Hey Steve!

For some time now the complaints have slowly trickled in about the content on your
Fan Club and your interaction with other members of OurStage. We cannot divulge
specifics in this matter because we respect the privacy of all our users here at
OurStage. We understand that people have differing opinions and that some are
easily offended &#8211; but we ultimately have the final say. We found the complaints
by users to have merit, and as we mentioned, took the action we found to be most

We appreciate all of the helpful messages you have sent us about site features,
but it does not change any decision we have made regarding your account
deactivation. There was no malicious activity or hacking of your account, the
decision was a conscious decision based from user complaints regarding your Fan
Club and communication with other members of OurStage.
