Does “suspended” mean they could get their privileges back at some point?
 Rain  That’s depressing to think that we can’t decide for ourselves who and when and how to give karma.
I just want to raise my hand too, b/c I think this post got buried in all of the cake.  lol  Do people have the opportunity to earn privileges back? I can’t figure out how you would harass someone with positive karma (I guess I am assuming, and we all know where that gets you, it was positive karma anyhow).  I think it sounds like Not is also concerned that giving friends karma for something would somehow backfire??  I don’t think that is the intent, but it sounds like it is a concern for her.  (as she mentioned being able to chose when to give karma).My real question is, do people ever earn things back? I hope that isn’t a question I will need answered personally, but it is a good general knowledge question, and I don’t see it in the rules, like it is with the certain number of posts earning things…

Privileges can be earned back if behavior improves. I doubt we have to worry about that in this situation.

Dang, Apple!  I gotta give you props, girl, for hanging in there!
Tracy, I’m saddened by the turn of events lately … I don’t even understand your mission anymore … I’ve just tried to be on board with helping women get out of MK or any other MLM, but watching people get verbally smacked down on the boards has just left me stunned.  Straight up answers w/o the sarcasm would benefit everyone and probably decrease the amount of “drama” on the boards … I’m really sorry it’s come to all of this b/c making my decision to leave the pink beast came about b/c of the info on your website and the support I received, but this has just gotten crazy enough for me to say, “stick a fork in me, I’m done!”  The last time I was in a situation where leadership said to those asking questions “stop it, mind your own business and behave” was when a minister on staff at my church turned out to be a sexual predator … it didn’t have to get as far as it did, but those who questioned were silenced and everyone else just looked the other way.  It doesn’t have to be this way … but, the decision is yours.  Thanks for all the help I’ve gotten here, I wish I could have done more …

Apple Berry and Marvie,

How do you propose that the Pink Truth community, Tracy, or the Maven moderators deal with people who seem intent on disrupting the community through use of the discussion board tools, like karma and PM, for the purpose of shifting the focus away from getting information out about MLM and supporting each other to sending hundreds of graffiti-like incessant references to a former member who left on her own accord?  What will it take to get back on track here?

I really want to hear from you both, and I realize that you each have a stake in this discussion because you are both friends with the member who left.  I understand that your loyalties are in play here, and I am seeking to understand how we can help Pink Truth become a better place for all.

jeez PUR, that seemed to come out of nowhere.  I’m guessing there’s more to this thread than meets the eye? 

But I’ll give you my opinion on your question: “What will it take to get back on track here?”

I think marvie actually gave some good answers to your question before you even asked:  first,  open, honest discussion is a great place to start.  Burying the problem clearly isn’t helping.

Second, let’s be nice to each other!  The suspicion, the sarcasm, and the biting comments are a lot of what caused this mess in the first place.

Nice is good.  What suspicion, sarcasm and biting comments are you referring to specifically?  And what is the mess you are referring to, exactly?  Maybe I don’t know what exactly you are talking about, either.

What’s more than meets the eye is that a member lost their Karma privileges, and I hope they can earn them back.  I think pointing fingers at who and when only causes someone else shame, and that is unnecessary.

P.S.  Before the speculation gets going, I do not have anything to do with removal or suspension of member privileges.   I just want us all to get along, shall we?

I believe that openness would be the best way to put information out for consideration by the readers here.  I remember a pastor who told us one Sunday that our church doors were big enough that we could bring our head in.  He was telling us that it is ok to THINK.  That we don’t all have to follow blindly, that we could question how things were done and what was being said.  This was a very devout soul and he meant it when he said that.

MK can be a totally controlling force in lives.  As others have said here, it can be like of a cult.  Many posters on this site have been extremely helpful and supportive of newly emerging consultants/directors.  But we can’t all think the same thoughts now!  If that happens/is enforced, then PT becomes no better than MK.  At least that is my opinion.  Some of the banning/privileges taken away activities have troubled me.  After thinking it over (a lot!), it is appearing that PT is edging towards a controlling force.  Some are afraid of posting their opinions if they disagree with certain people on here. 

We humans are weak, and we all have different personalities.  I think an open forum is a great way to discuss topics.  Now this does not mean that I would want bullies to be allowed to run roughshod over all because then, again, we will have people unwilling to open themselves to possible abuse.  But open conversation over opposing points is NOT bullying.

In my first sentence, I stated …I believe that openness would be the best way to put information out for consideration by the readers here.  I think if information is put out into the “fresh” air, it will stir things up for the moment but then we go on.  Secretiveness and retaliation will only serve to cause more unease and distrust.   Kinda like when someone gets sprayed by a skunk.  If you put it out into the sunshine, the odor will fade away as will your memory of that odor.  If you take off the garments you are wearing and shut them away in a dark, closed space, the odor will permeate everything near it and I don’t think it ever truly goes away.  And you will never want to open that closet/box again!

I may be a pollyanna, but I believe in the fairness of people.  I think that when you allow people to know the whole truth, see all sides of it, they will come to a fair conclusion.  If they do not agree with you, they will move on to a place where they are more comfortable, and that is OK.  But controlled information or no information will only serve to cause more discord.

Hope I explained myself here.  Sometimes I am as clear as mud!  I have learned a lot here at PT, and would like to see open discussion continue and encouraged, so that others can also learn.

I love a good mystery.

What if…………what if…………a large Cosmetics Daycare that had unscrupulous tactics and overpriced fees, had a competitor down the street that shouted from the rooftops about how bad the daycare was….and no matter what the nasty daycare did, they couldn’t shut their competitor up? So one day, they decided to sign up their own children at the competitors daycare…just to iritate the children, poison the food and make messes…so that the Good daycare had no time or energy to get the facts out about the nasty one.

