Nothing to be concerned about @AmiableVince. Minor misunderstanding...happens on occasion. All is well.

Thanks @cyclomatic, I'm glad that everything was cleared up.
Level 9

@cyclomatic  I tried to stay silent but, I have to say something! 


I can’t let that bad, negative behavior be swept under the rug as a guise of  a misunderstanding.

If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck.

That was no misunderstanding! That behavior was vicious, mean and was an attempt to intimidate 0317.

That was bullying and that is not acceptable.

If that behavior is covered up as a misunderstanding then it will happen time and time again.

Personal attacks will quickly ruin a perfectly safe online community.


Moving Forward:

I feel that our community managers should have stepped in and refocused the conversation. With that said, I know you can't be everywhere all the time.


It was over by the time I arrived on the scene or you know I would have thrown my hat in the ring.


I am grateful that @Hotrod  stepped in when he did. He handled the situation like the pro that he is. But, even after that @Privetfla  threw out a bit more shade. Unbelievable.


@0317  offered an apology and moved on! Thank You!


@StevenY@Privetfla needs to recognize their part in this mess and apologize to 0317 and everyone else who witnessed that bullying behavior.


Honest awareness helps us to move forward in a productive way.

Admin was long ago notified @Hotrod. Even before you stepped in. I won't go on to re-hash or address any accusations made against me. I'm fine allowing @Elin & @Mj_206 to handle matters. There's really no need to continue this.

@cyclomatic Yes I notified them way before I stepped in as well, @Elin is handling it as far as I know, I’ve had multiple conversations with her.
