How does this software differentiate between malicious threadjacking and two people who get into a perfectly friendly off-topic conversation?  Threadjacking, sure, but we all do it sometimes and it’s harmless.  I had a conversation with someone last night about our military connections and how rad Canada is – and regardless of the fact that we probably shouldn’t have been only half-paying attention to the point of the thread – am I to understand that we would have been blocked from posting in it entirely as malicious threadjackers?  For lack of a G-rated word, that would be kind of bullshit.

@mrbee: Groovy.  A bit boring and wet-blankety, but definitely a handy tool.  Thanks for clarifying.

Great post!

I like how much Mr. & Mrs. Bee want this to be a positive place.

This is a site where MANY of us have found support and comfort. It’s sad that the bad apples can mess it up. I think that most of us are here for the right reasons. I think that most of us are good people who are kind.  I never understood people who would get so nasty and I am thankful that Mr. Bee is staying on top of this so that the “bad apples” don’t take away from how great so many people are on this site.

 

Go to “perez” to keep it real!  haha!

I think this is a place where MANY people come to for support and constructive advice. It’s like our mother’s said “if you don’t have anything nice to say, say nothing at all”

Unless the person wants advice and your “downer comment” is meant as constructive….there is no reason to voice it.

Threadbanning is a good idea.  I’m not sure how it works, I’ll just have to see how it pans out.  Is it going to limit the amount of replies a person can do in a thread?

  I’m sorry if this was already answered or has been answered before! I skimmed the thread and didn’t think I saw an answer to this. Is it possible that users could just block messages posted from another member? Let’s say that I always noticed that mrbee was giving me harsh comments. It wasn’t enough to flag, but it still bothered me. Could there be something that I could click that would block mrbee from seeing any of my posts? I’ve seen something like that on iVillage and it really seems to help.

  Thanks!

Thank you for all your hard work Mr. Bee and all Admin/Mods/Hostesses!! I have noticed that its been pretty peaceful around here recently and I enjoy that! I tend to stay away from particularly dramatic threads anyways…or dont see them until after they have been closed, etc…but the community has felt more like a community recently and its so nice.
