Scott00 from PS needs a new home :)
Quote this post and reply to it Post#1 @ 04-18-07 , 11:54 PM


Hello all,

Well after getting arbitrarily banned from PS, I need a new community to join where I can share about my obsession without the fear of heavy handed censorship.

A little about myself... I am a biomedical sciences graduate student who has loved to read about gemology since I was a little kid. Now that I am "employed" I can buy a few things that I only read about in the past! I am excited to be able to contribute and learn from you all.

Best,
Scott

After several years of helpful posts and sharing of knowledge, I posted an external link (at the request of the OriginalPoster of a thread) to a photo album featuring a ring of mine that contains a fancy vivid orangy-yellow Adia diamond, and apparently that angered the powers that be.

It is rather ironic that when the admin posts pictures of jewelery that features Cubic zirconia, that it is allowed and encouraged, but when a community member posts a picture of a fancy yellow lab-created diamond to demonstrate the particular color as graded by EGL-USA, unilateral and arbitrary banning occurs.

PS seems to be a nice place on the surface, but as I have found out, heavy censorship and hypocrisy abound and it has left a bad taste in my mouth.

Bienvenido! Scott,
Good to see you around here. For those that don't know, Scott has some awesome rings that I would give my neighbor's right arm for. If you get a chance please post them.

Thank you EVERYONE for such a warm welcome, I very much appreciate it! Hopefully next week, I'll have some spare time to upload pictures to share

One question from the get go, would it be ok to post my ring with the Adia Lab-created diamond or would it be better off on the Simstalk forum? If anyone can help me with that question I'll make sure not to step on any toes

Well I think you should post it, but I have no voting privledges LOL It isn't a "sim" its just.... hey they were talking about lab created diamonds made from dead relatives and baby hair so I don't see why your diamond couldn't be shared??? Look over on the diamond forum....

Banned from PS???
Quote this post and reply to it Post#17 @ 06-04-07 , 09:00 PM


I've been banned from there several times. Anyone who uses the word "retromingent" will be immediately suspected of being the poor, poor, and much maligned Rodentman and will be summarily banned.

It's a huge BFD.

Hi Scott,

I'll join the crowd, I just got banned last week! After 5 years! I posted info about pearls, just being nice and helping out a fellow PS'er who asked the question in the first place. What's the deal with pearls? Heavy handed indeed.
