Claire, would you remove my surname, please? Thanks.

Goodnight, all.

Night Joy :-)

Ice Ice Baby, most sites suggest not showing your own or someone else's full date of birth so that it can't be used for identity fraud.

Janey, I do agree that the reference number or link is needed, I just looked back at an email I received from support having rr'd a post on LR myself last month, it just gives the full name of the poster...something I certainly did not need to be told in any case.

Well, just noting that the first three posts in the thread, which had all been reported, have now been restored.

And nobody has acknowledged responsibility for the reports.

How odd.

No vendettas around here, folks; nope, nothing to see, move along.

So you did not get an email from GR telling you who reported your post and why then?



JaneyCanuck Report 17 May 2011 17:50

No, because they weren't deleted, so they didn't email me to tell me why they didn't delete my posts. ;)

I haven't had any posts deleted since "the change" (I know! amazing!), so I don't know what post-deletion emails to the person whose post is deleted do say. I'd doubt they name the alerter!

They did, however, take the opportunity, in replying to my email about another privacy-violation issue (claiming that the links to 5 posts on Living Relatives that I gave them were dead, which they are most definitely not -- just unbelievable ...), to chide me about something entirely unrelated.

The thread the chiding related to, interestingly, contained a post from a very low-post-count user whom I had not previously encountered, stating that she had been "led to believe" certain things about me. Huh, quelle coincidence. No vendettas around here, folks ...

Heh, I have a post on this very board asking about no-name posters!

Is it the poster's first post? I'm wondering whether there is one of those famous glitches that causes that, because that's where I first noticed it happening.

I think the one I actually reported was because it was on Living Relatives -- simply because with no username, there was no way at all for anyone to reply!

If there is no name dont you just click on the purple send message thingy?



JaneyCanuck Report 17 May 2011 18:22

Hm, I didn't notice whether there was one in the two posts I'm thinking of; slow to catch up to newfangled things, me.
