Please remember to hit alert
When somebody posts something horrible, don't respond - that just kicks the thread. Hit the alert button at the bottom left of the post and the mods will take care of it. Please, don't feed the trolls.

5. I know
This isn't LBN and it will be deleted as is appropriate.

Meantime, some of us just about had a heart attack a minute ago reading probably the worst thing I've ever seen.

I wanted to remind people while it's still fresh in their minds.

28. you shouldn't alert repeatedly
on the same post. It's not like it rings a bell in the Mods lounge and they might not have heard the first one.

It sends an email. One email is enough to get a mod's attention. 10 of them just clogs up the inbox.

25. Take it as a kindness that the good people here haven't told you
It was more than malicious, it was soullessly cruel. There was nothing in it that would benefit or inform you in any way.

10. That's exactly what I did. Fortunately they acted quickly.
It's counterproductive to show hurt or anger -- that's what they are after.

Let's hear it for the guardian mods:

12. Thank you mods! That was quick work!
Edited on Mon Jan-10-05 11:30 PM by yardwork
You can delete this thread now - I'll alert on my own thread. Thanks for letting this stay up for few minutes.

Edit: They moved it instead of locking. Thank you again, mods!

17. how is it that this jerk keeps coming back? do we have IP blocking
capability on DU? I know that if a jerk wanted, they can use more than one computer ...but it would seem that if IP blocking was used, eventually it becomes problematic to post here for someone...

34. Cowards run in packs.
One gets banned, they send another in.
None of them would have the nerve to say it alone.
don't worry, they will go down with those of us they
now ridicule and we will have the last laugh.
As if their monkey king gave a shit about them either.
Old Chinese proverb, paraphrased:

"I sit on the bank of the river.
Sooner or later, I see the bodies of my enemies float by.
They did not listen when I warned them of the poisonous
leaves of the oleander tree that grew there."
Trust me, just sit on the banks and watch.

22. Thanks, ES! Comforting to know you are watching.
Whoever had the idea of putting in the alert feature, here's another grateful pat on the back. And another for you.

Be well.

19. Hit alert, then put the offender on "Ignore". . .
that'll remove them from your screen until the Mods can delete 'em from the System. . . makes life far more pleasant.

24. I disagree, hear me out.
When you leave nasty posts up it shows just how asinine these Reich Wingers are. Now, I'm not saying to allow them to post, just remove their privileges to post. When they get nasty responses and can't respond back, I think it would drive them nuts. I think these people are funny as heck. Unless it was so bad, vulgar, violent, gross etc... that it would affect the majority, I say leave it. Maybe I'm wrong, don't flame me it was just a suggestion. It's DU's board and they can run it as they see fit. I'm just a poster, and it drives me nuts to see deleted messages. What did they say, darn it, I missed it. Maybe you can start a read only deleted message group, so we can see what they said. lol

29. Hey
Can you e-mail me w/ the name of the bad poster?
I just hit alert on another thread & wonder if it is
the same person. He was totally offensive in a sexist way.

30. I don't remember the posters name - sorry
I'm sure that their other posts are long-gone. This was a sicko, not a garden variety disruptor.

32. If you had seen it you would understand
and you would be sickened. I've PM'd you to explain.

Like old Cicero wrote, "It is as hard for the good to suspect evil, as it is for the bad to suspect good."
