Politics, Drama & Vampires Oh My!

Lately there have been a lot of things going on in the online vampire community. From someone writing articles under a false name to others spreading spam and fake organizations. I say enough. Why must this go on? I'm relatively new, been around and quiet for several years. I don't claim to be anyone special or fantastic, but I have a right to have my opinions heard.
I first came into the community through a "House in Virginia. This house shall remain nameless throughout this entire editorial. I was invited to Virginia to live. Being a young fool I did so and lived there for several months. While there I read the books of the Strigoi Vii Outer Traditions. Liber Jahira, Bellah, and Calmae. I thought, WOW this is for me. Boy was I wrong. I am legally blind, I say this because it plays a part in my story. I get SSI because I cannot legally work. So what?? So one month my payment was late. I had a gun put to my head because this so called "Lord" and "Keeper of the Veil" was pissed. So I left and made my way to Ohio.
While I was living in VA I ran into a temple located in ohio and was invited up to live with them. This time i did some investigation and found it was safe and sane ^.^ I came to OH and the first day here the"founder" of this temple left me stranded at the bus station. He made excuses and lied. My new best friends and mentors, who shall also remain nameless picked me up and brought me home after staying at the station for a night. So now, two years down the road, we are no long affiliated with this "temple." I wanted to state that for sure because there are allogations going around of myself being a backstabbing lier.
I try to keep my hands free of drama and politics, but this has gone on too long and someone needs to stop it. Drama with a fake charactor shouldn't be permitted among individuals who are trying to better themselves and have intellectual debates and discussions.
Actually it was me who was going to pick him up and Samilyn stated "We should let him deal, its his fault for not calling ahead and making arrangements first" and wanted to leave him stranded. I liked Skylor a lot but Samilyn is a manipulator and took most of my friends away from me. I would like to be his friend but she has a way of controlling people I don't know why they believe her but they do? She almost took my Temple down, she did steal the temple property (land/house) away, and wanted to take the temple from me. Thankfully things are back on track. I have worked my but off for this temple and those in the community as it is all I have after my wife and child. I am a protector and try to be a peace keeper but helping people just seems to hurt me in the end. I guess I will never learn but it is apart of who and what I am. You are free to make your own choices obviously and I respect every one for that no matter what. You wont be the first friend I have lost and Im sure not that last as many hate me because of my spirituality.
