no more GC says nationals?

Hey y'all --

I saw KappaKittyKat's signature, and it said something about you girls' nationals making a rule on Nov. 8 that you couldn't post on GC anymore.

What's the deal with that?

Unhappy

(If I knew how to make those big crying faces, I would)

Please come back!!!!! I haven't seen any questionable/derogatory behaviors from any Kappas on this board. If the Kappa Council is reading this, PLEASE LET THEM COME BACK!!!! KappaKittyCat has helped me with ideas on rebuilding my chapter, and I want more of her help!!!!

We love you guys!!!

Could you possibly post a copy of it on this thread, or send us a link.....

This is herr sig...

8 November, 2002.
Kappa Kappa Gamma's Fraternity Council has placed a moratorium on its members' posting on GreekChat.com and any other such online forums until further notice. This is due to the public nature of the forums and the fact that they are unauthorized and unmoderated by Kappa.
I'm still reading here on GC, but I cannot post until I hear otherwise. I'll miss you all. Please email me with questions.
Love, KappaKittyCat

That's hard to believe. You think they'd trust you to represent your organization. I wonder why this came about?

When I first saw this thread, I became concerned, mainly because there is a large population of AGDs on this board and every day we contribute to threads in the General Forums and in our own forum. I've been on GreekChat since December 2000 and there have been a few threads/posts that could've sparked the attention of their council, but nothing really stands out in my mind.

I know for a fact that members of the AGD International Council and Volunteer Service Team monitor these boards as I have been asked to edit and exercise caution on certain threads in the AGD Forum. I have great faith in my sisters that they represent Alpha Gamma Delta to the best of their ability, and they've been doing that well!

I too am curious as to what exactly brought about this moratorium...and if other GLOs will find themselves in a similar situation with their respective governing bodies.

If anyone can shed light on this situation, inquiring minds want to know!

I don't get it... It's not like the Kappas here are posting their ritual for all the world to see - and nothing is stopping members of their national council from reading the boards and asking people to edit/delete posts if necessary (as OTW says AGD's council does).

I do hope this isn't true... GC wouldn't be the same without you

I agree with OTW -- if you trust your girls to represent your org. well, then trust your girls to represent your org. well.

As 33girl PMed me, "when I think of groups whose nationals need to shut them up, the Kappas do not spring to mind."

Thumbs down

My bet is the following. Most of our intl/natl board of directors are a bit older, and not so in touch with technology. I would be willijng to bet most of my orgs. BOD think Instant Messenger is some type of instant coffee.

They prolly just started hearing about GC and such, and as a natural rection, reacted by closing shop, so to speak. Thay need to be informed of the positive things GC is and maybe spend a minute or 2 here and figure out whats up before they speak and pass moratoriums.

As for my org trying soemthing like that...
I too would consider disaffiliating

I highly prize my free speech.

I am a fraternity alum, I have done my time and paid lots of cashola. I get to say what I want, as long as I do it as a gentleman

If confirmed, BOO HISS to KKG Council for being reactionary, archaic and afraid of new technology. I know many KKG. Censorship is not an ideal of what I would expect from you fine ladies.

I am obviously dissapointed . I hold KKG in higher regards than this.

Okay, so here's me being a nerd, but what if some of us contacted Kappa nationals about this? Do you think it'd make a difference if they were getting letters from Jane of ABC and John of XYZ about how well Kappa represents themselves and what an addition they are to the board?

Are they able to do this? What will happen if you do post on GC do they take your letters away? I hope this is not going to effect other GLO.

From what I heard, it was a traveling consultant who informed KKC of their headquarters' intent to restrict members from posting. Apparently they've been following GC, because the TC was able to figure out who KKC was. "Hey, do you post on GreekChat? Are you KappaKittyCat?"

I posted my thoughts here:
