expect better at Pink Truth.  Isn’t it great that here, we have so much understanding & support.  We can express our feelings, not always agree, and still feel loved and respected.   You all can count on ME whenever you need me.  You have helped me more than you’ll ever know.  This whole situation is unfortunate but it will create a tighter bond between us.
When this is resolved tomorrow, let’s all take the lesson and throw away the experience…and move on to our greater purpose!

Is this person still allowed to wander freely through PT?  Is she reading all our posts right now and laughing with her cronies?  Or was she given a temporary ban from the “In The News!” board?

Jeez, I leave the computer alone for a day or day and a half and all    breaks loose.  I hate immature Jr. High-ish drama.  I think banning the person will fuel the fire but on the other hand do we want them having continued access to our words to copy and post elsewhere with ill intent?  I guess I missed whatever happened.  I’ll have to go back and read all 9 pages more thoroughly, but I’ve read enough to get the basic idea.  I vote that the person should be banned.  We should not allow ourselves to continue being victimized in fear of retaliation by the “Mole”.  There’s my 2 cents.

PS: did they copy any of my posts/comments/PMs??  Just curious if I’ve been gossiped about, I guess I need to take my own advice about not letting it affect me.  I can’t help wanting to defend myself if they have.

Done!  But thanks for the reminder    I’m here to stay too.  This is the 1st forum/cyber-group that I’ve been part of, and I’ve (until now) been pleasantly suprised by how comfortable, welcoming, and honest the environment is here.  Let’s keep it that way.  There are surely plenty of other groups out there to join, but I probably wouldn’t be as trusting elsewhere.  Don’t let this ‘mole’   on our parade!

Everyone please have patience for just a bit longer while we give the last few people a chance to leave their comments. I don’t know of any of you being “played” at this moment… I will explain as best as I can soon. And then we will move forward.

I hate that this has happened. But the worst thing we could do is let this change everything we do. Yes, we should be cautious with personal details on the internet. But we can and should still talk to each other as a community.

Hang in there everyone… I think the worst is already behind us.

I just get badmouthed with great regularity by the “anti-PT” blogs.  

What’s interesting is that after every bashing and badmouthing I get a spike of readers on my “Predators in Pink” article.

So bash away, girlfriends.

Tracy,
Aren’t “moles” little rat like creatures that retreat into holes and tunnels underground for safety?
They are ugly and very hard to kill if you’ve ever had them in your yard.  The only way to get rid of them is to whack them over the head with a shovel when they come out of their hole!    
So we can either whack away here OR plug all the holes so the mole can’t see the light of day   ….at least on PT!  Whatever the mole decides to do underground   won’t matter.  We   won’t have to see it anymore!  
(thought it was time for just a little humor on this subject!  Tracy, can’t you find a little “mole” icon for us.  We would just love that!)
I love you all!

For some reason this scripture has been coming to my mind a lot lately … I’ve considered it in relation to MKCs and NSDs reactions to PT and in relation to the “hate blogs” … this is from the Book of Acts, Chapter 5 and it has to do w/Peter and other apostles being brought before the authorities b/c of the things they were preaching and saying (in regards to Jesus) … I’m not trying to take scripture out of context or make some wrong application, but I keep thinking that Gamaliel’s words to the Sanhedrin might be very wise words to those who keep coming against PT and this website!

33When they heard this, they were furious and wanted to put them to death. 34But a Pharisee named Gamaliel, a teacher of the law, who was honored by all the people, stood up in the Sanhedrin and ordered that the men be put outside for a little while. 35Then he addressed them: “Men of Israel, consider carefully what you intend to do to these men. 36Some time ago Theudas appeared, claiming to be somebody, and about four hundred men rallied to him. He was killed, all his followers were dispersed, and it all came to nothing. 37After him, Judas the Galilean appeared in the days of the census and led a band of people in revolt. He too was killed, and all his followers were scattered. 38Therefore, in the present case I advise you: Leave these men alone! Let them go! For if their purpose or activity is of human origin, it will fail. 39But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop these men; you will only find yourselves fighting against God.”

I think others just protest so much and kick against the truth so much that in the end they only make themselves look foolish … the truth will always prevail no matter who comes against it!!

Okay, I’m done … for now … off to church!  Thanks for your words of encouragement and truth … you keep me sharp … as iron sharpens iron!

Marvie,
Thanks alot…..on this Sunday morning, I’m talking about “whacking” moles on the head and you are quoting scripture!  

OK, now seriously, THANK YOU for sharing this with us.  It is perfect and I read it and re-read it 10 times.  (does that mean I don’t have to go to our church service in 1/2  hour???!!!!!   )
Just….thank you for taking the time and caring enough to share this.  You are a very special person and I wanted you to know how much I appreciated hearing those words this morning.

Membership in the PT community is a privilege, not a right.  We are here to help one another. We have fun, too.  But the “mole” has crossed the line by copying and pasting our posts on the trash blogs.    She needs to just stay over there.

You gals are all great!  I appreciate your friendship and support!  You all have to remember one thing, when they are attacking they are not attack you, they are attack your screen persona.  When I really thought this out it didn’t seem to bother me so much anymore.  The only time it gets really personal is if they actually know you and for that I have no tolerance and they should be as an umpire would say
“Your outta here!!!!!”

    hahahahaha I love how they have a MISSION. They are helping inform desperate women. OMG it’s just like working at the battered women’s shelter. Or fighting cancer. Or helping a refugee from an evil totalitarian regime. WOW this impressive important work of telling gullible people who think they’ll get rich doing something 50 bazillion other people are doing, that it’s not true.

    A basic business course, or a modicum of life experience will teach them the same thing. Damn, what would people do without PT?

    Is it just me, or does it seem a bit like the higher they can push their victimhood, the less they have to take personal responsibility for being a tard. There is no longer any shame in being a moron, cause you get to blame an evil company that took advantage of you. Forget the fact that to be taken advantage of that hugely by something like MKC you have to be a complete tard. Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.

    Yes, Tracy is ever so powerful that she will not only ban and out that dirty mole on Pink Truth but she will also let you know their screenname on the ‘trash blogs’. Are you kidding me? You really think she has that much power?

    ScrewU said “Are you kidding me? You really think she has that much power?”

    Um yeah, that’s what people think. She has them so scared that they will do anything and everything to stay in her “good graces” but Tracy doesn’t HAVE good graces. She’ll bite you in the ass whenever she wants. And she likes the taste of blood.

    BITCHES

  4. mkrules said

    Maybe I should start a big girls club too…just kidding! What a power trip. I never read PT anymore but this drama is pretty funny.

  5. SillySally said

    UGH, couldn’t read anymore……….too much pompous BS!!!

    Oh boo hoo, ya gossipy bitches!! You don’t like it when the tables are turned AGAINST you huh?? Deal with the Karma!!!!!!!

    And of all the boo-hoo’ers, Sickie is my bet for a mole. That bitch truly is the queen of lying and gossiping, so that’s my vote.

    Did I win a prize????

  6. whateva said

    I vote Sickie as the mole.
