looks like a case of mistaken identity - mistaking persona for the person... 
mix of persona play and "regular interaction"...

it's one of the reasons why I'm not fond of persona play...
people misunderstand stuff when they're right there "in person"...
it's 100X worse when it's on the net...

Maybe the list needs some kind of "convention"
like when people are posting things that are "persona play"
like the initial Goliard stuff and much of the interaction with the original posts...

Maybe put PP in the subject line or... 
"Persona" or something identifying it as persona related
so that there is less misunderstanding...
and less chance of people hijacking the thread 
to use for their own drama

Pssst Michael... they choose to hang out with people in the SCA... OMG. 
Roflmao you people need to chil the SCA is a  game. Nothing more.. we do it 
for our own entertainment.. and for a few to fill their empty lives with 
percieved power. We sing together... feast together... fight together.. So 
if we all had the same ideas and likes etc... the SCa would be boring beyond 
belief. There has been many problems and if they are not pointed out then 
they are ignored and allowed to fester. I associate with EVERYONE in the 
SCA, from Crown, to Brass Hats, to the newbies. I feel everyone in the SCA 
is one big family. Ya dont like someone well dont go around them, but dont 
hold it against someone else for getting to know them. Some of us like to 
defend the underdogs and want everyone to have fun. So instead of judging 
people with who they hang with try going out and I dont know... try getting 
to know a few people other than the circle of friends you hang with.
