Forum Posting Violations Please Report HerePage 1 of 5    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
    This Thread is for Plentyoffish Forum Members to make Reports of Forum Rule Violations, Rule Breaks or other Forum-Related Abuse.




    When posting your Report here, please indicate/include the following Information:

  • The URL of the Thread in Question.

  • (The URL of this Thread is
    http://forums.plentyoffish.com/datingPosts898384.aspx
    as you can see at the top of your browser)


  • The Poster's Identity
  • (Only if Forum-Posting Related !!!)

  • A brief One line Description of the Violation, Rule Breaks or Abuse.

  • Thread Page and Msg: Number where the violation is or starts (if it's the whole thread that is in violation, then of course, no need to give the message #)(

  • (The Msg: Number is on the second Line down from the Poster's ProfileThumbnail Pic to the left of his Message Post)




    ENSURE YOU DO NOT USE THIS THREAD FOR ANY OTHER REASON BUT TO REPORT A VIOLATION - anything else, email a Moderator. Continue to argue any reports in this thread and your posting privileges will be suspended or outright removed - No Debate on this matter.




    Here are many of the Reasons why you would file a Report:


  • Redundunt Thread

  • It means there are already very similar or identical Threads on the same Topic or Subject Matter in Existence. Each Poster should use the Site's Search Feature first to locate a Thread about the Topic of Interest to them, before creating a new one.

    A Thread in any Local Forum can only become redundant in that same Local Forum, unaffected by whatever Threads are in Existence in any other Local or Global Forum. No Billboarding

  • Not a Valid Topic

  • This is the same as "Forum Spam" which is characterized by the Initiation of Threads or Posts that contribute nothing to a Forum, be it "Off-Topic" or "On-Topic".

    Examples include: Empty Messages, Messages with few Words that have no Relation to the current Thread or Discussion, and those Posts that state they are Spam, either to annoy or increase a Member's Post Count.

    It could also be obnoxious Posts, such as Bumping a Thread, Chatting, Smilies "only" on an ongoing continuous Basis, connection with Surveys, Contests, Pyramid Schemes, Chain Letters, Junk E-mail, Public Notices, or even large Quantities of Off-Topic Replies.

  • Thread Topic Hijacked

  • Here you would report Posters who are changing the Subject of the Original Post Topic, ie. making Off-Topic Posts, Chatting, Trolling, etc.


  • Chat Thread/Post

  • A Thread, or a series of Message Posts where no Topic or Subject is being Discussed.
    (Chat: to talk socially without exchanging too much information; casual conversation; an interchange devoid of any subject or Topic)

  • Spam Thread/Post

  • Someone who promotes either by LINK (Website), ADDRESS, PHONE NUMBER or any other means any Person, Establishment of Commerce or any other Entity that engages into any Type of Transaction for the Exchange of Money. This also incl. Website's which either mirror or link off to other Sites such as adverstising Front Ends. No Links to free Hosting Sites, ie. Geocities, etc.

    Weblinks posted to Non-Commercial Info/Media, Library or News Sites are permitted, but only if relevant to the Topic under Discussion.

    Non-Spam Weblinks to Commercial Sites which are Topic relevant but are not posted for the Purpose of Promoting/Marketing anything are substituted for as in the following (2) Two Examples:

    http://www.mypostedlink.com ...becomes... 'mypostedlink'

    ...or... Go to Google and search for mypostedlink

    DO NOT post Weblinks to any indecent, nude, racist, or other offensive or illegal Websites.

    Using a Weblink only for an 'Original Post' of any Thread as a substitute for posting a valid Topic constitutes Spam.

    (also applies to Message Posts that contain Spam.)

  • Billboard or Contact-Broadcast Thread/Post

  • People that either create new Thread or post Messages to promote themselves on the Forum to have someone(s) contact them (Troll Posts), often posting their e-mail address as well. Sometimes they even make such Thread "To Get Other People's Opinions" for Advice about THEMSELVES such as:

    "Am I Ugly? What do you think?" ...or...

