Ok I am going to reply publicly as well...
Not yelling that was importance....
I am a parent of a 7 year old and he will be reading this....
Please tell me what idiots I personally should email and tell them to 
fuck off for protesting/harassing this poor girl and her family. 

I go to an event that is not as much acreage as Pennsic but has 5 times 
the people at it...  this article could very well be about that...  
(Don't trust Klingon Ale)  As an adult we cannot give advice to kids 
about Adult situations better than another Kid Could.  The Royals that 
are threatening these folks should be banned... If the adults in her 
area can't face the truth.... screw them!!!!!!!!!  Our Mundane Society 
is full of scary people... what kind of blinders are you wearing that 
you think some of those scary people haven't picked up our hobby? 

You keep that file in for another reason as well.... the SCA has turned 
over to the police child molesters, rapists, and even the sad dumbs 
asses that happened to be in the wrong place at the worst time... it is 
about time we hear from the victims so that they can give advice to 
future generations....

Any adult that is Bitching about THAT article because it portrays the 
SCA in a negative manner... should check the Banned List...
Corporate or BOD should be all over this in a positive manner!!!!!!

I am sorry for being so vehement but damn when a kid gets punished for 
speaking the TRUTH!!!!  It PISSES ME OFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That was yelling.... ;P  lol

Next thing ya know someone will be spreading the rumor that we are a 
group of guys that like to beat each other with sticks...
Oh Wait....
