@Pappy8:  Well, it’s a BIG community, the moderators can’t be everywhere…and there’s a fine line between being mean and being honest, it’s all up to interpretation and a lot gets lost in translation here…the moderators are top notch at picking out the meanies, but if you feel that someone is violating the TOS, let them know in the support forum.

You have to flag the inappropriate posts. Mods don’t read every single post, and need the forum members to bring inappropriate stuff to their attention.

@Pappy8:  It depends. If someone is asking for opinions, and you just happen to post a great deal of ideas that person doesn’t like, they might tell you so. It might hurt your feelings, but it isn’t meant to (or, at least, when I am honest like that it isn’t meant to.)

Saying something like “I really think with your shape a different silhouette would suit you better” or “You know _____ is really against conventional etiquette, right?” is a lot different than “That dress makes you look like you have Godzilla legs” or “Wow, you suck at life.”

Is it possible that they were just trying to be helpful? In my experience, sometimes the most helpful comments are the ones that disagree, because they make you think about things and reasons and stuff.

@Pappy8:  How do you know how many flags someone gets?  I don’t think you can see that unless you are a moderator…

@Pappy8:  is it the same person who comments on posts just to be mean? I think she commented on someone’s pictures saying (edited, because I don’t want to repeat it) earlier this week?

Edit: I just checked your past post, I know who it is. I’ve flagged multiple posts from her. including on your post. 🙂

@Pappy8:  Hmm sounds like a troll, hopefully they’ll realize they’re not welcome in this community.

@EffieTrinket:  exactly, cos when we ask for your opinions you should want opinions as long as they’re phrased constructively n not nastily. The whole point of of bringing things to this site is the size of the community n the different personalities you can get answers and opinions from, the last thing we want us a bunch if yes-men to every decision

@Pappy8:  I went looking for what you were talking about, and I think you need to look at the other POSITIVE comments and let hers roll off your back.  Your pictures are awesome — I could never do that.  Many of us would not have the confidence.  Who cares what ONE person says?  I am guessing she was jealous that she could not do that and lashed out due to her immaturity.

@Pappy8: People like that are mean to others because they aren’t happy with themselves and it makes them feel better. Ignore it. 🙂

She doesn’t post much but when she does it usually seems to be nasty. It doesn’t happen enough for the mods to call her on it I think. Some people are just children unfortunately.
