  I think the lady thought that since this is a SCA list that people should be 
expected to act with courtesy.  Is it so unreasonable to expect a public apology
for something which was publicly aired?  While shunning is at times worthwhile, 
should an attempt at correcting the behavior be tried first?

  Then again, maybe I am wrong.  I bow to greater wisdom.

  Milady, I am sorry that _you_ seem to be the one who feels shunned and hope 
that you will feel free to partake here again.

  The off-line Webster lists a second definition:  

    2. sexually attractive - used of a young woman

and I believe that it is with that meaning that I usually hear the term used.
