Two years ago the suggestion was made that franchises, particularly those that wish to operate within their community at various events, should sit down at come up with some group policy for dealing, internally and externally, with individuals that could damage their reputation. The response was "la la la if we ignore it, it will go away / it only affects their group not mine / no, YOU'RE stupid!"
Now a second group, who actively distanced themselves from potential trouble months back still found themselves in the position of defending their name. It's proof that a person doesn't have to be affiliated with a group at all and they can still cause a lot of damage – they just have to put on a jumpsuit in your territory and the link is there whether we like it or not.
NOW is it time to think about taking an evening and plan for a few contingencies that apparently aren't as implausible as first thought? On a per group basis, just some simple, stated guidelines of what is expected of members, how the group intends to protect minor members, and how to respond in a fan-shit intersection event?

We thank you ALL for the words of kindness, and overwhelming amount of messages and support. Stay tuned for more events and giveaways from the only Louisville Ghostbusters!"

The Bay Area Ghostbusters
From Our Team Leader: An Open Letter to Ghostbusters Fans Everywhere, Recent events have called The Bay Area Ghostbusters ideals and attitudes into question. Our team realizes that there have been comments made which reflect poorly on the team as a whole and we would like to take a moment to sincerely apologize for any distress this may have caused. The Group was founded on the belief that all fans should be able to join provided they meet our requirements and conduct themselves accordingly. This being said there have been several incidents that have reflected poorly on our team as whole, and we would like a moment to address these issues. A. Our group’s twitter feed was accidently directly linked to a members account thereby this member was tweeting his Facebook posts without his or our knowledge. We are happy to report this matter has be rectified and we apologize for the unusual and weird tweets you may have received. B. A member of The Bay Area Ghostbusters replied to a comment in a forum thread that had crossed the line, the member is sincerely sorry for anyone they may have upset during this exchange and is taking steps to rectify the situation. This team member has received a 30 day ban on events effective Dec.8th. C. There was a post regarding another team made by another group that has been linked to The Bay Area Ghostbusters, We had no knowledge of this posting and this member is in no way affiliated with The Bay Area Ghostbusters. To avoid any further confusion as to which members belong to which group it is with heavy hearts that we must sever ties to The Sacramento Ghostbusters, we do see how this could have occurred as the two teams have done so much together over the last couple of years. From now on each “Franchise” shall stand as separate entities. We do however wish The Sacramento team all the best. We understand These events may have caused undo distress towards various people, and we sincerely apologize for them. However The comments and views of a member of The Bay Area Ghostbusters does not necessarily reflect those of the entire group and should be treated as individual remarks unless made on our web page, Facebook page, Twitter feed, blog, or to the press during events. As team leader I would like to thank you for your time and sincerely offer my own humblest of apologies of these recent events, Respectfully, William Prince The Bay Area Ghostbusters
