I nudged the thread up just before Midnight as you can see and the 1st post was there then,

I have already asked GR to make this a sticky but they said they couldn't but I mailed them back and gave them 3 reasons WHY it should be a sticky thread.

If all of us that post on this thread mailed GR they maybe would think that it does need to be stickied.

I think it's disgusting that GR haven't warned the person/people that are RRing the thread to stop it..


Persephone Report 19 Jul 2011 11:24

We could all run around like demented chooks Lisa and RR (remove) posts willy nilly but good sense prevails.

I have not reported a thread, but if I did I can assure you I would have enough gumption to state why on that thread... but before I did I would PM person concerned and ask whether that person could change the wording or at the very least debate the point.

Most of us have reached a certain amount of agreement on this thread but it is a bit like talking to a brickwall because the person it should be reaching is probably sitting there reading this but not willing to come out and show themselves. If said person does not want to reveal themselves to us as Det says at least they could Pm Chrissie.

I would go as far to say I think it is disrespectful...

It isn't GR who 'keep deleting'..........the post is being 'referred' repeatedly by (probably) one very nasty-minded individual

GR can only review the referral and re-instate, which they have been doing.

I do think, however, that they are being very slow to take the necessary, appropriate action.

LIsa - if you use the drop down box 'Help' on the green bar at the top of the thread, there is an option 'Contact us'.

If you decided to do this, best to copy the thread address from the browser bar, before you follow the link, then paste it into the message. That will help them find the thread more easily.


Lisa Report 19 Jul 2011 10:56

How come GR keep deleting them reposting this message. It is madness. How can I contact GR myself to add to the reasons why this post should stay?? It is all about common sense that is all. Some people have tried to take advantage of the helpers kindness on here and the post was a warning to all nothing more nothing less. Somebody somewhere has taken this personaly as they feel it was directed at them...


Flick Report 19 Jul 2011 09:56

I see the message has been 'referred' yet again..............the person doing it is certainly persistent.....I wonder what perverse pleasure this person gets from being so silly.

I have e-mailed GR asking that this thread be 'stickied' to put a stop to the stupidity


+++DetEcTive+++ Report 19 Jul 2011 09:00

That sounds a good idea Persie - or if they didn't want to identify themselves publicly, to at least PM Chrissiex.


Persephone Report 19 Jul 2011 06:53

Does one think that this is the same person each time or a different one?
I think this is the third time first post has been RRd.
Surely if it is the same person GR would tell them to desist.

Makes one wonder if we "all" should send a letter to GR regarding the issue and request the thread to be stickied?

Or perhaps the person who is doing this would like to add to the thread and explain why?

I cant say too much at the moment except that this thread is being carefully watched by Genes Reunited.

It is very much being looked into as a matter of priority regarding the requests reviews

They have also noticed the amount of times and they have been noted

So i think action will be taken

And they have thanked me for the pm bringing it to their attention after sending them the link to this thread etc

Hi All

Just to say thank you genes Reunited for re - instating the opening post and putting all the replies back on this thread

I am also glad to see you are clearly looking at this

Thank you

Hi All

Just to say i have also shown both support for Chrissie and this thread

I also feels it needs to be stickied and action taken regarding the number of times the opening post has been re -instated and within minutes request reviewed again

I have sent a pm to someone at genes reunited regarding this and i am currently awaiting a response

As soon as i have had a response i will gladly let you know

Unless of course in the mean time Genes take the correct action of which members want to see

And the opening post re - instated and also stickied and more importantly they keep an eye to see who keeps pressing the request review button

Because someone is clearly pressing the button in my opinion for no reason as the posts request reviewed had nothing on them to warrant that course of action

I've just sent this to support

Re Chrissiex's thread on LR board,

her first post has been reported as abuse AGAIN, despite having been reinstated by yourselves on TWO occasions.. It is a good post and deserves to be kept on the board without this constant malicious campaign to remove it! Please sticky it , it is providing excellent advice to both seekers and helpers... some of whom really DO need to read it. Thankyou .

What is wrong with saying "Back where it belongs"??? Who could possibly take offence at that???? I give up :-(
