Skip to comments.Repeatedly submitting abuse reports when you disagree
Posted on 11/04/2004 9:08:17 AM PST by Admin Moderator
Over the past hour or so, there have been individuals who have hit abuse dozens upon dozens of times, sometimes for the very same thing they had previously hit abuse on.
Please do not do this. It is highly annoying.
I am aware that there are about 10 threads on Arafat dying. I made the decision that I was not going to pull all of them. I did not want to lose the first few comments made on them, and besides, the explosion of threads on FR when something big happens is somewhat of a tradition. I'll be pulling new threads, at least the new ones that do not have actual real articles associated, but the ones that were up will remain up.
If you don't agree with this policy, I am sorry and I did hear your complaints. If Jim wants the approach taken changed, he'll let us know. But one person hitting abuse 5 or 6 times on the same thread saying "duplicate, please pull" is just being a pest.
Also, about the CBS/not-dead thread. If CBS is reporting that, it is news regardless of if CBS has the story right or wrong. If they have it right, then it is news about Arafat. If they have it wrong, then it is news about CBS. Either way, I am not taking that thread down. Besides, it was a missed opportunity when the abuse report came in "He's dead." The correct abuse report should have been, "He's dead, Jim."
I hit the abuse button for the double post
I'm new here but having had a good thread pulled and restored, and a bad thread (CNN's Election coverage) pulled, you people are doing an exceptional job.
And I'm hitting "Abuse" to report your abuse of the "Abuse" button.
That's why you have a "back" button on your browser.
LOL! We gotta keep a sense of humor around here.
What happens if I hit the abuse button on my own post?
And why do I keep following myself around?
This is terrible.
What do I do?
ROFL - you ***ROCK***
THIS THREADS OUT OF ORDER!
THIS WHOLE BOARD IS OUT OF ORDER!
I voted to hit the abuse button before I voted against it.
I am one of the ones who hit the abuse link. If there are multiple threads on the same subject, then the threads lose focus and posters may miss valuable information. I understand your frustration and respect your decision but think that server performance and keeping the discussion focused should be factored into the decision.
It also would help if people would just look in the Breaking News sidebar or do a search before they post a thread. Many Freepers want to be able to look at the Breaking News sidebar to see what truly is going on in the world.
Mr Barnard: WHAT DO YOU WANT?
Man: Well, I was told outside that...
Mr Barnard: Don't give me that, you snotty-faced heap of parrot droppings!
Mr Barnard: Shut your festering gob, you tit! Your type really makes me puke, you vacuous, coffee-nosed, malodorous pervert!!!
Man: Look, I CAME HERE FOR AN ARGUMENT, I'm not going to just stand...!!
Mr Barnard: OH, oh I'm sorry, but this is abuse.
Man: Oh, I see, well, that explains it.
Mr Barnard: Ah yes, you want room 12A, Just along the corridor.
Man: Oh, Thank you very much. Sorry.
Mr Barnard: Not at all.
Man: Thank You. (Under his breath) Stupid git!!
I think we all know what self-abuse leads to.
Now I have a headache.....
