Good morning everyone,
After yesterday we felt that we needed to address the issue that happened on Twitter. First of all let me tell you this, we have never nor will we ever tolerate disrespect, hate or any form of shade towards us, towards the cast, towards other people commenting on this site or on Facebook. This is not something new, this is something we have always done.
We are Canadian, we are American, we are Dutch, we are Czech we are Australian and we are British, if you attack one of us, you attack us all. No matter what happens in the world we will always stand up for those who can’t. This, yet again, is not something new. It’s something we have always done. Whether we do it through charity work with the site or whether it’s by tweeting information to people. If you were following us during the Paris attacks, the Nice attack, the Nepal earthquake, Hurricane Matthew and for those who have been following us through our other site, during the Haiti earthquake, the Japan Earthquake and other devastating events. This is who we are and what we stand for.
This is our site, we are entitled to do and say what we want. We created this site. We are not paid to post, we barely make any money, if any at all from this website. Most of the time it costs us more to run it and do giveaways than the small amount we do make. We post to keep you all updated and because we want to.
That being said, we have reached a zero tolerance policy after yesterday. We used to give people warnings. No more. If you tweet us hate, you will be blocked, if you post hateful messages on the website you will be IP banned, if you post hate on our Facebook you will be blocked. We won’t give you a warning like we previously did. We’ve had enough and since this is our website we are allowed to do so. The same applies if you reply to others with hateful messages or if you are hateful towards the actors.
We have been doing this for more than 8 years and this is the first time we’ve dealt with this level of disrespect and hate. I am disgusted at some of the tweets we received yesterday.
We are not Outlander STARZ, we have never pretended to be Outlander STARZ, it’s right there in our bio and yes Outlander STARZ knows about our website as they follow us on Twitter and we also have contacts there. All the opinions we state are ours and ours alone. We are a fansite, not the official STARZ website.
We will never stop fighting for what we believe in. We will never stop helping others no matter what. We will never be quiet.
If any of you are wondering who you were talking to last night, it was me, Marie (FPontheDL), the owner of this site and I’m Canadian.
Marie, B, Sim, Paige, Jan and Zoe
