Downright Nastiness
Started by: SoniaB (62) Report abuse
Is anyone else on this website disappointed and disillusioned with the sheer nastiness of comments by many people.I'm referring in particular to recent comments on a thread on General,about 'child poverty 'If you have to resort to such insults you shouldn't be posting.Also,some begin another post about their holidays !I despair.

SoniaB.... I see you are a new member. I am afraid if you stay around long enough you will find the majority of threads wind their way along the vile responses path. I was also shocked by the sheer vitriol of some replies when I first joined. There is stated in the rules.....no antagonising of members by members but this rule is ignored daily. Best to let it all pass by and enjoy whatever is left.

I totally agree Sonia,there's so much anger and backbiting..I tend to add
one comment then leave it at that..it just isn't worth it..there are some nasty
people on this site lately.

SoniaB,
It is possibly really difficult to say how many people on this website are disappointed and disillusioned, but it can certainly be said, that many have either left this site or no longer contribute.
In comparison to earlier years, it can be easily noticed that the contributions of today are far less than those of earlier times.
As for myself, I am sorry to say, I am no longer greatly motivated by this site and I rarely contribute.

SoniaB if you do not like a posting click on the yellow triangle and report it. If you report the member enough times either their comments will be removed(pickfords) or they could be made inactive

Wigan Rejects site will not allow bad comments. Lots of good folk around there.

Posted by: momac (9046)  Report abuse
It's a good site...like Fred says you aren't allowed to be nasty there.

Posted by: SoniaB (62) Report abuse
Thanks so much for your replies.I will have a look at Wigan Rejects too.

Yes the post lost it a little but people have memories. Sonia has only been a member a while and won't know the history between posters. What Sonia contributed was only a similar comment. The woman she knows who spent on an I pad could have had it given to her by her parents or a relative to buy her child a Christmas gift. We will never know. I spent 30+ years in the construction industry and the discussion was tame in comparison to what I heard almost very day. It merely reflected life, maybe not at it's best, but it was typical.

No Broady,I know about the iPad because a member of her family happened to tell me.Also what has 'tame to what I heard in the construction industry' got to do with it???Get over yourself


Posted by: broady (13564)   Report abuse
Plenty. It is called life. Vile in my book is cruelty to children, cruelty to animals, sexual exploitation etc. The discussion was an exchange of views in cyber space. No harm done to anyone. If you don't like it don't read it. As for getting over myself proof to me is more than he said, she said etc. As PeterP said you can always run to the moderators and report it.

Posted by: SoniaB (62) Report abuse
The trouble with you Broady is you can't stand anyone disagreeing with you,even if you are proved wrong.Get on with your insular little 'life' and carry on being deluded.

Posted by: broady (13564)   Report abuse
After 27 posts you have summed me up to perfection. Well done.

Unless you are the one who started it up when he got slung off here

BB, Would you agree that once you are removed from here you should stay removed and not be allowed to return using another name??

Posted by: nanajacqui (1591)  Report abuse
Also "some people" are not welcome on rejects even though they've tried to join,they are not wanted

Posted by: SoniaB (62) Report abuse
Yes Brpady, I take your point of the horrible things in this life that you list.However, I still believe that trying to compare this website to what is acceptable on a building site a stupid comparison.

Posted by: broady (13564)   Report abuse
I suggest we agree to differ.

Posted by: SoniaB (62) Report abuse
Yes Broady,that's probably best.

Posted by: basil brush (10144) Report abuse
I agree Sonia, nothing like it, it's the same people who go around, in a pack, attacking people and spoiling the site, it's disgusting

Posted by: broady (13564)   Report abuse
BB, You seem to have forgotten to reply to my question to you yesterday. Are you going to answer???

Posted by: basil brush (10144) Report abuse
They follow each other around....like sheep.

Posted by: broady (13564)   Report abuse
The question was posted at 16.31 yesterday in case you missed it.

Posted by: basil brush (10144) Report abuse
Boredy please do all us decent posters a favour and go and plead with Mac on WR to let you back on.....go on.... please.

Posted by: broady (13564)   Report abuse
So no answer. I wonder why?

Posted by: basil brush (10144) Report abuse
I hope Sonia's reading this as this mon is always having a go at folk and spoiling threads

Posted by: SoniaB (62) Report abuse
Yes BB,I can see what you mean.I get the impression several on here aren't happy with themselves so attempt to make others feel less than good.

Posted by: ianp. (429)  Report abuse
SoniaB,
You possibly could be right!
Infliction and torment occurs in so many places and in so many ways. It is all too safe and easy to hide behind a computer with the feeling of having the right to choose the words one wishes.

Posted by: broady (13564)   Report abuse
SoniaB,
Ask you new mate B.B. why he has been banned from this site at least four times and returned under a different name. By the way just post and stop trying to be Freud. You know nothing about 99% of people on here.

Posted by: nanajacqui (1591)  Report abuse
Bill I'm glad you've asked our new member (or is she ?)that question because I was about to,talk about jump in with both feet beggars belief.Been here before I suspect.

Posted by: SoniaB (62) Report abuse
YES,as usual you are both wrong Boredy and NAnna,I am a relatively newcomer to here. Also I have no idea who BB is , all I know you both just make it plainly obvious you can't stand being disagreed with.

Posted by: nanajacqui (1591)  Report abuse
What prove have you of that ? Please tell me

Posted by: SoniaB (62) Report abuse
Look at your own comments, they should tell you.

Posted by: broady (13564)   Report abuse
BB is Basil Brush. His other names have included (but are not limited to) Walshy,Snakeeyes and Goose. All regulars no that.

Posted by: basil brush (10144) Report abuse
Well said, SoniaB, they don't like anybody who stands up to them, that's why they do around in a pack, I'm suprised the other 2 sheep have not joined in.

Posted by: broady (13564)   Report abuse
Still no answer to the question. Grow a pair and answer for your self. Incidentally Walshy sheep go around in flocks not packs. No what I mean.

Posted by: basil brush (10144) Report abuse
Cowards go round in packs

Have you had a look yet, Sonia?

Posted by: broady (13564)   Report abuse
LL,
Have you any idea when I am allowed back in?? 😂😂😂😂

Posted by: lectriclegs (3313) Report abuse

Posted by: basil brush (10144) Report abuse
Depends how much grovelling you do to mac,boredy, you getting back on there can't happen quick enough for us decent posters.

Soniab, I believe you have to be a "yes sir, no sir, person on there because if you stand up for yourself you get banned, better off on here, Wigans no1 site.

Posted by: basil brush (10144) Report abuse
Nastiness, look on the amberswood thread if you want to see nastiness and how such a serious thread as been ruined by some nasty folk.

Posted by: blackrodweaver (518) Report abuse
