    Is there an email or PM that goes to all moderators? If not, then this forum is the best way to get that information to them.

    Last night a troll was attacking me and webjockey took care of it immediately. I did not even know she was a mod until she took care of it. If I had just PMed Gretchen directly, it may not have been caught so swiftly.

    excellent idea, T!

    one email address - like [email protected] - where such complaints could go.

    a cute poem I found about trolls:

    .
    Those trolls are pretty hungry
    Just chomping at the bit
    To have their childish tantrums
    And throw their little fits
    Don't feed into the drama
    Keep your comments to yourself
    Bottle up your anger
    And please put it on a shelf
    For if you heed my warning
    They may just go away
    Killing them with kindness
    Will keep those trolls at bay
    I know we are all guilty
    Of giving them a snack
    Just be careful what you feed them
    They're liable to attack!
    hello.world.

    Maybe Gretchen could add a "Report This Post" button at the bottom of every post. I've seen those on other boards and the complaint is sent to every mod/admin.

    at the top of every thread, there is a little envelope with the phrase UBB Friend: email this page to someone!

    this is a most effective way (for now ) to alert the mods about shady situations.


    Thanks!

    icon_biggrin.gif I'm sorry, Webbie, baby, but that had me giggling. That poem is SOOOO not you, my urbane, cool, and sophisticated (well...sometimes, anyway) friend. icon_wink.gif

    But I agree with the sentiment of this thread. If you ignore the trolls they will soon tire of us and go away. And it's a heckuva lot less frustrating for everyone involved! icon_smile.gif

    Good idea, naturalT, about the one email to all mods. I'll see what I can figure out.
    i think I can just have my emailer fwd to a list any email that comes into say, [email protected] or somesuch.

    Thanks again for the great idea!