    "Would a Girl go out with a Guy like Me? Do I need Plastic Surgery?" ...or...

    "Do you think I could ever be happy? Do Swahili Girls like my small Penis?".

    "Rate my Picture. What do all women think of Me"?

    The Common Denominator to these types of Threads/Posts is that they Do Not Have A Bona-Fide Topic, are usually general broad-based Questions that do not beg any serious Response, and only draw Attention to the Poster HIMSELF..

    Billboarding is pretty well the same as "Contact Broadcasting", but with identical or similar Posts in the same, or other Thread throughout the Forum.


  • Troll Thread/Post or Offensive Topic Matter

  • Any series of Messages from a Poster who is set on causing Conflict or provoking other Posters.

    The posting of gross, disgusting and revolting Subject Matter, etc.

  • Bashing, Insulting, Slamming other Posters

  • Report Posters who post Messages that insult, bash and slam other POF Members.
    Same goes for Thread or Messages warning others of previous dates or meetings you have had in order to embarrass, slam or humiliate them.

    You can slam & bash the Topic or Subject under Discussion all you like, but you cannot insult, bash and slam other Posters.

    No public posting of any Personal Contact Information or private E-mail Messages.

  • Flame War

  • A Thread or series of Posts of a heated argument that results in those involved posting personal attacks on each other instead of debating the Topic at hand. Topic can be "hijacked" by two or more people who would rather "flame" each other than discuss the subject of the Thread. A "Flame War" is the practice of posting Messages that are deliberately hostile and insulting to a Discussion Board. A "Flame" may have elements of a normal Messages, but is distinguished by its intent, is never intended to be constructive, to further clarify a discussion, or to persuade other people.

  • Libel/Slander Thread/Post

  • A Thread or Message Post that contains aforethought, injurious and malicious Defamation of Character, which seeks essentially the exposure of hatred, contempt, ridicule, usually by means of spreading and/or publishing false, incinuated or twisted Information about another POF Member.

    No Misquotations or Misrepresentations of other Posters.

  • Protest Thread/Post

  • Anyone that creates a Protest Thread in respect to the Administration of this Site, instead of E-Mailing the Admin or one of the Moderators, will have their posting Privileges permanently revoked, banned forever, all Message Posts deleted, and every Trace and Symbol of that Poster from this Forum removed.

  • User Name in Thread Header or Opening Post

  • No Poster Names in Thread Headings are allowed, unless specific approved Circumstances exists.

    Any Thread Topic that includes, discusses or makes Reference to, and in any Form names an Individual or Group of Forum Poster(s), whether specifically stated, incinuated or suggested, a POF Member or any Administrative Personel, is not allowed.

  • Polarized Thread

  • No Thread may exist designated exclusively for Response from a specific Gender, Ethnicity, Orientation, Religion, Public, etc. Such a Thread will be deleted. The entire Concept of a Forum is for anyone to post their Opinions and Thoughts, providing they are On-Topic, on any Thread he or she sees fit.

    As an Example:

    ...This is a Question ONLY for the Men to... = No Good!!!

    ...This is a Question for the Men to... = Is OK!!!

    Further, any Thread or Topic that cause a similar Type of Polarization may also come under Review on a Case by Case Basis.

  • Excessive Sequential Replies/Post-Whoring

  • Any Thread that has More Than (2) Two consecutive Messages by Only (1) One single Individual within a 24 hour Period, will have their excess posted Messages deleted unless they are corrective Edit-Action Post. (This is also known as "Sequential Replies", or posting (2) Two Replies in a Row. Please allow Others to Reply before you post again.)

    Any Thread that has more than (1) One single Page of Only (2) Two Individuals posting back & forth within a 24 hour Period will have their excess posted Messages deleted as well.

    Any Thread that has more than (2) Two Pages of No More Than (3) Three Individuals posting back & forth within a 24 hour Period will also have their excess posted Messages deleted.

    (Material such as Poems, Lyrics & Quotes in the Poetry Category are exempt...)

    Don't post just to increase your Number of Posts. If you have nothing to say on a certain Matter, then don't post.

