How do I find out why a member who just signed up was deleted. We share a pc but that shouldn't be a problem.

You can only have 1 account per customer. The software they're running probably can't tell the difference between you and the other person sharing the pc. It's the same IP address.

I bt a buddy $20 that I could create a bs profile, and post a bs story on here and get the same 10 trolls and another 10 wanna be trolls to respond with their usual hate filled opinions.

I am $20 richer now.

Thank you loser trolls.

No, we don't need moderators, we need less ego and stupidity. And just how would a moderator dealt with this particular post? If Flaneur chose to be an idiot, let her. This isn't life of death stuff, it's entertainment and time wasting at best. If you think it's more than entertainment, go see a professional because you have problems. It's not like there haven't been trolls before and we will have them again. If you have to be babysat, maybe go play on Facebook and post pictures of your cats and dogs.

Bluemoon,

This situation is a little more complicated than you may be aware of. Here is a little context.

Fisherdale 64 posted a second thread, http://forums.plentyoffish.com/datingPosts16325437.aspx

In that thread he said the following


I bt a buddy $20 that I could create a bs profile, and post a bs story on here and get the same 10 trolls and another 10 wanna be trolls to respond with their usual hate filled opinions.

Thank you loser trolls.


This was followed by a post by a female poster who stated in her post that Fisherdale had sent her a private e-mail in which he threatened her.

The following poster – a male forumite encouraged her to contact the authorities

I wanted to make sure that this was documented before the original OP deleted his post. I documented in the forum file and I also went to his profile and filed a complaint. I tried to send the female a note but it did not get to her because of her filter restrictions.

Fisherdale did delete the 2nd thread, and his profile was still active until recently. His profile is now deleted.

I have no problem with what I did. The forum has ‘rules’ and a system for addressing breaches to those rules. I am okay with that. In this particular situation, the documentation of breaches and threats are useful in the event that the threats escalate.

I understand that you disagree with my filing a complaint, I have no issue with you regarding this difference of opinion. I understand that the issue of ‘moderators’ on the forum is a hotspot for many people.

I'm sorry, I owe you an apology. I thought YOU were the one that created the profile and the post. Again, I apologize. The link you above must be deleted as I can't open it. The other thread is still going. I see the profile is gone as well, I also reported his profile for deletion last night.

We have a few annoying ones that keep creating new profiles, posting inane or stupid threads, nasty comments and then deleting or getting deleted. That idiot awesomefiftiesguy has had 4 profiles in the last month. Again, these profiles can be reported and hopefully deleted. Attention seekers I guess, idiots.

I still don't think we need moderators. If we do get some back, I think they should be switched up and not stay longer than a year. It's a thankless job. And other than a few like the fellow you reported on and the one I mentioned, the forums seems to sort itself out.

bluemoon24_7: I'm sorry, I owe you an apology. I thought YOU were the one that created the profile and the post. Again, I apologize.


A few questions come to mind upon reading this part of your post.

Why apologize again? Isn't one apology enough? If one apology isn't enough then why not say "I double apologize" only one time rather than creating an entirely separate sentence to apologize a second time? It just seems like a waste of bandwidth. Then again, if one apology isn't enough, how can you be sure two apologies will suffice? Maybe you should say "I apologize thrice." Sounds neat, clean and has a nice cadence to it.

For what it's worth, you didn't have to apologize at all. The way the post was written it did appear as though flaneur001 created the profile and wrote the offending post, because the quote feature was not used. That sort of sloppy posting is the fault of the initial poster, not you.

Bluemoon,

Thank you for the apology. I did assume that you did not know the back story. I do appreciate the 'context' for your earlier post, it helped me understand why you responded the way you did. All the best,

Flanuer,

I tried to contact you, and I also could not connect with you, because of the age restrictions--the same age restriction which prohibited you from contacting me.

Thank you, for attempting to contact me.

No, he didn’t. It was voted off by the forum.

And no moderator required.

Thank you for your report blueguy. We'll take care of that right away and make sure no one bothers you again.

And if someone is harassing you in "real life", post about it here and we'll fix that for you as well.


Supersoulson: Why does this " subject " still exist ?


Because every time someone posts to the thread with a stupid question such as "why does this subject still exist", it "bumps" or reactivates the thread and brings it to the top of the forum where others are likely to post to it as well.

I can't believe Blueguy has the b@lls to report someone after all the inane, nonsensical and stupid posts he makes. the guy posts like he's 16.

Do folks not realize that there are no moderators to delete anything?
