INSULTING MESSAGES

Hi everone,
I have just recieved several messages from a member not just insulting me, but my Quizzes. Calling them juvenile and me sad etc etc. Now i don't try to come across as a trivia expert, i just hope some of my quizzes are fun...
When i have looked at the members profile, he is classed as a "bomber" can some one tell me what this is?
Thanks everone

A bomber is someone who will take your quiz and give you a really low score just to screw with your average...if he is classified as a bomber it means Sploofus knows and his scores won't count in your average!

I've been getting some mean ones lately, and it doesn't bother me a bit. I actually have a laugh when I get a "Worst quiz I ever took" or "I suppose you're trying to be cute". But it occurs to me that they might hurt the feelings of people more sensitive. Should I report non-constructive quiz-bashing?

Hi again,
The messages really didn't bother me that much, the nicer ones outweigh the bad.. it's just a shame these people have not got anything better to do!
The thing that made me laugh about this, is that the messenger did not even come close to getting all of the questions correct!!!!

I have been so lucky! I have never received a negative message.

I honestly think that anyone who sends insulting or offensive messages must have no life! A friend of mine PMd me yesterday to warn about a new member here who sent her some nasty PMs. I wonder if it might be the same person? I would report it to Justin, just in case. If it's the same loser, the loser should be terminated.

geniuswaitress, all those nasty messages are from me, playing under different identities. My mission is to slowly grind you down, wear away your defenses, make you beg for mercy and THEN maybe you'll tell me the secret of how you write such amazing quizzes

Dougal I would put that person on your Blocked Sender list under messaging. That way you won't have to read his garbage. Margie

Report nasty/derogatory massages to Sploofus..this kind of behavior should not have be be endured by anyone.
Bad attitude is really not tolerable; when you report it, you may be saving someone else from this person's nastiness.

If you get a nasty/inappropriate message, Block the sender. Copy and send the message to sploofus on a support ticket. Take a moment to feel sorry for the person who self-esteem is so low that they must resort to elevating their worth by insulting strangers through an anonymous message system.

I try to give out positive feedback on quizzes. Hopefully it will encourage the author to write more. If it is a bad quiz I just don't give feedback and avoid the author's quizzes. I believe that is punishment enough.

Thanks Debbie, for posting this message and for the fabulous responses from everyone else. If I had gotten the same rotten reponse to one of my quizzes, I would have been just crushed. Now, I know how to handle that sort of nonsense!

Don't let the %@#*!$'s get you down!

Some people are just miserable. Let them drown in their self pity and do not feel bad at all about allowing them to indulge in their own misery. You, as a quiz writer, are an intellectual with a passion. Pat yourself on the back every time you get a message from one of those losers and be glad that you are not "one of them".

Keep up the good work!
Justin
