Re: Suspension from the OAHI CAFE
Could you please provide the relevant sections of the Web Policy of which I am in breach of please? There is nothing in the policy restricting the right of members from re-posting on any other discussion board those of which are posted on the CAFE. As a matter of fact in the Web Policy it states succinctly OAHI cannot guarantee the posts will be secure or not forwarded, et ceteras. It does not state in the rules that such activity is restricted or that one can be suspended for same. Nor does it appear I am in breach of the other relevant sections of the Web Policy. Further, please explain what section(s) of the OAHI bylaw or PR158 have been violated so that I might properly react to this seemingly unilateral decision made without any input whatsoever from me.
Can you tell me who serves on the Forum Committee please?
Could you please provide me with a copy of the posts in questions please? Have other posters in this matter on the CAFE been similarly suspended?
Can you please tell me how a 90 day suspension was decided on given that there is nothing in the by-laws permitting suspension, nor empowering anyone but the DPPC to enact discipline as per the by-laws?
Why is there no email contact addressfor Ms. Lalich considering she is an employee and forum administrator? This is most unusual for a discussion forum not to have a contact on the forum board.
Can you please explain to me why my Constitutional rights have been infringed on? After all OAHI is legislated under the provincial government as a self regulating body as per PR 158.
If the Forum committee can not substantiate its claims and what appears to be a lack of due process and impartiality in this matter and apprehension of bias, I request that my access to the CAFE be immediately reinstated.
A reply at your earliest convenience is hereby[size=3] [size=2]respectfully[/size] [/size]requested.
I have sought legal counsel and trust my position is clear in this matter.
Yours very truly,

You have had a number of posts on the Knowledge Café that are of an unacceptable nature. You have been warned that the Café is not to be used for unapproved posts. Your links on another forum to the OAHI Knowledge Café, a private members only forum, clearly do not follow the spirit of the OAHI Café rules that you agreed to adhere to as a member of Café. The committee has suspended you from the Knowledge Café for a period of ninety (90) days which is to be immediately implemented.
