    Brother Da Street So'ja ... you are suspended for 2 weeks.

    Calling Members out of their name, making the discussions personal, and being disruptive, is not going to be tolerated from anyone.

    You speak of censorship when you have been allowed to say just about whatever you wanted...post whatever you wanted.



    There is nothing wrong with presenting your truths, but when you do it in a manner that disrespects and/or violates our rules....we can't allow that to happen here. This has always been our stand and most likely will always be. You may not agree with the way this site is ran or the decisions made here, but we do our best to create an environment where the majority of us can feel welcomed and safe to speak/share with each other.

    I'm so brokenhearted that it has come to this; As i do love you very much, as well as your intentions to change the condition of our people. But where ever you go there are going to be rules. Some you will agree with and some you won't. Each person will need room to decide what is best for their own personal and spiritual growth..... and some may find the need to move on to a place where they can get more of what they'll need, or more room to expand upon it.

    I do hope you feel my love in all this and understand the actions within.


    If you choose to return at the end of the 2 week period, you'll be expected to honor our rules, or be banned permanently.

    :heart:

    Sister PurpleMoons, the 2 Week Suspension thread states that "those Members who find it difficult to take heed to the Moderator's gentle warnings, will be banned for 2 weeks, in an effort to get their attention."
    Where are the warnings in this instance? Is giving a member warnings in each particular alleged incident no longer the procedure here? I would think that a long standing member such as Da Street So'ja, who has given so much to this community, would have been granted this courtesy.

    I'm starting to see what Destee.com is about. First brother Keita gets banned, then brother DSS gets banned. 2 brothers who want to fight against ignorance. They were banned, and yet you let the ignorance THRIVE. I don't see where DSS was warned and given a chance to apologize, like other members were afforded. So ultimately you want unified ignorance here at Destee.com or what? And there are different rules for different people?


    This says we are about teaching here, but it seems when you try to teach it's viewed as hate or attacks. This is sad to see. All the energy that brother Keita brought to this site was undermined by ignorance, amazing how that happens. But i again am starting to realize if ignorance is what is truly being promoted then that must be a reflection of the top or the foundation under which this site was manifested.

    This site has just lost has lost its' soul, now the downward spiral begins. The downward spiral back to where we once were, stuck in ignorance. Have you truly lost our will? Well i'm finalizing realizing if we do get our will back, it would not be because of Destee.com that's for sure. This is apparent that this is NOT a site for Black People to grow, but for Black People to stay status quo.

    i'm wondering what Malcolm would have to say about the state of affairs where Black People are afraid like we're still in the field or house on a plantation. It's sad to see a shell of website and what could have been. It's seems the ONLY purpose of this site is to keep the premium money coming in where other websites offer the same services for free. I became a member on a racist website, i had an avatar, i could post pictures, i could send emails, and even send PM's ALL FOR JUST BEING A MEMBER, but hereyou pay to play. hmmmmmmmm?

    500 years of oppression we've been dealt, so you know there's alot of work to do, but i'm realizing that work CANNOT be done here. Not with a cesspool of ignorance IMO. It's seems to start from the top and it works it's way down somehow. They do say whatever goes UP must come down and here you see it for yourself, kicking people while they're down.

    :terrific:

    watzinaname and sky763,

    As a Premium member of this site that has love for all that enter through its gates, after reading your responses, I felt compelled to respond in like manner. Here is the warning that all of us were under sister watzinaname, up to and including, myself, even:

    http://destee.com/forums/showthread.php?t=59119

    Its very title excludes no one, not a one, it says Warning Family, it then goes on to clearly point out statement of facts from no less than the Site Owner, Preserver, CEO, or whatever Destee is recognized as, as long as that implies, from the Top. This was posted 5/04/09 at 12:32 PM and currently has 369 views to its credit.

    And sky763, as long as a person follows the rules, and I for one am certainly glad those rules exist, just about anything is allowed, has been allowed over this Ten Year Period of the Site’s existence, and hopefully will continue to exist and allow just about anything, and here is the point you seem to gloss over, which is to say, within the Rules of Allowance, just about anything has been allowed, its as simple as that.

    Peace In watzinaname and sky763, for real.

    selling out?

    Your auditioning for a MODERATOR job on the back of this brother is shameless. You see any opportunity to kick him while he's down shows what you're REALLY about, for all to see.

    Brother Clyde Coger, while I appreciate you pointing out the thread detailing the warning given, including the time, date, and number of views, thank you very much, my questions remain given that Brother So'ja is such a long standing member and has given so much of himself to the community. Again, thank you though...

    watzinaname,

    And thank you sincerely watzinaname, I could feel in the words of PurpleMoons the hurt and pain that went into that decision on the basis that you have cited, and for that reason and contrary to popular belief, I would find it extremely difficult to be a Moderator...Besides, its only for 2 wks in hopes of a change in heart and Respect for the Rules of Sister Destee Peace In watzinaname, for real.

    While it breaks my heart to continue to see brothers go down by there own hand
    NO one , NO one is above the Rules set forth no matter how it may seem to those
    from the outside looking in , It what we will uphold at all cost and by all means

    Every situation is delt with differently like as in brother DSS case which is held at
    management standard the forgoing warning to the whole community was applyed
    whereas we didn't have to call out or single out a member this WARNING was placed
    for the community to see and know
    http://destee.com/forums/showthread.php?t=59119

    Therefore he has been warned and likewise the whole community !

    The continue disruption / breaking of the rules set forth / and trat left came to this point
    and again No one no matter how long is above what is set in stone
