But I thought that no-one under the age of 16 was supposed to be allowed to register on this site?

I do agree that the word c**p was probably the reason why someone reported it


InspectorGreenPen Report 14 Jun 2011 20:15

I saw your post earlier.

WHY? Perhaps it was because you used the word "CRAP" in your post.? That is why someone reported it as being unsuitable for a family site.

May I say how much that hat suits you Persie.... ;-)



Persephone Report 13 Jun 2011 14:50

I was on a thread not that long ago with Janey where petulance reigned supreme.

When those with an opposing view which is fair enough, don't stick to the point or points of the debate but resort to personal attacks.

Janey's posts came under fire several times and were RRd... why? i agreed with Janey as did others and yet ours were not reported.

i would hazard a guess that one of the opposing "debaters" wanted to reduce the thread to something farcical by continually reporting against Janey.

To me that is tantamount to having a temper tantrum...

Persie wearing her cynical hat yet again.


Gins Report 12 Jun 2011 15:32

Im not into reporting posts and dont, although there was an exception a few years ago when one person was effin and jeffin at someone else...thats the only time I reported a post in the years I have been on here

As for reporting because you dont agree with another persons view point...thats just plain petulant


Cynthia Report 12 Jun 2011 07:55

As I was the one who described the Duchess of Cambridge as looking 'lovely' at yesterday's Trooping of the Colour ceremony, I feel I must re-iterate that I was not the one who requested a review of Janey's comments.

I have great admiration for Janey as a researcher but, I just don't agree with her on certain subjects. If I were to be truly and woefully upset by her comments, I would send her a pm (much as she hates them) rather than lower my standards and have a slanging match in full view of everyone.

It would have to be in very extreme circumstances that I would request a review of anyone's post and, even then, I would tell them why I had done such a thing.

You have to keep emailing them, AnninGlos. ;-)

When I have, about the malicious reporting, I've got back the reply that there was nothing in the post that violated anything and assurances that the problem is being monitored.

Another one today!

I gather I can't say what I *really* think and everybody knows about the person in question, because of English libel laws -- although I don't think that's actually so. I do recall that old "tired and emotional" saw, though.

But if I want to give my opinion about a public figure's figure that is, well, an extremely bad model for little girls, I'm gonna say it. "Lovely" is not how I describe someone so stick-thin they disappear if they turn sideways.


AnninGlos Report 11 Jun 2011 17:04

I had an e mail but probably only because I contacted them about the RR and told them roughly what was in the post.

I had the standard, it would be reviewed and reinstated if found not to contravene T&Cs. But I had nothing to say it had been re-instated, just had to keep checking for 3 days.

I think a simple - your post has been reinstated, or an explanation why not would help us know what is acceptable and what isn't.

See what I mean, it seems to be hit and miss, no consistency

I had a response advising that I should expect mild swearing etc from an over 18s site. I asked if there had been an announcement that the age had changed from 16 to 18; no, it was still over 16 came the reply with an apology for the incorrect statement.


jax Report 11 Jun 2011 14:35

Since this new system of reporting I have not had any emails from GR if someone has reported my posts.

I have had the standard "Thank you for bringing it to our attention" if I have reported anything



AmazingGrace08 Report 11 Jun 2011 14:24

Glad you had your post reinstated but the question is did GR advise why it had been removed?

I kind of think when they do these things it would be good if they followed through with a bet better customer service. After all say you had posted something incorrectly, unless it was explained you wouldn't know you were doing something wrong.

Or maybe I am being a bit silly. I really like this site but I don't think their customer service is all that up to par compared to someother sites.


AnninGlos Report 11 Jun 2011 08:50

Joy :-) Yep!
