They would be on this the Mexican forum, but you might want to post a new subject line, not add to a old unrelated subject.

Posted a new topic for you Rosie.

How do I report an offensive private message? Seems there are trolls  here too. :(

Hi 2doggirl.

right next to your post you will see a pale grey button that says Report. You can report there or, using the same type of button next to the post you find offensive.  If it is a PM , perhaps cut and past that message on to your complaint.

We are aware that someone has attacked the system, but specific posts will help address where that attack in coming from.

Sorry for the problem, it seems to be a world wide problem now.

Thanks

Much to do about reporting posters for this or that.  Some of us aren't the reporting type, social education from our school days I'd say.  And then too some of us are not the "Just turn the other cheek" type, also a leftover from childhood education.  These feature of oneself are hard to kick, they are as natural as chewing your food. 

This is not an over-moderated forum.  I respect that and believe anyone who doesn't has never seen how bad a web forum can get; how moderators don't seem to realize moderator is from, to moderate .. to make things better, not worse.  And to form a clique with your long-time forum chums will be the death of a forum.

Very rare to find grammatical errors in postings here.   That's wonderful except for grammar nazis who thrive on making them public.  But there is a fact of life that infers it's difficult to "win" a rebuttal with sentences riddled with 5th grade grammar flubs. 

Some of us have developed ways of expressing ourselves that others find well, odd to irritating.  To have developed a good sense of irony is to me a positive human feature.  Those of us who suffer from jumping ears or batting eyes at the sound or sight of one's expressions because they never heard that at home or from people of their township are missing out.  And to call out a person as if his style is somehow inferior surly makes you look provincial.   

Love it here, Thanks for being an admin based in an awareness/intelligence that is rare on Internet forums these days.