What if ???

I’m just saying.

Here is a solution: Tracy refrains from sarcasm since it doesnt transfer as humor on a typed page, Or else you need a special happy face guy that everyone recognizes as Tracy’s sarcasm guy….AND, anyone gets a quick email message if they are doing questionable things, BEFORE any privileges are suspended, so that they know why or can explain themselves, thereby maintaining a grown up professional relationship…OR, anybody who says or shoots out something REALLY FOUL, gets all privileges shut down, then the email, then they can respond however they want.

Never forget the mentally ill DO visit here. And some of you know who you are.

Yeah, I don’t see any point to pointing fingers either (no pun intended).  That’s definitely not what I’m trying to do. If we are honest with ourselves, we know that there are four fingers pointing back at us, right?

Re: sarcasm, sniping, biting comments — I think if you look through past threads (and this one, too), you’ll see examples from many people. I think these types of comments are born out of frustration by Tracy and other members of PT. Some comments (again, look through this thread) don’t even seem to be biting/sarcastic on first glance, but people take them that way and post their own biting/sarcastic comments, and you end up with a fairly unpleasant thread that didn’t have to be that way.

And I am  sort of surprised you are asking me what this mess is, but if it’s unclear, I meant the fact that there has been a mass exodus of PT members in the past couple of weeks as well as posts on other blogs about the subject.  Look at marvie’s post above for an example.

A former member has left the building. 

Note this: she left on her own.   I know some people who are close to her miss her and are confused by the situation.    I think in an effort to respect her privacy and not engage in gossip about her situation and why exactly she no longer wanted to be here and was eventually no longer welcome by the site administrator, this allowed only her side of the story to circulate and people are now actively trying to disrupt the community on her behalf.

I think this is a very unfortunate situation.  Truly.  And how do we move on without sinking down in the mud and start slinging what amounts to gossip back and forth?

A member used to participate at Pink Truth.  She left of her own accord.  END OF STORY.

Suspension or removal of member privileges needs to be a very last resort in my opinion.  In a community this size, sometimes it is a necessary action.  My hope is that this is an exceedingly RARE occurrence, that becomes rarer still.  However there are folks who seem to be trying to provoke such a response to see — what?  I don’t honestly know. 

If you are looking for more information on what the fuss is about with the member who left, I do not know that you will ever get the whole story.   Tracy is discreet and actually seems to care enough for this person and the members and visitors to Pink Truth to not air her dirty laundry.  So can you live with that?

P.S.  Define mass exodus.  Out of 2,600+ members only a handful even know who the heck we are even talking about.

Unbelieveable—you are so right..the 3 fingers pointing back never quite get their full appreciation.

No I think the reason that alot of the reasons why  conflicts between people were not aired is that it didnt put the individuals in a very good light. This might surprise some, but if Tracy were to bring to light the whys and wherefore’s… “out in the daylight”…what you think you believe about people, or who you think they really are, would be dashed. I am sure there are people here that never in their wildest dreams would have imagined that women who appeared noble or upright or intelligent on this blog , would align themselves with others celebrating the opposite.

Anyway, at that point, sharing words spoken in anger is gossip, and defamatory and serves no positive purpose. I think I can safely say and get all of you to agree with me, that we do not have all the facts out in plain view. Right? And isn’t it always funny how when a person gets to say why they did or said something, we usually have a “oh NOW I understand” moment?
How ironic is it that by Tracy moving on and not dishing her side, is allowing for some individuals to influence others, with partial information. Taking the highroad almost always has some personal costs.

What may look like “controlling” behavior is simply frustration. And I would also guess that if Tracy is now reading this post..she is probably saying, “Why do I let my sarcasm fly?”

Get a sarcasm button Tracy, we need one!

I’m not asking for deep dark secrets to be brought out now, just asking that differences in opinion be allowed without ‘privileges’ being taken away.  A child being punished ‘just because’ will rebel and more trouble will soon follow.

I agree, I also do not like sarcasm.  And please be assured that in the rare instance that privileges are suspended it is not arbitrary and it should, and does, also accompany a warning whenever possible. 

As we all know,we are dealing with the general public from across the internet, so bear with us while Tracy and the Maven moderators do the best we can to provide a safe, caring, and nurturing space that the entire Pink Truth community can enjoy.

C’mon PUR,  stop fighting.  Nice, remember?

But, that’s okay, this is fine, I asked for openness and honesty and I’ve gotta be willing to read it, huh?  Totally agree with you on the banning front.  I think the banning thing has gotten much better, in fact, I don’t know of anyone who’s been banned recently, so that’s good.  I liked raisin’s idea too, though you can always just add a “Jk” or a smiley face.  And I obviously agree with pinkmomster on the openness thing.  Yay, openness. So see, we’re already improving things!

But seriously, post nicely!  That last post made me feel like I was being scolded by my 3rd grade teacher. Smiley (and she wasn’t so nice).  

Oh jeez, this is a hot thread, apparently four (now five!) posts were posted while I was typing this one.  Anyway, what you say about frustration, raisinberry, is exactly what I said in my original post.

