Comment on another site

Post  treckers on Sun Jul 17, 2011 7:22 pm

Hello Deborah,

I want to bring to everyone's attention a comment that was recently posted to another site - I have sent a message to both your site and it as well. I was disgusted as it is clearly apparent that it is the same person - not too many people post on that site and certainly not so close together - so obvious that they are answering themselves.

This is the first time that I have posted here - I have watched the site for a long time but have only registered recently because the site has added security and controls. The reasons for which are clear now - cyber bully. Well - you had a pretty good run without one so I guess it was only a matter of time.

Please do not let someone with issues ruin it for the rest of us. I am sure you will be pleasantly surprised by the support you get from this. They say there is no such thing as bad advertising.

Will

"Zen"

Post  deborah on Sun Jul 17, 2011 8:48 pm

Hi Will,

Welcome to the forum - I just got home and read your e-mail and post. I visited the "other site" and agree with you re inevitability. You are also right about why this site has had to put in some security. When it became obvious that it had a "cyber bully" (thanks for a great description) I contacted the forum hosts. They offer so many services- should have started out with them but live and learn. Anyway, as of last week they are now controlling the site moderating and review which means inappropriate comments are deleted pretty much instantly and posters are banned if they persist with that sort of agenda. These guys have alot of experience with this sort of thing and the information that they are providing about this poster is very detailed. I get an e-mail notification when they edit, delete or ban and that is it - no time wasted and forum members not subjected to inappropriate comments. Love the distance - gives you a new perspective - can't believe that someone would waste their time doing this and no longer my problem.

Hope that you post again soon - the site has had quite a few new registrations since login required to post etc. It has not been impacted in the least so I continue to look forward to seeing new collections and new discussions with everyone. I appreciate as well your comments about the book. I am getting alot of good feedback - looks like it has a good chance of being carried in some bookstores as well so am super excited about those prospects. Will post more about that later.

Thanks again.

Deborah

You're right and appreciate the support!

hi Glassnut,

Thanks for the support! I appreciate it. Anything new in your collection? How are you finding the prices and the search? Have you been able to add much more?

It is broiling here in Canada - thanks to your fellow TexansLOL What is it like in Seatlle. You guys must be feeling smug with your cool weather.

Deborah

post registration terms

Post  AnnieB on Mon Jul 18, 2011 2:38 pm

Hi Deborah,

I belong to quite a few online groups and they have all been hit by this type of person. Just typical of being anonymous. What I think might help make clear what administrators and moderators disallow is if you would post in the forum the terms that we all agreed to when we asked to beregistered members of this forum. It is a privilege not a right and I am pleased to see that you are intent on keeping this forum safe for collectors.

Keep up the good work.

response from the "other site's" administrator

Post  treckers on Mon Jul 18, 2011 5:33 pm

Hello again Deborah,

I thought you nmight appreciate seeing that other administrators share your concerns, practices and values. Now this subject is closed. But - I also think AnnieB's suggestion is a good one.

PLEASE RETURN THIS FORUM TO DISCUSSIONS ABOUT THE DESIGN OF CHALET GLASS. IF THIS THREAD CONTINUES IN THIS FASHION I WILL CLOSE IT. THE PURPOSE OF THE CDR IS NOT TO AIR COMPLAINTS BUT TO ENCOURAGE DEBATE ABOUT DESIGN IN CANADA.

posting terms of acceptance to forum

Post  deborah on Thu Jul 21, 2011 10:24 am

Hi again,

I gave the idea of posting the terms of acceptance on the forum a great deal of thought and checked with the "backend" guys to get their opinion. Overall, everyone felt that since this was a problem created by one person and the security of the site has been addressed, it would not be fair to treat everyone else as if they had created a problem. Like Kenneth Blanchard says, "There is nothing so unequal as the equal treatment of unequals." So I am going to take their advice (what do you hire experts for if you then don't listen to themLOL) and let them deal with any future issues if and when they arise in the appropriate manner.

Thanks again for the suggestions.

Deborah

good idea

Post  AnnieB on Sat Jul 23, 2011 11:00 am

hi Deborah,

That makes sense. Hopefully the new attention focused on protecting the content and posters will be all thats needed to keep problems at a minimum.

spam and phishing

Post  cwms on Tue Jul 26, 2011 11:51 pm

Hi Deb,
I was going to send you a PM about this, but PM's are disabled.
I noticed that when I Google my email address, a link to this website shows up. Is it possible for that to be blocked?
Thanks,
Brenda

Hi Brenda,

I am sending you an e-mail and posting this as well to make sure that you get an answer as soon as possible. I contacted the site's administrators and they told me that they have no power over Google and that you would have to contact them. It is not in any site's control to impact/block etc what shows up on any search engine's listings.

Hope this information helps.

Deborah
