    Public service announcement to mods

    If my coworker who has never posted on TGR and likely never even heard of it is posted here again I'm emailing TGR again.

    That alias better be banned. It is against the rules to dox, and its completely uncalled for to bully an innocent person to try to get at me.

    You don't get to harass innocent people because someone disagrees with you on the internet.

    Serial, that alias and its owner should have been banned the first time they posted the work place, first and last name and picture of my coworker suggesting it was me. They were allowed to do it 3 times.

    Just an FYI. Mods are humans who have a life. Not reading the board every second of every day, and even when reading, are usually reading as users, not mods.

    The first time it was posted, a few of you were bitching and moaning in the thread. Buttflake even specifically calling me out for not deleting a thread I hadn't even seen.

    Then someone reported it, report was seen by mods, and it was deleted. Since then I guess it's been reposted, and been deleted. Because someone reported it. Deleting posts is one thing, banning users isn't within the power of all the mods so there usually has to be some discussion and then the person with the powers will ban.

    Which is all a way of saying Jesus fuck, do you really think this thread is the right way to make your point? When the threads and posts have been deleted WHEN THEY HAVE BEEN REPORTED (and I might add, you didn't bother to report any of them). And it's been what, 3 or 4 hours since the first one was posted?

    I pm'd you. The account in question is banned. It isn't an obvious alias, meaning there's not a plain IP match with another longer-standing user that I can see, having just gotten out of bed to come look at this. Doxxing is bannable. But please do remember, everyone, nobody gets paid to monitor this place. Moderation (and administration) here is volunteer, and nobody necessarily reads PR all night. I rarely read PR even in the winter when I am posting here daily. Report posts with detailed info.

    A few folks reported these posts; by the time I clicked any of them, the posts had been deleted. So somebody was awake and was trying to help. Please use the report post function, with a detailed message explaining what is going on, if you want someone to address your issue. Starting new PR threads lets the other currently active users know what's going on - if you want a mod/admin attention, report posts WITH DETAILED INFORMATION such as a full sentence explaining "a user with 11 posts is revealing personal information for another user: clear doxx, alias" etc as reasons like "this is fucked up" get reported all the time, for all sorts of reasons, including butthurtness in polyass, butthurtness in GS, etc etc etc

    And finally, please do continue to remember that anyone can read anything you post here and anyone can register here. Nobody on the mod/admin team has any control over that. The community widely wants low barrier to entry, minimal moderation, and it isn't the worst thing in the world to keep the most vulnerable parts of your personal life out of here.

    Fwiw, if an active mod hadn't emailed me, I would've assumed (since nobody reported anything else after the posts in question were deleted) that the situation was resolved. I didn't just get up from bed and stumble on this thread.

    I just got an email from the report you just sent on this thread which says "I cannot report posts" fwiw, so that functionality is working.

    Fuck off. Or I'll ban you. Oh, wait, I don't have ban powers. Fuck.

    I know. It seems to work but when I tried to report the dox post I wrote what it was and it said I wasnt allowed access to that feature

    If a coworker is harassing you, I'd suggest you go to your company's HR department and report them.

    It's possible someone had already deleted the post in between when you clicked "report" and when you submitted the report; this is the best guess I have. As far as I am aware, it is not possible to prevent a registered user from reporting posts.

    Fwiw, a mod emailing the other mods in response to a reported post worked. This thread had nothing to do with it, I am just responding here publicly, since I have already gotten out of bed to sit at my computer to tend to this situation, in the hopes that in the future people REPORT POSTS AND DO NOT MAKE NEW THREADS THINKING THAT SOMEONE WILL READ THEM.

    Wasn't banned because of this thread.

    I also want to take a bit of issue with the expectations some of you have around timelines. People livestream murders on Facebook sometimes and Facebook, a company worth over 72 billion dollars whose entire business is people posting on it, with a staff of thousands of paid moderators in every time zone operating 24/7, sometimes takes hours to respond. So 3 posts with 3 reports and a ~4 hour response time is not bad from < 10 volunteers for a small company (at which this forum is NOT the product) who all have full time jobs that arenít binge-reading the padded room.
