@Katnisseverdeen:  the OP mentioned she had reported/flagged the comments with no action taken. 

but usually the mods are great, and they certainly take care of trolls quickly! (remember TheHandsomeMan anyone?)

Flag every snarky post so the mods will be notified. It’s probably easier for them to act on specific posts, than respond to complaints about a certain member.

Also, if you were moderated/received a warning, the mod giving the warning should respond to your questions about the situation. If the mod blows you off or doesn’t answer your questions completely, you can PM bakerella for additional information.

@ribbonsandbows:  i didn’t mean that, i was just using an example of how the mods are on top of things 🙂

So, the problem with this thread is not so much the content but the fact that it was started by a secondary account for the sole purpose of starting drama anonymously, which is known as a sockpuppet, which is in direct violation of the site’s ToS.

vii.     Users are only allowed one account.  If you feel the need to post something very personal or very private, you may create a secondary account for that purpose; but we ask that you stop using that account after your question is answered.  Additional accounts opened for the sake of starting drama, being rude anonymously, or responding to yourself will be closed immediately.  The user will be warned and, depending on the nature of what happened, risks losing their main account.  You can read more about sockpuppets on Weddingbee here.

As has been stated many times, we encourage users to reach out to the moderation team if they have questions about a warning. OP, I have no idea why your questions weren’t answered, but it’s very possible it may have just been an oversight. Please send a PM to the mod with whom you had the original exchange and we’ll try to get this issue resolved. 🙂

Something else to note is that, unfortunately, the mod team isn’t allowed to discuss any particular user’s moderation with anyone but that user. I know that can be frustrating, but it’s out of respect to all of the members of the community and their privacy. 🙂

@Gemstone:  How is this post starting drama? She is just trying to get information because her attempts at using the other routes have been ignored and she doesn’t want blowback if people can identify her based on the information in the OP.

The mods won’t notify you if they have given someone a warning, even if you ask. So there’s really no way of knowing if it’s truly gone without notice.

If you have an issue, email the mods. Or, even better, PM the member and see what her intent is. Maybe you are misunderstanding her.

Dont take it to the boards so we can all speculate on who it is. That’s starting up drama.

@bearlove:  As Gemstone has stated, the anonymous account made for this particular post is a direct violation of ToS.  The account was not created as an emotional or privacy issue, but only to lash out against a member of the community and the mods.

We are unable to discuss any moderation against another user.  If anyone does have any concern regarding a possible violation, we invite everyone to flag or PM a mod with any questions.

OP, I’m sorry you feel as if your flags and questions have been over looked.  We do not take anything lightly nor do we ignore what is being sent.

I hope we can resolve any issues or concerns in a private matter with the original Mod you spoke with.  Thank you.

Well this kind of backfired, didn’t it?



OP, sorry you’re unhappy here/with one person.  I would suggest trying to ignore them.  Sometimes we really are just strangers on the internet.
