No Jax...just continuing could result in your eventual removal from the site. There is also a load of blurb about how they take each report seriously and if I think there are still posts that similarly contrevene to report them.

Anyway I have had another post requested for review - I simply asked whether there were any names being searched for in a thread that is all about another site (even the title)...and mine is the only one pulled.

Suspect someone is being deffo not posting to help any more and might not ask for help

I've just posted on that thread ...... and suggested you email

ask them why the post was RR'd, say you thought it was innocuous, and you would like to have the reason

....... Estelle has posted on threads on Suggestion to say Support will tell you why a pm has been reported or removed, and will usually reply within 24 hours (or sooner).

There is something funny going on

but please don't leave because of some idiot!

George - if that is a request for help then why not start a new thread (the request could get overlooked here!).

Just go back to Find Ancestors and use the "add topic" button towards the top right.

(sorry if it was just an example!!)

Well I can't get my breath !!! What is happening to this site !!!???

And why can't it say on a reported post or thread ===

"This post has been requested for review" by "boardname -------" because " the reason for post being reported ---------"

This would then STOP all malicious reporters. Genuine reporters shouldn't mind their name and "reason for" going on

OK so we can't advertise anything to sell etc.which is understandable (well GR isn't ebay is it) So why all the "Flashing" adverts on this site ? the one today on this page is for "the big clean" at Asda. (this is on HelenHedgehog thread-- on here its GALA BINGO !!)--- Well of course we all know the answer to this------advertisers will be paying big money to advertise on here. And of course the other answer is "Do as we say, not as we do" !!!

Jude please do as Sylvia has advised, and remember we are all behind you,

Something funny is going on here (but not laughable) and its time GR sorted it out---their reputation is at stake here, and they may find one day that all they have left on this site is "flashing adverts" and NO PAYING MEMBERS.

Most of us do "Look ups" on other sites---choose if they are free sites or paying sites----and use our findings to post on GR boards, so what is the problem in saying which other Geneology sites we use. ? OR do GR not want any requests on the boards answerd ?

Oh well !! Best wishes to all from a very bewilded and upset

I have been thinking aout this and feel I am back at school :-D. I am a standard member £10 every six months just to come on here to help other members.
I do not have a tree on here and am not that interested in the one I have elsewhere.I have found enough, that is all that matters to me.
Do GR realise that some of us do this because we are retired or disabled and it gives us something to do? If I could still work it would'nt bother me.

I really dont feel inclined to give them anymore money when there are other places I can go for free and not get treated like this because there is someone who has got it in for me.
There has been occasions where someone has been rude to me, but I have not reported their posts because I would rather others see what a nasty piece of work this individual is....someone else has then reported them so it looks like it was me?? Maybe this is the person who is doing it? I once had a post reported for saying "duplicate thread" and giving a link to the other thread...and it was removed??Funny thing is all these reported posts seem to happen in the early hours of the morning
Anyway maybe I will go back to playing poker online instead

Well said, Jax, you have put all my thoughts and feelings in a "nutshell" thank you.
