just a voice like a riot rocking every revision

This message just came in from the Twisted hunt group. Apparently I missed something huge while I was off the keys.
Hello Twisties.

The Twisted Organization Team has always valued the community created by all the people in the Twisted Hunt Group. We consider you all friends and family, and encourage folks to interact - everything from playful banter to rigorous debate. Our community is based on mutual respect for others, friendship, and general awesomeness that is each and every one of you. We tease each other, we help each other, and we share things and places of interest with each other.

Twisted Hunt group only has one big rule when it comes to what you can say: Don't be a Douche. Just don't. Nobody likes being on the receiving end of intolerance, hate, bigotry and prejudice; and, quite frankly, the Twisted Organization Team doesn't like to see it happening. We shouldn't have to police you, because you are all adults. True, some people adult better than others, but we trust you to have some judgment about what is and isn't okay.

However, a few recent events within group chat have left a number of people feeling upset and offended. Without placing blame or outing anyone for their illicit behavior towards others, it's time to let you all know that we do not tolerate bigotry or intolerance for any Twisted member's race, religion, creed, gender, sexuality, or anything else. If you disagree with someone, that is fine, but it is not okay to disrespect another by openly attacking the person in group chat. It is not okay to belittle someone and attack them, period. If you don't agree with what the person is saying, Second Life has provided a means to block people you don't want to see/hear.

In addition, if you feel you can't deal with things being said (and this goes for either party), there is a little X in the upper right corner of your chat window. Or you can hit the ZZ symbol next to that X to snooze chat for a time, likelihood is when it pops back open the conversation will have changed. Either way, the chat will be silenced.

************* BUT **************

Consider this your warning. It may seem ironic, but we cannot tolerate intolerance. Period. Full Stop. We have no qualms punting people from the group if need be, and no one is above this rule!


Be excellent to each other. Any douche baggery hate speech will earn you an instaban.

- Twisted Team

Think that's pretty self-explanatory. Don't know what happened, but in case you are in the group, and didn't see this, there you go.
