    I just wanted to say that I'm very sorry, and let me tell you why.
    A couple of months ago there was an incident where a member was "called out". I never saw proof and thought that the powers that be made a rash and hurtful decision. Since then, I've been a lurker and not much of a poster because I didn't want to "enable" or show "support" for the decision that was made.
    It has now come to light that I was wrong, and scammed for that matter.
    So, to those of you who know what I'm talking about, I hope you accept my apology. And those of you who don't, please don't ask questions because I'm now closing my mouth.
    Mods-Close the thread if you want, but please please don't delete it.

    Yeah, I've noticed and missed your frequent posts.

    Apology accepted (I know exactly to what you are referring).

    For everyone that knows what we're talking about, PLEASE let this be a testament to the combined experience (at least 25 years) of the BYC staff in moderating this community. When we lock posts, ban members, or make (what on the outside) looks like harsh or quick to judge decisions it is only to protect the community we love.

    Carri, thanks for the post.

    Nice to see you back Carrie.
    Remember, those with the biggest hearts risk being hurt the most. I am sorry you were hurt. :aww

    There were a few folks sitting on the fence concerning this. What seemed a
    little rash at first were just the mods following the rules. It's also very normal for
    forums like this to develop offshoots like the forum you are refering too (Trying
    to be vague). If the recent developments are true then there are going to be
    a lot of goodhearted people here feeling duped. I just pray they don't become
    jaded because of it.