I’m actually not asking for the reasons why people are banned ( I agree with pinkmomster on this point).  I don’t think that’s so important.  The “openness” thing refers to just being open about our thoughts and feelings about how things are run now.  We should feel free to voice our concerns.  Like I said above, I think that is getting a lot better, although it is obviously causing some strife with a few members. But strife is okay, as long as we can work it out calmly, rationally, (dare I say nicely?) and with the community’s best interests at heart.

raisin if you just type : sarcastic : this little guy can be your sarcasm “button”  Sarcastic

PUR, I think there are a lot of people (do you want me to guess how many?  30-40?) who used to very much enjoy PT and who now don’t.  Part of why I don’t like it is because people can be so mean.  Look at your response to my question in the question game thread.  You didn’t have to answer my question, but you chose to and you chose to be mean.  I have been on classmates.com because my 10 year reunion is coming up, so that kind of question is on my mind.  If you think it is lame, you don’t have to answer it.  Out of 2500 people, someone will appreciate my question and answer it, right?  I don’t act or speak on other’s behalf.  I just make a lot of emotional decisions and it sometimes gets me in trouble.  I am very much controlled and manipulated by my emotions.

When I nominated the gossip thread for a sticky, it wasn’t on your behalf.  It was something I felt like doing because I like you and I like that thread.  So if I give karma it is not on behalf of anyone.  I like the people that I like based on the information that I have.  I reward people that I like by giving them karma.  Also, like pinkmomster, I am a pollyanna and continue to believe that people deserve to have you judge them based on what they have showed you.  So basically I have a stamp on my forehead that says “Manipulate Me Please”.

Thanks for reading.

I haven’t been posting much since my dad passed away Aug. 7th. Much has had to be done. I finally take some time to come on board and see this post.

Some secret society? I thought this board was for the encouragement of those coming out of the pink fog. This reminds me of the MK SD/ NSD and their ere of superiority.  Cry

Hey Not a Bee-liever,

I am so sorry you did not like my answer on the game thread.  WOW.  I did not mean to offend you, I was making a very appropriate answer to your question.  In fun.   Cry

But you have to admit it was totally humorous and “right on” for that fun thread.   Sarcastic

Since it must have really bothered you, I will answer honestly that I thought I would have a bus full of kids by now.    I look forward to not trying to recruit my classmates at my 20 year high school reunion.

Hi “I” refers to the DISC training that Directors had to go through in many MLMs.  This was a test we would give our consultants to see what motivates them to buy more inventory and not quit the business.  It is very insidious, and PT has many articles on DISC that are being loaded up on the main site.  We can laugh now at DISC, but we were all tested for it!

D’s supposedly made good NSDs, very ambitious, and thrived on training
I’s craved recognition and time on-stage, are the “life of the party”
S’s are very social, loyal and make great friends
C’s are the “locked up in a closet” numbers people

We were supposed to look for D’s and I’s personalities to promote to the next levels.

Can you tell I am not actually a high “I?”   Sarcastic   Here, have some cake.  Cake

jeez PUR, that seemed to come out of nowhere.  I’m guessing there’s more to this thread than meets the eye? 

But I’ll give you my opinion on your question: “What will it take to get back on track here?”

I think marvie actually gave some good answers to your question before you even asked:  first,  open, honest discussion is a great place to start.  Burying the problem clearly isn’t helping.

Second, let’s be nice to each other!  The suspicion, the sarcasm, and the biting comments are a lot of what caused this mess in the first place.
I was going to give unbelievable karma & see there is no applaud under her name. WHY???
I’m confused.  Help
WHY CAN”T WE GIVE KARMA???? Nobody’s name has applaud or boo under it. Please, I would like an answer.

Hm, I dunno, it’s sort of ironic to have this problem on a “karma” thread.  Or I guess less ironic than appropriate.

On my screen, I have “applaud” and “boo” – maybe you have some sort of glitch?  Thanks for trying to give me karma though, it is the thought that counts, right?

I don’t know.  I can give you karma!  If you are having difficulty, you should PM Tracy and alert her to your problem.

I think we are having some technical difficulties.  Everything looks weird on my screen.  I see a big blank space on the board and have to scroll down to see anything.  It is affecting the karma thing too.

    I haven’t even read this whole post. But wanted to say:
    Go Apple!
    and
    Tracy is a bitch
    and
    Mavens are NOT moderators, they don’t even know what they do

    back to reading

  2. Mentally Fucked by Tracy said

    Ugh. Glad I’m out of that fucked up mess.

  3. Mentally Fucked by Tracy said

    Actually, PUR is a moderator. She’s got moderator powers. I sent duh a thread that showed PUR moving a thread.

  4. PrincessSnore said

    Marvelous Light’s comment seems to be missing. Here is what she said:

    “Dang, Apple! I gotta give you props, girl, for hanging in there!

    Tracy, I’m saddened by the turn of events lately … I don’t even understand your mission anymore … I’ve just tried to be on board with helping women get out of MK or any other MLM, but watching people get verbally smacked down on the boards has just left me stunned. Straight up answers w/o the sarcasm would benefit everyone and probably decrease the amount of “drama” on the boards … I’m really sorry it’s come to all of this b/c making my decision to leave the pink beast came about b/c of the info on your website and the support I received, but this has just gotten crazy enough for me to say, “stick a fork in me, I’m done!” The last time I was in a situation where leadership said to those asking questions “stop it, mind your own business and behave” was when a minister on staff at my church turned out to be a sexual predator … it didn’t have to get as far as it did, but those who questioned were silenced and everyone else just looked the other way. It doesn’t have to be this way … but, the decision is yours. Thanks for all the help I’ve gotten here, I wish I could have done more … “

  5. freefrompt (sickie/happy) said

    Oh for heavensake PUR – ok here we go again from something I posted previously this am:

    For the record I feel that PUR did everything in her power to make sure my privileges were taken away (and I wasn’t karma-spamming anyone or smiting anyone).

    A week later I could no longer view my own profile and my message tab (to receive and send PMs) went MIA. I’d bet $$ that PUR had her hands in that too.

