For the warnings, the PM's etc...I lost my server about 5:00 p.m. and just got online when the alerts hit. Gaye and I worked quickly to clear the board as fast as possible-

Just wanted to let you know we appreciate your keeping it to reportings only and not making it a major issue on the boards. Don't give them any more satisfaction from this-


Thanks!

Thanks MA and Gaye for getting everything off so quickly!

And thank you Sandra and Steph for replying to the PMs so quickly! I don't think everyone would have stayed so calm without you!

I would also want to give thanks to Ryan (hydroaxe) for first letting me know that there were trolls afoot.

Yep, we did good. No one panicked. Only two threads were started to give the trolls a little teeny satisfaction, and hardly any responses to those. Good job guys!

Thanks to Hydroaxe and ash bct for your quick responses to my PM's. It was appreciated.

I'm sorry I was one of the ones to start a thread like that and won't for the future - I know all about trolls and their satisfaction, I just felt like the members here deserved a warning because of the extreme nature of the content.

Thats okay Amy... Now You know and knowing is half the battle. I think one of the pics was the same one that some trolls used on us last month

I understand, Amy. But trolls post extreme content simply to get attention. They want their names and the content talked about, so the content is almost always extreme for that very reason.

Please don't take my previous comment wrong. I AM proud of everyone. Your heart was in the right place.

One thing we all can do is PM one another as well as PM'ing the mods. That way we can give each other a private warning and block the spammers user ID's.

Peace,
mrsd

In the upper right hand corner of each and every post here is a little red triangle with an exclaimation point in it ... this is the Report Post Function. It will alert all Mods of the problem at once and those who are online can get here fast.

Well, I seem to have been whilst this one happened - but I will pass my thanks to the mods nonetheless - I remember how much work it caused for you last time. Well done

They make me sick!

I know i hit the alert button in the SOS forum yesterday after someone put their first post on in the shooting of the cats in Wisconsin thread, who said they would shoot a cat if it wandered into their property without a collar

Thank you Mods for taking those off You are all MY HEROS
post #19 of 29
Thank YOU, MA and all the mods. This is what makes TCS the BEST site there is!!!

I wasn't online when it happened this time so I'm curious. There were a couple of threads in the Lounge I subscribed to yesterday that are no longer available. Were they deleted because of trolls?

What happened? I missed it.

I missed it too but I am assuming that it's something similar to what happened a couple of months ago.

Anyway, way to go mods.

Mods for responding so fast to what happened. Even though it was kinda odd to go to one of my threads only to be told that I couldn't. Oh well!! On to another thread.
post #25 of 29
I'm SO glad that I wasn't online this time during the troll invasion. Last time was enough to scar me for life! haha! I feel bad for anyone who had to see the pictures they posted, as I am sure they were a lot like last time's.

Way to go Mods and everyone who reported them!!!

You weren't the only one. When I saw my inbox, this afternoon, I knew that it had happened again.

Thank goodness for Gaye and Hissy. Do you gals ever sleep?

I want to send out a special thanks to Amy DHH and clixpix. They reported the majority of the posts. And, as Amy stated in one of the posts she reported.....that feature is the quickest and easiest way for the moderators to get to the offensive posts, as one click from the email we receive takes us right to them without searching. Good work, folks!

You're very welcome! That actually brings up a question I had. I found the first one in Crossing the Bridge, and reported it. When I went to the Cat Lounge, I found many, many more. I had started reporting them, but realized they were from the same two usernames. What is more helpful: keep searching and reporting each post individually, or report the poster names, and not flood you with numerous alerts?

If you report the individual threads that is the most helpful. Most of them find popular threads and tag the ends of them. This type of mass invasion was actually done by one person who registered under multiple names.
