Trouble making trolls on Current

I am here to report a long time trouble maker who has an army of stalking trolls that keep flagging my posts that are not in violation of Current's Terms and Conditions

    • JessMag: I am totally confused. Is there a rule somewhere I can read about flagging? As I understand it, we should be flagging any comments that are abusive (either by excessive raging and belittling offensive remarks, or by outright vulgar commentary) to me personally or to the rest of the chatline. Yet I have been warned - NOT by Maasanov or Mr. Hussey or by Mishima - TO NEVER FLAG certain people so I never have. So really, why is that box for flagging even there? I'm a firm believer in free speech and if I wanted to hear that kind of free speech that some of the people here recite, I'd go to a chat line that relishes it. I came here in hopes of hearing a peaceful dialogue of differing points of view - Not to hear insult after insult with no attempt at a constructive difference of opinion. And then to hear a Spin placed against the rest of us - to what gain? Get us all kicked out? Is that really acceptible here? Half my badges have been removed. I don't know who's at fault for that. I've had no warning from Current about this.

      Instead of being able to join in peaceful, enlightening, conversation, I find myself here trying to understand Current's true position about that "flag" box, and what I'm finding is that the warning to me is absolutely true.

      I've had to keep my antivirus protection on continually monitoring. In all of 2011 it intercepted only 2 attempted virus attacks. Since late November 23rd or 24th this year (none prior to that date in all of 2012, it has intercepted 41. If I knew a way to send you my Avast report on this matter, I would. If this continues, I will be leaving this site. I only stay to receive your advices.

      ***************************************************************

      Warned by whom? What "certain people" should never be flagged? Who gave you those instructions?

      Whoever it was, have you questioned WHY they would give you such instructions in the first place? Sounds suspicious.

      You are wrong about maasanova and Current Moderation should step up to the plate and address this, accordingly. Unfortunately, that hasn't happened *yet*.

    LOL I just read some of MarshainFlorida's posts that have been deleted. Ok, we can hash it out here!

    I can handle the belittling insults, but take offense to crazy claims that I'm launching viruses and that I'm "dangerous" hahaha...ok, sure.

    Sounds like when freecrack said that I was crazy and going to kill someone.

    Jessmag I'm sorry you have to deal with this nonsense. Just forget about the flagging nonsense as the crew have laid off for now, but I'll let you know if they start up again.

  • lol @ you being "dangerous", maasanova.

    Actually, I don't think "MarciainFlorida's posts have been deleted" on this page. Just open up "view 8 more comments" and (I can see) that they're still there.

    Glad to hear the crew backed off on the flagging. It should have never happened to begin with; this whole ordeal sounds like it was probably just another one of the crew's smear campaigns via PM (or e-mail).

  • Our Community Standards can be found here: http://current.com/s/community_standa...

    There are no rules against flagging any other users, and no one on our moderation staff has ever told any user they are forbidden from flagging someone. Overusing the flags just to hide comments you don't like can be grounds for a warning or suspension, but there is no one you cannot flag.