  • Illegal/Unlawful Thread/Post

  • No Discussion of how to illegally acquire copyrighted Material.
    Do not post Messages that violate Federal, State/Provincial, or Local Laws

  • Copyright/Intellectual Property Infringment Thread/Post

  • Do not post Messages that violates a Copyright, Intellectual Property Right, Trademark, Patent, Trade Secret, or is bound by NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement).

  • Improper Thread/Post Format (Illegal UBB/HTML Code, CAPS, etc.)

  • Do not enter any HTML Tags or UBB Code into your posted Messages other than 'Bold', 'Italics', 'Underscore' and 'Reply Quote'. Hyperlinks, Font Colours, Sizes & Types, or any other HTML Tags/UBB Code are reserved for Use by the Admin and Moderators.

    No irritating posting Styles, including use of all Caps and excessive Punctuation.

    All Post to be in the English Language only unless one is posting in a non-English local forum.

    No more 'Word Game' Threads are allowed in the 'Global Forums' . Thread Topic which are based on and/or involve as its Subject under Discussion any POF Members are no longer allowed.




    For any Non-Forum Related Matters, such as Issues with Profiles or other Forms of Abuse, use the Report Member Link at the Bottom of any given User's Account. (You must be logged into your E-Mail for that Link to appear at the bottom of anyone's Profile. And, this Link only shows up after 10 Log-Ins)

Message 334 - flamebaiting.


You guys do realize that you're discussing physics of the colors that are revealed through a prism with a child holding a crayon from the Crayola box, don't you?


The rebuttal in message 335 should probably go as well.

-entire post goes off topic-msg 124 ladyc4-flames:

"Which makes me think the outcry of "unfit parent" is simply a red herring, because what somebody REALLY wants to yell about is another woman who isn't charging the "correct price" for access to her p*ssy is undercutting other p*ssy suppliers who think the price for it should be higher.

Look, if a guy isn't willing to pay out the a$$ to "court" a woman, it's because he doesn't WANT TO-not because some other woman is "undercutting" the p*ssy market
But if you actually came out and SAID that-accused her of underselling the "market" you'd give away your game.
So instead you yell about "low self-esteem" or accuse someone of being an unfit parent"

Thread title "Players"
user lovah99

Thread names another user (although not the one she seems to be complaining about).

Also, the user's profile states that she is not looking to date but is just looking for horror dating stories for her blog (which is also what her forum thread is about).

Actually the name calling, flame-baiting, trolling, and bashing comes predominately from one poster: fuglygirl

Starting with post #46 (though a review of the posting history would show the same infractions throughout the threads participated in):


Now , now, ladies - no need to get all negative and critical just because someone much younger & prettier is in the house. Don't worry, we are not in the same market. Don't feel threatened, the 60+ middle aged man set is all yours


#132

BBI I am so flattered that I have attracted my very own stalker who tracks my every post and spends plenty of time thinking up snotty repartee..

the big bald patch is cute., though

VV

thanks granny I got the message


Escalating to post #134


..of course, when you were 25 the internet did not exist, but nice try..

having to chip out messages on stone tablets or send smoke signals would certainly slow the whole process down I am sure..

how many hours of daily internet access is allowed at the seniors rest home ?

more on weekends?

Your reason isn't tradition, we the forum can see through your bullshit. Your reason is motivated by selfishness, not tradition.

You being upset that you have to put work in (and possibly be turned down) to get what you want has nothing to do with you being upset about rules. It has everything to do with showing the quality of your character, which is poor for obvious reasons.

^^^^ You do realize there haven't been any active mods for some time so your little tit for tat reporting of your "usual suspects" will go on deaf ears. I personally suggest you grow a pair if you can't post with the big boys/girls. It's rather pathetic to see you constantly report the same two or three people when you get your knickers in a twist over something trivial or just for the sake of reporting. If it's a controversial topic, you will get controversial replies. Suck it up buttercup or move on to the Recipe threads. Just sayin...... And you can report me for this but I just don't care.
