Well, it seems I got banned from an Australian pagan site for being two-faced, despite not breaking a single rule of the fora. I have been banned from Newcastle Pagan Forest by missdollparts, the owner and organiser of the site. Shana, as she is also known, decided to join An Fianna. I did not invite her there, though I do put AF as my home page in profiles – she made her way there of her own accord.
Well, Shana registered as pagan-forest and was doing quite well, even posting an introduction within 24 hours, until she took some comments out of context and, instead of debating like a grown-up, she threw a hissy fit at being questioned about eclecticism and cultural robbery, and stated she was leaving the fora. I wrote a message of support, hoping to calm her down (at her own website) Newcastle Pagan Forest, and made a comment about the nature of paganism in Australia (generally speaking) at An Fianna in response to a comment made by a fellow member in Shana’s Intro thread. Shana took this as two-faced behaviour and banned me from her site, despite my not having broken a single rule of the fora at Newcastle Pagan Forest. Missdollparts (Shana) also hurled unwarranted insults:
“Will Lani or I do not want 2 faced people … your lack of charater [sic]”
Shame, really. You’d think that those that put themselves in positions whereby they organise other pagans would be above such pettiness? Love and light Shana / missdollparts / pagan-forest.
