To all members of BC:
Thank you for your understanding, patience, and support during our trials today. The entire staff appreciates you. We will continue to try to make this a clean, safe place to be and pour all of our efforts into it. An extra thank you goes out to all who showed their support through IM, PM, and Email. Makes me proud to be a part of this club.
Rules for the road in the future:
If you see flames, ignore them. Leave a PM or IM or Email for an Admin or Mod (or several) if you see them. Many of you already do this, and this information is invaluable to us. By ignoring these posts, we keep the flames from being fanned further. If there isn't a staff member online, it won't be long.
No 'foreign' poster can hurt my feelings in any way by posting derrogetory remarks about me in retaliation for a well-deserved ban. Let it ride. The respect you show for us makes those insults slide right off. We could care less what others think of us. We do care what you think of us. That'* what matters in times like these.
A special thank you goes out to the BIG boss, Jeff for his quick action when things got dicey. This is a very busy time for him, and it was a sacrifice for him to pull away from his other responsibilities to come and assist. We appreciate the faith he has in us, and hope that he appreciates the faith we have in him. All hail Jeff!
Again, thank you all.
