By a majority vote of the moderating staff, we have issued seven-day suspensions for an unprecedented and large number of members, in response to interpersonal conflicts that escalated to the point of having violated section III of the LPSG Terms of Service. We recognize that not all of the affected members were involved to an equal extent. We discussed -- passionately and at length -- the idea of meting out differing sanctions for different levels of involvement. We concluded that it would be impossible to make a fair determination, and even more impossible to make a determination that was accepted as fair by all parties involved. In the end, we agreed to make all the suspensions of equal length, taking no sides in the matter. This was a difficult decision for us; and one in which we were not unanimous. All of the suspensions will end at 7:00 pm Eastern time on February 29. Mindseye, for the moderating team.
