So why am I finding out that certain persons have been treating it as one?
Let me be very clear: I have absolutely no problem with polite, welcomed flirting or personal affairs. That's your business.
What I have a problem with is the fact that I have had countless female users of LttD complain to me that assorted males (and sometimes females!) have made unacceptable, unwanted advances, especially via the PM system.5. Do not make sexual advances unless you are given the mating signal.
Read that. Now read it again. Now again. Let that sink into your thick skull. Because if you don't, I am going to hammer it into your skull. I will not tolerate
any users abusing the PM system of LttD to make unwelcomed advances on our users.
Do not make unacceptably lewd comments unless you are specifically invited to
by that person. Do not attempt to coerce our users into talking dirty to you. Do not make bizarre proposals out of nowhere that no reasonable person would find acceptable. Do not continue PMing people after you've been asked to stop.
If I find out you are doing this, I will ban you, on the spot. Satanists are certainly welcome to engage in whatever "extracurricular activies" are enjoyable for everyone involved, however they are not welcome to harass women (or men, for that matter) or act like neanderthal perverts. And don't think I won't find out. I will.
To those who have had to put up with this nonsense:
I apologize that your experience here has been marred by this. I strongly encourage anyone who is receiving unwanted PMs or advances from LttD users to contact me via PM with your problems. Ideally, please forward offending PMs to me and explain the duration and nature of the issue in full. You need not fear that I will find you silly for doing so, and trust that I will hold your privacy in strict confidence. It is my goal to make your experience here both safe and pleasant, and I will not permit the minority of users to spoil that experience.
We are watching.