    It’s funny cuz the last two privileges were taken away AFTER a POSITIVE thread about me was posted by someone I had done consignment work for on PT and several commented on it. The thread was deleted at the same time my privileges were taken away. At that moment I decided to I log out and never looked back.

    The next day around noon (I hadn’t logged in to PT) I got an e-mail from Tracy that IMO was very obviously written by PUR and modified by Tracy.

    If I am wrong on any of these comments, PUR can certainly contact me. She has my e-mail (both hotmail and my real e-mail and home phone # – we were good friends at one time or so I thought) and can set the record straight at any time.

    Until then, I will go with what I believe in my heart to be true. Don’t get me wrong – Tracy is the one who spawns these thoughts in people’s heads, then sits back and watches someone else do her dirty work. I get that, I do. Tracy used me for her dirty work too and I am ashamed at my actions.

    PUR – you know where I am if you want to set the record straight.

    Additionally – I was officially “banned/blacked out” within 4 days of receiving Tracy’s e-mail that I was welcome to post on PT (without privileges).

  6. Strawberry Shortcake said

    What did Not ask that PUR was mean to her?

    PUR’s 2-facedness (like my new word) is really shining in the above thread.

    I think PUR is a “special” maven. All the rest of the mavens are just a word under their name. Someone correct me if I’m wrong.

  7. freefrompt (sickie/happy) said

    ***Standing ovation to Apple and Marvie***

  8. ChineseAmbassador said

    WOw- what a bunch of lunatic communist freaks. These ladies need to read a biography about Stalin or Mao.

    People just disappear, priveleges disappear willy-nilly, and we certainly aren’t getting any NOTICE before being banned/smacked down….

    At least some of the normal people are starting to ask questions and get weirded out by Tracy.

    And Raisinberry is still an idiot.

  9. I Love Retards said

    Retards. You gotta love ’em. My favorite TARDS of the day are:
    PUR
    Tracy
    Raisinberry

    Those 3 are certifiable, IMHO. And what in the hell is Raisinberry smoking? What part of C-U-L-T does she not understand? At least in Mary Kay she was making some money while manipulating, controlling, directing, guilting, shaming, and fleecing. Now she’s just blindly following her “leader” (cough) and sickeningly sold-out to this PT mission. HELP ME PLEASE: What is the PT mission? Does anyone know anymore?

    These women appear to have oodles of time on their hands, as evidenced by their disturbingly stupid threads and their ridiculous verbal beat-downs of one another. Good grief, get over it already. Move on to something REAL. Tracy is just using these people to make herself popular and renowned in the anti-Mk world. They can’t actually believe that they are making a difference. Can they?

    RETARDS.

  10. foxspirit1 said

    Geez a lot has happened since this morning! do you think Tracy and/or Pur will ever “get it”? Or is that silly wide-eyed optimism?? I guess I don’t see Tracy getting it, as she has been pretty silent letting PUR fight the battle for her.

  11. throwinguppink said

    Morons. Period.

    For those questioning the lunacy of that board, do yourselves a huge favor…

    LEAVE. LEAVE.

    And, yes, PUR and RB are too lost in her ass to see the light.

  12. Duped said

    So, has Marvie left the building then??? It seemed from her post that she has…interesting.

    PUR and Raisin are licking the fudge popsicle so much, it’s astounding.

    Fart knockers

  13. I Love Retards – too funny. Personally, I think Tracy is a Fucktard! And this whole issue over karma and who can and cannot give it. Ridiculous! For fuck sakes, get over it people and realize you have just traded one addiction/cult for the next. MK to PT. Hang up your PT socks and quit filling Tracy’s big head with more air. She needs some deflating.

  14. or lipo….

  15. Frozen Tootsies went off to enjoy lunch with some friends and look what she finds when she logs back in. Waay too many words from PT to read all the way through. But thanks for the song and the cute guy singing it.

    That should be a new rule. If anybody’s gonna post a load of crap from PT they also have to post a really good song video with a cute guy on it.

    Frozen Tootsies just can’t stand to read all that PT thread up there, she just keeps wanting to chant “keep the drama for yo mama.”

    Yep, over at PT they didn’t treat some people right including FFPT – and now it’s all getting waaay tooooo straange over there. Frozen Tootsies prefers that if things get strange, there be good music, food and drink involved, and preferably a nice swimming pool too. With pool boys.

  16. Marvie said

    Yeah, I left the building! I’ve spent too many years dealing w/passive aggressive people who hide their manipulating ways behind veils of … oh, let’s say, SARCASM … and this morning I passed my tipping point … I’m so very, very sick of the bullying that goes on, but is explained away as “Oh, I’m just being sarcastic, that’s how I am, you misunderstood me, oh woe is me, why am i so persecuted and maligned, no one understands my genius, i’ll get you my pretty and your little dog … blah, blah, blah!”

    I had to laugh b/c PUR really wants to hear from me and apple! Well, PUR, you did hear from me! Just reread my post, I’m fairly articulate and easily understood … let the questions be asked, answer them (seriously, answer them!) and answer them honestly w/o dishing up a side of sarcasm, stop reacting to everything and take the time to respond (there is a big difference), let the dialogue play itself out instead of locking the thread and creating your own drama over there! Oh, and by the way, yes, I do consider Happy a friend, but I know better than to follow people out the door w/o seeing things firsthand for myself … as of today, I’ve seen enough to make an INFORMED decision!

    Stay tuned, folks, for the next installment of “When Blogs Go Bad!”

  17. Duh said

    Hi Marvie!

    Wait a minute…
    Were you ever mean to me?

    Oh hell, I don’t care. Welcome!

  18. Marvie said

    Duh, I’m sure I was mean to you, I have a wicked mean streak sometimes and a mouth that often overruns my ass! I do apologize for drinking the brown koolaid and believing the “Duh” stories… no excuses, no one else’s fault, I own it and I’m sorry! Thanks for the welcome, very gracious of you!

