Sour, Unpleasant People

Other

Isn't it amazing how crisis brings out the worst and best of people? There is someone who has been a member for 2 years and profile shows not one single contribution.....comments, deals, comps, hearts given etc. But today has decided to make 2 unpleasant comments on deals I have posted.

I have posted loads of online courses that people may like to do during lockdown but obviously not to his taste!

Ignore them Lynibis. They might be venting at you for something else going on in his life. I know that is not an excuse, it costs nothing to be polite and pleasant.

Occasionally I look at the things 'new members' have posted, especially if it a name that I don't know. Sadly I don't find it that surprising how many are prepared to make uncharitable comments without making any positive contribution at all. Don't take it to heart Lynibis we all know how good you are. πŸ’ 🐞

I had answered your comment tumblespots but for some reason it has been deleted. I just said thanks and that I found it a bit creepy that the only comments he has ever made have all been directed at me.......weird. On a lighter note have just realised that the word weird is one of the few that breaks the rule of i before e except after c!!!

The problem with mentioning this is that many of us will go and have a look. πŸ˜‚ Clearly taking their grumpiness out on you and totally unnecessary. I've been shocked by unkind comments all over the place so clearly some people aren't coping. Report it! (I know you'd rather ignore x)

I agree, one of those things you regret as soon as you have typed but as I am isolated alone I didn't have anyone else to complain to lol. None of my friends and family are on LD for some unexplainable reason. I am known amongst them all as being able to talk for Britain so I imagine when I finally emerge from lockdown I will have a sore throat at end of first day and think I have got you know what.

Lynibis Sometimes it's really necessary to highlight someone's unkindness. I know this is tempting fate but I've only had one and that was from a totally non participating member. I sucked it up and politely told them I looked forward their very first contribution....... On the other issue - as long as you tag there are many of us willing to chat. x

I've just read the comments on your deals. I don't get why some people feel the need to comment on certain things. If the deal isn't for you then just scroll past, no need to put sarcastic and rude comments. Ignore them, plenty of people on here appreciate your contributions.

Caz2 I have little doubt he has posted under different names before - there were many others (who attacked Lyn's postings) who joined within a few weeks of each other (in March/April 2018). There was one who used several screen names - on one of which he pretended to be a very indignant female. Most have a thing in common they claim to be "computer experts" and know how to avoid detection.

davidstockport Normally I would agree but there seems to be an element of bullying that appears to thrive when others are upset by the name calling and repetitive vocabulary. The most pathetic excuse is that the rest of us don't get their humour. It feels good to starve a fire of oxygen. People who flock with the sheep will, no doubt, be entertained but the majority won't judge a member who clearly doesn't warrant the cruel jibes by a Walter Mitty character.

angemski Accusing a person of a CRIME (if it isn't true) isn't NAME CALLING. Nor is threatening to "put a person in hospital". You might have missed many things that were removed.

I perhaps know how Lyn feels - this isn't the first time she has been targetted by people who have been lying dormant or obviously created another account to harass her. This is tame compared to some other things - this most recent is where it's unlikely to come to the attention of those on "Chat". I had similar from trolls (well possibly the same person) on the first deal I ever posted.

davidstockport David I am still not getting your tag! I've checked my settings and there is a gremlin out there that doesn't want us to talk to each other. πŸ˜† It's true I did opt out for a few days as somebody was getting their jollies by completely bombarding the chat section. I'm sorry that you've had to put up with this rubbish too. I wrongly thought that the team kept a watchful eye on things and was patiently waiting for it to be locked down. Won't make that mistake again! I think that we should agree to report immediately if it happens again or, at the very least, tag a friend to help deal with it.

angemski I have seen some of the comments that davidstockport is talking about and I was shocked when I read them. Couldn't believe someone was speaking to him like that. We definitely need to report comments like these or as you say tag a friend to help deal with the situation. It is such a shame that people use sites like this to troll other people and to bully them.

MrsCraig I can't believe he was allowed to get away with it for so long and also that someone who had said she had mental health & weight problems was taken in by him (probably still is) and another (perhaps the same person) effectively grooming her, didn't she try saying the name of one "out loud" to see it was a name obviously created to mock her weight. The date that account was created 27/2/20 probably indicates it was no accident, that name came on the scene. First thing HJ did was attack one of my posts (from about three weeks earlier).
