Anyone seen Maggie?
I haven't chatted with Maggie (QuarterPony) in a few days, which is unusual, usually we talk a lot .. I just want to see if she's okay - if anyone's heard from her??
i was wondering the same thing!
I haven't chatted with her (I don't chat), but here is a post from her yesterday on another thread
So, I guess she must still be at home... in bed... being bored... Hope all is well with her.
I talked with her, I think yesterday.
omg jdi stop stalking maggie lol jk
A member pm'd the moderator team with evidence that all of the horses QuarterPony had been posting about, posting pictures of, etc., were not her own.
For instance, this picture, one of many QuarterPony posted of "Nory"
Is the very same picture of "Corcia", featured here Prairie Thunder Gypsys - Corcia - Mare
The above is only one example.
Because maintaining the integrity of the forum for our members is a priority, we asked QuarterPony about it. We'd hoped there would be a simple explanation. Rather than offer one, though, she wrote back saying she hadn't taken any of the pictures of her horses herself but that they were sent to her by a "friend", asked that her threads discussing her horses be removed, and said she had been thinking about leaving the Horse Forum anyway.
After much deliberation among the moderator team, we obliged and banned her for what amounted to a prolonged, extravagant campaign of lies and deceipt to members of this community.
This is something nobody likes to do, and we seriously considered giving her a stern warning and asking her to apologize to the community, but decided her egregious conduct warranted a ban for the following reasons:
You don't have to own horses to participate at the Horse Forum. Because we care about our members and this community, though, you can't lie extravagantly to everyone about everything.
I'm sure people will have different ideas about how this should have been handled, but I hope you can appreciate that the moderators and I thought it through and did our very best to do right by everyone.
I'll miss Maggie.
Oh wow... appearantly I miss a lot. Ha... well I'll miss her, she was really nice..
Thank you for taking the time to type that out Mike.
:shock: Oh my.
Thank you for the kind explaination, Big Cheese of the Forum.
* sighs* You just never know with some folks. A couple years ago a troll stole my name after being banned from another forum..... and to add insult to injury I was the third choice! :evil: She was caught using a couple other folks first. It was Solon who tipped me off. LOL, if you ever saw a post by me but with these dang things ~~~~~~~~ it wasn't me!
