Odd PMs
« on: October 26, 2010, 02:40:37 PM »
I have never received a nasty PM. 

I have never sent one either. 

If I have something to say, I say it.  My only PMs are responses to people who PM me for information. 

This is odd.

I am wondering if people are receiving nasty PMs, has the site been hacked?  I can't imagine any one doing something like that, seriously?  Unless we have some nasty middle schoolers on here, I just can't see any adult doing that.

If it is occurring then the mods need to know. 

If you get one, forward it to the mods.

  For as long as i have been visiting these boards, I have never received nasty PMs,
    
Only ever received one that I thought was commercialism ..

      I think that for all the many members we have , it is a tiny proportion that  will be nit -picking,
       usually by someone who thinks they know best.

            Every site that is on the internetrisks being Hi -jacked.

      Maybe some are infilltrated through by non members, which I certainly hope is the case,
as I find everyone  here is so friendly , caring and sympathetic,
                      and I also love the laughter posts!, usually sent by the men friends here
                          long may this site last, .

No, I saw in one of the more 'contentious' posts on here that several members complained of getting nasty PMs.

I just can't imagine any of the people involved in that thread sending nasty PMs to any one.  I am relatively new here, but some of them are long time members, people I would trust.  I can't imagine THEM sending 'nasty' PMs.  I didn't send any either.   Name calling on here is bad enough, but then saying that some one sent nasty PMs is inflammatory.  It is divisive.  It seeks to make people 'take sides'.

If something disturbs some one, they need to take appropriate steps to correct it.  Tell a mod if you got a PM that is bothersome.

The only PMs I have received were really good, supportive.  Sad to hear that someone else's experience is no fun.

Makes one wonder if there is some mischief going on.  Hmm.

No but seriously, I just can not picture some one sending nasty PMs especially to newbies.

I, too, was shocked when I saw cruel PMs mentioned in the contentious thread, but when I went back and looked at the original thread being discussed it was clear that some people had become quite biting. 

One comment that I found rather harsh also seemed to be a follow-up to an earlier comment, either on the boards or through a PM.  Since the person attacked mentioned past unpleasant PMs, I assumed that's where the earlier comment had appeared. 

My take on it is that some people will find others annoying, and that's fine.  It doesn't mean that any person has more right to be here or to post as he/she chooses.  I agree that if someone receives a nasty message, he/she should alert the moderators.  Good advice!

Also, if someone doesn't like the way someone else posts--for whatever reason--it's not hard to avoid that person's comments rather than to get frustrated.

Hi  :)

The 'mods' advice is certainly that if anyone receives a nasty pm - please do send it on to us.

Take care - Scottie  :)
