Well itís more of a whine really, or maybe a whinge - no on third thoughts itís definitely a RANT!

Do you simply like the word xxxxx or are you trying, for some inane reason, to get your post count up by replying to every post that crosses your path with that single word salutation?

I only ask because it just acts to devalue all the other replies that people spend time and care constructing. It shows little respect for them or the poets whose poems you visit.

Edit after counting to 10 several times.

I don't mean to be a Grinch, if you have a half reasonable explanation (or even an unreasonable one put reasonably) I'm willing to apologise and ask a Mod to delete this post (if they haven't deleted it already).

Am I off your Christmas card list?

When I was able to be here more often in the earlier days I read and replied to lots of poetry. Sometimes it was with a Wow!, a Beautifully done!, or I enjoyed this very much! I've also seen, and given, smiley faces for comments.

I don't think it is our place to critique others' replies. Some people have serious time constraints, some just naturally keep it short and sweet. No one person's reply devalues another's.

I've seen rants like this before, but never with singling out one person in particular. I think that is so uncalled for and shows a serious lack of understanding of other's time constraints and personalities.

I, for one, hope your insensitive post does get deleted, as it deserves to be.

If I didnít name xx how the heck would anyone know who I was talking about?

This is the alley - itís where rants belong and if you think my post was insensitive after the edit you should have read it before.

For one thing it mentioned time constraints like for instance how someone can read, digest and reply to a few hundred poems at a rate averaging out at five poems per minute over several hours - regardless of the poems length. I deleted that remark just in case thereís a reasonable explanation, I canít think of one but hey Iím willing to at least entertain the possibility.

But take a look at the evidence for yourself.

Yes it does, if someone (hypothetically) was cutting and pasting a single reply into poems at random as fast as their fingers could type without reading the poem, it begs the question how many other people are doing that too. If that (hypothetical) person was doing it to get 'conquistador', or some other Ďmembership statusí the membership status system is as a whole is devalued. I wouldn't know who gained their status legitimately and who just cut and pasted their way to the top.

quote:

Thatís exactly what I said before posting the question, not posting wasnít an option I considered.

If you believe this post should be deleted then delete it - youíre a moderator, you have both the ability and the right if you believe Iíve broken a forum rule.

Take the good with the bad, grinch.

I can understand your point about the implied insincerity in a one-word reply but, on the other hand based on the way the forums function, any reply either moves your poem up to the top of the list or revives it from the archives. Is that a bad thing?

He used several 'enjoyed' comments in my archived poems. I took it as a sign that he went into the archives to look for my work.....I have no complaints with that.

Denise is not  referring to broken forum rules, but more like unwritten rules of common courtesy. I'm inclined to agree with her....

Nor would I but I do have a complaint if someone is trawling down every post in the archive one by one and cutting and pasting a single reply. I donít know if thatís whatís happened, though all the evidence points that way which is why I asked for clarification.

Take a look at the link Michael - donít stop on page one the replies go further back note the reply times.

I've vented my spleen so I'm easy either way.

Well, grinch, I've known you long enough to know you are a decent person who does not try to cause unrest or throw out insults for the hell of it. I simply have to question the avenue you have taken. The Alley is a place to bring up issues that irritate one and get reponses, pro and con, from others. If you had begun a thread like MULTIPLE ONE WORD REPLIES: INSINCERE OR NOT?, then that would be appropriate and people could chime in with their opinions. To single out one person, even including their name in the title, makes it personal and limits participation.

Delete it? I;m not an admin or an Alley moderator. My beat is Open. That choice would be theirs - or yours.

I don't have deletion rights in the Alley, just in Open and the Corner Pub.

You could have vented your spleen without mentioning a specific person by name. Why would anyone other than Artic Wind need to know about your displeasure with his/her replies? A private email to the person would have been the better path to take. I wonder why you didn't choose that option? Have you asked yourself that question?

Yeah, I think an apology is in order.

I donít converse with many people on this forum via email Denise, three in fact up to about an hour ago, I find I can say pretty much everything I want to say concerning PIP somewhere in itís blue pages. I could have sent an email but decided not to, my question  was to a member and about their actions in the forum so thatís where I put it.

