Jay, Smorty, SOMEONE! enough is enough

By jdclyde ·
It is finally too much.

http://techrepublic.com.com/5208-11189-0.html?forumID=3&threadID=188385&start=0

I am not a fan of moderating, but this is beyond anything that belongs here, to the extent that underage has gone.

banishment would be appropreate as well as pulling his discuusions.

Agreed

by gadgetgirl In reply to Jay, Smorty, SOMEONE! e ...

already posted a little mini-rant....

I agree about the advertisers, though. They can't be exactly pleased if they look at the site to see how their ad looks, and find idiotic things like that associated with it. It also promotes the thought that they may think all TR members are of the same vein - which ain't good for any of us.

The site link, though, is what irks me the most - some members, if caught by their employers/filtering programs may be disallowed from TR in the first place.

(and that particular link is now on three different discussions, btw, all posted by the same person to the same person)

I, too, am not a fan of monitoring: grief, most of us (regulars) on here are old enough, sensible enough and amenable enough to monitor ourselves, which is what I get the impression TR was trying to achieve. (Thanks for that, guys) But we do need some back-up - especially when it comes down to getting posts/people amended/pulled/barred.

Surely those members (specifically, kiddyposters) who have proved that they have no worth here whatsoever should not be allowed to continue, having proved their worthlessness?

Extended rant over. Apologies, this discussion got a bit near my particular soap box.

Way past time.

Obviously for the most part this forum doesn't need moderating as we have shown in the past. Most of us can discuss, even with disagreements, without resorting to absolute stupidity.

This has gone way past tolerance. I agree with the rest in this post, PLEASE GET THIS GUY OUT OF HERE.

We're on it

Sorry for the hassles this guy has been causing.

We are working on getting the offensive posts pulled down. We've also locked his account, so you shouldn't see more posts (unless he starts a new account).

Again, sorry for the hassles. Hopefully, this will be the end of it.

Problem is

by DMambo In reply to Offensive posts deleted

that he can just come back with a different e-mail address and be the same annoying dork with a different user name.

I know there's no way to stop this, but I guess it's up to us to self-police and ignore the most brazen posters.

I'm glad JD and Mark let you guys know pronto. Next thing you know, you'll have to have a formal in-house policy on behaviors that cross the line and cause accounts to be disabled.

I think it is safe to say

by jdclyde In reply to We're on it

that no one is blaming you or anyone at TR for this idiot, so nothing for YOU to have to be sorry about.

Now Underage, I just wish we could tell his mom and get him grounded!

I feel sorry for the NEXT discussion site he finds.

Thanks for getting on this first thing! Heck of a way to start your day?!?!

Thanks, Smorty

by gadgetgirl In reply to We're on it

no need for apologies (IMHO), you weren't causing hassle, he was.

Thanks for losing him ....... just hope he stays lost!

Now, must work on a Smorty emoticon for the other thread......
