Tory banned herself. Although if she had stayed after the incident in SF, all her posts would be trolled utterly, so it would have been unproductive if she stayed.
I did not witness Smurf being banned, and I personally would not have done so. So I don't have all the background info. But the current mods are definitely more twitchy than in the past. I think most people on WWP would agree that the worst Smurf should have gotten was a temp ban, if anything
I've received multiple emails & pms on here & my Facebook from supportive anons who said that WWP has become a diminished shell from what it used to be, and could be, due to the whims of the admin, Sue, who has banned anons & mods for no reason other than he did not like them.
Barbiluv & Zizany posted harmless gibberish on the Drama thread, often in comm with Miranda, so perhaps, it was guilt by association. I wish people would stop talking about my being banned, because I have no desire to ever post on WWP again, regardless what the climate there is.
It is what it is. My being banned hasn't stopped from me continuing to be productive for the "cause" and it certainly hasn't hurt Tory & others.
