FLAMING

It has come to my attention that recently an author deleted all their stories, because they had received harassing/flaming reviews from another member.

Flaming is absolutely NOT tolerated on this site. Constructive critiscism is fine, as long as it is done in a polite and respectful manner, but if you see the author is getting upset, then please back off.

Any member who harrasses an author and posts hurftul and rude reviews, will be immediately banned from the site. Anonymous reviews will be turned off as well, if it becomes an issue as well.

Also, any member who is being harrased by a reviewer, is encouraged to report it to the admins. Please don't hesitate to do so.

I am very upset that a talented author has removed their stories and endured this type of harassment, without knowing about it. So sorry for this.

Thank you,

P.S. These same rules apply to the chatroom. Please treat the authors as if they are present If you see an issue or are experiencing one yourself, please don't hesistate to contact one of us directly.

That is terrible!!! Was it a new member? Maybe we can ban their IP number too.

I just happened to see something going on in 'Action Log', but couldn't find the member on the list, so I assumed it was an 'Anon' or they left afterwards.

That's awful. I hate that someone felt they had to leave the site because of bullying.

And, undoubtedly, the bully is an "anonymous" coward...

I'm so glad you put a message about it. When I first came onto this site, i kept getting flamed by this one person, on every single one of my stories. She stopped after I kept telling Jan. It is very terrible that the author deleted their stories. I hope they come back

That author wrote really good stories... I really hope he comes back! I wanna know what happens!

This is exactly why I deleted my stories off here. Maybe, one day I'll post my stories back on this site.

If you ignore a flame and don't answer it at all they are likely to leave you alone after that. They might post a couple more reviews but they are likely to move on to someone else. A flamer isn't speaking truth, they are suffering and trying to make someone else feel as bad as them. If they get a response that they succeeded, they keep going. At least that's my take on them. I just delete and ignore.

Do you think we can turn on anon reviews now?
