Sorry, Some Posts are Going to Get Deleted

kandacekandace Raw Newbie

As many of you have noticed, we’ve had a barrage of salacious, sexual and threatening posts lately. This just won’t do!

To tackle this, I am going to be deleting some posts for the next little bit while we wrestle this forum back into shape. Hopefully, this won’t go on for long as we like to keep Gone Raw as open as possible.

In the meantime, I’ll apologize in advance if something gets deleted that you feel shouldn’t be – we’re dredging through hundreds of posts a day, many by the same individuals, and we may make some mistakes along the way.

If you are a regular member here, please don’t take it personally – we’re doing our best here. And, if a post or image is deleted, please write me personally if you have any questions at all.

Thanks for your understanding!

    thanks for your work on this site Kandace, it is much appreciated!!

  • Thank you for your diligence on this. People don’t understand how difficult it is to maintain an open forum. The only other way would be to have every post go to the moderator for approval before it hits the board. With as HUGE as this site is, that would get insane.

  • Thanks Kandace. Please do whatever you have to do. I miss how things used to be.

  • Thanks, I appreciate your efforts.

    Thank you Kandace – all your hard work is truly appreciated.

  • Thank you Kandace and Ray, and especially for such a wonderful site for such a wonderful community to get together.

  • Thank you, Kandace. I appreciate all you are doing and know it’s not a fun task.

  • We all need to hold our highest vision of GoneRaw instead of dwelling on the recent disturbing issues. With all of our positive energy and visualization, plus Kandace and Ray’s hard work, our beloved community forum will be restored for our shared benefit.

    Blessings and gratitude to Kandace, Ray and anyone else who may be working behind the scenes to create this synergistic treasure!

  • Many thanks.

    Thank you Kandace and Ray. I very much appreciate this site and your efforts to keep things on an even keel.

  • Thank you for your diligence and time. Considering that I’ve noticed there are upwards of 10 – 14 accounts that are posting and fueling the junk flying around, you certainly have your work cut out for you.

    I also appreciate the fact that other GR members are NOT allowing themselves to be instigated further by this.

    Thank you again and may your time spent on this be recovered. : ) Peace, health and blessings.

    Me too, me too! I love goneraw (& Kandace & Ray) too! :)

  • Jenoz: Beautiful statement. Popping in to add my feel good love energy to the mix. I love this place and that is all!

  • Thank you.I haven’t really gotten comfortable posting here yet but I have been lurking for ages and it was really bugging me, watching what was going on.  Gone Raw is the best Raw site on the ‘net – let’s keep it that way!

  • I’m very new to raw and if it weren’t for all the lovely people who give so freely of their time and energy here I probably wouldn’t be sticking to the raw lifestyle to the degree that I am. I went overnight from SAD to about 70/80% raw and have used this site on a daily basis to stay that way. So thank you to everyone for making my transition so positive…I write this as I’m munching my way through a recipe from this site (long live Zoe, Chris and their sunflower seed cheese:)

  • Thanks y’all. We seriously appreciate your kind words. It’s really unfortunate when someone comes along to spoil the party for all of us. We’re working on it!

  • Branwyn32Branwyn32 Raw Newbie

  • agreed. i cannot fathom the work it takes to upkeep a site like this. i hope it is a labor of love! s

  • drgonflydrgonfly Raw Newbie

    Thank you so much Ray & Kandace! I don’t know where I’d be in my raw lifestyle if it wasn’t for this site. Your hard work & care for this raw community it so appreciated!

    Wind to your wings!

  • I cannot imagine the work that you are putting into this, thank you for all your work, this is the best site on the web.

  • Thanks, things have been pretty scary (and quite disturbing) lately.

  • rawmamarawmama Raw Newbie

    Thank you for all of your hard work, long hours, and brainstorming in keeping this a site where people can learn and share without the harassment. You have handled it so professionally while keeping your cool thru it all… Goneraw is fantastic!
