Hi.

 

Was wondering if there is a way to block / report / stop people trolling me?

 

On a couple of posts I've made two people in particular have taken personal stances on questions I've asked, and instead of answering, simply slag me off.

 

Is there a block / report function on this site?

 

Thanks.

left hand column "edit ignore list"

 

PM one of the admins to complain about me, or hit the little report symbol on the bottom on my posts - the warning triangle


Never assume anyone on the internet is who they say they are. Only rely on advice from insured professionals you have paid for!

Please could you post a link to the posts which you are complaining. You can link to those specific posts by clicking the #number at the top right of the post. For instance, the post I am making now will display as #4.

 

However, especially people who are quite new to a forum and often are asking for help on quite personal or stressful problems, can sometimes feel exposed when the responses they receive are given in public – of course this is a public forum. Therefore it is possible to become rather too sensitive to comments made by people who in reality are only seeking to help.

 

It is also easy to misconstrue people's intentions because of course all you can do is read their comments without seeing any of the body language or the nuances which are normally extremely important in face-to-face communications.

 

I'm afraid that it is the nature of Internet forums everywhere, but sometimes one must be a little more resilient – and most of the time people respond to posts have no ill intention whatsoever

Matter of life.

The internet makes everyone sharp and cocky, same characters in real life would be running away just if you looked at them.

Nothing you can really do apart from reporting to admin, but as in every other internet platform there are the ones who can say whatever they want and the others who get a beating at first unconventional post.

Thank you.

 

I suppose that I might have taken a softer line but I have to say that I wouldn't call this trolling by any means. Also, I can see that there have been at least a couple of people on your thread who have been trying hard to advise you in a particular way and am sorry to say that you seem to be caught up on some personal issue which unfortunately is not really relevant even though it might seem to be hugely important to you – and from your own personal perspective, I'm sure it is.

 

As I say, although I might have taken a softer line, I can tell you that the quality of the advice that you are receiving on the subject is a thousand times better than I could ever give. I think it would probably help you generally if you tried to look at the matter less emotionally and deal with it in a pragmatic way – which is I think what is being recommended to you.

 

I'm sure that you are extremely anxious about the situation and I'm certain that that is not helping the way that you perceive things either at work or on this forum. However, I can assure you that we are absolutely on your side in terms of giving you the best advice. Being on your side doesn't necessarily mean that we are saying you are right. It only means that the advice we are giving you is really calculated to provide the best possible solution for you.

 

There is certainly no trolling here and if you were ever trolled you would understand what it really is and how bitter an experience it can be. Being followed around by someone and constantly attacked and denigrated for no particular reason other than to satisfy some malicious intention. It's very nasty.

 

None of that is happening here. I should listen carefully to what is being said to you and in particular try to clear away some of the emotional haze that is probably distorting your view of what is happening at work and here. I'm sure it is easier said than done.

So, what is your view of the replies the OP is referring to?

Not “other threads”, but this thread and the OP’s thread.

Insults / trolling? Or valid points / comments?

Valid points, perhaps a slightly more understanding and polite approach would avoid new members feeling hammered.

Some people have thick skin, some others don't.
