Yesterday I wrote the owner of the site and heard back from him today. He was cordial and expressed regret that my trouble ticket was treated as it was. He also expressed that the reason my daughter was banned was not what I stated but he didn't know what exactly the reason was and would be investigating the matter further. I did write him back to give him more information.

Parker decided to call him to discuss the situation after I spent a couple of hours figuring out that we were all perm banned because of "problem ticket abuse", in other words anyone who uses our ISP was deemed by one 19 year old girl called "FoxGrin" to be my daughter aka bunnylover. She wasn't answering the tickets she was making notes on the tickets to say, "this is bunnylover." My daughter is only responsible for two trouble tickets and she isn't even the first person who submitted a ticket, not even the first person in our home who did so. My son is actually the first one who submitted a ticket. I read his, it was very well written IMNSHO. He ended a ticket by stating, "that's ignorant and retarded" in reference to the fact that the ban was put in place while the kids were in school. Apparently they were checking IP logs and saw that our IP had logged on earlier that day, it was my 18 year old daughter but naturally it had to be bunnylover. In this case I think my son's statement is true, at least half true anyway, it is ignorant.

FoxGrin made a reference to that in her response to one of the tickets my daughter actually did write and it seems that FoxGrin has limited reading comprehension because she claimed it was bunnylover insulting the admins rather than what was written.

The owner told Parker that the original ban was because bunnylover had a disagreement with an admin but he still doesn't know what it was about and the admin in question (not FoxGrin) denies the jealousy story. Well duh, why would she admit to abusing her power? He did seem to agree about the trouble ticket issue though and lifted the perm ban that was put in place because FoxGrin assumed everyone was bunnylover.

So, the problem is resolved but my opinion about the immaturity of the staff hasn't changed. It's sadly been reaffirmed.

Yesterday I signed up for an account on wolfhome.com and promptly found myself banned within seconds of confirming my account. I opened a trouble ticket to inquire about the problem and just received a response. It's one word, "Bunnylover." WTF??? How does that even remotely answer the question? Now don't get me wrong, I know who bunnylover is, my 15 year old daughter. Still, that does not address my question. In fact, it's a bit on the immature side in my opinion. I have four computers in this house and five people have accounts on that site. We aren't all my daughter. A quick trip to google would clear up any question about me being a 15 year old girl as well I would think. I mean I have been around for a while.

I did ask my daughter about the situation. What she told me is that it has to do with one of the volunteer admins being jealous over some guy asking my daughter to be his mate even though my daughter turned him down. Apparently the girl banned my daughter to eliminate the competition. Some kind of desperate attempt to win this guy over even though he's already told her he isn't interested. Pathetic and immature teen bullshit.

Now I've found out that nearly our whole town has been perm banned. They all probably wrote trouble tickets asking about the IP ban since I've been told that almost everyone in this town that is with my ISP has the same IP addy, like one big LAN.

I remember when wolfhome was first starting out. I was busy back then with the PWA but I seem to recall that I had joined all those years ago probably as Wolfrose but never did anything with it. It wasn't so interactive back then either. The new chat they have now is rather cool. It's a shame it can't be run by more mature people with some professional ethics.

I'm involved with a group of pagans in Salt Lake City with an email list called UTAlternativeSpiritualitySubstituteSubstitute or UASS for short. Ever two weeks (or week or three weeks depending on everyone's mood) they get together and have coffee. They call it stealth coffee as a joke because another group had a bi-weekly coffee going and announced they were making it a secret so that some members of UASS couldn't show up. Yeah, whatever... that's the explanation though.

So, last night was Stealth Coffee night at The Greenhouse Effect (coffee and crepes mmmmm). Parker and I decided to attend in stealth style and didn't tell anyone we were going to drive down and be there. The looks on their faces when they saw us were priceless! It was wonderful to reconnect with my friends. I don't get to see them often enough and miss them terribly in between visits. I LOVE YOU GUYS! Last night was a blast.

Also, looks like I'm going to Heartland this year. *grin*
