I have just seen last night's developments on this thread (which I think initially referred to this one).

Rollo's comments in particular make interesting points.

It would be a shame if that thread is dumped because of the RR on the OP.

Ken, It asked for suggestions as you said because some people don't look at this board.

I had some of my posts reinstated this morning and a nice response from GR confirming what we all thought was the reason for the RRs.

If this member continues to abuse the RR button I do hope that they are removed from the site but as we all know that isn't necessarily an end to the vendetta because:

a) multiple accounts
b) new bogus account
c) ask a friend or friends to RR

It's not just the OP being RR'd it's trawling through responses and reporting those too!

I do hope some resolution can be formed and implemented which is approved by the majority of members.

It's good news that your posts have been reinstated dangersprout, and good to have a nice response from the team.

My reinstated OP has been RRd AGAIN!

Please GR sort out this vindictive reporting.

The suggestion that members were asked to moderate in exchange for free access to records (or something similar) was raised at the consultation sessions in London earlier this year.

After the resounding unpopularity the Help Board, most active posters would look at member moderators with great distrust.

Sue - sorry to see your thread disappear again.

No one would need to know who a moderator was though...unless they announced it of course.

When I was one on a chat board I just had two log in names one for moderating and one when I was being a normal person ( well as normal as I could be) :-D

I see your OP is back again ..obviously Genes can see nothing wrong with it,they keep putting it back up.

Come on Genes now is the time to set an example and ban this person for excessive reporting :-S


supercrutch Report 18 Dec 2012 02:38

This is the one that has been RRd again! after reinstatement.

plus a few more of my posts in threads have been RRd too :-(


Susan Report 18 Dec 2012 05:00


Just read through that many reports :-S....I don't think I have seen a thread with so many

I have always thought I had a good idea who is responsible for RRing threads but never sure... now I am completely in the dark :-|

Unfortunatly only Genes can stop it all now if they want to that is ;-)



supercrutch Report 18 Dec 2012 10:04

Sue, my OP has been reinstated again and the person responsible will be removed from GR.

As to who, I don't care as long as they can't RR my posts within 30 nanoseconds of me putting them up :-D



Susan Report 18 Dec 2012 11:00


That is the best news I have heard all day :-D.

Maybe we can all get back to doing what this site was intended for .....doing Genealogy.

Well done Genes for finally taking a stand on this very annoying problem that is ruining this site.

I second the Merry Christmas wishes

Sue :-D


wisechild Report 18 Dec 2012 14:08

It´s certainly very good news that GR have taken some action at last. We´ve been complaining about it for long enough.
I would like to know though how they are going to prevent this person taking out another account in a different name & starting all over again.
It´s happened before.


supercrutch Report 18 Dec 2012 20:51

Oh dear my OP has been RRd for the third time,
