I don't think that anyone was not wanting you to share your kilt with the group but I think that the good natured bantering went way to the wayside many posts ago. I know that if this is considered friendly bantering, I would not want to see how enemies are treated. While you have been a good friend and great leader, I truly have to say that I was offended by the direct attacks on not just one member but several. There was no "friendly" in there that I could see. The attempts at humor were caustic and condescending. I was also offended by references to women here. If you are not a lady, then you are a slut. That is a way big stretch and offensive to the women who choose to be "women" rather than ladies. I have met many so called ladies that I would rather skip knowing. Ladies always implies to me of women that need to be taken care of. Myself, I would rather throw myself in the game of life and survive however I have to. I do agree with JD that you would not have tolerated ANYONE else behaving like this even if they felt they were doing it in fun. I hate to bring it up but this is exactly what got us into our previous issue. And as far as the "ladies" in your life, would they be proud of this type of comments being directed at other females, even in jest....I would believe not. I have been put in charge until you return and I take that responsibilty seriously and it is my duty to look out for our members until such time that you return or they ask me to step down. I myself, feel that there are more apologies deserved along with JD's and will leave that up to you. I am asking that this topic be ended on our public forum and the use of PM's be used for those apologies or other communications. We will talk about this at the next meeting so that we can resolve any feelings or other fallout from this visit to unacceptable interaction. Once again, I ask all members to save their comments for the next meeting or PM me your concerns. I will be in and out this evening and out of phone contact but will keep touching bases with the boards as I can.
