BARONY OF BODLINGTONE, KINGDOM OF BODLANDIA — The SCAllion has been made privy to a leeked piece of correspondence, in which a representative of the Board of Directors reprimands a complainant over an unacceptable word. We have decided to reprint the letter in its entirety for our readership:
Thank you for taking the time to write; your letter has been received. I also wanted to let you know that I really only read the first paragraph, due to a certain four-letter word that appeared there.
I understand that you are unhappy with the Board’s actions, and I also understand that you only used the word to emphasize a point. Honestly, I would normally carry out the fulfillment of my job description because the Board has committed to hearing the voices of SCA members and depends on me to make sure those voices get through to them. Unfortunately, your wording was so offensive to me that I was forced to use your letter -and voice- to line my cat’s litter box instead.
For future reference, please see the following list of words that will result in similar action. If people use these words in communication with the Board of Directors, their voice will never see the light of day.
Thank you for understanding our position.