What did xx say when you emailed him\her Denise or arenĎt you interested in an answer, what did I say when you emailed me? Oh hang on you didn't you berated me in the Alley.  

I  canít help but notice that nobody has addressed the issue raised by my question, is this a case of shooting the messenger or are you actually looking into this. For what itís worth I donĎt mind taking a shot in the meantime so hereís an apology for xx.
------------------------------------
xxxx,

Iím sorry if I offended you by addressing you directly and by name in the PIP forum, I didnít intend any such distress but rather wanted to understand the seemingly odd nature of your recent replies in the archive forum.

I recognise that there may be a reasonable explanation to posting pattern that does not directly implicate you in any untoward act, my only intention was to ascertain the explanation from you directly. If my comments have been perceived by you as an accusation of misconduct I can only apologise unreservedly and sincerely.

---------------------------------------------

A copy of that will be winding itís way to xx directly.

If you want the post removed but canít delete it move it into the Mod discussion area until you decide what to do.

Why would I email AW? I'm not the one who was annoyed by the replies. No, I'm not particulary interested in the reasons for anyone's style of replying. To each his own. I don't think it is any of my business. But if you feel that it is your business and/or want to discuss things like this, I think you should follow Michael's advice and discuss it in general terms without naming names.

And I'm glad that you apologized to AW. It shows you are the decent person that Michael knows you to be.

Since you edited your reply after I replied...  

You asked me what AW said when I emailed him/her, not what did xx say.

Now I think you are just being childish.

No, I didn't email you privately, because I felt that a public berating of someone deserved a public response. I didn't start a post singling you out for such behavior. I merely replied to what you had already written.

Now that's all I have to say, unless you edit your previous response again.

Denise,

quote:

Ah, see thatís where Iíve been going wrong, I was also thinking of the possible chaos this type of posting could create but if youíre not interested in the reduction in bandwidth, unnecessary use of disc space and  overall reduction of speed of the forums in general thatís ok then.

Just to clarify before I start mass posting in open:

Posting a reply of any type, including perhaps a graphic and three of those cute smiley things is encouraged and condoned by you as a Moderator.

Can I include a message to that effect in the post so that everyone can join in and get their posting numbers up?

Perhaps Ron can re-write the software to minimise the problem of all the old posts being at the top with a meaningless message that takes an age to load the graphic.

Do you want me to wait until you get clarification on all that before I start posting?

Take your time, I donít intend to do any of the above, btw Iíve removed any reference to you know who, can you do the same on your posts. I still donít see the problem but Iím willing to take onboard what youíre saying to avoid any unintentional offence.

Bandwidth issues are Ron's business, not mine. If there is a problem with it, we will hear about it.

"x"ing-out the name at this point makes this whole thread a bit meaningless, don't you think? I think it would be better if you would have just deleted it, or had it deleted, and started a new one with no names mentioned.

Grinch, see what happened when you did not quote my "poem"?

"Then thy sweetened tongue shall not be tasted through thy art of words"--Tom

Grinch, woman is different on expression "thanks". It is her politeness to thank each one individually. She has no any "no-good" meaning. I  myself, at the old age as myself, do not write "thank you " in my poem thread because I do not want to push my poem to the top therefore newly posted poem has a chance to get noticed.

You shall go back to CA. There are poems waiting for you to make comments.

I'm surprised that no one except Grinch sees a problem here. All right, there is no "rule" against this sort of posting. Common sense should indicate that common courtesy prohibits it.

It certainly serves no useful purpose other than bumping up xx's post count. The down side is that it forces both the forum moderators and visitors to wade through page after page of garbage to find worthwhile posts.

As moderator of CA, I actually appreciate the fact that it moves rather slowly. That give me time to review every post for propriety. If xx were pulling that stunt there, making me go down several pages to check everything, I simply would not have time to do so.

Rest assured that, even though there is no rule against that, I would surely have words for xx about it.

