Just discovered that mcn did not listen to my previous e mail about a fake profile set up with my real name and pictures of me that i uploaded last year onto different threads of myself so i will never ever do this again .....surely this is some form of web abuse which is illegal (cyber bullying ) not happy mcn sort it out (liam )

it seems to me

that the "troll" and "sock Puppet" problem on here could be very easily sorted out by having a few moderators drawn from Amongst the regulars? As motorcycle news don't seem to interested in doing it themselves.

They tried that a few year's ago ...it was a disaster with the member moderators getting abuse for trying to do their job.

Sky volunteered to be one along with Spire and haplessdan.

But MCN would not give them proper Mod powers like most sites. ie. they could not ban members or delete threads - only individual posts as long as it wasn't the initial post in a thread.  

It was like sending troops into battle armed with a water pistol!

The wankers who were causing trouble with fake usernames just turned on the mods, starting thread after thread with personal abuse in the title which the 'mods' could not delete. They also chose to do it on Friday evenings knowing full well MCN staff mods would not be back till Monday allowing the abuse to remain on the site all weekend.

We complained to MCN about it but they said they could not give non staff full control because the forum here is linked to the main MCN site unlike most normal Forums and a member Mod could have then gone into the MCN site and change articles / race results etc...:blink:

The only way to deal with the trolls is to ignore them ...or hunt them down and kill them. :winkie:

Personally I favour the 'killing them' option. :tongue:

It's a more 'permanent fix'. :winkie:.