  19. Dana said

    Okay, love that Tracy was compared to a sexual predator.

    Love that she once again stirred the pot and then left for PUR to deal with the fallout.

    And when she answered about “If behavior improves…..” I had a flashback to when I taught first graders “If your behavior improves, I’ll let you earn recess back.”

    What an evil dictator!

  20. ChineseAmbassador said

    LMAO @ the “if their behavior improves”

    OMG she really cannot see herself.

  21. Not a Bee-liever said

    I’ve left the circus because of my bad behavior. It was my choice. I was acting out and not happy with myself. I have been considering options for about a month now. Actually, I think today is my one month anniversary of being very confused.

    I just lost hope today and decided I’d better get a life. So, that’s what I’m a gonna do. I’m off to wash the pile of dirty dishes. And I’ll probably start smoking again.

    Karma for everyone!
    Goodbye Cruel World!

    Don’t start smoking again! Most of us just quit.

  23. unbeelievable said

    Hi Marvie and Not a Bee! (and everyone else on BFBF)

    I can’t tell you how excited I am to be on a post that is on the illustrious BFBF. A lifetime goal of mine has finally been achieved. I can’t wait to tell my grandkids.

    Marvie, I posted my comment on PT right after you said you were leaving. I was writing to say goodbye to you (you don’t know me, but I’ve been on PT for a long time, and I love your posts) — and while I was writing it, PUR wrote the comment that was below yours, and I just couldn’t believe her. On that thread, her comments to me are horribly sarcastic — and she is obviously trying to bait me the entire time (e.g., “Define mass exodus.”) I gotta say, PUR, you may have been trying to piss me off, but what you did was make me laugh, hard. You trying to get me an official membership to BFBF PUR?

    Not a Bee, you were one of the last people I enjoyed talking to on PT. Ahora digame, como voy a practicar mi espanol? Hmm? 🙂

  24. freefrompt (sickie/happy) said

    Marvie – you know I love ya girlfriend! You also know I would have been your friend even if you stayed on PT forever.

    Mrs – somewhere on here I read your comment about me having lots of cyber friends. Thanks. I am blessed with many, yes indeed.

    Hey unbeelievable! Congrats.

  25. Wow! How many left PT today? They are dropping like flies!

  26. My Daisy's Better than Your Daisy! said, said

    oh the hell u say PUR: sickie did not leave on her own. you helped all you could and then some. just admit it. you were jealous of sickie’s status and wanted it for your own. it was your dream come true the day you finally werwe able to pull the wool over tracy’s eyes. the big freaking bummer is that you dn’t have sickie’s fun personality and ability to attract people. when it comes to PT – the posters are mosquitos and you are OFF! spray.

  27. Marvie said

    Aww, unbeelievable, thank you! FFPT, I know that’s true, thanks girlfriend!

    I haven’t felt this good since I decided to ditch MK … LOL!

    Oh, and for the record, Tracy, I’ve been lurking here ever since you whined and cried about Duh and PTLies on chat one night … you’re blowing up your own house, chickie!

  28. freefrompt (sickie/happy) said

    My daisy’s better than your daisy – I like your style. THANKS!

    That’s funny that Tracy told all of you about this blog – cuz she told ME too. Heck, I couldn’t find a blog if it smacked me in the face unless someone gave me the link or it was on a blogroll somewhere and I accidentally landed on it.

  29. mkrealist said

    Hey Marvie! Great to see you here! I always knew your heart was too good to stay with the Queen of Mean for too long! Sorry you had to be the target of their insecurities.

  30. Mentally Fucked by Tracy said

    MARVIE! I was there too in that chat!! That’s what brought me here.

    GOOD JOB TRACY! Thanks for making me realize the wool was over my eyes. I’ve found a better place that that fucked up place.

  31. eyesicle/la la Lo-la said

    Hey Marvie, Not, and unbee…glad to see ya!

    Wow….I guess some people can rationalize anything. Run, Raisin, RUN!

  32. freefrompt (sickie/happy) said

    Everyone in *that* chat raise your hand now.

    Whaddya wanna bet 90% of us that were in that chat are on here now?

  33. Dizzy from the Dastardly ways of Tracy said

    HOLY FUCKING SHIT!

    Marvie!!!!! OMG it’s so good to see you over here on BFBF. I haven’t talked to you in AGES! You won the bracelet from MKV and I would have won it but my guess went over by a few hours! LOLOLOL.

    To all you bitches that left PT today, welcome to freedom!!!!

    HOOKERS!!!!!

  34. PC said

    MUHAHAHAHHAHA

    I can’t believe Tracy was so dumb to tell people about the blogs!!! sheesh what a maroon.

  35. Dizzy from the Dastardly ways of Tracy said

    PC…we’ve established that Tracy is a FUCKTARD! LOL

  36. prdiva4 said

    HAAAAAAAAA!

    That’s how I found Me’s blog and Duh’s LOLLLLLLLL

    What a POPSTARD! LOLLLLLLL

    SLUT#4

  37. Marvie said

    Hi, MKRealist, thank you so much … this isn’t the first time you’ve said nice things about me, I’m humbled by your words. It’s good to see you here, too! Queen of Mean! LOL! That’s good!

  38. Marvie said

    DIZZY! OMG, girlfriend, I can’t believe it’s you!! I remember feeling kinda bad for winning that bracelet from you … but only for a few minutes! LOLLLLL! I’m so glad our paths have crossed again! Man, this is gonna be fun!

  39. Marvie said

    Yes, indeed, I have “Left the Freakshow” and it feels so good! LOLLLL! For me, it’s PT, no mo, yo!

