How do you know someone is reporting you? were you notified by QVC? Well, if that is happening on here it wouldn't surprise me at all. 


Yeah....I read the original post w/ 'raised eyebrow'.

How does the OP know if things were being reported?

 

Hummmm....fishy, fishaaaa.


Even if someone does report a post they don't like, the mods don't automatically delete it unless it violates the Standards or is hurtful to someone.  If a post was deleted, there was something wrong with it and the poster is usually told why.

@MRSTH You can only win when you ignore them.They need the attention and gratification of causing disruption and hurt feelings.I don't care if they don't like me or what I have to say...others do and I never run out of nice posters to chat with.I won't allow anyone to ruin my day with their games because I will just move along to another topic.

When they changed the board a couple years ago I just went through the settings and unchecked a bunch of stuff.  I don't see the sig lines at all.   A sig line, in and of itself, doesn't bother me at all.  But there were always some that were like a paragraph long, or there would be two or three of them.   A sig line is supposed to be one line or less.   Smiley Happy

There you go!

 

Too bad, they miss my seasonal sig lines Woman LOL


 

Smiley Happy   Sorry you were treated like that, Noel!   You don't deserve it.    But, hey, par for the course here sometimes.   You are always the voice of reason and facts.   Some folks don't like that!

I prefer not to see sig lines.   They're annoying, IMO.   I'm glad we have that option

Someone has been trolling me all day. First they had innocuous G-rated posts deleted, calling them inappropriate. Now they reported my tagline as inappropriate. It's a quote from "1984", a novel written by George Orwell (an Englishman) and published in 1949.

Good bye

Re: Personal vendettas

A couple questions, a couple thoughts.-

 

One of the things I like most about hearts, ♥️ is that even when you "tangle" with someone, you may find yourself "in sync" with that same person a couple discussions later and freely ♥️ them.

 

QUESTION- are posts REALLY removed if other posters complain? If that's the case, it sounds like a power trip to me.

 

There are times when I'd LOVE to get into a good fierce tangle about politics or religion or other topics deemed controversial BUT- this forum just isn't the place to do that. Their board, their rules. no point in stressing over that.

 

I prefer he debate when it stays objective but I acknowledge that some posters don't understand that concept, and it seems to follow that the pile-ons seem to occur often when those gals are around. Thinking and speaking using objectivity is a discipline that some posters simply don't have. That's life.

 

In my opinion only, I enjoy being here, from corned beef recipes to birdfeeders to decorating kitchens. I like a lot of the posters hers, and don't lose sleep over the few I don't.

 

Peace, Everyone!

@violann, I did not always believe it, but I have come to believe that some moderators do delete posts that some posters report about certain posters, if that make sense.

I never saw serious inequality until about 4 months ago; now I certainly see posts deleted (not mine) that did not violate the Community Standards in any way, and I see very deliberately rude and unkind posts, which by their very contents must have been reported (and I don't necessarily mean by me - sometimes in threads I'm only reading), that are not removed.

 

My posts have not changed in content - have in fact gotten milder keeping CS in mind - and more of my posts have been deleted now than when I might have been "pushing it." It happens when certain posters are on the forums at the same time I am, , and/or when I may have had a different opinion in a thread, I'll be "followed" as the OP stated and either ptui tossed my way or several posts of mine deleted by a poster who's just pithed off at me, because they can. It's not unusual, I assume it happens to quite a few posters.

 

I really do NOT do this, though I'm sure posters believe I do. I might really dislike what someone said or the way they behaved in a thread, but I take each thread individually based on what posters say in that thread. I can't say I "never" do this, but I try hard not to. I heart posters who think I "don't like" them, or who don't like me. And yes, most of us will have a handful of posters they will just never like. But I don't "follow" them and I don't go out of my way to harass them, even if they believe I do.
