    Moderator Alert Discussion

    There are two very sad things that struck me as I read this, ******. Having someone threaten to look up your freaking home address for further harrassment is utterly astounding to me. I would hope that poster would be immediately banned! Secondly, that there are so many alerts in the first place.

    I am so very thankful you guys volunteer for this job, and you certainly deserve better treatment. I hope we can all strive to do better around here.

    How shocking! I thought that we here at WS were high caliber individuals! I can't believe that such a thing as threats occurs. To be honest, as you said I am in disbelief, that there are so many alerts. Yes, of course there will be disagreements, but I thought we were mature, intelligent individuals here. My goodness.

    I second, Taxi's thanks to all you mods! I think you do a wonderful, sometimes thankless job.

    Are these kinds of things happening now on WS? I have even more admiration for the moderators here than before, if that's possible.

    I can't imagine what the mods go through that we never hear about. Thanks to all the mods for everything you do.

You will be given an opportunity to enter your comments, and the email that the moderators receive will contain your comments, a link to the thread, and a link to the post in question. This is the fastest and most efficient way to notify the staff of a potential problem.

    We appreciate alerts sincerely sent. However, abusing the alert system is a good way to get a one-way ticket out of Websleuths. The following actions, for instance, are abusive:

    --Alerting repeatedly on the same poster;

    --Demanding a specific outcome;

    --Threatening to look up staff member's home addresses and harass them if certain actions are not taken;

    --Alerting on the same post more than once

    These are examples, not a full list.

    If appropriate, one or more of us may contact you for more information or to say thanks. Most probably you will not hear from us - there are just too many to handle every one in the same manner as a social discourse.

    Contacting us and demanding information about how we are handling your alert is considered a Very Bad Idea.
    Bless y'all's hearts.

    Cool Gosh .... I am very new here ...

    I certainly hope that I have not offended anyone.

    Sincerely;

    Thanks Amra. I deal with it on a small scale as a moderator on another forum but I don't have nearly that many posters to answer to.

    That is so sad that someone would threaten to find out a mods address or that they would think they have a choice in the decision made by the mods. Thanks mods for the jobs that you do.

    You're The MAN..........and anyone that even entertains an evil thought of Tricia had best think twice. Protective comes close to describing how many of us are.....
