To Randy Paynter and Care2 support,

Please reconsider your poor stance on silencing victims of abuse and stalkers on Care2 and those that advocate against such abuses.

Women around Care2 have fallen victim to online abusers and stalkers. Many of us have spoken out, only to be told we must be silent about such abuses.
Your reposnses always mention trolls, trolls are pests, We do agree, but abusers and stalkers are criminals.

You have made it clear that if any of us speak out, if we mention names of these abusers/stalkers in our groups
to warn other members, our posts will be censored, our groups will be at risk of being deleted and we will
be at risk of being suspended or banned from the site.
You say it is better to just ignore the abusers.

We understand that Tech support works hard on this issue, but member support has counter-acted with revictimization and censorship.

Letter:

We came to Care2 because it was a great social activist site.

We would like to remain for the same reason.

We respectfully ask you to reconsider your poor choice of actions on this matter.

Allow us our freedom of speech within our groups, blogs and such, so that we may prevent other's from falling prey to these perpetrators.
 
Silencing the victims, only protects the perpetrators,
allows them to continue abusing the women of Care2,
and re-victimizes the victims of these abuses.

Give us the right to protect ourselves and our community.

Exposing the abusers/stalkers is the only way to end abuse.

We also need to let everyone know that we as a whole community CARE
and will not tollerate abusers and stalkers!

Sincerely,
