Cyber Tips – Don't Waste Your Time

On many sites users do not believe that the Owners run it for the money and don’t care about them or their issues.

Many users think they can contact Admin and ‘something will be done’.

They don’t realise that all that Admin does is collect the Ad money ( and often fudge it so that those who make the site get a fraction of what they are owed)

For some strange reason Users believe they can contact the Owner and he/she/it actually cares if they live or die.

Because of this attribution of morality to site owners there are user who become ‘do-gooders’ .  They think the owners care about the users and that there is a way they can be contacted and deal with user issues.

One might as well have a conversation with a boulder blocking a path.  

It is more than a waste of time for any user to attribute interest/concern/ to an Owner of a site.  If on that first message to Admin nothing is done, then take that as your permanent answer.

And don’t waste your time.

CHECK AND AGAIN

Everyone knows the Internet is full of fraud.  From fake sites to scams to so-called ‘humour’ , unless you know what you are doing and know how to do it, you’ll tumble head first into fabrications and believe falsehoods.

Lawyers know that direct questions have rehearsed answers so will ask the indirect,  will ask for bits and pieces that the liar would not have assem

  1. First, we’ve asked and gotten many features added and removed from this site. So they do listen. Do they listen as well as I wish they did, no.

    This is a broad categorization and isn’t really fair. Yes, the internet is full of fraud. But it is also a source of information.

    There is another side, can you write to that?

    • Due to the fact there is no Edit button, the second section could not be deleted. That belongs to a totally different article I will publish in a day or so.
      If there was a way I could have edited the item, unpublished it, I would have.

      Now what were you saying about all the Features?

          • first we got an edit button for a time period that writers abused on the site so we lost it.

            you can no longer downvote a comment
            you can block a user (although that one was painful)
            We had an edit button for a time. Again users abused it.

            i can keep going. All of these were asked by the community starting last July.

        • I can understand the ‘trick’ of the edit application. And I do remember once logging on and someone I never saw before had downvoted all my current articles so I got that.

          I think I recall a user who was abusive and was blocked.

        • I can’t get my head around how could someone abuse the edit? They can only edit their own work. So? I planned to go back over my articles where I found misspellings, (a few… well.. more than a few) bad paragraphing (absolutely hate looking at those articles) and where I made grammatical errors (not many).

          And by the time I was ready, the edit was gone. So is the draft button. It doesn’t work. In a few cases I would have liked to save a draft… I used to save drafts, then recheck before posting.

          • so there was a bug in the edit. When you edited a post, it kept all its previous status but started the timer over at 0.

            they popped right to the top of the list (trending and most commented). A couple of folks took advantage and basically blocked anyone from being on the most commented or trending list for a couple of weeks.

            Then the admins took it away.

          • that is why i keep focused on that and send the posts to the admin team once a month.

            Like i said we’ve gotten a few things resolved overall. I won’t give up.

        • I was minding my own business. Log on, publish, log off. Log on, glance at notifications, respond, publish, log off. That’s it. I have already been squashed by the Admin. I’ve been barred for like a month… so I stay in the corners.

        • I didn’t do anything. I just couldn’t publish. I think I was doing too well so I couldn’t publish for like a month and then got a message I was a Ver. User.

          Not knowing what I was locked out for, I just didn’t read/comment anywhere. Just stayed to myself.

          • ah it wasn’t you and you weren’t locked out.

            There were about 10 of you that couldn’t publish at that time. you were all made verified users!

        • All of a sudden, no word, no warning, I couldn’t publish. It was crazy, felt wierd. Then I was made a Ver. User. It just creeped me out.

          I didn’t get into anything with another user, and when people posted tongue pullers I didn’t answer.

          • yes it wasn’t you, it was literally a bunch of users. I felt horrible for all of them, kept sending messages to the admins. They finally responded. then you were all verified users!
