Your friendly mods come to leave a not-so-friendly post. Something happened to one of your mods, something that is not nice and not at all appropriate. Livejournal was about to cancel a user for absolutely no reason at all, other than someone else's false accusations.
You know taking something and claiming it's yours is one of the worst things you can do, but taking something, claiming it's yours and then blaiming the original owner for taking it is just SICK AND VERY WRONG. We do not want that kind of enviroment in this community.
I would like to stress these following points:
a) We have been nice mods, haven't we? We have listened to you, we have tolerated incredible lack of participation and it has been fixed to a point, we update, we have things nicely, and we have all played nice, members have been incredible. Members and mods have completely gotten along this past year.
b) When we felt the need to do a membership cut, we did, and people that have not agreed to it or seen themselves cut as a mistake have PMd me and we have arranged what happened. When we see someone we should ban, we ban, and we keep it in a very secretive way. Only alerting through us and some mods of other comms why the person was banned. If you deserved to be banned, deal with the consequense of what you did. If you feel unfairness, PM us and we'll fix it.
c) We have worked very hard on keeping this community peaceful. We hate to have someone trying to wreck it for no reason.
This said, we want our members and ourselves to be SAFE around here. With what happened, no, we are not exactly safe, so to put it.
This is the announcement: Until we completly figure this out and are assured that we are fine again: MEMBERSHIP IN BREATHE ME IS CLOSED AT THE MOMENT.
This post will remain public through that time.
