    Nobody's breaking the rules. But this person is obviously getting the attention they want from the thread, so it's just as much the fault of the people that are giving the attention as the person who's begging for it.

    Exactly. Making threads like this and creating unnecessary drama will only fuel what you're trying to extinguish.

    JediMaster22, have you brought your concerns to the individual in question? Have you brought these concerns to any other mod who may be able to help as a third party with the potential of working things out before starting a Comms thread? Or has this behaviour continued without a heads up from anyone be it a post or PM and the first course of action was a Comms thread?

    I think the best way to handle these things is to ignore the user's posts and threads. Such user's are attention seekers. Deny them the attention they are craving, and they will go away. The fact of the matter is is that these types of users are not violating the TOS. It is not against the rules to be annoying attention craver. We as a community are better off ignoring these users then engaging in flame and bait wars. This only feeds them the attention that they desire. Our best course is to completely ignore these annoying users. If we ignore, then their threads will sink and they will either change their posting habits or stop posting all together. The power is in our hands on this one.

    I don't think anyone will mention any names, however if you see yourself in the descriptions posted here, that's something to think about. Saying no names is actually a good thing, because it keeps everyone wondering "is it me?" and makes them examine their posting style to see if they fit the profile.

    It's interesting that you say that, comet, since JM22 says his unnamed person is lying. Does that mean that you're admitting that you've been lying?

    im not reffering to his posts , but some other posts .



    they continue posting they (for example) are underage and having sex with their underage girlfriend.

    That gave it away .

    There are plenty of posts that talk about underage people having sex with underage people.

    My earlier comment still stands. If you see yourself in the posting patterns described, that's something to think about. If you don't, then tis all good :)

    No names need to be mentioned - that's not the point of this thread.

    It will be easier to resolve this if you state the user and not just the behavior .

    Ok, Comet you post this about me the other night..

    "her comments werent bad enough for a ban , therefore I continued to see If I could push her over the edge .

    I am a baiting professional"



    Perhaps the mods should take a tougher stance on people that are openly, and intentionally baiting other users for the sole purpose of getting them banned?

    What I find really funny is that not one persons name was mentioned, but the mods that have responded said they know who this thread is in refrence too. Obviously this is a problem.

    That particular comment was noted and the situation was dealt with.

    Let me make it clear that baiting is an offense we take seriously, and we will ban anyone who attempts to bait someone into saying something nasty. I urge you to take the higher ground and PM any mod with a link to the comment. They'll get banned, and you'll have peace and quiet in which ever forum you frequent.

    "I urge you to take the higher ground and PM any mod with a link to the comment. They'll get banned, and you'll have peace and quiet in which ever forum you frequent.

    Which is all good and well Malkie, but I haven't seen that enforced on this user yet.

    I did PM a mod over the comment above, as well as Pming a different mod when Comet made a violent threat to another user in the JC. He recieved a banning for neither offense.

    It's actually NOT you comet :), and the reason for my absence in responding is because I get the attitude that nothing can be done about this, so nothing else I say can matter right?

    And besides trying to be nice, I don't name the person's name because I don't want to give this specific person any more attention.

    It's NOT about personal business, it's about fixing the problem as A WHOLE!

    Comet: as I said, the person I orginally talk about is NOT you, but if you think I been talking about you, then you are admitting you fall under the "I am trying to self-promote and telling lies to get the attention" group I am talking about?

    What's the 'liar' smiley for, k3po? :confused:


    I was under the impression the knowingly false clause of the TOS was more pertaining to spoilers than anything else, not the random nonsense in the JCC.


    No, I think it applies to JCC, and every board on here.

    I think that lying to gain yourself popularity is the WORST topics ever...

    It's just a matter of proofing what this person says is lie or fact.

    If proven, then this person should get a ban.

    If not, unfortunately, I don't know what can be done... and that's the purpose of THIS thread!

    I like the idea of ignoring this person, but you know sometimes I ignore, others don't!

    Well said. Unfortunately, names have been mentioned now, and this thread threatens to turn into an argument between the acuser and the acusee. Still, we should all "examine our posting styles." We all break rules periodically, and by scrutinizing ourselves first, we may be able to post in a more respectful manner.

    I mean, Popular in terms of your thread get a tons of replies, not necessarily that people will like you.


    >names have been mentioned now, and this thread threatens to turn into an argument between the acuser and the acusee<

    Ummm, no one (especially NOT me) have named names. It was Comet who asked "is it me".

    But, I just told you guys, it WASN'T him. However, if he clearly feel he is in the same group I refer to, then he should definately consider better posting habits. :)

    Oh, ignore it if you must, but i'm cirtain we all know perfectly well who this individual is. Now under the circumstances, the mods here have to protect this individual to a cirtain extent.

    Strange. About 2 years ago i made a cirtain thread in the JCC just messing around. I was hoping it would turn into sort of a drooling fan club but instead i got a month long slap on the wrist and yet this individual can keep multiple threads open where the lie is apparant. Hmmm. Let me think...it seems a little strange that a regular user would get banned for it while this fella gets away with it. [face_plain]

    well if its not me , then I have no possible clue as to who it could be . could someone pm me or something ? . the only way this is going to be resolved is if the user knows that this is about him/her so he/she can see how people feel about him/her and his/her behavior . otherwise this thread will accomplish nothing because in the end the person at fault wont know this about him/her and will be unaware that everyone wants him/her to change . so basically you can complain for 30 pages but when your done you will still be where you were when you started .
