Sorry for coming in 2 weeks after this discussion ended. I have been really busy lately. Here`s my two cents:

I wouldn`t be so optimistic. These crazies are like ants - you can`t escape them!! Open up a new site/forum and they`ll be there.
Crazy weird! I worked with the Dallon kid with the tattoo. He never came across to me as one to look for trouble. He was asked to remove a rather tall mohock (or comb it down) while at work and the next day it was gone. Of course, our employer wasn`t at all associated with the LDS Church, which could have been a factor in not objecting. I find it very, very improbable that one would be kicked out CCC for wearing tattoos considering all the tattoo-clad shoppers I have seen there.

Some people really need to get a hobby. I honestly would be happier if these people stayed home and let the rest of us enjoy the mall in peace. I honestly think the impact of a hand full of trouble-seeking crazies will be very minimal to CCC. In fact, it might even save them money not having to repair water/landscaping features or scaring away the business of other shoppers with inappropriate behavior. Some people just want to victimize themselves to make some sort of point. Maybe a disgruntled person adhering to an alternative lifestyle who got kicked off Temple Sq wants to "stick it to the man" by creating drama at CCC. They fail to realize that CCC is operated by a national retail developer with malls in areas where people wouldn`t consider "homophobic" or "intollerant" like L.A. and Miami. A woman could just as easily yell "rape!" after being asked by security not to trample the foliage or someone of color accusing them of being "racist" after asking them not to use offensive language. To distract from the fact that they were doing something inappropriate, they bring up something completely irrelevant to turn themselves from perpetrators into victims.
