The Cyber Community -- the people whose faces I never see and who, like myself, sit and read the words posted to our screens, I see us as pioneers.
Yes, like in the old western towns -- WE are cyber frontier pioneers.
I have participated in chatrooms over the years and over time I have
observed how each room develops it's protocol and how the individuals who
participate consistently over time, establish what is referred to as 'regs'
status while the community grows and evolves.
WE have the choice what
behaviors WE will tolerate in OUR cyber community -- our towns -- our chat rooms.
The votes are in:
On the issue of whether the plaintiff has established probable cause:
There were 33 voters
AGREED Guilty of all charges = 02/30
AGREED Guilty of being clones = 03/30
Did not vote= 01/33
Has not opened email= 01/33
The plaintiff has sent the information to the ISP administration.
Regardless, of the outcome, the plaintiff has set a precedent by deciding to not be a victim, but rather to take action -- to take a stand!
The ISP community is a vast and awesome Netosphere. There is room for ALL, even for those who prefer to live in 'Bully Town.'
The plaintiff is now free to continue with her work in trying to make a difference -- to share -- to learn -- to grow.
Thank you for your kind and gracious attention.
I am done!
False opinions are like false money, struck first of all by guilty men and thereafter circulated by honest people who perpetuate the crime without knowing what they are doing. - Joseph Marie de Maistre
