I can only read "Tyranny-Cop" so many time before the first y starts becoming silent.

I'm in the minority here (I'm such a maverick/contrarian), but now that Wade's laid the hammer down, I'll explain my earlier reference: I was making fun of everyone. I thought a lot of Raven's comments were, well, ravings. She did not seem genuinely interested in discussion and instead appeared to prefer confronting and excluding people whom she deemed to not belong in our group. In other words, she wanted people excluded and/or ridiculed.

If she couldn't take the heat, then she could have left the kitchen of her own volition. But responding in kind with indignation was, at best, unbecoming. I would have preferred to make fun of her a few times while trying to keep it lighthearted. But I don't really have a bird in this fight.

Thumbs up.
Not that Wade needs my approval, but I have been very outspoken of late and would feel amiss if I didn't commend her and the DT posters for the delicate handling of Raven. ;
See you tomorrow night - put it in writing it happens - ;

It was her view on "respect" that I thought would lead down a very unpleasant path in the future for our group. ;
Ellery, I understand your point and you're one of those that is very good about explaining yourself and your positions online, and also at apologizing when you think you've been misinterpreted negatively. Not everyone has that capability and Raven certainly didn't seem to mind either causing controversy (not ALWAYS a bad thing IMO) or out-and-out hurting people's feelings (a definite bad thing IMO). ;
Wade, I'm happy with the decision you made and I know it wasn't easy or pleasant for you to make. But I truly think it was the best thing for the group. ;

Oh, I was so busy working on my carefully worded answer that I didn't see your message come in. THANKS, Wade!

Hello again!

I'm sure by now Raven DOES think I am a "tyranny-cop" because I just canceled her membership.  That's the first time I have ever had to do that, but, as they say, there's a first time for everything.  I was a little curious how he or she thought that wanting respect made one a "tyranny-cop", but not curious enough to continue the conversation. ;

And now back to your regularly scheduled program...
