abusive toward other members in the party, please know that an

appropriate action could be to kick the offending person from the party

or start another party to avoid additional conflict. If additional abuse

continues after the offending member is removed, please document

are an organization run by the members and for the members, and will

take all input from our membership to further positive movement and

growth of the organization. Utilizing our open door policy, as well as

together we can make our community thrive. However, ultimately, the

final say will go to the Owners.