I don't know that this discussion makes any difference either way but I do believe that Grinch makes a valid point. I don't know, maybe he does want to check the affected forum and is severly hindered by the excesses. Maybe it would be useful for the moderator to "mention" it to xx.

JMHO, of course.

Pete, we have had no reports of people complaining they are wading through garbage.

If xx were pulling that stunt there, making me go down several pages to check everything, I simply would not have time to do so. CA requires special  types of replies, hence the name of the forum. You needn't worry about stunt-pulling there so why create an unrealistic scenario complete with warning over a situation that will not occur?

maybe he does want to check the affected forum and is severly hindered by the excesses

Severly hindered, Pete? come on, now. Isn't that a little overly-dramatic?   Grinch is whining, ranting, venting his spleen (all his words), that's all. Insincere relies bother him....and I can relate to those thoughts. Do we knock out all insincere replies then?  Please say no because I don't have 20 hours  a day to dedicate to doing that.

We have those "Inappropriate content?" boxes on each page for a reason. If a member has a complaint against another member, his actions, or his infractions of rules he can issue a complaint which will be researched and discussed by the mods and administration. That is the proper way to handle it. We received no such complaint. Instead he chose to make his displeasure at this person public so everyone could see his rant. That is out of line for any member-friendly and respectable site.

I  can t help but notice that nobody has addressed the issue raised by my question, is this a case of shooting the messenger or are you actually looking into this  

So you are going to criticize members for not responding or  take it as a personal vendetta against you? There can be another explanation. Perhaps people just aren't interested. Perhaps they don't see the problem you do. Perhaps they do not feel the anguish you do because they consider it not worthy of being labeled a problem worth ranting about. Is who actually looking into it? Your post wasn't created to ask anyone to look into anything. It was to rant and demand explanations from a member you singled out. Yes, you have changed the title after who knows how many have seen it but the body of your post is still accusatory aimed at one unnamed member. You wanted to rant? You ranted. Don't chastise others for not joining in if they prefer not to.

OK, possible a little hyperbolic. I might have said "wading through a whole lot of stuff that they have already read and really didn't want to read again, only to learn the xx had bumped it to the top for no reason." I guess I was lazy.

quote:

Nope. Can't agree this time. Most of us do have limited free time. To have to wade through a few hundred posts just to find something new may well be a pretty severe hindrance.

Should Grinch have given a name? of course not. Should he expect a moderator to jump on correcting what he sees as wrong? Again, of course not. Is this sort of offense likely to spell the end of PIP? I surely don't think so. Is it extremely discourteous to the rest of the readers? In my humble opinion it certainly is.

Mike, although we tend to agree on most everything, I guess we'll just have to agree to disagree on this one. Since I don't have the time or interest to wade through Teen and rarely get to Open, I really don't care one way or the other how or even if this situation gets resolved. I simply thought Grinch was being a little unfairly chastised for complaining here in the Alley, the professed place for complaining, and might use a little support. If that comes to CA, I expect to take a more active interest.

Agreeing to disagree works for me, Pete, and I'm making a mental note not to pop over CA with any one words responses!

The Alley IS a place to complain but, hopefully, it will never become a place to openly confront or attack another member.

Michael,

quote:
So you are going to criticize members for not responding or take it as a personal vendetta against you?


No Iím not, I never asked for any replies from members I just asked for an answer from xx. If you Denise or anyone else wants to add a comment they can if they donít they donít. Iím not looking for any encouragement or incitement from anyone else. I think thereís an issue and Iím addressing it, if you or any other Moderator decides there isnít an issue remove or move the post, Iíll get the hint and wander off quietly to another thread. As I understand it you can move the thread to a moderator discussion area, why donít you do that?

A personal vendetta! Give me a break Michael unless youíre intending to send me a horses head by post this is little more than a minor disagreement and, as far as Iím concerned isnít likely to escalate into anything more.

quote:
There can be another explanation. Perhaps people just aren't interested. Perhaps they don't see the problem you do. Perhaps they do not feel the anguish you do because they consider it not worthy of being labeled a problem worth ranting about.


