'User log for Cautions, Suspension, Bans etc' is kept here
In fact, surprising few individuals have ever had to be banned, and those were not without very good reason. Even in the cases of temporary measures such as suspensions (in order to protect the forum allow individuals to cool off), such actions do not happen without considerable attempts to mediate a resolution beforehand.
The decision to split the forum, and the successful encouragement of three other forums for BKs, BK and PBKs and ex-BKs, was made mainly due to a lack of resources and, secondly, to encourage more mutually acceptable environments for each group. We welcome this fourth new and independent discussion BK forum.
Brahmakumaris.info was never intended as a free social forum for all parties or a small clique. From its very inception, it was intended as a serious discussion in order to work to document the Brahma Kumari movement, honestly and in its entirely, and support those negatively affected by it. Not every individual member understood, accepted this, nor were willing to aspire to the standards we aimed for.
Unfortunately, a few seemed to consider that it was their birthright to take, do as they please, and yet give nothing in return to support it; caring little for what effect their actions had on the whole nor appreciating the full human costs of maintain such a site. Individuals that quite honestly know very little about how the site runs, who we are or what we do.
As administrators of such as site, we are privvy to much more information than often we can publish, even when such information would explain actions that have been taken in the past, as to do so would be to contravene the general confidentiality that we afford our members. This can make it difficult for us to defend ourselves at times.
Bansy has never been banned from Brahmakumaris.info, nor even her behavior criticized. When this forum was started, she was automatically afforded moderator status and, as an independent BK supporter, she was encouraged to breath life into.
Please see the detailed account of her own decision to leave, here.
We are deeply sorry that having refused to respond to admin correspondence, reactivate her account and accept the new Code of Ethics at Brahmakumaris.info, for her own reasons, that Bansy now feels a need to join others in demeaning the site by spread false and prejudicial information. With her good relationship with the BKWSU, access to Murlis and so on, we always felt she could share much more with others, as we wished to, and regret that she did not during her time with us.
Due to other pressures, it is unlikely that we will be able to follow this discussion.
