    Default Compliments to this site's admin and mods and users :)

    I've been reading through this site and I have to say I am so impressed with it! It really seems like problems with "trolls" and the like are few, far between, and dealt with in a quick and fair manner, and that all of the real users of this site are genuinely cool people!

    I laughed when I read that a few months ago, someone got banned for sending inappropriately explicit unasked for PMs...because the last place I tried online...a general chat billed as "100% clean chat" brought me about five of those every time I signed on...even though it says in my profile that I am not at all interested in that kind of talk...even in private.

    And on another site...this one for a health problem...a 46 yr old male member seemed very nice...until I found out he was engaged and later married in the same week that I met two of his "girlfriends"...one of them being a 16 year old girl. (Yes, I turned that in to a cybercrime group that contacts the appropriate authorities) and I also reported it to the site. Unfortunately, the site administrators became angry at ME for suggesting their site wasn't perfect and allowed him to come right back and talk to more women!

    And then there are the sites that allow two people to take it over and push their own agendas..or start bullying others..grrrr...

    I'd like so see someone try ANYTHING like any of those things here!

    Since I joined this site, I have had nothing but people going out of their way to support me in learning belly dance and be completely friendly and kind.

    Love you guys!

    No, but you could be the poster child for how some other fora should behave

    Rania...that is awful...the sites I had the most problems with were depression sites too...some sites get so "cliquish" that there are some people who can do no wrong on the site, no matter what they do...and they become a sort of "online hangout" for one little crowd who is out to preserve their little spot even if it's at the expense of some of the other people who need it. That site probably didn't like it that you spoke up when one of the "in crowd" did something wrong....nor did they like it that you noted plagarism was happening on their site.

    I like the overall atmosphere and mood here too....people post serious things, light notes, on topic, off topic...there's a nice variety.

    Oooh how sweet of you to say so
    Salome has set a very good tone and some guidelines for us mods and I know we all try to follow in the best way we can. There have been trolls, allright, and other strange beings, and we have moved threads to the wrong place and been too slow in reacting to abusive behaviour, but generally it seems to work fine.

    The forum-users are mostly just bringing loads of joy into my life

    Salome and OD rocks!!

    I like this forum a lot because we have so many users from all over the world. You don't JUST get the American or British perspective like you do on a lot of other forums.

    HUGS back to ya!
