I have been wondering the same thing for the last week - I've looked on many threads for her. I am aware that there was another member that made her feel very uncomfortable and hurt. She did threaten to leave but I was hoping that she would reconsider. I think its worth tagging her just to get an update. davidstockport you share regular chats - any news? Lynibis How you doing? x (I hope I'm correct but I think I've been given a sign that she is OK) We will have to be patient.

I haven't been in touch with Lyn for some time, she was when I first contacted her being subjected to online bullying, as soon as she blocked one another (obviously the same person using another name) would take over. I had been suffering the same harassment (as some might remember).

Two of my antagonists (one of whom was probably a man posing as a woman) stopped posting deals on the exact same day in February. That was perhaps a coincidence, another two who after almost a year of not having profile pictures - uploaded pictures (unlikely to be genuine) within a matter of minutes of each other.

I might mention that when I posted a non important email address so Lyn could contact me during a previous time she was being harassed (I wanted to help) within minutes someone was attempting to hack into that email account via a proxy server- I was alerted because the hacker was using a proxy server ( via Austria - but on USA time) and this rang the alarm bells - I am guessing it was the very same person who less than ten minutes before me revealing an email address was boasting how he could use proxy servers to use more than one name on this forum. Far too many coincidences for my liking.

I am a regular YouTuber and so know how to deal with trolls - they're usually just a bunch of snivelling inadequate COWARDS who feel safe behind their keyboards and should crawl back under the stones they crawled from under.

davidstockport Thanks for the update - really appreciate you taking the time. Words fail me - I truly cannot understand why people want to upset in this way. As you say, the anonymity makes them feel safe to bully.

davidstockport oh wow, I didn't know it was that bad. I thought it may have had something to do with the new zealand post the other day! she made a comment (which she clearly didn't mean anything bad by) and another member took it quite badly.

Why people would go out there way, having to hide behind a screen just to bully someone, I will never know.. Probably had no attention from their parents growing up that they crave for it online! 😑

Hope she's ok though.

LittleLisaMarie The trolls will look for anything that can perhaps be taken another way and POUNCE on it.

They are just inadequate INDIVIDUALS but feel more adequate if they hide behind SEVERAL names.

It's possible that many online Trolls (bullies) are themselves bullied in real life.

I think she is taking a break after being hurt by another member. But I also hope she is ok as I enjoyed her chat threads and engaging with her.

I did see a Topic from Lyn saying it would be her last posting on here. Quote "So in view of this, this is my last ever post on LD and I will no longer be posting deals or comps either". I had to go out and as I had nothing to add to what had been said - didn't add to the thread.

I have just found the topic https://www.latestdeals.co.uk/chat/generation-gap it does appear that it might just be a break Lyn is now taking.

davidstockport I trawled backwards myself just to re-read the post so I agree she is probably taking a break - fingers crossed. This is the one occasion when I wish I could have made contact on fb but I know for a fact she is no longer on that platform. I am sure she will look in every so often and read the posts.

angemski I don't have anything to do with posting on FaceBook - I consider any site that requests the password to email accounts a security risk, from what I gather Trolls use FB too, it's a pity there isn't some safe way that people on sites such as this who wish to communicate privately can do so.

angemski The only safe way I can think of is to create a new email address... they're usually free - then post it openly when email contact has been made, and another email account is decided on, that email account can be abandoned. BUT NEVER openly reveal an email address that has any sensitive things (Banking etc) associated with it. I have over seven email addresses only about three of them are in regular use, and anyone hacking into any other than my main account would be very disappointed.

angemski I might add you could when contact has been made go back to the post on which you had revealed your email address and remove it by editing. I did this (when I contacted Lyn - she still had the choice whether to contact me) but as the Troll who had been involved with the thread had obviously seen it before I had chance to remove it... so the attempted and futile hack began. I have very good security on all my email accounts and was informed within seconds by email, phone call and text.

What's he got!... just proof he isn't as invisible (or as clever) as he thinks he is,

Thanks for the update guys. I hope she's just taking a break too. Sorry about your horrible experiences davidstockport.

I'm glad that there are a lot of other people who were friendly with her. I haven't been here long but I enjoyed talking to her and obviously missed her posts and chat when she's not here.

Maybe we can post some nice things for her to read when she gets back?

Lynibis - We missed u when you were on your break! Come back and tell stories and start good topics again! I don't know you that well but I hope I can get to know the regular members more! 🙂 Hope you're taking good care of yourself! x

GlitchHunter I agree - a great chat member - always creates a topic that most of us have opinions on so we want to get involved - always comes back to the thread regularly to reply (many put their topics up and that's the end of their involvement) and always willing to help.

GlitchHunter I have noticed that I and many others tend to ignore the topics started by those who are known to ask questions or start topics that they've absolutely no interest in. It is in my opinion almost rude to ask a question then ignore any answers. It takes some time to know who those posters are though.

Hi Everyone, I really don't know what to say. I can only say thank you for your concern and lovely comments. I must admit I have still been keeping an eye on things but not over the weekend as I seemed to be very busy and had guests, including a house guest who is here for the interim.

On my last topic post I did think I wouldn't make any more comments but probably just needed to go away and 'lick my wounds for a while'. I also felt I had been spending far too much of my time on here (very addictive) and was neglecting other things like housework and garden which has to fit around work. However, Johnny's post (in reply to Generation Gap) made me realise I just needed a bit of a break and I was so shocked (in a lovely way) to see this topic last night and realised how many friends I had made on here and how much I missed chatting to you all.

So, I look forward to more chats and hope you have all been keeping well and enjoying the fine weather, in some parts of the country.

Thanks again for being so lovely, just proves you don't need to see people 'in the flesh' to be friends and you have all taught me a much needed lesson in humility and concern for others. 🌻 💐 to you all x.

The mute button only stops you seeing the posts by the person you've muted, it doesn't stop others responding to them in a way that you can guess what they're saying. In my opinion it's best to see what they're saying and try to ignore it. Lyn knows how little use the mute button is in stopping them. I can't mention by name one troll who was targeting Lyn - I can however see his/her profile has GONE (no longer a member) - I've no way of knowing if he/she was pushed or jumped.😀

angemski The mute only really stops you seeing any TOPIC started by the person you've blocked, but it's too obvious they're posting on other topics (you see that the topic has perhaps 5 replies - but when you go to it there are only 3 there). I don't think I'm breaking any confidences in saying that Lyn and myself had independly worked out which screen names were the same person, before we made contact.

We'd also noticed that one "very indignant female" was, because of things s/he said was "male" and we guessed who that "male" was and his other names.😀

Note I use the word MALE I can't bring myself to calling any snivelling, cowardly, troll who targets females in the way he's done a MAN.

angemski I worked out a way that might help (others might not realise you can't see their icon anywhere to go to their profile to UNMUTE them) If you copy this into address bar https://www.latestdeals.co.uk/@ and type their screen name after it (no spaces) - you will go to their profile.

If you've forgotten the exact name - I'll try to help.😀

angemskiBecause you have muted them all their posts disappeared so no icons to click to their profile. If you remember the start of their names it might "auto suggest" as you type their name in with that address I gave.
