Supporters of Bernie are being trolled with pms. Blocking private messages from someone is easy.
The unwelcome message is in your inbox. Under "author," will appear the name of the trolling sender. Clicking on the name of the author of the unwelcome message will get you to the profile of the trolling sender. At the top of the profile, you will find an "ignore" tab. Click on it.
You will then be offered (1) the option of ignoring both (a) all posts of that sender and (b) private messages from that sender or (2) the option of ignoring that sender only for the purpose of keeping his or her private messages out of your inbox.
Any questions, feel free to pm me, as long as it's not for the purpose of trolling me about the primary. That's just weird.
I got a PM from that person a while back while they were on a time out.
Sad to see so many posters there still active members here.
It's a terrible thing for the DU community, the plotting and stalking and worse-than-junior high school bullying being organized in plain view.
Or somewhat plain view. I guess as Hillary continues to sink that it will get worse for them, their antics will grow more mean.
They just closed one of the forums over there to members only (the political pub). They can have all the private little conversations they want now without anyone who isn't a member reading it. Seriously...are you folks adults?
I guess they must be a little bit embarrassed about some of the things they have to say. They can't say it openly here, and now they can't say it openly there, because they don't want anyone here to be able to see it (because it really does not look very good).
I think this is hysterical.
I've seen board melt downs and splits before and it is pretty funny how juvenile some people get in the process of this happening.
I do hope, sincerely, that they get their emotions in control and some, at least, of them come back here.
You see, in spite of what they want, the democratic party really is a big tent, and we can accommodate a lot of different view points. So come on back, after you have finished your tantrums. Nobody is kicking you out here.
DU obsessing over HillarySupporters, deserves every bit of agita derived therefrom.
No agita here. I'm just curious to see what members I will want to avoid in the future, and it's been an amusing and enlightening process (and in some cases saddening). I only found out about this new forum a couple of days ago and I've already seen enough to get an idea of who's who.
As long as they keep it over there, it's fine. If people start bringing fights over here from over there, I will have a problem with it. Discussing a board now and then, is a lot different than discussing certain people who might be or have been members here. To me that's a no no on an open forum.
I am annoyed that I spend so much time posting here, but at least I am posting about things that exist in real life, such as elections; and, for the most part, about things that matter to me and others in real life. Spending time reading another message board to see posts of people I don't know, yet hate, and then posting about those posts and those screen names--UGH. Just kill me now.
probably won't do anything about it, but maybe if enough of us alert on the abuse, they will start to pay attention.
A couple of messages I got recently made no sense to me whatever, but I chalked those up simply to pm-ing while under the influence.
their true colors were showing clear as could be to these far-sighted, been there/done that eyes long ago.
Informative for those that may not have known.
My nerves are much better if I stay mostly here in Bernie's Happy Place.
Someone had posted on another thread that he or she did not know how to block someone from the inbox.
Maybe some day I will be worthy of receiving troll mail!
Just ask. (I'm all heart, I tells ya.)
but if I get attacked via email I will post it publicly in an OP. If they start getting exposed they will stop soon enough.
have received emails from people on DU "vacation."
I don't let cowards intimidate me, never have.
Your advice is solid, block them and move on.