  40. Dizzy from the Dastardly ways of Tracy said

    I know Marvie, I was jealous for a minute when you won, but got over it real quick! That was so much fun. Just wait, you will have TONS of fun here. There are more people here that you know that you don’t realize because they use different names! Good times!

    HOOKERS!

  41. Marvie said

    We, who are about to rock, salute you!

  42. Willie Lump Lump said

    “I can’t believe Tracy was so dumb to tell people about the blogs!!!”

    …and the minute she finds out you visited ‘those’ blogs or even posted IN her defense, all you hear from the bitch is ‘is there any reason why we can’t stop giving them traffic? blah blah blah”

    UMM, HELLO DUMBASS, YOU’RE THE ONE WHO BROUGHT IT UP! WTF!!!!!!!!!!

    GAWD she is her own biggest FUCKTARD PATHETISADFUCKER!!

  43. Dominatrix said

    **waving to Marvie, Not, and UnBee**

    OK, I just watched Justin Timberlake’s Labor Day concert for the 2nd time on HBO. He’s effin HOT!!

  44. I feel a group hug comin on.

  45. oy, don’t even try to figure out who’s who…it makes my brain huuuuuurt…(monty python fans, that one’s for you.)

  46. Licious said

    Well hello there everybody. I’m so glad to see more people fleeing from PT. It seems like we’re getting all the good ones. I just got finished reading the rest of the thread over there (which is now locked by the way since TC spoke her peace and got the last word). She says no one gets in trouble for asking questions but when anyone does they’re told to quit stirring the pot and basically mind your own business. How is it that everyone reading this shit can be simple minded enough to just shut the hell up and go along with it? And that shit about there being 2,600 people there and those who have left are only a handfull…. What-the-fuck-ever. I’m sure it’s nothing new but you know that number include most (if not all) of the people here as well as Tracy’s numerous personalities.

    Anyway, kudos to Apple and Marvie for standing up as well as anyone else who goes against the grain. Long live the minority!!!!!

  47. unbeelievable said

    Aww, thanks for the welcome everybody. I feel all warm and mushy inside.

  48. Not a Bee-liever said

    I used to feel special because of karma, but now it’s up to you all to touch me in that special place. Does that make me a slut?

    I didn’t like how some people can boo and not get in trouble and others boo and get scolded for bad behavior. I couldn’t justify some of the boos I’ve seen. I booed someone for annoying me late one night. You know how you have to have 30 posts in order to have some privileges? Well, there was this person who signed on to the discussion board and wanted to make all her 30 posts within her first hour. So that pissed me off and I booed her because I thought she was a troll. She wasn’t even following the rules on some of the threads (anyone remember the TPBM thread?) I think I was jealous because it took me several months to get 30 posts! LOL! I was thinking to myself, “dammit I studied this board (lurked) and tried to get a sense of the etiquette before I jumped in so why can’t she be more like me?” So, several months later, I discovered that my reaction to her was the real problem and she was working the inventory boards; she wasn’t a troll afterall. And I apologized to her by applauding her. So, you see, class, that is how issues get resolved. No one needed to step in and tell me what to do. No one needed to erase the past boo in order to “restore” the karma.

    Since I was a Maven I knew exactly what to do. LOL! That is not true! Actually, I think it is not that I know exactly what to do, rather that when I think I have a good idea I try it out. Booing someone is not a good idea. I learned my lesson.

    I did know my Maven responsibilities because mine was one of the more well-defined (in charge of translation and running the Spanish section) but I was not a moderator by any means. I always found that when I made a suggestion to Tracy, she took it. I thought our relationship was really nice. She has always been very good to me. But she has stunned me several times with her sarcasm and paranoia. I also like PUR. We had a great PM relationship and she has helped me, made me laugh, encouraged me as the Spanish Maven, encouraged me to be honest with myself, given me lots of karma and in many instances she has been a good example, and I will always like her for that no matter what anyone else says. But she has also stunned me with her meanness and self-righteousness. I have been trying to peacefully work things out with Tracy and PUR throughout this past month. I have tried to “move on” and not “stir the pot” and I’ve tried so hard to follow the rules. But it became more than I could handle. I had some really good times at PT and I will miss it.

    Thank you, Duh, for helping me see how unhealthy my behavior was. The counter said I had been logged on for more than 13 days (that means 312 hours). I was still longing to learn more and make more friends, but morale was down. For example, when I said “welcome to PT” to a newbie my heart wasn’t in it anymore.

    I did not leave PT in defense of any one troublemaker.

    I kept debating with myself whether or not to leave. And it was not due to outside influences. It was internal conflict and red flags and a sense of hopelessness. I agree with Licious, “what-the-fuck-evAH”.

  49. I Love Retards said

    Hey Sickie, Dizzy, and others……remember the night Tracy was bitching about Melissa’s blog and Fuchsia’s blog in chat? HA HA HA! Didn’t we all run over there to those too?

    Everybody on PT is lurking here. Even PUR and Raisinberry.

    RETARDS.

  50. Not a Bee-liever said

    I love Retards,

    Remember, it’s not everybody, it’s only a handful.

    Now where is that sarcasm button everybody’s been looking for?

  51. Willie Lump Lump said

    Who owned that other fuschia blog and posting as ‘me two’? Remember that? Tracy thought she was big shot shitty over there. She trashed PLH and its members and now look how her karma has come around and multiplied! Fuckin’ hilarious!

  52. Not a Bee-liever said

    Hey, Willie Lump Lump, is the Boo Boo the Fool screen name still up for grabs? I was thinking about that one yesterday. Felt like a sucker.

