All It Takes is One Bad Apple !

Feedback

I posted a deal earlier and it seems some idiot thinks it’s a great idea to create a new account and troll certain threads and at least the deal I posted maybe others with the same comment over and over again trying to be a robot or something !!!! All it takes is one bad apple !!! For goodness sake try and act like a grown up and stop trying to ruin things for everyone else !!!!

What do you think of this?

I think maybe this site is now being a victim to its own success. More people equals more problems. Back when I was online 20 years ago plus we didn't have trolls, spam, malware, etc. Interacting online was great back then.

I just don’t get the thinking that goes on in some people’s minds I really don’t ! What do they actually get out of it ??? You’ve got to feel sorry for these people really. Perhaps that’s what they crave.... pity ?! Who knows.

I have sent you a message through the contact form. I’ve muted the person in question so cant see his comments but it’s the person who wrongly said you had robots working for you Tom.

nipperjwb I've seen what you were obviously referring to, I had my first ever offer heavily trolled saying it was "open to fraud" etc. (same name without the number).

If by chance you don't know how to tag Tom (or anyone else) you just put a @ directly before the name of the person you're tagging - I wish I'd known that at the time.

The @ won't show up it just turns the name into a tag - like this nipperjwb

nipperjwb I had the one without the number muted - it was a total waste of time. All it did was make me think he'd removed his "trolling" comment.

It might be an idea if any person found posting through a proxy server was banned (it's easy enough to check) - why should any person need to do that? (I'll answer my own question... multiple accounts!).
