Jeeez! Who is running this joint?



Recommended Posts

I flagged someone as a spammer in error which deleted all her posts. Where do you see "posts reappearing but mangled..." please?

For the record, Babbs posts were restored. The reason this occurred in the first place was because some member who should know better didn't follow our rules and posted very inappropriate status updates. I've been running this community since 2003 without many issues but lately it feels like I'm running a kindergarten.

I was teasing you in my title!

My topic Testing Testing disappeared. Yesterday I had several posts disappear and reappear sporadically. Some posts are gone of mine that seem pretty innocuous.

I've been a good girl! In fact, I'm kind of boring, lately. :D

And yes, it does feel like a kindergarten lately. All the finger pointing, name calling, profile stalking looking to provide "back up", people fighting other people's battles that don't exist, etc. It's seriously goofy.

It will settle. I think this forum for vets (thank you, again) along with an enhanced ignore, should go a long way!

:D

Oh! And info think there are issues in the app that create issues. I don't use it personally because I can't see where I'm at, I can still see people I'm ignoring, I can't like posts successfully much of the time, etc.

I lug around a big 6+ so I simply view the full site. Much easier. For me.

I woke up in a grouchy mood this morning. Thought you were trying to stir up some trouble :-)

My topic Testing Testing disappeared. Yesterday I had several posts disappear and reappear sporadically. Some posts are gone of mine that seem pretty innocuous.

We normally delete all topics that are posted for testing purposes. Your definition of innocuous is definitely different that mine lol. I was cleaning up threads that went off topic.

I hope so as well. You are very welcome!

All these issues should be resolved once we roll out our site upgrade in a few weeks. The site is going to be responsive and a lot more user-friendly on mobile devices. Appreciate your feedback!

Gasp! I TOLD you I am behaving! So much so, it's snore city. :D

As for clearing threads that go off topic? Really? :( Isn't that the nature of forums? Discussion rather that point blank question/answer? I'm sorry to hear that, seriously. Discussion is what builds community and fosters relationship. Otherwise, it's just a bariatric web not-md.

Kisses! Go back to bed and get up on the OTHER side. :D It's all groovy.

I wish you were running a kindergarten, then Mr. Brecher could give some people a desperately deserved time out.

Really? ;-) I feel your pain. I run several and it seems to be getting a little worse every day. I have yet to figure out why. One of these days these idiots will figure out that "this is anonymous" to a point. At some point, future employers, attorneys, and the NSA can all track it back to them. Well, F them if they can't take the joke. I keep a nice file of those I don't want to ever see in my profession. I will give grace if they are under 25, but if they are older, well dang, they really should have known better.

you are so right on this. my ex-boyfriend was in HR and said that he always checked social media and there were plenty of potential interviews and even offers that were rescinded due to 'inappropriate' comments on sites most people have no idea potential employers are looking at.

      My 3 babies and my little "niece". Took on a babysitting job this past weekend. She is super tiny compared to my 3 biggies. Sitting on command for treat-os!
       
      Pre-op Liquid - Day 2 
      It was very hard today...I'm feeling some type of way from not eating the meals I was supposed to before the pre-op diet. My sister got stuck in Dallas a week before my diet and we were supposed to go on a nice dinner, but that never happened. I have super bad dry mouth and bathroom breaks are more frequent.

      Pre-op Liquid Diet - Day 1
      Had my morning cup of 8 oz Regular Orange Juice. I am ready!!! I did have 3 bites of my fiance's cheesecake last night for dinner. It was so yummy but with my former sleeve it didn't allow me any more bites.
