Interesting news...from a far off place

Oh back in 1998, I belonged to this Roman group called Nova Roma.  I enjoyed it....perhaps too much...but I became very active and involved in its success and development.  And around 1999 I did something well...not right...I ended up finding out where the board of directors met online and basically lurked and read what was going on, before I became a member of the Board of Directors.  I confessed, was never caught, I just told that I was able to access the information, and it caused a huge stink, because well...I am overbearing, confrontational and I tended to be the type of person (in the organization) that either you liked me or you hated me.).  So, I was reprimanded.  I accepted it...and from that point on worked as hard as I could to overcome that.  I think I did a pretty good job, but was still confrontational to the extreme..but I and a few others became known as the Boni (arch conservative/traditionalists) in the organization and with that came ALOT of conflict...too much so and my enjoyment diminished as the conflicts rose and just took over.  By the time I moved to Arizona I had all but walked away from NR.  This despite reaching the pinnacle of traditional historic Roman Republican authority (holding the Quaestorship, Praetorship, Consulship and Censorship).  I know it probably seems corny now, but at the time..with the amount of work I put into the organization I was proud of my achievements. Anyway, today I just got news from a friend on facebook who is still active in the organization that my reprimand was officially rescinded.  Honestly, at this point I could care less if it was there or not.  Removing it fro official status does not take away the fact that it occurred.  Only that it is not "officially" on the books.  And, despite it being on the books it did not stop me from being elected to every office I ran.  Just whenever there was the remotest controversay surrounding me, it was always brought up as see...Sulla (that was my nickname) is untrustworthy and suspect.  It's a nice gesture what they did, but not necessary, I guess is what I am trying to say.

1 Salve Sulla/Robert,

Your reprimand was removed, as was that of Marius Fimbria, who has sort of returned to the outskirts of Nova Roma.

I know what you mean about the fighting there...
