In your opinion, which to be blunt, doesnt count here.

I suggest you, and everyone else, get back to the subject.

It’s the team’s decision on whether or not someone has breached any T&Cs. Their site, their rules, their interpretation.

Just as you (or anyone else) may see something you consider to be “trolling” does not necessarily make it so.

There is a report post junction on this site. If you see perceived “trolling”, report it and leave it to the team. Simple.

Why would they give free services to mods on any other forum? That makes no sense.

Forgive me, but that is one of the most absurd statements I’ve read. Because you volunteer your time, for free, you should accept abuse?

I volunteer to referee kids football games, so I should accept abuse from parents? For example.

PMs are private, imo if you share the contents in public the least you could do is have the courtesy to keep names out of it ,

I full well know it is having been one, it's not much better now being an Admin.

#I was referring to Richards comment when he seemed it necessary to say it was only Sky forum mods that get free services and not any others.

If you volunteer your time, you may be even less likely to tolerate abuse as it's easier to leave than paid employment.

Re: Police to get tough on internet trolls.

damn you quoted Pierre, not much use this ignore feature.

Maybe the first stage of dealing with trolls on this forum would be a working block feature I would be a lot happier with one.

Re: Police to get tough on internet trolls.

I was also a mod once in the gaming section of a large forum, also 'elected' as the spokesperson/ambassador/diplomat for dealing with any issues with other gaming 'clans' of the many online games we played.

All unpaid voluntary, no special allowances for what I posted as a mod (rules are rules) . . made lots of friends, made a few enemies, that's life

Re: Police to get tough on internet trolls.

When we modded the original NTHellworld (when NTL owned it) one of the team successfully negotiated £200 a month plus the-then NTL staff services package for us all which meant we had the full internet, phone and tv package for something like £20 per month.

Happy days

Dark forces orchestrating social media abuse claim:

It appears that there could be an on demand industry devoted to this practice
