Established in early 2012, the Lavender Banshees are a "moped" gang out of San Diego, CA. Their leader is Banshee Steve. Steve has been posting on the General Forum recently, touting the Banshees as "an all-inclusive moped gang" because he claims to allow people of all sexual orientations into the gang, which is a good thing. He also labels his gang as such because they claim to be all-inclusive in the bikes they classify as mopeds. Steve insists that electric and gas-powered motorized bicycles are "mopeds", even though the MA website and the state of California DMV feel differently. This in and of itself is not a big deal. However, the controversy lies in that Steve trolls the MA forums preaching his "all-inclusive new breed of moped gang for the 21'st century" garbage incessantly, pissing off many a forum user, MA branch member, and site moderator. Of note, his style of trolling is passive-agressive, and he seems to have it down to a science. As of late, he has also been polluting the wiki, too. He has made at least three separate pages, even though they are constantly getting deleted and re-edited by other forum users and MA branch members. Word around the campfire is that the "real" SD moped gangs don't think too much of him, but have more class than to make their opinions public on the MA forums (of note: The San Diego Skunks have been hosting a monthly ride entitled Sloppy Seconds Sunday. The Lavender Banshees decided to name their monthly ride Sloppier Seconds Saturday).
