    .... before you go in full throttle and hammer in on someone (gang up). You should consider the possibility that the victim of your abuse and "nights entertainment" could suffer from an anxiety/stress problem. Perhaps already struggling to cope with life, and the mocking, making up of lies could quite possibly push them over the edge.

    Please think before mocking someone on mass. :(

    Especially get the facts straight, before jumping on the bandwagon.

    No mods about, even though I have even vm'd one. So resorted to posting this thread.

    There's a reason that there's a button labelled 'log out' of forums like these. If something's bothering you that much I'd advise using it.

    Too many to report them all. I have messaged a mod, but no reply so far.

    Mods maybe thin on the ground due to bank hol weekend. But so long as they are aware there should be some sort of investigation!

    It always seems to be the ones that do the loudest moaning, are the ones that are found to be full of crap in my experience...

    I'm not suggesting that anyone should be forced to leave the forums, and I'm not condoning bullying. Just pointing out that if something on the forums is causing you to feel stressed/anxious then it's time to hit the off button for a while.

    The mod that people call Lynn has messaged me back now, and told me to report all the posts on the thread. That is gonna take me ages..... I thought pointing out the thread would be enough.

    She probably doesn't have time to read through pages and pages of a thread to find specific posts... just report the posts and it should get sorted

    I agree with what you say, and I will. But the anxiety of it all makes me want to defend myself, and try to put my side forward against the person lying about me. Sorry. If I say nothing she wins, and everybody believes her. I have tried to ignore her all day, but she keeps in at me.

    As I said to the mod, I am sitting here shaking and in tears. It is not a nice feeling. I don't want to go back to that thread to report all the posts to be honest. Too upsetting.

    I'm sure the mods are privy to information we are not, & they will come to the right decision about whatever's gone on (sorry, I'm still pretty much in the dark about the actual issue).

    Unfortunately some people are very quick to jump on others without giving them a chance. You see it over and over on here. Certain members seem to just want to find the worst in others and slate them for it. If I don't believe something I am reading I just ignore it and don't add fuel to the fire

    Tonytibbs I believe I am already aware of thread you mean. As I have told you the whole matter is under investigation.
    Please be aware that this is a bank holiday and mods have lives as much as anyone else. It will be dealt with as quickly and fairly as possible but you have to bear us.
    And be thankful that my cat just walked across my keyboard and deleted my original comments which were no where near as temperate