  53. Willie Lump Lump said

    Yes, it’s yours if you want it. And welcome by the way.

  54. Not a Bee-liever said

    Thanks!

    Duh, are you around? I sent you an email. 🙂

  55. Justplainoldme said

    I have also left PT. :o(

    I was not there for very long (only logged in for about 2 days – LOL), but I just had enough.

  56. PC said

    YAY It’s the weekend! They’re dropping like flies already!!

  57. Mentally Fucked by Tracy said

    WOW! Welcome JPOM.

    See Tracy, see what a monster you’ve become? You’re a deterrent, nice job! Of course, you’ll blame it on anyone you can just so it makes you feel better that you’re not the problem.

    Keep telling yourself that. Maybe some day that lie will come true.

    NOT!

  58. Justplainoldme said

    PT is just not a very welcoming place for newbies. For someone new that did not even know what was going on, it was confusing as heck.

    I found this blog yesterday (and a few others), and things made more sense (about why people were being banned and whatever), but I had already decided I didn’t want to go back to PT. It is just too crazy and hostile over there on PT. :o(

  59. PC said

    JPOM –

    why don’t you check out PLH. No hostility or anything.

    (another shameless plug – so glad nobody cares) lol

  60. Mentally Fucked by Tracy said

    lol PC. Yes, there are both sides of the spectrum at PLH. No one is banned or yelled at. No power trips or assmunchers [PUR], secret societies or privileges taken away. No stalking or worries about background checks. No fake fraud investigators, no hate sites for PLH. a VERY welcoming community.

  61. Justplainoldme said

    PLH????

  62. PC said

    http://www.PinkLighthouse.com

    there you are. 🙂

  63. Justplainoldme said

    I don’t think I will be around long.

    Seeing as my name has been dragged through the mud on this site for days on end without anyone having the decency to let me KNOW it was being dragged through the mud and at least allowing me the chance to defend myself – no, thanks. A simple pm letting me know would have been appreciated. Instead, I am going through posts and get this thrown at me. Great.

    I didn’t even get the chance to go through all of the horrible comments that were made over the course of 5 or 6 days. I am already in tears. Congratulations, ladies.

    If I made remarks over on the PT board that were considered mean or hateful, I apologize. Some of the comments indicated I had been “horrible” on the PT boards. I don’t recall any, and they have apparently been deleted anyway, but sometimes things come across as mean when typed on a screen. If I have done this, I apologize.

    I did my BEST to not be snarky, hateful or mean to anyone who questioned me on the thread. I tried to be honest and polite to everyone. Too bad the same wasn’t done here for me. :o(

    AND, I emailed Tracy and ASKED her to remove the thread as soon as it started causing problems, BTW. (though she didn’t, obviously) If anyone had taken the time to talk to ME instead of just smearing my name all over this blog, you would have known that.

    PT is a HELL of a lot better than what greeted me here.

    PS –

    I believe mrsmetaphor was upset/offended for something I posted on PT (but I could have gotten the wrong impression – my head is still swimming from all of the hate and bile exuded from all of the comments I just read). I apologize for whatever I did. If you want to chat further about it, that’s fine. My email is shaysotheremail@gmail.com

    Believe it or not, I am actually a fairly decent person. Wish you ladies would have taken a little time to get to know me and find that out.

  64. freefrompt (sickie/happy) said

    Justplainoldme – I didn’t “know” you on PT. I was going as you were comin. I am sure I made a rash decision about your comment on mrs m’s thread in defense of my friend (I was mad at Tracy for the way she was treating several of my friends at the time).

    I’m sorry you got caught in the middle of a thread on PT that was not yours to own (meaning – the problem was NOT you – it was Tracy’s inconsisntency toward MLMs and also the treatment of another member on the board).

    I wish you well in all that you do. You are also welcome to contact me sicknpink@hotmail.com if you would like to further discuss my comments.

  65. Not a Bee-liever said

    Shay! Wait! Don’t go. It’s a sandbox. Shake off the sand. I’m writing you an email right now.

  66. Left the Freakshow said

    shay … sorry, babe … we’ve all been pretty much raked over the coals here at one time or another … and most of us, deservedly so … i went away for a while to gather my wits and realized that TC wasn’t my friend, she wasn’t going to protect me (or anyone else on her board for that matter) and i’d been as eager to drink her koolaid as i was the pink koolaid … tend to your wounds and then determine if you can come back here or not … but, you’d better grow a thick skin ‘cuz it can get crazy over here.

  67. Duped said

    To be honest, Shay, I don’t even recall the thread you are mentioning. I will search for it.

    Listen though, you have to remember that when things get posted here – we trash a lot of people. I would wager good money that most of the posters that are here now were trashed at some point or another by one or all of us. Not everybody here gets along – some out right hate each other.

    You are right – we don’t even *know* who you are. You are merely a name on a screen. Just as I am. This isn’t a slam against you personally – it’s a slam against whatever you may or may not have said, which may or may not have been communicated effectively. You were in a PT fog and that’s okay – most of us here have been at one point or another. You have no idea how many of us have slammed and outright insulted each other – but we move on.

    It’s not that we hate you – we don’t even fucking know you. How can we hate someone we don’t know. It’s just words on a screen. Sure, it sucks to read it sometimes, but shit, you probably wouldn’t even know one of us if you fell on us and vice versa.

    Shit – we insult each other more than we insult PT’ers…LOL.

    Fart knockers.

  68. Marvie said

    Fudge Licker <— Duped

    Gosh, that was easier than I thought it would be! Hmmm? This insulting stuff could be fun after all!

    Asshats!

