I agree totally with Cynric and Mordraut, however, the only reason I sent
this is to finally correct the spelling in the )*(&^&%#$& subject line!

>>>That's nice, I'm glad you are not a scum sucking reactionary worm, but i am
>>>concerned with an event annoucement, a public statement by a group I am
>>>involved with, which certainly seems to indicate a mindset antithetical to
>>>my own.
>>What the hell, I haven't been flamed in a while, so I might as well put
>>myself in that posistion.
>>Litch, it seems to me that you first post on the subject, was one posted by
>>a *scum sucking reactionary worm*  You saw something that you didn't like,
>>and posted against it, but instead of using basic logic, you pushed *hot*
>>buttons:  religion, sexual preference, etc..
>>Are you involved with the group, the statement was made by the Steppes, not
>>the SCA.  The Steppes are not the officail voice on the SCA *family* policy.
>>Also, are you really involved with the SCA?  I doubt that 1/3 rd of the
>>local active group would recognize you at a gathering, or even know your SCA
>>name.  It seems to me, that all you do is complain about the SCA, but do not
>>do anything constructive to try and change it.
>>>The annocement I read certainly seemed to indicate that they were going to
>>>give a benefit to people who fit thier paradigm of a family and I find that
>>>to be overly restrictive and supportive of a mentality I despise. If they
>>>didn't mean to sound like a bunch of dittohead clowns then they should have
>>>used different words.
>>They have the right to offer discounts to what they decide is a family, just
>>as some groups allow the local Baron/Baroness in free, while some do not.
>>It is up to them, they could have just as easily NOT offered any discount,
>>it is there choice, if you don't like it, don't go.
