Default Trolls and other disgruntled members

It has come to our attention that many of you have gotten uninvited PM messages which disparage our forum and the way it is run. If at any time you are offended by such invasions of your privacy, there is a report button to the right of the PM title, and all it does is notify all the mods & admins of your feelings regarding the issue. Don't be afraid to use 'Report' at any time. It's the kind of feedback we need to maintain a safe and strong forum.

If any of you have received recent uninvited PMs, it is of vital importance that you report them as described above. Admin needs your cooperation in situations such as this, or else the trolls win at disrupting our forum.

And I'm disappointed Shanny was named, while I was not.

Good thing you're smiling, Carl . . . cuz we pounce on political posts with a vengeance & pitch them as far into outer cyberspace as possible!

This kind of thing goes in cycles . . . somebody gets pissed and starts recruiting others for backup. Or a troll gets banned & comes back with a new name to make a big splash by PMs. It's the trolls who keep us hopping until we get a fix on their 'fingerprints' & can spot them more easily. That's why it helps if you all pitch in . . . one of our members used to have an eagle eye for a specific troll & after only a few posts she'd let us know 'you-know-who' is back. And 'you-know-who' came back ten times!
