Editorial: ABUSE ALERT! Member's are abusing 'ABUSE ALERT'!
The Abuse Alert system is meant to be used to police the site by members.
Unfortunately members are betraying the intent of this system.
I've done a little research. I've examined 'The Hall of Shame' for the past two days and discovered many who are reporting other's with an 'Abuse Alert' aren't contributing. I've dug into thread post history ,as well as article's contributed and found very little to nothing offered by the member's reporting other member's as deserving an 'Abuse Alert'.
Now if these member's were actively posting comments on the threads or offering editorials or FanFic contributions regularly for example, I wouldn't be so suspicious, but that's not the case.
In some instances, I couldn't find ANY comments posted from these members!
I did find a few contributions from some, but most were weeks or months old.
What does this tell me?
There are member's here who simply troll this site , find comments or other member's they don't like , and maliciously tag them with a 'Abuse Alert' badge.
Some of these member's I've never even SEEN ONCE post ANYTHING at all!
I don't recognize their avatar or screen name.
They seem intent on imposing their own brand of policing on this site without the concern of repercussion...or even offering a comment on the threads!
I've seen the most petty and unoffensive things tagged --- it actually made me feel sorry for the poster of the thread.
This is getting out of hand.
Obviously these members are getting their "jollies" tagging other members for whatever warped reason, and it's got to stop.
I VERY RARELY get tagged , so this isn't a big deal with me personally, but when I am , I'd like to know why.
There were times when it was warranted, and times it's just a jealous jerk with an agenda .
So whoever you all are, please stop.
I'm sure your life has more value and worth than to sink to the level of 'troll'.
Get a hobby...or actively contribute to the site , just don't tag members with 'Alert' badges , look in the mirror and declare yourself some righteous internet crusader.
It's pathetic and you're pathetic.
