Helen Banned

Post by WalmRtJunkie » Sun Feb 09, 2003 3:00 am

Can some one please tell me why Helen C. Watters was banned? It's not that I disagree with the decision or anything... I just want to be kept up to date. Thanks!

From the posts of her's that I've read... I fully support the admins' decision. I don't know if banning her was necessary though. Please tell me more. I want to know!!!

Simple reason. She's been here a long time, disobeyed many rules, is self absorbed and thinks she rules teenhelp still. Her actions have been less than favorable but we decided to give her many chances, i can think of at least 20 chances right now. But enough is enough. All 6 admins voted UNANIMOUSLY (sp) that enough is enough and that she's had too many chances. Therefore she has been banned. End Of Story.

I was in the meeting it was a fair vote with a lot of supporting evidence


Indeed...I posted entire chat logs showing her disregard for the site staff. :)

I kinda liked Helen. She was honest and told people what's what.



I'm also Helen-inclined because she made that post about God. You know, with the burning shrubs and fake burning cabbages? You know what I'm talking about right?



Oh I'll miss her :'(

Personally, I'm glad she was banned. She was always mean to people. She always bitched at people for no reason.

ANYWAY, that's my 2 cents.

Your eyes they penetrate me,

She gave people honest opinions that weren't just like everyone else's, told people what she thought, and didn't sugar coat it. She contributed a lot to the site and was one of the people I look up to because she didn't worry about standing up to people and telling them what she thought. She's one of the few here that really did that a lot. She helped me personally a lot whether she knew it or not.



And let it be known that I'm not challenging the admins with this post, and I'm not holding any long-term grudges or such.
"There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven: a time to be born and a time to die, time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain, a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away, a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak, a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace."

I wont rush to defend myself as you know what, you are PARTIALLY correct... i have broken some of my own rules but theres one thing that's different.. I realize it and i have punished myself as i would with any other.



I am 20, barely out of a teen, but also if you take the time to look at our staff applications, you will note you are able to be a mentor from ages 14-24.



I stay as openminded and as objectional as i can and I rely on the people to tell me if im right or not... now people in general can say it but are weighted less than my fellow admins if they told me.



I have a very hectic life (school, my own business, the ISP i work for part time, my gf, teenhelp, and MANY more), but i INCLUDE teenhelp in my life because frankly, I LOVE IT HERE.



She had a higher post count cause she spends a shitload of time on the SG's... frankly I hate the SG's but i realize they are a large part of teenhelp, so i stay objectional and keep them. The reason why i hate them is there is TOO much to look over, TOO much to moderate, and TOO much back end admin stuff to upkeep the Support Groups.... hence why we have 4 SG admins and 2 Chat admins.



if you obey the rules, that's fine, i have no problem. If you think you run this site and can do what you want, you are gravely mistaken. I CANT EVEN DO WHAT I WANT. I follow the same set of rules you all do, but i follow them with dignity.



I never said that being here a long time constitutes banning... I merely say that with absolute power, corruption comes easily, which is why ALL 6 ADMINS aggreed upon a set of rules to keep us from corruption. So far they are doing well, and so am i.



There is no double team when it comes to admins, we are a group of 6. we make MAJOR decisions together and must pass unanimously to go through.



Not only did i see this, i took a break from my work (eating up my last 15 min break) to respond to it.



Some love me and the way I do things, some hate me because of the way i do things.. I do things that GENERALLY are loved by most people. dont forget, YOU CANT MAKE EVERYONE HAPPY AT THE SAME TIME.

:unsure: Keeps his mouth shut...



Ok so I can't really keep my mouth shut. Helen could be offensive sometimes, but that's because she didn't say what people wanted to hear, only what she believed, and I think that she did contribute a lot to these support groups. If nothing else, I enjoyed the dicussions she could provoke.

It was tine to go

Through the fields lay golden

Something wispered- "SNOW"

Leaves were green and stirring

Berries,luster-glossed

But beneath the warm feathers

Something cautioned- "FROST"

Steamed With amber spice

But each wild breast stiffened

At rembered ice

Something told the wild geese

It was time to fly-

Summer sun was on their wings

Winter in their cry

Helen had many chances to start acting right, and she wouldn't. We LET her on here many times after we said "no more" but we gave in. this time Helen went TOO far. She started back mouthing the admins, and threatening teenhelp. it was enough for the 6 people that run the site, take care of it, and keep it going, to say enough, which me personally I fight aginst the group alot, so me to vote for someone to be banned is quite unnormal. Helen is banned and she isn't comming back... sorry to all that want her back.