Or maybe they just donít want to get into a minor disagreement with a couple of mods, or maybe they prefer to email support to the poster, or maybe they saw it as a question directed at xx and decided theyíd let him speak for himself. Who knows? Who cares?

  
quote:
Is who actually looking into it?


The moderators.

As I said to Denise if youíve looked into it and discussed the possible implications and are happy to condone multiple cut and paste replies to get your posting numbers up fine, get the post deleted and IĎll stop ranting.

Itís not my bandwidth or server and if the pages slow down I can just sit back and wait or go somewhere else, though Iíd prefer it if things just stayed as they are - hence my question.

If you let one member post in the way xx is at the moment it opens the floodgates for every other member thatís that way inclined, if they cut and paste a link to graphic and add a couple of smilies itíd probably take as few as three such posters to render this site unusable. Isnít that something someone should be looking into?

Personal attacks are against the rules Michael, if Iíve broken that rule as you're suggesting I apologise.

Welcome to the Alley. This is the place for complaints, gripes, griches, problems, questions, and the discussion of such. Feel free to express yourself in whatever fashion you please, but keep in mind that personal attacks, profanities, and other obscene language will not be tolerated. Since this forum is not restricted, minors will have access to the topics. So let's try to keep it clean.


Now, if you do happen to have a personal beef with another member, try emailing them first. If no resolution is possible, and if you really feel like airing your dirty laundry, then by all means, bring it to the Alley. Just don't get bent if you don't get the desired result.


If you break the rules, I will email or IM you, asking that you edit your posting. If this does not happen, then I will either edit, lock, and/or delete the offending post or reply. I'd rather not, since I believe in freedom of speech. However, I also believe in the responsibility that comes with that right.

actually, I ran out of horse's heads years ago and, besides, I don't care for spaghetti. My reply was in response to your question is this a case of shooting the messenger or are you actually looking into this

As I said to Denise if you ve looked into it and discussed the possible implications and are happy to condone multiple cut and paste replies to get your posting numbers up fine, get the post deleted and I ll stop ranting.

..and,as I have said earlier in this post, tickets are issued to research these possibilities of problems. Had you sent one instead of going the direct confrontation route  we would have investigated. Nowhere in your introduction were we asked to.

It s not my bandwidth or server and if the pages slow down I can just sit back and wait or go somewhere else, though I d prefer it if things just stayed as they are - hence my question.

Nope, your "question" was a rant.

if they cut and paste a link to graphic and add a couple of smilies it d probably take as few as three such posters to render this site unusable. Isn t that something someone should be looking into?

Absolutely. All the more reason to issue a ticket, informing us of a potential problem.

I have checked into this. The poet in question has 2184 posts, 23 of them posted poems, which leaves 2159 comments. Of those 2159 comments, 86 of them have been either ENJOYED! or LOVED IT!  That leaves 2073 which weren't.  At this point I don't see that as a problem.

I DO appreciate this coming to our attention to be investigated. I just wish that you and other members would use the INAPPROPRIATE CONTENT? box to issue tickets, which causes the moderators to investigate....and let me assure you that we DO investigate all complaints or reports of problems.

...and disregard the dead fish in the mail

Mike, feel perfectly free to give an occasional one word response in CA if you want. I don't really expect you will do that though. I can accept one word responses. Sometimes one word may say it all. What I have a problem with is 100 of those one word responses all dumped in the course of a half hour. I can't accept that as sincere.

Micheal far be it for me to question your ability to investigate issues (or to add up) but thereís at least 521 in Teen#3 alone! All of them added since 17th of Nov this year.

If you click on the link I supplied it should take you straight to them.

I think your figures are probably skewed due to the fact that youíve used the search facility which probably needs itís index rebuilding at regular intervals. If Iím right that would mean that the search engine only returns results since the last index, which in turn means it isnít picking up the threads Iím talking about.

Iíll take on board your comments about making people aware of potential problems, but after the response Iíve got in this thread I think Iíll just ignore anything I see in the future. As Denise pointed out the bandwidth and server are Ronís problems not ours and IĎd advise all members to do the same, itís just not worth the hassle.