  69. PC said

    did I miss something? We were trashing Shay? WHen was this? lol

    You know, I better stop insulting Raisinberry and PUR. Because eventually, those two are going to get the boot from PT, and I definitely want them to come over here and spill their guts. When they are ready, of course. I’ll give them the appropriate amount of time to regroup and collect themselves.

    MUHAHAHAHAHA.

  70. Duped said

    Asshats…sweet. Though, I think you can do much better than that, Marvie. C’mon…let it fly.

    I think I lurrrves you, Marvie.

    Fart knockers & hookers – all o’ ya.

  71. Strawberry Shortcake said

    I would love for Raisinberry and PUR to spill their guts. But I don’t have to like them. Raisinberry is tolerable, PUR is plain mean.

  72. Marvie said

    Honestly, Duped, it’s hard for me to let the “naughty words” fly … they just don’t roll of the tongue the way they used to back in the day! Lots of years spent with sweet, little ones will force you to create a whole new swearing vocabulary! Such as:

    SON OF A Biscuit-eater!
    NincomPOOP!
    Holy Mother of Pearl!
    DAMN-A-LAMA DING DONG!

    Having said that, though, I have to admit that all bets are off if someone goes after my family or my peeps! Good grief, then I could make a merchant marine blush! Scares the crap outta my DS who is ex-Marine … and he don’t scare easy!

  73. Shit! I haven’t even finished reading yet, and I can’t beleive it! Raisin: Do you have a headache from the noise when you walk? Because you are so full of shit you squeak!

  74. Not a Bee-liever said

    Why did they have to bring cake into this thread? There are so many inappropriate posts in this thread. The cake is for celebrating someone’s birthday, not for making fun of someone’s questions. Any PT moderators reading here, please update the forum guidelines appropriately.

  75. freefrompt (sickie/happy) said

    My take on ‘have some cake’ (and correct me if I am wrong) in this particular thread is – “stick some cake in your mouth and shut up already”.

  76. PUR is A BiTcH said

    PUR, my wootsie-tootsie sweetie pie….

    stop taking bitch lessons from the queen. Everybody hates you. seriously.

  77. Cheese and rice! It amuses me to no end to see how the vocabulary changes once someone leaves PT!

    Skanks!

  78. flycat said

    Not a Bee, that is so funny. I wish I was a moderator so I could get on there and rant about the proper use of a cake emoticon. LOLLLLLLL Maybe I will email Tracy and tell her as a person who is trying to limit my carbs, I was highly offended by the use of the cake emoticon.

    MEOW

  79. ScrewU said

    Shay
    You have to understand 2 things about BFB. We are not a PT wannabe so things don’t happen here they way they do on Pink Truth. We do and say as we please to any and everybody. You are welcome to rip us to shreds if you so desire. Thats your right and your freedom.

    The other thing is that EVERYBODY gets thrown under the bus while on Pink Truth. If you check things out, you will see that. Noone is exempt from ridicule. You should see how bad these bitches treated Duh on Pink Truth. She was one of the top smited members. Til she was completely deleted. She did start an awesome post on mullets over there. And just ask FreeFromPT what it was like the first day or two that she was here. Trust me… you ain’t see nothing horrible thrown at you.

    If you would like to hang with us, it’s cool. If you decide not to, it’s cool. If you decide to hang out with us and call us names, it’s cool too. You’re call. But we welcome all.

    Now, the rest of you bitches had better start being meaner or PUR will show up here. And how the hell will I live with that?

  80. I'll have a Cosmo said

    Shay,
    I don’t think anyone hates you, hun. Some questions were asked, and I think legitimate ones, regarding your site and what it possibly promoted and/or supported and others got a bit defensive that there would be such questions. I think you handled everything fine, things just got away from you and arguments developed between other members and whether or not people have a right to question things. Usually what is good for the goose is good for the gander but that is not so on PT. TC decides what is good for people. That, my dear, is utter bullshit.
    Please come back and have some fun with us. Let your hair down!
    Cos

  81. Dizzy from the Dastardly ways of Tracy said

    Ok my turn to pipe in here.

    Shay, we were not trashing YOU at all. We were trashing Tracy’s decision to allow you to comment/promote your business when clearly one of her “rules” on PT is peeps are not allowed to promote their businesses/MLMs on her blog. We were using your thread as an example of Tracy only allowing certain people to go against the rules. Don’t take it personally because it wasn’t personal to you.

    In addition, you can say whatever the fuck you want on this blog, none of us give a flying fuck. We’re rude, crude, blunt and over the top. But that’s the way we like it damnit. 99% of the time when we’re cussin at each other, it’s all in good fun.

    No get your panties out of a twist and have some fun damnit.

    HOOKERS!!!

  82. foxspirit1 said

    Dizzy…exactly, AND I said that several times *in* the thread. I tried to apologize Shay, but I have been ousted. My issue had nothing to do with you, and everything to do with a couple of my friends getting thrown under the bus for the same type of thing you were doing. One of them had a shunning and humiliating post stickied for several months so EVERYONE could see how she was treated. I am sorry you got caught in the middle.

    I think they may need a link…all those days of posting all night and TONIGHT they all choose to go to sleep or do the horizontal tango with their hubbalas…

  93. FreeFromPT (sickie/happy2beme) said

    Wahoooo! Thanks for the e-mail invite MKV! Congrats! I posted.

  94. throwinguppink said

    Shay, chill out. We were talking about the inconsistencies on PT. Deal with it! And we all get trashed here at one point or another…

    This is a BLOG. Not real life…

  95. Not a Bee-liever said

    I love how I said, “do you want me to guess how many? 30-40?” and now it seems I have seriously underestimated. Fucking trainwreck.

  96. bluehairedbebe said

    Oh… so this is why the PT site rules got updated today. I never get any cake, damnitt!
